Everything Is Alive, Everything Is Breathing Nothing Is Dead and Nothing Is Bleeding

Posted in Finances by wusspett on September 23, 2009

A great title to a from a band I’m tired of.  They were proving a point about their own music scene, and making light of it.

I’m sure a lot of people are tired of hearing the same things coming out of the mouth of the media. They throw out phrases like “economic recovery“, “regulation reform“, and “record breaking“.  It’s irksome to sift through all those hype words to try to decide the level of concern one should have.

Well, I’ll tell you the level of concern I have.  On a scale of 1 – 10 (10 = moving to a deserted island, 1 = fat, dumb, and happy), I’m at about a 7; which is more along the lines of investing outside the U.S. currency and avoiding taxes as much as possible.  How about some bullet points?

So, I’m concerned about what our government is doing without our approval, and how public (government) and private (individual) debt is crippling our economy. I’m concerned that the Alt-a and Option ARM mortgages will cause a larger and more catastrophic financial downturn, and that Ben Bernanke will turn to debt (stimulus) once again.

There are good things on the horizon, but none that are fact at this point – and I don’t want to be overly optimistic like the rest of the media.  Now, think about what these policies being introduced by our legislators will cost.  We have spent ourselves dizzy, and we desperately need to stop.  Not only stop, but eliminate what past administrations created.
