“Yes, we must secure the border. I mean, once people begin finding out what’s in Obamacare, millions will start trying to escape to Mexico.”

– Barack Obama

  1. Really funny, Keith. Or perhaps sad. Well, it might actually come true. Americans may start emigrating because of the taxes. For decades, bright and innovative people “fled” from here to other countries ( often the US ) with laws and regulations that didn´t prevent people from building enterprises , to earn money, to get rich. The US was seen as the Future. Since then we have learned from that earlier US and made our country much more business friendly and also reformed our tax laws. But as a small country, dependent on exports, we still have to get out in the world for other reasons. Innovative ,business minded people now often turn their eyes towards the East, towards Asia.

    • Well, I’d suggest Canada, though I fear we may not be too far behind the USA when it comes to major changes. It seems to me the North American Union will soon become a reality, and one-world government will be forced upon us in the foreseeable future.

  2. We’re going to stay right here and fight tyranny to the last breath…

    “You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children’s children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done.” — Ronald Reagan

  3. I am not a positive thinker as most people know, but I keep feeling we can wait this out–endure this mess. I think it might be looked on by history as a weird hop our politics took…I just hope so much unintended and intended nonsense is not set in concrete that everything shifts forever from kind of mavericky, wild and can-do to wussy, selfish, and stupid.

    • I do think sometimes of the little harbor off Dingle, Ireland, fishing boats bumping gently, a town with 100 pubs, cobbled streets…But I am laid up so much with arthritis I could not even visit, much less relocate by myself and manage. So I just come here and try to hold people accountable–hey, WH, we are not all adoring zombies.

      • I just saw Bill O’Reilly say that O has a 60% approval rating. How can that be, how on earth can that possibly be? Heads in the sand, I guess!

        • He did report that. Doesn’t it make you sigh. I also read in the WSJ of Jan 31 and I have reported on this myself–many schools no longer teach the R–‘ritin’. No more cursive. In the WSJ story they quoted kids who could not read notes their mother’s posted on the fridge about what they were supposed to do after school. Guess Mom needs to text them now. No one in one family could read Grandma’s recipes–Oh, well, go to Mickey D’s. They have afterschool clubs now where kids learn to “write” in cursive. What if the grid goes down, you idiots? I could scream. This is a redundant skill? What’s next? I blogged about a German pen that vibrates if you write something illegible or ungrammatical. Oh–just let the pen write, whatev! http://thwim.blogspot.com.
