Ah ha! I found it. Yes, after reading the YAHOO article, I am truly convinced that I am a dying breed of a society that is falling apart. I still have the old 'American' Spirit. It is time for the torch to pass on and carry the legacy, like the revolution did to England.

This time to either China or India.

I truly believe that George W Bush, Alan Greenspan, Dick Cheney, and Colen Powell have brought the end of the once mighty nation which fought for freedom.

Edited for truth


You know, I think he may well be onto something regarding the 'few bullying powers'.

Ahmadinejad: "American empire' nearing its end"

In which the Department of Defense replied:

"I bet we can make you fall first"

Well... with a total social collapse, there won't be laws right?

Just, don't roast them on a stake too close to the border, k? We don't need the smell.


Unfortunately, in all seriousness, freedom doesn't come about easily. The US got it's freedom through bloodshed, and it will probably take bloodshed to get it back.
You still have the option of simply leaving, what's a home but a pile of wood, really? What's a country but a mound of dirt?

Just leave, there are plenty of other governments out there who still bestow freedom to it's people... there's no point in waiting around and hoping the white-house is going to give it back... you know they're never going to do it voluntarily.
They don't deserve to have you in their country. And you don't deserve the torture.

He's a real fool and I hope he enjoys his 3 seconds in the sun here.

He should be fare more concerned, about WHY the United States would be taken down like this, far more worried about:

What we will become

Becauase SOMETHING has to happen to us and it will be

an NAU

a Merger or take over by the G7 into a United Currency

Joining the EU

Fantasitic Possibilities??? Something will happen to us

and it would be a merger with an body that could Merge and absorb this kind of debt and problem,

Whatever we become it will be Part of something, Much BIGGER, More POWERFUL and It wont have a constitution or a system of checks and balances to keep it under control and the entire military tecnology of the USA

I would be far more scared of what we become than we we are as the United States of America

This guy is comical, he's lapping up the free press here at every opportunity, his comments on freedom in Iran were the pick of the bunch, absolutely priceless! I wonder if Obama or McCain would be given the same privelage in Iran, interviews on live tv, a platform for attack etc... I can guarantee you not!

Perhaps he should sort his own economy out before lending his "expert" analysis to the current US climate lol!

Really? Name one...

The very notion of government means that people aren't free - they are governed.

It'll be China. That was the whole point of the Olympics starting on 08/08/08. Eight is symbolic of a new beginning, and the opening show was just chock full of symbolism pointing that direction.

The dollar is done, that’s for sure. 9 trillion in debt is an untenable amount for a country that has systematically exported it’s manufacturing base. We’re looking at hyperinflation on a Weimar Republic scale. Then there’s the way we’ve ticked off the whole world with our idiotic military adventurism. Half the world would laugh and cheer if we were nuked tomorrow. We’ve become the Nazi Germany of this century, and it’s beginning to look like we’ll have the same end. And for the same reasons by the way. Germany had to be destroyed and rebuilt in the globalist image for Europe to be united, and the USA must be destroyed and rebuilt in the globalist image for there to be a united America, and world.

Blah Blah squelch the rhetoric.. People just need to watch the interview Larry King on CNN and draw their own conclusion. Don't let conspiracy rule your world.

I have been told this diplomats visa has a 25 mile restriction from New York. How is that for America the free. Are we really scared of this man?
Be careful... he might have a box cutter in his pocket.

Everone knows how has the upper hand, so why worry? Fear and Paranoia run amuck. Of course "We will Never Forget". Something we all have to deal with.

Ahmadinejad is right. There are "a few bullying powers" that are creating the world's problems, and whoever is at the helm in the US is one of them. The US has been bullying its way to becoming an "empire". And now it's falling apart.

What America is meant to be has been spoiled and corrupted by the government and corporations.

Is someone disagreeing with Ahmadinejad?

I remember a line from the first Star Wars where Darth Vader says something to the effect of, "if this is a diplomatic mission, then where is the Ambassador?" Then he throws down the strangled body of the man who told him the lie. Had Vader believed the lie, then I suppose he'd have gathered his storm-troopers and went elsewhere is search of the stolen death star plans. But a person who is strong of mind and focused in purpose is not easily swayed with regards to Reality. Conspiracy Theorists seem to be the most easily swayed with regards to Reality.

I would like to ask Ahmadinejad, "if this is an Empire, then where is the Emperor?" Then do the Vader thing on him because the man is a liar. He's trying to get people to believe that this is an Empire. Last I heard, the United States of America is a Democratic Republic!! Anyone who believes otherwise will find that a padded cell awaits you. And if the USofA is anything other than what I can easily prove to you, then it is the Capitol of the Heavenly Kingdom and the place from which God conquers and rules the Earth. I'd be more than happy to illustrate this to anyone who seems to be confused about the matter.

Ahmadinejad is one of those people who thinks he's smarter than he is and is really headed for a historic downfall. No such Empire exists and if it does, according to some abstract definition of exists, then he is a citizen of it.

The "emperor" is the Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld/Wolfowitz beast.

All empires eventually collapse...

From 2005:

The Collapse of the American Empire



The neocons in power in Washington these days, those who were delighted to talk about America as the sole empire in the world following the Soviet disintegration, will of course refuse to believe in any such collapse, just as they ignore the realities of the imperial war in Iraq. But I think it behooves us to examine seriously the ways in which the U.S. system is so drastically imperiling itself that it will cause not only the collapse of its worldwide empire but drastically alter the nation itself on the domestic front.
...
Second, economic meltdown. Empires always depend on excessive resource exploitation, usually derived from colonies farther and farther away from the center, and eventually fall when the resources are exhausted or become too expensive for all but the elite. This is exactly the path we are on-peak oil extraction, for example, is widely predicted to come in the next year or two-and our economy is built entirely on a fragile system in which the world produces and we, by and large, consume (U.S. manufacturing is just 13 per cent of our GDP). At the moment we sustain a nearly $630 billion trade deficit with the rest of the world-it has leapt by an incredible $500 billion since 1993, and $180 billion since Bush took office in 2001-and in order to pay for that we have to have an inflow of cash from the rest of the world of about $1 billion every day to pay for it, which was down by half late last year. That kind of excess is simply unsustainable, especially when you think that it is the other world empire, China, that is crucial for supporting it, at the tune of some $83 billion on loan to the U.S. treasury.

That's where you are wrong, Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld/Wolfowitz serve the King; well not Rumsfelf and Wolfowitz, they are permanently retired.

Do not despair; after Bush and Cheney's term ends and they are replaced in a manner consistent with the Constitution of this DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC you will understand.

You really don't have a clue, huh?
