Throw that woman in prison… NOBODY deletes 30,000 emails. [Guest Voice]
by Steve Krome
For the last several years we’ve been bombarded with stories and speculation about Hillary Clinton’s email scandal and of her DELETING 30,000 emails. What was she doing…? What was that woman thinking?
If you’re like me you probably thought 30,000 emails? Nobody gets 30,000 emails!
With that number in mind I took a look at myself and my email habits just to make sure.
Now admittedly I’m not the Secretary of State with thousands of employees and people worldwide vying for my attention but HEY… Even though I’m a little guy with only one email address that’s close enough to get a good idea of what this treacherous woman was trying to pull over on us.
With this as my motivation I was surprised to see that I’d deleted 28 emails today and didn’t feel a thing.
Today (10/25/2016) I received 32 emails
1 – Pizza Joint
2 – Rolling Stone
2 – Audible.com
4 – Computer Joint
1 – Dictionary.com
3 – High School Reunion website
4 – Newspaper Joint
2 – Fun and Games Joint
5 – eBay
7 – Friends / Relatives
After reading and responding to or ignoring them… I deleted 28.
OK now let’s do the math… Assuming I receive 28 emails a day I delete:
196 emails a week (28 x 7)
882 emails a month (196 x 4.5)
OR 10,584 emails a year.
At that rate in 4 years (Hillary Clinton’s tenure as SOS) I delete… 42,336 emails.
And at that rate trying to make a scandal out of 30,000 or 40,000 or 60,000 deleted emails looks a little silly.
