So the news stations have become gossip columns with commentators of both major cliques prattling endlessly on about piddly matters such as Palin's umberage, Miss America's topless photos, etc. All the while Brazil, Russia, India and China are banding together to depose the dollar as world monetary standard.

You think we've got trouble now? Imagine what happens when the dollar is no more valuable than the peso.

Though the long corporate lock on congress is the true cause, you know who's going to get the blame.

Life's going to get even more "interesting"

So?
We pull ALL aide to those countries.
No longer export ANYTHING to them, ie; food.
And either colse our markets to them, or impose as high or higher tariffs on them as they do us.
We are one of the LARGEST consumer nations in the WORLD.
We don't buy your shit, you go hungry.
I for one can do without all the "cool" gadgets made in china.
Brazils' oil costs just about the same as anybody elses.
Their fruit and sech, we can do without, longer than they can do without us buying it.
Russia ain't got ANYTHING I want, ie; keep your effin caviar.
And India...moritorium ALL business with them.
This country has ALL the knowhow and abilities to be self sufficient.
My patience is sooo thin with both the world and our leaders.
The people suffer while they fuck about and have pissing contests.
Don't get me started. Wink Rolling Eyes

But you can't do any of this.

I'm not inciting anybody.
