I have a company, and I've got to think about that. I'm trying to do my best there, and that's a much harder task. We recycle as much as possible, and we conserve. But I've always been one to save everything - I even walk up stairs on the very inside or the very outside to not wear out the tread.
The scary thing is a dramatic erosion of American position in the world - its economic, military position, as well as America's influence.
