‘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.

‘The plans of the diligent lead surely to abundance, but everyone who is hasty comes only to poverty.’  ~ Proverbs 21:5

  

If you are actually interested in how we reached our current economic condition–primarily the death sprial of the u.S. Dollar–watch this Youtube video of Ron Paul at the recent End the Federal Reserve rally in Houston.  The level of his economic and historical acumen in breathtaking–and extremely informative.  He explains succinctly how we got here and, perhaps more importantly, where we are going and how to protect yourself and your family.  (Make certain to watch all four parts.)

‘Look, I tell you, lift up your eyes, and see that the fields are white for harvest.’  ~ John 4:35b

 

  • I have checked into the details and I was able to confirm that this incident did NOT occur at WPC: ‘Two people have been charged in a fight that broke out between neighbors attending a baby shower Sunday, during which a woman knocked another unconscious with a shovel and a man allegedly threatened a crowd with a shotgun.’ 

When Music is Lost in Translation

 

 

 

  • ‘In all that time, I was one of those atheists in the foxholes they say don’t exist. I could never have known that I’d find the faith to follow Christ and be baptized on Easter of my 56th year. But I did, even when I’d never grasped for spiritual reassurance as I slogged through the Central Highlands of Vietnam, leapt from airplanes into the night, or had helicopters shot out from under me. I’ve been taking up residence close to death for a long time. My faith isn’t about jumping over death. It’s about reconciling with God, who Jesus Christ showed us is Love.’ 

 

  • ‘Our political economy is rife with such catastrophes in waiting, yet the public always seems startled, and outraged, when the day of reckoning can no longer be deferred, and another apartment collapses in the state’s Hotel of Impossible Promises, loading onto the taxpayers more visibly the burden of sheltering the previous occupants. … If you think that Fannie and Freddie’s bust is a big deal, just wait until Medicare comes crashing down. Then, the wailing and gnashing of teeth will be truly unbearable. As that day rapidly approaches, however, you’ll notice that the politicians are doing utterly nothing to forestall it.’ 

 

  • ‘Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Biden said Thursday that paying more in taxes is the patriotic thing to do for wealthier Americans.’ 

 

  • ‘I also have to laugh – guffaw, really – at how easily conservatives have been taken in by the Palin choice. Why, it was only yesterday that the Right was breathing fire out of its nostrils and threatening to sit on its scaly wings come Election Day, what with the “maverick” (i.e., RINO) McCain at the top of the Republican ticket. Now even Rush Limbaugh – who was the loudest anti-McCainiac, if not the most articulate – is purring like the big tabby-cat he really is, sidling up to Palin and exhorting the party faithful to rally ’round the banner of Palinism. But what is Palinism, anyway?’ 

 

 

 

 

 

“[ABC News’ Charlie] GIBSON: And under the NATO treaty, wouldn’t we then have to go to war if Russia went into Georgia?

“[Sarah] PALIN: Perhaps so. I mean, that is the agreement when you are a NATO ally, is if another country is attacked, you’re going to be expected to be called upon and help.”

  • The federal government may seem like a financial knight on a white steed riding to the rescue of big companies in trouble. The irony is that Uncle Sam’s got enormous money problems of his own. The government is far deeper in debt than any of the companies it’s bailing out.’
