When I was a kid, adults used to bore me to tears with their tedious diatribes about how hard things were. When they were growing up; what with walking twenty-five miles to school every morning.... Uphill... Barefoot... BOTH ways...yadda, yadda, yadda
And I remember promising myself that when I grew up, there was no way I was going to lay a bunch of guilt like that on my kids about how hard I had it and how easy they've got it!
But now that I'm over the ripe old age of forty, I can't help but look around and notice the youth of today. You've got it so easy! I mean, compared to my childhood, you live in a damn Utopia! And I hate to say it, but you kids today, you don't know how good you've got it!
1) I mean, when I was a kid we didn't have the Internet. If we wanted to know something, we had to go to the damn library and look it up ourselves, in the card catalog!!
2) There was no email!! We had to actually write somebody a letter - with a pen! Then you had to walk all the way across the street and put it in the mailbox, and it would take like a week to get there! Stamps were 10 cents!
3) Child Protective Services didn't care if our parents beat us. As a matter of fact, the parents of all my friends also had permission to kick our butts! Nowhere was safe!
4) There were no MP3's or Napsters or iTunes! If you wanted to steal music, you had to hitchhike to the record store and shoplift it yourself!
5) Or you had to wait around all day to tape it off the radio, and the DJ would usually talk over the beginning and @#*% it all up! There were no CD players! We had tape decks in our car. We'd play our favorite tape and "eject" it when finished, and then the tape would come undone rendering it useless. Cause, hey, that's how we rolled, Baby! Dig?
6) We didn't have fancy Call Waiting! If you were on the phone and somebody else called, they got a busy signal, that's it!
7) There weren't any cell phones either. If you left the house, you just didn't make a call or receive one. You actually had to be out of touch with your "friends". OH MY GOSH !!! Think of the horror... not being in touch with someone 24/7!!! And then there's TEXTING. Yeah, right. Please! You kids have no idea how annoying you are.
8) And we didn't have fancy Caller ID either! When the phone rang, you had no idea who it was! It could be your school, your parents, your boss, your bookie, your drug dealer, the collection agent... you just didn't know!!! You had to pick it up and take your chances, mister!
9) We didn't have any fancy PlayStation or Xbox video games with high-resolution 3-D graphics! We had the Atari 2600! With games like 'Space Invaders' and 'Asteroids'. Your screen guy was a little square! You actually had to use your imagination!!! And there were no multiple levels or screens, it was just one screen.. Forever! And you could never win. The game just kept getting harder and harder and faster and faster until you died! Just like LIFE!
10) You had to use a little book called a TV Guide to find out what was on! You were out of luck when it came to channel surfing! You had to get off your rear and walk over to the TV to change the channel!!! NO REMOTES!!! Oh, no, what's the world coming to?!?!
11) There was no Cartoon Network either! You could only get cartoons on Saturday Morning. Do you hear what I'm saying? We had to wait ALL WEEK for cartoons, you spoiled little rats!
12) And we didn't have microwaves. If we wanted to heat something up, we had to use the stove! Imagine that!
13) And our parents told us to stay outside and play... all day long. No electronics to soothe and comfort. And if you came back inside... you were doing chores!
And car seats - oh, please! Mom threw you in the back seat and you hung on. If you were lucky, you got the "safety arm" across the chest at the last moment if she had to stop suddenly, and if your head hit the dashboard, well that was your fault for calling "shot gun" in the first place!
See! That's exactly what I'm talking about! You kids today have got it too easy. You're spoiled rotten! You guys wouldn't have lasted five minutes back in 1970 or any time before!
The Over 40 Crowd
By calling for Israel to return to its pre-1967 War borders -- according to The New York Times -- President Barack Obama has thrown the tiny Jewish state under the bus.
For in doing so, he has broken decades of precedent with U.S. history; he has encouraged radical Muslims the world over to rally for indefensible borders; he has demanded a divided Jerusalem; and he has all but embraced Hamas and the genocidal Muslim Brotherhood.
Hamas has already responded: it says that Obama is delusional and that it will never recognize Israel's right to exist.
Why is it that only conservative Republicans are defending Israel? Michele Bachmann, Sarah Palin, Herman Cain, Rick Santorum, Orrin Hatch, Mark Levin, Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity among them?
Where are Jewish liberals in Congress like Barney Frank, Schmuck Schumer, Anthony's Weiner, Barbara Boxer, Diane Feinstein, et. al.? AWOL. The camera hogs suddenly can't be found.
The nearest analogy I can come up with is this: President Obama has ordered Jews to the ghettos in preparation for a final, final solution.

HEED THE WARNINGS!!!
I have received a word from the Lord YESTERDAY, and have prayed much over it before posting. I know the very IMPORTANCE OF THIS WORD. It is a WARNING WORD of great dimension, BUT IT IS BECOMING TO ME MORE... For I see now some things THROUGH THE LORDS EYES.... THAT I DID NOT SEE BEFORE I WROTE THE WORD. I went and put it on my Web Page, yesterday, and was fixing to post it here but could not... I wondered at the reason and now I know. There was MORE. And the more is wonderful when you see it in Revelation Knowledge.
This word has been A WORD COMING. It has been growing inside me till it came forth. It is like He had to SHOW ME first, and that showing has been a process of receiving. Hope you know what I am saying.... But it has been revealed to me that the STORMS IN THE SOUTH though terrible as they are ARE ONLY A WARNING and this WRNING is in preparation for OUR HEARTS AND LIVES TO CONFORM TO HIM.... HE WANTS US TO MOVE TOWARD HIM AND TRUST HIM.... It came to me that NOAH (though in reality He was saved by the Lord in the Ark) was SAVED BY THE WATER. Because He was LIFTED UP AND OVER THE DESTRUCTION ON THE WATER. The FLOODS in the Mississippi River are destruction. The NOAH FLOOD WAS DESTRUCTION. But the Man and his family (8 soul were saved) were saved in that flood. It destroyed the UNBELIEVERS but it SAVED TO BEGIN AGAN THEM IN THE ARK ON THE WATER. It is so with the FLOOD IN NEW MADRID FAULT LINE AREAS NOW..... The Lord says: "Come up into the ARK OF SAFETY and RIDE WITH ME ABOVE THIS STORM, FOR I AM HERE.... PRAISE HIS HOLY NAME!!!
It has come before me that THE STORMS AS BAD AS THEY ARE WILL SAVE MANY LIVES BECAUSE THE HEART OF PEOPLE ARE HEARING NOW THE WARNINGS....!!!! Yesterday, I had a WONDERFUL THOUGHT.... (I do not have a television and got rid of mine long ago so I can just be with the Lord) the thought was this.... THEY ARE EVACUATING THE FLOOD AREAS NOW... YES, I said, that is a WARNING... People of God HEAR THE LORD! FLEE TO THE ARK FOR THE FLOOD IS COMING.... The door on the Ark was open for 120 years, and still the people did not HEED THE WARNING! They laughed and mocked Noah and his family, but NOAH REMAIMED FAITHFUL. That faithfulness and PURE FAITH IN HIS GOD.... saved Noah and his family WHICH WERE 8 SOULS.... Eight souls!! Do you know what the Number 8 means in the Scripture? It means NEW BEGINNINGS. This will be a NEW BEGINNING FOR MANY WHO HAVE FAITH.
WATCH THE LORD.... AS HE MOVES HIS MIGHTY HAND..... TO SAVE HIS PEOPLE IN THE MIDST OF THE STORM!
I have seen this through EYES OF FAITH.... IT IS ONLY BY FAITH YOU CAN SEE THIS MESSAGE... REVELATION KNOWLEDGE... God is making a statement. But HE WANTS ME TO EXPLAIN SOMETHING HERE. He has told me very clearly WHAT TO SAY and HOW. He wants me to EXPLAIN TO YOU THAT IT IS NOT HIM WHO IS SENDING THE STORM. It is not him..... but it is HIS PEOPLE WHO HAVE CHOSE TO TRY TO WALK WITHOUT HIM IN AMERICA. It is UNBELIEF IN AMERICA. He has taken much time to help me KNOW this. It is because of the CHOICES OF PEOPLE that the evil one, and I wil not even mention his filty name here..... HE HAS DONE IT!! BUT YOU MUST KNOW that he could DO NOTHING...... UNLESS UNBELIEVING MEN AND SINFUL CHOICES..... GIVE HIM THE RIGHT TO DO IT.... It is unbelief and sinful choices that KEEP him ALIVE. He has no power EXCEPT WHAT THE CHILD OF GOD (who is delivered from his mighty power IN JESUS and is walking in JESUS' AUTHORITY over him.... ) GIVES HIM!
Now the Lord has been telling us IN HIS WORD that we are RAISED UP TO WALK WITH HIM IN HEAVENLY PLACES. RIGHT?? ( Ephesians 2:6-7) Really, the Son or Daughter of God who KNOWS WHO THEY ARE.... ARE WALKING ON THE DEVIL. HE IS UNDER THEIR FEET. Matter fact you can chase him all over town IF YOU KNOW THAT.... AND HE WILL RUN FROM YOU. But brethren and Sisters, THE CHURCH IN AMERICA has not heard this..... IF THEY DID, THEY DID NOT TAKE IT TO HEART. Now the Lord is telling me to tell you this..... He HAS NO CHOICE IN THIS MATTER. Yes, He has explained to me that HE MUST GIVE MEN HIS CHOICES. He must for DID HE NOT SAY.... CHOOSE YOU THIS DAY...?? If you make a wrong decision (GIVE THE dEVIL A WRONG TOOL.... CHOICE) that choice will effect the REST OF YOUR LIFE, or until YOU MAKE THAT CHOICE NULL AND VOID by CHOOSING TO PUT THAT CHOICE TO DEATH. Now the Lord has HAD TO STEP BACK IN HONOR OF HIS WORD. He himself is bound by His own Word. It says in his word CHOOSE LIFE..... CHOOSE DEATH.... It says "....AS MANY AS RECEIVED (choose) HIM TO HIM, TO THEM GAVE HE THE POWER TO BECOME THE SONS OF GOD, EVEN TO THEM THAT BELIEVE ON HIS NAME" ... JOHN 1:14 Now we talk about believing in him, but many do not WALK THE TALK!! We blaim Adam and Eve for handing over the Garden to the serpent, and TURN RIGHT AROUND AND DO THE SAME!! We give Him rights He DOES NOT OWN. But UNTHINKING CHRISTIANS give him the right. Now THE LORD WANTS YOU TO KNOW THIS. He has had to STEP BACK because the COLD DEAD AND LIFELESS CHURCH IN AMERICA HAS ROLLED OVER THEIR RIGHTS TO THE ENEMY! PLAIN AND SIMPLE.
Choices have been made HE MUST HONOR, and if He does not HE WILL BE A LIAR!!! AND HE HAS TOLD ME I CAN NOT LIE. It is therefore clear to me that WHEN HE TOLD ME that HE HAD BEEN HOLDING UP THE TECTONIC PLATES because to PROTECT US.... hearing and seeing our need and hearing our prayers... I UNDERSTOOD THAT.. But now He has told me HE WILL NOT HOLD THEM UP OR.... WILL NOT... BECAUSE HE CAN NOT... BECAUSE OF HIS WORD WHICH SAYS HE MUST HONOR IT OR BE A LIAR.
SO THE LORD SAYS, THE EARTHQUAKES ARE IN THE EARTH AND THEY ARE COMING AND COMING ON JUST LIKE I HAVE ALWAYS KNEW THEY WOULD... UNLESS I STEPPED IN AND HELPED. You see He is big enough YES, but HIS WORD IS BIGGER THAN THE EQ'S.
Now I must tell you what I have heard in the WORD GIVEN YESTERDAY. It is LOUD AND CLEAR. SO HERE GOES!
THE FLOODING YOU SEE IS BUT A WARNING; EVEN NOW IT DIVIDES YOUR LAND. TRAVEL IS HARD IN THE WATERS, BUT NOT AS HARD AS IT CAN BE WHEN SHAKING FOLLOWS IN THE DAYS TO COME! THIS IS A WARNING; WATCH THE AREAS AFFECTED, KNOWING IT WARNS YOU ALL. [I have gathered from hearing the Lord that He is referring here to the present flooding of the Mississippi River, and the recent Tornado outbreaks in the South. The flood and the storms are and were record breaking.]
Evacuation is now in progress; the smart will run (TO ME AND BE SAFE). Stand well away from the NEW MADRID.
I have my people in many places up and down that line (fault line); I move now to warn you,COME CLOSER than you have ever come! You will need me, I will help you. Know that I am ABLE. But you must know the reason it's happening, because of the choices many make.
I WILL PROTECT MY PEOPLE WHO COME UP UNDER MY WINGS OF PROTECTION. I WILL CALL YOU NOW LIKE A MOTHER HEN..... COME UP UNDER MY PROTECTION. I WILL SHIELD YOU FROM THE STORM!
[PLEASE NOTE: I hear Him speaking about those Christians who are NOT LIVING AND SERVING ME IN A RELATIONSHIP, and have walked in disobedience to the Lord... He says they will SUFFER for lack of REPENTANCE....
W A R N I N G !!!!]
Unbelievers and Scoffers, and Unrepentant hearts, stand in danger of the enemy's hands. TURN AND REPENT AND I WILL TURN IT, but REPENTANCE IS MY REQUIREMENT. My hands are tied, I can not lie, and I MUST KEEP MY WORD. If I do not, then I would be no better than the men you follow, but you know I am a HOLY GOD. I have said sin shall not have dominion over you, now I must stand.
ROMANS 6:14 "FOR SIN SHALL NOT HAVE DOMINION OVER YOU, FOR YOU ARE NOT UNDER THE LAW BUT UNDER GRACE."
Foundations shaken, know the outcome, it will divide men. Clearly see the ungodly, and then clearly see my People. I ARISE NOW LIKE A MIGHTY FARMER TO PLOW UNDER SIN. Pruning and watering, till the earth, and shaping my tender and lovely Ones; I will separate My People from their captive places TO WALK FREE TO WORSHIP ME.
He that has ears to hear LET HIM HEAR.... PREPARE FOR SHAKING! I have warned you it is already in the earth. See the power of natures forces in the hands of the evil one.
YOU WANTED HIM, AMERICA; NOW LET US SEE HOW YOU LIKE HIS PROGRAM!!
THIS IS A CALL TO REPENTANCE..... "IF MY PEOPLE WILL 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 HEAL THEIR LAND."
Bretheren IT IS OUR CHOICE NOW... TURN IN REPENTANCE OR.... I belivee IF WE TURN AND REPENT AS A NATION... HE WILL TURN IT... EVEN AS HE SAID... BUT NOTICE... IT MUST BE REPENTANCE... THIS IS WHAT HE IS ASKING FOR..
This message was given to me Ken Dewey and IT HAS MOVED ME TO REPENTANCE FOR THE CHURCH IN AMERICA!!

A tornado is like specific budget cuts. No one knows in advance whose house will be blown away.
Some families buy houses with storm shelters. But hardly anyone ever builds a home.
Most families are barely getting buy. They spend as much as they bring in after taxes and mortgage. They do not make specific cuts in spending deep enough to build up a reserve.
So, they do not prepare storm shelters. They kick the can. They imitate Congress.
Do you need gold coins? Yes. Do you need a back-up plan if you lose your job? Yes. Do you need a network of people who might be able to find you a job? Yes. Do you need a side business? Probably. Do you need skills that can be transferred to a new line of work? Yes. Do you need a plan to make sure you stay on the short list of "must not fire"? Yes.
Are you actively building your financial storm shelter?

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio wants federal dollars rejected by states to go towards paying down the national debt and not end up being spent somewhere else.
Rubio, a Republican, on Tuesday introduced the Returned Exclusively For Unpaid National Debt or the REFUND Act.
Florida Gov. Rick Scott’s recently rejected $2.4 billion in federal funds for high-speed rail. The Obama administration has said other states can apply for the money. Rubio says those funds should instead go back to the treasury to pay down the debt.
The legislation, Rubio said, would allow states to have the “best interests at heart” when deciding whether to accept federal dollars “without worrying that the money will be spent elsewhere.”
“It takes a great deal of courage for state officials to take the long view and reject debt-financed federal funds,” he said.

Among the most outrageous was an e-mail allegedly from schoolteacher Katherine Windels, which read: "Please put your things in order because you will be killed and your families will also be killed due to your actions in the last 8 weeks. Please explain to them that this is because if we get rid of you and your families then it will save the rights of 300,000 people and also be able to close the deficit that you have created. I hope you have a good time in hell." She's been charged with two felony counts, including a bomb threat.
The controversial collective-bargaining law itself is in limbo, thanks to a restraining order issued in March by a judge in Dane County, where Madison is located. The ludicrous grounds: a claim that Republicans didn't give the public "proper notice" for a March 9 meeting that cleared the way for the bill's passage.
The state Supreme Court has set oral arguments on Walker's appeal of that ruling for June 6.
In a plain bid to wire that court, liberal JoAnne Kloppenburg challenged incumbent Justice David Prosser earlier this year. When she lost, she requested a recount, which thus far has cost state taxpayers nearly a quarter of a million dollars. The recount, which with all but one county reporting hasn't come close to
overturning the result, is to finish May 26.
But even that won't be an end: Kloppenburg has said she'd likely to go court to challenge the election's legality.
Obama signed the failed $787 billion stimulus bill his first month in office.No wonder the Obama Administration doesn’t talk about the created or saved stimulus jobs anymore. There weren’t any. According to a new study the Obama-Pelosi Stimulus bill created 450,000 government jobs and delayed or destroyed 1,000,000 private sector jobs.
And, it only cost you $1 trillion.
"It turns out it is not commencement speeches or self-help books that make us hopeful. Recently, with the development of non-invasive brain imaging techniques, we have gathered evidence that suggests our brains are hard-wired to be unrealistically optimistic. When we learn what the future may hold, our neurons efficiently encode unexpectedly good information, but fail to incorporate information that is unexpectedly bad."
Sometimes Optimism is not your friend
That’s why when we listen to Oprah Winfrey’s rags-to-riches story our brain takes note and concludes that we too may become immensely rich and powerful one day; but when told the likelihood of being unemployed is almost 1 in 10 or of suffering from cancer is over 1 in 3 we take no notice.
Such optimistic illusions, with all of their advantages, unfortunately come at a price. Underestimating risk makes us less likely to practice safe sex, save for retirement, buy insurance or undergo medical screenings.
In some cases relatively minor biases can even lead to global disaster. Take the financial crisis of 2008. Each investor, homeowner, banker or economic regulator expected slightly better profits than were realistically warranted. On its own, each bias would not have created huge losses. Yet when combined in one market they produced a giant financial bubble that did just that.
