Botanical Gardens in the Middle East

After you showed up with symptoms of a brain tumor---
He would consult with his keepers, err.. partners, Chainsaw, Rumdum and Bullshitowitz, and conclude that you had really had a heart attack. Despite extensive tests which showed you had not had a heart attack he would insist on doing bypass surgery, despite his not being a cardiac surgeon. When the operation went sour, he would demand that foreign specialists bail him out, despite his having pissed on their shoes when they'd told him his diagnosis was wrong. As you lingered in a coma in the Recovery Room, he would deny any responsiblility for any problems, blaming them on a doctor who had left the hospital four years earlier. Then he would present you and your heirs with a colossal bill.
That's how Bubba Dubya operates.

I have received expert advice on which answer is correct, but have decided not to tell the UK parliament or public. Furthermore, I have absolute faith that George performed the catheter ablation on my heart earlier today, which proves he is in fact a cardiac surgeon. Don't listen to J del col, he's not party to what me, George and God discuss, and was probably set up by the BBC to undermine us.

I would hire the best surgeon and not worry so much about his English. When I had my surgery, I had it done by a person who talked like a longshoreman, but who learned how to put people back together in tents in Vietnam under fire.
The superficiality of the liberal approach is typified by your question.
It reminds me of a pair of hematologists who used to work as a team when I was a medical student. The first, who shall remain nameless, had the best bedside manner in the world. The patients *loved* him, as did the residents. He was articulate, had a wonderful sense of humor, and made people feel good about themselves. Unfortunately, he wasn't the best hematologist in the world, and occasionally had a lapse in clinical judgement. His partner was the opposite -- a sour, arrogant, taciturn man who you just hated to deal with. He was, however, an excellent technical clinician. The team worked by having the first guy come in and glad-hand the patients, while the second one made sure he didn't screw up.

Yeah, all liberals can be identified by their gratuitous use of analogy.
Unfortunately Georgie "I fought the Viet-Cong with paperwork in Alabama" doesn't have many records concerning his alleged military "service", so we must make our judgements based on other factors and not some fanciful omniscience that enables us to rank hematologists' technical abilities. He did claim to be a "War President" and he does in fact have excellent leadership ability ("Bring'em on"), so I guess that makes him the dour but excellent clinician and not Mr. Glad-bag, nice to see you. </sarcasm>
As for non-military matters, it's pretty clear that he also hasn't accomplished anything, unless you are somebody that can be identified by their gratiuitous use of 'liberal'.

That's OK. I'm telling you right now that your president is as dumb as a bag of hammers. And, in case anyone comes along and says he has a speech problem with a fancy name, but is otherwise a bright guy, forget it. There is no such speech problem.

Heh? Bush ain't dumb. He is "stupid ass" greedy.
The following are factual statements:
1) Bush is an oil man that failed in the oil business. 2) He failed in the oil business and being an oil man, oil is the first thing on his mind. 3) He failed to win the election. ALL of Congress let him win (including John Kerry and the Democrats). Why ?
They all knew there was less than 10 years of oil in the United States oil reserves, as did all of congress. He offered to double everyone's salary if they agreed in the near future, and he doubled everyone's salary... i.e., took the money out of the American citizen's pockets to put in his own pockets. Why ? The salary of the President was high enough to lead a very good life. It is what I call, "stupid ass greedy".
He had a plan ? He spent the the first nine months of 2001 doing what? Playing golf and planning something?
He decided on September 11th, 2001 to visit a classroom. Why ? How many times has he ever done this in his life? Why did he need to take a day for a photo opportunity ? He was already elected.
He is currently pumping 5 to 6 million barrels of oil out of Iraq each and every day, since July or August of last year. That's a lot of money. He's not dumb. He's plain "stupid ass greedy". There's a difference between dumb and "stupid ass greedy".
He sat in that classroom for 5 minutes waiting for something. What was he waiting for?
Bush is far from "dumb". "Stupid ass greedy" is what I call it.
He still hasn't identified nor caught the person that distributed the anthrax. It's gone around that news at times that the FBI investigated someone, but who was arrested and charged ?
He still hasn't caught Osama bin Laden. Salem bin Laden died on a Bush ranch though. Who killed Salem bin Laden ? Whose plane was Salem bin Laden flying and where was the plane launched from ? Where did it crash ? There's a lot of unanswered questions there.
I think the fact that he doubled his own salary for being in office confirms (1) he is "stupid ass greedy". He is NOT dumb.
He is so smart he thinks he's smart. Watch him when he speaks. He believes he is smart. Why does he think he's so smart ? Why ?
It goes like this... you've just pulled the most clever trick over on a bunch of your country people... and there are some that know as much as you do, but they are part of the fantasy. He knows they won't talk. They know he won't talk. Smart! Very smart! And George feels smart. He declared himself President. Smart! Very smart! He doubled his own salary. Smart! Very smart! He did this at the cost of the American Taxpayer.
Smart! Very very smart!
He presented a case to Congress where he could get their vote at any time in the future. Who in Congress disagreed with George when George declared war. George became the first guy in United States history to declare war on another country. He received unprecidented support from Congress. Smart! Very smart!
Holy cows! He's the smartest person that's ever resided in the White House. People will call him George Washington, or Thomas Jefferson, or at least compare him to such.
George definitely thinks he's smart. He thinks he's very very very smart. He however puts on the dumb act and pretends to be dumb at times. He puts on the speech act and pretends to be slow at times.
He has put the country into a compromising situation.
But he's protecting the oil wells in Iraq. He's pumping over 5 million barrels of oil out of Iraq each and every day. That is a lot of money. He raises the oil prices. That is a lot more money.
If anyone believes he's not in country of oil prices inside the United States, well it goes like this...
He takes country of one of the greatest oil supplies in the world, and he promises Saudi Arabia and other countries to raise prices and make them richer. That will account for the prices going up. He is so smart.
Dick Cheney is his business plan man. They are as tight as a tightly threaded button.
Now... if that is just plain old luck for George Bush, then so be it. But ask yourself what the chances are that Bush is that lucky?
The following represents opinion: He knows. He planned the attack on Iraq. Dick Cheney helped.
Now, more facts:
Some news agencies reported that George Bush and other White House officials started taking Cipro on September 11th, 2001. Why ? No one knew about the anthrax at that time... except for George Bush ?
The anthrax came from Fort Detrick, Maryland. New Scientist reported this fact in October 2001. George Bush and friends continued to insist upon calling them WMD. Why? He wanted Iraqi oil. He was a failed oil man. He needed to redeem himself.
Dick Cheney is his partner. They are as tight as a tightly threaded button.
George Bush continued to insist that the anthrax came from Iraq and there was anthrax in Iraq... this supported the WMD theory...
George Bush talks like he is real smart.
To me 1+1 is equal to George Bush + Dick Cheney (a tightly threaded button).
Now, all Republicans... Go ahead... tell me he's smart. I agree! I agree full heartedly. He's definitely smart. He left some holes though... whether the people of the USA believe it or not, that is their choice. I don't want to make anyone to believe anything. That is for you to decide. I'm just presenting what I believe is factual evidence of some things that just don't fit into the American Dream.
George Bush is very smart. He knows he's smart. When he talks, he talks like he is God. Like he knows everything, and perhaps he knows a lot more than you or I. That may very well be true, but it doesn't matter.
All statements about whether he's smart or dumb really mean nothing in the whole world of things. It shouldn't ever be brought to the forefront of anyone's head... because just thinking that you are smart is plain stupid.
I do not want to be smart. Smart means bad things. :-) I do not want to ever think that I am smarter than the rest of the world. It just serves no purpose and it means I will open myself to failure.
My opinion: George Bush opened himself up for failure.

Although Bush's oil investments always failed, nevertheless he was personally always enriched. It was public investors who took the hit.
So too he lost the election but became president anyway, & again it is the public that takes the hit with environmental degradation, backdoor draft, fantastic debt, & taxbreaks for industries that will relocate in the third world.
Bush makes cat puke smell like roses, but when Kerry uses a new-speak phrase like "winning the peace" (a variation of 1984's "war is peace"), it's hard to think of him as anything but a lesser of two evils.
Bush is such a skank it shoudn't be necessary to lie to make him look bad. He really is bad. So why did Kerry make that crap up about Bush cutting by 35% funding to clean up stockpiled nuclear weapons in Russia? Bush has done so many things that range from bad to downright evil, but he didn't do that one. Why toss in a criticism that has no basis in fact? Kerry is in fact fairly expert in this area & couldn't possibly have just made a mistake. He just lied, as boldfaced a lie as the many that Bush tells, giving Kerry no high road.
Kerry's use of new-speak & his eagerness to tell whoppers as big as those of the Bushleaguers does not make him a heartwarming choice bound to restore a nation to a better track. Are liars & bigger liars really the best our country has to offer for the presidency??

I can't help but ask what your position is...
What is your position?
I don't trust either one of them. They are both trying to keep Ralph Nader out of the election. And I was a Kerry supporter for awhile. I'm personally leaning towards Nader but that could change...
It's definitely not going to be Bush. And I hate thinking global conspiracy about the Congress, but that's what it looks like to me. The motive is there, Iraqi oil. Bush is an oil man. Cheney is an oil man. They somehow put themselves into office even though they were not elected by the people... it is telling me conspiracy... and it is only in the election that Bush presents himself as a good guy.
Just curious, because I feel so all alone in thinking conspiracy.
460,000 people have asked for impeachment, so I know I'm not alone, but I don't talk with any of them. I feel like I'm going out on a limb talking conspiracy.
No one wants to think conspiracy... it's just one of those things no one dares talking about, so the best I can do is present the evidence that indicates conspiracy and leave it at that. :-(
Is it wrong to see it all as a conspiracy ?
They're coming to take me away... haha! They're coming to take me away... Haha! Heehee! Hoho! To the funny farm! Where life is beautiful!
It's just all so wrong.

Poke around www.nti.org for more info on the questions you asked. Although the subject haunts me (as it should EVERYONE), I haven't read extensively enough to respond to your questions. But, my surface understanding is that the rounding up of stray nuclear materials has been on the backburner for no good reason, at least based on what we hear from Bush. I suspect the reason is that Bush would be able to discuss the issue publicly without botching the names of former Soviet republics.

Yeah, sure liberals live in their own little world. We get all our information from Pat Robberson, Rush Limbo and Ann Cutter. When we see state sponsored propaganda masquerading as a recruitment video, we believe it. Join the Airforce and become a glorified gas station attendent. Yeah, daddy I'm going ship off and be a hero. It's important. Freedom. Kill people. Hero. Blah blah.
You claim to have some idea of what is going on in the rest of the world, but I doubt you even know what's really going on in your own country.
Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go tell the servant to white wash the picket fence and I am already late for my tennis doubles with Biff and Buffy and then off to buy a gift for my broker. I really do need to find a new chauffeur ... I mean 'driver' ... my faux pas. Oh dear me, I've done it again. I must have had too much _chardonay_ last night. Oh, and did my boys ship the Statue of Liberty back yet? Yes, because this is the little liberal world that I live in.

I have a friend named Google.
Here is a list of Botanic Gardens in Israel.
http://www.biologie.uni-ulm.de/systax/infgard/gardens/israel.html
Here is a link to a site that can help you search for Herbaria in a country of your choice. Most Middle Eastern countries appear to have several Botanic Gardens or Herbaria.

Go to google and enter Botanical Gardens +Middle East. Also try gardens +Middle East for some interesting history sites.
Doing precedent research on existing botanical gardens in the Middle East. Can anyone point me to a resource or provide names of any notable examples in this climate? Does anyone know of any with architectural facilities such as conservatories.
Any and all help will be much appreciated. Hiroshi Okamoto
