"The system is too broke to fix, and it's too early to shoot the bas*****."

    "History offers even more sobering warnings: Armed confrontation usually occurs around the climax of Crisis. If there is confrontation, it is likely to lead to war. This could be any kind of war – class war, sectional war, war against global anarchists or terrorists, or superpower war. If there is war, it is likely to culminate in total war, fought until the losing side has been rendered nil – its will broken, territory taken, and leaders captured.” – The Fourth Turning – Strauss & Howe -1997



    It's been said, "The system is too broke to fix, and it's too early to shoot the bas*****." But some American knuckleheads will think it's no longer too early, no matter who wins this election.

    I only heard of a book , recently written called , 'The Black Swan', this morning. It is about a complete outsider coming in and taking the Presidency and what could happen . It appears prophetic and lots of people over here are talking about it.



    'Maverick thinker Nassim Nicholas Taleb had an illustrious career on Wall Street before turning his focus to his black swan theory. With its revolutionary examination of the impact of highly improbable events, thisNew York Times bestseller took the world by storm. Not all swans are white, and not all events?no matter what the experts think?are predictable. Every so often, one of these unpredictable events occurs and has an immeasurable impact on the world?such as 9/11. Taleb argues the problem is that humans focus too much thought on what they already know, and not enough on what they don't. The trick is understanding how to deal with black swans when they appear, and how to benefit from them.

    Witty and irreverant, The Black Swan holds the power to change?for the better?the way people think about the world. It is unlike any book ever written, and its groundbreaking arguments are lucidly articulated by narrator David Chandler.'
