WRITTEN IN STONE: AN ARCHITECT DEFINES THE CLINTONS

WRITTEN IN STONE: AN ARCHITECT DEFINES THE CLINTONS

by Mia T, 12-30-02

If mutability of meaning was necessary for the survival of the clintons--their survival hinged ultimately on the deconstruction of words and laws--it is more than a little ironic, and a manifestation of the special sway and shortsightedness of the pathologic ego, that clinton's monument to himself will necessarily define the clintons with the permanance of great inviolate places of iconic architecture.

While a huckster removes meaning from institutions --the wife picked up where the husband left off--an architect encodes meaning in buildings. James S. Polshek, the architect with the dubious distinction of having been commissioned to build the William J. Clinton Presidential Center in Little Rock, Arkansas, believes that a successful architectural solution must necessarily be rooted in relevance.

Just as Polshek's buildings have physical layers, so too do they have layers of meaning. His Rose Center for Earth and Space, for example, is informed formally and programmatically by the historic architecture of a designated landmark even as it redefines itself, (often too self-consciously, in my view), in Star-Trekian terms. Reduced to its essence, the building is the nascent universe before the Big Bang, the promise of the undifferentiated cell in its mother's womb,

The "bridge to the 21st century" was, perhaps, clinton's most delusional conceit, so it is not surprising that it would become clinton's self-referential metaphor of choice. His library was to be that bridge, if he had anything to say about it...

 

 

The architect is often the master of the inside joke, witness Robert Venturi's postmodern chairs. Venturi exploited--unabashedly and with abandon--the vocabulary of Las Vegas, its stage-set-as-reality and its roadside culture--bright, clashing, ugly and fake. The architect's inside joke is his hedge against the sycophancy that comes with patronage.

The flip side of the encoded meaning of the architect is the terrorist's decoding ot it. To bin Laden, the World Trade Center was Jewish capitalism encoded in urban space. If Polshek's vision of clinton's library is a bridge, the inside joke is that, at best, it is a bridge to nowhere.

More likely, it is a bridge to the 7th century...or a doublewide to house clinton double-speak. Take your choice.

Mia, you rule. We will be living with the deficiencies of the Klinton legacy for years to come. The unseriousness of his policies directly led to 3000 Americans losing their lives in a sneak by islamofascists and just gave North Korea the bomb.

Adolph Hitler has been dead for 57 years, Josef Stalin has been dead for 49 years, so we should GET OVER IT?

The damage clinton has wrought is only now beginning to surface, Re: North Korea, Iraq, China. Until both the clintons are barking in the Seventh Circle, they should be in baggy Orange...

Wake up! Heir Clinton will be our Dicatoress unless the "masses" awaken to her truly evil vileness. She is a mass murderer. She has employed weapons of mass destruction in order to achieve her goals. SHE has authorized the murder of her lover and her "husband's" childhood friend. SHE authorized the killing of children - several times - during her previous reign of terror. It is much much worse than MiaT brings forth - but thanks be to God her talents are applied to the truths that are the Clinton Curse on this nation. The curse continues. If you doubt it - look at the "poll" (likely done in San Francisco or in the office of Heir Clinton) that shows Hillary Clinton outranking Laura Bush as America's most admired woman! Who do you think made SURE that poll had such results? Who is running the Anti-America crusade from the halls of our United States Senate? Who would be DELIGHTED if another terrorist attack occurred just so President Bush could be blamed and voted out of office or removed even before 2004???? Who entertained and nourished terrorists the world over during her first reign of terror? Who made sure real terrorist dangers were ignored while all the US Federal bureacracy went to work AGAINST HER ENEMIES instead of against the enemies of this country?

Wake up, you sleeper! Or worse evils will come upon this nation at the hands of "The Evil".

MiaT - brilliant and on target - as usual.

Comparing Bill Clip-on and his grotesque wife to Hitler and Stalin is a grave, egregious, offensive, and indefensible insult to everyone who suffered and died under their rule. You ought to be ashamed of yourself for trivializing some of histories greatest mass murders.

Impeccable manners you have there, kid. I do not want to see a day go by without some reference to the damage the Clintons have done and continue to do to our country, our morals, our safety, and our lives. To forget (or ignore) one's enemies only makes one more vunerable to them.

Wish I could spell: Make that "Dictatoress" (probably not a word). If not, "Dictator" will suffice. That is Hillary's goal. She will not be satisfied until she IS America's Stalin. Don't you understand?

The Death Toll for the clintons has yet to be closed out. I have faith that they will rank right up there with the Greatest Mass killers of the last two centuries. If one of bill's gifts to the DPRK goes off on South Korea, who will you blame? The child who pulled the trigger, or the man who gave a child an atomic bomb?

Spare us the lectures and the psycho-babble, please.

This nation will atone for the sin of electing Clinton for the rest of all our lives. 9-11 was just the beginning of his legacy. The stain of his corruption, his flagrant lawlessness, and abuse of power will reverberate for years to come.

Famous philosoper, Sayatona, I believe said: "those who do not learn from history are condemned to repeat it."

Would to God Hitler had such a critic as MiaT before he took full power. Would to God Stalin did as well. Would to God the same for Mao, the same for Pol Pot.

You, "kid", have absolutely no concept of the vile evil that is STILL THERE haunting and threatening to destroy more Americans than 9-11 ever took.

There is ONLY ONE REASON Hitlery Clinton is not in full power in this nation right now. God's mercy and grace, and His powerful answer to the prayers of millions!

MiaT has taken the measure of the Clintons and will not stop her "obsession" until their curse is fully removed from this nation. I only pray that the curious will look at her warnings - and the ridicule - (done with challenging brilliance - enough to hide the truth from "the evil" while revealing it to those seeking the truth) and heed them. By the way, the Clintons do not take ridicule well. If Hitlery gets her way - you won't have to worry about MiaT or others who KNOW the truth about the Clintons and are working to get those truths OUT while there is still time (such as our own Doug from Upland). Under the next Clinton reign of terror, such "protest posts" will not be allowed and those doing so will likely be in jail or worse.

Dictators do not tolerate protests or criticism well.

And your ignorance of what makes Hillary Clnton "tick" boggles the mind. Do some research and come back and talk.

You present a false dichotomy. The Koreans are responsible adults and if they should set off a nuclear bomb, they will be held accountable. Clinton should, of course, get some of the blame, but the overwhelming burden is on the shoulders of the trigger-man.

Mia T: This is off subject, but I have heard that there is a picture of the Klintoons burning the American flag on the Kremlin steps. Taken sometime in the 1960's. If this is true, do you have that picture? Friends say it was published in newspapers prior to 1992 elections. I would love to see it. Thanks.

Good job Mia T. (The subliminal message is to ignore these Clinton lovers, as loud and abrasive as they are.) I like your reference to the bridge to nowhere a well as the fact that the Lie Berry looks like a double wide. I repeat, good job.

Do you really have to ask? W. will be blamed for it. You keep forgetting the DNC, the major networks as well as most of the world have declared the Klintoons to be infallible.

That is Hillary's goal. She will not be satisfied until she IS America's Stalin. Don't you understand?

I understand that in order to have a police state we would need to weaken the 4th amendment, expand powers of domestic surveillance and wiretapping, monitor all internet traffic & email, and deny criminal defendants the right to counsel - all things which have happened since 9/11.

The seeds are being planted, the only question now is who will harvest them?

You are frighteningly right.

She's working just as hard now to get back in the seat of power and destroy more of it . . . as hard as she ever has worked toward her elevation at our destruction [not realizing what a house of sand on sand that would be].

I assume you've seen the poll on Shrillery thread #11 by doug from upland???

Agreed - sadly. The stage is being set - perfectly - for a dictator's delights. Hillary is salivating at the possibilities.

President Bush will NOT abuse power. But we KNOW the Clintons LIVE TO ABUSE POWER, as has every Dictator wannabe before them.

Zimbabwe offers clear indications of what Hillary seeks. She wants to control people through the use of state control of food (and water) and energy, not to mention private property and wealth. All "for the chilrun" of course.

Every Marxist dictator has wanted, and has used, these tools of mass control. The anti-terrorism measures have laid the foundations for the next power abusing "President" and who is the most likely such "candidate" standing in the wings - so close to power she is being driven almost insane by the lust for it????

Those who think she is going to "wait" until 2008 are naive to the nth degree. She is RIGHT NOW WORKING WITH THE ENEMIES OF THIS COUNTRY TO ACCOMPLISH HER GOALS!
