    Robin Williams

    Leave it to Robin Williams to come up with the perfect plan.. what we need now is for our UN Ambassador to stand up and repeat this message.

    Robin Williams' plan...(Hard to argue with this logic!)

    I see a lot of people yelling for peace but I have not heard of a plan for peace. So, here's one plan:


    1) The US will apologize to the world for our "interference" in their affairs, past &present. We will promise never to "interfere" again.

    2) We will withdraw our troops from all over the world, starting with Germany, South Korea and the Philippines. They don't want us there. We would station troops at our borders. No more sneaking through holes in the fence.

    3) All illegal aliens have 90 days to get their affairs together and leave. We'll give them a free trip home. After 90 days the remainder will be gathered up and deported immediately,regardless of who or where they are. France would welcome them.

    4) All future visitors will be thoroughly checked and limited to 90 day visits unless given a special permit. No one from a terrorist nation would be allowed in. If you don't like it there, change it yourself. Don't hide here. Asylum would not ever be available to anyone. We don't need any more cab drivers.

    5) No "students" over age 21. The older ones are the bombers. If they don't attend classes, they get a "D" and it's back home, baby.

    6) The US will make a strong effort to become self sufficient energy wise. This will include developing non polluting sources of energy but will require a temporary drilling of oil in the Alaskan wilderness. The caribou will have to cope for a while.

    7) Offer Saudi Arabia and other oil producing countries $10 a barrel for their oil. If they don't like it, we go someplace else.


    8) If there is a famine or other natural catastrophe in the world, we will not "interfere". They can pray to Allah or whomever, for seeds, rain, cement or whatever they need. Besides, most of what we give them gets "lost" or is taken by their army. The people who need it most get very little, anyway.

    9) Ship the UN Headquarters to an island some place. We don't need the spies and fair weather friends here. Besides, it would make a good homeless shelter or lockup for illegal aliens.


    10) Use the buildings as replacement for the twin towers.


    11) All Americans must go to charm and beauty school. That way, no one can call us "Ugly Americans" any longer.



    12) Now, ain't that a winner of a plan.

    13) "The Statue of Liberty is no longer saying 'Give me your poor, your tired, your huddled masses.' She's got a baseball bat and she's yelling, 'You want a piece of me?'


    IF YOU AGREE, PASS THIS ON!

    May the fleas of a thousand Afghan camels
    infest the crotch of the person
    who screws up your day and
    may their arms be too short to scratch.

    y'all come

    Yeah, great Linton.

    If the US hadn't "interfered" in Europe in WW2 my father and other members of my family would probably have been starved by the German blockade of the Atlantic.

    I wouldn't exist. Perhaps that's no loss.

    Do you think that people in the UK seriously think they would have been better off without the US entering the war?

    It's not that simple.

    I think Mr. Williams is supposed to be a comedian, not a philosopher, I wouldn´t take this too seriously, if I were you - he was very funny in Dead Poets Society, but that doesn´t make him the new Jean Paul Satre now, does it?

    Re: Robin Williams

    This report has been on Snopes2 for some time:

    Claim: Comedian Robin Williams came up with a plan for how the U.S. should handle foreign affairs.

    Status: False.

    Example: [Collected on the Internet, 2003]


    A GREAT PLAN

    Leave it to Robin Williams to come up with the perfect plan . . . what we need now is for our UN Ambassador to stand up and repeat this message.

    Robin Williams' plan...(Hard to argue with this logic!)

    I see a lot of people yelling for peace but I have not heard of one plan for peace. "Books, not Bombs" won't work. The head mullahs won't let anyone read them. If they do, they poke their eyes out.

    Here's the plan:

    1) The US will apologize to the world for our "interference" in their affairs, past &present. You know, Hitler, Mussolini and the rest of them 'good old boys'. We will never "interfere" again.

    2) We will withdraw our troops from all over the world, starting with Germany, South Korea and the Philippines. They don't want us there. We would station troops at our borders. No more sneaking through holes in the fence.

    3) All illegal aliens have 90 days to get their affairs together and leave. We'll give them a free trip home. After 90 days the remainder will be gathered up and deported immediately, regardless of who or where they are. France would welcome them.

    4) All future visitors will be thoroughly checked and limited to 90 days unless given a special permit. No one from a terrorist nation would be allowed in. If you don't like it there, change it yourself, don't hide here. Asylum would not ever be available to anyone. We don't need any more cab drivers.

    5) No "students" over age 21. The older ones are the bombers. If they don't attend classes, they get a "D" and it's back home baby.

    6) The US will make a strong effort to become self sufficient energy wise. This will include developing non-polluting sources of energy but will require a temporary drilling of oil in the Alaskan wilderness. The caribou will have to cope for a while.

    7) Offer Saudi Arabia and other oil producing countries $10 a barrel for their oil. If they don't like it, we go someplace else.

    8) If there is a famine or other natural catastrophe in the world, we will not "interfere". They can pray to Allah or whomever, for seeds, rain, cement or whatever they need. Besides most of what we give them is stolen or given to the army. The people who need it most get very little, if any anyway.

    9) Ship the UN Headquarters to an island some place. We don't need the spies and fair weather friends here. Besides, it would make a good homeless shelter or lockup for illegal aliens.

    10) All Americans must go to charm and beauty school. That way, no one can call us "Ugly Americans" any longer.

    Now, ain't that a winner of a plan ??


    Origins: We don't yet know who is responsible for the piece quoted above, but it definitely wasn't actor-comedian Robin Williams (of Mork & Mindy fame). This item's debut appears to have been a 21 March 2003 posting to the USENET newsgroup ia.talk.misc, and from there it was rapidly disseminated via e-mail and blogs, credited to either "author unknown" or no one at all. The Robin Williams attribution wasn't tacked on until several weeks later, apparently because along the way someone appended a genuine Robin Williams quote to the list as an eleventh item:


    "The Statue of Liberty is no longer saying 'Give me your poor, your tired, your huddled masses.' She's got a baseball bat and she's yelling, 'You want a piece of me?'" - Robin Williams.
    Obviously the Robin Williams attribution for the final item was interpreted as applying to the list as a whole, so now the entire piece is making the rounds as 'the Robin Williams plan.'

    Good work, Lindi, you're one bright girl. I couldn't believe Robins would pen anything like that. I think he's too liberal.

    y'all come

    Re: Robin Williams

    Thanks Linton! I did like what he actually did say:

    "The Statue of Liberty is no longer saying 'Give me your poor, your tired, your huddled masses.' She's got a baseball bat and she's yelling, 'You want a piece of me?'" - Robin Williams.

    Now that's the Robin I know, LoL!

    horse crap, mr linton

    What a load.
    We know that those who can’t write, cut and paste from others who can.
    But, to paste a load of right wing crap like that, then attribute it to a celebrity, is pathetic.
    Poor mr. Linton, politically desperate, yet unable to compose his own twisted thoughts. How ‘american’.
    I know that ‘writers net’ is above crap like this.
    Yes please, let’s replace Liberty’s torch with a base ball bat. Christ, what a load of crap.
    toby
    as always I’m here to help.
    ps.
    Unfortunate to now have to wonder where mr. Linton steals the rest of his posts.
