Time To Bone Up On History

Via The Raw Story, comes the tale of America's decline, or possible decline. I'm opting for decline, given this & this & this &, most disturbingly, this.
America's top government inspector didn't stop there. He also bemoaned US fiscal policy, underfunded healthcare, poor public schools, lack of retirement benefits, a worsening environment, Iraq, aging infrastructure and immigration policy. His remark about "aging infrastructure" came just days before the Minneapolis bridge collapse.

"Simply stated, America is on a path toward an explosion of debt," he added. "And that indebtedness threatens our country's, our children's, and our grandchildren's futures."

"Long range simulations from my agency are chilling," he continued. "If we continue as we have, policy makers will eventually have to dramatically and/or slash government services the American people depend on and take for granted. Just pick a program -- student loans, the interstate highway system, national parks, federal law enforcement, and even our armed forces."
For some teevee background, you could start with this.

Or this.

Or, for the already converted perverted, there is this.

If you don't believe we're on the Eve of Destruction, ponder these:
Fear of fellatio, er, fear of black men.

Pizza pie? I think not, plus way to be balanced, you mention the ReThug party once, but not that Pizza boy is a ReThug.

Paging Mr. Foley.

The face of god?

This is too easy, I'm going to quit.

Wow this paints a pretty bleek picture here. I guess we could try and find just as many good things that are happening within our society can't we?? I hope so!!
