The year of 2012 seemed to be a year that had a lot of great promise but sharply fell flat in delivering any generous returns on such promises. Our so-called leaders have increased their bickering and unwillingness to compromise, it seems the citizens of this country have gone mad and our push towards stability and progressive growth has stalled. Going into 2013 looks like the bad we were in is only going to get worst. That in itself is a very scary thought to ponder. Read More An Examination of 2012

The world we live in today is very fragmented and divided. We are divided in our ideology, in our educational attainment, in our societies but probably most importantly in our wealth. Money, wealth, finances and social class are very discussed words in the world topics of today. These words point to the growing issue we all nearly face, not only as a nation but on a global scale. To say it plain and simple, “the rich continue to get richer while the poor get poorer.” Read More The Coming Divide

Matter of fact let’s take out the word comfortably and just say to maintain a reasonable standard of living. This means a continual erosion of the middle class is occurring in our American society.

I will go on record and say that the U.S. is definitely undergoing an economic reset, which will restructure the American Dream. I believe the days of overflowing prosperity and immense abundance are over for a while if not forever. This is due to the fact that as we reset our system we must purge out the excess that has left us bloated with deadweight.

It may not be pleasing but tough times call for tough measures. Read More Redefining and Realizing The American Dream
