It's easy to dismiss individual programs that benefit non-citizens until they're put together and this picture emerges. Someone did a lot of research to put together all of this data. Often these programs are buried within other programs making them difficult to find. A Real M Eye Opener WHY is the USA BANKRUPT?You think the war in Iraq was costing us too much?

  This information may be something to remember, as this season will soon be here again... It might be wise to carry a penny in your pocket while working in the yard.......... BEE STINGS ! A couple of weeks ago, I was stung by both a bee and hornet while working in the garden. My arm swelled up, so I went to the doctor. The clinic gave me cream and an antihistamine. The next day the swelling was getting progressively worse, so I went to my regular doctor. The arm was Infected and needed an antibiotic. The doctor told me - ' The next time you get stung, put a penny on the bite for 15 minutes'. That night, my niece was stung by two bees. I looked at the bite and it had already started to swell. So, I taped a penny to her arm for 15 minutes The next morning, there was no sign of a bite We decided that she just wasn't allergic to the sting. Soon, I was gardening outside. I got stung again, twice by a hornet on my left hand. I thought, here I go again to the doctor for another antibiotic. I promptly got my money out and taped two pennies to my bites, then sat and sulked for 15 minutes. The penny took the string out of the bite immediately.In the meantime the hornets were attack

The story is told of an old man who lived on a farm in the mountains of eastern Kentucky with his young grandson.Each morning, Grandpa was up early sitting at the kitchen table reading from his old worn-out Bible. His grandson who wanted to be just like him tried to imitate him in any way he could.. One day the grandson asked, 'Papa, I try to read the Bible just like youbut I don't understand it, and what I do understand I forgetas soon as I close the book. What good does reading the Bible do?' The Grandfather quietly turned from puttingcoal in the stove and said, 'Take this old wicker coal basketdown to the river and bring back a basket of water.' The boy did as he was told, even though all the water leaked outbefore he could get back to the house. The grandfather laughed and said,'You will have to move a little faster next time,' and sent him back to the riverwith the basket to try again. This time the boy ran faster, but again the old wickerbasket was empty before he returned home. Out of breath, he told his grandfatherthat it was 'impossible to carry water in a basket,' and he went to get a bucket instead. The old m

Pass the Banana A professor at CCNY for a physiological psych class told his class about bananas. He said the expression 'going bananas' is from the effects of bananas on the brain. Read on: Never, put your banana in the refrigerator!!! This is interesting. After reading this, you'll never look at a banana in the same way again. Bananas contain three natural sugars - sucrose, fructose and glucose combined with fiber. A banana gives an instant, sustained and substantial boost of energy. Research has proven that just two bananas provide enough energy for a strenuous 90-minute workout. No wonder the banana is the number one fruit with the world's leading athletes. But energy isn't the only way a banana can help us keep fit.It can also help overcome or prevent a substantial number of illnesses and conditions, making it a must to add to our daily diet. Depression: According to a recent survey undertaken by MIND amongst people suffering from depression, many felt much better after eating a banana. This is because bananas contain tryptophan, a type of protein that the body converts into serotonin, known to make you relax, improve your mood and generally mak

This will make even my most liberal friends will chuckle at this one! $100 Bill It's a slow day in the small town of Pumphandle and the streets are deserted. Times are tough, everybody is in debt, and everybody is living on credit. A tourist visiting the area drives through town, stops at the motel, and lays a $100 bill on the desk saying he wants to inspect the rooms upstairs to pick one for the night. As soon as he walks upstairs, the motel owner grabs the bill and runs next door to pay his debt to the butcher. (Stay with this.....and pay attention) The butcher takes the $100 and runs down the street to retire his debt to the pig farmer. The pig farmer takes the $100 and heads off to pay his bill to his supplier, the Co-op. The guy at the Co-op takes the $100 and runs to pay his debt to the local prostitute, who has also been facing hard times and has had to offer her 'services' on credit. The hooker rushes to the hotel and pays off her room bill with the hotel Owner. (Almost done...keep reading) The hotel proprietor then places the $100 back on the counter so the traveler will not suspect anything. At that moment the traveler comes down t

A man in Topeka , Kansas decided to write a book about churches around the country. He started by flying to San Francisco and worked east from there. Going to a very large church, he began taking photographs and making notes.He spotted a golden telephone on the vestibule wall and was intrigued with a sign, which read, 'Calls: $10,000 a minute.' Seeking out the pastor, he asked about the  phone and the sign. The pastor answered that this golden phone was, in fact, a direct line to heaven, and if he paid the price, he could talk directly to GOD. The man thanked the pastor and proceeded on his way. As he continued to visit churches in Seattle , Dallas ,St. Louis , Chicago , Minneapolis and other cities around the United States , he found more phones, with the same sign, and the same answer from each pastor. Finally, he arrived in  'Up North' Michigan . Upon entering a church in Tawas City , MI , behold - he saw the usual golden telephone. But THIS time, the sign read, 'Calls: 35 cents.' Fascinated, he asked to talk to the pastor, 'Reverend,' he said, 'I have been in cities all across the country, andin each church I h

Are you living an "I Mean It" Life?

Wednesday Jan. 11, 2012 Are you living an 'I mean it' life? 'Get upstairs and clean your room right now”... 'I mean it!' “I'm going to start my diet tomorrow”.... 'I mean it!' 'When things slow down, I'll start spending more time with my kids”.... 'I mean it!' 'I can't live like this anymore. Something has to change”.... 'I mean it!'   'I MEAN IT!'   Those three little words carry such significance. They express determination and intention-- an understanding of need for a change. Do you carelessly react to random events in your life, not thinking about where your decisions will ultimately lead? Or do you realize that every moment matters not just today or tomorrow but for all eternity? Instead of groping for significance in a random world, you can begin to live the life God intended for you ... a life of profound meaning, clear purpose, and eternal value. Scripture tells us 'Don't live carelessly unthinkingly. Make sure you understand what the Master wants' (Ephesians 5:17) The entire Bible explains the answer to this question. God created each person to have a loving relationship with Him. Although we are separated from Him by our sin, He m
