sadly america has still to reach its full potential - only when america elects an alien will it really be free

It is over 60 years since an alien transporter landed at Roswell.

During all this time, the American governments have tried to pretend aliens do not deserve civil rights.

The way for Republicans to take back the presidency is to stop this prejudice and elect a serious change candidate.

Only then can other planets respect America.

Even a dead alien will do to put this transformational policy into action. It doesn’t matter if no-one can understand the alien’s policy.

It is the symbolism that counts.

With an alien president, America could be truly proud. Even if the alien wished to blow-up America, this would be the real change that we could believe in.

America is a great country where dreams come true.

Some may say this is an impossible dream that we can never achieve.

obama theme song - the cult of personality
[Embedding disabled by request”]

Living Colour Cult Of Personality (C) 1988 SONY BMG MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT
from video by Living Colour: Cult Of Personality (C) 1988 SONY BMG MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT

From instapundit:

“If I were John McCain's campaign, I would have just bought enough time to run this video after Obama's infomercial. Just enough time to add "I'm John McCain and I approved this message" at the end and keep it at 5 minutes . . .”

religion to your doorstep

....by an enterprising missionary.

“A Brooklyn clergyman decided to fulfill literally the admonition to ' go out into the highways'. His travelling chapel has stained-glass windows, a small organ, and a steeple that can be lowered to permit passage into a garage.”

“My Fake Baby explores the lives of women who spend hundreds, and sometimes thousands, of pounds on life-like baby dolls. Known as “reborns” some of the dolls have beating hearts, others have tiny veins and even milk spots. Loved like real babies, they’re taken for walks, cuddled and even have their nappies changed.”

a stunning career opens up - licensed cosmetologists, set up your own business, flexible hours

  • “A State license is required for barbers, cosmetologists, and most other personal appearance workers, although qualifications vary by State.
  • About 46 percent of workers are self employed; many also work flexible schedules.”

Marker at abelard.org

“A cosmetologist is a beauty specialist who is educated in treating the hair, skin, and nails. A cosmetologist may care for a client, but may also consult with clients and offer suggestions regarding flattering hairstyles, skincare options, and the best colors and proper application of cosmetics. The specialist with advanced skills may also offer therapeutic treatments and massages, and advise a client in hygienic practices as well as hair, skin or nail care between visits to the salon.” [Quoted from wisegeek.com]

Or try a future as a supervisor of sanitation, degree in dustbinology required. Government grants available.

“Blue stripes are often created when a crevice in the ice sheet fills up with meltwater and freezes so quickly that no bubbles form.

“When an iceberg falls into the sea, a layer of salty seawater can freeze to the underside. If this is rich in algae, it can form a green stripe.

“Brown, black and yellow lines are caused by sediment, picked up when the ice sheet grinds downhill towards the sea.”
