By: J Robert Giles @JRobertGiles ?Anyone who doesn?t take truth seriously in small matters cannot be trusted in large ones either.?  - Albert Einstein Trust in the media is becoming an ever more foolish investment, yet exposure to their prospectus is nearly impossible. The influence of those loyal to the dangerous ideology of liberalism is inescapable. To hear the depictions of the candidates in the 2012 Presidential Election, both forthright and subliminal, you would think that the incumbency of His Barackness is all but assured. He?s the hero. He?s the one who stepped in and rescued us from the abyss of George W. Bush, remember? He stepped in and heroically choked the life out of bin Laden?s terrorist hiney with his star spangled, bare hands. Remember? He?s the one who single handedly rescued our economy from the disaster left by his predecessor. Mitt Romney, by comparison, is portrayed as a drooling bag of idiocy whose ethics are as questionable as his right to stand in th...

By: J Robert Giles @JRobertGiles ?Democrats are not interested in free enterprise. They only care about free stuff.? - Herman Cain What is private equity? It?s a term that all the left leaning politicians seem to have received in some sort of weekly memo. They?ve been spewing the term all over the airwaves lately despite the fact that most have absolutely no clue whatsoever as to what they are saying. The level of ignorance is simply astonishing when compared to the recent disdain demanded of them by their fearless leader, His Barackness. Obama has smugly attacked Mitt Romney in recent weeks over his ?questionable involvement? in private equity endeavors. It?s the same, tired rhetoric we?ve seen in the past, just dressed in different clothing. It?s the same tired rhetoric that served as a temporary distraction in the early days of the primary season, it?s just coming directly from Obama rather than from the mouths of his minions. Ask any liberal what ?private equity? is and they ...

French election results 'to create opportunities' for property investors
2012-05-10 02:00:00
International investors in the French real estate market may find there are more opportunities to enter the sector following Francois Hollande's victory in the country's presidential elections. Mr Hollande beat incumbent president Nicolas Sarkozy in the polls and has pledged to focus on growth, rather than spending cuts, in a bid to improve France's and the eurozone's economic position. Managing director of estate agency Leggett Immobilier Trevor Leggett said the new direction set to be taken by the French president will lead to opportunities for real estate investors. "We are already seeing the euro/sterling rate hitting the 1.25 mark and with French mortgages already among the cheapest in Europe, it looks like there will be plenty of people looking to both buy and sell," he asserted. However, Danny Silver, managing director of The Villages Group, pointed out that, as the vote was only for the president and not the entire government, there will be very little fund...
Hearing Footsteps?..

By: J Robert Giles @JRobertGiles ?I know well what I am fleeing from but not what I am in search of.?  - Michel de Montaigne When did obeying the rules become an option? When did the scales of our society tip in favor of those willing to question established law and thought in exchange for self-gratification over those willing to work within such a system for the sheer joy of accomplishment? When did we become so afraid to get our hands dirty? It was probably about the time that fear of getting your hands dirty was classified as a disorder and therefore entitling the afflicted individual to a government provided standard of living three times greater than the one in which the patient was living prior to the onset of such a crippling disorder. If you can sense the sarcasm, it?s because I was laying it on pretty thick. Those blinded by the promises of free stuff are always willing to sacrifice future for enjoyment today. Religion is a perfect example. Faith requires years of di...

Race WILL Be A Factor In The 2012 Election

Race WILL Be A Factor In The 2012 ElectionA Commentary by J. D. LongstreetLet's clear the air and stop dancing around the elephant in the room.  Race WILL be a factor in the 2012 election. (Gasp!) OK.  While we are being painfully honest allow me to state the obvious:  Race was a huge factor in the 2008 election. To deny that you have to be irrational or delusional -- or both. In 2008, there was a rush in America to elect the first "black: President of the United States of America.  That is a historical (even hysterical) fact!Well, we did.  We elected Barack Hussein Obama -- and we have paid the price ever since.Let's be clear here.  It is not the color of Obama's skin that has caused such problems for America.  It is the color of his politics and ideology, which is pure "red."Mr. Obama is a socialist -- as is much of the current Democratic Party in control of (at least) a third of the US government today.  Obama is from the far left of the...

Angry Greeks vote in cliffhanger election
2012-05-06 07:50:00
Angry Greek voters headed to the polls on Sunday for an election shrouded in uncertainty that could reignite Europe's debt crisis and renew doubts about the country's future in the euro zone. The first general election since Greece's debt crisis exploded at the end of 2009 will go a long way to dictating whether the country will stick to the terms of EU/IMF bailouts which saved it from bankruptcy but propelled it into a deep recession. At stake is whether the country that drew the decade-old euro zone into the worst crisis since its creation could push it back into turmoil. ...

By: J Robert Giles @JRobertGiles ?Each day of our lives, we make deposits in the memory banks of our children.?   - Charles R. Swindoll   It?s a cliché to say that being a parent changes the way you look at things. Of course it does. For most of us, becoming a parent means an abrupt, loud, and completely exhausting end to the life we had led to that point. It doesn?t matter how old the parents are or how well planned the pregnancy may have been, once that child arrives, the world of the parent is a completely different one. Parents find a joy in seeing the world through the eyes of their children. There?s an indescribable sense of pleasure to be found in watching your child figure out a concept with which you yourself struggled as a child. Some are more momentous like watching them suffer a competitive loss but take away the appropriate lessons. Others are more humorous like watching a 7 year old boy in complete awe of the ?curly fry.? The feeling a parent has at the...
