| ||So much for the prosperity gospel Joel!|
I was just watching Joel Osteen on Larry King, and I'm sorry but he just cracks me up. A few short months ago, he was preaching the prosperity gospel. Do such and such, and you will make money!
Now, with the economy going into the tank, unemployment accelerating at rates not seen since World War II... it's all about thinking positive! We will get through this! And he was asked about the bailouts, etc. and the answers were so vacuous. He had NO IDEA about bailouts, credit crisis, pumping liquidity, the danger of naked short selling. "I don't know about that kind of stuff, I just say pray for our leaders to have wisdom". What an idiot. But he smiles a lot, so he is a silly, happy buffoon.
If you don't know about "that kind of stuff" get down off the stage, hey? He tells people to "expect the best year next year". He is a smily goofball. His wife too. "God, I believe you're in control... I believe there are good days ahead..." I'm sorry, this is funny!
My question is this. What happened to your prosperity message now? Joel, you said, if you tithe, and do the good deeds, have the faith, you will prosper. Now that things are going to shit - hey we will get through this! It's up to us to believe!
I wonder when people are going to wise up, get real, and understand that these people are a bunch of clowns! Wasn't the George Bush gospel enough to convince you that these "leaders" are not the sharpest tools in the shed?
He says don't take a victim mentality. I FOR SURE DO NOT. I understand what Paulson and Bernanke are doing to flood liquidity and manipulate the markets. I understand how to counter those forces. I know how to create a strategy to avoid being manipulated. But for sure I am not going to sit, raise my hands to the sky and go WOO HOO! Good days are ahead!!
He says "don't be fearful - don't be negative". OK I (Gary Fong) am not fearful, I am not negative, I am PRAGMATIC. I see what's going on and I'm making countersteps. I am not defeated, I am empowered knowing the larger trends, and preparing for them.
But to stand up in a football stadium smiling ridiculously and waving your hands in the air while giving this guy (who flies around in a private jet) a check from your limited funds, while you are drowning in debt, then hey send him a big fat check. Why not get it over with? Sheesh.
