Bloviating Zeppelin: Yes, The World IS This Stupid

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Yes, The World IS This Stupid


With friends and results like this, we should care one whit about what "the world" thinks of the United States?

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Seven years after the Sept. 11 attacks, there is no consensus outside the United States that Islamist militants from al Qaeda were responsible, according to an international poll published Wednesday.

The survey of 16,063 people in 17 nations found majorities in only nine countries believe al Qaeda was behind the attacks on New York and Washington that killed about 3,000 people in 2001.

U.S. officials squarely blame al Qaeda, whose leader Osama bin Laden has boasted of organizing the suicide attacks by his followers using hijacked commercial airliners.

On average, 46 percent of those surveyed said al Qaeda was responsible, 15 percent said the U.S. government, 7 percent said Israel and 7 percent said some other perpetrator. One in four people said they did not know who was behind the attacks.

Oh, the money I could save if but I were the President of the United States.

Add to that idiocy the point that tthe world wants Obama as President. Truly, the collective IQ in this world is rapidly approaching that of a single radish.

This is an insult to the common radish. I proffer the lowly nematode -- wait, perhaps too intelligent.

Doesn't matter, not one little bit, we'll still rush to the aid of these assholes, we'll still send them BILLIONS of OUR dollars, all the while we have folks of our own that need help, or a tax break for that matter...

Unless it's opinion agreeable to a country-centered American like me:

~An Ode to America~
by Mr. Cornel Nistorescu and published under the title "C"ntarea Americii"

Why are Americans so united? They would not resemble one another even if you painted them all one color! They speak all the languages of the world and form an astonishing mixture of civilizations and religious beliefs. Still, the American tragedy turned three hundred million people into a hand put on the heart.

Nobody rushed to accuse the White House, the army, and the secret services that they are only a bunch of losers. Nobody rushed to empty their bank accounts. Nobody rushed out onto the streets nearby to gape about. The Americans volunteered to donate blood and to give a helping hand.

After the first moments of panic, they raised their flag over the smoking ruins, putting on T-shirts, caps and ties in the colors of the national flag.

They placed flags on buildings and cars as if in every place and on every car a government official or the president was passing.

On every occasion, they started singing their traditional song: "God Bless America!" I watched the live broadcast and rerun after rerun for hours listening to the story of the guy who went down one hundred floors with a woman in a wheelchair without knowing who she was, or of the Californian hockey player, who gave his life fighting with the terrorists and prevented the plane from hitting a target that could have killed other hundreds or thousands of people.

How on earth were they able to respond united as one human being? Imperceptibly, with every word and musical note, the memory of some turned into a modern myth of tragic heroes. And with every phone call, millions and millions of dollars were put in a collection aimed at rewarding not a man or a family, but a spirit, which no money can buy.

What on earth can unite the Americans in such a way? Their land? Their galloping history? Their economic Power? Money? I tried for hours to find an answer, humming songs and murmuring phrases with the risk of sounding commonplace.

I thought things over, but I reached only one conclusion ... Only freedom can work such miracles.

I will say what I said on Robert's blog, the main reason why they want Obama is quite obviously, because it will result in a weaker America.

Coming from Singapore, I once saw a news report about “increasing number of Obama supporters in Singapore”. Well, fuck those bastards I thought, and changed my IM pic to McCain’s campaign promotional image.
