First time I've taken 3 straight days off the blog, even when on the road, since I started this thing back in July 07. I've pretty much decided to take the weekends off, my little "fasting" for Jesus Christ....not much I know, but I believe you need to clear you head and soul on occasion. So for the foreseeable future, unless something world shaking happens, the weekends will be off limits.
Over the 72 hours, I drank some beer, smoked a couple good cigars, studied the Bible, and watched, read, and listened, to opinions about the coming Market Crash i.e. adjustment. Of course, not necessarily in order of importance.
The Market and the Bail Out failure was good news yesterday...although for how long I don't know. The country is in for a bad run regardless of how and when the new plan is set before Congress. The stock market hacks both in Europe and here in America are gnashing their teeth...you know? Screw em', they are part of the problem, Socialism is not the way to go, and I believe even if we have to pay with a recession or deep depression, in the long run, our children and their kids will be better off. Take a look back at your parents, grandparents, and even great-grandparents that lived through the Great Depression and WW2....tough times require tough people to make tough choices. We are a weak, flabby, society. Europe is worse, and it's time for a reality check.
Would I like to live out my remaining years on the easy path/gravy train? Of course that would be sweet, but I am preparing for something much worse, I think my family, at least, is ready for whatever comes our way. I hope and pray so.
A special thanks to Rubber Faced Nancy Pelosi for "Deep Sixing" the Bail Out. If not for her mindless banter about the GOP and 8 years of bad economic policies, that bloated bailout might have happened....so thanks Nancy, and thanks for the 95 left wing Democrats for voting against it as well....they wanted even more spending payoffs...but whatever works, the bill is dead for now. Those 80% of the American public that didn't want this turkey, needs to keep their powder dry, because it will be back, bigger and even more bloated.
