    I have no idea where we're headed. I think it could go one of two ways. Either we start something, a movement, to remove the two party system, and get money out of politics, and enact MAJOR election reform...at which point, the direction AFTER that is a bit of a mystery to me....


    Or we continue on our current path, were in our future is bought and paid for by corporate interests.

    I have plenty of issues with the fed, and I don't even believe that a separate fed is the best way to manage monetary policy, but it's not this evil partnership between rich bankers and Dr. Evil that you make it out to be. That's just tea party myth.

    The dollar and the fed reserve note are the same thing. It is what it is.

    It is the Federal Reserve CORPORATION. JFK actually issued US National currency and it's a possibility it may have shortened his life, or not.
    A CORPORATION can file bankrupcy but governments default. The word CORPORATION separates it from the US Gov't. Read about Woodrow
    Wilson, Jekyll Island, and the Federal Reserve. There's about an extra $trillion out there that floats around the World to settle petroleum accounts.
    Then there's a trillion or two out there secured by MBSs (mortgage backed securities) that are underwater, then the phony guarantees for hedge
    and derivative funds to the background music of hundreds of trillions, and last but not least, those wonderful bankers we keep in gin and Cuban cigars,
    instead of bars and chains. And now the NWO, or CORPORATE (THINK BANKING) control of gov't brought to you by SCOTUS and Citizens United.

    You don't trust Trump? Well, there's only one way to leverage him to do what's economically right for us all: Powerful American Political Alliance. Got courage?! .. and a mere $5.00?

    People said the same thing about Elvis, the Beetles, and the young Frank Sinatra.

    Fortunately, world population growth is leveling off, and we are learning to create more with less raw materials. We are probably thousands of years away from being overpopulated.

    Obesity among America's youth is far lower than obesity among America's older generation.

    It would probably be miserable to me also, but lot's of people seem to like high rise apartments and big city life.

    Me, I like my five acre compound in the suburbs. I can point out plenty of un-utilized land all over the country, if you would like to have your own compound.

    From the CDC:

    'Obesity now affects 17% of all children and adolescents in the United States - triple the rate from just one generation ago.'

    Obesity and Overweight for Professionals: Childhood - DNPAO - CDC

    Please defend yourself now.

    Defend myself from what? You? Don't make me laugh.
    I made the statement that America has gotten fat. It has. I haven't, and maybe you haven't, but our obesity rates are through the roof, and we've become collectively lazy and complacent. I have no need to defend myself from anyone. Look up the stats.

    Irrelevant to my statement. Actually read it once more.
