The Aztec's have a god of renewal. Xipe Totec. aka's are: "Red Smoking Mirror" and "Night Drinker". This is all real folks, so pay attention. Wears the skins peeled from their sacrificial victims. Suggested reading if you can deal with seeds losing their outer layer as part of germination and snakes shedding their skin.
Had more to do with "life, death, and rebirth" in agriculture than in the finance field, but he may be more of what we need in Washington right now. Better qualified than the current charlatan's.

"Hey, back off, I am trying to dig a hole here, if code enforcement or the EPA did not send you, then turn that camera off". (I hate those paparazzi types.) Life is no longer simple here in the pasture. The Federal Gov. does so much for those big hamburger chicken wing types, but nothing for us simple grass cutter, pasture hole diggers. Next thing u know, they will try to put a UPC on cows and expect us to register current addresses, carry that GPs stuff and try and track our movements, duh, track the hay bails and you might figure out my next movement. (hey-you check it out, no matter how you spell "bail", it deals with custody, release, court appearances, all bad stuff) I guess that I can not expect much from my government since I did not provide funds to any politician. Lessons learned. No moe moo here.

Here we have the pasture crew practicing for the upcoming super bowl. Mixed up the coin toss procedure. Toss the ball then play with the coin. Brown team is Max and the Black team is Buck-Shot. Halftime entertainment will be provided by the calves in the front pasture. Snacks provided by Rose (purveyor of fine pasture cuisine).
No animals were injured while filming this workout.

Ezekiel the burro does a great rendition of Caruso's opera "I LEVITATE". Sugar the pony (aka: Sweet & Low) tries a pasture version of allegro but is no match for Ezekiel's abilities in the vocal and in the dance.
Which brings us to the economy. The country is broke, our elected officials have made sure of that, and our new President's plan is to spend more of our money prior to the world saying "no more credit". Keep your fingers crossed.
Keep in mind that the people we are to rely on to fix this are the same ones who for 2 years or so said everything was great. Do not un-cross your fingers yet.
Our American leaders think that we are the ones who should decide how to "fix it" while we are the ones who put us into this mess. Yep, still keep those fingers crossed.
We are seeking to expand this country's credit and debt to aleviate a problem brought down upon us by a gross misuse of our credit and debt. Now cross those fingers really, really hard. If you do not believe in crossing your fingers, pray. If you do not believe in prayer, pray anyway, we will need it.
This has been the greatest country in the world. That has been proven time and time again. We need to live in the present and not in the past, we need to prepare to move into the future and not cling to our past.
Now I will go into the pasture and check on some of the important things in this world.
