Fail Fail Fail

Everyone who had a hand in this failure to pass this Bill failed. There are no winners right now. My family had to recoup whatever little they had in the market, and we bailed on everything to do so.

I'm a fiscal conservative too, but this was a very important rescue plan for all the US economy. The rollercoaster effect around the world has only just begun. Sigh.

  • So sorry to hear of the fiscal losses. I guess we're [my man and me are] so poor they can't hurt us. I'll buy you a cuppa joe when you're here [sorry. fourbux is getting too rich for my blood].

  • Thanks, Ruth Anne. I know it sucks when you hear of someone complaining of an economic downturn in their lives, when another person doesn't even have that to complain about.

    But my dad is in his last days. My mother was in charge of our finances, and I was in charge of keeping our home going.

    We're going to have to retool everything, if it gets worse. Right now, holding pattern.

    But if I disappear, you and I hope others might have to forgive me.

    And hey, coffee is on me! But thanks for your offer. :)

    Cheers,
    Victoria

  • I didn't realize Dad's condition was so grave. Prayers your way. I know it's not easy.

  • Things will work out. They'll get this together after the Jewish holiday. Don't panic and stay for the long run. Peace.

  • I'm sorry to hear about your dad, Victoria. And it's rotten that the current situation is adding worry to your burden. You and your parents are in my thoughts.

  • I, too, pass along from my heart, my concern and love for your folks, Vic.

  • Hey guys, I'm a little embarrassed at my recent admission that times are tough.

    But that you were all so kind as to send me your positive vibes and prayers, means so much to me.

    Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    Cheers,
    Victoria

  • Whatever happens Vic, please don't disappear on us. We did worry a lot when you were gone. No need to be as amazing with the posting as you have been lately, just an occasional smoke signal would suffice. And don't forget that we care and would gladly lend what emotional support as needed.
