How Our World Fell Apart

We are not capable of controlling what the rest of the world does. We should be managing our own society, but we are too fixated on "how do I please myself", not on "how do we keep our own country in good shape".
Let's keep in mind that Russia has the thermonuclear weapons that the Soviet Union had. Bellicosity, in 1914, got a lot of people killed. Irrationality in 2014 can cause whole sections of countries to become radioactive uninhabitables.
Admit kids from failed society after failed society (in a country that is 17.6 trillion dollars in debt and climbing), and this will strengthen our march towards frugalality. I must be smoking some good stuff!!!

The constitution was written by a convention, not just one person. And our form of government is one of mutual consent. We all agree to be taxed, for activity of supposedly common good. We seem to have a system of "when the idiots outnumber the wise, the idiots call the shots". Welcome abord fellow crew members of the Titanic.
Why is there a fence around the White House? To keep the inmates inside the asylum.
Bush/Cheney caused this. Muslims can hold an 800 year grudge. There is no escaping from this.
