2. Why don't you spend a little time rebutting your own post
instead of biting off more.

3. "> Bill Clinton's birth date lottery number is 311, drawn December 1,1969,
would pretty much put you out of the picking. Anything
past about 240 is usually exempt due to quotas reached.

As for this:

"> P. S. Please forward this to as many people as you can! We don't
> want this woman to even THINK of running for President.

Call it what it is. Little dick men being afraid of the
big scary woman. Tell them to get testosterone shots and
read a book. That should just about neutralize their fears.

4. Not McWhorter
Edited on Fri Jan-23-04 05:35 PM by ieoeja
First of all, and you can look it up on snopes.com, McWhorter did NOT write this and is rather furious that someone attached his name to it. So you can start there.

Number 2: who cares? Is Clinton running for office?

Number 3: the portions about Clinton's military career contains a load of lies. Clinton was ROTC. When he dropped out of ROTC he applied for a draft deferrment. Unlike 100% of the Republican leadership in the House and Senate, Clinton grew up poor to middle class with no political connections. Therefore, his application was rejected. He went through the draft and his number was NOT pulled. He got lucky.

After the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, which killed six and injured 1,000; President Clinton promised that those responsible would be hunted down and punished.

Clinton kept his promise. During his presidency these people were arrested, convicted and are currently serving life sentences in federal prison.


After the 1995 bombing in Saudi Arabia, which killed five U.S. military personnel; Clinton promised that those responsible would be hunted down and punished.

Clinton kept his promise. During his presidency these people were arrested, convicted and are currently serving life sentences in federal prison.


After the 1996 Khobar Towers bombing in Saudi Arabia, which killed 19 and injured 200 U.S. military personnel; Clinton promised that those responsible would be hunted down and punished.

Clinton kept his promise. During his presidency these people were arrested, convicted and executed in Saudi Arabia.


After the 1998 bombing of U.S. embassies in Africa, which killed 224 and injured 5,000; Clinton promised that those responsible would be hunted down and punished.

Clinton launched the most extensive manhunt in the history of the United States to capture or kill Osama bin Laden. This hunt was opposed by Republicans in congress and was called off by W shortly after he succeeded Clinton in the White House.


After the 2000 bombing of the USS Cole, which killed 17 and injured 39 U. S. sailors; Clinton promised that those responsible would be hunted down and punished.

Clinton left office two months later.


After the 2001 bombing of the World Trade Center killing almost 3003 people; W said in his first interview afterwards that "my first thought was of getting myself to safety" came out of hiding two days later and promised that those responsible would be hunted down and punished.

When Osama bin Laden was trapped at Tora Bora, Bush chose to rely upon hired mercenaries to capture bin Laden. Osama subsequently escaped. Over two years later he has still failed to do so.

5. Locking
Rules to start discussion threads in the General Discussion forum.

1. If you start a thread in the General Discussion forum, you must present your opinion in a manner that is not inflammatory, which respects differences in opinion, and which is likely to lead to respectful discussion rather than flaming. Some examples of things which should generally be avoided are: unnecessarily hot rhetoric, nicknames for prominent Democrats or their supporters, broad-brush statements about groups of people, single-sentence "drive-by" thread topics, etc.

2. The subject line of a discussion thread must accurately reflect the actual content of the message.

3. The subject line of a discussion thread may not include profanity or swear words, even if words or letters are replaced by asterisks, dashes, or abbreviations.

4. The subject line and the entire text of the message which starts the thread may not include excessive capitalization, or excessive punctuation.

5. If you post an article or other published content which is from a conservative source or which expresses a traditionally conservative viewpoint, you must state your opinion about the piece and/or the issues it raises.

6. You may not start a new discussion thread in order to continue a current or recent flame war from another thread. The moderators have the authority to lock threads in order to contain flaming on a particular topic to only one thread at a time.

7. Discussion topics that mention any or all of the Democratic presidential primary candidates are not permitted in the General Discussion forum, and instead must be posted in the General Discussion: 2004 Primary forum.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation,
DU moderator
