    It's sad how they stopped trying to make better cars, and instead started shoving as much electronics as possible into these things. I'll be so miffed when our 30-year-old Ford finally gives up the ghost. Very little electronics, meaning any mechanic can work on it, so it's dirt cheap to service and repair. And it's reliable as hell. We did the math a while back and figured that the car has cost us about $1,200 a year, and that includes everything - purchase price, gas, service costs, insurance, car tax, everything.

    Jazz hands? Sounds like cultural appropriation to me. And what about amputees feeling left out?

    Yes, of course it would be up to Saudi Arabia to decide which people are citizens. It doesn't change the fact that if you think citizenship should be awarded based on where you popped out of the womb, you have to think it should apply to everyone. But no one actually believes this, it's always a one-way street in these people's minds. They think (or claim to think) of a Mexican born in the US as American, but they also think of an American born in Japan as American. It's not so much a matter of law as of logic.

    Jus soli is a goofy concept, and one that no one actually believes in. If they did, they would argue that a child born to American parents in Saudi Arabia was Saudi, not American.

    Houses prices dipped, not sure I would say they corrected, since they were reinflated by low interest rates.

    I kind of doubt he would have been able to get much of anything done, but he would have been a great president because of the things he wouldn't do. Of course he would be vilified for it, if you look at what "great" presidents have in common - like Lincoln and FDR - it's that they were able to get a lot of people killed. For some reason, "greatness" is somehow linked with getting a lot of Americans (and foreigners) killed.

    Cutting off welfare wouldn't actually solve the immigration problem, unless you also get yourself a massive surveillance and police state. The Western world has an abundance of wealth, people from other parts of the world crave this. If they don't get it by government force (welfare), they're gonna take it by individual force (crime). Sadly, it doesn't matter if most immigrants are non-violent, since it only takes a tiny percentage of the population to turn society into hell on earth. Imagine a neighborhood of 1,000 people. What do you think it will look like if just 10 (1%) of them are violent psychos?

    Low birthrates are a short-term problem, but a long-term solution. The human population has exploded over the last century and is frankly more than the carrying capacity of Earth, especially given that most of humanity desires to increase its consumption, regardless of what Western environment loons say or do. The really scary problem is high birthrates in certain areas, since it's both a short-term and a long-term problem, one which cannot be contained to those areas. I think I've posted this before, but it's a video everyone should watch: "The greatest shortcoming of the human race is our inability to understand the exponential function."
