The Goddess in the Harbor

The U.S. would probably never tolerate a huge statue of Jesus by a harbor, a la Brazil.  Granted, we’re one step away from becoming a theocracy — but yet we have a friggin’ GODDESS in a harbor!  And not only that, but she’s from FRANCE!  I demand an investigation.  I mean, isn’t that like communistic socialist pinko Muslim Antichrist stuff?  What will Obama do next?

(And I guess God is punishing New Orleans for sinnin’ and stuff with Sarah Palin’s treasured oil drill?  Man that woman is one hell of a witch…)

News has it that some of the U.S.’s best and brightest young are leaving the country to find work.  This statement alone should shock you.  Yes, they leave India.  They leave China.  Increasingly, they leave Europe.  We won’t even mention Mexico because who has to.  But the U.S.?

Worse, ain’t no goddess anywhere to welcome them.  Er maybe dat’s good, eh Hoss? Or maybe you’re too stupid to figure out what I’m talking about.

In fact, I was informed years ago by a rather snooty young Frenchwoman that although it is relatively easy for foreigners to come to the U.S. and get work visas, the reverse is not true for U.S. citizens; i.e. they can’t easily go abroad and get jobs due to very strict international immigration policies.  Add to this the fact that U.S. corporations are increasingly loathe to hire U.S. citizens…and well, you’ve got a bit of a dilemma if you’re trying to claim that people come to the U.S. to enjoy our standard of living and opportunities.  How can they when we are leaving to have any kind of standard of living, let alone any opportunity, at all?  And not only are we leaving, but we are apparently happily dealing with the hassles and paperwork involved in the effort to leave.  That’s kind of a damning statement about the state of things, isn’t it?

Must be a curse from that there goddess, eh?  Gotta set Glenn Beck on this one, fast.  Get out your chalkboard and your twisted logic, brother.  You may be the one to explain it all…cuz the rest of us sure can’t.

P.S. — to the totally befuddled — this is mostly a parody of right-wing twisted logic, although I do believe that we have a problem in this country with the standard of living and with job opportunities for those who were born here.
