In allllll the history of the world no civilization has managed to survive even a very few centuries. Ours is no exception despite what the President may imply. People are people and, when faced with the big choices they inevitably make the wrong ones, like you do. Over and over and over and over.... the lesson to be drawn from your analogy is much simpler than the one you think you're conveying: people suck at thinking ahead beyond their own immediate needs. The most insightful person on earth knows enough to simply sit down and watch. Any other course will lead inexorably to disaster.

Shut up, fatty. You've got nothing to say of any interest. Go watch TV and pretend you've got anything to say to anyone smarter than a Golden Retriever. Do it. Do it now!!! nobody cared what you had to say when you were young and they certainly haven't got anything to say to you now.

You're such a nitwit you don't even know that Beck and Sarah Palin started the whole Birther movement in 2008, with great help from Andrew Brietbart.
Yes, the same Brietbart that made a phony video that destroyed the career of Shirley Serrrod.
He died at 43, a fitting end for a scumbag.

? Greatness? They were warlike people who increased their wealth by taking that of others'. That not a sign of a "great" people, that's a sign of insanity. But no matter, now they are gone and their "countries" lie in ruins... literally. How great is that? Nice weather though, I'll give you that. Speaking about greatness, how about Orlando! Hahahahahahahahahahahaha... magnificent! Future peoples will no doubt look back upon Disneyworld with awe of our greatness!

Carol, every time you try your hand at historical generalizations "it is almost too funny for words..."
Have you every read a book on Roman History?

Uh-huh. And I took Latin in school too. Very enlightened people the Romans. Who was the rascal that came up with the business plan for the Coliseum you wonder?

I repeat: if you'd like to see what America is just go back and watch the tape of the inauguration. 43 high school bands banging irritating rhythms on drums, some flashing lights, and the pointless decorations of beribboned soldiers pretending that playing football is the formula for success in life. How great is that? Oh, and Kelly Clarkson screaming into a microphone like a blonde bagpiper.

Uh, no, it wasn't/
"The principle itself was well known of old and had been in use on warships (one of the earliest recorded uses of sloped armour was on early Confederate ironclads, such as the CSS Virginia) and partially implemented on the first French tank, the Schneider CA1 in the First World War, but the first tanks to be completely fitted with sloped armour were the French SOMUA S35 and other contemporary French tanks like the Renault R35, which had fully cast hulls and turrets."
You don't' know much, do you??
Yet you continue to spout off without doing the fact check.

Shut up you southern fruitcake before I cut your little balls off and stuff them down your throat. How great is that?

"I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed:
And on the pedestal these words appear:
"My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!"
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away."
