IF you watch Nothing else, watch this. This IS coming...

This is a video in the end to sell a book. BUT, the scenerio he lays out is on the money. IF you are not ready for this, it will be too late when it comes. Your money will be no good. Everything is about to change.

How is it that is illegal to pay off companies for actions that they took on your behalf that benefit you, but its legal for Obama to do the same thing under the guise of government?
Tell me again what a triple-A rating is good for? Not a whole lot, if one of the iconic triple-As in American industry, General Electric, has to go hat in hand to the federal government for a $182.5 billion bailout.

The Government is my shepherd, I shall not fear...


When scientists and emergency response experts developed their "ARkStorm" meteorological model for the California coast, the point was to figure out a worst-case scenario for weather disaster planning, which would parallel the planning for a seismic "Big One" in the Golden State. They came up with a doozy, proposing that Pacific weather patterns could produce "atmospheric rivers" that dump rain onto the West Coast for 40 days and 40 nights. ("ARk" stands for "Atmospheric River 1000.")

Experts say such a hurricane-style storm occurred over a 45-day period in 1861-1862, causing severe flooding and turning the Sacramento Valley into an inland sea. Today, that kind of storm could cause $300 billion to $400 billion in damage. The video above paints an apocalyptic picture, made worse because "the public at large does not comprehend the extreme danger the storm poses."

Perhaps the greatest impact in my business career has been whom I chose to marry.
The House GOP has put on the table some spending cuts. I object. They should be TWICE this level and faster. The waste is huge. The list they propose is timid.
BUT it's a start. Chuck Comstock is tagged. What think ye?

The cuts include Amtrak subsidies and Obama’s healthcare plan.

Here's a voice the education corporatists and teacher unions need to heed. Bout time.
With Congress and the White House gearing up for a major battle over the future of education policy, Bill Cosby added his voice Wednesday to that of House Speaker John A. Boehner and others who want to give parents a bigger say in their children's education.

A discussion about Obama with a supporter, A nice woman, a Christian. I hope this helps

@ Gene: Beautiful pic of you and your wife. ♥
Thank you. She is

I am lost in your comment. What exactly are you talking about. Are you not a republican or are you not a teabagger?
I don't know if you know the derogatory nature or origin of that term. I don't receive it. I am NOT a teabagger. I am a member of the tea party, a conservative and in a soft way a Republican. Most pigeonhole efforts fail. I won't pigeonhole you if you won't do the same to me. If I were to say "you ____________ are all alike" you would object. As do I.

If you want to really understand my political bent, I am tea party with libertarian sensibilities. This interesting discussion between Ron Paul, Ralph Nader and Judge Napolitaono is much along the lines of my political economic philosophy. I am rabidly anti Corporatist.

I am hopping that you can give us the facts and not media opinion to my questions.
As we talk about this, I'm hoping you will be able to screen the same. I won't accept rehashed DNC, MSNBC, CNN, Huffpo, Daily Kos, operation push or Al Sharpton. You won't have to accept the same from me.

So, what exactly has been done in the past two years that is detrimental.

Financial reform?

Health care reform?

2 trillion dollar gains in corporate America? Stable stock market? From the brink of depression the recession has ended for corporate America? what?.....
the recession has ended for corporate America - Wait, what about you, your family, your kids, your parents. It hasn't ended for them? Stock Market, it's all a house of cards and is about to fall. I commend you to the Word of the Lord I brought in January.

We are on the BRINK OF DEPRESSION. The front not the back. Stable Stock Market...what's that mean to anyone other than a few very wealthy people? There are no jobs, business is in the tank, people can't buy houses or cars both of which I could use. I actually DON'T blame Obama for much of this. He did make it worse. Extending unemployment as long as he did. The buy a house tax credit. Tightening up the Mortgage rules too tight so no one can get a mortgage or refinance, CASH FOR CLUNKERS was a huge mistake. It sent money to Korea and Japan. Buying Out GM and supporting the unions was unthinkably ignorant. These are not clueless opinions. The are observations and YES I do have a deep background in economics.

The Two Trillion dollar gains in corporate America can be easily explained by QE1 and QE2. It's fiat money.

While I don't fault Obama with the situation, I DO fault him for making it worse.

The president lack experience? Deceived?
What experience did he have before. He's never had an executive position. He's never run a business. He's always worked in government or quasi government. AND his advisers that he brought in, particularly at the beginning were exactly like him. NONE of them had ever met a payroll or worked in the economy. All were academics or professional government workers. So they were easily deceived by theory without any understanding. That is the problem. He is getting smarter, but not fast enough. There are people in his life who are not good for the USA.

The president did not come into "office" he came into a CRISIS. The worst economic MESS this generation has seen and managed it extremely well in spite of right wing conservative GOP " Grand Old Party" opposition.
managed it extremely well?? On that we will disagree. I think he has bungled half the stuff he has tried to do. He's not very good at this. But read on.

Gene, this president is among the most regal, poised, intelligent, competent and for the people, presidents we have had in history. Now it's time to bring back what a bit?
NOW THAT is an opinion. Yours. I understand that. BUT, it is subjective and one I disagree with in part. Intelligent? Maybe, but I'm not convinced. Competent, sort of. Getting better but far from where he should be to hold this high office. Regal and Poised? He does that well. That doesn't make him a good president. It's like Jay said to Kay in Men in Black when he put on the suit and sunglasses, "You know the difference between you and me? I make this look GOOD". Lookin good don't make it good.

President Obama's handling of the Tucson situation is not something he learned 3 months ago.
His ability to make a good speech and stay out of the way has always been his long suit. Speaking of things he should have learned, his handling of the BP Oil spill was a pretty bad fumble. I think he did learn how not to fumble the ball then.

It is who the man is and who he has been all along which is why he was elected and consistently sought bipartisanship although he has been and is still rejected.
Obama's idea of bipartisanship is "I tell you what I want an you agree with me". Remember the health care summit? There were several good ideas presented, none of which saw the light of consideration. Remember the business round-table he had where the lady said, "I'm tired of defending you". Several good ideas were brought up and disregarded. Obama sees disagreement as obstructionism. I'm glad there is going to be an effort to reverse some of these damaging things he has done. I hope there will be success. If there isn't there will be a doubling down to get him out of office in 2012.

Republican propaganda paints him as an incompetent villain.
Not a villain. I reject that. Incompetent? Maybe in a Carteresque sort of way. Means well but really doesn't understand the situation.

What is "big government corporate status"? Did you mean "Big Business Corporate Status" because that is the GOP philosophy and who their constituents are; BIG BUSINESS; wealth.
You got this one really really wrong. Look at who big business contributes to. Most of the money in the last presidential election that came from the corporate power went to Obama. No strings? RIGHT.. I said that Obama was in the wrong pocket. Big Business and big money are controlling him. GE, Goldman Sachs, Merrill Lynch, Bank of Ameirca and George Soros Own Barack Obama. BIG GOVERNMENT CORPORATE STATISTS. They want to shape the government to serve their interests. Not the people. Same with the Big Medicine, Big Pharma, Big Unions. They have him in their pocket. They control him. He does their bidding. So by the way did Bush. If you look at the video with Nader, Paul and Napolitano you see that my objections parallel theirs. And the interventions. Stop already. GM and Chrysler should have gone bankrupt along with the institutions that BushObama cooked up.

The GOP and its constituents desire a small government ineffective government and big privatized business which are power houses of greed and control; such as the health insurance industry.
I wish what you say is true. THE GOP loves big government. So does the Democrat party. And Obama. Look at how he has expanded Government and Spending.

The revolution, Tea Party desires a small less intrusive government and private business with open competition so that the next Microsoft, facebook or google can emerge. Big Insurance exists because big government supports it. The Healthcare bill supports big insurance. EVERYONE WILL HAVE TO BUY INSURANCE. Why don't we mandate that everyone have Life Insurance? Everyone will die. Everyone will have final expenses. Why don't we mandate that every man in America be taught how to handle a gun and be required to carry one. It would protect against nuts like the shooter in Tuscon. Of course you would have to pass some kind of sanity test. AND if you want to see why you can't invest in Facebook today, it's because of government financial interference initiated by Obama and his big reform deal. Look it up. It's in today's Wall Street Journal. No he hasn't done that well. He means well but listens to his puppetmasters too much. The Gun this is of course hyperbole, but it illustrates the mandate insanity.

Our Government is of the people, by the people and for the people which the GOP is against instead supports and protects by any means necessary corporations and the wealthy. Their agenda is tax avoidance, privatizing and controlling the wealth of this nation at the expense/enslavement of the people.
I don't object if you want to pay more taxes or If you want to work for the government. Just don't object if I do my best NOT to do either. The rest of your comment bluntly is over the top. Who really wants to control the wealth that is left in this nation is the government and their corporate sponsors who currently are democrats but were republicans. The whole bunch is crooked. The corporatists and statists are our enemies. The quicker you get that clear the better you will be at understanding why there is so much that is not good in Obama's agenda. Once more I say, he's a decent sort. I think I would like him. But, he is not a great leader. I watched him with Hu from China. Like a whipped puppy. You could join us in trying to help him become a better President as happened with Clinton. He just might. I can hope. But right now...not so much.

Who is out to control you, me, everyone? What is behind all of this that isn't good that we need to see if you say President Obama is a good man?
Once more, he is controlled, directed, counseled and ordered to be and do by people who do not have the best interests of this country at heart. People who are part of a governmental kleptocracy. What can we steal from you? Soros is an evil man. He is very much in the background. What worries me is if Obama gets out of step with Soros, our president will be dead by Christmas, just like they did to Kennedy. He has powerful evil forces influencing him. We only have him to object to, but the controlling puppetmasters behind and beside him are doing him wrong. Many have stepped aside in disrepute. AND the pressure to take control of our nation by edicts, bureaucracies and unelected mandates from the EPA (Cap and Trade lite), Net Neutrality from the FCC essentially controlling the internet and free speech, the Food Safety Bill that was just passed that will hobble our food supply, the DOE restriction on drilling for Oil in the Gulf and other places where there is oil, support of Ethanol controlling him by ADM, The Card Check efforts by the Dept of Labor which will make too powerful unions more powerful. He is controlled by big government, big business, big money and big unions. He might be a good man, but he is a puppet.

For the record, I don't "adore" president Obama; in fact, I don’t know anyone who does. Myself and others have a great deal of respect for him coming into a disastrous office after bush and turning things around in two years. All of this while under a microscope and a litany of unfounded criticism. The man has done more in two years than any president preceding him has done in a full term. One must respect that!!!! Tomorrow...
I don't think he has turned around much. He has made his puppetmasters stronger, there are no jobs, China is pushing us around, real estate is in the tank and dropping while homelessness increases and now ever soup kitchens can't preach the Gospel when they feed the poor thanks to Obama. Look it up. Our debt is massive, more in the last two years than the previous 10. Not Bush debt. Obama. Businesses aren't expanding. States are failing like Illinois and California, Food and Fuel prices going straight up (gee funny we don't hear the left talk about high gas prices now and blaming Obama like the did Bush), and we look like a fool because of Obama in the eyes of the rest of the world. Name me some world leaders who think he is a strong capable president. All this in about two years. Excuse me if I don't bow in adoration.

Lastly, I don't love you any less. I believe you to be badly deceived buying into what the left wing media and the cultural race baiters preach. The Reverends. What you may not know is, I spend most of my time in the community. Mostly I'm one of only a very few white folks in the room. I was there last night on the South Side of Chicago. I will be there again tonight. I'm doing what the Reverends in this city aren't doing. Hands on we are going to see reformation and revival in this city. Deception defeated. If you came to our meeting tonight, you would be among very Christian conservative BLACK FOLKS who will agree with EVERYTHING I just said. That might mess up your paradigm. There will be over a hundred there tonight. This can't continue and the black community in Chicago suffers the MOST because of this deception you share.

We, they, all of us, want him to do well. BUT, he is underqualifed. Hoping he will become a better leader soon.

I remain believing blessing on you, even if you believe in Obama. I'll put my faith elsewhere.

Corporatists Control what you See and Hear

Here are the three most common ways that the "news" media makes information safe for Corporate America (the actual rulers of the country):

1. Ignore the story completely (a favorite)

2. Dillute daily TV news shows and newspapers with so much junk reporting there's no room for real stories (they've got to put something on the screen)

3. Allow blatant lies on the part of "officials" and bought and sold "experts" to stand without even rudimentary research and analysis (it cost too much, don't you know)

However, occasionaly a story gets away from them (think Gary Webb and his Dark Alliance reporting.)

Then somebody actually has to do some work - that work being the attempted destruction of the reputation and career of the news source (usually a lone reporter or a publisher that's not safely "in the loop.")

There's a revolving door between the "news" industry and the PR "professionals" who take on this kind of work.

Catherine Austin Fitts charitably calls them "attack poodles."

Palinoia, The Destroyer: What’s behind the left’s deranged hatred.

Professional jealousy and intellectual snobbery, however, only scratch the surface of the left’s bizarre attitude toward Palin. They explain the intensity of the disdain, but not the outright hatred–not why some people whose grasp of reality is sufficient to function in society made the insane inference that she was to blame for a madman’s attempt to murder Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.

This unhinged hatred of Palin comes mostly from women. . . . What about male Palin-hatred? It seems to us that it is of decidedly secondary importance. Liberal men put down Palin as a cheap way to score points with the women in their lives, or they use her as an outlet for more-general misogynistic impulses that would otherwise be socially unacceptable to express.

Women are always meanest to other women.

Your Destiny will either Double or Half based in large part on whom you marry

Your Marriage, Your Career

I have been thinking about some of the business advice I have given lately to clients and friends. One in particular sounds out of place. It doesn’t fit neatly in the “business” category but in my experience it has more to do with business than most any other nugget of help I have both given or received from someone. Perhaps the greatest impact in my business career has been whom I chose to marry.

Your best business move might be whom you marry

I cannot tell you how fortunately I am to have married well–”Way out of your league” as a friend once reminded me. This personal decision has had a greater impact in my business career than any other single choice. Being married to Gwen has allowed me to pursue my dreams to a degree I would never had done alone, and much less if I had married a lesser person. Marrying well will:

Provide encouragement to to pursue your dreams

Give you the confidence to move forward

Create a safe place you call home

Bring balance in an ever-demanding world

Love you for who you are, so you can be all you’re destined to be

But the opposite is also true when we choose poorly and find ourselves in a relationship that




and doubts.

Sadly, I’ve been around brilliant men and women who cannot pursue their God-given dreams because they live in the throws of relational chaos, trying to manage a difficult relationship while letting life’s opportunities slip away.

I hope you’re reading this and thanking God for your spouse. Perhaps you’re single and considering your options. For some, this post comes too late. Maybe some can make a case of being able to succeed in business despite their difficult marriages, but I can only imagine the extra amount of energy it would take to make that work. And how much more could they accomplish if they had a safe, encouraging place to call home?

How’s the most significant relationship in your life affect what you do?

Modern Pharisees, Organized Church, and the End Times

Big, shiny churches led by the self-anointed that preach to congregations of shiny, self-righteous people:
yes, those edifices may be state of the art but are they earthquake-proof? Do you worship the Holy, Triune, God or the position and the status that comes from being a part of an "it" church?

Do you do everything "right?" In that, do you overlook the plank in your own eye while criticizing the speck in your brother's eye? Do you routinely rebuke your brother while keeping your own sin hid away in a vault? After all, you wouldn't want to evidence any appearance of evil, right? Well, to be sure, God is able to see right through your vault's door!

The shaking has begun and I can't help but believe it will intensify before the trumpet blows. Before we are spared the wrath of the Tribulation, we may first have to endure some increasingly painful birth-pangs and unsettling tremors. Oh sure, we've been shaking and aching for a while now, but in my spirit I believe that the metaphorical pain is going to intensify because we are not learning our lessons well. We are here to represent, and in my spirit I believe there is too much misrepresentation taking place. In so many ways, we are slandering our Holy, Triune, God.

I was wrong about the "Storm" that I saw coming in the fall of 2010; but in my heart I believe I may only have been off on the timeline. Indeed, I am no prophet, but I do see and feel with a level of sensitivity that must be supernatural and like a tuning fork that sensitivity is humming...

The organized church will shake and tremble and more will be knocked out of their theater-style seating. There will be loss because so many are losing sight of Him. There are many who memorize their scriptures well and then twist them to their own advantage while using the Bible as a weapon against the lost and back-slidden and not as the book of truth, salvation, and love - His love!Love - where is the love? This writer is seeing more love shining from the "lost" than the "found." Additionally, so many of the found appear to be losing their humility while the lost are being frightened into it. This is not how it should be!

I fall short and I am not too prideful to admit it. I admit that I am weak without Jesus - weak, no wait...dead without Him! I want to love like He does! I want to be used by Him! I strive to be increasingly alive in Him! But, without following Him, my wretchedness will be malodorous and reeking.

The times may grow much harder before we who have accepted Jesus as our Lord and Savior - in true repentance - get to go home. And while the times grow more difficult, many are going to be shaken from their thrones of self-anointing. Many are going to have the doors ripped from their vaults of self-righteousness; and I am not only referring to pastors, prophets, and other anointed. I am also speaking of the common amongst us.

As conditions grown increasingly stormy, God will be looking for leaders. He is not looking for those who are shiny. He is looking for those who truly walk in His love and have the grit and toughness to lead.

Yes, He is looking for those that know that they are too broken and imperfect to lead without His leading.

Abortion Doctor Charged With Killing 7 Babies With Scissors

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A doctor who gave abortions to minorities, immigrants and poor women in a “house of horrors” clinic was charged with eight counts of murder in the deaths of a patient and seven babies who were born alive and then killed with scissors, prosecutors said Wednesday.

Dr. Kermit Gosnell, 69, made millions of dollars over 30 years, performing as many illegal, late-term abortions as he could, prosecutors said. State regulators ignored complaints about him and failed to inspect his clinic since 1993, but no charges were warranted against them given time limits and existing law, District Attorney Seth Williams said. Nine of Gosnell’s employees also were charged.

Gosnell “induced labor, forced the live birth of viable babies in the sixth, seventh, eighth month of pregnancy and then killed those babies by cutting into the back of the neck with scissors and severing their spinal cord,” Williams said.

Patients were subjected to squalid and barbaric conditions at Gosnell‘s Women’s Medical Society, where Gosnell performed dozens of abortions a day, prosecutors said. He mostly worked overnight hours after his untrained staff administered drugs to induce labor during the day, they said.

What REALLY happened when the Prime Minister of China came to visit. This is funny...sad

The birth pangs and the pain

Yesterday I published a look from a Seers perspective of what the future will look like in government. Today I saw this list of things already happening. I hope you will read what I wrote and what this list looks like. We are already there:

#1 The financial manager of the Detroit Public Schools, Robert Bobb, has submitted a proposal to close half of all the schools in the city. His plan envisions class sizes of up to 62 students in the remaining schools.

#2 Detroit Mayor Dave Bing wants to cut off 20 percent of the entire city from police and trash services in order to save money.

#3 Things are so tight in California that Governor Jerry Brown is requiring approximately 48,000 state workers to turn in their government-paid cell phones by June 1st.

#4 New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is proposing to completely eliminate 20 percent of state agencies.

#5 New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has closed 20 fire departments at night and is proposing layoffs in every single city agency.

#6 In the state of Illinois, lawmakers recently pushed through a 66 percent increase in the personal income tax rate.

#7 The town of Prichard, Alabama came up with a unique way to battle their budget woes recently. They simply stopped sending out pension checks to retired workers. Of course this is a violation of state law, but town officials insist that they just do not have the money.

#8 New Jersey Governor Chris Christie recently purposely skipped a scheduled 3.1 billion dollar payment to that state's pension system.

#9 The state of New Jersey is in such bad shape that they still are facing a $10 billion budget deficit for this year even after cutting a billion dollars from the education budget and laying off thousands of teachers.

#10 Due to a very serious budget shortfall, the city of Newark, New Jersey recently made very significant cuts to the police force. Subsequently, there has been a very substantial spike in the crime rate.

#11 The city of Camden, New Jersey is "the second most dangerous city in America", but because of a huge budget shortfall they recently felt forced to lay off half of the city police force.

#12 Philadelphia, Baltimore and Sacramento have all instituted "rolling brownouts" during which various city fire stations are shut down on a rotating basis.

#13 In Georgia, the county of Clayton recently eliminated its entire public bus system in order to save 8 million dollars.

#14 Oakland, California Police Chief Anthony Batts has announced that due to severe budget cuts there are a number of crimes that his department will simply not be able to respond to any longer. The crimes that the Oakland police will no longer be responding to include grand theft, burglary, car wrecks, identity theft and vandalism.

#15 In Connecticut, the governor is asking state legislators to approve the biggest tax increase that the state has seen in two decades.

#16 All across the United States, conditions at many state parks, recreation areas and historic sites are deplorable at best. Some states have backlogs of repair projects that are now over a billion dollars long. The following is a quote from a recent MSNBC article about these project backlogs....

More than a dozen states estimate that their backlogs are at least $100 million. Massachusetts and New York's are at least $1 billion. Hawaii officials called park conditions "deplorable" in a December report asking for $50 million per year for five years to tackle a $240 million backlog that covers parks, trails and harbors.

#17 The state of Arizona recently announced that it has decided to stop paying for many types of organ transplants for people enrolled in its Medicaid program.

#18 Not only that, but Arizona is do desperate for money that they have even sold off the state capitol building, the state supreme court building and the legislative chambers.

#19 All over the nation, asphalt roads are actually being ground up and are being replaced with gravel because it is cheaper to maintain. The state of South Dakota has transformed over 100 miles of asphalt road into gravel over the past year, and 38 out of the 83 counties in the state of Michigan have transformed at least some of their asphalt roads into gravel roads.

#20 The state of Illinois is such a financial disaster zone that it is hard to even describe. According to 60 Minutes, the state of Illinois is six months behind on their bill payments. 60 Minutes correspondent Steve Croft asked Illinois state Comptroller Dan Hynes how many people and organizations are waiting to be paid by the state, and this is how Hynes responded....

"It's fair to say that there are tens of thousands if not hundreds of thousands of people waiting to be paid by the state."

#21 The city of Chicago is in such dire straits financially that officials there are actually toying with the idea of setting up a city-owned casino as a way to raise cash.

#22 Michigan Governor Rick Snyder is desperately looking for ways to cut the budget and he says that "hundreds of jurisdictions" in his state could go bankrupt over the next few years.

Victor David Hansen gives an ECONOMICS lesson

And does it well, as would be expected:

Obama in 2011 has a rendezvous with $4 a gallon gas and $100 a barrel oil. For two years, the administration has shut down new leasing of fossil fuels in the West; curtailed them in and around the Gulf; pontificated about, but not acted much on, nuclear power; and more or less unleashed everyone from Van Jones to Steven Chu to talk up global warming and talk down finding a necessary window of security in new sources of oil, natural gas, coal, and nuclear power until technology and the market transition us to next-generation fuels.

The worldwide recession gave Obama two years of relatively cheap oil and gas, a breathing space which unfortunately he used to fantasize about wind and solar, rather than rush to create expanded sources of tried energy. That tab is coming due. “Drill, baby, drill” was not Sarah Palin’s mythmaking. We forget that what sunk the McCain campaign was the September 2008 meltdown that not only raised specters of a 1929 crash, but soon crashed oil prices as the world went into deeper recession — and gave Obama between 2009-10 relatively cheap gas at the pump and thus a buffer to his otherwise disastrous Keynesian policies.

How easily we forget that the stage was set for an incipient recovery in December 2008 … until Barack Obama and Congress began “stimulating,” thereby extending the recession and creating a virtually jobless post-recession period that doesn’t deserve the term “recovery.”

If you are an American, please watch this. If you are from any other country, it's probably already too late.

Taught like a healthcare expert by Mum at the
kitchen table. It not only makes sense it is also accurate. This should
be passed around to everyone to understand what Obama did and how
unnecessary it was. Repealing Obamacare is a must.

A House committee has asked the Homeland Security Department to provide documents about an agency policy that had required political appointees to review many Freedom of Information Act requests before releasing the material, according to a letter obtained Sunday by The Associated Press.

A great deal of talk has been going on, promises made, and plans designed to begin raining in the cost of the federal government. The best laid plans will not

Obama and his syllogistic argument du jour. This is just as nonsensical as what he did with GM and other companies before he took them over. Is this a portent of things to come, namely the takeover of the media by Obama thugs under the guise of a need for new regulation? Just a scary thought or a new syllogistic Obamanism.

Supply and demand. Obama ensures that America's
supplies are low, its dependency on foreign oil high and his
marxist/socialist and muslim buddies make out like bandits. The people
of the United States pay a premium in prices so that Obama can pay back
his friends.
