Its amazing how being at a certain age and place and social consciousness that a common experience and thinking is shared. We all knew that things would always change in time, but its strange to look back and see how that all played out in the aftermath... In some ways, we didn't have a clue, but in terms of the results that we just KNEW would result from three decades of "trickle down" economics and other forms of short sighted policy enacted by people are no longer alive: Here we are!

That's always worked in the past with U.S. deal makers...
American cretins. You can't even write 'they' properly.
And you get REALLY confused when you have to write 'they're', 'their' or 'there'. How the hell is your country still standing?
We stand on our feet, silly.
It's harder to do that while your head is up your ass.
Your obsessing on typos, homophones, homonyms during a Slashdot banter about Brazil nuts and asteroids is either an emotional disorder or you are from the Land of Trolls that can't walk and talk at the same time.
Hurling vituperative disparagements in grammatically correct English has nothing to do with this story and discussion so please take your meds. .
