Two cents on the economy

What is happening in our national economy and also in Europe is the positioning of investors into a new paradigm based on the perception that consumers will not be making the purchases on credit like they did five to fifteen years ago. In addition the realization that the number of consumers has dropped because of real unemployment figures that hover at least at 25% and in Europe as high as 35%. Healthy corporations have been saving cash instead of investing profits and those missing dollars affect the investment portion of finance and economy. Banks will now begin charging these corporations more money to hold these huge sums of cash as a way to recoup fees lost when the corporations would invest. All of these arenas are shifting trying to first become stable and then to be strategic and identify new ways to generate income based on the new paradigm which is becoming the new economy and marketplace.

I think what has happened is that individuals have looked at the result of the whole raising the deficit spending cap and decided that a fundamental, systemic change is beginning to occur in our government. That change is that people are pushing for real changes in how the government does it business meaning that a real drive is happening for the government to have a budget and to stick to it. This means that spending is to become restrained which means some “projects” that result in goods and services will not be realized or if they are they will be a smaller percentage than before. This then would result in less labor required which translates into less FT jobs and benefits and that translates into X number of current consumers being either restricted in their consumption because of loss of job or at least a decrease of some percentage which snowballs into many people and that drives even less demand than currently for products/services which means mfg/etc need less employees working FT etc, etc. So the individuals who are the bankers/investors/money are realizing that the government is not going to be in the position to improve the economy (first paragraph) so they are reevaluating how they are going to use their money.

Some of the next variables are the US 2011 and 2012 elections, Israel and the Palestinian issue, China and Russia concentrated push for replacing the US dollar as the reserve currency, EU whether it develops into a black hole or not – and/or if the individual countries push for nationalism erodes the unity, power & value behind the euro. These don’t begin to address every real variable out there but they are ones that will definitely drive MSM and political spin.

What does all of this mean for people like you and I? We need to pay of our debts as quickly as possible because banks/ creditors will keep raising finance charges in an effort to recoup lost $ at the sales registers. Save cash.

Glory to God in the highest, THEN - peace on earth and goodwill to men (Luke 2:14). So peace on earth and goodwill to the human race can not occur until their is first - Glory to God in the highest. This will never be accomplished nor desired by the UN or the USA governments. Hence the Second Advent. Moment by moment I want to grow correctly in the grace, knowledge, wisdom and understanding of ALMIGHTY GOD. Spiritually I consider myself a saved Bible believer but so as to hopefully avoid some of the stigma that is heavily steeped on anyone who does not designate a denomination, I must consider myself an independent saved Bible believing Baptist. But Baptist denominations are highly polluted with leaven and such. I am a Christian in the true definition of the word which is given in Acts 11:26. Roman Catholicism and Orthodox Catholicism are NOT Christian. R.C. has been a great and successful tool in 1) making people not want to be a Christian and 2) making the majority of its believers/followers/members die and go to hell. I have great concern for everyone's present, temporal state of things and the future, eternal state of things. Politically I consider myself an independent, that unfortunately due to the limited choices, usually votes Republican. I am praying for legitimate third and fourth parties to gain traction in our society so that they will provide some better candidates. I am hoping for a bloodless American Spring. I believe one of the greatest detriments to our society here in the USA is the MSM (mainstream media), the judicial system and Congress. MAGA!! WWG1WGA #45 #17 Our country needs to make term limits for those who hold a seat in Congress. The individual can not serve more than 8 years in their lifetime in any capacity of Congress. And yes I voted for Trump both times and will do so again. Some people I admire: The Lord Jesus Christ (wholly God and wholly man), all those who gave their lives as recorded in the Foxe's Book of Martyrs and those since then that have been executed because they would not deny their saving faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, William Tyndale, John Wycliffe, Matthew Rogers, Gipsy Smith, DL Moody, Clarence Larkin, Ronald Reagan, John Knox, Martin Luther, Apostle Paul, the 12 disciples/apostles listed in Acts 1, Samuel the prophet, William Evans, Ph.D., D.D., Litt. D, Edward F. Hills A.B. - Yale, Th.M. - Columbia, Th.D. - Harvard; JTC, Archbishop James Ussher, John Frith, Erasmus, Alexander Hislop, Avro Manhattan, Dean Burgon, 161 1 KJV Bible Translators, Susanna Wesley, Susannah Thompson Spurgeon, PSR & Gail Riplinger. Some "things" that I like: Conscientiousness, well-marked books, kindness, romance, appreciation, morals, empathy, big hugs, nuzzling, eyes, long hair, gray/silver hair, beauty, modesty, when a women is a "lady", good coffee, windy days or nights, the sound of rain, cold weather, spring, autumn (except all the leaves to rake), roaring fire in the fireplace or pit, a good meal, gestures from a loving or friendly heart, the oceans/large lakes, music, coffee houses/cafes, books!, grand libraries, well used bookshelves, peace, white fluffy clouds in a blue sky, birds nesting, bunnies!, chipmunks!, wildlife when its not predatory, learning, smell of bread or pizza baking, the smell of coffee, the Basque, collection of information/data/inputs of various kinds, snow, gratitude, connecting the dots in life, old people still in love and are best friends, a good mystery, good film/tv/etc., internet, clocks and watches, trains/railroad, symbols, history of many types, good conversation/discussion, my music collection, studying the Bible, a well-marked Bible, crunchy snacks, handwritten correspondence & journals/notes, preparing meals for people who will appreciate it, beautiful gardens, blueprints, maps, REAL friends, boat rides, good Bible preaching/teaching, the mountains, the wilderness, hiking, teamwork, correspondence, wisdom, simplicity in the right places & quiet. Some "things" I loathe: The Alexandrian Cult and its supporters, FAKES, bullying, making fun of people, grief, taking advantage of people, neglect, disregard of others, raunchiness, hate, bossy people, brutality, war, fighting, cursing, degradation of society, evil, wickedness, narcissism, liars, abuse of any kind, loss of innocence, smell of burnt popcorn, nosy people, death, fake friends, disingenuous, being forgotten, not being valued, loss, broken heart, deceit, disrespect, manipulators, arrogance, loud people, troublemakers, self-entitlement, non-stop talkers who are completely self-absorbed and make everything in someway related to themselves,
