Marc Faber: America only Produces Prostitutes and Beer

Marc Faber : “The federal government is sending each of us a $600 rebate. If we spend that money at Wal-Mart, the money goes to China. If we spend it on gasoline, it goes to the Arabs. If we buy a computer, it will go to India. If we purchase fruit and vegetables, it will go to Mexico, Honduras and Guatemala. If we purchase a good car, it will go to Germa

ny. If we purchase useless crap, it will go to Taiwan and none of it will help the American economy. The only way to keep that money here at home is to spend it on prostitutes and beer, since these are the only products still produced in US.” – Dr. Marc Faber, author of “Gloom, Boom & Doom” said in 2008 commenting on the US Stimulus package.

What Makes You Smile?

What Makes You Smile?

Have you ever taken the time to write down a list entitled: “What Makes Me Smile”?

This is an amazing exercise!

Why? Because every day you need to incorporate an activity from this list into your life.

It also may give you an idea of where your BLISS is!

Realistically, you can’t always Follow Your Bliss as Joseph Campbell professed, yet nothing wrong with following it even for a smidgen of time each day.

And if you are able to incorporate “What makes you smile” into your life, your occupation, your daily existence, WOW! You are so much ahead of so many people in the world!

Give yourself an “A” for the day, and SMILE! 🙂

Religion is like a box of chocolates . . .

An oldie yet goodie. 🙂

Religion is like a box of chocolates . . .

– we keep enjoying it as long as we keep getting what we like.

Do you see that box of chocolates? Yes, the one right there . . . on your lap.

We’re always getting them …. boxes of chocolates.

Sometimes, we receive them when were happy, like a special day, as a gift. Other times we get a box when we’re not feeling too hot, and we – WANT – TO – EAT – THE – WHOLE – BOX.

Sometimes, well we just get a box for – no – special – reason – at all.

Look! Look at your box of chocolates. There are so many to choose from. Where do we begin? There are light chocolates and dark.

Some, I know have creamy centers . . . and some have nuts.

Ah ha… here’s one we’ll try. A light chocolate peanut cluster.

(We’re not very adventuresome at first with our chocolates. It takes awhile to get to know them. )

Taste it. Mmm. . . not bad! We’ll have another.

This time… let’s try a dark. Good choice!

Taste it. Mmm… a creamy fudge center. Maybe we could eat these all day long. What do you think?

But, there are more to try. Look at this one. Isn’t this, uh … strange? It’s in the shape of a…, I don’t know?

Take it out. Examine it. I like the form. Don’t you? It flows . . . freely.

Very, very distinctive. It has a… a spiritual quality. That’s hard to find in a chocolate.

Take a bite. Yes, I know that it is a bit unusual, but take a bite.

Uh-oh.

Kiwi fruit! Too bizarre!

I’ve had enough. I’ll settle for the peanut butter cluster.

Religion … it’s like a box of chocolates.

Bon Apetit.

THINGS WE CAN LEARN FROM DOGS

Things we can learn from dogs . . .

When love ones come home,

always run to greet them.

When it’s in your best interest,

practice obedience.

Eat with gusto and enthusiasm.

Stop when you’ve had enough.

Never pretend to be something

you’re not.

Avoid biting when a simple growl

will do.

On warm days, stop to lie on your

back on the grass.

On hot days, drink lots of water

and lay under a shade tree.

When you’re happy, dance around

and wag your entire body.
