America's problem in a word
They made it sound so complicated. America's problems today is just one word: Debt. Debt is wonderful as a servant, but it is a terrible master. All that we are seeing now is how they are trying to prevent cute Gremlims from morphing into monsters because they have discovered water. They are not solving the problem.
The Americans are just a people overflowing with optimism and doing things to wasteful excess. Now it is pay back time for them. The first step to recovery is stop being so wasteful.
