    Steve, you’ve hit the nail on the head. Great newsletter. I can not expect a government decision to act. The future of my business is in my hands.

    But Steve– Last night Obama said that government is the only answer to this economic mess. *wink*

      Yeah, I wish he’d also riff on the Kennedy line and say, “Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for yourself.”

    Steve, my dear mother, god rest her soul, hit me over the head with a statement when I was 12 years old that I never forgot. She said, “Learn to take care of yourself. Nobody else will.”

    Kinda harsh for a kid, but it left an impression!

    yar my friend,
    triiibe on!

      Bonnie – Here’s what I thought when I read your comment … if you take care of yourself, as mom recommended, other people may be more likely to want to help you. I have no idea if that is true, but it struck me as I read your comment. Is it true? Are the self-sufficient more likely to be “other-sufficed” for some reason? Or is it just that the self-sufficient are in a better place to take what the world offers them and make something of it?
