OK folks, here's the deal. This mess we are in is going to get much worse before it gets better. We are in a fourth turning and have yet to hit the crisis. The leaders of this country are still in the delusional phase - California's budget is a good example of that - and I am thinking a civil war in this country is where we are heading. (Makes you think about those Obama/Lincoln comparisons - eh?)
So, All you GenX'ers out there - it is time to start getting your %$^$ together so that when the time comes, we can see this thing through, however it manifests. Get to know some Millennials, read up on dealing with Boomers, and brush up on your survival skills. Make sure you can drop off the grid if need be.
Good luck, and let me know if you have any questions - I sure do.
