Hope Floats


On New Year's Eve we are told to look back and reflect on the past year and to dream of what we want ahead but the future seems to be a CD caught in a loop, Has anyone noticed that gas prices are raising AGAIN! I voted last year for a man who has his image posted on bummer stickers with the words "HOPE" written on it but what I should had voted for was change. We are still in two wars, the jobless rate is still climbing, good American's are losing their homes, while the banks are up to their same old dirty tricks and national health care?I'll believe it when it happens WTF! They say that hope floats but I can't help but feel we good Americans are sailing on the Titanic and there are just not enough life boats for us all! In the Titanic only the rich got on the life boats! WTF!

I sure hope it all improves for you all in 2010. All the best for a great New Year.

I heard a definition of hope the other day that I really liked...
"The desire for a future condition over which we have no agency."
Things take time to heal, and they were pretty torn up when they got handed off. Everyone wants their slice of the pie, however, if we can get the top lot to take a smaller slice we may yet get a share.

just by chance i happen to see your blog. i learned from my guruji, that there are two perspectives to look at any situation.
look at the problems
look at the solutions.
He said, the people with second outlook make history and the people with first outlook read it.
wish you happy new year.

Our economy does not turn around very fast. As badly damaged as it was by the billions lost in the last banking debaucle (where does all of that money go anyways?), a correction will be years in the making.
Frankly, I try to stay as far away from the government as I can. As (I think) Jefferson once said: that government is best that governs least.

Have an inspired new year; and walk thewarm beach for all of us freezing here in midwest.
