I heard that Hillary appeared on stage at one of the relief concerts in New York and was soundly booed. I was told that it was because of her behavior during Bush's speech in the wake of 9-11-01. There is supposed to have been at least one major op/ed piece on the topic. However, I have heard all this second hand. Does anyone know if there is anything to this?

HC has greatly angered a lot of NYC police and fire dept folks for a couple of reasons, the main one being her recent lambasting of the NYPD over the incident where an unarmed man was shot and killed when he pointed an object that looked like a gun at the arresting officers. Her remarks damning the incident were seen as damning ALL NYPD cops. She has also been resented by many of the NYC police and fire dept folks for 'cashing in' on the limelight of these events. Bill was likewise booed at the same event for that reason, but the boos were not so strong for Bill as for Mrs C.

First of all: Welcome to the Mudcat R.M. - Don't expect a great reception from the regulars around here - unless you start pissing people off - that get's you noticed really quickly.

I would recommend that if you have a desire to be liked here - following the basic rules would be a good start (not to imply that you are "breaking" them - my only note is to use "B.S." on a thread like this. Those Mudcatters who dislike B.S. on the board get upset when they feel that they have been "tricked" into viewing a B.S. thread.

Secondly - I was bored during Bush's speech - which is unusual, because most of the time I am incredulous about how poor of a public speaker the man is.

As for Hillary Clinton, I'm not much of a supporter of her either, but frankly, I'm not sure why it should be impolitic for a Democrat to show disinterest in a Republican? And by the way - maybe she was preoccupied with figuring out ways to help her constituents in NYC (Just a guess).

I don't share a lot of people's animosity towards Hillary Clinton, but she really needs to work on her people skills. Image is important to a politician (duh!), and more often than not Hillary comes across as a condescending phony. During Bush's speech, she looked bored, distracted, chatting with the people around her at all the wrong times, etc. Let's remember, this was not a speech to defend a tax rebate or a Social Security lock-box; this was the equivalent of FDR's Day of Infamy speech, and any politician, from whatever party, should know enough about the business of politicking to look like she's taking it seriously. People love to hate Hillary, and she keeps handing them more reasons to do so. It surprises me that she can be so smart, yet so oblivious.

The concert was an interesting clash of personal styles, with celebrities and drunken police/firefighters jockeying for position in front of the mikes. I don't blame the cops and firefighters for indulging -- God knows they needed to blow off a little steam after all they've been through -- but if they were professional musicians, actors or politicians they would have known that getting plastered and stepping in front of a microphone is not a great idea. It doesn't surprise me that they directed some hostility towards Hillary; I'm sure most of them can't relate to her at all.

I can't imagine an intelligent Senator being bored with Bush's speech. Agree with him or not, any thinking person would recognize that this was a serious moment, and that our actions now will have profound consequences for many years to come, so you damn well ought to pay attention. Moreover, any astute politician should know that, even if she is bored or disinterested, she should not make it so obvious to everyone. Ideology aside, I consider Hillary's cluelessness about the image she projects to be one of her greatest failings. And after all these years, she still hasn't figured it out.

Yes, the object was a wallet.

I thought HC's obvious irritation and disdain for Bush's speech was juvenile, at best - it was certainly the wrong place/time to behave that way ... but then I am not a Hillary fan anyway. Whether or not the NYPD and Fire dept folks found that as a single reason for their dislike - I cannot judge.

You're right Kendall, the incident that I had heard was to blame for the NYPD dislike of Hillary was the one where the guy who "pulled his wallet" on the cops was shot 75 times. Hillary's public condemnation of the NYPD was made before any investigation/trial could take place - the incident may well have been as gross a violation, as the headlines make it sound, but the cops involved, and the NYPD felt they deserved their day-in-court just like any other US citizen ... and should not be subject to public judgements by their public officer holders, prior to a trial. This I think is the biggest issue the NYPD has with HC.

I still don't understand why the people of New York would elect to represent them, someone who didn't even LIVE there until she decided she was going to run for office. Was the other choice that bad? Maybe some New Yorkers can enlighten me on this. I have always perceived New Yorkers as sort of a tight-knit bunch, so it surprised me when an outsider was elected.

There were some things about her being booed in the Drudge Report last week.

Kendall,

so she's an intelligent, assertive woman. Does this mean that she cannot also be a sleazy, self-serving, totally insincere, liar who will say whatever is expedient at the moment with no regard to truth or consistancy?

For example, when she was running for office, she "discovered" the Yankees and became a born-again Yankees fan. At least that's what she told the crowds in NYC.

She has never attended a game. Not one game. Some fan.

And she won't go to the World Series either because "congress will be in session".

That I could maybe give her if she has important bills coming up for a vote but I rather doubt that's the case. It's more likely that she wouldn't be caught dead in a ball park where she couldn't network with Important pols.

There'll be time enough to romance the voters later on when she needs the votes again.

Is it not pssible that the night before the speech,being the senator form NY,she up up with planning and decision making re: this momentous event which struck her state? Could she not simply have been stressed and tired?? I'm sure the general content of Bush's speech was not news to her. I have seen her on many programs since 9/11 and she has always and ardently supported Bush's actions and handling of this attack. If she were to attend a game wouldn't she be critized for not working? Sheesh, I'd hate to have some of these judgemental people on a jury.

The speech was not a case where the camera was on Her. A lot of people were stressed out and tired that night including, I'm sure, President Bush. She was alert enough to chat with others before the President began speaking.
Her constituents in NYC wouldn't think she was slacking if she took in a game. I think that they are aware of how much work is involved in her job. Don't sell people short.
Judgemental goes both ways. There are those who think that Hillary can do no wrong, too.

I suspect it would help her with NY voters (in the city anyway) if she did attend a game. I'm a bit surprised she hasn't been advised to do that. The cameras would be on her from time to time, you can bet on that. It might call for a better acting job, though, than she is capable of. She would have to look like she was having a good time for it to work to her advantage.

And she has a right to roll her eyes and offer only "golf claps" during Bush's speech if she wants. What's the big deal? You people are just jellous because she got elected to a bigtime office by people who did not even know that she isn't from New york. And she is a lot better looking than bushes wife who looks like she spent 8 million bucks on plastic surgury. Go eat some sour grapes and crowes.

While it might have been impolitic on Senator Clinton's part to show it- although many others in the audience looked equally unimpresses- Dumbya's speech was, well, boring. And inane.

Do we really want to judge senators on the basis of what sports team they support, or if they support one, or if they go to matches? Jesus, folks, grow up.

So the cops in NYC wanted their day in court- uh, you mean like both the Clinton's should have had before they were crucified by right-wing politicians and the gutter press over and over during his presidency with charges that were demonstrably false??

There are a certain group of folks that simply have an irrational hatred of the woman and simply start foaming at the mouth at the mere mention of her name. They need professional help.

You trying to maintain, Troll, that Senator Clinton is the only politician who lies, is self-serving, is insincere, or a champion of expediency? Christ, I thought those qualities were job requirements for all of 'em. Look at [sm]Armey or DeLay for instance!

Kendall, my husband says that Fire when ready Gridley thing. :-) He told me who Gridley was but now of course I can't remember.

The thing about Hillary is this... it's the thing about most women who say what's on their mind... some people are intimidated by her because she won't be bullied. Now, I'm all for people who won't be bullied. There don't seem to be quite enough of them. However, she has never come across as a personable individual, at least to me, anyway. She doesn't seem like someone I could be friends with, and it doesn't have anything to do with her Democratness. She just rubs me the wrong way, is all.

Laura Bush and Tipper Gore are both welcome to tea at my house anytime.

Now, that being said, I generally do believe it is rude behavior to boo someone. Maybe the people who did it felt like they had a good reason, but free speech is no excuse for poor manners.

Anything that doesn't fit into the naive, self-satisfied, comfortable fantasy world you've created for yourself or that conflicts with your carefully crafted 'reality' you'd simply label as the opinion of a biased observer and disregard, without- as you've repeatedly stated- feeling the need to consult factual material of any sort or to educate yourself about the point under discussion.

I'll give you an example Doug, but, I know you will find something wrong with it. As you must know, there is a bil in congress to make the security people at airports government employees. The republicans are holding it up, because, they want them to be civilian employees. Well, guess what? they ARE civilians, and they work for minimum wage, and some of them have been exposed as convicted felons! Armey stated on TV, that the reason the democrats want them to be Federal employees is because they would have to belong to a union that makes donations to the democrat party! What a crock! I worked for the govt. for many years, and I didnt belong to any union.

I only worked for the government for a couple of years, Kendall, and I didn't belong to a union either. But I don't think that is the main reason the Republicans object to them being federal employees. Armey is an ass, I agree. I think they favor strict federal oversight, but having the folks that do the checking employees of a privately owned company. Why? If they screw up, they could be more easily replaced. Even the whole company could be replaced if necessary. The key would be federal oversight, I think.

I have no idea what federal regulations are regarding employees that are unionized and those that are not. I'm sure Mick does, but I'm not sure that qualifies as a lie. I'm sure we will see, though.

By the way, Kendall, I'm sure you will be delighted to know in the fifth inning of the WS, the game is tied up!

Thanks for posting the link to the Hillary archive at NewsMax, Margo. I noticed in one of the articles there, they mentioned that the Hillary-getting-booed thing wasn't covered much in the media, which I'm not sure I buy, since I've read about it in several places now, but certainly, there are much more important issues to be covering in these times.

But boy, am I ever inclined to take most of what I see at NewsMax with a food-service-sized box of salt. Their tone is shrill, ideological, and unbalanced, even after September 11, where it seems to me we need to be just a smidge more unified than that.

If I ever go back to their website. After reading this hateful, unconscionable hatchet-job on John McCain, a genuine American hero, I don't know if I ever will. I used to go to websites like these under the maxim of "know thine enemy," to see just what kind of trash they're peddling, but after September 11, "thine enemy" has a rather different meaning. No American, except those in the White Power/White Patriot/Neonazi/Militia of Montana/Christian Identity/Timothy McVeigh fringe, is "the enemy" in the way that al-Qaida are. I don't care so much any more to read the words of conservatives who don't get that, and are still more concerned with their domestic "enemies" (read: all liberals, most Democrats, and anyone, like McCain, who doesn't hew to the party line on every issue) than with a very real, very murderous, very elusive, and very difficult external enemy. With lower Manhattan still a smoldering warzone, it strikes me, at the least, as a bit unpatriotic. I made the mistake of reading several of Ann Coulter's columns yesterday, and it's just too distressing and depressing, too divisive and harmful to American unity.

Sorry for veering into off-topic-rant territory like that, but I was positively seething after reading that article, along with the one that tore into McCain for suggesting that hey, you know, it might be a responsible thing to keep your guns in a locked cabinet (and I am both a liberal and pro-2nd-amendment and a gun owner, for the record). So...I wanted to vent.

Still, you have to admit that one of the most important skills a politician can have is the skill of being personable, making people like and want to work with him/her, etc. And I think most of us, whatever our personal politics, recognize that Hillary is lacking in these skills.

SDShad,

if you own a gun for home defense, what earthly good does it do to have it locked away in a cabinet. Do you really believe that the moke who breaks into your house in the middle of the night is going to wait for you to find the keys, open the cabinet, get out the gun and -if you follow the recommendations of some- remove the trigger lock, go to another locked cabinet, get out the ammunition, and load the gun?
If you do, you'll be a lot safer if you run to the bathroom, lock the door, and hope he won't break it down.
If, onthe other hand, you kep your gun(s) for sporting purposes, by all means keep them locked up. It lessens the chance of them being stolen in a daylight burglary.

Troll, check out the stats. The incidence of thefts from occupied houses is bugger all, nearly all burglary occurs when houses are empty. So if you want the criminals _not_ to be armed, the first stage is to stop gun shops from selling guns to criminals (background check with gun license), and the second stage is to prevent criminals from being able to steal one (easily, anyway).

If you bought a gun for home defence, and you _really_ thought you'd need it (like you happen to live in the middle of a gang-ridden city centre), then I'll grant you that. But if you're _really_ worried about self-protection, you'd be carrying the gun with you all the time, not putting it down anywhere, right? Stuck in a desk drawer upstairs is just as useless as locked away in a gun cabinet if someone breaks in while you're watching TV!

But in your average town, the odds are vanishing small that anyone would think of breaking into an occupied building, so the priority is preventing easy theft of weapons from unoccupied buildings. A gun-nut friend has a small arsenal in his basement, and the thought of that lot getting stolen by a casual thief is positively terrifying.

On a similar vein, do you also leave your car unlocked with the keys in the ignition, so that you can jump in and get away quickly if someone chases after you? Of course you don't, bcos it's too easy for anyone else to steal it. Ditto locking guns away - if a burglar just needs to break a window to steal your Uzi sub-machine-gun...

Okay, that was my "why, exactly, was it necessary to be insulting?" reply. Here's my serious reply:

That was pretty much the reaction in the anti-McCain screed on NewsMax, Troll. But they didn't even have the decency to make the exception for sporting-gun-owners that you do.

Our guns, in fact, are not in a cabinet. Haven't been able to afford a decent one yet, what with buying a new house this year and all. We plan to get one, but in terms of gun safety, it's not an immensely high priority for us, since it's just the two of us living here--no children around to make unlocked guns a large risk. We hide 'em when other people's children are around, and keep them unloaded, always, with the ammunition on a different floor of the house. Mind you, I don't have the most precise knowledge of our ammo's location right now, since we're still unpacking. I remember which box I put them in--but I can't say with certainty where the box is (he admits sheepishly).

But lemme tell you a little about where we live, and why we own guns. In our town, there's been something like four murders in the last 25 years. There's crime, yeah--there's crime everywhere--including burglaries, but armed intruders are about as common here as coelocanths. We own guns because...well, in large part because we inherited them, but also because Hypatia is a (currently inactive) hunter, and I want to learn to hunt. My need to defend my home with my firearms is virtually nil.

But that's not to say that defense isn't part of the motivation. And this gets into why I no longer favor limiting the citizenry's 2nd-Amendment rights to own firearms. It really crystallized for me in about the year or two leading into the Oklahoma City bombing. I was, at the time, fairly actively involved in anti-Holocaust-denial activity on Usenet, and the bizarre, eclectic mish-mash of reading you need to do in order to post in an informed manner against Nazis, skinheads, cranks, pseudo-scholars and various other assorted racists leads you into some very interesting territory.

One conclusion I reached fairly early on, from reading their own material, was that the White Power/Christian Identity/KKK/Aryan Nations/what-have-you movement was intricately linked with, and often was really the same movement as, the Patriot/Militia movement. Gotta remember, this was when Linda Thompson was organizing her big "march on Washington" that in the end never really materialized, where her followers were issuing veiled threats to make Congresscritters vote the way Linda wanted at gunpoint. Their rhetoric was militant, and it was clear that they considered themselves an army, bent on setting things right for God in a way that I think He'd have a hard time recognizing as "His" work.

It was equally clear that if they ever got the civil unrest (and probably civil war) that they clearly wished for (unlikely as that may have seemed, even then), because of my other activities, there was a chance, however small, that my name was on some dimwitted--but well-armed--loser's list of "Race Traitors Who Should Be Put Against the Wall When the Revolution Comes." And even if I wasn't, well, people who think, talk, act, and look like me would be their targets eventually, and the only hope that normal people--left, right, center, or indifferent--would have against the tyranny of their mob would be an armed citizenry. Hippies with guns, if necessary, but everyone else, too, anyone who opposed the Militia Movement's extremist agenda--the true people's militia, if you will. And so I came, reluctantly, to oppose anti-gun legislation.

And then Oklahoma City happened.

In the first few hours after the bombing, before McVeigh and Nichols were captured, and people were starting to harrass and attack anyone who looked vaguely Middle-Eastern in revenge, I felt like I was the only person in America (well, except Hyp), who was shouting at the TV, "it's not Arabs, you idiots! It's the Militias!" From the first moment, I knew it was someone just like McVeigh turned out to be.

Now, it'd be easy to say, in retrospect, that my reaction to the Militia Movement was, at the time, was in fact an overreaction--but given the terror they carried out in OKC, I'd still argue with you, a little. But reading their stuff, reading about what they wanted to implement and how they wanted to go about implementing it, those were kind of scary times, even before OKC, and they shaped me philosophically. In the years since, I've seen less need for being armed against them, but not a disappearance of that need. But all in all, the possibility of needing to keep a loaded gun in our bedroom at night seems even more remote than it did then--unless, say, there were an escaped, armed, and dangerous felon on the loose in the area of our town, in which case I'd do that without hesitation, until he was captured, since we live on the edge of town.

But, there is, in recent days, one nagging doubt. I have no doubt at all that Bin Laden is behind September 11, and we need to go after him--I've been as certain of it from the moment it happened as I was of Oklahoma City and the Militias. But, while it seems likely that the ultimately the Anthrax attack can be laid at his feet as well, I can't get rid of the nagging doubt in the back of my head that the Anthrax could be the opportunistic work of that shadowy internal movement whose face most of America has seen only in that of Timothy McVeigh.

Anyway, short version: unless the unlikely event of massive civil unrest coming to our sleepy South Dakota college town comes to pass, I am highly unlikely to ever need my guns for self-defense. I plan to get a cabinet, and once I have one, should I keep them in the cabinet, locked? Yes! Seems to me the only times to have your guns out of that cabinet would be: if you want to display them in a decorative way, in which case keep the ammo buried from prying little hands, or better, don't have ammo for decorative guns; if you live in an area where armed intrusion when you're in the house is a likelihood or a distinct possibility--in which case, seems to me it's likeliest under cover of darkeness, so keep the guns locked up when no one's around, or especially when only the kids are around (which in an area that dangrous probably shouldn't be happening anyway), and keep a gun within easy reach--loaded or unloaded with rounds nearby, your call--only during whatever hours you deem an armed intrusion a distinct enough possibility to warrant it.

There's no excuse, including home defense, for making it easy for children to gain unsupervised access to guns and ammunition. None. They aren't adults, don't have an adequate sense yet of their own mortality, and don't really understand the profound responsibility of gun safety until they're way past the point of being physically capable of grabbing the gun against your wishes and orders and doing something stupid with it.

But I don't want to turn this into a thread for us to disagree about gun control (since we don't), or to disagree about approaches to gun safety (where obviously we do). So, sorry for the long rant. Kind of covered more territory than what you were asking about, Troll, but hopefully it clarifies my feelings on gun ownership, gun safety, and 2nd Amendment rights.

No use in having guns for protection if they are locked away and unloaded. If you have kids in the house, it is simply a matter of teaching them to respect guns. Most accidents involve households where kids are not educated about guns. For all its vilification, the NRA has led the way in promoting gun safety. If people obey the laws and practice gun safety, crime and accidents would be nil and people would quit bitching about guns. It is as simple as that. The alternative is trying to forcibly disarm about 100 million pissed off Americans.

It's naive to believe that it's actually that simple. Again, Hyp and I have no children of our own. Our foster daughter, yeah, I would've trusted her with a loaded gun in the house, but I also had no reason to keep a loaded gun in the house.

But most of our friend's kids, I wouldn't trust 'em alone with a loaded SuperSoaker. They pay absolutely no attention, and damned if I can figure out if there's a single thing in the world they take seriously.

Shad, who grew up where most people (at least in the country, if not in town), had guns, but nobody was all weird and Militia-y and intruders-are-in-every-shadow-y about it. They just had them to hunt and to protect their livestock.

My name is James Lawrence Brady. I am sorry if that offends you. As for bad parenting, I don;t give a damn if bad parents own guns or not. I just don;t want to hear people whining when one of their kids offs themself because they weren't taught better.

Sorry, But I think you may see the irony of Jim Brady arguing for guns!!! And your attitude seems a little comical to me.

Leave your guns out!! Tell your kids not to play with them! They'll listen!! Children always obey their parents!!

Are you a troll or do you actually believe what you are saying? Does it matter? Better that parents don't whine because they did not leave deadly weapons unattended.

If I kid is taught to clearly understand what a gun can do, to never assume that a gun is unloaded, and to never handle them unless cleaning them or using them, then it is not a matter of obeying, it is a matter of their exercising common sense. Of course a little fear helps too. I knew growing up that my Father would kick my ass if he caught me playing with guns. Of course such philosophy is now considered archaic, but then again kids like me aren't the one's who light up their high school.

"Jim Brady", if you suckers don't yet realize it, is our resident jester--likes to tweak the noses of the those of you step on the soapbox and respond with self-righteous indignation--no, scratch that, he is a bitter, frustrated, and mentally imbalanced individual who gets a sick thrill out of taunted decent folks, oh, sorry, wrong again, he is a public service, provided for those who don't have anyone else to fight with--

I'm well aware of the fact that we were not alone in that war, but, it is the USA that is getting the static right now. Furthermore, we did not "ask for it" thats silly, we did set ourselves up for it though.

Hi all,

Boris: I don't have a problem with people believing that their city is the greatest in the world, I just have a problem with so many New Yorkers constantly telling me that in so many ways.

Frankly, it appears to me that it's like the person who always talks about sex is likely to be the one who aint gettin' any. New Yorkers might be afraid that the rest of the world will find out that they live in a city that just isn't so great after all.

My city is clean, absolutely full of trees, safe, fairly inexpensive in which to live, has a nice arts scene, tons of parks, no significant pollution and much of our taxes are paid by the rest of the world.

pax yall
