10 Reasons To Cancel Cable NOW!

Please share this post with anyone you know and love who still pays for cable TV. I am finally calling to disconnect my cable TV. I don’t need it anymore. (I actually never did – I always knew it; but I never knew how important it was to take a stand against it.) 2012 is the year that we should all try to reconnect to what is real. I mean – really real. And what is true and right for each of us. Increasingly it’s become apparent that television does not give us reality- and probably never did. I mean, they called it the BOOB TUBE back in the 50s didn’t they? It it has only gotten worse since then. Way worse.

Comprehensive List Of Bartering Websites

Historically, the act of bartering has flourished in times of monetary crisis, such as when the currency in a country has become unstable (e.g. Hyperinflation or a deflationary spiral) or currency is simply unavailable for conducting normal purchasing transactions.

It should come as no surprise then, that the number of people using bartering websites has exploded as of late. With more people struggling financially, families are avoiding the department stores and shopping malls and doing their shopping right from their home computers. Of course, in most cases, you can’t really call it shopping, because there is no money changing hands.

106 Government Agencies Gain Permission to Use Drones ‘Domestically’

These are interesting times to say the least.  Whether We the People like it or not, the world is changing rapidly, especially concerning how the citizenry is governed.  As I have said before on several occasions, a strong government is necessary to maintain law and order.  However, when corporate entities and the US government decide that those very same laws that have maintained peace, prosperity, and stability are merely an obstacle to their power, then tyranny is at the door.

In a recent article from CNSNews.com, it states that 106 government agencies have been able to acquire FAA authorization to deploy drones to fly over American cities, towns, farms, villages, gardens, parks, schools, and churches.

Army Suicides This Year Exceed 2012 Combat Deaths in Afghanistan

The number of suicides among U.S. Army active duty and reserve personnel in 2012 is higher than the total combined military fatalities from Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan over the same timeframe.

Even without Army data for October, the number of deaths believed to be suicides among U.S. Army personnel from January through September still surpass the combined military combat deaths in Afghanistan from January up to October 22.

In 2012, there have been a total of 247 suspected suicides among Army active and reserve duty personnel. Of those, 158 have been confirmed as suicides and 89 remain under investigation.

According to the Afghanistan Index database maintained by the Brookings Institution, there have been 222 combined military deaths in 2012 among active and reserve components from “hostile causes,” as of Sept. 28. (p. 11 Figure 1.17)

An additional 40 military fatalities were the result of “non-hostile causes,” which means they were fatalities not caused by the Taliban, insurgency forces or Afghan forces – so-called “green-on-blue” attacks.
