Cliché Series # 2: Racing Against the Sun, by Doug “Uncola” Lynn

Doug “Uncola” Lynn examines another cliché at the burningplatform.com:

We all get busy.  So much to do, so little time.  I don’t know about you, but I can’t stand around talking all day; I have a lot to get done and I’m losing daylight.  Career commitments, family obligations, cooking, cleaning, shopping, mowing lawn, gardening, appointments, meetings, volunteering, reading, studying, writing, or working out; the clock is always ticking; the deadlines constantly looming.

Therefore, we must:  Make hay while the sun shines.

But what does this mean exactly?  It means nightfall is coming; the darkness lurking.  But why the hurry?  What’s the rush? After all, haste makes waste and all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.  Right?  Personally, I been waiting for the end of the world since 2013, yet somehow, it’s always the same, year after year.  I’m starting to get impatient.  In fact, if the bombs don’t fall soon, I’m going to get my gun and start shooting people.  Just KIDDING.

But seriously, since the election of Donald Trump, most all of the reported economic indicators are up: GDPEmployment, Consumer Confidence; and what about those stock markets, huh?  Wow!  They defy gravity, with the S & P 500, Nasdaq, and Dow Industrials all reaching record highs last month.  Of course, not one for modesty, the Donald is all too willing to take the credit.  On July 31, 2017 he tweeted:

Highest Stock Market EVER, best economic numbers in years, unemployment lowest in 17 years, wages raising, border secure, S.C.: No WH chaos!

  1. Always enjoy your work. Keep proper context. I have been waiting for the world to end since the sixties. There have been a few false starts. while the rot remorselessly eats away at our heritage, but such falsehoods aside, it remains the best of times in the best of places!
