We might be there right now. Somewhat scary and makes me feel even more blessed that I have a business that appears to be somewhat stable through this mess although I may need to cut back my budget a little if things keep up this way.

Well, there was some good news today. Consumer spending and wages were actually up in January for the first time in 8 months.

This has been happening longer then 5 weeks. It just sucks Obama had this placed on his table, he could of been something good but now I don't even think anyone can get us out of this type of economic situation.

Yes, we've been headed this way since the Fairness in Lending act of 1977. The high energy prices really pushed the cart over the cliff.

Conservatives are hoping we get there so they can point fingers. They hate America.

Enjoy.

Not gonna be a depression.

92% of homeowners are paying ON TIME.

Unemployment is still under 7%. They may increase of course but all things considered, thats amazing.

Infrastucture WILL happen. Thats jobs and durable goods being bought and sold. Those that will be working will spend money, pay taxes.

Those making over 300k who talked smack about not minding to pay higher taxes are about to pony up.

Its tough and all. But the market simply couldn't keep going up the way it did. Contractions, recessions. They happen ever so many years.

Everyone needs to listen less to the media and more to their surroundings.

Trim the fat, pad some savings. Spend wisely and tip generously. Consumer CONFIDENCE is what is missing. From the lender to the lendee.

At a grass roots level, people can make a huge impact on the overall confidence of the market. I truly believe that.
