First World Problems. Soon we’re going to be dealing with survival. We assume that because we have so much liberty, so many privileges, so much prosperity and have had such a strong military that all these things were simply handed to us, that they will automatically be here forever. Nothing could be farther from the truth, as so many powerful nations have discovered. Usually, the end of the nation or that quality of life, when it comes, is rapid after a long, gradual decline.
As is typical, Europe is our warning but we keep ignoring the red alert. http://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/262093/how-immigration-reform-would-re-form-america-michael-cutler
Obama excels at mocking his opposition and at retaining the MSM adoration. At everything else, especially national security and foreign policy, he sucks to a degree I would never have thought possible in America. http://nationalinterest.org/blog/the-buzz/americas-air-supremacy-fading-fast-15458
This has been bubbling below the surface for a while, completely ignored by MSM. Same problem as 2008 housing bubble: Government [primarily Clinton through Carter’s CRA] forces lenders to give low cost or interest free auto loans to people who really can’t afford them and wouldn’t qualify for the credit to purchase a car. The gov’t charges illegal racism if lenders don’t oblige. The buyers, who are subprime credit risks, create a huge bundle of subprime loans on which many will default, leaving the lending banks/credit unions holding the bag. Since the gov’t partially guarantees these loans, the banks and taxpayers will ultimately bear the losses. Voila! An auto bubble bursts, with the MSM and the Obama gov’t blaming the banks/credit unions. http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20160314005687/en/Fitch-U.S.-Subprime-Auto-ABS-Delinquencies-Hit
