You probably have the right idea,lie low,and observe.We took a gamble and backed off selling calves,till later in the month,could be a serious mistake on my part? I think you expressed a lot of folks thoughts in this post,and I've got real concerns that when these people,do see the wreck thats about to happen,that they will do a damn thing about it.I suppose we'll have to keep a little bit of opptamism?
Hold your nose and figure out how to personally profit from it. Live large, leave lots of booty for the kids, let them lead the way out of the darkness.
Meh - even I can't convince myself of the rightness of that.
Hunker down, make the best of it, put dreams of greatness on hold for a couple of years, muddle through with frugality - that's my plan.
