Well I still have a few more years to build up my ammo and git a few more guns on the to get list. Either way it goes looks like we are all going to need a lot of ammo.

18 years, huh? I think they are being overly optimistic. With government oversight, (oversight- meddling, micromanaging, overegulating, taxing) I think civilization as we know it can be severely damaged or destroyed sooner than that.

Time to start selling those buttons again- the ones that say "Go Lemmings Go!"

What c3shooter said. It won't take 18 years.

Look at the stories to the side of the main article. I dont think the computer model has all the information necessary to reach a viable conclusion. I have seen some pretty bad computer models before that did not have all the necessary data. This one looks like a bogus attempt to calm things down.
Wyoming is passing new legislation that will get them through a collapse. The imminent collapse of the Eurozone. There is a prediction of a peoples uprising against the government. A conflict between the will of the people and the will of the government is expected by the government or the recent legislation concerning search, seizure and military arrest along with the presidential order to nationalize everything would not have come about. Put these other stories together and the picture becomes far more bleak.

Don't worry guys, when the smoke settles I will be Emperor of the Western Hemisphere.

Through either diplomacy or Nuclear force, we will reestablish the worlds governments.

The law of the land will be exactly what was on the books the day the 2nd amendment was ratified, nothing more, nothing less.

It should not take more than 10 years of my leadership to restabilize the planet and begin the process of transitioning back to democratic control of government with 3 new wrinkles.
A. Only Veterans are allowed the vote
B. No new law shall be passed without first striking down at least 1 existing law.
C. No political parties will be allowed and NO private funding of campaings.

All should be right again within 2 decades so keep your powder dry and the world will turn.

Tack

Oh, give it up...This planet has been destroyed and populated more times than humans can imagine. It's a cycle of destruction and build that will happen millions of times more. All we can do is enjoy the moment and participate in helping it along.

I like the absence of political parties, don't know what to think about the law thing, and am completely against the voting thing. I do not think being in the military should give you more rights than the people you defended. As a soldier you are not fighting for yourself, but for your country. There are plenty of good and responsible non veterans out there. Talk about punishing the many for the misdeeds of the few. Should we all be kept from owning guns because some people are irresponsible with them. Although this is a hypothetical situation, it does convey your political views, most of which I agree with you on.

I should have typed the Vet thing in Green as that portion was somewhat toungue in cheek. I do however get a bit tired of men who never served putting our forces in harms way and then effectively tying there hands with BS rules of engagement.

Perhaps just the position of "Commander In Chief" would require Vet status.

Emperor Tackleberry will consider your thoughts.
