OT Robin Williams' Plan A little extreme but interesting

I wonder what would happen if the US choose this path?

Robin Williams' plan...(Hard to argue with this 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 & present. You know, Hitler, Tojo, Noriega, Milosovich 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 and the Philippines. They don't want us there. We would station troops at our borders. No one 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. France would 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 would 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 "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 non-polluting 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 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 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...

RE: OT Robin Williams' Plan A little extreme but interesting

Overdue since the 70s but there's more now than ever of huge voting blocks living in the big, enlightened northern cities from New York to Boston to San Francisco that hate this country's cultural heritage so much, will any of these things happen?

I'll know things are changing for the better when we tell the UN to pack up in NY and move to Mogidishu, Somalia.

I'd also like to hear baby boomers admit that the fix for overtaxation is the flat tax: we already have it in the form of SS taxes that are more than 15 percent.

And, more honesty please. We can start by simply changing the name of all government transfer payments to "welfare" instead of fancy names like social security.

Any MB owner that draws a social security payment, for instance, is part of a problem that can only get worse. But, the problem has been known since the 70s and lies and disinformation and unintelligent voting continues with the only "cure" to be rampant, unabated inflation at some point, changing all savers' dollars into pennies.

For Mac:
Wait a minute! How about an MB owner that receives 2 Social Security checks (1 for me & 1 for my 13 yr old). Two additional pensions make for a good retirement life. What a GREAT country.

Wait a second. I paid into the social security system. As screwed up as it is, I have a right to draw a check on it. LEt me keep the $$ and I'll invest it myself at a substaintially higher return. THE PROBLEM with the system is caused by those who draw a check and have never paid into the system. I have tenants that sign their 3 week old infants up for social security disability under ADHD/ADD guidelines so they can draw another check. THAT's the problem----fraud. Eliminate that and the system will actually be there when I am old enough to draw a check.
