Former President Bill Clinton told a group of pharmacists in Las Vegas on Dec. 3 that white Americans who lack high school diplomas, and who have seen their life expectancy diminish in recent years, are “dying of a broken heart.” …

Clinton was discussing a New York Times article on a study about the life expectancy of whites in the United States, which noted that life expectancy had risen steadily for all groups except non-Hispanic whites without a high school degree. …

For those who may have forgotten what kind of a President Bill Clinton was:

1) Clinton’s own words show his often expressed innate hostility to, and utter contempt for, the core principles of the American founding:

``If the personal freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution inhibit the government’s ability to govern the people, we should look to limit those guarantees.’’ -- President Bill Clinton, August 12, 1993

``The purpose of government is to reign in the rights of the people’’ –- Bill Clinton during an interview on MTV in 1993

``We can’t be so fixated on our desire to preserve the rights of ordinary Americans…that we forget about reality.’’ -- President Bill Clinton, quoted in USA Today, March 11, 1993, Page 2A, ``NRA change: `Omnipotent to powerful’’’ by Debbie Howlett

“When we got organized as a country and we wrote a fairly radical Constitution with a radical Bill of Rights, giving a radical amount of individual freedom to Americans, it was assumed that the Americans who had that freedom would use it responsibly… that they would work for the common good, as well as for the individual welfare… However, now there’s a lot of irresponsibility. And so a lot of people say there’s too much freedom. When personal freedom’s being abused, you have to move to limit it.” – Bill Clinton, April 19, 1995

2) Clinton inevitably pursued his own political advantage at the expense of American interests and national security. Here is just one of many possible examples:

It is well documented that Clinton and the Democrats took illegal campaign money from groups and individuals tied directly to the Chinese People’s Republican Army. It is therefore not surprising that In January 1998 Clinton went against the advice of then-Secretary of State Warren Christopher and Pentagon experts by lifting long-standing restrictions against the export of American satellites to China for launch on Chinese rockets. Not only did he move control over such decisions from the more security-focused State Department to the Commerce Department, but he intervened in a Justice Department investigation of Loral Space & Communications, retroactively enabling Loral to sell critical missile technology to the Chinese. Interestingly enough, Clinton’s decision was made at the request of Loral CEO Bernard Schwartz, whose earlier $1.3 million campaign donation made him the single biggest contributor to the Democratic election effort.

The result, as stated eloquently by syndicated columnist Linda Bowles, was that “the Democrats got money from satellite companies and from Chinese communists; China got supercomputors, advanced production equipment and missile technology; Loral got its satellites launched at bargain basement prices . . . and the transfer of sensitive missile technology gave China [for the first time] the capability of depositing bombs on American cities.” Incidentally, Loral ultimately failed to benefit from this permanent injury to America’s security interests: in July 2003, the company filed for bankruptcy protection, and in order to raise cash was forced to sell its most profitable business – a fleet of communications satellites orbiting over North America.

3) On two occasions, Clinton used military action for the specific purpose of distracting the American public from the fallout of the Lewinsky affair:

• On August 20, three days after Clinton finally admitted publicly to the Lewinsky affair, the news media was poised to focus on that day’s grand jury testimony by Monica Lewinsky. That same morning, Clinton personally went on national television to gravely announce his bombing of a Sudanese “chemical weapons factory,” and a terrorist training camp in Afghanistan. It was the first time most Americans ever heard the name of Osama bin Laden. The factory bombing in Sudan killed an innocent night watchman, but accomplished little else. It later was proven that the plant was making badly needed pharmaceuticals for people in that poverty-stricken part of the world, but no chemical weapons.

Several months later, the U.S. Center for Nonproliferation Studies, part of the Monterey Institute of International Studies, stated: "...the evidence indicates that the facility had no role whatsoever in chemical weapons development." Kroll Associates, one of the world's most reputable investigative firms, also confirmed that there was no link in any way between the plant and any terrorist organization. As for the Afghanistan bombing, it failed to do any damage at all to bin Laden or his organization. Clinton’s action was accurately characterized by George W. Bush when he said right after 9-11: "When I take action, I’m not going to fire a $2 million missile at a $10 empty tent and hit a camel in the butt.

Clinton’s pointless and murderous military actions did not make Americans safer that day, although they did destroy an innocent life, and for all the good they did certainly could have been delayed in any case. But they did succeed in diverting media attention from Lewinsky’s grand jury testimony for a 24-hour news cycle, which was the main point. So I guess, they weren’t a total loss.

•On December 16, 1998, on the eve of the scheduled House vote on his impeachment, Bill Clinton launched a surprise bombing attack on Baghdad. As justification for this exploit, he cited the urgent threat that Saddam’s weapons of mass destruction posed to America, and the need for immediate action. Almost immediately, the House Democrats held a caucus and emerged calling for a delay in the impeachment proceedings. House minority leader Dick Gephardt made a statement: "We obviously should pass a resolution by saying that we stand behind the troops. I would hope that we do not take up impeachment until the hostilities have completely ended."

Conveniently, a delay so near the end of the House term would have caused the vote to be taken up in the next session – when the newly elected House membership would be seated with more Democratic representation, thereby improving Clinton’s chances of dodging impeachment.

The Republicans did, in fact, agree to delay the hearings, but only for a day or two. Amazingly, Clinton ended the bombing raid after only 70 hours -- once it became clear that in spite of the brief delay, the vote would still be held in the current session.

Once the bombing stopped, Clinton touted the effectiveness and importance of the mission. As reported by ABC News : “We have inflicted significant damage on Saddam's weapons of mass destruction programs, on the command structures that direct and protect that capability, and on his military and security infrastructure,” he said. Defense secretary William Cohen echoed the point: “We estimate that Saddam's missile program has been set back by at least a year.”

Whether or not one buys Clinton’s assessment of that mission, it is difficult to believe that its timing was so critical that it required commencement virtually at the moment the House was scheduled to vote on the impeachment. I think the most reasonable conclusion is that Clinton cynically deployed US military assets and placed military personnel in harm’s way for purely political reasons.

4) Clinton’s reckless sexual behavior was a threat to American national security:

Clinton and his supporters have been very effective in persuading large numbers of Americans that the Lewinsky scandal was “only about sex.” But I see a bigger issue here, because Clinton is on record as saying that he would have done anything to keep knowledge of the Lewinsky affair from becoming public.

To me, that statement raises a very serious question: What if, instead of sending her recorded Lewinsky conversations to Ken Starr, Linda Tripp had instead secretly offered them for sale, say, to the Chinese government? Or to the Russians? Or even to agents of Saddam?

What kind of blackmail leverage would those tapes have provided to a foreign government in dealing with America on sensitive trade, security or military issues? One of the few things Clinton ever said that I believe is that he would have done anything to keep the Lewinsky affair secret. Given his demonstrated track record of selling out American interests for personal or political gain (and there are more examples that I could have cited here), how far would he have gone in compromising America’s real interests in order to protect his own neck when threatened with blackmail?

Pretty far, I believe. Equally distressing is the prospect Clinton might, in fact, have succumbed to foreign black mail on other occasions in order to hide different sexual episodes that ultimately did not become public. There is no way to know, of course, but I prefer presidents for whom such a scenario is not a plausible possibility.

And don’t even get me started on the war crime in Kosovo.

So? They had a chance to finish Government paid school but thought they had the world by the tail, dropped out and found the world had them by the yingyang.

Now it’s the fault of everyone else!

***are “dying of a broken heart.”***

Help! I’m dying because I was stoopid!

Self loathing Leftist Honky horn-dog gonna tell me what?!?!

Ten thousand years from now in the textbooks of ancient history, Washington, Jefferson and Lincoln will be tiny insignificant entries in the records of North America but the story of Bill Clinton getting blow jobs in the Oval Office will have their own graphic chapters...

...If Willard dies before he feels authentic shame for how he slapped feces on the sacred office of the Presidency we will all know what his punishment in perdition will be—the same Father Karras’s mother suffers according to the demons possessing young Regan in “The Exorcist.”

The option still remains but requires some determination. Get a GED (a vaild high school equivalency) and go from there. Local two year college to hone skills or a local tech school, on to a four year school if they work hard.

Obviously you aren't up on the latest. Bubba is now a vegan. Obviously somebody wanted him around to torture us for many more years into the future.

Either that or the veg diet makes Viagra more effective.

I guess GED has some value, but I have never been asked to show GED or HS diploma as far as that goes. Value in business is what you know and what you can really do that most others can not.

I’ll put my life up against many with Sheepskins any time. Willingness to work hard and use good sense more than compensates.

After all the damage the Clinton administration caused, How do we know he wasn’t blackmail after all?

The Chinese made out pretty well because of Clinton and so did the Iraqis. Bin Laden also survived to destroy the WTC too.

Clinton was discussing a New York Times article on a study about the life expectancy of whites in the United States, which noted that life expectancy had risen steadily for all groups except non-Hispanic whites without a high school degree.

So there is a "crisis" in health care after all. Is that why we need Obamacare? /(sarc.)

I don't think there are too many 'Rat politicians out there who can resist the temptation to tell us that the coming of ObamaCare will increase life expectancy, when in fact it will do just the opposite - and not only for "non-Hispanic whites without a high school degree."

Klingon is right about too much freedom and not used for the common good.

It’s too much freedom for the left and the communist media to shred the Constitution for THEIR COMMON GOOD AND NOT FOR THE REPUBLIC.

The radical founding fathers knew exactly what they were doing and the communists are extremely lucky not to face their guns, so far.

White Americans are no longer relevant in this society, besides being wallets for various special interest groups to pull $$$ out of.

Clinton’s talking here about a group of people who clearly aren’t doing their fair share in generating wealth so it can be consumed by others. Why should he care if they are “dying of broken hearts? At least they’re dying. Soylent Green anyone?

It's not only whites who have problems.

Imagine the future in the urban zones, when the EBT cards stop working.

“Clinton’s reckless sexual behavior was a threat to American national security”

Just like Kennedy's...all of the Kennedy's!

In Barry's case it is his not only his reckless same-sex sexual behavior, but his likely Kenyan birth and other biographical lies that expose him to blackmail.

Yes, it’s going to be an interesting time in those urban areas when that happens. I never go into cities, for that and other reasons.

This is what our young college grads have to look forward too, along with a lot of old geezers in their 50's and up. I am seeing more and more people on the side of the road, "HOMELESS, HUNGRY, WILL WORK FOR FOOD" and they are out their in the rain and cold, the hustlers are usually not out in that kind of weather.
