Ross Perot, RIP

He died at 89 after a five month fight with luekemia.

In terms of his political legacy -- did he win in the end?

And Open Thread.

I just watched this from dri in the sidebar: Watch an NPC's programming go into Blue Screen of Death mode in real-time. And then the NPC's fellow NPCs wolfpack up to intimidate someone asking questions.

Antifa and related groups seems to be borrowing Hamas' tactics, recruiting dead-end loser half-wits and imbeciles and lunatics.

70 Met him at the SOLIC Banquet in '90 ('91?), when Perot was guest of honor. This is after he did so much for wounded servicemen in Panama. My bet is everyone in the room was sitting there thinking....How can I work for this guy?

Neat thing about military formals, all guests are expected to greet the guest of honor. So me and another jr. off. felt perfectly within our right to ease up to General Gray, Commandant of the Marine Corps, and intrude. "Excuse us General, could we please cut in and greet our guest...?" and just like that, the Marine 4-star gave way. Perot was special back then.

On his radio show today, Rush said he thought it had to do with American POWs being identified as alive during Reagan's admin, and VP Bush was tasked to coordinate a rescue attempt "off the books" so the military wouldn't have to pay/account for it. [Makes no sense in hindsight since there are black budgets for that kind of thing -- but maybe they wanted to make sure it didn't trace back to the military/administration.]

Anyway, Rush said they asked Perot to finance it (knowing his interest in POWs) and Perot insisted on being part of the planning, but they said "No" and he was quite offended by the fact that they wanted his money only.

Posted by: rickl at July 09, 2019 09:01 PM (sdi6R)

If true, and I think it probably is, then Perot was the forerunner of Let It Burn.

I mean that in a good way. Perhaps the exposure of the globalists for who and what they are was inevitable, and in truth it took another 8 years of another Bush and then 8 of Obama after him for enough to wake up and be ready to elect Trump. But having the flip flop of Clinton/Bush/Obama and seeing the GOP refuse to fight when they had the power and go along while they didn't was illuminating.

366 Oh, and I distinctly remember Bush in the 2000 debate blasting Al Gore because Arabs were being unfairly scrutinized at airports.

Supposedly it was a play for Michigan's Arab population, but that one really didn't age well.

I'm not a Trump-worshiper, but I do find it ironic that Trump as basically an entertainer was talking about the dangers of Bin Laden in his book before 9/11 while Bush was focusing on Arabs not getting hassled at airports.

Lolololol. I have a center-left friend at work and sometimes we talk politics. He once asked me about something or other that some politician was planning and asked me why I objected. I have used a lot of arguments in the past - centralization of power, local decision-making, constitutionalism, states' rights, etc. - and it never really swayed him.

That time I simply replied, "Because I do not believe that government is essentially a force for good. Government is necessary and important but should be extremely limited to prevent abuse." It seemed to get through to him. He seems more open now.

Of course, it could be how batshit crazy the Dems have gone over the past few years. It's probably that, but I prefer to take the credit, so...

386 On his radio show today, Rush said he thought it had to do with American POWs being identified as alive during Reagan's admin, and VP Bush was tasked to coordinate a rescue attempt "off the books" so the military wouldn't have to pay/account for it. [Makes no sense in hindsight since there are black budgets for that kind of thing -- but maybe they wanted to make sure it didn't trace back to the military/administration.]

Anyway, Rush said they asked Perot to finance it (knowing his interest in POWs) and Perot insisted on being part of the planning, but they said "No" and he was quite offended by the fact that they wanted his money only.

I actually find that a very adult opinion, and although I may not share it completely, encourage that kind of balanced take.

I'm settling in the camp that Perot was right about *some* protectionism, although I'm not a protectionist, per se. Trump has a penchant for it, and we'll see how good it does. I'm at least willing to see how it goes.

Perot did some good things, but he could almost join the Democrat 2020 clown car with his redistributionist, we-ought-to-pay-the-world-more, pro-gay, pro-government-paid-abortions, pro-VAT Tax, pro-Medicare-For-All stances in the 1990s(!)

Perot was right about NAFTA. He was wrong about a lot of other things.

But I don't think Trump's tariffs are really protectionism. He isn't really using them to defend specific industries (though you could make a compelling argument about steel), but as a policy cudgel to use against economic bad actors. Tariffs all look alike at the end of the day, but there is a big difference between tariffs like "your cars are 20% cheaper than my cars, so I'm slapping on a tariff to make the price the same and defend my industry" and "you're a cheating scoundrel I'm slapping a general tariff on you until you clean up your behavior because I'm tired of paying for your free ride."

Trump is doing a lot more of the latter than the former. And if it prevents war over these issues, then the added costs are worth paying.

468 You had to love Perot's VP candidate at the time, Admiral James Stockdale. That one debate was hilarious. "Who am I? Why am I here?"


Of course he was mocked mercilessly by the MSM for that ...

Posted by: ShainS -- There are but two Parties now: Traitors and Patriots at July 09, 2019 08:49 PM (WqPYg)

From what I've read, he was much more of an inspiration to his fellow POWs than McCain was.
Posted by: rickl

Admiral Stockdale was one of the noblest men to ever put on the Navy's uniform. As senior POW in N. Viet Nam, he was ruthlessly tortured.
He stood up for his men, and never used anything about being a POW as an excuse for something. His hearing was permanently impaired. Which is why he was fiddling with his hearing aids at the VP debate. And the crowd laughed at him.

I remember the day he died, and some local radio wag was mocking him. I was about this close to going down there and beating that guy with an axe.

Don't we basically already have that with MediCaid?

When was the last time any Republican talked about getting rid of MediCaid?

I think Perot was wrong about a lot of things, but this idea that Republicans were doing anything but just conning us is where I part ways.

Bush Sr gave us the Americans with Disabilities Act that has been an absolute boondoggle, but I guess he was the real conservative because he never talked about health care like Perot did where he said we were spending government money in stupid ways on health care

Perot also had a lot of conservative positions, favored school vouchers, getting tough on crime, balancing the budget/deficit, privatizing social security, not signing foreign treaties that give away our soverignty, etc.

What conservative victory did Bush Sr ever have?

His one conservative SC pick was offset by liberal Souter that he bungled .

483 And does nobody remember how much Perot tanked himself when he hand-waved away any specifics about his economic goals by saying that there was an endless supply of plans already formulated in D.C. and he would rely on that?

Because that would be a great thing - just look at the F-35 program or the Littoral Combat vessels. Plans, plans, and more plans.

Posted by: A. Pendragon at July 09, 2019 10:24 PM (lJMCC)

484 So, what did we learn here? That Ross Perot was, in fact, finally able to finish, and that there seems to be a thriving underground maple syrup economy.

At this point would be where the Tears For Fears music kicks in and John Bender does the fist pump before exiting stage right.

RP was dead on about the intended effects of NAFTA. It destroyed our
manufacturing sector and put millions of formerly upwardly mobile
Americans out of work. What a way to eliminate your political opposition
with the stroke of a pen.

I hope BJ Cliton dies a slow, painful
death as his brain slowly turns into Swiss cheese from the myriad STD's
he's contracted. I hate that bastard with the heat of a thousand suns
for what he did to me and all the other innocent Americans just because
he could.

DIAF, EABOD, and ESAD, you fucking asshole.
