The Results of the Real Legacy of Bill Clinton's Presidency

 

About six years ago when our son was a sophomore in a special education class in a New Jersey high school, one of the jocks there created a Web site he called "Sucks for You." On the site this liberal-progressive student had taken a picture of my son and labeled him the site's "Loser of the Month," the text calling him a painted-face monkey. The boy had also posted pictures on the Web of the high school restroom with his "Sucks for You" URL written all over the walls.

We could have sued the student, a junior, but we didn't, the principal promising the boy would apologize to our son and our family. He never did. We called the local newspaper, one of the largest in New Jersey, which in turn decided to run a story on the high school's Web bully. The high school principal was not happy we had called the newspaper, but we didn't trust the administration to come clean, either.

The site was taken down, yet the junior was never expelled for damaging another student's image or for defacing school property. He only received study hall "ice" for a week, again your remembering he was a popular jock with the school's administration.

But it didn't end there as other students called our son "Loser," with his being struck in the head with a screwdriver one night while walking home from work via a passing car, students shouting "Loser."

About a month later the junior went at it again, putting up another site, this one thanking Bill Clinton for the student's right to post whatever he wanted to the Internet. With that, the new site had over 20 direct links to hardcore XXX porn, some of the sites showing vegetables coming out of young girl's vaginas.

There was also a direct link to a streaming video of a teenage African-American boy having intercourse with a Caucasian teenage girl, the video camera up close up and personal as they went at it.

One of my son's friends had been so angry, fearing that he would be the next "Loser of the Month" and that there was no consequences for the junior's actions, he decided to put up a site on his own to make it look like the junior had posted it, this new one threatening an upcoming school dance.

It caused an uproar, with even the FBI investigating, catching the boy. He would later find himself in jail for six months while losing a scholarship to college that year. We told the young man if he had only talked with us, we would have told the act was only going to come back and bite him, instead of the one he wanted to make an example of.

We had called the newspaper again to inform them of the new Web site put up by the junior, this one with teenagers being involved with porn and stuff you find at dinner on your dining room table. But the columnist only laughed and said, "The ACLU says he can do that."

We don't know what happened to the junior, maybe a Congressman or working as an administrator on MySpace today, while our son has completed a tour in Afghanistan with the U.S. Marines.

But now let's move forward to today June 2006 and a story we read on AOL. Now you can discover where this offensive freedom has advanced to along with the level of abuse within our public school systems. Clinton had foreshadowed this in his book about his affair with an intern, writing, "I did it because I could."

The headline on AOL read:

 

Teacher's Arrest Raises Questions About Law
Former Miss Texas Contestant Allegedly Had Sex With 18-Year-Old Student

Part of the copy read:

DALLAS (June 11) - The arrest of a high school teacher for allegedly having sex with an 18-year-old student has raised questions about the age constraints of the state's three-year-old law criminalizing student-teacher sexual relationships.

Amy McElhenney, 25, was arrested May 25 and charged with having an improper relationship with a student. The Spanish teacher and former Miss Texas contestant faces up to 20 years in prison.

But some lawmakers say the Hebron High School student's status as a legal adult should exempt McElhenney from the felony charge.

State Rep. Helen Giddings, D-Dallas, wrote the Texas law in 2003 that criminalizes sex between educators and students. But she said she wanted the law to apply only to students 17 and younger - uncomfortable with making sex between two legal, consenting adults a felony.

"I feel differently about 17-year-olds than I do about 18-year-olds," Giddings said. "I don't necessarily believe the penalty for the two should necessarily be the same." . . . read more

 

Then AOL asked the question in a poll on the same page, "Should the felony charge be dropped since the student was 18?"

The results of the poll were not only stunning, but chilling from what O'Reilly calls his folks. Here are the actual results from a capture video of the Web page of the voting of 373, 887 AOL members, which is over a quarter of a million people.

So what was the Clinton Legacy?

You can read it and weep in the above poll. Your children in America's public schools will not only have to deal with gang violence, bullies, drugs, administered rape drugs, and STDs, but now advances from any one of their teachers.

Are we overreacting? Why not read the following and you decide:

Did you know that some judges do not consider statutory rape a crime?

When 43-year-old teacher Pamela Diehl-Moore tearfully pleaded guilty to having sex with a 13-year-old male student, New Jersey Superior Court Judge Bruce A. Gaeta sentenced her to probation, saying: "I really don't see the harm that was done here and certainly society doesn't need to be worried. I do not believe she is a sexual predator. It's just something between two people that clicked beyond the teacher-student relationship. … And don't forget, this was mutual consent "

Did you know that many of the offending teachers don't see anything wrong with what they're doing, and that some actually end up being rewarded for their behavior?

Mary Kay Letourneau, after serving time in prison for "child rape," got a $200,000 advance on a book deal (titled "Only One Crime, Love"), had a TV movie made about her life, and received a reported $750,000 from a tabloid TV show for the video footage of her 2004 wedding to the schoolboy she had seduced years earlier.

Do you know how prevalent teacher sexual exploitation of students actually is, according to experts?

According to a major 2004 study commissioned by the U.S. Department of Education – by far the most in-depth investigation to date – millions of children might be victims of sexual misconduct by teachers or other public school employees. In fact, says the study's author, Charol Shakeshaft, professor of educational administration at Hofstra University in Hempstead, N.Y., the figures suggest "the physical sexual abuse of students in schools is likely more than 100 times the abuse by priests."

Remember during the forming of the Clinton Legacy, the Democrats had said it was only about sex? Well it wasn't quite that simple, was it? Ask any 13-year old student who has been sexually abused by his teacher, who then gets away with it. That is if the student will even talk with you or that it ever happened.

I am now convinced the title of a new book was right. The Democrats are the party of death . . . to a nation, its future citizens, and its uniqueness in the world. So we want to congratulate Bill Clinton just as the junior student had done on his "Sucks for You" Web site:

"Thank you Bill Clinton. But also to Ruth Bader Ginsburg of the Supreme Court of the Land, for helping to make sodomy legal. Now kids can be victims of not only pedophile teachers, but gay ones, too." - Webmaster
