"A prince shall rise from the east and cause the modern liberal republican society to regress to Machiavellian feudalism and the world will lose the control of significance that prevented global war for an entire generation, and 27 years of war will follow."
Nostrodamus-like paraphrase
In reality, it doesn't take Nostradamus to predict this. Any educated person can see the dramatic regression of the American culture, and predict the impact of removing the influence of the revolutionary governmental concept invented in the United States that propelled the United States to the apex of influence in the world that had never occurred in the history of civilization from the stability equation of the human organization in the world.
Perhaps this is just one more catastrophic event that occassionally occurs in human history, which leads to disaster for most humans in the world. For this to happen, humans have to become ignorant of history first, thus not allowing them to recognize the history they are repeating.
Related: the progressives took control of the education system of the United States in the late 60s, after which there was a 40+ year decline without a single year of improvement. As a result, the American population has changed from the most educated population in the world to the most ignorant population in the industrialized world. Such ignorance will always cause that population to ignorantly repeat history.
Nostrodamus-like?

you're a birther. pretty much blows up any fanciful predictions you might dream up. that and no one who matters/those who don't think losing is winning wants to go back to the right wing myth/history(?) of the 1950s.

I'm guessing that when any department or agency has to close any office because there was a reduction of funds appropriated for it, idiots like you will think the government shut down, right?
Here's the facts:
There was no government shut down. It was all a hoax.
87 percent of the government was unaffected by the government shut down hoax.
We need to cut spending by just about that same amount this year, and many subsequent years to get back to a balance between revenue and spending. Continuing to borrow 1.3 trillion dollars every year for just the day-to-day existence of the government leads to certain collapse. In this situation, a catastrophic event, which one is certain to occur at some point in time, will cause the government to collapse at that time.
To save the government from the suicidal path it's on, we need to have a government shut down hoax a few times each year because...
You can't use the term "balanced budget" when discussing the government of the United States because this incompetent government hasn't even had a budget since Obama took office.
Even countries like Nigeria can generate a budget. Obviously, the government of even Nigeria is more competent than this Democrat government.
Apparently your teabagger friends fell for the hoax too. They marched out of congress with a white flag tied to their assault rifles.

"Rise in the east"

In what geographical framework is Hawaii in the "east", so this "prince" isn't Obama.

I'm think Bush was born in Connecticut & that is in the East.

Iraq war lasted about ten years plus 14 years of Afghanistan makes 24 years of war.

Hey, the guy was almost right.

When Hillary is our next President; single payer healthcare will have evolved from the birth of Obamacare. It's a process.

Obamacare Is Winning in Kentucky, Thanks to Steve Beshear

Kentucky, a bastion of anti-government ire, is the top state for Obamacare enrollment.

Kentucky’s perplexing and hypocritical aversion to big government has been exploited brilliantly by our senior senator Mitch McConnell, who’s capitalized on our cultural resentment of elite interference to transform the Bluegrass State into a deep-red citadel in federal elections. More recently, our junior senator Rand Paul catapulted McConnell’s vision much further than Mitch intended, placing Kentucky in the crosshairs of the Tea Party revolution. But while these two political icons and their surrogates clash over the depth of government slashing, they’ve been steadfastly united behind one common vision: the defeat, and, more recently, the repeal of the Affordable Care Act.

It’s no coincidence then that Obamacare is beginning to expose the political fault line that divides the two Kentuckys. The GOP’s effective—and quite misleading—messaging plays into the anti-establishment populace’s greatest fears about out-of-control outside interference: the myth of a government-run-health-care system, engineered by a President with socialist tendencies (and whose skin pigmentation and exotic name frankly heighten popular anxiety in some of the nation’s least educated counties). And yet, when you wade through the propaganda and understand the law’s true impact, Kentucky needs the Affordable Care Act…desperately. It’s a state consistently ranked near the bottom of nearly every national health survey, where one out of every six citizens remains uninsured.

With our long-standing tradition of timid politicians fearful of incurring the wrath of the anti-government mobs, it wouldn’t have been surprising to see Kentucky join much of Red America and reject both Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion to the working poor, as well as its option of establishing a state-run health benefit exchange to provide affordable health care to the remaining uninsured.

But in a delicious irony, Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul’s home state may ultimately serve as the proving ground of Obamacare’s success. That’s due to the political chutzpah of one man: Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear.

Over the past several months, Beshear used his broad executive powers to bypass resistance from the GOP-controlled state Senate to ensure that the Commonwealth is the only Southern state that both expanded its Medicaid rolls and opened up a health benefit exchange, providing access to affordable health care to our more than 640,000 uninsured citizens. And while the federal launch of the program has been plagued with technical difficulties, Kentucky’s experience has been exemplary: In its first day, 10,766 applications for health coverage were initiated, 6,909 completed and 2,989 families were enrolled. Obama himself bragged that Kentucky led the nation with its glitch-minimized performance.

http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2013/10...

So in the end, the GOP’s successful messaging efforts to rebrand the Affordable Care Act as “Obamacare”—and stand unanimously for its defeat and then repeal—could provide an opening for Democrats to win elections in areas that have been solidly red for decades. And with Steve Beshear’s help, the monster that Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul helped to create might ultimately turn on its masters.

LOL!! My azz is a one way door, and you wont like what rolls out of it onto anyone that challenges me.

I know from our prior conversations you are smart enough to realize there is a REASON dumocrats are very muted about this deal. There is no leftist celebration, no spiking the ball, no glad-handing going on. You know WHY that is? Its because the fight starts again (with renewed vigor) in 3 months.

Do you honestly think that "81% of Americans unhappy with direction of the country" Pew poll figure is directed at Republicans only? Its directed at BOTH parties and ALL their factions, and it will only grow until the mid-terms.

You know what that portends. Bring it on....:-)
