It just dawned on me. Why did it take so long? The economy is in a tail spin. People are losing their jobs, their homes, and their dignity. Oil is plummeting. Companies are going out of business. Prices will soon begin to drop on just about everything. The vultures will watch and wait for the onset of the stench of death. The spiral will tighten and pick up speed. … and then they will step in and start buying. It will be those that have survived: people, corporations, banks, & governments. Paying pennies on the dollar, they will scoop up everything and then breathe life back into the economies.

It is a nasty game of chicken – one that I do not want to play.
