♫ Nowhere To Run To, Baby…♫

♫…nowhere to hide…♫

Wirecutter linked me to RT Question More.

Who posed (in part) this idea…

To me, the US – and most of the supposedly free West – increasingly looks like a truck being systematically filled with Semtex.

But it’s easy to counter cries of alarm with the fact that the truck is stable – because it’s true: you can hurl more boxes into the back without any real danger. Absent the right detonator, it is no more dangerous than a truckload of mayonnaise.

But add the right detonator and you’re just one click away from complete devastation.

We can see how fragile the U.S. is now by considering just four tendencies.

The Four Tendencies

1. Destruction of farms and reliable food source

2. Weak economic system

3. Americans increasingly on mind-altering drugs

4. Morals in decline

MORE

There used to be a time (in my mind, anyway) that this constitutional republic strove to be the best.  The best physically, academically, militarily.  The best as a shining example to the rest of the World of individual liberty, rights and responsibilities.

A truly Norman Rockwell Nation.

We fed the rest of the World.  EVERYONE relied on AND TRUSTED, the Dollar!  People didn’t ‘just take a pill’ for every perceived ailment.  And, while differing dogmatically, we strove to treat others as we ourselves wished to be treated.

The times, they are a changin’.

  2. And to those who told me that Obama was better because he would facilitate working more with other countries and less going it alone, here is a world where nobody is willing to “cowboy up.” It’s on fire and spireling out of control. John Wayne’s characters were based on a real need for leadership and strength, but now America offers everybody “pajama boy” and metrosexuals.

  3. What they said. As de Tocqueville wrote, “America is great because America is good, and if America ever ceases to be good, America will cease to be great.”
