    Of course not. Everyone engages in some form of hypocrisy. In this case however, it's some on the right who are hypocritical.

    An interesting aside, 7 posts by left of centers and only 2 actually concerning the topic. As one left of center stated "this has been posted for half an hour and the silence is deafening", tis true, but the silence is apparently on the left.
    It's ok if you disagree with me. I can't force you to be right.

    Not everyone understands that...admits it.

    The way I look at it, if it's true, it's true, no use denying it, when it's put into print for all to see....right?

    So, my question to all the ones that constantly brought up "pay to play" during the 2016 campaign (you all know who you are), is why are you "suddenly" so quiet now?

    http://www.latimes.com/politics/la-n...508-story.html
    He paid ATT for help with a merger with Time Warner. Trump's adminstration opposes that. What's your point? Where is pay to play when Trump goes the other way. Not very smart.

    On the other hand the Clintons played it for real. Too bad for you to post a thread that gets you nowhere.

    Didn't know there was a time limit on discussions. It's 10 a.m. here and Yet I managed to destroy your whole thread with my first post. You and your buddy can do better than this...or maybe not.

    My thread is about the pay to play that Cohen setup to give corporations access to Trump. Surely even you can see the difference. Why aren't you concerned about entities paying to gain access to Trump and government, like you were with Clinton? Did you ever once give a damn about the entities that hacked the servers to leak the emails? Didn't think so.
    Pay to play fails. Cohen is not now, nor has he ever been in the government. Nor are there indications that anyone who paid Cohen benefitted from special treatment by President Trump or any part of his administration. Do you know otherwise?
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    How do you know the servers were hacked? Which servers do you speak of? The DNC? No one in authority ever had access to the servers. Let's begin there.

    Nah, he thought he had something but had nothing. In fact, had it backwards. He not as smart as he thinks, is he?

    What a huge thread fail. Even a simple check would have blown this up. Pay to get a deal and don't get it and ...

    Wow, got real quiet around here suddenly.
