Just in time for this feeling of Christmas that is overcoming me! (suppose to be 25 in the morning!! Of course, being this far south, next week could be back in the 80's ) SO excited!
Here is the deal - I will send something handmade or just a small gift, to the first three people who tell me that they are interested.
The catch is that you then have to grab this picture and Pay It Forward on your blog!
You can send anything you wish! If you are not interested you can still comment on this post, as I will only choose the first three people who express interest in Paying It Forward! Let's spread the love through blogland!
As I invite you to indulge with me on the materialistic side of Christmas . . .
I saw this video on See Through Faith
And now to step up on my soap box. I know the economy is in bad shape. I know that as I sit in this quiet shop and prepare for the influx in customers I am praying for. I know that as I hold one eye shut and look at what bills are coming up next.
BUT, as for all these big company bailouts . . .I think if you get a government bailout, you therefore become an extension of the government, and therefore should be set up on the same government pay scale as say, let's see, the Department of Family and Children Services or the Department of Ag or the Federal Rangers. CEO's have to give up their million dollar salary for the sake of the company/country. Want a bailout? But bought a $30 million dollar retreat on pay from the company sinking? Sell it and reinvest in the company, in the workers that are not getting paid millions and cannot afford to or deserve to lose their job due to your short sightedness (one word or two?? hmm) and greed.
So CEO asks for government bailout, government says yes, company is now funded by government, CEO and executive staff now live on normal wages. Company saves millions in the first month alone! Problem solved. Or, could the company make some changes that would take care of their squeeze without burdoning every tax payer in America, just so they(executives) can continue to recieve their excessive salary?
