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.
No Crying Uncle Today
You could only sell privatising, and letting people invest their retirement funds in the stock market to a generation that no longer has people in it who lived through the stock market crash of the 1930's. What the hell are they thinking?
They are thinking that that is one hell uv a lot of money that will flood the stock market and finance private industry. That's who the winners are.
And if they go bankrupt, they go bankrupt. Dissolve a company. The CEO can get a job elsewhere. The stocks are worth zippo. Wouldn't it be nice if you could dissolve the needs of pensioners just as easily as a bankrupt company? poof! A few signed papers here, some bad debts written off there, and no more company. Byebye gone. Insolvent.
Oh, what do you mean? People still need to eat even when their stocks were in a company that went bellyup? Or that are worth pennies by the time they were 65 instead of hundreds of dollars when they invested them?? Oh silly people. You can always gnaw your fingers. And if you're cold in the winter, for god's sake, those investment papers are combustible!
Hey, several Conservative MPs here in Canada have broken with Stephen Harper, their leader, and are planning to vote FOR the equal-marriage bill. Hehe. Imagine that. They are not all freaked out that a two thousand year old church will collapse if you let gays living together already, fucking each other already, raising kids already, buying cars together already, going to the cottage and on vacation together already, the right to actually marry each other if they want. Wow. Brilliant.
Ok, no more on that.
I finally came to a decision and painted in the shirt of the Leo's Dog book guy ... hey, know what? His name is Leo!!! At least in several drawings I did... about a third of the book is decided now. Actually that's not true. In several pictures he only has a white tshirt, so that's decided. And in bed which is three pages, he is wearing a khaki green wifebeater. I think he'll have some nice light blue plaid to go to town. So that just leaves the end day... what to wear what to wear. It's worse than going out on a date I swear. Worse than the prom, cuz even though you are immortalized in those prom photos, how many people actually see them? Dang. Gotta pick the right clothes.
My hand and arm are thankful to me for having put aside the South Korea contract for the day. Tomorrow they will be screaming "UNCLE" again, Too bad. You know what's funny? They said I drew too many asian kids. Dang well, it is for asian kids non? I guess it is supposed to take place in America, not in South Korea. I guess it isn't in Vancouver or in San Francisco. They have a hell of a lot of asian kids.
OK, gotta scan in my comic. I am tired. Today I didn't do much that was funny. I put the coffee in the fridge. I know that isn't weird to you, but I only buy like three days of coffee at once, and it is in a brown paper bag next to the coffeemaker. I had to look for like ten minutes before i had the brilliant idea to look in the fridge. Silly me.
Date with Disapppearing Boy on Friday or Saturday. I am taking a night off, can you believe??? I think the Leo's Dog book is going well enough I can continue on Saturday. I cannot believe how fast the weeks go by. Incredible. Yes I am missing my watercolor class again. I would have to be up in four hours. ha ha ha ha.
