I have no choice. I must don the mantle of greatness and take the reins of the country. Desperate times call for desperate measures. I will run for the office of dictator, or President in American parlance.

Readers may ask, “But Fred, what makes you think you are qualified to be President?” To which I respond, “Nothing. But have you seen what we have now? You want a White House with John Bolton in it?”

You see.

I append here a few of the enlightened policies which I will effect. Hold your applause until the end. Interspersed for perusal are a few slogans that I may use to incite your fervor.

One: I will end all policies hostile to Cuba. I will not make life difficult for eleven million perfectly good people to please a ratpack of phony Cubans afflicting Miami. In fact, I will offer Havana a twenty-billion-dollar loan if they will take the bastards back. Cuba poses no danger to anyone. They have good cigars. They should be left alone to live as they please and drink mojitos. If nutcake Republicans protest my policy, I will have them stuffed into an abandoned oil well. Along with the pseudo-Cubans.

Two: Elizabeth Warren will be required to take a DNA test to see whether she is a wild Indian. If she is, she will have to wear feathers. Otherwise, to see a psychiatrist.

We have nothing to be afred of but Fred hisself! Has a classic ring, don’t you think?

Three: I will end the Afghan war in an afternoon, relying on use the exit strategy proposed by James P. Coyne, the Sun Tsu of our age:

“OK, on the plane. Now.”

If Lindsey Graham complains that we need to kill more puzzled goatherds, I will have him inserted into the oil well on top of the Republicans and pseudo-Cubans, with Oprah tamped down on top as a sort of cork. There is nothing in Afghanistan that Americans need or want, except opium products, and private enterprise now provides these in abundance. Check the nearest street corner, or ask your kids.

Four: I will make membership in AIPAC a felony, and remind its members that I could have Oprah temporarily removed from the oil well to make more room. Aipackers can act as they please in their own country–I will not meddle in foreign affairs–but leave ours alone.

Fred! Ahhhhhh…. This has a nicely orgasmic quality that will appeal to the younger demographic. It represents the satisfaction that my rule will bring to the entire country.

Five: I will end all sanctions against Iran. Then I will sell those Persian rascals airplanes and cars and electronic stuff and towel softener and lock them into the American economic system. This will make Boeing and AT&T and Intel love me with the deep sweet love that never dies, at least as long as the money flows, and there will be lots of jobs in Seattle.

Six: I will bring charges of treason against the contents of the Great Double Wide on Pennsylvania Avenue. The evidence is incontrovertible. The first rule of empire is Don’t Let Your Enemies Unite. Everybody who has an empire knows this. Except us. Inside the White House a bunch of apparently brain-damaged political mostly left-overs, suffering from Beltway Bubble Syndrome, push China, Russia, and Iran together like some kind of international spaghetti-grope LGTBQRSTUV threesome. Who are our dismal leaders really working for? China?

A Fred in Every Pot This makes no sense, you may say. No, but we are doing politics. It is almost iambic pentameter, like Shakespeare. It will lend class to my campaign.

Seven: I will keep the F-35 program. It provides a lot of jobs. However, I will but get rid of the airplane. Isn’t this brilliant? Instead of building the thing, workers will dig holes and fill them in, but keep their current salaries. It will improve their health, and make America safer. The fewer dangerous things the children in the Five-Sided Wind Tunnel have, the less trouble it can cause.

Better Fred than Dead! Some readers will dispute this. What do they know?

Eight: I have been urged to end affirmative action on the grounds that things should be done by people who can actually do them. This is racist. I will have nothing to do with it. Instead I will make affirmative action democratic and inclusive. Everyone will qualify for it. Special privilege should not be restricted to a minority. It isn’t the American way.

Fred! Good as Any, Better’n Some. Good thinking.

Nine: I will abolish NATO. America should find a cheaper way to control the vassals. There is of course the bedtime story that NATO exists to confront the Russkies, and only incidentally provides a compulsory market for American armament. Nuts. Russia cannot seem dangerous to anyone who wasn’t dropped on his head at some formative juncture in life. Smallish population, low military budget.

Likewise South Korea, which has twice the population and forty times the economy of the North. If it wants to defend itself, it has my blessing. If it doesn’t, it isn’t our problem.

Tippecanoe and Frederick Too! This may require exhumation, but for this we have backhoes.

Ten: I will make a modest reduction in the military budget, say seventy-five percent. To keep the soldiers happy I will invest in high-throughput roller coasters, a shooting range with BB guns, and really loud speaker systems that say Va roooom and Bangbangbang and fzzzzzzzzboom. These will provide psychic emoluments of martial life without the murder.

ORDER IT NOW

Eleven: The money thus saved I will use on pressing domestic problems. LA has 68,000 homeless people on the streets, San Francisco loses conventions because of so many homeless defecating on the sidewalks, Portland has homeless riots,. The lower primates in Antifa and BLM rend such social fabric as any longer exists. Dams are aging. Our trains are out of of the Fifties. And we spend a trillion a year on goddam aircraft carriers?

Fred? Well, Got a Better Idea?

Twelve: As an educational reform, I will have the Department of Education filled with linoleum cement, the occupants being left inside. This will raise the national IQ by at least three points. I will pass an amendment to the fragments of the Constitution saying, “No federal entity or person shall say, think, suggest, or do anything whatever regarding schooling on pain of garroting.” Part of the savings from lowering the military budget will go to purchasing garrotes. The duration, content, and nature of the schools shall be left to localities without exception.

Thirteen: The father of any girl subjected to genital mutilation will be awarded a free gender reassignment operation, preferably with tin-snips. Genital mutilation should be inclusive. The father will then be placed for two weeks in the bottom of a public latrine in Uganda. If this doesn’t suffice to deter the practice, I may be forced to adopt extreme measures. A country that allows such treatment of daughters deserves to go to hell. And seems to be.

Fourteen: I will impose a literacy test for voting. People too dim to find their way home should not be permitted to influence policies they have never heard of and can’t spell. Yes, this might be called illiberal. If so, it will doubtless be the only example of illiberalism in this meritorious list.

Fifteen: In higher education, I will prescribe horse whipping for anyone saying microaggression, white privilege, whiteness, patriarchy, safe space, people of color, racism, any kind of phobia, or “Resist” in a squalling voice with an exclamation point. No curriculum containing the word “Studies” will be permitted.

Sixteen: Anyone prescribing Ritalin for children under twenty-one will be thrown from a helicopter.

In conclusion, I say to my yearning public, There, you, see, there is hope. Together we can do this. See you at the polls.

Introducing! The Fredian Occasional Latin Tour Guide!

America has some fifty-seven million residents of Latin-American descent, mostly citizens. Willy-nilly, they are part of America. Thinking that many Americans might want to know something about them, where they came from, what they do and have done, what manner of wights they be, the Occasional Tour Guide will offer, occasionally, some glimpses. These necessarily will be selective and biased. Putting a continent and a half in a web page would be awkward. I hope that readers will find them interesting, and a remedy to the wonderfuully silly idea that Latin America is a series of wretched hellholes.

Carmina Burana, la Orquésta Sinfónica de Xalapa, a city on th Atlantic coast. The sound quality is poor–what do you want from Youtube and computer speakers?–but it makes the point that not all of Mexican music is banda.

    We already have politicians who want to merge Mexico and the USA.

    Why would we need Fred?

  10. Along with most of the foreign policy platform here (particularly 8 and 9), I’m down with points-of-light 12 through 16. Having fun, Fred?

    It’s just fun and games for Mr. Reed because he’s a bugged-out expatriate who enjoyed the good times in America supported by regular working people. He’s left his American problems behind, but retains the rights to criticize each and every one of us*. See, Fred, I like your point 12 very much, as I am a Constitutionalist. Except here:

    I will pass an amendment to the fragments of the Constitution saying, “No federal entity or person shall say, think, suggest, or do anything whatever regarding schooling on pain of garroting.”

    Uh, hey idiot, it’s already in the Constitution in Amendment X: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” (I’m guessing Fred Reed never read the document.)

    You have distain, though, for anyone who takes this sort of thing seriously and actually wants to do something about it. No, no, those are the gun nuts and survivalists, right? Let’s rag on them too. Face it, you offer no solutions, which wouldn’t be a bad thing if you didn’t also badmouth anyone who gets off his ass to try to change the stuff we all don’t like. He may not have been too awful successful at it yet, but just one of those guys is Donald Trump.

    * We Americans, however, are mean, rude, and stupid for having the gall to criticize the exported bunch of Mr. Reed’s new countrymen, hence the opera music to make us see that the Mexicans are as sophisticated as the rude, crude, stupid Americans, … or something.

    Sounds good to me Fred, I particularly like the slogan; “Fred! Good as any, Better’n many!”
    One suggestion though for credibility on the quality of Latino culture. Carmina Burana is kind of a running joke among musical “Sophisticates”. One of our local famously sardonic DJs on KUSC one night said; “On tonight’s program, we are featuring a performance of Carmina Burana that almost makes it sound like music”. I would propose a clip of a performance of one of the works of Manuel Ponce. A good classical composer and he was Mexican, so a high quality, truly native Mexican example.

But you can still function, can’t you? Well, so can women who’ve had their parts modified. They have sex, they reproduce. So MYOB.

    Most of this could be accomplished merely by stating that you want to partition the country into Red and Blue areas. No more need for a Superman then. No more elections where everything hangs in the balance with every vote, where we need a Casear to guide us through the turmoil. In that light, your speech should be one about creating a safe space for conservatives and men. That’d not only get a lot more attention, it would be a lot more productive in the long run.

    • Replies: @Carroll Price
  18. Most Amusing! Reads like a rant that starts right after taking one too many shots of something a bit too strong. Probably tequila, knowing you.

    I like the AIPAC plan, but then it wouldn’t be long before the walls started closing in and the Israeli’s went and initiated their Samson option because you took away their American cash cows and cannon fodder. The Zionists are going to be a tough scourge to purge. Not impossible. But routing them all out without them retaliating by setting off nukes from inside our borders at ground level is a lofty goal that I am not 100% sure of how to accomplish just yet.

    But then you really lost me at the part where the Latin American population is a part of America. Latin America maybe. But here in North America they’re more like, hmm, soldiers of demographic replacement. Since I am not really all that interested in the inevitable balkanization of my nation by way of ever-rising demographic conflict with these feeder breeders, I can’t rightly endorse your whackadoo bid for presidency, much as I admittedly do like a majority of the platform.

    On a side note, it’s interesting that you’re eager enough to purge the Cubans that you’d pay to see them removed from America or even toss them down a well, yet you call the Latin population a part of America. Shows where those loyalties really lie, eh Fredevez?

    All that said, however, I think I still want a nice big wall on that southern border, with you and the Latin population on the far side of it. Not sure if Trump’s the man for the job, but I always looked at him as just the first of many stepping stones on the long path back to ethnonationalism for Americans. His wall never really sounded all that ambitious anyway. I’d prefer the kind of wall wide enough to comfortably accomodate 2 vehicle lanes with room along the sides for foot traffic, tall enough to give you that perilous sinking feeling when you look over the edge, and mounted with many weapons of a ridiculously large, statement-making caliber. I want them to be as much a part of the tourist attraction that the completed project will become as the wall itself. 57 million of your ‘willy-nilly’ reconquista companions should make for an excellent source of mortar.

    But even in spite of the wall ambitions, I confess that civil, perhaps even world war is somewhat inevitable in my decidedly cynical mind. Hopefully not just another pointless one between whites this time. But a coordinated war against Israel and the Zionist occupiers within so many of our governments as well as their CultMarx counterparts. I really don’t expect things to get better before they get much worse, but I am content with the idea of enduring significant losses to the American quality of life in order to purge the soldiers of demographic replacement and get America back on track with it’s founding charter. We can always build our way back up. That is, provided the soldiers of demographic replacement are not allowed to succeed in their namesake, in which case it’s game over and God be with central/eastern Europe as it will likely become the last bastion of intelligent life outside the sinosphere.

    Besides, don’t you think we’re overdue for a little trimming of the fat, Fred? What is true war but the crucible of natural selection for the apex species on the planet? We’re positively overflowing with dead-from-the-neck-up group think zombies all across the West. Would it not be more than a little beneficial to the entire planet to see the board cleared a bit? The process will make room for the strong by culling the weak who have flourished to the point of over-proliferation and subsequent onset of civilizational suicide via their usual, historically recurring brand of nihilistic hedonism.

    To me, such a war is, in of itself, a far bigger victory than ‘Presidente Fredo Reedo’s’ platform would ever achieve, as I see it to be something of a prerequisite for escaping the Kalergi plan’s clutches of idiocracy and ushering in the next age of true human advancement.

    My parents lost the house in a bitter divorce and I can attest that this is not true. If your parents got into a bitter divorce at 15 like my parents and divorced losing a load of money in the process then where do you go?

    I never HAD a house to live in. By the time I was in college my grandparents were in their 70′s and no longer wanted a young man around.

    Finally, my grandmother’s house was sold for shit because the property value was so awful in her Detroit neighborhood.

    So I never owned a house. I’d have no relatives to live with in the US at all. My brother lives in a small apartment in Los Angeles where he teaches college.

    This was one reason the US offered me nothing. I had nowhere to live.

    Mexican whites -French and Spanish, essentially-have a GOOD OLD TIME in Mexico. You’ll never see a woman who looks like Penelope Cruz trying to run across the San Diego highway.

    White Americans have to deal with the Red Man vs White Man conflict in Latin America that the ruling white Vincente Fox elite have had to suppress. The reason Creoles like Jorge Univision want immigration is so that the Aztecs don’t revolt (Or half-Aztecs).

    White Mexicans, whom I have known in college, detest Indians. White rednecks will brag about being “part Cherokee” but the Mexican white would never admit having Aztec blood.

    If the Hispanics do take over the US the Cuban whites will take over and whites of a sort will still run the US.

    I’ve got to give South of the Border whites some credit. They’ve dealt with racial issues much better than Anglo-Saxons in North America.

    If I were Fred I would amend the campaign as follows:

    Afghanistan, Syrian, and Yemen hostiles to visit world court for free lifetime stay in human rights jail.
    Declare all PACs to be Terrorist Organizations; treat their members accordingly
    Sanction not Iran but MIC, Congress, Saudi Arabia, Israel, Federal Reserve, and Wall Street.
    Remove EW and those infected with Beltway BS to Cuba for DNA reconfiguration therapy
    Replace airplane project with failing bridges, roads, and tunnel repair project.
    Put Special Privilege supporters and Ritalin prescribe rs, manufactures, & retailers in the oil well
    Distribute Russian, Spanish, Iranian, Korean language proficiency pills, these are ancient but proven
    cures for Cuban bashing, fake-news distribution & false flag engineering FND & FFE disease
    Homes for Homeless by non-free market administrative zoning and corrupt home builders: a great read.
    Localized education, Mutilation free family life, Literacy test eligibility to vote (and replacing commercialized Phd certification with inquiry and theory research) should free up a lot of oil well space for future needs.

    However amended the Fred campaign platform is poised to win the popular vote but the satellite manipulated voting machines will not allocate a single electoral college to Freed ; and after the election Fred himself will be banned from Washington, NYC, and Miami, Saudi Arabia, and Israel and his offspring will be put in the oil well.

    The message here is there is no “this will fix things” consensus. Private parties in charge of the public network refuse to allow open public discourse to interfere with their privately managed psycho engineered “born a sheep, be a sheep, remain a sheep, propaganda.

    “9/11 was used by Dick Cheney to significantly reduce the public’s, the judiciary’s, and Congress’ access to information about what the executive branch is doing, thereby preventing legal, legislative, and electoral action against the unlawful and unconstitutional behavior of the executive branch during the Cheney/Bush and Obama regimes. …

    Charlie Savage’s extraordinary book, “Takeover” (2007), describes how Cheney and his minions, John Yoo, Jay Bybee, David Addington, and Shannen Coffin, used secret Department of Justice (sic) memos and executive orders from George W. Bush to prevent the release of any information that would get in the way of Cheney’s agenda for war in the Middle East and a police state at home.

    If Americans understood that an immigrant from Korea, John Yoo, wrote secret DOJ memos that shredded both the separation of powers and US civil liberties, there would be even more opposition to immigration of peoples who are not dedicated to our founding document, the US Constitution. …

    David Ray Griffin’s 2017 book, “Bush and Cheney: How They Ruined America and the World,” also documents how Dick Cheney fed the US Constitution into a shredder.”

    — The zionization of the US Congress and the US military (see the US cooperation with Al Qaeda in Syria) are the direct consequence of the treasonous activities of various war profiteers, including such mega war profiteer as Cheney.

There is absolutely NOTHING in the US Constitution that allows the Feral Gov’t to have a damn thing to do with education. Like the Instapundit says, “read the whole thing”.

    BTW, I’m gonna teach my boy the Constitution before he’s out of elementary school, so he’ll know more than the entire Big-Ed-indoctinated staff all put together. They are nice ladies, but having ladies indoctrinate your kids into the matriarchy is what brings on the shitstorm of Peak Stupidity that America is undergoing today.

    Mr. Reed points out the stupidity very well, I might add, which is why I agree with him on most of his points. He’s just a dick for always criticizing anyone who makes an actual effort to fix things, such as the VDare guys/gals (unless that spat is over money).

    Ten of the top ten are located in Latin America.

    Zero of the top ten are located in some region other than Latin America.

    I don’t enjoy bringing attention to facts such as this, but those who advocate open borders vis-a-vis Latin America force the rest of us to point out all the potential downsides of such a policy.

    A brief note to those who equate female genital mutilation to male circumcision. The former is done to make the female lose all sensation resulting from sexual intercourse, denying her any future pleasure from sex, and to control her for life. The latter is done for health purposes, usually, and has no impact on future sexual activity. So stop the nonsense. They are not the same thing, and not even close. Just stop.

    I’ve known some poor semi-homeless Americans in the Philippines and life as a poor person in Philippines or Mexico is actually BETTER than being poor in the United States.

    If you are deep in middle-age and you have a choice between being homeless in the US in a freezing cold park in Connecticut (The one foreigner I knew living on the beach was an ex-steelworker from Bridgeport) or living on a beach in the Philippines on $200 or Mexico you are better off.

    The main reason is simply feral blacks who will assault homeless whites on the street for the sheer fun of it at night.

    The Connecticut steelworker explained that homeless camps are full of junkies. Homeless shelters are full of violent blacks and other minorities.

    Being poor in the US is actually WORSE than being poor in Asia because-

    A) Asia and other developing countries blow drug dealers away and lock up junkies for years so there no “crackhouses”.

    B) Asians in evolutionary terms are more advanced in mental abilities than most Hood Rats or Mestizos and this is why Filipinos and Thais can function in the US while blacks and Mestizos cannot.

    C) There is not the freezing weather.

    Boomers like my parents did not foresee in the 1980′s how bad things would get in their own autumn years. They had wild spend-it-all divorces figuring the economy would go strong forever for middle-class whites and middle-class jobs along with them.

    My father was a scientist and remarried a Portuguese women and divided his time between Maryland and Lisbon, Portugal.

    After age 19 I saw him maybe 3 times a year.

    My brother moved out of state to California at a time when it was still the Golden State and attended UCLA. I have not seen him in 11 years.

    The money from the sale of the house went to our college educations and the rest to my mother in a divorce settlement.

    My mother found work as an architect out of state and I was in college by then.

    The idea that you have to be a crackhead or a wino to end up homeless would be great, but that is not the case.

    In the 1980′s parents had huge legendary divorces that just totally wiped out some Boomers and left their Gen X kids (I was born in 1974) with no house.

    Gen Y’s parents were mostly Reagan-era Yuppies and helicopter parents so divorce rates went down when they were born in the 1990′s. This is a good thing because Gen Y has to live at home when they are 30 anyhow in this economy.

    fMy grandparents lived in Detroit and their property was worth nothing when they passed away, more or less. My father’s sister was disabled and the $70,000 got her moved into a trailer.

    Because even if the US dollar devalues to the Peso in Mexico or Philippines it is a better place for a retiree to be.

    And I know many white retirees who lived in the Philippines in poverty. Let me explain why-

    1) The weather is nice.

    2) Any country without blacks (And Muslims) is somewhat safer so being poor around Asians or even Mexicans is safer than living in some efficiency apartment adjacent to Section 8 in a US city.

    3) Local women will accept your standard of living and you can have a wife 30 years younger than you because they are used to being around poor men.

    4) The alcohol is dirt cheap and you can live in the local bar with other retirees partying up all day. So are female companions. There will always be some local woman you can screw after buying her 4 beers.

    5) You simply no longer have to care about what a screwed-up country the US is or see it get worse year after year. I left the US in 1999 at the age of 25 and you would not notice the difference but if you had been gone as long as I have you would see that it has gone wayyyy downhill.

    Male circumcision is performed as a remnant of ancient tribal law, it has absolutely no health benefits. In the US the practice began, partially, because some believed it would prevent males from from masturbating, and would reduce sexual promiscuity among men. Another reason circumcision became prevalent in the US was because of the high number of Jewish doctors, as well as a way for a doctor to make a quick buck where the patient couldn’t complain. It’s a barbarous practice and should be outlawed.

    What an odd comment. On the one hand Liz rightly identify the glaring double standard: male circumcision — ie genital mutilation — perfectly fine, female circumcision — ie genital mutilation — horrific crime. But then she goes in entirely the wrong direction by essentially advocating for both of these barbarisms when she says MYOB.

    If a male wishes to have his foreskin excised — for whatever reason — fine. But it must be his choice, and must await an age when he can be said to have achieved personal agency, and then too, the choice must be free from cultural coercion. Consequently, to perform that “mutilation” on an infant incapable of consent, informed or otherwise, is patently criminal (by the current medical requirements of informed consent). But clearly, the Judeo cultural exception is in force here, and should not be. This aspect of both Jewish and Islamic religious “freedom” should be prohibited.

    In contrast, the Muslim practice, culturally enforced and performed without true consent on young Muslim women, is seen in the Muslim-hating West as criminal barbarism. (I agree, but not out of “Muslim-hate”.)

    By the way, Muslim men, per Islamic culture, are also circumcised, but in Islam, this takes place in young adulthood not infancy, though still arguably under culturally coercive conditions.

    Finally, the term “mutilation” is severely prejudicial, billions have been circumcised, men and women, to no apparent ill effect. (Caveat: Not so with clitorectomy, and some men with small penises complain that circumcision played a role in their diminished endowment.) As Liz says: “They have sex, they reproduce.” But bottom line, absent personal choice, informed consent, and freedom from any sort of coercion, the practice should be deemed unacceptable.

    A brief note in reply. Male circumcision is not nearly as terrible as female genital mutilation, for the reasons you describe. However, it can result in diminished sensitivity and consequently a deleterious effect on sexual relations.

    This is not only a matter of male pleasure, but also of a man’s ability to participate in subtleties of intercourse with women. To put it bluntly, sex is better for both partners if the man’s glans has been protected by its sheath so that all its nerve endings are in proper working order: He can better sense and respond to what is going on.

    There are no health reasons to cut off the skin that nature put there. Compared to women’s genitals, with all their folds and moist areas, that part of a man is simple and easy to keep clean; it is much less prone to infection than what women have.

    So this researcher concluded that when you cut off sensory flesh, possibly new nerves develop nearby to compensate. Is this true? I don’t know.

    Mutilation defined: “the infliction of serious damage on something”. “Damage” defined: “physical harm caused to something in such a way as to impair its value, usefulness, or normal function”.

    Since, as Liz notes, those men and women who have been “circumcised” still have sex and reproduce, where then is the impaired function implied by the term mutilation? Thus circumcision, described non-prejudicially, could be seen simply as a traditional religious practice taking the form of benign body modification.

    Excluding clitorectomy, which is indeed mutilation, as it impairs the experience of sexual pleasure by the woman.

    Totally agree. Male circumcision should be strongly discouraged, despite the propaganda from certain (((doctors))) that it decreases the risk of HIV infection. The Gates Foundation bought this nonsense and has been promoting the practice in Africa. Not that it’s in any way our problem, but African men will likely view it as a magic talisman and be even less likely to use condoms.
    As for female circumcision, we need to adopt a zero-tolerance policy now before such barbarism achieves acceptance in the West. BTW, it’s usually the women who are often the most insistent that their daughters are mutilated.

    Doing a circumcision on a baby, who doesn’t understand what the hell is going on during the cutting + the pain of the 10+ day long healing period, is much worse. The brain is encoded with all that pain – pain on the sex organ, which is designed to experience great pleasure. Think for a moment how that fkucs up your mind, later in life – might it be related to the hating of women? Some people think so, though I have no opinion one way or another. Apparently the baby/man in the back of his mind “remembers” the suffering; he conceptualizes the mother as responsible even if she tried to stop the circ from being done. Who hates women the most? I’d say it’s Mooselimbs. Who is most neurotic in their relationships with their mothers? Jews. Who has an almost 100% circ rate? Those 2 bunches.

    An adult male wanting a circumcision has 3 things the baby does not: a desire for the operation; pain killers, as much as he wants, during and after; and a belief that he is somehow better off for having no foreskin.

    I met a man from South Asia, but living here now, whose doctor talked him into getting a circumcision not out of any pathology but because it “would prevent any disease in the future”. Well, was he ever displeased – sex was dull and unenjoyable compared to when he was genitally normal. He was desperate for some sort of solution.

    American Indians are legally the citizens of both their tribe and the United States. They have dual citizenship.

    The European settlers did not kill off the American Indian, at least not intentionally. The diseases inadvertently introduced by the settlers killed off most of the Amerinds. Some tribes were never conquered militarily. The Georgia state militia never came close to winning a single battle with the Cherokee, and even federal troops could usually do no better than fight them to a draw. The Cherokee were simply squeezed out by the settlers’ overwhelming numbers. The Comanche, some of the best light cavalry in world history, were only brought to heel after buffalo hunters destroyed the buffalo herds the tribe depended on.

    The defeat of the British in the War for Independence was due primarily to massive aid from France. Without the French, we’d be speaking English today. Oh, wait …

    Very good question, The Kid. Let’s just lump Canada in with America, financially, so I’ll think of those as the places (along with W. Europe) where ex-pats COME FROM to go to live cheap on their dollars, looneys, euros, etc. I do think most economies will tank in concert, yes. However, in a place like Mexico, C. and S. America, Vietnam, Thailand, Philippines, etc. the local currency does not have the HUGE mark-up that the dollar does due to it’s being the “reserve currency”*.

    Because it’s still the reserve currency (for now), the US dollar is inherently not nearly worth as much as it’s viewed to be. When things get real, the other cheap currencies, Pesos, etc., will still hold the limited value. Social Security checks denominated in dollars, however, will lose a whole lot of buying power.

    As to your 2nd question, I sort of answered that already. By REAL MONEY, I mean gold and silver, but any real assets like houses, land, equipment, etc. would keep their value. In parts of the 3rd world, you don’t know about the land (see S. Africa – yes, that is a particular racism/genocide story), as anywhere you are considered a foreigner and the government is not the atypical long-ago American Constitutional Republic, some people may come and just take all your shit.

The Americans move out farther away for some space, and possibly commute in for some jobs.

    Internal motivation requires a perceived personal benefit for any activity. Even apparent altruism is not without at least the emotional “feel good about yourself” effect.

    External motivation, fear of the pain of the lash, fear of ostracism, all such are sourced in the question of “what’s in it for me” .

    LOL! Why would I need to shave “down there”? No, I never have. I’m late middle aged, post-menopause, and it’s starting to thin out a tad and that’s going to happen to you, too.

    Subconscious means you can’t access something directly, the anger or other strong emotion is formless, not developed – but it is affecting your life one way or another.

    And, by the way, in what way have you tried to dig up any memories of infancy? I don’t know how this would be done. I know of one man to whom this happened spontaneously, without effort, and I guess that is what got me kind of interested in condemning all undesired genital cutting. Sexual abuse of babies and small children is also driven down to the point where they don’t even remember what happened, but one fine day they realize something is wrong with them that they can’t put their finger on.

    Selling crystal meth legally in 7-11 is not going to improve a city.

    Don’t assume. Legalization always means regulation. Regulation means you can find out where the money goes. Everyone picks their own poison — alcohol hasn’t improved civilization much, either. Drug problems are typically the topside-visible effects of economic oppression.

    Women would still pedal ass and you’d have a bunch of hookers like drug areas have now.

    That word is “peddle”. However, in keeping with your Chinese nationalism, allow me “Confucius say ‘Teenage girl with bicycle pedal ass all over town.’”

    MICHIGAN NATIONAL GUARD RESERVES

    My Dad was a former Combat Medic in Vietnam (Paid for his PHd) who told me I’d be “F*CKED” if I went into the army and urged me to drop out of the ROTC program. He lost 6 years of his life to the army and was bitter about it.

    I listened.

    HOMELESS

    I lived in the college dormitories of Central Michigan University and off-campus for a total of 4 years from 1993 when I was 19 to 1998 when I turned 24.

    Following that I moved to Phoenix for an entry-level job because my brother was finishing his own degree at Arizona State. After getting on my feet I moved into an “Efficiency Apartment Complex” and this was the worst experience of my life. It was full of Cholos, Tweakers and even a black pimp. So I moved in with a couple of other young guys into a three-room condo also in their early 20′s. This was typical bachelor pig apartment with girls coming and going and beer cans everywhere etc.

    A high school buddy got me a job in Dubai and I shared rather dingy high-rise flat with him and his wife for years.

    I moved to Canada for two years and got a graduate degree in Ontario. I met a French-Canadian female chef who was seven years older than I was and we had a two-year relationship. When it ended, I moved back to Dubai.

    After Dubai I was 36 and moved to the Philippines because I had contacts there. Lots of white men who’d spent their working lives in Dubai were moving to Philippines because you could live cheap.

    My friend and I opened a girly bar. It was a business I hated. The hours. The shakedowns by corrupt cops. The girls getting STD’s. I sold him my share and moved out of his bungalow into my own.

    Finally, I moved to another Asian country and married a Thai-Chinese divorce and built a house for $20,000.

After expats finally quit ranting about the racism of border control and whites wanting to be a majority, I remark that they must hate the locals.

    “Don’t be so sure”

    You obviously were not in the Southwest in the 1990′s at the height of the Meth Epidemic when the rednecks and lower-middle-class whites were out of their gourds on crystal meth.

    One sad story was a sweet Irish-American woman of 46 whose son had stolen her Photocopy machine. She was a nurse. Nice woman. Her son would just stop by and rob her blind.

    Another tweaker that REALLY scared me was Jake, who was homeless but hung around my apartment complex. He tried to move into my apartment with me because I lived alone. Of course I refused. Didn’t know the kid. He was about 19 and had a bunch of reform school Aryan tattoos. After that, he would just follow me everywhere with a big mindless grin on his face.

    After I moved out of the apartment complex and my unit was empty, he broke through the window to get in and injured himself looking for a place to stay.

    Van Buren was known as the Blvd. of Blowjobs in Phoenix. My roommate Mike worked at Motorola and he thought it was funny to turn his lights off and prowl behind the walls of motel and apartment parking lots where men would get blown in public and some guy’s bare butt was visible 20 yards away as a street whore knelt in front of him.

    I went with him once he blared his horn at some rough-looking trucker whose pants fell to his ankles he jumped in the air at the sound of Mike’s pickup truck horn and the woman kneeling in front of him fell back with her shirt open kneeling on the asphalt.

    “Go! Go!” I told Mike as he peeled out with the angry guy pulling his pants up and looking for a brick or rock to throw.

    I heard other stories of course. One female pet shop manager I knew had to deliver a baby Pitbull to a seedy apartment on Van Buren and when she arrived with the pub and climbed the stairs a man was having anal sex with a black crack whore on the landing against the wall.

    Marijuana has always been more or less tolerated on campus and of course most of us smoked in college. But legalizing hard drugs is different. It might reduce violence in Mexico but would not improved the US much.

    ECONOMIC COLLAPSE

    Flint has gotten the point where people have to drink toxic water. The government has more or less told them it does not give a shit.

    Countries like Australia or Switzerland have a sort of concern for standard of living overall but the US doesn’t and furthermore minimum wage is ridiculously low.

    Also, like Brazil, the US is comprised of various races and some are better at functioning economically than others. A Portuguese Jewish businessman or German-Brazilian engineer just DOESN’T GIVE A SHIT about the Mestizo-Black poor masses. There is not even a pretense that they do.

    Similarly, whites don’t really care that much about black poverty in the rust belt post-industrial cities. If blacks cannot leave that is their problem. I don’t think that middle-class whites care that much about the poor rural whites. They just don’t.

    Whereas in Australia or Canada there is more of a feeling that there has to be some basic universal standard of living.

    Hispanics in the US are immune to incredible levels of squalor and violence. Miami is full of rich Cuban whites who happily weather the Colombian cocaine cowboys, Miami black riots, Hatian boat people.

    My experience in Asia is that the locals don’t even CARE about expats. Not one bit. The Japanese are the most self-absorbed people on earth and could not care a whit what a white guy is doing or why.

    Chinese are about the same. Seeing a foreigner for them is like seeing a cat at a dumpster.

    Same is true in Southeast Asia except there is a bit of an understanding that these whites contribute something to the economy and many of them just want to get laid.

    I’ve talked to Asian middle-class women (I don’t go to bars or associate with the poor prostitutes) and they laugh at how horny white men who are 60 or 70 years old. They find it a bit funny. But they are not offended by it.

    Asians don’t care.

    Philippines is basically a Beanbag country in Asia. The people are culturally and to some extent genetically Hispanic. The ruling elite of the Philippines are mestizos descended from the Spanish colonists so they have some antipathy because the US defeated Spain and colonized the Philippines.

    Chinese-Filipinos to some extent see other foreigners as competitors in business. This has led to vicious brawls with Koreans, who are now the johnny-come-lately investors and business people in the Philippines.

    But PLEASE DON’T TELL ME that Asians are anywhere near as hostile to you as white man that a Beaner or a Porch would be in your nearest hometown barrio or ghetto.

    Japanese teenagers and youth are not going to STOMP YOU TO DEATH because you took a wrong turn and ended up in their hood.

    Once in a blue moon Asian men rape some slutty white stewardess out drunk on her free night off or a Scandinavian tourist dressed like a whore at 11 PM staggering around the tourist center of town but this is rare. Much more often the rape is that of a black GI near a base and the victim is some 10 year old Okinawan girl.

    A YOUNGER PERSPECTIVE

    Most of the expats are retirees or older guys from a middle-class or upper middle-class background who just came to Asia to get laid.

    If you are my age and from modest (I would not say poor) background you don’t complain about living in Asia or the populace. They are better than on a street with a Section 8 around the corner or some city that is rapidly becoming a barrio.

    Also Americans are not complaining about Italian illegal immigrants in some Chicago pizza joint working under-the-table or Filipino janitors with dubious work visas or even some Russian high-class hooker whose working illegally as a call girl in Vegas.

    They’re complaining about the wild Red Indians from Mexico who jungle primitivism into the US.

    If you are working middle class white like me who managed to get out of the rust belt young and single who spent his working life overseas far away from outbursts by 250 pound females bus passengers or freakouts at Detroit KFC’s or roving Cholos at a Southwest bus stop you are just glad to be out.d

If you’d stayed and counted on Social Security you might have found, as I did, that it was diminished by a little sleight of hand called the Windfall Profits Exclusion Act. If you’d worked two jobs so you’d have another retirement income, whatever its size, you wouldn’t get the SS as promised. Just wouldn’t be fair, the Congressional Bill said. You only worked that SS job for the extra money, anyway, and getting the deal would be a “windfall profit.”

I’m saying that your past experience made you tough and inventive enough to survive … I’m guessing in Asia … and that’s something a lot of people wouldn’t do.

    The worst beating I heard of was an American fat oaf-a professional gambler-who mouthed off to some Filipino “shabu” (Meth) addicts in a girly bar parking lot in Cebu over a parking space and was hospitalized as a result.

    An American I knew in Cebu mouthed off to some Korean drunks who chased him a full half kilometer into A POLICE STATION AND BEAT HIM UP INSIDE THE POLICE STATION FLOOR IN FRONT OF THE FILIPINO POLICE!

    Chinese don’t really care about foreigners. We’re like cats around a dumpster. Instances of Chinese beating up white businessmen are rare.

    Whites are just not very important to Chinese or Asians.

British troops roamed pretty much at will through the northeast, while never suffering a significant defeat anything close to those suffered after venturing south for what they assumed would be a cakewalk. Minus the defeats suffered at the hands of Southerners, along with assistance from France, England had no reason to ever agree to surrender terms of any description.

    J.S.,

    Funny story about the guy being whipped in the police station, international in scope, huh? I think Koreans are far more easily provoked, and tougher, than Chinese. And Flips just like watching a fight, chickens, people, doesn’t matter.

    I agree about Americans in China, though the cat and dumpster comparison wouldn’t be my choice. The only laowai beating I know of happened about 12 years ago and involved an Englishman, a huckster I knew of, who drank all night in a village bar then came up quite short of paying his bill. The girls slapped hell out of him. he deserved it.

    Here are 2 cop stories from Guangdong, both over 10 years old and both involving me accompanying a Chinese friend who needed paperwork done at the police station. First, in Shekou, Shenzhen at a small station a cop walked in carrying a new stick, the kind that lengthens and locks when you give it a hard swing. He demonstrated how it worked and when I asked to hold it and try it out, the guy hesitated a moment before handing it over to me. He wasn’t armed in any other way and gave me, a stranger and foreigner, his only weapon. He showed me how it worked, I tried it out, thanked him and returned it. He told my friend (in Chinese) where the police bought that sort of thing and I went there and bought half a dozen. They were far cheaper that way. I took them to friends in the US.

    Second story involves a hot as hell afternoon in Danshui, where I counted 14 uniformed cops hanging out behind the counter, talking and smoking cigarettes. My friend and I were the only people there for any kind of business and these lounging officers were in excess of the regular staff. I wondered why they weren’t out on patrol and asked her why in the world there were so many cops there at 4:30 in the afternoon. She looked at me like I was an idiot and answered, “Because this is the police station.” I clarified my point, asking why they were inside the station. It still made no sense to her, as her answer was, “Because it’s hot outside.”

    That was all a while back, but in many ways things haven’t changed a lot.

    I find little animosity towards foreigners over here in Asia if you don’t come across as a bum. Whether they like you being in their country is a different matter. They would not tolerate a massive invasion of foreigners, whether low class moochers or higher class competition like in the US. They mainly want to make money off you. Since they aren’t being displaced by foreigners like in the US, they sometimes are happy to see people who like their country (I imagine Japan is a different story). I have worked in 2 countries in Asia, spent time in others – such as the Philippines and Vietnam – and live in a third.

    Chunks of Eastern Asia is a man’s world and many don’t mind foreign men grabbing some of their women, in my experience, because most men are having affairs already with multiple women. Asian women over 35 are thrilled often by foreign men because Asian men won’t date them, especially if the woman has a kid.

    The American was a drunk named Clinton Macbeth who would get belligerent when he was drunk and often into fights. He’d hit a ladyboy for hitting on him and would argue with security guards.

    He’d served in the army in the Philippines 25 years earlier and thought that being an American mattered in Cebu (Which it no longer does) and when he mouthed off to the Koreans walking past a beach resort they just ran after him.

    Clinton would later say to me that the Filipino duty Sergeant in the police station had his head down asleep as the Koreans kicked him on the police station floor in the balls until his screams woke the Filipino cop up.

    The Koreans then burst back out the front door of the police station as Clinton was shouting in pain in the fetal position on the floor.

    “Mark the Shark” was an American loan shark who was married to a Chinese-Filipino gambling addict named Suzette and he loaned money to Chinese-Filipino gambling addicts.

    The Chinese-Filipino community was so tired of their antics and seeing their sons or nephews Ma-Jong addictions being preyed upon by a merciless “Juice Lender” (White slang for a squeezing the borrower with interest rates) that they just beat the complete hell out of Mark and chased him out of town.

    One German man named Enner was handcuffed to his dick by his Filipino police officer wife for having affairs-marrying a female who is a cop in a corrupt country is iffy.

    Korean women are known-offensively-as Yellow Cabs and some white men go into low Korean bars to pick them up, which is fairly easy. But Korean men love to fight in bars with just about anybody and it is easy to get into a fight doing this.

    Enner was the funniest story I ever heard…

    He was married to a hot but corrupt and nasty female Filipino police officer. He’d been having an affair with a Filipino woman in Germany and somehow this news got back to the Philippines.

    His wife handcuffed him to his own penis.

    She refused to hand over the key and he had to go to the hospital and they had to use a blowtorch to cut through the steel right next to his testicles.

    Generally though, white men really are not much of a bother to Asians. They don’t want trouble with the cops or with locals so they just keep low profiles.

    Philippines is crime-ridden country because for whatever reason meth took off there in a way it never did in the rest of Asia and because the Philippines is a poor country with such high unemployment junkies have no choice but to go after foreigners in robberies.

    This is common enough.

    The rest of Asia has a low crime rate compared to the Philippines.

    I don’t what it is about the Philippines. The people just seem to generally have a shifty and untrustworthy character. Even nice people become complete shitbags on meth so of course Filipinos who are liars and thieves to begin with really become completely awful on meth.

    The Philippines is not really Asia. It is Latin America IN Asia. Its more like Guatemala than like Beijing.

    Also the real dregs of the West go to the Philippines because it is cheap and so corrupt that you can buy your way out of any scrape for $200.

    East Asia is actually more orderly and pleasant than most of the United States. Much is made about rural China but of course rural people everywhere in the world are backward.

    It is ASIANS who are the victims of bat-shit crazy misfortune in the United States because of passing by criminals or raving lunatics.

    The Chinese think they have a drug problem, but I haven’t seen much evidence of it, well, compared to the vast horde of toothless cranksters back home. Here are a couple stories of drugs in China.

    There’s a village in southern Guangdong, forgot the name just now, notorious for crime. 5 or 6 years back the government busted pretty much the whole town. They were cooking crank up and down main street. Fixin’s were bagged up and leaning against the sides of the buildings. They got tons. Now, we didn’t hear about it in Guangdong. I read about this in the Sacramento Bee on a visit back there. I showed it to my wife and she told me about her friend who got off a bus there and before reaching another bus across the street had her purse snatched. Could happen anywhere, but it didn’t.

    I’ve known a few, not many, Filipino women in Guangdong. One, who commuted between Cebu and China, appeared fond of heroin, maybe more. Her friend, being short of money, was invited to do business. Maybe she ingested the stuff in condoms, but she was busted coming in at Shenzhen airport, tried, convicted and executed, a 30 day process. I heard about this when another Filipino called with the news, about a month after the arrest. Another, a registered nurse, moved from mainland to Macau where she told me she was studying medicine, but lied and was working out of a bar. This lady told me of her cousin, who had been arrested when a dog sniffed out her heroin laden luggage at the Hong Kong airport. Maybe it was crank, who knows, but lucky for her it was in lenient Hong Kong, where she only got life in prison, not a bullet in the back of the head. Of course, they get a 30 period of appeal before execution, but the Chinese don’t mess around with that.

    These are gory stories, not funny like Enner getting handcuffs blowtorched off his privates.

    FOREIGN MORONS IN THE PHILIPPINES

    Air Force John was 60 when he came to the Philippines and a career officer in communications and intelligence. Ramrod straight guy. But he started bar fining girls. One night when he was totally drunk a bar girl got him to try Ice and he was hooked through the bag. By the time I met him, he was a total mad tweaker at the age of 64. His pension was $4000 a month and crystal meth is $10 a hit in the Philippines and he would be so stone-broke he’d be hitting me up for a loan to buy rice. You can imagine how high he was when meth is $20 a gram and he is smoking up his entire pension.

    John got this idea that he’d seen the ghost of a Japanese soldier in his compound yard and that this soldier had buried World War II treasure. So he started he hired some Filipinos and began to dig. He dug a 50 foot hole in his yard. He never found gold.

    Then there was Leighton. He had met a Filipino woman online and decided to marry her. So he flew to the Philippines and bought her a house for $30,000. Problem was she was already married so when he went inside her husband was on the couch drinking a beer.

    The house was in her name. The cops came and removed him from the property when he made a scene.

    But here was the problem. He was broke. He could no longer afford to live in the US. He’d sold the farm. So he stayed in the Philippines. He cursed the place every day and the people, but the exchange rate was good because he was now broke. Filipinos actually just laughed at him.

    …I knew many more stories like that but I won’t bore you. Suffice to say I was wiser when I left.

    LOL – Have you been to Brazil and watch their TV show where Brazilians plan to enter the USA illegally? I did! And what a hoot that show is! Just please keep your wallet and phone secure so no one steals it if you are watching the show in a restaurant sitting on a barstool or tries to kidnap you on the short walk back to the hotel. My Portuguese is terrible, but supposedly the TV show is an uplifting comedy that must be watched if you are there like I was (several times). Not sure if it is still on the telly these days.

    BTW, I’ve have and had passports with plenty of extra pages and stamps on every page with visits to places like Brazil (after getting 200+ visas over 30 years). I wouldn’t want to enter Brazil illegally like the 10+ thousands of Brazilians illegally entering the USA every year. I just want to be legal in Brazil when I get robbed again or have another kidnapping attempt in broad daylight. You know, I feel I gotta contribute more to that Brazilian corruption every time I go back there!

    I found Colombia to be wonderful with especially lovely, highly intelligent women. However, I’ve travelled throughout Mexico, El Salvador, Honduras, Venezuela, Panama et. al. – no gracias.

    Philippines is also the only Catholic country in Asia and, consequently, acts more like your typical Catholic country than an Asian one: crime, corruption that doesn’t trickle down, and inefficiency, but more romantic with people who focusing on enjoying the present and not delayed gratification

    An Italian woman I met who lives in Asia told me that Italians are always wondering why they are so much more inefficient than Germans and why the South of Italy is so much more corrupt than the North. She said that Italians are starting to feel it has to do with confession. Do whatever you want, confess your sins then start again

    Jeff Stryker,

    Good stories, these, amusing and truthful.

    About a dozen years ago, when I first arrived in Guangdong, a big Shell Oil project had just concluded and the high-on-the-hog foreigners, engineers, had all but left. The ones remaining tended to be old, but new fathers married to Chinese women, or else ne’er-do-well drunks who had no other place to be. One who straddled both categories was a little Irish leprechaun who drank all my scotch one night, then pleaded to be driven home in his car. I did that once, in the wee small hours, and walked part of the way home before catching a cab. The leprechaun had made big money and bought his young wife a penthouse that was pricey then and later worth a bundle. Everything was in her name. Eventually, she kicked him out and kept all the keys, understandably. He was so bad he embarrassed the few friends he had, who were mostly drunks themselves. It must be hard to be married to a death wish, especially a foreign one you can’t really talk to.

    Another guy, also an engineer who knew the leprechaun, bragged to me about the money he had made in Iraq during the first years of that war. He didn’t want the US government to know he owned 5 properties in China, as that would reduce his $2,000 a month social security retirement. I tried hard to recall my Stoicism I-A lectures, because I had recently learned that the Windfall Profits SS Law cut my own SS down to $133 a month. The guy moved his young family back to the States and bought a very nice condo in a ritzy place where rich stars live, and his wife had 1 or 2 more kids. Serves him right.

    I never made it to Philippines, having passed on the opportunity to join the Navy with my brother during Viet Nam and, later, to go there to meet my friend’s wife’s sister, during piece time. But I have a story for you about Philippines, still. My oldest and, really, only foreigner friend in China is a man I met the first week I was here. He’s a sterling guy, brilliant, loyal, who has become a business tycoon in the time I’ve known him. Back about 10 years ago he told me he had a friend who was a member of the Marcos family. You remember Imelda, Queen of Shoes? Well, this fellow had shown my friend photographs of helicopters lifting caches of gold by cable out of ground holes dug in Philippine jungles. At least one photo showed, with unmistakable clarity, a man in shirt and tie directing the flight of the helicopters. The man was George H. W. Bush, back when he was Director of the CIA. That’s my only Philippine story — hearsay, but credible — and disgusting.

    Thanks for the exchange. Let’s take America back.

    Some professional treasure-hunters find gold here and there but Marcos extracted most of it in the seventies. The problem is smuggling it out.

    One Canadian found a kilo and was busted in the Davao airport in Southern Philippines at customs. Needless to say it was repossessed by Philippines customs.

    I’m too old to really fight in the road with Antifa or BLM or even want to return to the US. Michigan is not very appealing and one reason is the weather alone.

    I wonder if mass stupidity is cyclic at Unz. For awhile there, reasoned, fact-based discussion held the upper hand. Lately, the air is thick with Wackadoodle insanity, the shouting of “commie” and “jew” (and “commie jew” ;-)), tales of economic doom predicted by one loony pundit or another, earsplitting shrieks of “conspiracy”, “commie conspiracy”, and “commie jew conspiracy”.

    ie: AIPAC, I would use the AIPAC headquarters for fire drills, first setting fire to it then dousing it with accelerants. If anyone was inside….too bad.
    As for all those treasonous half witted miscreants in congress who signed the loyalty oath to Pisrael, I believe the charge of treason could and should be applied to each and every one. The Constitution distinctly spells out what treason is. There are plenty of lamp posts and hemp rope to go around for every one.
    And don’t forget how many cars we could sell in Russia. with they way they drive, they could even keep Fiat Chrysler afloat for at least another century or until some enterprising Americans with years of racing(professionally) move in and set up driver’s training schools…….a great idea for anyone who could do so. Think of the money made and Putin would make them a national hero.
    By the way I would invite Putin to America and take him around to some great places: Traverse City, Mi. and surrounding area.
    Hell, I’d even BBQ some ribs and chicken for him.
