I think the bottom line will be what we each think, feel and do about our own economy.  All indications are that food prices will go sky high because of the unusual weather we have had.  Knowing this, people should stock up when they find sales.  Bread prices will most likely be the first to increase with sugar close behind.  Get a bread maker and buy sugar on sale.  Small things we do right now will help us in the long run.  Stock up now for the shortages later on.

Anytime I hear a positive report it seems like the next day one comes out that contradicts it.  I just don't see any positive signs in my community or hear about them online.  Everyone I talk to wants people to pray that their husband or wife doesn't lose their job or finds work soon.  I don't ever heard someone saying, oh wow, my husband just got this great job, or I got a nice raise this year.  Very depressing.  That is why I am working together with a bunch of online friends to pool our resources and help each other earn.  There are so many people hurting for income and we figured if we all share our specialties and skills we can create a place where people can learn and earn without a bunch of pressure or hype.  I think it is a great idea and encourage you to do the same.

Samrhett that is an excellent idea.  We will only survive by helping each other and by sharing the wealth.  I am an excellent writer, so if you need help in this area let me know.  Peace and Prosperity to Everyone   :wave:

There are so many signs showing we could be in trouble financially.  The trouble in Egypt may cause lots of economic problems.

the economy cannot start back up again until people start spending money. not he financially challenged people, but the people with any excess need to get that into the system

You are absolutely right.  Egypt only supplies 3% of the worlds oil (so I heard on a news report though I thought it was more), and they are already increasing the cost of gas.  They will come up with many other things that will cost more because of the problems in Egypt.  This thing could have a very nasty domino effect world wide very soon.

The latest news reports that food prices have gone up 29% and the cost of clothing will increase because Egypt is a very large supplier of cotton.  With that said, everything we need to live will increase in price.  Gas has already begun to increase daily.  Since we now import fifty percent of the items we use daily, other countries are really controlling our economy.  Maybe we should all pool our money together and buy back America.

The ones on fixed incomes (SSI) have gotten the shaft.  While their COLA (Cost of Living Allowance), has been denied the last 2 years, everybody else in Government has gotten a raise, from the lowest fed. worker to Congress. People on SSI are governed by the CPI (Consumer Price Index) is the formula if they are approved for a COLA increase or not. Since our economy has been in the toilet, that has been low or non existent. Here's the rub: The CPI does not factor in raising utilities, rent, or food prices.  Everything that affects those on a fixed income. Here's something else....they are the only ones that must adhere to this outdated formula along with other agencies that aid the poor and elderly.

Congress voted down a one time payment to Seniors to help offset no COLA for the last 2 years, and then turned around and voted themselves another raise.  Wake up people, we need to scrutinized who votes for what in the house and VOTE THEM OUT OF OFFICE!!  That's the only way we can fight back.  Thing is, so many people are so ill informed about how they are being sent down the river, that they are letting these crooks get away with it by default.  We must get involved and start reading report cards on these people and make them give account on why they vote the way they do, and keep shafting the average American.

Our Middle Class is shrinking rapidly and the ever widening space between the rich and poor is getting wider. You need to ask yourself why, and educate yourself on the financial behavior of our leaders,and why they vote to keep lining the rich's pockets.

The biggest waist of taxpayers money  is protecting our ex-presidents.  If they are in the private sector, why should taxpayers still foot the bill?

Well said Annella  :thumbsup:

Thank you Sherene, while I'm heading for the Senior group rapidly, my hope and Faith is in our God for financial health. I'm indeed blessed!

While my burden is for the elderly, I feel acute concern for those with children and no jobs for the parents. I cannot understand why the richest nation in the world still have children going to bed hungry, and families going without the basic necessities to sustain life. It's shameful, and smacks of lousy stewardship in our Government, and the greed of the selfish.

Well, apparently its a little better for my company. Last year we had furlough days every other week starting in May. This year we were told not to expect them. But that's just my small corner of the world. I realize not everyone has work.

The stocking up on sale is a great idea! we do that here to - i have my stock pile shelves I try to keep full with whatever I can get for a great price that we'll use and will keep.

Good luck to all weathering this economic situation!
