The media brainwashes us into thinking the "economy" depends on it!
Rather than just saying to yourself that you don't need those Nikes or a brand new Bubburban or a brand new home you can't possibly afford,
why can't Americans think ahead and save for the rainy day??
So many have been brainwashed by this crazy American attitude that if you don't spend every dime you have, you are a tightwad!
Saving money in the bank or under the matress doesn't help the economy!
Would it not be nice to have enough to afford to tell the Man to just take this job and shove it??What is wrong with saving money for that rainy day or better yet, for that place in paradise??
There is something wrong with rampant consumerism and America's constant hunger for material goods just to keep up with the Jones next door!..
Suddenly you are out of a job
and have to let your home go
Buy now and who cares about the future until Shylock asks for his pound of flesh!!
Well they are asking for payment now
and this country can't come up with the dough!
America will have to give up it's pound of flesh again at the expense of the American people!
Here in Oz,
a bloke down the beach about where Hedges avenue ends and Flamingo Avenue starts has been rumored to have burned down his beautiful place for the insurance payments...
he was one of these greedocon stockbrokers who bit the dust
even here across the Pacific far away from the States...
the wake of the Madoff madness has reached the shores of Down Unda
so imagine this poor bloke collecting all the the insurance payments for the replacement value of his smoldering mansion ...
and then he sells his burned down place for millions on the beach...
If you want to see how the rich and greedy live on holidays
come to Mermaid Beach
You wonder how many other multimillionaires on the coast ripped off unsuspecting people and even the government???
Ironically, there was a wonderful statue in front of his place with an old man admiring the view..
that is gone now...
I wonder about the very rich family who owns the palace almost next door to us and the brother owns another palace on the same block??
It was worked on for the better part of a year...
Every morning about 6 or 7 we were woken with their noise with laborers working busilyon redoing a palace that looked fine already...
a holiday home for the very rich
What a humongus carbon imprint so he can have his family enjoy Xmas and a couple holidays a year...oh yeah but he supplied maybe a 100 laborers with work... so he's good for the economy!
they had already been working on it for several months before we arrived in September
they import all of the palm trees and extend their area over into what was the sidewalk area for the public to use as a free entrance
Why do people trust greedy basturds
that will generally shaft the common bloke who knows no better
Havent we learned from the depression?...
The only thing that is safe are the government backed banks...
We should question the salaries and credentials of anyone that has acess to our lifetime investments!
PS...Hey it's cool that my site comes up first when you do a search for
"Bush"+"has a grandiose sense of self-importance" "
It seems like I get a hit every other day for Bush and his dry drunk syndrome!

his grandma sent us some mobiles...He has been constantly watching his new toys as they wobble in the bassinette...
Both of us have so much ADD combined with the inherent laziness in the condition
We bought a fan and carried it back all the way on top of the tram ...about a mile away
with no clue that it would be such an operation to figure out how to put it together
and also the toy that Colin will enjoy...it was missing screws ...so we have to find the right screws at the market and then put it together
I'm thinking that both of us will have to try a little addaboy
tomorrow after a good sleep...we will figure it out...
Now it's almost sunny and I'd rather smoke a bowl and enjoy this Sunday after xmas and write to you while I look out at the ocean...
"Several 17th-century clay pipes found on the site of William Shakespeare's home may have been used to smoke marijuana.Though marijuana degrades over time, eight of those pipe fragments showed signs suggestive of marijuana. Two of the pipe samples also showed evidence of cocaine.The results of the study are published in the South African Journal of Science."
"You can always go within to seek guidance, or a new perspective. By turning away from the trappings of the material world to connect with the source of energy within us, we can renew ourselves and look at life from a different vantage point. By using our inner compass as our guide, we are more likely to discover connections at the right time or even just be in the ideal place when opportunity comes along. Whether you’ve found a new use for old files or you come up with a way to use your skills with those of various partners, you are likely to discover that the resources have always been available to you, it merely required the initiative to put them into use. Today is a perfect day to tap into all the resources available and creatively consider new ways to bring abundance into your life."
What do you think?

still running? Hows Father-hood? When did you escape? Hope to here from you."
Wow!! That is so cool that you have a new boy! compardre, Miguel!
When did he arrive into this world?
It's funny that almost a year and a half ago in summer before I met my wife ...
and now it is changing ours!
We finally escaped the "land of the the lost" in early September to have our baby and work on becoming full time Aussies! :)
I was just thinking about you guys and I lost your old number with the old cell phone ..
My bike and Buffy are with the inlaws. I had to build an outdoor pen for her.
I've bought a mountain bike here and it runs great... I do all of our family shopping by the vehicle so we don't have to be slaves to autos and have a fantastically low carbon imprint..
"Land of the lost is a great way to discuss the screwed up way greed and capitalism have destroyed the disorganized states of America!
Write another comment, Raphael!
....mmmm....coool...I have some epiphanies and thoughts that need to be written down... Time keeps accelerating,,,,,
I wake up to the baby crying...we are both exhausted ...I go for a swim and bike...

The New Year is aproaching...and we have to

Maybe we can take a trip to Byron Bay??
It is such a chore trying to get everything ready for our first trip with the Bub...
I am amazed how a single parent can take care of a baby all by themselves!

"Thinking is one of the daily aspects of linear living. Everything you participate with right down to the brand of toothpaste you use is a thought process. It's something you do automatically without understanding the grandness of what is occurring.
Every time you think of something it manifests itself into your daily routine. All occurrences and experience in linear are a result of your thoughts.
Often we are asked to define what will occur with one's life.
A more informative answer would be for us to ask the questioner what their thoughts include. Are they positive? Negative? Or are they a jumble of randomness with no direction? We find that the more troubled the individual is the more scrambled is their thought process.
Our advice is to understand how important thinking is.
If you are currently dissatisfied with your life for any reason take the time to examine your thoughts. If you are truthful with yourself you will be able to see the process that has brought you to where you are now.
How do you change it?
Start by carefully examining what you think about but more importantly how you think.
Your thought creates your reality.
Would it not be a comfort to change those things that are unsuitable for you?
It is within your power.
Thoughts are the most powerful tool in the universe and they are right there in your head.
