I get highly upset with people being so negative and reporting that there are some sort of financial problems with our trusted financial institutions. I know that if there was a great danger then there would be immediate action by our elected officials to solve the crises. I know that if there was a big problem that I would see my President addressing the nation and explaining the difficult situation. I know that if there was a major problem then I would see the President and the Congress working together to investigate and better regulate the financial system. I am sure that our trusted elected officials would do more than sit back and allow a non governmental banking institution, like the Federal Reserve, give all our federal dollars away to prop up a broken system.

Well you don't see any action by our elected officials so you can be sure that everything is OK. I can only assume that the great leaders of our same 2 party system are satisfied with the direction of the country. After all it was just a little bit ago that John McCain declared the economy sound. He should know that the economy is sound since he helped create this sound economy by working for deregulation. After President Bush and Ronald Reagan, John McCain is my hero!

But just in case you are a bit nervous about the financial hickup that became evident on 9/15, then I suggest you go back to 9/11 and see what this great nation did in time of a serious attack on our country and financial system.

Back then, My President and the leaders of my government asked us to sacrifice for the country by going shopping. That really worked then and I know that it will work now.

So you say that you don't have the money anymore and that you maxed out your credit cards. Well that is the type of negative un-American talk that really makes me mad. That "cannot do" stinking thinking is what is effecting the economy. So if the American people would just believe in shopping like they used to then we could easily get beyond this current financial uneasiness.

The unregulated free market system is what has brought you this economy and you shouldn't throw the baby out with the bath water. We are now seeing the fruition of Reaganomics and my hero, President Reagan, would turn over in his grave if he thought the people would do something foolish like regulate Wall Street. No we should follow the lead of our leaders and not make a big deal about banks and the largest investment firms going under. Instead, take my advice, relax and go shopping.
