‘And I did so in Jerusalem. I not only locked up many of the saints in prison after receiving authority from the chief priests, but when they were put to death I cast my vote against them.’ ~ Acts 26:10

 

Here are some folks who understand the importance of gold:

  • Property rights were eradicated in the name of the Civil Rights (sic) crusade. Therefore, folks should not be surprised to discover that a woman is being brought up on civil rights violations for requesting a Christian roommate—in her own home.  [Update: The charges were later dropped.]
  • Sadly, I found out the hard way that this phone hasn’t been invented yet.
  • Coconut oil is exceptionally helpful for pregnant women, nursing moms, the elderly, those concerned about digestive health, athletes (even weekend warriors), and those of you who just want to enhance your overall health.’
  • So, you have a rat and you have a land mine.  What to do?
  • The truth is that the US is insolvent and its policymakers will stop at nothing in order to avoid sovereign default. So, it should come as no surprise that at its latest meeting, the Federal Reserve downplayed the risk of inflation, thereby setting the stage for another round of money creation.’
  • In the waters off Tybee Island, Georgia, right at the Georgia/South Carolina border and not far from Savannah, buried in about 10 feet of silt is a hydrogen bomb. It’s been there for more than 50 years. . . The sad lesson is that we have less to fear from naked aggression than we do from incompetence and bad engineering.’
  • It wasn’t the New Deal that made folks fond of FDR—it was his push to repeal the 21st Amendment.

Industry Booms as States Vote Repeal of Prohibition’

  • The national security police state has been advancing for years but now that the true takeover of American society is in full swing, Americans are finally beginning to understand that everything supposedly aimed at terrorists is in fact directed towards them.’
  • Rising food prices and shortages could cause instability in many countries as the cost of staple foods and vegetables reached their highest levels in two years, with scientists predicting further widespread droughts and floods.’
  • The economic whizzing contests regarding currency devaluations currently underway (actually, they’ve been underway for quite some time) would be a thing of the past if countries simply backed their currencies with gold. That would mean that they would be forced to live within their means.

The economic storm is gathering.

  • A proper understanding of God’s Providence precludes any serious contemplation of ‘What If’ history, of course (Ephesians 1:11); however, it is sometimes an interesting exercise to imagine how one incident might have affected—and saved—millions of lives, had it occurred differently.
  • We’re the people that live. They can’t wipe us out, they can’t lick us. We’ll go on forever, Pa, cos we’re the people.’
  • Decades from now, I fully expect to see an epidemic of deafness due to the amazing volumes at which folks listen to music. Likewise, we may not be surprised to find an alarming rise in the rate of brain cancer due to cell phones.
