It can happen here

Steven D has a strong commentery at My Left Wing: Forever War and The New American Police State is a chilling observation of what's happening here.

I'm off to Kiwi Link today, an all-day conference for New Zealand Travel Specialists. I'd consider moving there in a heartbeat.

I've heard it's so beautiful there, Jood. Isn't it the place where a lot of well-off people are moving to?

Hi Alicia -- Yes, a lot of well-off Americans are moving to New Zealand; Costa Rica too; also Puerto Vallarta.

There's one couple who own two lodges in New Zealand who come in for our conference each year -- they're great people, and I send a lot of clients to them (partly because their political leanings are so left wing, also because their lodges are fantastic). Anyway, they told me tonight that this very right wing religious wing-nut almost won the recent election -- fortunately did not.

Long day, I am toast.
