U.S. Becoming Third World

Interesting story about the Argentinian former first lady who was elected president yesterday. Sound familiar? Was listening to an NPR report on the story this morning and someone from Argentina was quoted as saying how in Latin America power seems to consolidate in the hands of a few and how this made them nervous. Then, I remember reading somewhere a couple weeks ago how the election of Hillary, who seems to be the front-runner, would cement over 20 years of rule by the Bush-Clinton dynasty. And, you wonder why we can't/won't catch Osama bin Laden.

This is precisely why I'm not happy about Hilary's candidacy.

They say that the US inherited the monarchy that England upended many years ago.

We have King George, after all.

We also have more royalty than Great Britain (see the lives of Hollywood actors).

Now, if I'm not mistaken, we're about to crown a queen.
