This is one helluva three-faceted scandal. It is a Bill and Hillary Clinton scandal; It’s an Obama Administration/Obama Department of Justice Scandal; It’s a Robert Mueller and Rod Rosenstein scandal. It’s a Democrat scandal throughout.

The Pursuit of Happiness — Winning The Lottery?

There is no evidence to show that money buys happiness. Instead, research shows that happy people tend to: express gratitude on a regular basis; practice being optimistic; engage in frequent acts of kindness; savor joyful events, and practice forgiveness.
