Where is America headed?

If you have ever wondered about where America is headed? Well look no further than states like California, Illinois and New York buried in a mountain of deficits as far as the eye can see with high unemployment and you will find your answer to Obama's America.

Here is another tale/tale sign of the direction we are heading:

The Last Week: How Lawsuits Doomed an American Icon

You may never have heard of Blitz USA, but if you have a red portable gasoline can in your garage, chances are you own their product.

At its peak, Blitz USA, the 50-year-old producer of three out of every four portable gas cans nationwide, employed 350 people in the small town of Miami, Oklahoma. But over the last decade, a wave of costly litigation took its toll, and lawsuits finally drove the company out of business.

We invite you to click below to watch the short film we recently released by this tragic story, "The Last Week: How Lawsuits Doomed an American Icon."

We the sheeple are certainly to blame; but there is a way out of this mess.

Yes it is!!! Democrats just wished it away and it miraculously disappeared; just like the unemployment rate!

You might be a low information sheeple if you believe that California has solved its deficit problem or that employment is coming back.

Amerika is headed for a war...and not one where everyone can watch it on TV from the safety of their Lazy Boy.

The USA is going to end up screwing everyone with a debt repaid in paper and a war will be...as it always has...the result.

I agree.

History shows us that anytime you put a society in a vice and start turning the screws, really bad things start to happen. Really bad things like war.

Once bills are paid with "the full faith and credit of the United States" as worthless...sure, the debt has been paid but a lot of people, nations and criminal enterprises are gonna be pretty angry. Once no-one will trade with the USA, there will be no choice but war in order to keep driving SUVs around.

First step is to bleed the rich...then tier downwards through the muddle class...then to the poor...then foreign nations. Couple that with inflation and it will be a matter of eating or starving.

This divisive election has pitted (successfully) "those that have" against "those that have because they took it from those that have". When the domestic cookie jar is empty, it'll be "they left our country with all their money so let's go get it".

Hitlers train is going to war???

The train was named Führersonderzug "Amerika" in 1940, and later, Führersonderzug "Brandenburg". After the Balkans Campaign the train was never again used as a Führer Headquarters, but Hitler used it throughout the war when he travelled between Berlin, Berchtesgaden, Munich and other headquarters.

Führer Headquarters - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

America is on this train............

Cat Stevens - Peace Train (with lyrics) - YouTube

Now I've been happy lately, thinking about the good things to come
And I believe it could be, something good has begun

Oh I've been smiling lately, dreaming about the world as one
And I believe it could be, some day it's going to come

Cause out on the edge of darkness, there rides a peace train
Oh peace train take this country, come take me home again

Now I've been smiling lately, thinking about the good things to come
And I believe it could be, something good has begun

Oh peace train sounding louder
Glide on the peace train
Come on now peace train
Yes, peace train holy roller

Everyone jump upon the peace train
Come on now peace train

Get your bags together, go bring your good friends too
Cause it's getting nearer, it soon will be with you

Now come and join the living, it's not so far from you
And it's getting nearer, soon it will all be true

Now I've been crying lately, thinking about the world as it is
Why must we go on hating, why can't we live in bliss

Cause out on the edge of darkness, there rides a peace train
Oh peace train take this country, come take me home again
