A Moment Please

Let's go down this road instead.


May I ask that we take a moment from our busy day, cast our eyes and minds outward and upward, and ask the Big Being of our choice that this remain a matter of history and not become a current event?

I don't believe in a Big Being but I'm hoping so hard things get better it almost kinda feels like praying.

It's hard to watch your life savings dwindling more every day. Yikes. And we're lucky enough to HAVE savings to dwindle in the first place. I worry about those already on the edge.

Hope works, too, Crabby. It must be anm awful feeling of powerlessness to have this happen.
I think it'll get better,but I think it'll worsen first.

I know. Grapes of Wrath was my fave book as a kid (I was a weird kid) ...it is scary out there.

here's hoping my G-d of choice is watching and she's got something great in the works...

Leah J. Utas said...

MizFit, I like to think She's on it.

I don't have a Being either, but I am a firm believer that what goes down must come back up again. That's not even a question, it's an economic truth.

The scary part is that we don't know where the bottom is yet. So we have no way of knowing when this might start to come back up again.

I know we have to hit bottom first and I'm pretty sure we haven't yet.
That bit is terrifying.

Hopefully the challenges make us stronger. Thank you for sharing!

Leah J. Utas said...

I certainly hope so, M.

Too many countries have lent too much money to the States to let them go under that badly. I think the bank president that let the bank fail, should be forced to give back half of his salary for the last ten years and all of his bonuses for that period of time - clearly he didn't earn them.

I also think the big stock brokers who sit in their million dollar houses with their money securely squirreled away should have to bail out their own houses. Why should the tax payers have to pay for their f-ups?

That or the world has to just readjust the value of gold back to something realistic and start again. Make a dollar, worth a dollar and make pricing reflect that. Hit that great big "reset" button on the economy.

Hm, I wasn't going to do a post today...sorry!

Leah J. Utas said...

You can post in my comments section any time you please, Reb.
If there was a reset button I'd be itching to press it myself.
Meanwhile the rich fellows who raked it in while banks failed ought to have all that bonus money taken away.
The poor get poorer and the rich give them the finger.
