Monday Thoughts......Safe Passage to a Better Future....


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
As I sat last night drinking coffee, I imagined if we were sitting drinking coffee what we would talk about....and what are we thinking about....I have thought alot about the last few weeks....watching all of us come together...be Connected...and how that is History....How just a week ago, Our New President rode a train and looked out the windows at the people...US....and he witnessed We The People, he looked out those windows and saw people shivering in thin coats, and houses that need more than paint.....he saw people that need work, medicine and better food and better jobs.We saw a plane crash, steered with care into the water and then the people help each other to safety with calm hands even on Cold Icey Waters of the Hudson. The Pilot was a Hero, but so were the People that helped with the rescue...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
We are all on a New Journey Together...and it is up to each of us to find ways to help each other on this New Journey....How to be calm and how to adapt and work together....and take care of each other....connecting and reaching out. We will not get through the Rough Times alone...it is time to explore the depthes of Out Compassion and Empathy.We need to be able to connect and keep talking.... and Obama will need Our help, Our Creativity, and Our Resourcefulness....He got elected because we all found ways to work together....we are on this Road Together, never underesitmate the Strength of that.

We all have been watching Obama as Our New President act swiftly on multiple issues,and has been working to remedy some of Bush's more egregious Policies....it has been heartwarming and thrilling to see such action, he is a Man of the Law, he taught Constitutional Law....He is attempting to Bring Back and Honor Our Constitution and Rule of Law....I do think we need to be patient, but also nurture our own faith, he is starting to keep Promises within 3 Days....because we have no idea of the Extent of the Level of the Mess that he has been handed on so many fronts, we only have a small glimpse into the horror of it. In the Post below...I have some articles worth reading...and some blogs worth reading....Scroll down there is plenty from this month.

About being able to Breath Again..Song is " Breathing Air Again" Robbie Seay Band

( another song about hope is linked to the title, the song gets a bit religous at the end...but in a nice way...the rest
of the video montage is beautiful.....I just like the messege that we can all breathe again...on this "drive" together...)

Optimism may be the only sure thing we have at this point. Obama's economic team is a disaster in the making. They were the engineers of the current financial disaster and are trying to create another credit bubble to continue the fantasy of 'unlimited growth.' Totally, failed policies. We are headed for a world depression.

Winning the election was "easy". The hard part of repairing the damage while others whine that their pet interests are not being addressed has just begun.

yes...the repair part is extensive- it will take MANY years to even start what they did...and while Bush pretended to fight terra- he also made sure that NONE of the Financial Mess was investigated....and NOW we all know that our financial situation has been destroyed....more damaged than any terra group could accomplish- the irony is horrible...

Mandt::
I dont think the Obama people are trying to create a Bubble- I think they recognize that NONE of the previous Bailout money has reached THE people, for housing or work or job creation...NONE...and so they have to start over....some of what is in this Recovery /Stimulus package should have already be spent on the people....I did not see the Original Bailout( because none of it was public)....but the document is not bad- it addresses jobs and infrastructure- it is only a start......Will it help ? I don't know....Is it worth Trying it with a Democratic plan and different people monitoring it and atleast trying to be honest about it....

FDR did also have to spend some money to try to get some economic efforts in place and in motion....
