Maybe the American Empire is about to implode. I sure hope it does it quietly though, I don't like loud noises. I just might go and hang out with Occupy SF on Saturday for something to do.
Occupy SF is going to march around the financial district tomorrow morning about the time I'm arriving for work, that could be interesting :-) When I walked by their encampment in front of the Federal Reserve building on my way to BART this evening I waved at them, there don't seem to be all that many on a cool Tuesday night, but maybe there will be more on Saturday.
Here's a video explaining why the European economy is collapsing, luckily we're wholly owned by the Chinese so we're OKish.
