Mechanically recovered meat is pink slime, basically you take what’s left of an animal and squeeze it through a fine sieve and then serve it as meat to school children

As long as Soylent Pink isnt made out of people I don't care. Its protein and the little buggers should be thrilled that they're getting something to eat ...

It would seem this decade is not like the last... 

http://libertytactics.com/2012/06/rockefeller-foundation-predicts-13000-dead-at-london-olympics-2012/

In the document, the Rockefeller Foundation ‘predicts’ that the decade of 2010-2020 will be named “The Doom Decade”, because of  a wave of terrorist attacks, natural disasters as well as civil uprisings and financial collapses.

The years 2010 to 2020 were dubbed the “doom decade” for good reason: the 2012 Olympic bombing, which killed 13,000, was followed closely by an earthquake in Indonesia killing 40,000, a tsunami that almost wiped out Nicaragua, and the onset of the West China Famine, caused by a once-in-a-millennium drought linked to climate change.

"The US was a democracy."

... prior to which it was, for a very short period, a republic ... prior to which it was, for nearly one and a half centuries, a relatively free country -- without any central government -- that succeeded in driving out the combined might of the British Empire and the East India Company....
