The economy and my thoughts

I find our present financial economy so interesting right now. Listening to the powers that be about this market and where it is at, how it got there, and how to get out of it is so interesting. It isn't as though we all just ended up here blindly and without warning. I find it interesting that the brokers and real estate agents who were making so much money off the economy a few years back are now blaming the president for all of this. So interesting to me is that not one person has stood up and taken responsibility for their own actions in all of this. It really does remind me of a kindergarten class room where when asked who made the mess everybody starts pointing the finger. Are there no grown adults in Washington and abroad who will say, WE took advantage of a people who were already broken and down hearted and now we are paying the price for it? I wouldn't be at all surprised if there isn't more anarchy where houses and credit cards are concerned. Why shouldn't the people who were given mortgages that have now dropped over 100,000 dollars in the last year just walk out on them and never own another home again. I wouldn't trust anyone again either if this were my situation. Why shouldn't those whose lives have been turned upside down by all of this mess not finally say, You know maybe I don't need the government to come up with a bailout plan for my life, why don't I just take matters into my own hands. 
I think there is only more to come where all this is concerned. The powers that be in this country have finally broke us as far their philosophy of bigger better is concerned, and now is anyone thinking about what they want to buy their kids for Christmas? Let's see , I can't wait to go into dept to feed this materialistic monster once again. I highly doubt it!!
I for one am excited that it's broken, our economy was never one that I fully bought into to anyways. I am not saying that I didn't buy into to it from time to time but if I really bought into it well, then I suppose it would be evident by the car I drive and the house I live in.
How about this for a try, contentment.

i personally think that the government planned this all along. but i won't get into the depth of it. from my experience, there is most likely someone watching.

the only other thing i would say is...
"so if we have enough food and clothing, let us be content." 1tim 6:8

I agree with Jami... I think Alex Jones covered this one a while ago. I am happy I have zip in the stock market right now, and I don't think my tax dollars should be paying for this mess. I was sooooo happy that the bailout bill didn't pass today. It needs to fix itself, wall street should not be nationalized, but we are headed there anyway. Crazy. I will be saving my money under the mattress from now on:)

yeah , go to the mattresses!! it's not personal it's business.

jami said...

careful what you say. one day, you'll wake up and your mattress will be gone from right underneath you, along with your life savings and bed bugs to boot.

jami- I should know this by now. Especially after your cable was yanked after mentioning the cable company on here. darn it! now I have to find a new hiding spot!

Good thoughts, Noel. I think our country did need a wake up all. There really was a bubble and no one thought it would break. What goes up must come down!
