“You made your choice, now kindly embrace it and leave this site to Americans.”
Son, I have been on here over four years longer then you.
You run your own life, and I will run my years of retirement. If Jim wants me gone, that will be his decision, not yours.
Obviously there is something in the word FREE, as in freedom, that has missed you.
You have a lot of nerve to complain about how someone else chooses to live their lives, and spew a lot of insults to someone who you do not know and claim to have no interest in.
Spend your time figuring out what to do with YOUR mess.
There is very little I can do, other then vote, to save America from the Obots and takers.
I take nothing, other then the social security that I paid into.
By the way, REAL Americans take life into their own hands, whether it be at home or in a foreign land.
They do not need babysitting from their government.
“.do people that ditch the country of their birth have NO family or friend here ?.”
Quite the contrary.
I have a daughter (30) in Memphis, and twin brothers in California, both lusting to get out and come here.
My daughter is online with us 24/7 and enjoying her new baby brother.
Yes, this is a third world country, and I contribute to making it better. I have a wife and child, not “girlfriends”.
I lived a number of years in former Communist countries of Europe before moving here.
There is nothing more I can do for America, other then vote.
You live your life as you like. I will run mine as I like, and ignore you sniveling dogs in a manger.
Thank God, the founding fathers did not think as you do, otherwise, you would be bowing to some monarch back in the UK.
People like that have no one left to care for them here, so they buy 12 year old whores in the philippines to compensate.
Wikipedia, and others.
Fables of Aesop (1722)
The Dog in the Manger
‘People frequently begrudge something to others that they themselves cannot enjoy. Even though it does them no good, they won’t let others have it. Listen to a fable about such an event.
There was a wicked dog lying in a manger full of hay. When the cattle came and wanted to eat, the dog barred their way, baring his teeth. The cattle said to the dog, “You are being very unfair by begrudging us something we need which is useless to you. Dogs don’t eat hay, but you will not let us near it.”
The fable shows that it is not easy to avoid envy; with some effort you can try to escape its effects, but it never goes away entirely.’
‘The stronger the passion is, the greater torment he endures; and subjects himself to a continual real pain, by only wishing ill to others.’
It is with this understanding that the idiom of ‘a dog in a manger’ is most often used.
“The Dog in the Manger”
Thank you Lucy for posting the definition.
It is easy to understand why some in America seem to be stuck,
and resentful of others that manage to lead their own lives.
I have as much love for America, as founded, as anyone.
Uncle Sam is one of my ancestors.
I do, however, choose my own life, and will not let some sore people try to make me feel guilty.
Remove Obama, Hillary, Pelosi, Reid and everything will revert back to normal.
You just have to have faith, blind faith a leap of faith etc.
Thanks for the info. Just out of curiosity, is there an Aesop’s Fable that deals with a guy on the second floor of a building which has a fire on the first floor, who keeps calling down to the people trying to put the fire out: “Hey, you guys are wasting your time! Why don’t you be as smart as me and just come up to the second floor? There’s no fire here” ?
