This country is going down fast, Linoge sums it up

Linoge has an interesting essay on the video I posted earlier, its a good read on how we can't expect things to get better b/c everyone wants what they feel is coming to them.
My generation and the generation coming after are all about "show me the money" and damn the consequences. When we hit a wall with the global economy eventually, its going to be sad seeing them all standing in soup lines saying "this isn't right, wheres my check?".
 None of them, including my own kids, comprehend whats going to happen due to the unstoppable deficits and debts being left them by the baby boomers. I stay up at night worrying sometimes, but I don't think I can do more than put away a few more cans of soup in the basement.

Thansk :) that was a great follow up post that you linked.

As most people are saying.. we are doomed..

Thanks for the linkage.

I keep trying to see a way out of this mess, but every damned time I step foot outside my house, I am confronted with the stark reality that no one else cares... or is even capable of caring.

Interesting history coming, as Kevin likes to say...

I'm very curious what this country will look like in 50 years. If an outright breakdown occurs, I'm betting on parts of the country becoming all martial law-ey and others becoming strict Consitutional areas, that being said, I hope I never see either.
