Thanksgiving 2011

Thanksgiving 2011  (sorry post in progress to be complete ASAP)

                             - Shakespeare, The Tempest

America is not Prospero, the learned wizard who speaks these lines on the way to effecting a miracle of unification in Shakespeare's Tempest. In recent years America has been anything but prescient in shaping its best future - its zenith - and today America's fortunes will indeed ever after droop. The unravelling of American politics will continue unabated; the nation will drift towards anarchy and thence to the status of a police state. It's now or never.
