Jesus H. Christ! That was an AWESOME article! It hit the nail on the head describing the sick culture in America. Here are some great excerpts from the article:

"The United States, locked in the kind of twilight disconnect that grips dying empires, is a country entranced by illusions. It spends its emotional and intellectual energy on the trivial and the absurd. It is captivated by the hollow stagecraft of celebrity culture as the walls crumble. This celebrity culture giddily licenses a dark voyeurism into other people’s humiliation, pain, weakness and betrayal. Day after day, one lurid saga after another, whether it is Michael Jackson, Britney Spears or John Edwards, enthralls the country … despite bank collapses and wars."

"It is the cult of self that is killing the United States. This cult has within it the classic traits of psychopaths: superficial charm, grandiosity and self-importance; a need for constant stimulation; a penchant for lying, deception and manipulation; and the incapacity for remorse or guilt."

Perhaps this should get moved to the Politics section

As if we needed any more evidence that the American "way of life" is royally screwed, here are a few other articles to get your blood moving. I take no political sides, regardless of the articles' commentary. I feel that both the Democrats and the Republicans have failed the American people. They are two sides of the same coin; one a fast train to destruction and the other the slower train to the same destruction. Time to find our own paths and create our own realities, and stop waiting/hoping for our country of birth to prop us up. It ain't gonna happen.

Some wise words...that most will ignore. Create your own world..live in it...as if your life is at stake..because in fact, it it.
