Dawn of new age

I am always his fan.

The greatest time, America had, in recent times, was when Bill Clinton was the President. Indeed, he turned over the US economy to GWB Jr. with a huge surplus. Today, the Fed and couple of dozen states are all in deficit and the US economy is in shambles.

Bill Clinton, when asked, "why the Philippines had not fulfilled its potential as a country despite people power and its rich history"?

He replied:

“Filipinos have done great all around the world. And I think that if (there’s) an economic model that was really good for Filipinos and families, I think you should try to get more Filipinos to come here, create a climate…We all need certain things to remind us of the big mental and emotional factors that determine a country’s greatness,” he said.

“One of the things you know for sure, you’re smart enough to do it. You have a huge population which is a positive, and you have massive natural resources. So I have the feeling that you’re at the dawn of a whole new age of your history and the fact it took you longer than Singapore shouldn’t surprise you because (they’re) a smaller country. The fact that it might take you a little longer to get in high gear than China shouldn’t surprise you because they’re a much more authoritarian country,” he explained.

“I wouldn’t worry about why you haven’t gotten there. I would worry about what kind of basic ideas that would be driven home to get you where you wanna go because you can do that. There’s no doubt in my mind about that,” Clinton said.


He is just amazing.....
