    We are slowly sliding into a civil-ish war about tea, but yet are so convinced of our own superiority, that we are incapable of realising that (apart from our own heads stuck up our own asses) the end of the age of 'Pax Americana' and the Dollar as the world's reserve currency (do any of you have the faintest idea what the concequences of that are?) is sliding into history. Politicians of all colors argue the toss about whether to apply tax or fantasy to alleviate the problem of the staggering debt burden we suffer. Well, WAKE UP AMERICA, our post WW2 screwing of the rest of the world for our own benefit is well and truly over, and prepare for poverty! (Discuss - and if you have no opinion, then you really are living the American dream).

    Yes, American exceptionalism and greatness is over woe is us. As millions continue to desperately attempt to immigrate here, we are sliding into poverty.

    You may loathe the American dream, but the untold of amounts of wealth this country has accumulated and spent, albeit on credit in many cases, on countless research and development projects is unimaginable. The F-117A was "acknowledged" and revealed to the world in November 1988; it was developed in the 70's. Even in 1988 the technology behind it was twenty years ahead of civilian technology.

    You think if oil was cut off tomorrow this country wouldn't be the first to respond and flourish. Dream on....:lol:

    Oh well...empires come and go.

    When an empire fails to service the needs of the majority of its people, when its leaders become parasites and forget that it takes an entire society to become and stay powerful, then that empire begins to rot from the inside.

    What is happening to the American Empire?

    GREED IS GOOD is what has happened.

    That pernicious lie is the cancer on our national zeitgeist that is rotting the body politic.

    We've done really fucking stupid crap in the past 100 years that we shouldn't of. That is for damn sure. One of the dumbest fucking things we ever done is fuck up our schools and take the right away from the business owner to decide who he or she wants to employ. Next is likely growing the government into the monster it is that went against everything our founders stood for.(Fed, giving the presidency super powers, ect). Our founders were right on everything. Fucking idiots we are.

    I'd say between fucking up our country with stupid idea's that killed hundreds of millions of people in the 20th century--- has earned us the right to be called really stupid.
