'Dude that was 5 millions dollars ago'!

(My new American Thinker post)

You can not make this up.  Of course, will anyone in the media have the guts to ask the question?

We learned today that The Clinton Foundation gets "donations" from a certain man:
"As Hollywood hotshots protest the iconic Beverly Hills Hotel over its ownership by Brunei's sultan -- and his recent full-fledged embrace of Islamic law -- it turns out the Brunei government has financial connections to another American institution: The Clinton Foundation.   
The nonprofit foundation lists Brunei alongside Kuwait, Oman and Qatar as donors that gave between $1 million and $5 million through last year. The foundation confirmed the donation from Brunei was made in 2002, in connection with the construction of the Clinton Presidential Library in Arkansas.   
"The Clinton Foundation's impact would not be possible without the generous support of our donors," the foundation's website reads. "Their contributions have made a difference in the lives of tens of millions across the world.""
Again, will anyone in the media ask the question?  Or will feminists call on the Clintons to return the sum?  

There is another question: Do we want a former president married to a presidential candidate traveling all over the world collecting money for a foundation?  When does a conflict of interest become a conflict of interest? 

Or will they say: "Dude that was 5 millions dollars ago"!

Some good numbers from the Texas economy again

(My new American Thinker post)

The latest jobs report from Texas is rather good:
"Texas’ seasonally adjusted unemployment rate fell to 5.2 percent from 5.5 percent in March, according to the Texas Workforce Commission. That was far less than last month’s U.S. jobless rate of 6.3 percent.   
For the last 12 months, Texas added 348,000 jobs, with gains in all 11 major industry groups gaining.
The energy industry has seen the fastest growth in that time, with employment up 7.5 percent."
The information is even better when you look at regions:  
"For April, the Dallas area’s unemployment rate was 4.8 percent and the Fort Worth area’s rate was 4.6 percent.
The Midland area had the state’s lowest jobless rate of 2.3 percent.
The McAllen-Edinburg-Mission area had the highest rate of 8.6 percent."
The city by city numbers are fascinating: Growth in Dallas, a boom in Midland and things are slow in South Texas.

I don't pretend that Texas has all of the answers but we must be doing something right.  Isn't a shame that Governor Perry was not able to make that case in 2012?  It would have been interesting.
