9.11.11 Remembrance
As we await the day of 9.11.11 and all that will be recalled on this occasion, we are all too aware that our country is in peril in other perhaps even more dangerous ways: Unemployment at well over 9%, not counting millions who are considered "too old" to work, and who for whatever reason have given up looking; our immediate debt is estimated to be 14+ TRILLION dollars, not including unfunded mandates which according to some estimates run as high as 50-75 TRILLION dollars, and our debt is owned by China and other countries, who now can exercise unfathomable influence over our essential way of life. Wait til they show up to buy our farms, our prize real-estate, our software and hardware companies, our arms-building companies-- we will suddenly one day grasp what up to now is not fully understood or appreciated and there will be hell to pay.
