Until the Address to Congress…

Accountability and Transparency”We cannot overstate the importance of this effort. We are asking the American people to trust their government with an unprecedented level of funding to address the economic emergency. In return, we must prove to them that their dollars are being invested in initiatives and strategies that make a difference in their communities and across the country. Following through on our commitments for accountability and openness will create a foundation upon which we can build as we continue to tackle the economic crisis and the many other challenges facing our nation.”

Memorandum to Head of Departments and Agencies, February 9, 2009

 

The President has made it clear that every taxpayer dollar spent on our economic recovery must be subject to unprecedented levels of transparency and accountability.  He has identified five crucial objectives for Federal agencies, to ensure that:

  • Recovery funds are awarded and distributed in a prompt, fair, and reasonable manner;
  • The recipients and uses of all recovery funds are transparent to the public, and that the public benefits of these funds are reported clearly, accurately, and in a timely manner;
  • Recovery funds are used for authorized purposes and every step is taken to prevent instances of fraud, waste, error, and abuse;
  • Projects funded under the recovery legislation avoid unnecessary delays and cost overruns; and,
  • Programs meet specific goals and targets, and contribute to improved performance on broad economic indicators.

To meet these objectives, the President is directing Federal agencies to take critical steps in preparation for the Act’s implementation.  See here, for the White House’s February 9, 2009 initial implementation memorandum and February 18 detailed guidance memorandum.

Blue Posters and Trolls ….take note….

If you look at the written test you can see what a mess McCain’s talk was….nightmare,..what if that was the Address To Congress Speech that was presented last night.

If you could get a written text of that media spot….what a convoluted mess that was…truly Repub sicko…non-speech…and why did John McCain have Sarah Palin sitting behind him in the Address to Congress and some of the Congressional Members have to stand in the Aisle during the speech…is this not ….’AN ADDRESS TO CONGRESS’?  and honored guest sit in the balcony?

Add it to Sarah Palin’s Tab to Alaska…for expenditures she owes her state for family travel….

Bank:…de facto owner of huge lists of property

TRUTH FIGHTERS …UNITE…GRASSROOTS…CALL TO ACTION

DO WHAT WE DID TO GET THE ELECTION:

WE ‘CREATED’ VENUES TO GET TOGETHER TO TALK AND RALLY

WE NEED TO DO IT AGAIN.

POT LUCKS, LUNCHEONS, COFFEE SHOP MEET AND GREETS

I AM IN A ‘WOMEN’S DEM’ GROUP AND WE GO TO LUNCH

ONCE A MONTH AND DO COMMUNITY ACTIVITIES.

THEY ARE SPONSORING A …TEA…AT THE HISTORY MUSEUM

WITH A PUBLIC FORUM OF THE HISTORY OF THE GROUP….

YOU BET THEY WILL BE TALKING TO THE PUBLIC….

GET OUT THERE AND CREATE SOMETHING…JUST LIKE LAST YEAR..

BESIDES IT IS FUN….V.

 

Call the CONGRESSIONAL JANITORS…!!!!!!!! 

TO CLEAN UP THE …..

PUKE BEING VOMITED OUT ON THE FLOOR OF THE HOUSE RIGHT NOW….

ONE OF THEM JUST JUMPED UP AND SAID….

YOU ARE GOING TO TAKE MY MOTHERS RETIREMENT AWAY….

MILLIONS LOST THEIR RETIREMENT….

BECAUSE OF YOUR GOP GREED AND EXCESS…..

IF THIS CAMPAIGN HAD NOT PREVAILED….

THE ‘SAME OLE, SAME OLE’ WOULD HAVE BEEN IN PLAY

AND THE FAT CATS WOULD GO TO LUNCH

WHAT IS IN THE WATER YOU ARE DRINKING?…..V.

Dear Right ‘Wing Nuts’ …I heard you….

President Obama is responsible for:

Your financial losses during the last 8 years,

The de-regulation that caused the terrible financial mess.

The loss of money in your overpriced home.

You want President Obama to cut all monies to everyone and everything,

To insulate you again in your ivory tower and restore the ‘US and THEM’ STATUS QUO,

and pay you back….everything the GWB …8-Gate…took from you…

I get it….for now you are out on a melting ice flow all by yourselves…V.

Rules of Play…that have been lacking are being recreated to save our nation….

you like minded ‘wing nuts’ like what is vomiting up inanities on FOX right now. 

One woman just called into CSPAN and said that it was a ‘Black/White’ issue,…

The ‘WHITE SHEETS’ they have thrown over their heads will not let anything penitrate,

especially the TRUTH.

One of them even said what is needed is exactly what President Obama just said. 

That means he did not even listen to the speech…take the cotton out of your ears and put it in your mouth…V.

My personal favorite song….’I Will Remember You’ ….in all the familiar places….beautiful song extremely well done….Queen Lativa….and her performance…..

Thank you it was wonderful ….my favorite for the evening….V.

I have already received some interesting feed back…I do not want to rewrite and post their material on my blog…it is their intellectual property…and that is not why I did it…I have enough original material thank you.

I did it to get people thinking about what the reasons are that caused this.  The root cause…when we highlight them that will get us moving forward….other than the obvious greed and mean spiritedness of the last 8 years of buffoonery…like it would not hurt everyone.

Do not name people or businesses you do not own without permission…but in loose terms like…

This happened way over here in WA….

The peanut factory debacle in Georgia, affected a local cookie maker that has worked up from a small endeavor to having a industrial prep kitchen with product in all the local major outlets and elsewhere,  I do not know the scope of their market….had to recall product….and call to question a wonderfully safe, delicious, professionally presented and packaged items.

At risk it the short term and the long term product name that was worked so hard and long for years….sad….deregulation and long term abuses at the Peanut factory in Georgia, caused hardworking, conscientious person that found a niche of her own…problems not of her making. 

This stuff affects us all…..V.

George Washington Crossed the Deleware….President Obama crossed the floor of The Oval Office and sat down at the desk ….I ask you….which took more courage?

Happy George Washington’s Birthday,…..and Prayers for the ‘Man’….President Barack Obama.

Can’t you just see the dance floor….Ann Coulter, Sean Hannity, Rust Limbaugh, Joe Scarbrough, and I personally want to include our very own….Andrea Mitchell….in the middle of the dance floor ….getting a groove on…..in baggies and gold chains….vaudeville come to mind?….V.

Coast to Coast and guest talking about the bubble….nothing of significance….I need to do my Blog Talk Radio…Wow I really write a lot of stuff and all of it original…I just looked at my blog yesterday…yikes…It is going to be a challenge to think like that while talking and not typing….

i need for my buds to get together a time and we will have a closed session of just us and rap some on this stuff…like the real stuff…on the www.recovery.gov page…like have it open on the lap top and rap about it….

The Repubs and Purple Prosecuter have me shook up….talking about Rapping….it is Hula Hoops for the Repubs….not Hip Hop….senile?…..V.

Hula Hoop was the last social group effort for the Repubs….I am not young and they looked down on me…however, I did spent 20 years on the beach…righ on the beach on the North Shore of Oahu…that kept me young at heart and fit…V.

I was about to declare myself the last intelligent life standing on the blog and shut down and turn on Coast to Coast…then a bud showed up here…it must be insane o’clock on the east coast…no that is wake up time for Stephanie Miller…the talk show on air america…see it is late..not bothering to capitalize.

Cool,..I like to see them…they are in HI on the North Shore…wind off the ocean…the State of Hawaii would not admit that wind power was effective so they could ‘stick it to us’ real good for buying and shipping in fuel for electricity…at the begining for a long time they were not hooked up to the power grid…

END OF STORY……V.

I agree…no need for credit report for job searches.  A background check for financial handling or check for previous theft charges maybe warranted for some jobs.

I feel that the process is abused another way.  With the unemployment check you have to process so many applications per week to get the check.

I have seen businesses especially those online, ALWAYS hiring…ie taking applications.  They are sending the CURRENT info, name, address, phone, and references to the CREDIT agencies. 

I have often wondered if they get a fee.  They must mass hundreds per month.

Career Builder is notorious for ‘serial’ job searches…V.

Dear Mr. President,

      You have the Captain’s deck on the Ship of State.  You have the confidence of the crew, the wind is picking up and the sails are filling…..we have had a storm or two, but you are the leader we trust to guide the ship and give the orders.

      Put her bow to the wind and we will sail into open waters for the next 8 years.  This crew member will be almost 68 when that time comes and working on staying fit to do my part.  Aye, Aye Captain, you got the wheel….V. 

Barack,….we have your back on this one….It was gracious for the Master of Buffoonery to wait for 30 days before he took to the stage…..I did not want Hillary in the primaries for a lot of legitimate reasons….Barack chose her for his Sec of State….that is his business…..we chose Barack….and

BARACK OBAMA IS THE 44TH PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES

…..not the clintons…hil and bil….or the clintonistas…

or that ‘bobblehead’ ANDREA MITCHELL on MSNBC, what a sicky sweet mess she served up on hil on her trip…tribute is one thing…but I was in danger of getting ‘diabetes’ watching it.

Most Presidents spent their first month in The White House with a MAP of the place.

 We worked for, campaigned for, donated to, elected, sweated out the LAME DUCK time, praying for an end to the ‘8-Gate’….8 years of the ‘unknown president’….hoping he would not completely destroy America before Jan 20, 2009….AND

bil and hil…..we didn’t do it to watch you ‘arm chair quarterback’ the PRESIDENCY….

If we wanted BILL CLINTON back in The White House….hil would have won….

VOTE WITH THE REMOTE…every time you see his MUG on the screen….or hear his voice on the radio….we had enough of you the first time around….you ain’t it….V.

Corruption…they all knew it was going on and turned a blind eye…

these FAT CATS all were ‘guest hosts’ on the financial channel up to days before their arrests…an Abramoff and all of them…Enron was touted day and night…it is like…

did not Christine Gregoire not know until just after the election that WA was in deficit.

 Now 8.3 Billion…in the debate just before the election she told the opponent…WA is sound…nothing wrong here…and everyone bought it…because no one thought anyone would say it if they did not know it was true…

Question: Did she know it then or not? and when did she find out?  Is there responsibility and accountability for that?..

That is a media spot I would like to see…COULD …CHRISTINE GREGOIRE …APPEAR ON LARRY KING AND TELL US…..V.

We have to rally this grassroots movement fast.  We have to get up and running and get people involved again in the HOPE, CHANGE, and YES WE CAN…..

I do not want to see the days back again….Seattle was the Youth Suicide Capital of the World.

I raised two teen girls during that time in this area ….they lost some friends…

A story came out last weekend in this little town:

A youth, VERBALLY threatened his parents, there was some physical contact, the police came and took him for mental evaluation at the hospital and then he went to jail for face charges for …homicide.

His life is forever changed.

Teens get …HEATED UP…sometimes.  I used to say…teens are that way so you won’t miss them when they grow up and move out….it was just a joke…I missed my teens horribly…still do.  I cried for weeks like it was a lost lover when my kids left home…but that is another story.

Teen get…HEATED UP…sometimes…is a right of passage to maturity…that is going to be acerbated and exaggerated in turbulent financial times….we have to help and get involved now.

We I was growing up in the 60’s in West Texas, {You could see Midland Texas from the backyard} the two teen brothers next door would hook horns and go at it….the parents would run out the front door and say…oh lordy me…they are at it again….everyone lived…and made good people.

My brothers would get into it…one time they got each other be the neck and went round and round and bounced off one wall and then another….if my dad was not at home and got between them…I don’t think they would have stopped.

The teen boys across the pasture….you could hear them get into it all the way to our house…

And girls too, …me and mom….and everyone you knew….would have ‘times’ with parents.

Now it is a crime…it starts with denied opportunities, no hope, lost direction, helplessness…suppressed or misdirected abilities and drive….we have to start now to change that.

The drugs and alcohol, the crime, the ruined lives is too high a price to pay for not getting out and reaching out.

If you have having troubled times….take care to be good to each other and the kids….V.

 

 

Why?….Why?…..is the level of credence not broken here?

No one has ask her…..When did you first realize there was a problem?

No one has ask her….When did you get that tan?….it is definitely a Hawaiian tropical tan.

You can not get a tan like that from a Tan Salon.

No one has ask her…..How much time have you spent in WA lately.

The media spot could have been filmed anywhere.

We are in trouble in WA and this is what we get and not one person is asking any questions.

Do you know WHY?….I THINK I DO….

IT HASN’T AFFECTED THEM YET…..

AS LONG AS THE KEY FITS IN THE DOOR AND THE LITTLE WOMAN IS HOME….

AND THE GUESTS COME AND THE WINE IS POURED.

The credit line is good for the business and the money will come in…won’t it?

mmmmm……V.

 

 

I was the first and only …Verna.,..on the Blog…when I added …v.o.b. to my name…I lost the blog nickname…Verna…I did not know it would change my name….

SOMEONE ELSE…has taken the name…VERNA…and has no blog entries…no donations or events…I am just waxed over that…but it gets worse…

There is another Verna …that totes the moniker….as a volvo wine drinking, code red …I don’t know what all….sick and digusted….V.

Seattle is not a representative market. It is the center of the Tech Bubble, the Dot Com Bubble and Boeing ups and downs, Starbucks, Amazon, plus all of the Wine Drinking Chowder Heads that do things because …the other Wine Drinking Chowder Heads are doing it…ie buying a particular stock,…buying in a neighborhood at horrible inflated prices for dwellings I would not let animals sleep in…dilapidated tear downs with bad plumbing and electrical…painted up and sold as the newest …chic?

The Chinese found out this mind set and sold them all the market could stand…V.

BACKGROUND:  Since moving to the Northwest, I have rented…..I am a realtor, I have always been a realtor.  I had be the owner of a paid for home, my home, married to a swindler for more than 7 years in HI and the courts sold my home to pay his ‘charge cards’ and ‘business debt’….he hid his huge income, had multiple prestige homes of his own in HI and California and NV.  Declared himself a pauper and the court paid his golf trips and restaurant tabs,…shopping for Louis Vuitton…all during the years of the divorce that would not finalize….over 5 years…he had an open tab…and so did all of the lawyers in the case.

That said,….I moved to the NW with my two girls.  Rented since 1993,…$153.600…if I paid $800 per month.   I put my license up went to work,…ask my family to cosign on a little house in their neighborhood…$110,000….they said…’Oh we have been landlords before and don’t want to do that again,….dumb.  That house is on the market for $249,000. 

THE POINT:  Me and my girls would have had a more stable family existence in a good neighborhood….it could have been sold at anytime for more than the purchase price,….

Rent….$153,600 since 1993               Buy ….$110,000

Cost of housing  $153,000                  House value $249,000

Lost $153,600                                   Profit $139,000 …Cost of housing …$0 for 16 years.

The end price amount had nothing to do with the loan approval or the value of the house. It was a glorified rental agreement.  If buyer could qualify for a ‘monthly’ payment they could purchase with 0 down and 3 months expenses in credit line. 

The end value would be absorbed when the house ‘turned’ – sold in 3 to 5 years as the GNP increased and income rose to afford higher ‘monthly payments’…it was a ‘Ponzi’ Scheme,…a house of cards. 

Appraisers did not even bother to go to the site.  Hired hourly workers to go to the site, photograph, yes it is there and is standing.

It was all about ….Just turning Paper…for appraisers,…banks…mortgage brokers…who just turned paper…and the entire nation is suffering whether they are in foreclosure or not.

The perpetrators of the ‘ponzi’ should be arrested and records seized…we do not have enough courts or jails to hold them…they will live to put their sticky fingers in the next ‘business action’…V.

Good Morning Media…..here is your imput for tomorrow….

GET ON BOARD WITH THE ….CHANGE TRAIN….OR GET LEFT AT THE STATION….

Bookmark…home tab.. www.recovery.com… it is your window on the money…thanks to President Obama….here is just a paste and copy of a chart…go there and read the page.

Just think about what he faced taking this job….and what he has done in just 30 days…WOW.

We need to get an online rally and get our folks back on this site…We need to have the house meetings and neighborhood people posting and involved. 

We need groups to get together and review the recovery plan and see how they can spread the word in local agendas…like we did campaigning….we have to win the hearts and minds of the society we live in like in the days of the primary fight…but this is even a stronger cause than getting our guy to win…we have to help him win this fight….got your gloves on?…V.

President Obama ask us to help him in his endeavor to keep his agenda.  We need to read the   www.recovery.gov  and the www.whitehouse.gov sites and be vocal on his POSITIVE agenda for the recovery. 

We can spout all our own stuff…or be part of the solution.  I am personally sick of negative talk…I can hardly watch ANY news…I am sick of radio…I love radio…and am not turned in.

I do like www.edshults.com radio program.  Always on the positive supportive side of the new administration.

I like the edgy www.stepaniemiller.com radio program early in the morning.  It gives me a lighthearted jolt 6 am to 9 am while I wait for my coffee, vitamins, and blood pressure pills to bring my bod up to operating mode for the day.

We owe it to our hard fought cause to be UP on the information our highly intelligent, wise, President has put forth.

Let’s show him we TRULY care about him….and the recovery….V.

It is not a Mortgage…Just a glorified Rental Agreement…How We Got Here in the Mortgage Mess….FOR REAL…..

THIS IS MY ORIGINAL MATERIAL….

I AM THE FIRST TO WRITE ABOUT THIS EARLIER…YEARS EARLIER.

The Mortgages were upside down to begin with…the houses would never appraise for the values put on them….they were never intended to be paid off…just glorified rental agreements….

If your income would cover the ‘monthly payment’…

Forget about whether it was principal or interest only for years….just the amount of the PAYMENT….was in line with your household income…to the hilt.

The appraisers, never went to the property,….they sent cheap hired help…usually young women with a camera,…some notes…yes the property is on that site…it is standing…the address is on the house…it is the right one.

The ‘appraiser’ builds a file…puts in the photo…never sees the house or neighborhood.   The ‘loan’ people do much the same with their file…the loan was made….the owner…has possession…as long as he can make muster on the monthly payment…he and family live there…pay the taxes on it, repair, insurance, up keep,….and improve the property.   

It is an understanding in the business,…people sell every 3 to 5 years.   Therefore, you ‘turn the deal’…someone else covers your original outlay, can make the payment,….like a ponzi scheme…no real owner except the mortgage owner who leverages the max out of the loan.

The corruption of the mortgage industry should be  scrapped….unless they have already done themselves in….but the bailout should not go to them…they should go to jail….V.

 

Right ‘WingNuts’…beware…I got a sign from….GAWD!!!…To stay on your case…..or anything else!

I was cleaning a boat….that gives me time to think as I do it…I was feeling remorseful for the edgy blog posts of late….Am I becoming one of THEM?

That is when it happened…you can’t make this stuff up….I had a hand vacuum…breezing along in a cabin shelf….and saying to myself…I really ought to soften up my approach on the blog…I don’t want to seem harsh…hard and…..A WING NUT FELL OUT ON TO THE LAMINATE SHELF IN FRONT OF ME…..

I have not gone to a Repub site in months, even in curiosity….I can smell it from here.

They are so off base with lies and distortions…read a little of this web site now that you are here and the front page as well…and …www.recovery.gov…to see where the money is going..

Recovery At Work:

Thank you President Obama….the weak and vulnerable first.   They need care in these difficult times and the ones that care for them.  I am sorry that I listen to the local radio being so negative about the recovery for Whatcom County…they must have just gone through it looking for a check for themselves…..some of the Dems in this area in government are as bad or worse than the Repubs….

The general attitude in the town is upbeat, stores full and traffic flowing a little heavier than moderate after 8 pm around the shopping center….Just the good feelings of having someone like you up at the top…congratulations…we will all hang in until then…money is moving…just from better attitudes.

The ‘bunker mentality’ is what happened to the mainstream economy.  Yes a lot of people are really having a terrible time….God Bless them…but it is like..after, weeks after, 9/11, there was no reason for the economy to ‘dump’ so badly way out here to WA…other than the fact of fear and ‘going to bunker’.  

We have to CHANGE that mentality.  Yes, morn, Yes feel badly for others fate, Yes, be wary, but we have to square our shoulders and go forward.   We are not little chicks running for cover, we are Americans,,,YES WE CAN. 

We can’t pull the tent down over our heads every time a storm cloud blows over….Best Wishes…V. 

 

The huge lumber yard out in the industrial section…closing.

The lovely remodeled coffee shop on the comute junction into town…closed.

Empty businesses,….for sale signs,….

Late model cars and trucks parked…For Sale signs.

College students holding signs for local tax preparers….have to not only hold the sign but….‘DANCE A JIG FOR HOURS’….to attract attention and keep their job….terrible business practice to treat young people that way….I am going to call the businesses and write the paper.

However,….the roads were full of people, the stores were full, the new Sonic Drive Inn….has  a waiting line of cars just to enter the space….and ….CROWD CONTROL.

All week, lines at registers in stores,…full parking lots,….all the pastry shops full.

People are starting to move….that is a wonderful sign…the streets are busy again.

WA will get One Half Billion, that is to the state for infrastructure…that translates to contracts for FAT CATS…illegal workers and they take their lunch….the eateries will not even see a stimulus….CORRUPTION…at every level is the problem…

everything else for WA ‘IS’ tax cuts…but if you do not have 2500 to spend on tuition, $15,000 for sales tax on a home purchase, you will not get the $50 credit off your taxes…DUH? Dude? what rock did you crawl out from under?…there is no money to help the LITTLE GUYS in WA with no factories for influx of funds for Bucks….we have a crisis in WA and all across the land…you sound like a Repub they put $100 Billion Ransom funding in the bill, for their pet contractors, NASA, MED RESEARCH etc, that will get funneled out the back door…and did not vote for the package, ….and will blame President Obama and the Dems next time around…go figure.

Board of Realtors,…what have you done to promote using a Realtor….the copyrighted word you own to promote good business relations between Realtors, the good policy of using a Realtor to the public for good business ethics?

I recieved a bill from the Local Board of Realtors, they do not have my on their list as being a member…for last year…and this year’s billing….just short of $1,000.  I have one of the few jobs that you ‘pay first’…dues, billing, MLS, fuel, desk fees, costs, ….and hope to make a sale in a down market….that is one thing….

But locally,…the Board of Realtors got fined just short of $500,000 for giving the PAC optional payments to….THE REPUBLICANS…instead of dividing equally among the parties….

I have not seen any promotion of using a Realtor advertising,…

where are their voices in the housing debacle….

where are they except….holding the members to their contract to extract money…when they have violated their side of the contract and our money is used to pay for their fines?

 

How much for that contract?…..$$$$$$$?…..Just for the Census ‘Pencils’….Bush dollars at work – Made in China.

Someone told me one time…I don’t want to own McDonald’s  I just want to furnish them the little ketchup packages for all their stores….

Just the Pencils….falls under that category…..The Census…pencils…are printed with the words…2010 Census…and one box in every so many has to be thrown out….NO LEAD IN THE PENCIL…..seems like terms to describe….. GWB.

AND….who the heck needs pens and pencils, for every town, city and hamlet in the USA, inscribed with the words….2010 Census….couldn’t the forms just be sent out to be filled out….we are not furnished pens and pencils to fill out any other Gov..Form…think about it…..

STOP THE WASTE……CODE WORDS FOR….A VOTE FOR YOU {whomever conceived and agreed to} …is a VOTE for WASTE……V.

We are the Truth Squad for the Right ‘Wing Nuts’….they can fool everyone else but not us….

Did Nancy Pelosi really say….she could not get a vote in the House because…

the whole bill was not published for the members…

WHAT ABOUT ON LINE…if House Members can’t use the computer…they have aids that can scroll down the pages and read it for them..

And…the Repubs…did not read it at all…just did not bother..

.because they were going to vote NO..anyway…..

Now I ask you …is this representation…or do these folks really have to GO…..V.

Let’s start off with the Rash Limberger Shoe this morning…..also listed under Right ‘Wing Nut’ Watch:

the repubs put a bunch of stuff in the bill and then Rash Limburger this morning

Bemoaned all the stuff in the bill…it was the stuff…the repubs put in and he had me going…

until I realized what was going on…this is warfare…

Sorry, did not take in any other media today…Saved my head on the insanity I knew was coming up…….V.

Good Morning Media….I know you are tapping in just now for the stuff for tomorrow….I was just thanking President Obama for the Stimulus Bill and I have the following to report….

Mr Obama,,,if you could have seen the Shopping Center tonight in this small town….well be have 157,000 or so in the county….probably 90,000 in town…..the business and the general attitude has been so bad for months….BUT TODAY….WOW…

For starter this afternoon at the office: the phone rang, another person came in to see about a property and looked at plat maps,….a contract came in on the fax machine…then I locked up and drove home

I went to the shopping center,  the streets were crowded…the stores were full….lines at the register…people actually buying things…I went home…I can see the center from my house and the street in front…the traffic went on for 2 hours…crowded traffic….

Usually the traffic is all off the street by 5:15…and is slow and you could feel the sadness…

not tonight…it was like Christmas…..

The following is a paste of a comment I made a few pages back, I like to read a few pages back before I post….

because…they go after Phelps so they do not have to say good things about President Obama…AND…bad things about GWB…AND..they can get their self righteous dander up and ..SNARK ..SNARK…SNARK…I am sick of hearing it too…thank you for our post…I am going to post this comment I am a few pages back from the front just catching up on today….I have a great report…the town was out in force after 5 p m….until 7:30..traffic was very heavy in and out of the shopping center…stores were full…eateries…long lines of cars…the large shopping center looked like Christmas shopping tonight…I think everyone was just relieved and out spending a little dough…V.

If I knew where to go, what to do to improve my personal economy, I would go out the door and do it…..

Right now I am going to dress and go to my office and go to my desk, that costs me like a small business, look at an empty inbox with no files in it….hope the printer company does not call because I can not pick up my printing today….to mail out in hopes of getting business….and then there is the postage for it…..2,000 mailers.

in hopes that some one will respond…at some point real estate people will stop asking for your business…

the cost of advertising is paid by us until it sells…that is now going over a year…a lot of real estate people I know are ‘upside down’ on their listings….

they have more costs against the file than their part of the commission will pay…and our costs have not gone down…but up..V.

FAT CATS……get bail outs to save their necks, job, status,

‘Standard of Living’ for a CEO.

LITTLE GUYS….bailout for not starving, getting sick, look for employment…

 Repubs call it ‘welfare’.

FAT CATS……The little woman or girl friend goes to the Doctor for a ‘Procedure’…. 

DNC…Dialation and Curetment

LITTLE GUYS…..Go to terminate a pregnacy…sometimes it is a working mother….can’t afford another baby and/or time off….

‘Abortion’

When the W O R D S….apply equally to all, then there will be

EQUALITY.

‘nough said?……V.

If the banks are PAID bailout money to SAVE THEM for the bad loans…

will the borrowers still have credit report entries….

the maker of the loan is no longer damaged…

.and what collections will still be made against the borrowers for a loan that was paid out….

Will the Banks be paid …TWICE…for the bad loans?

Raw feed on CNBC…of the interaction of the committee with the CEO’s of 8 of the banks that received the TARP money.

Y E S ….

THEY HAVE AGREED TO PROVIDE THE COMMITTEE IN WRITING

WHAT THEY DID WITH THE TARP MONEY

Question:  Will we be able to see the results or an honest summary? 

This is the only question we needed to have ask of them….What did you do with the Money?

One line, …Why did it take so long to line them up and ask this question?

Give them one of their own credit applications to fill out.

I should have been done last fall…..mmmmm?……V.

Winds of more than 60 mph caused dust storms in western Texas that reduced visibility so much some roads have been closed, the National Weather Service said.

Cody Lindsey, a meteorologist in Midland, said the winds were expected to last through early evening.

AP Story 30 minutes ago

YES WE CAN…..let’s come up with ideas to help the situation now.  

We have a large THINK TANK in here.

I am sick of writing about the bad stuff….it is stinking bad..and is about to be worse….that’s the report….now what about the solutions.

I went to the Democratic Women’s monthly meeting yesterday.

They had their own….’Inaugural Ball’…donated the excess to the FOOD BANK, and two other outreach organizations.

The FOOD BANK line here in this small town is down the block.   If you do errands any day it is open you see everyone who is in line…..IT AIN’T HOMELESS…OLDSTERS…AND BUMS….it is everyone you can think of and the working poor.

We have to come up with a housing plan before we see the masses homeless.

The ‘Hidden Homeless’ ..sofa surfers,…roommates….living with friends and family….may not have any hope of changing the situation until things improve a ……w a y …d o w nj …t h e …l i n e….

So, What can we think up and do in the YES WE CAN SPIRIT?…..v.

What if the landlords got an income credit for 50% of the rental fees….to stave off the homeless situation….it could be in the form of a voucher by the tennant.

No not a big governmental hoorah, …of forms and files and months or years of waiting.

Emergency vouchers for homeowners that lost home, job, etc.

All you have to do is proof, show a foreclosure statement, job termination etc….for 1 year of 50% rental fees?

Something’s gotta give…..

I am not asking for me….I have my own problems….I am in an office on commissions and looking for my monies….from sales that are not happening…..fees due….costs due…staying in the business I pay to be in….only by time and grace…..my desk is litterally a small business…V.

Finacial National Disaster and FEMA

Could FEMA…be called out if we see major homeless and hungry conditions?

It woiuld be a chance for them to redeem themselves……V.

Things are getting real for a lot more people every 24 hours…..2 people, a big dog, and several cats….on a short list….they are homeowners until the 1st. 

Smiling trying to make the best of it, you could feel the fear in the room. 

What the greed in this country fails to understand is that the economy is ‘interdependent’…..

Just those 2 people will:

Not be able to rent, now bad housing credit, the animals will end up in a shelter, no more purchases for housing supplies, utilities, pet food.

Not be shopping the local stores, or going to the mall.

Spending in the local eateries, entertainment, buying re occurring cable, home insurance, yard care products, automotive supplies and fuel…car is already gone….

Multiply that by approx 50 household per month in a County of !57,000…..others scared to spend…..

So Greedy Monster….let me tell you a story about a Dog.

A Dog had a bone,

The Dog went to the water’s edge…

The Dog saw his reflection…

A Dog with a bone…

The Dog grabbed for the Bone in the reflection

The Dog lost his bone in the water.

Now the Dog and his reflection

HAVE NOTHING…..V.

This post is dedicated to all the people who had a home, a computer, and power on with Internet who have lost it or all of it and can not post tonight.

CONGRESS….WAKE THE HECK UP….PEOPLE ARE HURTING…THE SILENCE YOU HEAR MAYBE SHORT

I HAVE NOT HEARD ONE WORD OF APPOLOGY FROM THE REPUBLICANS….

THEY SHOULD BE SCRAPING THE FLOOR IN HUMILITY FOR WHAT THEY HAVE DONE.

ARROGANCE IS HARDLY THE WORD FOR IT…..

 

WE WILL REMEMBER THAT..

I wanted to make this more memorable and expressive…but words fail me to give out the true anguish they and their families are going through right now….I hear their silence.V.

Are all of the GOP PORK items….for GOP friendly contractors to get money from the bill….the PAY OFF for the passing of this bill?

Maybe we need the BLAGO FIX for them.

THE GOP PORK…..is NASA, MEDICAL RESEARCH, AND LIKE ITEMS ADDED THAT ARE NOT ….

JOB RICH AND ECONOMY STIMULATING…..

HOW CAN YOU TAKE OUT THINGS FOR KIDS, OLDSTER, THE ILL, THE POOR, AND FOOD STAMPS THAT STIMULATE THE GROCERY MARKETS?

Have you noticed that not all brands are on the shelf at the market?

Some products that you go for are not there at all?

I went to a national chain drug store last week….clearance items…never to be renewed…were some of the things I use regularly…..it is usually the most simple, inexpensive and the ones that work….you know the simple remedies your parents used…like generic zinc oxide….the bandaid for the skin…it is less than $2 and no longer availble…..V.

WASHINGTON STATE IS ACTIVELY…..surfing the CRAIGSLIST…for Handymen, and other like jobs….for business licenses…and handing out fines….thousands of dollars….depending on the ad.

In a time that people need money…an ad…HANDYMAN…will do carpentry, and clean clogged pipes…picked up a $2,000 fine…and others that were equally hit….daycare, cleaning ladies, everything ….but nose pickers…..V.

I get an email just now from the Repugs….Lindsey Graham ask….paraphrased…”we need to all get in a room and work it out…like in the old days”

LIKE A SMOKY BACKROOM….LINDSEY…OUT OF SIGHT…ON RETREAT….

THE AMERICAN PUBLIC PROVIDED ALL OF YOU A ROOM TO WORK IT OUT IN……

              IT …IS……CALLED……CONGRESS……

GET THERE AND ….WORK IT OUT…..HOWEVER THE PUBLIC WILL WATCH….IT IS CALLED

BEING RESPONSIBLE TO THOSE WHO PUT YOU THERE AND PAY THE BILLS.

‘nough said?….V.

Make this a list for your groups, email pals, Facebook and other formats.

What I did Today Personally,

1.  Turned down the furnace to 55.  It is not freezing in the daytime anymore. 

2.  At 3 pm in the office, I turned the office copier off.  No one was in except me, at the office meeting I am going to instill an AFTER 3 PM ENERGY REDUCTION in the office.

     A. Reduced heat

     B. Copier goes off, 

      C. Conference room lights go off, and back office

That is 10 hours a week of energy alone..from 3 pm until 5 pm….think if we did that nationally.

That would take so much energy off the power grid…Or closed non essential business offices on Friday,….Government, State, County, City……think of it…add other private office entities…

     D. Not have on the TV or radio unless I am actively consuming the programing.

Can’t wait to get up tomorrow.  May have some new Ideas…..Nationally these ideas would be a saving GRACE.

WE NEED TO DO WHAT THEY DID IN THE WWII DAYS….self rationing until this is over.

The economy would come back….slowly, but stronger….essential items would survive.

I know of someone who went to their business landlord for a temporary reduction in business rent.

Would have energy rationing 3 to 5 pm, 10 hours a week lower the long term expenditure for times like these….must ponder for long time liquidity.   

Even in FAT TIMES….it does not hurt to save.  Saving Energy we all win….V. 

 

 

From my desk in my office, as I write this, up on the hillside overlooking Bellingham Bay, is a row of sought after, expensive old barns, that have a view of the Bay and sunset.  Coveted and just short of $1,000,000, if they become available.

There is a line of laundry stretched out under the eave of one of them.  We do not have clothes lines in Bellingham…because…IT RAINS…IS IN A FOREST…HAS LOTS OF BIRDS…AND ANIMALS.

IT IS RAINING NOW….So I ask you, if they are saving money by putting the unmentionables out on a line above the Port and our office….how bad is it?

GOP PORK….NASA, MEDICAL RESEARCH..ETC….are this items for GOP friendly Government contractors …to take stimulus/taxpayer dollars….out the back door in wheel barrows?

DEM stimulus/care of at risk folks…any and all programs for …children, the ill, poor, aged, should be put in a block together and not touched….with a DEM Sergeant at arms guarding it….

HEAD START, SCHOOL MODERNIZATION, FOOD STAMPS, UNEMPLOYMENT, MEDICAID, ETC

We will stave off endangering at risk people in the communities….stave off suicide, crime, alcohol abuse, drug addiction, spouse abuse, youth at risk, empowerment of next generation……that is what you would be voting NO on….yes Repubs, this would affect you, in government cost and crime, unempowered people always cost the public.

So what if you think it is overdone now…we have to….the Titanic, the Ship of State that is unsinkable…has a hole in the side and is taking on water.

JUST SAY NO….TO REPUBLICAN PORK…They want to shovel more money to their friends….V.

Dear Corporate America,

        You have opportunity to be prudent with the monies you have received from the American Public.

        You have opportunity to govern your own executives.  

        You have opportunity to only use the money to create jobs, and pay retirement funds of the workers.

         You have opportunity to remove all the unnecessary spending from your budgets.

        American Public is not happy with you, and any sniff of negligence and glory spending when we are sacrificing may see a black list for your goods and services.  Things are tougher than is reported, and we are watching.  

        I thought I would pass on the word for what I am hearing down on Main Street. 

        This is the last time we are going to change your diapers.  

           It would be wise to think about Toilet Training.

 

        Signed, John and Jane Q. Public

She thinks she just ‘SLIPPED ONE IN ON’ Richard Wolffe and the viewers …

He was there open frank, knowledgeable…

and she …dismissed him, his dialog,…the President of the United States….with her little comments …reduced his FACE TO FACE with the American Public in the wave of Financial Tsunami…..

with …it was a campaign speech and….Obama back on the Campaign Trail…..then the …Sly ‘ole MR FOX grin….at the end….like I got that one over on all of them….THAT WAS ALL SHE HAD TO SAY ABOUT THAT AWESOME MOMENT….

GO TO FOX NETWORK….V.

WE JUST HEARD THE MOST WONDERFUL PRESIDENTIAL SPEECHES OF ALL TIME….NO NOT MEMORABLE BUZZ WORDS…BUT ON TIME, FACE TO FACE….IN THE FACE OF A FINANCIAL TSUNAMI.

MOST ELECTED OFFICIALS WILL NOT GO LIVE WITH CONSTITUENTS AT THIS TIME….MUCH LESS THE SPINELESS PRESIDENT WE JUST HAD IN ….8-GATE.

IS THAT THE ONLY THING THAT ….ANDREA MITCHELL…COULD FIND TO CRITISIZE?….IT WAS SIMILAR TO A CAMPAIGN SPEECH…..YOU WXXXE….YOU JUST CAME BACK ON WITH THE PHRASE….”…OBAMA BACK ON THE CAMPAIGN STUMP”….GET THAT BIGOTED HOG OFF THE AIR.

Some many talking points:

The Stimulus package is just one leg of the stool…House Package will be another one…

Bankruptcy laws:…If you are rich and have several other homes…the current Bankruptcy Laws..allow modification of the mortgages of the other houses to save them with a modified payment.  But if you own one house, President Obama said, “Like me, my home in Chicago, I am just a visitor in the People’s House in Washington…”…you can not modify the mortgage to save your home….

The young man who owns a Green Company…[paraphrased]…said he and by name several other Green Company owners in the crowd…are doing it out of passion…and need regulation for utility companies…and local governments…not to be so prohibitive to emerging Alternative energy companies…it was a breathtaking moment….we have a President that is in this Century….

He is wonderful, and what we are …today….V.

 

That is what I envisioned he would be like when he became the 44th President of the United States….I would watch him every speech on the campaign trail….thinking….that is what I want to see and hear.

It is hard to take in….yes all of the months and for him years.,..to get to this point….I enjoy hearing every word he says…..V.

 That’s it…That’s why Congress went to the SPA….to look good for the cameras 

 Pompous, Pedicured, Pampered, Poodles….so they could come out in front of the cameras after they passed the stimulus bill…

to tell the….LITTLE PEOPLE….what they had done for us….and look good doing it

Maybe get a air time on a talking heads show….does that turn your stomach or what?

If I were in Congress….I would stay up all night…be lean and mean….haggard….bags under my eyes….ragged rumpled clothes….

“We stayed in there for days, …had egg sandwiches and soup sent in….but we got ‘er done”

I would hoist myself up hold on to a chair back and say …..

“Now we are going back in there and stay until we get the ones that did this to our country”

That, my friend is ‘service’ to our country….

CONGRESS: 

Are each of you severally and collectively worthy of the price that fighting men and now women, have paid since the beginning of our country?

I think you need to open session in the morning, say a prayer and walk out to Arlington Cemetery, and the World War !!, and Vietnam Wall, and Tomb of the Unknown Soldier…

and get some ….H U M I L I T Y……also.

WHAT ABOUT THE WAR WIDOWS AND CHILDREN, …PARENTS OF SOLDIERS…..

ARE YOU WORTHY OF THEIR RESPECT….THEY STILL RESPECT YOU BECAUSE THEY ARE HONORABLE PEOPLE….AND RESPECT YOUR OFFICE….DO YOU?

HOW IN GODS NAME DID YOU LET ….ALL THIS HAPPEN?…..SOME OF YOU KNEW

IT IS TIME TO TAKE NAMES AND ….WHOOP AXX…..V.

 

What the HECK…are you waiting for….I missed the meetings today…busy…so I had my own meeting….

If Congress doesn’t get it ‘UP’ in the Morning….no need to go any further….

Just open the closed plants and stores….Army Cots and MRE’s for jobless, homeless

FAT CATS…take notice…this is not the usual …tune out the poor folks deal here.

These are responsible hardworking people that are not just going to walk down the road like in the Dust Bowl days of Grapes of Wrath.

If you Pompous, Pedicured, Pampered, Poodles, don’t get a ‘Woodie’ in the morning and get this done….don’t need to…it is over….it may be too late already.

EMERGENCY CARE NEEDED:

All those that lost jobs in last 18 months….should have 18 months to file taxes and pay.

Probably most lost homes too….and that gets real expensive,

Housing, Food, Transportation, Kids to School …’per Diem’

FROG WITH NO LEGS …DON’T JUMP.

If you are counting heads and think you will get re elected by those still mobile..think again.

How many people does one family pay money to? 

Times….the number of lost jobs, foreclosures, repos…..?

YOU BETTER HAVE OYSTERS FOR DINNER TO NIGHT….

YOU HAVE GOT TO FIND SOME BACKBONE ….BY MORNING….V.

Emergency Room Please……the economy is worse than sick….it is going to be dead or on life support….if we do not but emergency stops in now…..##%@ …stimulus….

Does this….( ! )  ….stimulate you Congress?…..It may be too late…..#@%&ers……

Emergency Stops for Homeforeclosures, Repos, Income Taxes due from folks who lost jobs last year….the alternative to do nothing is severe to consider….

REPUBS….INACT THIS BILL NOW…YOU OWE THE NATION AN APPOLOGY….YOU SHOULD WRITE THIS BILL AND PASS IT IN A WEEK….

WE WILL TALK ABOUT AMENDS AND RESTITUTION AND CONVICTION ….when we have stopped bleeding and you plead your case in court…until then…this would be a good first start.

This is not my personal story….it is the screams I hear when I close my eyes….V.

Dear President Obama….some many posts starting that way …where were you?

Where were all of you “Dear Mr. President….letter writers during …8-Gate?

Where was all of the minutia oversight?

Where was all of the free unsolicited advice and criticism?

Where were all of the GOP article writers?

8-Gate has been the Apex of the Corruption Pyramid of the Presidential History.

‘Let no man talk…that kept his mouth shut during 8-Gate“.

Frankly, you have no opinion and as in GWB’s own words…..

“If you are hiding a terrorist, you will be treated the same as a terrorist“.

‘nough said?….V. 

 

 

That is the term I have been looking for….8 – GATE….to describe the Bush 8 years in office without saying his name and dialog on the corruption….remember…you heard it here first….It will rank up there with the others that I also invented….that been said and copied over and over.

Nothing describes it better…..’ 8 – GATE ‘…..V.

Car Payment.?….Mortgage Payment?…..Credit Card Payment?….which do you pay first?….

Car Payment?….got to drive to work…to make money for the mortgage and car payment

Have a car payment because….if you do not drive a late model car….it won’t last until it’s paid for to be reliable to go to work.

Mortgage Payment?…..If I make the Mortgage Payment….the car payment is going to be late…the family has to have a home to go to school and work…sleep and eat…feel secure.

Credit Card Payment?….Buying groceries  and gas on credit…Credit card interest payments are insane…can’t catch up….got to go to work and feed the family….make a Credit Card Payment….can’t pay the Car Payment yet….

Add to that….bad or no medical insurance….emergency home repairs…like broken pipes from winter storms….appliances replaced….car repair….car insurance….do we drop the life insurance this month?…..

Roof is leaking…..can’t charge a new roof….

Cut back in hours…..

One or more Parents …aging and ill…..

Older child lost job or marriage…moving home….

Sibling needs a sofa…no job….

Emergency Room Please……the economy is worse than sick….it is going to be dead or on life support….if we do not but emergency stops in now…..##%@ …stimulus….
