Everything Wrong With America In One Picture

When historians ponder the fall of the Roman Empire, they point to the multicultural Germanicization of the legions and the outsourcing of military affairs to barbarian mercenaries. When they reflect on the causes of Mayan collapse, deforestation is fingered as the culprit. When future revolutionary historians on the fringes of polite society offer reasons for the implosion of the American Empire (coming *very* soon to a booming multiplex theater near you), they will hold up this photo. And heads will nod in unison. Mutterings will be heard: “We saw it coming.”

What’s wrong with this picture? Let us count the ways. I’m going to go out on a limb here and assume the hairdresser is swisherrific. I mean, just look at that belt buckle. Would we be able to win WWII if we had to fight it over again with the current crop of American men? Or would we chastise the fearful warmongering Americans for antagonizing the millions of moderate Nazis? Phony umbrage and secular piousness are the cheap and easy virtues of a soulsucked people. So easy, you can do it too! I’ll get you started. “Xenophobe!” Congrats, you’re now better than Jesus.

The assistant has a foreign name. East European. She has that cute, scrunchy apple face so sexually arousing in the Slavic women, but unfortunately her Old World charms will be lost in a matter of weeks, due to exposure to the froo-frooiest of American culture from working in a hair salon that caters to a dying breed. (And I’m not referring to the dog.) I do not envy her boyfriend who will wake up one morning to the realization that his beloved has become fully Americanized. Home cooked dinners and surprise blowjobs will be nothing but a sweet memory.

When a free nation is invaded by a foreign force wthout lifting a single weapon to defend itself, when it puts itself in hock to a Communist overlord, when it has 152 varieties of color protecting conditioner on its store shelves, the doomsday clock has moved a minute closer to the midnight hour.

Then there’s the woman getting the queen bee treatment. Yenta! It’s not just an electric car. Her smile may be a mile wide, but her eyes betray infinite sadness. By the way she is smothering her dog with affection I safely assume she is childless.

And of course, the dog, a term I use loosely to describe the shitting Roomba sitting on her lap. Is that a flower tucked in its head fur? No wonder the dog’s face says “Shoot me please.” Normal dogs are not coddled and pampered like substitute children. A normal dog’s face says “Bacon? Bacooooon!!”

Examine this picture. You should feel a foreboding deep in your gut. You won’t know why exactly, but it’s there. Best not think too long about it, there’s another mp3 to download.

    i don’t know about this one. it’s interesting that you’re using the exact same argument as the leftist, anti-market crowd: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Paradox_of_Choice

    having a multitude of consumer choices isn’t necessarily a bad thing, so long as we sustain the productive capacity that makes it all possible. as far as i am concerned. if she, or whatever man she can sucker, can pay for it, she can primp and pamper herself into pink, puffy oblivion.

    the problem comes when all the things that ought to be the responsibility of individuals, families and communities start to come under the control of a giant, grasping redistributive welfare state; then you begin to see the proliferation of all sorts of people with no marketable skills and very little productive capacity.

We’re are at a time of cultural change for sure, but the geo-political factors which make the US the sole superpower on earth remain the same. US economic and military dominance allows it to pull the strings of the international economic system, influencing the behavior of other nations. This circumstance wont change anytime soon. The existence of a gay hairdresser and a spinster with a poodle doesnt threaten this fact.

    The US empire can afford the luxury of a standing professional army – the best the world has ever seen. With a country bordered by oceans on both sides and a Navy bigger and more powerful than the rest of the world’s Navies combined, the US is invulnerable to invasion as long as these realities endure.

    While this sinking tide lowers all boats, there are still vestiges of traditional manhood in play. Particularly here in flyover country, there are plenty of rugged blue-collar types, military men, and bible-bangers who are clinging to traditional values and family roles against the erosion that seeps in from the coasts.

    Unfortunately, society is shaped by these foppish betas in our major cities. They may be inept, feminised by a faggy culture, plastics, and female hormones in the water, but they’re the ones doing the legwork in our corporations and government. They have a disproportionate effect on social mores in the rest of the nation.

    Couple this with the sexual dystopia that feminist lies have created, the generations of bitter, sold-out women who thought that being a large-clitted career grrrl was the key to happiness…it’s a disaster. Large portions of the female population are put on behavior and hormone-altering birth control as soon as puberty sets in…we have a recipe for disaster.

    i can’t speak to that comparison. my speculation would be that the elite american units could fight with anyone, but the average unit filled with draftees might have been sub par.

    the real american advantage lay in two areas. first, our productive ability. second, the fact that american units could successfully operate in decentralized operations. our NCOs and junior officers had, and still have, the freedom and ability that was lacking in the german army. when you have a rigid hierarchical structure, people can be too afraid of cathcing flack from above so they refuse to take any chances. they obey the last order that was given even though the situation may have changed.

The most basic needs that a nation needs to survive are gone or quickly on there way out. I really for the life of me cant think of anything that’s produced here in this country that doesn’t involve cars planes, or trains. I mean when you look at it that’s what we do, we build transportation. Sure there’s intellectual property and the ilk. But when your outsourcing anything that can be done on a computer you have to wonder what’s the point of hiring workers here. The huge difference between the armies of WWII and Korea, and today are that there were changing forces in society that encouraged massive growth both industrially and socially. Soldiers went to war came back home and used new social program to help them return to school to to earn a degree that allowed them to get into the job market, that in turned helped put money in their pockets which helped them to purchase homes and blah blah blah. Hell look at the teenage boys of yesteryear, They would destroy grown men today physically. believe me you wouldn’t see them wearing faggy team Jacob or team Edward Tshirts.

    Now that everybody wants to make the next killer Iphone app or get famous for doing essentially nothing, What has American society become. A nation of overweight electronics junkies who have traded their own ideals for nothing. One thing I like about the Chinese goverment, where we think in decades they think in Centuries.

    I think the grounding of all above mentioned negative attributes is overconsumption (and all of its expected corollaries — hyper-indulgence breeds selfishness, vanity, narcissicism, obesity and general lack of virtue).

    I also mentioned briefly on my blog, that aliteracy is a problem in the developed world, and not in less-developed countries, because the latter are still dealing with basic literacy skills. The richer the society, the more problems we tend to notice because we raise our expectations to somewhat of an unreachable ideal everytime we (d?)evolve as a society.

    Some would argue dominant culture is borne out of capitalism, and that the economic growth rate of 3% every year necessarily creates a decadent culture because of the constant creation of new desires. I’m not a socialist by any means, but I think the problem you are pointing out IS a political one, and we either need to devise a way to keep culture separate from the means of production, or find an alternative to capitalism that isn’t socialist.

    Then again, as I just mentioned, we could just be seeking new problems in correspondence with our elevated ideals.

    By and large this is correct. The highest marriage and lowest divorce rate are for the demographic where both are highly educated and high(ish) earning. Betsey Stevenson calls this the “consumption marriage”, based as it is on the raw dual consumptive power as the practical glue that keeps the thing together. In the rest of the demographic, though, it’s a social disaster — and that is where the damage is really being done.

    I can imagine a future for the US at least of slouching towards a kind of Brazil situation: a wealthy and very functional but small educated overclass with stable marriages and families, with a large, underproductive, relationally unstable underclass. Marriage and relationship practice is now a major *class* issue and something that perhaps more than anything else is leading to wildly divergent lifestyles and experiences based on social class.

    I’m not a socialist by any means, but I think the problem you are pointing out IS a political one, and we either need to devise a way to keep culture separate from the means of production, or find an alternative to capitalism that isn’t socialist.

    you may not be a socialist, but you’re working with a very leftist conception of capitalism. and that makes sense, since the term ‘capatalism’ was originally a perjorative made popular by communists. capitalism was the system wherein capital was owned by private individuals, ie capitalists. marx and engels had a problem with this. they claimed it was because a system dominated by capitalists and the bourgeois was fundamentally exploitive of the working class. of course, in reality communists have no real affinity for the working class, much as today’s liberal elites have no real affinity for those in flyover country. the marxists did, however, realize that people who own their own capital tend to be notoriously independent, while those who make their living solely from their labor are much easier to organize and corral into a movement. workers are much easier to control and exploit than are the bourgeois.

    capitalism is simply a free market where the basic rules (property rights, contracts, etc. ) are enforced by a minimal and consentual government. individuals are free to go about their business however they choose ,and the market, through the mechanism of price, rewards and punishes efforts in accordance with how productive they are.

    decadence happens when what we consume becomes de-linked from what we produce. you begin to have a larger and larger share of people who posess neither or productive skills necessary to survive nor the moral character necessary maintain a cohesive society, but whose existence is subsidized by everyone else. in a true free market, the decadence you speak of is not possible.

    the problem is that you have an increasingly powerful group of politicians, bureaucrats and intellectuals who are continually advocating for the expansion of the welfare state. they claim to be interested in helping the working and under classes, and i’m sure many of them believe that. in reality, however their actions only serve to empower the bureaucracy they create. the way to reverse these trends is to begin rolling back that bureaucracy. what we need is to return to a state where people are primarily responsible for themselves and their families and not part of some central planners grand scheme. what we need is, in fact, more capitalism and not less.

    J R,

    decadence happens when what we consume becomes de-linked from what we produce. you begin to have a larger and larger share of people who posess neither or productive skills necessary to survive nor the moral character necessary maintain a cohesive society, but whose existence is subsidized by everyone else. in a true free market, the decadence you speak of is not possible.

    This is interesting. I was thinking of Weber’s Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism, which essentially posits that the hard-working, religious character of puritans laid the foundations for individualistic enterprise to exist. Hard work was virtue, and money was just a consequence, so I was wondering how that factored into my suggestion.

    I don’t know exactly what the consequences of what you’re suggesting may be, but wouldn’t the political retrograde you paint lead us right back to where we are now?

  60. The US is surely headed for a Collapse and/or a disintegration into Civil War. The American people are way, way too selfish and mean-spirited to continue carrying the torch for Western Civilization. Political Correctness has run amok and has weakened the people and corroded the halls of justice.

    A nation that spends more on its military than the rest of the world combined is absolutely grotesque. Typically, many Americans think this is a good thing having this massive arsenal and standing army when in reality it destroys the fabric of society and almost always leads to tyranny and eventual implosion of the nation.

    it’s definitely related. as someone who i assume has a grounding in contintental philosophy this should all be very obvious. what i’m saying is straight out of The Genealogy of Morals. for instance, in most situations hard work tends to be more productive than idleness, so we call industriousness a virtue and sloth a vice. decadence happens when the script flips and you have people flaunting their idleness as if it were virtue. and that can only happen when we have a society that rewards idleness at the expense of hard work (eg redistributive taxation).

    The problem is not the organization, structure, or equipment of the US military. The US military, even with WW2 organization and today’s equipment, can beat any opponent – even guerrillas like the Viet Cong and Taliban – if it is used correctly. That is, even a military organized like the WW2 military can win if it is used like the WW2 military – to win. However we are not trying to win in Afghanistan any more than we were trying to win in Vietnam.

    The solution to the problem is not new organization, new structure, or new equipment, it is a new political leadership that actually has some balls and actually wants to win. No military organization or technology can win if the political leadership is determined to lose. If the political leadership is determined to win, then even WW2 military organization and technology can get the job done. For example, the US helped the Greeks and Filipinos crush insurgencies after WW2 using US organization and equipment. There is nothing magic about insurgencies. They can be beaten – but first and most importantly, you have to want to beat them.

It seems like she just wanted to mive up-class. This is probably due to the malthusian nature of pre-industrial life: as Greg Clark claims, you probably had to “climb” up the ladder of classes all the time just to stay in the same place. It was a class treadmill always pushing you (and your lineage) down, century after century. And if you (you lineage, that is) fell off the back of the treadmill, that was the end.

    – Our nuclear arsenal- the largest in the world- ensures no other country will fuck with us- M.A.D. and all that.

    Currently terrorists and guerrillas are little more than a nuisance so we aren’t willing to kill a lot of civilians in retaliation for their misdeeds. Not even Israel. That would change though if the casualty counts got high enough.

    They’re a “nuisance” that drains money and resources. As long as the cancer is ignored, it spreads.

    It’s a mark of our strength that we can lose these battles without any real consequence.

    Everything has consequences. War is always expensive, and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are bleeding the U.S. dry. The civilizational graveyards are full of empires that collapsed in part due to fiscal irresponsibility.

    Do you honestly believe we would lose a real war against a real foe?

    If our ability to fight said foe has been sapped from having spent years chasing around AK-wielding savages to no material benefit, then yes.

    They can be beaten – but first and most importantly, you have to want to beat them.

  114. for douglas adams fans: the pic reminds me of the third book in the “hitchhiker’s guide” trilogy, in which an advanced civilization split its members into three groups: those who were creative, visionary, leaders, etc.; those who actually made things and had skills; and then all the rest – hairdressers, telephone sanitizers, etc. then they sent ship three off to some distant planet – said the rest would follow, but did not. Sort of a comic-satiric version of Australia’s use for the British empire. Of course the joke was that that third ship became the ancestors of the human race.

    I’m not sure that images like this are proof positive of American decline, but Roissy writes such entertaining prose about it that it almost didn’t matter.

    There is a lot of well-known history in it, but the novel insight is the linkage of the spheres of domestic politics and foreign policy, usually thought of as separate, into a framework of four distinct traditions that extend back to the creation of the Republic. Worth a read if you’re into that kind of thing.

    To anyone is claims the US military will lose in a world war or is losing in a current war: What are you defining as victory? Just because we lose some troops to suicide bombers, and nigger-rigged IED’s doesnt me we are losing. Our current wars arent even wars, nor even Somalia or Vietnam. If we wanted we could wipe those countries out with conventional arms. Our military is hilariously powerful to the extent that there is literally no threat of invasion to the US homeland and there is no country we couldnt bring to its knees. But why bother with Afghanistan and Iraq? It’s like wrestling with your 50 lb little brother, you could utterly destroy him if you wanted to but you dont have to in order to dominate and get the outcome you want.

    What actually threatens us is the formation of a singular power that could take us head on. The scattered Islamist threat coalescing into singular Caliphate power is one such threat. As long as we disrupt the locales where this could happen (which we are currently succeeding at), they will remain guerillas content to pick off a couple troops here and there but never a strategic threat to the empire.

    On the global military chessboard, it’s the US with 16 queens versus everyone else with a bunch of pawns, and a limited smattering of rooks, bishops and knights.There will be a couple tactical victories here and there, but strategically we could checkmate anyone at anytime we choose.
    The world knows this which is why we are feared, respected and hated. Nations who play nice with us, get favorable trade terms and can sell into the massive American market and get wealthy, those who dont get poor and backwards. Look at East Germany or North Korea or the entire Middle East. This is the story of the Cold War.

  135. PA nails it, as usual. As do some others.

    But I’ve got to say, the combination of breathtaking ignorance and absolute denial seen in certain posters (fortunately a minority) is astonishing.

    We’re number one! We’ve got nukes! We’ve got the world’s best economy! We’ve got the best military! No problems here!

    LOL!!!

    It’s sort of like the idiot son who possesses none of his father’s diligence, intelligence, honor, or just common sense. Yet he inherited millions…and quickly proceeds to squander it. He absolutely denies that there is anything fundamentally wrong with his behavior, even as the family fortune is scattered into the four winds. Utter denial.

    It is certainly true that the U.S. still commands enormous resources. But all of these things are fleeting if the original source, the original cause, of the wealth is destroyed.

    Nukes? Yep, we’ve got plenty of them. Nobody said that a declining America wouldn’t be dangerous. It will be. It just won’t be a technological leader. Also remember that the technological breakthroughs that led to our ascendance came into being during an earlier America – one very different demographically and culturally from today

    We still have the benefit of a certain inertia, and there are still plenty of white geeks tinkering around, but they are declining. Fundamentally, we can’t even produce our own scientists and engineers anymore. Not because the genetic talent isn’t there, but because we’d rather indoctrinate them with PC than properly educate them. There are idiot clowns who think this is a good thing. Their solution? Let Chang do the heavy thinking, teach white kids that racism is evil. That’ll solve the problem.

    World’s best economy? Who is kidding who? Again, we have an amazing inheritance of wealth that is being squandered double quick time in astonishing amounts of debt, both governmental and private. Where are we going to generate new wealth to replace it? Selling expensive hamburgers to one another, while racking up ever more debt to do it? That’s our solution?

    Best military? That requires enormous wealth. Where is that wealth going to come from once we squander our seedcorn? It also requires top technology. How do we maintain our lead in technology when we can’t even produce our own scientists and researchers anymore? Yes, we can import Chang…but anyone with a brain realizes that this can turn on a dime. And Chang might have some other ideas, like stealing our technology and giving it to his home nation. I understand this happened recently, with China getting an entire generation of advanced technology (including nuclear) for FREE. What we spent literally trillions to develop, they got for the cost of a spy or two. Our solution to this problem? Bring in more Changs! What a bargain!

    I could go on and on, for instance about the decline in the family unit and social mores, but you get the drift. The bottom line is that nearly everything good about America was created, or at least the context for its creation was established, by traits and conditions that are actively being wiped out by the *new improved* version. Just like the wastrel son, the new improved version lacks virtually all of the good qualities of the original.

    Our elites, and more than a few of their small time water carriers, are utterly delusional. What matters are fundamentals, the organic strengths or weaknesses of a nation. For the U.S., they are almost all negative. This isn’t a pendelum swing either. For example, what pendelum gets rid of all the Mexicans? Short of violence, none. What has been done cannot lightly be undone.

    But hey, there is still some of the inheritance left, both economic, demographic, and cultural. Let’s blow it! No problems here!

If I had ten divisions of those men our troubles here would be over very quickly.

  144. Firepower: “We would lose in humiliating grand guignol fashion.”

    Agreed. It’s actually much, much worse than people realize. People don’t realize the insane crap individual Americans had to do to win WW-2. They also don’t realize that Americans didn’t do most of the heavy fighting, and if we were somehow ultimately responsible for winning, it was our factories and rivers of Russian blood which did it.
    Examples of insane crap Americans had to do to win WW-2:
    1) We imprisoned a decent percentage of our own American population to avoid local sabotage. Good idea, bad idea: imagine trying it now! Impossible! Arabs and muslims make up a tiny proportion of the U.S. Armed forces; something like 3000 total muslims, yet there are a half dozen instances of treachery and sabotage in what amounts to a fairly benign colonial war. Imagine an all out duke-nukem with brutal occupations; where we must do violent horrible things to lands where people come from. Do we have the social cohesion to do it? I don’t know if we do.
    2) How did we win the postwar counter insurgency against a nation of fanatical Nazi Germans? Simple: we starved them out for years and brutally executed ring leaders. The German population was given starvation rations for a very long time. There was real talk in American power circles about simply killing most of the Germans off.
    3) The pacific war was so insanely brutal as to be beyond modern comprehension. Japanese battle ethics were to fight to the last man; they made suicide bombers look like small beer. Therefore, Americans exterminated Japanese like vermin. Here is a home front photo from Life magazine; it is a Japanese skull sent to a soldiers sweetheart. I posit that such men capable of this are very rare in the modern day. American soldiers are tough, but they like to think of themselves as the good guys, and they couldn’t in fighting like this. American women like this no longer exist.

    For more: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_mutilation_of_Japanese_war_dead
    4) Moral fiber: good soldiers believe in what they are fighting for,a nd have the backing of society at large. Modern nihilist Americans raised in single parent homes are unsocialized beasts; a rabble who can’t even work for a living, let alone do something difficult, like soldiering. The college educated are worse. This leaves a small class of people who are so different from all the rest, they might as well have a different country.

    American upsides: our military technology and tactics is still top of the world, and despite our outsourcing of so much of our manufacturing capabilities, we’re still the biggest manufacturers in the world. Probably doesn’t help much in a World War situation involving armies of millions. We’d have to use nukes. And lots of other nations are capable of using nukes. Allies are also nonexistent, other than the Australians.

    Old German vets of WW II routinely said that American soldiers man-for-man were the worst soldiers of the war (i.e. easiest to shoot). Worse than the French, even.

    The fact that these Krauts lived shows that they were probably cowards who surrendered only to have their women raped by Russians or used as prostitutes by the victorious armies.

    I wonder what all the dead German soldiers thought of American fighting ability.

    Where was freedom loving, world “liberator” US, when Hitler’s army overrun all Europe in one Blietzkrieg by one. Why you were waiting so long, for 5 years?

    The US was keeping the UK and USSR alive with massive amounts of seaborne supplies at great loss of American lives.

    ….Sitting in your continent overseas, and sending some troops against medieval japan.

    Japan had arguably the most modern navy in the war until the US destroyed it. Their ground troops were excellent and their pilots and planes were top class. Don’t diminish the Japanese to cover your modern European insecurities.

  183. The technique for eliminating American resistance to Culture-distortion has been uniformity. Every American has been made to dress alike, live alike, talk alike, behave alike, and think alike. The principle of uniformity regards personality as a danger and also as a burden. This great principle has been applied to every sphere of life. Advertising of a kind and on a scale unknown to Europe is part of the method of stamping out individualism. Everywhere is seen the same empty, smiling, face. The principle has above all been applied to the American woman, and in her dress, cosmetics, and behavior, she has been deprived of all individuality.

    American family life has been thoroughly disintegrated by the Culture-distorting regime. In the usual American home, the parents actually have less authority than the children. The schools enforce no discipline, nor do the churches. The function of forming the minds of the young has been abdicated by all in favor of the cinema.

    Marriage in America has been replaced by Divorce. This is said with no paradoxical intent. In the large cities, statistics show that one of every two marriages ends in divorce. Taking the country as a whole, the figure is one in three. This situation can no longer be described as Marriage, since the essence of Marriage is its permanence. The divorce trade is a large business upon which lawyers, private detectives and other charlatans thrive, and from which the spiritual standards of the nation suffer, as reflected in the emotionally indifferent attitude of American children.

    A part of this general perversion is the physical-youth-mania that has been spread abroad in America. Both men and women, but especially the latter are inwardly obsessed with the idea of remaining physically young in appearance. Advertising plays upon these fears and commercializes them. The “girl” is the ideal feminine type. The mature woman aspires to be a girl, but not vice versa. A “girl” cult has come into existence, which, together with cinema, revue, jazz, divorce, disintegration of the family, and uniformity, serves the vast purpose of destroying the national feelings of the American.

She told US Weekly she met Tiger in Las Vegas in 2007. Grubbs provided sexual text messages she said she received from Tiger.

    Jaimee Grubbs Says Tiger Sent Her Sexy Texts. “I will wear you out…when was the last time you got (bleeped)?” one message read. Another one from Tiger read, “Send me something very naughty…Go to the bathroom and take (a picture).Grubbs was a cocktail waitress in San Diego when she met Tiger in 2007 at Light nightclub in Las Vegas.

    good points, but they are self inflicted problems. If we drilled our own oil again and did things like sustainable logging again, we could close our trade deficit. If we made the investment in and commitment to 80% or more of our electricity needs from nuclear power, as France has, we would export power. We have made it too difficult to operate a manufacturing business in the US in many places. We fail to demand high educational standards from our teachers and make policy that willfully destroys the family in order to create a greater need for government services We perpetuate a drug war, which has in effect created narco-states or threatened states on or near our borders. We won’t make a serious commitment to visit Mars or a similar technological project to advance science. These things, if corrected, would change our trajectory quickly. We would save over $700 billion a year in cash outflows from oil imports if we achieved energy independence. That much money returned to our economy would solve the national debt problem rather quickly, given the multiplying factor from the velocity of money in the economy and the high paying jobs it would create at home. These jobs would in turn solve many other problems. Economic growth is the best social policy. We need only accept a common vision and choose to achieve it. However, we remain a nation divided and uncertain of what it wants.

    How concerned can you be with the decline of America when you write a blog that mocks men who engineer great products and build great companies while encouraging readers to waste their lives with an obsessive hunt for ass and the certainty of dying childless?

    Nailing hot ass (and sometimes slumming with not-quite-so-hot ass) is fun and all, but hardly something to spend your life desperately pursuing, particularly given that you can get a decent amount without all that much effort. To put it in your language, devoting your life to chasing women is subverting yourself to them and, thus, very beta.

    The true alpha thing to do — and the thing that would help save the country — is finding the best genetic mate you can, marrying her and having lots of kids. (The kids, oddly, are satisfying in much the inexplicable way that sex is satisfying. There’s no logical reason for it, but your genes program you to get satisfaction there.)

    While not procreating, alphas are building value, not to submissively pamper the woman but because building greatness is what the best men feel compelled to do (more genes, presumably). And when you get opportunities to safely score some ass on the side — and those opportunities come — then it’s a nice bonus, but not really something to get worked up about one way or the other. An alpha’s happiness doesn’t depend on the women, the way yours does.

And then after a war that cost Britain huge amounts of its wealth and a tragic loss of manpower we had a second world war while America, which joined in rather late in 41, because they wanted to see which side to go with, Initiated the lend lease program which was hugely costly to the UK and caused the decline of the empire. In fact the last loan was only paid off a few years ago.

    She is a tumor on American Womanhood and in her most benign form has exposed a rotting foundation that is spreading unchecked far and wide in the USA.

    As many know, the “Jr. Year Abroad” has been a genteel fixture of young ladies seeking mediteranean lust for generations going back to Jackie-O. Most went, studied a bit, and slept alot with older Professors, young playboys and just swarthy locals who made their squeaky clean red-necks back home look bland. Then after sowing said wild oats, they came back and settled back in the USA, with none the wiser.

    None of this matters, except when the socio-path enters. Her shakles thrown off, she destroys at will. Cloaked in the novelty of the exotic, uninhibited American, she is the Blackwidow as Butterfly.

    Beware, her Myspace page is the Miss Jekyl/Hyde, that many game-players here engage on a daily basis and ‘know’. These are the women who endear rage, wrath, and fury in civilized man.

    Her herpes sores erupted only when trapped, revealing her rotting soul. Many more infest our society, not condemned by an ancient paternalstic society that will not accept a praying mantiss godess.

    Heed the warning: You have seen a witch.
