Popular Post Keith Pommerening Posted February 4, 2017 Popular Post Share Posted February 4, 2017 Now correct me if I am in error, but look at European immigration from the start... Early immigrants were not only smart enough to realize that life in Europe should be better and that opportunities were too restricted, but they also had the gumption to do something about it! Leave. They showed-up here looking for a chance to make their lives better. Germany, Poland, Ireland, Italy, France, Sweden, Norway, Russia lost some of their best and most ambitious. Then and WWI came and culled some of the best that was left. Then more immigrated to the US. Well then the shit hit the fan again and WWII culled the best and brightest, again. Then some more immigrated to the US. They didn't show up here looking for food stamps, snap cards, Obama phones, Obama Care, heating assistance, day care assistance, housing assistance, free college education, public transportation, wanting to change the country to their religious model, ... What they were looking for is opportunity, a chance to make a better living, work, freedom, become Americans. So now Europe is trying to do as best they can, with what they have left, after being culled, of the best and brightest, so many times. I don't understand why we look to Europe as if they have the answer for a better way to live. Why would we want to be like them. What do they have to offer? Traffic circles, some rendition of socialisms, tiny cracker box cars, some highly subsidized versions of public transportation, housing that resembles sardines in a can, tiny narrow cobble stone streets,..... Quaint places to visit. Well that should be enough for you to understand the obvious. Thanks, Keith 9 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
