You can't avoid pain by fencing yourself from it.
Some times you need the help of others more than anything else
But you have to let them close enough to help......
People want to be needed, I found that out too

Posted:has anyone read micheal moores book "dude where's my country"
its amazingly eye opening i recommend it to everyone
i was a bit pissed off that he got re-elected but he's only the greater of two evils
i guess things might go more smoothly in iraq seeing as none of the terrorist dudes will think that they've won the war or anything like that oh well

Posted:Well, this is in the social chat forum... so here's one of those web-thingies getting circulated...

(And nate... 'only' the greater of two evils eek Things are about to get much worse in Iraq, because Bush now feels he has the mandate to continue with his bloody war. Incidentally, the trouble there was not started by 'terrorist dudes'. It was started by people fighting back from an invading force - but admittedly, with the mess Bush has made there and the decline of law and order, such dudes are finding safe haven in Iraq)


From the web:

To the citizens of the United States of America,

In the light of your failure to be able to select a suitable President of the USA andthus to govern yourselves in a fair manner (fair to the rest of us that is), we hereby give notice of the revocation of your independence, effective today.

Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will resume monarchical duties over all states, commonwealths and other territories. Except Utah, which she does not fancy. Your new prime minister (The Right Honourable Tony Blair, MP, for the 97.85% of you who have until now been unaware that there is a world outside your borders) will appoint a minister for America without the need for further elections. Congress and the Senate will be disbanded. A questionnaire will be circulated next year to determine whether any of you noticed.

To aid in the transition to a British Crown Dependency, the following Rules are introduced with immediate effect:

1. You should look up "revocation" in the Oxford English Dictionary. Then look up "aluminium". Check the pronunciation guide. You will be amazed at just how wrongly you have been pronouncing it. Generally, you should raise your vocabulary to acceptable levels. Look up "vocabulary". Using the same twenty seven words interspersed with filler noises such as "like" and "you know" is an unacceptable and inefficient form of communication. Look up "interspersed".

2. There is no such thing as "US English". We will let Microsoft know on your behalf.

3. You should learn to distinguish the English and Australian accents. It really isn't that hard.

4. Hollywood will be required occasionally to cast English actors as the good guys.

5. You should relearn your original national anthem, "God Save The Queen", but only after fully carrying out task 1. We would not want you to get confused and give up half way through.

6. You should stop playing American "football". There is only one kind of football. What you refer to as American "football" is not a very good game. The 2.15% of you who are aware that there is a world outside your borders may have noticed that no one else plays "American" football. You will no longer be allowed to play it, and should instead play proper football. Initially, it would be best if you played with the girls. It is a difficult game. Those of you brave enough will, in time, be allowed to play rugby (which is similar to American "football", but does not involve stopping for a rest every twenty seconds or wearing full Kevlar body armour like nancies). We are hoping to get together at least a US rugby sevens side by 2008.

7. You should declare war on Quebec and France, using nuclear weapons if they give you any merde. The 97.85% of you who were not aware that there is a world outside your borders should count yourselves lucky. The Russians have never been the bad guys.

8. July 4th is no longer a public holiday. November 2nd will be a new national holiday, but only in England. It will be called "Indecision Day".

9. All American cars are hereby banned. They are crap and it is for your own good. When we show you German cars, you will understand what we mean.

10. Please tell us who killed JFK. It's been driving us crazy.

Thank you for your cooperation.

2.) My bad!

3.) James Bond and Crocodile Dundee don't sound the same.

4.) Speaking of James Bond... that one counts for like 3 British good guys! (the character, not necessarily the actors portraying him)

5.) Are you asking us to put God back in politics?

6.) Well we seem to clean up in every other Olympic event... not our fault we have to provide ourselves with our own challenges.

7.) Telling us we "should" go to war with someone? That goes counter to everything I've heard on here.

8.) I'd say the last one was decisive enough.

9.) Have you SEEN the New Beetle?

10.) Why the sudden caring about JFK?

1962, lessee.... JFK to USSR: "We got a blockade on you now, remove those WMD's or face our wrath."
USSR: "Okay!"

Posted:What Dio, you dont believe King Arthur was real?
Or do you mean the American Camelot; that was obviously a fairy-tale.

Ive said this before, but I sometimes wonder how many Americans think they won the Vietnam war considering the massive number of Rambo type movies Hollywood pumped out depicting Americans as the winners.

Posted:Lol,

There is evidence to suggest there was a king named Arthur at around that time, but whether any of the exploits of Camelot and the knights of the round table are accurate, I don't know.

Most of the stories were sourced from Mallory's Le Morte Darthur.

Posted:WOW its wierd how much the election of ONE guy has affected the entire world!! being american (and sorry i voted for kerry) its strange to see, yes i understand the war has affected everybody, and its bush's war, but think about it from out side the box.........ONE MAN thats all he is, and yet it affects EVERYONE, i think that this damn country has to much pull in the world.........obviously the U.S. gov. feels it has the right to police the world, and at this point it has gone to Bush's head, how much power he has............any one else find it wierd that the army did this big assult on fallujah 2 DAYS after bush was re-elected? i think its suspect

It's Deja Vu all over again.

Looking forward to the further antics of Bush and Blair.

[NYC's Sarcasm Explained For Those Confused by Sarcasm: The reelection of Blair reminds me quite a bit of the reelection of Bush. There are obvious differences. I feel a small bit today as I did on the day when this thread was started.]

I agree - I somehow feel that Bush gave some ideas to Tony on how to get re-elected, ie. trounce all over your opponents and make it look like a vote the other way and everything will come crashing down. And that in a few years time Bush n' Blair will be scheming to start some terrible war once more, but i have the feeling that there will be a lot more opposition and if Tony does do another Iraq, we could see some interesting images on the evening news. I doubt we'll stand by one more time...

Posted:Very true lads.

American politiking is being imitated more and more in UK politics... the 'personality' over policies, the rude mud-slinging, the underhanded tactics...

Admittedly, these have all been factors in British politics for years... but the brazen in-your-face deviousness of Bush as been an inspiration to them all.

It has been highly amusing watching the change in our own local Northern Irish representatives.
I'm sure they've all got stylists now rolleyes smile

Did anyone ever see the photo of him looking through binoculars with the lens caps still on? Or the one where he is reading a book upside down.
Or how about the speech when he said " Terrorists will never stop thinking of ways to damage america , and neither will we" or it was something like it.
Do you American HOP members see these pictures or hear these messed up speeches?
