Questions and Answers

The "brilliant minds" of Dubbyah and Dick Cheyney
On philosophic questions, they have answers one too many
They go out of their way to make it their biz
To answer the religious question of who the one real God is

On the question of evolution, Pastor Huckabee with no compunction
Explains it was simply Mister Darwin's brain mal-function
On the question of Creationism, Hucakabee happily drools
His answer, "It should be taught in all the schools"

When a question is asked on how to help our country progress
Our right wing philosophers answer, "Just stifle Congress"
Socrates and Plato those soul searching sleuths
Unlike our wrong right wingers, searched for truths

With arrogance our leaders have answers galore
They've solved all our problems, of that they are sure
But for them, the solve that would be most rewarding
Spinning the morality of in-humane water-boarding

A well written argument stan cleverly crafted your logic open to debate of course the dictatorship question

i am sure there are many from the old communist block countries that would welcome the freedom of America and the uk and may be the students in Tianemen square would also not agree. neither too the rioters in burma earlier this year and of course if we got out of Afghanistan as i believe we should the and allow the taliban to return
they nkow a thing or two about dictatorship. Cut tongue tongues out for a start dont allow women the vote and certainly dont want the ppl educated. That causes them to ask questions and that breeds revolution.

your constitution is the embodiment of human rights , the excesses of your government are mild compared to other dictatorships. it is voters apathy that causes these excesses
you have a chance to change it all next year

In pakistan they thought they had but some one threw a bomb ands found an Armalite.

The UK, USA dictatorships ? come on! i for one dont agree.

Bush a fool? certainly but you country is still one of the best in the world

your text is well written and i applaud you for giving some life to this failing site

I agree with you Nick , tho it's more THEM behind Bush & 'dick head'' Chaney . It is no difrant hear in the U K , I fear. The fashits are far more serfistercaited, than the faists of yester year. It seams to me , that the only means to fight back is the likes of us in our writeings . And the comedy of the times we live in.

well writan , Stan equally well drawn , Don . With very good points well made. You poem reminded me of a film made in the 50's Stan , on the subject of evolstion and crastaisom being talt in a school in a mid west school. Maybe you two coukd do a pece on that as a reminder , Stan and Don. Just a thort.
All the best ken ( D Williams )
