It's the End of an Empire sale and everything must go
by Lewis Black



http://rawstory.com//news/2008/Lewis_Black_Weak_dollar_...

Comedian Lewis Black is dismayed by the number of American landmarks that have been falling into foreign hands due to the country's economic problems. In a segment on Tuesday's Daily Show, Black complained that "America's gone from a beacon of hope to a beacon of insane deals. It's the End of an Empire sale -- and everything must go!"

"We're so hard up for cash, we're dismantling America and selling it for scrap," Black lamented. "The Chrysler Building -- going once, going twice, sold. Abu Dhabi bought the skyscraper for $800 million."

3. They're going to tear down the Chrysler Building?
Hadn't heard that one yet. Holey smokes! What value would that have? That is sad.
