Domestic Terrorism…Food for Thought

with 2 comments

Right off the top here, I want to be specific.  This post is not about Islamic Jihad.  I’m strictly talking about terrorism from within our own borders.  This terrorist network lives among us.  They are our neighbors, and we may not even know it.  We often talk, for the past ten years, about the atrocity visited upon our nation when foreign terrorists struck our nation on September 11, 2001.  These people stole nearly 3,000 lives in a one time attack.  The response from our Nation was swift and deliberate.  We have invested hundreds of billions of dollars to combat that evil at its source.  We have sacrificed thousands of brave American lives in the pursuit of justice.  Yet absolutely nothing is done about a form of legal domestic terrorism that murders nearly 1,000 people every single day.  In fact, not only are we not fighting this domestic terrorism, our Federal Government and State Governments are paying for it.  Shoot, they are even prosecuting those who would stand against it.

According to Federal statistics, Planned Parenthood committed over 330,000 abortions last year alone.  That is a rate of nearly 1,000 people a day that are killed in what should be the safety of their mothers womb.  Maybe the numers are too big to grasp, so I’ve decided to break it down in a way most people can understand.

Imagine Sunday afternoon.  The Dallas Cowboys are playing in a packed house.  Their stadium holds 80,000 fans.  Now imagine that stadium filled to capacity more than 3 1/2 times over.  What if a terrorist of foreign origin successfully detonated a bomb that in an instant wiped out all those people?  You see how it eclipses 9/11 by more than 100 times.  Yet we do nothing.

Her in Charlotte, North Carolina, our dismal Carolina Panthers play in Bank of America stadium.  This stadium, if it were ever to be packed, holds about 73,000 fans.  It would take almost 5 capacity crowds slaughtered to equal what Planned Parenthood murders in a single year.

Not a football fan?  Let me break it down in terms of other sports for this to hit home.  Don’t coward out on me…stick with this.  Laker fans, when they go for an NBA game at the Staples center in LA hear this.  That arena only holds a little over 18,000 fans.  That would take nearly 18 full capacity crowds to be executed in order to equal the number of babies that are mutilated each year.

Hockey fan?  My Boston Bruins play at the Fleet Center in Boston.  Capacity there is about the same as the Staples center.  Do you understand the magnitude of this atrocity?

Quit looking at ultrasound images and think of stadiums full of people.  What is being killed isn’t a fuzzy image on a computer screen.  It is a person, created by God.  A person that one day would grow up to be a person in one of those seats.  A person with a job, home, that gives to charity, that loves, that contribuetes to society and the economy, that has family and is deserving of the right to exist just as each person we’ve already looked at.

You and I, as taxpayers are funding the murder that on an annual basis is 100 times worse than 9/11.  We’re doing it every year.  We are doing nothing to stop it.  Call on your local Congressional and Senate leaders to stop funding abortions with yourm oney now!  All it takes for evil men to succeed, is for good men to do nothing.

Can You Say, “Oops!”

As you may have heard on the news, the power went out for about 3 million people in the Los Angeles and surrounding areas.  Traffic was a chaotic mess due to the fact that the traffic lights were out.  People were trapped in elevators, (escalator riders were presumably safe).  Air conditioning went out resulting in a multitude of sweaty, grumpy Southern Californians.  Plus, one would imagine the horror of those relying on medical machines to keep them alive at home.  What happened?  A terrorist attack?  Earthquake?  Lightning strike?  Car crash into a telephone pole?  What?!  Nope, none of the above.  An electrical worker doing some sort of project in a sub-station apparently, snipped the wrong cable.  Oopsie!

Can you possibly imagine the sick feeling in the pit of that man’s stomach when he realized his error?  How would you like to be at his next company review?  Imagine the conversation when he got home to his wife and peanutbutter and jelly by candlelight.  “how was your day hone?”  Sounds like Homer Simpson is an actual power company employee.  I only hope Mr. Burns threw him to the hounds!

Here’s what I don’t get.  It was reported that 2 California nuclear power plants were taken offline due to the lack of electricity.  What?!?!?  I know I’m no electrical engineer, nor nuclear scientist, but, huh?  Isn’t it the nuclear power plant that is creating the power in the first place?  Do you mean to tell me, they can’t just stretch an extension cord from some power strip into the reactor?  Holy cow that’s weird.  That’s kind of like… uh, well, it’s sort of like….  well, it’s just weird that’s all!  Springfield, you’ve met your match.

I think I’m going to apply for licensing to start my own nuclear power plant somewhere.  Then, I think I will fail to pay my electric bill.  What are they gonna do, cut me off?  Then millions will lose their power!?  I think I have just devised the greatest get rich quick scheme ever!  All of you who are with me, send me your piggy banks and we’ll go in this together.  No?  Any takers?  I’ve got a feeling I’ll have to go this one alone…

As an aside…I want to let you know I’m pretty excited about this weeks issue of my newsletter.  I wrote an article personally for this issue where I discuss “The MIA Principle.”  It’s a great success strategy and a proven one at that.  Sign up for it…it’s FREE, and you’ll also get my FREE audio presentation, “7Keys to Overcome Every Life Challenge”.    My site is http://www.winatlife.us

God Bless all the families who are mourning the loss of loved ones this 9/11.  May God have mercy on us all.

Elvis Update: Yep, Still Dead

with 2 comments

On this day, August 16, 1977, Elvis Presley officially ‘left the building’ for good.  It is amazing to me that he died 34 years ago today.  Not that I am keeping track or anything, personally, no sweat off my brow.  I just heard the news segment whilest sipping my morning cup of crack, more commonly referred to as coffee.  I almost blew some of this hot concoction out my nose when I heard that his estate made over $60 Million dollars last year.  That’s a hunk-a-hunk of burning cashola.

As far as anyone making more annual income 34 years after they’re dead, than I most likely will make in my entire life is somewhat disturbing.  Now, I’m sure there are many lessons to be learned here, but, I’m not sure how many of them I can actually apply to my own life.  The moral of the story is that royalty income is the way to go.  I did write that one book in 2006 that didn’t quite make me rich.  It is a bit of motivation to get cracking on finishing up book #2.  Still, I’m not sure the possibility is there to rise to the level of the Elvis maching, but, a guy’s gotta try.

With respect to the Elvis-freak nutjobs out there, I have a few things to say.  I get the whole ‘thing.’  I know he was ahead of his time.  I understand the women thought he was ‘dreamy.’  The old story of the women wanted to ‘with’ him, and the men wanted to ‘be’ him.  But for the love of Pete (whoever that is), come on already.  The guy has been dead for longer than Katy Perry has been alive.  He died with his pants around his ankles.  Kind of appropriate that the ‘king’ died on his throne though!  ha ha!  You would be hard pressed to manage to die in a more embarassing state, but, then again, how was that dude Rober Caradene and Michael Hutchins of INXS found?  Ok, there are worse ways, but I just hope he wiped first.  That’s all i’m saying.  And was there ever an interview with the EMT first on the scene?  I believe I would pay money to hear that interview.

I think that folks that flock to Graceland, don the Elvis garb and sport those lamb chop sideburns need to really find a new hobby.  I wonder what the demographics are with respect to these people and income, religion and social status.  I can’t imagine you’d ever see Donald Trump sneaking into one of these events with cheesy sunglasses, white suit, bell bottoms and scarfs-a-plenty.  People make fun of folks like me for being what they call, ‘Jesus freaks.’  I’m ok with that though.  If I’m gonna be labeled a freak, might as well be over the Son of God, a man who was also God, who changed the world forever, who is the only way to enter heaven, etc.  What good is being an ‘Elvis freak?’  Plus you don’t see too many people dressing in robes and wearing thong sandals with clip-on beards walking around singing Hebrew praise tunes… do you?

Anyway, Elvis, gotta admit, on the rare occasion I actually hear one of your old tunes, I do tap a toe every now and then.  I’m glad you grew up in a Pentacostal church, and even made a few Gospel albums.  I just hope for your sake, in the midst of your drug induced haze that you called out to the God of your youth before you hit the floor.  I think you’d make a heck of a worship leader in heaven.  Hope to see you there.

Thank you very much.
