A Reminder - Why We're Doing This

The inimitable Mark Steyn,
I was in Australia earlier this month and there, as elsewhere on my recent travels, the consensus among the politicians I met (at least in private) was that Washington lacked the will for meaningful course correction, and that, therefore, the trick was to ensure that, when the behemoth goes over the cliff, you’re not dragged down with it. It is faintly surreal to be sitting in paneled offices lined by formal portraits listening to eminent persons who assume the collapse of the dominant global power is a fait accompli. “I don’t feel America is quite a First World country anymore,” a robustly pro-American Aussie told me, with a sigh of regret.

I read that, too, but on a different site. Quite disturbing, and reminds me of the time a year or so ago when Putin, of all people, said 0Bama was taking the USA in the wrong direction.
Make sure you're all stocked up on Beans, Bullets, and Band-Aides, and have some silver and/or gold coinage around. Might be a rough ride if we can't get the Ship of State turned away from the rocks!
