Tuesday November 9th
Nonetheless, many in Washington equate being anti-energy with being pro-environment. There are formidable federal roadblocks in front of nearly everything the nation will need in order to meet its future energy requirements. In effect, our energy policy has morphed into an anti-energy environmental policy, and acts as a hindrance to a more secure energy future.Mover Mike
Yesterday, I posted statistics about the number of babies killed by abortions. I said I was startled by the numbers, 1,375,000 per year, more than 3750 per day, day after day, 24/7! My wife didn't seem to be impressed, so I looked up these statistics from the CDC: number of deaths for leading causes of death
* Heart Disease: 696,947Think of how much money is spent each year to prevent Heart Dusease, Cancer. How much money is spent educating people on Diabetes. AIDS is n't even listed. How much money is spent on AIDS Research. How much money do we spend each year making better cars. How much money do we spend buying safety equipment. Yet, yet, we kill 1,375,000 babies each year, 3750 babies each day, 24 hours a day, 24/7. I recall reading and hearing:
* Cancer: 557,271
* Stroke: 162,672
* Chronic lower respiratory diseases: 124,816
* Accidents (unintentional injuries): 106,742
* Diabetes: 73,249
* Influenza/Pneumonia: 65,681
* Alzheimer's disease: 58,866
* Nephritis, nephrotic syndrome, and nephrosis: 40,974
* Septicemia: 33,865
"The Big Book" page 449:I have attended Landmark's Forum and have heard "There is nothing wrong here." I am reading Loving What Is by Byron Katie who says "The only time we suffer is when we believe a thought that argues with what is....All the stress that we feel is caused by arguing with what is."
"And acceptance is the answer to all my problems today. When I am disturbed, it is because I find some person, place, thing, or situation--some fact of my life--unacceptable to me, and I can find no serenity until I accept that person, place, thing, or situationas being exactly the way it is supposed to be at this moment. Nothing, absolutely nothing happens in God's world by mistake. Until I would accept my alcoholism, I could not stay sober; unless I accept life completely on life's terms, I cannot be happy. I need to concentrate not so much on what needs to be changed in the world as on what needs to be changed in me and in my attitudes."
I am not able to practice yet what I've learned. I am not against a woman's right to choose. I just think there is something wrong here!
