Headline: Superpower changes, brings hope to the world!

Today a superpower has changed, and now it will continue its self-appointed mission to bring change and hope to the entire world – uniting all the nations of the world under its banner – regardless of whether the world wants it or not.

There are precedents:

    An earlier survey conducted by Timesonline suggests that Obama has the endorsement of the whole world, not just the Americans, even though different countries admire him for different reasons. Many Europeans, particularly the French, have openly admitted that not since John F. Kennedy have they so fallen for a US presidential candidate. They believe that Obama will make America appreciate the virtue of socialist reforms. The Russians are relieved because they don’t expect Obama to be so tough on them. President Chávez of Venezuela says he is not expecting Obama to be a socialist or a revolutionary. He just wants “the black man who is about to be the US president to have enough stature for the times the world is living through.” The Africans, particularly the Kenyans, are naming their newborn after Obama. So you’ll find in a couple of years’ time, 50% of the Africans that you run into are called Barack. The Timesonline article didn’t say anything about China. But a little bird told me that there’ll be a celebration party at the Beijing Hotel lobby tonight.

    The only 3 countries that reject the gospel of CHANGE are: Georgia, the Phillipines and Isreal.

    The Iraqis say, “XXXX you guys, I don’t care who wins. Just get the hell out of my country.”

    So Ned, you see, the whole world is embracing CHANGE. There is no room for prophecy. If Jeremiah was still alive, he would have been pushed overboard from the Titanic.

    According to some pundits at Rupert Murdoch’s Fox News Forum, John McCain lost his election because he failed to follow the party line and “took arbitrary stands on issues that cut against the grain of his party”. And most importantly, without saying, McCain didn’t make that important phone call to the boss of Fox News. Now that’s inexcusable. Not even Kevin Rudd would be that stupid.

    Nice song.

    Yeah, I agree, the Russian Communists had a hell of a lot better music today’s American Democrat Party.

    I find it very hard to resist weeping whenever I hear the Soviet-Russian national anthem.

    The Soviet national anthem was full of very beautiful ideals in which I believe. And that is what has inoculated me against being seduced by the propaganda of Obama’s America, which – because I was born and raised in America – touch my the deepest parts of my emotions.

    I understand that your own experience inoculates you against different kinds of propaganda. Our stories are different. But really “beautiful ideas” deserve one try and one step after another to be put into practise, and America provides a good foundation – rule of law – for bringing ideals and reality closer together without abusing the rights of the individual. I’m watching the process from Europe with some admiration, and either way, there will be something to learn from America in a few years.

  7. Ned Kelly says:

    JR, we will agree to disagree. I think America has very little left to teach to the world anymore, even though I agree that America did teach, and represent, many good things in the world during the 20th century.

    But that era is over. It will be better for America, and for the world, for America to begin to retire from its role as a “world leader”, now and in coming years.

    The time has come, and is long overdue, for America to retire from its role as a “world leader”.

    Come on, America, please take a rest. America, you have earned a long and comfortable retirement.

    Well… let’s agree to disagree.

    So Ned,

    Who should the world look to for an “example”? The Un? Haahahaahahahaaa! We can still teach the world a thing or two about reversing course and getting rid of ideologies. The last 8 years were much more destructive for the US domestically than what “they” did to the rest of the world and this economic mess is the icing on the cake and the fruit in the middle. And to boot, US conservatives include their ultra religious “holiness” as justification for their actions beyond profit for the few.

    Did you know that after the $700 billion bailout was passed, Wall St. companies suddenly started mentioning that they “might” owe their executives and past executives $70 billion in back compensation for unpaid bonuses and for losses in their stock options (caused in large part by their own lies and mismanagement)?

  10. Ned Kelly says:

    Nanhe asked, “Who should the world look to for an “example”?

    Not to any government, that’s for sure.

    “The last 8 years were much more destructive for the US domestically than what “they” did to the rest of the world”

    It’s a fallacy to ascribe the destruction only to the last 8 years. The rot in the American economy began to set in during the 1950s.

    Obama’s campaign was funded considerably by Lehman Brothers and other Wall Street bandits, and he voted for the bailout.

    I agree with you that it’s time for a change of government in the USA. And I wish the Obama legislation luck because they need plenty of them to deal with the mess ahead.

    However, it’s naive to think that the Democrats are not responsible for the financial crisis. Here I refer you to this article from an old Bloomberg report about how and why Chris Dodd, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama had obstructed a bill to regulate Fannie and Freddie in 2005. A year before that, the Australian government had already moved in to regulate the mortgage industry.
