Last night the Ghost Of America's Future visited the White House, and showed Bill Clinton what lies beyond tomorrow. Let's walk with them a bit as the Ghost shows Mr Clinton what he's wrought:

-A woman is working late in her office. She is a single mother, she needs the paycheck. The slimy executive who has been hitting on her notices her light is on, and has decided that tonight's the night. He makes his move. Emboldened by recent events in Washington, he won't take no for an answer.

Bill Clinton is there.

-After trying desperately to resist her superior's advances, the woman relents. Full of shame and humiliation, she picks up the phone. There's no one to call. As she gathers her things to go home, she considers for a moment that she might accuse the man, and seek justice. Instead, she thinks of Paula Jones, and begins to weep.

Bill Clinton is there.

-A father is driving in heavy traffic with his two young children in the backseat. The oldest, a boy of 8 years, says "Dad what's oral sex?."

Bill Clinton is there.

-An accountant with 23 years of untarnished service is finishing up some paperwork for a client when he notices an error on his billing authorization, already signed by the Fortune 500 client. If he lets it go through, he'll make $50,000 more than he's entitled to. The chances of being caught are very slim. He pauses for a moment, then seals the envelope and drops it down the mail chute.

Bill Clinton is there.

-A young couple is returning to the city after dinner with their parents, where they announced their engagement. They are approaching a poorly lit intersection, and proceed through the green light. Also at the intersection at that moment is a carpenter who's had a bad day. He's tired of following the rules. He doesn't feel like stopping tonight. He blasts through.

Bill Clinton is there.

-A college senior is on the ropes... he's almost out of money in his last semester. A former roomate has implicated him in a test-stealing scandal. He's innocent, but his roomate wasn't. His knowledge and failure to act on the cheating could cost them both their college careers. "Stick to the story, no matter what" his roommate says. He does.

Bill Clinton is there

-A husband has had some late nights at the office, working on a project. His wife suspects nothing, but her friend isn't so sure. One night late, the friend drops by to "check" on the husband. They wind up on a couch in the employee lounge.

Bill Clinton is there

-A young widow goes to her lawyer's office to sign some papers pertaining to her husband's death. As she is signing the papers, she feels her lawyer's hands moving up her dress. She files a complaint and is dragged thru the mud as a golddigger, eventually dropping the complaint in disgrace

Bill Clinton is there.

-The board of a large corporation has a problem. Their CEO has been caught in a compromising position with a young subordinate. The stock price is at record highs, but there are rumors of a Justice Department investigation on the horizon. After a heated board meeting, the young staffer is summoned and offered a job with a subsidiary thousands of miles away. He accepts.

Bill Clinton is there.

-The mayor of a small town knows his brother is unethical, but when the city police chief calls to say his brother is going to be charged with embezzling, the mayor calls the city attorney an arranges a cover, in order to pay back the funds.

Bill Clinton is there.

-A writer for a major metropolitan newspaper has the goods on Senior Congressman. The story is locked-solid, all he needs are a few 'non-denial' denials. He phones the Congressman's office, gets his denials. Meanwhile the Congesssman's spokesperson calls the paper's managing editor. The story is killed, the reporter reassigned to the police blotter.

Bill Clinton is there.

-The jury has heard all the evidence in a capital murder case, and both sides have given their final arguments. The jury retires to decide a man's fate. "Let's get this over with" says the foreman, "Or they'll sequester us. We could be here for weeks." "I have a hair appointment Friday afternoon," says the retired librarian. The man is convicted on the first ballot.

Bill Clinton is there.

-Police are escorting a suspect out of a crowd that tried to kill him for assaulting a young girl. As they are driving away from the scene, the man confesses to a friend in the back seat of the police car that he indeed raped the girl. He is charged based on the confession overheard by the policemen in the front seat. A judge rules the confession inadmissable, as the police were protecting the man, not questioning him in the assault.

Bill Clinton is there.



Since 1997, the most ill-informed post I've seen on the forum. Bar none. The question at hand is whether Apple should be forced to open one (and thus, all) iPhones to government investigators. The poster thinks that the government should get what it asks for, and posts a photo to illustrate his point that the FBI is some laudable hero. The most unbelievable thing I've seen on the forum, ever. Click here.

Andrew Cuomo was the architect of the 2008 Crash?

1) “Many of you are well enough off that the tax cuts may have helped you. 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.” – Hillary Clinton

2) “Don’t let anybody tell you that it’s corporations and businesses that create jobs.” -- Hillary Clinton

3) “You know, we can’t keep talking about our dependence on foreign oil and the need to deal with global warming and the challenge that it poses to our climate and to God’s creation and just let business as usual go on, and that means something has to be taken away from some people.” – Hillary Clinton

4) “I can’t worry about every undercapitalized business” — Hillary Clinton testifying before Congress on the effects of Nationalized Health Care.

5) “Yes, we've cut the maternal mortality rate in half, but far too many women are still denied critical access to reproductive health care and safe childbirth, and laws don't count for much if they're not enforced. Rights have to exist in practice — not just on paper. Laws have to be backed up with resources and political will. And deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed.” – Hillary Clinton

6) "We are at a stage in history in which remolding society is one of the great challenges facing all of us in the West." -- Hillary Clinton per Barbara Olson's Hell to Pay: The Unfolding Story of Hillary Rodham Clinton

7) "There are rich people everywhere. And yet they do not contribute to the growth of their own countries.....They don't invest in public schools, in public hospitals, in other kinds of development internally." – Hillary Clinton

8) "No. We just can't trust the American people to make those types of choices ... Government has to make those choices for people." – Hillary Clinton

9) "If you have guns in your home, tell your parents to keep them away from you and your friends and your little brothers and sisters." -- Hillary Clinton to middle school students

10) "I also believe that every new handgun sale or transfer should be registered in a national registry..." -- Hillary Clinton

11) "I think again we’re way out of balance. We’ve got to rein in what has become almost an article of faith that almost anybody can have a gun anywhere at any time. And I don’t believe that is in the best interest of the vast majority of people." -- Hillary Clinton

12) "We came out of the White House not only dead-broke, but in debt. We had no money when we got there and we struggled to piece together the resources for mortgages, for houses, for Chelsea's education. It was not easy." – Hillary Clinton

13) “I remember landing under sniper fire. There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base.” — Hillary Clinton makes up a ridiculous, untrue story about her trip to Bosnia.

14) “In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including Al Qaeda members, though there is apparently no evidence of his involvement in the terrible events of September 11, 2001. It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons. Should he succeed in that endeavor, he could alter the political and security landscape of the Middle East, which as we know all too well affects American security.” — Hillary Clinton, October 10, 2002

15) "There’s a different leader in Syria now. Many of the members of Congress of both parties who have gone to Syria in recent months have said they believe he’s a reformer." -- Hillary Clinton on tyrannical maniac Bashar Assad

16) “With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night decided to go kill some Americans? What difference, at this point, does it make?” -- Hillary Clinton

17) “My husband may have his faults, but he has never lied to me.” -- Hillary Clinton per Kim Eisler's Masters of the Game: Inside the World's Most Powerful Law Firm

18) "Put this (helicopter) on the ground! I left my sunglasses in the limo. I need those sunglasses. We need to go back!" -- Hillary Clinton from Air Force Lt. Colonel Robert Patterson's Dereliction of Duty.

19) "I have to admit that a good deal of what my husband and I have learned (about Islam) has come from my daughter. (As) some of you who are our friends know, she took a course last year in Islamic history." – Hillary Clinton

20) “The last time I actually drove a car myself was 1996.” -- Hillary Clinton
