RANT: Do people UNDERSTAND what is going on? WTF???

WTF??? Is this not the largest economic crisis ever? Should we all be losing our heads over this? Do people even UNDERSTAND how huge this is? Obviously not 😦

I just got off the phone with my parent. I explained to her how America is losing tax reciepts up to the tune of 54 BILLION in the past 30 days. That means no schools, police, fire, bridges or anything else we pay for. No more pensions, retirement, savings or investments. The only thing that will be worth anything over the next 9-12 months are staples like bread, metals, guns & ammo, fresh water, and other foods.

My parent is more worried about whether or not a casino will move into her area to drive up the value of her condo.

WTF??? Casino? Our financial system is a casino, except the elites have 5 Aces and your stuck with Jokers.

Is it that people just do not understand the scope of the crisis?
Do they believe we this will turn around in a few weeks? (Cause it will NOT!)
Do they understand how our economy works? (If nobody is buying goods, then nobody has a job)
Do they understand that these statistics seem unimportant now, but will be in the next 6 months?
Do they realize that the millions of lost jobs ARE NOT COMING BACK????
Do they understand the implications of letting the govermnent say “too big to fail“? Do they really know what that means?

The biggest questions is, do they even care?

  1. Sadly, job loss is affecting so many now. I am one of those that lost a job I loved for 18 years in Dec 2008 due to the bad economy. Fortunately, I was able to turn my initial fear and anxiety into joy and opportunity by following a simple plan …….even included one miracle! So inspired, I wrote a book, The Joy of Job Loss, for those who have lost their job, for those who know someone who has lost their job, or for those who simply fear losing their current job.

    My hope is that my job loss experience, plan, and positive results covered in my book will have as much value to others as it did for me. I hope you will read and share with others. Wishing all those impacted by job loss only the very best moving forward.
