I just got back from a “seminar” in Las Vegas. (That is my story and I am sticking with it.) One thing that struck me was that a majority of the floor employees in the casinos were immigrants from many, many different countries.
I spoke with a few of them and they all said that they were here for pretty much the same reason.
1. Their country was politically oppressive.
2. The freedom here was not seen any where else in the world.
3. The opportunity here was not seen any where else in the world
And one more thing that all of them said was that we were fools for letting our government erode our freedoms the way we do. Everyone suggested that to prevent that, one year living abroad for every 19 year old should be mandatory.
I also found this coupon in the hotel magazine. (Bottom right) I wish I had the opportunity to avail myself of the opportunity but I didn’t have time.
Preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse or Rapture....whichever comes first.
It is sad that people from other countries appreciate or freedoms more than the sheep that were born and raised here. Maybe we could start large scale sheep deportation. The government could give them one way tickets for the destination of their choice. That would be a much better use of my tax dollars than bailing out banks and auto companies.
