well, i am just writing my feelings on paper. hahaha, did you read it?

and i am not saying forget it. but just let it play out. our emotions are very strong right now, and that is never healthy when making decisions. give it a day or two, let things cool out and the facts trickle out, then we can start this argument again.

did you guys ever have the 48 hour cool off period after tests where you could not discuss the results w/ your teacher? well, everyone is so emotionally attached to this, that it is overwhelming our society.

if you don't want to discuss it you are free to move on to another thread. some of us here give a shit. let us discuss without you derailing it by saying we're "emotional" and that our decisions are invalid.

sidenote: bush commuted Libby's sentence on Monday. Today is Wednesday. 2 days?

It's been 53 hours since apparently it's time to keep score on that.

Is that really all you have though? "You're overreacting cause it's only been 2 days." That's a terrible rebuttal of our posts.

I did, you are young, things are confusing then. But change can be great, you'll find those feelings will come in and out of your life throughout...

What is there to play out? What facts aren't out?

Writing anyone off as "emotional" isn't productive at all.

Well that's your opinion, and a pretty arrogant one at that, but there are many in here and out in the rest of the world that don't agree at all.

They may support your view, but few would argue that you made "excellent rebuttals".

I'm guessing that's a partisan remark. This really isn't a partisan issue, it's ashame so many made it that way with using Clinton as a rebuttal point, but this has nothing to do with party lines. It has to do with accountability and how this administration is making it their legacy that they don't believe in accountability. The war, torture, etc it's all about denying accountability with this administration.

while it doesn't directly, everything is politically motivated. that is what is so bad about that city. no matter what party you are, when you go there you become so corrupt, b/c you have to please the different lobbying groups, financial backers and your constituents.

regarding libby, i already stated my position so i won't go into that. but the clinton reiterates the fact that presidents use it. it's not a new thing.

Well, if you look at the crimes Clinton has pardoned people for, it does make a difference. I didn't look at the whole list and I DO think Clinton was/is corrupt, but one of them was the distribution of marajuana, and that's no biggie -- even though I hate marajuana and never wanna smell that crap.

Clinton's a bastard. He paved the way for what Bush is doing by emphasizing the threat of Saddam Hussein in the minds of the American people to look tough, only so the Bush administration could exploit that after 9/11.

According to Scott Ritter, he also allowed the CIA to infiltrate the UN weapons inspections regime -- in violation of agreements between the UN and Saddam's regime -- which prompted Saddam kicking out the inspectors on the late 90s.

Clinton also signed into law the extradition legislation allowing people in the US to be deported to their "countries of origin" to be tortured.

A Frontline program in 1998/1999 showed how Clinton allowed Jack Abramoff to swindle a native American tribe of the money they paid to get access to the administration in the form of diners, but also -- most importantly -- their land by claiming rights to the oil they wished to dig up.

Clinton is loved by the black community, but his support was mostly in the form of lip service. Legislatively, he hurt the black community by signing Welfare reform in 1996 to win the election and by signing conservative laws like "3 strikes and you're out".

Bush is so much worse than Clinton and his cronies have gotten away with so much destruction and murder and all kinds of violations far more serious than Whitewater, so Bush is far, far more corrupt, but Clinton really let the American people and the world down because he's a disgusting hypocrite who understands so much more about the nuances of the world and human nature, and he still let people down. It cannot be forgotten how the American people let him do that, as they look forward to future presidents.

That don't have anything to do with the issue at hand, but sure.
