We are finally seeing some signs of hope for the economic recovery. With the reappearance of small business loans, it seems the eggs may be cracking and some new ideas are hatching. It really would be a fabulous time for trust and confidence to begin to replace fear and skepticism Given the right tools, America will make it happen just as we have several times before.

It is apparent that there will always be those that seek gimmickry and sneaky ways to separate us from our dollars. These characters are so creative at the shell game that we must remain on our toes.
