I had a thought today and I should put it into some sort of story, but I have enough writing on my plate at the moment.
In the next fifty years, America will be much poorer than it is currently. But we'll still have lots of nuclear weapons. Other countries, who will be rich like we are now, will tell us that we're not allowed to have nuclear weapons, the way we tell poor people they're not allowed to have nuclear weapons. And by that point, our president will either A: have a sex tape or B: one of those XXX jugs as his running mate.
That'll end well, right?
