The market's up, unemployment is up, the cost of fuel is up, gold is up, foreclosures are up. Unfortunately, this all means that the real world economy is down. The economy that you and I live in is caught in a downward spiral being fed by insane governmental policies which seem to be purposefully designed to cause a collapse. There is no other logical explanation for what is going on. We are caught in a trap of our own making and our political leaders seem to be intent on partying like it's the boomiest of boom times.

We must make fundamental changes to the way we live and the expectations we have. We can no longer live beyond our means. We have to make serious sacrifices to insure the future. Maybe not for our children (we'll never get this fixed that quickly) but hopefully for future generations. We must endure significant privation for the sake of others. We made this mess and we will have to fix it.

Just try to think of the things that we are going to have to deal with as penance and offer your suffering up for the good of others. Salvation comes through suffering. Get ready to pick up your cross.
