A much different kind of Shock and Awe

The next several weeks are liable to be a time of great stress as these realities become increasingly undeniable. I imagine the public chatter will become increasingly delusional as the wave crests. When it it finally comes, the shock of recognition that we are a bankrupt nation will present itself at first as a great silence. The public's collective jaw will fall open, but no sound will come out. That will be the true moment of shock and awe.
Bingo. Jim gets the prize.

I've already seen The Drop in the Collective Jaw.

Highly recommended.
