Robin Williams has a plan

for FUN, a friend of mine e-mailed me this article that has been going around the Internet, and I thought that I would share it and see what you think about it.

The source article is located at[Robin Williams plan]


Robin Williams, wearing a shirt that says “I love New York” in Arabic.

Robin Williams’ plan…(Hard to argue with this logic!)
“I see a lot of people yelling for peace but I have not heard of a plan for peace. So, here’s one plan.”

1) “The US will apologize to the world for our “interference” in their affairs, past &present. You know, Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Tojo, Noriega, Milosevic, Hussein, and the rest of those “good ‘ole’ boys", we will never “interfere” again.
2) We will withdraw our troops from all over the world, starting with Germany, South Korea, the Middle East, and the Philippines. They don’t want us there. We would station troops at our borders. No one allowed sneaking through holes in the fence.
3) All illegal aliens have 90 days to get their affairs together and leave.We’ll give them a free trip home. After 90 days the remainder will be gathered up and deported immediately, regardless of whom or where they are. They’re illegal!!! France will welcome them.
4) All future visitors will be thoroughly checked and limited to 90 days unless given a special permit!!!! No one from a terrorist nation will be allowed in. If you don’t like it there, change it yourself and don’t hide here. Asylum would never be available to anyone. We don’t need any more cab drivers or 7-11 cashiers.
5) No foreign “students” over age 21. The older ones are the bombers. If they don’t attend classes, they get a “D” and it’s back home baby.
6) The US will make a strong effort to become self-sufficient energy wise. This will include developing nonpolluting sources of energy but will require a temporary drilling of oil in the Alaskan wilderness. The caribou will have to cope for a while.
7) Offer Saudi Arabia and other oil producing countries $10 a barrel for their oil. If they don’t like it, we go someplace else. They can go somewhere else to sell their production. (About a week of the wells filling up the storage sites would be enough.)
8) If there is a famine or other natural catastrophe in the world, we will not “interfere.” They can pray to Allah or whomever, for seeds, rain, cement or whatever they need. Besides most of what we give them is stolen or given to the army. The people who need it most get very little, if anything.
9) Ship the UN Headquarters to an isolated island someplace. We don’t need the spies and fair weather friends here. Besides, the building would make a good homeless shelter or lockup for illegal aliens.
10) All Americans must go to charm and beauty school. That way, no one can call us “Ugly Americans” any longer. The Language we speak is ENGLISH…learn it…or LEAVE…Now, isn’t that a winner of a plan?

“The Statue of Liberty is no longer saying “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses.” She’s got a baseball bat and she’s yelling, ‘you want a piece of me?”
Robin Williams may not have said this, as Jeff points out, however sometimes wouldn't be nice if someone did?

Robin Williams is right on target in every point. Now, if we could get the powers that be in D.C. to pay attention. RIIIGHT!!!!

He is just saying what most of us believe. Now, as scottiebill stated, we need to get the politians to stop looking out for themselves and start looking out for us. GOOD FRGGING LUCK!!! We need to vote in people who are not going to screw us, but most are so crooked it is a challenge to find one who is not.

Thanks Jeff.

I know that these items that are normally not true, but you have to admit that sometimes they say what we all thinking.

thanks for the link.
(quotes from Jeffs link)

The Statue of Liberty is no longer saying 'Give me your poor, your tired, your huddled masses.' She's got a baseball bat and she's yelling, 'You want a piece of me?'" — Robin Williams.
The 'Robin Williams' attribution for the final item was interpreted as applying to the list as a whole, so now the entire piece circulates as 'the Robin Williams plan.'

I think we need to elect everday citizens instead of career politicians. They are all corrupt at this point. It is a country "of the people, by the people and for the people", isn't it? Anybody want to be Governor? Or President?

I think Laura is onto something here. There ought to be some sort of law or regulation that says that anyone with a net worth of say $500,000.00, and this is an arbitrary number, is banned from running for the U.S. Senate or the U.S. House. And, if at any time during their term in office, that net worth passes the $500,000.00 limit, even by $1.00, they are out and the governor of their state, with an approval by the state legislature, will have to appoint a replacement, subject to reelection at the next election cycle. And, contributions from people like George Soros or his ilk, who want to buy elections, would be strictly forbidden. Campaign contributions would be limited to $100.00 per contributor.

Would this work? I don't know, but it would sure have the effect of getting rid of jerks like Teddy Kennedrunk and Nancy Peolsi and John Kerry, and Gordon Smith, who flies a Mexican flag in his office.

Mybe then we could have a country of the people, by the people, and for the people, as Linclon said, instead for a country of the rich, by the rich, and for the rich, and to hell with us common folk.

At to the above plan:
Bill and Hilary Clinton were worth zilch until the were OUT of the White House. Why they were so poor, they had to take the funiture, art work, etc. with them when they left! Under the "No Net Worth Over $500,000 Plan", George Washington could not have been President. Maybe it's term limits we're looking for...

Frisian, I'm talking about modern times with the "$500,000. net worth limit". The extremely wealthy, for the most part, have taken over the government. And there doesn't seem to be any kind of let up in sight.

My suggestion would take a Constitutional amendment. That would not be allowed to pass because of the likes of Kerry, Kennedrunk, Byrd, Pelosi (whose family owns a very large winery in California), and others.

Scottiebill and Laura,
I totally agree that we need everyday people in office. I was trying to make the point that wealth, or lack of wealth, is not a sign of character. (Ronald Reagan was a wealthy man, with character. The Clintons had no wealth going into the White House, but enough said there). However, it has been displayed over and over again that power corrupts.
As far as regulating who can run for office, or how much one can contribute, just remember the McCain-Feingold Campaign Reform Bill. This bill has just made a bigger mess. Good Conservatives don't want too much regulation. Let's just push for term limits. That way more of us can have a turn!

He's as fruity as a nutcake, but he does have his moments of clarity and this is one of them. Normally, I wouldn't agree with him on many other issues, but we have to do something to stop all these damn illegals from coming here. If they want come here legally, fine, let them. I would welcome them if they did that, but they should have soldiers in Humvees with night vision goggles and orders to shoot to kill if they catch anyone trying to cross illegally. 12 million illegals in a country of 250 million is way too many.

First of all the picture wasn't showing in the email so here's a direct link to the whole thing:

http://www.snopes.com/politics/soapbox/williams.asp

read the whole page and you'll find out it wasn't Robin Williams plan,

it was an anonymous coward who tried to stick it to Robin.


now that most of the picture is clear please let me add a couple of thoughts if i may to those

of you who are emailing it around proudly.



1 & 2)

The US has never interfered in any country matter with good intentions in mind it's all politicts

baby and a race for staying in the lead, thats the a b c of politics which our well educated

writer obvesiously knows so much about.

YO homey go visit Iraq those people love you for saving them and are 'dying' to meet you.



3 & 4 & 5)

"illegal aliens"; "future visitors"; "foreign students", they all have a slightly diffrent association

in your history books, i believe they are referred to as "pioneers", only difference is that these

"future pioneers" haven't got alot of indiands left to slaughter.



6 & 7)

"The US will make a strong effort to become self-sufficient energy-wise."

"Offer Saudi Arabia and other oil-producing countries $10 a barrel for their oil."

ha. ha. good one ;)

i'd feel silly if i comment on this, no comment.



8)

"If there is a famine or other natural catastrophe in the world, we will not 'interfere.'"

interfere in the lives of those unlucky people who die in your own unstable country.

and i quote:

"Criticism was prompted largely by televised images of visibly shaken and frustrated political

leaders, and of residents who remained in New Orleans without water, food or shelter."

Hurricane Katrina.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Criticism_of_government_response_to_Hurricane_Katrina



9)

at least the UN stays behind to clean up the table after you eat off of it, thats the way

it works and they shall remain your royal servants for as long as you stay royal.



10)

1.i agree.

2.” She’s got a baseball bat and she’s yelling, ‘you want a piece of me?”

all your women do that.





Robin Williams is a great man who did somthing to stand against racism, unlike some people

who sit at home all day and write nonsense and email it to their friends.



Furthermore, apparently we came up with some conclusions about our anonymous coward

writer:

1. well educated

2. knows politics.

3. knows history.

4. (6 & 7) Harsh on decisions

5. (8) interested in peoples welfare



all in favor say aye for the United States of America's new president!
