Women in America enjoy freedom like no one else in the world, but some pussy-hat-wearing fools claim to be “oppressed” and insist on marching against President Trump while claiming it’s a “right” to kill their unborn children.
In Saudi Arabia, women can’t drive, have no rights and must always be covered. In China and India, infantcide of baby girls happens frequently. In Afghanistan, women don’t have the same education rights as men. In the Democratic Republic of Congo, the rapes are brutal. If the woman doesn’t die on the street, she’ll likely be HIV infected. No one cares. In Mali, women cannot escape the torture of genital mutilation. In Pakistan, there are tribal areas where women are gang raped to pay for men’s crime. In Guatemala, the impoverished female underclass faces domestic violence, rape and the second-highest rate of HIV/AIDS after sub-Saharan Africa. An epidemic of gruesome unsolved murders has left hundreds of women dead; some of their bodies left with hate messages. Those are just a few examples of actual oppression.
No, Woman No Cry!
So, when American women get together in America and whine that they don’t have equal rights while marching in clean clothes, after eating a hearty breakfast, and it’s like a vacation away that they have paid for to get there… THIS woman does not support it.
I Support Our Unalienable Right To Life!
The March for Life, on the other hand is AWESOME!
Today, Friday January 24th, marks the 47th annual March for Life. Thousands of pro-life Americans have descended upon the National Mall for a rally and a march up Constitution Avenue.
President Donald Trump will be the first sitting president to attend this march in person.
Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam has declared a State of Emergency, claiming he’s afraid of the 2nd Amendment proponents who plan to march on the Virginia state capitol on Monday, Jan. 20th—Virginia’s annual “Lobby Day”—to protest the Democrats’ restrictive new gun laws.
From the look of the latest mainstream “media” *cough* (propaganda) reports, the tyrannical Governor is expecting another “Charlottesville” situation, since three “white supremacists” were recently accused of preparing to “target” the protest.
As part of his State of Emergency, Northam has already banned guns around the state’s Capitol.
Many Patriots believe that Virginia’s Democratic-controlled legislature plans to prevent a large turnout for Monday’s protest. They’re also plotting to create conditions that will inevitably lead to gunshots and maybe even death.
Once the “false flag” violence happens, the Democrats will use it to justify stripping away our Constitutional rights. They will try to portray gun owners as terrorists in order to justify state-wide martial law and the confiscation of all firearms.
Democrats are apparently hoping to destabilize America with a regional civil war and widespread chaos in their continuing efforts to oust President Trump from office.
On Thursday, Governor Northam claimed that the “potential for civil unrest” warrants an executive order filled with deliberately deceptive information that lays the groundwork for framing gun owners as terrorists.
The document states that armed militias intend to storm Virginia’s Capitol with “violence, rioting, and insurrection.”
PART OF A MORE INSIDIOUS PLAN
Conservative news outlets such as Newsbusters say that CNN will blame Second Amendment supporters for violence caused by Antifa operatives disguised as Trump supporters.
NewsTarget.com published a report on Dec. 19, 2019, saying that Virginia’s new restrictive anti-gun legislation is part of a bigger plan to “deploy roadblocks at both the county and state levels to confiscate firearms from law-abiding citizens (at gunpoint, of course) as part of a deliberate effort to spark a shooting war with citizens.”
Such violence may be used to justify a United Nations occupation of America and the overthrow of President Trump and the Republic. “Such action will, of course, also result in the attempted nationwide confiscation of all firearms from private citizens, since all gun owners will be labeled ‘domestic terrorists’ if they resist,” warns the report.
THIS IS TREASON
Calling for the DOJ to “arrest Northam and his top Democrat co-conspirators for attempting to carry out acts of treason against the United States of America,” NewsTarget observes that the Department of Justice is likely working with the corrupt “Deep State” to take down Trump and keep the Patriots unarmed while they plot the overthrow of America.
“If the DOJ won’t do its job and arrest Northam for treason, it’s probably only a matter of time before the good people of Virginia decide to put their own house in order by arresting and removing these treasonous criminals from public office. This is why Virginia’s lawless, dangerous Democrats keep changing all the rules to shore up their own power.”
Virginia’s radical new laws are designed to destroy Second Amendment rights through sale transfer and registration bills.
The corrupt Virginia government has also introduced a bill to eliminate voter ID and changed the goalpost on the number of signatures needed to petition the Governor and other delegates’ removal from office.
A recent casting call for “Crisis Actors” in Virginia could be the proverbial “smoking gun”.
According to President Trump on Twitter, “Your 2nd Amendment is under very serious attack in the Great Commonwealth of Virginia. That’s what happens when you vote for Democrats, they will take your guns away. Republicans will win Virginia in 2020. Thank you Dems!”
This treasonous Governor wants to make the Second Amendment seem radical. But it’s OUR RIGHT to keep and bear arms!
God bless Virginia Patriots as they fight for our rights.
WINNING! Covington Catholic High School junior Nick Sandmann defeats fake news by hitting CNN in the wallet! The propaganda-spewing media outlet has agreed to settle his $275 million case against them—for an undisclosed amount.
FAKE NEWS ABUSED THIS BOY
The Sandmann lawsuit against CNN was filed in March and stated: “CNN brought down the full force of its corporate power, influence, and wealth on Nicholas by falsely attacking, vilifying, and bullying him despite the fact that he was a minor child.”
NEXT UP: NBC and the Washington Post. Sandmann’s lawyers have said they will also go after Gannett, which owns The Enquirer.
It’s difficult to let good talent go, but experts agree that counter-offers are not usually the answer to a bombshell resignation. The experience should instead serve as a lesson for employers who value their best producers.
Author’s Note: This blog post is being published today in honor of a great businessman and father, Jack Roseman. Mr. Roseman died in hospice on Monday. He was 88.
The Pittsburgh Business Times called him a “pioneer of Pittsburgh’s tech community as an entrepreneur, investor, advisor, educator and mentor.” But to me, Jack Roseman was a friend; and kind of a father-figure.
I grew up in the Roseman household as his daughter Shari’s BFF. Today, his eldest daughter, Laura, is one of my dearest friends, despite having started out as one of my babysitters.
Our moms were also besties; along with our dads. I’m getting emotional just thinking about the reunion that’s going on in Heaven right now! Days like this make me miss my parents.
Anyway, I wrote this article several years ago for a Human Resource industry magazine. Jack was my go-to CEO!
In honor of his memory, I plan to publish a series of business articles I’ve penned over the years for various magazines, newspapers and websites.
This series will eventually become a book, so stay tuned…
A LETTER OF RESIGNATION
If a valuable employee – one of your best revenue producers – tells you that they’re leaving your company for better compensation, should you try to tempt them to stay with a counter-offer?
A study conducted by England-based Communicate Recruitment Solutions reveals that most employers have never made a counter-offer; and most employees would not accept one.
Jack Roseman, director of the Pittsburgh-based Roseman Institute; which provides coaching, mentoring and negotiating assistance to CEOs of growing enterprises, says that employers must seek out the underlying truth from an employee who says they’re resigning over deficient compensation.
“There are good reasons and there are real reasons; tell me the real reason,” is the proper response for an employer to give to the employee who says they’re leaving over money,” says Roseman.
“People don’t usually leave for more money. In most cases, it’s because they’re unhappy with the company, and it’s the job of the employer to find out why they’re leaving and if they have a legitimate gripe.”
Roseman suggests that an employee who is particularly valued in a company be asked to stay and work things out with the management. “it’s not really how much you make today, it’s what happens over the continuum of time,” he explains, adding that even during those instances when a real injustice occurs, it’s still ill-advised to give an immediate raise or counter-offer.
“Instead, you say, ‘Let’s see if things can get better over time.’ A counter-offer opens the door for blackmail, but maybe you can create an atmosphere they would be happier in? Pay can always be fixed over time if the employee has faith in you and faith in the company,” says Roseman.
“They make employers and their companies look needy and should never be relied upon for long term success,” says Lock, adding that the best way to retain high performers for as long as possible is to ensure that their compensation, recognition and culture are as good as they can be.
“Then, when they do resign, you know you haven’t done anything wrong and it is simply the right time for them to move on; which is often a personal decision as much as a professional one,” says Lock.
Employers should resist the urge to react impulsively to a star employee’s announcement.
“When considering a counter-offer, ask yourself whether you would be offering the employee a pay rise or increase in responsibilities if they hadn’t resigned,” says Lock, adding that there is actually an opportunity in every resignation.
“Bringing someone with new ideas and different qualities on-board is an exciting prospect, particularly when you can dictate the level you want them to work at and a remuneration package you can afford. Good bosses should realize that personnel change is all part of the ebb and flow of running a business.”
“Under no circumstances should an employee be tempted to stay once they have tendered their resignation,” he says, pointing out that doing so will not solve the dilemma of having to fill a vacancy and re-train a new staff member.
“Good business leaders tackle issues head-on and do not delay them until a more ‘convenient’ time.”
“Going to great lengths to retain one employee can send the wrong impression to everyone else. They will question why preferential treatment is being shown to one individual and resent their colleague being cut a special deal, especially when they had one foot out the door.”
Thomas de Freitas
The success of any business relies on the sum of its parts.
De Freitas warns, “Don’t risk the relationship with your staff for the sake of one individual.” Communicate’s study drives this point home, because it showed that most employees who do end up staying for a counter-offer will leave within six months anyway.
“Key employees should be under contract instead of under an at-will policy, because it defines the terms of the employment and the terms under which employment could end. This way, supervisors won’t go around making reckless decisions; they must follow a cause standard in the contract to get out of it. So, if you have a good definition of cause, the employer can protect himself.”
Phelps believes that a high rate of employee turn-over stands in the way of a company’s success. Phelps is one of the oldest independent communication agencies in Southern California.
“Our longevity is due to doing what’s right for the client and having a good, solid team that’s not always turning over,” he says. “When the CEO changes, it’s so frustrating, and it’s the same with lawyers and insurance people.
“Finding good people and keeping them is the key to keeping good clients. Do what’s right for your employees, and it will come back and help you.”
Author’s note: This article was published in a Pittsburgh magazine in 2006. Both of my parents were appalled and disturbed by my open-minded review of this groundbreaking movie. They rarely agreed on much, but they both called my article “absolute rubbish”. #triggered
Is there a scientific explanation for spirituality? Are we connected with other beings and the entire universe at large? And what the #$*! is quantum physics?
“What the Bleep!?: Down the Rabbit Hole” is the extended Director’s Cut of the original documentary movie titled, “What the BLEEP Do We Know!?”, which was released in 2004. Both films portray the journey of a depressed professional photographer (played by Academy Award-winning actress, Marlee Matlin) as she begins to comprehend that if she changes the negative way she thinks, she can actually change her life.
Interspersed with interviews from an eclectic collection of scientists, doctors and mystics, as well as extraordinary animated sequences that take the viewer into the wacky world of our own cells, What the BLEEP… is as confusing as it is inspiring.
QUANTUM PHYSICS CHANGED THE WORLD
Down the Rabbit Hole looks much like its predecessor, but it’s quite a bit longer, because it contains an additional 105 minutes of in-depth interviews, and introduces Dr. Quantum: an animated professor who provides supplementary explanations about the science of the incredibly small.
WAKE UP, AMERICA!
Putting forth the notion that “there’s more to the world than what we perceive,” Quantum physics is touted in the film as “a new way of thinking about yourself and the Universe.” And in Down the Rabbit Hole, the original storyline is condensed so that the experts may have more time to clarify the links between human consciousness, the reality of daily life and quantum mechanics.
The notion of a movie about quantum physics may be enough to send the average person scurrying over into the comedy or action section of the video store, but both films serve to awaken the mind to possibilities by teaching us about our true nature — and how it is indeed possible to affect our realities through our intentions. And if you can sit through more than two and a half hours of mind-blowing information in Down the Rabbit Hole, you may well be inspired by the additional explanations of experts, including internationally recognized pharmacologist Candace Pert, psychiatrist Jeffrey Satinover, M.D and the ancient spirit Ramtha, who is channeled by a woman named JZ Knight.
By tackling subjects such as consciousness, addictions, emotion, and biology, Down the Rabbit Hole illuminates the human experience as a potential for self-realization. And its experts contend that our brains are designed to make thought more real than anything else, but our addiction to continually accessing the same emotions or the same attitudes will take us nowhere.
HOW DO YOU PERCEIVEREALITY?
Most of us are operating at an emotionally detached place, as if today were yesterday, but change means abandoning our old selves. Have you ever thought about who you could be just by changing your perception of the world?
Ramtha makes it clear that we can be the result of our own creation. “See the day as an opportunity in time to create your own reality,” says the spirit. “The day is a fertilization of infinite tomorrows.”
