    Oh, so Big was expecting encouragement? I did not know that he normally get encouragement with his anti-American posts.

    I am a superintendent for a home building company and I hear this a lot. It is not true, at least as far as the trades and contracting is concerned. Americans have always done these jobs (and taken pride in it too). All the Mexicans did was lower the wages by undercutting the white contracters. They would give far less superior work but it was cheap and fast. White contracters just couldn't compete.

    What do people think?
    I think you putting your ridiculous ramblings on PAPER would be a welcome releief to this MB's readers and bandwith.

    I also think you'd have zero chance of getting it published

    Who cares if it gets published? The process of putting your thoughts on paper and something you can call a book is a blessing in itself.

    What you are talking about is a philosophical presentation.

    Do it and then get it vetted by your fellow philosophers on here.

    OC,
    Good point about capitalism ruining the Olympics. I might add to that that communism did its fair share also (professional athletics).

    Big,
    You have already written several books - you just haven't put them on paper (forums).

    I think you will find that Russians have written about their American experience already.

    Also one of my assistants, back in the day, was a Russian Jew, who would tell me about his experiences. They didn't exactly parallel yours. He now works with helping Russian/Jewish immigrants settle in the USA. I can't remember the name of the organization though.

    Illegal doping by athletes is hardly confined to USA athletes.

    You might be underestimating how basketball is taking hold in China.

    Agree with consensus about what the olympics have become.

    Big reminds me of Ignatius J. Reilly scibbling on his Big Chief writing tablets, I wonder if he has some of Ignatius's other fixations? How's the valve Big?
