3rd World 2.0

If you find yourself working for small company, don’t invest in its 401K unless there’s a trustee/outside investment firm managing the funds. http://www.latimes.com/business/la-fi-retire10dec10,0,5286541.story?coll=la-headlines-business

Just another fact (Iraq, Katrina, Pensions, Social Security Trust Fund, Medicare, 401Ks) supporting my claim that the U.S. has become a new generation 3rd world country -- with a great PR campaign and a far too large, unsustainable, good-for-nothing ruling class.

When every promise is replaced by an advertisement and every law is undermined by exceptions, exemptions, greed and fraud, then we live in a 3rd world country, and I will not be surprised to see every street resemble those of New Orleans (lucky) or Baghdad (unlucky) in my lifetime. I call it 3rd World 2.0 – when the tired, bloated, aged and previously deluded nations throw up their hands and admit there was never anything (but a lie/dream) holding it all together anyway.

At that point, it's next stop -- anarchy.
