 Well – since China doesn’t want to buy our treasuries, I guess we will…… Unsure of the implications to China when this happens tomorrow:

This one is disturbing.
During this time of economic crisis, devaluation of our dollar, banks going under, unemployment skyrocketing, and water for our crops being turned off, there are so many distractions in the news, that we might not be aware that our government finds it important enough, right now, to vote on and try to pass HR-1388 – the Generations Invigorating Volunteerism and Education Act (also referred to as the mandatory volunteer act), which creates the Volunteers in Service to America, the National Civilian Community Corp., and the National Senior Service Corps. This passed the house vote and is now in senate for vote – this one is almost law folks! Pay special attention to the prohibitions of the bill. It is very important that you understand what this bill means – if it means for you to search the internet just to see what other people think about it rather than try to make sense of the legaleze, so that you can at least have a clue of what it is all about, so be it. But please, educate yourself on this any way you can. This is a big change and we, the American people, need to understand the impacts. Not that the house or the senate actually took their time to read and understand what it was all about and what is actually IN the bill (I thought that was their job?????)……. I’m personally very concerned because I’ve read in many places where kids between the ages of 18-25 are required to give mandatory service for 3 months minimum and then get called into service at a later date – but its so hard to read the bill and it is late, I could not verify this as fact yet – but I wanted to get this information out to you as soon as possible, so that you can start researching for yourselves.

Here is one person’s interpretations of pieces of the bill – I’m sure there are lots of these out there if you were to google it

Until next time……………….
