Dayton Daily News says "Keep Digging"

Dayton Daily News does not see any reason to change course, what goes down must go up! I do not subscribe to this Laissez faire attitude anymore than Ben and Paul. The "free market" acolytes have certainly been bailing, with your tax days, pretty hard to keep Business As Usual afloat. America deserves it's plight as there are only two soothing responses for the people - the military and the markets.

America has squandered its wealth on large, poorly built houses sprawling over farmland, while it has sent its treasure of fine young men and wealth to the deserts and the mountains. I say when you are in a hole, stop digging.

What Dayton and America has to face is "an about face" or admitting we were wrong. Can that happen? It does not seem so, we seem to be waiting for.... cue Sarah She looked in my eyes and said, 'Yes, I think I will see Jesus come back to earth in my lifetime.'"

OY VEY - Is this what America has come to? Nothing but a consolidated effort of reaching out to our enemies and reconfiguring America back to an electrified rail, with less sprawl, will allow us to avoid falling back to a third world country. The automobile and globalization are dead, so we should invest in our region and forget the worlds problem. If Jesus is coming back, he will not need any help from Sarah and John.

One storm would've been plenty this week, but now there's a financial crisis

Auto companies and manufacturers have been at the heart of U.S. economic problems in recent years. Therefore the Miami Valley has been hit particularly hard. Problems in the financial industry are not as directly focused on southwest Ohio, but they reach Ohio directly through big banks and insurance companies. The region's pre-existing condition makes it especially vulnerable.

And yet, financial analysts seem to agree that when the markets go down, they ultimately go up. Maybe that's another way the Wall Street situation and the Ohio situations intersect.

Yes it's true, "What goes up must come down". I can find peace in knowing that the economy has it's up times and down times and as a result ride the wave. But Wall Street, Corporate CEO's, and politicians are good at manipulating and serving their own agenda, $$$$ and power. Perhaps Sarah Palin said what she said because of the coruption in our system that can ultimately leave you and I without food, clothing and shelter.
