That's a lot of rambling and babbling to get to your "President Bush the Lesser" insult. Is vitriol your best writing?
So the Effexor SR is what causes your physical imbalance? Not sure anyone expressed concern about that.
discussion of another member's grammatical difficulty.
First. American men's names Benjamin, Thomas mostly as Tom, Richard and ****, John, James, Robert, Frank rather than Francis (sorry Mr. Sinatra)
David's seem evenly divided, Roger's tend to be English except for ours here
English Names Jude (!?), Daniel, Douglas (but never Doug, possibly Duggie if you live in Scotland,) Jeremy, Geoffrey, Rowan, Dudley, Julian, Ian or Iain, same name, Hugh or Huw and Gareth if you're Welsh.
American Names For Women: Diane, Sarah, Pat more than Patricia, Martha if you're a Plimpton, Jane, Jean, Catherine plus a younger cadre of Lindsays and Mary-Elizabeth's usually shortend Helens used to be around in my Mother's day, but I don't know any AmeriCanadian ones now. Donna.
British names: Helena, Diana, Philippa, Phyllida, Emma, (mother and daughter), Saskia, Charlotte, Nicola, Elspeth and Zoe. Mind you if you lived in Essex and East London it was all Tracie's and Sharon's and Sheila's. Davida's such a clumsy name and Nigella's though there aren't that many of them occurred because her father Nigel Lawson was a Tory Chancellor of the Exchequer. Davida seems such an unfortunate name, and so many women's names are just men's names with an -a on the end. Roberta, Alana, Philippa, Patricia. Besides Sheila and Sharon and Tracy I worked with a Nicola and a Tamsin which is a late 19th Century rural dialect version of Thomasina. Nicola and Tamsin were Pharmacists and had been to University, the others had not and were therefore of a different class. I was particularly annoying (yes, yes, and we're not surprised) because I talked posh, had been to University, and yet was working at a very blue collar job. The people who had the greatest difficulty with it were management.
The English pronunciation of Marie which isn't the light Dorsey inflected Ma Ree is entirely the reverse, Mah-ree which was very hard to get used to. Mary's used to be common on both sides of the ocean.
Now that little bit of grammar:
there some term for that sort of obsession, when someone is no longer
in power, yet obsessor still feels threatened in some manner? There's
probably a proper term for it. It can't be paranoia, it goes beyond
that." That should be "the sort of obsession which when someone ... feels threatened", the adverb obsessively (see an -ly and allo! it's an adverb!) modifies the verb "to feel" which is all too appropriate for Clinton. And no there isn't a word beyond paranoia as Henry Kissinger could have told you had you asked. The concept I think you want, though you've talked around it a lot is "obsessive paranoia" or "obsessively paranoid" but Clinton shows no signs of either. He does show a bit of longing for the lime-light again pretty understandable and which is also part of what I think you were groping for, but he certainly is being useful, and has only once that I know of functioned at cross-purposes with the President, you know, the Irish one President O'Bama.I particularly like the fact that his mother's people, as we Celts say, were Irish.
People accustomed to an intense busy life frequently required to function on a much higher level than the rest of us sometimes feel a profound let down and disconnection from their former world to the point of depression, but both Carter and Clinton are exemplars of how you deal with it. Both of them put their weight behind good causes to good effect. I hope I'm doing as well at Jimmy Carter's age as he is. He reminds me of my next door neighbour in Etobicoke pre 1997 who every year climbed up on his roof and put up Santa and his sleigh and reindeer and lights. He was 85, but he'd been in construction all his life. I still begged him to give me notice so I could help, but every winter, there it was.
I, partly because of my weight, Mike, and partly because of insufficient exercise have some balance problems, and when I'm working at Michael's I fall down a slope of some kind just about every weekend. The other part of the problem is that I don't sense being off-balance as well as I used to, and so I can't correct the way I once did. I caught a toe on a heaved bit of pavement on my way to the Drug store and the supermarket three months ago, and was on my face before I could get my arms out in front of me. I mashed my nose and broke one of my two front teeth, but not too badly, just kind of chipped the edge across it, so it doesn't show much. I now watch more carefully, but if I fall I try to make a joke out of it. One of the side effects of Effexor SR (Venlafaxine) is that it messes with your balance, and since I've been taking it for 6 years now, I'm pretty sure that's my problem. I'll discuss it with my GP a week Thursday. Besides I'm taking less V than previously.
So far as I can see President Clinton is doing what all former Presidents in reasonable shape used to do, which is to be as much service to the country as possible. I certainly don't see Mad Magazine dagger weilding spies behind every bush, um let's make that corner, that was entirely unintentional, and neither apparently does he. Now President Bush the Lesser on the other hand appears to be in hiding, and may well be suffering from depression, but that is not even speculation. It is a question sent off into the ozone or aether if you like obsolescent words.
