Well, now that the Clintons have some spare time they may be able to actually spend some of that money.
I believe the people of Haiti are still waiting for the promised houses.
How many houses has the Clinton Foundation built so far?
I believe the answer is Zero but maybe they've been keeping it a secret.
Ya think??

Don't know nuthin' about them Clintons building any houses as, I'm pretty sure they left the housin' bidness to Goober Carter.

Last I heard was Bill was payin' to learn them East Africans how to get they rice seed from Monsanto and, in drought stricken East Africa, take to plantin' water-intensive rice. Which, when I heard about that from the folks east of me, Riceland Rice, I figured "Sounds about right. Probably next Bill'll take to learnin' the Eskimoes how to dig turnips."

That there Bill, if there's anybody can sell shit, that'd be Bill.

Except for sellin' Hillary looks like. Shit I doubt he could give 'er away. Maybe send 'er to Australia an' let you'uns put 'er on the next ship headin' to see if there's any ice left in Antarctica. And if there is ...

David,

"..., I do urge Hillary and Bill - and Chelsea - to up their security!"
The U. S. Secret Service provides lifetime security for former Presidents and their spouses. That is about as good as protection gets. So HillBilly's protection is solid, albeit Chelsea's protection lapsed after her 16th birthday.

This brings up an interesting point, however. What if HillBilly get a divorce? Bill retains his Secret Service protection for sure, but I am not sure if Hill does. Perhaps JK can enlighten us?

Could TBH, but I suspect would not if only owing to her not having to do her own shopping at Walmart since 1992 so socially speaking Hillary's a retard.

But the decision to drop coverage after divorce would be her's which as initiated above "she could" but I doubt she would.

President Obama extended the protection.

Washington (CNN) – With the stroke of a pen Thursday January 10th, 2013, President Barack Obama gave himself and his wife Secret Service protection for the rest of their lives.

The new law, which passed the House and Senate in December, designates that all former U.S. presidents who served after January 1, 1997, along with their spouses, receive protection from the Secret Service for their entire lifetimes – meaning former President George W. Bush and his wife Laura are also covered. The law also stipulates that children of presidents receive protection until the age of 16.

Lifetime government-provided security for former presidents was the law of the land until 1997, when Congress passed legislation limiting Secret Service protection to ten (10) years after leaving office.
The 1997 law said any president serving before January 1, 1997 would still receive the lifelong protection. That means with the law signed Thursday; every former president – Jimmy Carter, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush – along with Obama will continue to receive Secret Service details for the rest of their lives.


Pheeeew, that's a relief, I've been really worried about Jimmy Carter!

And speaking of pensions. Lengthy read, but interesting.

Crikey, in real terms they are declining! How will poor old Barack manage all those flights to various golf courses?

"Who is the Secret Service authorized to protect?
By law, the Secret Service is authorized to protect:

The president, the vice president, (or other individuals next in order of succession to the Office of the President), the president-elect and vice president-elect
The immediate families of the above individuals
Former presidents, their spouses, except when the spouse re-marries."

*The subject of divorce has not [yet] been addressed. (JK)
