Let's Talk Turkey- George Bush- Diplomat at Large
(Transcription of Audio Podcast)
Well, it seems like President Bush has been throwing out acts of random kindness, and that beats random acts of war any day. This week Bush has given us hope that human kindness is not a foreign word, it`s a foreign policy. Diplomat at large, that`s what Bush is.
Now, see, our president welcomed the Dali Lama to come to our great and FREE country. Get a taste of what it`s like to think and speak whatever you like. He also handed him a Congressional Gold Medal. I wonder if they tested him for doping, though. Hmm. Anyway.
Now I have to say that China does not leave itself in good light when they threaten the USA by saying that dealings with the Dali Lama may cause bad feelings between the US and China. I don`t know if you know this China, but we`re not really happy with the bill of goods that you`ve been selling us.
If you all don`t behave, we might just cut our import spending with you folks down to 1 trillion dollars a year instead of the 1.7 trillion.
How anybody could be threatened by a person that is calm, smart and smiles all the time, is beyond me. I can`t remember the last time I saw the Dali Lama in the newspaper for any crime-- other than being a Polly Anna in our skeptical world.
I remember seeing a movie or two that showed the life of the Dali Lama in Tibet. The story shows his life and his struggles, and then fleeing from the country. The Dali Lama has a simple life, well at least it used to be. Ahh, now behold the Internet, now you can go to the Dali Lama`s web site.
The web site is like an Internet fortune cookie, open it up and read things that make you think again. Just sign up and get your daily advice.
I had the pleasure of seeing the Dali Lama one time in Tucson, AZ. I waited almost 2 hours in line and I really could`t understand much that went on. But, faith goes a long way these days. Hope`s a big commodity. However, it just goes to show you that we`re just looking for someone who has a plan-- and follows through.
Overall, the day went well with Bush and the Dali Lama, oh, yeah, and Bush threw in a democrat just to make it all fair and balanced-- Ms. Pelosi.
We have not heard from the China government yet. No fall out yet, but Christmas is coming and, as you know, that is where Santa gets all his toys.
The other act of kindness is Bush taking a stand for the Turkish government; you know the whole thing about genocide and all. Let me bring you up to speed JUST in case you weren`t around when this all happened back in 1915, almost 100 years ago, `cause I wasn`t.
Seem parts of the Turkish government, at the time, decided to decrease the population in a very abnormal way, an involuntary way. I won`t go into it too much, I want you to have the correct information and make your own calls. Therefore, I`ve left a link at the end of this page so that you can check it out and see what the whole thing was about back then.
That`s kind of like my disclaimer, innocent until proven guilty. The real question is " should this be a governmental thing? Or, maybe their government does what we did with 911. Mourn the day and the lives it took and don`t let it happen again. And if it does, get to stopping it right away.
Look at it this way:
If you have ever had a dog and the dog does it duties on the rug and you wait too long to scold that animal, you`ll only confuse it. The same applies to humans.
Now, apply that to the even shorter attention span of our politicians and governments, and you had better just forget it. `Cause they did.
Now, democrats are really pushing this issue hard and some say maybe they parallel this with Iraq. But then again, what is genocide? Wars out of control? But, have you ever seen a war in control? That`s best answered by the troops NOT the commanders, by the way.
You know the old saying, "In a hundred years, who`ll remember all this, anyway?" Well, it seems like the interest groups may. Hopefully, we can all learn from this, and as I`ve said before, learn from history so you don`t repeat it tomorrow.
Oh, and, hey, Mr. President, take notes on these genocide questions. They may come up in about 50 years.
