I served with the Dalai Lama. The Dalai Lama is my friend. Agent 00077, Hampton is no Dalai Lama. (credit to Lloyd Bentsen; 1988)
Only one thing to say to you, Hampton, regarding your posture on Clinton: Can you say "Alan Greenspan?" Can you say "Bob Rubin? Can you say "DJIA at all-time high?"
Hell, if we all had to pony up to pay for a "hummer patrol," it would be worth it, cause for dammed sure the intensity of faith in this market by small investors would not have been there given a Bob Dole, or even a George Bush, for that matter.
Let him/her who can honestly say they wouldn't/haven't lied about similar circumstances cast the first removal vote. Meanwhile, I'll enjoy, along with most who have come into this market in the last six years, the investing environment we have, thanks to that philanderer Clinton, and his team of Rubin, Greenspan, and others.
But you and all the other democrats give clinton WAY TOO MUCH credit for the bull market of the 90's. And he's all but happy to take the credit. Alan Greenspan knows a whole hell of alot more than he does about the economy. If clinton did appoint him it was because some advisor told him to. As far as lying and removal votes. I would not have lied abot this because the way i see it the best way to keep the dogs at bay. Referring to what you democrats call the republican conspiracy. Is to not give them any ammo to work with. Someone forgot to clue clinton in to this. He knew there were ememies out to get him when he did what he did. He could have punched a hole in their case if he had just said yes i did it when he had the chance. About 6 or 7 months ago there were alot of moderate republicans out there willing to forgive him. BUT NO what does this freakl do.? He lies to a grand jury under oath. Now he wants to whine about about being held accountable for that. I wonder if Clinton knows what the definition of Orange Jumpsuit is?
appointed by Reagan or Bush? Sorry, but I can't give too much credit to Clinton. It is Republican mindthink to encourage the growth of retirement investing--the Democrats would prefer to keep us all on entitlements in our old age. But Hampton, don't think I totally share your views--I don't think of the market as a casino where I'm putting my money on crime. If PZN can give the government some healthy competition than I'm all for it--it's one of the few ways to get some accountability from the pols.
other than Rubin & Greenspan, I think things are good despite their boss. Demographics, world markets, corporate streamling, innovation, etc. are making this President look better than he should. He did learn early to adopt conservative strategies which have served us all much better than his early dereailed liberal agenda would have.
No doubt this is the greatest country in the world. It's strength comes from many sources (perhaps in most part from diversity, as contrasted to Japan). Having a confessed liar at the helm bothers me.
I really don't care what you people think of me. I have just asked what i thought were reasonable questions about PZN . And I've tried to do it a way that was not offensive to anyone because afterall i do not know any of you. If you can't handle some friendly critcism thats your problem not mine. Your Money do what ya want!!!! However, i'll stop being a stick in the mud on the boards and direct my questions directly to the governor and start digging there. And ask him why he thinks PZN is a good idea. But, he is a friend of Clinton so will be interesting to see what he has to say. Clinton needs to GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
