BOLTON - Call To Action

The following critical call to action comes to me from Paul Paz y Mino with the Stop Bolton Coalition. I eagerly support his work and encourage interested parties to get involved and follow his lead.

Anyone is Better than Bolton!
Apply today to be U.S. Ambassador to the UN
Tell the Senate to Continue to Oppose Bolton
Most of the world now knows that John Bolton is damaged goods and could never be an effective ambassador at the UN. The Senate has not confirmed him because of his questionable handling of intelligence, ineffectiveness on critical international security issues, and disdain for international institutions and law. Yet, the White House is digging in its heels and may ignore the Senate's concerns by giving Bolton a recess appointment.

We need you to Support the Senate in its efforts to Stop Bolton and let the White House know that anyone else would be better for the job. All of you should apply today for the job. If you believe the Administration should work with the Senate and the United States should engage with the rest of the world to tackle terrorism, UN reform, and nuclear weapons , then you are better qualified than John Bolton!

Show the Senate and the White House just how many alternatives to Bolton they have!
You can write through your own senator's website www.senate.gov or send emails directly to your senator thru www.stopbolton.org

Honorable (Name of Senator)

Dear (Name of Senator):

I am writing to apply for the position of U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations. As outlined below, my qualifications far exceed Mr. Bolton's for this position.

At a time when we need to work with the world to tackle complex issues like the war on terror, I am well positioned to reach out to and work with our allies. For example, unlike Mr. Bolton, I have never worked to undermine the efforts of our allies to persuade Iran to drop its nuclear ambitions, nor have I stalled nuclear threat reduction initiatives with Russia..

I have never tried to politicize intelligence or cry "wolf" about other countries' weapons programs. If the President asks me to make our case with regard to North Korea or Iran, my credibility is intact with our allies and I could rally other nations to our cause.

I am committed to reforming the United Nations because I understand the important role it plays in promoting peace, security, democracy, health, and other U.S. interests. In reform discussions, I would be informed as well as aggressive, and I would never callously suggest the effort could be as easy as lopping off the top ten floors of the UN Secretariat building in New York City.

I treat my professional colleagues fairly and with respect, as I would want to be treated, because it is the right thing to do and more importantly because as a diplomat, it would allow me to accomplish my country's national security goals more effectively.

I realize that, as a senator, you are unable to nominate Ambassadors. However,
I urge you to publicly object to a recess appointment of Mr. Bolton, which would undercut your responsibility to offer advice and consent on Presidential appointments. Further, I urge you to oppose Mr. Bolton's nomination and any motions that close Senate debate on his candidacy before the Senate receives all the information it has requested. Your opposition will allow the White House to nominate a new candidate who, like me, would be a more suitable U.S. Representative to the United Nations.

My resume and references are available upon request.


*This message is not a sincere application for the position, but rather an attempt to illustrate Mr. Bolton's serious shortcomings. Please oppose Mr. Bolton's nomination.

Stop Bolton

Does this mean I'm more qualified to run for U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations? That would be so cool!

Hi, Megan!

I closed that game on Blogshares, because it's better to play it on Michele's blog, since alot of people are playing it there already anyways.

Here is a link to her blog, just look for the post that has almost 600 comments, and that's the game, I think.


I hope you had a nice weekend, and have a great day!

Program on the emergence of civilization.

"14 species of large animals capable of domesitcation in the history of mankind.
None from the sub-Saharan African continent.
13 from Europe, Asia and northern Africa."
And disfavor.

They point out Africans’ attempts to domesticate the elephant and zebra, the latter being an animal they illustrate that had utmost importance for it's applicability in transformation from a hunting/gathering to agrarian-based civilization.

The roots of racism are not of this earth.

Austrailia, aboriginals:::No domesticable animals.

The North American continent had none. Now 99% of that population is gone.

Organizational Heirarchy
Heirarchical order, from top to bottom:

1. MUCK - perhaps have experienced multiple universal contractions (have seen multiple big bangs), creator of the artificial intelligence humans ignorantly refer to as "god"
2. Perhaps some mid-level alien management –
3. Mafia (evil) aliens - runs day-to-day operations here and perhaps elsewhere ("On planets where they approved evil.")

Then we come to terrestrial management:

4. Chinese/egyptians - this may be separated into the eastern and western worlds
5. Romans - they answer to the egyptians
6. Mafia - the real-world interface that constantly turns over generationally so as to reinforce the widely-held notion of mortality
7. Jews, corporation, women, politician - Evidence exisits to suggest mafia management over all these groups.

Survival of the favored.
