And I’m floating
in a most peculiar way
And the stars look very different today
Space Oddity – David Bowie

In his classic “Space Oddity,” David Bowie sings about Major Tom to whom the stars “look different.”

In her council winning post this week Bookworm Room explains why a different Tom sees things differently. Specifically she explains  Why Tom Friedman is an idiot

So I’ve now provided proof that Friedman is an idiot. He doesn’t understand the facts he has, and ignores the facts he doesn’t like. From that foundation, he makes grossly (and gross) ideological arguments, assuming the preening, snide posture of a seasoned sage, condemned to deal in perpetuity with ill-educated louts.

Bookworm nails Friedman’s inability to assimilate new facts; he’s still living in a pre-2000 world.

Not everyone is as impervious as Friedman to changing realities, in his winning non-council post, Angela Merkel, multikulti and “progressives” mental paralysis  Simply Jews credits Merkel with acknowledging what few others in Europe will.

In short: Europe is looking into abyss. And the only good thing is that some more courageous leaders are willing to face the facts, instead of hiding behind the mental paralysis of the “progressives”.

Enjoy!
