Time to gas up the escape pod.
I gotta hope that either the system lasts for a while, or that God's got my butt, and that I can use my street smarts and perception to skate by.
Got ya in there :)
I love you, Laz!!!
You hit it well.
Please add me to your ping list.
Actually most people in the universe don’t know if I exist and that’s the way I prefer it.
You got it! And thanks!
Sweetie, you've always been one of my favorite ... posters. [wink]
May I be 40 again?
Sailing class, even on a lake, could be useful. If you can sail a small boat, you can sail a big one. The skills scale up nicely. Marinas are full of cheap boats that need a little work, but are “liveaboard-ready” immediately. Just a thought...of course, you are not close to salt water. But that is how my mind thinks.
You've got considerable ability there. I remember when you were a noob... LOVE the editorials.
I believe we are in the times discussed in Revolutions. Everything I'm seeing tells me we are in a war for our very souls.
Although Revolutions would have been a great chapter name, too.
Wow, even the French can be converted to conservatism by Texas!
Yes it was Texas that converted them. They have lived in several other places before moving to Houston, New Orleans and somewhere on the east coast. After moving here they decided they wanted to be Texans, she is French and he is a Brit. They got their US citizenship a number of years ago and are extremely conservative. Great neighbors too, we get along so well.
add me to your ping list, please...
I didn’t see this yesterday and I’m glad first off that this brilliant, concise piece has opened up FR to original conservative thought. It’s hardly vanity to explain, ponder, or dissect the world according to our view. I hope to be able to attempt one day to follow in your footsteps.
Second, how right you are about Europe. The decade I spent there was a “soft” one as you describe. With so many weeks of paid vacation and 90% of your salary in unemployment, everyone was living easy.
Now they are all discovering like the grasshopper that they haven’t prepared for the time when the bills came due. They are suicidally politically correct to their growing Muslim populations.
And while they dance in the streets after electing a socialiste in France, there must be some concern about where all this pretty money is going to come from, right? They can’t possibly be as immature as my kids when they think that if you need money, you go to the ATM and money will come out. Can they be?
Thank you, kind sir, for your comments.... but most of all, thanks for confirming my thoughts about Europe!
