Sorry everyone. I hadn't finished but somehow I just sent it off. Am a bit fractured today but that is another story. Now where was I? Yes, do you think that my idea ia a good one? I picked up the phone and called the P.M's office and told his secretary to give this message to the P.M. immediately so we could save the country. My credit card interest is 47% and a loan for agriculture is 27% - it is disgusting how the banks are gouged our eyes out. His secretary listened and then she laughed. That's right she laughed and said that I should write it down and gave me a fax number for him. I felt so stupid. Here I am coming up with an idea for the fat cat banks to show a little patriotism to their country and she laughed. Surely the share holders would agree to give some of their profit. I feel to crawl under a stone and hide. Has anyone ever made you feel this way?

Yeah, sure people have treated me like an idiot. Sometimes I was being an idiot, mostly I wasn't. Are you going to send the fax?

I dunno. That's why I am asking you. Is it so stupid to ask them to show that they care enough about the country to give a one off and let us survive until mid March?

Stupid to ask, no. But will they actually do it? Chances are pretty slim, I'm betting.

she probably laughed because she knew the banks are greedy and will not do it

Yes......but I shouldn't have let him as life is just a matter of opinion! so don't let it get you down. Some people just think that they are smarter...watch out though...they might take your idea....use it and call it their own!

Several people have advised me to write him a letter but email a copy of the letter to our major newspaper. I am thinking about doing this. He raised chicken price by 17.5 % yesterday and it is the same on all basic foods like rice and flour. 17.5% on everything. I will manage but plenty won't be able to and it is all a bit scary. I thank God for my faith in Him because he has never let me down and even in my darkest days when I thought that He was not there I can look back and see that He was there using people to help me. Afr we have eaten on Christmas Day I will pack up lunch boxes and distribute to the homeless with my children and the two Grands that will be with me. Children must learn to help those, who no fault of their own are down and homeless.

For her to laugh at u is very tacky. That was just like pouring fuel onto the fire, i'm sure. She's the one who shound be crawling under a rock, not u cynthi. I imagine i would have a few choice of words for her if it had been me. i'm sure it wouldn't have done any good but think it would have made me feel better anyway. That was very, very tackt, the smart A$$.

Funny. It seems your idea got to him in one way or the other as the implemented plans bear somewhat of a similar nature. Get the banks and financial institutions onboard. They really sit plump with profits earned while the poorer citizens are heavily taxed. Never mind that woman. You would be surprised what her bail out plan might be if she was asked for one. It might just end up being the one she laughed at. Some people's main job in this world is to kiss up to certain people and try to make others look bad by trying to put them down. I find that get so mad and fume for quite sometime when people get to me that way. Ha.... they are a bother.
