Humility

Quote about humilty

“I may attain “humility for today” only to the extent that I am able to avoid the bog of guilt and rebellion on one hand and, on the other hand, that fair but deceiving land which is strewn with the fool’s-gold coins of pride. This is how I can find and stay on the highroad to humility, which lies between these extremes. Therefore, a constant inventory which can reveal when I am off the road is always in order.”

Why Being Resentful Towards Spirituality is A Waste of Energy?

I see a lot of resentment on the right. But, I am not going to follow into the same trap when people on the secular left (which I am part of) make remarks like this”

Results of the Stress Test

The AP reports

“WASHINGTON (AP) — Government exams of the nation’s biggest banks have helped lift a cloud of uncertainty that has hung over the economy.

The so-called stress tests — a key Obama administration effort to boost confidence in the financial system — showed nine of the 19 biggest banks have enough capital to withstand a deeper recession. Ten must raise a total of $75 billion in new capital to withstand possible future losses.

“The publication of the stress tests simply cleared the air of uncertainty,” said Allen Sinai, chief global economist at Decision Economics. “The results were not scary at all.”

He said it will take a long time for the banks to resume normal lending. But the test results didn’t alter his prediction that economy is headed for a recovery in October or November.

A key indicator of economic health will be released Friday morning, when the government announces how many more jobs were lost in April and how high the unemployment rate rose.

The stress tests have been criticized as a confidence-building exercise whose relatively rosy outcome was inevitable. But the information, which leaked out all week, was enough to cheer investors. They pushed bank stocks higher Wednesday, and rallied again in after-hours trading late Thursday once the results had been released”

Angry Conservative

I met my fair share of angry conservatives on the web. They have rage
and disgust at Obama for doing such things as trying to regulate the economy and pushing the economic stimulus. I found this guy on Topix that was over the top

“Read Glenn Beck’s “An inconvienent book”
pg 200 the UN passes a resolution UN resolution 1267 that tells the Taliban to hand over Osma bin Laden Oct.1999 during the weak, impotent Bill Clinton administration. Gee, I guess they didn’t listen and look what happened less than two years later. Sept 11th 2001. Clinton also had ten chances to kill Osama bin Laden between May 1998 and May 1999, but chose to do NOTHING! Sandy Berger stole those articles from our national archives and shoved them down hs pants and wasn’t prosicuted for doing so.
You liberals are stupid Obama Kool-aid drinkers that’s for sure. You morons have been hoodwinked and bambozled by the liberal media and by the (TIC) teleprompter in Chief who is a lying hoax of a liberal fool.
Tripling our debt in just 60 days is way worse than Bush doubling it in 8 years. What has Obama got to show for it? NOTHING~! Any money in your pockets? NO!
6 billion dollars wasted down the pisser on Chrysler. For what? Your kids and grandkids will be stuck with Obama’s massive debt in the tens of trillions of dollars and they won’t let you forget it, you immoral, Godless socialist liberal bastards.
You liberals think you know it all, but you don’t know SHIT!
You’d like to lock up Americans instead of the radical Muslims, who killed 3,000 innocent Americans and almost sank a US navy destroyer that killed 17 sailors, you sick, sick liberal SOB’s.
They even had to tell Muslim terrorists Abu Zubaydah that the caterpillar they put in his cell wasn’t poisonous. Oh brother. We did that kind of things as kids and as fraternity pranks and the liberals call it torture and want American HEROES to stand trial and go to jail for it? You evil, nasty liberal scum.
Not Obama’s 787 BILLION dollar ‘porklus’ bill with 8,100 EARMARKS in it.
That’s now excuse for Obama spending 3.6 trillion dolar in just 60 ays and wasted billion more on big auto the banks and other bailouts.
At least we got a stimlus check for $60o per person and Obama has given me shit.
By 2019 Obama deficit will be 23.5 TRILLION dollars, way more than our entie GDP, you senile socialist fool.
Like the Swine flu pandemic, you old goat. Like the proof about shots NOT causing autism and flu shots not causing everyone to DIE like you said. You moron.
Bush left us with 5 MILLION course of tamifu ad Relunza, ths helping out the (TOPUS)Telepromter of the United States again. The lousy bum.
Gov Paterson the liberal socialist is making you pay more for your wine and beer, you drunken dirty bastard. You must love that. lol You sad, moronic loser. Pay for those malt liquor drinking porch monkeys and start ‘spreading the wealth’ you cheap socialist prick. Didn’t Hans get VP Joe Biden’s memo not to fly. lol What an asswipe.
Liberals are all dumbasses.
Jack Kemp RIP”

Reminds me of somebody. It is called an angry, resentful Archie Bunker. And the US is still has lots and lots of those folks aroud
