He finally got a commission only job and has been struggling since.He played by the rules and still got screwed.I remember when I was out of work my brother gave $30 to go downtown with some friends to get dinner. I dont drink so I knew i had a few extra bucks and gave a panhandler $2 and he looked at it and said "that's it?". I started to go off on him to give it back then as i was barely ahead of being on the corner myself and then he was like "oh its good" But I wanted to punch him. And its ppl like that who ruin for ppl who played by the rules and need a hand. God Bless brother
I have learned not to carry any money because I was going broke fast. I live on a very tight budget and there is not a lot left over at the end of the month.

Last week a woman stuck her cup out at me and asked for money...happens all the time around here. If I take my walk through the market and then downtown I will be asked 4 or 5 times before I get back home.

I had my debit card with me and we were standing close to a Subway shop and I thought that I could feed her for 6-7 dollars...you know...6 inch sub/chips/drink. I took her in and told her to order her sandwhich...she did. The most expensive 12 inch that they sold and the largest drink that they had. Before I got out of there I had spent 13 dollars! More than I would have ever spent on my own lunch.

I was so disappointed that she took advantage. I tried to do something kind for her and...well...I was upset with her...then I became upset with myself. I knew...it wasn't about what she did...it was however all about that I wanted to help someone else. I just need to be a little smarter about how I do it!

I read most of the conversations that have gone on here about people on government assistance. I chose not to respond while it was so heated. I did do some research though.

During the campaign the figure got thrown about that around 49% of Americans were on some type of assistance. I was shocked...until I read further. That figure included people on Social Security...Medicare...etc. When you back those people out the figure was closer to 33%. Still too high but IMO more accurate.

I guess that we have to ask ourselves...does the solution lie with the government...with us as individuals...or a combination of the two.

Saturday as I came home from my walk I passed by an private agency that feeds those in need. There were literally hundreds of people wrapped around the block...some homeless...some just in need. I don't know what was going on that day because normally they are not open on weekends. I had a few spare minutes that I could have helped but this agency screens it's volunteers making it impossible to just drop in to help.

This same agency (funded totally by donations) also acts as an employment agency for the homeless. If you need someone to do some odd job for you such as yard work...help with moving...cleaning...you can call and they will send one of their clients out. They not only screen volunteers but also their clients that are on this work program.

I mention this agency because it is not federally funded.

Okay...I had more to say...you know me...never at a loss for words...but I am almost out of that 4000 character allotment! I am sure that you understand! LOL Maybe that is a sign that...I have said enough...

Just to let you know BTJ, I've been married 20 years so far so I do know what that is like... and you can tell me all you want that "20 years mariage doesn't cause any divisions or hates to each other" all you want but no matter how long one is married, if one doesn't stay up on that marriage, maintain it and complement one another's needs then that marriage could desolve even if they were married 37 years.

Yep...I feel his pain, could have wrote that myself, I've found past a certain age education be damned, either you have to become very entrepreneurial or work a few low skill(read low pay) jobs that you can grab to sustain. I do both.

Employers have pick of the litter now with so many out of work vying for the same positions. Makes it so much more difficult, can't tell you how many resumes I farmed out the last few years, had interviews, 2nd interviews...and come up empty handed.

Years ago I used to poo-poo the older fellows who I worked with complain of age discrimination, but now in their age bracket myself can report it is real. Done very subtly. One must be very creative in these times.

So, see you're not here as often either, I'll check in occasionally myself. Hope all is well, always be prepared for the future, take time to enjoy the Creation....

Frieden.

Hey Quin, how ya be:)

I remember in the '80s when it was UPC symbols, commonly known as "bar codes" :

http://www.av1611.org/666/barcode.html

I actually worked on systems (design and production) that applied at that time (early 1980's) and was a young believer at the time. Had well meaning brethren inform me I was "assisting the Anti-Christ..." that "..the Lord would return .." before the end of the decade and I should leave my employment or be damned. Well, I did eventually leave, but not for those reasons. It seems as a particular eschatological view has gained foothold beginning in the dawn of the 20th century, new technology seems to be scrutinized to how it may "fit in" to the letter of Revelation. I found this on Snopes:

http://www.snopes.com/politics/medical/microc...

What do you think?

I'm in the process of reading the "Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act" ,aka "Obamacare", daunting task but believe all should try, to know first hand what is being thrust on us.

Well, got to be about my day, hope yours is a great one bro...

YOU'RE DAMN RIGHT I'M SCARED.

This so called President-of-the-free-world has played on people's fear's & emotions since the start of his first campaign. He has the younger generation convinced that he has all the answers and unless his plans are inacted we are doomed. A plan which instills fear isn't a plan, it's tyranny.
I can say for one liberal anyway being progressived isnt synonymous with wanting pre-op trans-sexuals in lockerrooms with children.
Again, it appears either one is all in or they're not in at all.
But politics aside..how in the world does a law say a guy who still has male genitalia should be considered female?
He has convinced the right people (or the wrong people depending which side of the fence one stands)that he was born a woman in a mans body. Ergo; he was born that way!
By that logic any guy could put a wig on and demand to be allowed in a women's locker-room. They need to change the law. If my nieces were 6 when that happened that guy would be on post-op life-support.
They'd lock you up. First charge ...hate crime.

You have a good heart Skom, that I can't deny. But obviously some folks have managed to carry this too far. And in the wrong direction. Annie speaks to the homeless problem daily; yet we spend untold amounts of money trying to find a solution to the issue's of the GLBT community, rather than jobs, health, education, the elderly, and our youth. What's wrong with this picture?

I believe there is a lot of coincidental truth at work there. The creator of the bar code admitted that the 666 was strangely in there but that it wasn't his intention to code that in. I believe him... it reminds me of the "stone that was rejected has become a capstone" situation... in the same prophetic fashion, not even wicked Judas planned to work himself into the former prophecy that he would betray Jesus.

I think, like most of us, your well-meaning brethren had a glimpse of what would occur (we see in part... I Cor 13). But didn't have all the pieces. The pieces are starting to come together more now. Like when you start a jigsaw puzzle.. you can't make out the image... but the more it comes together, the more you see it happening unless one wants to just be wilfully ignorant. Let the ignorant stay ignorant, let the the filthy stay filthy still (from Rev) if that the route that one chooses to stay on.

To be continued.

Very true. In 08 during the McCain/ Obama election someone told me the only thing McCain had was fear and it didn't win the day. So here in 2012 it sadly seems it has won the day after all. Make no mistake I love this nation but my faith isn't in it anymore. We have lost our firm foundation and put it in sand. We are told to pray for those in authority and I do. God will have His word in His time.

they demand and rasie voice from down,that down Society exist and want to have a part in goverment rulership, same china,etc...

I see only horible election division and states division of United States dissagreeing with second terme odf obama.
Division and sarcasm is not always violent, or bloody sheed blood on the streets

federal goverment cause this division here,
according to old satan activity, divide and be ruler/that is happen in politics,and religions all way around the world,not only this country
anyway this country pretend to be leader of this world,
also main blame is against this country politics,and religions.

the best solution for us christians is to be neutral.

What do you think?
Concerning Snopes view, I've already seen it and submitted it in here a couple days ago.

http://www.topix.com/forum/topstories/T0N0LOR...

**********

But I think one should look on all sides by walking circumspectly. But obviously in this case, snopes is wrong in this article because language for a class II (implantable device) was in included in HR 3962 - and I didn't see where Snopes had made any mention of that language in the new healtcare bill signed into law in their article.

Look my friend, it is obvious that this technology has been around for a while... What I think will happen is that even though the chip is as small as a grain of rice... I think it is too big. I think the first models will be that size and it will become ever smaller... it will be voluntary at first, afterwards I believe that they will give incentives to those who get implanted, and after they have a majority of people implanted over the course of several years then they will make it mandatory or people will lose the benefit of buying and selling through the digitized marketplace.

I don't know if the chip is the actual mark but it is eerily, very similar to what Revelation has warned us. I think that the mark represents more of secular, godless way of thinking & living(godless from the standpoint of completely rejecting God and accepting false gods/goddess/pride of life, lust of the flesh, etc.)


I think that many will be deceived by the anti-christ (even the "elect" whereever possible), I think people mock the book of Revelations because they don't understand the spiritual aspects of it or want to understand it and by doing so will lead others astray from it, I think that as it was in the days of Noah so shall it be in the days of the Son of man where people will mock and say, "where is His coming?" (talking about Jesus' return). I think that all the pieces of the puzzle is slowly coming together and we see a better picture... I used to think that the Anti-Christ would come out of Europe but I now think that he may even come out of America and will even call himself a christian. I don't think that Obama is that anti-christ... but just like David was a type of Christ I do believe that Obama is most definitely a type of the anti-christ... his actions and some of his policies suggest so.

If you get a chance, look up Ronald Reagan 1961 views on Socialized Medicine.

Isn't it biblical though that we are to take care of this earth...created by God...on which we live?

What is your interpretation of this verse?

Genesis 2:15

15 And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.

Yes the Garden of Eden is specifically mentioned but don't you think that he meant ALL that he gave to us?

My interpretation is that we are to "dress" it meaning to work the land...to "keep" it IMO is to guard it...protect it.

Here is one Christians view point of biblical responsibility. You might not agree but I found a lot of worth in it.

http://www.doesgodexist.org/MayJun08/Biblical...

Do I believe that there is some hype involved with environmental issues...of course I do. I still believe however that this earth that we live upon is a beautiful gift...one that we should try to pass on to those that follow in as good of condition as possible.
