wise man in the east

Who said these words:


"I know the human being and fish can coexist peacefully."


"Families is where our nation finds hope, where wings take dream."


"It's clearly a budget. It's got a lot of numbers in it."


"I know how hard it is for you to put food on your family."


"I do know I'm ready for the job.
And if not, that's just the way it goes."


"They misunderestimated me."


Need a clue? Try here.



Bush was in India this week, offering them enough uranium to more than triple their output of new warheads. This was as a reward for India's years of defying the nuclear non-proliferation treaty.

Bush's suggestion that the nuclear deal is about global warming and reducing pressure on oil demand, isn't taken seriously by people in the know.

"The actual rationale is to develop a strategic relationship to deal with ... China," said Peter Hayes, head of San Francisco's Nautilus Institute, which studies energy and nuclear issues.

The lesson for Iran is that if you just hold out, eventually America will think you are important enough and they will break the rules to accommodate you.


But I do feel sorry for him, trying to reassure his country that the takeover of U.S. ports by D P World is safe (it has been thoroughly vetted by the Homeland Security officials and the Pentagon).

He can repeat forever that the United Arab Emirates is an ally in the "war on terror" and that to block the takeover would send a terrible signal to the Arab world. But in this politically hysterical environment, no one is listening.

Adolf! Zeig! The boys from the old country want Big Arnie to be the next president. Them Americans need to change the law so that anyone from anywhere can become president. I'd like to become President myself one day when I've got my narcissistic personality disorder under control. I'd promise to attack everyone equally. This would help a lot! Hotboy

Adolf! Heil! Politics. World government. We should all be Americans and get a vote in the American elections. We should spend dollars. There should be states rights applied to us and everyone live in a loose anarchic association. This fits the globalisation of the telly. Appparently, half of east Africa is about to die of drought again. Where are MacDonalds? Why haven't they got the Hercules Aeroplanes flying in MacDonald shops to feet the starving and get good photie opportunities. I think it's time to start a site solving the world's problems.Do you think this would help? Hotboy
