THE UNDISPUTED KING OF THE HYPOCRITES
The unchallenged and undisputed reigning king of the hypocrites, the former President Bill Clinton had the temerity to sermonize Americans yesterday. The master of lies and deceit warned of the slippery slope of angry anti-government rhetoric. Mr. "what Is, is" had the gall to pound the podium and point at We the People and say, "the words we use really do matter."
I have been really lax in keeping up with postings for this blog for a variety of reasons, mainly I was growing weary of finding new ways of saying that we are in deep doo-doo and our acting president is a commie/socialist/muslum/liar. I have not been inspired to write anything, sorry! If I were a real writer I could blame it on writers block or some such excuse.
Then this morning, while I was perusing the Drudge Report I saw this picture of the "Slickster" and curiosity got the best of me. I knew that he and James Carville had teamed up to launch a dirty tricks campaign on the Tea Party Movement and was looking for the real reason for his deep concern for truth, justice and the American way. After I read it I was really steamed and knew what I wanted to say. I am much calmer now and will attempt to say it in a more polite and civil manner, after all, "the words we use really do matter."

As usual, the "Slippery One" delivered a masterpiece performance and a sermonette that would have made Elmer Gantry embarrassed. Using the technique that has been labeled "Clintonesque," he managed to dish out praise and make belittling remarks in the same comment. "I'm glad they're fighting over health care and everything else. Let them have at it. But I think that all you have to do is read the paper every day to see how many people there are who are deeply, deeply troubled," he said.
The propaganda master goes on to say; "What we learned from Oklahoma City is not that we should gag each other or that we should reduce our passion for the positions we hold - but that the words we use really do matter, because there's this vast echo chamber, and they go across space and they fall on the serious and the delirious alike. They fall on the connected and the unhinged alike."
I totally get it. I knew when I started to read Clinton's comments that it would anger me. I knew that his remarks would be aimed at casting anyone protesting against the government as "delirious" and "unhinged" and therefore dangerous.
He besmirched the Tea Party Movement when he alluded to the anti-government tea party movement, which held protests in several states Thursday, April 15. At the Washington rally, Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota railed against "gangster government."Make that all 50 states, Mr. Ex-president.
The truck bombing of the Federal Building in Oklahoma City was a horrendous crime and a despicable act by any standards. The actions of a deranged individual, Timothy McVeigh, was in direct response to the Waco massacre where the Clinton Whitehouse ordered the slaughter of 82 men, women and children. The same administration that sanctioned the assignations of women and children at Ruby Ridge. Anyone who cares to study the personal history of William Jefferson Clinton will find a trail of mysterious death that run from Washington D.C. to Mena, AR., from Ruby Ridge to Waco.
I whole heartedly agree, "words really do matter" but so do actions. We the People are angry at our "gangster government" for their total disregard for the Constitution that they are sworn to follow and protect. We are angry at the corruption and greed that has become the warp and woof of the fabric of the Federal Government. We are incensed that elected officials hold We the People is such contempt. We are angry that our elected servants no longer represent the people but serve special interests and our protests fall on deaf ears.
I do find some consolation in reading the smear article about Mr. Bill's comments, it proves to me that the Tea Party Movement is starting to get under their skin. I hope that we continue like a swarm of chiggers to get under their skin until we make their life miserable!
And I don't mean that in no bad way, after all, words do matter.
