Subject: RE: american politics is a joke
Clifton, re-read that first post of yours. For my money it was isolationist, brain-dead thinking straight out of the G W Bush school. Is there some other way to interpret it?

No, Ebbie, let's not dwell in the past. Hitler was of Austrian origin but chancellor of Germany. (OK, Germany over-ran Austria, along with a whole lot of other places.) I was referring to the present chancellor of Austria, who is Wolfgang Schussel.

Rob-o, I live in an island nation (UK). You can be forgiven for not knowing this (especially if you are soon to be living in GWB's America) but unlike me, you can travel to other countries without ever leaving dry land. Or if you want to go farther, I think it's about 100 miles from Florida to Cuba (when your enlightened government finally says you can do that trip). A little bit farther to the West Indies. And how come there are proportionately more passports in New Zealand than in USA? NZ is nearly 2,000 miles from anywhere. (I'd send you an atlas but they're probably banned over there *BG*)
