Well there's talk that Clinton is up to old habits so maybe someday we'll see Bill Clinton and Jerry Hall out on the town...not the worst idea - he can play the sax part in Brown Sugar or CYHMK for musical entertainment......

Brain made a very heavy sentence here. W in China praying for "freedom" and signing a plea for the christians of China... who cares about the other religions... And just the one and almost only thing Chinese done right... Ok, but Brain's right also about the setlists.

And I dont like George W Bushs religious flirtations not at all, I would probably be a democrat if I lived in the US during Clintons admin. He seems to be one of the best presidents but on the other hand he says Nixon was the greatest 20th century president. Its never black and white and i like that.

I am an American. I am a Texan. I have friends in Europe. I have friends in the Mid East. I want to visit Europe. I want to visit my friends in the Mid East. They feel the same.
We are from different cultures and that is what we like about each other in a way. We can not all be the same but we can respect each other and learn from each other. I have never had one bad experience in dealing with anyone from Europe and I hope they haven't had any problems the other way around.
We all cool with each other! The media reports that we hate each other and we sit around saying, "what????????" It is ridiculous.
Spain... one day... I'll make it there!

This cold clima give us an uncontrollable rage.
But if you ever come as a tourist, you're pretty safe if you wear an armour,
and sit a tank.

I love the US of A! Those patriots make me laugh.. it's all a laugh, really.

The US has given us popcorn.. the blues.. Playboy.. yeah baby!!

Like Dan Akroyd once said: "And that is, as you look around the world, you go to the Soviet Union or Great Britain or France, you name it, any country... Everybody is doing flips and twists just to get into a genuine pair of American blue jeans! And to hear this music and we got it all here in America, the land of the Chrysler 440 cubic inch engine!".

I have thought about visiting the US for a longer time.. say a year, maybe more.. it would be great to do that after I've finished my school before going to a university. It's a great country, and I think it would be very educative aswell!

....is this the part where Reptile starts hinting for a place to stay from one of us? Hell, Reptile, you know you're always welcome in my log cabin, but I do have two daughters with whom I'm worried you might get too friendly.

Erik, I'm glad you remembered. I still like to drive around town when I'm not holding any mind altering recreational drugs. It's a cop magnet.
