Let's Keep Things In Perspective



February 01, 2010 – Comments (4)

Our tax receipts are evaporating

Our Cities, Counties, and States are on the brink of bankruptcy

We are laying off hundreds of thousands of workers per week....week after week, month after month

Graduating college students are finding it practically impossible to find a job in their field of study

Massive Debt is suffocating our families, businesses, and municipalities

Politicans and bankers lavish themselves with wonderful salaries, great benefits, and incredible bonuses with borrowed money while the rest of the nation suffers getting kicked out of their homes

Poverty has reached unprecedented levels despite the fact we are running unprecedented deficits

Foreclosures keep rising after continuing to rise following a rise to historically high levels

Commercial real estate is crashing faster than Jim Jones followers at a Kool Aid party


It is not the end of the world, simply the end of a world as you know it.  Say goodbye to  the industrial age and  welcome to the digital age.........where you will have to question every assumption you currently maintain.

The question now is whether we will be forced to face a world war before we get there?????????

China says U.S. arms sales to Taiwan hurt national security

US official: To meet obligation on Taiwan self-defense

France: Tensions between US, China may hinder sanctions on Iran

AHMADINEJAD: 'Iran will deliver telling blow to global powers on Feb. 11'...

Many of us have been living and working in the digital age for quite some time now.  Your colleages are smart, the work is interesting, the hours are good, and the pay is great.

Becareful about what you perceive as the "digital age."

Much of what people currently view as the digital age is primarily support for the industrial age.......

The changes will be massive and convulsive, and the progress be incredible.....but with great change comes great disruption of old systems and most everything we do is for an industrial world....even those who perceive themselves working in the digital age.

The powder keg certainly is primed......Maybe not global war, but certainly a series of civil unrest and revolution.

As long as all the unskilled, uneducated, and unemployed people of the world continue to breed more of the like, there will be no room for them. Most, out of human nature, will have to resort to violent means just to survive. As quality of life decreases war is the only way to decrease the surplus population. Its sad to say, but I don't think you're too far off. Thanks for ruining my coffee
