Life: What a Wonderful Choice

By mike flugennockSaturday - April 15th, 1995Categories: Clintontime, Health Care, liberty

About the same time the anti-abortion fanatics were defacing Dave Letterman’s program with their “Life: What A Wonderful Choice” issue ads, their foot soldiers in the field were busy bombing clinic and shooting at doctors — and patients. A spate of clinic shootings and bombings around mid-1995ish went largely unremarked on by President Bill, as I recall, as Mr. Bill may have been busy trying to provoke Iraq and “reform” welfare (as we know it).

Most Favored Nation

It was the fifth anniversary of the atrocities of Tiananmen Square, still close enough to be fresh in many peoples’ minds. Bill Clinton had already famously, massively broken his campaign promise to not sign the North American Free Trade Agreement, and now it was time to snuggle up to the Chinese regime by awarding them “Most Favored Nation” trade status.

Clinton’s (insert failed domestic initiative here)

By mike flugennockSunday - October 31st, 1993Categories: Clintontime, Economy, Health Care, Iraq, liberty, war and peace

With President Bubba ensconced in the Oval Office, we saw a quickly-established pattern of failure in domestic policy initiatives followed by dick-wiggling and small-scale military intervention overseas — or some bad-assed “criminal justice” action at home — in an effort to appear “Presidential”. This was especially noticeable in the areas of economic stimulus and the last laughable attempt at health care “reform”.
