"Saying it like it is!"
Drugs OK, Microsoft
Evil? Reno's Viewpoint?
This past week's weather
reminds me of the typical summertime weather in the Catskill
Mountains of upstate New York. The air conditioners have been off
for the last eight days. Why am I talking about the weather?
That's easy.. Its about the only thing one can talk about these
days without some over zealous, dribbling at the lips, senate
thumper or congress critter jumping your bones about
"off-color, smut, incorrect, unfair, out of control" or,
"lookout! Its a militia thing".
Then, to radically top
things off.. The Department of Justice is ever so busy attempting
to discover something they can either persecute or prosecute Bill
Gates and Microsoft with. Why Microsoft? The one _real_ success
story in the USA in the last decade or so!! Why?? Why does Janet
"WACO" Reno & Company appear to desperately want to
do them in?? What Gives?? What the heck is really _going on_ in
this country these days?? Reports keep filtering in ..
"The DOJ is busy checking Microsoft this and Microsoft that.
Pick - pick - pick, certainly, this incarnation of the Department
of Justice is not the one we were all taught about as children.
You know, the truth, justice and the American way?? I don't think
The DOJ is spending hundreds
of thousands of dollars trying to find a way to do Microsoft in..
while the ongoing flow of DRUGS into this country is at an all
time high! Cocaine in one poisonous form or another can be found
on almost every street corner. At this time, Columbian gangsters
are flooding this nation with extremely high quality counterfeit
money (100.00 bills) with ease. But amazingly, we see "The
DOJ" hardheartedly pursuing Gates and Microsoft. What is
wrong with this picture?? Microsoft puts "bread and
butter" on how many people's tables in the USA? Both directly
and indirectly? Microsoft pays big time taxes while law-breaking
"Hair Ball Politicians" like Packwood, Rostenkowskie
& friends are seemingly allowed to slide into obscurity
instead of the Defendant's Seat. Again, what's WRONG with THIS
Can Ms. Reno and the DOJ be
_that_ hungry for the headlines?? I hope not. But if such is the
case, let her resign! She'll get plenty of headlines. If it wasn't
for Gates and Microsoft, chances are, we'd be saddled up and stuck
with an operating system and hardware totally imported from and
fully controlled by Japan! Clinton can't seem to get to first base
with Japan on the balance of trade.. yet his "Attorney
General" is feverishly trying to stomp on the most recent
proof that the USA does indeed "have what it takes" and
that the "American Dream" is very much alive. That is,
until Reno & Co get hold of it. Why?? What is the real
reason?? It cannot be attributable to a "government afraid of
being "bought out" by Gates". Sure, we've heard
plenty of jokes about that one but in reality, its just that ..a
Could one of the major
causes of the MS's persecution be the crying and lamenting of
Microsoft's lame duck competitors? You bet!! Can you imagine if
those who are so busy crying and groveling put as much positive
energy and goodwill into their research and development as they do
their snitching and crying?? They'd be busy putting an end to the
US Trade Deficit, balancing the US Budget through increased tax
revenues while gleefully running to their banks with the profits.
Then.. we regretfully find
we are now blessed with Amato, Mr. Purity, proclaiming all kinds
of lily white.. oh, so pure postures. Amato's a confirmed clown
who, periodically, has to apologize publicly for his
unprofessional "off the wall" actions. And then there's
Exon and friends.. He and his buddies are gonna clean up the
Internet. They haven't a clue concerning what the Internet is
really all about. What these "do-gooder", "wanna
make a name for themselves" politicos should be doing is
CLEANING UP THEIR OWN HOUSES!! Then and only then should they
begin to worry about the houses of others.
Seems ..the various proposed
actions against the net managed to grab some national headlines
so... along come the rest of the "spotlight leeches",
the "Johnny Come Lately's"! They all want some of the
spotlight. Including Mr. Bitterness, (I wanna be President!),
himself!! None other than; Robert (Screw Hollywood!) Dole! Anybody
notice how "alone" he's appeared publicly in the last
month or two?? His cheap shots at Hollywood and its Stars finished
him REAL FAST. And thankfully, not too soon too! This fine,
upstanding senior statesman doesn't know the "Internet from a
Hairnet"!! But now, while basking in the spotlight of today's
events.. He's "gonna re-write the rule book" on;
"morals on the net", "accessing the net",
"telecommunications and the net" and finally, more..
de-regulation of the monopolistic cable and phone companies so
"they can offer competitive rates with more and better
services". Right Bob.. Not everyone is a confirmed
"pineapple" as you seem to think. What interests in
these companies have you? Which.. company will you be appointed an
officer in when your term is mercifully over?
Imagine this for a second
folks, they are gonna protect the US citizenry from moral abuse
via the Internet! Who? In heaven's name, do they think they are
kidding besides themselves?? I say let 'em know with telegrams,
E-mail, netmail, faxes and voice calls that we'd rather they
protected each and every one of us and our children from the huge
flow of illegal drugs, both prescription and recreational, pouring
into this country!! Protect us from the hordes of illegal aliens
taking jobs away from US citizens desperately wanting to work!
Protect us from the outrageously lopsided international trade flow
both in Europe and the Pacific Rim!! Finally... Protect us from
those on "The Hill" who wish to re-write The Bill of
Rights! Enough is enough!! Tell them loud and clear ..let's tackle
the REAL THREATS! The threats to the prosperity, peace, safety and
serenity of the citizens and taxpayers of USA! Instead of trying
to "create an "imagined threat" so the "real
deal" can be ignored tell them to do their jobs or, we'll
vote in those who can and will. Yes sir, we'll _all_ diligently
remember each and every one of them in the NEXT GENERAL AND
Maybe.. Ross Perot is right.
Perhaps.. we genuinely do need another political party in the USA.
A party that's by and for the people. One that'll be stand-up and
truthful. One that will sincerely have the entire constituency at
heart. Finally, a party that will defend the Constitution with all
its heart and soul instead of trying to re-write it in an attempt
to satisfy selfish temporary goals!
This Great Nation's birthday
celebration is coming up fast.. I hope and pray the three branches
of our government, Executive, Legislative and Judicial, from the
President on down .. feel and positively respond to the gentle
nudge of the patriotic wake-up call only The Fourth of July can
bring. Please gentlemen and ladies, no more rhetorical B.S., let's
get the country back on track. It should be the US Government by
and for the US Citizens. Not the convoluted way it seems to be
