Passion = Truth? How Jeffrey James Francis Ircink Sees The World? I love when people are passionate about something. That surging of emotion is the one honest measure of what truth is. It's a truthful display of how a person really feels about something or someone at that particular moment. That passion IS truth.

About me...

My photo
Greendale, Wisconsin, United States
Ex-producer of THE REALLY FUNNY HORNY GOAT INTERNATIONAL SHORT FILM FESTIVAL, playwright, actor, singer, outdoorsman, blogger, amateur photog, observer & bitcher, Beach Boys groupie, Brett Favre fanatic, lover of everything Celtic and forever a member in the Tribe of HAIR. Spent most of my life in the Village of Waterford, a small town just outside of the Milwaukee suburbs. After 12 years in North Hollywood, Bel Air and Culver City, Cali, I moved back to Wisconsin in September 2009. No regrets - of moving to LA OR moving back to WI. Have traveled to Belfast, Ireland, Dayton (OH), Manhattan, Seattle, Cedar Rapids, New York, Miami and Sydney, Australia with my plays. Moved back into the Village of Greendale where I was born. Life is good.

And here I thought we were in a recession...

The spending bill which passed last week includes an emergency supplemental appropriations bill covering:

· $660 million to Gaza
· $555 million to Israel
· $310 million to Egypt
· $300 million to Jordan
· $420 million to Mexico
· $889 million to the United Nations for so-called “peace-keeping” missions
· $1 billion overseas to address the global financial crisis outside U.S. borders
· $8 billion to address a potential pandemic flu
· $108 billion loan guarantee to the IMF (International Monetary Fund)

Does anyone know where this money is coming from? Does anyone care? I understand some of this money is helping to fight wars overseas and some will be used to help the financial crisis overseas. But I need a fax machine. And I need new walking shoes. Could use a new pair of jeans. I can't afford them because I'm laid off, saving my money to move back to WI in July and am in my own financial crisis.

Why should our government be any different than you or I?
