Soros Invests In a People Tracking Company
Economic Policy Journal ^ | 2/20/10 | Robert Wenzel

Posted on 02/21/2010 10:07:55 AM PST by FromLori

What's billionaire George Soros doing investing in a tiny company out of Jamaica? Answer: He has found a company that tracks student lunches and is working on tracking: attendance, transportation, grades and welfare payments.

It is becoming increasingly clear that if George Soros makes an investment, there is usually some government backing of the investment in some fashion, and it is generally an investment that is not moving the world in the direction of freedom and the pursuit of happiness.

Check out this curious Soros investment, as disclosed by Jamaica's Gleacher News:

A small Jamaican firm that has made a name for itself providing technology-based solutions for some financial administration problems that plague schools has secured a United States government contract and an undisclosed amount of capital from American billionaire George Soros to transfer its expertise to a problem-plagued school-lunch programme in the West African nation of Ghana. The programme is said to be costing the government there US$250 million a year to administer.

Student Card Limited (SCL) was among 14 firms that each received between US$50,000 and US$100,000 in January as seed funding from the United States Agency for International Development for various projects under what is known as the African Diaspora Market programme.

While it has not been ascertained which investment vehicle Soros is using to help capitalise SCL, it is expected that the financier will take up to a 20 per cent stake in the enterprise.

The firm is a local provider of technology to educational institutions in Jamaica. Its products and services include an electronic student lunch card, which provides greater accountability and easier administration for such feeding programmes...

The company is also targeting other public institutions to apply the technology platform to solving many other administrative issues, including those affecting public-library management, welfare-service reconciliation, public-transport passes, grade reporting, student-development tracking, attendance management and access controls.

This investment has the smell of pure evil. The first stop may be Ghana, but when a billionaire global interventionist invests in a tiny company that seems bent on developing more and more people tracking systems starting when a kid grabs his kindergarten lunch, I get real nervous.

Why not just give away his own money?

Why does it have to be ours?

Highly probable his bargain with the devil has some kind of immortality clause in it.

Aside from Soros (the walking argument for the existence of evil) investing in tracking tools for the NWO, why, in this economy, is US tax money being granted to develop businesses in other countries?

He’ll be 80 this year and has 5 children. What good is it if he amassed all the riches in this world but loses his soul.

Now I would say one that gambles on 80 yrs +/- vs. eternity is one dumba$$. His economics has failed - he has not included eternity into his equation. There is none so blind that refuse to see. His debt will take eternity to pay - I’d say the billionaire lost.

What if there is no eternity in Hell but annihilation ?

Annihilationism is a branch of Christianity that believes God won`t bother with keeping billions of souls captured in Hell. He will simply snuff out the soul the way a smoker crushes a cigarette butt into an ashtray.

But then again maybe Soros has no soul.

God won`t bother with keeping billions of souls captured in Hell.

That's man thinking on his own level. God is a God of Justice. And He doesn't interfere with man's decision. He doesn't force Himself on anyone. We either go to Him willingly or reject Him willingly. But, what we accept here on earth is what we have for eternity. God didn't put them in hell - they willingly went through pride - they don't need a Savior. God tells us what we need to be saved and how the sin debt needs to be paid and a sinful man cannot pay his own debt. Jesus paid their price - paid in full and they rejected it. So now they have to pay it in their own way. They made that decision and God keeps His Word.

But then again maybe Soros has no soul.

Well, he does. It's so evil that one would imagine - he can't have one because of it. He worships evil in his own way - that's what he wants, that is what he will live with for eternity. Evil appears good to him here - look what I have - I am so smart with my economic expertise and can do things others can't. We know he knows it's evil because he does it underhandedly - and he thinks it's his 'smarts' over others. Well, it's not his world nor his rules that apply for eternity - he WILL one day bow down to The Almighty to the One he rejected. No one escapes. Annihilationism is man's way of escaping (in his own mind). God gave His mercy w/Jesus dying on the cross. And they rejected that mercy - there are no do-overs once dead.

I think his investment has more to do with profits. A big investment in companies that help the government infringe on privacy ETC. like investing in Oil at the beginning of the Automobile age.

Because Libtards are always generous with taxpayer funds, but are NOT generous with their own money.

Why would God torture souls for eternity? He`s not a sadist.

The wicked are punished eternally, they won`t suffer eternal punishment.

According to Matt. 10:28, God DOES snuff out souls and does in fact save and destroy (Jam.4:12). The “second death”(Rev.21:8), of the soul since the death of the physical body is the first death, comes when it is tossed in the fires of hell that burns forever. See, the fire burns forever but the souls is extinguished.

Because he has the money and the power, and he owns enough politicians (especially the sock puppet-in-chief) to take ours.

I'd be very happy to wake up one morning to the news Soros has suffered a debilitating, massive stroke.
