Bill Clinton : Big News Page

Bill Clinton : Big News Page

I can't believe the latest nasty trick from Slick (Willy)
He's saying: he likes Barack Obama and he likes McCain too
Now America, who to vote for? he leaves that up to you.
Clinton's a traitor and a renegade. He and Joe Lieberman make a great pair

Last night, Nouriel Roubini,consultant and NYU professor of economics told viewers of the Macniel Lehrer News Hour in describing the current economic situation and probable after-shocks that "the light at the end of the tunnel" just might be a "train wreck"

Can it get any worse? Have we hit bottom yet? I'm not just referring to the sub-prime debacle and it's increasingly dire results nor the political campaign that has become a show that would have been closed immediately if it ever opened on Broadway (or Philadelphia!). No, it's much more pervasive- the rot has spread from Washington to Wassalia contaminating our schools, churches and everything else it touches. It seems as if the American people have completely lost touch with reality (maybe it is all those "Reality" shows on TV.

The guys that wrote all those sub-prime mortgages knew that one-in-four would default and their buddies on Wall St. that packaged them for trade knew that at least 25% (probably more) were junk. The "wise guys" on the right end of the RNC knew that Sarah Palin was no more qualified to be VP than Barney (dinosaurs 4000 years ago??) but they set her up anyway because she shifted the voters' attention from the economy and the war in Afghanistan for a couple of weeks but soon the pig's lipstick will be completely forgotten (McCain now wishes it already was) and we'll all be facing the worst defecit in the history of this country and our grandchildren will have to pay.

The Bush doctrine - maybe Palin doesn't know anything about it (Alaska is a long way from Washington) but we're all going to be apying for it dearly for a long time to come.

Judith Warner Hits the Spot

  • Judith Warner told it like it is in the NYT "Opinion" today
  • and here's the last comment to column that was posted.
  • Maybe 302 mostly thoughtful, intelligent comments is some kind of a record for the NYT?

  • 302.
  • In reading the editorial and the comments posted I no longer feel that I “missed something”. I am from a really small town (pop. 255) in rural America. I am a hockey mom and have a mass comm degree. I have small town policital experience but in no way am I swayed by Gov. Palin. She and the Republican party scare me. I want to know how to fix our broken country.I want a really smart person in the top spot. I want Obama/Biden. Thank you for all the “hit the spot” comments. They are what I am thinking!! Vote Obama/Biden on Nov. 4-a smart change!!

It's Not About Palin or Even McCain Vs. Obama

It is about the new " Axial Age" that is upon us. A time when the two opposing sides in the American ideological conflict jockey for position, gird their loins and prepare for WAR!
Maybe you thought that all the radical fundamentalists were in Europe Asia and the Middle East with a few fifth columnists staked out in North and South America? Well, actually almost 20% of the American electorate subscribes to the tenets of radical fundamentalism - here they're known as "Evangelical Christians" and it looks like they've taken control of the Republican National Convention, nominated a real one of their own for the VP spot and are ready to move on Washington with more determination and power than Jerry Falwell et al ever even dreamed of.
They're determined to completely undermine the U.S. constitution, destroy the checks and balance sytem which is the foundation of our democracy and establish that would be the envy of Iran and Franco's Spain.

Is it possible? Can a few religious zealots bring down our country?
The "few" probably constitute about 20% of the electorate , they are strongly united and they are absolutely convinced that "God is on the sure ier side" just like Nazi Germany whose soldiers wore belt buckles inscribed with "Gott Mit Uns" (God with us)

The Bush administration was just a warm-up for the real thing. "You ain't seen nothing yet" but maybe Palin's speech was a teaser.

What can we do if we don't want to submit to a Theocracy led by born-again christians? If we hold our personal liberties dear enough to fight for?
First, unite under one leadership. Second, stand up and fight - don't give an inch and most important make sure that no-one who sides with the radical right- even the apostates like Joe Lieberman gets elected to any office in the land ever again
