I pray we are still a young and courageous nation, that we have not grown so old and so fat and so prosperous that all we can think about is to sit back with our arms around our money bags. If we choose to do that I have no doubt that the smoldering fires will burst into flame and consume us—dollars and all.
—Lyndon B. Johnson
This was the quote of the day this morning. I guess the USA has grown very old under the Bush regime. I am just hoping that the aging can be reversed, and that the country isn’t about to die of old age.
