"Remember the American Empire? We were all sort of ambivalent about it, because it meant killing lots of people ... and also sucking away natural resources of other lands while leaving the people who actually owned the resources destitute. On the other hand, American bonds were the surest thing on the planet." [editor's note: He's part-right, but there has never been an "American empire" ... that would be an oxymoron! - SAT] (08/03/11)
