This blog began 14 years and 3 months ago, and we are now up to the 400th post. Monthly hits now number about 90,000; the total for those 14 years is nearly 5 million. Clearly, we are poised to take over the world. Can you imagine a Waferworld, where decency and integrity prevail? It's an inspiring thought.

Modesty aside, this is clearly the greatest blog in the universe. We soldier on, through thick and thin, pursuing the truth no matter where it leads. Occasionally I hear of people going to other blogs, and I just shake my head. Why in the world would anyone do such a thing, when this blog has it all? I remain completely baffled.

I predicted the demise of America in the Twilight book, 20 years ago, and now it is upon us. The country will look radically different by 2030, and it's not going to be pretty. Of course, Americans are not very bright, so many of them believe the situation can be turned around. Which I have likened to trying to turn around an aircraft carrier in a bathtub. It just ain't gonna happen, as all of you know. The US was founded on faulty premises (hustling), and now the chickens are coming home to roost. The man in the White House is the consummate hustler, fully representative of Americans' deepest aspirations. The spiritual goal of the Middle Ages--salvation--has been replaced by secular salvation, i.e. money: to live in a big house, drive a Mercedes, own a private plane, and drink $20,000-bottles of wine. An empty life, a stupid life, and what almost all Americans think life is about. Pretty thin fare, when you think about it.

O lente, lente currite noctis equi! Tick tock, time is running out. Meanwhile, let all 172 of us celebrate the GBOE--Greatest Blog on Earth. America will go down the drain, but what we stand for will endure forever. It always has.
