    I know I take a lot of shots at American conservatives, but I'd rather live in a society where people with whom I disagree are trying to restrict government than in a society of people who think there is not enough government.

    The socialists in Europe think that taking a vacation is a "human right."

    Vacationing a human right, EU chief says

    And Europeans wonder why they grow slower than America.

    It's nonsense like this that makes it clear the EU is one of the worst things that could have happened to Europe.

    The only thing that keeps Norway from collapsing into insolvency is that it is the Saudi Arabia of Northern Europe. They have tons of oil money to support their social welfare system.

    Yeah, I know.

    Let's see if we can trade the enviroweenies...They shut their faces about traditional energy production and they get a yearly free vacation to Haiti, North Korea, Venezuela or Cuba.

    I work at a company where half the company is in Germany and 60% of the business is overseas.

    Most of them only come here because they have to. The places they do go and spend their money is in blue states. They don't like Confederate Republicans. I told them it's not contagious.
