McDonalds leaving town is a plus in my book. Hopefully all the fast food grease spots will leave town.

I can't say I disagree from a health perspective, but I think it's a very telling sign that spells out just how dire things are.

Now just for a fleeting moment try and imagine that all the fast food outlets in the entire USofA begin to close down...

Mmmmm......Mmmmmm.....Mmmmmmm... AAAAAAAAAAAAAARGHH!!... NOOOOPE!!!

Try as hard as I can I just can't imagine THAT!! Cool

How do you know when you are living in a failed state?

  • When the jails are overflowing with people and the government is overflowing with criminals
  • When the government says "here, this will save your life" and you suspect they're lying
  • When the government is caught red handed committing mass murder in killing 1,300,000 people from another nation over a "mistake" and nothing is done about it
  • When a nation is attacked by a 9/11 type event and the government refuses to say who the attackers are
  • When the government steals the peoples social security trust fund
  • When a foreigner becomes president
  • When the people are asked to take all risks while private corporations take all profits
  • When there are czars in the whitehouse
  • When debt is said to be credit

Well you and I and a few others are aware that really demonstrates the true problems.

But for most of the brainwashed sheeple many will only notice something is wrong when they can't buy their burgers from the local fast food outlet because it has closed.
