It's a Business (pt 2) (tags)
Money can so easily change circumstances. Just a little bit can help ease the stress of worrying about how the rent or mortgage will be paid on any given month. A small amount extra can make the difference between getting your kid what they need for school or not, like a new or even used computer or some school clothes. With just a few extra in the way of cash, there may not have to be the monthly juggling act of figuring which bills to pay and which to put off. And making up such seemingly miniscule increments of ground regarding getting current on bills and/or debt can really help take a load off a person's mind, if only until the next paycheck. Most of us have been there, and if not probably will at some point or another in life.
Forced Regression (tags)
People navigating unusually trying circumstances often need to dig deep to come up with responses and solutions to those predicaments that are equally unconventional, in order to effectively navigate those circumstances. There are so many ways we can be tried in life, and not one of us experiences the exact same test, or experiences a duplicate test exactly the same way another person’s does. Individual and singular, there will always be something peculiar to who we are that is introduced into everything we do. Dealing with adversity is no different, and it can bring about new responses to situations many others have previously been through, due to our uniqueness as individuals.

Response to 'Leaked Zionist strategy Paper to counter BDS' By Zahir Ebrahim (tags)
A ruling state cannot be dictated to by other nations, but it can and does dictate to other nations, including to the world's sole superpower! Does the Jewsonly State of Israel fit that bill? When Zionistan can bomb and kill and burn men women and children with impunity in front of the entire world's powerless spectating eyes, when every Western statesman from the Queen to the President pays homage to them, especially their visit on Israel's 60th birthday bash while their own Bibles were being burnt downtown, and when their sugar-daddy owns/controls all the Western world's central banks thus controlling their national/supra-national laws, someone expects me to believe that Israel is afraid of the BDS movement?

What Muslims want (tags)
The Los Angeles County Human Rights Commission recently voted to nominate Dr. Maher Hathout to receive the John Allen Buggs Humanitarian Award. Of the fourteen member board, 5 were absent at the vote, 5 abstained and ONLY FOUR of the commissioners voted---all in favor of giving the award to Dr. Hathout. No other candidate was nominated or discussed. This despite the fact the award ceremony $100/plate dinner would be held Oct 5, during the month of Ramadan when Muslims traditionally fast. Despite this, the Muslim Public Affairs Council purchased $5000 of luncheon plates and did NOT ask the commission to postpone the award.

Secret Service Wants Blakboxvoting.org (tags)
April 29th, 2004 From www.blackboxvoting.org The Secret Service Wants Your Name: Will "subpeona" this web site By Bev Harris And by the way, they read every word. Hi, agent Mike. This "investigation" no longer passes the stink test. He says not to tell folks about the "investigating" they are doing. I have cooperated ad nauseum to this absurd investigation of the "VoteHere hack" which looks to me like it is something entirely different. I'll tell you what it looks like to me: A fishing expedition. It appears that they may be using the Patriot Act to circumvent some of the civil rights protections laid down in the 60s. You see, it is illegal for a government agency to go in and demand the list of all the members of a group. And you can't investigate leaks to journalists by going in and grabbing the reporter's computer. After the Diebold memos were leaked, and my web site was shut down, around the time of the California recall election, I started getting solicited to accept VoteHere software. I didn't bite, because it was obvious that this was an entrapment attempt. Okay, a word about VoteHere: This is the company that has no visible means of support. It doesn't seem to sell anything. Its board is heavily infested with defense industry types -- a former CIA director (Robert Gates, now heads George Bush School of Government); it had Admiral Bill Owens, also Vice-Chairman of SAIC and a member of the Defense Policy Board with Perle and Wolfowitz, a very close friend of Cheney; currently headed by former Washington Secretary of State Ralph Munro.

U.S. Weapons Of Mass Destruction Dropped On IraqDemolishes Case For War (tags)
..people will not be in awe of what they saw, they will be utterly appalled. With their own eyes, beamed directly into their homes, they saw cities being destroyed, and knew that many innocent civilians were inevitably being hurt or killed. For those who already hate America and its allies, including Britain, it was just the kind of advert they've been waiting for to justify more outrages. Perversely, a war supposed to be about removing weapons of mass destruction became an onslaught against the alleged culprit deploying it's own Weapons of Mass Destruction

Leftwing Defeatism (tags)
I am strong, and resolute, trying to find stratagems to beat the big guys at their own game, but guess what? It appears that only Republicans are allowed this sense of exhilaration these days! The attitude of my liberal minded friends? Expect nothing less than DEFEAT! They are generally angry, and whatever hostility that comes their way from others, the more they feel PERSECUTED. Enemies of the state. And when the FBI doesn't come knocking? They're a little miffed.

REVIEW #2: "Forcing God's Hand" -- Book re Christians Eager For Armageddon (tags)
"Anyone who wants to understand where the Religious Right is really heading ought to read this book…. The main premise of Forcing God's Hand is that Christians want the Holy Temple in Jerusalem rebuilt, knowing full well that it may bring on a world war. In fact, that's what they hope for, or more precisely, what they yearn for. They call it the Battle of Armageddon, which would end civilization as we know it. Of course, they believe that Jesus will rescue the faithful, and to hell with the rest of us."
