America, we weep for you. Our culture is taken over by anime cartoons in pink panties. Our people loll on the soft bosoms of government employees. Our weak, effete liberal establishment is applying the feather pillow to every strong, true American. All that is left is Armageddon. Waiter, another espresso, please. And send my bill to Mr. Steyn.

The concensus is that President Obama is a liberal. He was able to track down and kill Osama bin Laden and was instrumental in seeing that Ghaddafi was ousted as dictator of Libya. George W. was so ineffective in chasing bin Laden that he was forced to declare that he was no longer relevant after declaring him the number one enemy. These are not the actions of an effete man.

I was being ironic. Perhaps I misread your comment. : - )

And that is really the crux of the problem isn't it? Common sense dictates that redistributing wealth from future generations to the present is pure folly. Now there can really be only two explanations for such patently irresponsible behavior by our leaders in Washington. These politicians are either completely ignorant of basic economic principles or are pursuing these destructive policies deliberately in an attempt to bring down the country. Personally I think both of these groups are well …

An insightful book where American policies are mentioned throughout the book for anyone interested. Although I've only began to read the book midway, it's really disconcerting to read the writer's disapproval of President Obama so publicly. America may be a land of free speech but it has always bothered me when its people could speak and ridicule the President with so much disrespect.    So, while I may agree with the author with some of the events, I do not agree with his tone …

Optimistic About America’s Future?
Don’t Be.


In his giant New York Times bestseller, America Alone: The End of the World as We Know It, Mark Steyn predicted collapse for the rest of the Western World. Now, he adds, America has caught up with Europe on the great rush to self-destruction.

It’s not just our looming financial collapse; it’s not just a culture that seems on a fast track to perdition, full of hapless, indulgent, childish people who think government has the answer for every problem; it’s not just America’s potential eclipse as a world power because of the drunken sailor policymaking in Washington—no, it’s all this and more that spells one word for America: Armageddon.

What will a world without American leadership look like? It won’t be pretty—not for you and not for your children. America’s decline won’t be gradual, like an aging Europe sipping espresso at a café until extinction (and the odd Greek or Islamist riot). No, America’s decline will be a wrenching affair marked by violence and possibly secession.

With his trademark wit, Steyn delivers the depressing news with raw and unblinking honesty—but also with the touch of vaudeville stand-up and soft shoe that makes him the most entertaining, yet profound, columnist on the planet.
