    I personally think the American population...for the most part...is more fragile than at any time in our history.

    We have become a fat, lazy, imbecilic, narcissistic group of breathing matter.

    Food shortages and grid down.

    You'd have national guard patrolling with martial law.

    Extremely fragile. That is why I decided to get into prepping. Things on the horizon don't indicate an improvement.

    Lots of real dumb ideas have been implemented for quick cash for a select few as opposed to decisions being made for the long term standards and stability of the citizens of this Republic. Poor decisions have created a potential house of cards and a whole bunch of special snowflakes that will melt when said house collapses.

    No. The only thing in my opinion (IMO?) that would bring the US to it;s knees would be a pandemic of biblical proportion. We actually handled one of those in 1919 though.

    I don't believe it will happen in my lifetime. My two boys though? They are Uber Screwed!

    Good question. How fragile is the US Economy? Don't know, however it is much more diverse than some others that have taken a hit and have as yet to devolve into total chaos (greece or Venesula).

    Could an attack cause it to collapse? Hell wall street was back up within a week of 9-11. That's not to say that a major attack couldn't happen or that it couldn't be devastating.

    Now a high profile shooting, that could be a definite trigger for certain folks to come up out of thier holes and start major civil unrest to the point that the current idiot at 1600 PA ave could suspend elections indefinitely in the name of public safety and then continue to rule as el presidente for life. That's always been a possibility. Especially with the news that another Close person to the Clinton's has taken a slug. Would not put it past then to target Mr Trump especially if they thought he even stood a chance of winning
