Fleeing America Redux 4

image: nothing to lose

“The most dangerous man, to any government, is the man who is able to think things out for himself… Almost inevitably, he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane and intolerable.”

“The notion that a radical is one who hates his country is naive and usually idiotic.  He is, more likely, one who likes his country more than the rest of us, and is thus more disturbed than the rest of us when he sees it debauched.  He is not a bad citizen turning to crime; he is a good citizen driven to despair.”
- H.L. Mencken

“The most dangerous creation of any society is the man who has nothing to lose.”
- James Baldwin

Did you see 60 MINUTES LAST WEEK ?

KEVIN MALLORY was a down on his luck former clandestine case officer for the CIA when he was approached by a man the Department of Justice believes was a Chinese spy. Officials say Mallory was a prime target for recruitment. He was out of work, three months behind on his mortgage, and thousands of dollars in debt. But as we first reported in December and as the Chinese would discover, Kevin Mallory wasn’t exactly James Bond. The Department of Justice agreed to show us how they caught Mr. Mallory and why they believe his recruitment by China is part of a massive clandestine campaign to steal not just national security secrets from the U.S. government, but industrial and technological secrets from American companies.

They found him on LinkedIn.

I’ve been ASKING MYSELF for years what I would do if a headhunter from China offered me a job.

If given a choice - living IN A TENT under some bridge, shunned like a diseased leper by society and government just for being UNLUCKY - or invited to live in another country with renewed hopes of a happy RETIREMENT - would you move?

If the question were as simple as that - who wouldn’t?

People living in Scandanavian countries are the HAPPIEST ON EARTH.

What if a foreign headhunter asks you to betray your country in return for a life of luxury where he lives?

Although I feel BETRAYED since writing President Obama and VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN about the LONG-TERM UNEMPLOYED a few years ago, I don’t think I’d ever sell out my country.

Why?

I’ve never been more horrified by what IT’S BECOME and WHAT I’VE BECOME, or more frightened of winding up hungry and homeless. 

DESPERATE people do desperate things, and people who have nothing, have nothing to loose.

Imagine now you’re behind on your mortgage. Your family, FRIENDS and society - all left you to ROT AND DIE while calling you a LAZY BUM for not having a job.

My tears can fill an ocean from all the crying I’ve done.

In walks Mr Li Hope - the headhunter from our political enemy. All he wants in return for helping you get your life back are the THINGS YOU LEARNED working years for the telephone company.

And maybe a little more.

He’s offering a paid move and generous signon bonus.
