"HARVARD TRAINED" & "YALE TRAINED"
In the recently released book, *Bordering on Chaos: Guerrillas,
Stockbrokers, Politicians, and Mexico's Road to Prosperity* by
Andres Oppenheimer, we learn that former Mexican President Carlos
Salinas was so often referred to as "the Harvard trained Salinas"
that he eventually became nicknamed "Harvard Trained Salinas".
U.S. President Bill Clinton is a Yale alumnus, so he could be
called "Yale Trained Clinton".
"Harvard Trained Salinas" was doing some (I guess) brilliant
things when he was president of Mexico. They must have been
brilliant, because I, "Northern Illinois University Trained
Redman", fail to understand them.
For example, the Mexican state of Chiapas is so impoverished, it
is known as "Mexico's basement" -- in other words it is kept
hidden how backward it is. The majority of its people are poor,
Indian peasants. The women must walk for hours every day, just
so their families can have water and firewood. Their shacks are
lucky to have a tin roof.
So what does Harvard Trained and his government do? Help them
get electricity and running water? No, Harvard Trained and
upper-crust chums decide to get them 3700 basketball courts! The
Chiapas Indians, thanks to Harvard Trained, then put together
12,000 basketball teams. They still don't have shoes and their
average height is about 5 feet 3 inches tall -- but hey: at
least after a hard day of toting firewood they can relax and
shoot some hoops!
Harvard Trained also caused an $11 million, world class opera
house to be built in Chiapas. While it was being built, right
next door, two homeless Indian children died of exposure. It
seems the nights grow cold in Chiapas.
"Yale Trained Clinton" is somebody we Americans know plenty about
already, so I won't go into that here. One thing though: Yale
Trained apparently has never, ever, worked at a real job. It
seems Yale Trained just went right from Yale to politics, without
ever getting his hands dirty.
Craig Livingstone, designated fall guy for Yale Trained and the
gang, *has* actually worked at a real job. We hear that he has,
in the past, worked as a (how gross and common) "bouncer". (Uff!
Whatever that is. I hope he's washed his hands.) Representative
Tom Lantos of California, obviously a "team player" for whom
there is no such thing as "stooping too low", went so far as to
hint that the honorable thing would be for Livingstone to go blow
his brains out. According to Congressman Lantos, Admiral Boorda,
after relatively minor infractions, nonetheless saw fit to "fall
on his sword" and, by implication because Livingstone's acts were
apparently so much worse, the least that Livingstone ought to do
would be likewise.
Sickening also to see is the "watchdog press" now going into a
"feeding frenzy" around Livingstone. Obviously this bunch of
sharks have been sent by their Lords and Masters to "rip him to
shreds." Too bad the "watchdog press" in America still hasn't
sniffed out the *real* stories such as (a) strange death of
Vincent Foster, (b) U.S. government butchers children near Waco,
Texas, and (c) Gun- and drug-running by CIA, especially at Mena,
Arkansas during the 1980s.
Most sickening of all is my fellow countrymen, who, by and large,
choose not to see.
