'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. You know, Hitler, Mussolini,
Stalin, Tojo, Noriega, Milosevic, Hussein, and the rest of those 'good 'ole' boys', we will never 'interfere' again.

2) We will withdraw our troops from all over the world, starting with Germany , South Korea , the Middle East, and the
Philippines . They don't want us there.
We would station troops at our borders.
No one allowed 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 whom or where they are. They're illegal!!!
France will 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 will be allowed in.. If you don't like it there, change it yourself and don't hide here. Asylum would never be
available to anyone. We don't need any more cab drivers or 7-11 cashiers.

5) No foreign '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 nonpolluting 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.
They can go somewhere else to sell their production. (About a week of the wells filling up the storage sites would be enough.)

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 anything.

9) Ship the UN Headquarters to an isolated island someplace. We don't need the spies and fair weather friends here. Besides, the
building 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.
The Language we speak is ENGLISH... learn it... or LEAVE...
Now, isn't that a winner of a plan?

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

Apparently the only part that Robin Williams really wrote was;

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

The rest has been forwarded around since 2003 according to snopes.

There's still a ton of websites quoting it as true though...

Yet one more reason I love Robin Williams, whether he actually said it or not.

This plan needs to be enacted immediately.

I like the plan as well. However we have the wrong people in office now to enact it.

"Now"? Rolling on the Floor Rolling on the Floor So who would the "right" people be? because it's not a "now" situation and regardless of who is in office BEFORE or AFTER, the only thing that matters to the people in power is the almighty dollar and it's the people BEFORE that have let America be pimped by other nations and taken advantage of like some ditzy chick on prom night.

Too many people here and abroad are getting wealthy not rich but WEALTHY (know the difference) off of whats been going on and won't do anything to rock the boat...so you tell me what group of morally upstanding citizens in government will do this?

NO Rep or Dem has the BALLS to get up and put any of this into action and I don't see any Independents doing anything either.
