Anger management is a poor way to live. So the US is no longer the nation it was. So socialists actually outnumber wealth building capitalists. They're not going to get smarter by being angry, and you can't change their minds with facts or arguments, because in fact half the nation has made a very reasoned argument that they like receiving wealth that others earned ... people vote their own pocketbook. Economic collapse is inevitable, most people on the planet go on living their lives. It may be painful to realize we used to be better than this, but capitalism is embraced only by a minority today. Find a way to make peace and live with it.

A recent analysis by Economist magazine on the best places in the world to live based upon wealth, availability of jobs, health, longevity, education, and other factors placed the U.S. in 16th position. Of the top 10, 7 were in Europe and almost all of them had a government furhter along on the socialism scale than we are. I have been to a lot of European countries and we fool ourselves if we think that they are all like Greece. Go to Holland some time. Or any of the Scandanavian countries. Go to Australia or Canada if you think that single payer health care doesnt work. It is much better than we in this country are led to believe.

Aw to heck with the so-called 'anger managment' concept...It is designed to passively (under the guise of concern) attack those who get angry many as a result of very real tresspass into their lives by the pacifists (who advocate said programs)...Why? So they can twist it to be the angry person is wrong and in the mean time seek protection from retalliation from the individuals who's lives they have taken hostage. Our forefathers/mothers played the same game while stealing this nation away from the Native Americans....their version of 911? Pass bogus laws which protect them and then call the calvary. It is all the same ole game with different players and twisted concepts hidden behing modern jargon.

The U.S. birth rate just hit a new low which has liberal media outlets like NPR pointing out that Medicare and Social Security are in trouble as a result. Why? Because the program isn't being paid for with money former workers put into the system, that's already been spent by the government, but by young people currently working.

The U.S. birth rate hit an all-time low last year, according to a report from the Pew Research Center — just 63 births per 1000 women of childbearing age.

This is a problem. Not just because...
