Obama & Democrats Want to Control the Internet - Markets Drifting

From Techworldnews:com:

Obama 'Internet kill switch' plan approved by US Senate panel

President could get power to turn off Internet

A US Senate committee has approved a wide-ranging cybersecurity bill that some critics have suggested would give the US president the authority to shut down parts of the Internet during a cyberattack. Just when you think that things could not get any worse, Obama and the Democrats strike again. Big Brother is on a rampage. Think of the ramifications of such an action. Millions of people pay bills and do business by Internet. Think of the damage to the Gross National Product and the total economy. Think of the cost to the Federal Government of enforcing such a bill. Read it HERE.

The Tax Tsunami On The Horizon

Gold and paper are forever at war with each other. Throughout the centuries, they have waged many battles. Each of these battles has produced an outright winner and a decimated loser. This is best illustrated by the Dow/Gold ratio chart, which quite simply, is the price of the Dow Jones Industrial Average (paper), divided by the U.S. dollar price for an ounce of gold. The level this Wednesday, July 14, 2010 stood at 8.54. This article is long, but has good graphs. HERE.

It is early in the day and it will be interesting to see where we go from here. Of course, God remains in control and our task is to see where He is taking us and to rejoice at all times in Him. Praise Him daily.

Remember that it is our duty to join in corporate worship of the Sovereign God each and every Lord's Day. Never neglect this responsibility.

Best to each, Doug
