I'm beginning to understand your earlier observation that perhaps we, as a country, need to fail before waking up to the dangerous reality rising around us. There can be great inspiration found inside of failure....even if you are surrounded by whining Jackals as you are here, carol.This is what is most worrisome. Americans are starting to act like sheep and submit to whatever is being dictated without even so much a protest.
There was a time when Americans would have gone out and bought large-sized drinks en mass in New York just because they were told not to.
But not a peep out of the sheep.
