I don't think we can survive a constitutional convention.

Why not? Commerce will continue without abortions, same-sex marriage, gun control or immigration.

It ain't like they're gonna just declare biblical law and be done with it. Actually...it ain't like they're ever gonna do anything because if republicans can be said to be good at anything then it would be DOING NOTHING.

A friend of mine moved to Turkey and is loving it there. It appears the government is pretty lax about immigration and there were NO requirements for the three dogs she smuggled out of the US. The Turkish government is sh*tty, everybody knows the government is sh*tty and there's nothing they can do about it so they don't let it bother them.

It's an attitude that Americans would be well advised to take.

Church membership is down below 50% and those claiming Christian status continues to fall as well. I suspect that the abortion thing is not helping their numbers as well. All in all religion is taking hits every year.

I have noticed that there a number of foreign groups that have set up home in China which was kinda interesting and I have a number of friends who have moved to Mexico, over the years and have stayed for the long haul and are quite happy there. My wife tends to like northern Europe or Iceland (quite possibly the most expensive place in the entire world!)
