Really? Get rid of the damn sticker! It's not 1997!

The Clintons
Dear Mr. Ex President Clinton :

I recently saw a bumper sticker that said, "Thank me, I voted for Clinton-Gore."So, I sat down and reflected on that. I am sending my "Thank you" for what you have done, specifically:

1. Thank you for introducing us to Jennifer Flowers, Paula Jones ,Monica Lewinsky , Dolly Kyle Browning, Kathleen Willey, and JuanitaBroderick .Did I leave anyone out?
2. Thank you for teaching my younger siblings and I about oral sex.
3. Thank you for showing us that sexual harassment in the work place(especially the White House) and on the job is OK.And all you have to know is what the meaning of "sex" is.It really is great to know that certain sexual acts are not sex, and oneperson may have sex while the other one does NOT have sex.
4. Thank you for reintroducing the concept of impeachment to a newgeneration and demonstrating that the ridiculous plot of the movie "Wag the Dog" could be plausible after all.
5. Thanks for making Jimmy Carter look competent, Gerald Ford look graceful, Richard Nixon look honest, Lyndon Johnson look truthful, and John Kennedy look moral.
6. Thank you for the 73 House and Senate witnesses who have pled the5th Amendment and 17 witnesses who have fled the country to avoid testifying about Democratic campaign fund raising
7. Thank you, for the 19 charges, 8 convictions, and 4 imprisonments from the Whitewater "mess" and the 55 criminal charges and 32 criminal convictions (so far) in the other "Clinton" scandals.
8. Thanks also for reducing our military by half, "gutting" much ofour foreign policy, and flying all over the world on "vacations"carefully disguised as necessary trips.
9. Thank you, also, for "finding" millions of dollars (I reallydidn't need it in the first place, and I can't think of a more deserving group of recipients for my hard-earned tax dollars) for all of your globe-trotting.I understand you, the family, and your cronies have logged in more time aboard Air Force One than any other administration.
10. Now that you've left the White House, thanks for the 140 pardonsof convicted felons and indicted felons-in-exile.We will love to have them rejoin society. (Not to mention the scoresyou pardoned while Governor of Arkansas)
11. Thanks also for removing the White House silverware.I'm sure that Laura Bush didn't like the pattern anyway.Also, enjoy the housewarming gifts you've received from your "friends."
12. Thanks to you and your staff in the West Wing of the White Housefor vandalizing and destroying government property on the way out.I also appreciate removing all of that excess weight (China ,silverware, linen, towels, ash trays, soap, pens, magnetic compass,flight manuals, etc.) out of Air Force 1.The weight savings means burning less fuel, thus less tax dollars spent on jet fuel. Thank you!
13. And finally, please ensure that Hillary enjoys the $8 million dollar advance for her "tell-all" book and you, Bill, the $10 million advance for your memoirs.Who says crime doesn't pay!
14. The last and most important point - thank you for forcing Israel to let Mohammed Atta go free. Terrorist pilot Mohammed Atta blew up a bus in Israel in 1986.The Israelis captured, tried and imprisoned him. As part of the Oslo agreement with the Palestinians in 1993, Israel had to agree to release so-called "political prisoners".However, the Israelis would not release any with blood on their hands.The American President at the time, Bill Clinton, and his Secretary of State, Warren Christopher, "insisted" that all prisoners be released.Thus Mohammed Atta was freed and eventually thanked the US by flying an airplane into Tower One of the World Trade Center .This was reported by many of the American TV networks at the time that the terrorists were first identified.It was censored in the US from all later reports.Why shouldn't Americans know the real truth?What a guy!!

If you agree that the American public must be made aware of these facts, pass this on.God bless America and THANK YOU (once again) for spending my taxes so wisely and frugally.

A US Citizen

PS.Please pass along a special thank you to Al Gore for "inventing" the Internet, without which I would not be able to send this wonderful, factual e-mail.

AND THE REST OF THE STORY Hillary Rodham Clinton, as a New York State Senator, now comes under the"Congressional Retirement and StaffingPlan," which means that even if she never gets reelected, she STILL receives her Congressional salary until she dies.(Would it not be nice if all Americans were pension eligible after only4 years?)If Bill outlives her, he then inherits HER salary until HE dies.He is already getting his Presidential salary until he dies. If Hillary out lives Bill, she also gets HIS salary until she dies. Guess who pays for that? WE DO! It's common knowledge that in order for her to establish NY residency,they purchased a million dollar-plus house in upscale Chappaqua , NewYork. Makes sense.They are entitled to Secret Service protection for life. Still makes sense. Here is where it becomes interesting. Their mortgage payments hover at around $10,000 per month. BUT, an extra residence HAD to be built within the acreage to house the Secret Service agents.The Clintons charge the Federal government $10,000 monthly rent for theuse of that extra residence, which is just about equal to their mortgage payment. This means that we, the taxpayers, are paying the Clinton 's salary,mortgage, transportation, safety and security, as well as the salariesfor their 12 man staff -- and, this is all perfectly legal!

Who I am...

I've been around for 23 years and I probably only know 1% of who I am. I think people aren't telling the truth when they claim to know all about themselves. How can they, unless they base their identity on their career, or interests, or check book. I don't think I'll fully understand who I am until I understand more completely The One who thought of me in the first place. I catch small glimpses of myself... when I sing or write I see passion and expression, when I converse with others I recognize my need for relationship and the desire to be known and loved. Would it be safe to say that who we really are is found outside of our 5 senses (but not excluding them)? That thought brings me comfort because when I roll out of bed and go to the job that's unfulfilling, or when I turn on the TV and see a celebrity that appears to have ''made it'', I come to the conclusion that none of us have arrived yet. Some of us are just better at forgetting that we're lost. I also see that we all want to imitate something greater than ourselves... or someONE greater. It's all around us. We live in a schizophrenic society, where people try to fit in everywhere with everyone, being everything to every person and losing who they really are in the process. I don't blame anyone for it. I find myself doing the same thing. So is there an answer to this way of living? I once heard somebody talk about choosing Life moment by moment. Do we really choose Life as though it were an option? Or do we wake up to each day and look at it as though it were this big uncontrollable machine? I believe Life is an option. and it's in accepting that, that we will find our true identity. I choose Life abundantly and I know one day we will come face to face. and at last, I will really know who I am, alongside yourself. Hopefully mine will get better.

Welcome to the Unites Socialist States of America...

I think it goes without saying that I am both shocked and disgusted by the outcome of Tuesday's Presidential election. I know by reading comments and talking with others that I am not alone in this. It is a sad commentary on the people of this country that so many could mistake articulate for intelligent and ready to lead. It is sad that so many could be swayed by hollow promises. An intense hatred by the left wing of President Bush led to the defeat of John McCain. How pathetic so many people could not look at the facts and vote for the man based on those facts, rather than what they felt to be the failures of his predecessor. The downward spiral toward socialism in this country has begun. For those of you who voted for McCain/Palin, you can take pride knowing you did the right thing. For those of you who didn't: enjoy the next four years of "CHANGE" because after Barack Obama and his congressional liberal buddies get done raping your paychecks to pay for their proposed trillions in new spending, that is all you'll have left.

I will stand strong!

Many of you know that I am strongly against abortion of any kinds, and I want to do whatever I can to fight it. Last night was probably emotionally draining for many people as they saw one of the most rabidly pro-abortion candidates ever get elected as the next president of the United States. Some are even saying that the pro-life movement was set back at least 30 years last night. Last night I watched the acceptance speech of Barrack Obama. I watched as Jesse Jackson and Oprah Winfrey were trying to hold back the tears of joy and hope. I listened to interviews with pastors and civil rights leaders and my heart broke as they talked about Obama like he was the Messiah. I understand that this is a monumental event in the history of our nation. I also understand that our hope lies in no man.

As the results came in last night, the political landscape of this country was changed. Men and women will be either taking new positions of power or stepping down from positions they once held. Laws and policies will change, and we will have to adjust to this new direction our world in heading into. One thing, however, did not change last night. One position of power was not affected in the least bit. While we will have a new President in the White House, the Throne of God remains sovereign. Our one and only true Hope is still our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Two things I heard last night were “change is coming” and “yes we can”. Change is coming, and I am not going to cower or back down in the face of this change. Change is coming, and the battle for the sanctity of human life will be tougher; my resolve to win this battle is stronger.

If change is what they want, then we shall give them change. We will destroy and deny the apathetic spirit that has had a hold on this generation for too long. We need to raise our voices louder than ever before until we see the end of this abortion holocaust. We will share the only true Hope for this world without shame or fear. We will not chant “yes we can” but rather “yes we will”. We will believe what God promises us in Philippians 4:13 - “I can do all things through Him who strengthens me”. I have often said I do not know why God has put this so strongly on my heart, but I am humbled and honored to be able to serve God in this manner. I know that I have a responsibility to stand up in the darkest times and trust in the Light of Christ to lead us to victory. I stand before you today and pledge to you that I will not be defeated by this election. I refuse to allow any earthly setbacks discourage or slow me down in this fight for life. I promise you that I will never lie down or quit; I will stand true until my last breath. My hope is that all Christians will continually stand firm against this, and pray for our country and new leader, because this will be some of the toughest 4 years of most of our lives!
