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 😦

Thanks for reading and Take Care!

Slacker Uprising

Micheal Moore, the filmmaker behind Fahrenheit 9/11, Bowling For Columbine, Sicko and More…Has Just released his Newest Film, Slacker Uprising.  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 Moore’s pocket).

“Slacker Uprising” Synopsis

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

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 November….a number that rose 11% during the last election. It’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 😛

A Sarah Palin Rant..

I was avoiding this…For awhile I was following the American Election…I am Canadian but I know how much American Politics affect Canada (nvm the rest of the world) but I really didn’t want to pay attention after I was annoyed by it….I had hoped for HIlary Clinton (and yet most definatly I am still ok w/Barack Obama as he’s not a George Bush Clone) to remain on the ticket but alas its not her time (She has quite a few good idea’s that would make things better for everyone)…I figured it was because America wasn’t ready for a women..maybe a African American Man but not a Women but then John McCain pulled a wildcard…Sarah Palin…Who so happens to be a very intense women. She’s a strong political crusading christian, anti-abortionist (even in cases of rape and insest) and a Oil drilling in Alaska supporter..I could go on…either way..John McCain sure picked a good strategy, get the Hilary supporters! *rolls eyes*

This first Video is her saying that the war in Iraq is God’s Plan….

Matt Damon’s Opinion (Cant believe I’m using his opinion but he’s got a very good point…No one wants President Palin…)

Best for Last, BamBamKaboosh#3 – Sarah Palin Song! (I Picked a Girl!)

The saddest part of all, all this hype and attention that is being generated is what’s getting Sarah Palin’s name out there…its what might help McCain win most of all…

(^%$ &$ # @^&*#!) *ahem*

If any American’s are reading this…Please, for love of whatever you hold dearest, don’t vote for McCain!

Vote Obama! Please! 😉

Peace 🙂 (At atleast lets hope it stays that way)

(Anyone think the CIA or someone might come after me for this? lol 😉 )
