For Those of You Living in Washington State

If any of you are interested in casting a "NO" vote on the "Bailout" here are a some local numbers to call.

Maria Cantwell 206-220-6400

Jim McDermott 206-553-7170

Patty Murray 206-553-5545

One of my neighbors figured out that with the cost of this it would cost every citizen in the U.S. $5,000.00. Just multiply that times every member of a household.

Hi Sylvia
Just wanted to drop by and thank you for your comment on Clairz' blog
The Zees Go West - re mental illness. It's surely true that if we don't talk about these things people will never understand and those afflicted will continue to suffer unfairly because we will be able to ignore their plight.
Let's keep the ball rolling!
Also I note the contents of this post. I feel for the everyday American citizen who will be required to pay for the behaviour of greedy people. Let's hope you win the day!

Sorry Sylvia I realise now that we were speaking about different things when I left my recent comment. I was speaking about the bail out money American people are being required to pay to stock market manipulators to avoid a crash.
I hope things go well for everyone.
I understand now that Washington is having a vote on a euthanasia bill?
That's a big issue that we have been trying to face in Australia for many years.

I don't think it is as simple as that. There are too many factors unknown and not understood by the average citizen. Listen to those in the financial world, not government people, but people like Bill Gross who have spent a life time at this. Especially, don't listen to the politicians.

I love you anyway! Lol.

As I said earlier, I really did this for a friend and I'm not at all sure it's the answer, but I was willing to put the numbers out so people could find out for themselves. I'm not a big fan of any of them -- I mean they're government -- that says it all.
