Carter And Clinton, Profiles In Incompetence

with one comment

Opinions should be based on facts, but facts should never be based on opinions. Judging by the adoration heaped on two Ex-Presidents, Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton, that concept is lost on many in our nation.

Carter is remembered as a peace maker and Clinton for the feel good economy of the 90’s but what really was happening during their tenures?

Here’s what was happening, warring factions around the world were evolving, growing and being emboldened by the inepitude, lack of foresight, and inaction of both the former and the latter which ultimately resulted in the horror of 9/11 and our involvement in a fight on terrorism that will last for generations.

Can we trust our national security and the future of our children to the touchy feely idealogies of the donkey party? History shows that we cannot.

As the Dow continues it’s healthy averages, one has to wonder why Johnny Lunch Pail and Susie the Steno aren’t feeling any wealthier. Sure, we’ve been taking a beating at the gas pumps lately but could there be a more prominent mover and shaker than the Dow?

NAFTA, the Federalist brain child of the 90’s, isn’t panning out to be the economic boom it was promised to be. Production has increased and yet workers are seeing less of the benefits of it in any of the three countries involved except for those at the high income levels.

Ask yourself this: If NAFTA isn’t working for us, we do we need the North American Union which is merely NAFTA on steroids?

Hey Bubba, Your Nose Is Growing

leave a comment »

Bill and Hilary Clinton are truly becoming the Bonnie and Clyde of politics. One lies. and the other swears to it.

In his now infamous tirade on the Chris Wallace show, Bubba insisted that he never received any report that Osama Bin Ladin ( OBL) planned to attack inside the US borders. Yesterday, Senator Hilary Clinton said that she was certain that if her hubby had been shown a document indicating such an attack, he would have acted upon it.

Bill Clinton was indeed apprised of OBL’s intentions through a classified document that he signed in December of 1998.

What a perpetual pile of pasture pudding we keep getting from the Deceptive Duo. They put so much spin on history that one tends to make a dash for some Dramamine after hearing them speak.

Hilary either knows the truth and chooses to misrepresent it, or doesn’t know the truth and blindly follows Bill’s lead like a sheep. In either case, she proves again that she is hardly of Presidential caliber and we all ready know that Slick Willy never was.

Hey! Pass That Gas Over Here!

with 2 comments

Gas is $1.80 a gallon in Missouri. Hmmmm seems like it will be down to $1.50 by the end of the year. Poor liberals… can anything else go wrong? Damn that Bush and their rotten conspiracy to force people to pay less for their gallon of gasoline! Have you ever heard of anything so evil?

Some Americans are suspicious that recent steep declines in gasoline prices might be the result of political manipulation, since the savings at the gas pump come just weeks before critical midterm US elections.

Earlier this year, news of record oil profits led many US consumers to believe that energy companies had deliberately kept prices artificially high to improve their bottom line.

Now gas prices have fallen for several consecutive weeks, and recent polls show that consumers have a new suspicion — that the price break is meant to give a boost to a US president and Republican Congress who had fallen out of favor with voters.

Pope Excommunicates Archbishop Milingo Again

leave a comment »

Pope Benedict XVI finally exhausted all patience this week when he excommunicated Archbishop Emmanuel Milingo for his blatant disregard for Roman Catholic doctrine. With a history of voodooistic rituals, exorcisms, healing masses, and the creation of an organization called “Married Priests Now” which installed married priests as bishops, the also married Archbishop will just not go away quietly.

On Tuesday, the Vatican announced the excommunication, the first of a senior prelate in nearly 20 years, and asked for prayer in “these moments of ecclesiastical suffering.”By advocating an end to mandatory celibacy for priests and with his long history of defiance, Milingo was “spreading division and confusion among the faithful,” the Vatican said, adding that the bishop was guilty of “irregularity and of progressively open rupture of communion with the church.”

Technically, Milingo, 76, who was named a bishop in Zambia in 1969, can restore himself to good standing with the church if he repents and disavows his actions, but he lately has seemed bent on mounting a challenge to papal authority. “Representatives at various levels of the church have attempted, in vain, to contact Archbishop Milingo to dissuade him from continuing in actions that provoke scandal,” the Vatican statement said.

The Holy See “had hoped he would rethink his actions and return to full communion with the pope. Unfortunately, these latest developments have distanced such hopes.”Milingo, in Washington, was “reflecting and praying,” a spokesman, Prince Tambi, said by telephone. Tambi added that Milingo said his intention was to help “married priests who are suffering and help the Catholic Church understand them.”
