Fantastic, Unbelievable Things

Unlike your average Congressman we are not burdened with making the world a better place.  We are content to mind our business and keep our yard nice and tidy.  That is our contribution to the world.

We have no grandiose ideas to prevent the polar icecaps from melting with cow fart cap laws.  Nor do we try to lower the unemployment rate by printing money.  We do not tell our neighbors what type of light bulb they must use, where they must buy their health insurance, or whether their children can drink soda pop.  In other words, we do not meddle in the private affairs of our fellows.

Every day we punch the time clock and get to it with amusement.  We can hardly help ourselves.  We open our eyes, and everywhere we look, we see fantastic, unbelievable things…

~~~~~~How To Prepare?~~~~~~

The shocking 1990 collapse of the Japanese Market.  The extraordinary U.S. economic boom of the ‘90s and early 2000s.  The devastating global recession that began in 2008.  These impacted everyone’s lives, investments, and fortunes.  The signs of their arrival were visible years and years in advance.  And yet…Almost No One Predicted Them.

The mainstream media didn’t.  The top economists didn’t.  The great financial advisers didn’t.  But One Man Did.

What’s coming Next?  When will it happen?  What should you do to Prepare for it?

European bailouts…Kim Jong-il…WikiLeaks…U.S. Treasuries…government funding extensions…Mark Zuckerberg…California retread Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown…Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell…no Happy Meals allowed in San Francisco…QE2…Justin Bieber…

We couldn’t make this stuff up even if we tried.  And then there’s the President… 

Some Advice for the President

Has there ever been a more comical clown in high office?

We can hardly look or listen to the man without doubling over with sidesplitting laughter.  For example, last Friday the President taught elementary school children the importance of scooping dog poop.

“Sometimes I have to scoop up his poop, because I don’t want to just leave it in the lawn,” said the President of his dog Bo.  “So if you guys have a dog, you got to walk your dog too and clean up after him a little bit.”

The President, of course, is use to giving advice.  Here we’ll pause to offer him some…

No doubt, the world’s a very serious place when you’re President.  Perhaps that’s why you go about spending the future earnings of the unborn with the grave demeanor of an undertaker.  But we know that’s not the only reason why you’re always grimacing…

Several weeks ago we learned you haven’t had a smoke in ‘probably’ nine months.  This explains a lot.  Every time we see your picture you’ve got a face like Michelle’s left you or like you’re about to pass a kidney stone.

Our advice Mr. President?  Burn one.

“Elvis Has Left the Building”

According to William Wordsworth “the world is too much with us; late and soon.” 

At Direct Expressions we don’t entirely buy the old bard’s sentiments.

Maybe it’s because we don’t take things too serious.  We are mere mortals, after all.  Why suffer unnecessary disappointment when expectations go unrealized?

There are already plenty of opportunities for heartache regardless.  You know what we mean…  Just when you think you’ve got it nailed, come to find out, “Elvis has left the building.”

So, if we’re contrary to Wordsworth, then what’s the point of getting caught up in the trappings of the world?

From our perspective…it’s all about perspective. 

Failure builds character, they say…obviously we still have a lot to work on.  Yet with a little humility we can fail with dignity until we either succeed or die.  With any luck the former will come first.

Nonetheless, we are still of this world.  What we mean by this is life’s too short to eat bad steak.  We take each day as it comes.  And we’re determined to enjoy it.

On the business side, things are growing slowly.  Readership of the GDO, our flagship publication, increased over 66 percent during the year…and a little money even trickled in.

Plus, we can’t think of an occupation more fun.  So we’ll keep at it for a while more.  There’s no sense in giving up the dream when part of it has already come true.

P.S.  Europe’s in disarray.  And what they’ll soon find is that bailouts don’t solve a darn thing.  Similarly, the USA is relearning this same lesson from the 1930s.  It seems things could spin out of orbit at a moment’s notice.  Now, more than ever, you need to know what’s coming next and how to prepare for it.
