We waste Trillions on boondoggles to fulfill pointless political agendas that only exacerbate the problem. Make Self-reliance Plan A, and hope for the best.

Unfortunately America as a country is heading for the old folks home. Talk about lousy timing. I for one have given up talking about the changes coming.
Nobody wants to hear it. We are all Cassandras, unheeded prophets, doomed to rail against the evils of our society to empty bleachers and unwatched youtube videos. Most Americans live in a dream world and like it that way.
