    I've read a lot lately in American chess magazines, bemoaning the sorry state of American Chess. My message to them..."don't worry about it!" The sad fact is most American's just don't care about chess, so it's no wonder America is not much of a chess power.

    ive always stated it would be better for America in chess as in general if we just recolonized the entire continent, you know, for your own good. think of the benefits, reduced taxation, more socialist outlook, understandable democratic system, the benefits are endless!
