MANSON, Wash. – A Michigan couple is lucky to be alive after their minivan was hit by a falling cow on Sunday.
According to a report in the Wenatchee World newspaper, Charles Everson, Jr. and his wife Linda were driving on Highway 150 about one mile east of Manson in Chelan County when a cow fell about 200 feet off a cliff and landed on the hood of their minivan.
“It was ‘bam’- you just saw something come down and hit the hood,” Everson told the newspaper from a hotel room in Manson.
Everson, 49, and his wife were visiting the area from Westland, Michigan, near Detroit, and were headed back to their hotel after attending a church service.
The newspaper cites Everson saying he didn’t see the animal until it hit and didn’t realize what happened until after the impact.
“I’m like, ‘I don’t believe this, I don’t believe this, I don’t believe this,'” Everson told the newspaper.
“It’s funny because it was such a close call,” Arnold Baker, Chelan County Fire District 5 Chief told the World. “Inches different and the couple in this car would have been killed.”
Charles and Linda Everson of Westland were driving in the scenic foothills of Washington state when they slowed for a fallen rock.
The boulder, however, was nothing compared to what would drop next.
Namely, a 600-pound baby cow.

“This decline in the value of the dollar is simple to explain. The dollar loses value as the direct result of the Federal Reserve and U.S. Treasury increasing the money supply. Inflation, as the late Milton Friedman explained, is always a monetary phenomenon. The federal government consistently wants to spend more than it can tax and borrow, so Congress turns to the Fed for help in covering the difference. The result is more dollars, both real and electronic – which means the value of every existing dollar goes down.”

When the U.S. Navy deploys a battle fleet on exercises, it takes the security of its aircraft carriers very seriously indeed.
At least a dozen warships provide a physical guard while the technical wizardry of the world’s only military superpower offers an invisible shield to detect and deter any intruders.
That is the theory. Or, rather, was the theory.

“Our financial system is a false one and a huge burden on the people . . . This Act establishes the most gigantic trust on earth.” — Congressman Charles Augustus Lindbergh, Sr.
The shareholders of these banks which own the stock of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York are the people who have controlled our political and economic destinies since 1914.
They are the Rothschilds of Europe, Lazard Freres (Eugene Meyer), Kuhn Loeb Company, Warburg Company, Lehman Brothers, Goldman Sachs, the Rockefeller family, and the J.P. Morgan interests.
Disclaimer: I don’t at all see this as a Jewish conspiracy. I never point the finger at any race of people. Even those mentioned above aren’t the main problem. Paul wrote:
“For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world’s rulers of the darkness of this age, and against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places” (Eph. 6:12).
People are not the enemy. We should never hate people.
Hate evil, not people.

In violation of international and U.S. law, “thousands” of alleged terrorists have been victims of “extraordinary rendition” by the Bush Administration since 9/11, two legal scholars say. “Instead of working to bring those committing crimes against the United States to justice in U.S. courts, the Bush Administration seems intent on doing exactly the opposite—keeping such individuals away from U.S. courts, hidden in a web of secret prisons, underground interrogation cells, and in the hands of cooperative governments”….
The more clement Arctic climate of recent years could have been triggered by shorter term circulation changes in the oceans and atmosphere.
According to a team of NASA scientists, decade-long variations in ocean circulation, known as the Arctic Oscillation, have an effect on the oceans’ salinity. A very salty sea is heavier and circulates differently than a less salty one, the team says. This can affect the temperature of the water in the region and thus the local climate.

INFLATION – WHO SAYS IT’S DEAD?
88% EROSION OF PURCHASING POWER – AND CONTINUING
– a dollar in 1950 will buy only 12 cents worth of goods today, 88% less than before –
Inflation in my adult years increased average prices 1,000% or more –
example 1: a postage stamp in the 1950s cost 3 cents; today’s cost is 41 cents – 1,266% inflation;
example 2: a gallon of 90 Octane full-service gasoline cost 18 cents before; today it is $3.05 for self-service – 1,870 % inflation;
example 3: a house in 1959 cost $14,100; today’s median price is $213,000 – 1,400% inflation;
example 4: a dental crown used to cost $40; today it’s $1,100 – 2,750% inflation;
example 5: an ice cream cone in 1950 cost 5 cents; today its $2.50 – 4,900% inflation;
example 6: monthly government Medicare insurance premiums paid by seniors was $5.30 in 1970; its now $93.50 – 1,664% inflation; (and up 70% past 5 years)
example: several generations ago a person worked 1.4 months per year to pay for government; he now works 5 months.
And in the past, one wage-earner families lived well and built savings with minimal debt, many paying off their home and college-educating children without loans. How about today?
Few citizens know that a few years ago government changed how they measure and report inflation, as if that would stop it – – but families know better when they pay their bills for food, medical costs, energy, property taxes, insurance and try to buy a house.
Is inflation a threat to society? Consider this famous quote:
“There is no subtler, no surer means of overturning the existing basis of society than to debauch the currency. The process engages all the hidden forces of economic law on the side of destruction, and does it in a manner which not one man in a million is able to diagnose.” Lord John Maynard Keynes (1883-1946), renowned British economist.
DEFINITION OF INFLATION:
Inflation is the loss of a constant purchasing value of the dollar,
caused by an increase out of ‘thin air’ of the supply of money and debt creation by the financial system

Translated into layman’s terms, when the president determines a national emergency has occurred, the president can declare to the office of the presidency powers usually assumed by dictators to direct any and all government and business activities until the emergency is declared over.

The Bush administration has been a catastrophe. Its failures are unprecedented. Energy prices are at all time highs. The US is deeply in debt and dependent on foreign creditors. The dollar has lost 60 per cent of its value against other tradable currencies, and its reserve currency status, the basis of American power, is in doubt. The US has lost millions of middle class jobs which have been replaced with low paid domestic service jobs.
Stephen Jarislowsky, a billionaire money manager and investor the Canadian newspaper Globe and Mail bills as the Canadian Warren Buffet, has told a parliamentary committee Canada and the United States both should abandon their national dollar currencies and move to a regional North American currency as soon as possible.

This library is a collection of over 900 articles and speeches written by Congressman Ron Paul.
To understand his ideas, just review what he has written over the past 10 years.
“They’re getting awfully frightened,” said Paul, “I think we are a threat to the establishment, and they represent the establishment.”
“I see these people as very insecure – they don’t understand what freedom is about and they have to resort to this threatening….”

Can you put a price on faith? That is the question churchgoers are asking as the tradition of tithing — giving 10% of your income to the church — is increasingly challenged. Opponents of tithing say it is a misreading of the Bible….
From The Associated Press:
Former ORU Regent Harry McNevin, who quit the board in 1987 because of the misspending he alleged he witnessed, called the resignation “inevitable.”
“You can’t take the sacrifices of God’s people and use them any old way,” he said. “It’s been 20 years that they’ve been doing the same things that I became aware of.”
“We still haven’t heard any admission of wrongdoing or any kind of humility or contrition.”
“We can do this the easy way or the hard way, but it’s going to have to get done.”
John Rockefeller said, “Competition is a sin.”
G. Edward Griffin:
“Absolutely! All of his biographers quoted him on that. So they began to look for ways to eliminate their competition, and of course, if they couldn’t beat them in the open marketplace, which was the old way of eliminating competition, now they were looking for new ways, and that was to form monopolies and cartels – to go into joint ventures with competing firms so that they could no longer compete on price or markets, patents and processes. They would come together and form a cartel, and then they wouldn’t have to compete and they could share the market. Well, that was what was happening at the turn of the century; and lo and behold, when you look at these men sitting around the table at a clubhouse on Jekyll Island, all of a sudden you realize, “Oh my gosh, the Federal Reserve System is a CARTEL.” And that is exactly what it is. It is not a government agency. It is a cartel no different than the banana cartel, the oil cartel, or any other. It just happens to be a banking cartel. That is the second thing that emerges from the study of what happened on Jekyll Island.”
Weifang is the most notorious region in mainland China for persecuting Falun Gong practitioners. Over 40 types of torture methods have been reported to be employed in Weifang. The number of Falun Gong practitioners tortured and abused to death in Weifang is the highest among all third tier cities in China. At least 121 Falun Gong practitioners have been tortured to death in the city by end of 2006.
