why don't you read all the sides and information that you can gather, then make an informed decision, irrespective of the "side" it's coming from.

or, are you just increasing your post count with one sided quips?

try reading, listening and responding with thoughtful posts.

you may actually get some responses other than mirror images of your posts, due to the divisive nature you put forth.

Everyone can be thoughtful but not all can be wise.

Non-farm payrolls fall by largest monthly loss in 60 years.
Governments pumping trillions of dollars of debt-backed currency into the world economy.
Peak oil effects on the horizon in the next 5-10 years, no viable alternative to crude oil(no not just energy, materials too - look it up.)
A mind numbed, consumerist, cultureless "melting pot" completely unaware populace that's more worried about whether they are going to go to "hell" when they die than anything that actually matters in life.

Yeah, why not optimism?

That pretty much sums it up.

And with that I am going to bed.

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
