Only about the economy.
Small business people are not seeing any upturn for the foreseeable future.
Some said just today;
"Wait until after the first of the year, you ain't seen nothing yet"
"Large businesses such as Lowes and Home Depot are going out of business soon, they're dead, more employees than customers"
"A bank foreclousure auction last Saturday sold some lots at 30 cents on the dollar for what they were owed"
"I haven't had a single customer for over two weeks" - concrete and rock sales
"$50 billion, where did that money go?"
"There's no jobs, everything has gone overseas"
"No one is buying a new car"
"My wife had over $200,000 in a retirement account in the stock market, over half of it is now gone"
"Prime cattle is bringing 80 cents a pound, I paid $2.50 for a pound of ground beef yesterday"
"It's the worst I've seen in my life"
No Merry Christmas cheer, just concern of what tomorrow will bring.
Everyone mentions the crooks in government and finance that got us to this point but no one is offering any solutions. They don't have any.
We rant and rave about what's going on but that's it.
The controlling powers are getting us where they think they want us but I'm thinking that if we go down, they go down with us. That's when the real change will occur and we recreate our society. It won't be easy and probably not peaceful.
The focus needs to be on the solutions.
Do you have any that are viable?
If you do, speak out. We've got to start working together on solutions.
Everyone needs help and ideas are the first step.
As my good friend said "You ain't seen nothing yet."
I have heard a thing in nature
very strange to see,
and this involves a mouse.
A most certain kind of mouse;
I do mean 'un.'
Most certainly, it is 'un,'
but I digress.
Back to this mouse.
The mice all come together
with a weak one in the center,
and they squeal.
A most painful, high pitched squeal.
The one found in the center soon expires.
Unlike the weak hen
in the yard,
it is not pecked.
Without a single, solitary mark
the mouse expires.
There are people in the world
not unlike this mouse -
or should I say, these mice.
I am very glad to say
that I am not
