Victor Davis Hanson "America Citizenship and Its Decline"  One minute and fifty-six seconds...   Doesn't this kind of go along with Paul Harveys' warning to America almost 60 years ago?

Yep, same message. I don't understand how some people can't see that this is where we are currently headed.

Sure taking a long time to get there.  Reminds me of all the preachers making a living off of saying when the end of times is.  So far so good though.

I'm guessing that you haven't heard about how O'hare has become a homeless, 'migrant' encampment? And NYC, have you heard that they've switched to home schooling because they're housing them at the schools?

Like many on the left; Mr Hanson was 'once' a registered 'member' of the 'Democratic Party'. He has been a registered independent since 2020. Even so, he is a supporter of Donald Trump and wrote a book in 2019 book titled: "The Case for Trump"
Who knows, even 'gww' might have a change of mind about the Democratic Party?  :shocked: :wink: :grin:

You think this is the first time in our history of such things as you mention?  Are you sure there have not been continuing situations in different places here in america since our very founding?  If you never heard about similar stuff, it may sound new and discouraging to you.  However, it is really just another problem to be solved just like we have done through out our great history.  Not quite as new a thing as it may seem to you since it is currently being highlighted.  Definitely not a sign of americas over all decline, but just another problem for a great country to work on fixing.

Fixed or not, it will probably be out of the news cycle as soon an the election is over.

I don't recall ever hearing about this problem before, when did it happen last? Why should we have to 'fix' it, rather than prevent it in the first place? And why did Mayor Adams of NYC quit complaining about the problem he's facing when they started an investigation into his campaign finances? And why did we stop hearing about that investigation when he quit complaining about his problem? I'd really like to hear more about O'hare airport being previously utilized as an illegal immigrant camp.

This is just four days ago.  Pretty sure you made the same claim on this site before four days ago.  Come on man.

Makes the phrase, "swallowed hook line and sinker" something that might still be useful in modern times.

That's pretty funny right there. The caption on that says, "NYC Eric Adams LASHES OUT At Democrats Over Border Crisis, Migrant SURGE", but that is not was the video depicts. Did you even watch it? Before they opened the investigation into his campaign finances, he was straight up blaming AJ for the problem. Now, he's blaming bus companies, Gov. Abbott and anyone else but AJ and our legislators who don't seem to want to curb the problem. Are you aware that they opened an investigation into his campaign finances right after he went to DC to see AJ face to face but AJ refused to meet with him? And have you heard anything on that investigation since he quit blaming AJ for the problem?

The investigation was started two months ago and this was one month ago.  He wants money and is doing what he thinks will get him some and has not stopped.

I know the narrative is the Cabool is in charge and picking on the right.  Did you ever think that maybe he did have campaign finance issues that need investigating.  One may have very little to do with the other.   I heard him some where else just a few days ago but this is a video that gives enough proof that the two plus two math you are using only adds up to about 1.5.

Given where he is, I pretty much expect it. Don't you find it ironic that the investigation started right after he went to DC to complain to AJ about his 'migrant' situation? Don't you find it ironic that since he changed his tune that investigation seems to have gone away? He's as compromised as AJ and it epitomizes the corruption of the democratic party.

Hi Folks,

I *listen* to what is *being played*, but I cut to the comments right away:

Democrats playbook.
Step 1. Manufacture a crisis.
Step 2. Blame someone else.
Step 3. Blame the crisis.
Step 4. Get funding to "combat" crisis.
Step 5. Get rich.
Step 6. Repeat.

That mayor is doing everything he possibly can to put the blame elsewhere rather than upon himself; he would rather call out all of New York for being too dumb to understand how are voting, and our government works.

All NYC wants is more money.

So far so good though.

Do you really think so?  If you look at other great civilizations that fell, barring some great disaster, they took years to crumble.  All the signs were there before the fall...or simply the decline into a shadow of what they had been.

If you never heard about similar stuff, it may sound new and discouraging to you.

You are correct that we have had people sleeping on the streets, etc.  The difference is where we were at the time.  And we did solve (over solve) the problem of early poverty, disease, etc. When you have solved a problem and then the problem comes back, it is a sign of something going wrong with your solution.  Entropy is a real thing, but we are helping it along with policy. 

You have to give the dems some credit though.  They'll put up with just about anything for power.  They have a Senator who took bribes and hid money in his closet, but they won't boot him because they'd lose the majority.  They have a guy that they allowed on critical committees that required security clearances and he slept with a Chinese spy.  Amorality has its advantages.   :grin:
Someone really ought to tell them that the world of Ayn Rand?s novel was not meant to be aspirational.
