Me thinks he's just joshin' with us. He's really a closet democrat just havin' a little fun, stirrin' things up, seein' how we react to all the slop he can dig up.
Several years ago while exploring the new computer on my desk and the bookmarks that were preloaded, I found a site under the general classification of "Business". Since I have long been interested in becoming a better sales person by becoming a better person, I checked it out. That began a study for me that has been the cornerstone for my peace of mind.
In a time where we seem to be strongly divided in our opinions of what our problems are as a nation and who should be responsible for the solutions and what those solutions should be, I am sharing a publication which you can take or leave.
Don't just google it and take someone else's opinion that it is a cult or scam. For me it has been another piece of the puzzle that is all human wisdom. Maybe just a piece of sky.
Just read it.
Baia I'm glad this helps you, but after having read this, I'm wondering if Mr. Howard is telling you anything that you don't already know. I don't understand the need to send people money just to hear the words, "Sit back, take a deep breath and observe the world...then make your own choices." And I really don't understand the presumption of some people thinking they know more about you, your behavior or your spirituality than you do. In my eyes this is a commercial.
Does reading this remind you to think about common sense and the appropriateness of your actions? Is it affirming? Maybe I just don't get it.
I'm very spiritual, I read the Bible and consider what is written. I find it therapeutic and I like hearing about how others came into their own belief systems, I also like listening to my minister speak, but I am not into evangelicalism or believe in self-appointed prophets who pretend to have more wisdom than anyone else.
Is it a 'feel good' kind of thing? Do you think that someone who sends $60.00, $90.00 or even $ 4.00 gets their money's worth.
Maybe you can help me understand.
Thanks for your consideration and pointed questions.
I am not evangelical either although I grew up in an evangelical Christian environment. When I first read about this philosophical approach, as I said, it was on the internet in a link on a list of business bookmarks. The books that are advertised for sale in the newsletter are also available at the library for free as well. I have never attended any gathering about this philosophy nor have I ever met anyone else who tried to tell me about it. I've only ever met one person who spontaneously shared the fact that he knew of it and that it had changed his life.
I will make a silly analogy here that might explain how it worked for me. It is like I stopped banging my head against the wall and my headache went away.
I think that reading this newsletter (which I receive at no charge) reminds me about common sense and the appropriateness of my actions. Yes, it is affirming, too. Mr. Howard never claimed to know more than anyone else, but he did have a down-to-earth way of explaining truths in ordinary language. I liked the way he encouraged people to question rather than just accept what people who seemed to have power tell us to believe. The reason I posted it here was because there was an article about what I will call fear-mongering and hysteria that I thought was interesting in the context of this discussion.
I spent a lot of my life being overly responsible and worrying about "what if?" I still slip into anxiety and doubt sometimes. It is my strong personal belief that no single philosopher speaks to each and every person. We each need to find a voice that speaks to us in a language that we can understand. You, Faye, have found comfort and guidance as you have shared and I am grateful that you have. What I have shared is just a piece of one of the many ways I find comfort and guidance.
Thanks Baia. That does help a little.
Former White House speechwriter John L. Perry has courted controversy by suggesting that the U.S. Military, upholding their oath to defend the Constitution against domestic enemies, could stage a bloodless coup to oust President Obama.
In an article originally posted on the Newsmax website, Perry wrote, “There is a remote, although gaining, possibility America’s military will intervene as a last resort to resolve the “Obama problem.” Don’t dismiss it as unrealistic.”
Despite the fact that Perry was not explicitly advocating such a coup, Newsmax later removed the article to ensure it “was not misinterpreted”.
The article outlines how military officers, outraged at Obama’s “trampling” on the Constitution, nationalization of American institutions, rising deficits, unemployment and taxes, could peaceably seize power from the “radical-left commissars” of the Obama administration.
“Military intervention is what Obama’s exponentially accelerating agenda for “fundamental change” toward a Marxist state is inviting upon America. A coup is not an ideal option, but Obama’s radical ideal is not acceptable or reversible,” writes Perry.
It is important to stress that Perry is not a Neo-Con, he worked under the Democratic administrations of Lyndon Johnson and Jimmy Carter.
Perry warns that America could be unrecognizable by 2012, prompting a coup to “restore and defend the Constitution,” a prospect that is “weighing heavily on the intellect and conscience of America’s military leadership,” he writes.
Perry says that such a move could be accelerated if Israel were to bomb Iran, causing the Middle East to explode and a massive destabilization of the free world.
Of course, the unlikely staging of a military coup could be just another ruse to implement martial law in the aftermath of what would undoubtedly ensue – mass civil unrest and a potential breakdown of society.
More and more credible analysts are predicting that the United States could collapse in a Soviet-style breakdown within the next few years. In such a scenario, the vacuum of power created would leave the door open for the imposition of an even greater tyranny than we are witnessing today with Obama’s big government Socialist agenda.
It is far more likely that a military coup, even if it began as a genuine effort to “restore the Constitution,” or “solve the Obama problem,” would be hijacked and transformed into an effort to subjugate the entire country under a militarized police state to an even greater extent than it is now.
The more probable scenario is the one that was outlined by Tommy Franks in a 2003 interview with the men’s lifestyle magazine Cigar Aficionado, where a military form of government would be implemented in the aftermath of a huge terror attack that kills millions.
Franks predicted that another mass casualty terror attack would occur that would cause the “population to question our own Constitution and to begin to militarize our country in order to avoid a repeat of another mass, casualty-producing event. Which in fact, then begins to unravel the fabric of our Constitution.”
You said it, Bob. What is there left? It must be like living on a scary carnival ride.
With scary clowns jumping out.
