regarding fema, not sure you have a clue what you are talking about. your country will implode collapse precisely because of rampant capitalism. it is spending money it does not have on eternal wars, racking up an unmanageable debt and thenext bubble burst will completely dwarf 2008 when the fiat currencies evaporate in value. china is already making a pull out of the petro dollar and others are joining. once the USD loses that status as a world reserve currency the shit will totally hit the fan.

Dwayne - Without the government, we would have no regulations on those that want to self-destruct. Why is it, when people overdose, drink too much or smoke cigarettes like a chimney and they get sick from it, suddenly they want tons of my money (tax payers) spent on them to be saved and when saved go back to their self-gratification destructive ways. You want to know the reason America been going downhill ever since the 1960, we allowed socialism to creep into every facet of the America dream and it has poisoned the minds of every generation since. Nothing in this world is free, someone will have to pay for it one-way or the other.

i grew up in canada and spent some time in certain european countries which are all rather socialist compared to the cut-throat capitalism of the US. And you call yourself a Christian nation? Jesus and the early church all shared and were complete socialists. neither is canada nor socialist countries being destroyed because of it. society taking care of the weak. you rarely see homeless people in these countries. did you know that there are three times more homes under foreclosure and boarded up as there are homeless people in the US? that is ridiculous. i certainly do not need anyone regulating what i put into my body, as i have said numerous times, and no i don't go to the government asking for help. america will implode or collapse because the federal reserve is a private company which has been relentlessly printing fiat money to create a bubble to compensate for the last crash. but this is only sustainable for so long. another reason is that that US has overextended itself fighting all sorts of wars based on debt and printing money. 51% of the US budget is spent on the war machine (and all those manufacturers are also private companies, profiting from it), spending more than almost all other countries combined. spending so much in fact that it cannot even take care of its own people or infrastructure (that is not a profitable endevour for the elite/1%).

Dwayne - I've been all over the world too, thanks to Uncle Sam, Canada, Europe, Asian Peninsula and the Middle East, please, I seen how socialism works, why does most of the civilized world yearn for the same freedoms and rule we have and some are even changing to it, while a group of idiots here in America, wants to change us to be like them, in my book, they are fools.

actually, i know most if ANY people in canada or europe, which are basically socialist compared to the US, are not "yearning" to be like the US. your people work much longer hours for much less. if your GDP per capita happens to be higher,if you knock out the 1% who practically own everything, the average US person is much worse off than the citizens of the "civilized" world. The only people who might yearn to move to the US are second and third world countries or those that the US is turning to rubble as part of its endless for-profit wars. but if the petrodollar sinks down the toilet, which looks fairly possible, i think the US will downgrade to a second world country, at least what concerns average joe. its infrastructure lags way behind. but the rich will certainly remain, although all their wealth will long ago be hidden offshore.

why not? if you treat people like idiots who supposedly cannot vote on simple decisions, maybe they become idiots ruled like cattle. but if given the chance to engage in discussions and vote on individual decisions, i believe many people would start thinking and become smarter and more aware. now it seems that only half actually bother to show up for the elections, because they don't see any point in it.
