[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Sarah is a Pats fan : I asked nicely to please put a :^) after any post that shouldn't be taken seriously. Yes, I am ware of the Amero proposal. After the formation of the EU, and the adoption of the Euro by many of the EU countries, it should be considered quite logical that others elsewhere begin "exploring" the concept for other geographical regions. Whether or not their white papers and speeches lead to anything is another matter. Some member of the CFR writes a white paper on the Amero and makes an argument for a single NA trading block. There is nothing malicious in that. People frequently propose all sorts of ideas. Where you go off the deep end is thinking that this is an official agenda by Cheney and Obama to dissolve the US and create a superstate. Do you believe that all members of the CFR think alike? Do you really think they could go this far without tremendous public debate and referendums? There is a great divide between a mere trading treaty and a "super state". Even in the EU, there is a common EU parliament that EU countries elect members for. There is a rotating EU presidency. There is an EU central bank. All of the EU countries had to hold public referendums on both joining the EU, and adopting the Euro. None of the EU infrastructure was built overnight by some some obscure group. It was all built after great public debate and numerous public votes. So I'm going to sleep pretty good tonight. Somehow, I don't think I'm going to wake up in the morning to some new country where I need to pay for a burger with the Amero. Real football started today. Unless you insult my mother I'm done with this topic.

I don't vote, don't blog about politics, don't care one way or another; I'm as close to being a nihilist as you'll find. I figure the world is going to turn regardless.
The only time I protest is when someone injects some political or other WAY off topic thread on my only escape from the endless noise of everyday life; sports.
I prefer to talk about sports and suppose I've been feeling the frustration of having to wade through thread after thread of people's personal agendas, if it wasn't this thread it was going to be another.
As for the hierarchy of the EU, CFR or the plight of the common man I could give a rat's a . Like I said, don't care one way or another... just don't ask me to swallow that "nobody is to blame" or it's "a faceless crime" malarky with a smile on my face when it's served up. It's not a conspiracy, but it's not an accident either. I don't watch pro wrestling, reality TV or soap operas for the same reason I don't talk politics; it's not real.
Go talk about politics and religion somewhere else is my opinion... go talk about it in a bar with a bunch of alcohol, that way you can fight it out with someone or better yet there's a political forum one click away.
None of my posts should be taken too seriously, regardless of whether I'm funny or not I always channel my inner stand up comedian, and I wasn't being sarcastic or condescending when I said good luck with everything.
