The Road

Post-apocalyptic movies such as The Road and The Book of Eli give me an eery feeling that I am watching the future of the United States.

I don’t know if we can undo the damage that Obama has wrought.


Economists peddling dire warnings that the world’s number one economy is on the brink of collapse, amid high rates of unemployment and a spiraling public deficit, are flourishing here.

The guru of this doomsday line of thinking may be economist Nouriel Roubini, thrust into the forefront after predicting the chaos wrought by the subprime mortgage crisis and the collapse of the housing bubble.

“The US has run out of bullets,” Roubini told an economic forum in Italy earlier this month. “Any shock at this point can tip you back into recession.”

But other economists, who have so far stayed out of the media limelight, are also proselytizing nightmarish visions of the future.

D. emails: For pity’s sake, lad! Is it too great a task for you to learn how to correctly spell “eerie?” It’s not a fair-dinkum big word, and it’s certainly not obscure. Your pathetic — and ill-conceived— little arguments that the current U.S. President is leading to us to Armageddon’s door would carry more weight if you didn’t present them with misspellings … you bloody, c*cksucking, still-lusting-after-Wayne-Cherry little ponce! Use spell-check, or, better, buy a dictionary. And, while you’re at it, replace my fair-dinkum Bubble Puppy record that you ruined by using it as a tea tray during one of your numerous youthful moments of gender confusion. You have no idea of the loathing you inspire in me.

>Thank you!

Your thanks mean nothing to me, Sunny Jim. You can’t spell, your views are merely the parroted musings of idiot radio ponce Dennis Prager and YOU GAVE YOUR MUM CANCER! Know this and know it well, my little Joey, one day — when you least expect it — fate will put our two paths at a junction. And at that moment, I’ll dispense some fair-dinkum justice. I’ll walk away. Rest assured that you won’t. Know it and believe it, you reptilian little bitch.
