#1 Excellent proposal's but, not on NO, NO will never be revived again. Implement the proposal's next door, Batttton Roooo.

#2 Just in case you didn't notice: You've just summed up quite a few recipes to ruin the U.S. sconomy.

Think twice.

Oh btw, nobody is working 30 hours a week here and the only guy who took all August off... well you know.

#3 TGA, Dubya gets a lot more done when he's on "vacation" in Crawford than Bubba did when he was at the Oral Office getting serviced by the interns.

#4 I don't have a problem with the foreign policy stuff, but the economics sounds like something Kim Jong-Il cooked up.

#5 Phil I know, it was somewhat tongue in cheek. The economic proposals are indeed lunatic.

#6 What lunatic dreamed up this pile of steaming crap? "Vanderleun" has to be a pen name, right? I mean, it ends with "loon".

#7 Read the rest of the post at the link ... it will become clearer.

This is a Modest Proposal. Remember your Jonathan Swift and then go read him to get the satirical point.

#8 If it weren't for the last sentence, this could have been a serious proposal from Pat Buchanon.

#9 In case you slept through World Literature in high school:

Jonathan Swift's "A Modest Proposal" was one of the most ferocious satires ever written, meant to give a well-deserved black eye to the English absentee landlords who held estates in Ireland, in the 18th C.

(Sister Jeremy would roll in her grave if she knew I just wrote that run-on sentence).

#10 I could see only two men in world history who could boldly implement such an ambitious plan, Alexander The Great and Adolf Hitler! Everyone else would subject themselves to the politics of the day!
