State of the World? State of America?

So there's a practical genocide happening in Darfur, America is still looking for a reason to attack Iran, we're still in Iraq and Afghanistan -- even though a definite majority of the country no longer thinks we should be in either, and now we've angered Russia enough that they have pulled out of a treaty established quite some time ago.

Now i'm sure that at some point in almost everyone's life, they have thought that the world is going to shit. But is it just me, or do we have a better claim than most generations that that's the case? Hell, there was even a German holocaust survivor who moved back to Germany, because as he put it: "I've seen this before."

All this is going on in the world, and it really feels like we're powerless to do anything about it. Our president is making things so that he can take almost complete power of the country if the right situation arises -- and who's to say that it won't be something like Loose Change 2?

The theory goes that 1.20.09 is Bush's last day in office, but considering some of the bullshit that has already been done during his term, as much as i want him gone, i'm kind of thinking he'll find a way to stick around. And i'm about as devout of an atheist as you can be, but God i hope that doesn't come to happen.
