No, Mr. Giuliani, she is not stupid

We’ll have to disagree with former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani.

“The president of the United States, her husband, disgraced this country with what he did in the Oval Office, and she didn’t just stand by him, she attacked Monica Lewinsky,” Giuliani said in a video posted on social media, according to an LA times account of that online video. “And after being married to Bill Clinton for 20 years, if you didn’t know the moment Monica Lewinsky said that Bill Clinton violated her that she was telling the truth, then you’re too stupid to be president.”

No, she is not too stupid. She knew full well what was going on but for her the truth and character are irrelevant. She is willing to attack anyone at anytime for any reason if it serves her purpose.

She is malevolent, unprincipled, cunning, vindictive, manipulative, ruthless and self-absorbed, but not stupid.

Clinton once described the youthful, gullible, starry-eyed, duped, vulnerable intern Monica Lewinsky as a “narcissistic loony toon.” Truth is unimportant to Clinton.

    Clinton is all of the things you say but it doesn’t matter to her supporters, it isn’t about returning to glory days of her husband’s tenure, they weren’t glory days, they were seamy and unproductive, Republicans with cojones controlled events, with her it is sheer greed and a near mad lust for power. Obama’s policies have been anti-American, hers will be beyond that, they will be pro-Hillary and anti-everything and everybody else.

    Today’s Second Amendment Moment: another shooting at an elementary school.

  3. Vernon Clayson says:

    Yes, nyp, the gun and the 2nd amendment did it, the malefactor was merely incidental.

  4. nyp says:

    good point — he could have tried to strangle those kids and teachers.

  5. Steve says:

    At least 19 people were killed and 26 injured in a stabbing spree at a facility for disabled people

    Time for more gun control.

  6. nyp says:

    think of all the mass stabbings we suffer from in this country. Seems like every day there is another report of a mass stabbing, or of officers stabbed in the line of duty, or of entire classes of second graders sythed down.

  7. Steve says:

    yup, that’s what will happen once you get your wish.

    Then you can go after all the knife control laws you will find suddenly become necessary.

    What’s wrong with going after people who commit the crimes, rather than the people who don’t?

    OR is your stated purpose merely a cover for something completely different?

  8. nyp says:

    it’s for world domination
    and fiat money

    We have those second amendment days every day here in Chicago, expect to see over 600 deaths by the end of the year and there have been at least 3234 shootings this year to date in Chicago. According to the Chicago Tribune there were 7 yesterday, 7 the day before, 11 on Monday and 41 over the weekend. Not sure how many of these folks survived.

    As most of these shootings are gang related, most all of these guns are illegal already. I don’t see the connection between gun control and reducing crime, since gun control is not working on the south and west sides of the city of Chicago.

  10. nyp says:

    Hmm… could it possibly be that gang members obtain guns legally in states with lax or non-existent gun regulations and then bring them in over state lines?

    Nah, too implausible.

  11. bc says:

    You cannot say there are no regulations, the Feds have a whole slew of them including purchasing guns on behalf of those who cannot legally own. A lot of those that do come here are from Indiana where the state rules are more lax than here, or so I hear.

    Point here is supply and demand, there is a strong demand so a supply will appear. The demand is driven by gang warfare and that in turn is driven by drug money and broken family structure in some of these neighborhoods. Add to that a poor relationship between the Chicago Police Department and the folks in these neighborhoods, driven a large part by a police culture of “we will do what we want and you cannot stop us” that has existed for years, a culture that is trained into the CPD officers from the first day as a rookie.

    What is the answer to that, I don’t know. A lot of moving parts. Better efforts to control arms coming from out of state might help, better training and accountability with CPD would help, better economic opportunities in the worst parts of town might help the family structure, but the big one is drugs. Drug money drives demand and I do not know the answer to that one.

  12. nyp says:

    I do not necessarily disagree with that.

  13. Rincon says:

    It’s either decriminalize, maintain the present stupidity or start jailing large numbers of users to discourage demand. Those are the only choices so far as I can see. Many states and countries have decriminalized drugs of one kind or another. I’m not aware of any disasters.

  14. Steve says:

    The problem with decriminalization is in the way we do it.
    We make the fee’s and taxes so high, the prices for the legal stuff actually end up supporting the illegal trade.
    The answer, as usual, is to get the government out of the business of trying to control the market.

  15. Rincon says:

    It appears that taxes and regulation aren’t the culprits. If we take Westword’s word for it, low supply and the consequent lack of competition created very high prices in the beginning. As more suppliers have come on board, the prices have dropped dramatically. I suppose regulators could be blamed for slowing the process so much that suppliers were delayed in their efforts, but fees and taxes don’t seem to be the problem.

  16. Steve says:

    That’s Colorado. It took competition to make prices fall, no matter what the fee’s and taxes. And revenues in Colorado remain impressive.

    Here, they limited the number of dispensary’s for medical supply and we have a recreational question on this years ballot.
    If Nevada does the same thing as was done with medical dispensary’s, prices will climb and current black market operations will benefit.

  17. Rincon says:

    Perhaps in Nevada, the black marketeers are big campaign donors. They have a lot of money, which gives them a big voice.

  18. Steve says:

    Funny. But not really.
    It’s more likely momentum. Used to be a felony in Nevada to have even one seed.

    I do hope the government ends prohibition on this, even though I know people who use it while being against legalizing it.
    Loses its “rebel” value I suppose.
    I think legalization will, eventually, lead to a significant lowering of its use.

  19. Rincon says:

    Speaking as a business owner, if I was a big time drug dealer, I would financially support candidates that wanted drugs to remain illegal.
