This blog hasn’t had anything to say about recent events in US politics.
Apparently, there’s an election going on and it’s of some consequence to people outside of DC and/or to those who don’t work for the government. Since it won’t effect my life at all and since I don’t consider myself too smart to watch football, I haven’t been paying attention. For the life of me, I can’t figure out why people care.
I can’t resist a comment on the YouTube video/terrorist attack thing though.
It’s also pretty funny that the President and all his men thought we would feel better about the attack if was the fault of a YouTube video. Everyone will love us as soon as we outlaw YouTube videos!
I want to talk about something else though. Certain people believe the US should not restrict immigration at all. In other words, said people would be fine with a couple hundred million Muslims, for example, moving to the US.
Lots of people have written about various findings which suggest that mixing populations is a bad idea. However, it’s pretty retarded to pretend that Islam isn’t a special case. As these riots have demonstrated (as if more demonstration was necessary), Islam is incompatible with certain freedoms, like freedom of speech and expression and religion.
Perhaps some of these freedoms are over-rated. Nevertheless, it’s very odd to claim that you like liberty and that you support a policy that’s totally incompatible with liberty.
I once had a long conversation with an “anarcho-communist” and was equally baffled.
