‘You shall dwell with us, and the land shall be open to you. Dwell and trade in it, and get property in it.’  ~ Genesis 34:10

 

  • Apparently, these folks have never read Isaiah 53.  (Oh, the wisdom of men…)  A METRE-HIGH tablet with 87 lines of Hebrew that scholars believe dates from the decades just before the birth of Jesus is causing a stir in biblical and archaeological circles because it may speak of a messiah who will rise from the dead after three days.  If such a messianic description really is there, it will contribute to a developing re-evaluation of both popular and scholarly views of Jesus, because it suggests the story of his death and resurrection was not unique but part of a recognised Jewish tradition at the time.’  (Really?!!  Next you’re going to tell me that the New Testament isn’t the first time Jesus was spoken about!)

 

  • In the Land of the Free Report: Save your home from being destroyed by fire—and go to jail. 

 

  • Ron Paul has been beating this drum for years but folks just didn’t want to hear it.  Now, they act as if it is newly discovered information: ‘The almighty U.S. dollar is mighty no more. It has been declining steadily for six years against other major currencies, undercutting its role as the leading international banking currency. The long slide is fanning inflation in the U.S. and playing a major role in the run-up of oil and gasoline prices everywhere.’ 

 

  • ‘In fact, not too long ago one family actually decided to flee Germany to Iran to home school their children, if you can believe a family fleeing Germany to Iran for freedom.’ 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • The War kills at home, too: ‘His internal terror got so bad that, in 2005, he shot up his El Paso, Texas, apartment and held police at bay for three hours with a 9-mm handgun, believing Iraqis were trying to get in.  Last month, on June 28, police in Pinehurst, N.C., who responded to Dwyer’s home, said the 31-year-old collapsed and died after abusing a computer cleaner aerosol. Dwyer had moved to North Carolina after living in Texas.’ 

 

 

  • ‘Put another way, if [Federal Reserve Chairman] Ben Bernanke thinks he has a problem now with crashing home prices, wait and see how scared he gets when commercial real estate blows apart. How likely is this? My colleagues and I think it’s pretty much a done deal. It’s not a matter of if, it’s a matter of when.’  ~ Addison Wiggin

 

 

 

  • I discovered this great time saver from another blog: When is Good? 

 

 

 

  • ‘It turns out that much of what we think we know about one of the most studied episodes in modern history is either inaccurate or incomplete. Even more alarming, much of what Kennedy thought he knew about Soviet actions and motivations rested on flawed intelligence reports.’
