As a response to pleas for internationalism, here is a quote from Canada's wartime Prime Minister. Weasel words from William Lyon Mackenzie King during the war.

"Conscription if necessary, but not necessarily conscription."

I know we're only allowed one but, in true political tradition and in violation of the rules, here is one from Pierre Trudeau, ridiculing Robert Stanfield's "wage and price controls" platform plank during an election. A policy Trudeau then adopted after winning the election.

"Zap, you're frozen."

You reminded me of something.

Helen Thomas once quoted George H.W. Bush as having said, "If the American people knew what we were up to they would chase us through the streets and lynch us."

What sir, would you make a ship sail against the wind and currents by lighting a bonfire under her deck? I pray you excuse me. I have no time to listen to such nonsense.

How can you limit this thread to just one item. They start so many programs and screw them up and make so many excuses that it is hard to post just one. You're a tease, that's what you are, limiting us to one.

I concur! *pound fist on table* Gotta say thanks to Phoenix358-brilliant thread, so many laughs and so little time!

Scorecard as of early Day 2-
Nationally - US is trouncing the rest of the world combined!

Individual Moment of Idiocy - Pelosi is owning numerous nations with just the one quote, justifiably

Lifetime Achievement Award - W may not have one that matches Pelosi on its own, but the scope and breadth of his work cannot be doubted

anyone else find it odd that we began running out of oil 11years after OPEC originated ??
****************

Because we are now running out of gas and oil, we must prepare quickly for a third change, to strict conservation and to the use of coal and permanent renewable energy sources, like solar power.

JIMMY CARTER, televised speech, Apr. 18, 1977

one has to wonder how we went from there to here in 35yrs ?

They do. Ever wonder why the Blue Ridge is blue? It ain't from cars. It is pollution from the trees. The more trees, the more PAH's and other pollutants we get.

Nothing more entertaining than a President of a Country sounding like that. You could switch the word "entertaining" with "embarrassing" in this situation, though.


"There's a saying in Tennessee. They say it in Texas, but probably in Tennessee, too. 'Fool me once......................................................................................shame on.....shame on you.' " LOLOL Jesus Christ.....hahahaha.

I miss that man's speeches, just not his leadership.
