Many Germans have a screwy idea of what the U.S. is like. My ex-girl friend’s sister married a German doctor and lives in Germany. Some years back her sister was going to visit us. We liv in western Wisconsin. She was going to fly to Milwaukee, rent a car, and drive across the state to where we lived. Her German doctor husband ruled that out because he said it was too dangerous. Why? Was he worried about traffic accidents? No, he ruled it out because American motorists were constantly shooting at other cars and killing other motorists. Complete slaughter on American highways by gun-toting, wild west killers. And this guy was a doctor.
Absolutely NOTHING matters except PR. Thats a godless philosophy, and it is exactly how Democrats think - and they think they can ALWAYS control the PR.
We have a tremendous education problem on our hands to get people to be willing to see past the PR. How do we do that? We certainly cant expect Karl Rove to do it; hes far too busy preventing us from nominating a Reagan type who would be effective in that educational effort.It almost could make you wish that the Special Persecutor Bush had allowed his Attorney General to name had nabbed Rove, as he desperately tried to do.
Hollywood shootem-ups, Jerry Springer baby daddies, rap music, and turpentine swilling sadistic cult leaders .. that’s what the rest of the world mostly sees from our leftist entertainment exports. It’s no wonder that anyone comes here at all.
There was a time when we used to export more wholesome fare.
