While we're all busy trying to predict the future of Social Security, Health Care, the rural landscape, and the Evil Empire (and no, I don't mean the New York Yankees), we might just find that the fully loaded Humvee of American capitalism runs into the ditch before it gets within two fill-ups of where we think we're going.
