Tesla for me. S class is fugly, no amount of disco lighting inside is going to make me ignore 16mpg and fugly outside. I would not buy '14 S class if it was on sale for 30K.

No need for black panther analogy, just imagine if the bearded guy was a Muslim. What a different interview that would have been.

No way US has the most open immigration policy. I went through that "policy," all by the book. I also investigated other countries at the time.
1. US was the only country with no set criteria, other than near family members. There was no point system, no merit-based independent immigrant policy. H1B visa was (and is) the only way for an independent immigrant, other than special circumstances (like asylum, refugee, etc.). Australia? Point system. Canada? Point system. On a side note, H1B visas are in such a backlog, they are pretty much capped within a few days of new calendar cycle, where they can no longer be issued for the rest of the year. Open 3 days out of 365.
2. It took me 11 years to immigrate, all legal, all by the book. Canada? Would have taken 3-4 years. Australia? Similar.
3. Spouse gets nothing in US. No ability to work at all. Family unity, my ass. Spouses in Canada and Australia were allowed a working status, so family could immigrate together and continue working for a living, rather than falling on hard times.

Mr Professor has an overinflated sense of country ego. US immigration policy is no policy, it is a jungle, a mess. A capped mess. Eat or be eaten. My wife and I contemplated going around the system, having a child for immigration purposes before we were financially ready, but we persevered at time cost to us.

If US is an open policy, then camel through the eye of a needle should be considered an open policy.

I've never gone through this "de-conversion," since I've never been religious. I can only imagine it must feel really crappy to pull your well-established world view from underneath you. I know the rewards, since I'm in complete agreement with you, but it could not have been easy and must've been frightening at times.

Indeed it was, but now, on the other side, I wouldn't trade it for anything. And I make videos like this both to spur others toward that journey and to make the path a bit less rocky.

Religion. Until it dies, we'll all be dying over ideological differences. It's time to let religion R.I.P.

Not a chance for him. He is an atheist, as far as I recall, this is the most hated group with least likelihood of holding an office. Bible belt amuricans would rather elect a muslim than an atheist, which is telling.

Sadly you are %100 right. If anyone could overcome that through star power though, it would probably be Clooney (highly unlikely though).
