There is something clinically wrong with that idiot on Fox who has a chance to find out some real facts, but instead tries to whip up his viewership base for ratings and does so with out any respect whatsoever to this guy.
America's big problem is what to do when you can't get the lawmakers themselves to enforce the law. The answer to that question will determine America's future.

I'm somewhat confused why it's only the US that is *SNIP*. Who do you think bought all of that worthless paper?
Whether the the realization has hit or not, we are all in this flaming airship together.

It may be time to review some of his statements , either way, unbridled capitalism has been consigned to the history books .
But did we really have a chance anyway? To even begin to fight the system now firmly in place we'd have to begin at around age 5 and be on constant vigil, scanning for BS and lies, reading between the lines, researching, learning, protesting, writing your representatives, running for office...all while trying to get a job, pay the bills, and if you're lucky start a family. It was an impossible task all along. And because of this, we all just did what we thought we could in our spare time and hoped for the best. It's too tiring to fight all the time. Hell, sometimes it's too tiring just reading ATS and processing what we're really dealing with.
I never thought I would have to say this but I'm glad I don't live in America anymore. I think of my friends and family still there with the same worry as if they lived in [insert volatile country here]. They used to poke fun at me for leaving, joking that I was a traitor. Now they regard my expat status with flat out envy. I feel like I've watched the setting of my childhood being burned down before my eyes. Please, America, help pick up the pieces, take up your own slack, and let's build it again.
I absolutely realize that when the US goes down, it's taking down lots of others with its flaming tentacles. But for now, it's hard to take in the sheer scope of what's going on when you're worried if there will be gas to put in your car or if you will be getting a paycheck.
