5 Things You Should Worry About Now

The news is damn depressing lately.  These problems should be at the top of your big, fat, hairy problems list:
  1. The whole Israel-Iran thing (Israel is marching off a cliff here and we are marching right along behind them.  Lovely.)
  2. Unless you have been playing the cotton futures, this is bad news.
  3. Ditto with oil futures; this will be a problem, no doubt compounded by #1 above.
  4. It may just be my perception but it seems as if each year, natural disasters increase.
  5. And this little gem which completely ignores the constitution, due process, and all of that innocent until proven guilty stuff.

  1. Re natural disasters:

    Thus the bottom line is that there is no indication that natural disasters are increasing, but (a) their cost in property damage is increasing, and (b) the statistics are skewed by a few very rare, severe events.

    Others say better reporting, more people in affected areas

    But are they natural disasters or human caused?
