    Did any of the graduates get up and leave?

    I remember when I was in the Philippines years ago, President Marcos' daughter spoke at hour NCO club for Philippine-American day.

    She proceeded to tell everyone how the US came in to the Philippines and bullied the government into allowing out bases there - how their life is threatened because of our presence, etc.

    Half the people left during her speech.

    The Philippine government issued an apology the next day. Something about an apparent negative reaction to some medication she was taking.

    Yeah.....right.

    I had to listen to Kay Bailey Hutchinson at my daughters commencement. It almost kept me from going. Lucky me, I got to hear her spout her resume of all that she's done for texas universities as she gets ready to campaign for governer. :blah2:

    I got to listen to Bill Clinton at a West Point graduation speech. It was a so-so defense of his Bosnia policy.

    She and others like her would never dream of moving away from the nation that has made them so rich and powerful based on a system which they feel is attrocious and should be dismantled (for everyone else but them). Wealth should be redistributed (as long as too much isn't taken from her). All people should have free access to healthcare (as long as she and her children can see a doctor the moment they want to).

    And most importantly: Nations around the world shouldn't have to deal with America's disgusting consumerism and imperialistic tendencies (just so long as she can still sell them all a PEPSI).
