maybe a dupe. i don't care. a good thought to roll around. This just made its way around my office...



In case we find ourselves starting to believe all the anti-American sentiment and negativity, we should remember England's Prime Minister Tony Blair's words during a recent interview. When asked by one of his Parliament members why he believes so much in America, he said:
"A simple way to take measure of a country is to look at how many want
in ... And how many want out."


attached to the message was this also:


Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you:
1. Jesus Christ

2. The American G. I.

One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.

Tony Blair is a man of vision and honor; he would make Winston Churchill proud.

God Save The Queen.

Snopes says --- Kinda' true.

www.snopes.com/politics/quotes/blair.asp

The actual quote from Blair is equally impressive.

"First, we should remain the closest ally of the US, and as allies influence them to continue broadening their agenda. We are the ally of the US not because they are powerful, but because we share their values. I am not surprised by anti-Americanism; but it is a foolish indulgence. For all their faults and all nations have them, the US are a force for good; they have liberal and democratic traditions of which any nation can be proud. I sometimes think it is a good rule of thumb to ask of a country: are people trying to get into it or out of it? It's not a bad guide to what sort of country it is."

-- Tony Blair, January 2003

Yep...I have a girlfriend who married a citizen of a foreign country. When he goes off on a political tangent, I smile sweetly and say, "How many people have risked their lives to become Irish citizens, lately?"

"But that's not the point."


"Yeah, it kinda is."

Blair is a two faced liar… If John Kerry became President and pulled out of Iraq and Afghanistan he's tow his party line as well.

Don't kid yourself Blair loves the USA… Before he became Prime Minister he was anti Nuclear and anti US… He says the same nice things about the French and Germans when he's there as well…

FACTS:

Blair is against private ownership of firearms…

Blair is against individual liberty and believes the State always knows best…

Blair believes in 'Big Government' and an expanding Welfare State…

Blair belives in the EU passionately and wants Britain to become part of a United States of Europe…

Blair believes the Goverment should use tax to redistribute wealth…

Blair is against hunting… he banned Foxhunting…

Blair belives the State should monitor and watch all it's citizens… he supports the compulsory logging of everyones DNA…



The reality of Tony Blair is that his policies are diametrically oppossed to everything an American would regard as right and Constitutional.

While a neat quote, our fellow ARFCOM members across the pond have a different view of Tony Blair and the Labor party.
