So here we are once again in the first days of a new year in this once formerly mighty empire and I can't help but get this off my chest. I'm no
economics major, I manage to barely get by these days off the smarts of a long dead president...by the way thank you FDR...And I have some gripes to
The sadness was nearly overwhelming this holiday season. bad health can do that to the strongest. But I at least managed to stay out of the hospital
over the holiday season thank God. But my main point in this is this....
I will give you a solid copper penny for your thoughts on the world economy. I think all hope for a prosperous and happy 2012 is gone with Tuesdays
wind. why? Well several things come to mind. One is the realization that indeed the empire is slowly crumbling around me. I see it in the condition of
the former glistening cities once spotless and the buildings the envy of every other nation now falling apart, trash piles up along roadsides,
meanwhile, a record number of people are on food stamps, and new records for decline are being set it seems every week.
What can we do really? When an empire has reached the very pinnacle of success, and yet that same empire fails to recognize with each and every grab
for an ever bigger brass ring that it nails in one more in top of the coffin lid. When we as a nation fail to check our ever increasing lust for more
and more money for not only our work but our products other less "shiny" empires might figure out a way to undercut us, like offering 1/2 cent for
your thoughts instead. Happy New Year America....We made our bed and now it's time to lay down.
