Time 2 Escape WIFLI for Thursday, Feb 2, 2012

Let's begin this post with an excerpt from the latest Daily Motivator, "The richness of today," (Thursday, Feb 2, 2012):

Live this day fully, by applying your effort and focus in meaningful and effective ways. By doing so, you will make the richness of today an enduring part of your life.

Drop your meaningless pretenses and useless worries about the future, and put your energy into living the richness of what is right now. Feel the great opportunity that is in front of you, and make it uniquely yours.

While it is still here, bring today’s richness into your life. And make this day one you can look back upon with satisfaction and immense gratitude.

~ Ralph Marston
I just spent the whole day of February 1 to prepare this post. I felt there was a lot of work to do after my long absence over the last 10 days due to medical needs. There is only one thing that I had to keep in mind: There is no way to retrieve all of the information that I missed, and still know what is going on NOW. "Catching up" is not an option.

Many hours could have been spent in just covering the results of the GOP primary in Florida. Thus, I used my twitter and facebook accounts to bring attention to information that I felt was relevant when producing a full post here would take more time than I had available.

At any rate, I felt compelled over the last 24 hours to do all I could with today's WIFLI, so that I didn't allow "meaningless pretenses and useless worries about the future" to hold me back. They didn't, as you will soon see. I'm just sayin'...

The News Stories:

Farah on Fox TV: Rubio not a natural-born citizen
'We've been through this with Obama now for 4 years'
From WND ~ by Joe Kovacs ~ Published Jan 31, 2012

Sen. Marco Rubio, (R-FL)
Moments after Mitt Romney’s landslide victory in the Florida Republican Primary, WND Editor Joseph Farah declared on national television that Florida U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio would not be a good selection for vice president because he’s not a natural-born citizen of the U.S., and therefore is not legally qualified to hold the office.

Rubio’s not eligible … because he’s not a natural-born citizen,” Farah told Sean Hannity on the Fox News Channel.

Farah’s comment came during discussion about GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum, who finished third in Florida with 13 percent of the vote, behind Romney’s 46 percent and Newt Gingrich’s 32 percent.

Well, I think Santorum’s doing one of two things,” Farah explained. “I think he’s either trying to position himself as, ‘There’s no mud on me and I’m a bonafide conservative,’ and maybe that’s going to propel him to the front of the race. Or that other thing that had crossed my mind when he was really talking about Newt criticizing Romney, the thought occurred to me, ‘Is he trying to position himself for a vice-presidential candidacy there?’

Hannity responded, “I think that’s taken. I think it’s gonna be Rubio. That’s my guess.”

“If it’s not, somebody’s lost their mind,” added Democratic strategist Bob Beckel.

Rubio’s not eligible,” Farah interjected. “You’re going to lose 10 percent of the Republican vote because he’s not a natural-born citizen. We’ve been through this with Obama now for four years. You want to open that can of worms again?"

“I don’t believe that’s going to work,” Hannity said.

Columnists and Their Commentaries:

Don't count God out
Exclusive: Erik Rush figures Obama team has contingency should eligibility issue blow up
From WND Commentary ~ By Erik Rush ~ Published Feb 1, 2012

By the end of this past weekend, it had become apparent to astute voyagers in cyberspace that references to Obama mentor Saul Alinsky were being scrubbed from the Web. At the same time, it was reported that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had floated the air biscuit vis-à-vis her resignation as secretary of state, supposedly due to the rigors of her job. On Jan. 24, a low-profile news story ran concerning joint police and military drills scheduled to be held in downtown Los Angeles. These would be designed to “ensure the military’s ability to operate in urban environments, prepare forces for upcoming overseas deployments, and meet mandatory training certification requirements,” according to the LAPD.

I’m not going to question precisely who does the scrubbing when people reference scrubbing of the Web, belabor the slim chance that Hillary (of all people) would ever resign due to stress, or rail over why the establishment press sat still for a “not to worry” answer from government over military drills in a major civilian area. Most of the readers of this space could come up with viable assessments of these things before I could finish typing this sentence. My aim here – aside from citing the curious nature of all these occurring in such close temporal proximity – is something altogether different.

The "Why I Hate Religion" Controversy Explored

By John Kubicek ~ Wednesday, February 1, 2012

In a way, I'm not a big fan of the word, "religion." The word can mean so many different things to people. In fact, it's right up there with "politics." Both words lead to great debates just because the words both bring about different opinions, which lead to debate, which leads to arguments and the inability for all of us to just get along.
