Still depressed. Maybe more so than yesterday. I figure very, very bad times are ahead and my mind is scrambling to somehow get prepared. I know there will be attacks on my faith because those are already happening. I feel good about being prepared for those: "For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong." Through the Holy Spirit I can stand fast for my faith.
I am sure that bad economic times are ahead as well -- worse times, I mean. I'm worried about health insurance -- not really for me, but for Alex and Alisha. I think unemployment is going to get much, much worse as taxes rise on the so-called rich. The House is a firewall, but the tentacles of Obamacare will be so entrenched after the next four years that it can never be undone -- until, of course, there is simply no more money and the safety net collapses. Every day for the next eighteen years 11,000 people become eligible for Medicare. Every single day. How is their Social Security and Medicare going to be afforded? I feel horrible for my child, for my grandchildren. I apologize to them; I never wanted it to be this way.
