Larry,

I totally agree, I ended up reading this entire article to my girlfriend and she listened.  I am trying any way I can to wake people up to the reality.  It is hard but important fwiw

DrKrbyLuv, castlewp,

… every single day I do my best to alert people from all walks of life to the reality that we face with the Three E’s. Every day, I meet people that choose not to participate. Slowly now, and recently, the number of people that are facing up to fact rather than believing in mainstream garb are rising. I hope you gain some comfort in that. The more that are facing fact, the more chance that your families won’t only hear your continual ‘real’ fears, but others, along similar lines, will hopefully finally drive your message home to them …

Best,

Paul

Paul,

Check this video out.  I sent this to a friend who lives in Vegas and it certainly slapped him in the face.  The economy has really hit Vegas very hard and here is a look of what is going on there.  Which by the way will happen everywhere soon.

    Re: The “No Problem” Mentality

I had a short but interesting conversation with a  total stranger the other night who has a small business with a fleet of 20 cars…  I broached the subjects close to our hearts and was told, "I don’t stress out about these things, I’m a Christian".

So there you go you bunch of whingers, what’s to worry about, the rapture will get you all….!!  No problem.

Mike, please don’t start discriminating against Christians in here. We are leaving you alone. *wink*

I think a lot of people have the No Problem mentality out of fear.  The current crisis facing our nation is similar to an individual being told they have an incurable life-threatening disease.  One of the first stages of death is denial.  I know I was like that when I first started stumbling across all the truths concerning our economy, environment and society.  Denial is totally understandable.  Like the shocking news of having an incurable disease, many individuals have blindly lived with beliefs and expectations that life was going to be a certain way.  When individuals like us come along and start to shine some light onto the truth, we have the capability to shatter a person’s reality. 

 

It’s much more comforting for individuals to live in denial than to awake to the truth and be in a total state of anger and shock about what is really taking place in the world.  I know the first few months I started uncovering the truths about our world and society, I was deeply hurt, angry, and at times depressed.  My reality totally shifted and everything I had been working for and had expected in the future came crashing down in a matter of weeks.

 

But I think a lot of us realize that there is hope once you have uncovered the truth and learned to live a life centered on the truth.  I think more than telling a person about the truths concerning our society, is to show a person that it is possible to find joy in spite of challenging times.  I’ve met people who were dying from cancer, yet had a positive outlook on life.  Their strength encouraged me for when I will one day face my death. 

 

I think the truths concerning our world are similar.  It’s much easier to take the hidden truths about our society from a person who lives life with zest and joy in spite of uncontrollable and external circumstances, than to take the news from someone who is always angry and complaining about how bad things are.

    The “No Problem” Mentality

A lot of the No Problem mentality in the US derives from the presence of 100+ Million hard core Christians in our midst.

A major part of the Christian ideology is, don’t worry about real life, because that will “take care of itself”.

Having had software stolen from me, I tried to explain to one of the hardcore Christians at the Y, that it is de-moralizing for creative technical types, to see someone like Mark Zuckerberg being given Venture Capital to develop a company around software that he stole.

His answer … when Jews commit crimes, it’s a sign that Jesus is coming back.  Which makes him feel good !

Literally, he said that.

    The “No Problem” Mentality

Well, whether you feel demoralized or hopeful your software was still stolen. So which was the better outlook?
