First a supposed admission by Sarah Palin, now this.

Is this really the reason? Assuming it is really the reason, would that be the the reason why they went to Iraq in the first place, or are they only in it now since they don’t trust what the U.S. will do in Iraq?

I have heard of this conspiracy theory years ago. Now it’s on youtube. With all the hearsay conspiracy theories subsequently being documented on the web, I wonder how the U.S. will weather all the news. I tell you, people are just starting to talk now and they are now beginning to blame each other. Respectable Americans are now coming out and even asking to sell U.S. assets.

Not necessarily mental illnesses per se, but personality disorders are psychological conditions that affect people and their relationships.

In the womb, we had no choice.

In this world, it’s like the red pill or the blue pill.

Every Manifestation from God, whether Moses, Buddha, Krishna, Muhammad, Jesus or Baha’u’llah, has offered us a choice like this; the choice of true liberty or to go back to sleep wearing shackles of ignorance and blinded by our ego.

The rest of his post is here.

Personally reflecting upon the tumultuous events of the present era: with financial markets crashing, people losing jobs, livelihoods being destroyed, and political climates heating up: the the common question appearing on many minds is: what caused the crisis? Where is the root?
