[URL]http://dailynews.yahoo.com/h/ap/20010517/wl/poland_clinton_2.html[/URL] WARSAW, Poland (AP) - Former President Clinton (news - web sites) was jeered by anti-globalization protesters and hit by an egg Thursday while visiting Poland's capital as part of a European speaking tour. The egg struck Clinton's sleeve as he walked through Warsaw's Old Town district. Police detained a 19-year-old man. ``The president laughed at the matter, saying, 'It's good for young people to be angry about something,''' spokeswoman Jennifer Palmeri said. He was not injured. The incident came one day after Deputy Prime Minister John Prescott was targeted by an egg-throwing heckler in Wales. The British politician's response, however, was less mild. He punched the man in the face. About 150 young Poles protested outside the hotel where Clinton was giving an address on globalization to business people. Some of the demonstrators held banners reading ``Globalization kills our planet'' and ``Yes to people, no to profit.'' The former president generally is a popular figure among Poles and got warm receptions in 1994, when he addressed Poland's parliament, and in 1997, when he spoke to 10,000 people in Warsaw's Royal Square.

I wonder if it was an assault-egg or one of the sporter versions?

It was probably some anarchist punk with a beef against America instead of someone who dislikes Clinton for who he is. BTW, have you seen the clip of Bill Gates getting a cream pie in the face? He cringed and cowered like a wimp, kind of felt sorry for him until I remembered how much money he has. [url]http://www.bitstorm.org/gates/creamedgates.mpg[/url]

Know what the kicker here is??? These clowns that are protesting Clinton over on his European Big Adventure (you KNOW he's getting like MEGA-laid over there - pardon my French) are "anti -capitalists." They are protesting the MOST anti-capitalist president America has ever had. This either means that even Clinton is too capitalist for those Europena fricks, or they are using a little reverse psychology to clean up Clintons image. For my money, a frigging 3,000 psi pressure washer spraying bleach and boraxo on Clinton's more sensitive parts couldn't clean up his image. He ain't dirty - he's the DIRT itself.

What sand pile has your head been buried in for the last 8 years????? He sued Microsoft for making a profit. he sued the tobacco industry cuz he couldn;t get the cigarette tax increases he wanted thru Congress. He sued the mom and pop gun makers cuz he didn't like them. he raised corporate taxes to their highest levels EVER ('cept maybe during WWII) He put endless reams of regulation on all industries. Name a business, name an industry, and Clinton did something to punish them solely for being in existence. He's anti-business, and therefore anti-capitalist. He is AGAINST capitalism.

Clinton is a socialist, supporting government control over all business'. Capitalism promotes free trade and minimal government controls/regulations. Sorta wondering who sponcered this meeting? The UN, tin hat time.

My thoughts exactly! But really, what if it WAS a grenade? Talk about poor security, BUSH had better stay out of Poland. As we speak, top Jew is upstairs in the building. Former Israel PM is on the 10th floor of my building and there are about 12 cops just outside my door about 10' away, noisy bastards, sarcastic too. The Israeli SS are much more intense looking with their dark glasses and metalic briefcases, no doubt with MP5K's and mini-UZI's in them!
