Do you believe we are going to be blamed and taxed and made to pay for this big bad government mess going on since WE were in school. (a bit of sarcasm, for over 40'ish moms )
And is the economy the blame anyhow?
What is the chance that our children will all become Joe Plumber? Well the U.S. maybe, but can we just leave the other stuff for all the other countries? just sayin, high tech is over the top, and we need to cut back on these things some, at least cell phones.
can we all just become basic needs ever once again. ?
I know that the Amish sect has indeed been fine for years, and we could do the same, so why all the competitive high tech/
What happened to being basic -- needs?

Yeah, I think shelter was left off your list. I'm also having difficulty seeing what your question is. Are you asking if we'll have to go back to just the basics (food, shelter, & clothing) in order to turn around the economy? My guess is no. Although I don't technically need anything more than food, shelter, & clothing in order to survive, I do require other things in order to accomplish my job (quick transportation, electronic devices, etc.) and raise children who will be competent members of society (education and school supplies).

So the question is can we live with the basics?
Sure, it can be done. Personally I don't have all the latest gizmo's of techy stuff and don't need it or have use for it.
Simple is better. =]
