What have been your thoughts concerning the economy this past week? What runs through your mind?

All kinds of things are running through my mind, but what about you? Share with me what your thoughts are? thanks :)
Mountainman:

It doesn't bother me at all. It's not the end of the world. It's part of a cycle. We will survive and thrive as we always have. Think and act positvely , have faith in the finest country in the world.

Dr. Wolfman:

well Amen!! and thanks for that positive answer!! awesome!!

Frog:

No offense, but it's this just let it be, it's just a cycle mentality that is part of why we are in so much trouble. There were fundamental problems with our economy. Deep, systemic problems. They were cleverly hidden from us. Hell I think the people that knew what was going on deluded themselves into thinkiiing somehow everything would turn out just fine. I have got news for you, when we let things like this happen, when we let unchecked greed bring us to the brink of economic collapse, we have no right to call ourselves the finest country in the world. You, I and every other citizen should be very very angry right now.

Mountainman:

Perhaps you need to take some reading comprehension classes, ThatOneGuy. Nowhere do I say anything that you claim I do. But, it is part of a cycle. You should've learned that in 7th grade. And we ARE the finest country in the world. Our system has checks and balances in place to help prevent just what you are worrying about. You should've learned that in 8th grade.

Frog:

Mountainman, I don't think you comprehend the severity of what has just happened. We aren't talking about recession here. We were on the brink of literal economic collapse. This is not a natural part of any healthy economic system. Our checks and balances did nothing to prevent this because there is almost no regulation of our economic system. And where to we get off saying were better than any other nations? What have we done recently to be deserving of that title. Europe is kicking our rears in every category imaginable. Not to mention the fact that China literally owns a large chunk of this country. Wake up man. Before you try insulting me, you should actually take a look into what has happened.

Pete:

As I get older, and see that all this really is cyclical, I'm not of a mind to panic. I am lucky that we can pay our bills though. I know that with prices rising on EVERYTHING, there are people who are really struggling. And people who were hoping to retire soon may get hit hardest with the stock market problems, so that's tough too. Now is the time to help out your neighbor if you can. Donate more money to charities if you can, donate even your time. It's a good time to be aware of those around us who are less fortunate, for sure.

Dr. Wolfman:

bless you boxermom....how true...may those who have, "give", and for those who "don't have", hang tough and know that many of us are looking to help you.... We who have some money and a good job need to be giving as never before, being God's hands and feet....it's our opportunity to reach out, in Jesus Name..

Pete:

regardlesss of who we worship, it's time to give!

Frog:

I'm angry really. Angry that we let this happen. All this talk of deregulation based on the asinine notion that unchecked greed and market forces will solve all our problems despite the fact that we know such unchecked market forces inevitably lead to increasingly severe cycles of boom and bust. Sure everyone was happy during the housing bubble. But did we learn anything from the tech collapse and every other economic boom bust cycle? No. And now look where we are. The neoconservative policies of the Bush administration have accelerated this countries decline and we desperately need to get rid of these people and take control of our country again.

BLUE CAFE:

Yes!

TELUU:

It sickens me I think we should vote the republicans out of power.

Dr. Wolfman:

Well, it does make me sick too....that has gone through my mind as well.... thanks for sharing..:)

Dr. Wolfman:

yes, thats gone through my mind as well....and I believe your right...this may be the most difficult time in our nations history... thanks for sharing :)

Dollar brand:

20 years, talking about panic attack..............I will go crazy.

Dollar brand:

700 billion dollars is scary, what happens if that's not enough, is this money going to produce more jobs quickly, or will everybody lose everything before we can fix it. Lots of wondering...........

No skinny:

I really do not believe either party can handle the political chaos, but there is hope, and I'm looking for Him to come any day now. The dark clouds seem to have everyone running scared, keep looking there is Light. We need to really pray for the Lords' will to be done and walk there in. Peace and Joy are there!!

Sunni:

Amen!

Frog:

Stop it. Don't place your faith in His return. We have to solve our problems by addressing them. Not ignoring them. God has made it clear that we should not look to Him to solve all our problems. He wants us to do right by ourselves.

No skinny:

Just because I'm looking for his return does not mean I'm ignoring the problems, he did say look for his return, but he also said occupy till he comes. He also said seek his guidance in the affairs of life, and this is doing right by his will!! Thank you ThatOneG

Dr. Wolfman:

oh Native American....i'm so with ya! Several of my friends and I were just talking about the exact same thing.... I do believe He is on His way...
blessings brother! Wonderful to see you as always :)

Frog:

I'm sorry Native American, I was frustrated when I said that. I shouldn't have said that. I apologize.

No skinny:

ThatOneGuy, no problem, everyone has those moments, your apology is accepted, very good to meet you !!!!

BLUE CAFE:

With sentiments like that going around, it's no wonder the antichrist will be welcomed with open arms by the masses as the messiah. The Christian masses no less...

No skinny:

Ant a person has to be born of the Spirit of God to be a Christian, and those that are will never see the Anti christ for we will be in heaven, only the false will be left behind and they will follow the anti christ because they refused the truth of the gospel of Christ, thus they will receive the LIE of Satan and be damned eternally. There is only one way to have salvation and that is by grace through faith in the finished work of Christ!!

Sunni:

Job security comes to mind. I am glad my job does not depend on the economy for the main part. But others who work there do depend on the economy to get their hours.

Lyinn:

I think we all are a little shell shocked and I suspect the worse part is yet to come. This isn't just a Republican or Democrat thing, there's plenty of blame to go around. Just once you'd think those in congress could put aside their differences and get something done about this and soon. The problem is this is the government's fault, how can we trust them to fix it? Even if they could get something done together is it already a day late and a dollar short? This speaks volumes about what both presidential candidates have had to say about Washington and if we survive this dilemma we must rid ourselves of the adolescents running(ruining) our country. We must demand term limits, put an end to lobbies and keep government from engaging in business of any kind.

EQuisitor:

The rich get rich and the poor get poorer.
