Remember when Bill was President ?

If you’re over 35, you lived through it, so read it and recollect. Amazing to me how much I had forgotten! For those under 35, read this, verify and don’t forget.

     ________________________________________________

When Bill Clinton was president, he allowed Hillary to assume authority over an attempt to health care reform. Even after threats and intimidation, she couldn’t get a vote in a Democrat controlled US Congress. This fiasco cost the American taxpayers about $13 million for studies, promotion, and other efforts.

Then, President Clinton gave Hillary authority over selecting a female attorney general. Her first two selections were Zoe Baird and Kimba Wood – both were forced to withdraw their names from consideration.

Next, she chose Janet Reno – husband Bill described her selection as “my worst mistake.”

Some may not remember that Reno made the decision to gas David Koresh and the Branch Davidian religious sect in Waco, Texas resulting in dozens of deaths of women and children.

Husband Bill allowed Hillary to make recommendations for the head of the Civil Rights Commission. Lani Guanier was her selection.  When a little probing led to the discovery of Ms. Guanier’s radical views, her name had to be withdrawn from consideration.

Apparently a slow learner, husband Bill allowed Hillary to make some more recommendations. She chose former law partners Web Hubbel for the Justice Department, Vince Foster for the White House staff, and William Kennedy for the Treasury Department.

Her selections went well: Hubbel went to prison, Foster (presumably) committed suicide, and Kennedy was forced to resign.

Many younger voters will have no knowledge of “Travelgate.” Hillary wanted to award unfettered travel contracts to Clinton friend Harry Thompson – and the White House Travel Office refused to comply. She managed to have them reported to the FBI and fired. This ruined their reputations, cost them their jobs, and caused a thirty-six month investigation. Only one employee, Billy Dale was charged with a crime, and that of the enormous crime of mixing personal and White House funds. A jury acquitted him of any crime in less than two hours.

Still not convinced of her ineptness, Hillary was allowed to recommend a close Clinton friend, Craig Livingstone, for the position of Director of White House security.  When Livingstone was investigated for the improper access of about 900 FBI files of Clinton enemies (Filegate) and the widespread use of drugs by White House staff, suddenly Hillary and the president denied even knowing Livingstone, and of course, denied knowledge of drug use in the White House.

Following this debacle, the FBI closed its White House Liaison Office after more than thirty years of service to seven presidents.

Next, when women started coming forward with allegations of sexual harassment and rape by Bill Clinton, Hillary was put in charge of the “bimbo eruption” and scandal defense. Some of her more notable decisions in the debacle were:

She urged her husband not to settle the Paula Jones lawsuit.  After the Starr investigation they settled with Ms. Jones.

She refused to release the Whitewater documents, which led to the appointment of Ken Starr as Special Prosecutor.

After $80 million dollars of taxpayer money was spent, Starr’s investigation led to Monica Lewinsky, which led to Bill lying about and later admitting his affairs.   Hillary’s devious game plan resulted in Bill losing his license to practice law for ‘lying under oath’ to a grand jury and then his subsequent impeachment by the House of Representatives.

Hillary avoided indictment for perjury and obstruction of justice during the Starr investigation by repeating, “I do not recall,” “I have no recollection,” and “I don’t know” a total of 56 times while under oath.

After leaving the White House, Hillary was forced to return an estimated $200,000 in White House furniture, china, and artwork that she had stolen.

What a swell person – ready for another four or eight years of this low-life fool?

Now we are exposed to the unsecure keeping and attempted destruction of beyond Top Secret emails while Hillary was US Secretary of State and the “pay to play” schemes of the Clinton Foundation. What “shoe will fall” next?

But to her loyal fans:  “What difference does it make?”

Electing Hillary Clinton president would be like granting Satan absolution and giving him the keys to heaven!

Please pass this on. Our way of life depends upon it.

Some facts are just fun to know…..

ampersand

Johnson & Johnson, Barnes & Noble, Dolce & Gabbana: the ampersand today is used primarily in business names, but that small character was once the 27th part of the alphabet. Where did it come from though? The origin of its name is almost as bizarre as the name itself.

The shape of the character (&) predates the word ampersand by more than 1,500 years. In the first century, Roman scribes wrote in cursive, so when they wrote the Latin word et which means “and” they linked the e and t. Over time the combined letters came to signify the word “and” in English as well. Certain versions of the ampersand, like that in the font Caslon, clearly reveal the origin of the shape.

The word “ampersand” came many years later when “&” was actually part of the English alphabet. In the early 1800s, school children reciting their ABCs concluded the alphabet with the &. It would have been confusing to say “X, Y, Z, and.” Rather, the students said, “and per se and.” “Per se” means “by itself,” so the students were essentially saying, “X, Y, Z, and by itself and.” Over time, “and per se and” was slurred together into the word we use today: ampersand. When a word comes about from a mistaken pronunciation, it’s called a mondegreen.

(The ampersand is also used in an unusual configuration where it appears as “&c” and means etc. The ampersand does double work as the e and t.

Who, from history, would you love to spend the evening with?

My first choice would be Jesus, but if that ticket was gone, my choice would be Mark Twain. A small portion of his quotations shown below is the reason why. How would you answer the title question?  Just reply in the “Leave a  comment” section at the bottom of the post….I will try to set you up.  -mst-

The secret of getting ahead is getting started.

Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.

Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.

All you need in this life is ignorance and confidence, and then success is sure.

Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.

It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt.

The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time.

Part of the secret of a success in life is to eat what you like and let the food fight it out inside.

Go to Heaven for the climate, Hell for the company.

There are basically two types of people. People who accomplish things, and people who claim to have accomplished things. The first group is less crowded.

Do the right thing. It will gratify some people and astonish the rest.

The best way to cheer yourself up is to try to cheer somebody else up.

Patriotism is supporting your country all the time, and your government when it deserves it.

Wrinkles should merely indicate where smiles have been.

You can’t depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus.

The lack of money is the root of all evil.

If it’s your job to eat a frog, it’s best to do it first thing in the morning. And If it’s your job to eat two frogs, it’s best to eat the biggest one first.

Don’t go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first.

A man’s character may be learned from the adjectives which he habitually uses in conversation.

Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured.

Apparently there is nothing that cannot happen today.

Never put off till tomorrow what you can do the day after tomorrow.

Thunder is good, thunder is impressive; but it is lightning that does the work.

A person who won’t read has no advantage over one who can’t read.

It is curious that physical courage should be so common in the world and moral courage so rare.

Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

 

What is our national recidivism rate?

According to an April 2011 report by the Pew Center on the States, the average national recidivism rate for released prisoners is 43.3%.
(With nearly half of released prisoners choosing to  go back to jail…..this solution sounds really good!)mst
Jails and Nursing Homes 
Here’s the way it should be: 
 Let’s put the seniors in jail and the criminals in nursing homes.  
 This would correct two things in one motion:
Seniors would have access to showers, hobbies and walks.

They would receive unlimited free prescriptions, dental and medical treatment, wheel chairs, etc.
 

They would receive money instead of having to pay it out.
They would have constant video monitoring, so they would be helped instantly if they fell or needed assistance. 

Bedding would be washed twice a week and all clothing would be ironed and returned to them. 

A guard would check on them every 20 minutes.

All meals and snacks would be brought to them.

They would have family visits in a suite built for that purpose.

They would have access to a library, weight/fitness room, spiritual counseling, a pool and education…and free admission to in-house concerts by nationally recognized entertainment artists.
 

Simple clothing – ie., shoes, slippers, pj’s – and legal aid would be free, upon request. 

There would be private, secure rooms provided for all with an outdoor exercise yard complete with gardens. 

Each senior would have a P.C., T.V., phone and radio in their room at no cost. 

They would receive daily phone calls.

There would be a board of directors to hear any complaints and the ACLU would fight for their rights and protection.
 

The guards would have a code of conduct to be strictly adhered to, with attorneys available, at no charge to protect the seniors and their families from abuse or neglect.
As for the criminals:
 They would receive cold food.
They would be left alone and unsupervised.
They would receive showers once a week.
They would live in tiny rooms, for which they would have to pay $5,000 per month.
They would have no hope of ever getting out.
Sounds like justice to me !

Magic Trick

Image result for pics of hillary shock face

Donald and Hillary go into a bakery on the campaign trail. As soon as they enter the bakery,

Hillary steals three pastries and puts them in her pocket.

She says to Donald, “See how clever I am? The owner didn’t see anything and I don’t even need to lie.

I will definitely win the election.”

The Donald says to Hillary, “That’s the typical dishonesty you have displayed throughout your entire life, trickery and deceit. I am going to show you an honest way to get the same result.”

Donald goes to the owner of the bakery and says, “Give me a pastry and I will show you a magic trick.”

Intrigued, the owner accepts and gives him a pastry. Trump swallows it and asks for another one.

The owner gives him another one. Then Donald asks for a third pastry and eats that, too. The owner is starting to wonder where the magic trick is and asks, “What did you do with the pastries?”

Trump replies, “Look in Hillary’s pocket”…
