    It was. (Long and a good read)

    I'm not sure of exactly what to believe or who to believe anymore.

    What I do believe personally is that;

    • The economy as we knew it is dead
    • We will hit a debt wall that will send us into a real crisis
    • Most citizens either don't see or won't see what is happening
    • There is an oligarchy running the country into the ground for their own benefit (made up of those in the "club", R & D)
    • When the wheels come off, it will be a hard landing
    When, I dunno. Might happen in slow motion, might be quick. Probably within the next five years.

    Its been a huge robbery of the American middle class,loss of manufacturing,outsourcing, large amounts of greed by everyone concerned,yes people were making huge sums of money in the 80's and 90's but at the expense of the country so it's a huge problem capitalism can only work with morals,values and love of country last part must come first and I'm not sure how you can apply that.

    We need to find some way to stop corruption in government and business.:headscratch:

    America'a Soul is alive and well, in suspended animation, but heart and lungs performing quietly, awaiting the day of reckoning when God and Man
    together burst forth like a fertile seed in Spring and sprout Freedom once again as our Founding Fathers intended.

    Whether Washington and its inhabitants will fall like Sodom & Gomorroh with all hands or simply a new bright sunny day following elections. When
    power mad despots run amok and are subjecting the nation and the people to such indignity, it is bound for real change, not the evil change promised by a lying politician...:texas:

    IMO this starts at home as a child!!!
    As long a parents are not willing to be parents that problem will continue!
    Moral, ethics, pride and love of country are a parents obligation to their children. Parents today rely on every other source but themselves to teach children these values IMO!

    I agree totally only wish we could convince parents and school administration of that but in fact they appear to be moving in the opposite direction.

    MMM,

    That is absolutely and completely correct.

    There is far too much moral equivalence that prevents kids from realizing that there are often black and white/right and wrong choices out there.

    People need to be able to determine if something is just "wrong"... maybe hey can't cite the law, regulation or statute, but they just KNOW that something is in fact wrong.
