The Future Looks Very Bright.....



February 02, 2010 – Comments (4)

But the present will be very convulsive for many as we close out the Industrial Age.......a large number current jobs and businesses will be obsolete in just a few years........

You will not need nearly as many shopping centers, offices buildings, homes, automobiles, cities, counties, schools, universities, hospitals, nursing homes, lawyers, architects, accountants, etc.........

You can either view it as shutting down.....or setting the foundation for a very bright future.

Haiti food convoy attacked; UN warns of volatility

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti – Twenty armed men blocked a road and tried to hijack a convoy of food for earthquake victims, but were driven off by police gunfire, U.N. officials said Tuesday.

The attack on the convoy as it carried supplies from an airport in the southern town of Jeremie underscored what the United Nations calls a "potentially volatile" security situation as frustration has grown at the slow pace of aid since the Jan. 12 earthquake.

Ummm, sure Alstry.  It's hard not to chuckle at your thought process when you make statements like this.  Reality doesn't seem to be a part of whatever analysis you've done to come to this conclusion.

You're right Al, a population of unskilled, uneducated, voodoo worshiping people who have deforrested their land and ruined what little arable acreage they had to begin with, and no real infrstructure or industry to speak of, sounds like a bright future to me. Hey, they could really use an "oracle" right about now. Why don't you rally up your "pals" at West Point and the White House and maybe your "buddy" Roubini" and go lead them to the Utopian Age of Al. Just sayin'  maybe your "Sage Vision" could be better  optimized. How's this for a slogan- "Haiti, Battered with Blather and Driven With Drivel To a Very Bright Future". Kind of catchy.

Billions and billions of dollars will be flowing into Haiti in the near will take some years, but a new Haiti will be much more advanced than what existed prior to the earthquake....and with a few hundred thousands mouths less to feed.

In addition, Haiti has one of the largest oil reserves in the world....many speculate it is much larger than Venezuela's reserves.  Imagine the potential wealth flowing into that much smaller nation.

Just like Europe was much more advanced following WW2.....Haiti too will be a much improved nation following massive repairs to the current devastion.

You guys need to abandon your doom and gloom attitude and start looking at the bright side.

Haiti has a wonderful future....a much better life is being set for a population who has lived in very difficult conditions for many generations.
