  •  A dire assessment, (14+ / 0-)

    but I cannot diasagree with it. As this super power empire of America unravels, with so mant resources being spent to shore up all the global outposts, the situation at home becomes ever more rotten at the core.

    Following recent trends in gun violence nationally, and watching the currents in politics in this SW zone of inanity called Arizona, I cannot help but think that violence is a certainty before credibility returns. I think it is unlikely that credibility will return until trends in income inequality reverse substantially; until the rampant corruption is cleaned up. That means the center of power must no longer belong to the kleptocrats-plutocrats. They won't give up that power peacefully.
