I take this as I love the opposite sex if fact I am crazy about the opposite sex. It sounds like you may like the opposite sex as well. But there are those on here who may like the same sex. My view on that is simple I don’t care; it is not my place to judge. Even if I do think homosexuality is a sin that is a problem between god and that person not me. I cannot stop you from sinning but I don’t have to help you sin either. And I can say I disagree with your life style. I could say that about a lot of heterosexual’s people I know as well
God Bless you and keep the post coming :)

"NEW YORK (CNNMoney)
Investors are hoping that a fresh batch of economic data will breathe life back into stock markets this week.
All three major indexes shed about 1% last week.
However, the market hasn't lost much of its momentum. The Dow Jones Industrial Average, S&P 500 and Nasdaq are all up between 18% and 23% so far this year."
Opinion: Banks strike gold in aluminum scam
http://www.northjersey.com/news/opinions/alum...
IN 1909, as one of the scores of short pictures he turned out that year, D.W. Griffith directed “A Corner in Wheat,” a 14-minute film adaptation of a story by the populist antitrust novelist Frank Norris. In it, a Wall Street speculator buys up so much of America’s wheat and keeps it off the market that prices soar and millions — including the farm family Griffith shows laboring in the fields — go hungry.

A Shuffle of Aluminum, but to Banks, Pure Gold
http://www.nytimes.com/2013/07/21/business/a-...
Hundreds of millions of times a day, thirsty Americans open a can of soda, beer or juice. And every time they do it, they pay a fraction of a penny more because of a shrewd maneuver by Goldman Sachs and other financial players that ultimately costs consumers billions of dollars.

The inflated aluminum pricing is just one way that Wall Street is flexing its financial muscle and capitalizing on loosened federal regulations to sway a variety of commodities markets, according to financial records, regulatory documents and interviews with people involved in the activities.

The maneuvering in markets for oil, wheat, cotton, coffee and more have brought billions in profits to investment banks like Goldman, JPMorgan Chase and Morgan Stanley, while forcing consumers to pay more every time they fill up a gas tank, flick on a light switch, open a beer or buy a cellphone. In the last year, federal authorities have accused three banks, including JPMorgan, of rigging electricity prices, and last week JPMorgan was trying to reach a settlement that could cost it $500 million.

Using special exemptions granted by the Federal Reserve Bank and relaxed regulations approved by Congress, the banks have bought huge swaths of infrastructure used to store commodities and deliver them to consumers — from pipelines and refineries in Oklahoma, Louisiana and Texas; to fleets of more than 100 double-hulled oil tankers at sea around the globe; to companies that control operations at major ports like Oakland, Calif., and Seattle.

I've noticed that also, Jax.
They actually promote the very things they claim to be against. I don't think there's enough intelligence among the lot of them to even know what a "democratic society" means. They seem to favor draconian tactics like dictators and fascists.
Apparently, this group thinks freedom is only for those they decide deserve it.

A rock star's welcome, with hope for change
http://www.lowellsun.com/todaysheadlines/ci_2...
In Cambodia, corrupt government officials continue to grow richer by trampling on the human rights of the rest, said Lak, an engineer from Providence, R.I., who was deported from the communist-ruled country 30 years ago. But, seeing fellow expatriates stand united with Rainsy -- the opposition party leader who says he won the minister post in last month's general election -- is giving Lak hope that changes are coming.

Why is sales tax charged on soda can 'deposit'?
http://www.ocregister.com/taxdollars/strong-4...
"I have been trying to find out why I pay state sales on the CRV I am charged whenever I buy canned soda," Tom Dimuro wrote to us at The Register. "I have asked several store managers and they tell me that they have also tried to get the answer to the same question to NO avail."

Well, Tom, that's what we're here for. It turns out that while many folks think of the 5-or-10-cent California Refund Value (CRV) as a deposit, it is, in fact, no such thing. To wit:

"The charge for California Redemption Value (CRV) is not a deposit, but a fee imposed on the distributor of the beverage," the state explains. "The fee is passed along to the retailer and to you as the consumer. Although separately stated, the fee is subject to tax as part of the taxable selling price of the beverage."

There are reports that some bridge card recipients will use the cards to buy soda-pop, pour out the contents and then cash in the bottle deposits to buy drugs, tobacco or alcohol.

There is no more "rallying around a cause" and getting the job done with unity today. Everything that is brought up has to have the hard "Divide and Conquer" pushed in our faces in an attempt to squeak out a slight edge to get what they want.
Obviously many people like that way and think it works great but I just think it will be what causes the the divide that will cause our fall.
But only if we allow ourselves to succumb to all of this foolishness that they spew.
