It's true that T-N-T needs to diversify it's consumer base, but the U.S. Economy will rebound as usual. Once we drain Iraq for it's oil, and this administration's ideas become law things should straighten. Everyone praises the Clinton administration for lowering the debt when all he did was downsize miltary spending wich in return left us vulnerable to attack. The value of life is another topic. The Reagan Administration (including Bush Sr.) set the tone for the late 90's as far as the economy is concearned. We just hope that the economy turns around under this admin.
