Birthdays & Being Thankful!

February 7, 2014

** The Day **
I Turned Another Year Older

While in the car headed out to meet with two friends for lunch at The Corner Bistro. It was a GREAT lunch, with the Friends who were also with me when the Over the HILL 40th Birthday rolled around .. 22 years ago.  { February 7th  }

Late Yesterday (Thursday) I received a birthday card from my cousin in NC… a Phone call last night from TWO Aunts .. who then both sang “Happy Birthday” to me …

Then an e-mail this morning {Friday} from a (special) cousin in NC who said something like this “that on this day God had created a beautiful baby . and to enjoy my day” (something like that) {so I think I did OK}.. and then the lunch … arrive home…

Came home, (after checking in on Mom and Dad) & another phone call from my aunt with wishes again…. went back to Mom & Dad’s … and cake … (daddy now sleeping) SO mom and I watched the opening of the Sochi 2014 Olympics … and that was wonderful to share with my mother. (the cake was good too) …

A couple more ‘messages’ from two cousins….

So turning my age – is not bad …

I look forward to what the year has in store for me, & when things get tough as they sometimes do, I’ll have friends who will listen, give support, give hope, share LOVE…

How many of you knew this?

Meaning of the Flag Draped Coffin

I hope you take the time to read this … To understand what the flag draped coffin really means … Here is how to understand the flag that laid upon it and is surrendered to so many widows and widowers.

Do you know that at military funerals, the 21-gun salute stands for the sum of the numbers in the year 1776?

Have you ever noticed the honor guard pays meticulous attention to correctly folding the United States of America Flag 13 times? You probably thought it was to symbolize the original 13 colonies, but we learn something new every day!

The 1st fold of the flag is a symbol of life.

The 2nd fold is a symbol of the belief in eternal life.

The 3rd fold is made in honor and remembrance of the veterans departing the ranks who gave a portion of their lives for the defense of the country to attain peace throughout the world.

The 4th fold represents the weaker nature, for as American citizens trusting in God, it is to Him we turn in times of peace as well as in time of war for His divine guidance ..

The 5th fold is a tribute to the country, for in the words of Stephen Decatur, ‘Our Country, in dealing with other countries, may she always be right; but it is still our country, right or wrong.’

The 6th fold is for where people’s hearts lie. It is with their heart that They pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States Of America , and the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for all.

The 7th fold is a tribute to its Armed Forces, for it is through the Armed Forces that they protect their country and their flag against all her enemies, whether they be found within or without the boundaries of their republic.

The 8th fold is a tribute to the one who entered into the valley of the shadow of death, that we might see the light of day.

The 9th fold is a tribute to womanhood, and Mothers. For it has been through their faith, their love, loyalty and devotion that the character of the men and women who have made this country great has been molded.

The 10th fold is a tribute to the father, for he, too, has given his sons and daughters for the defense of their country since they were first born.

The 11th fold represents the lower portion of the seal of King David and King Solomon and glorifies in the Hebrews eyes, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

The 12th fold represents an emblem of eternity and glorifies, in the Christians eyes, God the Father, the Son and Holy Spirit.

The 13th fold, or when the flag is completely folded, the stars are ! uppermost  reminding them of their nations motto, ‘In God We Trust.’

After the flag is completely folded and tucked in, it takes on the appearance of a cocked hat, ever reminding us of the soldiers who served under General George Washington, and the Sailors and Marines who served under Captain John Paul Jones, who were followed by their comrades and shipmates in the Armed Forces of the United States, preserving for them the rights, privileges and freedoms they enjoy today.

There are some traditions and ways of doing things that have deep meaning. In the future, you’ll see flags folded and now you will know why.

Share this with the children you love and all others who love what is referred to, the symbol of ‘ Liberty and Freedom.’

MAYBE THE SUPREME COURT SHOULD READ THIS EXPLANATION BEFORE THEY RENDER THEIR DECISION ON THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE.

FORWARD IT; MAYBE SOMEONE WITH THE NECESSARY POWER, OR POLITICAL AND FINANCIAL INFLUENCE, WILL GET IT TO THEM.

IN THE MEANTIME, MAY GOD PROTECT US ALWAYS.

ONE NATION, UNDER GOD, WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL.

No changes with FB just yet … & Twitter

Well a friend on FB, Robert, has been trying to figure out what & why, asd did another (Hal), but when you try & ask & help via FB, you must sign in to see the comment(s), questions for FB, Help for FB, etc. and as they FB had blocked/locked me out, there was NO way I could see the comments or questions they had trying to help me – let alone the HELP section that FB has …. no way to contact FB because it is locked – they locked me out…so anyway I did give it a valent try again this morning when Robert had tried with a comment/question to try & figure it out … ! Saw the OLD picture that belongs to my OLD (original) account .. said only one photo in one album.
O K ~~~ I’ll bite. Saw my sign in – gave my password a try & low and behold it let me in and had a message for me :::

::::::::

Welcome Back to Facebook

Your account has been reactivated, but it may take a few hours for your content to be fully restored.

::::::::

Can you imagine!  It might be that Suggestion I send them last night after the cell phone verification!  AnyWay … I wrote on Robert’s Wall and maybe he will pass it on .. as I stated to him and to you that want to take no chances.  See I enjoy FB & the friends I’ve met – but somethng has changed with FB and their handling of what is seen.  I’d marked all as ‘Friends‘ because if you did not I would not see anything, even though FB had marked them as ‘friends’ did not mean that they were / yet.  And family – well that is another story.  And if you wanted to see what ANYONE had to share since your last visit – you MUST put them on the FEED.  Otherwise you miss what they share … and if THEY do not have YOU on the FEED list they will never see what YOU (me) Share. Messed Up that is.

So nevertheless, I’ll wait and see, as I’ve not received an e-mail from them .. so pins and needles for now.

As for TWITTER, for the time being, I will Tweet & see if they figure out what is going on with my account over there.  There should be no way that MY account should show a ‘REPLY @ / COMMENT @’ with my own name!  All the DM’S I’ve sent shows as
DM’S instead of anyone sending them to me.  Like the Fact that I use TrueTwit to verify … it Tells ME … to verify!  So for now I’ll keep Twitter a ‘few’ more hours or days.

Stay tuned!  In the meantime … or Better YET – keep reading here on my WordPress Blog!

Practice Makes Perfect!

This is just one of those things that I’ve hated doing for all the years

(don’t go there) that I’ve been grown enough to do – yet the ‘art’

of doing this has always infurated me

to the point of just doing it quick and putting it in the closet.

Perhaps NOW with this I just might be able to perfect it!

For those who can’t stand the scrunching and bunching:

how to perfectly fold a fitted sheet.

See – now maybe I can fold those sheets – can you – or will

you be learning with me?

Memory Lane

Memory Lane

 

Memories we will make

of moments we share

of happy times

and sorrow shared.

 

Memory Lane

We all have one:

Take change of this life

and make it a good one.

 

With lots to share

of love we hold…

sorrow we bare…

while growing old.

These memories we build

and share you see…

BUILD that love

for all to see.

 

They’ll think back;

long after we’re gone,

of the good times we had,

not in sorrow…

but SONG!

 

Take hold of this thought:

Down Memory Lane -­

Share all you can to help

someone else;

Build a Memory Lane.

A Chilling Letter…………..

***I did not write this letter – nor – do I know if it is ‘real’ but within the first few words – I felt it ‘OK’ to share it with you for YOUR reading!***

 

Chilling Letter from a Proctor & Gamble Executive to

President Obama

 

By Lou Pritchett, Procter & Gamble

(THE LAST SENTENCE IS THE MOST CHILLING)

Lou Pritchett is one of corporate America’s true living legends – an acclaimed author, dynamic teacher and one of the world’s highest rated speakers. Successful corporate executives everywhere recognize Him as the foremost leader in change management.  Lou changed the way America does business by creating an audacious concept that came to be known as “partnering.”  Pritchett rose from soap salesman to Vice-President, Sales and Customer Development for Procter and Gamble and over the course of 36 years, made corporate history.

Dear President Obama:

You are the thirteenth President under whom I have lived and unlike any of the others, you truly scare me.

You scare me because after months of exposure, I know nothing about you.

You scare me because I do not know how you paid for your expensive Ivy League education and your upscale lifestyle and housing with no Visible signs of support.

You scare me because you did not spend the formative years of youth growing up in America and culturally you are not an American.

You scare me because you have never run a company or met a payroll.

You scare me because you have never had military experience, thus don’t understand it at its core.

You scare me because you lack humility and ‘class’, always blaming others.

You scare me because for over half your life you have aligned yourself with radical extremists who hate America and you refuse to publicly denounce these radicals who wish to see America fail..

You scare me because you are a cheerleader for the ‘blame America ‘ crowd and deliver this message abroad.

You scare me because you want to change America to a European style country where the government sector dominates instead of the private sector.

You scare me because you want to replace our health care system with a government controlled one.

You scare me because you prefer ‘wind mills’ to responsibly capitalizing on our own vast oil, coal and shale reserves.

You scare me because you want to kill the American capitalist goose that lays the golden egg which provides the highest standard of living in the world.

You scare me because you have begun to use ‘extortion’ tactics against certain banks and corporations.

You scare me because your own political party shrinks from challenging you on your wild and irresponsible spending proposals.

You scare me because you will not openly listen to or even consider opposing points of view from intelligent people.

You scare me because you falsely believe that you are both omnipotent and omniscient.

You scare me because the media gives you a free pass on everything you do.

You scare me because you demonize and want to silence the Limbaugh’s, Hannitys, O’Reillys and Becks who offer opposing, conservative points of view.

You scare me because you prefer controlling over governing.

Finally, you scare me because if you serve a second term I will probably not feel safe in writing a similar letter in 8 years.

Lou Pritchett

 

This letter was sent to the NY Times but they never acknowledged it.  Big surprise! Since it hit the Internet, however, it has had over 500,000 hits. Keep it going. All that is necessary for evil to succeed Is that good men do nothing.. It’s happening right now.

 

The CHANGE is here!! 90% of Americans will forward this.                                         

WE HAVE HAD ENOUGH!  

 

Picking Lemons

 

THE LEMON LADY!!!

 

Sally Mullihan of Coral Springs, Florida
decided to take one of the jobs that
most Americans are not willing to do.

 

Sally Mullihan

 The woman applying for a job in a Florida lemon grove

seemed to be far too qualified for the job.
She had a liberal arts degree from the University of Michigan
and had worked as a social worker and school teacher.

The foreman frowned and said,

“I have to ask you,

Have you had any actual experience in picking lemons?”
“Well, as a matter of fact, I have!
I’ve been divorced three times,
Owned 2 Chryslers and
Voted for Obama.”
 
 

SENIOR BANKING

 

Shown below, is an actual letter that was sent to a bank by an 86 year old woman. The bank manager thought it amusing enough to have it published in the New York Times.

Dear Sir:

I am writing to thank you for bouncing my check with which I endeavored to pay my plumber last month.

By my calculations, three nanoseconds must have elapsed between his presenting the check and the arrival in my account of the funds needed to honor it.

I refer, of course, to the automatic monthly deposit of my entire pension, an arrangement which, I admit, has been in place for only eight years.

You are to be commended for seizing that brief window of opportunity, and also for debiting my account $30 by way of penalty for the inconvenience caused to your bank.

My thankfulness springs from the manner in which this incident has caused me to rethink my errant financial ways. I noticed that whereas I personally answer your telephone calls and letters, but when I try to contact you, I am confronted by the impersonal, overcharging, pre-recorded, faceless entity which your bank has become.

From now on, I, like you, choose only to deal with a flesh-and-blood person.

My mortgage and loan repayments will therefore and hereafter no longer be automatic, but will arrive at your bank, by check, addressed personally and confidentially to an employee at your bank whom you must nominate.

Be aware that it is an OFFENSE under the Postal Act for any other person to open such an envelope.

Please find attached an Application Contact which I require your chosen employee to complete.

I am sorry it runs to eight pages, but in order that I know as much about him or her as your bank knows about me, there is no alternative.

Please note that all copies of his or her medical history must be countersigned by a Notary Public, and the mandatory details of his/her financial situation (income, debts, assets and liabilities) must be accompanied by documented proof.

In due course, at MY convenience, I will issue your employee with a PIN number which he/she must quote in dealings with me.

I regret that it cannot be shorter than 28 digits but, again, I have modeled it on the number of button presses required of me to access my account balance on your phone bank service.

As they say, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

Let me level the playing field even further. When you call me, press buttons as follows:

IMMEDIATELY AFTER DIALLING, PRESS THE STAR (*) BUTTON FOR ENGLISH

#1. To make an appointment to see me

#2. To query a missing payment.

# 3. To transfer the call to my living room in case I am there.

#4 To transfer the call to my bedroom in case I am sleeping

#5. To transfer the call to my toilet in case I am attending to nature.

#6. To transfer the call to my mobile phone if I am not at home.

#7. To leave a message on my computer, a password to access my computer is required.

Password will be communicated to you at a later date to that Authorized Contact mentioned earlier.

#8. To return to the main menu and to listen to options 1 through 7.

#9. To make a general complaint or inquiry. The contact will then be put on hold, pending the attention of my automated answering service.

#10. This is a second reminder to press* for English.

While this may, on occasion, involve a lengthy wait, uplifting music will play for the duration of the call.

Regrettably, but again following your example, I must also levy an establishment fee to cover the setting up of this new arrangement.

May I wish you a happy, if ever so slightly less prosperous New Year?

Your Humble Client

And remember: Don’t make old People mad. We don’t like being old in the first place, so it doesn’t take much to piss us off.

Why we are Proud

From the Darkness of the Day

 

Memories will continue but as the World continues

to grow with each passing year WE continue

to NEVER Forget the events of that Day

The DEATH of those whose lives were cut too short.

This year the Tenth YEAR
We as a Poeple of the Worlds
 World of Nations who were stunned that day
brought the darkness into the light
turning the Darkest Day on American Soil
into the Bright Hope of the future that lies ahead.
 
From this day forward it is my hope that as we continue to
Remember from Year to Year
as we’ve stated
We Will Never Forget
^*^
To now remember not those lives lost
but to turn and remember the lives that
WERE SAVED!
There is WHITE Hope
as the White Dove with the sign of peace
to continue with the WHITE to overtake the darkness
that shattered our lives and our world that day
September 11, 2001
 
Today I wore my White Shirt as the
symbol I created (WhiteShirts) to bring the
Life back into the hearts and mind of those who
we not only lost as a person
but a person who we shared
laughter, love, joy, fear, death, birth, work, freedom, play,
together as one unit or a family of freinds and family
We all lost whether we were connected or not
Because of that day we are now forever connected in the Darkness
that we need to turn to the light of white beauty day
Would the loved ones really want us to stop and dwell on the darkness
or build futures brighter than they could have imagined
I hope tht those who lost loved ones know just how
much the World as a Whole Unit
felt your pain that day and the days that would come
May all those who have gone continue to rest in peace
but may you savor the joys of life share with them in your hearts
 
 
 
This is my last 10 year remberance wearing the
WHITE SHIRT for all of your loved ones.

(yes it is White!)

This is A Way to Remember September 11th – 10 Years

 

 

September 11, 2011 – When America and the American way was Attacked!

The Twin Towers, The Field, The Pentagon

With the Memorial years in the making – lets show our way of celebrating their lives for us. 

What would be nice to do for the upcoming (just around the corner) for the Ten (10) Years that changed all of our lives in some way or another …. It is something that I will never forget … and I know that there are so many more that will not forget either.  AND that does not include any of the family members and their friends of those lost. 

That was a Day of BLACK! September 11, 2001

I would like to start something … to show that all of those within the Social Media and beyond come together to let the families know we will NEVER Forget.

Everyone has a T- shirt or Shirt — THAT is WHITE!

Let’s turn the Day of BLACK into the DAY OF WHITE….

EVERYONE wear WHITE SHIRTS on September 11, 2011 …. the TEN Years We Have Not Forgotten & Will Never Forget!

Wear them the days of
September 9th … 10th & 11th …

Friday is a WORK DAY – so maybe the OFFICE you work will
do something!

Saturday is usually a FUN DAY – Family & Friends Plans!

Sunday is the Day it turned BLACK and WE WILL turn it WHITE!


Friday – Saturday – Sunday the days to start healing

Can we start this going around and see where it ends.

I will never see the actual memorial but it would be wonderful to see thos white shirts

showing the WORLD we did NOT Forget … Remember there were not just Americans

who were lost that day … It was a day that the AMERICAN peopel came together

and we can do this again in a positive way!

Wear White to show the LOVE we have & the LOVE we all lost that Day!

Excitement! Dancing with the Stars

I for one am really excited about one of the ‘Dancers’ … among others … but I find this ‘actor‘ so very talented and if you watch All My Children – You too know this talented actor!

Celebrity Duck Faces

While these are a ‘new’ thing to me – I guess I’ve seen them & NOT know what they were – Until now…….Who Knew?  There are certainly some that do it ‘OK’ while others should NEVER do it again.  Some might need a little practice or just give up …. some seem to be natural at it!

What is a DUCK FACE?

Well this is how the Celebrities say it’s done……

How do you do the celebrity duck face? It’s a little pucker, a little pout and a whole lot of attitude.

 This is one of my favorites listed …and you too will probably agree.

Social Security

An old Social Security card with the "NOT...

Image via Wikipedia

 So who is responsible for the SS mess we are in today

History Lesson on Your Social Security Card

Just in case some of you young whippersnappers (& some older ones) didn’t know this. It’s easy to check out, if you don’t believe it.  Be sure and show it to your family and friends. They need a little history lesson on what’s what and it doesn’t matter whether you are Democrat or Republican. Facts are Facts.
Social Security Cards up until the 1980s expressly stated the number and card were not to be used for identification purposes. Since nearly everyone in the United States now has a number, it became convenient to use it anyway and the message, NOT FOR IDENTIFICATION, was removed.

 An old Social Security card with the “NOT FOR IDENTIFICATION” message. Our Social Security

Franklin Roosevelt, a Democrat, introduced the Social Security (FICA) Program. He promised:

1.) That participation in the Program would be Completely voluntary,

No longer Voluntary

 

2.) That the participants would only have to pay
1% of the first $1,400 of their annual Incomes into the Program,

Now 7.65% on the first $90,000

 

3.) That the money the participants elected to put into the Program would be deductible from their income for tax purposes each year,

No longer tax deductible

 

4.) That the money the participants put into the independent ‘Trust Fund‘ rather than into the general operating fund, and therefore, would only be used to fund the Social Security Retirement Program, and no other Government program, and, 

Under Johnson the money was moved to The General Fund and Spent

 

5.) That the annuity payments to the retirees would never be taxed as income.

Under Clinton & Gore Up to 85% of your Social Security can be Taxed

Since many of us have paid into FICA for years and are now receiving a Social Security check every month — and then finding that we are getting taxed on 85% of the money we paid to the Federal government to ‘put away’ — you may be interested in the following:

———— ——— ——— ——— ——— ———

Q: Which Political Party took Social Security from the independent ‘Trust Fund’ and put it into the general fund so that Congress could spend it?

A: It was Lyndon Johnson and the Democratically controlled House and Senate.

———— ——— ——— ——— ——— ———

Q: Which Political Party eliminated the income tax deduction for Social Security (FICA) withholding?

A: The Democratic Party.

———— ——— ——— ——— ——— ———

Q: Which Political Party started taxing Social Security annuities?

A: The Democratic Party, with Al Gore casting the ‘tie-breaking’ deciding vote as President of the Senate, while he was Vice President of the  US

———— ——— ——— ——— ——— ———

Q: Which Political Party decided to start giving annuity payments to immigrants?

AND MY FAVORITE:

A: That’s right!

Jimmy Carter and the Democratic Party. Immigrants moved into this country, and at age 65, began to receive Social Security payments! The Democratic Party gave these payments to them, even though they never paid a dime into it!

———— — ———— ——— —– ————

Then, after violating the original contract (FICA), the Democrats turn around and tell you that the Republicans want to take your Social Security away!

And the worst part about it is uninformed citizens believe it! If enough people receive this, maybe a seed of awareness will be planted and maybe changes will evolve. But it’s worth a try.

How many people can YOU send this to?

Actions speak louder than bumper stickers.

Marinated Mozzarella
Marinated blocks of fresh mozzarella in an Mediterranean-inspired mixture of olive oil and seasonings, then top with tangy sun-dried tomatoes and fresh rosemary. Since it needs to marinate for 8-24 hours before serving, this appetizer is a great make-ahead choice.

Ingredients

1 (8.5-oz.) jar sun-dried tomatoes, drained and halved
1/2 cup olive oil
3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
Garnish: flat-leaf parsley sprigs or fresh rosemary stems

Preparation
1. Cut blocks of cheese into 1-inch cubes. Arrange cheese cubes and tomato halves in an 8-inch square baking dish.
 2. Whisk together 1/2 cup olive oil, chopped parsley, and next 6 ingredients; pour evenly over cheese cubes. Cover and chill at least 8 hours or up to 24 hours. Transfer mixture to a serving plate. Garnish with fresh flat-leaf parsley sprigs, or spear tomato halves and cheese cubes with short rosemary stems, if desired. Drizzle with marinade, if desired.

One Evil Human    
      
FROM STEVE KROFT (of TV program 60 Minutes)
   
This is very interesting material. Glenn Beck has been developing material to show all the ties that Soros has through the nation and world along with his goals. This article is written by Steve Kroft from 60 Minutes.  It begins to piece together the rise of Obama and his behavior in leading the nation along with many members of Congress (in particular the Democrats, such as the election of Pelosi as the minority leader in  Congress)
   
If you have wondered where Obama came from and just how he quickly moved from obscurity to President, or why the media is “selective” in what we are told, here is the man who most probably put him there and is responsible. He controls President Obama’s every move. Think this is absurd?   Invest a few minutes and read this. You won’t regret it.
 
Who is Obama? Obama is a puppet, and here is the explanation of the man or demon that pulls his strings. It’s not by chance that Obama can manipulate the world. I don’t think he knows how to tie his shoe laces. After reading this and Obama’s reluctance to accept help on the oil spill, you wonder if the spill is part of the plan to destroy the US.  “In history, nothing happens by accident. If it happened, you can bet someone planned it:”  Franklin Delano Roosevelt
 
Who Is George Soros? He brought the market down in two days. Here is what CBS’ Mr. Steve Kroft’s research has turned up. It’s a bit of a read, and it took 4 months to put it together. “The main obstacle to a stable and just world order is the United States:”  George Soros”
   
George Soros is an evil man.  He’s anti-God, anti-family, anti-American, and anti-good. He killed and robbed his own Jewish people. What we have in Soros, is a multi-billionaire atheist, with skewed moral values and a sociopath’s lack of conscience He considers himself to be an elitist World class philosopher, despises the American way and loves to do social engineering and change cultures.
   
György Schwartz, better known to the world as George Soros, was born  August 12, 1930 in Hungary. Soros’ father, Tivadar, was a fervent practitioner of the Esperanto language invented in 1887, and designed to be the first global language, free of any national identity. The Schwartz’s, who were non-practicing Jews, changed the family name to Soros, in order to facilitate  assimilation into the Gentile population as the Nazis spread into Hungary during the 1930s
   
When Hitler’s henchman, Adolf Eichmann, arrived in Hungary to oversee the murder of that  country’s Jews, George Soros ended up with the man whose job was confiscating property from the Jewish population. Soros went with him on his rounds.
   
Soros has repeatedly called 1944  “the best year of his life.”  70% of Mr. Soros’s fellow Jews in Hungary, nearly a half-million human beings, were annihilated in that year, yet he gives no sign that this put any damper on his elation, either at the time or indeed in retrospect. During an interview with “Sixty Minute’s” Steve Kroft, Soros was asked about  his “best year.”
 
KROFT: My understanding is that  you went out with this protector of yours who swore that you were his adopted godson.

SOROS: Yes.  Yes.
 
KROFT: Went out, in fact, and helped in the confiscation of property from your fellow Jews, friends and neighbors.

SOROS: Yes. That’s right.  Yes.
 
KROFT: I mean, that sounds like an experience that  would send lots of people to the psychiatric couch for many, many, years. Was it difficult?
   
SOROS: No, not at all. Not at all, I  rather enjoyed it.
 
KROFT: No feelings of  guilt?
   
SOROS: No, only feelings of absolute  power.
 
In his article, Muravchik describes how Soros  has admitted to having carried some rather “potent messianic fantasies with me from childhood, which I felt I had to control, otherwise they might get me in trouble.”  Be that as it may. After WWII, Soros attended the London School of Economics, where he fell under the thrall of fellow atheist and Hungarian, Karl Popper,  one of his professors.  Popper was a mentor to Soros until Popper’s  death in 1994 Two of Popper’s most influential teachings concerned  “the open society,” and Fallibilism.
 

Fallibilism is the philosophical doctrine that all claims of knowledge could, in principle, be mistaken. (Then again, I could be wrong about that.)   The “open society” basically refers to a test-and-evaluate approach to social engineering. Regarding “open society,” Roy Childs writes, “Since the Second World War, most of the Western democracies have followed Popper’s advice about piecemeal social  engineering and democratic social reform, and it has gotten them into a grand mess.”
 
In 1956 Soros moved to New York City, where he worked on Wall Street and started amassing his fortune. He specialized in hedge funds and currency speculation.  Soros is absolutely ruthless, amoral and clever in his business dealings, and quickly made his fortune. By the 1980s he was well on  his way to becoming the global powerhouse that he is today.
 
In an article Kyle-Anne Shiver wrote for “The American Thinker,” she says, “Soros made his first billion in 1992 by shorting  the British pound with leveraged billions in financial bets, and became known as the man who broke the Bank of England. He broke it on the backs of hard-working British citizens who immediately saw their homes severely devalued and their life savings cut drastically, almost overnight.”
   
In 1994 Soros crowed in The New Republic that “the former Soviet Empire is now called the Soros Empire.” The Russia-gate scandal in 1999, which almost collapsed the Russian economy, was labeled by Rep. Jim Leach, then head of the House Banking Committee, to be “one of the greatest social robberies in human history.” The “Soros Empire” indeed! In 1997 Soros almost destroyed the economies of Thailand and Malaysia.  At the time, Malaysia ‘s Prime Minister, Mahathir Mohammad, called  Soros “a villain, and a moron.” Thai activist Weng Tojirakarn said, “We regard George Soros as a kind of Dracula. He sucks the blood from the people.”
 
The website Greek National Pride reports, “Soros was part of the full court press that dismantled Yugoslavia and caused trouble in Georgia, Ukraine and Myanmar [Burma]. Calling himself a philanthropist, Soros’ role is to tighten the ideological stranglehold of globalization and the New World Order while promoting his own financial gain. He is without conscience, a capitalist who functions with absolute amorality.”
 
France has upheld an earlier conviction against Soros for felony insider trading. Soros was fined 2.9 million dollars. Recently, his native Hungary fined Soros 2.2  million dollars for “illegal market manipulation.” Elizabeth Crum  writes that the Hungarian economy has been in a state of transition as the country seeks to become more financially stable and westernized. Soros deliberately driving down the share price of its largest bank put Hungary ‘s economy into a wicked tailspin, one from which it is still trying to recover.
 
My point here is that Soros is a planetary parasite. His grasp, greed, and gluttony have a global reach.  But what about America? Soros told Australia ‘s national newspaper, The Australian, “America, as the centre of  the globalised financial markets, was sucking up the savings of the world. This is now over. The game is out,” he said, adding that “the time has come for a very serious adjustment in American’s consumption habits.”  He implied that he was the one with the  power to bring this about.
   
Soros: “World financial crisis was “stimulating and, in a way, the culmination of my life’s work.”
   
Obama has recently promised 10 billion of our tax dollars to Brazil in order to give them a leg-up in expanding their offshore oil fields. Obama’s largesse towards Brazil came shortly after his political financial backer, George Soros, invested heavily in Brazilian oil (Pet rob ras).
 
Tait Trussel writes, “The Pet robras loan may be a windfall for Soros and Brazil, but it is a bad deal for the US.  The American Petroleum Institute estimates that oil exploration in the US could create 160,000 new, well-paying jobs as well as $1.7 trillion in revenues to federal, state and local governments, all while fostering greater energy security and independence.
   
A blog you might want to keep an eye on is SorosWatch. com. Its mission: “This blog is dedicated to all who have suffered due to the ruthless financial  pursuits of George Soros. Your stories are many and varied, but the theme is the same: the destructive power of greed without  conscience. We pledge to tirelessly watch Soros wherever he goes and to print the truth in the hope that he will one day be made to stop preying upon the world’s poor, that justice will be served.”
   
Back to America. Soros has been actively working to destroy America from the inside out for some years now. People have been warning us. Two years ago, news sources reported that “Soros [is] an extremist who wants open borders, a one-world foreign policy, legalized drugs, euthanasia, and on and on. This is off-the-chart dangerous.”  In 1997 Rachel Ehrenfeld wrote, “Soros uses his philanthropy to change or more accurately deconstruct the moral values and attitudes of the Western world, and particularly of the American people. His “open society” is not about freedom; it is about license. His vision rejects the notion of ordered liberty, in favor of a PROGRESSIVE ideology of rights and entitlements.”
   
Perhaps the most important of these “whistle blowers” are David Horowitz and Richard Poe. Their book “The Shadow Party” outlines in detail how Soros hijacked the Democratic Party, and now owns it lock, stock, and barrel. Soros has been packing the Democratic Party with radicals, and ousting moderate Democrats for years. The Shadow Party became the Shadow Government, which recently became the Obama Administration.
   
Discover The Networks. org  (another good source) writes, “By his [Soros'] own admission, he  helped engineer coups in Slovakia, Croatia,  Georgia and Yugoslavia . When Soros targets a country for “regime change,” he begins by creating a  shadow government, a fully formed government-in-exile, ready to  assume power when the opportunity arises. The Shadow Party he has built in America greatly resembles those he has created in other  countries prior to instigating a coup.”

November 2008 edition of the German magazine “Der Spiegel,” in which Soros  gives his opinion on what the next POTUS (President of the U. S. ) should do after taking office: “I think we need a large stimulus package.” Soros thought that around 600 billion would be about right. Soros also said that “I think Obama presents us a great opportunity to finally deal with global warming and energy dependence.  The U. S. needs a cap-and-trade system with  auctioning of licenses for emissions rights.”
 
Although Soros doesn’t (yet) own  the Republican Party, as he does the Democrats, make no mistake, his tentacles are spread throughout the Republican Party as well.
   
Soros is a partner in the Carlyle Group where he has invested more than 100 million dollars. According to an article by “The Baltimore Chronicle’s” Alice Cherbonnier, the Carlye  Group is run by “a veritable who’s who of former Republican leaders,” from CIA man Frank Carlucci to CIA head and ex-President George Bush, Sr.
 
In late 2006, Soros  bought about 2 million shares of Halliburton, Dick Cheney’s old stomping grounds. When the Democrats and Republicans held their conventions in 2000, Soros held Shadow Party conventions in the same  cities, at the same time. In 2008, Soros donated $5,000,000,000 ( that’s five billion dollars) to the  Democratic National Committee to insure Obama’s win as well as wins for many other Alinsky trained Radical Rules Anti-Americans.  Socialist. George has been contributing a billion dollar- plus to the DNC since Clinton came on the scene.
 
Soros has dirtied both sides of the aisle, trust me. And if that weren’t bad enough, he has long held connections with the CIA. And I mustn’t forget to mention  Soros’ involvement with the MSM (Main Stream Media), the entertainment industry (e. g. he owns 2.6 million shares of Time Warner), and the various political advertising organizations he funnels millions to.  In short, George Soros controls or influences most of the MSM.

Little wonder they ignore the TEA PARTY, Soros’ NEMESIS.
   
As Matthew Vadum writes, “The liberal billionaire-turned-philanthropist has been buying up media properties for years in order to drive home his message to the American public that they are too materialistic, too wasteful, too selfish and too stupid to decide for themselves how to run their own lives.”
 
Richard Poe writes, “Soros’ private philanthropy, totaling nearly $5 billion, continues undermining America ‘s traditional Western values. His giving has provided funding of abortion rights, atheism, drug legalization, sex education, euthanasia, feminism, gun control,  globalization, mass immigration, gay marriage and other radical experiments in social engineering.”
   
  Some of the many NGOs (Non-Government Organizations) that Soros funds with his billions are: MoveOn. org, the Apollo Alliance , Media Matters for America , the Tides Foundation, the ACLU, ACORN, PDIA (Project on Death In America), La Raza and many more. For a more complete list, with  brief descriptions of the NGOs, go to DiscoverTheNetworks.org.
   
Poe continues, “Through his global web of  Open Society Institutes and Open Society Foundations, Soros has  spent 25 years recruiting, training, indoctrinating and installing a network of loyal operatives in 50 countries, placing them in positions of influence and power in media, government, finance and academia.”
 
Without Soros’ money, would the Saul Alinsky’s Chicago machine still be rolling? Would SEIU, ACORN, and La Raza still be pursuing their nefarious activities? Would Big Money and lobbyists still be corrupting government? Would our college campuses still be retirement homes for 1960s radicals?
   
America stands at the brink of an abyss, and that fact is directly attributable to Soros.

Soros has vigorously, cleverly, and insidiously planned the ruination of America — and his puppet, Barack Obama, is leading the way.
 
The words of Patrick Henry are apropos: “Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery?

Forbid it, almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!”

Materialistic Lawyer

Lexus GS 300

Image via Wikipedia

A very successful attorney parked his brand new Lexus in front of his office, ready to show it off to his colleagues. As he was getting out, a truck came along too closely and completely tore off the driver’s door.

Fortunately, a cop in a police car was close enough to see the accident and pulled up behind the Lexus with his lights flashing.

Before the cop had a chance to ask any questions, the attorney started screaming hysterically about how his Lexus, which he had just purchased the day before, was completely ruined and would never be the same, no matter how any car body shop tried to make it new again.

After the lawyer finally wound down from his rant, the cop shook his head in disbelief. “I can’t believe how materialistic you lawyers are,” he said. “You are so focused on your possessions that you neglect the most import ant things in life.”

“How can you say such a thing?” asked the lawyer.

The cop replied, “Don’t you even realize that your left arm is missing? It was severed when the truck hit you!”

“OH, MY GOD!!!” screamed the lawyer.

The World’s Most Outrageous Yachts

Now this is JUST  – ONE - that was shown of 12….

Octopus - One of Twelve Yachts

Octopus

 

Microsoft-cofounder Paul Allen’s 414-foot, blue-and-white megayacht, built for $200 million (and with an estimated annual operating budget of $20 million), is seriously tricked out. The behemoth is equipped with a recording studio, jet-ski dock, full-size basketball court, seven boats, a 63-foot tender, room for a crew of 60, two helipads (each with its own helicopter), and two submarines—one remote-control operated for studying the ocean’s floor, the other with the capacity to sleep eight guests and spend up to two weeks underwater.

THE GERMAN ARTISTS ARE AT IT AGAIN…

 

THE GERMAN ARTISTS ARE AT IT AGAIN
Here are 7 pictures of European trucks whose trailers are decorated to look like the sides are missing and the products they are hauling are painted on the sides and back. The first one is of a bottle of beer and looks so real, like it is coming out the side of the trailer..

The second is of canvas tote bag.

The third is of Pepsi cases and they are all stacked on the ceiling, and the bottom of the trailer is empty.

The fourth is of another truck with the windshield facing the back and there has been a driver painted in the driver’s seat looking back over his shoulder to appear like he is driving backwards. (Now this one is just plain scary, even when the German reads ‘On the wrong way?’)

The fifth one is of an aquarium with fish swimming in it.


The sixth one is of a bookshelf with books lined up in it and a post-it-note with an advertisement on it, probably for the company that sells the books.


The last one is for Pringles-Hot & Spicy. The ‘inside’ of the trailer has the appearance of having been through a fire.


Chinese Proverb:
‘When someone shares something of value with you, and you benefit from it, you have a moral obligation to share it with others.

Inner Peace

 

Inner Peace

 

If you can start the day without caffeine,

If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,

If you can resist complaining and boring people

with your troubles,

If you can eat the same food everyday and be grateful for it,

If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to

give you any time,

If you can take criticism and blame without resentment,

If you can conquer tension without medical help,

If you can relax without alcohol,

If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,

 

…Then You Are Probably………

 

The Family Dog!

 

Public Housing…Not HERE

 

The problem with public housing is that the residents are not the owners. The people that live in the house did not earn the house, but were loaned the property from the true owners, the taxpayers. Because of this, the residents do not have the “pride of ownership” that comes with the hard work necessary. In fact, the opposite happens and the residents resent their benefactors because the very house is a constant reminder that they themselves did not earn the right to live in the house. They do not appreciate the value of the property and see no need to maintain or respect it in any way.

The result is the same whether you are talking about a studio apartment or a magnificent mansion full of priceless antiques. If the people who live there do not feel they earned the privilege, they will make this known through their actions..

The picture below illustrates the point.

 
 

 

The Resolute Desk was built from the timbers of the HMS Resolute
and was a gift from Queen Victoria to President Rutherford B. Hayes.
It is considered a national treasure and an icon of the presidency.

Mr. Obama, you are not in a hut in Kenya, or public housing in Chicago . With all due respect, get your damn feet off our desk!!  

 
 

Annual Physical

 
 
 
 

After the eighty-three-year-old lady finished her annual physical
examination, the doctor said,

“You are in fine shape for your age, Mrs. Mallory, but tell me, do you
still have intercourse?”

“Just a minute, I’ll have to ask my husband,” she said..

She stepped out into the crowded reception room and yelled out loud:

“Henry, do we still have intercourse?” And there was a hush!

You could hear a pin drop.

Henry answered impatiently, “If I told you once, Irma, I told

you a hundred times… What we have is…….

Blue Cross!!”
