Wow. So nothing is working (yet) on this financial thing.
No consolation comes from listening to our elected officials and economic experts since it is clear that we are in uncharted territory and no one knows quite what to do. This storm has been building up for so long and has erupted with such suddenness and ferocity, the government is trying to do everything at once – battening hatches, bailing water, repairing sails, reversing course, swabbing the deck, changing crews - hoping some combination of these things will at least keep the ship afloat.
(We won't talk about the fact that many of them saw the ice burg and went, "Gee whiz, check that out." or "Meh.")
So, yeah, the government is trying to fix this mess. Our government. That alone should keep us up at night, given that they are one giant clusterf*ck even when our pants aren't down around our collective ankles. *
What is your main concern for yourself/your family in all this? I'm curious about that because I for one, am not sure what to worry about most, and I'm awfully glad I'm married to a financial genius who knows as well as anyone what to do and not do right now. Just having someone who can interpret the financial news is a relief!
What scares you the most?
*Me jaded? Cynical? Peevish? Nah...
