About This Blog…

This blog is dedicated to understanding how American exceptionalism morphed into slouching mediocrity over three short decades.   Depending on your perspective, we were either the envy of the world or a bright beacon of hope.  Now we are looking more and more like a banana republic with each passing day.  The problems of, corporate and political corruption,  income inequality, a crumbling infrastructure, as well as general lack of investment in our future, particularly in the sciences and engineering are putting us on the fast track to becoming  a third world nation.  In fact, we may already be there.

Things like this don’t just “happen”.  There were numerous social, political and economic forces at work that accelerated  this spectacular deterioration.  As someone entering my 5th decade on this planet, I look up and barely recognize my own country.
