Fresh Out of Words

Sorry, Bush. Today is one of those days. I'm all out of words. Sometimes, when I listen to what's happening in the world, I just get discouraged. Today I hear of a treaty between Pakistan and the Taliban, and the conflict continuing to escalate in poor Afghanistan. I read about the famous dueling speeches at the United Nations. I'd like to have something smart to say, but I just throw up my hands... Maybe I'll think of something witty and wise a little later. For now, I'm fresh out of wit and wisdom. Have a good day.

Glad to hear my thoughts expressed at the UN by Chavez and Ahmadinejad. (I know they are dirty brown people and should not be listened to but....)

1.) UN Security Council is not democratic and should be opened up to the world and Veto abolished.

2.) MOST of the world is behind Iran and Venezula. USA lies and considers USA & Europe the entire world. (I guess because they are all white.)

3.) Over the past 100 years it has been mostly USA & Europe who caused wars all over the World, NOT Iran or Venezuela. What more can one expect from a people who killed from the Atlantic to the Pacific oceans and continue to do so. Look in the mirror and tell the truth America!

And finally, BUSH does act like a Devil and should be shown for what he is. Propaganda? Bush=Propaganda!

Thanks, David. That's a nice way to see it! And thanks for filling in for me, Gringo! While you tend sometimes to be rather more black-and-white than I would, I judge that we're pretty much on the same side! Cheers, PaL

Well, SeƱor Chavez was candid, and I must admit I smiled a lot while he was up there talking. Ahhh, smell the sulphur:). Bush figures that as long as he's 'home' he can say what he wants, so does Bolton. When they are out and about, it's a tad different, diplomacy has to take some form or other in the different countries. When in S.A. I noticed not many wanted to even stand by him little lone talk to him, even Blair was off with Chirac discussing something or other. Bush isn't liked by anyone of the leaders on earth at this time. And Gringo, it doesn't mater if your white, brown or black, Bush is equally prejudiced, so don't just lay it on the 'brown' people my friend...lol:D. Yeah, I'm sorta behind Iran in one respect, they have the right to have nuclear energy. I'm also behind Chavez to a point too. What they have said rings true...

PK, I was definitely just joking regarding brown people!! Exaggerating in a frustrated way.

Many people simply don't get a political voice, until they elect someone who represents them. This is usually someone against the current elite representation of their country, thus against our current policies.
