LOSING EVERYTHING OVERNIGHT SUCKS!
While most of us are suffering from
the consequences of a financial melt down and experience
recession first hand, it is not hard to imagine how great it
feels to find someone to put the blame on! We're all human after
We all have been hit by this mess
one way or another. We each have an idea as to how we got here
and where we went wrong. Some have stayed quiet because they
were not sure who was to blame and some because they were afraid
of the system! One way or another, enough is enough! it is time
to speak our mind and, hopefully, find a solution for this mess.
As far as the blame game goes, I
blame greed! From politicians and major economists who
KNEW and didn't blow the whistle to the
first-time-buyers who invested 110% of what they owned to
hopefully make a 30% profit in a year , we all are victims of
greed. Unfortunately, sometimes, it takes a disaster to wake us
up. We, as a nation, became too greedy and blind to the fact
that anything that goes up, specially as fast as real estate
did, shall come down. We sold our peace of mind and quality of
life for possibility of making a big profit and lost a lot
Meanwhile, for those who could save the nation but let us drown
anyway, there should be a punishment fitting the crime. Those
who instead of serving the future of this nation , served their
own greed and that of their friends', should not be allowed to
get away with it.
In search of a solution, I believe
nothing and no one will help us get out of this mess but our
unity and perseverance! Regardless of whose fault it has been,
as parents of future citizens, we have this duty to make sure
that we won't leave this mess for our children. If we don't
clean it up, it'll get too big for our children to handle. Hech;
Let's prove to the world one more time that we are the greatest
nation on earth, this time, by fixing our own problems rather
than the others'. Enough putting our nose where it doesn't
belong. What's the point of sending our boys and girls to the
mouth of death in the name of democracy when what we get in
return is bodies of our soldiers and hatred of the world?
We don't need force to rule the world; we have the technology
for it! The world of future, will obviously, be thirsty for new
sources of energy to avoid extinction of life as we know it! We
can prevail if we cut our dependency to corporate giants, mainly
Big Oil, and concentrate on developing tools to use clean
sources of energy. That will sell far better than Ford and
Chrysler did in the 60's!
Let's not, however, forget that sacrifices shall be made. After
all, we are doing this so our children won't have to!
