San Francisco rolls out red carpet for the Clintons
Associated Press | June 28, 2004 | Beth Fouhy

Posted on 06/28/2004 9:38:08 PM PDT by HAL9000

SAN FRANCISCO — The heavily Democratic San Francisco Bay area welcomed two of its political darlings Monday, with former President Clinton continuing his blockbuster book tour and Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton headlining a campaign fund-raiser.

Joining other Democratic women senators at an event for Sen. Barbara Boxer, who's seeking re-election, Hillary Clinton told hundreds of party faithful to expect to lose some of the tax cuts passed under President Bush if Democrats take control in Washington next year.

"Many of you are well enough off that ... the tax cuts may have helped you," Sen. Clinton said. "We're saying that for America to get back on track, we're probably going to cut that short and not give it to you. We're going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good."

Blocks away at San Francisco's historic Ferry Building, President Clinton promoted his best-selling "My Life," signing books for at least 3,000 people.

The Clintons followed largely separate schedules throughout the day, with Sen. Clinton heading south to Monterey for a public policy forum and her husband headlining a fund-raiser Monday evening for the American Himalayan Foundation.

On Tuesday, the former president and Arkansas governor will continue his book tour at several stops around the Bay Area and will be the star attraction at a fund-raiser for House Democrats.

A red carpet is much less punishing on the knees than bare concrete.

PS: I'd be very interested in her charitable contributions for the past ten years. She may have even exceeded Gore's donation of used underwear (1999). Although anyone coming within several feet of used crusties will likely succomb within seconds -- but will be recorded as death by natural causes.

Quote:

The Results of Legal Plunder

It is impossible to introduce into society a greater change and a greater evil than this: the conversion of the law into an instrument of plunder.

What are the consequences of such a perversion? It would require volumes to describe them all. Thus we must content ourselves with pointing out the most striking.

In the first place, it erases from everyone's conscience the distinction between justice and injustice.

No society can exist unless the laws are respected to a certain degree. The safest way to make laws respected is to make them respectable. When law and morality contradict each other, the citizen has the cruel alternative of either losing his moral sense or losing his respect for the law. These two evils are of equal consequence, and it would be difficult for a person to choose between them.

The nature of law is to maintain justice. This is so much the case that, in the minds of the people, law and justice are one and the same thing. There is in all of us a strong disposition to believe that anything lawful is also legitimate. This belief is so widespread that many persons have erroneously held that things are "just" because law makes them so. Thus, in order to make plunder appear just and sacred to many consciences, it is only necessary for the law to decree and sanction it. Slavery, restrictions, and monopoly find defenders not only among those who profit from them but also among those who suffer from them.

Frederic Bastiat (1801-1850)

That's right of of Karl Marx's mouth, "From those who have to those who need"

That skanky Marxist b***h is a DANGER to the Republic and the capitalist system we're based on and an enemy to democracy world-wide.

An aside; I wondered how long it would take her to start spouting her marxist commie crap. I knew she couldn't keep it in forever.

Answer; Because they are Communists. They don't even try to hide it anymore.

Their 'new' tag, Progressive (in lieu of liberal), is right out of the playbook of Communist Party USA of the 1930's.

This statement should be an immediate career ender. We can't afford to have a U.S. Senator holding to socialist/communist views, much less openly verbalizing them.

She has the right to speak her views, just as we have the right to throw her the heck out of the Senate for this garbage.

Unbelievable. This woman is the most arrogant creature I have ever seen. She rivals the heads of the old Soviet regimes of old.

Somehow, I can just imagine her suggesting "reeducation camps" for the population that cannot be forced to go along with her. If she did not have the support of so many fools, she would actually be a cartoon.

She undoubtedly needs to spend a year or more in a federal prison to give her an attitudinal adjustment.
