    Will they be invading then? I think I'll email Patrick Swayze to see if he can give some pointers on fighting them in the mountains.

    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life:
    The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves Orcs. ~ John Rogers

    Re: Ruskie gives the US 1 year

    Yeah, things might be bad in this country right now, but last time I checked things weren't so bad that we were just going to pack it in as a nation much as he said.

    And then I read this gem:

    But he said the recent economic turmoil in the U.S. and other "social and cultural phenomena" led him to nail down a specific timeframe for "The End" — when the United States will break up into six autonomous regions and Alaska will revert to Russian control.
    And then I realized that's what this is all about. The Russians are still convinced that somehow they got ripped off when they sold Alaska to the United States and continue to insist that Alaska still legally belongs to them and continue to demand that we turn it over to them since they are the rightful owners.

    Re: Ruskie gives the US 1 year

    There's certainly a distinct possibility that he is right in a general sort of way, but I think half of what he says is hardline propaganda and the other half is based on a complete lack of understanding of our culture. If things do go to ****, it will be in a way that is completely different than he is expecting.

    I also think the prediction of Obama declaring martial law is ridiculous. The ****storm that that would create would be immense, and Obama would not have the support of the military for such a drastic measure.

    Russian envy...

    They figure since it happened to them, it has to happened to us.

    No doubt we have probems, but I'd say the core of the country is pretty darn healthy. Apathy is what kills countries and there's very little of that right now in our political process..

    I agree. A military coup would happen about two seconds after it was declared. But maybe a civil war wouldn't be all bad. If our net worths are destroyed, what is the incentive to remain peaceful?
