Bloomberg’s news service recently reported that the rich and famous in Silicon Valley (isn’t that everyone?) are planning to move to New Zealand if the United States starts to look too dangerous for every day life. They feel we are definitely headed in that direction.

New Zealand is an enemy of no one.”
End of the world fantasies are the new favorite topic among the upwardly mobile. Have a bag packed and be ready to go.
