For months, now, we have all been inundated with doom and gloom from abroad. I guess the thing that bothers me the most is that our illustrious overseas wizards seem to be blaming all their woes and misfortunes on the American economy. What claws me is that we Americans are so often held with so much disrespect by so many of these wizards and yet these same folks seem to have so heavily invested, for profit sake, in that which they so disdainfully regard and now, because they are dancing with ghouls, they don't quite know how to sweat or perspire (that's a military joke phrase).

Maybe a little political in nature, this entry, but what I see this country needing to do is to belly up and wipe our own selves, slap the crap out of those responsible while holding them accountable, pick up the pieces and move on.... this time maybe with a National Focus On Caveat Emptor Month, possibly beginning immediately after President's Day Weekend --- remember those guys, Washington and Lincoln?

Yes, I have noticed the same thing watching the financial international news lately. And it seemed about only 3-4 months ago that all these nations were telling us that the US economy didn't matter anymore? Sure it does without the US middle class holding them up 25% of their exports evaporate. So, its just amazing, the reality. This is the greatest nation ever created in the history of mankind, anyone who denies that is simply fooling themselves. Lance
