More people that think we should care and they should matter

From the Seattle PI:

VANCOUVER, B.C. -- Jamal Saad is gay. And Middle Eastern. And disappointed in his U.S. neighbors.

"We hate Bush. We despise Bush," said the 17-year-old film student with hair bleached sunny yellow and thoughts of someday having a same-sex spouse. He hails from Lebanon and has roots in Russia. "People there hate Bush, too."

"Bush is still in the crazy foreign policy days of 'conquer the world,' " said Dave Trent, a 27-year-old software developer and glass importer whose business has been dinged by harsh U.S. tariffs.

Trent and friends concluded that the election, with its dated low-tech polling system, must be rigged. How else to explain the inexplicable?

"I've traveled extensively in Europe, and I haven't talked to one European who has a fond opinion of the man," Trent said.

I am amazed they are still running these stories. Listen all you bone heads in other countries. WE DON’T CARE WHAT YOU THINK. SO SHUT UP! Your opinion doesn’t matter one little bit. As a friend of mine said ‘you can measure how much I care in micro-give-a-s#@ts’. You don’t get to vote and your opinion does not count here. It is so F-ing arrogant to talk to us as if we really should value the opinion of a person that does not live here and does not have a real vested interested in the safety and future of this country. I can not remember when we collectively or even as a large group gave a crap who you elected, and in this persons opinion you have elected some real boneheads. If that’s what you want, great, hope you like your socialized everything, and once again, Kiss off.

France takes unilateral action!

Washington Post:

France rolled out overwhelming military force Sunday to put down an explosion of anti-French violence in its former West African colony, deploying troops, armored vehicles, and helicopter gunships against machete-waving mobs that hunted house-to-house for foreigners.

The U.N. Security Council, in emergency session late Saturday, demanded an immediate halt to all military action in Ivory Coast, and France blamed Ivory Coast's leader directly.

Wow where do you start with this one? I did not think that France had the balls to actually do anything like this. Why is this not in the main stream media? It seems that they are allowed to fight to protect their own interests, but that we can not.
