Money is good. more money is better. It's true. Why can't we just accept that? In other areas of life, we let go of conventional wisdom when science proves it wrong. It's getting to the point where the conventional wisdom about conventional wisdom is that none of it is true. But with money, for whatever reason, we hold on tightly to our misinformation. You've heard the following six financial "rules" before. We don't know where they came from. We just know what the latest research says: They're dead wrong.As Gertrude Stein supposedly noted, "Whoever said money can't buy happiness didn't know where to shop." According to a recent Pew Research Center study, happiness rises in a nearly straight line through eight levels of annual income: Only 23 percent of people earning less than $20,000 a year say they're happy, whereas 50 percent of those making $150,000 annually can't wipe the smiles off their faces. This is called the absolute income effect. It works in reverse, too: … [Read more...] about Actually, Money Can Buy Happiness

About a year ago or so I wrote and article about the New World’s Order implementation and furtherance of the eugenics plan. This plan was let out of the closet, so to speak, by Dr. Richard Day who was a Professor of Pediatrics at Mount Sinai Medical School in New York. He also served as Medical Director of Planned Parenthood Federation of America and was a profound atheist and an insider of the New World Order. Dr. Day gave a lecture to the Pittsburgh Pediatric Society in 1969 where he let the hushed cat out of the bag. His lecture was taped and those tapes were finally transcribed. Basically, the agenda is to corrupt morality, encourage unrestricted sense gratification, and eliminate or ridicule religiosity, spirituality, common sense, and the concept of right or wrong. As I have a copy of those tape transcriptions I will endeavor to share them with you so you can see the realities that have come and will continue to come our way. It will be up to each and every one of us to … [Read more...] about Population control through chaos, quarrel and confusion.
