It shows you what a distorted reality we are all in when it is thought to be a good thing that the government is giving away “free” money to everyone.
When the sugar high wears off after this latest round of the dole, the reality of our dire economic situation, with persistent high unemployment, will sink in. That’s when the Federal Reserve-induced stock market rally begins to unwind. You won’t want to be in it when that happens. The stock market takes the escalator up but the elevator down, as the saying goes. When there are no buyers and all sellers, you won’t be able to even get into your account to make sell orders.
I am a voracious reader and also enjoy writing. I often have a very different point of view than the popular one. I do see value in debate, and thought it might add to the public debate on controversial issues if I were to express my contrarian opinions. I also started keeping my poems recently (I've written little pieces my whole adult life but never kept any); and I've been a photographer now for over 25 years. So I will be adding an occasional poem and hopefully interesting photograph to the blog along the way, just to spice things up.
