More Financial drama

150 years or more is how long Canada’s bank system has gone without any crashes or mayor financial problems.

 Here in “the best and more profitable country in the world” USA, has had at least 16 episodes of financial collapses (30’s, 70’s 80’s, 90’s, 00’s to name a few) and we still let these freaking banks do as they wish just because they lead the financial market in Wall Street.

 We all agreed and understand how important Wall Street is for our economy, but how in the hell we keep braking records of highs at the Down Jones, and none of us sees any increasing in payrolls, increased values in our homes, 401K increases, or anything like that? Where are our bonuses, the people’s bonuses? For putting up with the calamities and horrors that the financial system made us go through?

 Continuing with the example of Canada, the regulations that are forced by a pyramid system that reaches their parliament has contribute to the stability of that countries economic market because of government control and oversees of anything that goes in or out of the market (regulations).

 So not only they makes us look like children in the case of health care system but also in the financial market as well. What an embarrassment, why isn’t Obama’s cabinet get on top of these thief?

 God knows I have nothing against prosperity, but all these craziness that the White House is going through from IRS scandals to Licks of the NSA are just enough for me. However, stupidity and simple blindness with a little touch of greed, just irritates me so much.

 What happened to our regulations promised by this government about putting the bank sector “on check” and monitoring every move?

We are in debt, every day, more and more due to our lack of financial understanding and to the stupidity of a few.

 Creating these stupid bubbles and fluctuations does nothing good for the country and only benefits a hand full of mother f’s that just squeeze the rest of us for their gains.

 Between the American Heath care system and the fanatical market sectors our country is going to end up in crumbles and in an embarrassment not only to the rest of the world but to ourselves. Please do as much as you can to help so we or/and our children wont end up paying for someone else’s greed and stupidity.

 I know you don’t like hearing this, but lets look up a little to our neighbor in the north and learn a thing or two about how to live in stability and true prosperity, eeeyh !


Fear and Desire


These two terms may seem temporary for many of you or not existent, However, the truth is that must of us are driving all the time by fear and/or desire.

Our “job”, our pleasures, our relationships and many more are driven by these two powerful words. The worse part is that we don’t realize it and fall into this system of things and routines that keep us blind from the freedom of a different reality. That reality that we only dream of. That freedom to do and say whatever we want without any worries.

Many self motivational books from authors like Tony Robins, Dr. Dyer, Robert T. Kiyosaki, authors from the Bible, to name a few, can explain much better what I mean. Nonetheless, no one knows you like you, and no one ever will, so look inside your core, deep inside, and find that little voice that wants to excel and enjoy life.

Please don’t let fear and desire take control of you and do not teach that to your kids. We should go to school, not to get a “better job”, but to be aware of the knowledge around us and contribute to our society for the betterment of such. We should get into a relationship, not to avoid being alone or have kids like rabbits, but to share a life course and grow as a race and enjoy life with your other you. We should not work for some one who makes you feel like a robot, instead embrace your fundamentals and donate notion and intellect to your surroundings so that you and the generations to come will enjoy of a more prosperous and strong society.

I know many of you are graduating this year from High school, a trade school or university or perhaps you know some one who is; the best thing to tell those or yourself is to allow joy enter your, his/her life and control those emotions (fear and desire) while experimenting the beauty of living. Only then you will find yourself content, joyful or even happy. After all that, money will follow. It is part of the nature of things.

And please remember to love as if you never been hurt; work as if it is not for money; and dance as if no one is watching.
