I now understand everything. Because of the moral teachings of an enlightened teacher from the west, I now know how the universe works. Consider:

1. The philandering of a married man is due to the personal failings of his wife, and

2. The wilful actions of psychotic misanthropes convinced that violent destruction is the will of God is the result of the (admittedly, unspecificed) actions of George W Bush.

Thank you, Lifeman. What a strange moral universe you dwell in.

George W Bush may be an idiot, but he'll certainly not be lacking in peers while you're around.

... DO NOT project your inability (or Clinton's) to control yourself onto me.

Wait, Scot -- if he's attributing his and Clinton's inability to control himself to Hilary... and you're saying he's projecting it onto you... you don't mean to say that in real life, you're... you're... [Eek!]

Arietty,

Further to your comment about inhalation, I've given some thought to my earlier comments about Bill Clinton and much register distaste about Mr
Clinton's use of a cigar with Monica. What I find particularly offensive is the type of cigar used.

One thing we Brits are very bad at making is cigars (generally machine-rolling cheap tobacco from Virginia and Honduras). Things like Benson and Hedges' Hamlets are best used for Mr Clinton's purposes but he reputably used a Cuban cigar (for all I know a Monte Christo No. 4!) and this I find both wasteful and thoroughly dispectful to what are the best cigars in the world.

I was surprised though that no one has seen fit to praise Mr Clinton for talents as a saxaphonist
(or to Erin, would that be 'sexophonist'?).

Well I think Bill was a pretty good pres. I heard a speech he made last year that was very good. I didn't quite buy his arguments about the missile shield, but his thoughts on third world economies, and how to improve them were very positive.

His speech is here: The Struggle for the Soul of the 21st century

I can't quite remember how Eddie Izzard put it, but he made some balanced comments on the affair thing, running along the lines of: Stalin killed 20 million... Clinton had an affair. He could have done a lot worse.

I think that, the Monica Lewinski affair apart, President Clinton was quite a good President who did his job well and, although he lied initially saiyng "I did not have sex with that woman" he confessed that he lied and his standing and public esteem was improved because of this.

I think only his wife should have sucked his penis, though. [Projectile]

Well! Where to I begin?

First off, in reading you initial post, I just assumed the Aliens had begun vacuuming the verb-forming parts of your brain.

My mistake.

Alas.

Oh well.

Thank you for your 4th of July well-wishes. We spent it at our cabin near a small mountain town that had an absolutely splendid parade. The parade made up for its brevity by going around twice. Although we enjoyed it when the denizens of the local bar came by the second time throwing Jolly Rancher candy, the excitement paled somewhat when the entire congregation of the local community church motored by on a flatbed truck reprising "Shine, Jesus, Shine" out of tune.

More regrets: I have not seen the film you reference. It's probably too intellectual for me.

If memory serves me correctly the declaration of independence was made by congress was on the 2nd July 1776.
Why do the citizens of the US celebrate on the 4th July?

I do not remember the date that Richard Henry Lee of Virginia proposed and John Adams of Massachusetts seconded the resolution declaring the colonies free and independent states. However, the document drafted almost completely by Thomas Jefferson out of a committee composed of him and John Adams, Roger Sherman, and Robert Livingstone, was unanimously adoped on July 4, 1776, by the Second Continental Congress.

Fair copies were made showing that date.

The resolution declaring independence was adopted by the Continental Congress on July 2, 1776. The final version of the document now known as the "Declaration of Independence" was adopted on July 4, 1776. If I recall correctly, John Adams believed that the celebration should have been on July 2.

I just read David McCullough's biography of John Adams - he did indeed originally expect the national day to be July 2, but had no problem showing up at July 4 celebrations. And plenty of Americans will already know this, but our friends might be interested to know that Adams and Jefferson both died on the 50th anniversary of the adoption of the Declaration - 4 July 1826.

I wish I could remember which one it was whose last words were "Thank God [the other one] still lives."

This is significant because at one time they were bitter political rivals.

It was Adams; what he said was "Thomas Jefferson survives."

Which in fact wasn't true -- Jefferson had died a few hours earlier.

James Monroe (5th president under the current constitution) also died on the Fourth of July, although in 1831.

No, we're waiting for Pee-Pee the Lutheran to get drunk and post again.

And, Lifeman, FWIW, Clinton isn't a con; he was acquited. But he is a pro.

well this has been one weird freaking thread.

I actually made it to Independence Hall for the 4th of July this year. It was a nice visit...came too close to the end of the day, and Colin Powell had been there to receive an award, so a good bit of it was cordoned off, but still...very nice. I saw a copy of the Magna Carta from 1297...eesh.

Anyway, Jefferson, I was told, submitted the draft of the Declaration July 2nd, but everyone spent two days editing it before a final version was drafted. I think the copy does indeed read July 4th. No one signed it at that time, and it wasn't read until July 8th, so the 4th seems like a pretty weird date...but that was the date on the document, I think.

And yes, racism in the north is every bit as bad as racism in the south. It's of a different kind, but it's certainly there...

As the fundiest person here, I wonder whether there is any future in dialectic with a person who, although they know how to use 'rebarbative' to engage my repellent attempts at wit, does not know what the singular of phenomena is, as in 'An especially common phenomena'.

I'm just an old Lancastrian with a 3rd me, that's what you get for allowing pebble dash, terraced, council house (project) kids in to grammar school. You have to go to Oxford to encounter the source of the phenomenon of rebarbative, anti-Catholic, fundamentalist, barbarism which I used to display as a kid. Now Cambridge ...

My favourite sesquipedalian word at the moment ... apart from that - is the awesomely onomatopoeic borborygmus.
