If you spend some time thinking about all of the tooth care commercials running on television now, do you notice how many of them are for getting your teeth absolutely white? Another oft used marketing approach is telling people that all of the bacteria in their mouths is bad. You will see, by reading this article, that it’s easy to get led astray by marketing so you need to learn the truth about properly caring for your teeth and your gums.

You can drastically cut down on trapped food particles by doing a water rinse after eating. No need to gargle, but you want to move the water around so it removes trapped particles. This is exactly the kind of thing we were talking about; simple things you can do that will make a difference.

If you want, it is fine to swallow the water after you rinse with it. So this will work great if you are not in a position to brush after lunch while at work.

If you have never talked to your dentist about the best way to brush and care for your teeth, then you should during the next visit. What you will find are specific recommendations that are based on your exact situation. If you have ever checked out all the different kinds of toothbrushes, then you know there are so many different kinds. My dentist told me long ago to avoid using the hard bristle brush.

Those countries that are among the more developed will see a higher rate of sugars consumers. Just by eating white sugar in your foods does not necessarily inflate your sugar intake. The perpetrator in this case is the processed foods you are consuming. Time is a valuable commodity and those raising a child on their own are the most pressed for time. Therefore, you would of course turn to methods that will save you time and money. This is a routine that is not easily broken because it is can be easier. One option would be to diminish the processed foods you consume and replace them with a healthier option.

One of the most frustrating situations is if your gums have receded prematurely. So be sure you take action on these tips and prevent the worst from happening.

Baby Car Seats -How to Select the Best One http://teacherspublications.com/baby-car-seats-how-to-select-the-best-one/ http://teacherspublications.com/baby-car-seats-how-to-select-the-best-one/#comments Wed, 13 Jun 2012 10:35:09 +0000 sombri http://teacherspublications.com/?p=754 It is very important that you put your child in a good car seat when riding in your vehicle. Of all the accessories you will purchase for your child, their car seat is by far the most important. When you are on the road, you need to be prepared for anything. In this article, we will be advising you on important points to check out when finding you baby car seat.

One brand of baby car seat that many parents have been very satisfied with is the Chicco Keyfit 30 Infant Car Seat and Base. This is one baby car seat that is designed to protect babies of varying sizes from newborns all the way up to weights of thirty pounds. This means you won’t have to replace this baby car seat for quite a while. This baby seat has a five-point harness that you can adjust with one hand if necessary, which is useful when you’re on the move. Your baby’s safety is increased by a seat pad that’s thick and able to absorb shocks and impact that might occur in a vehicle.

All baby car seats come with a harness. This keeps the babies secure in the seats. Determining whether or not a car seat is good has to do with the quality of the harness itself. Whether your baby is wearing different clothes, or if they have grown, the harness must be adjusted for a variety of reasons. As long as the harness can be easily adjusted, then you probably have found a viable baby car seat. Try not to get a unit where the adjustment for the harness is located in the back because it is difficult to actually manipulate. When reading customer reviews of baby car seats, look for comments on how convenient the harness is to adjust.

When looking at car seats for babies, some are made for infants, and others are convertible car seats for toddlers. As your children get older, they will need different car seats. A convertible car seat helps in this area because of its adjustability. It is essential that you get a car seat that will adequately protect your baby. It is, understandable, why some parents try to save money. If you want to get a convertible car seat (which is perfect for larger babies), check the manufacturer’s guidelines for weight before you one. Babies and toddlers that have these types of car seats that adjust will typically fit because of the extra part is adjustable.

Therefore, it only makes sense that if and when we have a child in our vehicle; we are responsible for providing a safe car seat for them. Given the fact that the car seat may be the sole item responsible for making you child safe in your vehicle; it must be treated as a priority, unlike some of the other things you may inherit from other siblings or other kids. Considering that the safety of your child is all you are concerned about when you purchase a car seat; make sure you have taken their specific needs into account and remember some of the ideas we have laid out for you also.

Big Size Work Boots – How to Choose the Correct Pair http://teacherspublications.com/big-size-work-boots-how-to-choose-the-correct-pair/ http://teacherspublications.com/big-size-work-boots-how-to-choose-the-correct-pair/#comments Wed, 13 Jun 2012 08:20:07 +0000 sombri http://teacherspublications.com/?p=752 If you need work boots for big sizes, you have quite a few options nowadays. Aside from more stores carrying larger shoe sizes now, you can also find many online retailers who specialize in shoes for big sizes. You’ll probably find what you are looking for at one of the companies that make work boots in larger sizes. Keep the tips below in mind when shopping for larger sized work boots.

Many big men’s clothing shops may carry work boots for larger size feet too. In fact many of these specialty stores will carry a variety of larger sized shoes and work boots in addition to clothing. Make sure you are paying close attention to the brand and quality of the boots these shops may carry as they are not always of great quality. You’ll find a larger selection of boots in your size online at these shops too. Many of these stores have a higher chance of carrying your larger size than an average store would. Work boots for large sizes can be crafted from a range of substances, so you should opt in accordance with your requirements and what you believe are the most comfortable. Leather is the most customary textile that shoes are constructed out of, and work boots constructed with full grain leather are rather heavy-duty and supportive. Conversely, this material weighs more and is less breathable than lighter materials like nylon. If you want something more flexible and breathable, a good choice is a combination of nylon mesh and leather. Nevertheless, if you are in need of boots that are waterproof or created for a bleak climate or working conditions, full grain leather is the most excellent option.

One factor you have to consider when looking at work boots for big sizes is how high you want your boots to be. Cowboy boots are often tall but work boots are available in a variety of boot heights. Many people prefer a taller boot when their legs and ankles need protection for whatever reason. Some people also like the look of tall boots. If you ride a motorcycle, you may want taller boots to provide more protection. On the other hand, if you live in a climate where it gets hot, taller boots will make your legs feel hotter. How tall you want your work boots to be is up to you, but it’s something to keep in mind when shopping for them. There are of course many factors to think about when shopping for work boot in any size but especially larger sized. The climate you work in, the work you do, the comfort you need and the fit you must have are all important factors. When shopping for big boots use the above information as a guideline to get you started. You’ll want to pay attention to what your feet are telling you when you are trying on new boots they won’t lie.

What to Consider When You Shop for Hoop Earrings http://teacherspublications.com/what-to-consider-when-you-shop-for-hoop-earrings/ http://teacherspublications.com/what-to-consider-when-you-shop-for-hoop-earrings/#comments Wed, 13 Jun 2012 02:25:28 +0000 sombri http://teacherspublications.com/?p=748 At least one pair of hoop earrings can be found in almost every woman’s jewelry box. This ever popular piece of jewelry has been around for many centuries. Because there are so many places to shop for hoop earrings, finding a great pair has never been easier. However, when you want a pair of hoop earrings, you have to think about where you’ll be wearing them, what kind you prefer and how much you can afford to spend on them. Use the following tips and suggestions as you look for your perfect pair of hoop earrings.

Hoop earrings can be small and humble or big and celebratory, so you’ll need a bunch of different styles, depending on your purpose and your partiality. We’ll be taking a look at techniques for coming across the optimal pair of hoop earrings for you, despite the occasion you require them for.

Silver hoop earrings are a great selection for many women, in particular if they have a cap on the amount of money they can spend, as they are not as high priced as gold earrings. This doesn’t mean that you need to let go of the prettiness or excellence though, as silver can be just as appealing as gold. Silver goes particularly well with black or dark attire, which is why you’ll generally see people at classy and artistic social occasions wearing them. You can find many varieties of silver hoop earrings, and they can be made with large or small hoops. Sterling silver hoop earrings are very trendy, and these can be seen in a plethora of styles. Silver hoop earrings can be bare and austere or incredibly pleasing to the eye, depending on the reason you want them.

Traditional hoops have a circular shape but they can be in other shapes, too. Those who prefer a slightly unconventional style may prefer hoops with a square shape or even a deliberately misshapen hoop. Because hoops from ancient cultures weren’t perfect by modern standards, misshapen hoops work well for a more primitive look. Also, if you want something a little different, unusually shaped hoops are distinctive.

The world may never tire of hoop earrings as more new styles are being introduced all the time. Regardless of the style you want or the size of the hoops, you can find the perfect pair of hoop earrings. Keep the above information in mind as you search for a pair of hoop earrings. No matter what kind of hoop earrings you buy, the most important thing is that they look great on you.

Guidelines You Need When Shopping For Hockey Skates http://teacherspublications.com/guidelines-you-need-when-shopping-for-hockey-skates/ http://teacherspublications.com/guidelines-you-need-when-shopping-for-hockey-skates/#comments Tue, 12 Jun 2012 18:40:26 +0000 sombri http://teacherspublications.com/?p=746 When it comes to speed balance and comfort playing hockey the importance of the right skates is invariably understood. For the beginner finding the perfect pair of skates is a challenge you will have to contend with. This article aims to help you out with that challenge.

You’ll find a wide selection of hockey skates are available online and in local stores.

A general rule of thumb is to never buy a pair of skates that you don’t know extremely well without first trying the skates on. Don’t make the decision to buy online, no matter how wonderful the bargain may seem, until you’ve at least tried the skate on in a local store. That way, if it fits properly you can always go back online and order it. You almost always have the option of returning purchases that are made online but the process can be time consuming and it can eat into the savings with shipping fees. The problem for most new skaters is that you don’t realize the skates don’t fit until you’ve been wearing them for quite some time.

Make sure the skates are sharpened at your earliest convenience. Manufacturers will not do this before they send them to various stores. You’ll need to get the blades sharpened somewhere else if you buy them from any retailer that isn’t a sporting goods store. You must take excellent care of your blades and keep them sharp if you want the best possible performance from your skates. Aside from getting them sharpened when you first buy them, you should have this done after every ten hours of play at most.

Find out exactly what items and/or services are included in the price of the skates.

For instance, skates require frequent sharpening and must be sharpened immediately after purchase. Some specialty shops will throw in some sharpenings when you buy a pair of skates. Adjustments can often be made through these small shops if the skates are too small – unfortunately the only option for skates that are too large is exchanging the skates. There are a few specialty shops that offer a feature known as baking in which the skate is “baked” in order to mold to your foot for a closer fit. It’s important to ask before you buy the skates though as most shops charge extra for these services. Make sure you are taking the time to pick your skates carefully in order to create either a best friend relationship with them or a worst enemy relationship. The above tips will be most helpful when seeking your perfect pair of hockey skates. If you’re new to the game, you may have to experiment a little to find a brand and size that’s just right for you. You will notice right away the difference in your performance after you’ve narrowed your choices enough to finally make the decision in which skates you will purchase.

Ruth asks…

How can I restore my backup for my iPod?

OK, so I backed up my iPod over iCloud. Then I restored it while jailbreaking. But how can I go back to how my iPod was before? My camera roll pics are gone, and the apps plus music are too. I know that the apps and music are on itunes, but I put specific apps and songs on there, so I need them back the way they were before, so I don’t want to re-put all the apps on there and then delete all the ones I don’t want. Or for the music either. Plus I can’t get my camera roll pics back? How can I get it back? Tips? Suggestions? Ideas? Do you have this problem? Here is some information and what I have tried:

Information:
I use Windows xp.
4th Generation iPod ios 5.0.1

Here is what I have tried:
-I went to Settings>>iCloud>>Storage and Backup>>Manage Storage>>(I clicked my iPod under Backups)>>And then under Backup Options, it shows all my apps I had, Camera Roll, and so on. But I can’t do anything with this. Might be helpful.
-I went to Itunes>>Device>>Right Mouse Click>>Restore from Backup. Didn’t help!!!

I have my notes, contacts, mail, and settings back to normal. Nothing else. I want my apps, my music, and my photos back!!! Please help!

vermins answers:

You need to do the apps & music yourself. If u backed it up to icloud; you go to where the photos are and there shud be an option as to where you can sync them to your iPod.
I jailbroke mine a year ago when icloud didn’t exist. My photos just stayed there. I used greenpoison to jailbreak mine(:

Your Questions About Think And Grow Rich Quotes http://teacherspublications.com/your-questions-about-think-and-grow-rich-quotes/ http://teacherspublications.com/your-questions-about-think-and-grow-rich-quotes/#comments Mon, 11 Jun 2012 11:59:04 +0000 vermins http://teacherspublications.com/your-questions-about-think-and-grow-rich-quotes/

Carol asks…

Can someone PLEASE help me think of a hook for my essay?

THE ESSAY IS NOT DONE this is just a rough, rough, rough draft of my body paragraphs so it may not all make sense, but abasically its about suffering, pleasure, and dissatisfaction in the book siddhartha and in the rest of the world so i need a quote, and anecdote, an analogy some kind of hookd THANK YOU
Along Siddhartha’s search for enlightenment, he embraces both the spiritual world and the material world. He learns to live a life of suffering and learns to live a life of self-indulgences and pleasure. However, Siddhartha is continuously dissatisfied with each lifestyle and changes the course of his life until he eventually reaches enlightenment. Suffering plays a major role in Siddhartha’s journey to enlightenment. When one suffers, he or she experiences and endures tribulation. However, suffering can be seen as involuntary in which someone is subjected to misery; resulting in physical or emotional pain. Suffering may also be voluntary in which one chooses to suffer until they feel indifferent to pain. I realized this when looked out the window and saw an overweight jogger running up my street. With his head held high, he took long strides, powered by a rush of euphoria and endorphins. As he reached the end of the climb to the top of the street, exhaustion overcame his body and his strides began to slow down. However, the jogger willed himself to continue without respite.
Siddhartha first endures suffering when he leaves the comforts of being a Brahmin to join the samanas. During his training of ascetic practices with the samanas, Siddhartha completely denies his body “Siddhartha had a single goal before him, one and one only: to become empty, empty of thirst, empty of desire, empty of dreams, empty of joy and pain” (13). He voluntarily suffers by enduring physical pain, and gives up his clothing and food. Through Siddhartha’s martyrdom, he learns to grow indifferent to pain.
“Keeping silence, Siddhartha stood in the vertical blaze of the sun, glowing with pain, glowing with thirst, and stood until he no longer felt any pain or thirst.” (14)
“He walked the path of self-distancing through pain, through voluntary endurance of suffering of pain, of hunger, of thirst, of exhaustion.” (15)

Pleasure is a feeling of happy satisfaction and enjoyment. One may experience pleasure by finding joy in life experiences. One may also find pleasure through desires and self-indulgence, resulting in momentary and limited happiness. I had an experience in which I observed such pleasure when I was ten years old and my family took a trip to Beverly Hills, and affluent city in Los Angeles County. During our trip we walked through Rodeo Drive to look at the ridiculously overpriced clothing stores. Inside the Louis Vuitton store women walked around observing purses and shoes. Their wealth was evinced by their designer jeans and the smell of their new leather boots and Chanel perfume.
Worldly and materialistic pleasures are displayed in Siddhartha during Siddhartha’s life as a merchant: “Siddhartha had learned how to do business, how to wield power over people, how to amuse himself with women, had had learned to wear handsome clothing, to command servants, to bathe in fragrant waters.” (62)
“Years went by; swathed in well-being, Siddhartha scarcely felt them fade. He had become rich, he long owned his own home with servants and a garden outside the city, by the river. People liked him; they came to him when they needed money or advice.” (61)
“Only slowly, amidst his growing riches, Siddhartha himself had adopted something of the nature of the child people, something of their childishness and of their scruples.” (62)

Dissatisfaction is the state or attitude of being unsatisfied, discontented, or displeasured. One may experience dissatisfaction with his or her own life or self. People could also become dissatisfied with other people or the environment surrounding them, resulting in revolution, rebellion, or uprising. The people of Libya have demonstrated dissatisfaction with their government and their ruler, Muammar el-Qaddafi. Qaddafi ruled ruthlessly for forty years, building his rule on a legion of blind followers and family and tribal alliances, won over by Libya’s oil production profits. Libya’s dissatisfaction with Qaddafi resulted in a revolt throughout the country and eventually he was taken out of power and killed in Surt. After his death the country was declared liberated and began the process of creating a new constitution and elected government. Dissatisfaction is also present in the United States as well through the recent Occupy Wall Street demonstrations. The Occupy Wall Street activists began protests in New York’s financial district to demonstrate against corporate greed, social inequality, and the power of major banks and corporations. The group claims to represent the frustration of the 99 percent of disadvantaged Americans who are upset with the greed and corruption of the one percent…

Richard asks…

Christianity and socialism?

Dislike of socialism and communism appears to be a common trait among the christians I’ve met and seen in the media, why is this so? The more I think about it the greater the link between the separate ideologies grows. The religious quote “a rich man has a lesser of a chance to enter into heaven than a camel has of passing through the eye of a needle” is a statement of contempt for the wealthy, a strong theme in communism. Further more one of the ten commandments states “thou shalt not covet” meaning people shouldn’t keep things to themselves/for themselves and thus must share all private property ans possessions with the community, which is communism.
On the socialist side Jesus healed and cleansed people without asking for pay and encouraged others to do the same. There was also a quote he made that implied people with enough money should welcome the homeless into their own house and care for them.
With themes and messages like these it seems strange that so many christians should hold contempt for socialism and call atheists communists. But why do they do this?

vermins answers:

Christianity and Communism have a lot in common. See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MK9kde6Nh68

Ruth asks…

long post but worth reading quoted from a user here. do you agree with this statement??

before you answer you have to drop any preconceived notions for or against feminism. i agree with a lot of it. i also think that women deserve equal pay and are equal in every way to men.

This will go against almost all you have been taught to believe about men and women for the past pathetic 60 years. But, having lived through this, I see just how true it is and how it was done

Feminism is a grotesque fraud perpetrated on society by the governing elite. It is designed to weaken the American social and cultural fabric in order to introduce a “friendly” fascist New World Order. Its advocates are sanctimonious charlatans who have grown rich and powerful from it. They include a whole class of liars and moral cripples who work for the elite in various capacities: government, education and the media. These imposters ought to be exposed and ridiculed. Betty Friedan and Gloria Steinem were NOT what they were presented to be.

We were taught to abandon our femininity and challenge men for the masculine role. Wewere told heterosexuality and family by nature is oppressive to women. Domestic violence was publicized to trample woman’s tender tendrils of trust. As a result, the divorce rate doubled and the birth rate was cut in half. One third of all births are now out-of-wedlock. The ability to commit to a relationship is almost unheard of among the young. Today they “hook up” and move on. Men are reduced to no more than dogs urinating on women as if they were hydrants. How often have I heard a single mother refer to her ex as a “sperm donor”? But no one is at fault here, we are ALL VICTIMS. Men, women, children all.

Not all women need to marry and have children but the vast majority do. We are a bonding species. Children represent our organic growth. As recently as fifty years ago, the role of wife and mother was honored. After 1960, society was subjected to the vicious campaign of social engineering designed to disparage these roles and make women seek fulfillment in career instead. We got caught up in the fun of burning our bras and being led by the evil ones.

Led by the Rockefeller Foundation, this media campaign was made to look spontaneous and “modern.” In fact, the goal was to decrease the birth rate and destabilize society by pitting men against women. Divide and conquer. The other reason for the feminist action was so that the bankers could CHARGE DOUBLE THE INCOME TAX on a family. With two working members there was more to steal by their dishonest tax laws. (These people, NOT our governments, own the Federal Reserve). Aaron Russo discusses this in this short flick:

http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=…

Feminism has done untold damage to civilization. There is no more fundamental yet delicate relationship in society than male and female. On it depends the family, the red blood cell of society. Nobody with the interests of society at heart would try to divide men and women. Yet the lie that men have exploited women has become the official orthodoxy. The lie that they cheat is part of the propaganda machine. Man loves woman. His first instinct is to nurture (“husband”) and see her thrive. When a woman is happy, she is beautiful. Sure, some men are abusive, but the vast majority are good decent men who have supported and guided their families for millennium. This is why men were so much stronger in character in days gone by. Feminism has robbed them of their rightful position in society. They are not given many opportunities to develop these traits. Abuse is up because these men are frustrated by the termination of their natural tendencies to nurture. No excuses but this is a contributing factor.

The Rockefeller’s cruel regime has tricked women into forgetting that they are part of a natural cycle, and the ages of 18-25 are critical to starting a family. In the same way as the apple tree blossoms in the spring, young women need to marry and have children when nature intended. The Rockefellers want women and men to miss the opportunity to start strong families that will protect them from enslavement by the state.

All of this is calculated to create personal confusion and sow chaos among heterosexuals. As a result, millions of American males are emasculated and divorced from their relationship to family (the world and the future.) The American woman has been hoodwinked into investing herself in a meaningless mundane career instead of the timeless love of her husband and children. Many women have become temperamentally unfit to be wives and mothers.

People who are isolated and alone, stunted and love-starved, are easy to fool and manipulate. Without the healthy influence of two loving parents, so are their children. When both parents work, the children are exposed to government propaganda and manipulation from even younger ages.

Women’s oppression is a lie. Sex roles were never as rigid as feminists would have us believe. My mother had a successful business in the 1940’s as a private nurse. When my father’s income increased, she was content to quit and concentrate on the children. Women were free to pursue careers if they wanted to. The difference was that their role as wife and mother was understood, and socially validated, as it should be. Yet Stay at home mothers, both Christian and Muslim, are jeered and considered patsies by their more militant sisters.

Sex is an act of possession. You cannot be possessed by many men and ever belong to one. The ability to love/trust dies. The sex act is sacred. It is the ritual enactment of the Act of Creation. The man selects and prepares the special ground and plants his seed. The woman receives and nurtures it. Ultimately, a child is the fruit of love. Sex is an uplifting experience in this loving context. Today women and men settle for so much less. Careless sharing of our flesh has almost killed this concept today. Our children and grandchildren suffer.

We were told to be “smarter, better, faster” than the men we met. This is now echoed in “girl power” as boys are being marginalized in society. No longer does a woman seek a man she can naturally look up to, respect and trust. They waste time on the emotionally immature boys that men have been molded into. Men want power; women want love. Heterosexual union involves the exchange of the two: female power (in the worldly sense) for male love (his power expressed as love.)Two people don’t become one by fighting over the same territory.

It is almost impossible to find a man with a powerful positive vision of life with a central place for a wife in these days. Homosexuality has seriously affected the balance between men in women in numbers. Men have to know what they want, provide leadership and earn trust. The man “makes the house, the woman makes the home. This complementary division of labor is natural. Women need to remember how to be a homemaker and mother. Why do you think fast foods and easy bake junk was promoted until most women have forgotten the basics?

Once the power-for-love arrangement is established, sex roles don’t have to be rigid. The key is that a wife is willing to be First Mate to her Captain because he loves her, looks after her interests and is totally loyal. After that, who does what can be dictated by respective preferences, abilities and practical considerations.

While this was done to women, men were dumbed down and taught rebellion was coooool More separation from healthy mainstream attitudes. They were drugged and mind altered through the hippy days. They were taught a man has no responsibility to a woman because she is willing to give it away. “Free love” was NOT free. And so here we are.

Personally I feel RIPPED OFF. I believed this crap that was fed to us so insidiously. In doing so I lived a life I would not have chosen had I known better!

I hope I have expressed myself well. Feminism brought a few positive changes. But when you weight the good against the bad you will find, it was all a big sham created by the CIA, the Rockefellers and the Communist women who led us straight to hell.

This is a wonderful site
since feminism divorce rates have been shot up drasticaly and its usualy the women who make the choice. and they try to suck the men dry for all there worth. i am a divorce lawyer and see this ALOT. id say that 40 % of the time its due to feminist ideaology. the rest is other things such as abuse cheating etc.

vermins answers:

Well, I don’t agree with it. Obviously the person who wrote it has no understanding of what feminism is. She probably fears that her chances of marriage is already so low that she’s afraid to speak out. So her only recourse is to behave total opposite of what feminism is, to stay on the good side of patriarchy.

Feminism is not about hating men or trying to be like them. Why would we want to be men? Women play an important part in life; just as men do.

Why should women want men to “take care of them”? They’re not helpless, handicapped, or retarded. For that matter, why would men want a “dead weight” for a wife? I believe that men and women should be emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual support for one another.

I don’t believe homosexuality has any effect on anyone’s life unless they let it. That’s possibly the way homophobia effects those who fear it and don’t understand it. They have their own lives and so do we?

Confident women don’t have to fear anything. They will love and be loved for who they are, not what a narrow-minded society attempts to force upon her. We are not cattle to be owned. We are not servants. We are women who can think, make decisions, support and be supported by an equally confident man.

If we choose to stay at home with the family, it is our choice because it’s what we love doing, not because it’s the law of nature. We will love and serve our husbands as he loves and serves us.

It is not impossible to find a man with a powerful positive vision of life if one is powerful and posittive themselves. We attract that which we are equal to. If anyone believes it’s impossible, it’s because she has a low self-esteem of herself and is full of negativity towards life.

You simply attract that which you believe. If you feel worthless, you attract worthlessness. If you feel confident, upbeat, happy, positive, you attract what you are. :-) It’s all really quite simple.

Lizzie asks…

Why Is it “God’s grace” that makes some rich and others poor?

Why do people think this?

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/us_gourmet_salvation

The 11th paragraph is this quote: “These were regular, ordinary people, just like us, who were hungry,” she said. “And you think, ‘there but for the grace of God.’”

So if God’s grace that keeps them from such poverty then isn’t also God, being the “alpha and omega” that puts others in that situation?

What is so wrong with the idea that we all have something in life to overcome and we need each others help to grow and learn?

vermins answers:

I don’t believe it’s ‘god’s’ grace at all. The circumstances we are in help to mold our character and spirit. Only the individual would know ‘why’ their circumstances are such as they are as well as what they need to learn from them, rich or not rich.

I can be Rich in Spirit as well as in finances, but the Spirit definitely comes first as far as maturing and developing goes. At one point of my life I had lost everything I owned or had. I would have never considered sharing with another human being had I not been placed in this situation. I came out of it a better human being, and without religion of any kind because I put forth my own efforts and used the intelligence I was born to use.

To sum up, “don’t give because you need a ticket to ‘heaven’ or a ticket for ‘salvation’, give just for the simple fact that it’s needed, and for no other reason.” (not you personally)

Donald asks…

What do you think about the types of Books I have read?

I have just started reading A LOT since around October, I think a lot anyways, and I was curious what you think of my reading materials. Anyways I am 20 and I realized I enjoy Non-fiction books.

THINK LIKE A BILLIONAIRE BECOME A BILLIONAIRE by SCOTT ANDERSON- Just about the way people with a lot of money think. It was also about multi millionaires as well.

WHY WE WANT YOU TO BE RICH by DONALD TRUMP & ROBERT KIYOSAKI- This one is kind of harder to explain with few words so I am going to plagarize a summary somewhere on the internet about this book like I did with Glenn Becks book.

The wildly financially successful authors of this book state, early on, that a reader will not find in its pages specific advice on how to make or invest money. It’s more a book of philosophy (note the “why” in the title), and if it’s not exactly Kierkegaardian in scope or language, this collaboration of real estate magnate and rags-to-riches financial guru manages to entertain and to inform. Written in bite-size chunks and adorned with quotes (some from the authors’ previous works or speeches) and graphs, it explains why some people get rich and others… well, don’t. Some tales are shopworn: the many references to Warren Buffett are tales well told, for example, but what works best are the aphorisms and the personality type descriptions within the “CASHFLOW Quadrant”—no matter what you do for a living, in your heart are you an E, an S, a B or an I? (Key: E=employee; B=big business owner; S=self-employed, specialist or small business owner; I=investor.) But Trump and Kiyosaki (Rich Dad, Poor Dad) together are a strangely winning combination (they’ve published this book jointly and privately—and a portion of its profits will be donated to charity). Bottom line: these Messrs. Money-bags know their business. We’re talking billionaires here, and really, how can you argue with success?
I know about the grammar errors. I just did not care to fix them.

vermins answers:

From this post I have deduced that you are a young white male who is questioning your beliefs or lack there of. You are a big fan of MMA probably athletic. Concerned yet perhaps quite disappointed in the state of your country, you desire to be wealthy (quickly if possible) doesn’t put much stock in the opinion of strangers (BRAVO) and are animal lover. You seem well rounded.
