"A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels" —King Solomon So, what are you doing differently for the New Year? Might I suggest that you get in touch with your spiritual roots? Hey, that advice would even work for America. You know, the country that has created more millionaires than any other economic model on planet Earth? Free Enterprise Ronald Reagan understood it, do we? Not so much it seems. When you forget history, you tend to be doomed to repeat it. I am pleased to report that I am old enough to remember Jimmy Carter's failed presidency. In his last State of The Union address, he basically told America that we "were over." We must learn to do with less. That our dependence on foreign sources for energy was bad. Okay, he was right on that last point. But then Reagan rode in on his white horse, and reminded us that only by getting big government out of way, could we once again prosper. That free enterprise was the answer. And now, the current administration is bent on doing what Carter took four years to accomplish in just two. Destroy our spirit and our economy (anyone else see a connection?). Some legacy that will be! But I digress... I wish everyone a great New Year However, until we return to our roots (and repent), I am not sure when the recovery will begin. Yes, there are pockets of growth around this great nation. But the mood seems to be one of, "Let someone else start up the economy." Well, as for me, I will stand in that gap. Like a reed in the wilderness, crying, "Repent". Return to your spiritual roots and the Free Enterprise economic model that has given the world its greatest advances. As King Solomon suggests (although I consider it more of a commandant!), let us seek to understand and to "attain" unto those wiser than ourselves. Jeff 'SKI' Kinsey © 2010 Jeff 'SKI' Kinsey.
