  • Looks like it.

    I think the labor strike put the last nail in the coffin. Blue collar labor went yesterday, white collor going today...seems like they've really had enough.

  • We will see. Unfortunately you can't just say yippee. Who will take over? The vice President? Good for us but probably not what the people want. The military? Is that what they really want? I hope it turns out well for them.
