ECONOMIC CRISIS? WE'VE SEEN IT BEFORE.
Ok, here I go.
I have NEVER heard of anyone wanting to live "The Japanese Dream". Or that China is the "land of opportunity". Or that Russia is "where freedom rings".
As long as the good ole USA is all of the above we will be okay. Does anyone remember when the Japanese were going to "own" us? Their superior intellect and strategic planning would have us serving up McSushi to our Nipponese overlords.
Along came a little thing called porn, uh, I mean the internet. We ruled the world yet again with our innovation and ability to make money out of our innate American spirit of "can do it-ness". Not too long ago Russia was going to show us a thing or two. How's that Moscow Tower thing going now? Dubai? Can you say sagebrush? Then it was the "Chinese and/or Indian Century". Quelle bore that. Billions of pissed off serfs realizing that the newly monied just wanted them off their rice paddies and onto the factory floor (or if you were a gullible woman, the slave whorehouse.). Real new age.
Simple fact. We are going through a crap period, but, remember what happened to Tojo, Hitler and Mussolini when they decided that we were just a bunch of lazy fat asses. We have a new President who has actually inspired millions to be involved in their country and just like Roosevelt, he will help us through it. If you don't like him I will just tell you what I heard for the last eight years, "get over it, he won!"
America, love it or help fix it.
