Nowdays all we have is "leaders" and songs like this are just what they deserve at best.

europe is a sideshow.

g-pap is a joke, l-pap is a dope.

real action is in middle east — will america and israel tag team iran...

the same hawks who came out for that stupid waste of money in 2003 (remember those weapons of mass destruction??) are making hawkish noises over iran being a "threat"

G-Pap's a cunt.

But he offered to give his people the vote.  Then he got the rug pulled out from under him by Obama and Merkozy.

So what can you do?

Every flock of Lemmings has a leader which they will all follow when he decides to run of a cliff.

By "we" he means the rest of the flock.

There's no such thing as a "world leader."

How's that for respect?

Yep, stupid people respected world leaders and will continue to do so.

Respect is earned, not inherited or elected into thereof.  Oh, most people think it can be bought. Even a blue light special. Go ahead, buy it, the fed will pay for it.

It is so stoopid,it is silly and is sick. I've shit my pants so many times in the past years, I want brown underwear.

Can we please stop calling them "leaders"? They never were, never will be and never we supposed to be. They are supposed to be our "representatives". They are in fact representatives, just not ours.

Well now, not here in the USA. Here, the Congress are our representatives, the Courts are our judges, and the President is, in fact, due to Executive Privalege, our leader.

Department of Justice falls under which of the three wings of the US Government (executive, legislative, or JUDICIAL)? If you said Executive, give yourself one point.

Years ago I respected Reagan as a great leader, but his idea of the 'Plung Protection Team' may have been the vehicle that ultimately does in the country he was trying to save. Very ironic if you ask me. the security blanket of having the stock market do well at all costs is a simplistic pagan financial spell that is worthless, yet we'll have our financial witch doctors swear of it's effectiveness of bringing us prosperity. No wonder modern society sought to discredit 'white magic' & 'black magic' and our Christian sensibilities brought us to great scientific knowledge and accomplishments. But our spoiled and corrupted society has us rejecting our monotheistic origins and we have gone back to the slavery of paganism and the occult of worshipping pure numbers and formulas like modern derivatives, as if complication alone was enough to qualify as solidly reasonable science.

True.. When's the last time you heard something truely profound like quotes from 17th and 18th century?  In the 20th Century, those quotes are few and far between.. At least, from world leaders.. The implication is fairly simple..

Absolutely it's bad, and cowardly. It's like papa buying a house, boat, car and hookers. When he goes belly up and the creditors are at the door, he decides that his family should vote on whether or not they move.

They want us to return to the era of debtors prison, even if we return to the era of post WWI were punitive actions slammed the Germans even more after the war it would be a suicidal trend. We need to return to the idea of being forced to eat one's investment losses and have no ultimate last resort lender. If we had the huge spector of failure looming over each investment decision we would not have as much wreckless abandon in investments like the ones promoted by the government, like the  house-for-everyone-idea.

That's what happens when people abandon responsibility for their own lives, delegating it to criminals.
