“I remember being flabbergasted when I worked closely with a credit reporting agency and was told that the credit card companies hate for you to pay your balance off within days. They want to be able to make interest off of you, the real goal is not for you to pay on time; but to pay late and incur interest. Talk about making money out of thin air. She also said that credit card companies will even change the address where payments can be mailed so that people that have never been late on their payment can be tripped up and get the low introductory interest rate they had jacked up to 24% or something like that. Horrible!”

“All easily avoided if you are diligent on paying your bill on time.
My credit card is attached to my bank account so I pay it through an online tranfer. No address change.
Of course banks do not want you to pay. In fact they are betting on it. But, if you get a card that is a bet you have accepted. Most people lose that bet on a regular basis.
“And action comes from FAITH, which is GOD given. There was no guarantee of a job when the boy set out on his journey but he had hope and stepped out in good faith. People will find any reason to credit themselves instead of GOD, yet when the stuff hits the fan; then they want to cry out to the heavenly father.”

“Action is self induced. If you decide to take action, that your own decision. If God induced self, perhaps, and that's a great theological conversation. But don't credit God for a human act when the credit goes to the person taking an action that he himself decided to take. ”
“You couldn't be more wrong about what GOD knows in regards to illegal immigrants. Don't try and trot out that bible verse about "aliens" either because you would be using it out of context. The bible makes it very clear that as Christians, we are to abide by the laws! What part of ILLEGAL do you not understand? When they choose to break the law and immigrate here illegally , they're on their own, GOD is not ok with that.”

“You are referring to the same mis-readed Bible laws which enslaved Black people, killed Native Americans, and have been / is used to control people. Google "The Cross and the Sword".
Jesus Christ (real name Yahoshua) preached about love for our neighbors and others,.
As a cardinal minded person, wake up and smell the coffee. This world is Satan's world. Read John14:30.
Man had been leaving verses from the Bible to justifiy the means.
For example: In the King James Bible, Matthew 17:21 verse is in the Bible, but it is deleted from the NIV Bible. Check it out.
Man has used boundaries to divided the lands not God.
P.S. Stop listening to Preachers and study the Bible for yourself.
Note: You have to walk in the spirit to understand the deeper meaning of God's words.

“Yes there is. This extract is non toxic.The most benefits would come from ingesting it. It is also known to be effective in removing the pesticides from fruits and vegetables. There is a plethora of information out there and unlike many health alternatives this has been studied and proven to be effective.”

“Some of you go to the extreme lol. I didn't say to try to create and live in a completely sterile environment and the studies I mentioned focused on the EXTRACT. Critical thinking is sorely lacking in society and thinking because someone is a Doctor, they have all the answers is dangerous. There is a Doctor shortage, especially for primary care physicians which unfortunately translates to patients "falling in the cracks" for lack of a better description. I see no problem in being proactive and looking after one's health as a preventative measure to avoid a stay at a hospital harboring super bugs.
The medicines used most frequently for leprosy are dapsone (Avlosulfon), Lamprene, or Rifamycin. There has been an alarming increase in resistance to treatment by dapsone.Although we have effective antibiotics to cure the infection (for now),the immune mediated peripheral nerve damage can continue long after effective antimicrobial treatment has started.”

“Actually I'm going into osteopathic medicine lol.”
Muttlib on Sep 19, 2012 at 22:59:54
“Cool deal. I love my osteopath. They are the only type of family doctor I will see. They have so much more training and understand the human body so much better than most. I saw an osteopath that saved my life at 25 years old, and after he retired I made sure my next doctor was also one, and after I moved I immediately sought out an osteopath again. The care is better and the understanding of the body and the CURE for things is so much more thorough. Keep up the good work. I know it isn't easy getting through the programs, but your patients will be grateful that you did!”

“The information I have shared has been the result of specific studies. Nowhere did I state it was a miracle or a cure all. Doctors are a value to society. I am even studying to become one, but the reality is that they're "educated guessers" so it would behoove one to adopt the attitude of gaining knowledge for themselves instead of leaving it all up to someone that is just as human as they are. Forewarned is forearmed.”
Mike Lazar on Sep 16, 2012 at 05:54:53
“Who paid for those studies?”
Muttlib on Sep 16, 2012 at 02:26:31
“Good luck on your studies to be a "Doctor"... I mean Chiropractor. Just remember that 2/3 of your classes are marketing classes. That is where the really important information comes up, like how to get people on a prepaid 12 month plan and how to sell supplements at a massive markup that you just purchase from the same suppliers as GNC. It's quite a career.”

“Grapefruit seed extract has antiseptic,antimicrobial and anti-cancer properties in addition to being known to kill fungus,mold,bacteria, and viruses.
A recent study done by Microbiologists from the University of Georgia found that GSE was a very effective non-toxic disinfectant. Sadly, commonly-used disinfectants have high levels of toxicity and are harmful to humans, animals and the environment. The same study found that GSE demonstrates a "wide spectrum of activity," including antiviral, antimycotic, and antiprotozoan capacities against many bacteria and viruses, including E.Coli. It was also found to be an effective cleanser as a a pre-surgical soap.
Another recent study from The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine found that grapefruit-seed extract was effective in killing over "800 bacterial and viral strains, 100 strains of fungus, and a large number of single and multi-celled parasites." No other naturally-occuring anti-microbial can come close to these results.
People have to stop putting blind faith in fallible doctors and look to remedies that proved effective before the advent of the modern healthcare system.”

“Where do we find a source for grapefruit seeds?
How are they used?”

“Interesting info.. thanks for posting. Most of what you said only seemed to be referring to surface contact and airborne strains.. but I am wondering if there is any health benefit by ingesting the extract.”

“Substances like grapefruit seed resin have mild to moderate anti-microbial properties. But the superbugs we see emerging, such as MRSA, KPS, drug resistent TB, and a new strain of gonorrhea are far beyond the capability of homeopathic antimocrobial agents.
Furthermore, we are now learning that placing a heavy emphasis on disinfecting every imaginable surface actually increases rather than decreases the rate of infection. The microbial world is filled with harmless microbes who actually act as our first line of defense against the nastier bugs. The harmless microbes compete for space and resources with the pathogenic bacteria, keeping the numbers of pathogenic microbes down.
Our 'blind faith' as you call it is why today an average of only half a dozen cases of bubonic plague are reported every year - and those who contract it generally survive ther experience, while that same bacteria once wiped out half of Europe. Thank God for that modern health care system which can now easily treat the three deadliest diseases known to man: the plague, tuberculosis, and leprosy. And oh yeah, completely eradicate small pox, the single deadliest virus known to man.”

“Please be careful, by spreading misinformation about medical issues you both endanger those who might follow your advice and give false hope to those suffering from truly disabling untreatable infections.
Lots of things kill this many microbes, hydrogen cyanide, for example, kills many, many times that more than grapefruit-seed. As does salt in high enough concentrations. That doesn't make either one a medicine.”
“Yeah I'm sure she learned so much from Mtv's sixteen and pregnant. I think whatever sterile, hard to relate to sex education curriculum schools are using needs to have a "reality" slant placed on it. For instance, one of the conditions of someone like the girl in the article getting assistance could include the young person going and talking to a classroom about the harsh reality they now endure for having become a parent irresponsibly.There should also be someone who has contracted HIV that can come and give them a "real world" view on how dangerous unprotected sex can be.”
“To add on to what Virginia Mackey has said, the cell phone could very well be a free one. If she qualified for TANF/Medicaid, she would qualify for a free cell phone from companies like Assurance wireless.”
“When you assume.... well if you have any real sense, you should know the rest. No one in their right mind should expect to be liked by everyone but you show yourself to be narrow minded ,immature and ignorant when you stoop to using derogatory labels and remarks because of your refusal to respect other human beings whose beliefs differ from yours.”
“Ha ha ha...good for you for letting her know in front of them. She probably has to put up with snide comments from them because she is strong enough to embrace what she was born with. What a world we live in!”
