One of the best explanation I've seen that shows the problem is far from being over.

It keeps our eye on the housing foreclosure crisis. No matter what happens 09 will have more foreclosures than 08.

Move along folks----nothing to see here!

I always think these doomsday spin stories where the writer takes some natural cycle and presents a very worse case outcome is because the writer needed an easy target that day and didn't have any better ideas. Having said that, I wouldn't be at all suprised to see some kind of nation-wide collapse in the electrical distribution system set off by solar flares or a fire in a junction box in New Jersey or three teenage vandals at a power platn in Idaho. It's the inter-connected ... More »

It was very good in that it showed there are a number of different factions involved in the war. Just like every attack in Iraq was labeled "al Qaeda" in Afghanistan it's "Taliban." In reality there are several different groups who participate in these attacks..

I'm still climbing the learning curve about the financial collapse and this article helped with sort of a simplified summary of some of the major issues. The more I learn about it the more I find myself spiraling down the rabbit hole until I finally find myself in a little Norwegian seaside city that has just gone bankrupt because in far away United States of America sleaze-bag realtors and their pocket-stuffing buddies in the banking industry had no problem with convincing idiot Americans they could live beyond their financial means with no consequences.

There's no doubt that the US has allowed uncounted billions of dollars to be stolen from the Iraq war funding. There are so many reports from all sorts of media and still it goes on. Wave the flag, steal the money and accuse whoever questions you of treason. Uncle Sam done drank Mr. Cheney's Kool-Aid and we will all have to suffer the consequences.

This story shows that there is no easy exit from a mistake of this magnitude. I would have liked more information about the Soviet Army books. The USSR shared a border with Afghanistan and were absolutely ruthless in their battles with the Afghans, yet they lost. America is going to fight two wars at the same time 10,000 miles from our borders and win? Dream on neocons.

The big picture this article shows is how corrupt this government has become. Also how paranoid. Strange days indeed.

This story gave me the most information I've seen about what's going on in Tibet. Mob mentality can really get ugly regardless on which side of the political spectrum it's coming from.

To quote from the article -- "misgivings that the summit would be little more than a photo op arranged by an outgoing U.S. president whose policies have failed across the Middle East." He hasn't done anything else right -- why would anyone in their right mind think Bush is capable of solving the major problem in the entire Mideast?

I used to think I was one of the few people who was totally sick of the xmas shopping mania but lately the blessed virus seems to be spreading throughout the land. I caught the anti-xmas consumer madness virus from years of having to work in retail stores at Christmastime. Rev. Billy and his Church of Stop Shopping is right on -- you don't need half the stuff you already got. Give some of that stuff to someone at Christmas. They'll be happy to get something for nothing and you'll be happy to get rid of some of the junk that's plugging up your life and consciousness.

I would have liked more examples of exactly which companies were being dropped and why.

I have no doubt in the years to come they will be able to discover a number of Earth-like planets orbiting stars throughout our galaxy. But figuring out a way to cross the vast reaches of space to get there -- aye...that's the rub!

I was looking for an explanation of exactly how an oil company will go about extracting the methane and processing it for power. I think the story was a bit lacking in that aspect but it is a very interesting story neverless.

I think it's a very good story because it shows exactly what we've become. To quote from the story: If we were to judge the US by its penal policies, we would perceive a strange beast: a Christian society that believes in neither forgiveness nor redemption. Really all these bogus Christians that are running this country are revealing their true beliefs. Instead of "turn the other cheek" it's now "turn over the other hand and show the electric cattle prod."
