Vegas has rebounded since the last recession hit. We have property increasing each month now bringing stability to the city. We have sports franchises here now, with the Knights heading to the Stanley Cup. We have the Raiders on the way. Everything is looking good on the horizon.
We have to remember with the prices we are at we are in a bubble once again and will eventually have another crash in the near future. According to the Review Journal we have witness increases in home values up to 31.2% in some areas of the Vegas Valley. https://www.reviewjournal.com/business/housing/home-values-growing-in-las-vegas-valley/
Be aware in 2007- 2008 when we crashed it was due to outsiders overpaying for our properties and it is happening again today. Interest rates are increasing as the economy continues to flourish. Just stay vigilant as there is trouble brewing. No one can predict the next downfall to the exact date and year, however they have been close on many occasions and today there are indicators a recession is looming.

I have seen articles these past few days concerning individuals around the world who felt suicide was the only cure for what ailed them. Smiling depression seems to be one of the causes of the untimely deaths of a few of these individuals.
My daughter told me about this common, but yet seemingly unheard of depression that is much more common than you would imagine. According to statistics she informed me 73% of the people in America suffer from this depression.
As many parents have stated in their twitter accounts and blogs, be nice to those around you and hug the ones you love so they feel they have value and worth as a human being. When you suffer, you usually suffer alone. Not wanting to trouble others with your problems, or insecurities.
You are not alone. Talk with your family, talk with your friends, talk with someone wherever you may be, it \could save your life and help you to understand that there are many great opportunities ahead.
We all have been through some type of depression in our lives. Smiling depression appears to be the most common as no one can read behind the joy, happiness and exuberance for life projected until the final breath comes on this Earth. Reality hits and many say, “I never saw it coming”. There is resources to help any loved one by going to websites or calling. I have listen one below that has access nationwide 24/7.

Often people are afraid to go after it is they really want to do in life. Whether the fear comes from internal frustration or external rejection we all have to deal with the truth of where we are.
When there are goals or dreams involved don’t let anyone stop you from achieving what you desire in your life. Many will tell you, you’re to small, to tall, you talk funny, you’re not smart enough and the list goes on and on but don’t let those people suppress the accomplishments you feel a drive for. Remember it’s your dream, live it.
No one can stop you from accomplishing anything in life but you. So go after what you want, need desire and never give up because of others. It’s okay to change goals after you find out they are not really what you want, or you have new visions toward a new destiny. Just never stop believing in yourself, go live your dream.

I have been off Patriot Express the past 2 years as my mother has Alzheimer’s and is staying with me. It was my decision to spend the time with her while she still had the wherewithal to understand and enjoy the moments shared with family and friends.
We have been working to understand the issues associated with the disease which has been passed down to the women on her side for the last 3 generations. She always was concerned that the girls would end up with the Alzheimer defect and wished they would come up with a cure so no one else would have to struggle as she and many others do.
Ma is doing well considering what we will experience in the near future as the disease continues to erode the quality of life she once knew. Her humor is still intact even though she can not remember what she said or what happened seconds ago.
Each day we try to log something on video to document the good with the not so good. For an 80 something year old she doesn’t complain about much.
Now I am going to attempt to bring back the Patriot Express Radio network which was put together to bring truth to the issues we deem important. I look forward to the next adventure with great anticipation.

For the past year we have heard how an outsider didn’t have a chance running the United States of America if elected President. All commentaries from the big media outlets have blasted President Trump as inexperienced, racist, denigrating among a host of other slanted opinions.
Now we hear today Kim Jong In met with the leader of South Korea and announce they will end the war between the North and South. The President who could get this war to end happens to be an outsider with no political office ever held till the POTUS.
This has both parties shaking in their boots, If the president succeeds in all he promised on the campaign trail voters will no longer trust/need career politicians lying to it’s citizens each election cycle about what they will do for the country once elected..
For 50 years we have heard the same political speeches, then once elected the infamous, we can’t accomplish that goal, there is not enough support in the chamber.
Now we will wait and see just where President Trump will stand in history 20 years from now.
