My sister sent this e-mail last night.  I found it interesting and wanted to find out what you guys think.  I'm getting tired of forwarding and choosing who to send it to.  Got a poll at the bottom.  So here it is in its entirety:

E-Mail of the Year!!

'My Fellow Americans: As you all know, the defeat of the <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />Iraq regime has been completed.
Since Congress does not want to spend any more money on this war, our mission in Iraq is complete.

This morning I gave the order for a complete removal of all American forces from Iraq. This action will be complete within 30 days. It is now time to begin the reckoning.

Before me, I have two lists. One list contains the names of countries which have stood by our side during the Iraq conflict. This list is short . The United Kingdom, Spain, Bulgaria, Australia, and Poland are some of the countries listed there.

The other list contains every one not on the first list. Most of the world's nations are on that list. My press secretary will be distributing copies of both lists later this evening.

Let me start by saying that effective immediately, foreign aid to those nations on List 2 ceases indefinitely. The money saved during the first year alone will pretty much pay for the costs of the Iraqi war.

The American people are no longer going to pour money into third world Hell holes and watch those government leaders grow fat on corruption.

Need help with a famine ? Wrestling with an epidemic? Call France.

In the future, together with Congress, I will work to redirect this money toward solving the vexing social problems we still have at home. On that note, a word to terrorist organizations. Screw with us and we will hunt you down and eliminate you and all your friends from the face of the earth.

Thirsting for a gutsy country to terrorize? Try France or maybe China.

I am ordering the immediate severing of diplomatic relations with France, Germany, and Russia. Thanks for all your help, comrades. We are retiring from NATO as well.

I have instructed the Mayor of New York City to begin towing the many UN diplomatic vehicles located in Manhattan with more than two unpaid parking tickets to sites where those vehicles will be stripped, shredded and crushed. I don't care about whatever treaty pertains to this. You creeps have tens of thousands of unpaid tickets. Pay those tickets tomorrow or watch your precious Benzes, Beamers and limos be turned over to some of the finest chop shops in the world. I love New York

A special note to our neighbors: Canada is on List 2. Since we are likely to be seeing a lot more of each other, you folks might want to try not pissing us off for a change.

Mexico is also on List 2. Its president and his entire corrupt government really need an attitude adjustment. I will have a couple thousand extra tanks and infantry divisions sitting around. Guess where I am going to put 'em? Yep, border security.

Oh, by the way, the United States is abrogating the NAFTA treaty - starting now.

We are tired of the one-way highway. Immediately, we'll be drilling for oil in Alaska-which will take care of this country's oil needs for decades to come. If you're an environmentalist who opposes this decision, I refer you to List 2 above: pick a country and move there.

It is time for America to focus on its own welfare and its own citizens. Some will accuse us of isolationism. I answer them by saying,
'darn tootin.'<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Nearly a century of trying to help folks live a decent life around the world has only earned us the undying enmity of just about everyone on the planet. It is time to eliminate hunger in America. It is time to eliminate homelessness in America. To the nations on List 1, a final thought. Thank you guys. We owe you and we won't forget.

To the nations on List 2, a final thought: You might want to learn to speak Arabic.

God bless America.. Thank you and good night.

If you can read this, thank a teacher. If you are reading it in English, thank a soldier.


Blessings and love to you all,

Very good ! We need someone in office who will get busy and get tough! No more pandering to the countries who are laughing at us behind our back.  I also wish they'd clean up the U.N.too.  Those countries that don't pay their bills should be expelled.  We (and other peace loving countries) have allowed so many to treat us like door mats.  It's time to stop!  Ok~getting down off my soap box-Linda in Washington

I would love for this to happen, but I don't think it ever will. I do think that our price of wheat should depend on how much they charge us for oil! LOL

While I greatly appreciate where it's humor is directed and applaud the point it is trying to make, the plain truth is to do exactly what is in the email would be disastrous I am afraid.  -  Barbara

I doubt if this would ever happen although I would like to see someone do it.  I'm sure it probably wouldn't be the best policy to follow though but the buck is going to have to stop somewhere.  Hugs Chris
