Quote of the Day: On immigration

 

“Whatever reasons there may be for forcibly keeping out of the country honest people who come here to work, and forcibly removing honest people from their jobs, homes, and families...
...it is not that the country is collectively-owned, like a members-only club, where the membership committee decides who can belong.”

~ Keith Weiner

  1. Yes. It is that the country is collectively-owned, like a members-only club, where the membership committee decides who can belong.”
    That's exactly what it is.

    Remember PC, censorship tells more about the censor than the contributor.
    In the end you just become another fixed opinion old dude.

  2. Would the membership committee of Thailand let you in to take pics of ladyboys Paul? Or would they be too conservative?
    I say whatever floats your boat, so long as it's done with consenting adults, but how would you take it if Thailand kicked and kept you out.

  3. I have to obey very strict regulation to come to and be in Thailand. These include / Police report Health report / Show of substantial funds / report to immigration every 90 days / Validated address / Preferably sustain Thai family while here /
    As for ladyboys, I never go near them, not even with camera. Even though they are always taller and better looking like me.
    Drugs and alcohol are two other things to steer clear of here



    The sovereign country has the property rights which PC asserts as fundamental to a successful society.
    If Thailand doesn't want me in, that's it, I don't come. I can go pretty well anywhere because I bring goodness with me. That/s the whole point. A country can and should discriminate to get the best.

    On the other hand I can get people into New Zealand you don't want to know about.
