Even when one is not in the position to need to work, it makes for the sleepiest of days..
We see the Dow is down 265pts as of 1p est..
As we often say, add a '1' or '2' before those numbers and then you really got something special
The Pope left Philly this morning and ultimately we're sad to see him go..
He didn't really wish to but he was obligated to go.
While in that cesspool of greed, corruption and uber-Capitalism, Pope Francis delivered a speech to the United Nations where he did not shy away from criticizing capitalism, saying that it contributes to society's ills and for the rich to stop hoarding their money and instead invest in the poor.
The well-to-do collectively smiled, nodded and then ignored..
There really isn't a more distorted group of individuals than the super-wealthy...
As they get up in years, suddenly become philanthropic, and set up charities and endowments to benefit the average person...
Shitty Bill Gates and glad he's dead Steve Jobs come to mind.
But they just follow a long like of ultra rich parasites like John Jacob Astor, John Paul Getty, the Rockefellers, Henry Ford and Andrew Carnegie.. Take the time to read their bios and you see they them for who they really were..
Matthew 19:24 says "Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God."
And then there is this passage from Luke 18: 22-24 about the Rich Young Ruler..
"When Jesus heard this, He said to him, "One thing you still lack; sell all that you possess and distribute it to the poor, and you shall have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me." But when he had heard these things, he became very sad, for he was extremely rich. And Jesus looked at him and said, "How hard it is for those who are wealthy to enter the kingdom of God!…"
Many wealthy pretend to be good Catholics & Protestants yet ignore these words as actively and intentionally as adulterers ignore the Ten Commandments
Wealthy are only generous for egotistical purposes..
You must know their endowments or Foundations are in Their Name.. You must know it is They writing the big check for a cause, or if its a corporation, that they are sponsoring a charity event..
The days of a person of business supporting the fight against Cancer or helping Wounded Vets in silence is well gone..
Disbelievers like to ask us, "How can you prove the existence of God"?
We answer very simply.. 'If there was no God, then Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein currently wouldn't have cancer'
When they point out that the media says its 'highly curable', we respond 'So was Jobs' cancer at first...'
And speaking of Jobs, we think the only despicable person who has had more movies, books and TV bio pics made about him in last 50 years was Hitler..
We at A&G believe.. And know ultimately in time all the baddies will be taken off this beautiful planet while the 'Devil' in whatever form you wish to envision, will be working to replace and replenish
