    Hey you, out there on the road
    always doing what you're told,
    Can you help me?
    Hey you, out there beyond the wall,
    Breaking bottles in the hall,
    Can you help me?
    Hey you, don't tell me there's no hope at all
    Together we stand, divided we fall.

    "A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced, because they love their servitude." - Aldous Huxley - Brave New World

    The world makes less sense every day. Little children are randomly slaughtered in their schoolrooms. Predator drones roam the skies over foreign countries exterminating bad guys, along with innocent women and children (collateral damage when it occurs in a foreign country). Drugged up mentally ill kids with no hope and no future live lives of secluded quiet desperation until they snap. Ignorant, government educated, welfare dependent drones with no self respect or respect for others, assault, kill and rob within their government created urban jungles. Sociopathic criminals who committed the largest financial crime in world history walk free and continue to occupy executive suites in luxury office towers in downtown NYC, collecting millions in bonuses as compensation for crushing the American middle class. Academics, whose theories have been thoroughly disproven, continue to steer our economy into an iceberg while accelerating the money printing and debt issuance that will sink our ship of state. Corrupt, bought off politicians pander to the lowest common denominator as their votes are only dependent upon who contributed the most to their election campaigns, which never end. Delusional, materialistic, egocentric, math challenged consumers (formerly known as citizens) live for today, enslave themselves in debt, vote themselves more entitlements, and care not for future generations. The alienation and isolation created by our sprawling, automobile dependent, technology obsessed, government controlled, debt financed society has spread like a cancerous tumor, slowly killing our country.

    Yes, a sadly accurate portrayal of yet another day of this state of US economy and society.


    And it all comes down to the government-educated, dumbed-down "Delusional, materialistic, egocentric, math challenged consumers (formerly known as citizens) (who) live for today, enslave themselves in debt, vote themselves more entitlements, and care not for future generations," who voted our nation into this sorry pass with seemingly no more ability to perceive beyond the next entitlement or braindead political subterfuge than Pavlov's dog.

    Just as well there is someone like you, who has the courage to state the truth. I'm quite taken with the research you do and quoting the relevant sources.
    When I read some of the negative comments about your analysis, they generally are shallow and vindictive, and are without that element of proper rebuttal.
    Please keep up your good work and don't let the bastards grind you down. Best cheers for the coming year. Gordon
