First I want to start by saying thanks to those you who read this blog and gave me encouragment. And to anyone who feels they want to exercise their free speech and be snarky to my comments, that’s fine. But this is my blog and I also have the right to trash your comment which I will do. If I want to be criticized, I’ll talk to my husband. LOL Kidding.
Anyway, I have lately been concerned about this whole Fed monetizing the debt…I just wish I listened and learned more in college when I took Economics. It’s only been recently with the start up of our own business and then the economic downturn, that I’ve been getting a crash course. But I can’t say I fully understand and am able to absorb the huge amount of information out there on this topic. So I’m not sure what to do.
There are those that have the survivalist attitude that think we should all be building bunkers, storing food, starting their own food garden, etc. I have never had much skill with this type of thing. Even planning for hurricanes is not all that easy for me. But is it really the same thing anyway? Planning for a hurricane really only takes a good two to three weeks worth of stuff. I wouldn’t know where to begin for some sort of huge food shortage problem. I wouldn’t really be fearful at all if I thought that there were good and honorable capitalists in charge of our government right now. It seems like the people who want power have more of a say than the people who want to make a profit. That conerns me.
Then there are those going about their lives not worried at all about this…or at least not expressing their concern. I wish I could be them. I keep trying to find information out there that will help me to stop worrying about it, but I’ve yet to see anything. Please feel free to post in comments any articles or news that would make me less worried.
And what about this lunatic George Soros? How can one man be all that powerful? Don’t get me wrong, I know there are evil people in the world and he may very well be one of them. But honestly, he’s only a man and there is no MAN on earth that really scares me that much. Men die…and this particular man is closer to that prospect due to his age. At that point he will have to answer to God and I have no doubts that he will know way better than me just what to do with this man. I don’t know, I just don’t really fear him. I do think that he could cause a lot of trouble and could cause a lot of damage to our economic system. But when have we ever allowed one flawed man to destroy millions of lives without holding him accountable eventually? Not to say I WANT disaster, but it’s not like he’s got some sort of army and is going to take over the world (cue Pinky and the Brain). Come to think of it, he is a lot like Pinky.
But this Fed does need to be stopped. I DO NOT like that they have as much power as they do. And I really think THIS may be the one big issue that brings the left and the right together. I don’t know anyone on the left that is all that thrilled with big unaccountable government agencies (well, at least ones not associated with protecting the environment and continuing the nanny state). The Fed is the epitome of what the left dispises and we all know they are working in cahoots with the evil Wall Street tycoons right? (That was snarky by the way on my part). In any case, I think there might be something here with bringing the country together to fight a common cause.
I just hope that if this crazy high inflation occurs due to the Fed’s actions, that it doesn’t happen before the holidays. I don’t relish telling my kids we won’t be having a Christmas this year.
Oh well…once again, thanks for indulging me. I know I am not a great writer and I basically write like I talk, but it is rather cathartic. This morning I woke up at around 5:30 and couldn’t get back to sleep because of thoughts like this as well as, concerned about all the stuff I have to do today to prepare for our families mini-vacation to Disney this weekend. I hate it when that happens. Writing things down does help because it’s like putting it in a box up on the shelf and I don’t need to think about it anymore. Thanks again all!
