Reflective of His Presidency - But Cheaper!

Okay, the Clinton Library opened today to the media fanfare you would expect from the leftist MSM.

Jason and I drove past this wonder of modern architecture last year as it was under construction and at the time I didn't notice how much like a mobile home it looked! Yes, modern architecture at it's finest! If I were in Little Rock I would be worried because you know Mobile Homes are nothing but Tornado Magnets! Ace puts it this way:

Okay, It Really Does Look Like a Mobile Home

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

As we looked at the construction there was a billboard that stated the library was intended to represent Clinton's, "bridge to the 21st century," promise. I noticed that it was an exact representation of Clinton's failed Presidency - a bridge to nowhere!

I pointed this out to Jason at the time by saying that just like his Presidency he made lots of promises but never actually made it.

Like his Presidency his library starts out fine, but just kinda ends without ever making it to the other bank. He left us hanging there over the water - never reaching the 21st Century - kinda in a vulnerable position all ready for 9/11, the corporate indictments for the crimes during the 90's, the failed healthcare scam that lead to the vaccine fiasco, etc.

This legacy is what President Bush called, "Kicking the can down the road."

This, along with the glossed over impeachment for perjury, are the Clinton legacy and his library reflect that perfectly. (including the trailer appearance that perfectly reflected the attitude of many that it is a good thing to get a hummer in the Oval Office!)

And they paid 165 million dollars for that! Unfortunately his Presidency cost us more then we can calculate!

Daily Trek 111504 UNSCAM

Okay, I promise today's won't be another sinker.

We thought Saddam scammed the Iraqi people and the world to the tune of 11 billion, but now we learn that we can varify it was actually over 21 billion dollars. Money he used to fund terror and bribe governments that have opposed the US at every turn related to Iraq and world politics and continue to oppose us to this day. Perhaps they believe our facts are starting to catch up with their fears and the funds! (See Novak for more info)

I watched the Senate investigation into the Oil For Food (OFF) UN-SCAM and I am amazed! The UN didn't care who received the vouchers (money) only who "lifted" or received the oil itself. That eliminated any chance they had to catch the fraud that is reported to include bribery of Benan Sevin the UN employee in charge of making sure the OFF program was properly enforced!

Nothing like having the patients running the institution!

The UN is a corrupt organization that has turned into a wing of the Palestinian government. It's main goal is the destruction of Israel and the reduction in the status and influence of the United States.

Amazingly the Democratic Party is still willing to defend and empower the goals of this corrupt organization. The arrogant Senator Carl Levin (D-Michigan) made it clear in his statement and questions that the US was to blame for the actions of the UN and that the sanctions were working and would have taken care of Saddam. This was in direct contradiction to the testimony - yes the sanctions were working BEFORE the OFF scam began. That is why Saddam accepted the program to begin with. It didn't take him long to realize that he could rebuild his military via the funds he received from the program. The military budget exploded from 7 million in 1996 before the OFF scam began to 500 million when he was removed.

Levin attacked Deulfer for making conclusions based on Iraqi data! He made a fool of himself and clearly demonstrated why the Democratic Party has relegated itself to a minority party!

Yesterday, as if to confirm his complete corruption and willingness to whore everything French for cash Jacques Chirac tells the British that they haven't received any rewards yet for their support of America! (BTW, he is strongly pushing the need for Europe to be a Major Power to counter the United States!) Nice guy isn't he!

Thanks Danegerous for this great and accurate picture!

Let me point out again that had the UN and our enemies in Europe not been so completely corrupted the action against Iraq may have been avoided! That is what amazes me about the left, the media, and the Euro-weenies!

Here is another great blame the US story from the AP brought to us by Ace of Spades:
A U.S. Marine shot and killed a wounded and apparently unarmed Iraqi prisoner in a mosque in the former insurgent stronghold of Fallujah, according to dramatic pool television pictures broadcast Monday. A Marine spokesman in Washington said the shooting was under investigation.
Ace makes this point:
It also has to be noted that these guys have played dead before. And that "playing dead" is not surrendering. And that if you're not surrendering, you're a legitimate target.
It should be pointed out that earlier a Marine was killed when a booby trapped body exploded. A poster (iso) at FreeRepublic makes this observation:

Gunmen abducted police Col. Qassim Mohammed, took him to the Buhriz police station and threatened to kill him if police didn't surrender the station. When police refused, the gunmen tied the colonel's hands behind his back and shot him dead. More

nah.. its terrorists stringing up the corpses of civilian contractors on a bridge.

In other news, a mutilated body of a woman was found in Fallujah. The body was disemboweled.

Why the hell is that not making front page news?


More: OH, as if to demonstrate his parties idea of the OFF program Levin referred it to the, "Oil For Peace" program. That is what Saddam believed it was too! If he gave away oil he could pay for peace!

Daily Trek Monday 111504 Linger

Getting back to regular writing has been rougher then I thought. When I was ready after the election I ran out of meds. Well I received those on Saturday and now things are starting to get a bit better, but I have to admit the elections were quite an inspiration for blogging!

Hopefully things medically will improve in the next few days and I will get back to a more regular schedule of writing. In addition I have noticed that when I write I tend to be much more respectful of the readers feelings then I do when I speak. That is interesting, as if I were speaking to a group rather then to one or two people.

For example - the thought occurred to me today to explain what I call "linger farts". But would that be appropriate in front of a group? Sure, to my friends I wouldn't hesitate to describe how linger farts are those that almost burn your bung hole when they come out and seem to hang around for what seems like eternity! They are also the deadly smelling ones! These differences could be the result of a different composition - perhaps a greater methanol content. Are these the ones you can light - I have never tried - that killed Kenny you know!

However in a group of people I doubt I would EVER go to that extreme and I am not sure if I would ever write about that here....................um,.............well,..................ever again that is - see, now I feel like I need to apologize for covering that!

That is that balance in blogging. Some such as Ace and Dane manage it well, blending the rude with the crude with the important news of the day. Some rage and are proud of that - Dave at FWRR I am talking about you! Some are just up front and to the point like Random. Still others are professionals no matter what like the Powerline guys, CQ, Hugh, and Roger!

When I started this blog it was intended as my observations on life - with an emphasis on politics and current events, but blogs are ever evolving media forms. Today's Trek was, in essence, a stinker - pardon the pun, but that observation made me laugh when it popped into my mind. So why not share with you - with any luck it won't LINGER but who knows, the next time your alone and let some gas pass...........and the door rings...........and the air won't clear.............you'll think of me and you'll curse the term Linger Fart!

Have a great day!
