A Man Visits Hell

A good man had made a request to god that he wanted to visit hell once.

God had taken him to hell and he noticed a lot of clocks there on display.

Astonished the man asked ”What are these clocks for?”

God said “these are timers which rotate proportionally to the lies you tell on the earth”

“Why is that clock not rotating?” asked the man, pointing to a particular clock?

God said “It belongs to a nobleman who never told a lie, so it’s not moving.”

The man got curious and asked, “so where are the clocks of our politicians? I would like to see them!”

God said “Just look above you, they use them instead of fans here”.1

Sears – Christmas shopping this year.

I know I needed this reminder, since Sears isn’t always my first choice. It’s amazing when you think of how long the war has lasted and Sears hasn’t withdrawn from their commitment. Could we each buy at least one thing at Sears this year?

What commitment you say?

How does Sears treat its employees who are serving in our military? By law, they are required to hold their jobs open and available, but nothing more. Usually, people take a big pay cut and lose benefits as a result of being on active duty.

Sears is voluntarily paying the difference in salaries and maintaining all benefits, including medical insurance and bonus programs, for all employees who are serving.

I submit that Sears is an exemplary corporate citizen and should be recognized for its contribution. I suggest we all shop at Sears at least once this year. Be sure to find a manager to tell them why we are there so the company gets the positive reinforcement & feedback it well deserves.

BANGKOK (Reuters) – An anti-government mob in Thailand attacked people and vehicles near a stadium rally by supporters of Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra on Saturday as tensions boiled over and protesters tore down barricades to prepare to occupy her offices.

Reuters witnesses saw two people on a motorcycle badly beaten, with one left unconscious, and a angry mob using poles and sticks to attack a taxi and a packed bus…

Will Israel Take Steps to Save Herself?

Beyond the Cusp

Often articles about the possible paths that lie before Israel going into the future denote how Israel must appease this one, follow the path spelled out by another, listen to this group or person and other such similar advisories all of which place Israel in a subservient role following the dictates of some other nation, group, expert, advisor or even the columnist writing the article itself. Most of these advisories are more aligned with the interests or desires of the entities leaving Israel in the position of following the demands of others or making apologies for acting in her own best interests. Unfortunately it is following bad advice or giving in to the pressures presented as something that the world demands or expects from Israel.  Many have concluded that Israel has lost something and is no longer that small nation standing surrounded by enemies who wished nothing more than…
