Subject:Writer's Block: I'm just a bill, yeah I'm only a bill
Time:05:16 pm
If you could change or create a new law, what would it be, and why?



I believe an Amendment should be made to the U.S. Constitution to designate Term limits for U.S. Senators and House Representatives. Since a U.S. Senator's term lasts for 6 years, they should be alotted 2-3 Terms. As for U.S. Representatives, sinces their terms only last 2 yesrs, they should be alotted 6-9 Terms. NO Senator or Representative should EVER be in office for longer than 18 years MAX no matter how good or faithful they are to their constituence.

Elected office is an honor NOT a career.

Furthermore U.S. Senator should have NEVER been alowed to be popularlary elected. They were meant to represent the STATES not the PEOPLE; that is what the House of Representatives was designed for. U.S. Senators can NOT represent the States if they are popularlary elected. U.S. Senators should once more, as originally written in the U.S. Constitution, be elected by the respective State Legislatures.

Subject:It makes you proud that you are an American
Time:05:48 am

Because sometimes those Europeans who happen to be very negative towards Americans (mostly the French) need a reminder...


You could have heard a pin drop…

 

When in England, at a fairly large conference, Colin Powell was asked by the Archbishop of Canterbury if our plans for Iraq were just an example of empire building by George Bush.

Powell answered by saying, “Over the years, the United States has sent many of its fine young men and women into great peril to fight for freedom beyond our borders. The only amount of land we have ever asked for in return is enough to bury those that did not return.”

You could have heard a pin drop

There was a conference in France where a number of international engineers were taking part, including French and American. During a break, one of the French engineers came back into the room saying “Have you heard the latest dumb stunt Bush has pulled? He has sent an aircraft carrier to Indonesia to help the tsunami victims. What does he intended to do, bomb them?”

A Boeing engineer stood up and replied quietly, “Our carriers have three hospitals on board that can treat several hundred people; they are nuclear powered and can supply emergency electrical power to shore facilities; they have three cafeterias with the capacity to feed 3,000 people three meals a day, they can produce several thousand gallons of fresh water from sea water each day, and they carry half a dozen helicopters for use in transporting victims and injured to and from their flight deck. We have eleven such ships.”

“How many does France have?”

 You could have heard a pin drop.

A U.S. Navy Admiral was attending a naval conference that included Admirals from the U.S., English, Canadian, Australian and French Navies. At a cocktail reception, he found himself standing with a large group of Officers that included personnel from most of those countries. Everyone was chatting away in English as they sipped their drinks but a French admiral suddenly complained that, whereas Europeans learn many languages, Americans learn only English. He then asked, “Why is it that we always have to speak English in these conferences rather than speaking French?”

Without hesitating, the American Admiral replied “Maybe it's because the Brits, Canadians, Aussies and Americans arranged it so you wouldn't to speak German.”

 You could have heard a pin drop.

And this story fits right in with the above…

 

Robert Whiting, an elderly gentleman of 83, arrived in Paris by plane. At French Customs, he took a few minutes to locate his passport in his carry on. “You have been to France before, monsieur?” the customs officer asked sarcastically. Mr. Whiting admitted that he had been to France previously. “Then you should know enough to have your passport ready.” 

The American said, “The last time I was here, I didn't have to show it.”

“Impossible! Americans always have to show their passports upon arrival in France!” The American senior gave the Frenchman a long hard look. Then he quietly explained, “Well, when I came ashore at Omaha Beach on D-Day in 1944 to help liberate this country, I couldn't find a single Frenchmen to show a passport to.”

Subject:In Honor of Chlark Appreciation Month
Time:02:32 am

I'm a Chlarker through and through, so when I stumbled upon this Chlark blog-site I was ecstatic. It has some of THE BEST Clark/Chloe stories in existence. I've read almost every fic posted on this site and all of them are written by the same author as far as I can tell. The site is called Elly's Fanfiction

It also has some Clark/Lex fics posted on it, but I refuse to read those. As much as I like Clark to be friends with a "grey" Lex; those two do NOT belong in a romantic relationship. That spot in Clark's life is exclusively reserved for Chloe as far as I'm concerned. 

Here's the link: http://ellyfanfiction.blogspot.com/ 

So check it out, you will not be disappointed.
