I think that we are, now, so unfamiliar with what a thriving economy is like that we don't even realize that such an economy would be demanding workers, not sending them away. We are rapidly loosing sight of what a healthy economy looks like. So much so, that our reliance is strictly on artificial solutions instead of natural ones.
John W., you probably know that essential oils, if of high enough quality, can be used for medicinal purposes, right? And that essential oils are plant-based? In fact, more basic than that, fruits and vegetables are essential to good nutrition. However, only 32.5% of Americans eat two servings of fruit per day and only 26.3% get three servings of vegetables. In the nutrition world, this is disgusting! And yet, there are 100 overdoses of prescription drugs and the average American fills 12 prescriptions annually. How many people know that there's an Institute that cures people of stage three cancer every day just by changing the patients diet?
What is wrong with this picture? It's easy! Americans have lost sight of what is real and good for them. They no longer recognize what is (naturally) right and wrong; they have begun to rely on man-made solutions, that invariably fall short anyway, instead of safe and effective natural ones.
What is a 'natural one'?
For example: http://www.theadvocates.org/word-choices...
Once man puts his hand into creating a 'solution', you can bet that eventually it will have gross limitations. Man is okay with specific objects, but quite poor at human systems.
The easiest form of natural government is, of course, self-government. In this way you don't have to 'artificially' create anything, unless, of course, you'd like to lie to yourself. You only have to keep your own house in order. And, regarding others, just do to them as you'd like them to do to you.
Of course, we all know this, right? What we really need is to start seeking natural solutions to all of our problems; simpler solutions that are demonstrated in nature or involve just ourselves to work with.
The Facts are FACTS. We have to bring up a generation like the fathers intended!
The great enemy of the salvation of man, in my opinion, never invented a more effectual means of extirpating [extinguishing] Christianity from the world than by persuading mankind that it was improper to read the Bible at schools. [T]he Bible, when not read in schools, is seldom read in any subsequent period of life. . . . [It] should be read in our schools in preference to all other books from its containing the greatest portion of that kind of knowledge which is calculated to produce private and public temporal happiness.

There is no such thing as a moderate Muslim ... It isn't Islamophobia when they really ARE trying to kill you! Call it Free Syrian Army ... call it Syrian Opposition ... call it whatever you want, and what our resident president chooses ... but it is ALL ISIS !! Obama has been arming, funding, and using our troops to train them ... all using OUR tax dollars! How crazy is that ! Now he is sending $500 million more of our tax dollars to them ...

OBAMA’S “MODERATE” SYRIAN REBELS: “Our jihad started in Syria and it won’t finish until we are on your land and this banner in Allah’s name, will be raised on the White House”
ATTENTION AMERICA! These are the so-called ‘moderate’ rebels to whom Barack Hussein Obama just pledged $500 million. Call them what you will – FSA, Free Syrian Army or Syrian Opposition – they are all ISIS and Obama has been arming, funding, and using our troops to train them for more than two years. Now he is going to give them $500 million more of your tax dollars. What are you going to do?
These “moderates” are anything but moderate. They not only are no different than the al Qaeda offshoots of al-Nusra Front and ISIS, but most of them have joined forces with one of these groups. There is no Free Syrian Army. There are only Islamic terrorist groups whose mutual goal is to bring down the secular Assad Regime and replace it with an Islamic Caliphate.

Be firm, be bold, be strong be true ...
And dare to stand alone;
Strive, strive for the right, whate'er you do.
Tho' helper there be none,
Tho' helper there be none.
Stand for the right, and hold your ground,
Tho' proud lips coldly sneer;
A poisoned arrow cannot wound;
A conscience pure and clear,
A conscience pure and clear.
Christian boldness requires determined support of the TRUTH ...
It is cowardice to yield. We might fight manfully for the truth; so Christ did, so did the Apostles, so did early Christians. We must defend the truth everywhere, in all our interaction with those in error. There must be no yielding, no compromising, no disposition to lower down truth, to hide it's point, to make the sword of the Spirit powerless, no unwillingness to use it if called upon!
Lord, look upon their threats and grant to your servants to continue to speak your word with all boldness ...
DON"T BELEIVE A WORD THIS F**CKER SAYS
Read between the lines and what he's doing behind closed doors. This is nothing more than another plan to disarm Americans
President Obama recalled the one-year anniversary of the Washington Navy Yard shootings, calling it an "an unspeakable act of violence."
"As we remember men and women taken from us so senselessly, we keep close their family and friends, stand with the survivors who continue to heal and pay tribute to the first responders who acted with skill and bravery," he said in a statement released on Tuesday.
Obama also called for Americans to reject the ideas that shootings were the "new normal," calling for "common-sense" gun control and increased security on military bases.
"One year ago, 12 Americans went to work to protect and strengthen the country they loved. Today, we must do the same – rejecting atrocities like these as the new normal and renewing our call for common-sense reforms that respect our traditions while reducing the gun violence that shatters too many American families every day," he concluded.
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, one of the masterminds behind Obamacare, has now explained that he wishes to die at age 75. In an article in The Atlantic, Emanuel writes, “Seventy-five. That’s how long I want to live: 75 years.” He explains that his daughters disagree; so do his brothers and his friends. But, he says, “I am sure of my position…here is a simple truth that many of us seem to resist: living too long is also a loss.

It renders many of us, if not disabled, then faltering and declining, a state that may not be worse than death but is nonetheless deprived.”
Someone should ask Emanuel’s parents, who are currently in their late 80s, how they feel about this estimate of old age. I recently saw them at a Jewish National Fund dinner in Chicago, where their son is the mayor. They seemed happy, healthy, and full of pep and vinegar. Although, obviously, Ezekiel knows better:
Today he can swim, read the newspaper, needle his kids on the phone, and still live with my mother in their own house. But everything seems sluggish. Although he didn’t die from the heart attack, no one would say he is living a vibrant life. When he discussed it with me, my father said, “I have slowed down tremendously. That is a fact. I no longer make rounds at the hospital or teach.”
Emanuel grudgingly adds, “Despite this, he also said he was happy.”
Emanuel’s push for people to die at 75 is deeply connected to Obamacare, which insists that care be rationed for the elderly – who, presumably, must be encouraged to make the same “mature” decision about death Emanuel has made.

Fear is more powerful than faith. Until that changes none of us are free. - Russell Brand
I am sure this quote could be taken in many ways and my take is from just as I see the words quoted.
No matter what you have your faith in, if you allow fear to rule you then you can not have the faith in the good of others because you allow your fear of others to rule you. If your faith is in a god but you allow fear to rule you life then the fear wins. If you want to start a business but the fear of what might or could happen wins, then you lost before you even started.
It really doesn't matter, those who are trying to instill any kind of fear in us are only wanting to control us in some way, they want to take our free will from us and live by their will, they want us to do as they want and if anyone can find an argument to this, please try....

While many have rightfully criticized U.S. President Obama’s recent assertion that the Islamic State “is not Islamic,” some of his other equally curious but more subtle comments pronounced in the same speech have been largely ignored.
Consider the president’s invocation of the “grievances” meme to explain the Islamic State’s success: “At this moment the greatest threats come from the Middle East and North Africa, where radical groups exploit grievances for their own gain. And one of those groups is ISIL—which calls itself the Islamic State.”
Obama’s logic, of course, is fortified by an entire apparatus of professional apologists who make the same claim. Thus Georgetown professor John Esposito—whose apologetics sometimes morph into boldfaced lies—also recently declared that “The “primary drivers [for the Islamic State’s violence] are to be found elsewhere,” that is, not in Islam but in a “long list of grievances.”
In other words and once again, it’s apparently somehow “our fault” that Islamic State Muslims are behaving savagely—crucifying, beheading, enslaving, and massacring people only on the basis that they are “infidels”: thus when IS herds and slaughters “infidel” men (citing the example of the prophet)—that’s because they’re angry at something America did; when IS captures “infidel” women and children, and sells them on the sex-slave market (citing Islamic teachings)—that’s because they’re angry at something America did; when IS bombs churches, breaks their crosses, and tells Christians to convert or die (citing Islamic scriptures)—that’s because they’re angry at something America did.
Although the “grievance” meme flies in the face of logic, it became especially popular after the 9/11 al-Qaeda strikes on America. The mainstream media, following the Islamist propaganda network Al Jazeera’s lead, uncritically picked up and disseminated Osama bin Laden’s videotapes to the West where he claimed that al-Qaeda’s terror campaign was motivated by grievances against the West—grievances that ranged from U.S. support for Israel to failure for the U.S. to sign the Kyoto Agreement concerning climate change.
Of course, that was all rubbish, and I have written more times than I care to remember about how in their internal Arabic-language communiques to fellow Muslims that never get translated to English, Osama, al-Qaeda, and virtually every Islamist organization make it a point to insist that jihad is an Islamic obligation that has nothing to do with grievances.
Consider Osama’s own words in an internal letter to fellow Saudis:
Our talks with the infidel West and our conflict with them ultimately revolve around one issue — one that demands our total support, with power and determination, with one voice — and it is: Does Islam, or does it not, force people by the power of the sword to submit to its authority corporeally if not spiritually?
Yes. There are only three choices in Islam:  either willing submission [conversion];  or payment of the jizya, through physical, though not spiritual, submission to the authority of Islam;  or the sword — for it is not right to let him [an infidel] live. The matter is summed up for every person alive: Either submit, or live under the suzerainty of Islam, or die. (The Al Qaeda Reader, p. 42)
Conversion, submission, or the sword is, of course, the mission of the Islamic State—not alleviating “grievances.” Yet it’s worse than that; for unlike al-Qaeda, the Islamic State, from day one of its existence, has made it very clear—in Osama’s words, “with power and determination, with one voice”—that its massacres, enslavements, crucifixions, and beheadings of “infidels” are all based on Islamic law or Sharia—not silly “grievances” against the West. Unlike al-Qaeda, the Islamic State is confident enough to avoid the grievances/taqiyya game and forthrightly asserts its hostility for humans based on their religious identity.
Yet by slipping the word “grievances” to explain the Islamic State’s Sharia-based savageries, Obama apparently hopes America has been thoroughly conditioned like Pavlov’s dog to automatically associate Islamic world violence with “grievances.”
What Obama fails to understand—or fails to mention—is that, yes, the Islamic State, al-Qaeda, and countless angry Muslims around the world are indeed often prompted to acts of violence by “grievances.” But as fully explained here, these “grievances” are not predicated on any universal standards of equality or justice, only a supremacist worldview.
We don't have enough of radicalism?
It’s starting to look like any dream the the United Nations and American Idealists have about global freedom of religion is more likely to turn into a global religious war, than their dream come true
“Just as those who stay in England are English, those who stay in Germany are German, and those in US are Americans, all those who stay in Hindustan are Hindus,” Bhagwat said in August
Regardless of whether they admit it or not, Sunni Muslims see the Islamic State as a chance to restore the Caliphate and eliminate the minority Shia Muslim Sect forever. They also see an opportunity to conquer and hold Europe.. something they spent almost a thousand years trying to do, before giving up following their defeat at the Gates of Vienna in 1683. I guess they miss having an easy source of white slaves.. In Africa the Muslims are still engaged in constant warfare so they can harvest slaves from the non Muslim population.
Now India’s Hindu population, which has had it’s own share of wars with Muslim Invaders wants preempt the the possibility of an uprising by the Country’s 175,000,000 Muslims by either converting them, or throwing them out.. While they’re at it, they want to toss out the Christians too..
I found the article below in Jafria News, a Shia Muslim site:
Indian Extremist Hindus Plan to convert all the Minorities to Hinduism , Including all Muslims
Emboldened by the rightist Hindu Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Hindu groups have been railing against other faiths in India, vowing to work on converting the whole Muslim and Christian communities within the next decade.
“The Hindu wave has just begun. In 10 years we will convert all Christians and Muslims,” Hindu activist and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) member Rajeshwar Singh said during an event to convert a Christian family to Hinduism in the rural town of Hasayan, 140 km (87 miles) south of Delhi, Reuters reported.

He was a mighty man of valour, he was the son of a harlot: and Gilead begat Jephthah. And Gilead's wife bore him sons; and the wife's sons when they grew up, they threw Jephthah out, and they said, You're not gonna inherit our father's house; you're the son of a strange woman. So Jephthah fled from his brothers, and he dwelled in the land of Tob: and there gathered unto him vain men who began to [sort of pal around him].
He was a mighty man of valour, he was the son of a harlot: and Gilead begat Jephthah. And Gilead's wife bore him sons; and the wife's sons when they grew up, they threw Jephthah out, and they said, You're not gonna inherit our father's house; you're the son of a strange woman. So Jephthah fled from his brothers, and he dwelled in the land of Tob: and there gathered unto him vain men who began to [sort of pal around him]. And it came to pass in the process of time, that the children of Ammon made war against Israel. And it was so, when the children of Ammon made war against Israel, the elders of Gilead sent to fetch Jephthah out of the land of Tob: And they said to Jephthah, Come, and be our captain, that we might fight with the children of Ammon. And Jephthah said unto the elders of Gilead, Did you not hate me, and expel me out of my father's house? why are you now come because you are in distress? The elders of Gilead said unto Jephthah, Therefore we turn again to thee now, that you may go with us, and fight against the children of Ammon, and be our head over all of the inhabitants of Gilead. So Jephthah said unto the elders of Gilead, If you bring me home again to fight against the children of Ammon, and the LORD delivers them before me, shall I be your head? And the elders of Gilead said to Jephthah, The LORD be witness between us, if we do not according to your words (Jdg 11:1-10).
In other words will you let me rule over you?
So Jephthah went with the elders of Gilead, the people made him the head and captain over them: and Jephthah uttered all of his words before the LORD in Mizpeh. And Jephthah sent messengers unto the king of the children of Ammon, saying, What have you to do with me, that you come against me to fight in my land? And the king of the children of Ammon and said to the messengers of Jephthah, Because Israel took away my land, when they came up out of Egypt, from Arnon even to Jabbok, and unto Jordan: and now therefore restore those lands again peaceably (Jdg 11:11-13).
So there was a little sort of a running feud. Jephthah sent, and he said, "Hey, why are you guys coming to fight to take away our land?" And they sent back, "Hey, we were here before you ever thought of being here. We lived here before you came and you came and took the land away from us."
So he wrote back to them another message. It said, "No way. We were willing to live peaceably. You came out against us. You started the fight and we wiped you. And so the land belongs to us. We've been dwelling there all along. How come you haven't come sooner to reclaim it? Why didn't you take it then you know, if it was your land? So we settled in it. It's our land."
And so they then gathered together to battle. Now, at this point Jephthah made a vow unto God. He said, "Lord if you will deliver these people of Ammon or the Ammonites into my hand giving me victory over them, then I will sacrifice unto you the first thing that comes out of the door of my house when I return home as a burnt offering unto thee."
So God delivered the Ammonites into the hands of Jephthah. And he was coming home victorious, leading the armies and who should come out the door of his house than his daughter, his only child? With a tambourine and a song that she had made up of the great victories of her father and the how great of dad and everything he was. And when he saw her come out the door he said, "Oh sweetheart, you've brought grief to my soul today."
And she said, "Dad, whatever you promised the Lord to do, go ahead and do." And so he told the vow that he had made and she said, "All right you know, you've made a vow to God and you're to do it but," she said, "Allow me a couple of months to go through the mountains with my friends and just sort of bewail my virginity." And so she went through the mountains bewailing her virginity for a couple of months.
And it came to pass [verse thirty-nine] at the end of two months, that she returned unto her father, who did with her according to his vow which he had vowed: and she knew no man. And it was a custom in Israel, that the daughters of Israel went yearly to lament the daughter of Jephthah the Gileadite four days in a year (Jdg 11:39-40).
Now, number one, God had forbidden human sacrifice. There is a question of whether or not he actually killed her. The burnt offering sacrifice was actually a sacrifice of consecration unto God. And there are some commentators who teach that he gave her to God to perpetual virginity. In other words, to keep her from ever marrying and she was consigned to a life of celibacy because of the vow her father had made. That is possible, it isn't probable but it is possible. From the apparent reading of the text he did this awful thing and actually sacrificed his daughter unto the Lord.
However, I am convinced that God did not require it of him nor would God require it of him. Under the law where your first child actually was to be given to God, God made provisions for the redemption of the first child with an animal. And I'm certain that God would have allowed Jephthah to make a substitution for his daughter in this case.
We must remember that in the society that was surrounding the children of Israel in those days, human sacrifice of your children was a very common thing to the pagan gods. In the worship of Moloch, in the worship of Baal, the common practice was the sacrificing of your children unto god, unto your gods. In the uncovering of the houses of the Canaanites, in the foundations of the houses they discovered many jars with the skeletons of babies. They considered a good luck omen to actually bury your baby in the foundation when you build a house sacrificing it unto the gods and so forth. And it was common practice among the pagans by which the children of Israel surrounded. But it was something that was strictly forbidden by God. So if Jephthah did it, he did it of his own will, not because God demanded it. It is a very horrible thing. It is hard for us to understand. We cannot really blame God. You say, "But why did God allow her to come first out of the house? Why didn't she chase the cat out in front of her or something?" That I don't know.
