But I'm so concerned and outraged about the state of America these days. The country is in the hands of economic know-nothing know-it-alls. The economy is shit. Any upcoming recovery is imaginary and only forestalling the inevitable unless the fundamental structure and functioning of the economy completely changes. Barack Obama is a fraud and is Nancy Pelosi's bitch. Civil rights in California (of all places) are being denied. Sean Penn and his Uberliberal wannabe Communistas haven't been removed from their holier-than-thou pulpits.
America isn't dying, and maybe it isn't even sick. But it's developing some bad habits. 20, 30, 50, 100 years from now, we're gonna be behind the 8-ball. Maybe this blog will still exist in the future in some form, and I want to be remembered as "That obscure writer/philosopher known simply as 'Rob' who foresaw the collapse of the American Empire." Either that or "That obscure writer/philosopher whose ideas saved America."
Hope. Change. Yes, We Can.
