Admission

Ok, I'm admit that President Mrs. Obama's gift to Gordon Brown's ( President of England) children (2 boys) was kind of cheesy, but in his / her defense, President Obama is really burning the midnight oil trying to fix Bu$hies shattered economy.

And President Obama has said that we all really need to do are part to make this thing work.

So I was thinking of maybe helping (pitch in) to get some thing nice for Gordon Brown's children on behalf of all the people (especially like minded progressives like myself) of the USA. I was thinking of maybe some Target gift cards.

If you think this would be a great idea (if I say so myself) like that time I sent Green Day CDs to Palestinian children charitys, please say so.

Lets get this thing off the ground!

UPDATE: I am so excite about this project that I went ahead and made a new banner for it so lest get the word out!



UPDATE 3/9/2009 I redid the logo for this campaign from scratch because its important for it to show sincerity

The DVD's were a better gift than the bomber jacket that Bush gave Brown, the Helicopters kind of go with the jacket.
BOTH men have more important things to do than swap party favors, I'm sure Brown has access to a region 1 or a region free DVD player.
The biggest gift Obama gave Brown was probably a promise to keep US military bases in Britain in this economy.

Dude! You relly need to calm down

"Dude", You need to get some perspective.
As for calm... that's perfectly calm, so I guess you must be the on the edge excitable type. Stay away from loud noises.

No need to be getting defensive, I am just really concerned for your health.

Dean, why is this 1138 guy so angry all the time?

I think, personally, being obama pretty much is a gift in and of itself. We are all part of obama's royal 'we' (as in 'we are the change we've been waiting for'). It's sort of greedy to ask for more.

Besides, what's wrong with getting a 25dvd box set thing? (Can't help but feel there's a hint of an insinuation on 1138's part with his 'they have more important things to worry about than giving gifts).
A: It's a damn fine gift (+ patriotic). B: It's tongue in cheek. Sardonic, like Obama Himself. I bet brown had a chuckle about it (and enjoyed the movies too, better than downloading them off the internet in 700MB). Brown would've given Obama a box set of british films except they only made 3 or 4 films so he had to reach down to pieces of wood from old ships, which is quaint enough but is oh-so-serious and ultimately less useful.

Some say giving a gift like that is, well, something Bush would do. They choose to forget that Bush would give completely different films! Also, if Bush were to have done it, it wouldn't be with a self-aware chuckle. The suave, post-modern, sardonic, informal, tongue-in-cheek flair would all be missing. It would just be a 'hey here are some great American movies! I bet you could use these'. Makes me wanna cringe with embarrassment just to think about it.

Anon has some very valid point, especialy that there are only 3-4 British movies ever made, so realy how could Brown reciprocate?

Seriously after those Mr. Bean movies what else did they have to prove.

Which brings up the question of how would British people spell hollywood?

WOuld it be like: Holleywould or Houllywoud? They use to many 'U's' for my liking to be honest.

I just dont think there an important ally as all the other 170 nations are. But I still belive that we as citizens of the world should come together and get Gordon Browns children some Target gift cards to prove how generous we can be.

1138 said...

"Dude" You need to follow the link I didn't make -any- of those up.

NOTJakeTapper said...

Once again your anger is cloud your judgement. Also, stop lying.

1138 said...

I'm not lying about anything kid so stuff it back in your box and go cry.
There's no anger, so there's no clouded judgment.

Follow the link. Tell you what you don't follow the link, everyone else follow the link and then decide what you think of "dean" calling his readers liars.
