Bailout Vote = Fail

Yesterday, The United States Congress voted on a Bill (Endorsed Heavily by George Bush – our news has been flooded with it for the last few days) that was supposed to help the current financial crisis in the United States and In turn that is affecting all of us.

The $700 Million U.S Dollar bailout proposal would have given the Treasury authority to buy unwanted assets, like non-paying mortgages from banks, credit unions and other firms, in the hopes of purging the financial system of bad debts and persuading banks to keep credit flowing. Why the vote failed was unclear, since Democrats and Republicans had seemed to have reached a compromise on Sunday. Republicans portrayed it as a bailout for Wall Street, unpopular because they considered financial firms largely at fault for the problem.

Steve Forbes, chairman and editor-in-chief, Forbes Magazine:
The panic in the market is being fed by the irresponsible behavior of Congress. If Congress had passed this bill today, no it was not a perfect piece of legislation, but we would have been able to go to the next steps– such as shoring up the dollar, maybe looking at cutting taxes, changing the short-selling rules and things like that. But without this package there, it’s near impossible to turn this thing around.

I’ve been a Finance Manager for the past 3 years and I’ve come across alot of people with bad debt, its just seems to be the unfortunate circumstances these days. Things cost alot and we don’t make enough to afford them…Hold on to your pennies folks! We’re looking at a bumpy road ahead ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Thanks for reading and Take Care!

The Closet Got Emptier

So its been all over the news that Clay Aiken has finally admitted he’s gay…(or rather, the right amount of time has passed since American Idol that he can come out with it without tarnishing the good American Idol name..*snerk*) Its no surprise that Clay is gay, (I mean Come on!) and Hey, good for him for finally admitting it. He came out on the cover of the latest issue of People holding his infant son, Parker Foster Aiken which He conceived by in-vitro fertilization with friend and producer Jaymes Foster.

The headline read: “Yes, I’m Gay.”

“It was the first decision I made as a father,” Aiken told the magazine, which arrives on newsstands Friday. “I cannot raise a child to lie or to hide things. I wasn’t raised that way, and I’m not going to raise a child to do that.”

Most People aren’t surprised, Simon Cowell reacted in his typical way, telling Extra:

“Wow. That’s a shock. It’s like being told Santa Claus isn’t real. Unbelievable.”

Cowell might not bat an eyelash, but Aiken’s hardcore fans โ€” known as Claymates โ€” are taking the news very seriously. As of Wednesday afternoon, there were reportedly more than 2,000 entries on the message board for Aiken’s official Web site. Most supportive but there is the occasional fan that see’s it another way:

“This is really shocking news as I had no idea he was gay, And now I have to deal with this. I am not sure what to say to people who know I was a fan. … I didn’t go to work today and am not answering the telephone.”

Oh Please, Even the most ignorant catholic priest could have seen that coming ๐Ÿ˜› ย *rolls eyes*

You want a real shocker?

Lindsay Lohan is a Lesbian! (Or Bi, no actual confirmation there?)

Lindsay – up all night – party hard with Paris Hilton and Britney Spears – Caused a bunch of celebrity fights over boys – once looked like a under weight coke whore – Lohan..ย 

(I dont mean to be harsh, I remember Lohan from way back in the Parent Trap, Thought she was even kinda good in Mean girls..I actually a tinsy bit like her ๐Ÿ˜› )

The 22-year-old actress casually told the co-host of Loveline on Monday that she’s been dating the 31 year-old DJ, Samantha Robson. The pair have appeared in public and been photographed together, but have never publicly commented about the extent of their relationship.

“You guys, you and Samantha, have been going out for how long now?” DJ Ted Stryker asked. “Like two years, one year, five months, two months?”

“For a very long time,” Lohan said after laughing.

*shrug* To each their own ๐Ÿ™‚ Whatever floats your boat as I always say, and Good for them for atleast admitting who they really are, more people could lead by example ๐Ÿ™‚
Peace ๐Ÿ˜‰ โค



Slacker Uprising

Micheal Moore, the filmmaker behind Fahrenheit 9/11,ย Bowling For Columbine, Sicko and More…Has Just released his Newest Film, Slacker Uprising. ย It will be available for three weeks as a free download to North American residents, beginning Today (September 23rd) Eventually, it will hit DVD. The article I read said that the movie cost 2 million to produce (1 million of which came directly out of Mooreโ€™s pocket).

โ€œSlacker Uprisingโ€ Synopsis

The film follows Mooreโ€™s 62-city tour during the 2004 election to rally young voters.
Moore is quoted as saying โ€œI thought itโ€™d be a nice way to celebrate my 20th year of doing thisโ€ he went on to say โ€And also help get out the vote for November. Iโ€™ve been thinking about what I want to do to help with the election this year.โ€

His last election year movie was the Bush-critical Fahrenheit 9/11. Moore is hoping that this movie will help encourage young American voters to go to the polls this Novemberโ€ฆ.a number that rose 11% during the last election. Itโ€™s also worth noting that He and the producer of the film have no interest in recouping the money for this film.

America needs More Micheal Moore’s ๐Ÿ˜›

Sarah Palin Action Figures…

Sarah Palin action figures are now out in toy stores and online, joining dolls in the likeness of other political Figures like Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, John McCain and John Edwards and More..

For your veiwing Pleasure *snerk*

The schoolgirl version sells for $29.95; the buttoned-up action figure dressed in a business suit is listed at $27.95, and the gun-toting super hero action figure is on sale for $29.95.
HeroBuilders.com sells these Sarah Palin dolls if your intrested, if your not, keep reading ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜›

Disclaimer: Rant ahead…

I can’t believe this…Sarah Palin is such a peice of hype! She hasnt done anything notable enough to be a Action Figure, hasnt done anything amazing….(This is Lame)….*grumble* This is exactly what I was talking about in my Sarah Palin Rant Post (click the Link if your Intrested) I can’t believe people actually would buy this…that someone took the time to make one! I get the feeling that someone’s a little to sure that she’s gonna be around awhile…this is sad…were gonna have to listen to all this “futurement of society” “change in the government” “finally a african american president” “things will get better” propaganda, and then guess what, Nothing will change. McCain is going to be the Next American President…were all gonna be so screwed!

McCain will be a war monger like Bush with actual military experience to boot! He’s actually been in War zones and been hurt by them, thus has alot more to go after! I feel like he could have a personal vendetta….Nevermind with a quarter of American oil production now flooded due to Hurricane Ike, The situation in Iraq and the cost of gas already on the rise, gas and every single thing we buy will be more expensive ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Minimum wage won’t go up, tax break’s won’t change. I remember 5 years ago paying $1 canadian for a loaf of wonderbread (which if you live in North America you know is nummy bread) and now just today, I paid $3….The Banks wonder why so many people are in debt, why were in a reccession?

And yet money’s being wasted on a war we can’t win and Action Figures that are Pathetic..

/End Rant

Thanks for listening lol, Comment Below Please, they make me giddy ๐Ÿ˜‰

Hurricane Ike
September 13, 2008, 9:18 pm
Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , , ,

Excerpt from Yahoo U.S News – By Chris Baltimore and Anna Driver
HOUSTON (Reuters) – Hurricane Ike slammed into the most populated part of the Texas coast on Saturday with ferocious winds and a wall of water that flooded seaside towns, paralyzed the oil hub of Houston and cut power to millions.
Although Ike is believed to have inflicted billions of dollars in damage, relieved officials and residents said the monster storm the size of Texas appears to have been less destructive than originally feared.
The hurricane, which idled about a quarter of U.S. crude oil production and refining capacity, swamped the island city of Galveston and then hammered Houston, the country’s fourth-largest city, shattering the windows of skyscrapers and showering streets with debris.

Unfortunatly all this has resulted in is an overnight Gas Hike….(RIP the poor souls that died)

Another reason for gas to go up isnt good for anyone, even those like myself that don’t drive ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Not to sound like another enviromentalist but Honestly folks, Car pooling, Buses, Trains, Take Advantage of them..it’ll save you money.
