I like the idea of sending IOU's to the people I owe money to, and I just wonder since GM got money because they were in trouble, do you think they will forgive my car loan???

I know the feeling. I do try to get fresh fruit and veggies in season, and cut other things out. I try not to listen to the news too much because it gets me depressed! The medical depresses me more. Because I have Medicare as primary, although I do have a secondary, in order for me to get a good internist in this area, I have to pay $2,000 extra a year.

Seems like The USA is deep dodo. I will not stress too much or at least I'll try not to. We have 3 boys 2 teenagers so I do not have to explain how the food goes... they vacuum it up pretty well. My older teen works by choice. He just got his permit. Even he is seeing how life really is in his young life. My food tracker will tell how things are cause I am lacking on fruits and veggies. All I know is by faith I will make it. emoticon

TRUST IN THE LORD, AND DO GOOD; SO SHALT THOU DWELL IN THE LAND, AND VERILY THOU SHALL BE FED. DELIGHT THYSELF ALSO IN THE LORD: AND HE SHALL GIVE THEE THE DESIRES OF THINE HEART.

Illinois is in a similar situation... way behind on paying it's bills. Looks like it may get worse before it gets better.

I am lucky, I am not an emotional eater, so this economy stuff doesn't effect me that way. However, I agree that the state's, such as California need to be taught how to budget and spend their money on the right things. What I think is awful though is to hear the Obama administration say they are not going to bail out the states by giving them funds, but they had no problem giving it to big corporations such as AIG and CITIBANK, to name a few. Not to mention the auto makers, who have laid off our citizens, closed dealerships and are in bankruptcy anyway. Can't help the people in these broke states, but could help these businesses okay. Gee, wonder why that was? I am just sorry for anyone out there who is hurting. Take care of you.

I grew up and worked in California till 1995. I am glad I am out of that mess especially now. But, lots of my family are still there. The government of the state is in a mess. Poor financial decisions have been made there for years. The movie capital people don't represent the people of California.
The states that are in stress need to be accountable to themelves and not expect anyone else to bail them out.

I think we are going to have to buckle up and hold on, people. Things are going to take awhile to turn around.

How many are finding it affects your stress and in turn, your desire to want to eat more/more often? I know I have to be very aware of what my mind is thinking so it doesn't control my appetite.



I can do ALL things through Christ, who strengthens me.

Can someone please explain to me how California, movie capital of the world, can be running out of money?

And while you're at it, can you explain how New Jersey, home of many millionaires, can be "functionally bankrupt?"

i heard on the news this morning that the state of california is giving out iou's to their vendors because the state has no money. how are these vendors going to pay their bills with these iou's? this recession is getting bad but a state like california can get away with giving out iou's. will the mortgage company, electric company, gas company, telephone company & the supermarket take an iou from me?
