Mr. Neva,

Daniel Pipes commented that he wasn't sure if your comment was serious or a send-up on the loony left.

I imagine you are most likely a left-over from Timothy Leary days ...!

Have you ever been to a third-world country? I spent some time in Guatemala when I was married to my ex-husband, who was born and raised there. I went to Pansos (where the only electricity is from one gasoline-powered generator; the only one in that town), Antigua (where assault-rifle carrying military strolled among vendors in the town square), Coban (where one restaurant we dined in was strategically located above a river; that way, when you used the restaurant's commode, gravity aided in the restaurant's plumbing), and Guatemala City (where television was interupted every few hours so that the newly elected "Democratic" President could spout his propaganda.

Back then, '91, Guatemala's President was warning of the evils of Cable T.V. I'll never forget the enraptured expression on my in-laws' faces as they viewed him. Also, in the capitol of Guatemala, electricity went out every day. The citizens all boiled water before they risked drinking it).

I could go on, but I think you get the picture.

People who live in the U.S. and don't appreciate the fantastic freedoms and standard of living that are un-equaled throughout the world are being replaced by immigrants who do.

I would like to ask you a question, Mr. Richard Neva. If living in America is a "living hell" as you put it, then why is it that more people clammor to come here rather than to any other country?

You state, "We deserve a good whipping". I say, people like you deserve a big kick in the "culo". -JS
