“Dole: Veterans’ sacrifices are not forgotten”


POLITICO

By Leigh Munsil

Former Sen. Bob Dole, a World War II veteran, says he worries about younger injured veterans at places like Walter Reed Army Medical Center, having himself lived for decades with a disability resulting from the wounds of war.

“When they’re there, they’re surrounded by people caring for them. Nurses, technicians, doctors,” the former Republican senator from Kansas and presidential candidate said. “I’ve often wondered if they realize what happens when they roll out their wheelchair and go home, if they understand in some cases this is forever. It’s a shock.”

Dole, now 90, joined CNN’s “State of the Union” in an interview aired Sunday, ahead of Veterans Day on Monday.

Having worked with veterans for years, he added that he knows that veterans of conflicts like Iraq and Afghanistan will be taken care of long after he’s gone.

“That’s what makes America so great,” he said. “We don’t forget those who fought for us.”

President Obama:

Dwight D. Eisenhower is known first for winning WWII.  His legacy as president is the creation of our system of super highways.  

Sir, please adopt INFRASTRUCTURE REPAIR AND INNOVATION as the signature of the Obama legacy.

 Our nation is crumbling as countries, like China, are investing in programs that bring their infrastructure up to 21st century technology and imagination.  We need a system of high-speed rail, state-of-the-art airports, a new secure electrical grid, true high-speed INTERNET for all Americans, etc.  Mr. President, please keep the energy ‘moving forward’ to improve, repair and innovate on American infrastructure.  —GoodOleWoody

Non-Partisan Congressional Tax Report Debunks Core Conservative Economic Theory-GOP Suppresses Study


What do you do when the Congressional Research Service, the completely non-partisan arm of the Library of Congress that has been advising Congress—and only Congress—on matters of policy and law for nearly a century,produces a research study

Mitch McConnell is as obstinate as a Kentucky tree stump! This is all he knows how to do. Obama’s mandate and the people will win over Mitch’s  ego.

 that finds absolutely no correlation between the top tax rates and economic growth, thereby destroying a key tenet of conservative economic theory?

If you are a Republican member of the United States Senate, you do everything in your power to suppress that report—particularly when it comes less than two months before a national election where your candidate is selling this very economic theory as the basis for his candidacy.

Initially released on September 14, 2012, the study—authored by Thomas Hungerford who is a specialist in public finance at the C.R.S.—correlated the historical fluctuations of the highest income tax rates and tax rates on capital gains dating back to World War II with the economic growth (or lack of the same) that followed.

The conclusion?

Lowering the tax rates on the wealthy and top earners in America do notappear to have any impact on the nation’s economic growth.

A MOMENT FOR DEVOTION


Trusting God‘s steadfast love…

“But blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence.”

-Jeremiah 17:7

Cornelia “Corrie” ten Boom (1892-1983) was a Dutch Christianwhose family members helped many Jews escape the Nazi Holocaust during World War II, eventually leading to her imprisonment in a concentration camp where many of her family members perished.

On trusting God even in dire circumstances, Corrie once said,”I remember one occasion when I was very discouraged. Everything around us (in the concentration camp) was dark, and there was darkness in my heart. I remember telling (my sister) Betsie that I thought God had forgotten us.”

Betsie, who later died in that camp, disagreed, reminding Corrie of God’s word: “For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is His steadfast love toward those who fear Him.”

“There is an ocean of God’s love available,” said Corrie,”…plenty for everyone. May God grant you never to doubt that victorious love – whatever the circumstances.”     

 

Prayer: Dear Lord, I trust you. I feel confidence and hope knowing that you have positive plans for my life, and that, even in my darkest moments, you are there. Amen.

Reflection: What circumstances have caused you to doubt God? How much do you trust him today?

Excerpt From the Witing of Nostradamus


NOSTRADAMUS 2012

Here are the sequence of the events leading to the Third World War and taking place during the war, based on the quatrains of Nostradamus and similar prophecies of other people. Eventually, the events may turn out to be very different. The comments below the quatrains are based on the current geopolitical scenario but some events which are not commensurate with the current situation may unfold later on. I will try to update as the situation changes.

[I.63] Pestilences extinguished, the world becomes smaller, for a long time the lands will be inhabited peacefully. People will travel safely through the sky, land and seas : then wars will start up again

This quatrain is considered to be the quatrain which indicate the start of WW-III. The scenario described in this quatrain is definitely a modern world scenario as is describes air travel. Air travel became commercially available only after WW-II. World is a small place now with ease of communications. Antibiotics helped man to get rid of many incurable diseases. But, Nostradamus says, wars will start up again. Alternatively, this might describe a period of unparalleled peace predicted after WW-III when the Great Monarch will reign, till the “End of the World”.

[IV.32] In those times and places that meat gives way to fish the law of commune will be opposed. The old order will hold strong, then removed from the scene, then all things common among friends put far behind

We have already seen this prophecy coming true. During the early 1990s in Soviet Union and Communist Europe (in those times and places), when the economic condition in these countries deteriorated (meat gave way to fish), Communism (the law of commune) was opposed by the people. The old leaders indeed tried to hold on but ultimately were removed from powers. Ultimately Communism (all things common among friends – equality among friends – comrades) collapsed. This prophecy was understood even before its accomplishment by many interpreters. But the instability caused by collapse of USSR and the resulting unipolar world may indirectly be the cause of the next great war.

[X.72] The year 1999 and September month, from the sky will come the great King of Terror. He will awaken the great king of the Angolmois. Before and after Mars to reign by good luck.

On 11th September 2001, terrorists crashed three jumbo jets on the World Trade Center twin towers in New York and on Pentagon bringing the towers down and causing damage to the Pentagon in the biggest ever terror attack this world has seen. “King of Terror”, the ultimate form of terrorism indeed came from the sky that day. The date on which this event took place was two years after 1999 but the quatrain describes the rest of the events wonderfully. It is said that prophesized dates often do not come true as the exact time of any event depends on human free will. “King of Angolmois“, probably means the King of America (Anglomois?) i.e the US President, who “awakened” to the scourge of terrorism and started his “War on Terror“. USA had good luck in the wars (Mars – the God of War) that followed in Afghanistan and in Iraq.

[IX.55] The horrible war which is being prepared in the West, The following year will come the pestilence So very horrible that young, old, nor beast (will survive), Blood, fire Mercury, Mars, Jupiter in France.

The attack against Iraq by USA, Britain and the western coalition forces, opposed by most Islamic countries, might turn out to be the precursor to the WW-III and will obviously be a war “prepared in the West“. Nostradamus says that in the following year, (2004?) pestilence will spread. This may point to a possible terrorist attack on the USA and other allied countries in the following year, this time using Biological, Chemical or Radiological weapons of mass destruction. The attack is likely to be on a gigantic proportion, leading to deaths in thousands. Maybe Anthrax and/or other Biological Warfare agents will spread out of control, in such a manner that people – young and old and also animals will die. Anthrax infects human and animals alike.
