Pierce Brosnan "...we cannot and should not endure another four years of Bush and his junta."
Official Pierce Brosnan Website ^ | Pierce Brosnan

Posted on 10/26/2004 4:42:55 AM PDT by occam's chainsaw

September 23, 2004 Pierce Received American Citizenship at the US District Court House in Los Angeles

Pierce later commented on his decision to become a citizen: "What's at stake?

This is my first election as a U.S. citizen. I came to America 23 years ago and never looked back. My appreciation for the heart and soul of America comes from living here for 23 years, having 3 American born children and an American wife.

When I came here as a young man I felt embraced by a landscape of people and a community where any dream you had in your heart, could be made possible by hard work and determination. I feel especially privileged today because I have traveled extensively and seen the capacity of America to influence the world for the better.

As an Irishman, I am proud to become an American citizen, but these last four years have been the longest of any I have witnessed. This is not an ordinary time for the exercise of ordinary civic duties. This is a defining moment in history where we must be certain that our policies ensure a sustainable future. It saddens me deeply to see this country in a state of confusion and pain at the hands of a government that lies. Over the course of just four years, we have gone from being a nation loved and admired… to one that has put the world at large against us.

Never before has the world been faced with such common global threats and never before has there been a power like the United States which can do so much to influence whether these threats become catastrophes… or challenges to overcome.

Global warming, protecting the oceans, ending terrorism, eliminating nuclear weapons, sustaining the rain forests, and so many other vital issues need genuine leadership. Leadership that works with the world, not against it. Leadership that promotes peace, not war.

I know the weight of an American vote. There is no public duty as important and never has there been a time in history with as much at stake as now.

We the people must… Vote for a safe and sustainable planet. Vote because we care about the future. Vote because we love life. Vote because we know that we have a common destiny or no destiny at all.

On December 18, 2002, in Washington D.C., Bush was quoted as saying "if this were a dictatorship, it would be a heck of a lot easier, just so long as I'm the dictator." but about 140 years ago, a truly great president, Abraham Lincoln, was quoted as saying "to sin by silence when they should protect makes cowards of men."

Ladies and gentlemen, we must vote because our lives are at stake and we cannot and should not endure another four years of Bush and his junta.

Thank you."

Mr. Brosnan, I knew James Bond. James Bond was a friend of mine, and sir, you're NO JAMES BOND and never will be.

He ought to just STFU and be thought intelligent, then to open his mouth and remove all doubt. Well, actually, even he if STFU he'd still be considered a dope.

We had them here as well, coming out of the woodwork to get on TV or in the newspapers to spout their ignorant (or at least mis-informed) opinion, especially when their career as an entertainer was quiet. But our man Honest John won, I almost heard them crying.
No publicity is bad publicity?? BZZTTT!!!!!

White cats with blue eyes are nearly always born deaf. It's a genetic thing.

I've always thought that the human genes for incredible good looks and for muteness should travel together, too.

Anyone that comes over to this wonder land of freedom and choice and LEECHES off of it for 23YEARS should be sent back to his/her home country for the same amount of time before allowing someone the precious gift of citizenship in the great country. He's made his millions off of us and never cared enough to be a citizen. What a hypocrite!

Sounds more like a well rehearsed speech rather than just a comment

"Over the course of just four years, we have gone from being a nation loved and admired… to one that has put the world at large against us."

I hear this a lot here in Oz as well,everyone seems to hate America and in particular Bush...it pours from the media with monotonous regularity.

In reality it's the left that hates America and they seem to be pretty much the same in most countries,as do conservatives I expect.

Reading through his "comment" he actually comes across (on the surface) as anything but clueless.That's what's a little scary as way too many people don't seem to give enough serious thought to these things.

Uh, is that your order of priorities? How about leadership that protects the U.S.?

The reason the US is the greatest country in the world is that it is NOT European in any way shape or form. Now these importANTS come over, say it's a great nation, and then proceed to try to make it just like the place they left.

Ummm... yeah.

WOT = Live and Let Die.

Paul McCartney wrote the song "Freedom" sitting in a plane on the tarmac in NYC on 9/11.

At his concerts he played it, and followed it with Live and Let Die.

They go hand in hand.
