Ok, let me say this first. If nothing else, we now know that Lou Dobbs, looks absolutely breathtaking in drag.
As to the video and it's message, I will say that it points well to the source of your frustrations, but does very little little to address them. It
just way to oversimplified and is riddled with false premises.
For example, it and then you state that all multicultural societies have failed. This is a fundamental premise to this argument. And whereas it is
technically correct, it is also misleading. The fact is that ALL societies but for the present ones have in fact also failed, no matter their
societal structure. It is like saying, every man who has eaten eggs will die. This is also true, but not a causal affect.
As for changing our use of the English language to reflect our unity as Americans, I am afraid it's just incredible simplistic and unrealistic.
Don't get me wrong, we have all been witness over the last twenty years our governments manipulation of the Word to be able to communicate the
terrible things they do in a way that appeases the public. I believe the late George Carlin had an amazing bit on this topic, before anyone was aware
of it. Changing our use of language is but a short term solution to a long term problem. Doing so will only take you as far as the other side of the
The only way the unity you crave can be seeded is by letting go of all our relative concepts that revolve around the Word itself. Stripped of our
conceptual shackles the Word loses it's power to divide.
That's what I think anyway.
Lou Dobbs is still funny.
