    660AM radio --- Mark Davis Show | 18 Oct 2016 | LTC.Ret
    This morning at approximately 8:30 on the Mark Davis morning show in DFW, a speaker named Robison called the show and gave his reasons for Christians to put aside the nit picking and vote for Trump. It should be on the Mark Davis website or Facebook --- he said he would post it ASAP. I do not have the skills to put this together professionally. This needs to be shared far and wide among our Christian communities so that our friends don't get hung up on a few salty words and forget the big picture.

    The squatters continue to loiter at the county administration building raising a stink demanding more and more of other people's money. We have obtained word from Seattle councilman Burgess about a new law that would not only legitimize the SHARE squatters at county Admin but make it legal to camp in any public area! This means that parks, sidewalks, government buildings, open lots ETC could turn into outdoor homeless shelters!   Homeless Encampments: An Update It has been four weeks since my colleagues’ introduced legislation that would create a right to camp on public property throughout the city.

    Well its been awhile since I reported on the mayhem in Seattle being caused by Democrats and by an organization called SHARE/WHEEL, this organization is really a cross between the mafia, the SEIU and occupy wall street.

In fact I didn't even hear about it until I learned from Steve Ferrell AKA Seataclibertarian my business associate who lives there about Share's existence.

However, the City does not have any additional funding for shelter operations. The City’s primary interest is ensuring that the beds we have contracted with SHARE to operate are brought back into operation so that those who are experiencing homelessness in our community are able to access shelter. This interest has been clearly expressed to the men and women of SHARE/WHEEL. Again, thank you for sharing your concerns with the City of Seattle. I also received a...

    President Barack Obama is right that the U.S. and the West, in general, are "not at war with Islam." As he has said, 99.9% of Muslims want exactly what the rest of us desire – peace, justice and happiness. But the air is thick with misunderstandings and lies. Recently a Muslim woman was banned from wearing a headscarf called a hijab in a Quebec courtroom. Far from hiding a woman's face, the hijab is a tasteful symbol of a traditional respect for modesty, not a mask. Many non-Muslims in the West have no idea how huge a contribution was made...

    Many Americans didn't bother to vote in the past presidential election, some out of apathy or a belief that the election would hardly affect them. They are in for a rude awakening now that Obama has won re-election. His Santa Claus false promises are unsustainable, so there are going to be few winners and a lot of losers as he redistributes wealth. Obama ran on a platform of making the rich “pay their fair share of taxes,” but raising taxes on the wealthy will only fund the federal government for eight days a year. In order to even partially keep...

However, Mitt Romney, like most other high income earners across the globe, acts rationally – just as most of us do – in the sense that they try to reduce their total tax burden by avoiding whatever taxes they can; behaviour that is well within the laws created by government and perfectly legal. Any insinuation that high income earners do not pay...

    During Iowa’s recent State Fair, presidential candidate Romney was asked: "Do you support scrapping the social security cap on payroll taxes so rich people pay their fair share into the trust fund?" Romney correctly associated the question with class warfare and went on to indicate that half of the people in the United States are currently not paying any income taxes. See The Iowa State Fair: Romney's Showing Strong, August 11, 2011. The unfortunate truth is, there is no better way to agitate a class warfare event in America than to bring up the issue of federal tax reform. And...

    Barack Hussein Obama and his administration have called for the rich to contribute their fair share, in this and every crisis. Whether we speak of the debt ceiling or the annual deficit, the problem of rising unemployment or that of sinking consumer confidence, the Administration’s mantra is the same: "The rich" must kick in their fair share. How they define the rich is another matter. In one conversation, it’s those with incomes above $250,000/year, or perhaps $200,000, or perhaps $150,000. In another context, it’s those who own jets, or who have access to corporate jets, or perhaps who have heard...

    Probably the most imprtant secular trend in recent employment data, one that has a far greater impact on the macroeconomic themes than Birth/Death and seasonal adjustment manipulated month to month shifts in the employment pool per either the household or establishment surveys, is the labor share of national income. In a 2004 paper from the St. Louis Fed, the authors make the following statement: "The allocation of national income between workers and the owners of capital is considered one of the more remarkably stable relationships in the U.S. economy. As a general rule of thumb, economists often cite labor’s share...

    JERUSALEM – Israel's leader on Sunday dismissed a call from a key government partner to share the holy city of Jerusalem with the Palestinians, a reminder of the obstacles facing already troubled peacemaking efforts. Conflicting claims to east Jerusalem lie at the heart of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The dispute over the area, home to sensitive Jewish, Muslim and Christian holy sites, has derailed past peace talks and spilled into violence. Palestinians claim the sector as the capital of their future state. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's reaffirmation of his intention to hold on to east Jerusalem drew criticism from the...

Locked away in forgotten city archives, the share was made out to Pieter Harmensz, a male resident of the Dutch city Enkhuizen who served as an assistant to the city's mayors. After his death in 1638, Harmensz left the share to his widow and their daughter Ada and the document eventually ended up in Enkhuizen archives, kept in the northwestern city Hoorn.

    Mothers And Offspring Can Share Cells Throughout Life ScienceDaily (May 5, 2008) — Cutting the umbilical cord doesn’t necessarily sever the physical link between mother and child. Many cells pass back and forth between the mother and fetus during pregnancy and can be detected in the tissues and organs of both even decades later. This mixing of cells from two genetically distinct individuals is called microchimerism. The phenomenon is the focus of an increasing number of scientists who wonder what role these cells play in the body. A potentially significant one, it turns out.

Shares in Halifax Bank of Scotland fell by 17 per cent as traders attempted to make a fortune by betting on the bank's falling stock. Malicious rumours circulated by speculators were blamed for the run, which saw more than £3 billion wiped off the bank's value. Britain's financial watchdog launched a criminal investigation to hunt down "ruthless" rogue traders, including one speculator thought to have...

"It's premature to decide that question. First we've got to see if we can work out with the president an agreement on sharing power. He has shown signs of being willing to do that," said the Pennsylvania Republican, who will join a group of fellow Republican senators in meeting with President Bush later this week.

    11/7/2006 - SOUTHWEST ASIA (AFPN) -- The year was 1967. First Lt. Marko Milakovich stood on the side of Budda Mountain, about 10 miles from Quang Nhia in South Vietnam. The 25-year-old was on a site survey and had a weapons carrier and six Army bodyguards for safety. As he stood on the mountainside, leaflets fluttered to the ground around him. Dropped from U.S. helicopters, the leaflets offered the enemy safe surrender passes and rewards for turning in weapons. Four decades later, this image remains etched in the veteran's mind. "After I finished the site survey I returned to the...

The breakthrough compromise falls short of international demands that Hamas fully renounce violence, but Israeli officials still voiced cautious support for the accord. Hamas, which is committed to Israel's destruction, swept to victory in January legislative elections, defeating Fatah, and formed a government by itself. The West and Israel reacted by cutting off hundreds of millions of dollars in aid, accusing Hamas of being a...

    FORT MEADE, August 2, 2006 – The young and not-so-young men and women processing into the military earlier this week at the Military Entrance Processing Station here offer a snapshot of the armed forces of the future. Most are between 18 and 20, and men outnumber women. But beyond those generalizations, no common thread runs through the group. They represent all colors and a broad range of ethnic groups, come from a variety of backgrounds, and express a wide range of motivations for joining the military. Among the youngest processing through the Baltimore MEPS July 31 was 17-year-old Bethany Wade,...

    ThePirateBay is back from the dead again Reports of its demise greatly exaggerated By Nick Farrell: Sunday 04 June 2006, 23:09 THE P2P site ThePirateBay is back from the dead, despite claims from various anti-piracy groups that it had been sunk. The site went back online on Saturday at 6:07PM Eastern Standard Time, and already seems to be a bit busy, probably because it is not running at full capacity again. It is not clear if any of the smaller businesses that were also using the same ISP are back online. The last email we received from GameSwitch, that outfit...
