Terrorism should be defeated with love...and superior firepower...- Terry Ingle
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness." --Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776

"Socialism is precisely the religion that must overwhelm Christianity. … In the new order, Socialism will triumph by first capturing the culture via infiltration of schools, universities, churches and the media by transforming the consciousness of society."

So what do you expect for 200 Billion bucks? A trip to Disney World???


This is an article from India Today, evidently they are as impressed with his little vacation as we are. I wonder how he is planning to endear himself to the hearts of the Indian people when he so arrogantly swoops in for a little visit and totally disrupts their lives and livelihoods. I'll bet they are REALLY impressed.
At least they should be thankful they're not paying for it.

BTW, hasn't he ever heard of Skype?-TI
