- May 29, 2008Klemp's illustrious example for H.I.s--LOL! I'm
taking this excerpt from Prometheus' post on the
June 2008 H.I. Newsletter on Klemp's spin regarding
my least favorite Supreme Court Justice. Klemp wrote:
"CLARENCE THOMAS is one of NINE justices on the
United States Supreme Court. Long before he
gained that lofty position, he was a cash strapped
young lawyer trying to feed his family.
One day, on his way to work, he spotted a wallet
on the sidewalk. He began to count the bills. At six
hundred dollars, he stopped counting; there were
more. The owner's name was inside, so Thomas
called him. A gruff voice answered. later the owner
arrived at his office to claim his wallet. Suspiciously,
he began to count is bills.
`It's all there!' Thomas said, peeved.
The man peeled a five-dollar bill from the stack of
bills and held it out. Thomas snapped, `I didn't do it
for the money!' The man walked out without even
a word of thanks.
This STORY tells of a principled young man Whose
Destiny was to lead him to a Cherished Seat on the
highest court of the land. He did need the money.
Who would ever have known? No one! Yet he did
the Right Thing, because he would have known.
In his MEMOIR, My Grandfather's Son, he writes:
`Honesty is what you do when no one is looking.'"
Once again, Klemp shows his inability to decipher
what should be proper and normal human behavior.
It seems that the disgruntled Thomas and Klemp
are similar in negative viewpoints. Thomas "shares"
his experience of finding a wallet with a large sum
of money on his walk to work one morning. Yes,
Thomas did the right thing--he notified the owner.
But then the story should have stopped there, but
instead, Thomas goes sour when he shares that the
owner immediately looked inside his wallet to count
his money. Thomas tells him it's all there--but really
how does Thomas know how much money had
originally been in the wallet? He only knows how much
he counted. Maybe a thief had grabbed some of the
original money before dropping it on the pavement?
That is speculation on my part, but it was also
speculation on Thomas' part to believe no money had
been lost. Plus, the owner was doing only what would
be natural--checking to see if the contents were intact!
However, Thomas got peevish when the man did this--
which really is a frequent attitude displayed by Klemp as
well! LOL! To top it off, Thomas criticizes the man for
only offering him a $5.00 award for the find. Well, it
seems $5.00 is cheap for sure, but if Thomas were pure
in doing the right thing, he shouldn't have expected or
judged what the man would offer or not. I mean that
would be the highest road! And I also found it interesting
that Thomas had a job with an office at the time. Sounds
like he wasn't starving, doesn't it! So just how needy would
he have been at the time? Probably no more than the common
man! Of course, I recognize that a black man might have
felt sensitive to the issue of being honest, but yet a man
on his way to becoming a supreme court justice, might
have reflected better on this incident in his memoir so
many years later. It seems that Thomas and Klemp have
some very similar attitudes of distrust and anger, still,
after all these years. Basically, I find Klemp's stories to
be very depressing and critical of others. His writing style
is to criticize others' failings in order to make himself
look good! It's just distraction and delusion! Thomas'
moral compass in his story really doesn't make up for
his lack of honesty when under oath. And Klemp's
feeding on this story is just another example of his
selling snake oil to his H.I.s LOL!
