Among his biggest strokes of free-wheeling capitalism was the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, which repealed the Glass-Steagall Act, a cornerstone of Depression-era regulation. He also signed the Commodity Futures Modernization Act, which exempted credit-default swaps from regulation. In 1995 Clinton loosened housing rules by rewriting the Community Reinvestment Act, which put added pressure on banks to lend in low-income neighborhoods. [ Reply | More ]

I reach out AND let DC get in trouble. You don't have to reach out as a PITA who wants snowflake to be coddled. You could just let the teacher know what the problem is, know you're aware, reinforce home/school consequences, and make a plan for how to work on this in the future. Unless it's a public school with 30 kids in the class and one teacher. Then he better learn to get with it sooner rather than later. [ Reply | More ]

At least once a week we get a "Gertrude lost her math sheet, would someone scan it and email it to me" plea.

She isn't "bad". She is a continuation of Obama's policies, which were milquetoast in his desire to appease the Republicans. In fact, there is almost no difference between Obama's policies and the policies of the OLD Republican party when it was fiscally conservative 20 years ago and not completely wacko. However, Democrats believe that we have tried "Republican 1975" policies long enough and it is time to go back to the time of FDR and Eisenhower and make this country GREAT again! Invest in our COUNTRY, not in billionaires because we think that if they get rich enough, some will "trickle down" or they will be nice enough to fund some charities to help the 99%. [ Reply | More ]

Clinton Foundation taken major donations from foreign governments/related entities, before and after she was Sec of State and she doesn't want the emails on record- that's why she had the server off public record. [ Reply | More ]

She takes a $650,000 campaign donation from Goldman Sachs, but it has NO influence whatsoever on her votes. How could anyone think it would? [ Reply | More ]

No, people who WORK at GS donated to her. Why would it matter what individuals who work at a company do? Does your company control your donations? I personally donate based on my own personal views, and my employer has nothing to do with it. [ Reply | More ]

Do you think the same for every interest group that donates, or just the ones you disagree with? Seriously. Hillary gets huge donations from planned parenthood and naral, but I'm certain she's push legislation and executive orders to their benefit even if they supported Bernie, because she believes in those issues. Getting an audience with a public official doesn't mean they will change their beliefs and vote against their conscience, it just doesn't. [ Reply | More ]

Really? Perhaps you haven't been politically active in the last 20 years, but she is smart and competent and believers in 90% of the things I do and in a bleeding heart liberal, but also a pragmatist. Does she have a lot of personal baggage though, yes. [ Reply | More ]

she's really not bad. she's waffled on a few things (as do ALL politicians), but some of her stances that have changed are natural progressions. people act liek occasionally changing stance is a bad thing, but i would rather a politician reexamine their belief systems occasionally than dig their heels in and not take heed of changes in the environment.

Of course the will. I came from coal mining country and they've been sold a bill of goods that this is the only viable industry in the area. The population needs to be retrained to catch up with the rest of the world. Dirty coal is out. We need to move forward to benefit everyone. [ Reply | More ]

Can't speak about AS but we love Browning. The faculty is amazing - a deep bench of strong educators who really invest in the boys. Very nice kids. Love that it is K-12 - both because the older boys are so so good to the younger boys, and because we won't have to go through the horrors of school applications again until college. [ Reply | More ]

Browning. One of the stupidest people I ever met taught third grade at A-S. We were on a nonprofit board together. I couldn't believe he was responsible for standing in front of a room full of children and saying things they might actually believe. [ Reply | More ]

Browning. Really lovely school. Personalized attention, small classes. Strong STEM program. Not all the boys stay through 12 but those that do have been getting into some great schools. Either way, both great choices. Congrats! [ Reply | More ]
