This One Has Made The Rounds..........

........but I like it.

ONLY AN AMERICAN ENGINEER

Three guys -- a Canadian farmer, Osama bin Laden, and an American engineer are walking together one day. They come across the proverbial lamp and a Genie pops out of it.

"I will give each of you one wish, which is three wishes total," says the Genie.

The Canadian says, "I am a farmer, my dad was a farmer, and my son will also farm. I want the land to be forever fertile in Canada ."

Pooooof! With a blink of the Genie's eye, the land in Canada was forever made fertile for farming.

Osama bin Laden was amazed, so he said, "I want an impenetrable wall around Afghanistan, Iraq and Iran with all believers of Mohammad inside and all Jews, Americans, and other infidels forever outside our precious state.

"Pooooof! Again, with the blink of the Genie's eye, there was a huge wall around those countries.

The American engineer asks, "I am very curious. Please tell me more about this wall."

The Genie explains, "Well, its 5000 feet high, 500 feet thick and completely surrounds those countries........ It's virtually impenetrable.

Now, what is your wish?"

The American engineer smiles and says, "Fill it with water."

Pooooof!

WORLD PEACE!!

***************************************
Also, tonight on "The Colbert Report" (yeah, he's a mocking Lib, but he makes me laugh).
He ran a clip of Sen. Clinton stating "... if this President does not get us out of Iraq, when I am President, I will!". Colbert says "Well, when you're President, Senator Clinton, we'll be able to bring the troops home on flying pigs, provided it's not too cold for them to fly what with hell having frozen over! (applause) Maybe, we can hold the welcome back parade on highly improbably day!" Of course Colbert is being derisive....but I laughed out loud. Then he had that crazy former Senator Gravel on.....what a loon!

I see the point. If we've learned one thing from Bush it's that viewing others as the Enemy in a world of black and white where we get to play Cowboy helps more than anything to move the world toward peace. Just wish we could have another four more years of this.

All I am saying... is give peace a chance... But I guess they won't change the constitution to see what another Bush term could do to help spread democracy around the world. Shucks.

In a nice world, peace would have been an option. In an ideal world, Bush 2 wouldn't have gone into Iraq. Bush 1 would have or at least Billy Clinton would have. 8 years to deal with Saddam and he spent all of his energy getting our troops killed in Somalia and providing support to the UN in Yugoslavia, but that's not playing choices.

At least if Giuliani gets in I know that we won't be placating terrorists and fundamentalists who are willing to martyr themselves to end us for their cause.

I know, I know, you're all mad at "W". Well, sometimes, so am I. But he was damn sure better than the alternatives available at the time.
