78F and rising…… summer in Houston.
As I do a quick survey of the headlines, looking for a topic to toss into the ring, I’m struck by how far things have gone in just a year or two.
A journalist in Britain is jailed for reporting on official malfeasance and dereliction of duty, under the flimsiest of excuses, and despite it being a certainty that his treatment in prison will be MUCH worse than his ‘crime’ warrants.
A comedienne who has made a career out of her abrasiveness and insulting people has her livelihood destroyed (and hundreds of others too) because she insulted a public figure, and in the ‘wrong’ way.
Everywhere you look states and countries are being destroyed by years of bad economic decisions (often driven purely by ideology) that ignore reality and are based on mostly wishful thinking.
We see the results of really poor policy choices, that no one seems to support, yet they continue… “Muslim Mob Storms Maine Park – Beats Park Goers with Sticks and Fists While Laughing”
These are Somali immigrants in MAINE. http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2018/05/shock-video-muslim-mob-storms-maine-park-beats-park-goers-with-sticks-and-fists-while-laughing/
I can’t think of anywhere in CONUS that is LESS like Somalia than Maine (or the MSP area which is also home to a huge Somali population.)
MS-13 gang members have murdered over 50 people in LONG ISLAND, NY and places like Maryland. This isn’t an issue confined to Cali or the border states, they are EVERYWHERE.
Regarding the Maine attack, the mayor had this to say ” “When you have large, diverse groups of people in the same place you are bound to have incidents. Lewiston is no different in that respect than any other medium to large city,”
So what is the benefit of diversity again? And what does accepting a lie, and living as if it was true, do to one’s mental state? The residents of the former Soviet states spent decades acting as if they believed the lies, under threat of force. How is our current PC (which used to be a joke, used with a sneer) culture any different from living under soviet propaganda? We are making a generation of psychotics.
I know I tend toward doom and gloom. But just cast your mind back, two, five, and 10 years. Think about the really vast changes that have occurred during that time. In your opinion, do things seem to be getting better or worse? Are we moving toward freedom and prosperity, or away?
