I have been reading your book since we got home. Great book - I am SO happy I won it! The cover artwork is absolutely priceless, too! Sorry I wasn't really aware of it until Saturday. Apparently I've been on the wrong threads or something. Very nice to meet you and thank you for autographing my book, also! :-)

"What angers me the most is the ignorants who dont care about anything but vote democratic on election day for no other reason than they do."

The GOP must take our share of the blame for that, as we have been all too willing to fight on the RATS' turf and not point out how ridiculously incompetent the Federal Leviathan is is dealing with local problems. Especially in the Northeast, we act too much like "me-too" RATS so the RATminions keep voting for what they've always voted for.

"The approach I take with my ignorant friends is to try and educate them via the high burder of taxes we pay and ask them where the money is going."

Excellent strategy, IMHO...I continue to read how NooYawkers pay out in Fed taxes a buck and a quarter--and more--fer every buck they get in Federal largesse in return!! HELLO!!! NooYawk oughtta be at the forefront of the battle fer Federal tax cuts and then tax away to their heart's content at the State and Local level to get whatever programs they keep trying to inflict upon the rest of the Country!! If yer Lib'ral friends cannot understand that logic, well, they are Willfully Ignorant!!

Y'know, I really wish we could come down for the 18th, but we have a previous commitment. We will be at CPAC Jan 30-Feb 1, though... too bad the anti-commonsense crowd isn't holding their rally then.

Beautiful photos, Cacique! The lighted flag on the NYSE columns must be seen in person to fully appreciate it, but your photo is wonderful! Glad we stopped by there so you could take the picture. And thanks for that great photo in the Sequoia Bar! Nice place, with beautiful views - especially at night.

I'll ping a few FReepers now who may not have seen your photos.

Wish we could have been there! We really wanted to go. . . Grrr... Network problems with the computers at home and we are getting ready to announce the new balloon on the first! Still don't have the network glitch worked out either. So, not only did we miss the party, the computers aren't working either. We should have come to NYC!

HILLARY'S BIG MOUTH by Dick Morris

December 30, 2002 -- AMERICAN attitudes toward Hillary Clinton are a bit like how parents see their small but unruly child: They like him best when he is asleep. Throughout her career, when Hillary is silent, she gains in popularity - but when she starts talking, she loses support. Her recent decision to become a spokesperson for the Democratic Party in the wake of its fall mishap is misguided and will only lead to an increase in her negative ratings.

Hillary's history tells the story:

As America first met Hillary Clinton, it came to dislike her more and more. Her outspoken refusal to "stay at home and bake cookies" almost cost her husband the presidency. Then her health-care proposals did cost Democrats control of Congress.

With her negative ratings piling up, it became clear that she and Bill were locked in a zero-sum game. The more she was seen as powerful, the weaker voters felt Bill was. It was only by withdrawing from public - or even White House staff view - that she could repair the damage she had done to the president's image and to her own. She wrote a non-controversial book about raising and educating children and watched it become a best seller as she mouthed platitudes in its support.

Ever since, silence has been Hillary's ally. When Monica burst on our consciousness, Hillary made a particular virtue of saying nothing. After an initial faux pas, in which she denounced the "vast right-wing conspiracy" against Bill, she clammed up for the rest of the impeachment process and earned points for her dignity, even evoking comparisons with Jackie Kennedy's class in the aftermath of her husband's death.

During her campaign for Senate, Hillary spoke a lot and said nothing. Avoiding controversy, she stayed carefully within the four walls of Democratic orthodoxy and made a virtue of silence by saying she was "listening" to the concerns of her new fellow New Yorkers.

When scandal hit, as over her husband's pardons and her parting theft from the White House, she hid under a rock until the smoke cleared.

Her Senate career, thus far, has also shown the rewards of saying nothing. Reluctant to challenge Bush, she has won points for being a good girl. Stories stressed how well she fit in with the Senate club.

Anxious to please, she avoided controversy. She couldn't help the occasional slip as when she attacked Bush from the Senate floor for ignoring warnings of 9/11, but, in the main, she kept her mouth shut.

Of Hillary's public life since 1994, it could be said (as Gilbert and Sullivan wrote of the British House of Lords), "She did nothing in particular, but did it very well."

Now the "old" Hillary seems to be re-emerging, slashing and burning against the Republican agenda, dancing on Trent Lott's grave and attacking Bush for leaving American unsafe in the face of terrorism.

She is pursuing the totally misguided and ludicrously flawed Democratic strategy of engaging Bush by trying to get to the right of him on the terrorism issue, attacking him for leaving us exposed to the threat of a new 9/11.

Like the "old" Nixons that periodically reared their head just after we had been introduced to a "new" Nixon, Hillary is baaaack, attacking and berating her adversaries.

But the old axiom still applies: the less she says, the better she does. In her own interest, Hillary Rodham Clinton should sit down and shut up.

Even though I was down from the virus I couldn't miss this gathering. It's always great to see all of you, you're really a classy bunch. Thanks for making me sound like a VIP I hope I can live up to the cudo's. I am proud to be associated with this group because it's too important to get us heard out there. We all have our work cut out for us and the great minds and energy we have, I believe will prevail, we will give it our best shot. Strategic brainstorming was and is always the most important key to a difficult challenge, until we meet again, and I hope that is sooner than later, I love you all!

Hi! All of my worst fears are being realized with this women "Hillary," they are smart calculating, devious, and focused and the general public can't seem to see through her as we do. The press is afraid to confront her on and gives her a free pass when her stories change. When she makes statements she usually cancels out what she said in her previous statement to cover her ass, "A La Mario Cuomo" She does nothing but she does it well. We will have our work cut out for us because the Democrats have knowbody with charisma. Can you believe it?

Let's see...we met at 6 a.m., stopped for coffee, gas, Cracker Barrel to say hi to others in the DC contingent, and took one minor 'scenic route' detour. We had a little trouble finding Moran's but thanks to cell phones and Race Bannon's flagging us down on the curb, we were parked by 12:15 and headed over to the WTC site. Six hours goes fast with good company. Come on down!

Well they did good, as anyone born in October (ahem -- my son the 9th and yours truly the 28th) is given a great start in life. Do you have a photo of him in camouflage gear? That must be hysterical. Happy New Year Nicky!

I want to thank you for hosting such a wonderful party. I met up with favorite FReepers I haven't seen in ages and got to know many more I haven't met before.

Moran's was a great place to hold the party, but I'm still upset about Mayor Bloomberg and his anti-smoking crusade. The poor waitresses, I don't think they've been exposed to unapologetic Clinton-hating conservatives before. I'm sure that was an afternoon they won't forget soon.

The visit to the World Trade Center site was a mix of sadness, anger and reassurance. That so much 'normalcy' and vitality has returned to an area so devastated is a testament to the strength of the American people--and especially the people of New York City.

I wasn't bothered by the tourists. Folks will make of it what they will, but even those who treat it as just another attraction know deep down the horrid murders and destruction that took place there.

I'm sad that I couldn't make it to meet MadIvan and the Tri-State Chapter members; but I know they are having a fantastic time and the after-action report and pictures will be well worth waiting to read.

We had a great time! It was pouring, but still had, i don't know, about 30 members there?
