If I could just step in a moment here.

Normally, I could agree with a little of the advice you are giving Masood. However, history is right now being made. Don't be to sure about what might happen under the desperate circumstances of our nation, and the world we live in. Desperate people are filling our populations with ever more desperate people. Something has to give.

When you take a pin to an over-expanded baloon, "stuff" happens. I think it is possible things are out of all human hands. This planet has a lot of freight trains hurling down a lot of tracks. Those in control of the freight trains are getting wilder and wilder (nuts).

We can stick our heads in the sand and pretend everything is just going to be all right, or prepare for realities that present themselves after careful and honest thought.

I don't have any problem wishing you are right. I won't bank on it, though.
