In the 232nd year of its existence, on a cool September day, as the leaves changed, the American empire peaked.
The Great Housing Ponzi Scheme and Greatest Unwinding changed everything.
9/11 was childsplay.
The Iraq Debacle simply sped up the decline.
This, HP'ers, is the real deal. The effects and unintended consequences of today will last for generations. Today, and the past few grotesque years that led up to today, will be written about in history books for the rest of time.
The post-WWII American lifestyle, one of over-consumption and greed, fueled by credit cards, loans, debt and borrowing, and epitomized by a self-centered Clinton/Bush Baby Boom generation out of control, will be radically changed.
You, and your children, and their children, will remember today for the rest of your lives. Whether you understand that now or not.
Everything has changed.
America will never be the same.

The world as you knew it changed tonight. America is not the country you thought it was. And this day will live in infamy.
