” Hillary Clinton cried ‘woe is me’ as she lamented on the ‘fact’ that she and her husband Bill were not only dead broke when they left the White House, they were also, according to Hillary, in debt. Given the fact that they lived in the White House for 8 years with nearly all of their expenses paid, many have found that supposed fact that Hillary is trying to sell to be simple not believable. In addition, the fact that Hillary received an $8 million signing bonus for her memoirs soon after they left the White House makes her claim even more laughable.
Charging $200,000 per speech, Bill and Hillary Clinton have raked in the dough to help pay for the houses that Hillary claims they struggled to afford. They have supposedly made over $100 million since they left the White House.
Caleb Bonham, from Campus Reform, ventured onto the Georgetown Campus in Washington, DC to collect donations from students for the “Hillary Clinton Fund for Broke Politicians.” The reactions from the students are quite funny and some of them have some choice words that address Hillary’s claim. The fund received a whopping $5.62 in total donations which, Campus Reform says, was sent to the Clintons posh residence in D.C.”

” I watched The Lego Movie once again. Like the first time, I cried like a little kid. It’s a good movie, but the strong emotional reaction came from deep inside, firing the same childhood memories that The Lego Memory Lane—Leg0 HQ’s underground secret vault with all their sets—did when I visited it in Billund, Denmark.
In Billund, everything is awesome. I was there back in June 2008 during an exclusive tour of the factory and it’s a magical wonderland. I saw how bricks and minifigs are made. How they store them in a giant 65-foot-high Lego cathedral controlled by robots—which seems out of Willy Wonka. Then I visited their museum house—the original family home of the company founder—which has some of the best and most famous Lego sets in history on display.
But it was under that house where I found the Holy Grail of Nostalgia, a high security vault that contains every Lego set in history. This is the article I wrote about it back then. I realized it contains the reason why The Lego Movie hit me right in the feels.
I have to confess that life hasn’t been very good lately. Work around the clock, not enough free time, trying to have kids and crashing badly… all while moving to a country I don’t particularly like, away from my best friends and family. Maybe that’s why visiting Lego’s Memory Lane-the secret vault guarding almost every Lego set ever manufactured-touched me in a way I didn’t expect.
This wasn’t amazement or simple awe. I was already astonished to no end by the tour of the Lego factory. No, this was something else, something bigger than the impressive view of the 4,720 Lego sets inside this lair. These weren’t just simple boxes full of bricks. These were tickets to ride a time portal to emotions and simpler days long forgotten.”

” If your parents or family have ever complained about your time as a child, take that as a compliment. The hardest children to raise are often the most clever; they can just outwit their parents, making life hard for them. Take these kids for example. They knew what their teachers wanted them to do… but they decided to do something way more awesome.
Most adults wouldn’t be able to think of responses that are this witty or clever. Even though these are the wrong answers, I would have given theses kids an A+.”

This young man has a dilemma on his hands that most men can only dream of … watch and smile
” Monday was a big day for the nation’s cyber police. The Justice Department charged five Chinese military officials with hacking, and brought charges against the creators of powerful hacking software.
But FBI Director James B. Comey said Monday that if the FBI hopes to continue to keep pace with cyber criminals, the organization may have to loosen up its no-tolerance policy for hiring those who like to smoke marijuana.
Congress has authorized the FBI to add 2,000 personnel to its rolls this year, and many of those new recruits will be assigned to tackle cyber crimes, a growing priority for the agency. And that’s a problem, Mr. Comey told the White Collar Crime Institute, an annual conference held at the New York City Bar Association in Manhattan. A lot of the nation’s top computer programmers and hacking gurus are also fond of marijuana.
“ I have to hire a great work force to compete with those cyber criminals and some of those kids want to smoke weed on the way to the interview,” Mr. Comey said.
Mr. Comey said that the agency was “grappling with the question right now” of how to amend the agency’s marijuana policies, which excludes from consideration anyone who has smoked marijuana in the previous three years, according to the FBI’s Web site. One conference goer asked Mr. Comey about a friend who had shied away from applying because of the policy. “He should go ahead and apply,” despite the marijuana use, Mr. Comey said.”

” When Danny Keefe was born, his parents were told he would be severely handicapped both physically and mentally due to a serious brain hemorrhage.
But the dapper little boy with the infectious smile and indomitable spirit defied those predictions, the Enterprise reported.
The Mitchell Elementary School kindergartner is just like any other 6-year-old in every way but two, his grandfather Richard Osterman said.
Danny speaks with difficulty due to childhood apraxia of speech (CAS) and he wears a suit and tie every day by his own choosing.
“ CAS has not kept Danny down. He keeps up with his siblings as well as a host of friends both children and adults,” Osterman said.
Danny, the official waterboy for the Bridgewater Badgers Div. 5 Peewees, cuts quite a figure on the sidelines with his suit and fedora, like a miniature Tom Landry, Osterman said. And he’s forged an unbreakable bond with the boys on the team, his parents said.
So, when the quarterback, Tommy Cooney, heard Danny was getting picked on because of the way he speaks, he took it upon himself to do something about it.
The 11-year-old Williams Intermediate School fifth-grader decided to wear a suit to school just like Danny in a show of support for his young friend.
“ He’s such a good person. He doesn’t let it bother him. He goes on with his day. He’s a 6-year-old kid. We should all respect that,” said Tommy, whose father, Tom, is the team’s head coach.
Tommy told his fellow Badgers about “Danny Appreciation Day” and they all thought it was a great idea, including Danny’s older brother Tim, 10, who plays on the team.
On Wednesday, Nov. 20, more than 40 students from Mitchell and Williams crowded around the little boy with the winning personality in the Williams library cheering “Danny, Danny.” “

” It was an ethical dilemma straight from the textbooks: Imagine you and two of your friends find a small fortune of cash inside a crummy old couch you bought for cheap at a second-hand shop. Would you trace the money back to its owner, or would you keep it to spend on your heart’s deepest desires? A SUNY New Paltz student and two friends dealt with this dilemma first hand early March 2014.
Third-year geology student Reese Werkhoven, Mount Holyoke College graduate Cally Guasti and SUNY New Paltz graduate Lara Russo were getting cozy on their new couch for the first time, when Werkhoven ruffled himself a plastic envelope from under the couch’s patchy arm.
“ I almost peed,” Werkhoven said. Inside the envelope was a wad of twenties that added up to $700.
“ The most money I’d ever found in a couch was like fifty cents. Honestly, I’d be ecstatic to find just $5 in a couch.”
The group began a thorough excavation, maneuvering the couch in all directions so that every linty crevice could be probed to find more money.
“ Just when we thought we pulled out the last envelope we’d find another $1,000 a few minutes later,” said Guasti.
Twenty minutes after sitting on an old musky couch, three college students were now miraculously standing on $40,000 in cash.
For a while, there were no notes, no names, or anything else that could have told them who the money belonged to. For all they knew the money was fair game.
Then there was a game changer. Russo found a woman’s name on one of the envelopes.
“ We had a lot of moral discussions about the money,” Russo said. “We all agreed that we had to bring the money back to whoever it belonged to… it’s their money– we didn’t earn it. However, there were a lot of gray areas we had to consider.”
” Doctors say the chances of an adult surviving a fall from an 11-story balcony are small. Somehow, 1-year-old Musa Dayib fell from a balcony on Sunday and survived.
” It’s definitely a miracle. It’s God’s gift to his family. Kids don’t fall this far and make it often. Especially without a serious brain injury. You or I would’ve been dead,” physician Tina Slusher tells WFAA’s sister station KARE at Hennepin County Medical Center, where Dayib is in critical but stable condition.
Machines are breathing for him, both of his arms are broken, his lungs are bruised and his back is fractured. But Slusher says two things worked in his favor.
” Little (kids) are more flexible and don’t break as easily as we do and he also fell in a very small patch of mulch,” she said.
Doctors say it is to early to tell if the child will have long-term complications. For now, he is heavily sedated. Coupled with his broken arms, bruised lungs and other fractures he suffered a concussion. Initially doctors thought his skull was fractured but that was ruled out late Tuesday afternoon.”
