3. France - France feigns true love for us, but thumbs their nose in our direction every chance they get. Were it not for United States theyíd most likely still be goose-stepping, but their memories appear to have dimmed considerably regarding their fairly recent past. Even today, Iím convinced that if France were attacked first thing theyíd do is place a frantic call to United States to enlist our help. And if I were President Bush, Iíd tell them that I was busy eating lunch and to go take it up with United Nations. Then Iíd finish my sandwich.
4. Squabbles in Senate between Democrats and Republicans - Honestly, Iíve never understood why will of 40 people overrides will of 50 plus people. Iíve felt this way through both Democratic and Republican regimes of past, and Iíll continue to feel this way on out into future. Maybe we should base each senatorís salary on number of issues they tackle during each session of Congress, perhaps that would fire a few of íem up and prompt them into doing something that would help us all. Watching these grown men and women argue about how long they can argue with each other over issues makes about as much sense as strapping on of a chastity belt before entering a house of ill repute, and thatís me being really nice about it.
Okay, that should be more than enough of this for awhile. To me, talkiní about Elvis, women, The Brotherhood, and hamdogs is far more interesting than writing about this kind of stuff. So folks, donít ask me to do this again, or, if a lot of yíall do, I swear that Iíll write a column somewhere down road filled with interesting quotes from some of Gerhardt Schroederís greatest speeches!
