Guns, Gold and Beasts of Burden!
I don’t appreciate is the “Doom and Gloomers” proclaiming that we need to buy guns, gold and beasts of burden because we are on a road to a Mad Max like existence. What nonsense is this?! How dare they sell their futures so cheap?! Panic and paranoia run rampant in herds of livestock and people. If enough people start to believe the bologna this "destiny" just might have the energy to manifest it self. Stop it, you know who you are. Don’t make me put you in time out.
As we all know bad news sells. God knows the evening news lives on the stuff, ask Don Henley. Imagine today with twice the unemployment and a dust bowl choking the Great Plains. That was the situation seventy five years ago. Even then we did not have the decay in society that I see forecast in the articles and blogs of today. The best way I know to help people out of this situation is to be a cheer leader. Tell them to study the markets of the great depression, and those investors that came out of it stronger. It is time to put those lessons into action, and reap the rewards, not the whirlwind.
Take a breath. Close your eyes. Find your happy place. This will get better. Zombies are not going to eat your brain. Raptors are not going to feed on your intestines. Godzilla is not going to battle Cloverfield in your living room. Dustin Hoffmann and Warren Beatty are not planning on making Ishtar 2. And Tina Turner is not going to make you duel in Thunder Dome.
