We're not to that point yet but sounds too familiar.
Not since the disintegration of the Soviet Union in 1991, and prior to that the fall of France in 1940, has there been so swift an erosion of the world influence of a Great Power as we are witnessing with the United States.

What is more worrisome than the fact that the United States has an inadequate president, is that the public still accords the incumbent a significant degree of support. If the American people, who have responded to intelligent leadership so often within living memory, has become so morally obtuse that it buys into this flimflam, the problem is more profound than I imagined.

In watching the first part of a documentary about bin Laden, the Taliban and 9/11, it started out in the 1980s when we helped the Afghans run off the Russians - one of the biggest contributions was a kind of weapon courtesy of the CIA that blew Russian helicopters out of the sky.
How can we forget how significant the Russians are in the equation when it comes to terrorism and how the targeting of America by the same Afghans we once helped to kill Russians then became the Taliban and put us in their crosshairs?
Russia has always been an adversary and even standing against us against terrorism, but it just dawned on me that the same terrorists who targeted us on 9/11 killed Russians with OUR help.

There's a direct connection here that is subtly overlooked?
So why are you rightwingers cheering on the Russians? You're so sick itch hate against he Preident of your own country that you applaud that killer Putin? Seriously?

It really is quite amazing to see the revival of anti-Russian sentiment coming, this time around, from the ostensible "left." What happened to you guys...O'bama lost your 'reset' button?

The government has run amok. It can't manage itself and there is more waste than we can even imagine.

If it weren't for the Feds keeping the economy afloat, we'd be in much bigger trouble. But the Catch 22 is the Feds are pulling back and plan to stop the presses next year.

We elected, perhaps, the most inexperienced and incompetent president twice in one of the worst possible times in our history. But it's not who we elect but who elects them.

And why I agree with you. We're at a crossroads, and if the left continues to pull the rest of the country down the wrong path, there may no turning back.

It's the liberal media who is the biggest threat to our republic.

I have never read or heard anyone say anything about any of this besides you and except, perhaps, conspiracy theorists who believe GWB was responsible for bringing down the Twin Towers.

Please tell me you don't believe that too.

Extra-terrestrials have been here long before 284 A.D. But glad to be back. Busy weekend.

Right in the middle of watching a Netflix documentary about near death experiences now though. Be back when it's over.
