    I blame voodoo and Reaganism- Taxes too low, pandering to the rich, failure to invest in infrastructure and education/training. Myopic selfish Pubs and dupes/haters.

    "The British journalist Ed Luce, whose book Time To Start Thinking is subtitled America In The Age Of Descent, argues that its failure to invest in infrastructure, research and education has been hugely damaging.

    He told me: "The American dream no longer exists. If you compare income mobility, for example, you're twice as likely to move up an income group - up a class - in Canada or Germany as you would in the US.

    "You're as likely to move up a class in Britain, and Britain's at the bottom of the league. It's got to stop these trends; otherwise it'll cease to be the America we admire; and I think it's to a large extent already ceasing, or has ceased, to be the America we admire.

    BBC News - Is the US caught in the slow lane?

    see sig pp1- and thanks for the depression...:eusa_whistle:

    Tell it to the GOP. Of course they care little for country. It is all about what they can do to protect themselves and their class.

    The world is in decline and there is no human leader of any ideology that can do a thing about it other than put on the brakes or grease the skids.

    Yes,
    Same way that leds to the Decline of
    Briton
    Canada

    The left cut the militaries and gave more free shit to the population. You can't take from the productive class without decreasing the size of the overall pie. It takes resources(cash) to hire people and create productivity.

    The more I think of Ben Franklin, the more amazed I'm of just how right he was.
    When people figure out that they can vote for free stuff then the republic will die. Keep it while you can.

    More or less as undirect quotes...

    Blame Reagan after we saw Barry Obama establish "cash for clunkers"? Democrats thought that taxpayer dollars spent to destroy good used cars was the way of the future? We are mortgaged up to our asses to oil producing tyrant countries while the democrat majority leader told Americans that "oil makes you sick". Democrats authorized the Iraq conflict and then spent years pretending that they were bystanders or members of the jihad. Bill Clinton was diddling Monica while the 9-11 terrorists were attending flight school in the US and his ditsy A.G. ordered the CIA not to share data with the FBI or face criminal prosecution. Barney Frank was chairman of the powerful House Banking Committee which had oversight responsibility for Fannie Mae and he told America that Fannie was doing fine when in fact it was on the verge of collapse. What the fuk was he thinking? Blame Reagan? Only a fool or a quiche eating surrender monkey would suggest such a thing.

    Yep, at the moment America is in a serious state of decline, brought to you courtesy of the travail of liberalism. The question is how bad will it have to get before reality knocks at the door and these liberal pukes are thrown out of office. My bet is it will happen when the dollar bubble pops and all hell breaks loose.
