I got that joke, you guys.

Interesting the Euros want china to build bigger but broke the Balkins down and are trying to break the Russian sphere down as well.

Fueling an arms race between Pakistan and India makes it easier for China to become dominant in the Far East.

Next it will be fear China. Then next it will be lets have world govt
for total protection from super-powers.

Woj scared me at first telling me to sold out, but I told him I'm not enticed by the goods delivered by the Mickey Mouse culture. Roman baths may have been good (particularly if scrubbed by a lady) but Mickey is nothing but fake culture. Only the fools can fall for that.

This Cultural Imperialism is no joke though, for that's the way they control the young of the world. Whatever we offer must be stronger and better than that. That's why I came with the Kielbasa Revolution, Polish sausage but we can use any other name since Woj is a vegetarian.:cheers:

I just saw on TV something that really saddened me: The Inuits of the
Arctic show the highest pollution in the world. How come? Well, the
pollution from the South--yeah, that filthy stuff left behind by the
dinosaur--evaporates and travels to the North where the cold air makes
it fall. Then their children are breastfed these chemicals, spewed out
by the lions parading in their SUVs and motorboats. They are asking the
world to listen but nobody gives a damn, at least not those who can
change things.

The Revolution is not something for the South, it's also for the North. ;)

What can the Ants do but REVOLUTION???

EVOLVE OR ELSE!

Once upon a time lived a race of dinosaurs whose violence and appetite alarmed everybody... One day a Little Ant, tired of feeling stepped upon, and worried about her cooperative enterprise, came up to the Americanus Raptor--the biggest dinosaur of them all--and asked: "Why you eat and eat everything in your path? Why don't you slim down? Why can't we little animals at least have our own way?" Then the dinosaur, blowing the Little Ant away, shouted: "Bigger is better, so get lost!"

The Little Ant, then, gathered the whole cooperative and said: "Comrades, our world is being threatened by the dinosaurs, so..." And at that precise moment the Earth was hit by a big ball of fire, destroying all but the small animals...

I always knew this: The US/UK must have known of the smuggling going on in Iraq. The UN was no more than a smoke-screen for the puppeteer.;)

Mr Annan becomes embroiled in the oil-for-food scandal:

The US and Britain have rejected allegations by UN chief Kofi Annan that they turned a blind eye to oil smuggling by Saddam Hussein's regime. Mr Annan had suggested the two had inadequately policed UN sanctions against Iraq, enabling the regime to earn huge amounts in illegal deals.

British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw said the charges were "inaccurate", while Washington was also dismissive.

The UN has itself been under fire over the so-called oil-for-food programme. The $60bn (??32bn) programme allowed Saddam Hussein's Iraq to sell oil in order to buy civilian goods - including medicine - and therefore ease the impact of UN sanctions imposed after Iraq's 1990 invasion of Kuwait.

Actually, the bulk of the money Saddam Hussein made was from smuggling under the 'watchful' eyes of the Americans and British.

US Senate investigators have alleged that the Iraqi regime received some $4bn (??2.13bn) in illegal payments from oil companies involved in the programme.* But this figure is dwarfed by the $14bn (??7.5bn) that allegedly came from "sanctions-busting" - illegally selling oil to neighbouring states such as Jordan and Turkey.

"The bulk of the money that Saddam [Hussein] made came out of smuggling outside the oil-for-food programme, and it was on the American and British watch," Mr Annan said. Iraq made billions of dollars from illegal oil sales and bribes. He added, ". . . they were (US and Britain) the ones who knew exactly what was going on, and that the countries themselves decided to close their eyes to smuggling to Turkey and Jordan because they were allies."
--(edited from an article by the BBC)

*This leaves out the fact that the the oil company bribes came from corporations with very close ties to the administration, e.g. Chevron and other Texas based companies. It looks like the real scandal has come home to roost!

The young have grown to respect the cultural Imperialists.

Howdy DonQ:
The Romans learned to respect those who trounced them in Britain. Most of Britain was 'conquered' by trade treaties not by military. The military were stationed around to protect the trade
lines. Like Nato troops in the Balkins were gas and oil are piped through.
The Romans had to send their best generals to Britain to match the British who resisted the Romans.
The Picts in Scotland were too hot for them so they built a wall
and called it quits.

The Romans made sausages out of Poles. Thats why Poles wont eat meat. Thats why they joined the catholic church in their millions so they could eat fish on fridays for protein.

A three-year-old Marxist government was overthrown in 1973 by a dictatorial military regime led by Augusto PINOCHET, who ruled until a freely elected president was installed in 1990. Sound economic policies, maintained consistently since the 1980s, have contributed to steady growth and have helped secure the country's commitment to democratic and representative government. Chile has increasingly assumed regional and international leadership roles befitting its status as a stable, democratic nation.

If Berlusconi, Bushes puppet will resign today I confirm that Miracle took place.:)
Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice renewed her criticism of Russia's democratic record Wednesday and said President Vladimir Putin had too much personal power.

Rice, on her first visit to Moscow as Washington's top diplomat, also said the United States would be watching the outcome of oil magnate Mikhail Khodorkovsky's trial "to see what (it) says about the rule of law in Russia."
Her remarks, which included charges that Russia had no independent television channels, were unlikely to reach most Russians since all leading TV networks failed to report them. http://www.reuters.c...storyID=8237250

Avoided the AMT
Their Tax Returns Highlight
Quirks of Controversial Law;

On tax day last week, millions of Americans had paid more in taxes for 2004 because of the alternative minimum tax. President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney weren't among them.
Their returns for 2004 showed zero on line 44, the line for reporting the AMT. So why not the Bushes and the Cheneys? The short answer is that their regular tax worked out to more than the amount they would have owed under the AMT. But their returns offer a vivid and prominent picture of the quirks that do -- and don't -- trigger the AMT.
Among those taxpayers most likely to get hit by the AMT are people with big families who pay large amounts of state and local taxes. Deductions for state and local taxes aren't allowed under the AMT. Neither are deductions for "exemptions" for filers and their dependents.
The Bushes and Cheneys didn't fit either profile in 2004. They didn't pay enough in state and local taxes to trigger the AMT, and neither family was entitled to any deduction for exemptions because of their high income.
On the other hand, deductions for charitable contributions -- something both couples claimed -- are allowed in calculating the AMT. And most income from municipal bonds, an item that accounted for a large chunk of Vice President and Mrs. Cheney's income last year, is tax-exempt under both the regular and AMT systems. (The president and Mrs. Bush contributed $77,785 to churches and charitable organizations in 2004. The Cheneys donated $303,354 to charity.)
Although the AMT originally was intended to target the wealthiest taxpayers, today most of the people it hits earn substantially less than do the Bushes and the Cheneys. The greatest number of taxpayers affected by it have adjusted gross incomes of $200,000 to $500,000, according to Len Burman, a former Treasury official and now co-director of the Tax Policy Center in Washington, D.C. Many people with larger incomes wind up paying more under the regular system, where the top rate is now 35%. The AMT's top rate is 28%.
The Bushes reported adjusted gross income of $784,219 for tax year 2004. Their taxable income, after deductions, was $672,788, and their federal income taxes totaled $207,307. The White House said the Bushes' 2004 income included the president's salary (listed as $397,065 on their return) plus investment income from the trusts in which his and the First Lady's assets are held.
The Cheneys reported adjusted gross income of more than $1.7 million, plus tax-exempt interest of $426,098 from state and local municipal bonds. The Cheneys' taxable income was slightly more than $1.3 million. In 2004, they paid $393,518 in federal taxes.
A common partisan complaint lodged against the AMT is that it penalizes residents of so-called blue states, which went to the Democrats in the last presidential election, and favors those in red states. That is because many states in the former category -- including New York and California -- have higher state and local taxes than do those in the latter category. Several states that were "red" in 2004, including Florida and Texas, have no state income tax at all.
In fact, if the Bushes had lived in a high-tax area such as New York City, they would have been hit by the AMT, according to calculations by one New York accountant. He says this would have reflected the much larger amount of state and local taxes they would have had to pay.
The Bushes did take a number of deductions, but they weren't large enough to trigger the AMT. The Bushes deducted $2,186 in general sales taxes for 2004, reflecting a tax-law change that gives people who itemize the choice of deducting either their state and local income taxes or their sales taxes. They also deducted $22,158 in "ad valorem" taxes, which a White House spokeswoman said reflected taxes on the president's ranch in Crawford, Texas.
A White House spokeswoman said the reason the president and Mrs. Bush didn't owe AMT for 2004 was that they owed more under the regular tax.

(Condoleezza) Rice informs Russians that US will inspect Russian nuclear facilities, orders Putin in 2008 to leave the office and that Byelorussia expects orange revolution. Kommiersant.

TUS comfortably defeated a call to the U.N.'s top human rights body on Thursday to launch a probe into alleged violations at Guantanamo Bay.
UN Commission on Human Rights rejected by 22 votes to 8, with 23 abstentions, a resolution brought by Cuba calling for the setting up of a special U.N. investigator for the detention center at a U.S. naval base on its territory.
European Union states on the 53-state commission sided with US in rejecting the resolution, saying that Washington was already in discussions with existing U.N. investigators about possible visits to the prison. http://www.reuters.c....com/home.jhtml
US called the move by Cuba "ironic," ..
U.S. delegate Lino Piedra said that the U.S. judiciary system was already showing its independence in monitoring respect for prisoners' rights there.
Dutch ambassador Ian de Jong, speaking for the EU, said that the bloc saw no need for a separate investigation because the US was already in discussions with the U.N. about allowing special rights investigators to visit Guantanamo.
Canada abstained in the vote for a similar reason. But both Ottawa's delegate Ian Ferguson and de Jong said that they hoped Washington would agree to the U.N. visits to Guantanamo soon.
The commission concludes its annual six-week session on Friday. -

I can wait when something will go wrong. :)

to maintain democracy ; it means right to select the tooth paste from many tastes but to elect president one from both :)
for example Bush and Kerry or Blair and Howard.

As long people can only vote for parties and not for the man deserves status quo called democracy not only in US or UK but in whole world.
People deserve their leaders. :)
