The Economy

We are putting our feelers out to see if anyone has a opinion about what direction our economy is moving in.

  1. Ooooooooh! Trick question!

    Pick a direction: You’ll be wrong, but you may be right.

    Here’s a piece of advice: If you don’t have your Blue Ray player yet, you might think about hitting some place like Amazon.com or Best Buy before the shelves are empty. They come from Japan, you know. Although, if you wait, you might get a really hot buy. By hot, I mean radioactive.

    Swell.

    AAA predicts that gasoline prices will drop by summer. I wonder who paid them off?

    Me, I’d think conservatively. It may be time to erase all credit card debt, if any. It’s also prudent to think about digging yourself in for the long haul and not make big financial commitments.

    That said, my opinion is that it is most unwise to predict anything these days. Do the same things under the same conditions and you will end up with wildly contradictory results. It has been this way since at least 1998.

    I will predict one thing: There will be weather tomorrow. That’s about it. Anything else, and you take your chances. This is assuming, of course, that the earth’s atmosphere isn’t ripped away or some other catastrophic event causes weather to disappear. But then, no one will be around to throw rocks at my prediction, will they?

    Still, trillions and trillions. Uhhh. Doesn’t look hopeful for the long run.

    In the end, there are too many scoundrels in control and they’re mighty blatant about not caring that people know they are psychopaths. What can we do about it? Have a revolution? How would that work?

    Then there are those tiny little adjustments the world makes to be more comfortable, like shifting tectonic plates, creating intense storms like hurricanes and tornadoes and hasn’t winter in the United States just been something this year? UPS and the Post Office have had delays in deliveries. In some cases, entire communities have been wiped. Oh, well.

    You know what they say: The rich get richer and the poor get poorer.

    The world is full of so many things we should be as happy as kings, and you know how happy kings are these days.

  2. Thanks for the comment especially a knowledgeable one. It probably would be a good idea not to make any major purchases right now even though I just bought a newish car and moving to a more expensive apartment. I guess like you said that is a chance I had to take. When it comes to Japan I guess I’m just more worried than others because it has already affected our economy here in the US and I do not see any light at the end of the tunnel.
