“It looks to me that rather than us selling Democracy to the Arabs they have sold their corrupt method of government and doing business to us..

The Arab nations are built on corruption and bribery and have been for years..It is a normal way of doing business and running a government..Have you noticed that bribery and corruption have been creeping into our corporations and government lately..

If big corporations find that they have to use bribery and corruption in the Arab countries in order to do business don’t you think they will bring this method home and try to use it here in our so called Democracy..

I think the Neocon no regulation Capitalism that we have at present is a great breeding ground to use methods that they find to work in the
Arab Countries..”

“I am thinking of becoming a member of the US Supreme Court
First of all I must become a lawyer so I am taking a correspondent course in the law from a college recommended by the Koch Brothers in Texas..
Next I will be appointed by the Republicans.. I need to be appointed as I could never be elected due to my incarceration for fraud and my association with the Mafia.
If appointed I will promise to attend all Koch brothers meetings and parties with the 4 other Justices who attend these events and to vote the way my wife tells me to.
At the age of 75 I expect to have a nice nest egg hidden away in my offshore account in the Cayman Islands..”

“I am thinking of becoming a Canadian Senator..

First of all I am thinking of buying a shack somewhere and declaring it as my place of residence and then buying a nice big home in Ottawa and living there..
Next I will have to butter up the sitting Government so I can be appointed as I could never be elected to anything because of my reputation but I do have money..As you might have guessed Mike Duffy and Conrad Black have been my Inspiration..

Once appointed I will attend as few meetings as possible as It will interfere with my outside business and sitting on the boards of many questionable businesses in Canada..It would be nice to sit on the Senate Caucus as that would mean more money but the money is not bad sitting as an Independent as I can collect that salary until I am 75..
If someone out there would be willing to give me a shack somewhere I would be glad to represent you in the Senate..”

“Why can’t the gun dealers or manufacturers of guns be sued for distributing the guns used in a murder or maiming of innocent citizens..

Maybe if it affected their pocket book they might pay attention to the slaughter they are causing..They also might pay attention to where their guns are being sold and who they are being sold to..

As far as illegal guns are concerned it might be hard to find the seller of the gun but is easy to identify the make model and manufacturer of the gun The one thing I would be afraid of is that the Manufacturers might consider this "the cost of doing business" and do nothing..”

“You can't sue a manufacturer or distributor when the item is used for anything other than the advertised purpose. If Smith and Wesson advertised a "Rapist Special" or "School Child Annihilator" they could be held liable if the gun was used as advertised. You can't sue Ford if you are hit by a Ford vehicle driven by a drunk driver.”
