FUTURE: When We Become Like Europe, This Is How We'll Look

Scanning a story by FoxNews.Com it occurred to me the US of A has a lot to look forward to. The rule of thumb is entertainment norms move west to east; cultural norms move east to west.

Hhmm! Let's see what's moving west.

Straight from the Queen's personal masseuse comes this ...
The South Wales police arrested evangelical Stephen Green outside the Mardi Gras event in Cardiff and charged him with using "threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour."

HT: Tongue Tied
The US isn't where the rest of the world is yet, but we're gaining ...
Following complaints from a local atheist, a post office in California removed a poster carrying the words "God Bless America" from public view so it wouldn't violate the separation of church and state, reports the Santa Maria Times.
All kidding aside, Americans need to watch what is happening to the once great European countries as they defragment into communal dysfunction.
