Should Texas/New Mexico/Arizona/California join Mexico, I presume their economies will tend towards their new national average.

So what is Chuck's list of what our game plan should be?

Arming Assad's opponents in Syria is an Act of War. We are 17.7 trillion dollars in debt, and our debt is going up every day. So some day we will have to stay out of other's wars because we will be bankrupt.

We told Ukraine we would guarantee their sovereignty if they would give up their thermonuclear weapons (back in the 1990s).

Twenty years before WW I started, France and Russia signed a mutual defense treaty, which 20 years later motivated Germany to try to knock out France before their war with Russia started. Defense agreements have had bad effects. We are playing with the same form of fire now. And one Russian thermonuclear weapon would make 9/11 look like a church picnic.

Nixon's Vindication

I agree with Ron Paul. The President needs to get congressional approval before ordering any military action. And commiting Acts of War in other people's countries isn't forgotten by those other countries at our pleasure. By the way, we are 17.7 trillion dollars in debt largely because of our continuous war making since 9/11.
The book "Bad Students, Not Bad Schools" is good.

I suppose we can try pressuring ISIS until these religious nut-jobs turn away from this sort of thinking. I expect the sun to run out of fuel first (5 billion years).
We are allowing in millions of low-IQ undocumenteds. That doesn't help our charts.

Behind the Sinking of the Lusitania

The Lusitania was carrying ammunition so that the British could kill Germans. The Germans objected. The Germans defended themselves. Our government got us into a fight that was not our's.
