Random observations for June 2017

Too much immigration can be worrisome, but the time to really worry will be when nobody wants to immigrate here.

Most religious people are not the enemy.  Religion is the enemy.  It's an infection that religious people are suffering from.

Put yourself first.  Nobody else will.

Any shouting person is boring.

"Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country" is a quote I've always hated.  The state exists for us; we do not exist for the state.

With the JFK quote. I don't interpret it as us supposed to be doing something for the state that is supposed to serve us, but rather as a call for us to be engaged with and contributing to our communities and society.
