Spinning out of control?

Is everything spinning out of control?

Midwestern levees are bursting. Polar bears are adrift. Gas prices are skyrocketing. Home values are abysmal. Air fares, college tuition and health care border on unaffordable. Wars without end rage in Iraq, Afghanistan and against terrorism.

Not really sure about air fares. I just booked a night in Cali, round trip direct, rent car, Embassy Suites for $440. Granted it was only one night.

Not bad. I paid $320 a airline ticket back in March taking off at the same airport and landing at the same airport. So, at the very least, I'm getting Embassy Suites and a rent car for $120.

About the same as I was paying in 2002.

My 401K is now a 400K (was 301K)

There was this little thing called the Great Depression. During that period, the entire world went to war...

We haven't had a hard time in a while. That'll straighten us out for sure.

Give me a dollar.

The Mayans were also wiped out by disease, weren't they? Clearly they know everything.

Edit: Although peculiarly enough, some others say the world will end to a Muslim leader that is a great orator. If Obama is elected, his term would end in 2012, which would tie in with the Mayans prediction about the world ending in 2012. (I'm not saying he's Muslim, although his name is a "Muslim" name)
