Sometimes it appears to me that the US is doggedly trying its utmost to snatch defeat form the jaws of victory, time and again. Seems to me that only vast structural imbalance, the associated inequity, and a power structure that is fundamentally self-interested and misanthropic, would allow one of the most inherently wealthy nations on earth to inexorably slide from 1st -> 3rd world status. It's heartbreaking to watch, and no doubt even worse to be tangled up in.

@lightweight That's a pretty accurate picture of the way things are over here.

@cstanhope :( . My homeland is the proverbial lead zeppelin...
