Statement: The last four years, 2006-2010, has been an economic roller-coaster disaster for many of us, here and elsewhere. During this time, business people submitted, or produced "fuzzy" mathematical numbers as ‘bait' to the average consumer. For many of us, the lure seemed ‘to good to be true'. Re-finance your house. Go on (many) vacations. Buy a new car. Get a hair transplant, or fake ‘boobs'.

As the average property tax soared, so did the mortgage payments. Lots of people got in to deep. Then over their head. There was no lifeguard. You just couldn't dial 911. In fact, the government had to bail out the banks that had created the illusion of ‘instant' prosperity to begin with. At first, it seemed everyone had a job. A couple ‘blinks of the eye', and it all vanished for many people. Their jobs too!

Meanwhile, the government continued to bailout Wall Street, as the common person looked for employment. As foreclosure rates climbed, the houses sat empty. Some people went homeless, while millions more applied for food stamps, and government assistance. The national debt soared like a hot air balloon, drifting along on an ‘unknown' course. And all along, no one considered ‘stepping on the brakes'.

Today, we have been informed that financial cuts in primary education are looming. Yet, universities pay coaches in the millions of dollars per year, to fill stadium venues. They hand-out free scholarships to millions of student-athletes per year, while their main fans on Wall Street continue to vacation at Disney World &White Sulfur Springs (WV). Or, as a custom, they cordially offer their season ticket seats to their business partners, as if it was all by design.
