Jaime is 90 years old. Grandson Simon is 29 months old. There is a lot of time between their births. But only in some ways. As my wife Bobbi was mentioning last night, this country will be celebrating its 240th anniversary soon. When you stop and think that my uncle has been alive for almost 40% of the time that the United States has existed then we don't seem to be such a long time world power. Even at my age of almost 68 I have been around for over one quarter of the USA's history.
So, one should not feel that this country is necessarily a long term success yet. If we don't curb the power of corporate America it is doubtful the Union can stand. But there is time to remedy that.
