45.5 - Warren Buffet vs. America First

I've been bothered by this "America First" slogan. Part of this is the fact I work with a very diverse set of people.

I watched the new "Becoming Warren Buffet" movie on HBO this week. And one of the things he said really crystallized my problem with the "America First" slogan. To paraphrase he said:
"I won the lottery. There was a 1 in 40 chance that I was born in the US. And there was a 50-50 chance that I would be born male. So I have a hard time understanding why my life is worth more than anyone else on earth."

You know what that means? Do ya? That means that our forefathers were kicked out of every decent country in the world. We are the wretched refuse. We're the underdog. We're mutts! Here's proof: his nose is cold! But there's no animal that's more faithful, that's more loyal, more loveable than the mutt... "
