WUI (Writing under the influence)

Somebody once said we are all Americans, sometimes born in the wrong places.
On a warm autumn day in 1986, while enjoying beer with my college buddies,
I decided to join my new homeland.

I've come to appreciate the ideals that helped create this great country.
Liberalism, political-correctness, multiculturalism and moral equivalence
are destroying it.

This is one of those things I really don't get about Americans. Horses are not pets. And the comment about "eating horses = eating humans" is just plain stupid. The funny thing is that we are supposed to be so open minded to other cultures. I don't want to live in France or Italy but on this one topic they are right: horse meat is just delicious, especially the carpaccio style. I'd also tell you more about my trip to China and dogs....

I wasn't sure how long one is supposed to wait before saying anything bad about somebody who just died. I know many on the left didn't wait 5 minutes after Reagan died but I'm talking about normal people. So I wanted to wait maybe a week to say that Cronkite never apologized for having lost the Vietnam war and for millions who perished in the aftermath.

I didn't realize that it only takes 3 days of respect before somebody can write
"Walter Cronkite Has Blood on His Hands"

At least fewer and fewer people trust in what they are told by so called newsmen anymore. Just as Carter gave us Reagan, Cronkite gave us talk radio and Fox News, and may eventually kill NYT, ABC, CBS, etc.

If Palin said we need to spend money to avoid bankruptcy she would be loughed out of Alaska if she hadn't resigned.

I'm telling my kids to leave the US and to feel guilty about it if the state takes more than 51% of what they make. Not that 50% 45% even 30% are much better. But at 51% I'm no longer a free individual. I'm a slave of the state. If the US doesn't build a fence to keep people out, in 50 years it may build a fence to keep people in.

Also, they should leave if they have to support geezers who today we are over-populated but at the same time vote for more taxes on the young ones so they can have their heap replacements.

The transformation of developed societies — either into old folks' homes (like Japan) or semi-Islamized dystopias (like Amsterdam, Brussels, etc) — will lead, in fact, to emigration. A young German or Japanese circa 2040 will have no reason whatsoever to stay in his native land and have most of his income confiscated in a vain attempt to prop up an unsustainable geriatric welfare system. So many will leave. Where will they go? At one time the obvious answer would have been America — but Good King Barack seems determined to saddle us with the same unaffordable entitlements that have scuttled the rest of the west.
