$700 Billion Rescue?

When they say $700 Billion.....take it with a grain of salt. Remember the National Debt? The clock says around 9 Trillion. Of course most of us know it is closer to 53 Trillion. So, is it possible they under estimated? Sure, or is it just another lie?

It seems the Democrats are pushing for earmark$ again. In an Yahoo news article by Julie Hirschfelt Davis, associated press writer, "Democrats are pushing to allow bankruptcy judges to rewrite mortgages to ease the burden on consumers who are facing foreclosure — a nonstarter for Republicans." Do they want to encourage more abuse?

She continues to say, "Democrats also want any potential proceeds the government reaps from the bailout to go to a fund designed to pay for housing for poor families. Many Republicans oppose the very existence of the fund, which they say is a backdoor means of funneling money to liberal political groups." It seems like the Democrats just can't keep from re-allocating other people's money. And they wonder why We the People are "up in arms" about this. I feel the Federal Government is too quick to push for a "solution" to an extremely big problem. I also believe most Americans feel that congress is going to screw this up no matter what the out come is. How can We the People be sure the money will be used appropriately.....since it hasn't been in the past?

THIS IS WHO I AM

Utah, United States
I am a retired grandmother who lost her husband of 42 years in 2010, to cancer. I relocated from Ventura, CA to a community near Salt Lake City, Utah to be with my son, daughter-in-law and two granddaughters. I am a believer in Jesus our Lord and in the true Sabbath as our worship day. I am learning more and more about what our role is here on Earth as well as what it will be when Yahshua returns. I love crochet, watercolors, and writing. My newest passion is writing. I am trying my luck at poetry and short stories. Maybe some day I will try to write a novel. I would love to hear from others who enjoy these crafts; come visit and share your interests.

POLITICAL WATCH


JULY 4 - Time For Tea


The American people came out on July 4 to protest high taxes and run-a-way government spending. From 11:00 till 2:00 p.m., citizens of Ventura, CA came out to show their support for less taxes and less government interference. As a spectator and one who attended the first Ventura Tea Party, I would say we doubled the turnout of patriots.

All across the country the signs, flags and banners that were carried at the tea parties showed the position that the American people are taking toward its government. They are mad and they are not going to take it anymore!
