The End Of Western Civilization As We Know It!

 . . . NOT!

I know that it is difficult with all of the hype from the news media and the talking heads on the cable channels to be able to think beyond the next week, much less the next twenty-four hours. However, despite the ongoing manic-depressive state that they seem to fluctuate between, the world as we know it is not coming to an end — either for our republic for those more financially interested — your portfolios!

Regardless of the political action taken by our Congress and President — and they’re ours, regardless of the low estate that we hold them in — I predict that the sun will come up tomorrow and next week and every day for the next decade and beyond. In fact it will keep on coming up until that time in the future, some billion years + when the sun will extinguish itself as well as any and all life of whatever sort in our present solar system. However, fortunately, this is not a problem that we or our portfolios will have to deal with.

Things are supposed to come to a head tomorrow (10/17). I will be on my way to Savannah and on Friday morning, I will wake up and I fully expect to see the sun rising up as well!

So, despite all the bloviating in the social media and our various news and financial media, I would like to leave you with some intelligent thoughts on the matter from a little orphan girl (feel free to sing along if you desire):

The sun’ll come out 
Bet your bottom dollar
That tomorrow
There’ll be sun!

Just thinkin’ about
Clears away the cobwebs,
And the sorrow
‘Til there’s none!

When I’m stuck a day
That’s gray,
And lonely, 
just stick out my chin
And Grin,
And Say,

The sun’ll come out
So ya gotta hang on
‘Til tomorrow
Come what may 
I love ya
You’re always
A day
A way!
