"$50 Billion Dollars?"

Willie update….The other day a really good feeling came over me. I thought about it then I realized, I forgive my cat for biting me. I am so glad I didn’t act impulsively and do something I would regret and be sorry for. Don’t get me wrong, he’s still in hot water and is on his last chance. That hasn’t changed but he is taking his pill. I have got to give him credit. We go through the pill giving sequence every morning after breakfast and in about 5 seconds after I drop the pill in his mouth ,I see and feel him swallow and its done. I think he is beginning to believe that he is supposed to feel like he does. His aggressiveness is gone. He eats well, goes to the bathroom like normal and it seems like there are no negative side affects. He sleeps a little too much but that’s OK. Now its part of the morning routine. I expect him to gain weight but I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it. Its all “One day at a time“.

I just heard the President wants to spend 50 Billion dollars to create jobs working on highways. Where does he come up with this stuff. Where is this money? Like I said, this guy lives in a bubble. The question is, jobs for who? Its just another band-aid fix. Another bail out. What are these people going to do when their 50 or 60 years old. Will they be citizens by then. Is the government (we, you) still going to continue to pay. The idea is to stop spending, stop charging things, lower the prices. Doesn’t he realize when its all said and done, prices go up and taxes go up. Most of the people that will do this “highway work” are not are our responsibility. The other day I was behind an Illegal in the grocery line who was using a Connecticut welfare card to buy Cigarettes and draw money out of his card. You can do that here. He used hand signals and every third word was a barely understandable English word. He had a tough time with "$20 dollar increments". Didn't know what that was.….Total price to the Connecticut taxpayers $19.87 for 2 packs of cigarettes and $40 dollars change… I got sick….
