Stop the World, I Wanna Get Off!

I think that was the title of some, what, 1960s, musical?  But it’s how  I feel after the Dem debates.

Are you an Anne Rice fan? I am.  But what I’m thinking of right now, I can’t eben remember what novel, is something she wrote about America being the Ark.  The deluge is coming (again) but our country had absorbed and would preserve remnants of every ethnicity, every culture of the globe.  It’s all here in our mélange, like chalcedony: now a part of a greater whole, and inseparable therefrom, yet somehow distinct within it.

But that was when we were assimilating arrivals.

In our next election, given SCOTUS’ latest ruling, what were gonna have is a buncha voters who don’t speak our language, but they’ll know how to vote cuz they will have been furnished with a picture of the array that will confront them when the enter the voting booth.  That’ll inerringly guide them to the “straight Democrat” lever.  They will pull, or push, as the case may be.  And emerge to be plastered with an “I voted!” sticker, which they can’t read, but which they will be encouraged to grin over in front of CNN’s cameras, like the purple thumbs of those Iraqis so many years ago…how did that work out?

Yes, we the American people were the ones lucky enough to have made it onto the Ark.

But now, it’s overloaded and it’s sprung an irreparable leak.

I hope I’m wrong.

  1. You are not wrong, unfortunately. We are witnessing the death rattle. The dem candidates  have just incited the entire world to come across the border and be taken care of (in addition to voting for even more benefits).

    Are you being subsidized by the DNC these days?

    I don’t think that’s apt.  They think we’re doomed if we DONT take on more wretched refuse.Im sayin’  were doomed if we do.

    Numbers matter.  A couple of hundred thousand don’t make much difference in a country with a third of a billion population.  A million a year, well, maybe—it adds up, especially if they are mostly from one ethnic and linguistic group who will be able to resist assimilation.  But put on the science fiction author hat and ask the question, “How many people, given the choice and opportunity, would move to the U.S.?”  In 2013, Gallup did a survey and came up with 138 million.  That would dramatically change the demographics of the country, but it is absurdly low.  Probably on the order of one to two billion people would move to the U.S if that option were open at no cost to them.  The U.S. population would increase by between a factor of three to six without the time to build infrastructure to accommodate the new residents.  And those new residents, few of who have any familiarity with consensual government, would soon, joined by their progeny, elect those who would govern and subdue the legacy population.

    When somebody talks about “open borders”, just ask them, “What do you believe the optimal population of the United States to be?”  In my experience, they’ll say “humina, humina, humina” and never put a number on it.  This is obvious: the optimal population is sufficient dependent serfs to elect slavers to govern them, outvoting the legacy creators of wealth who will become the true serfs of the new regime.

    It’s your relentless negativism.  If you think this is irreparable, perhaps the best thing you can do is shut up about it and quit dragging people down with your moaning about how hopeless things seem to you.

    That is major-league harsh and hostile and I’m sure you regret it already.  (If not: you will.)

    It is lovely when people are moved to write here in a burst of joy and satisfaction, like ET did about her new home a few days ago.  I’ve done plenty of those posts myself.  But generally it’s when we’re UNhappy, angry, that we really feel the urge, the need, to write.  I’m so, so wretchedly sorry if  I pricked the bubble of optimism from wherein you were viewing the present political situation.

    Whyncha just avoid any posts  that have an even slightly scary title?   Because “shut up”, sir, I will not.

    You are just pushing buttons.   I see it worked.

    So long as there is any chance to avert disaster, we need all hands yelling our heads off about the consequences of Leftist policies.

    Have my buttons been pushed?  I think I’m just tired of seeing blatant displays of cowardice.

    Hmm.  Is there, as you say, “any chance to avert disaster”, or is the situation “irreparable”?  Are we really witnessing a “death rattle”, or is there some hope things can be turned around?

    I gave it a couple of days, and I’m not regretting it so far.

    You need to start showing more bravery and less cowardice when things don’t go as you expect.

    Nobody knows how this is all going to turn out, but things are far from over.  One of the best weapons an enemy has over his opponent is fear and demoralization.  That’s why cowardice in battle was historically an immediately executable offense.

    Remember, we’re all here  to help you!
