I once thought about spawning with Anna Nicole Smith. Offers were made. But, in the end, a $400m baby seemed like too much of a burden for such a simple man with such simple tastes. Decency - that's what I'm all about. That's what I preach - Tales of Lord Astor and other Great Valentine's Day Gifts, Julio Stantore It was easy …
"...built on a silicon foundation..."
You don't know the difference between silicon and silicone?
The poor girl wouldn't have been able to stand up!
She'd have altered the tides!
Most fittingly Sigmund Freud best summed up America and, unknowingly, Anna Nicole Smith. In his late years on a visit to America Freud was asked for his thoughts on the country. IIRC he replied: "A failure. A magnificent failure but a failure none the less."
"an Empire that can't say "no" and that faces no serious foes."
How many dead soldiers do you have now? And you're thinking of taking on *Iran*? Don't make me laugh. Try taking on China if you can think of a reason (and I'm sure you can), or North Korea for that matter. Then let's see some "serious foes".
What trash of an article. Obviously never been anywhere cultured.
Yes, the American "Empire" is lacking serious foes. They have lost so many soldiers because of the nature of the action in Iraq. Any nation, any at all, who directly attack the United States, and subsequently went to war, would be completely destroyed. The mistake that is being made in Iraq is to think that the Iraqi people can come together under one flag without one of the major groups being suppressed. They are killing eachother, and Americans are dying because they are trying to stop the sectarian fighting. There is no other country in the world with a more powerful military.
By the way, have none of you ever heard, in your lives, of satire? Did you perhaps read "A Modest Proposal" with deep horror in your eyes? Maybe you read "Gulliver's Travels" and thought it a merry little tale, but lacking in any real intellectual or cultural value?
Don't kid yourselves, the UK has it's fair share of cultureless idiots. If America seems to have more, it is because the world sees more of America's culture than any other county's. America may not be perfect, but the article contained a perfect analogy for any country that has realisticly achieved the dream of "freedom of socio-economic movement". Most Americans have so little respect for Anna Nicole Smith that people everywhere are making fun of her death, but hate her as much as any of us want, she represents not just the American dream, but the Capitalist dream.
Anna Nicole Smith was beautiful
May Anna rest in peace--anyone bashing her should just remember one thing Anna rocked, Baby
Its just this kind of attitude that resulted in the current situation in the middle east. A trash article and further proof that america is seemingly incapable of learning from its mistakes.
Gee Otto, bad news for the future of the american race. The rebub jerkoffs (wankers to you) who moan loudest about traditional family values are in the front row drooling at Anna's tits. And they go home and viagra isn't enough to get it up to continue the pure bloodlines. A time bomb just as powerful as china's female shortage. The future is gay chinese supermen.
The Central Bank of China
Does this author have any *idea* how far in debt the US is to China?
Otto - USA
It's not wankers to me, mate. I'm a red-blooded American.
And to the rest. The future may well be gay chinese supermen. But we'll not obey them.
