Immigrants …

This is too good. Found on Facebook. Text version first since the image is not very sharp:

Your car is German. Your vodka is Russian. Your pizza is Italian. Your kebab is Turkish. Your democracy is Greek. Your coffee is Brazilian. Your movies are American. Your tea is Tamil. Your shirt is Indian. Your oil is Saudi Arabian. Your electronics are Chinese. Your numbers Arabic, your letters Latin. And you complain that your neighbor is an immigrant? Pull yourself together.

    Numbers aren’t Arabic. Our number system was invented in India. The Arabs only transferred it to Europe. At best it could be thought of as “Hindu-Arabic” numbers.

    Looking at your funny comic of the vegan people reminds me of earlier times. When you look at photos from the 20’s thru 40’s you don’t see many overweight people. Is it that we are not getting enough exercise or is it the diet? I thinks perhaps it may be both….fast food did not exist then….

    One of the biggest thefts of Intellectual Property, about 150 years ago, was stealing tea plants and the process of cultivating and drying the leaves by the British.

    I like to point of this Facebook post. It brings home the point of immigration / migration / trading. Most nations in the world have been trading for hundreds of years. In the case of India & China, much longer.

    Acura TLX PMC Edition (~$50,000) limited production
    Of course the Mustang & Camaro performance cars.
    you get the idea – I may have mentioned before – sorry if duplicate.

    Thanks for all your hard work and that of your writers & staff.
