Commenter Lichthof sounds off on the America he admires coming back to life.
I’m buzzing today. Imigrating here from Western Europe…this is what I expected the US to be….Dow soaring…the country with a swagger, a confidence…the ‘America – Fuck Yeah’ feel. The brash.
Winning WW2, Clint Eastwood, John Wayne… Hanniball smoking a cigar in the A Team when a plan comes together…that’s the US I grew up with living in Western Europe which people admired/envied and wished they lived there.
I think that swagger was lost on 911…seems to be returning back. And those leaving this country ..Western Europe is old, moaney, with leaders who are weak and totally indecisive and uninspiring. With a John Kerry monotone voice.
So enjoy the ride..it may come crashing down..but as Il Duce once said “better to live one day as a lion…”
Of course it’s all orgasmic…that’s Trumps ‘winning…again again…tired of winning’
He’s a legend, a rogue but a giant. For me only this country could produce a Donald Trump.
Gordon Gekko…Jack Donaghy…The Godfather all rolled into one.
By the way, Lichthof is exactly the sort of immigrant America wants — of West European heritage. I’m an advocate of a 60-year immigration moratorium to give the US some breathing room, but when the gates are reopened the welcome mat should be largely restricted to AngloGermanics, with token set asides for immigrants from outside that gene-culture zone.
