Lets have a war...

Global warming has underlying factors that need to be addressed.

These are overpopulation and rampant consumerism.

To knock these on the head we need to be having more wars. It kills off a few and leaves the rest happier to be alive, not taking things for granted. Remember how happy everyone was during the old days? Well, ask any elderly person, things were better then and they had World Wars 1 and 2. Do the math.

What country are YOU going to invade and why?

I'm officially declaring war on Spain. Smug Spaniards with their nice climate and great food!! I'm gonna getchya!!

Oh, and I may invade Ireland as well. Not for any particular reason, I just thought thats one I could definitely win.

So who's with me? Lets take over the world on our bikes and swing broom handles and other weapons around!!

(Although this all starts tomorrow as its raining today)

Seriously, come get me when there's jello, chocolate pudding and mashed potatoes involved - those are the only kinds of "fights" I'm involved in these days.

We don't even have an army so we can't go to war - sorry.

Reducing population reminds me of the following "Everyone is in favor but no one wants to die"

I guess everyone is in favor of reducing the population, but no one ... you can fill in the rest.

I'm doing my part in the overpopulation problem. No kids for me.

I'm sorry I can't take part in your war play. I'm a pacifist.

In truth, controling population is the only real cure - and learning to live simpler.

Way back when ... in the 1970's... I became environmentally conscious, the buzz word and major worry was GLOBAL COOLING. So, I am glad that all of my actions/inactions since that point have had the intended result.

I would take over Guam and make it my own private island, good swimming and hiking. Oh, I forgot, I would have to defoliate the entire island to find all of the invasive non-native snakes.

Well, there goes paradise.

I would invade Canada with the sole goal of capturing DocRay for internment in Guantanamo. Eliminating the hot air he expels might resolve all global warming overnight.

He would only be allowed one visitor. Conjugal visits from Pcad.

I`d like to invade Canada. Don`t really want to hurt anyone there though. Well except for the whinny Quebec ans they need biatch slapped from time to time. Seems like it would make border crossin` a lot simpler plus Canadian girls know how to party. Doubt there would be a big population shift as -10f keeps the riff-raff out. So anyways I say Canada. Then on the other hand...

Lets invade Mexico. Don`t really want to hurt anyone there either but hey Mexico is F@#ked. Lets give them some solid government. Lets up their wages. Lets make those poor breeders use condoms. Lets hold them to the US EPA standards even though its US industry causing all the pollution. If Mexicans want to be in the US so bad lets just invade and make them US in one fell swoop.
