All we have to fear is fear itself.

I'm not much one for quoting Democrats, but just had to dig that old one out from my FDR file.

And, quite frankly, I have to tell you he was just as wrong about that as he was about so much else. Perhaps, more so. At the very least, we have more to fear than fear in this day and age. And, I'm not just talking about the Islamofascists, Kim Jung-Il, or any of the other yo-yo's on the world stage.

No, I'm talking about the economy and the yo-yo's we have right here in the good old USofA.

There's a lot of fear out there as I type these words, and it's a growing fear. But, besides just the fear itself, we need to fear what the fraidy-cats are going to do.

Fear is a good thing when it's rational. I mean, you SHOULD be afraid if you are confronted by a rabid pit bull in a dark alley when you have a raw leg of lamb tied around your waist.

But, what you should ask yourself is, "Why did I put myself in this situation in the first place?!"

The answer is, "There's no good reason. But, you're there. Deal with it. Quickly!"

Okay, now I'm just ranting.

Suffice it to say that fears about certain sectors of the economy are not only growing, but they are spilling into and stifling other sectors' potential.

As in the 1930s, it is time for some cooler heads to prevail BEFORE some socialist gets into the White House and does something even more frightening than the free market ever thought about doing.


I need a weekend to get over myself . . .
