Doesn't matter, they will still cost X Euros.

The housing bubble will pop despite the best efforts of the illegal
alien inflows to prop them up, GM and Ford will go bankrupt and dodge
the pensions (that's 500B wiped out alone), interest rates will
rise wiping out those with variable rate mortgages, R&D has already been 
cutback so your kids will not have jobs, India and China both graduate 
more engineering PhD every year then we even have, heath care now 
involves a trip to another country... oh, and that little oil problem.
All of those are absolute certainties.

Every sign, every metric, every historical model says America is done,
and it won't be our turn again for at least 300 years... long past the
singularity in any case, and thus irrelevant.

But, the longer Bush keeps everyone in denial, the more opportunity 
there is in the chaos that results. Woohoo! And don't forget, Jesus will 
save us, so don't worry.
