Everyone But Me
There is no law in the land IN NEW JERSEY
Whereever I goest, You goest
by Bob McDonnell
The Gov was given an “out” for his wife, to protect her, in which he declined.
Christian on-line Charisma Mag recently posted an article listing the attributes of a man women shouldn’t marry. Bob gives new meaning to the phrase “If I go down, you go down.” Paul Ryan explains to us the breakdown of the family is because of “poverty.” Yeh, O.K.

There is no law in the land IN VIRGINIA
WHAT Day Job?
Scott raised $5 million at end of 2013, paid $86,000 to defense lawyers to prove he wasn’t campaigning for himself while he was supposed to be “working for the people.”
I’ve lost count on how many Governors need defense lawyers. What’s so ironic is, aren’t they all LAWYERS, TOO!
There is no law in the land IN WISCONSIN
The Duke and I
N. Carolina Coal Ash Sludge cover-up a little too late for the Dan River. The word on the street is he is getting booed.
There is no law in the land IN NORTH CAROLINA
Interest of Conflict
Rick admitted to 14 counts of Medicare fraud and paid the federal government more than $600 million dollars in fines for his fraudulent billing practices.
There is no law in the land IN FLORIDA
John WANTS TO HURT PEOPLE. who work 24/7 and can’t get out to vote unless it is on Sunday – Ohio has 9 hour lines. Nina Turner plans to sue against voter’s suppression. She is quoted, and I agree… “It’s hard to fight Evil, and it looks like it’s up to the women. It usually is.”
The is no law in the land IN OHIO
There is a bit of good news.
The Case of the Running Nose
Florida Congressman Trey Radel FINALLY resigned after getting busted for Cocaine.
Are you exhausted, I am. Do you feel like you just read a TERRIBLE book?
I ask you again, Paul Ryan’s statement that the cause for poverty is the break down of the family – it’s comical if it wasn’t so tragic.
What do you think?
Is this a COMEDY or DRAMA?
It certainly is a SUSPENSEFUL MYSTERY.
Do you think any of these men of LAW deserve to be talking about Abortion and the Rights of Others?
Where are the G-men?
AND THE OSCAR GOES TO….Daryl Issa for his good manners and respect for authority. Did a little research on this guy. He’s worth $450 million. He graduated from Kent University in the 70′s where that terrible shooting occurred. (National Guard fired and killed students for protesting against the Cambodian/Vietnam crises.)
Also this was the same time as the Watergate political scandal.
Kent U. is in Ohio the same place where Voter Suppression is its nastiest.
I dunno…the dots don’t connect.
You would think Darrell, a successful VERY successful entrepreneur from California would be totally against the abuse of power, having lived through it at a young impressionable age…AND FROM CALIFORNIA!
When he turned that mic off, and made the “cut gesture” with his hand disrespecting a fellow Committee member– Elijah Cummings…
Well… you know what Jesus said about money….(if you don’t know, He said it is the root of all evil…)
THE REAL OSCAR WENT TO… A few of those nasty Liberals in Hollywood who had the audacity to give God the credit and honor…yes, Matthew McConaughey, you gave God the glory and gave His testimony.
Also, the Oscar Audience was treated to:
….the lady who sang His Eye Is On the Sparrow,
–to a standing ovation.
All those Democratic Hollywood-types standing and giving God glory. Well, what do you know about that. I can hear a few Republican Conservatives sneering and saying… “That’s MY pew!”
Is there something lustful about holding a gun?
Is it a turn-on?
I thought a guy scolding me harshly was going to have a stroke because I had strayed off topic on a certain blog stream. He was really angry because myself and another woman had digressed. I asked him if he was one of those guys who shoots his gun into a car of teenagers because their music was loud and annoying; or, shoots a man in a movie theater because he was texting. He put me in my place by responding back, “No, I’m a Brit and we don’t carry. (OOPS!)
Guns don’t come with “safeties” anymore. Zimmerman-types are AGAINST SAFETIES!
The NRA has done its best to make sure we shoot first and ask questions later. That’s the way they make their bones.
Guns are not for “protection” anymore.
They are for killing.
“For those who live by the sword, they will die by the sword.”
I guess that’s O.K. with me, at least it will be quick.
The Plan was set in motion a few decades ago by Conservative Evangelicals in the Republican party.
They believe if we do away with our Democracy, God will control every aspect of society. This is what Islam believes.
PARADOX: The Christian Evangelical Conservative Men (and Women) rail against Muslims in our Country, but in reality want what Muslim men have. Complete control over women, and everything else. A few ministers will say this is not so, but this is HOW THEY VOTE. When you vote under the guise of fury against Homosexuality and Abortion, you are actually voting against women’s safe health care, keeping guns IN the hands of crazies, and AGAINST assisting the poor, widows and orphans. (This is in DIRECT OPPOSITION of what Jesus ask of us, but, that’s another post.) Theocracies are religious dictatorships ruled by ministers, bishops imams, ayatollahs, you get the picture.
I know, clear as mud, and that is exactly how any ADVERSARY wants to keep us…confused.
Since the “rule of God” would have to be administered by “men’s interpretation of the Bible” they would have nothing stopping them from removing women from positions in Business and Governing, (they just HATE competing with us) and with the BLATANT assault on ALL birth control methods, (get your blinders off) women would be pregnant all the time, home, ignorant and QUIET. (Anyone with two brain cells would WANT birth control to control the population so we can FEED everyone, duh!)
No wonder women are now preferring other women…and men, too.
Thomas Jefferson warned about keeping church and state separate after all, that’s why we left Europe in the first place…REMEMBER?
This is why Michele Bachmann’s mouth is _____. She has not been taught correctly what the Founding Fathers actually wanted for the new Country.
PARADOX: Tea Party folks are afraid of losing their liberties and are the ones bringing that very thing in. And religious men are blaming the Gays and Women who have had abortions on the decline of America, neglecting their own racism, greed, adulteries and gluttony for power over others. Who Knew? (Pharisees have always loved scapegoats, ask Jesus.)
As a Christian, I studied the Bible for myself (Liberty University Home Bible Institute) and have decided there are life-saving truths found there, and the God/Man Jesus came to teach them to us.
But a funny thing happened on the way to the Cross…now, several thousand years later, no one…NO ONE does what Jesus said to do, love your enemy, love your neighbor, feed the poor, forgive others for our (your own) sin….
As for me and my house, my husband and my house… we try to do these things the best we can, but can longer identify with ‘religious institutions.’
Evangelical Conservative Republicans (both men & women) believe Catholics, and the New Pope MAY be the HARLOT in Bible Prophesy, yeh, really… I heard John Boehner and the Pope were going to get together. Perhaps they could DISCUSS THAT!
Have you noticed how many churches are springing up made out of metal buildings? Some don’t even have a steeple and are named names like Church of Fellowship, or Church of Life, or Church of the Tree in the Yard. Just sayin..be careful, maybe they’re not scams, but they will get your money, and maybe make up a gift basket or two, but the money you have given is probably in a CD somewhere growing and being worshiped. Or, maybe in a ‘building fund.’ I’m not knocking the gathering of Believers, just don’t sing beautifully to yourself and then vote NO on helping the poor (Jesus said the poor will always be with us…), and then vote YES on making it HARDER for someone you disagree with to get to the Polls. You might get spewed out…
How Christian Conservative Evangelicals have treated the first African American couple the Country elected ‘twice’ to the office of President, is so shameful I can’t walk into a church, I cannot sing a hymn. I’ve lost many friends, even family.
I heard Huckabee and Trump were hanging out together, they have something in common, the love of money. Something else Jesus talked about. Go ahead and ask your Minister why he is living in a $300,000-$500,000 dollar home…gulp…watch his face redden.
The Christian Conservative Evangelicals teach and preach the Book of Revelation, the final show down between Good and Evil. And they would like nothing better than to bring that showdown in…
WHAT DOES YOUR CHURCH STAND FOR? HOW MUCH MONEY DOES IT HAVE IN THE BANK? HOW OFTEN DOES THE MINISTER WALK THE NEIGHBORHOOD TO SEE IF ANYONE NEEDS ANYTHING?
Everybody knows a McDonald’s Double Cheese is a “gamble” health-wise.
Everybody knows that Mac and Cheese out of the box is considerably cheaper to buy than a $100 juicer and fresh fruits and vegetables.
Everybody knows you have to burn more calories than you take in.
Everybody knows the Health food business is a billion dollar one.
Question: Why did Rush Limbaugh sound off on the First Lady (and not Mr. ENSURE) about good nutritional efforts for all of us?
Answer: He has stock in Papa John’s Pizza. (you know, the guy who had a tizzy about having to do something nice for his employees?)
Get Insured, GOOD Conservative Republicans are FOR all of us taking care of ourselves. Another Paradox
Back in the 80′s I had received my Fashion Design & Merchandising degree and had begun holding rehearsals for my first fashion show in a top nightclub on the famous Country Club Plaza in Kansas City. I was 26, green, extremely honest and trusting. Yeh sure, in the Fashion Industry?? One of the women I hired to model began trying to take over, making decisions on her own, changing my plans and undermining me every chance she got. I hadn’t learned the word “diplomatic” yet, and in anger I spewed out “Hey, you whoo, YOU be the Model and I’LL be the Boss.”
Oh, my Lord! The woman turned red in rage and by the end of the week I had received a summons from her attorney for a concocted lawsuit. I lost sleep and it cost money, but I learned a valuable lesson.
Watch Your Back! AND your Tongue.
Can you even imagine what goes on in both State and Federal Government?
I’m not picking on this guy because I lean to the Left…I support women and their right to stay safe and relevant, I’m against shenanigans with voting suppression and wicked games, I don’t believe immigrants are “the other,” I don’t understand same gender sex but I do understand same gender love. I do understand the commandment Love Thy Neighbor. I digress…
“I AM NOT A WITCH…I MEAN BULLY”
Perhaps New Jersey should have listened to Barbara Buono. I like her. I knew what she was saying was true, when she talked of the powerful Bosses who wanted him in. The all male grip is almost impossible to correct.
Republican leaders are congratulating the N.J. Governor of “good leadership” for throwing his #2 and #3 right-hands under the bus.
If you are a woman working for ANY of the Republican Governors you have been warned…
These people think waaay ahead.
Bullies come in many forms and one person’s bully is another person’s hero. There are several people looking into the bullying going on in our schools. Now you know what they look like when they grow up.
In my church secretary days, one of the many pastors I worked for threw the mail at me so I would I have get up from my desk and pick it up off the floor, then I’d give a false laugh to go along with his joke. Another pastor’s wife got pleasure in leaning down in my face (personal face-space area) when asking me to do something for her. When I recoiled in distaste, she had her husband force me to transcribe from a tiny tape recorder what he did all day, from getting up and letting his dog out to pee, to typing word for word his personal prayer time. (She was a pro-lifer who believed women who have had abortions should go to prison.)
Why have Evangelicals tied their coattails onto the Republican platform when it goes against the prime directive of “loving” people and “not judging” people. Are today’s ministers pharisees? You would think they would at least know The Sermon on the Mount.
We can relate to this woman in that some of us know the feeling of being thrown under the bus upon occasion,
but, you know the phrase “Birds of a feather flock together”?
Most parents try to impart to their young the importance of choosing their friends carefully. Humans tend to take on traits of who they hang with, who they admire. It is entirely possible Bridget began acting like everyone else in the office, but what she didn’t know, that she knows now, is that women are not held in high regard on the far Right. The Church teaches differently, that the Bible says men should love their wives (women) as Jesus loved the Church, however, anyone who works closely with the Church knows in reality women are demeaned there.
The end to my fashion design story, was I have always had the “good” habit of taking notes and in one of my correspondences to the model (this is before e-mails) I had spelled out who was in charge. This ding-bat gal had provided a copy of those same notes to the Judge. The Judge then said…“well, it says right here... I suggest you go home and quit causing trouble for this other lady. ADJOURNED!”
Here’s what bothers me more than anything about the Chris Christie story. Most of our leaders are baby boomer age, and in the 70′s and 80′s when we were young there were many books and seminars on how to act in management. Yes, there are different styles of leadership, but there are rules. Deep down we know what is right, and should be able to spot a fake. For some reason one side thinks Christie is a great leader and another side sees a low-life with a small I.Q.
We’re not supposed to relish when someone else gets his comeuppance.
Do you love Chris Christie? We know why Republican leaders praise him, but why are some Democrats enamored with him.
Have you been thrown under the bus?
Tell me where I’m wrong.
Excerpt- “After Jesus was born, Wise Men came to look for Him, probably from an area which is now in either Iraq, Iran, Saudi Arabia or the Yemen…
…They were definitely men of learning. The word Magi comes from the greek word ‘magos’ where the english word ‘magic’ comes from. (something else that must drive Evangelicals crazy!) …
….Today we’d called them astrologers. Back then astronomy and astrology were part of the same overall studies (and ‘science’) and went hand in hand with each other. The magi would have followed the patterns of the stars religiously. …
…There was a ‘triple conjunction’ of Jupiter and Saturn in Pisces in 7BC (-6). First in May, looking East from Persia/Babylon; then in September/October, looking West over Jerusalem/Bethlehem from Persia/Babylon; and finally in December, looking South directly over Bethlehem if you were in Jerusalem! There’s also records in ancient writings from Babylon that the Magi, of that time, knew about the triple conjunction. - http://www.whychristmas.com/customs/star-of-bethlehem.shtml
I am certainly glad we do not live in the 1700′s or before, when you would be burned at the stake for any original thinking at all.
However, this is in reality wishful thinking because just recently—-
…At the end of last week, a 20-year-old woman, Kepara Leniata, was doused in gasoline and burned at the stake for witchcraft in Papua New Guinea. Her persecution and murder was apparently initiated by the relatives of a six-year-old boy who had died… - Read More - reported by Abby Huntsman (Huff Post Video): http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/barbara-wade-rose/papua-new-guinea-witchcraft-burned-stake_b_2688403.html
Don’t forget the recent case of Pakistani schoolgirl Malala Yousufzai. The Taliban shot her because she wanted to attend school; because of their ignorance she was accused of practicing sorcery.
And, recently I’ve been wondering if “some” would like to go back to medieval modes of thought even in America. (no birth control pills?…yea, sure.)
What to do…What to do...so many unanswered questions.
What do I think? Most of the time I insist on not putting God in a box…supporting science and religion to be different sides of the same coin…but at Christmas-time..well…it brings out the “blind faith” in me.
What about you? Do you place your faith in something bigger than we are? Is it unshakable?
BOY, …it wasn’t no time, until….
I can only think my parent’s story is not uncommon. My Dad was not a “saver,” nor did he know anything about the stock market. He raised his three daughters on a Post Office pension. His Social Security check was needed to make ends meet, but my family had what we needed. They had put away a small chunk of change for each of us three girls for after they had gone.
In the 2010 Movie EVERY DAY Brian Dennehy plays Helen Hunt’s aging father in these same circumstances. The movie haunted me for days. The pressure on this family gets so heavy, the husband (Schreiber) starts to wonder toward a sexy co-worker leaving his wife (Hunt) to cope on her own. This script nailed so many issues that affect us all (or…to clarify…those of us not in the top economic 2%.)
What my family found out, to make a long story short was the care center was going to get it all, and there wouldn’t be enough at that!
Come to find out there is something called a “spend down,” where when all the money is gone, the Government steps in and my parents, thank God, would not be thrown into the street. (I’d vote for MEDICAID Expansion if I were you.)
The stress on my Dad during the days of my sister taking over the overseeing of their finances was horrific. He just couldn’t believe after all he had done to safeguard my mother, it looked like he was going to fail her. It was truly awful to see such a wonderful, kind man be devastated.
We were very fortunate. My parents had been long-standing active in their church, and their religious denomination own several long term care facilities. There just so happened to be two rooms available. These homes are funded by benevolent funds, and my parents were safe.
But what of yours?
What of us?
Do you believe safety nets are the dreaded Socialism Word? Is Social Security “Socialism” and should we do away with it? Do you believe Food Stamps are only for the lazy? According to some Congressmen we all should be able to be successful entrepreneurs. Do you have $8,000 per month tucked away for Skilled Nursing? Or… are you going to look for a tallll bridge?
What are your plans?
Walt Kelly first used the quote “We Have Met The Enemy and He Is Us” on a poster for Earth Day in 1970. In 1972, it was the title of a book, Pogo: We Have Met the Enemy and He Is Us. http://www.igopogo.com/we_have_met.htm
What better time to live life to the fullest when we can truly, and freely engage in the fight between Good and Evil.
I thought of the moral majority in 1930′s-40′s Germany when 70% of church-goers stood by in silence as their neighbors and friends were dragged away…
…when our Congressmen stood by silently, I watched in horror as the Tea Party Hero shut us down in front of the whole World.
$24B lost by Conservatives who are supposed to be watching our pennies…
I want to take a minute and share what I learned in my Home Bible Studies with Liberty

An early class test question was put to us as follows:
What 3 “Institutions” were given to Man, by God, as “Gifts?” Yes, gifts.
Answer: Marriage in Genesis with Adam
Self-Government in Genesis after Noah
The Church in the NT
Government? You Say?
Government?…a gift from God? But I thought we hated government. I thought they were the enemy?
Government is a reflection of who we are as a people.
These are the people who are supposed to be the very best among us.
The smartest, the most kind, the ones to protect us, and encourage us, love and guide us….
So….Mirror,…now you have a good idea of what we look like.
Vain, Arrogant, Smug, Hateful, Condescending, Condemning, Self Righteous Credit to Wikipedia for Mirror Images
but, more leaders voted to pay our bills, save the Country and the World economy. They voted at their own peril, knowing they would be attacked for doing the right thing.
We tried to kill the Government…and the Government is US!
It reminds me of that scene in The Hunt for Red October (Tom Clancy) when the Russian Sub (bad guys) torpedoes the American Sub (good guys) but the Americans
do some fancy strategic maneuvers, and the missile turns back upon themselves, the Russian Sub. Kaboom!
Russian Captain 2nd Rank speaking to the Captain 1st Rank:
“You’ve Killed Us! You @$$!”
I spent all morning on Twitter thanking the Republicans who put Country before Party.
Oh, worth noting, ONCE AGAIN… WOMEN in the Senate and Congress had to do the heavy lifting, forcing the men to put this deal together.
Today’s Shout Out is to Barbara Hale (78). Without women like Barbara Hale, today’s women could not stand.
Watched a Perry Mason-aThon last week-end and what a gal, what a harbinger.
Bless you Barbara, and thank you for leading by example.
But I digress…
In 1991, a woman named Wanda Holloway plotted to kill a Texas cheerleader’s mother so her daughter could win a spot on the school squad -

HOW LARGE IS YOUR EATING-OUT BILL?
WHAT DO YOU THINK? FAST-FOOD = DIABETES = HEALTH CARE FIASCO?
The Affordable Care Act (ACA.gov) website if finally working. It’s a big step, but I dunno...it seems to me it would be better to have health insurance than not. At least check it out. I maneuvered around the the site and noticed they are partnering with H&R Block, and the people at H&R Block can help decide what the best plan of attack is and help their customers. Just sayin…
What about you? Are you a gambler? Not me…I’ve got my pantry stocked for the Zombie Apocalypse.
One of the first web-sites I designed was GoBagMeals.com. It’s still a great idea, but there are several websites out there for “preparedness.”
I made up the menu (not easy ’cause it has to fit into a tote,)… shopped for the lowest costs, and shipping,…and was rather proud of the result.
If you didn’t have the time, I would do the shopping and packing and shipping it to you…for you.
Three (3) meals per day, for three (3) days, for one adult and 2 children, or for two adults.
Mine is by the door...(my husband is a nay sayer). I’ll end up having to say “I told ya so..”
But he is big and strong and will end up saving me anyway…
I am a writer. I love stories. When someone who is a genius (Jesus) has to explain something to a pea-brain (us) He had to speak in Stories,…something we can grasp. At least “some” of us. Some do not hear His voice. *Note to self – hope I’m not ego-deaf*
In the Parable of the 10 Virgins – Matt 25:1-13
Five (5) Virgins were wise and took oil for their lamps. Five (5) Virgins were foolish and unprepared. The last verse v13 states “Watch Out! for you don’t know what dayeth the shit hits the fan!”
Sorry, Lord, don’t want to be blasphemous, but this current generation is lazy and spoiled, whether we are Rich OR Poor.
The point is this, I’m talking to mostly women…pack a to-go bag for each of you. Have a plan. Check out a few of my old links and copy the menu, grab an idea or two. Sleep easier…and sign up for health care.
Cause believe you me, no one is going to take care of you, but YOU! Check out the easy-breezy healthcare options here: https://www.healthcare.gov/
Your opportunity to get covered. Again, no one will take care of your family, but you. I worked for a church for 10 years, and although the “storehouse was full,” (tithe monies in CDs)…they had no idea who needed what in the neighborhood. It was only a social gathering. Sorry.
THE LADY WITH THE LAMP
A phrase in a report in The Times: She is a ‘ministering angel’ without any exaggeration in these hospitals, and as her slender form glides quietly along each corridor, every poor fellow’s face softens with gratitude at the sight of her. When all the medical officers have retired for the night and silence and darkness have settled down upon those miles of prostrate sick, she may be observed alone, with a little lamp in her hand, making her solitary rounds.
Nightingale was a prodigious and versatile writer.
In these days of not knowing what is going to happen next, question who to trust, and just waiting for the next shoe to fall:
Pack your Go-Bag and stock your pantry;
Let your light shine into the darkness, anyway you can.
What do you think? Do you give people the benefit of the doubt…or…are you ready to pounce. Hospitals are making a fortune on your stress.
My sister would not have the care she needs without government assistance.
Is healthcare we can afford such a bad idea?
Florence Nightingale didn’t seem to think so.
How about you?
What kind of women are we?
Medusa was a beautiful woman serving in Athena’s court. Her beauty drew the unwanted attention of Poseidon who raped her. Medusa fled to Athena for help, but jealous Athena punishes Medusa for the crime she was not at fault for, siding with the man in power.
POV: Many women do not support other women. Must of us have felt the knife from a “sister” at some time. I have to tell ya… tomorrow’s women will not have the freedoms women fought for, unless…we unite. States are stripping women of their independence at every turn. (not about abortion) It may even be a spiritual battle of some kind. Men’s motives are not yet clear, and the head of the snake is not visible using lower Governors as their pawn. …. What is it? What have women done to deserve such shabby treatment?
The BACKLASH has began…many are doing their best (Madeline Stowe was in Virginia)… Moral Mondays in Virginia and a fight in South Carolina, and the WAR in Texas, but it is going to take us ALL, in all all 50 States, both Blue and Red.
This fight is not about morals, nor about individual belief systems. It’s about nothing less than survival for our little girls.
We all need a reminder, take a short refresher look… Rent Movie THE CRIMSON PETAL AND THE WHITE, Novel by Michel Faber. The title is from an 1847 poem by Alfred Lord Tennyson entitled “Now Sleeps the Crimson Petal“.
The Protagonist throws herself down a staircase to abort in order to stop the Man of the House from throwing her out into the streets to starve, because he’s gotten her pregnant. She breaks her ankle on the stairs, but still needs to lie upside down on her back in agony to complete the abortion. The Glenn Beck and the entire Religious Conservative Right Political Agenda want to take away birth control pills. What are they thinking? (Can you imagine how many billions $ could be made on the Black Market?)
Conversation with Dealer: “Hey, man…I need a little Marijuana, , and throw in a few birth controls pills.”
Why does the Religious Right strive to be holy…for God’s benefit or for their own? What about that bit about our righteousness being only as rags? (I believe it was the Apostle Paul’s comment) Isn’t that why we are told not to judge?
WHAT DO YOU THINK? What kind of future do we want for your daughter?
Hey, you there, yo, Corporations…I’d like to see your Birth Certificates, please.
A SHORT TRIP DOWN MEMORY LANE MAY BE IN ORDER...with Government Shutdowns and the possible default on our Country’s obligations is threatened…
…here we go…

Economic Growth is again standing still because of “depression” and a lack of hope.
SPEAKING OF “DEPRESSION”……
And the great owners, who must lose their land in an upheaval, the great owners with access to history, with eyes to read history and to know the great fact: when property accumulates in too few hands it is taken away. And that companion fact: when a majority of the people are hungry and cold they will take by force what they need. And the little screaming fact that sounds through all history: repression works only to strengthen and knit the repressed. — The Grapes of Wrath 
2013 is another good time to be a writer…or a bank-robber
Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men is another important novel about a journey during the Great Depression. Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird is set during the Great Depression. Margaret Atwood’s Booker prize-winning The Blind Assassin is set in the Great Depression, centering on a privileged socialite’s love affair with a Marxist revolutionary. The era spurred the resurgence of social realism, practiced by many who started their writing careers on relief programs, especially the Federal Writers’ Project in the U.S.
Comparisons between the late-2000s recession and the Great Depression Both currencies in 1929 and 2008 were the US dollar, but in an analogous way it is as if one was a Saber-toothed tiger and the other is a Bengal tiger; they are two completely different animals.
THEY ARE TWO COMPLETELY DIFFERENT ANIMALS
Where we have experienced inflation since the Crash of 2008, the situation was much different in the 1930s when deflation set in. Unlike the deflation of the early 1930s, the US economy currently appears to be in a “liquidity trap,” or a situation where monetary policy is unable to stimulate an economy back to health.
2007 and 2008 eventually saw the world reach new levels of wealth gap inequality that rivaled the years of 1928 and 1929.
Yes, What happened to the Money???
Wikipedia – Koch Brothers
Whoo, Whoo, they really got rich in the last few years! Why are they trying to cause so much harm? It doesn’t make any sense.
What do you have your foundation planted on?
I hope, not money.
Man, this artist rendition really DOES look like the real Pisa Bell Tower, doesn’t it.
But Peter said unto him, “Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money.” Acts 8:20
CAN YOU SPOT A SOCIOPATH?
#1) Sociopaths are charming. Sociopaths have high charisma and tend to attract a following. They have a “glow” about them that attracts people who typically seek guidance or direction.
#2) Sociopaths are more spontaneous and intense than other people. They tend to do bizarre, sometimes erratic things that most regular people wouldn’t do. They are unbound by normal social contracts. Their behavior often seems irrational or extremely risky.
#3) Sociopaths are incapable of feeling shame, guilt or remorse. Their brains simply lack the circuitry to process such emotions. This allows them to betray people, threaten people or harm people without giving it a second thought. They pursue any action that serves their own self interest even if it seriously harms others. This is why you will find many very “successful” sociopaths in high levels of government, in any nation.
#4) Sociopaths invent outrageous lies about their experiences. They wildly exaggerate things to the point of absurdity, but when they describe it to you in a storytelling format, for some reason it sounds believable at the time.
#5) Sociopaths seek to dominate others and “win” at all costs. They hate to lose any argument or fight and will viciously defend their web of lies, even to the point of logical absurdity.
#6) Sociopaths tend to be highly intelligent, but they use their brainpower to deceive others rather than empower them. Their high IQs often makes them dangerous.
#7) Sociopaths are incapable of love and are entirely self-serving. They may feign love or compassion in order to get what they want, but they don’t actually FEEL love in the way that you or I do.
#8) Sociopaths speak poetically. They are master wordsmiths, able to deliver a running “stream of consciousness” monologue that is both intriguing and hypnotic.
#9) Sociopaths never apologize. They are never wrong. They never feel guilt. They can never apologize. Even if shown proof that they were wrong, they will refuse to apologize and instead go on the attack.
#10) Sociopaths are delusional and literally believe that what they say becomes truth merely because they say it! Excerpt from: http://www.naturalnews.com/036112_sociopaths_cults_influence.html

WE RENEWED OUR VOWS TODAY…
“How many roads must a man walk down
Before they call him a man?”
Peter, Paul and Mary sang at the 1963 Freedom March on D.C., 50 years ago today.
Mary Travers has passed over, but Peter Yarrow at 75 and, Noel Paul Stookey at 76, sang for us at the Lincoln Memorial today, with Trayvon Martin’s parents at their side, singing, too.
I sang, too.
How many of us still recall those days when we were not
judgmental. We screamed out loud against wrong wars, the need for jobs, racial prejudice, we wore flowers in our hair, and even took loving our neighbor, a little too far…*ahem.*
And now, today 2013, the answer is, STILL,
blowin in the wind.
I would have liked to see a few White clergy faces…especially from Alabama, N.& S. Carolina, Virginia, Florida, the Southern Baptist Belt.
How odd none of the big name White Clergy were there.
All I can say is woe unto them, I’m heaping coals on their heads. I heaped coals on the head of Donald Trump and he is in trouble with the discovery of his fake University, that lined his pockets with millions,…AND, I heaped coals on Governor Ultrasound Bob McDonnell, and the next day the scandal broke of him taking pricey gifts from Party Donors.*it’s all good, these things must come to light.*
American ships in New England waters flew a “Liberty Tree” flag in 1775. It shows a green pine tree on a white background, with the words,
“An Appeal to Heaven.”
When you hear the sound of the bell, Let Freedom Ring, In Libya, Syria, Florida…Texas…
Egypt is Rioting because they have no JOBS.
Haven’t you ever wondered why they don’t leave at 7:00am and go to a job, and come
home at 5:00pm, and then bring in a paycheck for their homes, food, health, fun things,…a good life? Even Writers have hours.
Like we have been able to do here in America? Up until now, anyway.
Take a look at Egyptian women without jobs to go to... we are getting a first-hand look…front row seat...of what it looks like for a country to have no jobs, all the money at the top held by a few special interests groups.
NOW… What does all this have to do with keeping your eye on the ball?

How much energy was wasted on the Birther Issue. Why didn’t we “trust God” that He knows what He is doing…HE appoints “Kings” is what the Liberty University Seminary test question taught.
We could have solved a whole lot of problems with that energy spent calling names, boy it has gotten ugly. Waste of Time.
Do our Shepherds really think they know better? *note to self*…Ministers know better than God. *wink wink* They could be rebuking bad Christian behavior from behind the Pulpit, but they do not..but that’s another blog.
How much energy was wasted over finding blame for Benghazi? No one has been prosecuted over the Twin Towers or Iraq. Thousands of lives, and billions of dollars. Placing blame? Waste of Time.
How much energy is being wasted over the War On Women?
O.K. Putting away the enough blame to go around to bed, let’s start with square one. Who is putting us to work for minimum wage?
Minimum Wage was supposed to be for “students!” Not…adults.
How can a person go out and buy a $50K car, or $250K house on a minimum wage
job? AND somebody is fighting even a decent minimum wage.
A $35K house doesn’t exist anymore, do you want to live in the ghetto and drive a old beat-up golf cart?
How much energy is being wasted Suppressing the Vote…Oh…only in
Is this what you want?
Is this what you think is right?
Evangelical Conservative States and Voters support the new Picture Voter ID…and THEY are the ones teaching about the upcoming MARK! *there’s an Irony for ya*
Your mandatory Picture Voter ID Card a precursor to:
Evangelicals teach we will need the “Mark”:
First: To Vote (NOW in effect in some States)
Second: To buy groceries. Have you noticed all the name brands are disappearing, with only the one Great Value Wal-Mart brand? (I refuse to shop there.)
Third: To get Gasoline (Big Oil) Big Oil is blocking new renewable energy.
Fourth: To Work for less — Replacing Social Security - I wouldn’t count on learning how to trade on the Stock Market if I were you. The Big Dogs won’t lose their money, but you will.
Fifth: To Worship (American Sharia Law = Far Right) Yes, it hurts me to say it, but…think about it. Who are the ones removing freedoms in the name of self-righteousness. The Haters of everybody else…
Sixth – To Communicate — No Land Lines? Only ONE telephone provider? They are gobbling each other up right and left. How about needing one of those Voter ID’s to buy a cell phone...

Could women take the White House and begin to straighten out this mess? I think they could. We will control our own bodies, regardless of the laws they pass against us. Wasting Their Time. We will stand in line 2 days, if we must, to vote out those trying to hurt us. We will stand our ground against abuse….

WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND AMERICA…
There is a Scripture going around, many ministers just LOVE to quote recently:
(Jehovah appears to Solomon) -- ...If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. II Chronicles 7:14
My questions is this — do you actually believe God will heal our land with the Congress we have now?
We stole the land from the Red man, and had to pass a law for White men NOT to drive over to the Reservation, and rape Indian women. Yes, that was VAWA (The Violence Against Women Act)…we barely got it through the House of Representative, recently. We still think the Black man should serve the White man.
And we haven’t treated the Yellow man very well either…and now everything we buy is made in China, how stupid is stupid?
I review several Ministry Blogs (to keep up…since I’m supposed to be one of them)…and today, the blog title was as follows:
“8 Ways Good Leaders Are Great Followers…As leaders, it’s equally important for us to know how to follow as it is how to lead. In fact, many believe to be a good leader, you must first be a great follower, and continue to follow well as you continue to lead well.”…
Are they kidding?
The other article shouted:
“Can America be saved? (Charisma Magazine) No..because it would have to start with the Clergy, and they are way too busy pretending to be the moral compass for others.
IF LOVE FOR OUR NEIGHBOR IS OUR CREED, WHY ARE WE SHOOTING THEM?
WHAT DO YOU THINK?

Can you imagine all the infidelities of Corporate America? Wall Street Moguls, and we mustn’t forget the Catholic Priests and Protestant Ministers with their secretaries…
DO MEN IN LEADERSHIP HAVE THE GALL (IMPUDENCE) TO JUDGE US? PASS LAWS AGAINST US? Where are these men’s wives? Do wives get soooo comfortable with wealth and privilege they certainly aren’t going to rock the boat.

In What’s the Matter with White People? Joan Walsh argues that the biggest divide in America today is based not on party or ideology but on two competing explanations for why middle-class stability has been shaken since the 1970s. One side sees an America that has spent the last forty years bankrupting the country by providing benefits for the underachieving, the immoral, and the undeserving—no matter the cost to the majority of Americans. The other side sees an America that has spent the last forty years catering to the wealthy while allowing only a nominal measure of progress for the downtrodden. http://www.salon.com/writer/joan_walsh/

WHAT DO YOU THINK? HAS SOMETHING HAPPENED IN YOUR OWN FAMILY TO CHANGE YOUR HEART?
GOD PROTECTS POOR WOMEN
THE BOOK OF RUTH – God established a law through Moses called the law of gleaning. When a man harvested his field he was to allow the four corners to remain unharvested so that the poor, the widows and the strangers (immigrants) could glean in the field (Leviticus 19:9,10) As a poor stranger (someone who had come from another land), Ruth went out, according to the law and custom to glean in the field. – Lay It On Me Perry Stone, Jr. VOE 1998
Now, I don’t know, but it sounds like to me SOMEONE is trying to do away with helping the poor. NO MEALS-ON-WHEELS?
This should really inflame Catholics, as this has always been their mission. As a church secretary in a Protestant church for 10 years, we never helped the poor…I guess I shouldn’t say “never.” They made up a few food baskets at Christmas…as long as it didn’t cost too much, and occasionally there would be a package for the military. But overall, indigents were not welcome. I wouldn’t just leave it up all to the Elders and Pastors, if I were you.

Can a man hate a Black man in the White House so much to lose himself completely? Falsies all lover the place…
I’ve read a few of his books, and looked up to him…to be first disappointed, made excuses for him, then finally threw in the towel and became appalled.
I wonder what Mr. Trump’s wives would say about his “bad points?” Probably had to sign something…promising not to talk…. How many conquests? How many broken hearts? How many unconfessed abortions he may not even have known about? Yes, this IS how it happens.

ANOTHER BLOT ON CHRISTIANITY….
By Chris Moody, Yahoo! News:
The Ticket American taxpayers are paying for a “war on Christianity” at home and abroad, Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul said during a speech at a conservative conference Thursday. “There is a war on Christianity,” Paul told an audience of mostly evangelical Christians and Jews during a luncheon at the annual Faith…
You hoo… Rand…There is no war on Christianity. Only Christians acting badly.
Like you, who doesn’t think unemployment checks should go out at Christmas time to those lousy lazy people…why don’t you just ask why they don’t work in the salt mines???? (I wouldn’t stay in the same room with this guy!)
Two Conservative upcoming Republican Conferences being held in Vegas?? Gambling and Prostitution City??? *blinks heavily* — A Woman’s Conference, and Freedom Fest with high level Republicans spending more time on the Birther issue. I hear Mike Huckabee will be at the Palazzo; Liberty University at the Desert Rose; Scott Walker at the Bellagio, ….just kidding. *I’m bad*
Good heavens, Obama’s going to be out of office soon, GET OVER IT. However, Rand Paul (Rand???) might be right, in some ways,because:
There IS a War-On-Christians … a war by fellow Christians sick of bad representation of the Gospel.

The following excerpt was given by Fr. John Hemer, Biblical Scholar and Theologian of the Mill Hill Missionary Institute at the Church of Our Lady of Mount Carmel & St. George, Enfield, England in April and May 2003.
I can dig it:
There are perhaps few clearer illustrations in the NT of how the scapegoat mechanism works than the lynching of the adulterous woman in John 8. Of course we wonder where the man is, probably in the crowd since when a group of people starts to behave as a mob all distinctions between righteous and sinner disappear. When someone is made a scapegoat the equation is always unanimity minus one. What unites the crowd is not really mutual interest or concern, although that may be the impression given, but their fury, which must find a victim. Note that the woman here is guilty – Jesus does not approve of that, he tells her to sin no more. But God is always on the side of the victim, and in a situation such as this the moral status of the victim is immaterial. The mob assume that God is on their side, and that their violence is good violence. Jesus, rather than attacking this idea head on, simply defuses it, breaks the spell and robs the impending violence of its sacred aura. — Had the mob achieved their aim and stoned the woman, they would have gone away with a peace having descended upon them. Peace thus achieved is the peace that the world gives. The whole of biblical revelation has been trying to wean people off this kind of peace born out of violence. Small wonder then that as part of his farewell discourse Jesus says: Peace I bequeath to you, my own peace I give you, a peace which the world cannot give, this is my gift to you. (John 14:27)
WHAT DO YOU THINK? I always wondered how the Jews just let what
happened in Germany…happen…without rising up without a fight…at least die with a stick in your hand….
Now, I know. Denial.
What do you think?
Fooling around with our DNA?
IT WASN’T HOMOSEXUALITY THAT CAUSED SODOM AND GOMORRAH TO BURN, IT WAS BECAUSE THERE WAS NO, NOT ONE RIGHTEOUS TO BE FOUND, plus the Nuclear meltdown.
WHERE WERE THE CLERGY? WHERE WERE THE SELF-RIGHTEOUS?
Guess there weren’t any….and how about those daughters….
Men have been handing women over to sacrifice for all kinds of reasons…since the beginning of the written Word.
“And the man said, The woman whom Thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.” Gen. 3:12
Could the “homosexual angle” been used over the centuries, by the Church, to excuse all the rest of us? There is that bit in the OT about the Scapegoat, and the red ribbon around it’s neck.
And then in the NT the Scapegoat the people picked, they crucified.
Could homosexuality be at our door because of something in the water?
What is the scientific explanation?
Scientists and and Physicians …are strangely silent.
Only the Clergy are sure....Abortion and Homosexuality are bringing about the end of the world (just those two things?)… it couldn’t be that we have stopped loving one another, or maybe it is because ministers can now write-off all their expenses….no longer do they have to.…lay down their possessions to follow Him.
Are you an expert? A Professional who knows about this?
What do you think?
WHERE ARE THE VOICES OF THE REAL NRA MEMBERS?
WOW! Who occupies all those offices?
Are there any women there? Wouldn’t it be a GOOD idea for NRA members to remove Lapierre, and replace him with a woman… who happens to care about gun violence victims? Someone, ANYONE…to reach out to those who are hurting.
Boy, that would really make the news. The whole country, NRA members included (the sane ones, anyway), could say…maybe we are getting somewhere.
Am I crazy to think that not one single NRA member could look at a Sandy Hook Parent and ask…what can we do for YOU??
Here is how you know someone is in the wrong.
They won’t budge. They won’t for one single solitary second think that they might be in error, even if just a bit.
My husband and I had a conversation about the difference between “Compromise” and “Common Ground” the other day.
Common Ground are things both enjoy, i.e. hiking, swimming, shooting, discussing certain topics, children, eating great meals, you get the idea...
Compromise is something different. Compromise is giving up something you really don’t want to, because you DO want to solve a problem. You want to make peace. You want to show love… Yes, Dear, I will do that Dear, not because I want to (or because I think you might be right),… but because I love you, and *grudgingly* respect your opinion, too.
No….I don’t believe in Compromise.
It’s my way or the highway…or for the people he is speaking for…whoever they are? Who IS his boss, anyway?
I took my conceal and carry class. I have my Ruger .38 Special double-action revolver in a nifty case disguised as a secretary’s day-timer. I can use it if I have to. I will use it if I have to. But I don’t want to.
We always will have Weapons. We take turns having the best ones. The Chinese invented the Cannons. In the 1400′s there is testimony that “they had never seen anything like it!” The question is not if we have the right to use them, but..SHOULD WE USE THEM?
WHAT DO YOU THINK?
IS IT ABOUT RIGHTS?
Or, something more complicated….
Of the 12,996 murdervictims in 2010, (stat I could find) of which data was received, 37.5% female victims are murdered by their husbands or boyfriends.
Women may need to look at this law and see if we can use it to OUR benefit when faced with abuse.
“But Ossifer, (I mean Officer)…I was only defending myself. I was afraid for my life.” *whew, and now I’m rid that that SOB*

John Charles Hagee is an American founder and senior pastor of Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, Texas, a non-denominational megachurch with more than 20,000 active members. Wikipedia
I have read his books and once upon a time, I admired him…..until, one Sunday morning listening to his TV Show….he made this comment …“women who have abortions consider those fetuses, a blob.” I did not take this out of context, or mis-hear, my husband heard it, too. We looked at each other in disbelief.
As a women who had an unfortunate experience…in 1971…when perhaps I made a wrong decision….my heart sunk, once again…as I listened to that fat toad.
Women who have had abortions live with hurts just under the surface. We do our best to push regrets back in our minds to put hurtful things behind us, so we can live our lives like everyone else…until someone who doesn’t have a clue…or any compassion…opens his/her big ugly fat mouth.
I’m not going to say anything more about this at this time…maybe later, as rape and abortion and birth control are in the news 24/7…but the day is coming when women will settle this score. There is a storm brewing, simmering on the pot getting ready to blow. (Even Nostradamus says so) http://www.godswatcher.com/quatrains.htm
Michel de Nostredame, usually Latinized as Nostradamus, was a French apothecary and reputed seer who published collections of prophecies that have since become famous worldwide. Wikipedia

Over 90% of all content we receive via TV, Net, Radio, etc. is filtered by “Male” perspective. (MHP 6/1/13).
In the middle of getting kids off to school, getting to work, making sure there is food in the frig, laundry that doesn’t stink…you may have missed that ALL-MALE panel passing laws for government controlled vaginal probes on the News. It makes me want to rent GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATOO and watch the scene where after being raped, the Protagonist does some “probing” of her own.
Don’t think men won’t stoop to a rapist mentality. The words legitimate rape can be said with a straight face.
Look at some other countries…countries without laws or GOOD Government protecting women.

Wouldn’t it be creepy if the most wanted Terrorists are the ones in Congress? OR…even our Generals? (yeeek, glad we’re not in Egypt.)
We won’t know if President Obama is the Terrorist he is accused of until he is long out of office and we are looking back.
HOW WILL HISTORY READ?
He saved us from a Depression…everybody says so, even Wall Street;
He saved the Auto Industry…everybody knows so, even House of Representatives;
He protected everybody’s rights, not just yours;
He gave his Christian testimony at many annual Prayer Breakfasts’, even his enemies know he’s not of the Muslim faith; He provided his “papers” and I cried that day, to think we as a people are so cruel.
He signed the Lilly Ledbetter Act for Fair Wages for Women (notice I didn’t say EQUAL wages, House of Reps wouldn’t allow that one.)

Does God bless a murderer? King David was one…so was the Apostle Paul.
So who are we to judge on Abortion, Gay, Adultery, Stealing, Coveting, Lust or Greed? He blesses Liars, too. President Bush lied. There were no WMD’s. The Bible says Liars won’t see the Kingdom. Looks like he might not make it, either.

When’s the last time you had a really good tomato? I mean REALLY good…the right color, the right texture, juicy? I’ve got to tell you, I thought it was just me, and my grocery store, but it seems like ALL the grocery stores have strange look-alike tomatoes. The ones from the Farmers Market are so expensive, and even they are tasteless.
LAODICEA, ARE YOU HERE?
He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the “churches”
WHAT DO YOU THINK? ARE THERE ANY GOOD TOMATOES?
I’M NOT TALKING ABOUT FRUIT.
One Review on Novel by Nathaniel Hawthorne, published in 1850. It is considered a masterpiece of American literature and a classic moral study. The novel is set in a village in Puritan New England. The main character is Hester Prynne, a young woman who has borne an illegitimate child. Hester believes herself a widow, but her husband, Roger Chillingworth, returns to New England very much alive and conceals his identity. He finds his wife forced to wear the scarlet letter A on her dress as punishment for her adultery. Chillingworth becomes obsessed with finding the identity of his wife’s former lover. When he learns that the father of Hester’s child is Arthur Dimmesdale, a saintly young minister who is the leader of those exhorting her to name the child’s father, Chillingworth proceeds to torment the guilt-stricken young man. In the end Chillingworth is morally degraded by his monomaniacal pursuit of revenge; Dimmesdale is broken by his own sense of guilt, and he publicly confesses his adultery before dying in Hester’s arms. Only Hester can face the future bravely, as she plans to take her daughter Pearl to Europe to begin a new life. –The Merriam-Webster Encyclopedia of Literature –This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Unless you’ve lost faith in America all together. I haven’t. Not me. I think “most” of us think we do a pretty good job.
Many journalist believe he has done the right thing. Call me a fool, but I just can’t go there.
Sometimes, all you have is what your gut tells you. I got to tell ya…we have all been joking about who is listening in…knowing on some level the technology was there.
Perhaps the US of A does have big troubles ahead, but I for one, am going to continue to think the best, pray for the good leaders we have placed strategically, and I’m hopeful the bad ones will eventually have light shown upon them so they will go scurrying back into the shadows.
What do you think?
Would you go and tell another country of our weaknesses?
Air our dirty laundry around the world?

Was his motive a false one?
