I highly recommend last nights History Channel presentation: Crash: The Next Great Depression?
"This one-hour special looks at the current economic meltdown in the US and compares and contrasts it with what led up to the Great Depression, the 1929 Crash, its immediate aftermath and what helped to bring us out of the Depression. Threading first person accounts with expert interviews, the special lets viewers understand how much history is repeating itself and what does history tell us about our future?"
Than the History Channel thus follows-up with Franklin Delano Roosevelt's Administration and how World War II and a sense of community and common cause pulled the nation out of our first depression. So here American is again, at a cross-roads and another war.
The future is NOT "Drill, Baby, Drill" or invade the Mideast either, but rather "Innovate, Baby, Innovate." That is the only direction that can save our planet and thus save ourselves, as well as our US economy from Big Oil's massive grave-yard plan that is being premeditated for all of humanity. If Obama chooses war with the Mideast - than it is Armageddon as surely the Mideast will acquire nuclear weapons, and NO American citizen will pull with Obama on questionable wars anymore than they did for Bush, but a war with ExxonMobil, BP and all of Western Big Oil Corporations is the ONLY war Americans will pull together on. Obama takes any other road, than we're screwed.
The war is NOT in the Mideast, it is right here on our own home turf, against corporate tyranny.
