97% of Americans believe the US congress doesn't represent their(US citizens) best interests[edit]

[[1]] "DOBBS: And now, the results of our poll tonight: 97 percent of you responded saying the officials you elected are not representing your interests in Congress; 3 percent say they are"

This according to a CNN poll on Lou Dobbs about 2 weeks ago. If Australia wants to monkey-follow the USA in business,culture and government; this is what you have to look forward to; total hijacking of all major government political parties by big business and you'll be left with no voting choice except either "pepsi" or "coke".imo. These cultists, warmongers/war profiteers[[2]] should not be welcome in any civilized society. It's the ultimate "mafia" convention and Australian citizens are picking up the tab.Paulrevere2005 20:20, 24 August 2005 (UTC)

LMAO, it's not hard to tell who had their hand in this one. Another beaut' job Paul.

Thanks, but I didn't contribute much except some wikis; I thought this[[3]] would be good background info but it was quickly kicked out.Re;LMAO; Maybe it is a bit humorous in a dark way; the richest guys in the world getting the Aussie citizens to pay for the rich guys' parties and plots; but I don't really see the humor. I wonder what would happen if a few hundred of the regular hard working men of Sydney tried to get in and have a few shrimps at one of these parties they're paying for? Now that would be funny, I think. I mean they could at least try; maybe??? Paulrevere2005 20:24, 26 August 2005 (UTC)

What's a shrimp?

"Shrimps on the Bar B"? At least that's what Crocodile Dundee said. Maybe that's just some Hollywood mis-speak?- Paulrevere2005 13:27, 27 August 2005 (UTC)

"Throw another shrimp on the barbie" is a line from an advertising campaign promoting Australian tourism, and featuring Paul Hogan. Aussies actually call shrimps "prawns", but the other word was used because the adds aired in America. - Borofkin 23:43, 28 August 2005 (UTC)

Hoax[edit]

This story was actually a hoax: The Australian. Hopefully someone will write a new article covering this! Dan100 (Talk) 11:17, August 27, 2005 (UTC)

PS must say I didn't spot this - Ghost did, and then told be about it on IRC. Dan100 (Talk) 11:18, August 27, 2005 (UTC)
  • Another conspiracy theory?("somebody stole the website"). Maybe; sounds to me more like the old bush just didn't like the early publicity..he prefers to slither around in secret. Paulrevere2005 13:32, 27 August 2005 (UTC)
Um, I'm not entirely sure how to deal with this. I'll write a new article, but what should be done with this article? Just add some comments to indicate that it was actually a hoax, or do you think it should be deleted? Oh the shame of it all! - Borofkin 23:40, 28 August 2005 (UTC)


New article written and linked to from this article[edit]

Okay, I've written George H. W. Bush attendence at CEO conference reported to be hoax, and put a sentence at the top of this article indicating that 'twas a hoax, and pointing to the new article. - Borofkin 05:26, 29 August 2005 (UTC)

Hi,

B/c of the vandalism, this page is again showing up at Australia.

Not sure what can be done about that?
