A Change of Subject: The Plan

The Plan! 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 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, Mussolini, Stalin, Tojo, Noriega, Milosevic, Hussein, and the rest of those ' good 'ole' boys', we will never 'interfere' again.

This I can agree with. I don't feel we need to apologize, but the point needs to be made that our "interference" has saved a lot of butts from tyranny. But, hey, if they don't want our help anymore, we can politely apologize and stop interfering.

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.

Not a bad idea to stop illegal immigration. I'm all for folks who want to come here LEGALLY and be an American. Appeals to my love of tradition.

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.

I'd even go so far as to offer that 90 days of amnesty. Come on down to the immigration office and get checked out. If you're a good honest person with a job and a willingness to learn English, I welcome you with open arms. Now get your butts down to immigration and do it correctly.

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.

The big part I agree with here is "change it (your nation) yourself." Hell, they seem to have no problems making roadside bombs to blow up our "interfering" military. Go bomb your own government if you don't like it.

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.

Sorry, can't agree with this one. Most of the bombers were between the ages of 17-40. We're back to "no terrorist nations" allowed in. Period. However, I can see checking to make sure the students are in school and making decent grades at accredited colleges only. Sorry, no aviation schools this time.

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

Let's give this one a big "hell yeah!" We have the technology, and if the government wasn't paying for all of our foreign "interference" (military jaunts and aid) I'd bet we'd be going solar, wind, and water powered in less than a decade. Desalinization plants would also solve a lot of the water shortages, too. We have all these proven technologies available, some for decades. Let's use them. A few government grants spread (dare I use this word?) liberally around the states would go a looong way. We spend billions overseas in "interference" aid and on military "interference." A billion to each state to develop sustainable energy appropriate to the locale would pretty much solve the energy crisis. Kansas, Nebraska, Colorado, and the Dakotas have enough open land for massive wind farms to handle most of the interior, and the coastal states could suck up energy from wave machines if they didn't use solar or wind.

Let's throw in a billion or two to our AMERICAN car companies to help with development of the hydro-car. It's already proven to work. All the car companies need is the cash to convert their automobile factories to hydro-car technology. (If a guy can do it in his garage, I figure Ford and Chevy can handle the task.)

Nuclear plants would be good, too. Again, a proven technology that reduces dependence on foreign oil.

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.)

Hmm. Might be amusing. We'd have to prepare by opening up the oil reserves and give the oil companies a year to stop buying foreign oil and use only our oil reserves and what we can pull out of the Gulf of Mexico and Alaska, but I figure this can be done. We could always hit up Venezuela and other non-Arab markets, if they give us a good price.

It may be just the threat of our doing this might make the Arab states sit up and take notice. We're Americans. We believe in a free and captialist economy. If we say, "Your prices are too high, bud. We're taking our business elsewhere" things might change in a heartbeat.

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.

I've been hearing about the "poor starving children of Africa" for the past fifty years. Sorry, if our "interference" hasn't helped by now, I don't think it's going to do so at all.

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.

The UN has been like a traffic cop on downers for decades. By the time they even yell, "Stop! Or we'll say stop again!" the damage has been done and the bones are bleaching in the sun. I'm a little tired of the UN looking to the Americans to put on their Superman (make that SuperPower) capes and go save the world from their own stupidity. Sorry, we're taking our toys and going home. We have Katrina victims still in temporary housing, a super volcano rumbling under Yellowstone, and at any minute California is going to slide into the sea. We've got some important problems at home to deal with.

I'll bet if our miliary handled the border and aided with drug trafficking, we could solve a few problems. Hell, I'd bet we could even sic 'em on the crack houses and watch the fireworks on days other than the 4th of July. Meth houses get condemned anyway, so let the military handle it in their usual efficient style. A rifle butt to the face could solve a lot of so-called criminals' attitude problems.

I'd even be willing to bet the Seabees could help Habitat for Humanity create whole new suburbs. After all, what's a military base to a Seabee but a suburb with businesses, airport, and housing?

10) All Americans must go to cha rm 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 ?

Beauty school my ass. That's how to learn to cut hair, give facials, etc. We have a billion dollar cosmetic industry as it is. If we're still ugly to foreigners, then they don't have to look at us or take our "interfering" money in the first place. We'll go to Disney World/Disney Land, visit our national parks, museums, and American culture. Hell, we can build our own damn pyramids, Taj Mahal, and Eiffel Towers. I'd rather spend my dollars where I don't have a fear of being shot, bombed, or kidnapped.

'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?' '

Yeah, they want a piece of us. They want a piece all right --without lube or romance. Sorry, I'm a captialist woman. I expect courtesy, good treatment, and a return for my time like dinner and a movie.

Courtesy, good treatment, and returns on our investments from foreign nations have been sorely lacking. This is not American captialism. I say we turn up our noses, turn around and go home with our money, technology, and medicine.

If they want to come over here and cause trouble, then let them feel the full hammer of Lady Liberty's defense of her children. Let it happen without mercy or restraint, but only when we're attacked, not to save a people who don't want us there in the first place.
