As I sit here, ruminating on issues greater then I, I remebered an article I read years ago talking about how China and Canada were the next great superpowers, with the USA and Great Britain backing down. The future is all abot land mass and resources... So, I ask, is this day today? Is the USA, with $5 a gallon gas and morons still buying huge 4x4s and Hummers and Escalades and such, Britney Spears farts and it makes the news, we care more about American Idol than Iraq and the boys and girls dieing there, who cares about the future live for today screw your kids futures gotta make my life as great as possible, start wars for no reason in particular, just to make rich oil men richer, screw up post 9/11 international good will for world wide hatred of us and our flag, no longer relevant on the worlds stage? I, quite frankly, even as a career member of the US military, am so over the US. As soon as I retire, I am going back to Europe or even to Canada.
