And don't you dare believe anything else. You are an Amerikan! You can do anything. You can build offshore gulags and torture anyone you want to. You can work till you're 50 and retire with a pension and benefits until you're dead! You can be a member of the greatest economy in the world that now is a CONsumer economy and has 12% of its GDP manufacturing "something". We now have become a global parasite using our reserve currency status (look at it as a giant credit card) to have one last fling at the expense of the "developing nations" or as I like to refer to them "our slaves". You can now gorge yourself on cheap GMO food and drive gas guzzling SUVs on cheap gas thanks to your scorched earth foreign policy. You can have 800 military bases in 125 countries and threaten war with Russia for going into Syria at the bequest of the Syrian government to fight terrorists that we trained and equipped.
You can have a press that is owned and paid by seven corporations that daily tell you how great you are and how lucky you are to just have a job and that the 93 million of you little people that have given up looking don't even show up on the people meter. You go ahead and whistle past that graveyard. You go ahead and keep taking your pension that is based on a calculated 8% annualized ROI. You're exceptional.
