How can one not be discouraged as we see our country slowly (?) losing its influence and respect around the world. There is talk of dropping the dollar as a reserve currency, the russians become bolder and feel no need to even discuss anything with us, the chinese too get bolder and bolder encroaching over disputed territory with Japan. It wouldn’t surprise anyone if they didn’t make further advances in their claim on Taiwan. Even dinky countries like egypt, libya and afganistan hold us hostage or totally ignore us to our detriment both diplomatically and economically.
This situation call all be laid at the feet of this incompetent administration.
I don’t post much any more as it has become so depressing to think about how far we have fallen since my generation of liberal social workers took over.
