    As To  Our News Media !
    The sky is falling , wars with China , Japan , Russia are imminent ,   mass financial crashes are about to envelope us , our military elite are planning a take- over of our country ,   A major earthquake  , tsunami ,  plague   something ............Is going to happen .    What  is so drastically important to our media  that  it just has to  advance mass hysteria today ? Is it only  Money ?

      The news media is owned by just a few corporations.  They worship money.  In the United States today if something does not may sense, look at the money, and it will.

        In all likelihood, it is MUCH WORSE than actually relayed by the media.  The world events are going to become MUCH WORSE before it becomes better.   Just fasten the seatbelts, people, it is going to be a quite perilously bumpy ride.

      I agree that it is going to get a lot worse.  It is written in Matthew 24.

      Or, maybe read "The New World Order"  by Ralph Epperson, written in 1989.

      It is happening.

        But sometimes a picture may be misleading or saying nothing. A "Post America World" could mean a time when America hegemony in the world wanes, not its destruction. This idea is nothing new and has been spoken about for some time. America's global dominance relative to what it once was say 50 years ago has been in decline for many years now, long before Obama. Who is still passing around the nonsense that Obama is a Muslim? That is RIGHT up there with Trump and his sage advice.

        Just because the President reads the book does not mean that he is supporting its contents. I know Fareed Zakaria as a renown political commentator, who has been mainstream on ABC" "This Week" Sunday Program for many years and is hardly a bomb throwing radical. Are you are allowing yourself to being taken in by more right wing nonsense?

        I have not read the book, have you?

          I haven't read this either , but credence is right , we won't forsake the information in the book because of the idea  that Pres. Obama's reading it .    We could all do  a lot better by reading this , America  ,more than likely , isn't going anywhere very soon , as to  being a superpower . I challenge any other nation to take   a  serious leadership role in the world economies , the defense of other nations and  their peoples , and to being at the top of the successful economic heap .   Yet I seriously doubt  that many of the ones mentioned in this book  are truly capable of it ! Why , because of the  intricacy of certain  infrastructure that we enjoy ,our business friendly constitution , our  justice  system and it's friendliness to corporate America ,, our puritan  work ethic ,  a corporate friendly government representation .  The intelligence of it's work force ,the  marketing system  ,for some ................    There is far , far more to an overall successful economy than  stealing technology,   cheap labor  and corruption and graft friendly  governments  .

            Thanks, Ahorseback

            'Superpower' may be a misnomer. WE just spend exorbitant amounts on defense of the free world, draining our treasury while the societies under the umbrella reap the benifit of not paying nor laying out infrastructure toward this expense.

            If we do not invest in the American economy and educate our workers from the ground up, we will see our economic advantage fade away as robots and outsourcing take up the slack.

            Don't be surprised, China is on the rise. America had the 20th century the 21st might well belong to someone else
