Yea, Yea ... Bush, Clinton, Obama, McCain ... decades of mistakes in the misguided attempt to relieve suffering, famine and injustice have taken a toll no doubt, (btw ... this is my blog, not your opportunity to spout you fav ideological bile I really don't care).

I have always felt as the folowing author.

We rarely get a chance to see another country's editorial about the USA This is an excerpt from a Romanian Newspaper. The article was written by Mr. Cornel Nistorescu and published under the title "C"ntarea Americii, (meaning "Ode To America") in the Romanian newspaper Evenimentulzilei "The Daily Event" or "News of the Day" in response to the 9/11 terrorist attack.

An Ode to America

Why are Americans so united? They would not resemble one another even if you painted them all one color! They speak all the languages of the world and form an astonishing mixture of civilizations and religious beliefs.

Still, the American tragedy turned three hundred million people into a hand put on the heart. Nobody rushed to accuse the White House, the Army, or the Secret Service that they are only a bunch of losers. Nobody rushed to empty their bank accounts. Nobody rushed out onto the streets nearby to gape about.

Instead the Americans volunteered to donate blood and to give a helping hand. After the first moments of panic, they raised their flag over the smoking ruins, putting on T-shirts, caps and ties in the colors of the national flag. They placed flags on buildings and cars as if in every place and on every car a government official or the president was passing. On every occasion, they started singing: "God Bless America !"

I watched the live broadcast and rerun after rerun for hours listening to the story of the guy who went down one hundred floors with a woman in a wheelchair without knowing who she was, or of the Californian hockey player, who gave his life fighting with the terrorists and prevented the plane from hitting a target that could have killed other hundreds or thousands of people.

How on earth were they able to respond united as one human being? Imperceptibly, with every word and musical note, the memory of some turned into a modern myth of tragic heroes. And with every phone call, millions and millions of dollars were put into a collection aimed at rewarding not a man or a family, but a spirit, which no money can buy.

What on earth can unite the Americans in such a way? Their land? Their history? Their economic Power? Money?

I tried for hours to find an answer, humming songs and murmuring phrases with the risk of sounding commonplace, I thought things over, I reached but only one conclusion... Only freedom can work such miracles.

Cornel Nistorescu

In conclusion: It is the simple fact of the existence of a free people that is the threat. Now Vote, I don't care how you vote. Just don't just set there on the couch and tell me you have rights cus its a free country, just freekin stand up, and BE Free. Vote! That particular right has already be paid for!

In Blood!

Your welcome.

like patrick henry said, give me liberty or give me death.
i'm not that radical. liberty can be a slave to follow too.
i'd rather stay alive. do as you like is anarchy.
my family is one of anarchists. they have been
tamed. domesticated. this is not wild kingdom brought to you by mutual of omaha
and i don't want to live in wild animal park, escondido, ca.
i voted for peace and freedom party today, not the war and slavery parties.
absentee ballot. oongawa.

I support our men and women in uniform. As a former veterans employment counsellor, I had met many of them and they have issues in many cases not unlike Viet Nam vets. They are going to need a lot of support and help in dealing with it and readjusting. They did what the nation asked and should be respected for it regardless of one's feeling on the Iraq war. They are not responsible for it.

But the Bush approach to foreign policy is why we are held in the lowest regard in history. When you invade a smaller country for no reason, people in other countries tend to resent it. The Russians are feeling the same heat since the invasion of Georgia.
