Sage Sayings...

Through the years there have been little sayings that have made a lot of sense.

One is about coming in second at anything. The kid says, "Boo hoo: I didn't win the race!"
Dad says, "Yeah, but out of seven kids, you came in second."
The kid says, "Coming in second is just being the first loser."

I heard another one while listening to a commercial on TV today. The commercial mentioned several people running from a mad bear.
It said, "You don't have to run faster than the bear, just run faster than your slowest friend." Cute.


RFK,JR and Pat Robertson!...What a Team...

The late Robert F, Kennedy, the brother of a truly great president, John F Kennedy and former Attorney General, is probably turning over in his grave right now after reading this latest report written by his son, RFK,jr.

Mr. Kennedy has, in typical liberal Democrat fashion, placed the blame for the hurricane Katrina on, not only a Republican,(Mississippi Governor, Haley Barbour) but God and his messenger as well. (I guess Pat Robertson, being a minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, can be considered a messenger of God)

Some time back, before Mr Barbour was Governor of Mississippi, he was instrumental in the decision of this country to not join the Kyoto Protocol, a world emission control aggreement that had the US (the US and a trillion world cows) as the almost sole culprit for the release of co2 gasses that were allegedly destroying the Earths' ozone layer and causing global warming.

Then, sometime later, God's messenger, the Minister Pat Robertson, suggested (according to RFK,jr) that God might punish states that offended Him (by not going along with the Kyoto Protocol, I assume) so now, seeing as how Haley Barbour (Gods' offender) is the Governor of the state of Mississippi, He (God) would divert the worse part of the Hurricane Katrinas' 'flailings'(JFKs word) from New Orleans to the coast of Mississippi. And you can see what happened. Scary, ain't it!

I tell you, folks, JFK jr must have gotten his education at the Hope, Arkansas School of Idiocy! You know, where Bill Clinton got his.

I've seen some lame excuses for the weather but nothing that even comes close to being as stupid as this! I have to wonder if Mr. Kennedy,jr was loaded on something or what when he wrote this little tidbit of wisdom!

One thing for sure that I know is, when I write to Pat Robertson and ask him if what JFK,jr wrote about him is true, and if Pat says, yes it is, I'm gonna nominate Pat to be not only our next President, but our permanent President! I think, anyone that has the right ear of God, and can get Him to destroy entire coastlines of this Country just by suggesting it, could also take away any danger toward us from the rest of the world.

Just think how wonderful it will be to say to Pat Robertson, "Pat, please ask the Big Guy if he will keep the temperature of Red Bluff below 90 degrees from now on. 78 degrees would be great for a year around temp! My wife can't stand the heat and Chico the Wonder Dog hates the cold. Thanks, Pat, and thank the Big Guy for me!" Later...

"OPEC HELPLESS"...What a Crock...

Everyone who believes OPEC doesn't set the price of crude oil and couldn't lower it if they wanted to, raise your hands!

What a bunch of liars the OPEC nations are, along with our President. Right now it's hard to determine which is the biggest liar!

In this article, Saudia Arabia and Nigeria,et al, claim they cannot control the price of crude oil. That's a lie and everyone knows it! What a nation of cowards we are for allowing our president to let this ride; to allow him to keep acting as if he is powerless! He is a disgrace to this country. I, for one, will change my political party affiliation from republican to something else (whatever Pat Buchanan is) if he and other republicans don't do something soon.

Go to Sandy's blog to see some figures; how we reward the world for screwing us!

I gotta go now before I blow a gasket!


Who Said It?...

1. I loathe the military.

No mystery there. None other than President Bill Clinton.

2. "Those who want to live, let them fight, and those who do not want to fight in this world of eternal struggle do not deserve to live."

How about this one?

Pat Buchanan Says 'Impeach Bush'...

Pat Buchanan says that unless President Bush upholds the Constitution as he promised (by prosecuting the deportation of all illegal aliens)he should be impeached.I think he has a point. What do you think?


'ooops'...It's 54 40 Or Fight...

In an earlier post I used an early American fighting slogan, "44 40 or fight," as a tool to aggravate a Canadian with whom I was having a spirited discussion about something so un-important that it now escapes my memory. (I think it was just to needle him-with Canadians, being needled is their preferred form of warfare)

'Voila'!! Please make a notation of this date and time! Please sit down and prepare yourselves for a tremendous shock! Are you ready?

I made a mistake! - No-no...don't faint or run from the room in panic...don't abuse your wives or children because of your extreme agitation or dis-belief that I could actually make a mistake, even a small one like this of almost no magnitude! Calm down-stop crying and moaning-don't kick the dog anymore! 'whew'...that's better.

The actual latitude/longitude (or visa-versa) is "54 40" instead of 44 40. So the fighting slogan was, "54 40 or Fight."

The rest of the comment was basically accurate. Most of the dispute was concerning the huge area known as the Oregon Territory and the dispute was with the then British territory of Canada. (You can tell Canada is no longer a British territory; the British are always ready for a good scrap; ready to whip the bad guys)

Anyone interested in this tidbit can go to the link and read up on it. To the fellow I was harrassing; It might make you feel a little bit better if you actually do read that bit of information.

Here's Another Everyone Who Loves America Would Love To Hear...

Subject: News real Americans want to hear !


"My Fellow Americans: As you all know, the defeat of Iraq regime has been completed.
Since congress does not want to spend any more money on this war, our mission in Iraq is complete.
This morning I gave the order for a complete removal of all American forces from Iraq. This action will be complete within 30 days. It is now to begin the reckoning.

Before me, I have two lists. One list contains the names of countries which have stood by our side during the Iraq conflict. This list is short. The United Kingdom, Spain, Bulgaria, Australia, and Poland are some of the countries listed there.

The other list contains everyone not on the first list. Most of the world's nations are on that list. My press secretary will be distributing copies of both lists later this evening.

Let me start by saying that effective immediately, foreign aid to those nations on List 2 ceases immediately and indefinitely. The money saved during the first year alone will pretty much pay for the costs of the Iraqi war.

The American people are no longer going to pour money into third world Hell-holes and watch those government leaders grow fat on corruption.

Need help with a famine? Wrestling with an epidemic? Call France.

In the future, together with Congress, I will work to redirect this money toward solving the vexing social problems we still have at home. On that note, a word to terrorist organizations. Screw with us and we will hunt you down and eliminate you and all your friends from the face of the earth.

Thirsting for a gutsy country to terrorize? Try France, or maybe China.
I am ordering the immediate severing of diplomatic relations with France, Germany, and Russia. Thanks for all your help, comrades. We are retiring from NATO as well. Bon chance, mes amis.

I have instructed the Mayor of New York City to begin towing the many UN diplomatic vehicles located in Manhattan with more than two unpaid parking tickets to sites where those vehicles will be stripped, shredded and crushed. I don't care about whatever treaty pertains to this. You creeps have tens of thousands of unpaid tickets. Pay those tickets tomorrow or watch your precious Benzes, Beamers and limos be turned over to some of the finest chop shops in the world. I love New York .
A special note to our neighbors. Canada is on List 2. Since we are likely to be seeing a lot more of each other, you folks might want to try not pissing us off for a change.

Mexico is also on List 2. President Fox and his entire corrupt government really need an attitude adjustment. I will have a couple extra tank and infantry divisions sitting around. Guess where I am going to put em? Yep, border security. So start doing something with your oil.

Oh, by the way, the United States is abrogating the NAFTA
treaty - starting now.

We are tired of the one-way highway. Immediately, we'll be drilling for oil in Alaska - which will take care of this country's oil needs for decades to come. If you're an environmentalist who opposes this decision, I refer you to List 2 above: pick a country and move there. They care.

It is time for America to focus on its own welfare and its own citizens. Some will accuse us of isolationism. I answer them by saying, "darn tootin."

Nearly a century of trying to help folks live a decent life around the world has only earned us the undying enmity of just about everyone on the planet. It is time to eliminate hunger in America. It is time to eliminate homelessness in America. To the nations on List 1, a final thought. Thanks guys. We owe you and we won't forget.

To the nations on List 2, a final thought: You might want to learn to speak Arabic.

God bless America. Thank you and good night."

If you can read this, thank a teacher. If you are reading it in English, thank a soldier.

(Please forward this to at least ten friends and see what happens! Let's get this to every USA computer!)


This Is Worth Reading...

Remember the guy who got on a plane with a bomb built into his shoe and tried to light it?

Did you know his trial is over?
Did you know he was sentenced?
Did you see/hear any of the judge's comments on TV/Radio?
Didn't think so.

Everyone should hear what the judge had to say. The ruling by Judge William Young, US District Court.Prior to sentencing, the Judge asked the defendant if he had anything to say.

His response: After admitting his guilt to the court for the record,Reid also admitted his "allegiance to Osama bin Laden, to Islam, and to the religion of Allah," defiantly stated "I think I will not apologize for my actions," and told the court "I am at war with your country." Judge Young then delivered the statement quoted below: January 30, 2003, United States vs. Reid. Judge Young:

"Mr. Richard C. Reid, hearken now to the sentence the Court imposes upon you.
On counts 1, 5 and 6 the Court sentences you to life in prison in the custody of the United States Attorney General. On counts 2, 3, 4 and 7, the Court sentences you to 20 years in prison on each count, the sentence on each count to run consecutive with the other. That's 80 years. On count 8 the Court sentences you to the mandatory 30 years consecutive to the 80 years just imposed. The Court imposes upon you each of the eight counts a fine of $250,000 for the aggregate fine of $2 million. The Court accepts the government's recommendation with respect to restitution and orders restitution in the amount of $298.17 to Andre Bousquet and $5,784 to American Airlines. The Court imposes upon you the $800 special assessment.

The Court imposes upon you five years supervised release simply because the law requires it. But the life sentences are real life sentences so I need go no further. This is the sentence that is provided for by our statutes. It is a fair and just sentence. It is a righteous sentence.

Let me explain this to you. We are not afraid of you or any of your terrorist co-conspirators, Mr. Reid. We are Americans. We have been through the fire before. There is all too much war talk here and I say that to everyone with the utmost respect Here in this court, we deal with individuals as individuals and care for individuals as individuals. As human beings, we reach out for justice.

You are not an enemy combatant. &! nbsp;You are a terrorist. You are not a soldier in any war. You are a terrorist. To give you that reference, to call you a soldier, gives you far too much stature. Whether it is the officers of government who do it or your attorney who does it, or if you think you are a soldier. You are not----- you are a terrorist. And we do not negotiate with terrorists. We do not meet with terrorists. We do not sign documents with terrorists. We hunt them down one by one and bring them to justice.

So war talk is way out of line in this court. You are a big fellow. But you are not that big. You're no warrior. I've know warriors. You are a terrorist. A species of criminal that is guilty of multiple attempted murders. In a very real sense, State Trooper Santiago had it right when you first were taken off that plane and into custody and you wondered where th! e press and where the TV crews were, and he said: "You're no big deal."

You are no big deal.

What your able counsel and what the equally able United States attorneys have grappled with and what I have as honestly as I know how tried to grapple with, is why you did something so horrific. What was it that led you here to this courtroom today?

I have listened respectfully to what you have to say. And I ask you to search your heart and ask yourself what sort of unfathomable hate led you to do what you are guilty and admit you are guilty of doing. And I have an answer for you. It may not satisfy you, but as I search this entire record, it comes as close to understanding as I know.

It seems to me you hate the one thing that to us is most precious. ! You hate our freedom. Our individual freedom. Our individual freedom to live as we choose, to come and go as we choose, to believe or not believe as we individually choose. Here, in this society, the very wind carries freedom. It carries it everywhere from sea to shining sea. It is because we prize individual freedom so much that you are here in this beautiful courtroom. So that everyone can see, truly see, that justice is administered fairly, individually, and discretely. It is for freedom's sake that your lawyers are striving so vigorously on your behalf and have filed appeals, will go on in their representation of you before other judges.

We Americans are all about freedom. Because we all know that the way we treat you, Mr. Reid, is the measure of our own liberties. Make no mistake though. It is yet true that we will bare any burden; pay any price, to preserve ! our freedoms. Look around this courtroom. Mark it well. The world is not going to long remember what you or I say here. Day after tomorrow, it will be forgotten, but this, however, will long endure. Here in this courtroom and courtrooms all across America, the American people will gather to see that justice, individual justice, justice, not war, individual justice is in fact being done. The very President of the United States through his officers come into courtrooms and lay out evidence on which specific matters can be judged and juries of citizens will gather to sit and judge that evidence democratically, to mold and shape and refine our sense of justice.

See that flag, Mr Reid? That's the flag of the United States of America. That flag will fly there long after this is all forgotten. That flag stands for freedom. And it always will.

Mr. Custody Officer. Stand him down."

So, how much of this Judge's comments did we hear on our TV sets?
We need more judges like Judge Young, but that's another subject. Pass this around. Everyone should and needs to hear what this fine judge had to say.
Powerful words that strike home.

God bless America!

One To Work On...

A bookkeeper friend of mine was into not only numbers but kinds of words and word formations as a hobby. He enjoyed tinkering and investigating everything about words.

One of his projects was to find words with unusual makeup.

For instance; How many words can you find with double letters such as school,- sch-OO-l? Charlie found 126.

How many words can you find that have double double letters, such as balloon,- 'Ba-LLOO-n'?

Charlie found this a bit harder. He found 61.

Now for the biggee! How many words can you find with triple-double letters? Charlie could find only one. How about it?

Give it a go!

Golly, Gosh, Oh Gee...

Cindy Sheehan Requests Privacy

Gosh, why would anyone bother this humble and unassuming little lady? It's a shame! Why won't people leave her alone? She just wants to live her life privately and quietly and comfort her mother. !

Ain't it a toot? Is this the gal who's been camped on Bush's door step for how long now?

Right or wrong, Cindy, you can't have it both ways! So your mother had a stroke-so what? What would you have done if Mrs. Bush, W's mother, had had a stroke? Yeah, I know,- you'd have packed up your camp and entourage and gone home and let him have his privacy. Sure you would! 'duh'...- believe that!

Cindy, I don't know if you are right or wrong about how you feel and what you're doing to the president but it's a bit presumptuous to think the gate doesn't swing both ways!

Now, be a man and don't whine because you're getting back some of what you've been giving out! You might be right in what you're doing with the pres, who knows or even cares, but you ain't no better than W or anyone else! What goes around, comes around! Face it-get over it!

Someone (I won't say who-you can guess) once complained about something that had happened to him or her. (Make it a 'he'for this) He said, "That shouldn't have happened to me- it wasn't fair."

The other person said, "Life isn't fair. If life were fair, Elvis would be alive and the impersonators would be dead!"

Well, today's the day! I have to go to the dentist and have a crown put on one of my teeth. I'll be happy to get it over with. Maybe then I won't have to be as careful as I did with the temporary cap that is on the tooth now.

The Shame of The Leaders of Israel and the United States of America...

What other President of the United States of America besides George W. Bush would just look on and say or do nothing while the citizens of Israel, the only friend America has in the Middle East, are forcibly removed from their homes!

What other Israli Premier besides the liar and coward, Ariel Sharon, would allow his own people to be forcibly evicted from their own homes!

Be careful, World, Islam is winning!


President Cheney...An Open Letter...

Below is a copy of an e-mail I sent to the Presidential Comments, the Vice President, my senator and my representative. 'Hint-Hint' -In case anyone is interested and just don't know what to say.

Day before yesterday I went to Modesto to see a sister who had come there from Texas-she isn't in good health and I wanted to assure myself of seeing her at least one more time in this life. It is 215 miles there (430 miles roundtrip) My wife had the car in Redding where she goes every day to be with our son who is dying of cancer(any day now) so I had to take the pickup. Fuel for the trip cost over 80 bucks. How ridiculous is that? Last year it would have been about 35 or so bucks.

Now I notice some of the news agencies are reporting the price of gas now and including the higher price in places like Sweden and anywhere else it is higher. That's supposed to make the terroristic rise in oil prices all right. And you know what?,- many people are such sheep they agree we still aren't paying enough. For those stupid people I say, "Then maybe we should also be ruled by a priest or Imam or some other religious potentate or a king or dictator (just like the rest of them!)."

Here is the e-mail, for what it's worth. If you agree, copy and paste it and send it to the same places I did.

And whatever your reps and senators addresses are.

Mr President,

With all due respect, you should remove yourself from the Office of the President and have Vice President Cheney replace you. You are doing nothing to alleviate the surging and cripling rise of the price of oil and it is killing our Nation.

You do not seem to know how to act in your capacity as President for the betterment of our Nation. You are doing nothing to stop the illegal immigration of people from Mexico and your actions in Iraq, while started for a grand reason, are no longer effective and are now counter productive. Any other president would have by now put enough soldiers in Iraq to completely subdue the people who are killing our troops.

You seem not to know the value of the veto and are allowing this Nation to get so far into debt as to be on the verge of bankruptcy.

I will not try to give you advice on how to solve these problems; I'm sure you fully understand what to do to make us again well and secure. You just seem not to be willing to do the things that are needed.

I voted for you twice. I really regret having voted for you the second time. I know Mr Cheney would do the right thing to heal this Nation.Please allow him to assume the Presidency while there is still time.
With all due respect,

XXXXXXXXXXXXX-A true Republican
Red Bluff, Ca. 96080

I Couldn't Believe It...

I came home a few weeks ago from somewhere and found a circular spot on the carpet. I looked around for Chico the Wonder Dog. He finally came out from the depths of his bed and stood in front of me. I gave him a dirty look and he looked at me, (he has to look, dogs can't talk)"What's the problem?"
I 'looked' back at him, "Did you leave this spot on the rug?"
He looked at me, "You were gone for six hours."
I looked at him, "The next time I'll rub your nose in it and acquaint you with a folded issue of the Enquirer."
He showed me seventy three teeth, not evenly spaced and very ugly. I reached for the Enquirer and he retreated to his bed. Evidently he wasn't anxious to read the paper.

For the next few weeks I found no more spots on the rug. I couldn't help but wonder how Chico the Wonder Dog was keeping from making spots on the rug now when he couldn't before.

I looked at him, "How are you doing that now when you couldn't before?"

He looked at me, "Forget it!" and he went back to his bed.

I have to explain; Chico the Wonder Dog's bed is out of bounds for me. He is always safe there, in a sanctuary, so to speak. Sometimes he disappears from in front of me, faster than the eye can see, and as if by magic, re-appears in his bed. He's good!

I finally couldn't stand not knowing so I rigged a web cam up on my Dell and pointed it out toward where the latest deed had been done then I turned it on to record to the hard drive and I left the house for eight hours. I mostly sat outside in the pickup, out of sight of Chico the Wonder Dog, and waited patiently.

That night, after Chico the Wonder Dog went to sleep, I played the picture back.

I know you won't believe this; I didn't myself at first.

Chico the Wonder Dog held it in for the first five hours and then, when he couldn't hold it any longer, he did his deed at the prescribed spot. Then (now listen carefully and with an open mind) he walked to the sink, opened the door to the area under the sink, reached in his head and with his teeth, brought out a spray bottle of heavy duty rug cleaner.(He had seen me use it so he knew which bottle it was) He carried it over to the aforementioned spot and put it down on it's side. Then he opened his mouth and clamped the neck of the bottle and the spray nozzle handle between his teeth and began clamping his teeth shut and open until a bunch of sprays had been applied to the spot.

Then he took the bottle back and went into the living room and dragged Donna's footstool into the laundry room (where there are always plenty of used towels) and jumped onto the footstool then leapt onto the washer and got a towel out of the basket. (I told you you wouldn't believe this.)

Then he dragged it over to where the spot had been soaking and sat back on his haunches and with his front paws (his hands) and his mouth, scrubbed the spot until it was "spotless."

Then he put everything back exactly as it was. I couldn't believe my eyes! I went in and woke Donna and told her to come and see. She asked what it was and when I told her, she yawned and said, "uh-huh," and turned over and went back to sleep.

I know this is hard to believe but you just have to know Chico the Wonder Dog. I have never 'looked it' at him and he has never 'indicated it' to me (or anyone else, I guess). It'll stay our secret. But I think we have a better understanding of and a greater respect for each other now. That makes it all worthwhile.

Love Apple...

My father-in-law was a lover of apples and one day we were discussing apples and the term,'Love Apple,' came up. I really liked the term (not knowing at that time that a love apple is actually a tomato) so I decided to write a song about it. I called it:

Love Apple

Winesap and Johnnie and Red Roman Beauty,
These fruits are so sweet and so firm and so round-
You must bend down the limb, pick them off while they're growing
Or they'll shrivel and die and fall off on the ground.

The Earth is their Mother , the tree is their Father,
The limbs get their life from the rain and the sun
And give birth to the leaves and the buds and the blossoms
And love apples grow when the cycle is done.

When they're tender and tasty and they're just right for plucking,
If you gently carress them and you pick them with care-
They will nourish and fill you and their juice will enrich you,
But if the blossoms are crushed all the tree will be bare.

You must tend to the roots where the life blood is starting,
To enrichen the soil, you must spread love around,
Because there's nothing as sad as an ageing love apple
That has withered and died and fallen off on the ground.

What's Going To Happen?...

Donna and I are driving along in the car and we pass a typical gas station. The price of gas is $2.69 a gallon and the price of diesel fuel (for the pickup) is $2.89 a gallon. Donna looks over to me and asks, "Boy, what's gonna happen? How high will it get?" I say I don't know.

But the problem is, I do know. It's gonna keep going up as long as the "lazy American" sits on his ass and does nothing about it.

I read in a blog yesterday that, taking into account the real gdp, wage, cost of living and etc of 1972/73 when the last gas lie was started by our government, five bucks a gallon right now would still be reasonable. That statement made by one of the "lazy Americans" is the beginning of the usual trend of the fools of this country who accept whatever the hell comes along as inevitable.

As long as you people sit on your asses and do nothing, you deserve to be priced out of existence. More power to you.

The problem is, people like me who at least make an effort to get this bull shit handled by writing letters, sending e-mails and making phone calls to the president, vice president and representatives insisting they do something about the phony fuel shortage price hikes are affected, too.

We should be drilling for oil right now in ANWAR, off the Florida and California coasts and tapping the shale in existing wells to get our own oil.

We should have already stopped all foreign aid to opec countries who have tripled the price of bulk oil this last year.

We should bring all our troops home from countries who live to take advantage of the US. Like Suadi Arabia, Kuwait and even Iraq. (Or completely take over Iraq and make it into a real free Nation instead of screwing around losing people and accomplishing nothing in the long run)

There are a lot of things we could do to bring the price of oil back down where it should be but lazy ass Americans are too busy pissing on their lawns to do anything that might help. And George W. Bush is too stupid and cowardly to do anything without orders from the American People. How's that for a quandry? One's scared and the other is glad of it!

Now, instead of writing bull shit in your blog today, take that time and write to George Bush with carbon copies to the vp, rep and senators and dept of energy. 'duh'...What a laugh that is!

Robin Williams' Peace Plan...

Sandy sent this to me and, since I have been blog-challenged lately, I'll post it in place of one of my own well thought out, excellent and original eye-opening informative pieces of wonderment. 'whew'
(Boy, who is he full of?)

Robin Williams' plan! (It's hard to argue with his logic!)"I see a lot of people yelling for peace but I havenot heard of a plan for peace. So, here's one plan."

1. The US will apologize to the world for our"interference" in their affairs, past & present. You know, Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Tojo, Noriega, Milosevic, Hussein, and the rest of those 'good ole boys,' We will never "interfere" again.

2. The US will withdraw our troops from all over the world starting with Germany, South Korea, the Middle East, and the Philippines. They don't want us there. We would station troops at our borders. No one allowed sneaking through holes in the fence.

3. All illegal aliens have 90 days to get their affairs together and leave. We'll give them a free trip home. After 90 days the remainder will be gathered up and deported immediately, regardless of who or where they are.... They're illegal!!! France
will welcome them.

4. All future visitors will be thoroughly checked and limited to 90 days unless given a special permit!!!!!!!! No one from a terrorist nation will be allowed in. If you don't like it there, change it yourself and don't hide here. Asylum would never be available to anyone.
We don't need any more cab drivers or 7-11 cashiers.

5. No foreign "students" over age 21. The older ones are the bombers.If they don't attend classes, they get a "D" and it's back home baby.

6. The US will make a strong effort to become self-sufficient energy wise. This will include developing nonpolluting sources of energy but will require a temporary drilling of oil in the Alaskan wilderness. The caribou will have to cope for a while.

7. Offer Saudi Arabia and other oil producing countries $10 a barrel for their oil. If they don't like it, we go some place else. They can go somewhere else to sell their production. (About a week of the wells filling up their storage sites would be enough.)

8. If there is a famine or other natural catastrophe in the world, we will not "interfere." They can pray to Allah or whomever, for seeds, rain, cement or whatever they need. Besides most of what we give them is stolen or given to the army. The people who need it most get very little, if anything.

9. Ship the UN Headquarters to an isolated island
some place. We don't need the spies and fair weather friends here. Besides, the building would make a good homeless shelter or lockup for illegal aliens.

10. All Americans must go to charm and beauty school. That way, no one can call us "Ugly Americans" any longer. The language we speak is ENGLISH.....learn it...or LEAVE.....

"The Statue of Liberty is no longer saying 'Give me your poor, your tired, your huddled masses.' She's got a baseball bat and she's yelling, 'You want a piece of me?' "
Now, isn't that a winner of a plan?

There are a couple of things I might change a bit here but, all in all, don't you agree it's a pretty good plan?

Candidate For Republican President for 2008...

OK, folks, where do we go for a candidate for the next presidental election? How about Senator Fred Thompson? I think he's worth looking at.

Go to the link above and check him out. And he's doing pretty well with 'Law and Order.'

I think he is pretty Conservative about the right issues. He might make a good Republican President and he has appeal.He looks good on camera.

Whatta you think? Let me know...
