Dip # 2 or 3

Well, inexperience has once again cost us a shot at recovery. It seems as though we are too busy trying to make history, then advance into the future with dignity. I am talking about politics here. Bad policies. The lobbying, the corruption, the 2 party system, even the tea party, they are all worthless.

We need local governments to start having town hall meetings, instead of meeting with lobbyists. We need JOBS! We need local governments to pave the way. Washington is deaf, blind, and ineffective. They are purely out of touch with reality. The real political scene exists where you make a difference and unless you are delivering a large campaign donation, you are not even glanced at in Washington. Locally however, you would be surprised at how easy it is to be a part of the process. The more people that get involved, the more likely it is that your local representatives will start bringing your ideas to the table. The ideas that can help create jobs may very well be from a similar process. If politicians had the answers, we would not be in this situation now.

Be advised also that more layoffs are inevitable. State and Local Governements will be laying off thousands at the start of the new fiscal year (July). There is just not enough tax revenue generated to keep up with growth. I just read a report that only 51% pay federal taxes and most people pay very little in state taxes. I think the overall problem here is the 51% who pay taxes have the other half voting how their Money gets spent. Too many are getting a free ride and that needs to change. Everybody in, I say. Put up, or shut up. That should be the new federal policy and strategy. Get everybody working and invested in the system, then you can make adjustments or overhauld. You need people too busy to complain, and generating money to make the needed change.

I will applaud the CT Political scene though, the current legislative session is trying alot of new things, like decriminalizing marijuana possession. This ought to save the court system alot of time and expense. I do not smoke or even recommend you do so, but at the same time, my opinion is that if you want to, why shouldn’t you? If you are not harming anyone else, then light up! Of course, please be responsible in doing so and do not drive or smoke in an environment where there are minors.

I think the key to recovery for this economy is in local government, not federal. In fact, I think the federal scene in Washington is impervious to recovery. I think that local governments need to look at being more independent. Why should federal law dictate local laws? If some areas want to try something new, to see if an idea works better or worse, so be it. They should!

As for Gold & Precious Metals, all is looking good. Even jewelry demand in India is back up. More euro debt fears, more US housing and jobs problems. No end in sight. Scrap sales are still rising, surprisingly. Who new all of you people held on to so much gold. If you are selling, call us so you don’t get ripped off!

Hey, if you are unemployed and bored, go and volunteer somewhere. Keep working, remain relevant. Go pan for gold, go mine gold at tag sales, recover scrap metals from junk piles, do something to make a few buck and learn something new.

Also, for those of you wondering, I have hired new employees  and I am taking alot of time off? Sort of, I am working, on new projects:

one is my Wife’s new invention and business: www.flipflopspa.com

The other is the expansion of ctgoldbuyers. I will say don’t mind the new employees, they are trained to serve you just as I would. They do not pay any less either. My long term goal is to have multiple stores running on one ideal of serving our customer base with the best available buying service in the USA. I am developing strategies now that will enhance your experience and maintain high payout points.

Last, I am trying to enjoy the summer after being buried all winter under snow and ice.

Enjoy the weather,

Joe
