Hey! It's Thursday morning and I am up and going and have read my morning round of survival blogs. It's a nice way to start the day. I have a bad prediction to live with. I thought the price of crude would drop like a stone this week but it has not. I sure hope it does. A lot of people out there depend on the stuff to live.
George Bush wants the Congress to hurry up and pass his emergency bail-out bill so he can reward all of his buddies in the banking and brokerage business before he gets out of office. He wants to have the complete control of the nations housing under his thumb, too. Can you imagine the awful laws that will get passed if we all pay the fedgov for our house? You will have CCTV cameras in every room. The alternate media has reported that 7% of the country is for the bailout and the rest of us are against it. Not that it is doing a damn bit of good but I called my representative and told him to vote NO on the bailout. But it MAY have a decent effect. The bastards in the House are up for re-election come the first Tuesday in November and even the American public can remember something for that long of a time.
The truth of the matter is that people do not want to bail-out the rich at the expense of the poor. I know what happens if "I" make a bad financial decision. I suffer the consequences. Why would Bush think the rich should not suffer for their mistakes? Seems like it is a little crooked to me! Especially with no judicial review over the Secretary of the Treasury regarding his decisions as to who gets what.
What goes around has come around and it is time to pay up or default. I am leaning toward default. I am sick of the whole lot of them.
Big Bear finally got his ass off his fingers and started writing again. And it was worth the wait. You can read him at http://www.bearridgeproject.com/ . His article on three tools for survival was right on! Brutally to the point! My kind of writing.
Stay alive and I'll see you later, God willing.
