So, for all practical purposes, it is over.
Hillary Clinton likely won’t be a criminal.  At least, not now, and not about her emails.

The FBI Director James B. Comey, in a rather unprecedent manner, announced that while Hillary Clinton was reckless and careless and while some really bad people could have invaded classified documents, she did not have the intent needed to be violative of relevant laws.
Moments after Comey completed his announcement, I decided to render my opinion using Youtube streaming. 
My overall points:
Comey, based upon his analysis appears to be correct.  A point I have been making ever since the word “crime” was associated with Hillary and email, has been—if the FBI cannot find the intent to violate the law, there would be no crime.
Reckless, careless?  Absolutely.
But, not illegal to the extent that it would be criminal.  If we want to change the law, then, let’s do so.  If we want to charge people with gross negligence, then, that is what Congress is for and why it is being paid.  
However, Donald Trump has another opinion which he has trumpeted now for months.  Under no circumstance can the FBI not conclude that she did not violate the law.  Trump has a pattern of opining about things of which he has no knowledge.  He has recently stated on twitter that she absolutely should be indicted because what she did was wrong.  That is not enough, and Trump should know this.  
You don’t indict people because they’ve done something “wrong”.
If that were the case, in my opinion, Trump would be in jail for a long long period of time before seeing the light of day.
For one, making that type of statement is an insult to the hard working FBI agents who are non-political and are employed regardless who might be President.
Obviously, I said much more than this overview.  I invite you to watch and to share with others.

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
