  • It makes me scared for my children and grandchildrens future more then anything. I am glad we are pushing foreign language skills so if the American economy and way of life goes by the way side maybe they can move somewhere else. and have a good life.

  • Yeah, warm and fuzzy wasn't exactly the feeling I got all over. More like nauseated and horrified. But, I get what you are saying Carpy. LOL. Actually, disgusted and horrified would be a better way to say I feel.

  • Um ... no.

    It does make me glad that I and my family are capable of doing what we need to do to take care of ourselves even if the whole country falls apart and/or disintegrates ... because if this isn't fixed soon, it will. That makes me sad and angry rather than warm and fuzzy.
