a: United States ~
b: a 375-pound-middle-aged man

What:

"The United States is a bit like a 375-pound, middle-aged man with a heart condition walking down a city street at night eating a Big Mac. He's sweating profusely because he's afraid he might get mugged. But the thing that's going to kill him is the burger."

a: United States Empire ~
b: alcoholic

What:

"Though, like the alcoholic who does not realize his condition until he is lying face down in the gutter, it may be a while before we get out of the empire business and start looking out again, as our fathers did, for the American republic first. But that day is coming."

Us And The World As Japanese Style Slowdown

b: Japanese economy

a: United States Congress ~
b: Employees who embezzle from their employer

What:

In theory the Congress is elected to represent the interest of those who elected them. When looking district by district, this is often the case. But taken as a whole the people with the most power are open for business to whom ever has the most money and the most influence. Slowly but surely the whole of the US house and Senate are bought and paid for. They have to watched constantly because they have no ability or willingness to actually do the right thing. No one is watching, so they steal steal and steal even more and they do so with a smiling face and subservient attitude.
