    Of course, I point out to him that Austria gave us two of the most destructive people of the 20th century-Hitler and Freud.
    I shared a suite in college with a number of other guys, one of whom was Austrian. As near as I can tell, they are just like Germans, except with less of a sense of humor.

    Nah, that's a rational argument. You've got to think more gonzo than that. We're talking about places that would seem like states to a guy who was educated by the best schools that were willing to lower their academic standards in the name of affirmative action, and who spent most of his time at those schools in the pursuit of the kind of academic excellence that can only come from repeated hits from the communal bong.

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

    Now, now get it right. He gave the Walmart movies to the British PM. The queen he gave an iPod full of his own speeches.

    This is mixed news to me, though. I'm glad the companies are in a position to hire new people, but Michigan has to stop relying so much on the auto industry as our economic base.

    I'd add to that; stop putting your life and future in the hands of Unions.
