The Chosen One gave a big ol' speech to all those fellow Muslims in Cairo. One again it was a bag full of nothingness. He is getting closer and closer to admitting he is a Muslim. One thing did come out. He is using all three of his names over there. Barack Hussein Obama. All three. I only heard all three of my names when I was in trouble. Coincedence?
Man, this new job is a far cry from the facility maintenance and construction work I have done for the last 27 years. Not bad just very different. I can build a building or a huge water storage tank or maintain a collossal commercial development or manage groups of people and equipment and now, due to the mismanagement of our nations companies and government, I am mowing yards and working in a grocery store. There are jobs out there but they all require a Degree of one sort or other and I needed a job now not 4-5 years down the road. I am glad for the work though as so many people don't have any work.
Reports have come in that our old friends the Chinese are stockpiling gold and oil as well as putting us over a barrel by purchasing a gajillion dollars of our bad debt. What happens when those benevolent folks call the note due? Wars and conquest demand a lot of dollars and oil. Timmy G. was over there pleading for the Chinese to pretty please buy some more of our crap bonds. The Commies smiled, laughed and said "sure thing Tim". I know this country was in pretty sorry shape when the new administration took office but WTF are they doing to us now? Every day brings a new economic horror story. Did you all take that test I gave the other day and then compare that Communist manifesto to our current situation? Is that an accident or intentional planning?
Put yourself in a better position by paying off every thing you have debt on, socking away a pile of cash that you can can your hands on if needed, learn a few new skills via hobbies. If that is your bent, stockpile whatever you think you need to. Meet your neighbors, talk to the old timers in your town or neighborhood and take comfort in your family.
This is from Samuel Adams: "If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen."
