Just wait until Mrs. Rev learns that freelance writing is a secure form of income...she'll be thrilled.
Think about Carolyn Parrish though though. What did she do? In a statement that was supposed to off the record she said, "Those American bastards. I hate them." She expressed the feelings of everybody, including the British, at a NATO meeting where the US was essentially telling everybody that they would do as the US said or else.
She spoke out against, "the coalition of the idiots," who are making the world a more dangerous place by promoting a weapons system that does not work and is unlikely to work anytime soon. That coalition of idiots isn;t just made up of Americans, BTW. It even includes Ms. Parrish boss...the spineless and none to bright Paul Martin.
If you were any sort of business person, grimy, you would realise with unerring clarity what a dangerous position our trade relationship with the US has put us in. We are now a retailer with, for all intents and purposes, only one customer. No self-respecting business person would ever promote that as a solid business plan.
