I think your are a little hard on all of us Allan, after all not everyone
went against you on the US Economy.
All countries have financial melt downs. Every Super power comes and goes.
Its all part of a perpetual cycle.
I have not noe do not try to predict these events, when they happen
everybody will know.

> Since it's summertime south of the equator, I suggest you all go out and
buy a nice bottle of wine, some good blue cheese or cheddar and some fresh
fruit, sit down and relax.  Contemplate all those people at the beach,
flying or sailing somewhere on holiday, enjoying the mountains or skiing
somewhere, even go join them.  Then watch the news in the evening and if
that starts to make you depressed, remember that all those bad things
Reported  represent about 1 in 30,000,000 people -- IF THAT!!!  Then go back
to your wine and cheese and think of all the parties being enjoyed, family
outings and gatherings occurring, people being kind to one another and if
you're of a mind to say a prayer of thanksgiving.

> We've had many posts this week about the financial disaster in the U.S.
and the possibility of Marshall law.  Let me tell you that around 1982 to
1986 we were in even greater financial trouble.  Our financial system was
indeed nearing a collapse.  Our Savings and Loans were going broke and
taking many individuals and businesses with them monthly.  Our banks were so
overexposed to 3rd world loans that it threatened to not only destroy our
banking system but pretty much the wold worlds' as well.  But alas, we're
still here and overall the people from poor to rich have it much better than
then.  Oh yes, we'll have  pain and  problems - count on it -, but don't
short the US just yet or our civilization.

> Now go ahead and open that second  bottle of wine and write some nice
posts for next week.  Be realistic about bad things and good things as well.
