The economy is not what it use to be and we are having to make adjustments, but downsizing your life should never include your dreams. Until Washington decides what direction it wants to take, many of us are sitting in a limbo state hoping for guidance. Why? Congress doesn't have the answers to our aspirations...we do. If we won the lottery tomorrow (a big one) all pistons would be firing as we pondered the possibilities both great and small. We might even (eventually) think of philanthropic endeavors. Well, think of this juncture in America as one of opportunity for success! Money is not the only asset we have and the sooner we discover this the better off our nation will become. Americans are not at a crossroad, but rather they are at a "spaghetti junction" (like Atlanta) with multiple directions to choose from (which even includes global markets)...if we dare. Hope is wasted on the hopeless. Why are we waiting on the government to come up with an alternative anything? While Congress sits stagnant, bickering over moot points, it is going to be up to WE THE PEOPLE to kick the economy into gear via new directions. Did you know that we have the computer technology we have today because young "Geeks" (like Bill Gates) hung out in garages tinkering with electronics, armed with little more than theories and passion? You have heard that a mind is a terrible thing to waste, right? I would take it one step further...TIME IS A TERRIBLE THING TO WASTE!
Note: Why are we waiting on the governent to come up with an alternative anything? If we invent it and patent it, maybe we can sell it on ebay...or to another country!
May God bless America...and may America deserve it!
