Fires in Ferguson, Missouri

According to @Calliste 2014, “Yesterday President Barack Obama had the audacity to condemn the violent acts of the protesters in Ferguson, Missouri. Has Obama forgotten how he commands American drones and the U.S. military to fire on innocent and some times guilty people in non-confrontational countries? People in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Yemen and other countries have not attacked America or Americans. Not one bullet. Yet he commands drone attacks against “could be” terrorists and their families, including unarmed woman and children. While the Ferguson protesters have a valid reason to exert force. Not permissible but still more of a valid reason than American troops and technology killing innocent people.

Lets allow ourselves to think for a minute: Possibly the Ferguson protesters feel the need to be violent because America as a whole is a very violent country. Gun toting, same culture killing…police executing…violence breeds/ begets violence. If the leadership at the top condones violence in the international arena that leader or those leaders should expect no less within the country.

I can go on for quite some time on this subject. But join in. I would love to read your comments.”

7 Things You Didn’t Know That Can Hurt Your Credit Score | CanDoFinance.com

#ritarobison #business #finance #credit #money According to Rita Robison 2011, “Before the computer era, consumers would go to their local banker and provide information on their assets and debts to show that they could afford the loan they were seeking.

In the 1970s, credit scores began being used. They’re based on consumers’ credit histories and estimate the probability consumers will pay back their loans.

The most widely used credit score is the FICO score. Created by the Fair Isaac Corp., FICO scores are three numbers ranging from 300 to 850. A score of 720 is considered good. Consumers with lower scores may be charged higher interest rates or denied loans.” Read more > http://www.candofinance.com/loans/things-you-did-not-know-that-can-hurt-your-credit-score/

Every once in a while, we ladies have been known to play a little fast and loose with the truth around you guys. Believe me, we do it with the purest of intentions (really!).

Creating Wealth Through Health | CNN.om Blogs

#wealth #health #finance #consulting According to Dan Ogola 2012, “…My mother, Patricia Ogola, was an uneducated housewife married at the age of 15, and because of the many children she had, she struggled to make ends meet by brewing the local traditional brew. This led to a lot of run-ins with the local policemen who demanded bribes for her to continue making the illicit brew, driving the family into further poverty.

Due to the difficulties in Ugenya for our family, my brothers and I left for Nairobi, Kenya’s capital city, to try and do odd jobs in order to support ourselves and the family back at home.

My mother’s case is a typical case of women in Ugenya. Many were married young and had several children as they were uneducated and did not have access to family planning. Many were also widowed because of HIV/AIDS thus increasing their poverty levels as they were unemployed. Many others also died while giving birth due to inaccessibility of health facilities. Many children also suffered the fate of my brothers.

Women and children in Ugenya need to lead healthy, productive, and prosperous lives.” Read more > http://whatsnext.blogs.cnn.com/2012/03/02/creating-wealth-through-health-2/?hpt=hp_c2

U.S. General Warns Troops To Treat Dead With Dignity And Respect | CNN | (incl. Video)

#usmarines #afghanistan #peeing #desecration #dishonorable According to CNN Wire Staff 2012, “The deputy commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan ordered troops Friday to treat the corpses of slain insurgents and civilians with “appropriate dignity and respect.” The order follows a video that appears to show four U.S. Marines urinating on bodies, images that sparked swift condemnation from the United States and Afghanistan at a particularly crucial period in the U.S.-led war.
“We must treat the living and the dead with dignity and respect,” Gen. Curtis Scaparrotti said in the directive, which was published Friday on the website of the NATO-led force in Afghanistan. He said troops must follow the rules of armed conflict and “act honorably at all times.” Read More > http://www.cnn.com/2012/01/13/us/video-marines-urinating/index.html?hpt=wo_c2
