A possible Peace 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.

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 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 are 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...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?'

ABSOLUTELY! I fully believe we need to begin a more protectionist philosophy in regards to our borders and our people. We need to take care of our own people first.

If you don't think we have the power to drive oil prices down you are kidding yourself. The oil companies (US oil companies) are keeping there capacity down in order to drive the price up. It is not just our ridiculous uneccessary dependancy on the OPEC countries.

"NEW YORK (Reuters) - ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP - news), the No. 3 U.S. oil company, on Wednesday reported quarterly profit surged 89 percent, surpassing Wall Street forecasts, driven by record oil prices and sharply higher refining margins."

Nuff Said. :mad:

"Robin Williams' Plan for Peace-Fiction!

Summary of the eRumor
A list of various ingredients of a peace proposal involving the United States around the world. It's humorous in tone and attributed to comedian Robin Williams.


The Truth
There is no evidence this originated with Robin Williams.
We're not sure where it came from, but the initial versions of it did not mention Robin Williams.
That was added along the way.

I actually like most of what this thing says. I had not heard of it until today - luckily, few people forward me this stuff (at my request).

Most oil pricing is set by OPEC (Organization for the Petroleum Exporting Countries - Algeria, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Libya, Nigeria, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Venezuela - you know...[I]those countries). For all the oil producers not in OPEC, they just follow suit because it is usually in their best interest. They are like the mob (IMO). Ok, they do keep oil prices stable - critical to large infrastructure budgeting (ie. a lot of companies could go belly up if prices hot through the roof one day). This way they are just high all the time... :(

I still don't get how Indonesia got on the list.

I know this is week (news paper link), but it's the best answer I can give concerning oil prices (btw - it's not Bush's buddies in Texas setting them):

mork would rather be paid millions to get sweaty and do jokes about bush not being able to run the country due to the report that he nearly choked on a saltine. I knew he wouldn't write this kinda stuff
