This symbol of PEACE created by: Katharine Hamnett
A wonderful video that a friend shared with me and now I have the pleasure of sharing with you.

Hope you enjoy it and after today's news of a horrific plot to decapitate African-Americans with the chosen site of a high school and move up the ladder to murder Barrack Obama, I think we can all join in with these ladies and say "Knock it off, we demand JUSTICE & PEACE".

So I leave you for now with my most fervent wish: PEACE to all.


I am back to post the following about what happened regarding the death plot against Senator Obama.

Skin heads had plotter to murder him after murdering 88 African Americans from a predominantly black high school. 14 of those were to be beheaded. The last one would be Barrack Obama, whom they were going to drive into with a car while shooting at him.

It is all pretty gruesome and downright frightening.

However, I have learned something about these metally deficient morons. The number 8 and 14 are meaningful to them based on their distorted ideology that combines Hitler with their concept of protecting their white children from being contaminated by non-whites.

Two 8's represent Heil Hitler and I have to stop talking about these animals because it is making me nauseous, but if you care to read a complete explanation, you can read more about it here.
McCain tied to racists groups and Sarah Palin as Governor of Alaska telling the Separatists Group that they are "Doing a great job".
Here is video of Paul Begala who has researched McCain extensively and written a book about him.

That is enough for today. PEACE.

Early Voting


I can't urge you enough to vote early if your state offers early voting. Many people have found errors in their voter records, have not been allowed to vote because they had moved, or because they had been purged from the voter records.

Thankfully, they have time to rectify the situation and still have their votes counted. If they had waited until Election Day, they would have obtained a provisional ballot and by most accounts, Provisional Ballots are not counted.


Yes, women are held to a different standard. Period.

It does not matter how intelligent we are, how capable or how resourceful, the first thing people notice is how we look.

It should not be that way, but it is, so let's just accept it, because for all the protesting that goes on, we want to look nice, we do make a pretty package sometimes, and it should be noticed because Darn it! we are beautiful, sexy creatures and we have brains too!

What is hard to reconcile is the wasteful amount of money from tax payers supporting the Republican party to dress this woman AND her family!

When Cindy McCain spends 300K on the outfit (including the jewelery, please, let's be fair, the woman has incredibly expensive rocks...) it is perfectly fine and dandy because she was born and raised into wealth and this is their style of living and IT IS HER MONEY, so you go girl! spend it as you please, you do not owe anyone an explanation or need to apologize for flying throughout Arizona in your own private jet because as you stated "it is the only way to get around Arizona".

Even if I disagree with that last statement, because I have personally DRIVEN all over Arizona and my friends who work and live there do their commutes on a daily basis by CAR, I think that if Cindy McCain likes the pleasure and the comfort of travelling in her own private jet, it is her prerogative.

She owes us nothing.

However, this Sarah Palin and her family are the corporate welfare poster child.

In less than six (6) weeks, the RNC (Republican National Committee) has blown $150,000. See? the problems is that a) The cost of putting as many disgusting, repulsive and vilifying ads in Colorado is actually the same amount but since the RNC has run out of money and McCain is not getting any more contributions, they couldn't.

$150 thousand.... on clothing... for 6 weeks worth of what?

Until people starting talking about it, no one thought one thing about it. Now they say they will donate the clothes to charity.

I, for one, would like to see the trip of these travelling clothes after this woman and her family are done using them. Do you think we are going to see better dressed homeless people? Are we going to be able to pick them off the rack at Savers or Goodwill or the Salvation Army?.

I think not, but as Sarah said: "Perhaps so!"

This welfare Queen is irritated by the fact that people are paying attention, and the reason for this is that her welfare ways come all the way from the time she was Mayor and continued through her long (not!) career as Governor of Alaska.

From inflating her Wassila experience and neglecting to state that she had left a town with a surplus into practical bankruptcy, to building a sports complex that was not needed, to claiming that her husband... "Toooood!!!" had built their Alaska mansion with his bear hands and that of a couple of friends (he did not, the same people who built the Sports Complex built their home ... for "free"?)... Humm! I wonder how much the Sports Complex cost was padded to include the building of their luxury home?

How about charging the tax payers of Alaska $17,000 dollars to commute from work to HOME (you know, the home her hubby built with his own hands)?

More corporate welfare:

$20,000 to fly her daughters to events which they were not invited.

Over $40,000 to fly family members on vacations and family outings.

$10,000 to "help" defray the heating cost of her home last year.

This year, residents of Alaska (every man, woman and child) will receive $1,200 MORE each from the Oil Company's surplus tax Mrs. Palin signed off on. Let's see.... 5 kids, mom and dad.... humm... this year they get an additional $8,400! So, we add the previous $10,000 (which they still get) and we all know how to add... so....$18,400 straight to this family.

*I wonder how long I'd have to live in Alaska to qualify as a "resident"?... maybe if I just had a P.O. box at the post office..... *

You can read in greater detail right here.

Halloween is a-coming and I am suitably scared...

What I find scary beyond words is that this woman has ditched McCain as her running mate and is now running solo and vying for her political career, which includes a Presidential run in 2012.

Her little girl standing in front of a rally and being prompted to take the microphone and say: "vote for my mom". As if Sarah was running on her own. (Well, she is)

They say the rats are the first ones to jump ship and this is no exception. Her handlers are calling her a Diva that trusts no one and only believes in herself and what she wants to do. The proof is that they know she is not ready to go on her own and she is damaging McCain's campaign (which apparently she forgets, he is the one we would be voting for, not her).


Sarah Palin can't wait to lable Obama as a terrorist every chance she gets, but when it comes to herself, she clearly states that she will not be labeled as a "feminist" or anything else because, well, labels are just not right.

When asked if she would label as "Domestic Terrorist" abortion clinic Bombers, she could not bring herself to do so and McCain had to jump in and clarify it and get her out of that deep hole she kept digging herself into. He failed miserably.

You see, calling some parts of America as the "real America" and labeling others as "Anti-America" is just fine, but when it comes to herself, she has standards.... Double Standards!.

If you have the ability to follow her diatribe and watch McCain's body language and facial expressions at the same time, please take a look at this interview with Brian Williams. If it wasn't because these two feel entitled to the most powerful office in the land, this piece would be very funny. Instead, it is downright frightening!


Yeah... yeah, that's right... let the money go directly to the banks with the "intent" that they would renegotiate with the homeowners.

Let's see... this Congress has decided that the HONOR system with thieves and crooks, oportunistic, souless bastards is a good idea. How wrong can they be?. Well, plenty wrong, to use very poor Grammar....

They have decided that all this "free" tax payer money would go a long way on creating their own private Monopoly and start buying all the other weaker banks. And just like in Monopoly, it is nothing but paper so it does not hurt anyone, right?

Read about it in greater detail, right here.

Are we sutitably frightened yet? C'mon folks, get into the spirit of things and start screaming in fear because we are totally screwed.

More on political thoughts at a later time. If you know someone who is a spousal caregiver please direct them to for useful resources and help.

Thank you for following my blog.

Wishing you PEACE

Playing Hardball with a broken bat (or brain)

I feel sorry for Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann. I really do.

She is either a pathological liar or this woman has some mental health issues that are not under control.

She flat out told Chris Matthews of "Hardball" that Barrack Obama is anti-American and kept goading the media to re-direct their efforts and energy into an investigation of the US House of Representatives and the US Senate to uncover their anti-American sentiments/allegiances.

Are you F***ing kidding me? SHE IS a Congresswoman! is she thinking that she is palling around with terrorist when she shows up to work? (because frankly, I don't know when she has the time since she spends most of her time on CNN talking over everyone and interrupting at will.... except when she has that scary frozen smile and spooky eyes starring right into the camera). Seriously, the kids have walked into the room and looked at the t.v. and asked "what is wrong with her, mom?"

It is mind boggling that Michelle Bachmann would see anti-American people everywhere except to the far right. Including the Senate and House members as part of this group of .... what? People who live in America, are Americans, and don't hesitate to discuss the elephant in the room?

I got news for this nut job.... THAT IS THE AMERICAN THING TO DO!!!! You frikking moron!

Not all of us are mindless sheep meandering aimlessly towards the slaughter house. Some of us are actually willing to yell "Look Out!!!" to those around us in the hope of avoiding further carnage.

Watch the clip here

And then wonder how stable this woman is when she shows up in local t.v. stations in Minnesota (where she needs the votes to get re-elected) and denies having said what you just saw and claims it was misconstrued.... WTF?

Your lying eyes are deceiving your lying ears and she is telling you this right here:


Have we not had enough mental defectives, amoral people and thieves in charge? Do we need more?

If so, let's get another 4 yrs of this and add Sarah Palin to the next 4 as the President of the United States *shiver*

It is scary to think that the lowest denominator has been riled up to vote and feel patriotic by attacking another party on the basis of race and name calling and flat out lies, such as being a terrorist, too black, not black enough, fear mongering, and are about as informed as full context of a bumper sticker.

That alone, that those types of uninformed people, who scorn those who have worked hard to obtain an education and are the ones who chose the current administration and now are being riled up to chose the next one.

Scary stuff man! Halloween is a-coming by way of an election.


JOE THE PLUMBER = An ignoramus who loved being a celebrity and has given more free willing interviews than Sarah Palin..... Also a man who on camera was explained the full context of both tax plans and admitted that under Obama's plan he would be better off.... Also... a man whose aunt called a talk show and stated that "he is a good boy, he just got caught up on all the attention and being a celebrity..." When asked if her nephew was a well informed voter she responded: "No, he is not.. not very bright, but he is a good boy"

ELITIST = Those born with a silver spoon and don't understand how to live on $2,000 a month. Let alone think that people live on that and a lot less since one of their wives outfits cost over $300,000 and it is to be worn only once....

*I was going to link articles to the outfit/jewelery combined costs and the fact that Michelle Obama buys her clothes the same way we do... Off the rack!, but unfortunately, there were other people's posts included with the articles and they were incredibly nasty about Cindy (regarding her Botox, plastic surgeries, etc) and I just wanted to highlight the disconnect in lifestyle, not criticize or put them down for being wealthy*


Yes! we are a Nation of whiners! as aptly described by McCain's Chief Financial Advisor who has made it to CNN's list of crooks that caused this financial debacle in Wall Street (Senator Gramm) and you can see the partial list here.

Perfect example? McCain, who was born to a sailor (Admiral) and lived in Plushness all his life. (except when he was captured by those he was bombing and spend time in their company)

Was a serial cheater. Married his mistress who has more money than God and more houses than a real state agent.

SOCIALIST = A new word thrown around to depict Obama by McCain who has had Socialized Medicine all of his life (remember daddy, the Admiral?) as a dependent he had medical from the military (paid by you), as a lousy pilot, he has free room and board and that pesky socialized medicine. As a Senator... well, you get the idea, you have paid for his health care all of his life and ... well, he is old, and that is a very long time.... Hey, guess what?

TERRORIST = Only in this country would anyone be so incredibly stupid to believe that a US SENATOR is a terrorist. Under the current administration, the Patriot Act would have assured him a room in Guantanamo Bay.

A woman shouted to Obama in a diner that he was a COMMUNIST! (stupid, ignorant and poorly informed racist bitch!)... I wanted to be kinder, but it is impossible for me to do so at this point in time, when there are so many stupid and ignorant people making the news on a daily basis.

Perhaps a better definition of TERRORIST could be the Todd Palin's separatist group called the Alaska Independence Party (AIP) at which Caribou Barbie gave the key note speech and told them "you are guys are doing great!". Very reminiscent of "Browny you are doing a great job!" (Bush to Brown during Katrina). Sleeping with the enemy is apparently okay if you are on the side of God.

Here is an excerpt from the full article in the Los Angeles Times:

Over the years, Palin has actively courted the Alaska Independence Party,
or AIP, an organization that supports Alaskan secession from the U.S. To be
clear, we're not necessarily talking about friendly secession either: As the
AIP's founder, Joe Vogler, told an interviewer in 1991: "The fires of hell are
frozen glaciers compared to my hatred for the American government. ... And I
won't be buried under their damn flag."

LAPEL PIN = A symbol to show the world your patriotism or any other lapel pin to show your affiliations to Religion or party.

The proper way to wear a pin: Criticize those who don't wear one (perhaps because they are made in China and not the USA) and don't mention the one with the polar bear on your right side (which is the symbol of the Alaska Independence Party) and you wear to almost every event.

Click on the highlighted words to not only view their logo (worn on Mrs. Palin's lapel) but also their by-laws. Should you wish to be better informed about who these people really are.

SOCIAL SECURITY = The benefits your gramma & grampa contributed to so they would not have to eat dog food made in China in their last years of their life and what McCain wants to privatize and cut in half.... and yet...

.... McCain has been collecting social security checks for years (do you really think that if he was so against it, he would just return it to the treasury?, no can do... he is entitled to all these government programs even though he has more money than God!)

MEDICARE = Horror of Horrors.... A government run health care insurance that you contribute for and towards your old age, you know, when you just can't physically do what you do anymore and feel lousy most of the time...

....yes! he wants that gone too because HIS tax payer sponsored medical will never go away (even though, he could pay for it out of pocket easily. Neither him nor his wife will run out of money before they die)

Let's talk about the child that receives medicare because he/she has "special needs" ... you know... like the last kid born to Sarah Palin, except that he/she will and has been born to people who are busting their humps to provide the basic needs in life while fearing for their jobs and holding on to what little they have so their kids don't do without.

However, McCain will cut well over a trillion dollars from Medicare to give directly to the insurance companies and you can read about it in this New York Times article

Apparently, this man really knows nothing about what is like to walk in your $20.00 shoes.

ELITIST (part 2) = Anyone who works his/her ass off from poverty and middle class to achieve their educational goals while working 2 jobs and taking out student loans and surviving on Ramen noodles. God Damn the Middle Class! who the hell do they think they are? Don't they know their place? How dare they be educated?

This is the problem with America and these pesky Americans who refuse to stay down and let La Creme de la creme keep rising to the top on their backs without complain and dare to move up in the world through hard work and perseverance.

Stupid Elitist Middle Class people! How dare they?

We all know that those who produce nothing are the ones entitled to live high off the hog (think Wall Street, please)

This has got to be the only country were educated people are looked down on and made fun of... Everywhere else in the world an educated population is highly prized, even in 3rd world countries..... Go figure!

PEACE to all

If there are any problems with your registration or at the voting place, you will still have time to straighten things out before the last day you are allowed to vote.

Make your vote count and your voice heard regardless of party affiliation, as Americans, this is just not a right we all share but an obligation that requires very little of our time and keeps us involved in our communities.

The Presidential election is important, espcially at a time where we find outselves at a crossroads in the financial arena, but just as important are the other changes that every community is requesting in terms of taxes and road improvements and school financing.

There are many things in each of our ballots that have an almost immediate impact in (Y)our community and are just as deserving of attention.

I voted early, yesterday as a matter of fact, and the place was packed! ~ I expect that Election Day is going to be a mad house for those who wait until the last minute or are still undecided and won't know who to vote for until the very last minute.

Which brings me to another thought: Are these people living under a rock? Are they truly as unimformed as the media has portrayed them to be?

I know that the official title is "low information voter", I guess my question is, "are they low information on purpose?"

And if so, do these people even bother to vote?

I heard from somone who has some very strong opinions, cemented in his brain by years of missinformation and adopted from his elders decades ago.

After listening to all the things he did not know and the major lack of current information he had, I learned that he is not even registered to vote in this election and has not voted in an election in over 10 years. His wife is registered and voted for Bush twice. She will vote Republican again, because that is what she is supposed to do.

These people are victims of the predatory lending practices that has plagued our Nation and will be loosing their homes shortly. The company he works for will be scaling down before Christma and his job will be gone. He will join the ranks of the unemployed.

However, he still talked trash about all politics and is not going to vote. I guess the real question is: "why did I have to listen to him?" ~ Truly, that is an hour of my life, I'll never get back. Maybe if I think about it long and hard, I may find a valuable lesson in this, at this time, I am not confident about the results.

Hope you vote early and vote your best interests, whatever they may be.

Hey! We have a plan! ~ not a good one... but...

Bush's plan: Socialize the country.

My plan: Impeach Bush and his administration, Make the Attorney General work overtime and indicte all these morons on Wall Street.

Throw all of them in prison with the general population and see if, through personal experience, they can come up with a cohesive plan for prison reform.

Seriously, now we own the banks? there were banks who did not want to participate and they are being forced to.

Jimminy Crikets! whatever happened to keeping the government small and as far away from the business community as possible?

I know what you are going to say.... that they made such a mess of things with being cowboys without regulations, oversight or a concience that they needed the help of the government to get out of this mess..... but really folks!

Do we have to go to the extremes and never stop in the middle?

The middle?

The middle?

Yes! the middle, the MIDDLE CLASS!

Silly me. What was I thinking?

Feel free to peruse our new Viceroy's thinking into this mess right here

In the meantime, we are loosing tons of jobs. I don't care how good American workers are, if there are no jobs where they can prove themselves, all we have is unemployed Americans.

My prayes tonight go to the workers in Michigan whose GM plant is closing down. As if Michigan did not have enough unemployed people already!


How horrific it must be to sit around the kitchen table and come out of denial and into the glaring realization that you, as a parent, can no longer feed or house your children.

I don't know how to find the kind of selfless love in my heart to drop my kids off in a hospital because I can't take care of them anymore. I think I would make us all suffer and live together under a bridge with a tent and a shopping cart while begging for food and money on a daily basis.

Of would I?

Maybe not.

Maybe seeing them suffer alongside with me would brake my heart into pieces. Maybe letting them go to total strangers who can feed and shelter them this winter would be preferable to watching them die of hunger, disease or hypothermia. Maybe they would still be able to get an education after all.

In the meantime, while I ponder these horrific possibilities, some parents have already made that decision to make sure that their kids are better taken care of by others than they can do themselves and driven to Nebraska, where the law says you can drop off a kid at any hospital without repercussion or questions asked.

18 kids so far.

You can read about it here.

I wonder how many others go to relatives, friends... I wonder how many families are being separated, split into pieces, scattered to the wind and to different states. How many siblings are separated....

Oh God! it just makes me sick!

In the meantime, I wonder if those in Washington are getting a clue that the "trickle down economics" has never worked and people are in dire straights right now and that human beings require food and shelter on a daily basis.

It is appalling to me that no one has come up with the idea of giving every man and woman 18 and over at the very least $250,000 to stimulate the economy, pay their bills while they search for a job, create a business, feed their families.

Why must everything be about the institutions?

What about the everyday American?

Who is looking out for you and yours?

Man! this just sucks today.

That last story just kills me.

Leave me a comment, let me know you are there, let me know what you think.

PEACE to you and yours.

It's the economy, stupid!


People are desperate and garage sales are a-plenty. So are the increases in sales and profits of such note worthy organizations as the Salvation Army who uses its proceeds to provide homeless people, drug addicts, etc with rehabilitation and drug treatment as well as job training.

It is unfortunate that people are selling their lives in order to survive. It has gotten so bad, that in Indiana they are being limited to one garage sale per month.

Every time I think we are barely making it, I look around and have to count our blessings. We still have a roof over our head and I can smell the dinner cooking in the oven and explain to the youngest that "yuck" is not the name of tonight's dinner, it is called a "thank you".... thank you we have it.

Some schools across the Nation, I belive Utah is one of them, are only having school for kids 4 days a week to cut costs. I know my kids probably would prefer this setup, but I aim to make them realize how fortunate they are that our state is still holding on and not having to make those choices. I have no idea how long they can hold out, but for now.... we are hanging in there.

The New York Times had the following article on how people are holding garage sales in order to survive, feel like reading about some of our neighbors?, when you are done, say a silent prayer for their well being, their getting jobs and their lives back on track. I'll add mine to yours. Read this

At some point we are going to have to get our heads from under the rushing currents and take a deep breath and a quick look around.


Because the only terrorists I am concerned about right now are the financial terrorist and I have seen them in plain view making deals, shoving them down the throat of unsuspecting, nay! shocked and numbed Americans and the latest is ..... drum roll, please!.....

... They have all gathered in beautiful Dubai. Ruters has the full article here: and it is truly bothersome. I mean, it should bother someone .... shouldn't?

Okay, it bothers me.

Just so you don't think I am totally humorless, let me leave you now with some "Bushisms" that apply to our economic times and at some level, this man may actually be a prophet..... Oy!

"We got plenty of money in Washington. What we need is more priority." --George W. Bush, Washington, D.C., June 2, 2008

"I'll be long gone before some smart person ever figures out what happened inside this Oval Office." --George W. Bush, Washington, D.C., May 12, 2008

"Wait a minute. What did you just say? You're predicting $4-a-gallon gas? ... That's interesting. I hadn't heard that." --George W. Bush, Washington, D.C., Feb. 28, 2008

"Let's make sure that there is certainty during uncertain times in our economy." -- George W. Bush, Washington, D.C., June 2, 2008

Take a breather from humans and enjoy the show

Medicare, Racial Hatred, Voter Caging

Today I was going to speak about the economy, but unfortunately, more recent events is going to have me add things that I am ashamed of, disgusted by, and frankly, in absolute horror.

I will tell you this,

If your spouse is in dire need of medical attention because they are disabled, voting for McCain is going to make your life and that of your spouse a living nightmare.

McCain wants to private social security and no doubt, that since he knows next to nothing about the economy, he will defer to those he perceives as his friends and far more knowledgeable, like the crowd at Wall Street.

He made the statement that he wants to cut social security benefits in half.

Imagine those barely surviving on their current benefits attempting to survive on half. Just give it a moment of respect before you move on.

He wants to cut Medicare by 1.1 TRILLION dollars.

If you thought that it was difficult for your spouse to get the treatment and medication (s)he needs now, imagine without the funding.

Don't take my word for it, you can read it here

I am sick to my stomach.

Palin has accused repeatedly Obama of being in league with a domestic terrorist. A man that if he was just that, would be in prison now, but instead is a pillar of the community and has done tremendous work in educating and funding school programs in Chicago.

Obama was 8 years old when this man reacted violently and loudly against the VIETNAM war.

She keeps inciting hatred and fear to the point that someone in the audience came up with the brilliant idea of shouting "KILL HIM" about Obama.

A normal human being would have been horrified to hear something like that about her statements to a crowd and would have tried to diffuse the situation. She did not. She kept on going.

Read about it here:

Hatred in the white crowd towards an African American who was the sound person for her rally:

Hatred agains jews because her church tells her all she needs to know about people:

Replace all Jewish bankers with Christian Bankers. Jews are worthy of your hatred, here, read all about it:

For anyone filled with fear and hatred, common sense and the real issues will not trump their sense of reality, their prejudices and their racial hatred.

ommon sense, reason and things that really matter will never matter to someone like that. Racism will trump and color everything they do in their life.

A man was hunted down like an animal after he left a store because he was wearing an Obama T-Shirt.

The story and picture is here.

If you are white, this is enough to embarrass you into distancing yourself from these ignorant bastards.

Fear mongering and hatred do not belong in my life or in my heart. I know what's in my heart and I am voting not just for Obama but against the hatred and ignorance that has found such a cozy home with Palin and McCain.



Ohio voter caging. read what happened here:

You need to read this and see if you are still in the roasters and able to vote. Here is the dirty download on Colorado:

Provisional ballots are wothless and apparently, so are absentee ballots. Voting early is recommended so your vote is counted.

Waiting until election day could find you unable to vote.

Good luck to us all.

150 Billion dollars

One million for you
One for me
One for him
One for her

300 million Americans. For argument's sake 1/2 of them are 18 and over.

Everyone gets 1 million.

That is the amount of pork they added to this lousy 700 billion (plus the pork) bailout.

They can't possibly have you using this money, quitting your job and not delivering the food supplies, or showing up to work and opening the store.

So, no. You don't get to be trusted with money. You may use it to pursue your idea of happiness, and we can't have you happy.

We must, instead, trust the "professionals" who have no idea how much money they truly need and are the ones who got us into this mess in the first place.

How about this.... a new "stimulus package" ... how about $500 dollars this time around? After all, the energy bills this winter are bound to be higher than last year.

Or, How about $250,000 per tax payer?

It is not enough to quit your job but enough to give you a nest egg.


Because since we are adding $150 Billion in pork to the obscene $700 Billion Bail out.... let's grease the working stiffs too.

This time instead of the "trickle down economics" let's try the direct approach and cut each citizen and decent check instead of the insulting amounts that barely buy you a tank of gas and a bag of groceries.

It is akin as being Oliver Twist and begging for another bowl of porridge. How degrading!

The stock market has not recovered.... surprised?

However, my bank just sent me an email to tell me that I am pre-approved for a new mortgage. One I don't need, but they are dying to make.

Have they not learned anything?

PEACE to you all and may your week be a good one.

More on the Fleecing of America

All I have to say today is that I am disgusted.

First it was too much money and now they are adding more pork to it.

300 million Americans.

For the sake of simplicity, let's say 150 million are 18 and over.

Give everyone a Million dollars minus the full amount of their mortgage which gets paid to the bank.

Most people would have a substancial amount to invest, pay for college, save, put under the mattress, open a business, re-inject their small business with inventory/improvements, etc.

Since the banks have now gotten the full payment for the mortgages, they are fine.
Since the homeowners got their house paid for. They are fine.
Those without a house can now afford to buy one cash. Building industry grows. Employment grows, manufacturing grows.

IRS and FBI working to the fullest to imprison and confiscate assets from the top down.

On C-Span yesterday I heard the rep from California explaining something I had not heard before:

All these funds are going to China and The Saudi family. There is no way to find out what is truly worthless and what will be bundled up with things that are viable.

I was viewing this bailout as a huge scam on the American People.

Now, I view it as treason.

Your views will be very different, I am sure, but I am disgusted beyond words.

Obama and McCain and the rest of the Senate dissapointed me greatly. They had a unique opportunity to take care of the people they represent first and not the Wall Street moguls.

Did you know that in addition to the 25 million Golden parachute, the CEO's salaries are over 1 million a month?

That this "cap" on the Golden Parachute does not affect their salaries and in addition, since their compensation bonus would be reduced, there is nothing in this bill that would cap their salaries?

So, if they "only" get 10 million parachutes, there is nothing in this bill to stop their salaries from increasing to 2 or 3 million a month.


How soon can we all get one of these jobs that reward us so hansomely for being major screw ups?

Let's not blame the homeowners shall we? Let's get real. No one would have gotten these mortgages if regulations where in place.

Some people qualified for traditional mortgages but the bonuses where into getting people in the risky mortgages.

I have excellent credit and a low fixed rate mortgage. I can't tell you how many times I have been called by the bank to re-finance, take money out and get an adjustable rate that is 2 points lower than the safe mortgage I had to begin with.

We have common sense. We said no. Thank God.

Wish other people had been able to do that too.
