.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

George H. W. Bush, "...a new world order...."  I think the new world order means a one world government.  The only good thing I can see coming out of that is that war will be downsized to local disturbances.

i'm pretty sure that when bush said that, he didn't mean it in the same context.  could be wrong.  it happened once before  :evil:

One thing I've learned about politicians, besides the fact that if their mouth is open they are lying, is that they have developed a real talent for coaching the most outlandish ideas in innocuous words. 
If a politician says something inspiring you'd better look at it through a magnifying glass, disect it and look at it again, and then you still might miss the real meaning.

No, you can't 'go it alone' when you're trying to push everyone into globalism.  It's a horribly bad idea that is continuing to go horribly wrong, but it's making a select few quite a few billions, so that powerful and continually power hungry few will keep pushing and pushing until the whole world is one huge smoking mess - but then what good will all their billions do? 

It's the same thing that's happened here, supposedly smart people ignoring all the warning signs, pushing the credit markets more and more all the while ripping the underpinnings (real solid economic foundational rules) out, all for the sake of wringing out a few more pennies into their pockets.  Now we've got these economic geniuses wondering how we got into this mess (any idiot knows how) and how they can machinate us out of it.   :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  And they wonder why we worry about our guns.  :roll:
