StoneSoup Posted June 11, 2015 Report Share Posted June 11, 2015 America on its death bed: http://www.theonion.com/article/experts-say-best-option-now-keeping-nation-comfort-50617 WASHINGTONâ€”Saying there were no other options remaining and that continued intervention would only prolong the nationâ€™s suffering, experts concluded Tuesday that the best course of action is to keep the United States as comfortable as possible until the end. According to those familiar with its condition, the countryâ€™s long, painful decline over the past several decades has made it clear that the most compassionate choice at this juncture is to do whatever is possible to ensure America is at ease during its last moments. â€œWe need to accept the fact that the U.S. doesnâ€™t have longâ€”simply helping it pass that time in comfort is the humane thing to do,â€ said economist Danielle Martin, speaking on behalf of a large group of experts ranging from sociologists and historians to lawmakers and environmentalists, all of whom confirmed they had â€œdone everything [they] could.â€ â€œAttempting to stabilize the country in its current enfeebled state would not only be extremely expensive, but it would also cause unnecessary agony as it enters this final stage. With how hard the nation is struggling to perform even basic functions, letting it meet its end naturally is the merciful decision here."
