[ - ] I prefer western culture to others, and as a result, I'd like to sharply limit non-western immigration to the US, because I don't want our western culture to be eroded/undermined. That's pretty reasonable, but if you say this in public a torrent of politically-correct preeners will go berserk. But somehow I get the impression that most of them are also fans of western culture, and would be pretty upset if it DID vanish. 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I couldn't agree with you more. Idiot lib whites will say that they know whites are going to become minorities in their own countries, and they even know it intellectually. But they don't really *believe* it. They think whites will still be the majority, and there will also be some other people hanging around too. Sadly, it's not going to have a pretty ending.

I suspect they'll just leave certain areas for majority-white areas like we saw in the 1960's with "white flight." Sort of like how there aren't many poor white people in northeastern Brazil - the whites up there tend to be well-heeled, and the downwardly-mobile ones head south to parts of Brazil with a lot more whites. Because it's pretty terrible to be poor and white when there aren't that many other poor whites around. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Ex husband here. My ex has my son most of the time. I have him one weekend a month and one overnight a week. When he was younger I agreed to that because I did think he needed more time with his mom. I'm now married and have another child and I want them together more. My older son says he doesn't want to come more, due to his mom's proximity to his friends, activities, Etc. But I think she may have told him to say that. My lawyer thinks court would maybe give me more time (unclear, since I did agree to the original setup). Should I force the issue since I think my son(now 10) should have more time with his dad and brother, or leave well enough alone? 33 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
