Signs of the times

http://www.sovereignman.com/expat/ei...s-broken-8930/

What is your favorite sign of the times? I can't decide between:

"Inflation in Zimbabwe (3.63%) is lower than inflation in the UK (3.66%, August 2011-July 2012)."

or

"In the land of the free, there are now more than 760 incarcerated inmates for every 100,000 citizens. This is more than 5x the 1980 average, and it far surpasses the number (560 per 100,000) that Stalin threw in the Gulag at the peak of Soviet terror."

ancona and bushi like this.

The latter quote is a product of the "war on drugs". Reminds me of this quote:

But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced nor objectively interpreted -- and you create a nation of law-breakers -- and then you cash in on guilt. Now that's the system...that's the game, and once you understand it, you'll be easier to deal with. ...
