FBI Pipe Bomber Clues

The pipe bomber who threatened the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day parade in Spokane, WA left three clues for the FBI to put together who and what was intended. The signs left were secret signs, and they were signs intended to be interpreted by intelligence.

Baby Boomers Starting To Retire

Well, now that us "Baby Boomers" are starting to retire a lot of people hold varying opinions on how this will effect the economy. It seems that there's a sense of worry over how Social Security and Medicare is going to hold up under the weight of paying out the benefits due those of us who placed our trust in these programs. I'm wishing to posit a point of view that I've seldom heard discussed. I'm proposing that having us "older folks" retire is one of the B

LIMBAUGH AND KIND - A NECESSARY EVIL

Limbaugh, Hannity, Beck, Levin, Savage, etc., are all integral to the evolution of human kind.
The regressive forces of existence fuel evolution. There could be no life without consequences that perpetuate counter activity.
Why acquire food to eat if there were no consequence of not eating?
Had it not been for the utterly disastrous presidency of G.W. Bush, Americans would not have legitimately elected its first African American president. The lions share of credit truly must be attributed to G.W.

Robert Reich nails it! About why corporations are not interested in American jobs -- and we don't have a jobs program.

He tells us that China is eating our lunch, gives us specific insights into how they're going it!

Dr. MLK Merged into Swiss Re

In 1947 Dr. Martin Luther King was a director of World Service Life.

In 1957 World Service Life changed its name to United American Life, not to be confused with American United Life, and Dr. Martin Luther King remained a director.

Before you buy from Amazon ... maybe take a look around ...

All of these products are perfectly legal to sell. Whether they should be is another post and debate. But I, for one, will not be buying anything from Amazon until they change their policies about selling parts for weapons of mass killing:

Oil and Gas Lobbyists

While most of the big oil and gas companies operate their own lobbying shops in Washington, the industry also farmed out a substantial amount of its work to some of Washington's largest and most influential lobbying firms.

2011 and the Power of the One

The year 2011 is upon us, and underway. This year presents us with an interesting set of synchronistic definitions, events, and possible implications.

DEFINITIONS:

The symbol of the vertical line, the number ONE, dates back to at least 30,000 BC with tally marks discovered on cave walls. The vertical line has always, in numerology, mathematics, symbology, and poetry represented:

God, Sun, Self, The Whole, The Unit, The Prime (although it is not a prime number), The Root, The Common, The Indivisible

Priority, it’s what Campaign Donation gets ya with Obama,….

The following quote was taken from page 64-65 of “AFTERSHOCK” a book by Robert Reich published by Knopf:

Mills B. Lane, Jr.

1961 is the 50-yr midpoint in a 100 yr. (Standard Oil/Haitian Bank) bond between 1911-2011. Sure enough in the great Book I found Mills B. Lane, Jr on the Citizens & Southern Advisory Board with Uncle L.H. Parris, inventor of the blue-jay spanker. Though it was his last year in banking. Bunny met Frank Kryder while living with Aunt Ep and Uncle L.H. in Atlanta.

What relative events to the bond might I have for the year 1961?

Corporate Traitors?

Considering the clear effect of the Cause, exporting jobs/factories overseas in massive numbers with the resultant deterioration in our economy, I think it is time to refine a framing of the worshiping of domestic personal/corporate greed as possible traitorious behavior. Drawing a fine but clear line is long past due. Primary loyalty to a foreign state over one's own is now an inadequate concept. Our economy is globally based, so must our concepts of ethics be globally based, as long as nation states exist.

Earth's credit card has been maxed out!

If Earth's resources were a credit card, we have already maxed out our entire allocation for this year. The think thank Global Footprint Network announced that August 19th was “Earth Overshoot Day,” meaning that all the resources we use after that day exceed what our planet can produce in a single year.
