LOL Of The Day!!!!

Hilarious, and sad at the response of the American people. 

From TownHall ….

State Dept: Remember, If You’re Ugly Here, You’re Ugly Abroad So People Are Probably Scamming You

The actual Tweet the State sent ….

Townhall records some Tweet responses you can read at the link above.  Apparently, some Americans are pretty thin-skinned regarding their looks.  The State deleted the Tweet and apologized. 

It’s probably sound advice.  But, it may not be that they’re just trying to scam or rob the homely lasses.  Mickey Gilley had something to sing about the dynamic of men, at some time of the night, approaching women.   ………  Tell it Mickey!

    Vacation in Sweden? Nah, all the rooms are crammed full of Muslims. The Swedes are killing their 32bn EUR tourism industry by turning it all into Muslim coddling camps!

        I know people who do. They hate it/are grateful for it. I told them to go get them, and get all they can. I’m 100% about going Gault. The ck’suckers have milked me until I’m almost dry. I’ll be damned if some of mine won’t get just a little of what I’ve already given. My problem is, if they stay on it for the rest of their lives, they won’t come close to taking what I’ve already given, (not freely). Those are my people, who would have gained it from me, regardless, until I couldn’t. But, instead, I had to pay, and pay, and pay, a middle man, to give to someone else, and left me with little ability to help my own. To my dying day, I’ll hate the many Americans who think this system is just.

          Why am I so unforgiving to the Greek? Simple. Their idea of who should fix the problems caused by a pretty socialist state was, MORE socialist state. And from times of the Ottoman occupation their idea was to exploit and subvert the state any way they can. They should have stopped doing that once they got their OWN state.

          I was riding public buses across Crete. I paid NOTHING. NOTHING. In 1984. All subsidized to the point you should have stopped even asking for tickets. And Crete is very mountainous, grand vistas, mountain roads on the edge of the abbyss. I was sitting by the open door because all seats were occupied, I could look several hundred meters down right before my feet. Great fun.

          During recent state elections in Baden Wuerttemberg, Sachsen-Anhalt and Thuringia, up to 30% of the CDU MP’s got culled. It’s a bloodbath.

          German Union congress, DBG, complains that their members voted for AfD disproportionally often. Well – workers are the ones who finance all the islamisation madness. So. The social democrat SPD and the unions do not represent the interests of the workers anymore. They will either change their tune or die.

          That’s not the immigrant’s fault. Your jobs are
          a) in China because your industry outsourced them
          b) taken by robots.

          Because: If say the population of the US suddenly doubles through immigration legal or illegal and the structure of society stays the same, there would also be twice as many jobs. Removing x people also removes demand and kills y jobs.

          This is the age old wage competition and automation dilemma. I suggest protectionism – I really do; if going broke is the alternative – against the outsourcing, and the other question, how to get people productive in the face of automation, the answer in history was always the creation of completely new products and services. Why doesn’t this happen now?

          Because ZIRP prevents Creative Destruction. Old zombie industries must be destroyed so the fresh shoots can conquer what’s theirs to be taken.

        • DirkH says:

          … the USA does not have too few jobs – It has too few jobs PER CAPITA… doesn’t matter whether the person is native or immigrant.

        • DirkH says:

          And of course one major reason for lack of job creation especially by NEW enterprises is the rising minimum wage. It is specifically designed to protect zombie companies against upstarts who can only pay lesser wages, and it keeps the unqualified unemployed.

          It is a perversion by the state.

        • DirkH says:

          And, even the US administration DOES protectionism in certain cases. They just slapped 260% tariffs on Chinese steel because the Chinese have a gargantuan overproduction that they now want to offload somewhere else.

        • leftinflagstaff says:

          ‘That’s not the immigrant’s fault.’

          I said early in the post that we’ve been blaming someone other than ourselves.

          ‘… doesn’t matter whether the person is native or immigrant.’

          Get back to me after you’re a century or so into unlimited immigration, legal or illegal.

        • leftinflagstaff says:

          ‘It is a perversion by the state.’

          A state that grows stronger thru it’s people, tolerating excessive immigration.

          “‘… doesn’t matter whether the person is native or immigrant.’
          Get back to me after you’re a century or so into unlimited immigration, legal or illegal.”

          See, I see a CULTURAL problem when a people is turned into a minority in parts of its own state. Not an employment problem. The employment problem is one of work/capita. Totally separate from the obvious cultural problems which manifest themselves in street violence.

        • leftinflagstaff says:

          ‘Because: If say the population of the US suddenly doubles through immigration legal or illegal and the structure of society stays the same, there would also be twice as many jobs. Removing x people also removes demand and kills y jobs.’

          ??? Population decides available jobs? Then no nation’s unemployment rate would never rise above 0.

          “What % of the immigrants flowing into Germany do you believe are going to become job creators?”

          A few. Car repair shops, barbers, gastronomy… They are in that regard not very different from Germans. These small shops will in turn employ more of them. Half or 2/3 of them will be unemployed.

          So, the problem is not so much that they take employment away but that THEY become the unemployed buffer – and therefore consume resources. Which is more of a problem in Europe than in the USA because of our generous welfare.

        • leftinflagstaff says:

          ‘So, the problem is not so much that they take employment away but that THEY become the unemployed buffer – and therefore consume resources. Which is more of a problem in Europe than in the USA because of our generous welfare.’

          Sounds like your current shop owners haven’t yet figured out they’ll work for much less pay than Germans. Or your larger companies haven’t begun to flee the tax increases that pay the immigrant’s welfare.

          Problems that are easy to avoid if you don’t let them in.

        • I just don’t believe that in reality, any nation will ever again be similar to the US in 1890, where this degree of rapid immigration can occur without harming the current population. And you could argue that we didn’t absorb that one unscathed. Our first Great Depression soon followed. And even less ability to absorb the current one.

        • cdquarles says:

          Our government is a reflection of our culture and society, which are made by the people currently living in it.

          That said, protectionism doesn’t work. People trade because both sides of the transaction believe that they are better off, right then, by agreeing to the terms of the trade. Thus, no economic value is ever constant, nor is there any such thing as a ridiculous price. Prices are either too high or just right; but if you want to label a high price as ridiculous, fine, just remember that the label only applies to you. Likewise, no one ever has a ‘right’ to a job nor a ‘right’ to an income. Both of those must be earned from honest transactions. Free markets discover prices, they don’t ‘set’ them, for prices are made by the actors when they trade. On top of that, the ‘invisible’ things matter in that discovery, too (think ‘Broken Window Fallacy’).

          So what should we do? I don’t know; but as long as economic fallacies are promoted as economic truths, we are never going get different results from doing the same things we keep doing incorrectly, repetitively. I do know that we should be promoting individual liberty and personal responsibility. Both of those things are damaged by excessive government.

          Trade of products, maybe. I think our days of being better off from a trade of people, are long gone.

          “Sounds like your current shop owners haven’t yet figured out they’ll work for much less pay than Germans. ”

          First, nobody works in Germany for less than 1000EUR a month – Hartz IV / social security is equivalent to about 850 EUR a mont so working needs a higher incentive.

          Second, the SPD-CDU-government has introduced a minimum wage. Taxi fares increased by 25% or so. Unions are usually behind such demands – it protects their members from unqualified competition – and in our case, keeps refugee immigrants out of the labor market when they have no qualification.

          Apprenticeships are ecxempt and paid with about 700 EUR/month.

          “That said, protectionism doesn’t work.”

          It does. Abe Lincoln used it to industrialize the USA; the German economist List looked at it and copied it, the policy was implemented by Bismarck and industrialized the Wilhelminian Reich. Since the 1980ies China uses it to industrialize itself – with a lot of financial help and advice from Taiwan and Japan who did it before.

          China has most favored Nation status as trade partner in the USA. Clinton is behind that. The reverse is not true! Now why would Clinton do something like that? Well it was a deal… from which Clinton and Rubin profited handsomely, personally…

        • DirkH says:

          CD, you are right about single transactions. But the consequence is that a nation does not develop for instance its railway industry because an established competition delivers railways cheaper. Well ok you might say, what’s the problem. The problem is you never get to enter that market.

          If I start developing at home say a new C++ compiler people might call me crazy because there are already free ones on the market. But maybe I have the long term goal of entering the market for C++ compilers (a successfull small company that did that is Edison Design Group – the very good Intel compiler uses their front-end). This is the equivalent of selective protectionism on an individual level. You do it for your own long term strategic goals. And in my opinion, any nation is free to decide so.

          Someone said, a nation needs control of its steel production, it’s transport and it’s harbors. Otherwise she cannot exist as an independent nation. You get blackmailable.

          “Dirk,

          I found 3 boneheads amongst dozens of people I talked to who think that anything stopping Muslims from coming in is totally Nazi. Two of them were long term university victims / wankerati, the third one has too many hard left unemployed friends.

          All WORKING people understand perfectly well.
