It's an Obsession...

it is nearly an obsession for myself. I had to post this.

The Connecticut personal-injury lawyer cracked three vertebrae when he slipped during a race last December. He pulled a hamstring in Tampa two months later, and again in Mississippi a week after that. He nearly passed out in the parched hills of South Dakota in August, finishing last by two hours. In October, he got lost in the woods of Indiana when organizers cleared away the markers. "It's an obsession," he says. "No different than gambling, drinking or doing drugs."

Mr. DeFronzo is part of a proud subculture of self-styled "mega marathoners," people who run hundreds of the 26.2-mile races. Three Germans, a Finn and a Japanese woman are known to have clocked more than 1,000 marathons apiece -- that is 26,200 miles, about 1,300 miles more than the circumference of the earth. The record holder, 74-year-old Horst Preisler, has run 1,636 marathons.

Legal Service Plans Can Benefit Homeowners Facing Foreclosure

ADA, Okla., Nov. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- As the foreclosure crisis in the U.S. expands, along with a rising unemployment rate now at 10 percent, one thing has become all too clear: homeowners who are in danger of losing their homes to foreclosure need access to affordable professional legal services. Yet, at the time that many homeowners most need legal counsel, to understand their rights, obligations and options, they are least able to afford these vital services. By some estimates, 3.4 million households will receive a foreclosure notice this year and 2010 may set another record in foreclosures and homes lost.

Sights are set on rise in Pre-Paid Legal’s era

With the stock market and housing in decline, some people are wondering where they can invest their money. How about investing in yourself? How about starting a small business, a part time venture and see what you are made of? See if you can double or triple your investment in 6 months. The risks are minimal and limited, but the benefits are endless.

"They need our services more now than at any other time. Foreclosures are at record highs, and, in fact, we’re told in 2010 and 2011, more than 50 percent of mortgages will be under water. Those people will need lawyers.”

Pre-Paid members are already getting good use of their service, consulting with attorneys about foreclosures and having a better shot at working out an agreement to keep their homes.

"A lot of people who get into this situation can’t afford $300 to $500 an hour,” Stonecipher said. "But with Pre-Paid, they get unlimited access.”

Jesus acted with ferocious and bold integrity
when he threw the money changers out of the temple.
Needless to say, he hiccuped their cash flows on what
otherwise would have been a big grossing day. Their
business model threatened, the priests who managed the money
changers insisted that the Romans crucify Jesus. The Romans
tried to pawn the problem off on the local king, Herod, who
ducked and sent Jesus back to the Romans. The Romans, still
looking for a way out, tried a flogging. That did not work.
The priests meanwhile had succeeded in persuading the crowd
to support them and scapegoat Jesus. Thirsting for a
crucifixion, the crowd voted to set the criminal Barabbas
free instead of Jesus.

Jesus died because the crowd voted
for the criminal enterprise. The crowd voted for the priests
and their rich endowments and their alliance with the money
It's 2000 Years Later and We're
Still Voting for the Criminals

ARRESTED & Cuffed for two overdue library books

Wisconsin woman, 20, arrested for two overdue library volumes

Book Her, Dan-O

Dalibor, who made the mistake of ignoring a court citation issued after she failed to respond to letters and phone calls from the Grafton library, was busted August 6 for failing to return copies of Janet Fitch’s best-seller “White Oleander” (a 1999 Oprah Book Club selection) and “Angels & Demons,” author Dan Brown’s precursor to “The Da Vinci Code.”

According to a police report, Dalibor was apprehended at her family’s home, cuffed and stuffed in a cruiser, and booked for violating the “overdue library materials” ordinance.
She also had to pose for the below mug shot at the Grafton Police Department.

But that’s the trend across America.  I hear Alex Jones’ statements about police brutality, setups and more and more laws to control and humiliate us.  And I often find it hard to believe, but then you watch videos and read the official press releases, and it’s true.

America's Priorities, by the Beltway Elite

This is a great article that reminds me of the same problem Jesus found in His day. To the religious elite (the Pharisees) He had to ask...

Mark 3:4 Is it lawful to do good or to do harm on the Sabbath, to save a life or to kill?

The Pharisees could do amazing things. They could swallow a camel and strain at gnats. They could kill, but not heal on the Sabbath. It was there nature. Apparently they had children for they are with us this day.

"You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies. John 8:44

"America's Priorities," by the Beltway elite

Endless war in Afghanistan is an absolute necessity. Health care for Americans is a luxury that can wait.
the Post demands that Obama's health care plan not be paid for with borrowed money, yet the very same Post Editors vocally support escalation in Afghanistan without specifying how it should be paid for.  "Why is it okay to finance wars with debt, asks our reader, but not to pay for health care that way?"
nearly 45,000 annual deaths are associated with lack of health insurance" in America

Adam Smith, all the way back in 1776, in An Inquiry into the Nature And Causes of the Wealth of Nations, described this Beltway attitude exactly:

In great empires the people who live in the capital, and in the provinces remote from the scene of action, feel, many of them, scarce any inconveniency from the war; but enjoy, at their ease, the amusement of reading in the newspapers the exploits of their own fleets and armies . . .

Federal Courts Issue Rulings on Bush-Era Torture, Racial Profiling Cases

Mr. Arar, a Syrian-born Canadian citizen, was detained at JFK Airport in September
2002 while changing planes on his way home to Canada. The Bush administration
labeled him a member of al-Qaeda and sent him not to Canada, his home and country
of citizenship, but against his will to Syrian intelligence authorities renowned
for torture. He was tortured, interrogated and detained in a tiny underground
cell for nearly a year before the Syrian government released him, stating they
had found no connection to any criminal or terrorist organization or activity.

Speed Cameras Add More Woes To Commuters

More people need to get involved in their local government to put the brakes on this sort of thing. The people should decide how much surveillance they want, not big corp. You can get the cameras removed by calling for a vote.

Rise of the stealthy traffic camera fuels drivers' disgust

There's something that doesn't smell right about these tickets, but you're not quite sure what.

People get worked up. Put these cyborgs on a ballot, and the voters beat them to the pavement.

Three cities Tuesday -- two in Ohio, one in Texas -- voted to rip the things down. In College Station, Tex., the camera manufacturer and their subcontractors reportedly spent $60,000 campaigning to keep them in place, more than five times the amount raised by the opposition, and lost anyway. Voters in Chillicothe, Ohio, went against the cameras at a rate of 72 percent. In Heath, Ohio, the mayor got caught removing anti-camera campaign signs from an intersection. He, and the cameras, got sent packing.

Nationwide, there have been something like 11 elections on automated enforcement. Your vote total: Revolting Peasants 11, Machines 0.

In developing the list of undervalued small cap companies -- those with market capitalization between $200 million and $2 billion -- Mr. Chokkavelu considered both positive earnings, through the price/earnings (P/E) ratio, and the positive free cash flow (P/FCF) ratio for the past five years. As noted in the article, "We want companies that are both accounting profitable and generating cash off of that profitability." Among the 20 small cap companies, PPD's ratios were listed as P/E (7.3) and P/FCF (6.3).

"This is another in a series of favorable articles about Pre-Paid Legal Services and we're pleased to see this recognition," said Harland C. Stonecipher, Pre-Paid Legal Services Founder and CEO.

Attorneys Warn Second Wave of Foreclosures Coming Urges Consumers to Know Their Rights

clipped from
Washington D.C. October 29, 2009 — E. F. Robinson, an attorney who specializes in consumer law, is warning the public that a second wave of foreclosures is on the horizon, and he is urging that people prepare for any eventuality by knowing their rights– before they need them.
Regarding conventional wisdom that people facing foreclosure are getting what they deserve, Robinson offers this retort: “Poppycock”
“Most did not understand what they were signing,”
We have had lots of success,
“Less than 2 percent have had to turn their house back in.”
But the mortgage crisis is just one part of the equation
For example, identify theft has increased, affecting those with good [^] credit who unexpectedly find themselves victims. And other good credit risks who invested in extended warranties are finding that some firms are not honoring service contracts.
“Such companies are getting less business, therefore making less money,” Robinson said, adding that many are now reneging on warranties

the matter of financial security
There are always a series of doomsday prophets who want to camp on our fears

Three times in this passage...first of all in Verse says, "Do not be anxious."  Secondly, in Verse 31, "do not be anxious."  And finally in Verse 34, "do not be anxious."  The key to the whole passage then is, "don't be anxious."  That mandate...that illustrated, elucidated, argued, and reasoned with the inimitable skill of the master teacher, the Lord Jesus Christ.  It defines the proper attitude with which disciples of Jesus should live their lives in a material world.

Wanting the necessities of life is very normal.  "Just don't worry about it," He says.
three reasons never to worry.  This is the end of financial stress.  Number one, "It is unnecessary because of Your Father."  Two, "It is uncharacteristic because of your faith."  Three, "It is unwise because of your future."

What do I do if police frisk me?

What do I do if police frisk me?

If police detain and frisk you, you have the right to clearly state your refusal to consent to the search. For example, you may say "Officer, I'm not resisting. I do not consent to this search."

But you should only verbally refuse. Never physically resist. Just touching an officer could get you tasered or beaten. You could also get a felony charge for assaulting a police officer.

If you believe you were wrongly frisked, consider filing a police misconduct report.

    U.S. Mercenaries Exempt from all laws

    Absence of justice? Our country will pay. Everyone is subject to natural law and nature's God.

    How the faithful city has become a harlot, She who was full of justice! Righteousness once lodged in her, But now murderers. Your silver has become dross, Your drink diluted with water. Your rulers are rebels And companions of thieves; Everyone loves a bribe And chases after rewards. They do not defend the orphan, Nor does the widow's plea come before them. Therefore the Lord God of hosts, The Mighty One of Israel, declares, "Ah, I will be relieved of My adversaries And avenge Myself on My foes. Isaiah 1:21-24

    Have we forgotten how Assyria and then Babylon rose up to take this corrupt nation away? Will it be any different for any other nation? Will it be different for us?

    US defence firms face penalty over block on assault claims

    Senate passes measure prompted by case of woman prevented from suing over alleged rape by Halliburton/KBR colleagues

    Jamie Leigh Jones

    Halliburton/KBR used a clause in Jones's contract requiring disputes to be settled by arbitration to block legal action, a policy her lawyer says has encouraged assaults by creating a climate of impunity.

    Franken described it as a denial of justice. "Contractors are using fine print to deny women like Jamie Leigh Jones their day in court," he said in a Senate debate. "They can't have mandatory arbitration on issues like assault and battery."
