Above the Law:

If the children of this generation learn nothing else, they sure will catch one thing. If you want to get by with murder--just become president of the United States and you can live above the law.

Friday, as she sat at home taking care of her two kids, Paula Jones went to the mailbox, like she has every other day. This day would prove to be different. This is to be the day that Bill Clinton--already at the bottom of the slime pit, digs his way lower still. This is the day he plays his trump card and sicks the dreaded Internal Revenue Service on the lowly little housewife and mother of two, who has had the gall to defy him and his power.

Can you imagine going to the mailbox and opening the letter that informs you to get your financial records together because you are being audited by the government? I donít know about you, but I keep very careful records--practically every McDonalds receipt from business trips, but I still would not want to receive that letter. The saddest thing about it is that it wonít matter whether Mrs. Jones and her husband, Stephen, are guilty of anything or not. Their lives will never be the same. They stand to lose everything they own and there will be precious little they can do about it.

President Gerald R. Ford once said, "The American wage earner and the American housewife are a lot better economists than most economists care to admit. They know that a government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take from you everything you have."

The IRS is one government institution many believe to be simply unconstitutional. Why should that stop anything though? Since FDR we havenít really lived according to the Constitution. The Supreme Court has all power now. It matters little these days what the Constitution actually says--only what the Supreme Court says it means. Often their "interpretation" flies in the face of relevant statements made by the Founding Fathers and earlier Supreme Court rulings, but they don't care. They hand down a "landmark" decision anyway.

The IRS is just another acronym that stands for just another government agency out of control. We have the BATF, FBI, CIA, DEA, and now even the MJTF. Some of these only take your assets and make your life miserable. Others actually take your life. Paula Jones is certainly lucky that Mr. Clinton has only sent the IRS after her instead of the FBI or the BATF. It could be worse. At least when the audit is over she will still be alive. The FBI isnít above shooting or burning women and children alive (remember Vicki Weaver, Waco, and that little boy in Texas recently?)

Paula Jones has gone and done it now. One day she refuses the $700,000.00 and the next day she is served notice that she will be audited. Is it just me or isnít that just such a coincidence? I am not really sure what Paula Jones wants, but it seems clear to me it isnít money. As I understand the law, Mr. Clinton can not be forced to apologize for the advances he made toward her and she has refused a rather large monetary settlement. I donít know what it is that she wants, but I sure hope she gets it. Either way, her life will never be the same once she tangles with the IRS.

My wife constantly warns me that "our" audit is coming if I continue to speak out against this president. The only thing that keeps me safe is that I donít think he reads "The Other Side of the News"--yet anyway!

Whoever would have thought that Bill Clinton would be cast to star in the sequel to the 1988 Warner Brothers Steven Seagal movie, "Above the Law?" Bill Clinton knows no shame and he truly is "above the law."

Reuterís reports that, "the White House said Monday there was no evidence any of its officials had a hand in the decision by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to audit Paula Jones, who has sued President Clinton for sexual harassment." Of course there is no evidence. It either has already been, or soon will be shredded. I wish I had bought stock in the shredder industry the day after Clinton was elected president. I would be a millionaire today. Oh well, hindsight is always so much better than foresight.

Susan Carpenter McMillan, advisor to Paula Jones, Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press" program was asked if she believed the White House was involved. McMillan said, "Would I ever go on national TV and accuse President Clinton of using the IRS to harass his detractors? ... I would never be so blunt." Smart lady. She doesnít want to be audited. Paula Jones and her husband live on about $40,000 a year and probably don't have a whole lot the government can take away. "Advisors" probably make a bit more than $40,000 a year, so she has more to lose.
