You really should come visit the USA. We need the tourism. It is no more humid here than Central Europe has been. And we have air conditioning every where. Come see Crystal Bridges. See how our billionaires spend their money in the middle of nowhere. They are really rich and just pour money into holes in the ground to benefit the community. I think you will be impressed.
There is little or no racism hereabouts and Arkansas is ground zero for historical racism. We are done with that.
They are just pushing your buttons. All the noise you hear is hype. All the Republicans and Democrats are fund raising over these issues and trying to gin their supporters up. All this racism talk, inequality talk, and socialism talk is fundraising talk. It does work to generate consternation, so just focus on sports like I do.
Forget the Civil War and get off Twitter. Both are silly ideas. There are many more guns than people in the US. Most of the gun ownership is in the Red States. Everybody has at least one gun it seems. Anybody in Arkansas can carry with no permit. Pass the background check here and put it in your pocket. That makes Red America a bad place to launch a Civil War if you look at what the facts are.
Most of the working immigrants are working here in old economy jobs. The wealthy still have money around here. We need each other in our meat packing plants and in our landscaping jobs.
The US economy is roaring. It is hard to keep an employee, particularly in a low skill job.
I do not worry about income inequality in the US. The pie is getting bigger and everybody is better off. Everybody, rich or poor, illegal or legal, educated or not, is better off. If my billionaire boss doubles his net worth, my net worth will go up by a multiple of that. His yard man will get a new house. Who is hurt?
That is why everybody is coming to the US. And placing themselves at risk in wading the Rio Grande or elsewhere to do it.
Whatever happens, we will be fine over here. This is Capitalism. Come see us.
I would love to see the US do a zero tariff trade deal with the whole British Commonwealth. Open borders as you have with EU. Why not? Might be some politics in the way, but why not? With some effort among the wealthy like us, we could get it done.
Who’s with me?
