I bet he took a dump on Feb 12 1999 too, probably even got a bj or two. But he was impeached on Dec 19, 1998. He wasn't failed to be impeached on Dec 19, 1998 you dolt.

My hope is that both sides compromise, even just a little bit, Democrats need to cut deeper than they want to, Republicans need to realize that cuts alone will not solve our current problems

and do something for the country for a change, instead of just looking at the next election.

I have noticed your wording is changing, yes the house voted along partisan lines to impeach him, but that is not the end of an impeachment, as it involves both houses, and the impeachment failed in the senate which also voted along partisan lines,( the entire thing was partisan from the beginning ).

I have never argued that the house didn’t vote to impeach, heck they could vote to Impeach Obama tomorrow for anything they want to dream up even with no evidence whatsoever... but voting to impeach is not the end, the end of it is in the senate where impeachment is tried.

It is in the senate where an impeachment succeeds or fails.

I'm making my point well it seems. Arguing semantics is silly and tedious and serves no purpose except narcissistic supply. Everything I've said about Clinton's impeachment since Mona Lott started in on me is correct except I said "the House found him guilty" and brought it to the Senate. I should have said "the House found evidence of guilt" and brought it to the Senate.

I admitted that mistake much to your and certainly Mona's narcissistic delight. Now admit yours, the impeachment on Dec 19, 1998 was not a failure. If it had been, it wouldn't have been brought to the Senate where he was acquitted and thus not removed from office. The acquittal does not negate the impeachment. Bill Clinton was impeached.

Ask any trial lawyer anywhere if an acquittal is a success for a prosecutor... and they will tell you no, that is a failure.
I get it that you are not going to comprehend this... you can stop explaining that you don’t understand any time.

No you lost your point long long ago, an impeachment goes through both houses of congress, and the impeachment of Clinton failed on Feb 12 1999 when he was acquitted.

This isn’t an opinion, this is a fact

The impeachment failed, which is why he was not removed from office, If the impeachment had been successful he would have been removed from office.

Having the house vote for an impeachment is no big deal, you don’t need any evidence whatsoever, all you need is a vote. They did, it failed in the senate, and the impeachment dropped dead right there, and Clinton continued in office.

Impeachment was a failure
and that part that you like to pretend didnt happen, was the end of the story
The impeachment of Clinton was NOT a "failure". He WAS impeached ! If you deny that, then you're denying reality.

And that impeachment led him to ADMIT he committed perjury before teh grand jure, a FEDERAL CRIME, and he lost his license to practice law as a result. How many POTUSes do you know who were disbarred ???

When small to medium businesses are just staying afloat due to the economy, and are now required to pay for medical coverage for their employees, they will not be able to stay open. There goes more unemployment. If they don't put coverage on their employees, they will be fined for each person employed. To must to bare. Then you have big businesses, they might employ some 600 to 1000 employees and have insurance coverage right now. It will be cheaper on them to drop their coverage for their employees, pay the fines to the government, and make their employees go on Obama care, which will not be near the coverage they currently have. Not to mention, doctors and medical treatment will be dictated by the government to what will be acceptable. Just a small example obama care.
No business is required to pay for medical coverage for their employees. Where do you get these silly ideas? Let me guess.... Glenn Beck or Rush Windbag?

No dear. I hate to agree with FaFoxy, but he is correct. The House votes on articles of impeachment. Clinton was impeached by the House. Impeached does not mean removed from office. It means to bring formal charges.

I don't disagree with anything you said here aside from the vouchers. People given the choice will migrate towards better schools, with that migration that schools will be better funded and hire more and better teachers expanding their programs. Other schools will then have to compete or fail. When they fail, just like anything else, that void will be filled. Another school which is profiting from it's successful model, will expand into that void providing better education to those people as well.
The free market does work.
But I still think critical thinking is the key, we need to start teaching it again, and stop teaching regurgitation just to pass a test and make the school look good.
The problem with vouchers is that they'll not mean a thing for many who can't afford the balance of the price for that private school. That means the children of the poor get stuck with worse than they've already got.

Your last sentence is spot on.
