Well I had sushi yesterday as a get together with my friends and to secretly celebrate George W. Bush getting kicked out of the White House. But I have to say that there is a lot of hype behind Barack Obama. This is going to be "the best of times, the worst of times" by far for my generation. For my generation is in their mid 20s relying on credit and spends alot instead of saving a lot. If the hype is worth it will remain to be seen.
Do not get me wrong: the dollar will fall and there will be countries left and right trying to remove their peg from the USD. It will happen and Obama cannot reverse it. More people will lose jobs before things improve. Unlike other presidents who come from the land of Ivy, Barack Obama earns my respect because he can from a one parent family, went through college on multiple scholarships and got his degree through merit. Also he did not take the corporate way out: he rejected a bunch of Fortune 500 jobs in order to help welfare divisions in Chicago Illinois. That is impressive. And what better way to appeal to the people by having your inaguration on Martin Luther King day. This will definately set in stone which ethicity he idenifies himself with. I mean Time magazine already gave him Man of the Year for 2008.
Pepsi has set up a letter widget that will allow you to write a letter to the Obama administration. Who knows how much they are making off the deal, but now is the time to really let your voice be heard. With an 80% approval rating so far, we do stand a chance of surviving as a nation. For while, I thought the U.S. will completely go under, but we might hang on by the skin of our teeth. If you are interested in contacting him, Yahoo.com has it on their front page. I asked him to back the dollar with gold, but I will more than likely be called a conspiracy nut by his cabinet. However the best way out of an inflating fiat is to back the fiat by something of value and eliminate fiat.
This is perhaps the window of oppertunity to get the floodgates open. That widget will not be on Yahoo forever. If you want to have a chance of contacting the president, this is the best way to do this.
