Some New Year’s Resolutions for Our Progressive Pals - Kurt Schlichter

This is hilarious.. and true.  The year 2016 was a great one for our progressive friends – except for
that whole utter repudiation unpleasantness of last November. Now, as a
concerned conservative friend eager to help, let me offer you some New
Year's resolutions that will keep you on the path to success. The bottom
line: stay the course!

Tapestry of my work life…

I grew up on a farm and in a shop.  I also was a gardener.  These are earliest memories for me.  Parents and relatives were of the earth.

I was always inventing things.  Taking things apart; Putting them back together sometimes with success, not always.

Working in the shop with tools taught me well.  Working on the farm with animals and equipment also prepared me for life.

I got an education in school. Probably should have skipped High School and went straight to college.  Learned nearly all there.  Sang in a choir, played in bands.  Crammed 4 years into 5.  Would have enjoyed being a perpetual student.

Began raising vegetables on rented land.  Did that for 3 years in college.  Also worked at K-Mart in the Patio Department  (Blue Light Specials et al) quit that and worked in Produce in a supermarket (fired), Farmed every summer, mostly raising vegetables.  Then got a job selling farm equipment.  Few hundred bucks a month and all the used steel I could eat.  But there was a commission. Prospered at it. Eventually did well enough where I bought a small piece of land.  Farmed it.

Learned to trade commodities during that time. Oats, Corn, Pork Bellies.  Huge wins larger losses.  Learned economics the hard way. 

In the Mid 70s quit the equipment business to go into the technology field.  Personal computers were new.  Started a small corporation.  It became a big one.  Then a second in software that didn’t.  And a third in Radio Networking that did.  And all the while farming.. owned a dairy farm.. for a while.   Sold out when it didn’t work.

In the 1980s land I had contracts on to own went away.. the inflation of the Carter years were washed away by Paul Volker and I was nearly broke.  From great plenty… to the edge of disaster.

Just in time a call came from a company in Chicago.  Come and help.  So I moved here.  Operated that company for a few years .. then moved to Germany to manage a company there.  Both went really well.

Returning then in the early 90s I decided to get back into Horticulture and Farming.  Worked in marketing for a major Nursery.  Then for a while recruited back into software.  That only lasted several months.  Missed the outdoors.  Worked for a local family nursery.  Fired.  Started my own.  Became a good sized corporation.  Closed it in 2002 and started the company I own today.   Began consulting for other nurseries, banks and financial institutions. 

Now after 50+ years of work in a dozen different fields I see how they all book-ended together to bring me to this point.  I am convinced that some things could never have happened without these various activities.  Am I a jack of all trades??  Sorta.. but master of some. 

I wish that many people would see how the tapestry of life is closely woven by Father God and no matter what happens, it’s all good.. even when it seems not to be.

What Women Want

I saw this on Facebook.  A woman posted this.  SHE IS SINGLE.  And daydreaming.

In any case.. read and be amused

20 things Women Want in and from a man. Here are the following things Women want or expect.
1. She is looking for a Spiritual man. One who loves God first
2. She is looking for a leader. Women actually want you to take the lead and be the priest that you are. Women are attracted to men that have power.
3. She's looking for a man with great qualities. Loving, caring, kind, respectful, integral and honest.
4. She is looking for a man that can give her something she cannot give or do for herself.
5 Women are looking for a man to be sensitive and in tune to her needs. she's looking for attention. If you don't give it to her, you put her at risk to seek it elsewhere.
6. She is looking for quality time. If you don't spend time with her you will lose her. No one wants to be in a relationship and still feel alone. Make time. Being too busy will destroy your relationship. Too busy means i dont have time for you and you are not a priority. This also tells her you may not be interested and she is not as important to you.
7. She is looking for Communication- This is MUST for a woman. Failure to do so can jepordize the relationship. Women like to communicate and for a man to listen.
8. She is looking for someone that is financially stable. If you don't have it together it suggest that you don't have your priorities in order. if you can't manage money how can you support her.

14. Women want men that have a good personality. make her laugh
if you are dry, boring, bland predictable she'll lose interest. be spontaneous and full of surprises.

Donald Trump could erase Obama's legacy almost as soon as he takes office

President-elect Donald Trump's victory on Election Day has put some of President Barack Obama's hallmark achievements in jeopardy.

Trump has come out strongly against almost all of the top initiatives Obama spent eight years working on — the Asia pivot, the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade pact, Obamacare, and the Iran nuclear deal — and they're fragile enough that Trump could reverse course fairly easily.

"You have an outsider president being replaced by the most outsider candidate ever elected," Ian Bremmer, a geopolitical analyst and president of the Eurasia Group, told Business Insider via email.

"There's nothing like one upsmanship, big league, to destroy your legacy."

Obama's White House Christmas Message Full of BS and Lies - Thank God It's His Last One

Now here’s the truth.

Under Obama more than 94 million Americans are out of work – the highest level ever in American history.  Food stamps are at all time highs and Obama’s GDP Growth rate is the 4th lowest of the more than 40 Presidents in American history and worst in nearly a century.  American home ownership is the lowest in nearly 50 years and US federal debt has never been higher with
Obama nearly doubling the amount from all the prior Presidents combined
to nearly $20 trillion.  Americans will be burdened with $10 trillion
in Obama debt for decades to come.

Obama’s health insurance program is a mess with year after year of
grossly increasing premiums for Americans everywhere.  Young people have
to pay huge Obamacare premiums or
get hit with large tax penalties for not buying insurance.  It was not
what it was promised and insurance companies are dropping out due to
solvency concerns.

America is less respected worldwide due to Obama being blamed for the
mess in the Middle East in Libya, Syria and Iraq.  Obama’s actions created ISIS and millions have been murdered, raped, beheaded or misplaced during the Obama years while he did nothing to help.  Instead Obama gave billions to Iran and turned his back on Israel.
