Puerto Rico–first kink in economy with more to come

'Until 2006 [when Bush was setting nation up for Great Recession that triggered the following year] the economy was buoyed by tax incentives for American firms that manufactured there. ... and Puerto Rico’s economy has shrunk virtually every year since. ... No growth and heavy debt are a toxic combination. "
The MOST HARM TO MOST PEOPLE Bush style -- takes time for the full effect to be felt. The Wars and Debt burden -- and his creation of the situation which gave rise to ISIS -- still have some time before their true effect and harm is apparent.
Obama has countered the "no growth" element -- but the Tea Party right-wing anti-American cause is growing in its vehemence and they only have 18 months in which to achieve their agenda.
[NOTE: The subsidies and tactics used in Puerto Rico are identical to those being used throughout Republican States -- attack Social Security which is well below poverty, and keep the minimum wage level below poverty, and you force the society to rely on subsidies like SNAP; once those subsidies are attacked and removed, the economy collapses. It's basic economics and the heart of the republican drive to destroy America ... but, like melting ice caps don't support global warming, the republican base will deny the observed reality.]

However, you know this, and expected something like it, because you read DEATH OVER LIFE …  you did read it?  didn’t you?

Greece in the Caribbean

IT WILL not be long till Congress and the White House start squabbling again about the budget in Washington, DC. But before they create another artificial debt...

REVELATION seems to have called it.

Yet another coincidence, to make the intelligent ant thoughtful ponder what was known 2200 years ago, refined 1900, years ago, and presented as a line, first in the DAVIDIC PROPHECY, A and then in REVELATION:
" The Earth has entered a new period of extinction, a study by three US universities has concluded, and humans could be among the first casualties.

The report, led by the universities of Stanford, Princeton and Berkeley, said vertebrates were disappearing at a rate 114 times faster than normal.

The findings echo those in a report published by Duke University last year.

One of the new study's authors said: "We are now entering the sixth great mass extinction event."

The last such event was 65 million years ago, when dinosaurs were wiped out, in all likelihood by a large meteor hitting Earth.

"If it is allowed to continue, life would take many millions of years to recover and our species itself would likely disappear early on," said the lead author, Gerardo Ceballos."

The DAVIDIC called for half of all life forms to go extinct (die off): REVELATION reduced that figure to a third and specifically placed its occurrence in this century ... by my calculations, based on the Hebrew calender math covered in my book, GENESIS OF GENESIS, the events began in 1929, 1939, 2007/8, and have an event due in 2015/16 -- the latter falling in the year prior to the Hebrew New year which falls in 2017 and so being generally recognized in 2017 as the fall from recognized "global" status of a major national capital.

Ok, So the Pat Robertson types are quiet about prophecy fulfillment; The Islamic nutcases are using it for creating an Islamic State, so as to assert their portion of the prophecies/predictions; and the Republican are doing all they can to qualify Washington as the capital that falls. Republican actions are the basis for the conclusion in my book DEATH OVER LIFE.

Neat seeing science and international media say same thing from a different, unrelated, perspective. Not so neat to see a crazy, ancient, prediction, with an unexplained basis for being fact based, actually come true -- while those who should believe it are actually working to comply with the first possible outcome for themselves ... but that is my book SAINT PAUL'S JOKE -- a book which contributed to an historic event: the second time, in a 1700 year history, that a Pope Resigned.

Have fun kiddies ... if the pattern continues ... we are living out the ancient Chinese curse: MAY YOU LIVE IN INTERESTING TIMES.

Earth 'entering new extinction phase' - US study - BBC News

The Earth has entered a "new period of extinction", a study by three US universities concludes, and humans could be among the first casualties.


Is Greece the Biblical Babylon that shall fall in 2015/16?

This ongoing story about Greece could be related to the title query of "Biblical Prophecy: Are we in the Revelation Era", and the issue raised in DEATH OVER LIFE.
The Greek problem goes to, is related in article to, 2001 and 2008, where 2007/8 coincides with the Great Recession and the related prediction line for basic commodities dated as that year.
While Greece was founded as a set of city-states, I have yet to relate it to the modern world position held by ancient Babylon. Washington does enjoy that position in global thought.
We must note that, in 2013, Ted Cruz stood on the Senate floor reading Dr Seuss and trying to force America into a budgetary default on its debts... an act which would have the son of a preacher man (and Castro communist fighter) to intentionally force America to take the biblical role of Babylon.

Why Greece is in trouble (again)

Why is the euro zone still arguing about Greece? Greece cannot pay its own bills and debts, and is locked out of capital markets. It therefore needs financial...

SheZow–Transgender Cartoon

Today I came across a cartoon series on NetFli: SheZow … a boy inherits a magic superhero ring from his aunt … but it only works for Girls (or when the wearer is imaged as a female; the ring transmutes the boy into a girl)

Think Bruce Jenner becoming Caitlyn Jenner and having it presented to children as his becoming a permanent transsexual male-female superhero.

Ah, the poor right-wing idiots … remember what they made of SpongeBob SquarePants – yelling the  cartoon sponge character was really GAY!

OH what will happen if those idiots actually caught on to 2013 series SheZow.  They obviously avoided it – had they played the Sponge Bob game the series would probably have become a huge success.

Of course, they have Barack Obama to attack … at least for another 18 months … who will be next?  Or will they manage to destroy America before January 2017?

King v. Burwell

Daniel Marans [], at the Huffington Post, wrote a small piece on Obama's statement about the Supreme Court accepting to hear the challenge to the Affordable Care Act as presented in the case of King v. Burwell.  Under the wording of the subsidy provision of ACA -- which means "6.4 million people in 34 states will lose their subsidies, leaving many unable to afford insurance." [Health Care Reform Efforts Throughout History]

This appears to be the research and history as he found it.  In my two books, which referenced the history as Republican based, I started with Reagan's Privatization, Marans doesn't mention that, but does mention COBRA. 

Regardless of minor details, it is clear that the Health Care initiative is largely Republican with clear Democratic acceptance.  Exactly who opposes it? 

Well, Russian Revolution was in February 1917 -- that allowed for the haters to begin asserting that Health Care was "SOCIALIST"... an argument which they still use today.  Granted, the Haters hate and trust that their audience has never read the Bible, therefore do not know that Health Care without means testing is a Mandate imposed upon all "TRUE" Christians. ... SAINT PAUL’ S JOKE -- Jesus was a

Socialist.  Therefore to rant against Socialism is to rant against the basic requirements of being a follower of Jesus.  PLUS Jesus mandated that, if you use the money, you pay the taxes (Look at the face on the coin, and "Render unto Caesar that which is Caesars").

If we are in the Revelation Era -- 2000 years after the era when Jesus walked the Earth and the Hebrew Temple stood in Jerusalem -- which we are ... then Judgment Day, if such is a real thing, will fall hard upon the Right-Wing Allegedly Christian, but clearly ant-Christ, Modern Republican [Tea Party or Conservative] Party.

Fortunately, it appears you are only doomed if you are a “Conservative Abrahamic” [Conservative right-wing Christian,  Israelite Hasidim, or Jihardist Moslem] – secular and Atheistic individuals who care about their neighbor and actually obey the Golden Rule, as defined by Hillel, Jesus and Mohammed, seem to be assured survival.

Former President Theodore Roosevelt champions national health insurance as he unsuccessfully tries to ride his

progressive Bull Moose Party back to the White House.
[Russian Revolution allowed opponents to label this "SOCIALIST"]

President Franklin D. Roosevelt favors creating national health insurance amid the Great Depression but decides to push for Social Security first.

Roosevelt establishes wage and price controls during World War II. Businesses can't attract workers with higher pay

so they compete through added benefits, including health insurance, which grows into a workplace perk.

President Harry Truman calls on Congress to create a national insurance program for those who pay voluntary fees.   The American Medical Association denounces the idea as "socialized medicine" and it goes nowhere.  [AMA members also overcharge the poor and uninsured, and seems to be another group which values DEATH OVER LIFE , even though their job and oath is to save lives.]

John F. Kennedy makes health care a major campaign issue but as president can't get a plan for the elderly through Congress.

President Lyndon B. Johnson's legendary arm-twisting and a Congress dominated by his fellow Democrats lead to

creation of two landmark government health programs: Medicare for the elderly and Medicaid for the poor.

President Richard Nixon wants to require employers to cover their workers and create federal subsidies to help everyone else buy private insurance. The Watergate scandal intervenes.

President Jimmy Carter pushes a mandatory national health plan, but economic recession helps push it aside. 

President Ronald Reagan signs COBRA, a requirement that employers let former workers stay on the company health plan for 18 months after leaving a job, with workers bearing the cost.

Congress expands Medicare by adding a prescription drug benefit and catastrophic care coverage. It doesn't last long. Barraged by protests from older Americans upset about paying a tax to finance the additional coverage, Congress repeals the law the next year.

President Bill Clinton puts first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton in charge of developing what becomes a 1,300-page plan for universal coverage. It requires businesses to cover their workers and mandates that everyone have health insurance. The plan meets Republican opposition, divides Democrats and comes under a firestorm of lobbying from businesses and the health care industry. It dies in the Senate.

Clinton signs bipartisan legislation creating a state-federal program to provide coverage for millions of children in families of modest means whose incomes are too high to qualify for Medicaid.

President George W. Bush persuades Congress to add prescription drug coverage to Medicare in a major expansion of the program for older people.

Hillary Rodham Clinton promotes a sweeping health care plan in her bid for the Democratic presidential nomination.   She loses to Obama, who has a less comprehensive plan.

President Barack Obama and the Democratic-controlled Congress spend an intense year ironing out legislation to require most companies to cover their workers; mandate that everyone have coverage or pay a fine; require insurance companies to accept all comers, regardless of any pre-existing conditions; and assist people who can't afford insurance.

With no Republican support, Congress passes the measure, designed to extend health care coverage to more than 30 million uninsured people. Republican opponents scorned the law as "Obamacare."

On a campaign tour in the Midwest, Obama himself embraces the term "Obamacare" and says the law shows "I do care."

Aging … thoughts

It’s amazing.  As you age your perspective either becomes entrenched, or changes dramatically.

If entrenched, you are either extremely happy and content with your life; but if it changes, you either see that which you did wrong (or could have done better) and regret the bad choices, or come to realize they represent an alternative life – but not really one which would have made you more happy ...  Though it might have made your life easier.
