Mac's Back

John McCain makes his return to Iowa later today. I get five minutes with him after his health care town hall meeting at the Polk Co. Convention Complex. Those five minute interviews are always kind of tough. Not much time to really get into very much. While we're hearing early on, Iowa will again be a battleground state for the Presidentials this fall, you wonder exactly what that means. Barack Obama clearly did much better in this state. So does that mean he'll hit it a lot harder if he's the nominee than Hillary Clinton, who didn't do as well. Plus, she hasn't exactly talked up this state or the caucus process since she left town.

The following is a joke forwarded to me. You right-leaners will like it a lot more than the lefties. Indies, I don't know what you'll think of it. I'll try to post these from time to time just so you can see what's being passed along to in boxes these days.

Read it all the way thru-- You will smile and shake your head yes. You will love it

Robin Williams, wearing a shirt that says 'I love New York ' in Arabic. You gotta love Robin Williams.... Even if he's nuts! Leave it to Robin Williams to come up with the perfect plan. What we need now is for our UN Ambassador to stand up and repeat this message. Robin Williams' plan...(Hard to argue with his logic!) 'I see a lot of people yelling for peace but I have not 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 and present. You know, Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Tojo, Noriega, Milosevic, Hussein, and the rest of those 'good ole boys'. We will never 'interfere' again.

2) We 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 whom 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 someplace else. They can go somewhere else to sell their production. (About a week of the wells filling up the 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 someplace. 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...Now, isn't that a winner of a plan? 'The Statue of Liberty is no longer saying 'Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses.' She's got a baseball bat and she's yelling, 'you want a piece of me?' ' If you agree with the above forward it to friends...If not, and I would be amazed, DELETE it!!

Funny but I would delete it. It would be a nice experiment and the left wing loons could finally see and realize all the good we do in this world.

I hate forwards like that... distorted information with a limitless reach. That's not Robin Williams material.

Not too bad. I'd make a couple of minor changes tho;
Instead of pulling troops out of the Middle-East, I'd just use them to fortify the oil fields, have the Navy run escort for the oil tankers (which of course will have American registery). As for illegals, let them come, but instead of a fence, we'd have machine guns, napalm, gladiators, and make it a real "Running Man" experience. Heck, think of the revenue of just the Pay-Per-View rights. We'd pay off the Nat'l. debt in a year!
