Sounds good to me

The following was sent to my email. I have no idea if Robin Williams ever said this, or if he even thought this. But, the email said it was his little speech, so that's who I'm giving credit to. If anyone has information to the contrary, let me know and I'll fix it pronto (See update below-RD). I just liked it so much I wanted to post it.

Raging Dave's
Robin Williams' ^ plan!

I see a lot of people yelling for peace but I have not heard of a plan for peace. So, here's one plan..................

1. The US will apologize to the world for our "interference" in their affairs..... past & present. You know, Hitler, Mussolini, Tojo, Noriega, Milosovich and the rest of those 'good ole boys.' We will never "interfere" again.

2. We will withdraw our troops from all over the world, starting with Germany, South Korea and the Philippines. They don't want us there. We would station those troops at our borders so no one can sneak through holes in the fence.

3. All illegal aliens have 90 days to get their affairs together and leave. We'll give them a free trip home. After 90 days the remainder will be gathered up and deported immediately, regardless of who or where they are. France would welcome them.

4. All future visitors will be thoroughly checked and limited to 90 days unless given a special permit. No one from a terrorist nation would be allowed in. If you don't like it there, change it yourself and don't hide here. Asylum would never be available to anyone........We don't need any more cab drivers or 7-11 cashiers.

5. No "visiting students" over age 22. The older ones are the bombers. If they don't attend classes, they get an "F" and it's back home baby.

6. The US will make a strong effort to become self-sufficient energy wise. This will include developing non-polluting sources of energy but will require a temporary drilling of oil in the Alaska wilderness.......The caribou will have to cope for a while.

7. Offer Saudi Arabia and other oil producing countries $10 a barrel for their oil. If they don't like it, we go some place else. They can go somewhere else to sell their production. (About a week of the wells filling up the storage sites would be enough.)

8. If there is a famine or other natural catastrophe in the world, we will not "interfere." They can pray to Allah or whomever, for seeds, rain, cement or whatever they need. Besides most of what we give them is stolen or given to the army. The people who need it most get very little, if anything.

9. Ship the UN Headquarters to an isolated island some place. We don't need the spies and fair weather friends here. Besides, the building would make a good homeless shelter or lockup for illegal aliens.

10. All Americans must go to charm and beauty school. That way, no one can call us "Ugly Americans" any longer.

The Language we speak is ENGLISH.....learn it...or LEAVE...

Now, ain't that a winner of a plan?

UPDATE: Claudia has informed me that this whole thing is an urban legend. I can't say I'm surprised, because Williams is somewhat leftist. However, here's the question I have for you:

Would you change the speech at all? Why or why not?
