    According to Hank Johnson a  Democrat congressman from Georgia, if we send too many Marines to Guam, it could tip over!  So anyone thinking of going to Guam, please go on a diet first so the island will be safe! smile

      The scary thing is, some mordot in Congress will want to pass some kind of legislation giving them billions of dollars to prevent it!

            We try not to think of, or talk about Tasmania. Full of Tasmanians seems to be the problem.
            Two heads are better than one has real meaning in Tasmania, one of them here on hubpages is typical having two heads.
            We may tow it closer and dump our rubbish on it, we'll see. It's in the budget somewhere.

              If you donated to Obama's campaign, he'll make sure you get your share of the tax dollars he thinks belong to him to help you out with any Tasmanian problem!

                There's a possibility that some oil reserves will be discovered there.  Of course we'll have to invade the island and teach the inhabitants a thing or two about democracy.

                Well I hope some dollars turn up somewhere for all the American friends who are hurting.
                It's pretty good here, our government made a mess and a lot of debt bailing out the Australian economy and so far its pretty stable with unemployment around 5% and no real changes for most of us. Our Government decided to put insulation in poor families homes for free, and rushed it. 4 houses have burned down because  staples to hold the insulation in place went through the wiring, or the foil used shorted out the low voltage lighting.
                Some people even died.

                I still reckon our Government got it pretty right over all.

                Pore money into long term projects to protect and create jobs. How to do that with a congress like yours? I have no idea, I hope Obama has!

      Why don't you run against him?  He should be really easy to beat!  Then we would have someone sensible in Congress!

    Thanks! Unfortunately, I don't reside in that district - it's metro Atlanta. I live in South GA - thank goodness! The scary part is that this guy was a lawyer for 25 years! How did he even graduate from high school??

    In his defense, maybe this was due to some meds he's on - he has hepatitis-C.

      Hep C is bad hep! He could be on anything! One thing is for sure, he was on something when he explained the whole thing, not just the bit about the Island going arse up! lol
