You Reap What You Sow!

By George:

The Middle East is in turmoil. Insidious forces are stirring the emotions of the built-in disenchanted populations. I have been waiting for the past few days to see if the vaunted American mainstream media will figure out what is happening and start reporting the Truth. Since it hasn't happened yet, I will jump in with a short analysis of the situation based on observation and logic. So let's start with naming the responsible party for the unrest.

This current instability in the Middle East was caused by the Liberal leaning electorate in America. What? You can't see the connection? All right, let me back up a bit. The cause of this instability is President Barack Hussein Obama who was elected by the fawning Left. You still don't see the connection? In that case, I'll have to start from the beginning.

Separation Anxiety.

By: Allure Graphics - Artist

A lot has been made of the ‘separation of church and state’, to the point when anything that hints at God cannot benefit from public funds. But this is NOT what the Bill of Rights says – separation is never mentioned! The document itself says – “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;” Simply put: A) no establishment such as the “Church of the USA” and B) no stopping people from worshipping who or what to worship. Otherwise there might be problems with American Idol! (Grin).

On a day to day basis people do not run into problems with this amendment. Except for over eager practitioners at airports, proselytizing is not an issue that people deal with. But for me, that changes once education enters the equation. I send my children to a private religious school for their education. This is a choice I made since I feel that the school they go to will better reflect the values that I am trying to instill in my children. A major issue I see is cost. Day schools are a little bit on the expensive side since none of the costs for these schools are subsidized by the state (or county or city) and I think this is patently unfair. I don’t think for a second that teaching of bible, holidays or customs should be paid for by the state the same way I wouldn’t want my tax dollars to be spent on confirmation lessons for Catholic Children. But Reading, Writing, Math, Science, civics and the like that should be the same across any denomination, should have subsidies from the government, based on the taxes that we pay. Say for example, the morning classes focus on Religious studies and the afternoon classes on ‘secular’ studies like math an literature. In such a set-up, morning studies should not and would not get any state funding, and the afternoon would benefit from state assistance.

So why is this not happening? I think that the ‘separation of church and state’ clause that isn't in the Bill of Rights, is making itself felt at this point. The need for separation means that no monies can go to an institution that ALSO teaches anything religious which places an unnecessary burden on those who want supplement their children’s education with the mores that are important to them. If the government wants to put oversight in place to make sure that religious studies are not paid for by tax dollars I don’t think anyone would complain.

The bill says ‘Freedom of religion, not freedom from religion’….

Are We in Favor of Slavery?

By George:

You mention the word "Slavery" to a typical American, and the plight of the African/American Slaves in the pre-Civil War America comes to mind. If the discussion continues, it might even hinge on whether or not the African/Americans are still being discriminated against, yet all will agree that Slavery in America has been eliminated. And since the American public has been taught that America was the last vestige of mass Slavery, we will always talk about Slavery in the "past tense."

Would it then surprise you to find that Slavery is alive and thriving TODAY in certain parts of the world? Furthermore, would it surprise you to know that one of the predominant perpetrators of this practice is none other than the Arab Muslims against the mostly Christian, Non-Muslim population of South Sudan? Can the American mind wrap itself around the idea that even today there are women and children in parts of our globe who are captured into slavery (the men are murdered in the raids)?  Are we just uninformed about this, or do we know and we just DON'T CARE.

Is it REALLY the End of America?

By George:

I have previously done an article on the Predictions of Porter Stansberry, gave you the link to his "video", and promised that I will give you my evaluation and assessment which would not necessarily be based strictly on financial considerations.  I have asked for your comments, and though a large number of people visited the post, only a handful took the time to give us their insights.

But now it's my turn to give you a mind-dump of the topic under discussion, which is: "The End of America".

A Taste of TRUTH.

By George:

As you know by now, from time to time I publish the contents of emails that I get, if I deem them to have some redeeming value. The following is from an email that was forwarded to me about 3 months ago, and it has just surfaced as I was cleaning out my email queue.

It is a translation of an article written by Spanish writer Sebastian Vilar Rodriguez and published in a Spanish newspaper on Jan. 15, 2008.  It was then published by, and now I shall share it with my readers.

By Sebastian Vilar Rodrigez

I walked down the street in Barcelona, and suddenly discovered a terrible truth - Europe died in Auschwitz ... We killed six million Jews and replaced them with 20 million Muslims. In Auschwitz we burned a culture, thought, creativity, talent. We destroyed the chosen people, truly chosen, because they produced great and wonderful people who changed the world.

The Arizona Murders Politicized.

By George:

It wasn't until Saturday evening that I heard about the horrible shootings and murders in Arizona. I read the stories and watched the videos, and my reaction was both anger and sadness. Anger, to realize that such people still walk the streets of America, and sadness for the families who will have to face the future with loved ones now gone or injured.

After the initial shock wore off, my analytical mind took over. There were questions that were not answered by the media that I was referencing. The first question that popped into my mind was, "Why is Sheriff Clarence Dupnik making a political statement at a time like this?" We just witnessed brutal murders of six human beings and the wounding of numerous others, we are waiting for the forensic evaluation of the event, yet this Sheriff is spouting political ideology. Why? Why would he step out his expertise into a speculative rant that has nothing to do with the facts at hand?

Obamacare - Solution or Illusion?

By George:

Here we are at the brink of a new political season, and the GOP contingent has hit the ground running. The first order of business (after the reading of the Constitution), is the repeal of Obamacare.

Depending on which side of the political spectrum you call home, this is either the most noble endeavor, or it is a tragic waste of time. But whatever your position, the fact is that it is in play, and the effort to Repeal will soon be attempted. Now we all know that this reversal of President Obama's "cause célèbre" will not be accomplished with choruses of Kumbaya from the Democrat Party.

Each side to this debate has their rally cry, and arguments. The Democrats and their supporters praise the bill as the greatest boon to mankind, and say that repealing it is fraught with dangers to humanity.  The Republicans and their supporters, on the other hand, offer a plethora of reasons against the viability of this Healthcare Bill.

This article is not written to rehash the arguments of the two sides, nor will I pass judgement on the merits or the demerits of the Bill. What I will do is offer a solution that is logical, and its simplicity should overwhelm all opposition.

It's Raining Birds!

Suddenly since the turn of the year, there have been numerous stories in the media about thousands of birds dropping out of the skies, and thousands of fish washing up dead on shores all over the country. It caught the fancy of the media, both at home, and abroad.

As of this time, no definite cause has been determined, but that does not mean that people have not started to speculate on the origin of these localized extinctions. And speculations run rampant from the simple to the convoluted. Since these deaths happened around the New Year, some blame fireworks, while others theorize that the birds were "....probably asleep in a single tree when a washing machine-type thunderstorm sucked them up into the air, disoriented them, and even fatally soaked and chilled them."

Then of course there is always my favorite read, the Governmental Conspiracy. Now here is something that will keep me awake. Reading this article I learned about how the government is secretly testing something called "..Electromagnetic scalar weapons that can artificially manipulate the environment could be responsible for the mass die offs." Oh, oh.. This sounds really serious. Now I start searching for more data and find additional "facts" about these "scalar weapons".  So now, how am I ever going to get ANY sleep?
