    What's the worst of the worst in the first decade of 21th century?

    Time magazine has publized their selection of the wort ten things in the worst ever decade. And which do you think is the worst of the worst?

    I would choose Iraq and afghanistan wars, because they are intentionally made disasters.

    And the attacks on September 11th were accidental.

    You left out Herr Obama being dishonestly handed the primary win and subsequently being elected.

    I voted 9/11 because so many negatives came out of that, and so far there aren't all that many positives to point to. Natural disasters are a fact of life on Planet Earth and while they can be terrible, they do not rob us of our freedoms, innocence, or peace.

    Too early to tell how bad Herr Obama's election will play out in world history. If it should shake us out of our apathy and restore us to a commitment to defend our Constitution, history, heritage, values, freedoms, and way of life in America, it will be worth it.
