    of military bases all over the world.  Rome fell because it overextended itself as all empires tend to do.

    Nope.  We're told to cut food stamps, unemployment comp, health care and not only not touch one penny that goes to the Pentagon, but increase the billions thrown into that yawning maw that's never satisfied.

    The biggest problem, though, is that neither or the major political parties will do a single thing about it.  They'll argue about how much bread to take out of a hungry childs mouth, not whether or not to fund that bread by cutting our bloated military budget.

    We're living in upside down world where the only reason people are tolerated is to provide labor for the profit of the monied interests and serve as cannon fodder for corporate benefitting wars.

    There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.
