You want me to wear this???

We all have fragile egos. We want to be accepted if not loved by all. In personal relationships women and men are both fragile. Especially true around a Hallmark holiday like Valentines Day. For the single, not-involved man or woman it is a time of sadness, of longing, a recognition of something is missing. Or perhaps it is a time of reaffirmation in your decisions to be without a significant other. Possibly you are still reeling from an encounter that left you hurt.

If you are in a relationship it can be even worse. Pressure is applied to both men and women to proclaim their love in some new, over the top, romantic way that demonstrates to their partner and, more importantly, to their partner's friends (especially the woman's girl friends) that this fragile relationship is strong. Even married folks go through this because Oprah and Dr. Phil tell us we have to rekindle the love in the relationship - keep the sparks flying.

For men the pressure to show your love is awful. Striking the delicate balance between too much and too little. Too much sexy and you can turn her off, too little sexy and she will think you are not attracted to her. Too much candy and she will think you are trying to ruin her diet, too little and she will assume you think she is fat. A dozen roses? Please, why not two? A card from Hallmark, that's trouble because it did not come from your heart. You can't win. Ladies- give them a break!

For the lady we have to accept the "nothing there" lingerie and model it for you so you can tear it off. But it is embarassing, especially if she does not feel physically up to the standard portrayed by society as sexy. All ladies have body issues. For me, my breasts are too small which makes it hard to fill out the C+ cup bra, teddy, cami, etc. that you lovingly picked out. Men- give us a break!

But nothing is worse than planning a big event to every last detail. Everything is just right. You even took the time to build up the event. To get him or her excited yo ugave them some details of what was to come, perhaps you even called it life changing in ways only you can imagine. S/He is properly stimulated now. But at the reveal, the moment arrives with an audible thud. Hopes are dashed, hearts are broken. On Tuesday we all bore witness to just such a courtship. For weeks there was build-up as hints were exchanged. Proclamations were made. Impatient people were chastized. Non supporters of the relationship were bitterly scolded over and over. "I know what I am doing," he said. "And I am right to do this! You will see, she will love me for my actions."

Well that was not the case, our erstwhile lover was rebuked. Tim was his name and the girl he was courting was America. Mr. Geithner and his boss, Obama, proclaimed the necessity of the stimulus, it finally passed, and then they rolled out a new bank bailout plan. The more they talked about it during the day, the more the Dow sank. It resulted in a 4.6% loss on Wall Street. 4.6% of the trillions of dollars invested on Wall Street evaporated. Ofcourse it will balance back out and yesterday it rebounded a little. The rebuke must sting Mr. Obama. You came on prime time monday night and lectured the smart people of Washington and Wall Street. You told them how smart you were and how dumb they were. You are not working with them. You were quoted as saying that most if not all economists agree that something big must be done. This week the WSJournal has had a myriad of opinion piece written by nobel laureate economists and academian economists at prestigious schools panning your plan. I'd like to hear you spin that. And by the way, instead of saying this is the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression (a fear tactic) why don't you tell the truth. This is the worst economic crisis since the Carter Administration. Which was fixed by Reaganomics. Lowered all taxes and CUT government spending as a percentage of the GDP from 1981 to 1982 to 1983 and then he maintained it for the remainder of his eight years. It worked.

I will leave you all with a great piece of advise. If you want to get the right gift for your lady or man (or country for that matter) all you have to do is listen. Listen to what she wants. If she hasn't said so, ask her what she wants. And listen. In the end, be tender, speak with a loving voice and tell us something you love about us.

I decided a few year's back to stop listening to the MSM, including FOX, MSNBC, CNN and the rest of those corporate controlled propoganda machines.  I also decided to take whatever any politician says, Republican or Democrat, and think the complete opposite.  Ok, let's understand this "bailout" in simple terms:

We - our government and ourselves - get into trouble because we can't wait to save up for what we want and, accordingly, borrow from banks in order to satisfy our wants, rather than our needs.  Then, the banks can't help themselves and enjoy the fake wealth they are creating on the balance sheet, so they continue to overlend to those that cannot pay back.  Then, the economy slows down because people are not able to borrow any more money that they and the banks don't have anyway.  Then, the government, Democrats and Republicans (except for Ron Paul, of course), decide that the best thing to do is steal more money from us and future generations through inflation (printing money) and borrowing more nonexistent money from China, Saudi Arabia, etc to give to the banks so they can lend more money to an already debt ridden society.  However, the banks then decide that they are not going to lend us the money that was stolen from us in order to save themselves.  And the Government is doing this to stop another Great Depression.  All the meanwhile. those of us that have lived within our means are expected to pay for those that a) lived beyond their means and b) enabled those to live beyond their means.

This, my friends, is the complete opposite of capitalism.  In fact, it is worse than socialism IMO. 

And let's be honest here, the only thing that is going to be stimulated from the "stimulus" plan is the size of the government and jobs reliant on the government.  Oh, and I almost forgot about those "Green" jobs that are necessary because humans are overheating the Earth, nevermind the overall temperature f the Earth has decreased over the past 8 or so years.  This cooling is also happening simultaneously with less activity from the that big orange thing in the sky.  Sometimes I think humans are the long lost cousin of the dodo bird. 

But it can get better, right?  The government can actually cut it's costs, bring the troops it has stationed in 130 countries home, people can start getting jobs, and we can begin manufacturing things again!!!  Woo hoo!!!  Oh, that's right, i forgot that Clinton put through NAFTA and Bush put through CAFTA, which all but eliminated any manufaturing, which is what made the US such a prosperous country.  And all this so corporations can avoid paying taxes and take advantage of cheap labor.  Now, American's are stuck in a service economy that creates absolutely nothing besides debt.

But I digress...

Anyway, thank God I stopped listening to the mainstream media and started listening to those whackos in the alternative media.  Had I been listening to the hacks in the MSM, I would have kept my money in the market wondering if we are in a recession.  Instead, those whackos informed me we were in a recession and it was only going to get much worse.  Thankfully, I listened to them and pulled all of my money out of the market when it was at 12,000 and bought gold bullion, which has not only retained its value, but has actually increased in value.  Now, 2 years later the MSM is catching up and reporting what the alt-media has been reporting this whole time.

It's not too late ladies and gentleman.  I know you have taken a hit in the market, but it is only going to get much worse.  What we are coming up on is going to make the Great Depression look mild.  Protect your assets and purchase as much gold and silver as you possibly can.  These are real money and have proven for 6,000 years that they will retain their value while fiat currencies such as our own come and go the way of the Weimar Rupublic, Zimbabwe, Argentina, and countless other.

Someone mentioned Reagonomics earlier.  The following is an article by Paul Craig Roberts, who was the Assistant Secretary of Treasury under Reagan and widely known as the Father of Reaganomics.  He now writes for a few of those whacko alt-media sites, but he breaks down where we are and just how much trouble we are really in.

Good luck all...

And you'd better turn up the heat in the house, because none of those sweet unmentionables are warm! - my advice.

Stock market is off another 220 today.  Thank goodness we rammed that load of pork down our throats as fast as they did.  I am sure they averted an unbelievable callamity as a result.

I love the hypocrasy.  American excess like the Elkhart RVs serving as the backdrop for Obama's plea and yet he supports Green policy, what is green about RV's?   When did RV's become a necessity?

I used to never like valentine's day because of former girl friends that i had i would have just been fine by being at home. JUst to give you a quick history about her, she was learning to be a theropist/phycologist and she wrote a paper on me and seen how far she could push me. I damn near took my life cause of her. she treated me so bad that when i met my wife my lfe snap back. i think if a man take two minutes every day to tell his wife how special things are there would be no need for valentines day.

i hear everyboby talk about the economy and i think if we talked more and work thing out it would come back. People should not point a finger just fix the peices that are broken. and overhaul the program so it never happen again. I feel that this stimulus package is just a cover up the broken and will not over haul the economy. we need surgery to fix this not a bandaid.

Smorgie you hot and sexy so live it up, and if any man or woman was not excited to see you in sexy ligerie. Then they are absolutely nuts and need to get help!

Everyday? well that would make things more interesting.  I say that because ladies in my area use that for the special occasions only when really that type of clothing in that 1 time use doesn't really do it for me.  Everyday wear is more appealing to me but I suppose thats me.

Just because I find the school girl outfit to be my tastes doesn't make me a pedo btw.

 

I think there are only so many ways to dice an egg.  Obama could not have used the "fear itself" tag line without getting mauled for it the next day.  I think many of us were expecting some sort of epic speech about the issue that would have had a last imprint on our minds for years to come.  Its hard for me to remember the last time a president gave a stirring speech where a line from it carried on forever.  I'd say the last time would be Ron when he said "Tear down this wall", then maybe JFK before him.  No I wouldn't disagree Cindi that it could be construed that way but really..........what else was he supposed to say?  I mean people aren't lining up at the soup kitchens or workin for nickels exactly but perhaps the people who live in detriot feel that it is that way for them.

Granted its better to inspire hope amoung the masses but selling sunshine and moving a bill are 2 different things.

Big breasts are not the end all and be all.

WIDH,

Agreed. Fit of the garment on the other hand is important.  That is why I shop for my lingerie in Europe.  French and Italian designers cater to European women who tend to have smaller breasts.


Sunnyside - lingerie for single use is silly and wasteful, agreed.  I wear mine everyday - not wasteful.


I wonder how you would describe Obama's comment:  "....worse than the Great Depression..."  Do you see it as statement of fact or a statement designed to elicit an emotional response?  Because recessions / depressions are measured on their economic indicators (GDP, jobs, inflation, et al) I can prove it is not a fact.  So this leads me to conclude the statement is made to elicit an emotional response.  The emotion could be classified as fear or desperation or something like that.  Would you agree?


FDR is known for the saying during the Depression, "We have nothing to fear but fear itself."

Will Obama be known for all but proclaiming, "The sky is falling, the sky is falling!"

Seriously though, this day has been coming for a long while and we, the American people, have found that our legislators do not appear to be listening or even seem to care about the American people.

No body to blame but our selves.  Though we seem very willing to change presidents, too many senators and congressmen serve what seems to be endless terms.  When we keep electing the same represenitatives, what do we expect?  Remember how they voted when election time comes around.  Some examples:

elected to the senate in 1979

  1. Ted Kennedy, elected to the senate in 1962
  2. Arlen Specter, elected to the senate in 1981
  3. John Kerry, elected to the senate in 1985
  4. Chris Dodd, elected to the senate in 1981
  5. Joe Leiberman, elected to the senate in 1989
  6. Daniel Inouye, elected to the senate in 1963
  7. Danial Akaka, elected to the senate in 1991
  8. Dick Lugar, elected to the senate in 1977
  9. Carl Levin,
  10. Thad Cochran, elected to the senate in 1979
  11. Kit Bond, elected to the senate in 1987
  12. Max Baucus, elected to the senate in 1979
  13. Harry Reid, elected to the senate in 1987
  14. Jeff Bingaman, elected to the senate in 1983
  15. Patrick Leahy, elected to the senate in 1975
  16. Robert Byrd, elected to the senate in 1959

I could keep going but what is the point.  And this is just the Senate.  There is something about elected officials who have served the same post for 20+ years that should alarm us.
