Cost of the War in Iraq
WARNING!!!! if you know me personally, you may read my diary, but if you do, you take the chance of hearing things you don't want to know, misunderstanding what I've written and being hurt by it. If you are unsure if it is ok to read, save yourself and me the grief and heartache, and ask first!!! Please note that this is a DIARY, ie my subjective feelings, hearsay, suppositions, and outpourings of ranting of the moment. It does not represent objective news, the whole of what I think of a topic or someone, or even a thought-out representation of any of the above. Keep that in mind. Thanks. * Here is a Diary Etiquette Read Me.
The Real Godfather's Mafia
Fucking American head honchos.
Yesterday the exchange rate on my US dollar contract was 1.1945 or somesuch.
A year ago today the exchange rate on my US dollar contracts was 1.3439.
At the end of march 2001 the exchange rate on my US dollar contracts was 1.5265.
Let's see. That means for $1000 US of work I earned $1526.50 Cdn four years ago.
And you wonder why last november I argued the South Koreans up from $6000 US for the work to $7000 US for the work... I knew the $7000 would be WORTH $6000 by the time the work was done and paid a year later.
Yay for bankrupting your country. Hope it feels good.
I guess I just have to work 40% harder to make up for the loss in pay.
Why don't you approve another $84 Billion this week for Iraq. Better to pay US companies to rebuild bombed Iraqi infrastructure (and pay for the bombs to ruin them in the first place) than to actually invest in building American infrastructure.
Stupid fucking selfish shits. ooooh... let's give ANOTHER contract without bidding to our friends! And why don't we name them head of the World Bank too since they are SO good at taking money from the people and giving it to the rich CEOs? Yay yay!
Boy I am in a mood today. But calculating how I sign contracts in 2001 and got paid iin 2004 (one book took forever for the writer to finish the text), so that the agreedupon dollar amount is worth 30plus % less makes me cranky.
Go War Machine Go!!
Oh, and don't forget! Cut healthcare, but remember to keep braindamaged vegetable people in highpriced hospital beds on life support for 25 years in CASE they come back cuz we LOVE LIFE!!! YAY PEOPLE GO!!! It's ok... we know that them darkies and white trash will just get depressed and drink and then their kids will be braindamaged and fall out of school and commit crimes and then we can PAY OUR OTHER FRIENDS to build PRISONS and lock them up!! YAY!! WE LOVE OUR CITIZENS!! WE LOVE THE WORLD!!
YAY!! WE WANT INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL COURT FOR DARFOUR but NOT FOR AMERICANS overseas! WE are ABOVE THE law!! yeah go america go america! corruption arrogance and greed RULE THE BIG ONE!!
GOD IS THE REAL MAFIA GODFATHER!! Kill for God!! Protection Racket for God! Pay up now or we'll break your fingers for god!
I think I better go back to the accounting.
The first rant of the night is here folks.
Note Added What is WITH you people today?? If you are not a fundamentalist Christian who believes in the rapture and thus is into raping the earth as we know it, the aphids entry religion part was not about you personally. If you are, then you are a stupid screwed up idiot who is worse than a hamster who at least knows not to shit in his waterdish. If you are a human who insists on drinking water out of individual portion plastic containers instead of turning a tap or something a little less damaging, then that part IS about you. If you are a human being on the earth, you are an aphid sucking a plant (the earth) dry, ie killing your host. That is about all of us.
Likewise, this entry, you may note, is about Fucking American Head Honchos. If you are not a Head Honcho, ie Bush and his cronies in office and big business, then this entry is not about you. If you voted him in or support him, then you are a self-fucking-over aphid who is seeing your purchasing power go out the window and into the hands of the war machine and the contractors along with your healthcare and you are to blame. If you are other americans, well, then this entry is not about you, except you are victims of your decreasing purchasing power and idiot head honchos who are interested in lining their pockets with power and money at your expense. Please don't write me comments saying "don't hate me cuz I'm american". How small-minded do you think I am. Hello? Grrrr. That's about as stupid as... un american?? hehe.
4 People have left cute, callous or caring comments on the wench's wordiness!!
