One Hundred Days with Little to No Change

Posted by TheCanvasGrey on April 28, 2009

What a mess we are in! And I am getting the full force of it all…coming and going!

Not only have many of my good investments gone down with the ship from greedy CEOs and board members being baled out but this tidal wave of tax and spend is nothing more than “robbing Peter to pay Paul” and means I will also get taxed to death.

When do those of us who’ve played by the rules, done the right thing and are law abiding citizens going to get treated right?

I mean it. I can hardly believe this is the America I pledge to….

It really makes me wonder if the small businesses I see here in Hampton Roads going out of business is because of true economic hard times or something else.

For years I’ve wondered how all these businesses competed and now I know…through massive debt, which was plainly stated by the President himself.

So now…our country is going to do the same thing…it really, really makes no sense whatsoever!

Why would you want to take something that is so bloated up and try to bloat it even more unless there was a reason?

So what is the reason…a depression? How will more debt make that go away? No one is making any sense any more.

It seems to be political posturing with global domination, power and greed…just like the past…nothing has changed…only the players.

The Party is OVER…

Posted by TheCanvasGrey on February 10, 2009

The spending party is over…we need a stimulus package…hmm

Seems like a contadiction in terms to me.

I was slightly impressed with the questions asked by the media. I was impressed with some of the president’s answers. He eluded to the truth the most when he said the spending party is over.  Yet it sounds like it isn’t if things are continuing as usual and we are going to spend our way out with more credit, more debt.

I’d like to have heard where all the money for the package coming from? Maybe that will be answered today.  Will someone please explain it in detail?  Now, where is the website?  Why can’t we see what they are arguing about now in this package?  Details…we need them. 

Why didn’t the president have all these economist there with him to explain?  Why didn’t we just hear it all last night instead of having to wait until today…oh no upstaging anyone…even in a “crisis” isn’t allowed.

Did anyone hear the reason why the taxpayers aren’t getting more tax cuts to spend it? They don’t trust us to “spend” it.  Did you hear our president say that? 

The reason being prudent thoughtful people would be saving it because it is going to get worse no matter what is done.  That is exactly why the banks aren’t spending their part.  Right now the banks are busy spending/defending why they aren’t spending the money and why they are spending money on their poor employees, for morale.  Wonder how that will make those that get laid off feel in a few months? 

What a mess!  It hasn’t happened over night and has been going on since the 1960s when credit was available to the masses and credit cards became the “in” thing to have and then usher in the hippies and the greed of the 1980s, 1990s the decade of salary explosion, add 15 years of health care cost crisis and what do you get?  

We are about to place a band aid on a large deep wound, just like we did in health care with HMOs.  It won’t work to solve the problem.  I doubt it will help in the short term either.

By the way, the fear mongering and the urgency factor are unbecoming to a person who campaigned against that very thing. 

I wish I could see a real change…thus far, not so much…unless you want to move deeper into socialism…which we’ve been in for a long, long time…now it will be even deeper.

FIVE-YEAR-OLD DEMANDS TO KNOW WHO THE NEW PRESIDENT IS!

Posted by TheCanvasGrey on November 3, 2008

“Who is the new president?” 

“Voting is tomorrow.”

“WHO is the NEW presadent, Mom?”

“We go vote tomorrow and after that we will know.”

“When are we going to know who ‘it’ is?”

“Maybe late tomorrow evening, after you are in bed.”

“I need to know who the new president is because voting is important.”

“Yes, it is very important.  That is why Daddy and I take you with us when we go.”

“WHO IS THE NEW PRESDADENT?”

“We will know sometime on Wednesday, MAYBE.  That is all the information I can give you about when we will know who the new president will be, Young Son.”

“Well, I need to know who the new presadent is Mom.”

Ya know who this exchange reminded me of?  The media.

The Outcry for CHANGE!

Posted by TheCanvasGrey on February 7, 2008

FightingWindmills turned me on to a post at CheeseSlave.

After reading through I just had to ask some questions of us all:

I’ve read something like this on more than a few topics and not just about Monsanto (see the open letter to Hillary at Cheeseslave).

Cheeseslave says “I’ll have to learn more about Obama but I have a sense that he is the latest Prius they are trying to roll out to keep us in the dark.”

Cheese, you are right about this.  It is all a smoke screen.  This open letter is just the TIP of a huge iceberg on so many things it makes my stomach churn.

Deb, you are right about the FDA.  Pressure for drugs to make us live forever, you know.  **wink, wink, nudge, nudge**

And there is NO truth in advertising anymore…okay, there is half truth in advertising, leaving out critical information that could steer you to um, EATING YOUR VEGIES or a VITAMIN deficiency…and away from their product du jour.

I could go on and on about what is wrong because there is so much.  Unfortunately ONE PERSON (a new president) isn’t going to fix it all. 

It has to be a huge change across our nation, it has to be an outcry so long and so loud from millions upon millions before the kind of change needed is going to happen.  A wave of change has started, it needs nurturing and growth.  So that 4 to 8 years (or even 12) from now the people who caught the wave can be in positions (legislative, judicial) to support and uphold the changes that NEED to be made in the STATES and in FEDERAL governments. 

That is a lot of people needed to ride the wave much less keep the energy of the wave high…is it YOU?  Are you willing to commit to politics, start in your community, local, state levels?  Holding offices of change in your area?  Are you willing to get into politics at the state or national level to support a person in a presidency that will need the support to really change things? 

A president can’t do it alone.  Are you willing?

I’m asking these questions thoughtfully…not antagonistically.

Cahoots or Conspiracy Part Trois!

Posted by TheCanvasGrey on February 1, 2008

Original post:  Cahoots or Conspiracy?

Follow up post:  Cahoots or Conspiracy Part Deux

The saga continues:

Oh so much to catch up on, Obama gets support of the entire Kennedy clan, liberal left endorses Obama.  Hillary can’t control Bill?!?  People are dropping out of the race like flies BEFORE “Super Tuesday” and can we just cut to the chase please. 

***rolling eyes***

The Dems have made history already and America is still itching to make some more history.  The best the Repubs can offer will be two “old school” men (sorry to disappoint but I don’t think Paul and Huck can hang much longer) so that leaves them out of history making possibilities.  

So it boils down to the Dems.  Since their policies are already left wing all the other factors would come into play; personality, likability, the favored, the beloved, strong, either a black man or a white woman. 

Although Obama is handsome and charismatic it would be a miracle to overcome this former president’s spouse.  After all Bill is equally charismatic and handsome to some (obviously not me).  😉  And as painful as it is to write this, there is still too much bigotry in this world/America (from all sides) to hope against hope that a black person could hold this office…just yet…I do believe (KNOW) it will be in my lifetime.  Plus his name is Obama…dag nab the fates! 

So the only conclusion THIS grey canvas can come to is that Hillary is our first woman President who is also married to a former President. 

Obama will continue to be popular…maybe Vice Pres. or the first black Pres. but definitely not against THE CLINTONS, not in 2008.  Make no mistake, Hillary and Bill are running together (no matter what they say in public).  There is an historic legacy to obtain, and they will by God.  The Kennedys were a diversion. 

Do you feel like a pawn?  It’s okay, we will soon take up our knight and bishop status it just won’t be for another 8 to 12 years but we (the people) will get the power back!

I’m done now.  😉

Posted by TheCanvasGrey on December 6, 2007

Just in case anyone missed the latest duck, duck, goosing in politics.  Here is my original post. 

Update November 26, 2007

***Oprah will campaign for Obama*** 

Update December 2, 2007

***Rove leaves the kiss of death for Obama making the way easier for Hillary to reach the oval office!  Do you really think he is trying to HELP Obama?  Funny that Rove writes this shortly after Oprah’s announcement.***
