The Morning Rant

"Why is American great? I'd say it's because America is the world's safety valve. So if your country's a sh*thole or turning into a sh*thole, you can always get on a boat and come here. That's the way it's been for over 150 years. If you're tired of living under stultified European monarchies, come to where kings and dukes get laughed at. Or if your country is ravaged by famine (Ireland), come to where there's plenty of food and freedom to grow it without the king's soldiers showing up to take most of it away. And these features of American are precious things that we need to hold onto, because there are many nowadays who would erase them, who would bring back the European models are ancestors came here to get away from, all the while piously proclaiming they're doing it in the name of 'fairness' and 'equality'. But if that's what they want, they need to go back to where it is, not f* it up here for everyone else. Because what mean by 'equality' want is 'equality of outcome'. Of course, you're never going to get that because the talents and abilities of individuals are not evenly distributed. And trying to force outcomes takes a lot of force and the outcomes will be meager. Look at Venezuela's descent into madness. That country is sitting on a metric f*ck-ton of oil, yet now her citizens are breaking into zoos to butcher the animals for food. It sounds like a chapter out of an Ayn Rand novel. That's the end result of 'fairness' and 'equality'. Everyone starving together."

Hey Kids! Don't Do This Really Awesome Thing That I Am About To Show You A Slo-Mo Video Of That Looks Really Cool:


By the way, Eric Garcetti is one of the brainiacs behind the botched OJ prosecution back in the 90s. Probably has nothing to do with this video, but I just enjoy pointing it out every time I see his name in the news. [Update]: Oops, wrong again. That was Gil Garcetti who was the bonehead. Eric is his feckless son. I regret the error.
