The problem is not that there are problems. The problem is expecting otherwise and thinking that having problems is a problem.
– Theodore Rubin
Too many people suffer disillusion in life because they expect life to be a bowl of cherries.
There is much complaining these days about the rancor in politics. Usually those complaining loudest are those who believe they are losing the battle. If only the other side would compromise more to my position, if only they other guys hadn’t done such and such we wouldn’t be in this terrible situation.
The US economy is currently in a down cycle. Yes a cycle. Speculation in the free market system always results in tremendous highs and lows. The high unemployment rate isn’t the fault of Obama or the Republicans; it is the result of a free market economy.
Sure, certain fiscal policy can make problems worse, and yet other policies will reduce the amount of speculative gambling that is possible at any given time, but regardless, the ups and down of the economy are the pistons that drive the engine that we call the American Dream.
