The Dismantling of the US? Nyet!!!!

Just when you thought it was safe to be optimistic.. A Russian professor is predicting the US will dissolve itself within the next two years surrendering to the weight of mass immigration and an "economic and moral collapse." He also predicts the US dollar will soon be worthless and the country is on the brink of it's second civil war. In this scenario, California will become the center of the California Republic, mostly under the influence or control of the Chinese. Texas will form the center of the Texas Republic which will largely under the influence or control of Mexico. The New York/Washington D.C. area will form the nucleus of Atlantic America (Yanks and Sox fans living together?), which could eventually join the EU. Canada is expected to annex the Central North American Republic and Alaska will fall under the rule of Mother Russia (much to Joe Six-Pack's dismay). Japan also gets the last laugh by taking over Hawaii. This guy is for real and he is getting handjobs galore at the Kremlin which has been drumming up this type of anti-American crap to levels not seen since the Miracle on Ice. What's scary is more and more people are taking this guy seriously. I see some major flaws in this guy's thinking, most notably that we will endure a second civil war. Americans have become too complacent and lazy to mount any sort of real offensive that takes them, say, outside of their front yard. Boris also neglects to address the fact that this new Divided States of WhatUsedToBeAmerica would, by definition, destroy the NFL, and there's no way we'd allow that to happen. I know times are tough. But America is still the leader of the free world. If the US could survive the Bush Administration, we withstand this guy's doomsday prophecy. The one argument he makes that I do kinda agree with is that Obama is not a miracle worker. For the US to truly rise to greatness again, we need to start making changes in our own lives for the betterment of the masses (even the asshole down the street with a Bush/Cheney '04 bumper sticker). Obama cannot create miracles, but he can inspire people to do that which they would not ordinarily do. Hope is much harder to create than fear, and far more powerful.

I don't disagree that Boris is off his rocker - though I wouldn't mind a return to three divisions per conference, didn't like it when it was announced, don't like it now - but nothing is more powerful than fear.

I read an article on this guy's predictions. If he had a clue about American culture or the fundamentals of our society he might be better equiped to make such claims, but his obvious lack of comprehension of what America and Americans are all about rendered his ideas void.

As long as there's still beer, porn, and the NFL in the United States, I doubt if we'll see the apocalyptic unrest Professor Badinov is fantasizing about.

Remember, since we're a global village now, it's in the rest of the world's self-interest to keep us ugly Americans from descending into chaos.

In spite of ourselves, I think we'll muddle through somehow. After all, we didn't vote for the McPalins, did we? If President Obama is able to keep some of his promises (let's be realistic, boys and girls--Dubya left us a helluva mess to clean up), we won't see another Republican elected into office until they start acting like, well, Republicans, and no racist, bible-quoting nutjobs.

Please excuse me, it's time to watch the Eagles get beat.

Russians tend to be as insular and ill informed about the rest of the world as Americans. It can be quite entertaining.
