    Your childs education for the price of a cruise missle. At about a million a pop, every one of the hundred plus cruise missles that were lobbed inefectually into Libya could have bailed out hundreds of school districts that are facing the elimination of teachers in the face of tough economic times. A single cruise missle would pay close to 30 teacher salaries for a year in my state. If I thought that we were just using up old stock so to speak, I might not be so outraged but I know damn well that every single one of those missle's will be replaced.

    Why should God save the Queen? Does she retain a useful purpose? Or is she not like a fancy hood ornament on a Fiat?
    More of a bumper sticker on a Rolls Royce.

    And then there are European Americans. Like you.
    Thanks, but few consider the Brits Europeans. They cant figure out what you guys are. Celts with some Roman DNA, mixed with a thousand years of rapes from the Nordics? Sort of like kangaroos trapped on Australia.

    Maybe a lost eskimo floated in on a kayak a million years ago and started it all. Bred with the Neandrethrals and mountain sheep.

    But we have thousands of years of history Ballvalve. Celebrated by a Royal legacy that stretches back to relatively soon after the birth of Christ.

    And America does not. Because pretty soon, each and every one of you reaches a point in your family tree that was not *here*. Because your ancestors for one reason or another just could not cut it at *home*.

    Unless you own a casino of course.

    So that is why God Save the Queen.

    Or, more likely, just the opposite. Specifically, we left to work, to advance ourselves and our children, and to pursue opportunities other than The Dole. I suspect that you are here for the same reason. I am happy, with a great family and some degree of success. Perhaps you are homesick.

    So does [did] America. They were called Indians, mistakenly of course.

    Murdered and raped by a pack of smallpox and syphyllis ridden Italian, French and English morons. Its a dark day, the discovery in 1492. Flags should fly at half mast on Columbus day.

    Come sit on my huge flat top boulder above the 300' waterfall. Its filled with generations of grinding holes for acorns from a destroyed idyllic society.

    They would have been able to see from here the Grizzly bears feasting on Salmon in the valley below. Now, a Salmon would need a bus to get here.

    And perhaps a permit to spawn.

    'God save the world with birth control' He can do the Queen next.

    Hello All,

    I don't think that we even need to be in Libya. If it was not for the Oil then we would not be there.
    All it has done is raised the price of Oil, and killed innocent children.

    We need to be more concerned about our own problems, closer to home.

    Why not protect ourselves from the stuff going on the Mexico Border, Makes more sense to me.

    We can not afford to take care of our own people, Let alone the rest of the world.

    Charity starts at home...

    Have a great May Day.

    Don't forget...it takes hundred of blue collar high jobs to build those missiles. Wouldn't want to put all those folks out of work.

    Why blow stuff up in other county's, Then Go back and rebuild what we just blew up, At YOUR cost ?.

    Makes no sense at all.

    We need to save our Military for when we need them , To defend our Country.

    Mission Accomplished.

    That's what happens when the old powers get involved.

    America just can't do it like the Brits and the French!

    What mission? A guy that slept in a tent in New York a few months ago? You are all nuts.

    At least I doubt the Americans will be paying death benefits to Osama's family. We should bill them for the service, however.

    A little war is great training and testing, and more practical than shooting missiles in Nevada at old trucks.

    And if you read the fine print, the USA ran that absurd war anyway. Here comes Al Queda!

    You pretend to take all the glory, but you were not really there.

    It's like that in a lot of wars.

    Read the fine print and discover that the Brits and French discovered they could do nothing there without our information gathering machinery.

    They are having meetings about it today. We should charge them for the service.

    Why didnt the French Seals [Frogs?] shoot Quadafi in his tent in new york and save a few billion?
