Gilbert Stuart

Gilbert Stuart

Alexander accompanied Stuart to Scottland in 1772. Stuart studied at theUniversity of Glasgow after his master died, and then returned to America. He later set up a studio in England, then several in America: Boston, ashington,New York, and of course, Germantown.

works include portraits of Benjamin West, William Woolett, John Hall, John
Philip Kemble, Sir Joshua Reynolds, and one of W. Grant of Congalton skating in
St. Jame's Park.

Does Google Know About You?

The giant search engine has been skating on thin ice lately. With anti-trust probes and most people thinking the company knows too much about us already, it seems that Google’s motto of “Do no evil” is a bit hypocritical.

It’s not that Google’s intentions are necessarily evil, but the perception is that they are. After all, when you are the biggest search engine in the world, you pretty much own the internet, and you know more about your users than they even know, it’s pretty easy to see why people are paranoid about what Google knows.


So what does Google know about you?



Well first you have to know why Google wants to get to know you so intimately. It’s all about the almighty dollar and how much money they can get from targeted ads. The more their advertisers see results with ads that are specific for each user, the more money Google can make through selling those ads. So they want to know about your habits and hobbies and they do this by tracking everything you do online.

Google looks at the content of your emails, the Youtube videos you watch, what websites you visit, the IP addresses of these websites and more all to find out what ads they should show you. The problem is that most people have no idea they are tracking this kind of information. And they are unapologetic about it with their CEO saying, “If you don’t want people knowing what you are doing maybe you shouldn’t be doing it.” But imagine how that would look in the real world where the police can barge right into your house without a warrant saying, “If you don’t have anything to hide then you shouldn’t be worried about this.”

Google also knows where you are

If you use Google maps or their app for finding your location with your phone or mobile device, Google uses this information to show local ads that may be more relevant. And if you ask the company about these issues they make it sound like you should be happy with this tracking because you get to see ads you are more likely to be interested in. But do any of us like to see ads at all? Isn’t it the commercials that we are trying to skip (unless it’s the Super Bowl of course). Personally, I don’t want ads to be catered to my surfing habits because I search a broad range of topics, and I don’t care to see ads for hemorrhoids when I was searching for my Uncle for a way to deal with the problem.

You might think it’s cool for a search engine company to know so much about you and be able to show you advertising that you are actually interested in, but remember that this is a private company that knows all of this about you. And we all need to consider how safe this information really is and what happens when someone feels like using this information against us, either to steal our identities or just make life miserable. And with today’s technology it’s easier than ever to have your hard earned reputation washed down the drain because at one time that technology was “cool”.

@#!?^&#W@* GET IT TOGETHER!

WARNING LANGUAGE

Felonius Munk, a YouTube comedian, has put together an EPIC rant against Obama. It’s not about right or left, it’s about paying the bills. WARNING: It’s got some foul language. “Very, very adult language, but very, very funny,” Glenn described. “I don’t know anything about him. I just know this video was sent to me last night. And I think it’s hysterical. Here it is, the edited version of Felonious Monk his message to Barack Obama

Congressman Joe Walsh Puts The Breaks on Chris Matthews



Ouch: Chris Matthews humiliated by GOP Congressman Joe Walsh

In the clip, Matthews tries to criticize the bill for not having a ‘plan’ to cut spending, but Walsh is quick to shoot him down and says that the bill does call for spending cuts, but Walsh emphasized the Balanced Budget Amendment as the most important part. “The key aspect of this plan is the balanced budget amendment. Forcing members to balance their books every year. There may very well be some negotiation, and flexibility on the caps. Look I’m a freshman who came here to change the way this town does business, and we’re going to do that by structurally reforming spending,” Walsh said.

“80% of the American people believed in the balanced budget amendment. Most states have to live according to one. All households do. This is something Americans understand,” Walsh added.
“Here what is obvious. Chris, you’re losing,” Glenn said of the interview. “Nobody is going to watch you.”
And as Chris Matthews tried to shoot down the bill as not being a “plan”, Stu pointed out that progressives and Republicans are obviously threatened by it, otherwise they wouldn’t say they would veto the bill if it passes.

On radio this morning, Glenn played audio from Chris Matthews’s interview with GOP Rep. Joe Walsh. In the interview, Matthews tried to claim that the “Cut, Cap, Balance” bill proposed by Tea Party representatives in the House contained no ‘plan’, but Walsh was quick to shout down Matthews ridiculous argument. And what did Beck and the rest of the radio crew have to say about the interview?

But Glenn was more concerned with the games being played with the bill and the economy in general. He was critical of Boehner and McConnell, saying “All they’re trying to do is pin this economy on the President of United States so they can win more elections.” Glenn said that they needed to get focused on fixing things, though, because elections would soon become irrelevant. “I don’t know how many more elections we have. I don’t care who wins and who loses if the country loses it ain’t going to make a difference. We must do the right thing.”

America’s Credit rating survived Great Depression, but not two years of Obama





Is Glenn being “punked”? Every time the White House administration says something – the opposite happens. Take for instance the downgrade that happened late Friday, Glenn ahs been warning about it for years despite others calling him crazy. “Our credit rating survived the Great Depression. Our credit rating has not survived the first two and a half years of the Obama administration.”
Take for instance Timothy Geithner, who when asked “Is there a risk that the United States could lose its AAA credit rating” Geithner responded, “No risk of that”.
And how is everybody reacting?
An anchor reported on Warren Buffets comments, “I don’t get it. It doesn’t make sense what S&P did. In Omaha, and this is a quote, the U.S. is still AAA rated. Of course, Omaha is where Berkshire Hathaway is based. And then he said if they were a quadruple rating, Liz, I’d give it to the USA.”
The reporter also said that Buffet told her that “the United States to his knowledge owes no money in currency other than the U.S. dollar, which the United States treasury can print.”
“We’ll just print more,” Glenn said.
“Which just means that the money you’d be getting would be worth a lot less,” Stu said.
Now, the radio crew has a habit of archiving some of Glenn’s “crazier” predictions, mainly to mock him later on. But today, Stu played the clips to show how accurate Glenn has been in predicting the current state of the economy.

The parties just keep coming for birthday-boy Barack Obama. After a Chicago fund-raiser the night before he turned 50 and a White House party on the big ay, a third event is now planned for New York.This time it is high-powered movie mogul Harvey Weinstein who will host the
president at his Big Apple home, reports the New York Post.

The event, at Weinstein's West Village apartment is being co-hosted by Vogue editor Anna Wintour.

LET'S FIX CONGRESS!!!!!

I am not sure this is exactly the right formula.  There could be some constitutional and legal issues here that need to be addressed also.  12 years may be too long but the point here is to begin the dialogue.  We need to rethink part of our system.  For the most part, it is the greatest form of government ever devised but our Founders never expected our Representatives to be full time legislators. The issue here is to get people thinking and pushing for some sort of change.  There are term limits on the presidency (22nd Amendment), so there is a precedent for this already.  Read this, think about it, come up with your own suggestions and pass it on.
This is something I believe in and I hope you all read it all the way through. 
The 26th amendment (granting the right to vote for 18 year-olds) took only 3 months & 8 days to be ratified! Why? Simple! The people demanded it. That was in 1971...before computers, before e-mail, before cell phones, etc.

Of the 27 amendments to the Constitution, seven (7) took 1 year or less to become the law of the land...all because of public pressure.

I'm asking each addressee to forward this email to a minimum of twenty people on their address list; in turn ask each of those to do likewise.

In three days, most people in The United States of America will have the message. This is one idea that really should be passed around.

Congressional Reform Act of 2011

1. Term Limits.

12 years only, one of the possible options below.

A. Two Six-year Senate terms
B. Six Two-year House terms C. One Six-year Senate term and three Two-Year House terms

2. No Tenure / No Pension.

A Congressman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they are out of office.

3. Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social Security.

All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into theSocial Security system, and Congress participates with the American people.

4. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans do.

5. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.

6. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people.

7. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people.

8. All contracts with past and present Congressmen are void effective 1/1/12.

The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen. Congressmen made all these contracts for themselves.

Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators
, so ours should serve their term(s), then go home and back to work

The Fix to Government SPENDING!


Constitution of the United States of America


This document has become bastardized! By the judicial system of lawyers.
Return to History!! YES America can get herself out of DEBT!!!.....
America return to the way Congress,Senate and the Presidential office are to sever the people of the USA!!!!



Article. I.



Section. 4.

The Times, Places and Manner of holding Elections for Senators and Representatives, shall be prescribed in each State by the Legislature thereof; but the Congress may at any time by Law make or alter such Regulations, except as to the Places of chusing Senators.
The Congress shall assemble at least once in every Year, and such Meeting shall be on the first Monday in December, unless they shall by Law appoint a different Day.



 Do not let them dictate to us the way our country should be run!   


If we would go back to the Constitution we would solve the debt issue in this country and those that serve would serve the people and go to work like the rest of us due daily! This would give them a greater appreciation for this country...


I am with Glenn Beck when he said that George Washington was a great man our country has yet to see such a man in this century.


Can America speak? We have to make a change our country depends upon it!

shoot-out at the OK Corral

Osama bin Laden Dead
How does this make me feel? 
Poetic justtes has been severed! 
  There may be peace to those who lost those they love! But after ten years were does the United States stand with our allies now?
 What amazes me is that our military can go in guns blazing kill a murder and here on our own soil we keep them in jail why?
Rapists, Murder’s 1st ,2nd ,3rd degree, were is the poetic Justice?
The biblical take on Murder.
"Why is 'You shall not murder' in the Ten Commandments?"
Answer: Simply stated, the sixth of the Ten Commandments forbids the unjustified taking of a human life. However, the commandment itself has a couple of interesting elements that bear mentioning. First and foremost, different Bible translations give the appearance of different meanings, and there is potential for misunderstanding the actual meaning of the verse. Second, man was never created for the act of murdering another, and there needs to be an explanation for such a violent and final act towards another human being. Third, because of the translational challenge, we need to understand the difference between “murder” and “killing.” And last but not least, how does God view murder? To God, murder is not just physical in nature but also the condition of one’s heart towards another.

There are two different Hebrew words (ratsakh, mut) and two Greek words (phoneuo, apokteino) for “murder” and “killing.” One means “to put to death,” and the other means “to murder.” The latter one is the one prohibited by the Ten Commandments, not the former. In fact, ratsakh has a broader definition than the English word “murder.” Ratsakh also covers deaths due to carelessness or neglect but is never used when describing killing during wartime. That is why most modern translations render the sixth commandment “You shall not murder” rather than “You shall not kill.” However, a very large issue can arise depending on which translation one studies. The ever-popular King James Version renders the verse as “Thou shalt not kill,” therefore opening the door to misinterpreting the verse altogether. If the intended meaning of “Thou shalt not kill” was just that—no killing—it would render all of the God-endorsed bloodletting done by the nation of Israel a violation of God’s own commandment (Deuteronomy 20). But God does not break His own commandments, so, clearly, the verse does not call for a complete moratorium on the taking of another human life.

Why does man murder? We know that we were created in God’s image (Genesis 1:27) and we were made to live in harmony with God and with our fellow man. This harmony became impossible once sin entered into the picture (Genesis 3). With sin came the propensity for acting violently against one another. Anger, jealousy, pride and hatred can fuel man’s evil bent towards life-ending aggression. The first recorded act of murder was when Cain killed his brother Abel (Genesis 4:8). From that moment on, taking the life of another has been commonplace and, in some circles of society, acceptable. However, to God every life is important, and since God knew that man was sinful and evil and had become “lawless,” He enacted guidelines that would seek to modify man’s behavior (1 John 3:4). 

So, is there a difference between murder and killing? First, it is important to note that not all killing is wrong. For instance, the apostle Paul talks about the right of the state to take the lives of evildoers (Romans 13:1-7). This relates to what is commonly referred to as capital punishment. Most countries have consequences for murder. In some cases this requires the life of the perpetrator and a suitable means of putting one to death is chosen and administered (Matthew 5:21Exodus 21:14). Another instance of acceptable “killing” is that which is done during times of war and at the command of superiors. There were quite a few instances in Scripture where God endorsed and allowed the taking of other lives (1 Samuel 11; Judges 6–7). And finally, although far from acceptable, manslaughter is yet another form of killing someone. This unintentional act apparently happened so often in biblical times that cities of refuge were designated for the manslayer to seek refuge in (Exodus 21:13; Joshua 20). Again, it was never God’s intent to have to use such a drastic measure as taking one’s life to rectify a situation. So, God does make exceptions for the taking of another’s life as long as it lines up with His will. However, premeditated murder of an individual is never God’s will. 

What is murder in God’s eyes? From the human perspective, murder is the physical act of taking another’s life. However, we also must consider that God defines murder as any thought or feeling of deep-seated hatred or malice against another person. In other words, it is more than just a physical act that constitutes murder to God, who tells us that “everyone who hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him” (1 John 3:15 ESV). When we harbor hatred in our hearts for another, we have committed the sin of murder in God’s eyes. The disdain towards another person never has to be demonstrated outwardly because God looks upon the heart for the truth (1 Samuel 16:7Matthew 15:19). As Christians and as human beings, we know that unjustified killing is wrong. God’s Word is very clear on this point: “You shall not murder.” And what God says we must obey, or we face the consequences on judgment day.
How does this efect you? Or does it even?
Glenn Beck has a unquick twist on this. 
Yes and to our justice system it a disk best servered cold.
