It's (almost) July 4th, hence the inevitable question: What Makes America Different? Conveniently, just this morning, Camacho-in-chief prepared a ready answer. The question on the table is what to do when the President goes off his meds on an ever-more frequent basis:

In the days before July 4th Independence Day, the inevitable question - what makes America different? The content of the article in no way answers the question. However, the title itself does - hubris. That's what makes America different at this point in time. Because for starters, no other country in the world asks such an asinine and megalomaniacal question. The question should be posed as - what made America different? And was that "exceptionalism" sustainable, or was it a function of transitory historical factors such as the WWII "dividend", and the all-important reserve currency unlimited line of credit? As someone who has spent half their life in Canada and half in the U.S., I will start by answering the original question in the most constructive way possible - what made/makes America different is its entrepreneurial spirit. However, that same entrepreneurial drive has been systematically bilked and monetized by global corporations and the so-called "deep state" of oligarch-owned political parties that acts on corporate behalf. Now compliments of the 'Citizens United' Supreme Court ruling, without any campaign funding impediment whatsoever.
"We successfully borrowed our way out of a debt crisis".
The indefinite collapse hypothesis is politically universal:
What is most sadly ironic at this latent asinine juncture, is the political dysfunction in the U.S. which ignores the fact that both "sides" are pretending to have all of the answers, while neither side has any questions. It's hubristic deadlock with neither side willing to blink and finally admit the honest truth - "ok, we're fucking clueless".
