The United States Financial Picture!!! Do our youth know?

Thoughts From: B. Brown (BREG)

Hello America! It is amazing what is going on right now! Well, actually it is not. If you have been paying attention for the last 8-years, we have all been involved in a breakdown of American values, morals and economic strength. The U.S. is no longer the world economic leader. That is something to really look at and understand.

A Wall Street staple, Lehman Brothers Holdings is gone. This week alone, the U.S. Government took over AIG (American International Group, Inc.) with an $85 Billion Bailout! Bank of America just bought Merrill Lynch & Co. Morgan Stanley, Wachovia & Washington Mutual are looking at different scenarios of buyouts and mergers to survive as "share prices" continue to fall. The picture is not pretty!

All my parents out there, I encourage you to talk to your children and loved ones about what's going on with our economy because if you don't, you will find yourself in even worse shape if you don't have the information to make some good decisions here in the near future. As you see, gas prices are crazy high and some gas stations don't have any gas at all. We must investigate for ourselves and have a good idea on what is going on in our country and around the world. China is the new world economic leader. We as parents and adults must know this and we must share and explain this to our children. Our children must understand that it is not ok to be ignorant and misinformed. They must be "awake"!

I encourage everyone to read the U.S.A. Today, The Wall Street Journal, News Week, etc. to stay up to date on what's going on and tune in to talk radio and CNN, MSNBC, etc. This is an election year and we must all get out and vote! I personally support Obama!!!

Let's continue to Pray and "Faith without Action is Dead!"

One Love!
