    Are we doomed?  And you know its true on so many levels! And there are many causes. Will we be able to turn things around before its too late ...
    or not?
    If not, what will become of this continent?
    Perhaps things will change for the better and things will greatly change. Or perhaps the FUN we all have been having is over for ever.

    On the other hand, perhaps the next generation(s) will make big and sweeping changes for the better.
    Is it possible?

      I believe we will turn it around. The time will come when we won't be able to, but we are far from there.

      That said, I'm pretty sure we don't even see the same problems much less the same solutions. Still, I respect the intelligence and resourcefulness of most of America. That will win out in the end.

        Especially if all people claim their heritage and respect each other's. We need to become One Nation.
        I believe we will.
        Thanks Pretty Panther.

          I believe we will, too. We start by being responsible for ourselves, seeking and rewarding integrity, and always looking forward.

      We have a LOT of cleaning up to do!! I see it in the way of that each of us now have to become  more of an active activist. Set the intention and know that know matter how small the action is, you are making awonderful contribution to cleaning up the MESS! Now the MESS? could be being more ethical with information when you are working in the financial industry...making some kind of truce with a neighbour you don't really warm to by being willing to putting out their bins when they are away on hols...it maybe not being a standby person when someone is being bullied...it may mean letting a person through the checkout when they have a couple of items and your trolley is full......just start where ever you are....remember water looks harmless yet over time it wears out mountains creating deep gorges...who would ever have thought? P.S. INMHO the FUN TIMES ARE DEFINETLY OVER. no more buying big things and lots of things just willy nilly. WE need to conserve and manage responsibly to get back to more a levelled manageable existence so the this new generation and the following have the planet Earth to live on. Egos need to be trimmed. The alpha males and females need to be taught to be less savage, less greedy, less dominating, less controlling and less bullying.

      For 2016...

      Keep quiet,that "Lady's" napping
      That Clinton named Hilary.
      Get too close--bad things will happen.
      --Four Dead In Benghazi.

      The woman's an insider
      Been there thirty whole years
      Shoulda been gone long ago
      New witness--quick,hide 'er
      They'll shoot her quick as a deer
      --Then she'll be quiet,you know.

      [Musical interlude]

      Whitewater, Travelgate
      Clinton Foundation bribes
      If you can pay,you can play
      Flooded with aliens
      Murderous,terrorist tribes
      Giving our nation away

      We're dead broke and Clinton's coming
      Blue helmet troops--that's UN
      I see a bald eagle falling
      No more will he rise again.

      [Final yelling into mike]  who killed Vince Foster?   And so many more?

      Thanks, Roger.

      Yes, I think we are headed for war which will take place on this continent. The party is over.

        We are a breath away from WWIII.  I think Obama is really trying to keep us safe. The US is building a $100 million dollar drone site in Africa. Something everyone needs to understand is that America is on the top, and no one can really defeat us.

        What we need to do is devolve the power to the local level, and to the state level where that engine of prosperity really is. The genius of Eisenhower needs to be appreciated, he built our roads and train systems, and he warned us about the military complex. We needed another Eisenhower whereby no one could invade us. Except for the Bush and Clinton family.
