On last month's Fix;
  Since no Fix was posted, this section will just be an excuse for moi
to ramble.
Compare and contrast the Clinton policy towards Haiti and the Bush policy
towards Iraq.
  a) Iraq had the world's 3'rd or 4'th largest army (over 1 million men).
     Haiti has under 7,000.
  b) Iraq invaded another sovereign nation and was poised to control
     about 1/2 of the world's known oil reserves.
     Haiti's problems are internal and pose a threat to?
  c) Bush sought for and obtained Congressional approval, Clinton
     bypassed the Congress.
Clinton will make a speech tomorrow night (Sep. 15) and claim
  1. We must invade Haiti so that the U.S. is not seen as weak.
  2. If we don't prop up democracy in Haiti, other nations will fall.
  3. As U.S. citizens, we ought to stand for decency and democracy.
  1. The U.S. is not weak, Bill Clinton is. He has repeatedly rattled
     his saber in N. Korea, Haiti, Cuba and other places. American
     blood should not be spilt to save Bill's foreign policy credibility.
  2. Does the term "Domino Theory" sound familiar?
  3. Ok, let's invade (and save) Rwanda, Bosnia, Iraq, Iran, Ethiopia, 
     China, Vietnam, Cambodia, North Korea, ad infinatum, ad nauseum.
This week, Cuba's Fidel Castro voluntarily stopped the Cuban exodus to 
the US despite being denied his major goal of having the US lift its 30 year 
economic blockade against Cuba. Castro says he thinks Clinton doesn't have 
enough power to overturn  the blockade anyway, so he (Castro) will save his 
refugees as a  bargaining chip for the _next_ president. Since this clearly 
makes  Bill Clinton look weak (and by Bill's logic the US) I guess we just
might as well invade Cuba too (since it also meets the 2'nd
and 3'rd points).
  I know some of you will scream, "C'mon Steve, what about the evil
Ronald Reagen who invaded Grenada, or Bush's first year when he invaded
Panama? They didn't get Congressional approval for those, you right wing,
baby hating, racist, sexist, homophobic hypocrite!" To that charge I say;
  Grenada -- 200 U.S. medical students
  Panama  -- A popular canal, used by some for shipping
  Haiti   -- ??
  Also, even Congress recognizes that some crises arise too quickly for
a month long debate to occur. That is why we have the War Powers Act
which allows a President to enact the Armed forces for up to 90 (or 180,
somone can correct me here) days without Congressional approval. After that 
though, Congress must approve the money for continued military action. 
Clearly, the Haiti situation has been brewing  for over a year and 
Clinton cannot use any "imminent threat to  national interests" argument to 
justify his overuling of Congress. 
  Bottom line. Clinton is invading Haiti because almost one year ago he
sent a US naval ship there that was repulsed at the pier by about 50 knife
wielding thugs. Clinton is trying to prove that he still has a penis. I
hope the 2-3 thousand US civilians living there don't have to be harmed to
bolster Clinton's manhood. A little war also  tends to boost short term
presidential approval ratings, and that such a boost will come just before 
the November  elections is, of course, purely coincendental.
On life:
  Somewhere in a large midwestern hospital, a young girl comes into the 
emergency room with her 2 male homosexual friends. They were on their
way from Miami to see the largest shopping mall in the world and have a 
shopping spree. The girl complained to her  companions that she was "having
cramps". Half an hour after her arrival, she was a mother. She claimed she
was unaware of her pregnancy because of her obesity. Meanwhile, her
pals were down in the lobby, talking about their dilemma, when a middle
aged woman (overhearing them) offered to buy the child. Two hours later,
the men, mother, woman and baby girl left the hospital, never to be seen
there again. That's life in these United States.

Why then, given the similarities between Minnesota and Wisconsin, do we
Badgers continue to feel like Roger Clinton? Is it the fallout from
believing for years that Lake Woebegone did, in fact, exist and that your
children were more perfect than ours? Is it because Dayton-Hudson's
doesn't have a store on this side of the Mississippi? What is it that makes 
us feel inferior, even though many of us live in Superior? Was it the
arrogance revealed in the billboard that said "Brainpower State" that
you put up right across the river from Hudson? Just who was that sign
pointed at anyway?
It may seem that we're oversensitive, but you've got to understand
how much abuse we get from Chicagoans who feel that they've entered the
Rain Forest if they portage across to Beloit (and their bearers refuse
to go any further). 
We aren't inferior just because you edged us out on the SATs either, any
more than you are because South Dakota fed you their dust. It's well known
that such tests are skewed anyway. You tell me who the Minnesota Multiphasic
Personality Inventory is geared toward. We dress casual here, so leave the
Italian double breasted suits and off-the-shoulder dresses at home. On 
second thought, bring the dresses and their contents. The rule of thumb
in Wisconsin is "wear whatever is clean". We never say "come as you
are" because everyone does.  When we say dress, we mean wear clothes. We
like to visit the Twin Cities occasionally, but with so many matching sport 
coats and trousers  we assume someone died, which sort of puts a damper
on the evening. 
We don't have skyways so don't assume you can walk out of upper level
downtown windows, but in Madison, there's as fine a web of steam tunnels
as you could hope for and your welcome to them. In Milwaukee, there's a
network of alleys that will take you anywhere and up north, just get 
out on a snowmobile trail and flag somebody down. [In general, we find
that if we don't get out in the cold, our coats turn dull and we start to

and ask for it). From the world's largest ginseng fields, to the Garden
of Eden (Biblical scholar Rev. Slyke believes that when Adam and Eve
were sent packing, they came to Sparta). The world's largest talking
cow in Neillsville, the largest talking loon in Mercer, world's largest
6-pack in La Crosse and the world's largest M in Plattville. Built by
students of the UW School of Mines, it weighs over 400 tons and would
stomp any of the "Hollywood" letters. This is by no means an exhaustive
list, but goes to show how two can play at this world class game.
If there's a place at the counter, sit at it. If you're with a group
waiting for a table, don't block the cigarette machine. Don't ask to 
see a menu before you sit, it's not going to change by the time you do.
If you're here on business, remember we don't "take" lunch, we "eat" it

You can get fish cheeks locally, but the best fish boils come from 
Door County, Wisconsin, a fact that so many of you have discovered that
it's now difficult for a native to get into one. So you may want to 
head out to the deck with a kettle, 1/2 a cord of oak, 12 red potatoes,
1 1/2 pound onions, a pound of salt, 2-3 pounds of fish steaks, pound
of butter, lemon, and a couple of quarts of kerosene. Since this  is
potentially a fatal combination, if you get into trouble, call a Badger
and we'll talk you down. Better yet, come on over and we'll go out to the

We Need Guns Because we are Responsible for Ourselves
by Walter Williams, Aug. 31, Detroit Free Press
  [WW is a Econ Prof. at George Mason Univ., a _Washington Post_
  [syndicated columnist and  a member of the Cato Institute,
  [a (eek!) Libertarian think tank.
See if you can find the flaw in the following argument.
Assume we own ourselves. If we do, we have the right to protect ourselves
against those who would violate our self-ownership through agressive acts
such as murder, rape or theft. Historically, private acts of agression pale
compared to govt. sponsored agression such as slavery, purges and 
This lesson was not forgotten by the Founders. T. Jefferson observed,
  "When govt's fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear
   the govt., there is tyranny."
He added,
  "The strongest reason for the people to keep and bear arms is, as a  
   last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in govt."
Increasingly, Americans are coming to fear their govt. We fear the IRS,
which Congress has given the power to invade our privacy and require us to
obey regulations that neither we nor they understand. Not long ago, an
official with the increasingly terrorist EPA remarked that he longed for
the day when a call  from the EPA would instill as much fear in citizens
as a call from the IRS.
Then there is increasing fear of the Gestapo-like tactics of the BATF, 
the Fish and Wildlife Service, the DEA, and the Army Core of Engineers.
Congress sanctions these agencies to violate major parts of the Bill
of Rights and a derilect Supreme Court sits in silence or complicity.
George Mason could have just as easily been talking about today's anti-
gun movement when he said,
  "To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave
And who is behind this movement? Mostly, liberals in and out of Congress.
They're the educators who propagandize our children, environmentalists  who
would like to trespass on our property with impunity, and wicked busy
bodies in and out of govt.
They try to exploit constitutional ignorance by claiming that the 2'nd
Amendment applies only to govt. controlled "well regulated militias."
The framers knew that at best, govt. was a necessary evil, but its 
tendency is to become an intolerable one.  The 2'nd was written to give
us a _fighting_ chance.  With pious expressions, liberals ask, "Why would
anyone need an assault weapon? You can't hunt with it." They expect the
ignorant to believe that the framers gave us the 2'nd Amendment to hunt
deer and get a little target practice.
Before we surrender our guns, we should recall that history's most barbaric
people were also gun-ban advocates. Adolf Hitler sought to ban gun posession
by Jews. All over the post Civil War South, laws were passed to ban the
sale of guns to blacks. Hitler and the Ku Klux Klan weren't fighting crime.
They sought to prevent Jews and Blacks from defending themselves. Of course,
the legislation didn't say that. I know of no evil legislation written in
explicitly evil language, including the Brady Bill.

politically minded as you, (I basically feel like what is wrong

about the L.A. area!
  Well here's a good one I came across:
It's Those Little Gender Details That Get You
    by John Vorhaus, Special to the Times
  Here's my favorite tabloid headline of all time: "Angry Trucker
Fires Five Shots Into UFO!"
  Here's my favorite tabloid headline recently: "Sex-Change Bride
Used to Be a Man!"
  Now, unlike most of what I read in the supermarket checkout line
("Nixon Not Dead!" "Law of Gravity Repealed!" "Miracle Meditation
Diet Chants Away Pounds!"), this story actually happens to be true.
  Earlier this year, during an otherwise amicable divorce deposition,
a Palm Beach wife of 10 years surprised everyone in the courtroom
(not least of all her husband, I bet) by announcing that, uhm, well...
  She used to be a man.
  She was really delightfully casual about the whole thing.
  "All my life," she told the judge, "I felt that I was a female
trapped inside a male body. So I had a gender reassignment."
  Gender reassignment. She makes it sound so easy. Like changing from
Sprint to MCI. Except if you don't like the service they can't switch
you back for free.
  Still, I can relate. After all, for most of my life I've felt like
I was a power forward trapped inside the body of a divinity student.
Or a classical violinist trapped inside the body of a kazoo master. 
Can I get surgery for that? And will my health insurance cover it?
(Ha! Like I've got health insurance.)
  Look, we all know divorce brings out all sorts of guilty secrets.
Usually, of course, it's such stuff as "I've always hated your meat-
loaf," or "Sometimes when you're asleep, I count your nose hairs."
  You almost never hear your spouse say, "I was in your high school
gym class, dear." At least you hope you don't.
  And don't you just wonder how she kept her husband in the dark so long?
I mean, I can vaguely imagine it in a one-night stand. People get drunk,
things happen...
  But after 10 years of his-and-his hand towels, even the densest
husband shouls start to get a clue that his wife has been (how can I
put this delicately?) retrofitted. This guys not winning any awards
for attention to detail.
  Maybe I'm being too harsh. After all, if women can fake interest in
your golf game, they can presumably fake anything.
  As a public service, then, here are the Eight Warning Signs That Your
Wife Might Be A Man:
  1.Bridal registry at Pep Boys.
  2. Doesn't make you channel-surf past wrestling.
  3. Winces at the mention of John Wayne Bobbitt.
  4. Doesn't care that Bambi's mother died.
  5. Mixes whites and colors in the wash. Has the same blank look as
     you when everything comes out gray.
  6. Can't program a VCR.
  7. Thinks Hillary Clinton is a righteous babe.
  8. Rewrote your wedding vows to read, "Do you take this person..."
  This is not, of course, the first time a man's been so badly fooled.
A few years back a British diplomat in Beijing had an affair with a 
Chinese opera star who was not only a man masquerading as a women, but
a spy to boot.
  Talk about your deep cover.
  Nor do men have a monopoly on stupidity. (Although, God knows, we 
do press our natural advantage.)
  Every now and then you hear about a women who gave birth without
even knowing she was pregnant.
  Talk about inattention to detail.
  Meanwhile, back in Palm Beach, the outraged husband has filed a 
million-dollar fraud lawsuit against his future former wife.
Not sure I'd go that route, million-dollar payouts notwithstanding.
When you've been fooled that badly, perhaps the less said the better.
Governor Wilson says our illegal alien problem is so big that it should
be considered an invasion. He wants the Federal government to treat it
as such and increase our federal aid. They certainly contribute to our
unemployment problem, but not too many of the rest of us are willing to
work for thirty dollars a day.
  Anyway, I thought it was time I contributed something to your News,
so excuse all the typos (I'm the one finger variety of typist!) I find
myself still homesick for good old Michigan. Don't see too many of 
those midwest values out here in glitzy L.A. And I used to think I
was so I find I'm becoming...oh no...A Redneck!
Hope things are going well for you..were all doing fine.

1. SPOKANE, Sep 23: Tom Foley's troubled bid for re-election just received
another blow: A post-primary poll shows Foley trailing by nearly 20
     A mere 39 percent of voters say they will support Foley in November.
An overwhelming 58 percent are committed to vote against him.  And a
surprisingly small number - only 3 percent - remain undecided.
     "The poll's results refute Foley's own excuses for his poor showing in
the primary election," says Richard Hartman, spokesman for Reform Congress
94, a Spokane citizen's group whose "De-Foley-ate Project" is leading the
fight against Foley.  "Foley has been attempting to explain away that 35
percent by suggesting that Democratic voters avoided the primary.  Clearly,
that was not the case."
     Hartman also feels the small undecided vote is significant.  "Foley's
record is clear," he says.  "Foley has taken a stand against the people. 
Now the people are taking a stand against Foley."
     According to Hartman, Foley's slight gain of four points from
Tuesday's primary can be attributed to crossover votes from discouraged
backers of defeated Republican candidates.  "There's always some emotional
letdown," says Hartman.  But he predicts that "By November, everyone will
refocus on real goal: Defeating Foley."
     Foley's dismal prospects were confirmed by additional analysis of poll
results.  When split across male-female lines, only 41 percent of women and
an even lower 38 percent of men said they could support Foley.
     "No matter how the numbers were run, Foley's support never varied by
more than two points," Hartman notes.  "That confirms the poll's accuracy -
and commitment against Foley." The poll, commissioned by Spokane ABC
affiliate KHQ-TV, queried over 500 likely voters in Washington State's
Fifth District.  Additional information regarding the poll may be obtained
from  KHQ-TV in Spokane at 509-448-6000.

the city subways TOPLESS. Yes, you read that right. About two years
ago, representatives from the local  NOW chapter sued for the right
to attend city parks topless, claiming that it was discriminatory for
men to be allowed to do so but not women. Similar reasoning was applied 
by NOW to win this case (although I personally have yet to see a topless
man on the NY subway).  An NYPD spokesperson  said that police will
still arrest topless women if "they are using their breasts to incite
public unrest".

Reno: Employers Can Weigh Racial Diversity In Making Layoffs 
WASHINGTON (Reuter) - Attorney General Janet Reno said Thursday that 
employers should be allowed to consider racial diversity when laying 
off workers and defended the Justice Department's switch in a discrimination 
case. ``We believe ... it is important to make clear that diversity should 
be a factor that employers can consider in developing voluntary affirmative 
action plans," she said at her weekly news briefing. 
The Justice Department Tuesday filed court papers arguing that an employer 
should be free to use racial diversity as a determining factor in deciding 
between two employees with the same qualifications and seniority. 
Under the Bush administration, the Justice Department had supported a 
discrimination lawsuit brought by a white high school teacher in New 
Jersey who was laid off in 1989 so that a black teacher could be retained. 
But in the court papers filed with a federal appeals court in Philadelphia, 
the Justice Department took the unusual step of switching sides and now 
supports the school board in the case. 
``I approved the position taken in the brief that we have filed," Reno said, 
adding that the Justice Department also had "regular consultations" on the 
issue and had notified the White House. 
``I consulted with the solicitor general to make sure that there was an 
appropriate authority for our taking our action, and that it was done in a 
proper and ethical manner," she said.  Reno said the department decided to 
switch sides after the case was brought to the attention of Assistant 
Attorney General Deval Patrick, who heads the civils rights division. 
2. Sep. 21: Professional leftist whiner ... AHEM  Unbiased journalist Daniel
Shore of NPR just performed a eulogy for the Health Care Plan. It seems
what with Haiti and all, Congress just won't find time to pass health
reform this year. This despite the 'fact' that Sen. Majority Leader
Mitchell (Dem, Maine) has a bill that he thinks will pass and will
        "guarantee coverage for 94% of all Americans"
Now let's see. The 1990 census said we had about 275 Million souls in
this country. Ninety-four percent of them would be about 258.5 million.
        275 - 258.5 = 16.5 million left uncovered
Billary's estimates of those "who live in a state of permanent crisis"
range from 35-63 million (depending upon how hard Bill bites his lower 
lip). That means the Mitchell plan would cover 47% of these people at 
best and 26% at worst, this after socializing 1/7 (14%) of the nation's 
economy.  Somehow, Daniel Shore neglected to mention this.
3. NBR, Sep. 26: Sen. Majority Leader G. Mitchell officially declared
health reform dead for the year today and, predictably, blamed the
  "They may be a minority, but they have a veto, and they used it",
  said Mitchell in a press conference.

4. Sep.29: S. 349, the Lobbying and Disclosure Act, cleared a senate
subcommittee vote today and will go onto the floor of the Senate
next week for a full vote. What is S. 349? Basically, it will affect
individuals or groups who spend over 10% of their time (and it is not
clear how this number will be calculated) or $2500 talking to Congress 
people. They will be required to make a full disclosure to the newly
created Office of Lobbbying and Public Disclosure.  The required info.
will include;
  - who did you talk to, on what topics and why
  - who works with you, their address and phone number
  - how much money did you spend for each congressional meeting and how
    did you spend it
  It is not clear from the language of the bill what this info will be
used for, but interestingly, the Office of Lobbying and Public Disclosure
will report soley to the President. Failure to comply will result in
large, but as of yet undefined, fines.
