Good luck.
Are you serious?

Is the US the only country with debts or coping with deflation or economic problems? Is the US dollar dropping? Are foreign suppliers finding other markets with robust economies full of consumers clamoring to buy their goods?

It sounds like we're going to hell in a hand basket until you start noticing that a lot of other countries are in much worse shape!!!

That's what makes me optimistic too. Yeah, we got some problems. But everyone else's are worse!

I hope that in ten years, more people will learn to turn off the cable news and think for themselves. There's more to life than being informed of what to be afraid of today.
