    Well, it appears that as we self inflict handicaps upon ourselves that we're not really able to overcome those self-inflicted handicaps and thus we're probably not a great nation anymore.

    Demographics have everything to do with it. A nation is nothing more than people.

    If we did a poll today on people that believe Carlin's message of hopelessness if more people believe it is true than demographics would prove that this nation would be doomed.

    1.) There is a supply shortage of the types of immigrants who come from nations which have proven themselves capable of building, and sustaining, civilization.
    2.) We're still left with the fact that we now have a lot of immigrants who are dragging us down.
    3.) Immigrants isn't the relevant category, it's people who made the nation, immigrants comprised only some of the people.
    4.) We were able to effectively assimilate past immigrants during periods of enforced immigration moratoriums but no one seems in the mood to completely stop immigration for 40 years and turn culture away from a multiculturalist perspective and back towards an unrelenting assimalative perspective.

    But, basically, the problem is people, and the solution is people.

    I am not sure I agree that a complete halt on immigration would be a good thing - especially since it cannot be done without ruinous expense.
    I would agree that certain core values need to be sustained, or we'll lose even more of our foundation. People like something they can rely on, and we don't have much of that these days.

    I'm all ears, or eyes, so if you've got a solution in mind, then share it and let's see how it could work.

    Re: Your Opinion on this Video Clip

    The poll leaves out one important choice.

    Yes, most people are owned as Carlin says. I am not one of them. I have recognized what he says for years. However, instead of people accepting personal responsibility for their votes, they still blame the system.

    The owners only own you guys because you let them!

    Willfully ignorant, like he says.

    I do not have a solution.

    Wish I did.

    Maybe this is the start of some kind of nationwide change, where people realize nothing is really as concrete as they wish it were, and who knows where we end up from there.
