Would Clinton have to pay tax of that extra income ? :wacko:

I think its very rude of CLinton to turn down such a grand offer without even looking at it. If hed still been president then he could have expected maybe 100 sheep and 40 cows, but I think he will have to settle for less now

Chelsea Clinton is currently employed by the British government (she works for McKinsey, the management consultants :x ) to monitor our health care reforms.

 

I bet she's getting paid more 40 goats and 20 cows-worth. :-

 

If I paid tax, I would be quite annoyed. :lol:

She did go to an Ivy League University, so I'm sure she is not totally useless...

George W. Bush went to an Ivy League University.

 

 

Ivy league universities exist only to protect the minority of the oppulent from the bright upstarts of the unenlightened masses, and to ensure that the higher echelons of scoiety remain closed to those who might change the order of things.

I don't think Chelsea should get the job just because she's the President's daughter. On the other hand, being the President's daughter is certainly something that makes her valuable to a company or institution. She might be able to buy the gentleman in question several times over for all we know.

I'm sure that even the rich people that went to Ivy League schools still needed some sort of Academic performance.

 

The schools still have a reputation to uphold and if any of that sort of stuff got out it would be too damaging IMO.

On a local radio show they were talking about this, and the female host determined the reason she wasn't married was that no one offered her a dowry yet so I called in right away.

 

I offered her a beautiful diamond and tanzanite ring. I mentioned that I had already given it to my wife, but I could ask for it back.

I would have called in to the radio show and pointed out what a dowry actually is. ;)"

It is usually a gift from the parents, or to the parents.

From the bride's parent's to the husband or his parents. As was mentioned before, offering something for the woman's hand in marriage is a bride price, not a dowry.

 

So if Chelsea Clinton hasn't been offered a dowry, it's because her father's a stingy ex-president.

According to a colleague whose girlfriend lived across from Chelsea in Oxford (who names their kids after places anyway?) she 'mings' just as badly in real life. Plus you have to bear in mind that girls always end up like their mothers and would YOU want to marry Hilary Clinton?

 

Bride prices are common in a whole bunch of places. Some cenral asians consider a good bride price essential in the same way that we westerners insist on a flash white wedding. It is superior inasmuch as it proves the guy is either independently wealthy or at least still friends with enough of his family that they care to help him get hitched. It is also considered very poor taste if one treats it as a way to earn cash using your daughters.

 

Personally I'd rather have the simplicity of turning up with a mess of livestock, than have to endure potential father-in-laws endless rambling horse-poop on tedious subjects.
