My site isn't accessible from China.....Pretty funny, bordering on the idiotic.The commies don't want me arousing rebellion, of course. What about Saudi Arabia?
Update: The test was had a glitch in it. The Chinese don't fear me as much as I thought. I'm gonna have to work on that.

N.Z. Bear has accepted my piece and will be giving me a userid so I can post it and future stuff. It's pretty damn cool. I'll be modifying it to include a couple of things I learnt off after I wrote it. Israel has a free trade agreement with the US already. Not very surprising, but it is never really talked about. It's just a minor adjustment to the piece.

of his prosperity he would be careless; and understanding of his adversity he would be senseless."
You are Augustine!
You love to study tough issues and don't mind it if you lose sleep over them.
Everyone loves you and wants to talk to you and hear your views, you even get things like "nice debating
with you." Yep, you are super smart, even if you are still trying to figure it all out. You're also
very honest, something people admire, even when you do stupid things.
The post below, is something that I strongly believe in. I just think that if we do something like this it will bring our allies closer to us and unite our efforts against terrorism.

Free Trade and
the War on Islamo-fascism:
I believe that the United States should cement
its ties with its allies in this war by creating a new agreement that binds
democratic nations that are committed to fighting this war, into an
international compact that is based on the principles of free-trade.
There are nations out there, fighting on the
frontlines of this war, the most of significant amongst which are Israel, India
and Turkey. Trade ties with these nations should be strengthened so that we may
once again become the “arsenal of democracy.” We must also develop free trade
agreements with our “cousins,” the British, the Ozzies and New Zealand. Only by
working together with our real allies can we win this War.
What can you do? Tell me what you think and, if you agree
with what I say, tell others about it.
I finally got the flag gif up there. Mad props to Robert Prather.

Here's a great post at Samizdata with an excerpt of a great speech by Elizabeth I. If she had been around today, Britain would have probably been quite distant from the EUnuchs.

Apparently Michael Moore (big, fat asshole) has done some creative editing in his movie, Bowling for Columbine.

The mullahs spout such garbage that Fisking it would be a thorough pain in the ass. You would have to work your way through a mountain of shit and literally debunk every phrase. Any reasonable human being who has access to more than a single (state-owned) news source would doubt the truthfulness of this garbage.

So, Republicans have a majority in both houses. They better get shit done.
Here's what I think should be done:
1. Since SS is a ponzi-scheme, they should start dismantling it.
2. Get some judges who will opine according to the Constitution and not attempt
to be populists.
3. Here's a pipe dream of mine- instead of this Homeland Security, what should
be created is a department of "intelligence" or something along those lines. The
FBI, CIA, NSA et al should be cut down to reduce overlap and brought into a
single department. Reduce bureaucracy.
4. We should rename the Defense Dept and give it it's old name back; that's what
they do anyway, fight Wars.
5. Reform the copyright and patent laws: Set a maximum period and no extensions
possible beyond that.
I know some of this stuff won't get done but it never hurts to dream.
