    Or nearly so. John Snow raiding the Fed. employees pension fund. We cannot manage our own ports. All the quail, along with all the other birds living in the wild, might be dead in two years from Bird Flu.  Even given that it won't be so easily transmittable to humans. The country run by a nut that gets his science from that reationary novelist Michael Crighton.

      That's why I say our own elite are going to be colonizing us soon. We're basically in the same boat as many in developing nations that have gotten stuck with too much debt--the elite will abscond with the dough and the perks from all those loans (war profiteering, anyone), and we'll be stuck holding the bills. Which they'll use to rationalize ever-lower wages and shitty working conditions, so we can earn enough to pay back the bills BushCo stuck us with.
