I think the number one goal of EVERYBODY, EVERYWHERE should be to LEARN – AND LEARN REAL QUICK – HOW TO DISTINGUISH BETWEEN WHAT IS A GOOD INVESTMENT, WHAT IS TRULY NECESSARY (FOOD, WATER, ENERGY), AND WHAT IS A WASTE. THE WASTE NEEDS TO STOP.
A good place to start would be education – itself being fraught with waste – but this is an emergency, so why not use non profit organizations to fund television ads on networks all across the board… PSA style… not targeting ads, just a scattergun approach… throw them everywhere!!! Make a good ‘ad’ make it at least 30 seconds make three different versions make some in Spanish as well… and BLAST it all over every single TV channel… do it really nice and link it to a website PACKED with resources the average person can understand and utilize THEMSELVES, informing them about how they can HELP, volunteer, where and how to donate safely, if you have money and wish to help that way… if you don’t have money but need money, what you can do… if you have no job what you can do to help in your spare time, whatever it may be… If anything, this should be a time for us to REALLY put our PETTY differences aside lest we destroy ourselves, if not each other.
The Sun WILL come up tomorrow. Hopefully Congress and the President averts this disaster of foreign debt. We might have to make agreements such as giving up our rights to the free market by signing a contract with say China, Japan, etc. forcing us to remain dependent on foreign trade (as if we weren’t already), which I see as resulting in fewer American jobs and a long-term disaster. It’s not just America that’s in trouble.. this is a global issue.
