I just gotta say...

that I have a solution to the problem...and it isn't this:

"Obama will also request $500 million to hire more border patrol agents and buy more equipment, according to lawmakers and administration officials."

Why hire more? I ask. The solution is to use the security forces we have already (i.e. Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, etc)....wait, wait...that's right, most of them are busy fighting wars on the other side of the world that were caused (in part) by lax security at home in the first place...aaahhh, circle of blame how you torment me!

But hey, since we can't do that then let's just run up more debt, print more paper money that has no backing and let everyone think we're on top of the problem so we can get re-elected. Then something (not saying what) will happen that will cause a huge public panic that will allow for us to declare ourselves "rulers for life" in order to restore order and maintain the illusion of security. Yes!! It's a plan! (bring in the coffee, donuts and arugala)

There is so much wrong with the US of A right now that I feel a saving grace is not going to save it. Need proof? Research the rise and fall of every other great "empire" and see how well they fared. You don't have to dig to deep...really, you don't. Just look around. How many of the following empires do you see as a major power these days? Romans, Grecian, Egyptian, Huns, Mayan...heck even the British Empire is a mere has-been. Enjoy the ride of the spiralling suck America, it's sure to be the last bit of fun you have for a long while.

Does look like we are headed in that direction, doesn't it?

Really messing with my head!

Why not, I say...all empires fail. Ours is doing it spectacularly. No invading force needed (though we have 'em), we'll do it all by ourselves from the inside!!

Thanks for stopping by HJ!

We don't even have to go back as far as all that. Check out the Rise and Fall of the Russian "empire" (formerly known as the United Soviet Socialist Republic). The USSR is a former super power. Now, they're no longer even a country, and most of what remains of their culture (not a lot) is concentrated in what is now Russia.

Yep. We're headed into the vortex for sure, and it ain't gonna be pretty.
