Thank you kindly for taking the time to have a look but if you really want to see...click full view :peace:

As the fools in Washington try to decide which side they are on...Democrat or Republican...the United States budget sits in limbo with "dooms day" fast arriving. We have a national debt of 14,550,224,888,973 www.usdebtclock.org/ and rising by the second as these buffoons make merry on our dimes. I suppose their solution will be to sell off national treasures like this one, the Empire State Building, to make book. That's considering that they haven't already sold it so that they can continue to finance their vacations in Washington D.C.

Excellent shot. You've got to know that "they" have us all by the short hairs, and it's never been any different. Our freedom was a brief blip, a bump in the road, it lasted from 1776 till 1913. Now humanity heads towards the same filthy quagmire it's always been in. Rule by hereditary monarchs and the rich and powerful. Inbred "bleeders", and arrogant upstarts.

I'm sure I'm on any number of lists. But I've been on those lists since I was a kid anyways. So....

Are you certain that the Empire State Building is not already sold?
I know it is an awful and stressful situation, 14.5 trillions of $, omg! The real issue is to find good and devoted politicians, these days, and to lower the lobbying pressure and power, in my opinion. Lobby rules, politicians are yes-men in our western countries... (always my opinion, though...)
Nice shot and title to illustrate your comment! :nod:

Thank you so much Jo :hug:

Oh, it was just a supposition... To Iranians?
Here, grand hotels, supermarkets and what else don't belong to Canadians anymore.
You are most welcome, Richard! :hug:
