And let's not forget that Clinton made up a huge story leading to the deaths of 100,000 people in a war, and sold his country to Halliburton with lots of dumb people cheering him on.
Smoking pot would be much, much, much worse than taking the good will of the entire planet after 9/11 and squandering it to enrich Halliburton.
But let's face it, there are still people dumb enough to confuse the "War for Halliburton" with a made up "War on Terror." I can only imagine if Clinton had made a dramatic "Dead or Alive" speech on 9/11/01 about Osama bin Laden and then blew the whole thing off to pursue something on deliberately fabricated evidence to enable him to steal oil for his friends at Exxon.
And of course having sex with a girl is an impeachable offense. Discarding a constitution written by James Madison, Benjamin Franklin under the supervision of George Washington is small potatoes and should be ignored.
Balancing the budget is a meaningless impeachable offense, while running up a deficit greater than all of the Presidents who proceeded you is not.
One thing we can be sure of, is that the American people, who have squandered a bold and exciting history through laziness and poor thinking deserve what they are going to get.
Franklin would be surprised it lasted as long as it did, but make no mistake, Democracy requires an informed, vigilant population, not the population that parrots Fox News with wholly selective attention.
The very same people who screamed for small government less than six years ago, cares not a whit if the government crawls in their beds, reads their mail, monitors every financial transaction, listens in on every phone conversation and checks up on their flag waving.
I'm sure Thomas Jefferson would approve.
Speaking about Osama bin Laden, (remember him?) whatever happened to those Anthrax attacks? They were big news once.
Speaking of forgotten causes, didn't Boy George make a big speech in New Orleans about how he was going to throw money at that situation. How is it that Halliburton didn't even give those people hammers? How come they're still living in FEMA trailers, one year later.
Oh yeah, I forgot, a lie about a girl is really, really, really, really unforgivable, but a lie to states full of storm ravaged people is just short attention span theater.
If any Democratic President had done one zillionth of what little boy George had done, the Fox News crowd would be up in arms, hauling out their guns, making big time threats. On the other hand, this is a crowd of draft evaders, chickenhawks and cowards.
I'm am sorry to lose a country I love a great deal, and I am very sad to lose it to stupidity, to internal rather than external enemies. But I cannot change history.
If I win the lottery, I'll get my children to a safe place. If I don't win the lottery, I'll try my damnedest to do the same. One thing I will not be able to do, is to give them the country I was born with. I feel horrible about the matter.
It is good to know though that you and your children will go fight for Halliburton in Baghdad. I can't say I'll miss you, but hey, you really seem to be very involved in patriotism, the dumb kind.
About the only thing I can say is that I am greatly relieved that many of the great minds who founded this country are long dead and don't have to compleplate the level to which their beautiful Republic sank. I think it would bring them great grief to know that they sacrificed so much for so many who deserved so little.
