I have no doubts about that, in regard to our economy. And it will be sooner rather than later, no doubt.
There's way too big of a hole dug as to the debt our country is in, one that even our unborn grandchildren will never be able to pay back. The US government has policed the entire globe at our expense, yet cannot even police our streets properly, shipped out good paying jobs for minimum wage ones (and not enough of those to spread around), bailed out corporations (one twice) that should have fallen (this is why we have bankruptcy laws on the books, for a "fresh start", I know this firsthand).
The net is not really a big deal to me, I like it, as it allows me to kill time while I'm sitting around with nothing to do. It, along with other technology, has improved over the years, and will probably continue to do so. But it's a luxury to me, not a necessity, if I really needed to, I could live without it. I didn't even own my very own computer until 2000, at the age of 37.
It's going to soon be the end of the world as we know it, that concerns me deeply. Our earnings, many of us have had no raise for years (those of us fortunate to have an income), while gas, food and auto/health insurance, medical costs (the basics) have skyrocketed during the same timespan.
It cannot and will not sustain at this rate, this country (and others) are headed for bankruptcy, and soon. It's going to be bad for everyone, there will be no avoiding it.
Plus, the NWO is a reality. Who knows what path that will lead us down?
We're in this one for the long haul.
