Having read a good portion of this “piece”, let me say that the author has a misconception about many Americans. That is, he feels they should “care” about the rest of the world. The actual truth is that Americans, like most other folk around the world, “care” about their situation first.
It is not that we begrudge the rest of the world a good life, let them work for it as we’ve done (and our predecessors have done). It will all work out.
In the meantime, we need to return to the idea of “American exceptionalism”, it is important and timely.
Never would have guessed that he writes comic books.
Poor feller. Grew up in Iran and now lives in San Francisco. How can you blame him for having a sick mind with no grasp of any decent morals.
His whole rant just shows that “brown” cannot make it without “white’s” money, and, therefore, white’s themselves.
Skin color does not denote superior knowledge, they thought if the white man can do it so can the black man....problem is the Dutch had been there 300 years and knew how to use the land. Most of the white Africans were murdered, men women and children by the black natives....but of course all the countries boycotted South Africa when it was a dutch government and now they don't care about the natives lack of food now.
The self righteous destroyed a prosperous country because they are themselves racist and see only color..
The dutch government themselves turned over the country due to unrest and boycotts. The smart one's left, and there aren't too many dutch Africans left in the country....just my humble opinion based on what I have read....
It was illegal to buy Krugerrands /sp. a funny side effect is that when Coleman Young was mayor of Detroit he got caught with a trunk full of them....oops
I have never contacted an author of a posted article until this time and I did so because I felt him was so terribly wrong in his logic and thinking.
Thanks to boxsford for a healthy response to my article on Iranian.com. IRDC is the most anti Islamic Republic of Iran website, banned by the Iranian government because it exposes the many crimes of Iran against it’s own people, never mind the fraud it is perpetrating in the world. So I am by no means islamic, shiite, or a sympathizer of the regime.
That being said, I think many who overreacted to my article which was in reaction to another fraud I observed, namely the Beck ratings raising ploy, and Palin’s glom-on wannabe, moneymaker, and 2012 moves.
The fault in my opinion lies at the feet of what I called “White America”.
It is utterly dumbfounding to me that in a model of democracy, the White majority (85% of the US is still white in spite of what you think you see in the inner cities), has abdicated it;s involvement in voting and politics, allowing the kinds of policies we have seen, especially recently to get past scrutiny, never mind stopping them from their disastrous path.
My piece was a wake up call to what could happen when you let the Becks, Palins, (and now apparently the Rove’s) govern the roost. In my opinion, as an objective un-tainted outside observer, these cock-a-doodle-doos have nothing in common with what is simply the right thing to do.
But they do remind me a lot of how back home in what used to be the “Good Iran” Khomeini, Rafsanjani, and Ahmadinejad betrayed the Iranian people with promises and fakery that ended up showing nothing more that contempt for the people who merely wanted freedom from an oppressive (US puppet) Shah.
Just as Iranians then were “played”, I noticed the same deja-vu familiar body language of lies, and false promises of Beck and Palin posing with strategically sniffed sniffles and alligator tears of pseudo-patriotism. Rove’s recent comments, literally spun my head and took me back to an almost exact similar comment by a politician who was later executed by the right-wing-extremist faction who finally took power in Iran, as soon as Khomeini died and could no longer block them. Yes, Khomeini in hind-sight, was the moderate cleric!
Additionally because white America has been asleep at the wheel, things have become all to easy for immigrants who as you can see in California if you take a driver’s test in over 15 languages, don’t even have to learn passable English. When I go to a store owned by an undoubtedly hard working American dream seeking immigrant, if I can’t understand what they are saying, it is me who must apologize, or be embarrassed. WTF?
Instead of taking the reins and guiding the immigrants who are flocking to the US because of the continued bad US foreign policies (you allow by being silent) that makes staying “back home” impossible, I have seen a xenophobia build up against immigrants. Which in a post Hitler, Apartheid, Khmer Rouge, Balkan ethnic cleansing world, is utterly retarded. Never mind un-American. I keep waiting for John Wayne to walk over and punch someone out for beating the Apache who dared ask for a drink at the bar!
Here is an example of the kind of conservative thought and pragmatism I am suggesting, namely that Sorry, we cannot afford (fiscal conservatism) to print 17 different versions of a driver’s license test, so you need to take a class (Good for English language business growth and job creation) and learn the language of your new home, if you want to drive or run a business in the US.
This is an example of my call to you guys (assuming most here are conservative and part of the majority white who I claim have been asleep since Reagan).
Barring this kind of “NO we can’t afford that” and others like it, from the 85% majority in the US, the only alternative I suggested was that you are all going to have to learn to love lamb.
Yes it was said with a lot of disdain, and not too little irony.
Hope this clears my point up.
Bruce, you forgot to stick out your tongue, roll your eyes and wag your your fingers. Childish petulance isn't complete without the proper punctuation.
You have a very, very strange point of view, bozkuhi. It resembles that of politicians who consider much of America “flyover country”.
Sounds like a couple of thousand words to say, “We will bury you.”
Hawk, this is you, isn’t it?
It was intended as an attention getting wake up call.
A big welcome to FreeRepublic!! Good to see you here!
Thanks, I am here to take my punishment and/or dole it out if necessary!
