Show Me Your Hands

A young man went to seek an important position at a large printing company. He passed the initial interview and was going to meet the director for the final interview. The director saw his resume, it was excellent. And asked,'

"Have you received a scholarship for school?" The boy replied, "No".
'It was your father who paid for your studies? '' Yes.' He replied.
'Where does your father work? ' 'My father is a Blacksmith'

The Director asked the young man to show him his hands.
The young man showed a pair of hands soft and perfect.
'Have you ever helped your parents at their job? '
'Never, my parents always wanted me to study and read more books. Besides, he can do the job better than me.

The director said:
'I have got a request: When you go home today, go and wash the hands of your father and then come see me tomorrow morning.'

The young man felt his chance to get the job was high.

When he returned to his house he asked his father if he would allow him to wash his hands.

His father felt strange, happy, but with mixed feelings and showed his hands to his son. The young man washed his hands, little by little. It was the first time that he noticed his father's hands were wrinkled and they had so many scars. Some bruises were so painful that his skin shuddered when he touched them.

This was the first time that the young man recognized what it meant for this pair of hands to work every day to be able to pay for his studies. The bruises on the hands were the price that his father paid for his education, his school activities and his future.

After cleaning his father's hands the young man stood in silence and began to tidy and clean up the workshop. That night, father and son talked for a long time.

The next morning, the young man went to the office of the director.
The Director noticed the tears in the eyes of the young man when He asked him,

'Can you tell me what you did and what you learned yesterday at your house?'
The boy replied: 'I washed my father's hands and when I finished I stayed and cleaned his workshop.'

'Now I know what it is to appreciate and recognize that without my parents, I would not be who I am today. By helping my father I now realize how difficult and hard it is to do something on my own. I have come to appreciate the importance and the value in helping my family.

The director said, "This is what I look for in my people. I want to hire someone who can appreciate the help of others, a person who knows the hardship others go through to accomplish things, and a person who realizes that money is not his only goal in life".

'You are hired'.

A child that has been coddled, protected and given everything he or she wants, develops a mentality of "I have the right" and will always put himself or herself first, ignoring the efforts of parents, family and friends. If we are this type of protective parent are we really showing love or are we helping to destroy our children?

You can give your child their own room in a big house, good food, a computer, tablet, cell phone, and a big screen TV, but when you're washing the floor or painting a wall, children need to experience that too.

After eating, have them wash the dishes with their brothers and sisters, let them fold laundry or cook with you, pull weeds or mow the lawn. You are not doing this because you are poor and can't afford help. You are doing this because you love them and want them to understand certain things about life.

Children need to learn to appreciate the amount of effort it takes to do a job right. They need to experience the difficulties in life that people must overcome to be successful and they must learn about failure to be able to succeed.

Children must also learn how to work and play with others and that they will not always win, but they can always work harder to reach their goals. If they've done their best, then they can take pride in all the effort they put forth.

Life is about giving and serving and these qualities are taught in our homes.

Personal initiative. Personal accountability. Aahh! "The Family Unit"! NOW, you can begin to understand what is wrong with our society...... Please do not mis-understand. There ARE exceptions! There are jewels who rise above their place in life; there are poor souls who fail for other reasons. But when looking at the big picture, the decline of the family and the lessons learned in that family are having a MAJOR impact on our world.

Interesting take on Trump

William J. Bennett, Host of Bill Bennett's Morning in America Show, is one of America's most important, influential, and respected voices on cultural, political, and education issues. He has one of the strongest Christian world views of any writer in modern times.


What I See Happening In a Trump Presidency


By Bill Bennett


They will kill him before they let him be president. It could be a Republican or a Democrat that instigates the shutting up of Trump.

Don’t be surprised if Trump has an accident. Some people are getting very nervous: Barack Obama, Valerie Jarrett, Eric Holder, Hillary Clinton and Jon Corzine, to name just a few.

It's about the unholy dynamics between big government, big business, and big media. They all benefit by the billions of dollars from this partnership, and it's in all of their interests to protect one another. It's one for all and all for one.

It’s a heck of a filthy relationship that makes everyone filthy rich, everyone except the American people. We get ripped off. We’re the patsies. But for once, the powerful socialist cabal and the corrupt crony capitalists are scared. The over-the-top reaction to Trump by politicians of both parties, the media, and the biggest corporations of America has been so swift and insanely angry that it suggests they are all threatened and frightened.

Donald Trump can self-fund. No matter how much they say to the contrary, the media, business, and political elite understand that Trump is no joke. He could actually win and upset their nice cozy apple cart.

It's no coincidence that everyone has gotten together to destroy The Donald. It's because most of the other politicians are part of the a good old boys club. They talk big, but they won’t change a thing. They are all beholden to big-money donors. They are all owned by lobbyists, unions, lawyers, gigantic environmental organizations, and multinational corporations – like Big Pharmacy or Big Oil. Or they are owned lock, stock, and barrel by foreigners like George Soros owns Obama or foreign governments own Hillary and their Clinton Foundation donations.


These run-of-the-mill establishment politicians are all puppets owned by big money. But there's one man who isn't beholden to anyone. There's one man who doesn't need foreigners, or foreign governments, or George Soros, or the United Auto Workers, or the teacher's union, or the Service Employees International Union, or the Bar Association to fund his campaign.

Billionaire tycoon and maverick Donald Trump doesn’t need anyone’s help. That means he doesn’t care what the media says. He doesn’t care what the corporate elites think. That makes him very dangerous to the entrenched interests. That makes Trump a huge threat to those people. Trump can ruin everything for the bribed politicians and their spoiled slave masters.

Don’t you ever wonder why the GOP has never tried to impeach Obama? Don’t you wonder why John Boehner and Mitch McConnell talk a big game, but never actually try to stop Obama? Don’t you wonder why Congress holds the purse strings, yet has never tried to de-fund Obamacare or Obama’s clearly illegal executive action on amnesty for illegal aliens? Bizarre, right? It defies logic, right?

First, I'd guess many key Republicans are being bribed. Secondly, I believe many key Republicans are being blackmailed. Whether they are having affairs, or secretly gay, or stealing taxpayer money, the National Security Agency knows everything.

Ask former House Speaker Dennis Hastert about that. The government even knew he was withdrawing large sums of his own money from his own bank account. The NSA, the SEC, the IRS, and all the other three-letter government agencies are watching every Republican political leader. They surveil everything. Thirdly, many Republicans are petrified of being called racists, so they are scared to ever criticize Obama or call out his crimes, let alone demand his impeachment. Fourth , why rock the boat? After defeat or retirement, if you’re a good old boy, you’ve got a $5 million-per-year lobbying job waiting. The big-money interests have the system gamed. Win or lose, they win.

But Trump doesn’t play by any of these rules. Trump breaks up this nice, cozy relationship between big government, big media, and big business. All the rules are out the window if Trump wins the Presidency. The other politicians will protect Obama and his aides but not Trump. Remember: Trump is the guy who publicly questioned Obama's birth certificate. He questioned Obama's college records and how a mediocre student got into an Ivy League university. Now, he's doing something no Republican has the chutzpah to do. He's questioning our relationship with Mexico; he's questioning why the border is wide open; he's questioning why no wall has been built across the border; he's questioning if allowing millions of illegal aliens into America is in our best interests; he's questioning why so many illegal aliens commit violent crimes, yet are not deported; and he's questioning why our trade deals with Mexico, Russia and China are so bad.

Trump has the audacity to ask out loud why American workers always get the short end of the stick. Good question! I'm certain Trump will question what happened to the almost billion dollars given in a rigged no-bid contract to college friends of Michelle Obama at foreign companies to build the defective Obamacare website. By the way, that tab is now up to $5 billion. Trump will ask if Obamacare's architects can be charged with fraud for selling it by lying. Trump will investigate Obama's widespread IRS conspiracy, not to mention Obama's college records. Trump will prosecute Clinton and Obama for fraud committed to cover up Benghazi before the election. How about the fraud committed by employees of the Labor Department when they made up dramatic job numbers in the last jobs report before the 2012 election?

Obama, the multinational corporations and the media need to stop Trump. They recognize this could get out of control. If left unchecked, telling the raw truth and asking questions everyone else is afraid to ask, Trump could wake a sleeping giant. Trump's election would be a nightmare. Obama has committed many crimes. No one else but Trump would dare to prosecute. He will not hesitate. Once Trump gets in and gets a look at the cooked books and Obama's records, the game is over. The jig is up. The goose is cooked. Holder could wind up in prison. Jarrett could wind up in prison. Obama bundler Corzine could wind up in prison for losing $1.5 billion of customer money. Clinton could wind up in jail for deleting 32,000 emails or for accepting bribes from foreign governments while Secretary of State, or for misplacing $6 billion as the head of the State Department, or for lying about Benghazi. The entire upper level management of the IRS could wind up in prison.

Obamacare will be de-funded and dismantled. Obama himself could wind up ruined, his legacy in tatters. Trump will investigate. Trump will prosecute. Trump will go after everyone involved. That’s why the dogs of hell have been unleashed on Donald Trump.


Yes, it's become open season on Donald Trump. The left and the right are determined to attack his policies, harm his businesses, and, if possible, even keep him out of the coming debates. But they can't silence him. And they sure can't intimidate him. The more they try, the more the public will realize that he's the one telling the truth.

GOOD MORNING LOVELY UFOCASEBOOKERS cheesy

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Five decades later, the Kecksburg UFO is identified (probably)

December 6, 2015 12:00 AM

By Dan Majors / Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Fifty years after the famous Kecksburg UFO streaked across the December sky and landed in a wooded hollow, two Westmoreland County researchers have put forth a theory that they say explains it.

The unidentified flying object that came down Dec. 9, 1965, they say, was a General Electric Mark 2 Re-entry Vehicle that had been launched by the Air Force as a spy satellite, but fell out of orbit.

Authorities at the time, however, said it was a meteorite. That official claim has been challenged but never changed.

Researchers consider the Kecksburg UFO one of the great unsolved mysteries, and people in the tiny town of Kecksburg still talk about it. Witnesses who saw it — before members of the military swooped in and took it away — say it was not a meteor but a craft of some kind.

The years have muddled a few recollections, but accounts at the time agree on several points.

It was 4:47 p.m. when it came out of the sky from the northwest, a flaming object from over Canada, Ohio and into Western Pennsylvania. It appeared to be guided, changing its path and making a level descent away from residential areas and into the woods of Kecksburg.

The first people on the scene said it was partly buried in the ground. It was made of metal, between 10 and 12 feet long, and generally shaped like an acorn. There were strange markings on a band near the bottom that resembled hieroglyphics.

The military was on the remote scene within an hour and by 8 p.m., it was gone, hauled away on the back of an Army flatbed truck.

John Ventre, state director of the Mutual UFO Network, did not begin earnestly looking into the Kecksburg mystery until this year, he said, because so many others already were on the case. But Shafton native Owen Eichler, who had spent decades investigating it, came to him in February with a theory and some evidence that seemed to add up, and the two joined forces.

Their research — put forth in a report with the title “Has a Top 5 UFO Case Been Solved?” — suggests the vehicle was launched from Johnston Island in the Pacific two days earlier as part of America’s top-secret program for spying on the Soviet Union from space.

“Of course, no one ever wanted to admit we were spying on Russia,” Mr. Ventre said, offering an explanation as to why the object was taken away and never explained.

The night it landed

Mr. Eichler was a 13-year-old boy in December 1965, playing baseball in a field, when he saw “the predominately green glowing object with wisps of yellow, purple and orange colors” shoot across the sky.

Hundreds of others saw the object and, thinking that it might be a plane on fire or not knowing what to think, many called authorities.

Greensburg resident Stan Gordon, who would grow up to be a noted UFO researcher, was 16 and listening to a program on KDKA radio when the host began taking calls from witnesses.

John Hays was 10 and playing football when the object landed. Despite the fact that his family lived nearby, he did not see it.

“But when I went in the house, my dad had the radio on and they said something crashed in Acme,” he said. “Then Mom was looking out the window and said, ’It’s not in Acme. It’s right out there. Look at all the cars out across the hill.’ There was activity all over the place.”

The first people on the scene were the curious neighbors. Then came the volunteer firefighters and the police. They were followed by reporters.

“Then there were reports of military personnel coming in,” Mr. Gordon said.

What struck the residents of Kecksburg — and investigators to this day — was how quickly armed military men, more than two dozen of them, arrived at the scene, taking charge and chasing people away.

“The U.S. [government] claimed they were never tracking it, which makes no sense,” Mr. Ventre said. “They had to be tracking it. The Canadian radar was tracking it.”

Mr. Hays saw the military men up close because they set up their command center in his family’s two-story house overlooking the woods. The site offered them a view of the area as well as a working telephone.

“The first thing they did was tell my parents to send us kids to bed,” Mr. Hays said. “Well, naturally I was excited by all the goings-on, and our bathroom was downstairs. I made quite a few trips to the bathroom that night.

“There were a lot of men in uniforms and there were some men in suits, and it was clear that the men in suits were in charge of everything, they were over top of the military, and they had a lot of clout.”

Mr. Hays’ upstairs bedroom offered a good view of the authorities coming and going.

“I couldn’t see down into the hollow where they were at, but I did see six guys in radiation suits take a box down there,” he said. “I didn’t see them bring it back out.”

He said a later inspection of the family’s phone bill showed no evidence of the calls that were made.

Some witnesses said the authorities warned them away from the area because of a risk of radiation from the object. Others were just ordered to leave — at gunpoint — and did so.

Former Post-Gazette reporter Ernie Hoffman, 76, of Hempfield, was working the night shift in Greensburg when he and a photographer were sent to the scene. Mr. Hoffman arrived in time to see military men taking an object away on the back of a flatbed truck. But his account differs from some of the other witness recollections.

“It was not a 10- to 12-foot object,” he recalled. “It was small, the size of two suitcases.”

But Jerry Betters, a Pittsburgh jazz vocalist who died in 2007, told investigators it was larger than that, and the military truck carrying it had a white star on the door. He drew a picture of it and had it notarized.

Whatever it was, it wasn’t in Kecksburg very long. And where it went, nobody who is talking knows for sure.

Most investigators believe it was taken to a hangar at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio, where one witness claims to have seen what appeared to be a small body on a gurney next to it. The witness told Mr. Gordon that there was an arm hanging down. “It had three digits and lizard-like skin,” Mr. Gordon said he was told.

Mr. Ventre is skeptical.

“Personally, I’m rooting for the UFO evidence since I’m with the Mutual UFO Network,” he said. “But I really have to say that we have an extremely good theory that this was a spy satellite.”

Legwork and guesswork

Some people believe the object was a Russian satellite called Cosmos 96, but Mr. Ventre and Mr. Gordon agree the likelihood of that was probably debunked by a 2003 investigation by journalist Leslie Kean for the Sci Fi Channel. Armed with a Freedom of Information challenge and an interview with an expert at the NASA Johnson Space Center in Houston, Ms. Kean determined that Cosmos 96 came down over Canada earlier the same day as the Kecksburg UFO.

But while Ms. Kean might have eliminated one possibility, she couldn’t nail down what it was.

A few have suggested, based on the size and shape of it, that it might have been “the Nazi Bell,” a World War II-era experiment related to gravity and time travel.

“There’s many theories out there, and I keep an open mind to all possibilities,” said Mr. Gordon, who in 2004 produced “Kecksburg: The Untold Story,” a popular DVD including witness accounts of the incident. “I’ve always said this thing was either a very secretive, very advanced man-made space vehicle or it was extraterrestrial. In the 50 years I’ve been doing this, I’ve looked at all sorts of American and Soviet objects and nothing ever seemed to fit the description of what we saw in Kecksburg.”

That was the same stumbling block Mr. Eichler said he kept encountering, until sometime after 1991 when he discovered newly released government documents about the GE Mark 2 re-entry vehicle.

“This vehicle was in the nosecone of the Thor, Atlas and Jupiter rockets in the early 1960s,” he said. “And it was upside down, which means that the cone section was embedded in the vehicle. Everybody was looking for a nosecone with a point, and that’s what threw us for many, many years. I researched so many vehicles of the time period — mostly Russian and American — and we couldn’t find any that matched what was seen in Kecksburg until we learned that the entry vehicle was inverted in the nosecone. That was the ‘Ah-ha!’ moment.”

The size and shape appear similar to the Kecksburg UFO. Other points made by Mr. Eichler and Mr. Ventre include:

1) The GE vehicle had four control jets, which would explain the controlled, turning descent that witnesses described.

2) One of the metals in its construction was copper, which would explain the green flames people saw.

3) Photos of the re-entry vehicle seem to show markings that might have seemed foreign to civilian observers.

“Another significant thing we believe is that this thing had a nuclear or atomic generator in it,” Mr. Ventre said, “and when that hit, they had to get it out of Kecksburg before they had a radiation leak. That’s why they were there so quickly, that’s why there were guys in radiation suits with a lead box going into the woods. They had to get that and make sure it was not leaking before they drove it out to the turnpike.”

But Mr. Ventre acknowledged that this is their best guess. They can’t prove it.

Ahh..Those Elite Indeed!

BY: Adam Kredo Follow @Kredo0
December 6, 2015 4:12 pm

At least 72 employees at the Department of Homeland Security are listed on the U.S. terrorist watch list, according to a Democratic lawmaker.

Rep. Stephen Lynch (D., Mass.) disclosed that a congressional investigation recently found that at least 72 people working at DHS also “were on the terrorist watch list.”

“Back in August, we did an investigation—the inspector general did—of the Department of Homeland Security, and they had 72 individuals that were on the terrorist watch list that were actually working at the Department of Homeland Security,” Lynch told Boston Public Radio.

“The [former DHS] director had to resign because of that,” he said.

DHS continues to fail inspections aimed at determining the efficiency of its internal safety mechanisms, as well as its efforts to protect the nation.

Lynch referred to a recent report that found the Transportation Security Administration, which is overseen by DHS, failed to stop 95 percent of those who attempted to bring restricted items past airport security.

“We had staffers go into eight different airports to test the department of homeland security screening process at major airports. They had a 95 percent failure rate,” Lynch said. “We had folks—this was a testing exercise, so we had folks going in there with guns on their ankles, and other weapons on their persons, and there was a 95 percent failure rate.”

Lynch said he has “very low confidence” in DHS based on its many failures over the years. For this reason, he voted in favor of recent legislation that will tighten the vetting process for any Syrian refugees applying for asylum in the United States.

“I have very low confidence based on empirical data that we’ve got on the Department of Homeland Security. I think we desperately need another set of eyeballs looking at the vetting process,” he said. “That’s vetting that’s being done at major airports where we have a stationary person coming through a facility, and we’re failing 95 percent of the time.”

“I have even lower confidence that they can conduct the vetting process in places like Jordan, or Belize or on the Syrian border, or in Cairo, or Beirut in any better fashion, especially given the huge volume of applicants we’ve had seeking refugee status,” Lynch said.

SYS,

TO WIT:

'At least 72 employees at the Department of Homeland Security"

BETCHA DIDN'T THINK ~ '72' ~ THERE IS ANOTHER ASSOCIATION WITH '72' ~ I'LL LEAVE IT TO UR IMAGINATION...

I made it through the wilderness
Somehow I made it through
Didn't know how lost I was
Until I found you
I was beat
Incomplete
I'd been had, I was sad and blue
But you made me feel
Yeah, you made me feel
Shiny and new
Hoo, Like a virgin
Touched for the very first time
Like a virgin
When your heart beats
Next to mine

Surrey Mirror

UFO seen above Caterham

By Surrey Mirror
Posted: December 06, 2015

IS IT a plane, a trick of the light, or something more unworldly?

Caterham resident Julie Starmer – who is open to the idea there may be extra-terrestrial life out there – was left perplexed by a sighting in the night sky on November 21.

She said: "It was a white sausage-shaped light with red and green lights flashing in a kind of sequence across it.

"It stayed in the same position for 20 minutes, with the light staying at the same level of brightness, so couldn't have been an aeroplane."

Ms Starmer, a seamstress who lives in Alexander Crescent, said: "It was too big and very high up to be a drone.

"I'm not an avid UFO spotter or anything like that. This was the first time I've spotted something weird in the sky.

"Someone else may have seen it in the Caterham area that night, and may have their own theories.

"But it would be small-minded of us to believe we are the only ones in the universe."

Reigate-based amateur astrobiologist Eric Blackmore told the Mirror: "Most sightings can be easily explained as people are not very familiar with the night sky these days.

"Meteors are regularly mistaken for flying saucers and with the amount of junk in near Earth orbit due to our space launches since 1957, this trend is likely to increase."
