What Will Happen on December 21, 2012?


The Mayan civilization had one of the most advanced calendars outside of Europe or Asia. When crafting their calendar, they ended it on December 21, 2012. What's going to happen that day? Surely, most people aren't afraid, but what are some of the theories out there? National Geographic says nothing:



Houston and Stuart's initial interpretation indicated that a god will descend at the end of Bak'tun 13. What would happen next is uncertain, although the scholars suggested this might have been a prophecy of some sort.This 1996 analysis was picked up "on many New Age websites, associated forum discussions, and even a few book chapters" as evidence that the Maya calendar had predicted the end of the world, according to Stuart.Houston and Stuart, however, independently revisited the glyphs recently and concluded that the inscription may actually contain no prophetic statements about 2012 at all.Rather, the mention of the end of Bak'tun 13 is likely a forward-looking statement that refers back to the main subject of the inscription, which is the dedication of Monument 6.

Owning my own home


Guest post from: Constance Rodgers

I thought owning my own house would be more fun than it actually is. What it actually is, though, is a lot of work, particularly the yard work. I spent a long time working on the logistics of the house like getting the water hooked up and going to the Just Energysite to find out about my energy options. I guess I really just thought about all the best parts of owning a home – not having to pay rent, not having any annoying neighbors, not needing to worry when rent rates went up, etc. What I didn’t think about was all the time that goes into keeping up a yard and how much it costs when your fridge breaks or the property tax bill comes, you know? My dad is really good at real estate and for whatever reason I kind of bumped back when he tried to give me advice. I didn’t want to hear it because I thought I was old enough to make these decisions on my own but now I really wish I had listened to him about getting in over my head. There’s something to be said for having less responsibility but be ‘wasting’ more money although I am glad I’ve got a mortgage historyand feel like I’m a mature adult for the first time in my life. I hope things get easier and I’m sure they will, honestly, because there’s nowhere to go but up from here! I think the worst thing about my particular house is that it needs a lot of work and I bought it thinking the renovations would be a snap. Boy was I wrong about that! Who would have thought it would take me over 48 hours to install tile in the bathroom? I can’t afford to hire a contractor so I’m going to have to suck it up and put in more elbow grease until this place gets finished…

Moving to Texas


Thanks for the post from Sylvester Campbell
I really hate moving so much but it’s time I went back home. I’ve loved being in California for the last ten years but my dad is sick and I need to be back home closer to my family. My sisters both stayed in Texas and built lives there (they’ve each got three kids) and since I’m the single one with a job that can really be done from anywhere it just made sense for me to come home and help out with dad’s care. I’ve been searching for the finishing touches on my new house – I need to get the outside painted and I went online and looked at electriccompaniesindallas.com/ to see about lowering my electricity bills. I finally bought a house (I can’t believe the first house I ever bought is in Texas – who would have thought!?) and I really can’t wait to make it my own. It’s hard for me to face the fact that dad’s not going to be with us forever but I guess it’s just a fact of life when you get this age. My sisters have been doing a great job of managing his care when they can, particularly since Darlene is a nurse. I really wish there was more help I could give mom but it’s tough – she’s working full time and trying to deal with the fact that her husband isn’t going to live to see any more grandkids. I know that sounds really morbid but it’s the holidays and it’s all I can think about. Who would have thought I’d be the one trying to manage everyone? I’m the one who was always off doing his own thing and making myself crazy worrying about whether or not I’d be able to pay my rent! Here I am owning a house and being able to afford life’s amenities. I never imagined I’d be the responsible one in this situation, I can tell you that!

Bob Costas Dilemna for Tomorrow’s Sunday Night Football Game – Prohibition or Ban Cars?


The NFL is not having a very good week.  This weekend two Dallas Cowboy players were involved in a car accident.  Jerry Brown, 24, was killed while riding in a car with linebacker Joshua Price-Bent.  The car apparently was travelling at a high rate of speed, hit a curb, flipped over and caught on fire.  
Bent was seen trying to help his teammate out of the car when police arrived.  He was brought to the hospital and pronounced dead.  Bent failed a sobriety test.  The exact amount he was over the legal limit is not known at this time, but he has been charged with intoxication manslaughter (never heard of such a thing).  

A tragedy for both men.  Bent faces 20 years in prison if convicted and of course a very young man has lost his life.  My deepest sympathies to his loved ones.  

The dilemma comes does Bob Costas during his lecture to the Sunday Night Football watching public decide to ban cars or bring back prohibition?  

I am not trying to make light of a horrible situation, but this question must be asked.  Professional athletes have a culture of drugs and drinking just as much as a culture of guns.  So with Costas' logic, they must be banned from all society because these individuals can't handle the money, fame, and all the things that come with it.  

Your guess on which it will be?

Jacintha Saldanha, Royal Nurse Victim of Prank, Kills Self

This is just an odd, odd story. From UPI:
The Australian radio station at the center of a prank call that appears to have led to the suicide death of a London nurse has taken the two DJs off air.

In a statement on the 2Day FM Facebook page, owners Southern Cross Austereo offered condolences to the family of Jacintha Saldanha, the nurse who apparently committed suicide after falling victim to a prank call made by DJs Mel Grieg and Christian Michael.

"Southern Cross Austereo (SCA) and 2Day FM are deeply saddened by the tragic news of the death of nurse Jacintha Saldanha from King Edward VII’s Hospital and we extend our deepest sympathies to her family and all that have been affected by this situation around the world," the statement said.

Gov't Once Again Releases "Magical" Numbers, CNBC Calls Every Single Statistic "Head Scratchers"

They say "head scratchers" because they're not allowed to say "fucking bullshit" on cable news.

Oh, and naturally, job stats were revised downward over 40,000 in September and October.

And even though the economy expanded with fewer jobs this month ("140,000"), unemployment dropped .2%. Compare that with the original numbers from last month (180,000), which caused an increase in unemployment, and you can see why this is garbage.

Happy Days Are Here Again


 
Things are not as bad as they could be; however, they certainly aren’t as good as they should be.

Recession?  What Recession?  According to the government and their media arm in the Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media the Great Recession ended in June of 2009.  Ask anyone in line at a Wal-Mart or any other store and you will probably get a different answer.

As one of my relatives, representative of most people who get their opinions from David Letterman and the social osmosis of personal prosperity, everything is turning around, everything is doing great, everything’s coming up roses, and happy days are here again! 

Or as Mr. Obama phrases it, “I think America is poised to take off.”  He also filled in the blanks about what he will need to make that happen, “So what I'm going to need, what the country needs, what the business community needs, in order to get to where we need to be, is an acknowledgment that folks like me can afford to pay a little bit higher rate.”  That’s right, more taxes today combined with a promise of cuts in the future.  How could that ever go wrong, like it did in 1986 or 1991. 

Come on Charlie Brown you can kick the football this year. 

Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner declared that the Obama administration is ready to take us over the fiscal cliff they themselves devised if Republicans aren’t willing to raise rates, close loop holes, generate revenue, or whatever else they want to call income redistribution.  Some like my relative who quotes ABCNBCCBS as a personal opinion say confidently this will be worked out. The President won’t allow it.  He even said during the debates it wouldn’t happen.  Yet, his chief financial officer is threatening it.  But not to worry, besides giving speeches and applying political pressure our glorious leader is seeking the best advice he can get from experts far and wide.

Always looking to the best and brightest President Obama is consulting with those completely objective news anchors at MSNBC or as it is also known, the Propaganda Ministry, about tax rates.  At least he’s seeking outside advice from a wide array of average American citizens like Al Sharpton and Rachel Maddow.  We can be sure that they will bravely speak truth to power as in Tax the rich!  Make them pay their fair share!!  Power to the people!!! And From each according to their ability to each according to their need!!!!

As America morphs around us into something we cannot recognize it isn’t just the prospect of a shabby economic future from here to eternity as Mr. Obama continues to organize our beloved nation into his vision of a Progressive America.  On the personal liberty front we are being regimented into the only type of society that is compatible with totalitarianism: a nation of sheep.

According to an NSA whistleblower who resigned because he did not want to be party to extra-constitutional activity reports that nearly every American citizen is under virtual observation by their government.  This whistleblower is no anonymous deep throat hiding in a parking garage.  He is William Binney, known as one of the best mathematicians and code breakers in the history of the National Security Agency, and this year’s recipient of the Callaway award: an annual prize that recognizes those who champion constitutional rights and American values at great risk to their personal or professional lives.

When asked by a reporter if the Petraeus/Allen scandal proves the notion that there is no privacy in a surveillance state Mr. Binney answered, “Yes, that’s what I’ve been basically saying for quite some time, is that the FBI has access to the data collected, which is basically the emails of virtually everybody in the country. And the FBI has access to it. All the congressional members are on the surveillance too, no one is excluded.”

Then there are Mr. Obama’s fellow travelers such as the Union bosses, the big city political bosses, and the many democrat support groups some of which aren’t even straw men for George Soros.

One democrat support group also known as the Communist Party USA has been publishing articles celebrating the victory of their preferred candidate.  Now they are organizing teleconferences and promoting rallies in support of Obama’s plans to raise taxes and demanding full funding for Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid according to the party, “Save the nation! Tax corporations! Tax the rich!”  Sound familiar?

There is also the continuing assault on our rights, especially our second amendment rights.  Never mind that restrictions on gun ownership obviously only impact lawful gun owners, and never mind that restricting law abiding citizens from owning guns merely disarms the victims every time a wacko anywhere shoots a gun it is time to vilify all gun owners.

As reported on Fox, CNN contributor Roland Martin’s podcast posted to his website Monday, Jason Whitlock, the columnist who inspired Bob Costas’ commentary on gun control during halftime of Sunday’s Dallas Cowboys-Philadelphia Eagles game on NBC said that the NRA is the new KKK.  One of the biggest differences might be that while the NRA is primarily made up of Republicans and Independents the KKK was founded and in its glory days, the days of Jim Crow, Bull Connor, and segregation populated by Democrats.  

Yes, Mr. Obama won the election as Chicago politicians always win elections however we the people have not thrown in the towel.  We have not advocated our responsibility to preserve freedom and pass on this heritage of liberty to our posterity. 

No matter how many times our power-drunk professional politicians and their media megaphone tell us that happy days are here again patriots won’t be happy until constitutionally-limited government has been restored.

Our Progressive political leadership may drive us over a cliff.  They may try to herd us and pen us under their regulations and politically correct group-think.  They may harangue us with their trained media and insult us through their Hollywood culture machine, but they will never defeat the American spirit.  We the people will keep alive the light of freedom and hold high the hope of one nation under God.

The Arab Spring: Second Thoughts?

The ongoing troubles in Egypt should not only worry American and western policy makers, but should result in them questioning the entire 2011 Arab Spring revolution and whether the costs have been worth the small rewards thus far.

Sure, the revolution has resulted in several strongmen being ousted, a type of democracy sweeping Northern Africa and the long awaited destruction of Libyan lunatic Muammar Gaddafi. However, most of the ousted despots were allies of the United States and replaced by ideological men with a political agenda unkind to the Western world and our needs in the region.

DeMint to Step Down

From Fox News:
South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint is leaving Congress to head the conservative Heritage Foundation.

The Tea Party-backed senator announced the move Thursday, saying he will step down from the Senate in January to become president of The Heritage Foundation think tank.

"I'm leaving the Senate now, but I'm not leaving the fight. I've decided to join The Heritage Foundation at a time when the conservative movement needs strong leadership in the battle of ideas," he said in a statement. "No organization is better equipped to lead this fight and I believe my experience in public office as well as in the private sector as a business owner will help Heritage become even more effective in the years to come."

DeMint has been an outspoken voice in the Senate for its most conservative wing, most recently chiding House Republican leaders for offering to put revenue on the table as part of negotiations over the looming fiscal crisis.

Unfortunately, Ed Asner Has Lost His Mind

As a moonbat and a 9/11 Truther, most of us knew that already. But this is even weirder (and dumber). He placed himself in an idiotic rant:

"I don't remember a thing I said on it or a word I said on it, but I agreed to do it for California teachers," said Asner, who is in New York appearing in the Broadway show "Grace."
When the scene was described for the veteran actor best known for his role as the crusty TV newsroom boss on the 1970's show "Mary Tyler Moore," Asner quipped: "How disgusting. It should be reversed."
Then, he bizarrely asked the questioner, from the channel's "Hannity" show, if he had any money and dropped his vulgar request.
"Can I piss on you?" Asner asked.
The eight-minute video, titled “Tax the rich: An animated fairy tale,” was written and directed by California Federation of Teachers’ communications director Fred Glass and criticizes America's wealthy for not paying their fair share of taxes to fund services for the rest of the country. It drew harsh reviews from several critics of public sector unions in California, where the state has been pushed into massive debt, in part by commitments to government worker unions.

Who Knew? Turned Out Batman Shooter Was Weird

File this way under the 'already knew that' column. Turns out that the Aurora, Colorado movie theater shooter James Holmes was a weirdo with few (read no) friends.

And his former girlfriend wasn't impressed, either:



Faculty quickly began emailing with each other and friends about the news. Larry Hunter, who is listed as director of the Center for Computational Bioscience, was asked about the shooting by a friend. "Yeah, he was a grad student here, and, it turns out, had a brief romantic relationship with one of the grad students in my program last fall," Hunter wrote. "She, fortunately, it turns out is in India right now."
"She knows," Hunter added, "and is pretty freaked out."

Allen West: "Lincoln Only Served One Term..."

HT: Breitbart

Former U.S. Congressman and Lt. Colonel Allen West refused to close the door on his political career during an interview with NPR last Friday, but one comment has caught the Conservative movement by storm: "...Abraham Lincoln only served one term in Congress, too."

Then-Congressman West addressing CPAC
The implied meaning, that Lincoln went from a single term in the House to the highest office in America, is rather hard to miss, especially within circles that had long shot hopes of the outspoken Congressman receiving the Vice-Presidential nomination early this year.

However, I will throw a little cold water on their fire, as Abraham Lincoln was known as a great orator and a leader in one of the most important questions of our time, while West, albeit a strong military man in his own right, is one of many voices fighting to lead in today's GOP, and many in the establishment view him as too incendiary to trust with a national speakerphone.

Regardless, the thought of a 2016 West run is quite interesting and I would definitely welcome a campaign from this American war hero and all-around bad ass.

Why Did Jovan Belcher Kill Himself?

A sad story:

The Chiefs have been ravaged by injuries, lead the league in turnovers, can't settle on a quarterback and are dealing with a full-fledged fan rebellion.
Things have been so bad this season that Crennel fired himself as defensive coordinator. The Twitter account for a fan group known as "Save Our Chiefs" recently surpassed 80,000 followers, about 17,000 more than the announced crowd at a recent game.
Belcher, an undrafted player out of Maine and native of West Babylon, N.Y., on Long Island, had started 44 of 59 games in his four seasons for the Chiefs, recording a career-high 61 tackles in 2011.

Congress Looks to Eliminate $1 Bill

From ABC:
American consumers have shown about as much appetite for the $1 coin as kids do their spinach. They may not know what's best for them either. Congressional auditors say doing away with dollar bills entirely and replacing them with dollar coins could save taxpayers some $4.4 billion over the next 30 years.

Vending machine operators have long championed the use of $1 coins because they don't jam the machines, cutting down on repair costs and lost sales. But most people don't seem to like carrying them. In the past five years, the U.S. Mint has produced 2.4 billion Presidential $1 coins. Most are stored by the Federal Reserve, and production was suspended about a year ago.

The latest projection from the Government Accountability Office on the potential savings from switching to dollar coins entirely comes as lawmakers begin exploring new ways for the government to save money by changing the money itself.
Good-bye, George?

Finding the Best Ways to Meet People

In today's bustling world, it is not always an easy thing to meet new people or find the people that you may have something in common with. When we are able to find people that we can relate to or have many of the same interests or hobbies, it is a lot easier to find a way to build that relationship, especially if they are more similar to us. But to get to that point of building a friendship or something more, you have to be able to meet them in the first place, which is a great way to open up and expand your social circle and how you can speak to people from around the world. With so many options, what is holding you back from finding new people and finding similar hobbies and interests?

With all of the ways you can meet people, there are many options out there for you, of course. You can speak to people down at the local park or meet new folks at the bars in town. Of course, there are options out there for just about everyone, but what if those places are not for you? What if you are always at the home or office and find yourself unable to get out there as much as you want. There are online chances to get to know people, including ways for you to broadcast yourself. You can broadcast yourself in the lobby or invite people into a private chat where you can get to know them better. There are many options out there to expand your social life. With some research you can see which ones may work for you and where your social circle is headed. Do your research and prepare where you want to go and where you may be headed. You may be surprised!

Who Does He Say That He Is?

People learn by moving from the known to the unknown.  An analogy inherently proposes the idea, that if things agree in some respect they probably agree in others.  Secular prophecy uses knowledge of the past and the present to predict the future.  The past is the womb of the present and the present is the History of the Future.  As the past may be interpreted and the present may be misunderstood the future is never certain.  Platitudes may outline the shape of something, but they can never define anything.

If Michelle is like Marie Antoinette to whom shall we compare Barack?  The thought that he’s Louis XVI is unthinkable.  George III is too easy.  All of the megalomaniacs or despots of the twentieth century would be politically incorrect in the extreme.  Some would be considered too far left and some too far right though in reality the extreme on both sides meet at the intersection of totalitarianism and brutality.  Since he rode a wave of secular messianic fever into power and since he won a second term due to the devotion of his disciples perhaps an appropriate paraphrase from the Good Book would be, “Who does he say that he is?”

First, who do others say Mr. Obama reminds them of?

His rapid supporters have finally gone the extra mile.  During his first presidential campaign they merely treated him as if he was their messiah.  After his second victory they are shouting it from the roof tops.  At the BET Soul Train Awards show Oscar-winning actor Jamie Foxx actually called Barack Obama "our lord and savior."  Some will say he’s a comedian and this was said tongue in cheek.  From the reaction of the crowd it was received like a proclamation from Mount Sinai.  The wild cheering brought down the house.  If this isn’t a cult of personality what is?

I heard a woman who fled Venezuela to escape Hugo Chavez and his democratic revolution crying, “Obama is doing the same things as Chavez!  He’s following the same path, going to the same place, but now we have nowhere to run.”   Someone who escaped the USSR told me, “I’ve seen all this before. Obama is like Nikita Khrushchev. He says he brings hope and change but really he’s just blaming the past because he hopes to rule the present while destroying the hope of the future.”  According to an escapee of East Germany, “Obama is like Leonid Brezhnev. He promises security, pensions and benefits but all he brings are taxes, regulations and more bureaucrats, always more bureaucrats.”  

I cannot bring myself to compare an American President to Hitler, Stalin, Mao, not even to Mussolini.  To who shall I compare this man who brings the crest of the century-long Progressive wave crashing against the American experiment?  Instead of doing the comparing myself let’s explore who he and his unpaid media arm in the Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Press compare himself to.

President Obama announced his run for the presidency in Springfield, Illinois on the steps of the old state capitol building.  Choosing a setting in Springfield where Abraham Lincoln once gave a speech condemning slavery and calling for the United States to unite prompted the Progressives at ABC News to observe, “Springfield allowed Obama to immodestly and continuously compare himself to Lincoln.”

Immediately after his first victory the cover of Time magazine depicted the President-elect as FDR riding in an open car with his trademark cigarette holder clamped tightly in his smile.  So we know his promoters in the press want us to compare him to the four term president-for-life who until now has been the epitome of a Progressive president.  But does President Obama make the comparison himself?  According to Politico, “President Barack Obama compared himself to FDR.”  What does History tell us about FDR? Major portions of his New Deal were declared unconstitutional, many economists believe  his policies prolonged the Great Depression, his advisor Alger Hiss really was a communist spy, and at Yalta Roosevelt gave Poland, whose freedom World War II was fought to preserve, to Stalin who initially invaded the country as an ally of Hitler.  If we forget the facts I guess comparing yourself to FDR is a good thing. 

During his first campaign the Washington Post said that Mr. Obama, “Sells Himself as the New JFK.”  At the time other news outlets noted, fellow Progressive’s disputed the comparison using the headline, “Hillary to Obama: You're No JFK.”  Undeterred Mr. Obama continued to cast himself as the successor to Camelot.  In a  review of his first term we could agree his glorious adventure in Libya as revealed in Benghazi makes him the rightful heir to such shameful military adventures as the Bay of Pigs or his much proclaimed victory over Al Qaeda to such questionable victories as the Cuban Missile Crisis.  Turning to JFK’s most memorable phrase Mr. Obama, as any good Harvard trained lawyer would do, has parsed the meaning of “ask not what your country can do for you - ask what you can do for your country.”  In Progressive newspeak this becomes, “If you’re a non-tax payer let me tell you what I’m going to do for you –if you’re a tax payer let me tell you what I’m going to do to you.”

President Obama also compares himself to the icon of the anti-Progressives: Ronald Reagan.  According to Politico in an interview with a print journalist the President, “made the case that his movement is as much about a national moment as about him as a ‘singular’ individual” also noting “he drew a rather odd analogy for a Democrat: Ronald Reagan.”  President Reagan told us, “government is not the solution to our problems; government is the problem.”  President Obama told us, “Only Government Can Fix the Economy.”  President Ragan told us, “We are today, the last best hope of man on earth.”  President Obama told us, “America is no longer what it could be, what it once was.”  That’s not even comparing apples to oranges it’s more like comparing truth to fiction, good to bad, or freedom to dependency.

All the people mentioned above who escaped socialism, left homes, families, and countries seeking freedom remind me of something else Ronald Reagan said, “If we lose freedom here, there is no place to escape to. This is the last stand on Earth.” 

The Americans devoted to constitutionally limited government, personal liberty, and economic freedom may have lost a battle.  We may finally accept that we have become a minority in our own land.  However, we will never accept serfdom and we will never accept the permanent imposition of socialism in the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Now is the time for all good citizens to come to the aid of their country.  Educate yourself regarding the History of our Republic.  Learn so that you may teach.  We must educate new generations of patriots to carry the torch so that the light of freedom is never extinguished.  A slender majority of our fellow voting citizens may have chosen the path of central-planning and collectivism.  Most through ignorance, some through avarice, and a few through pure evil have diverted the American experiment into an economic and political dead-end, but like all dead ends it will eventually end.  The empires of looters always collapse when the loot runs out and another day will dawn.

That same Good Book tells us, “the evil man has no future; the lamp of the wicked will be put out.”  And it also promises, “I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”  So the Progressives may have followed their play book to a worldly victory.  I don’t know about you, but I’m going to follow that Good Book to an eternal one.

Keep the faith.  Keep the Peace.  We shall overcome.

Map: Ex-Soviet Union Bloc Very Unhappy


Over the last few years the polling organization Gallup has been tracking the "happiness" of nations all over the world, and their just released survey results (and the following map that was created by the Washington Post's Max Fisher) is quite telling...

Notice the concentration of the least emotional/unhappy nations in the world?

Russia, Kazakhstan, Ukraine, Belarus and other ex-members of the former Soviet Union all rank very highly on the wrong end of Gallup's survey, while Western Europe and the America's are all content with life and generally happy people.

I wonder if this has anything to do with the soul crushing, godless Communism that was imposed on the Soviet bloc for more then four decades?

U.N. Vote on Palestinian Statehood


With the Israelis and Hamas just concluding a brief conflict that resulted in heavy losses for the latter and a diplomatic victory for Egypt's new government, the region is once again the center of everyone's focus as the U.N. General Assembly votes on Palestinian statehood this afternoon.

A move that could further embroil the two foes in hostile conflict, as the U.N.'s expected vote of approval would grant a governing entity of terrorists nationhood equal to that of Israel, a peaceful country that has only responded aggressively after exhausting all efforts of restraint and patience.

Which would allow the terrorists, who have sworn Israel's death and destruction as their primary mission, to use international law against their enemies the next time they use a school as a shield, hiding their rocket launchers, and the IDF has no choice but to engage because their children are under constant indiscriminate barrage.

The vote is not expected to be close, as the international body is well known for both its strong anti-Jewish postulations and resolutions and equally strong support for the plight of the occupied lands, however, the votes of certain western nations could tell us a lot about how many friends Israel really has for when the next big conflict emerges. 

Stay tuned for the U.N.'s vote...

200,000 in New Egypt Protests Against Morsi

 The protests in Egypt appear to be growing with now 200,000 marching against Islamic Brotherhood dictator-lite Mohammed Morsi.


“The people want to bring down the regime!” and “erhal, erhal” — Arabic for “leave, leave” — rang out across the plaza, this time directed at Egypt’s first freely elected president. 

What is even more troubling is the violence:

 Clashes broke out in several cities, with Morsi’s opponents attacking Brotherhood offices, setting fire to at least one. Protesters and Brotherhood members pelted each other with stones and firebombs in the Nile Delta city of Mahalla el-Kobra, leaving at least 100 people injured.

“Power has exposed the Brotherhood. We discovered their true face,” said Laila Salah, a housewife at the Tahrir protest who said she voted for Morsi in last summer’s presidential election. After Mubarak, she said, Egyptians would no longer accept being ruled by an autocrat.
 Perhaps people in the West should have paid attention to the MB's slogan: Islam is the Solution.

Finding the Life Insurance You Need

Finding the Life Insurance You Need
Your Future and Your Family's Future Ready for Tomorrow

Today I got a copy of my annual report on my pension. There was a lot in there that I had figured was coming: how much I had earned and how the retirement system was set up and how it would be when I retire. However, sticking out on the very first page was the discussion of a death benefit and how my loved ones could use it in case of the inevitable. Obviously, we all hope that that day is a long, long way off and will not be an issue for a long time.



But, we do not know when and where the time of our leaving could be. You owe it to yourself but more importantly your family to find out as much as you can about life insurance and how it could help you and your loved ones in case of an accident or another unexpected event. Taking a look at every option can make sure that you have what you and your family would need to meet what could help them get through a very difficult time. You owe it to them to research and find out what would be best for you and them. Make sure that you do and get the best deal and the best terms you can.

Pharaoh Morsi: Egypt's First "Democratic" President Decrees Himself Power


HT: BBC News

With the country lacking a functional parliament, or operational constitution, Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi is taking unpopular steps by decreeing himself more power to fill the vacuum and assaulting the judiciary's independence by a series of decrees in recent days that have sparked protests.

The decrees include firing his prosecutor general on Thursday; giving himself full power to appoint a replacement; barring any legal challenges to his decisions or laws, and barring any court from disbanding the constituent assembly responsible for drawing the constitution.

So this is how the first democratically elected President in Egyptian history acts... By granting himself more powers by executive fiat and prohibiting any challenge to his powers?

The United States and international observers are understandably worried by Morsi's decrees, as it begs the question if removing the dictatorial, yet reliably moderate Hosni Mubarak in favor of a new "democratic" Egypt led by the seemingly similar authoritative, and this time Islamist inclined Mursi was the right decision.

Before there were the evil Kings of Europe, or the genocidal loons of the twentieth century, there were the pharaohs of Egypt.. Your quintessential example of the supposed divine right to lead and absolute totalitarianism, and if Egypt's first foray into democracy is any indicator, it appears they will follow their ancestors once more and be slaves.

What say you?
