How our elected officials benefit from their positions

Ok, I know that everyone who is in a position of power somewhere on Earth is going to receive perks that we little people don’t.  But as I was reading this article, I was just disgusted! To think how much the Average Joe, (read to mean me) had to scrounge up to save for the down payment of a home and the closing too and then to know that these Richie Riches are getting these type of discounts! Uuuuuugh! Makes me want to throw up!!

Then the banks are “in trouble” and we have to bail them out! I say WE because it’s actually our tax money that funded this bailout and it will be our tax money and our children’s and their children’s tax money before it’s all paid up!! Unf*cking believable!! (Sorry guys just can’t bring myself to write out the word.)

Funny thing is that there have been talks about another stimulus check being doled out! Enough already!! If they would’ve taken that bailout money and given it to the American people that would have been over 100k per adult! The economy would surely have been humming like a fine tuned machine.

Big Profits for Oil Companies

How does it go again? The American Middle Class straps their belts to buy the necessities in life, while the big moguls rake in the profits. Oh yeah, that’s exactly how it goes! Here’s an example: Exxon Mobile made record profits this quarter. As a matter of fact they broke their own profit records! Well, how do they accomplish that? Easy by sticking it to us at the pumps, that’s how.

Americans have always been gas guzzlers, due mostly in part to having the ease of owning a car, usually at least 2 per household. So we have become gas hungry and the oil companies know this and they use it to their advantage to make profits. RECORD PROFITS!

Now that people are being more spend thrift and finding ways to save, especially by not going out as much, gas is getting cheaper. Why? All because of low demand.

That’s right everyone! Gas is the same as every other product; it fluctuates based on supply and demand. There have been people saying this for years, but no one was listening because we were all just into our own consumerism.

These big companies are sticking it to us and our government allows them to. Yes, it’s true! You don’t think that the Bush/Cheney clan hasn’t made record profits in their portfolio due to oil prices? Of course, they have! For that reason, there was nothing done when the prices on gas and crude oil started to sky rocket, because they saw it as a fattening of their wallets! So let’s tip our hats to our government for sticking it to us whenever times are rough. Bravo!

Take a look at the article on Exxon Mobile here.

Stop picking on Pushing Daisies!

I just read and article on Yahoo TV that one of my favorite shows is in jeopardy!! AAAAAAHHHH!!

How could this breath of fresh air, be discarded this way? This show has such imaginative sets, scripts and writing! It is so new and different from all the same reality crap out there. It is like when you first eat a cookie you didn’t know you would like and the first sensations of the taste assault you and you feel you must have more of this wonderful taste and smell! That’s exactly how I describe it. Just imagine it, pick something you like very much to eat, smell or drink and remember the first time you ever experienced it. That same feeling is what you get by watching this heart-warming, creative and funny show.

Imagine that you could have the person you love so close, but couldn’t touch them or your favorite childhood pet is still there with you but you can’t touch him. You can solve murders easily by just asking the victims what happened, no cold cases. And you can bake the best pies, even if the fruits are rotten! Incredible I tell you! Just watch it yourself once and you’ll be hooked.

Seriously, I should do the marketing for ABC, don’t you think?

Here’s the story from yahoo: http://www.tv.yahoo.com/falltv/photos/shows-in-trouble/370

I want to express…..

I am always told that I am loud when it comes to my views and opinions, therefore the creation of this blog!

This blog is for me to express my impressions of the world, life and everyday matters and see if I am the only one who sees things the way I do or if there are “others” out there. I appreciate everyone’s input. Thanks for visiting and pass it on!
