    Lightbulb A Change of Heart!

    I have been a supporter for a long time. But I believe that it is time to re-evaluate U.S. involvement. I'm sorry that a lot of my friends are going to disagree with me, but this is the way I see it now.

    Every day there are news reports of more deaths.
    Why are we still there?

    We see images of death and destruction on TV every night.
    Why are we still there?

    We took this land by force. We occupied it. It causes us nothing but trouble.
    Why are we still there?

    Many of our children go there but never come back.
    Why are we still there?

    Murderers, Rapists, Pedophiles and Thugs enjoy celebrity status.
    Why are we still there?

    Their government is unstable.
    Why are we still there?

    Many of their people are uncivilized.
    Why are we still there?

    Their land is subject to natural disasters and we are obliged to come to their aid.
    Why are we still there?

    They have more than 1000 religious sects, which we do not understand.
    Why are we still there?

    Their cultures, foods and diverse ways of life are unfathomable to most ordinary Americans.
    Why are we still there?

    They cannot secure their borders.
    Why are we still there?

    They are billions of dollars in debt and it will cost billions more to rebuild.
    Why are we still there?

    It is now quite clear!

    I'd add to that list Illinois as well.

    But I would have to completely agree about Kalifornia.

    "He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."

    I would rather sell California back to Mexico for oil, as long as they keep the movie stars.

    My wife and I escaped in 2006 but gotta say thanks for that fantastic housing market that allowed me own my home today. Other than that... I'm so glad we made it out without too many liberal scars.

    All right, you had me worrying there for a minute! But you know, it does have some merit....
