Eviction 2010 occurred and Conservatives got a little of our power back. Nevertheless America remains under the oppressive Obama regime. Soaring debt, out of control taxation euphemistically called “investment,” a falling currency, hidden inflation, and lack of jobs are the proof. My warning to the Egyptians citizens is be careful what you wish for.
The U.S. version of the overthrow of Mubarak began in 2002. In that year Liberals all over America decided that George W. Bush was an evil Republican capitalist and war monger, so Liberals overthrew the U.S. government, replacing it with a Pelosi-led Congress. The continuation of the coup happened in 2008 when those same Liberals selected America’s current White House occupant, basically on his ability to give speeches and his non-threatening light-skin color. Because of this selection, America suffers worse economically, and we are the least safe period in modern American history.
Egypt finds itself in a very precarious situation.
Aside from getting a funny book that will give you titanium biceps when pummeling the Left, you will be supporting what I do. Check it out here.
A lesson exists for Egypt in their own region of the world. The Middle East has essentially been off limits for most Americans and European visitors, considered very unsafe for decades. The only place either group can feel relative safety is in the more westernized areas of the Middle East, like the U.A.E. and Dubai. The Arab leaders of these nations seem to understand their need to interact with Infidels. But if you want to build manmade islands and the most innovative hotels, and resorts, and cities, it would be ashamed to only have a bunch of bass-ackward Pashtun tribesmen to whom to show it all off.
The Arabs really want to thumb their noses at the non-Muslim world by showcasing where our money has gone. So while America debates whether or not we are a country of racist, homophobic, Islamaphobes, the Arabs just keep jacking up the price of oil, and laughing all the way to the bank.
As for Egypt, for much of the last century it was the Muslim jewel, built on an economy of oil, agriculture, and tourism. Egyptian innovation and Egypt’s relative stability is much the reason for its prominence in the world. Considering the geographical location of Egypt, maintaining stability was no short order.
Egypt is bordered by the Mediterranean Sea to the north, the Gaza Strip and Israel to the northeast, the Red Sea to the east, Sudan to the south and Libya to the west. Tumultuous political hotbeds in three directions, yet Egypt for decades managed for the most part to stay above the fray. Who knows what the future holds?
Egypt contains within its borders The Great Pyramids of Giza, one of the original Seven Wonders of the World. Scientists still marvel at the technology it took to build the pyramids, and countless other technological and archeological marvels like the Nile River, the Sphinx , the ancient ruins of Memphis and Karnak, to name a few.
American pop culture celebrates Egypt in many ways, from movies like Cleopatra to Steve Martin’s zany homage to King Tut and Michael Jackson’s hit song Remember the Time. I’m not sure if Egypt’s modern splendor will continue to rival that of its glorious past.
Tourism and what is known as The Red Sea Riviera are responsible for about 12% of Egypt’s employment. That’s certainly in danger. How much tourism do you think Iran gets?
If it weren’t for oil, how would most of the Middle East survive? Imagine a world where we didn’t need the oil produced in the Middle East. Muslims would be converting to Christianity in droves.
After Mubarak’s departure and the leader of the military junta told Egyptian revelers to stay away from Tarhiz Square and to get back to work. At least 12% of those people were likely wondering, “Go back to work to what?!”
What would Egypt be without tourism or a market for their cotton? We may soon know.
Despite the takeovers that occurred in America in 2002 and again in 2008, we survived. For how long is debatable. There will be no urging to go back to work. There are no jobs. We hold our destiny in our own hands, and hopefully will repeat what we accomplished in 2010 in 2012.
If Egypt follows our model and gets rid of the corrupt government without allowing in a much more corrupt and theocratic government, they just might survive their latest takeover.
That’s my rant!
