I was watching the discovery channel the other day and watched, “Doomsday prophets.” It was a group of men discussing the fate of mankind. This one man (sorry that I didn’t take notes and could tell you his name,) but he stated that with our current economical state (spending nearly 20 million dollars an hour for the United States to remain as we know it) that it can not go on for very much longer without a collapse of our economy, or reform.


The problem is ours as americans and we know the problem is there but because we do not know what to do about it, we ignore it. He gave a reference in a little short story:


There was a damn and it was going to burst at any moment. Three miles down river, a village was frantic and trying to decide what they should do. Two miles down river a village was some what worried about the problem and one mile down river, a village was acting as if there was not a problem.


When we can’t figure out how to fix a problem we put it in the back of our minds and go on. Till… like now, our government is in a state and trying desperately to figure out a solution.

  1. Yes. It seems as if they bury their heads in the sand. Until the Dam bursts! We can see the leaks growing ever wider. Why is it they think old habits will solve things. Bailing out with printed money is not going to stop the flow!
    And that goes for the UK too
    Have a peaceful day

  2. That post wasn’t very zen Zen. :) Doesn’t this whole economy thing make you nuts?? I feel kind of stunned, and have to wait to see what they are going to DO before I can determine how to feel about it.
