Come Away With Me

I've set up a new website. I needed a new space to be able to express myself fearlessly.  I call it Just Sayin'.

There are only 2 pages: "home" and "blog". Check out my latest blog: 
"The Beginning of Something Unprecedented - Part 2"

                          So come away with me ...

Let's pick up where we left off!

The True Story of Thanksgiving

The following is the "Real Story of Thanksgiving" by Rush Limbaugh. The truth of Thanksgiving is that this is the day Americans celebrate giving thanks to our Lord God for the tremendous blessings He continues to pour down on us. We thank Him for His loving kindness, His grace, His mercy toward us, for without which we are nothing.

Life Is Celebrating Heroes

                          Thank you, Veterans!

Our family has had its share of military duty. My Dad was a lieutenant in the Navy. Several uncles served, as well. My brother was a sergeant in the Air Force. One nephew is an ex-Marine, one niece is ex-Army. Three nephews currently serve in the National Guard while one niece is serving in the Air Force.

The Beginning of Something Unprecedented - Part 1

Toward the end of the Shemitah year (August/September), the fundamental flaws in our economy began to rear their ugly heads. In August, the market dropped about 14% off its 2015 peak. August 24 recorded the largest intraday drop in history (1,100 points).

Recently, however, the market's downward trend has experienced an unprecedented 6 straight days of positive trading.

What precipitated this uptick? Was it the news that the 3rd quarter was the worst quarter in 2015? Is it the non-stop horrible earnings reports or the worse than ever manufacturing numbers?

End of Shemitah

I’ve been hearing from everyone that I’m crazy and totally wrong because nothing happened on Monday, September 14, 2015 (Rosh Hashanah).

Well, I’m not flinching. Not by a long shot. Plenty happened this weekend. Yes, you’re right. The U.S. market didn’t crash, but plenty of other markets had a rough go, and it aint over yet.

On Friday, the 14th anniversary of 9/11/01, our government all but signed, sealed and delivered a promise to not only give a nuclear bomb to Iran, but offered to pay for it. In doing so, they put Israel, the American people, the world, in jeopardy.

Life Is A Wonderful Life

Remember our mission statement:**Throughout the entirety of our journey, our goal is torecapture debt.To accomplish this task we must begin with aparadigm shiftin our thinking. Instead of giving our hard-earned money to banks and financial institutions who use our money to gain wealth for themselves, we will bring our hard-earned into our own storehouse (becoming our own bankers) so that we can create our own wealth! This storehouse is a dividend-paying (participating) whole life (permanent) insurance policy set up properly (customized) by an  Infinite Banking Concept-oriented  broker through a reputable mutual life insurance company.

Life Is Shining Bright In The Midst of Dense Darkness

“Arise, shine; for your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; but the Lord will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you. The Gentiles shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising” (Isaiah 60:1-3).

No, I’m not getting religious on you (photo by Pixabay). I’m showing you a truth. Great light always arises during times of great darkness. You have nothing to fear when you’re on the right side of things so keep your peace (if you’re on the right side of things).

Life Is America!

             God Bless America!

There's a scene in theSound of Musicwhen Captain Von Trapp sings the Austrian national anthem,Edelweiss, to his fellow countrymen. He weeps because the country he loves is about to drastically change.

After coming to power, Austria-born Adolf Hitler demanded Germany and Austria be united. Italian leader Benito Mussolini blocked this proposal until the two men developed closer ties. In 1938, Mussolini stepped aside as Hitler seized control of Austria until 1945 when Austria regained her independence.

Life Is Not Where You've Been, But We're You're Willing To Go

Jesus told this parable: A certain man had two sons. The younger said, “Father, give me my portion of goods.” So the father divided his inheritance between them.

Not many days after, the younger son gathered his belongings and took a journey into a far country where he wasted his inheritance on riotous living. After spending everything, there arose a mighty famine in that land. Desperate, he got a job feeding swine. (Photo by Pixabay.)

He would have gladly eaten the swine’s food, but it did not satisfy his hunger, and no one would give him food to eat.

Life Is Swimming Against The Tsunami

If you want to follow along here, you have to go back several posts. The Infinite Banking Concept (IBC) or Becoming Your Own Banker is simple in so many ways, yet, there is so much involved in this strategy. That’s why I love it.

Not my broker, accountant, or any other financial wizard I know has given the IBC strategy a thumbs up. 

When you know everything, there isn’t much you can learn.

As a result, less than 3% of the population invest in a dividend-paying (participating) whole life (permanent) insurance policy set up properly (customized) by an Infinite Banking Concept-oriented broker through a reputable mutual life insurance company.
