Wed Jan 8th Todays News

One can almost hear Shirley Bassey belting out in tribute to Al Gore "Mr Cold Finger" .. his heart is cold. For him to profit, the poorest die miserable deaths of deprivation when their basic needs are not met. Important resources, some $trillion internationally, is spent trying to reduce production world wide. This skews wealth away from the poorest .. which is the exact opposite of what socialists claim they want, but then their understanding of economics is weak. Economics is not a zero sum game where wealth can be redistributed from the rich and the economic pie is static in size. Wealth redistribution from rich to poor weakens investment and does not help the poor. Paradoxically, for socialists, secure wealth for the rich makes poor people better off. But in those circumstances, socialists find it hard to exploit the poor for political power. So it is in the interests of socialists to keep poor people poor.

"My general formula for my students is ‘Follow your bliss.’ Find where it is, and don’t be afraid to follow it … If the work you are doing is the work that you chose to do because you are enjoying it, that’s it. But if you think, 'Oh no, I couldn’t do that!' that’s the dragon locking you in. 'No, no, I couldn’t be a writer,' or 'No, no, I couldn’t possibly be doing what So-and-so is doing.' 

"Any world is a valid world if it’s alive. The thing to do is to bring life to it, and the only way to do that is to find in your own case where the life is and become alive yourself."

Today in Rangoon, hundreds of Burmese journalists protested the unjust sentencing of a local reporter. Said organizer Myint Kyaw: "If we keep silent about this case, it will set a precedent and more journalists may be imprisoned later in similar circumstances under criminal charges.”

In related news, the Burmese government is warning a local journal that published pieces critical of President Thein Sein to abide by so-called "media ethics."

Taking the video's figures, the top 1% have 40% of assets. But only get 24% of income from those assets. That is because they shoulder the burden of investment. The poorest spend everything they get. The richer spend many times more than that. If you squeeze the rich, you reduce investment and make more people poor. Luckily, it isn't a zero sum game where if you take from one and give to the other you end up with the same amount, more evenly divided .. you end up with less. Wealth creation means investment grows the whole asset list, and the poor get more. Socialism is seductive, but it sucks in practice. The result of ALP government is more poverty. And statistics shows that from past administrations. - ed

Because Your Wife DOES NOT WORK....???"

The following are Questions and Answers between Husband (H) and A Psychologist:

P : What do you do for a living Mr. Bandy?
H : I work as an Accountant in a Bank.

P : Your Wife ?
H : She doesn't work. She's a Housewife only.

P : Who makes breakfast for your family in the morning?
H : My Wife, because she doesn't work.

P : At what time does your wife wake up for making breakfast?
H : She wakes up at around 5 am because she cleans the house first before making breakfast.

P : How do your kids go to school?
H : My wife takes them to school, because she doesn't work.

P : After taking your kids to school, what does she do?
H : She goes to the market, then goes back home for cooking and laundry. You know, she doesn't work.

P : In the evening, after you go back home from office, what do you do?
H : Take rest, because i'm tired due to all day works.

P : What does your wife do then?
H : She prepares meals, serving our kids, preparing meals for me and cleaning the dishes, cleaning the house then taking kids to bed.

From the story above, who do you think works more???

The daily routines of your wives commence from early morning to late at night. That is called 'DOESN'T WORK'??!!

Yes, Being Housewives do not need Certificate of Study, even High Position, but their ROLE/PART is very important!

Appreciate your wives. Because their sacrifices are uncountable. This should be a reminder and reflection for all of us to understand and appreciate each others roles.
All about a WOMAN ....

When she is quiet, millions of things are running in her mind.

When she stares at you, she is wondering why she loves you so much in spite of being taken for granted.

When she says I will stand by you, she will stand by you like a rock.
Never hurt her or take her wrong or for granted...

Forward to every woman to make her smile and to every man to make him realize a woman's worth.

The Christian and Muslim Arab population in Jerusalem has never grown faster than it has since Israel reunified the city. From 1967 to 2011, the Arab population has grown at a 3.4% compounded annual growth rate (CAGR). By comparison, under Ottoman rule from 1885 to 1922, the Arab population grew at a 0.9% CAGR, meaning no Arabs moved to the city and there were barely more births than deaths. But the lying Abbas will tell you that Israel is "ethnically cleansing" Jerusalem of Arabs.

A word to the wise, to my photographer friends out there who might be easily impressed by an offer from a major magazine company...

All I have to say is, as a struggling semi pro photographer, I am slack jawed agast at what is becoming more and more of a trend. This magazine company who pulls in well over one hundred and fifty million dollars profit a year doesn't want to pay photographers who supply images.... Shame on them!

Change Your Song This Year 2014.
The Scripture says,"Unto You, O my Strength, I will sing praises; for God is my Defense, my Fortress, and High Tower, the God Who shows me mercy and steadfast love" (Psalm 59:17, AMP)

In the Bible, David had all kinds of challenges. People lied about him, accused him, and tried to kill him. In Psalm 59 he says, "My enemies are coming against me like vicious dogs trying to destroy me. But as for me, what am I going to do? I will sing about Your power. And I will shout for joy for You are my refuge, my place of safety in my day of distress." Do the same and they Lord will answer you in Jesus Name,Amen.

How To Achieve Intimacy With God.
1 Chronicles 28:9 says, “… If you seek him, he will be found by you; but if you forsake him, he will reject you forever.” What God wants from us is a genuine yearning for His presence in our lives. Not just in one area but in our entire being. God bless you.

Have Unshakable Confidence
The Scripture says,“So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded.”
(Hebrews 10:35, NIV)

Instead of being discouraged, get up in the morning and start thanking God that the answer is on the way. Instead of talking about how big the problem is, talk about how big your God is. Set your mind in one direction: victory, favor, healing, restoration. It may be taking a long time, but God didn’t bring you this far to leave you. You’ve seen Him do it in the past, and you know He will do it again in the future. You are fully persuaded because when you know your God, you have unshakeable confidence.God bless you.

Friend, 
The March for Life is scheduled for Wednesday, January 22 at Noon ET on the mall in Washington, DC.
Karen and I, along with some of our children, will join hundreds of thousands of pro-life Americans to march to the Supreme Court in support of life.
We hope you'll be there, too! 
If you would like to attend, please enter our Facebook contest to win a trip for two to Washington, DC on January 22. We'll provide roundtrip airfare and two nights' hotel accommodations for the winner and a guest, getting you close to the action of the March.  You have until January 15 to enter, and we'll announce our winner on January 16.  Click HERE to enter the contest.
I'd also like to invite you to join us for a coffee reception before the March between 8:30 AM ET and 10:30 AM ET at the Hyatt Regency on Capitol Hill.  If you'd like to attend, you must RSVP HERE to obtain your complimentary ticket.  At the conclusion of the reception, we'll make our way down to the March and gather under the Patriot Voices Defends Life banner at 11 AM ET. 
And if you don't know what the March for Life is all about, I encourage you to watch this short video from last year.  The March is an inspiring event where we can show our collective voice and stand for life in our nation's capitol.  You can also see our photo album from last year's March HERE.
And finally, in case you missed this, the RNC delayed the start of its winter meeting to accommodate the March for Life and ensure that RNC members could attend both the March and their meeting.  I think this is a terrific development, and I applaud Chairman Reince Priebus for standing for life.
Sincerely,
santorum-signature
Rick Santorum
P.S. Please sign up to receive March for Life updates by texting LIFE to 674-63.

Meet the Freudian slip: David Gregory interested to see how Obamacare ‘unravels’ in coming year

Yesterday on Meet the Press, David Gregory interviewed two doctors (named Cosgrove & Noseworthy, which I believe was also the title of a short-lived detective show on NBC in the 1980′s) about Obamacare, and at the end of the discussion Gregory had a fit of unintended accuracy...

Morning and Evening by Charles Spurgeon
January 7: Morning
"For me to live is Christ." - Philippians 1:21
The believer did not always live to Christ. He began to do so when God the Holy Spirit convinced him of sin, and when by grace he was brought to see the dying Saviour making a propitiation for his guilt. From the moment of the new and celestial birth the man begins to live to Christ. Jesus is to believers the one pearl of great price, for whom we are willing to part with all that we have. He has so completely won our love, that it beats alone for him; to his glory we would live, and in defence of his gospel we would die; he is the pattern of our life, and the model after which we would sculpture our character. Paul's words mean more than most men think; they imply that the aim and end of his life was Christ--nay, his life itself was Jesus. In the words of an ancient saint, he did eat, and drink, and sleep eternal life. Jesus was his very breath, the soul of his soul, the heart of his heart, the life of his life. Can you say, as a professing Christian, that you live up to this idea? Can you honestly say that for you to live is Christ? Your business--are you doing it for Christ? Is it not done for self- aggrandizement and for family advantage? Do you ask, "Is that a mean reason?" For the Christian it is. He professes to live for Christ; how can he live for another object without committing a spiritual adultery? Many there are who carry out this principle in some measure; but who is there that dare say that he hath lived wholly for Christ as the apostle did? Yet, this alone is the true life of a Christian--its source, its sustenance, its fashion, its end, all gathered up in one word--Christ Jesus. Lord, accept me; I here present myself, praying to live only in thee and to thee. Let me be as the bullock which stands between the plough and the altar, to work or to be sacrificed; and let my motto be, "Ready for either."
Evening
"My sister, my spouse." - Song of Solomon 4:12
Observe the sweet titles with which the heavenly Solomon with intense affection addresses his bride the church. "My sister, one near to me by ties of nature, partaker of the same sympathies. My spouse, nearest and dearest, united to me by the tenderest bands of love; my sweet companion, part of my own self. My sister, by my Incarnation, which makes me bone of thy bone and flesh of thy flesh; my spouse, by heavenly betrothal, in which I have espoused thee unto myself in righteousness. My sister, whom I knew of old, and over whom I watched from her earliest infancy; my spouse, taken from among the daughters, embraced by arms of love, and affianced unto me forever. See how true it is that our royal Kinsman is not ashamed of us, for he dwells with manifest delight upon this two-fold relationship. We have the word "my" twice in our version; as if Christ dwelt with rapture on his possession of his Church. "His delights were with the sons of men," because those sons of men were his own chosen ones. He, the Shepherd, sought the sheep, because they were his sheep; he has gone about "to seek and to save that which was lost," because that which was lost was his long before it was lost to itself or lost to him. The church is the exclusive portion of her Lord; none else may claim a partnership, or pretend to share her love. Jesus, thy church delights to have it so! Let every believing soul drink solace out of these wells. Soul! Christ is near to thee in ties of relationship; Christ is dear to thee in bonds of marriage union, and thou art dear to him; behold he grasps both of thy hands with both his own, saying, "My sister, my spouse." Mark the two sacred holdfasts by which thy Lord gets such a double hold of thee that he neither can nor will ever let thee go. Be not, O beloved, slow to return the hallowed flame of his love.

Magog 
[Mā'gŏg] - expansion or increase of family.
The second son of Japheth and founder of descendants occupying Magog, or Scythia (Gen. 10:21 Chron. 1:5Ezek. 38:2; 39:6;Rev. 20:8 ). The grandson of Noah was the father of those Josephus calls the "Magogites," and those the Greeks call "Scythians." When Ezekiel used the terms Gog and Magog, he used them in a historical sense of the future, referring to the Prince of the Northern Confederacy and his scope of rule, and they are thus literally to be understood. Gog is the symbolic designation for the future head of all nations embraced within the Northern Confederacy (Ezek. 38; 39 ). Magog is the symbolic territory covered. When the Apostle John uses the terms it is to describe the wicked on the earth at the close of Christ's millennial reign, and is thus to be symbolically understood. Gog and Magog in the Book of Revelation are to be thought of in a moral, not a geographical sense (Rev. 20:8).

The Three Visitors
1 The LORD appeared to Abraham near the great trees of Mamre while he was sitting at the entrance to his tent in the heat of the day. 2 Abraham looked up and saw three men standing nearby. When he saw them, he hurried from the entrance of his tent to meet them and bowed low to the ground....

Today's New Testament reading: Matthew 6:1-18

Giving to the Needy
1 "Be careful not to do your 'acts of righteousness' before men, to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.
2 "So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honored by men. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full. 3 But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, 4so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.
