Ok, so I have been a little busy the past two years to follow politics like I used to, and it seems to me that America is just one step at a time imploding. Russia has so many problems itself, but they are also a concern that we will have to deal with. China and the far east including India are all just kind of waiting. South America is becoming more and more bold led by H Chavez in its actions that we used to condemn.

I dont know what the future is but Im just curious as to everyone elses overall opinion and if theres an overall topic you would like to discuss I would like to hear it....

Anything you might feel I or anyone could be filled in on as well, post it.

Nothing new is going on in the world, its about the same as it was 6 months ago, but to a shittier degree.
TwoFacedTanner
Christian fanatics will tell you that the world is ending.

Bain
How about compared to 2 years ago.
TwoFacedTanner
Well in regards to what I said, they'd tell you the same thing. They've been saying it since 9/11.
And before that 2000.

I hope the world is ending. We are all going to die one day, this seems a much more intriguing way to die then lets say, old age.

Thats fucked up.
I don't want to go down with you.
Qdeathstar
I don't see why it matters.


Shit, if the world was ending imagine the things you could do... steal a fast car, Fly an airplane, jump of a building, storm the white house.... whatever, it wouldn't matter....

The only thing holding the world together is the promise of tomorrow and you can bet that without that the place would go crazy, and that sounds like one hell of an exciting ride...


I'd get me a plane and ride it till it ran out of gas....


Bain
Id probably just chill somewhere.

The world is ending; everything ends. Nothing really matters, and what we do here doesn't even amount to a blink in time. The things we accomplish here on earth are so insignificant that it is hardly to say that anything happened at all. If you were to look at time from the broadest spectrum, our lives, our world, our reality, would have already ended.

The world's not much worse than it was 2 years ago. The economy's been horribly mismanaged, but it just happened that it hit breaking point recently. It's not like a new thing has happened to make it collapse.

I agree. The Apocalypse would be much better than a stroke or heart attack.

Bullshit. The economy comes and goes in waves. I took some college courses in middle school, and my economics prof presented an idea that my generation would face a seriously economically depressed time. And it came true. Unless he was secretly jesus, he saw this coming through a logical progression of events.
Qdeathstar
Well then, nothing in the world has changed since two years ago, has it?

change would be like... acceleration, not speed.

Woohooo looks like Im resigning my contact in '12

Say "bullshit" then write something that agrees with what I said completely...Hrm.
Bain
Well you said 'breaking point' and 'collapse' so I assume he meant that it will rebound and its just in a horrible state currently.
Indy
If anyone, China will revive the world from economic depression.

It didn't "collapse". The housing bubble burst, so the constuction industry had to downsize (a few firms go out of business, existing firms have to fire a few employees), a lot of peoples' credit was horribly damaged by the stupid loans they took out so nobody was getting loans to buy cars, so the car industry had to do the same. And since everyone has less money than before, almost all industries had to downsize (but on a smaller scale than the two I mentioned). This involves closing plants and firing people to stay in business, and some firms just can't stay in the market because nobody wants their stuff on the scale they did before - it's not good, but it's not a "collapse" you can go out right now and get any product or service you want.

My point made sense even if the language was lazy, there's no need to focus in on the holes and pick them apart when it makes no difference to the overall meaning.

Hell no, the fact that China's economy is so much based on export to nations that have been hit hard will mean that China will be hit even harder, it's just that because the PRC controls everything in that country, you'll never see the truth with regards to how bad it will get in China. That's why everyone thinks things are going so rosy/awesome in that country, cos that's all they keep telling everyone else.

No because you weren't of the Aryan race. Except for the brits who he claimed were just a branch of the aryan race inferior only to the germans.

So he wanted to kill us even though both the leaders of Canada and the US visited him for lunch in Germany? Doubts. And we were still more British back then than we are now.

In cold, jingoistic terms, Britain's defence of the Jewish ehtnicity was an act of national charity. Sure it was buoyed by aggressive declining-empire inadequacy and funded by American military power, but no less it makes Israeli trolling of Britain pretty hilarious. In the most right-wing, "might makes right" terms: You would be dust without "us".

And crazy Zionists finding a way to get acetone out of chestnuts.


Interesting little read there...

Israel came from a chestnut. Cool story bro.
