Do you hate yourself?

I have always been wondering why people with names like Woshinski and Bauer don't want foreign people to come and live in the United States of America. Do they really hate their great grandparents that much? And if they are serious about closing the borders for 'those bloody foreigners', why do they keep telling them America is the greatest country in the world? And why is their building constructor a Polish guy, their gardener a Mexican and their housekeeper from the Philippines?

Often you hear stupid people say: 'It's all the foreigners fault because they are too lazy to work and they steal our jobs!' Wait a minute! So those people you say you hate are all unemployed and live of 'our' welfare AND we are unemployed because they steal our jobs? Have you ever listened to yourself?

There is one simple rule that applies to every single nation on the planet: non-domestic people are always willing to work hard for little pay. Are you?

And next time when you shout out: 'I hate foreigners!', realise that for the greater part of the world population you yourself are a foreigner so basically you state that you hate yourself.

Face it: not everyone loves America. And for some darn good reasons:

Oh, and just as a favour (yes, that's with a 'u', look it up) to us, foreigners: try to say what you mean and mean what you say. Please.

On credit cards and a coffee cup salute

I don't have a credit card but believe in not buying anything when I can't afford it. And the rates are way to high on credit cards! So I have a debet card only and an 'old' (18 months old) phone. But no debts. While most people don't seem to care about the future and even governments spent more than they make I live a debtless life. The thing is: a lot of people don't seem to think anymore. Fox News tells them: 'George Bush would never disrespect soldiers by saluting them with something in his hands, like Obama did when he saluted soldiers while holding a coffeecup.' And people believe it!
Are people really that stupid that they blindly believe anything someone at Fox News tells them?
Too bad that people have become too lazy to look things up and to think for themselves because here is the simple truth that Fox News is lying. Again.

A War on Love?

When I saw this sign, my reaction was: 'Yeah, let's have a war on sex!'


Obviously the current methods to stop drugs and terrorism are not working, yet governments keep on trying. Wouldn't it be great if they stopped to think?

"I can live with doubt and uncertainty and not knowing. I think it’s much more interesting to live not knowing than to have answers which might be wrong." Richard Feynman

Fact is we don't know everything, even though some pretend they do. But we can strive for knowledge in stead of get ourselves stuck at the level of knowledge we had a thousand years ago. And yes, it's okay to believe in God and science simultanously.

And here's piece of music from my early childhood:
