Where?

I know that most of us here remember the brave, and often tragic, stories of people fleeing the Iron Curtain, like the four East Germans below. Scenes like this reminded those of us who fought the Cold War  exactly why we were in uniform.

At the end the woman yells “We’ve done it.” At the end of the war we had all done it. We beat communism and socialism.

Now our very own citizens who have either forgotten the evil that was vanquished or never had to live with its shadow looming over them, are gladly racing right back to it.

Question is, where will our children be able to swim to?

That’s an amazing video Crunch. I saw Czechoslovakia in the fall of 1990, not long after they had opened the border. What the Soviet Union did to that country is unforgivable, mile after mile of dead forests caused by acid rain from their heavy industry, infrastructure in shambles, and people living in unspeakable poverty. That said, I saw signs that… Read more »

While I agree with you, Jaybear, what happens when the free stuff runs out? When the music stops?

THEN the feces hits the rotating blades. Then the Great Unwashed Masses rise up and… … … break everything because they’re too damn dumb to know any different.

I was in Germany in 1985 for Reforger and we got up to the East German border and we were in an observation tower overlooking the East Germans and my roommate just out of the blue said (and I will never forget it) “Wow, it’s like the F’ing Wizard of Oz. Over there it is black and white and over… Read more »

Personally, I’m looking forward to watching the citizens of the great urban areas getting exactly what they wanted. Starvation, freezing, disease, crime, and the law of the jungle. I wonder how many of the rich folk will be able to get out of their highly visible, target-rich homes when the gangs come knocking? No power, no water, no A/C, not… Read more »

Tuesday’s state dinner was the usual self-indulgent Washington lavishness oblivious to the unemployed, food-stamped lives of millions of back-country Americans. The 350 attendees playing dress-up were a combination of Obama cronies, B-level Hollywood types, media, campaign bundlers and assorted beltway politicos that can consider themselves D.C. royalty until Jan. 20, 2017. They were over-fed and entertained in what passes for… Read more »
