Outer Beauty can only please the Eye, but the Inner Beauty conquers the Heart. Inner Beauty is best seen in Diamonds, the most precious gemstones, which sparkle and shine when the Sun is out; but when the darkness sets in, they reveal their true beauty with illuminating light from within. No matter what others say or do, you must remember that you are a Diamond, and you must preserve your Divine Spark of Inner Beauty to illuminate the world.

Outside Input Our entire lives are simply a process of experiencing the stimulus presented... The degree to which we allow stuff to affect us is mostly an inherent response. Truly...crap happens no matter how directed our lives may be. Fortunately we, as us, have kinda developed to a level that most of us be conscious. When we exercise our ability to choose our reactions to that which occurs about us, regardless of what others response be, we grow more able to avoid stupid stuff. What occurs outside of us can, but not always, have an effect on what be happening inside us. It could be good to strengthen our ability to choose our responses. Know Yer Loved, CWD

Over the long term, if government revenues continue to be less than the expenditures (deficit), then the economic health of the country worsens because this will result in accumulated debt. An increasing government debt will result in higher interest payments, and less money available for socioeconomic development. To pay for the debt, the government will have to raise taxes, which will reduce the competitive position of the country in the global economy and chase investors away resulting in less economic activities and more job losses. In order to avoid higher unemployment and social instability, the government have to raise more debt to fund spending and welfare support by raising the interest rate which will increase the cost of money, reduce corporate profits and slow economic investments, thus resulting in more job losses and reduced government revenues, despite income tax increases. It is what I call a vicious economic cycle.

Over the long term, if government revenues continue to be more than expenditures (surplus), then the economic health of the country improves, because the government can afford to invest in development projects such as research and development, education and infrastructure. With more income, the government can also afford to lower taxes, which increases corporate profits and attracts more foreign investors, resulting in more economic activities, creating more jobs and enlarging consumer spending and government revenues despite income tax cuts. It is what I call a virtuous economic cycle.
