Well, my sojourn to Hangzhou, China is soon coming to a close. Tomorrow Chelsea and I board a train for Shanghai where we will spend the day. The day after that, she will go with me to the airport to see me off. I will head home alone with my purpose for this trip fulfilled: In order for her to obtain a fianceé visa, her and I have to have met face to face at least once.

I admit that I'm homesick for America. You know I've never been an internationalist, a jet-setter, or considered myself a "global citizen". I'm just some guy from Missouri who accidentally made a friend from China on the internet only to watch such a chance encounter become something more than a mere penpal relationship.

But I'm also going to miss Chelsea deeply until she can come to America and be with me. Part of me is dreading getting on that plane. As much as I want to get home, I hate the idea of being separated from her by a wide gulf of ocean and the paperwork of two monolithic nations.

Chelsea saw what I was writing just now and turned away so she wouldn't have to read any more. She feels the same as I do, you see. It has been written that "Parting is such sweet sorrow". But no, it's not. Parting is actually fucking painful.

I'll be home soon. I'll finish responding to your comments then. Take care of yourselves, my friends.

This is Leifeng Pagoda at West Lake:

It's on top of a mountain overlooking West Lake. It's the highest point in the city. If you ever visit Hangzhou, you must go there and snap some pictures:

Six From Leifeng PagodaCollapse )

I'm figuring out Chelsea's laptop a little more. There's a program on it allowing me to translate some of these Chinese clicks and whatnot instead of merely guessing what they mean from past experience. So, I'll probably put some more pictures up tomorrow. I won't have to wait until I return.

Be well, my friends.

Have you ever been to a "Chinese restaurant" in America? Odds are that you have at least once in your life. Some of you may actually think that the food you're getting there is "authentic", i.e. the real deal. That it's exactly what they eat back home without any adjustments or modifications to suit the Western palate.

Well, I'm here to tell you that you're dead wrong if you think that. What you're eating at a "Chinese" restaurant in America is something that has been heavily altered to suit your tastes so you can stomach it and still pretend to be all multi-culti and cosmopolitan just from eating something that has soy sauce and hot mustard on it. I've been here for roughly a week and a half and I have yet to see a single egg roll. Not once have I eaten crab rangoon. So far, the only dish I've eaten resembling what I'm accoustomed to was some kung pao chicken I had for lunch in Shanghai, some pork fried rice Chelsea likes to bring home, and some convenient noodles, aka ramen noodles I ate yesterday.

You want to know what real Chinese food from the mainland is like? First off, know that the Chinese will cook things no Westerner would ever cook, boil things no Westerner would ever boil, and fry things no Westerner would ever fry. And that little soy sauce thing? Soy sauce is nothing more than a less intense version of the way Chinese people like to load up much of their food with salt or other sodium-based additives.

Let me tell you of the worst meal I've ever had in my life. It was a couple of nights ago at a place with the deceptively Western-sounding name of Grandma's Kitchen. It's the favorite restaurant of the local Hangzhou residents. They absolutely love it. Chelsea thought I would enjoy it, as well. But honestly? It sucks.

First, I was served something called salt duck, aka sauced duck. What they do is take a duck and bake it in some sort of brine until it resembles a fossilized baby pterodactyl rather than a waterfowl. It was black in color, tough as shoe leather, and full of bones I had to keep spitting out. Ah, but this was only the beginning of the horrors. Next, I was served a fried dish consisting of green beans, hot peppers, bits of pork, and unidentified bits of something...burned. It smelled like burnt hair and tasted like how I imagine poo-poo would if you fried it in a wok at high temperatures. After that I was served spiced ham. It wasn't bad but after trying out the first two dishes, my appetite was shot all to merry fucking Hell.

Another chamber of culinary horrors is that edifice known as the Chinese supermarket. When I went there with Chelsea, I got to see the fish aisle. Dried fish aisle, to be exact. Yes, dried fish in neat little bins...just staring up at you. Yummy. And yesterday, I ate a smoked chicken we bought there. Oh, it looked like a normal appetising smoked chicken at first. But then, I delved deeper into it. Parts of it were...um...bloody. Yes, congealed blood. I also found that they didn't just provide drumsticks. No, they had to go and provide the fucking feet, as well. But the absolute worst part? They left the chicken's head. The fucking head, people! And the head had been split down the middle with a bonesaw. Can you guess why? Well, for easy access to those tasty smoked chicken brains, of course.

But there were some good meals. The pork fried rice in Hangzhou is excellent. The kung pao chicken in Shanghai was better than the stuff back home. The ramen noodles you get here aren't first class but they're better than what you can buy at Wally World. I also had a pork dish with green onions and peppers that was excellent. But you know what my favorite meal has been thus far? It was spiced potato and red pepper dish served with soft rice.

It was awesome...mainly because Chelsea made it for me. She's an excellent cook.

Anyway, that about covers it for this entry.

Until next time, my friends!

Muahahaha... ;-)

Chelsea took the following picture. She uses a Canon Powershot A610. She also sets her camera to take the largest pictures possible. So far, this is the only one she's resized for me to make it small enough that ImageShack would accept it. Gaze now upon the natural beauty of West Lake in Hangzhou at Dusk:

West Lake At DuskCollapse )

More pics when I return to America.

Anyway, Chelsea had to go back to work today. Hopefully, she'll be able to get home in time for us to eat dinner with a good friend of hers.

So, until next time, my friends!

Well, I've been in China for roughly 6 days. My God, this country is freaking crowded. And the streets of the residential areas are dirty. The places away from the main tourist areas, that is. The residential areas where I'm staying have a lower standard of living than an American ghetto. You hear that, all you people living in the trailer parks, the barrios, and the housing projects? You live better than most of the people in China. Even the ones in management positions. So, quit your bitching about your living conditions! It could be much worse! You could be living in Shanghai, for fuck's sake! Shanghai sucks, people! At least Hangzhou has West Lake and Linying Temple. But Shanghai? Shanghai is just another port city suffering from urban sprawl.

Hardly any of the intersections have traffic lights and everybody drives like maniacs. And it's noisy. People seem to stay up at all hours of the night. Prostitiution is fairly common here in the form of barber shops that are only barber shops on the outside. Beggars like to accost me. Unscrupulous types offer to be my "tour guide" even when Chelsea is on my arm. In short, this country is like one gigantic version of New York City. You can walk a thousand miles in any direction and it won't matter. You're still going to be in an asian version of New York City. mumbalo_jack would love it here.

And some of the most racist people on Earth are ethnic Chinese mainlanders. They see me walking with my fianceé and give us disapproving looks. You see, they don't approve of a white man being with a Chinese woman. I keep half expecting to see the ethnic asian version of the KKK outside Chelsea's apartment building with torches any night now.

Of course, not all Chinese people are like that. Hopefully, I'll be having dinner with some of Chelsea's friends tomorrow night. They're anxious to meet me.

Some of Hangzhou's plusses? West Lake is beautiful. Especially at sunset. It's a popular tourist spot. I saw several other westerners there. If you ever go there, be sure to wait until early evening to visit it.

Linyin Temple was quite an experience. I'm not sure if it's primarily a tourist spot or an actual place of worship because it has elements of both. Picture an ancient Buddhist temple complex in the mountains of Eastern China then add in booths with vendors selling food and souvenirs, tour guides, and people snapping pictures outside of the main temple complex. But it's also beautiful. Many statues, intricate bas reliefs, and ancient architecture set against the backdrop of moutain forest greenery.

And as for the main reason I journeyed to the other side of the planet? Well, lemme tell ya' that I love Chelsea even more in person than over a webcam. She's hilarious! Her sense of humor reminds me of Lucille Ball updated for the modern era. She's such a beautiful woman with a generous heart. We get along excellently. She keeps trying to convince me to stay in China for good, though. Yes, she'd rather not come to live in America. She's as big a nationalist for her country as I am for mine. But it will take a lot for me to become a permanent resident of China, my friends. Basically, America would have to become like another version of Mexico...which it might, given enough time and stupidity on the part of our leaders in both major parties.

I know I promised pictures. You'll get them after I return home. I'm just too busy to post them right now.

Anyway, enough about me. Ni hao...er, um...how are all of you?

Sorry for not updating last weekend. It was Easter, you know.

Anyway, as I've been telling you for some time, I've have plans to go to China and visit my lovely Chelsea(not her American name). Well, it's finally a reality. The countdown has begun. I start my trip this April 29. I've got a long journey ahead of me. First, I have to drive my ass from Central Missouri to Kansas City. From Kansas City, I board a plane for Chicago. From Chicago, I head to Tokyo. And from Tokyo, I fly to Shanghai. I'll spend the night at a hotel that Chelsea has booked for us there. The next morning, her and I will take a bus to Hangzhou where she lives. And on May 14, I'll head back to the States by the exact same route. During that time, I'm going to try and get her fianceé visa started.

I may be kind of busy while I'm there, so this might be my final journal entry until I return.

But if I can, I'll try to send you pictures everyday. If I can't, I'll share them with you when I return. I dunno. We'll see. But I'm definitely going to try and get a picture of myself posing with a couple of Chinese soldiers. That'll be a hoot. Little did they realize that they were posing with an outspoken critic of everything they stand for...

Anyway, may all my friends have a good weekend. And to all my enemies, online and in the real world? Here is a vial of bird flu for you people:

Apparently the United States is considering the use of nuclear weapons against Iran†:

The administration of President George W. Bush is planning a massive bombing campaign against Iran, including use of bunker-buster nuclear bombs to destroy a key Iranian suspected nuclear weapons facility, The New Yorker magazine has reported in its April 17 issue.

The article by investigative journalist Seymour Hersh said that Bush and others in the White House have come to view Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as a potential Adolf Hitler.

"That's the name they're using," the report quoted a former senior intelligence official as saying.

A senior unnamed Pentagon adviser is quoted in the article as saying that "this White House believes that the only way to solve the problem is to change the power structure in Iran, and that means war."

The former intelligence officials depicts planning as "enormous," "hectic" and "operational," Hersh writes.

One former defense official said the military planning was premised on a belief that "a sustained bombing campaign in Iran will humiliate the religious leadership and lead the public to rise up and overthrow the government," The New Yorker pointed out.

In recent weeks, the president has quietly initiated a series of talks on plans for Iran with a few key senators and members of the House of Representatives, including at least one Democrat, the report said.

One of the options under consideration involves the possible use of a bunker-buster tactical nuclear weapon, such as the B61-11, to insure the destruction of Iran's main centrifuge plant at Natanz, Hersh writes.

But the former senior intelligence official said the attention given to the nuclear option has created serious misgivings inside the military, and some officers have talked about resigning after an attempt to remove the nuclear option from the evolving war plans in Iran failed, according to the report.

"There are very strong sentiments within the military against brandishing nuclear weapons against other countries," the magazine quotes the Pentagon adviser as saying.

The adviser warned that bombing Iran could provoke "a chain reaction" of attacks on American facilities and citizens throughout the world and might also reignite Hezbollah.

"If we go, the southern half of Iraq will light up like a candle," the adviser is quoted as telling The New Yorker.

I'm not surprised to hear this. Did you know that we had nuclear-tipped Tomahawk missiles we were going to use on Iraq if Hussein used chemical weapons on our troops?

I can't blame the Pentagon for any hesitancy they may have in using nukes. Yeah, I said that. Me. Mr. Warmonger, as some of my opponents like to think of me. Nuclear weapons are (unlike the internet) serious business. Hell, there was a huge debate whether or not to use them on Japan. Did you know that? Now, I'm not saying they should rule out nukes for use against Iran. I'm just saying they need to think this through very carefully.

First, they need to get ready for all the protesters and conspiracy theorists that will flood in. And you know they will. Cindy Sheehan will get to extend her fame for another 15 minutes. Michael Moore will make a new movie. And every last lib-bot in Hollywood will be out there using the publicity to draw attention to their failing careers.

Second, they need to consider the international response. Every nation on Earth that doesn't like us will condemn the act. The worst case scenario is that some of them might use a nuclear barrage against Iraq as an excuse to launch one of their own.

Then there's the Islamic response. Every radical turban-wearing whack job in the world will scream like Howard Dean at a DNC fundraiser. But they're doing that anyway. It doesn't take much to set them off. Just ask Danish cartoonists and the French. Radical Islam, you're dismissed as far as I'm concerned. You're the biggest piece of what's wrong with the world these days. Kiss the snotty end of my fuckstick, bitches.

And there's probably other things to take into consideration but I don't have time to analyze that. But it's a pretty safe bet that Iran is throwing the entire world betwixt a rock and a hard place.

And just what's going on with Iran's President, anyway? Why is he staring at his hands like that? Observe:

"We don't have toilet paper in my country. My hands smell like ass!"

What a fuckaballoo. The battle lines are being drawn. With insane idiots who who believe their god mandates a rise to global supremacy and don't know how to wipe their butts like civilized people.

So, until next time, my friends!

Bleh. What a month this past March was. There was a lot going on. I'm not sure what to even talk about this week.

So I'm going to try something a little different.

Instead of me picking a topic and giving my opinion about it, I'm going to turn this entry over to you the reader. You're going to tell me what's on your mind for a change and what you think.

What social, political, or cultural issue most grabbed your attention lately? What was most striking to you? In short, what's the pebble in your shoe and what form does it take?

And feel free to look at and respond to any comments made by others here. Go ahead and mingle to your heart's content.

You know what life is like in the West because most of you reading this live here. We have the best of eveything. An increasingly longer life expectancy. Freedom to practice a religion or not. Freedom to elect our increasingly incompetent leaders from increasingly incompetent political parties. Freedom to watch 756 channels of shit on satellite television. Freedom to go on the internet and post thoughts in the digital arena. Freedom to tell another person what an emaciated whiny lemon-scented metrosexual buttercup you think they are.

We Americans have this idea that freedom of thought and expression of that thought are held sacrosanct. That's what makes our country such a great place that people from other coutries are trying to get into. But where does that freedom philosophically spring from? Are our rights granted solely by the grace of other human beings meaning that such rights are self-evidently subjective and relative and ultimately intangible? Or do our rights spring from an objective force or condition that is constant, regardless of the pronouncements of and actions of tyrants and dictators?

Our founding fathers were deists who believed that certain rights were granted by a higher scource, therefore making those rights objectively true. They weren't subscribers to any organized religion but neither were they atheists or agnostics. They believed that there was a deity but they also believed that deity granted the inalienable right not to believe in him/her/it/them.

If you hold the atheistic cosmological model to be the absolute truth, then you effectively rule out objective and philosophically binding moral and ethical truth...especially the philosophy of humanism, as well. Humanism is inconsistent all by itself. To put it simply, if you believe that the moral and ethical pronouncements of a religion are artificial and subjective, then why should you not also believe that the self-admittedly humanistic moral and ethical pronouncements of other mortals are any less subjective? If you refuse to enshrine a deity above yourself as a moral authority then why should you also enshrine other human beings above yourself in a similar manner? What's so special about them if all they are is another bunch of talking monkeys with opposable thumbs, skilled in long division and the ability to write crappy poetry? What makes them somehow better than you? Why should you subordinate your desires to their strictures when the oopourtunity to flout said strictures arises, particularly when flouting them can gain you some form of gratification? It's easy to say that you don't believe in the divine connection of Christ, Buddha, Mohammed, Moses, or the Flying Spaghetti Monster. It's much harder to hold another self-admitted talking monkey over yourself as some kind of atheistic substitute for a Christ-figure.

Need an example? Say I'm an atheist and I decide to break into another atheist's car and steal everything of value while emptying the contents of a bag of dog shit onto his dashboard and windshield. I complete my task and don't get caught. The fellow atheist I victimized strongly suspects me but I did my crime so well that he can't prove anything in court. Now I ask you, what can he say to convince me that I'm morally wrong and make restitution, hmm? Telling me that "Jesus thinks it's wrong!" won't work because as an atheist, I don't believe it. Hell, deep down, neither would my fellow atheist victim. If hes says, "But you broke the law!" I can reply by saying, "So what if I did? Laws get broken all the time." What if he goes all hippy-dippy on me and says, "But we need to be good to our fellow human beings because all we've got is each other!"? I can just as easily argue that it's every man for himslef and Devil take the hindmost. Law of the Jungle, baby. Laws aren't inherently and objectively true. Laws are dictated by whichever group is carrying the biggest sticks. Same thing with such artificial concepts as "human rights", "morals", "ethics", "real and intellectual property rights", and "equal protection under the law". An action is neither right or wrong in an atheistic cosmology. It simply happens for whatever reason.

Let me keep my atheist hat on for a little longer. Say we're in an alley in a bad neighborhood and I decide to shoot you in the vitals multiple times and take your jewelry, your money, and your credit cards. You're bleeding to death while I rob you. And I won't get caught because people in bad neighborhoods often don't like to get involved. They're afraid I might commit grievous bodily harm on them for doing so. Now, you the victim and I the perpetrator are both atheists. What are you going to say to me to convince me that my actions are wrong? You can say that I'm insane, for starters. And I could say that I'm not. The law certainly wouldn't think I'm insane if they could catch me killing and robbing you. They wouldn't send me to a mental health facility. No, they'd send to prison and possibly death row in some jurisdictions. You see, in order to be insane, you have to have the inability know and understand the concept of right and wrong. Almost all violent criminals know and undertand the concept. They just don't believe it because they understand that such concepts are subjective and relative in their atheistic cosmology. Having the ability to comprehend something doesn't entail belief, especially in matters of right and wrong.

You could say that I maybe sane while killing and robbing you but that I'm an anarchist who's actions are against society. And you know what I could legitimately say? I could give you a resounding "YES!!!" that I am in fact an anarchist and that my actions are against society. If I live in an atheistic cosmology, why should I not be an anarchist if I want to? In a society, you give up a lot of freedom in exchange for protection. An anarchist doesn't want said governmental protection and would rather have that untrammeled freedom back. Why should I need a nation state? Nation states eventually collapse at some point or another so why should I waste my existence supporting an institution that will eventually erode a thousand years from now or possibly even a week from today's date? Nation states and civilizations are also fairly recent concepts in the history of humanity and they might not last. We've spent far more time as as a hunter-gatherer species than we have as anything else. Some would argue that the hunter-gatherer lifestyle is humanity's natural state. The archeological evidence certainly supports it.

In an amoral cosmos, what reason do I have not to be a self-centered misanthropic nihilst thug who lives only for himself? Why should I support the ethics and strictures of the human species when we will eventually fall to the next big extinction-level event or even the continued existence of humanity itself? We're dinosaurs in the making in a sociopathic universe where the heavens contain nothing but blind uncaring stars and planet-devouring black holes. Nothing more. Eat, drink, and be merry for tomorrow we die while the cockroaches scurry out from their boltholes in humanity's collective skeleton for a Doomsday Eve party they don't even know they're attending. Queen Entropy reigns supreme and all attempts to stop her are ultimately futile...a self-prolonged agony.

That my friends, is what it means to be a pure atheist. If you're going to do it, why do a half-assed version? I see no reason for an atheist to use Ayn Rand-ish thinking to justify their viewpoints. But strangely, many of them do. This despite the fact that most of the atheists I know who make moral and ethical pronouncements also profess to hate Ayn Rand. The mind boggles at this! Either you are an objectivist and a moral absolutist or you are a subjectivist and moral relativist. You simply cannot be be in the middle on this philosophical issue.

Now look, I've argued with a lot of preachy atheists about this. They think I'm stupid because I believe in a deity who refuses to be poked and prodded in a laboratory setting. They also think I'm stupid for thinking that my religious beliefs are better than those of say Scientology or Islam. Hey, maybe they're right and when I die, that'll be the end of my existence. Not that it matters, though. If I get to Heaven, my pain is at an end. If I die and my consciousness simply winks out, I'll still have an end to the pains of life. How can I lose?

But you know what's so hilariously stupid about these preachy atheists? I also believe that said deity has decreed an objective right for them not to believe in him. They think I'm stupid for believing in God and that his moral strictures are real. Well, if that's true, then I must be equally stupid for believing that these preachy atheists have any form of objective rights whatsoever. In other words, I'm stupid for holding them up as somehow more important than a bacterium or a virus. If they hate me, then they must hate themselves more by logical extension. Ain't that just a kick in the head, friends and neighbors? Hahahaha!

Look, I don't hate atheists. Hell, just as I have friends who believe in different religions, I also have friends who are atheists themselves. And I'm not writing this to offend any atheist reading it...well...maybe the preachy ones who like to get all self-righteous like a wannabe substitute Jesus-bot 5000 whenever I mention God in a positive light. You know. The hate-filled bigots. The morons who hypocritically whine about religious fanaticism while simultaneously trumpeting their own brand of secular fanaticism as somehow more enlightened. But that doesn't mean I don't mind giving my atheist friends something to think about. They've certainly given me plenty to mull over. And I don't mind that either. Posing tough questions questions of each other isn't a bad thing at all.

Here's why I'm not an atheist: Atheism has nothing to offer me because atheism in it's purest form believes in nothing. Not good. Not evil. Not right. Not wrong. Nothing but empirical data.

So that concludes it for this week.

And until next time, my friends!

Muahahaha... ;-)

Milosevic Dead

What a strange week it's been. Slobadan Milosevic died without ever having completed his trial. That just highlights how "effiecient" the U.N. is, right? Hahahaha!

South Park vs Scientology

The popular show South Park has been in the news lately. They're going into a confrontation with my Scientologist "friends".

At Issue:

South Park is the less than respectful television animation series that has sustained its popularity for a decade because of its fearless satirising of anyone and everyone. It drew headlines early last week, however, when musician Isaac Hayes, who since 1997 has been the voice of Chef, suddenly upped and left in a huff.

Hayes declared that South Park, which follows the hell-raising of the four kids, had gone too far in its lampooning of religion. Specifically, he was cross about its recent mocking of the Church of Scientology. Hayes is a Scientologist. So is Cruise.

The departure of Hayes created some publicity for the show and its creators, Trey Parker and Matt Stone. But now things are even more interesting. Comedy Central, the channel that broadcasts it in the US, was scheduled to air a repeat of the episode that had so upset Hayes on Wednesday night. But then, suddenly, it didn't.

South Park fans cried censorship. Why had Comedy Central yanked the episode? They now think they have the answer: Tom Cruise is the culprit. According to several Hollywood websites, he used his considerable Tinseltown influence to muzzle the show.

Parker and Stone are not taking this lying down. "So, Scientology, you may have won THIS battle, but the million-year war for earth has just begun!" the two said in a statement that seemed to parody Scientology as science fiction. "Temporarily anozinizing our episode will NOT stop us from keeping Thetans forever trapped in your pitiful man-bodies. Curses and drat! You have obstructed us for now, but your feeble bid to save humanity will fail! Hail Xenu!!!"

But for the epic battle, Cruise has a secret weapon. It is alleged that he threatened to withdraw from any promotional activity for his next film, Mission: Impossible III, out on 5 May. The movie has been made by Paramount, which is owned by Viacom. And Viacom owns Comedy Central.

In the controversial episode, one of the characters, Stan, takes a Scientology test and scored so highly that disciples of the religion are crowding his home declaring him their new leader. And, wouldn't you know it, Cruise is there too, waiting in Stan's bedroom. He asks Stan what he thinks of his acting. Stan is not kind, and a deeply offended Cruise hides in the bedroom closet. Then the episode veers into the territory of Cruise's sexuality. Stan begs him to come out of the closet. About 40 times.

Everyone involved is denying everything, of course. Comedy Central says it pulled the episode so it could run two episodes featuring Chef as a tribute to Hayes. Paramount says Cruise never made threats. And Cruise, through a spokesman, said the same.

And no one believes a word of it. The Los Angeles Times dubbed the flap Closetgate. "For Stone and Parker, Closetgate will be the gift that keeps on giving," it said.

It's worth noting that Hayes never balked at the show making fun of other religions but got all poopy when his own religions was made a target. Of course, he says that's not the reason he left. I call "Bullshit!" on this statement.

Scientology has a lot of pull in Hollywood. Their pull rivals that of the radical gay movement. Just as many Hollywood bigshots are also raging gays, many Hollywood bigshots are also Scientologists. And I'm sure there's a ton of overlap. So, what we're looking at is a bunch of radical gay Scientologists conspiring to have the episode buried.

But do you honestly think I'm going to let them keep you from seeing the controvercial episode, my friends? Click here to see it in it's entirety. No need to thank me. I'm happy to do it beacuse that's what Brian Boitano would do.

Hey, do you think the Scientologists will sue me over this? Hahahaha! Bring it on you, bitches!

And does anybody know if there's a Scientology community on LiveJournal? I'm getting an urge to troll them mercilessly right about now.

Muahahahaha... ;-)

The Continuing Anemic Birth Rate of the Secular "Progressives"

Remember how I've stated that American conservatives are outbreeding lib-bots in America and that Europeans have a sluggish plodding birthrate? Well, the mainstream media has picked it up...finally. Once again, who's way ahead of the curve? According to the MSM, religious conservatives are expanding while secular progressives are failing to breed. Furthermore, the MSM has also been noticing that the secular "progressives" of Europe are committing demographic suicide.

The lib-bots are too selfish and lazy to have kids of their own but oh, how the love to brainwash yours, don't they? Ward Churchill also comes to mind, among others.

What a week, what a week. I've had a lot to say in this installment. But I'm done now and I feel like watching a movie or playing a videogame.

So, until next time, my friends!

Muahahaha... ;-)
