I often wonder if the Mad Max days are just ahead of us at times,I remember back in the late 60's and early 70's,when the Women's Lib Movement/Anti-Vietnam war protestors was strong and heavy and I remember my grandpa saying then,If women get equal rights and flood the workplace it will only take 20-30 years for what we know as a common family to be destoyed,and if these bleeding heart liberals ever run the show America these people will slowly decay America away-HE SAID THIS BACK IN THE DAY,DAMN NEAR TRUE!!!! The liberals scare me more than anything else

Each generation learns less and less. You will never miss what you never knew or had.

Fair enough. Do you think this is more likely than a deliberate attack?

That is an important observation. That is why it is very important to teach our kids things they won't learn in school. American history, for one. Foreign history, particularly as it pertains to our current enemies, for another.

Econonmic. $900 billion of treasury bonds etc. held by China. If they dump them theirs, the rest will probably follow. Talk about a tail spin..
