Economy Rant


You know I am getting tired of all these partisan reactions to the economy and life in general.

What happened to doing what's best of the people and the country?  Why is always what works follow party lines?  If the democrats have an idea then the republicans almost always reject it.  If the republicans have an idea then the democrats reject it.  I swear a democrat could say, "snow is white and always falls down" and a republican would say, "no snow always falls towards the ground and is white.  Oh and we need tax cuts."

The thing is there is no absolute right here there is no absolute wrong here.  You will always be able to find flaws in any plan.  We all have to be more flexible and see that there can be some merit in what the other side says.  We also have to remember that the economy tends becoming a self-forfiling prophecy.  We think it's going to be bad because politicians and talk radio and tv hosts tell us it is going to be bad, therefore we pull in our money and don't spend as much therefore the economy does in fact get worse.

So let's all try to cut down on complaining about how the other side doesn't get it and figure out that we are all on the same side.  Let's work together and think positive.

Everybody go out and buy something.  Hopefully one of my books.


I will be back from vacation on monday.
