I’m finding it difficult to write this message today.

This week was another sick celebration of the American way. And all week I have been haunted by this unanswered question…

What is the number? 

You know the number I mean. 

I have always promised to be honest with you, and on this episode of Rumble, I must share some very bad news about what I think comes next — not because I want to scare you, but because it is crucial that we are honest with ourselves right now and I believe you can handle it. You must handle it, because I also believe we can do something about it.

Please listen.

— Mike
