You know... back in the early 90's... Canada has some serious federal debt. The Wall Street Journal called Canada a third world country refering to the debt as the reason for the description. Today Canada has a surplus... and the United States has a per-capita debt that is - in relative dollars btw - twice what Canadas was way back when... What's the WSJ saying about the US debt... the ballooning crazy ass debt in the United States? Nadda...
Why do you have such debt? Is it because you have such a well funded school system? Or maybe it's because you have such affordable health care for the population? Or maybe it's because you keep giving the little guy a break on his / her tax return?
The top 1% of income earning Americans have received more tax breaks since the Reign Of The Bushes started than the breaks afforded the rest of the spectrum all rolled together... in fact the difference is so dramatic that it defies comparison. And where does the money you pay in taxes actually go? Do you have any freaking idea how much a single "smart bomb" let a lone a couple of hundred thousand fire-and-forget missles cost?

Have a wonderful year sweets and I hope you make memories worth carrying with you for all time as the calendar rips away the pages.
September 1. A couple of years ago I met this ineteresting young woman... Suzanne... in LJ... Her name is serraph although she goes by Jennifer too... :D what a confusing name thing. :D But that doesn't matter. The point is that she is one in a million and I mean that most sincerily. What an amazing woman... Building homes for the homeless in Mexico, working in a trade that deserves to be called a "profession" that is dominated by men and doing a damn fine job of it... An adorable addition to the Rennisance Fairs that she loves so much and a girl with an outstanding sense of value. You are nothing short of a wonder woman! And while I would love to ask you tie me up with your golden lariat and make me tell the truth... the truth is already on the page. You are a remarkable and precious woman. I hope that this next year warms your heart with the love of friends you can depend on and that you look back on the decisions you have made with great confidence. Happy Birthday sugar...
September 3 mandelion Happy Birthday Mandy... I know you have been through hell this last year, so it makes the wishing a no-brainer... Have a peaceful, healthful and somehow, comfortable year sweet Mandy. May you have all the time and love you can handle with sweet little Sam and may you be well cared for by the system of doctors that have been letting you down for too long. You have been a very considerate and caring friend to me Mandy... Thank you. And I do very much hope for your year to pass with much happiness in your world.
... and there's one more... but that's for later. :D
