(Not) John Cleese on Threats to Europe (Updated) | Power Line:
I've been thinking that we have returned to the 1970's with the stagnant economy, complete lack of respect for the US and it's leadership around the world, and sort of a general "malaise". I'm predicting a series of nasty dark cold winters to "ice it". Back in the '70s, folks were CERTAIN that we were sliding into a fresh ice age, and not without the winters to make you think they were right!
Maybe I'm off by a few thousand years though. It is too bad this ISN'T written by John Cleese, because it sounds like him, but it is good anyway. So odd that when nations had cultures, there was diversity of culture and you could actually make fun of them! Life was so fun before we did away with actual learning and culture and gave in to prissy political correctness.
I really liked the 430BC thing, but it is short and WELL worth the read. I pray the Aussies need NEVER cancel the barbie!
And as a final thought – Greece is collapsing, the Iranians are getting aggressive, and Rome is in disarray. Welcome back to 430 BC.
