700 Billion Dollar Bailout


It would be irresponsible of me to not comment on the current financial crisis going on even if it is just for future generations. here is a link to the new york times that could explain it better than I ever could The Wall Street Bailout Plan Explained
all I want to know is when it is talk of universal health care there is no money but when we want to go to war or bail out giant financial institutions the government can pull money out of its ass. the tax payers are going to be paying for it anyway so why not give us socialized medicine.

p.s it was not the dems holding up the bailout but the reps

High cost of getting sick

Heath care is a big problem in this country, the United States, affordable health care I should say. Although we have some of the best doctors in the world you really can’t afford to get sick. I recently went to the hospital after having a slight tightness in my stomach/chest region since I am overweight my family assumed it was heart problems. Well my visit to the hospital consisted of breathing in some medicine that was supposed to help clear my airways, taking some aspirin, having them draw blood for test and taking two pictures. I took one on a standing x-ray like machine and another on a machine similar to an MRI. I’m not sure but I had to lie down on it and be scanned from above. Well I got my doctor bill, which was $400.00, and today I got my bill for the rest, which was a whopping $8000.They wanted me to come back and take some more tests there is no telling how much that would have cost.

Sarah Smiles

The closer the election gets the more it seems Barack Hussein Obama may not be the next president of the united states. The introduction of Sarah Palin has really energized Hillary Clinton supporters it seems to jump party lines and go for McCain. A odd thing since the two female candidates seem to be far apart on a lot of issues and their only commonality seems to be that they both are female. It makes you wonder would we even know about Sarah Palin had Hillary been put on as Obamas vp or if she had won the democratic nomination. Since she was not really vetted like vp candidates are usually, it makes you think she was chosen to lure in Hillary supporters looking to elect a woman. Nawwwwww, people wouldn't ignore issue and vote for someone because they identified with their race, sex or age would they?

seven the movie

I watched the thriller seven last night and it was as good as I remembered, real atmospheric and moody. I also realized something about the movie, the two detectives played by Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman never save anyone. They show up after the crimes have been committed and in the movie's climactic ending Pitt kills the serial killer.
