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 ways to entertain yourself can be a challenge, especially as time goes on and the world changes. With a job, a family, and the many other responsibilities of life, there are ways that people cannot even think of to make sure that they have what they need or want while also preserving their health. With so many options out there to see what there are to find, you can think that the choices are dizzying. This is why you can make the time to do the research to see what is out there and how you can use it to make the best decision. You will be able to find just what you have been looking for all along.

This can be the case if you are looking for an alternative to traditional tobacco smoking. Tobacco cigarettes can be dirty and smelly and not right for all people. If you are looking for a way to quit and find a way to get away from cigarettes, then you can read about e cigarettes and what they could do for you or a loved one that smokes. You can also find vapor cigarette reviews to see what other people are saying and what you may be missing. This way you can have a more informed decision on what you may decide to do.

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?

What say you?

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.
