Time 2 Escape WIFLI for Friday, Feb 3, 2012

Let's start out with some great wisdom for you to ponder over this weekend. It's a great way to end the week for me, as it coincides perfectly with some life lessons I had this week:
The fulfillment you seek is something you must create as a result of your own responsibility, commitment, discipline and efforts. Get focused, get busy and experience the outstanding joy of living life on your own terms.

— Ralph Marston, from "On your own terms"
I only wish some of the GOP Presidential Pretenders, I mean contenders, would have taken the above advice. It seems that the other two candidates (Newt and Mitt) do not quite get it quite as well as do Ron Paul and Rick Santorum, who I give credit to for their commitment to their beliefs.  I'm just sayin'...

Another good reason for homeschooling, even here in Iowa:

Is This Iowa High School Teaching Students Communism Is Better Than Capitalism? See the Flyer
From ~ Posted on Feb 3, 2012 at 9:25 a.m. by Mike Opelka

This curious flyer was handed out to students studying the history of the Cold War at Roosevelt High School in Des Moines, Iowa.

What do you think the lesson was supposed to be?

From a flyer discovered by a parent of a student at Roosevelt High School in Des Moines, Iowa

The CAPITALISM side of the flyer shows workers in tattered clothing, chained to a machine that delivers all of the money produced to a cigar-smoking man who is also much better dressed.

Over on the COMMUNISM side, there is no boss and the smiling workers are better dressed, don’t have chains on their legs and the money goes back to them.

This gem was discovered by Simon Conway of Iowa’s Who Radio. A listener who is a parent of a student at the high school, sent the hand out to the radio host.

EDITOR'S Note: If you are a parent, and you find out that your children are the lucky recipients of hand outs such as the one spoken of above, they have been exposed; immediate inoculation is necessary: You should immediately sit your children down and have them watch the following cartoon. Make sure that they are aware of the real differences between capitalism and communism.

Watch it now!

I was able to find this cartoon in my Time 2 Escape blog archive in the following post:

Catching you up on the current state of affairs with Iran:

Iran Vows Support to Anyone Confronting ‘Cancerous’ Israel
From ~ Posted on February 3, 2012 at 12:32pm by Buck Sexton

(AP) — Iran will help any nation or group that confronts the “cancer” Israel, the Islamic Republic’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said Friday.

(Supreme Dictator of Iran!)

He also said in remarks delivered to worshippers at prayers in Tehran and broadcast on state TV that the country would continue its controversial nuclear program, and warned that any military strike by the U.S. would only make Iran stronger.

Khamenei also warned that Tehran would reveal a letter that it says U.S. President Barack Obama sent the Iranian leadership in an attempt to end the nuclear stand-off. He said it shows that the Americans cannot be trusted. The White House has denied that such a letter exists.

Iranian officials have consistently reacted defiantly to indications by the U.S. and Israel that they might at some point take military action against Iranian nuclear facilities.

Iran warns world of coming great event
Says 'evil hegemony' soon will be defeated by power of Allah
From ~ By Reza Kahlili ~ Published Thursday, Feb 2, 2012

Reza Kahlili is a pseudonym for a former CIA operative in Iran’s Revolutionary Guards and the author of the award winning book, A Time to Betray. He is a senior Fellow with EMPact America and teaches at the U.S. Department of Defense’s Joint Counterintelligence Training Academy (JCITA).
Amid crippling sanctions over its nuclear weapons program, Iran is continuing to prepare itself for war against the West, and now is warning of a coming great event.

In light of the realization of the divine promise by almighty God, the Zionists and the Great Satan (America) will soon be defeated,” Ayatollah Khamenei, the Iranian supreme leader, is warning.

Khamenei, speaking to hundreds of youths from more than 70 countries attending a world conference on the Arab Spring just days ago, told a cheering crowd in Tehran that “Allah’s promises will be delivered and Islam will be victorious.

Ron Paul: Ahead of his time
Pat Buchanan agrees that foreign 'freeloaders' should defend themselves for a change
From WND Commentary ~ By Patrick Buchanan ~ Published Feb 2, 2012

Patrick Buchanan
After his fourth-place showing in Florida, Ron Paul, by then in Nevada, told supporters he had been advised by friends that he would do better if only he dumped his foreign policy views, which have been derided as isolationism.

Not going to do it, said Dr. Paul to cheers. And why should he?

Rep Ron Paul (R-TX)
Observing developments in U.S. foreign and defense policy, Paul’s views seem as far out in front of where America is heading as John McCain’s seem to belong to yesterday’s Bush-era bellicosity.

Consider. In December, the last U.S. troops left Iraq. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta now says that all U.S. combat operations in Afghanistan will end in 18 months.

The strategic outposts of empire are being abandoned.

From the Blogs:

On your own terms
From The Daily Motivator ~ By Ralph Marston ~ Published Feb 3, 2012

It’s your life, so be willing to be fully responsible for it. Take charge of your own destiny.

Don’t sit around hoping somebody will give you a break. Get busy and do the work that will enable you to live life fully on your own terms.

Avoid falling into the trap of blaming others for your situation. For when you assign blame to others, you are putting yourself under their control.

Instead, put yourself and your life under your own control. You know what’s best for you, so do what is necessary to make that happen.

  1. For the knowledgable Patek collector, this piece is a time replica watches sale machine: its elongated and slightly curved lugs, its dial layout and its unusually large diameter for the time of 37.6 mm all replica watches uk preceded other famous Patek references by at least a decade. Furthermore, the overall design and size of this one-of-a-kind piece remains timelessly elegant even 70 years after its creation. This piece was first available for sale more replica watches sale than twenty years ago when it was listed for auction. It had been locked away until it came up for rolex replica uk auction at Christie's in 2010. It required great efforts from archivists to further research the past of this piece, as when it was first sold around 1990, there was not much known about it. Ultimately, thanks to the archives of replica watches sale Patek Philippe, it was revealedthat it was a perpetual calendar in a reference 1527 case and as such, among the two complicated iterations of this model number ever made by the manufacture.
