What The World Thinks Of US


Thanks for the inspiring messages and email everyone! My dear sister summed it up nicely with this:

Some people have the vocabulary to sum up things in a way that you can quickly understand them. This quote came from the Czech Republic . Someone over there has it figured out. It was translated into English from an article in the Prague newspaper Prager Zeitungon.

"The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America.

Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those who made him their president."

LuAnn and I have been to Europe and we have been to Prague. I lost touch of a great Czech friend I met in our trip in 93. I can just hear Jorge and I having that very conversation. Pretty sad isn't it? It's so darn true it is humiliating. Talk about rigorous honesty, that sums it up not so nicely!

This what I was alluding to yesterday. It's our culture, our me first, want it now but can't afford it attitude, at any cost! It is also what I was alluding to in my blog about QE3. Although we follow Keynesian Economic Theory, QE3 does not address infrastructure like WPA did during the Great Depression. We have interest down to zero while our infrastructure falls apart.

I just read about the Olmsted Lock on the Ohio River failing, causing big shipment problems. It would have cost $880 million to repair in 1988 when it should have been done but now will cost $3 billion in 2020. Billions of dollars in goods move up and down the Ohio and barges are less full. The locks couldn't hold back enough water due to the drought.

QE3 dilutes the dollar so low in hopes of being able to afford the interest on our debt. We will make Greece look like childs play, maybe we already have.

That quote just sticks in my gut and makes me mad. Everyone I know and trust doesn't behave that way.

Has the silent majority become the angry minority?

  1. I've been saying the same thing ever since Obama was elected. Only a nation of immoral idiots would have elected such an evil person as their leader. And YES, I DO believe that he is evil to the core!

  2. They're probably the same idiots who voted for Bush... ;)

    Just watched 2016, what a junk propaganda movie!
    Did he say for real that Obama "reduces NASA budget to reconcile with Muslims?"

    I didn't find any proof of his claims that Obama "gave billions of dollars to Brazil, Columbia and Mexico to drill", I didn't even know that the government funded oil drilling at all even in the U.S., thought it was all private companies.
    He didn't stop the drilling in the Mexican Gulf either, just temporarily and rightfully, until they were cleared out. Just like companies recall products or ground planes when accidents happen.

    Same for the statement that he "reduces American nuclear arsenal, leaving America vulnerable". It was a worldwide consensus, not Obama's, and it certainly does not leave the U.S. vulnerable, unless you are aiming to have a stockpile large enough to destroy Earth several times over.

    But what worries me the most is how D'Souza thinks that the goal of "this insecure kid" is limited to following the path of a father he never knew, and does not give him credit to adapting to the situation or for learning on the job. Obama seems to be clever and ambitious enough to change politics accordingly.

    I think D'Souza had this one idea that he and Obama were similar, and he wanted to pursue this great media idea to its culmination, even though Obama is not D'Souza.

  3. Yes, I believe the silent majority has became the minority. People don't care enough to read the facts. We will know in a few weeks. Does anyone not care that he thinks 'The View' is more important than talking face to face with world leaders. That says lots about the real man.

  4. Chimel, I am disappointed you didn't find anything in 2016 but reading you in the past I am not surprised.

    Answer my quote though, is that the majority feeling in Europe or is it not? Is it one man's opinion like yours?

    Seriously, I ask. We indeed will soon find out. I expect turmoil no matter who wins because the country is so divided and no one group supports one approach of solving the problems.

    It's a mess, no doubt.

    This is a difficult but important subject. It affects every one in the world one way or another.

    I will go back to soils where I know a little more.

    Thanks all,

    Ed

  5. Well I thought I already answered that. I didn't think much of the quote, insulting people never helped anybody or advanced the debate. Neither Obama nor 69 million voters are all fools. Certainly not Obama, since he managed to get the top job in the country.

    Most European people I know were proud and glad to see Obama elected, they thought it would be a welcome change. A few years later, many got disappointed because they were expecting more or faster changes, not realizing that Democrats and Republicans still share a lot of the same values and that changes can't happen quickly in such a big country.

    I have been to Prague too in my time, when it was still in Czechoslovakia and the dissident writer Václav Havel was its president, but the people who hosted me, I took hitch-hiking, I saved from a fall in the High Tatras mountains or otherwise met were not speaking of the United States politics then. I doubt they would be so insulting, it sounds more like something the far right would say. The same guys who deny the holocaust over there and in several European countries.
