A LIFE IN DICHOTOMIES
If were a smart people we would know that the choices we are making today are just as bad as the choices we have been making for over thirty years, these choices have brought us to the point of brink, To a point of no return, it will take a miracle, if there were a god!
Over the last hundred years we have been advancing , and now in the twenty first century, the United States and the world are looking at a great decline and no one seems to have an answer.
Well may be the media, the talk radio, the public, the politician even the professors and the president agree on one and the only one solution finally, finally! and it is called finger pointing.
Many years ago I had mentioned that the new technologies are creating just as many problems (if not more) as they solve.
For instance we have rechargeable batteries to power our hand tools, the tools and there batteries have become throwaways polluting the environment and filling up the landfills with poisons as well as trash and plastics etc. We have not cured many illnesses but prolonged the death.
The decline of the United States has not happened over night, it was coming for years and I kept warning, writing, pleading but no one was listening. The fiscal decline has its roots in the moral decline and I have addressed this in many articles in this space.
The decline in education similar roots we want the kids educated but then we distract them with the internet, the cell phones the cars and for some the athletics even.
Today we are at a crossroads, our country is not just morally dead, we are economically dead too. Is there salvation, I do not believe so. Everyone is scared and trying to save their own butt, and we are about to sink collectively. But being from the third world that I am I see the parallels, that is not the subject here what we are coming in to is.Can the economy be saved? Can the country be saved? Is there a solution?
The answer is an emphatic NO! All we have done so far is to buy time, as I said in September 2008 the fall will continue and we can not stop it, Bernanke can not stop it. it like a four legged table with all the legs cut off as you support one end the other three fall.And the people, even the "professionals" don't know whats going on, and where the fix is, remember it was the professionals who managed your 401Ks into nothingness. It was the professionals who lost the money in your state retirement and education trust funds, it was the professionals who allowed the government to clean out your social security lock box, it is the professionals who don't know whether we will have inflation or deflation.
LIFE IS A GAME OF CONNECT THE DOTS, IF YOU DON'T CONNECT ALL THE DOTS OR DON'T CONNECT THEM IN THE RIGHT ORDER YOU NEVER GET THE PICTURE
