    Limpy started his cultural hate war in 1982 with the aid of Reagan's man Buchanan.
    He promised to do away with the center and divide the country into left and right.
    The draft-dodging coward Limpballs is to be congratulated for keeping his word .

    No matter how much you want it to wash away everything with a sense of equality.

    Clinton's Draft Avoidance

    Col. Holmes Notarized Statement

    As Entered in Congressional Record (Page: H5551) 7/30/93

    September 7, 1992. Memorandum for Record:
    Subject: Bill Clinton and the University of Arkansas ROTC Program:


    There have been many unanswered questions as to the circumstances surrounding Bill Clinton's involvement with the ROTC department at the University of Arkansas. Prior to this time I have not felt the necessity for discussing the details. The reason I have not done so before is that my poor physical health (a consequence of participation in the Bataan Death March and the subsequent three and a half years interment in Japanese POW camps) has precluded me from getting into what I felt was unnecessary involvement. However, present polls show that there is the imminent danger to our country of a draft dodger becoming Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the United States. While it is true, as Mr. Clinton has stated, that there were many others who avoided serving their country in the Vietnam war, they are not aspiring to be the President of the United States.

    The tremendous implications of the possibility of his becoming Commander-in-Chief of the United States Armed Forces compels me now to comment on the facts concerning Mr. Clinton's evasion of the draft. This account would not have been imperative had Bill Clinton been completely honest with the American public concerning this matter. But as Mr. Clinton replied on a news conference this evening (September 5, 1992) after being asked another particular about his dodging the draft,
    "Almost everyone concerned with these incidents are dead. I have no more comments to make". Since I may be the only person living who can give a first hand account of what actually transpired, I am obligated by my love for my country and my sense of duty to divulge what actually happened and make it a matter of record.

    Bill Clinton came to see me at my home in 1969 to discuss his desire to enroll in the ROTC program at the University of Arkansas. We engaged in an extensive, approximately two (2) hour interview. At no time during this long conversation about his desire to join the program did he inform me of his involvement, participation and actually organizing protests against the United States involvement in South East Asia. He was shrewd enough to realize that had I been aware of his activities, he would not
    have been accepted into the ROTC program as a potential officer in the United States Army.

    The next day I began to receive phone calls regarding Bill Clinton's draft status. I was informed by the draft board that it was of interest to Senator Fullbright's office that Bill Clinton, a Rhodes Scholar, should be admitted to the ROTC program. I received several such calls. The general message conveyed by the draft board to me was that Senator Fullbright's office was putting pressure on them and that they needed my help. I then made the necessary arrangements to enroll Mr. Clinton into the ROTC
    program at the University of Arkansas.

    I was not "saving" him from serving his country, as he erroneously thanked me for in his letter from England (dated December 3,1969). I was making it possible for a Rhodes Scholar to serve in the military as an officer. In retrospect I see that Mr. Clinton had no intention of following through with his agreement to join the Army ROTC program at the University of Arkansas or to attend the University of Arkansas Law School. I had explained to him the necessity of enrolling at the University of Arkansas as a student in order to be eligible to take the ROTC program at the University. He never enrolled at the University of Arkansas, but instead enrolled at Yale after attending Oxford. I believe that he purposely deceived me, using the possibility of joining the
    ROTC as a ploy to work with the draft board to delay his induction and get a new draft classification.

    The December 3rd letter written to me by Mr. Clinton, and subsequently taken from the files by Lt. Col. Clint Jones, my executive officer, was placed into the ROTC files so that a record would be available in case the applicant should again petition to enter the ROTC program. The information in that letter alone would have restricted Bill Clinton from ever qualifying to be an officer in the United States Military. Even more significant was his lack of veracity in purposefully defrauding the military by deceiving me, both in concealing his anti-military activities overseas and his counterfeit intentions for later military service. These actions cause me to question both his patriotism and his integrity. When I consider the caliber, the bravery, and the patriotism of the fine young soldiers whose deaths I have witnessed, and others whose funerals I have attended.... When I reflect on not only the willingness but eagerness that so many of them displayed in their earnest desire to defend and serve their country, it is untenable and incomprehensible to me that a man who was not merely unwilling to serve his country, but actually protested against its military, should ever be in the position of Commander-in-Chief of our armed Forces.

    I write this declaration not only for the living and future generations, but for those who fought and died for our country. If space and time permitted I would include the names of the ones I knew and fought with, and along with them I would mention my brother Bob, who was killed during World War II and is buried in Cambridge, England (at the age of 23, about the age Bill Clinton was when he was over in England protesting the war). I have agonized over whether or not to submit this statement to the American people. But, I realize that even though I served my country by being in the military for over 32 years, and having gone through the ordeal of months of combat under the worst of conditions followed by years of imprisonment by the Japanese,it is not enough. I'm writing these comments to let everyone know that I love my country more than I do my own personal security and well-being. I will go to my grave loving these United States of America and the liberty for which so many men have
    fought and died. Because of my poor physical condition this will be my final statement. I will make no further comments to any of the media regarding this issue.

    You don't appeal to dead enders... you simply call them what they are and move on.

    For those who have an open mind, and aren't wussed-out hemophiliacs... they just might wonder what this " being ignorant if you vote Demokrat" is about.

    Being a bit of a vet here at DP... virtually all the Demokrats are lost causes. Logic just doesn't reach the idiot fringe. So... I'll identify them for what they are... and you never know... one just might wake up and snap their brain out of the Leftist gulag.

    It can be done if you have an open mind... for I am living proof... I used to be a Leftist.

    What a load of dung...

    Partisanship hit new heights when the Demokrats lost Congress in 94... before that, when they had 40-years of control and the mainstream media was an uncontested propaganda mill... there wasn't a problem.

    Now... the party is simply bonkers, and their propagandists are just as vile. They simply cannot stand having even a little competition, a little challenge to their goofball, failed ideas.

    Tell me,how has President Ebola done with his claim there is no Red State, no Blue State, just the United States?
    At best they'z Werdz... just werdz...more accurately, he is a partisan lying sack of it.

    Nope. Never said such a thing. Not once. This is your straw man... AGAIN. It won't work to cover your incredibly ignorant statement of:

    Slavery had nothing to do with racism. -- apdst

    What you don't get is that 100 lynchings is by far worse than one lynching.
