The real state of the economy

  A few days ago Bonddad basically did a call-out diary to all skeptics on the economy. He called everyone who doubted the strength of the recovery a “Zombie Bear” (i.e. unthinking pessimist).

  He then went on to unload nearly three dozen charts.

 The one thing I could never accuse Bonddad of is an inability to read a chart. He’s got that down. My criticism of Bonddad has always been something else – he never asks “Why?”

 Since Bonddad would count me as a skeptic, and since Bonddad felt it necessary to call me out, I feel obligated to respond in kind.

An Atheist Asks A Favor Of God

An atheist was walking through the woods one day, admiring the beauty of nature all around him.

“What majestic trees!” “What powerful rivers!” What beautiful animals!”, he said to himself.

As he was walking alongside the river, he heard a rustling in the bushes behind him. He turned to look. He saw a 7-foot grizzly bear charging towards him.

He ran as fast as he could up the path. He looked over his shoulder & saw that the bear was closing in on him.  

He ran faster, and then looked over his shoulder again, & the bear was even closer. He tripped & fell on the ground. He rolled over to pick himself up but saw that the bear was right on top of him, reaching for him with his left paw & raising his right paw to strike him.  

At that instant the Atheist  cried out,  “Oh my God!”  

Time stopped…

The bear froze…

The forest was silent…

Glacier Park Photo Essay: Animals

Glacier National Park “The Crown of the Continent” was established in 1910 with the help and influence of George Bird Grinnell.  Many features in the park are named after him.  Located in northwest Montana it adjoins Waterton Lakes National Park in Canada.  The eastern side of the park borders the Blackfeet Nation.  The Blackfeet named the region “Backbone of the World”.  They sold the land to the US govt. in 1896 for mining purposes but they retained the rights to gather plant foods and medicines and to fish & hunt the animals.  Fortunately, no gold or silver were found so the ecosystem remained fairly pristine over time.  It is still considered to be sacred Indian land.
