Being free of that fear is sure to help their sleep.

You can have all the supply in the world but if nobody wants to buy it it’s just so much junk. Reagan was wrong; it’s time to bury his wrong ideas.

And causes the astute reader to wonder if the author is merely another one of the sheeple. Near term?! Is that all we are concerned with? oh, yes, that’s right we are- all the way from the president and his appointees (QE ad infinitum)to the folks in the street and their facebook addictions and credit cards and dancing with the stars and black friday obsession. BUT that short term thinking is a big part of the problem and the course of the longer term and bigger picture should be our focus! Not near term! And if the people don’t realize that any longer then perhaps authors of articles should help educate and wake up the sheeple! And “views” don’t determine events in the long term- FACTS do. We ARE looking at a bleak future in so many ways because FACTS seem to no longer matter and things such as 15 Trillion in debt among so other serious issues arent as important to people as tweeting their shallow thoughts to their shallow friends.
