Goodness gracious

Attention Europe!

Please, do not get sucked into the whirlwind created by the scores of people who work for Obama. Please, do not get caught up in the mindlessness our media has developed that leads to drooling and yelping Obama's name endlessly while gushing like a school girl pining for her first crush. They felt this way about Clinton, and well...

Obama is full of empty words, and has done absolutely nothing to show that he'd be a good leader. Sure, he reads speeches from text really well, but when he has to think on his feet....not so much, because he does not have a clearly set belief on anything. Truly. I listen to candidates objectively. Trust me, I don't like McCain much, either.

Flava flav sums it best in the "chorus" to THIS song.

Just spoutin' my beliefs as per the 1st Amendment, Blogger peeps.

Europe is not listening.

They cannot because they are so plugged into socialism and appeasement.

I wish that we had a better choice than either McCain or Obama. McCain and Obama represent the same old political status quo and that status quo has gotten the nation into a mess !

I'd like to say we give a flying fig for who is El Presidente, but we don't, but you've only got yourselves to blame....Reagan, Clinton and two Bushes.....hardly paragons of virtue and intellect! We might just like being Pinkos, by the way.

If you lot hadn't ditched the Queen, maybe you'd be better off given that we have a little more experience in democracy! LOL.

Noddy said...

Oh yeah, I forgot this. Need I say more.

My comments were more about people who listen to the media. If you read the article, you'll see that they are fawning over him and the "legend" rather than the reality.

As do I. That's why in the primaries, I did not vote for McCain.

No president is perfect. I'm not saying any one person is. However, the way that Obama is being worshiped is a little unnerving. Also, people are listening to his catch-phrases, and listening to the lack of depth.

Btw., I believe our experiment in democracy was a result of a monarchy, not a democracy. Just sayin'.

Don't worry, I know there are plenty of Europeans that have good, solid minds and think for themselves.

My concern was about what I said to Admiral...the people who seem to be treating him like the second coming. There are lots of Americans doing that here and to see anyone behaving like that over a potential leader of a country (no matter the political leanings) is scary.

Noddy - You should give a "flying fig" about who our President is, especially since Great Britain is currently being taken over by Muslim extremists. Of course, you can't offend their delicate sensibilities, so you are all quiet as a field mouse about it.

Of course, when you folks experience another 7/7 - and it's coming sooner than you think - maybe you'll rethink your "leadership."

Then again, maybe not.

Oh, and for the record, we ditched the King, not the queen.

You guys sure bite the hook! Being serious for a moment, here's a view from over the pond.

We don't have that much interest in who is elected because we have no say or influence. There are far more powerful lobby groups circling DC.

The interest over here was in the run off between Obama and Ms Clinton because they were black and female respectively.

Ask most of us over here who the RP candidate is and most will glaze over! McCain genuinely worries those of us that know of him because he appears old (and old fashioned) and a bit of a 'bomb the bastards' type.

Obama appears shallow and a sound bite specialist to an embarrassing degree.

Most of us over hereabouts would have been rooting (can I say that?!!) for Hilary since she came across as level headed and a good weeper!

Personally, I'd look hard at who Obama and McCain have around them as advisers etc. for the 'safest' pairs of hands controlling the puppet.

..... and Wyatt, by George you are quite correct, but what I meant was that had you not gained your independence, you would have a Queen today.

Up my way our little Country appears to be moving towards its own independent state if not State, but I believe we will still keep the crown in place as, perhaps having seen what's happened elsewhere, and here where too much 'power' was in he hands of one exalted leader (cf Thatcher/Blair) the thought of Republicanism is too much.

As to scaremongering about Islam and another 7/7 or 9/11,it is just that kind of intemperate voicing of what is essentially bigotry which helps no-one. Islam is a major world religion, largely peaceful, but with belligerent radicals amongst their flock (just the same can be said of Judaism and Christianity for instance) and entitled to 'grow' in areas its adherent diaspora have settled. Does that not mirror the foundation of the States or do you feel it should be exclusively WASP?

Anyway, here's today's anagram.

An Email from my English friends......

To the citizens of the United States of America:

In light of your failure in recent years to nominate competent candidates for President of the USA and thus to govern yourselves, we hereby give notice of the revocation of your independence, effective immediately.

Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will resume monarchical duties over all states, commonwealths, and territories (except Kansas, which she does not fancy).

Your new Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, will appoint a Governor for America without the need for further elections. Congress and the Senate will be disbanded. A questionnaire may be circulated next year to determine whether anyone noticed.

To aid in the transition to a British Crown Dependency, the following rules are introduced with immediate effect:

You should look up 'revocation' in the Oxford English Dictionary.

1 - Then look up aluminium, and check the pronunciation guide. You will be amazed at just how wrongly you have been pronouncing it.

2 - The letter 'U' will be reinstated in words such as 'colour', 'favour' and 'neighbour.' Likewise, you will learn to spell 'doughnut' without skipping half the letters, and the suffix '-ize' will be replaced by the suffix '-ise'.

3 - Using the same twenty-seven words interspersed with filler noises such as 'like' and 'you know' is an unacceptable and inefficient form of communication. There is no such thing as US English. We will let Microsoft know on your behalf. The Microsoft spell- checker will be adjusted to take account of the reinstated letter 'u' and the elimination of -ize.

4 - July 4th will no longer be celebrated as a holiday.

5 - Therefore, you will no longer be allowed to own or carry anything more dangerous than a vegetable peeler. A permit will be required if you wish to carry a vegetable peeler in public.

6 - All intersections will be replaced with roundabouts, and you will start driving on the left with immediate effect. At the same time, you will go metric with immediate effect and without the benefit of conversion tables. Both roundabouts and metrication will help you understand the British sense of humour.

7 - The Former USA will adopt UKprices on petrol (which you have been calling gasoline)-roughly $11/US gallon. Get used to it.

8 - You will learn to make real chips. Those things you call French fries are not real chips, and those things you insist on calling potato chips are properly called crisps. Real chips are thick cut, fried in animal fat, and dressed not with catsup but with vinegar.

9 - The cold tasteless stuff you insist on calling beer is not actually beer at all. Henceforth, only proper British Bitter will be referred to as beer, and European brews of known and accepted provenance will be referred to as Lager.
South African beer is also acceptable as they are pound for pound the greatest sporting Nation on earth and it can only be due to the beer. They are also part of the British Commonwealth- see what it did for them.
American brands will be referred to as Near-Frozen Gnat's Urine, so that all can be sold without risk of further confusion.

10 - Hollywood will be required occasionally to cast English actors as good guys. Hollywood will also be required to cast English actors to English characters.

11 - You will cease playing American football. There is only one kind of proper football; you call it soccer. Those of you brave enough will, in time, be allowed to play rugby (which has some similarities to American football, but does not involve stopping for a rest every twenty seconds or wearing full kevlar body armour like a bunch of nancies). Don't try Rugby- the South Africans and Kiwis will thrash you, like they regularly thrash us.

12 - Further, you will stop playing baseball. It is not reasonable to host an event called the World Series for a game which is not played outside of America. You will learn cricket, and we will let you face the South Africans first to take the testing out of their deliveries.

13 - Daily Tea Time begins promptly at 4 pm with proper cups, with saucers, and never mugs, with high quality biscuits (cookies) and cakes; plus strawberries (with cream) when in season.

God save the Queen.
