Real Life

 

In Real Life
 
I wish in real life it was possible to get along with everyone, to be nice with everyone, but in real  life that is not true, not possible now-  for 30 percent of the persons I encounter do need to be arrested and be  put in jail for their crimes, for their wrong doings, abuses.. That includes the liars, thieves, control  freaks, bullies now too.. and it does not matter whether the person is a clergy, a university graduate,  professional, a lawyer, civil or public servant or whatever now too.
 
One of the worst things you can do is to think that such a person, spouse, relative, family member, pastor, politician is a nice guy, OR ANY INSTITUTION, CHURCH NOW AS WELL  and so it  is worth being worshipped, praised.. well cause very shortly God will show you really what even the person now is really like, a sinner like all the rest of us.. and the political party, organization, church you worshipped..  If you also do try to maintain you are a good person now as well, God will not let that false pride stand before him as well and he will show to you and many others what you really are still are like.. For God is a jealous God and will have no false  idols NOW before him.. God says without me you can do nothing, nothing good that will last permanently, that the canker worms will next not destroy as well.. I have seen so many good guys in my life, some have been my close good friends, but real life next showed to us all what they really were like next too.. sinners. 
 
The CANADIAN conservative federal government itself rarely it seems takes the proper lead, leadership now too. Prime Minister Stephen  Harper has never formed a majority government yet Canada’s prime Minister himself Stephen  Harper,  Harper has been drooling for his majority now for many  years, the leader claims to have a majority government and he now disregards the majority of the Members of Parliament, and the citizens of Canada’s wishes, desires too,  he is still  running his minority Parliament as if he were the leader of a majority, tends to bury religious beliefs to win a hopeful real majority government not surprisingly thus  failed again in an attempt to  win a majority government.  As we are well aware, mo one is are not going to form a majority federal government with the majority support of the citizens of both Quebec and Ontario also now. You next cannot hope to have a majority government as Harper keeps on finding by failing to look after the good welfare of all the citizens of Canada. Beating on minorities really doesn’t make a majority government more   possible. 
 
Bad pastors, bad elders, bad cops, bad politicians  continue to exist  cause likely their supporters are  bad too.  (Jer 5:31 KJV)  The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?
  
Bad people try to do many bad  things.. if others let them do it as well.. Our governments and our leaders seem still too ready to allow all of our taxpayer’s monies to be abused and that is unacceptable always. Someone has to be concerned about it, and one of the best ways to deal with the abuses is to expose it and to prosecuted fully all the guilty participants.
 
Most people still rightfully do blame the governments, politicians, bad cops and bad judges, for the existence of much too many crooked civil and public servants, crooked business persons, crooked persons in Canada.  More Laws that are unenforced also tend to be still mostly useless too.
 
 
 
The sad unacceptable fact is that this type of taxpayer’s money abuse, practice is not an isolated case, but rather repeats itself often,  Canada wide at the federal, provincial, municipal levels undeniably too.. Money allotted is not used where it was originally supposed to be but often is transferred to some other department, account.. and how is it the auditor generals did  not pick it up for 10 years too? or refuse too?  
 
It seems Newfoundland politicians are pleading guilty to fast and loose spending, Ontario’s e-health looked outrageous, Ottawa’s mayor did a backroom deal… The    Criminals – the whole lot of them.  These type of stories always make me wonder – how many other dubious contracts are signed wasting our tax dollars?   Fire them all  and then send them to jail. Crooked persons, civil and public servants   are crooked   not matter which province they come from. Sadly the cities, provinces that supposedly drive the economy they also do steal a lot of the money too..   Premier’s Letter To The Ontario Public Service  No such thing as a little bit pregnant, what other wrongs, thefts  are the civil and public servants doing and falsely covering up now? And now still all this being done while most Canadians now do live from paycheque to paycheque.  Majority of Canadian employees living paycheque to paycheque, survey shows Is this how the rest of the federal economic stimulation   money will be now abused as well? Right under the federal Conservative Minister’s noses now as well? And why is it that their only solution to any problem in Canada seems to involve a tax increase? Because sadly even that the the new Conservatives undeniably too really are not better managers over the past Liberals.. The Conservative federal government is an unacceptably very poor manager of the taxpayer’s money now as well. The Federal Transfer payments make up a very large part of federal expenditures. The federal government is a  tax collector,  money expediter and an useless money administrator too, while the federal government’s own regular operating expenses for fiscal 2009-2010 will be only about a quarter of its total spending all the taxpayer’s money expenditures still needs to be supervised, yes held accountable for now as well. Where is PM Stephen Harper’s promised restraint, accountability now as well? The new Conservative Ministers merely  like to do all the talking but seem to bring no real, viable acts, actions  on the issues still too. Unacceptable.  
  
The Federal public servants at Transport Canada are routinely filing millions of dollars in expenses – including overtime, salaries and computers – toward a construction project that doesn’t exist. The Mackenzie Valley pipeline remains a mega-project that is perpetually on the horizon –The project seemed closer at hand when a fund was set up at Transport Canada six years ago so that the department could oversee the expected increase in air traffic and other transportation needs. Though the pipeline remains in limbo, the department has kept the fund alive year after year, using it to cover millions in expenses that have nothing to do with the pipeline. Documents released through access-to-information requests list the expenses, which total $10.7-million since 2004. Expenses continued to be billed to the pipeline project this year. ” So, when you consider that Chuck Guite (Sr. Public servant) and Paul Coffin (ad exec) started running their fake ad invoice scam during the Mulroney administration, it appears that the Liberals inherited AdScam from the Conservatives, does it not?  ”  “This is why our taxes are so high. Take this and the Gold that vanished at the Mint and the tab is through the roof. Anyone want to bet the Mint millions gets swept under the carpet?” ”   Too much time spent electioneering and not enough time spent runnin’ things. ” http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/politics/transport-canada-fictitiously-expensing-millions/article1286306/ 
  
Also the “Majority of persons do not trust Journalists,  Labour union leaders ,  Provincial government officials,   Building contractors ,  Lawyers ,  Bankers ,  Real estate agents,   MPP’s/MLA’s ,  Car salespeople ,  Business executives , Stockbrokers     

THERE ARE NO SURPRISES HERE FOR WE SEEM TO ALSO THINK MOST OF THESE PEOPLE CAN BE EASILY BOUGHT OR WILL SELL THEMSELVES FOR MONEY

And with all the latest Recession, Ponzi scandals it is not surprising to many persons that the Business executives and  Stockbrokers are not trustworthy .

Now we should note how many Canadians hate the big three, Bell Corporations , Rogers, Telus for a start as well.

And most PEOPLE STILL DO THINK THAT ALL CEOs ARE SIGNIFICANTLY OVERPAID.. and even the University administrators… “

Any Abuse of any taxpayers finds should be a criminal offence fully prosecutable by law, and should mean the immediate dismissal of all involved too, after all it is stealing the taxpayer’s money. Police, judges, supervisors  don’t tend to enforce it cause they do the same thing? All Unacceptable  still. The government “moving ahead, with more taxes” is not  the most important thing that the province can do to strengthen the economy and create jobs but rather to seriously plug up the leaking  holes in the taxpayer’s pail of money first.
  
We need better Policing and “Tougher penalties for sure!” You will get a longer jail sentence for robbing a convenience store of $50 than fleecing investors for millions (billions) or stealing any of the tax payer’s money.   “Also, put an end to double credit for pre-sentence incarceration!!” Put all of the criminals in jail, and their bad supervisors now too,  where they belong, and always do  take way from them all that they have stolen now as well.. and do start with the bad  civil and public servants now as well.
 
Ontario has announced new measures aimed at putting an end to recent controversies over government expense claims “The move is one of “four additional steps to protect taxpayer dollars and improve accountability,” Starting immediately, Ontario Public Service employees will be issued new, simplified guidelines for travel, meals and hospitality expenses. The province said it is also planning to increase the number of random audits it carries out on the province’s agencies, boards and commissions.   http://www.cbc.ca/canada/ottawa/story/2009/09/14/ont-expenses.html  and  about time now too!
 
Quebec says it is intensifying police efforts to tackle corruption and financial fraud in the province amid a growing public furor over white-collar crime. The Charest government says a squad of about 20 provincial police investigators will be assigned to probe potential corruption – including the infiltration of organized crime – in the construction industry and municipal affairs. It will also bolster its police presence to track fraud with Quebec’s securities regulator, the Autorité des marchés financiers.  Meanwhile, with Montrealers going to the polls this fall, city hall is under a cloud for allegations of fraud, kickbacks and the inappropriate awarding of contracts. Multiple police investigations have been launched. Last week, a senior civil servant and a computer consultant were charged with defrauding the city of millions in a bogus billing scheme in the city’s computer division. While Quebec rejigs its police manpower, some have called for a public commission into the province’s construction industry and possible ties to organized crime.    http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/quebec-cracks-down-or-corruption-white-collar-crime/article1286432/
 
Until people start getting fired and criminal charges are laid, these type of under the table deals will continue.  And we wonder why services continue to go down as taxes continue to go up. I say amend the criminal code to include a mandatory 5 year minimum jail sentence and a fine not less than 10 times the money involved, for breach of public trust. This amendment would cover all forms of corruption from conflict of interest to false accounting. By the time the first dozen or so of these crooks have been banged up – the rest won’t find public office so attractive once they know they can’t fleece the taxpayer.
  
Feds promise mandatory jail time for major fraud. Judges could consider restitution for victims as part of white-collar crime bill I’ve always found it funny that someone could steal a $2000 car and be sentenced to 20 years in jail. But steal 30 Million and you only do 18 months…. at Club Med. Excellent. There’s plenty of crime on Parliament Hill. Start your crackdown there. Rob a thousand people of $100,000 each, that’s a crime. Rob a million people of $100 each by credit card interest rates that’s OK, that’s business. We should have election threats every months, it seems it’s the only way anything happens on the hill. Threaten an election and suddenly the legislative agenda is crammed with draft laws that should have been there months ago.  Harper – just another Calgarian running another Ponzi scheme… promising big returns but producing nothing of value.  http://www.cbc.ca/money/story/2009/09/15/white-collar-crime015.html , http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/09/14/transport-canada-stealing-taxpayers-money/
  
Also all of the  governments should now step in given the justified rising anti-competitive, anti monopoly sentiment nation wide, curbing their monopoly sectors from grabbing, gouging  exorbitant profits from the customers,  and preventing these monopoly sectors from taking advantage of their market position to overcharge consumers.  Encouraging real, valid competition, for example, is the ultimate way of breaking up monopolies. But the government some times instead  sticks to price controls or no controls to tackle the monopoly problem. The governments can deal  with monopolized interests only if it gathers adequate political will.  
 
The marketing departments even of big three telecommunication firms providing internet and telephone services in Canada too : Bell , Rogers, Telus as well are still now clearly telling the  lies, spinning the truth, making typically past unkept promises  of the customer’s full satisfactions too, and  even now advertising at great costs, high costs that will be passed on the customers even,  all now done to try to win back many past lost unhappy customers, and to hopefully gain new customers, Being done basically because they are basically all UNWILLING TO FACE still OR to deal with THE ACTUAL REASONS MANY CUSTOMERS HAVE BECOME DISSATISFIED.
 
Every  company is guilty it seems to some extent of these sad, bad practices. No companies provide a FULL  service or an adequate  product it seems these days…. all they provide is profits for themselves hopefully. And as long as we allow them to do so, by letting companies and industries run roughshod over the governance of the country, then this will continue. Good Products and good services falsely are a distant second in offerings in relation to corporate profits.
 
The Canadian cell phone and internet speeds, rates among world’s worst, Canadians are being hosed for their access still too. A few years ago, Canada was ahead in the internet field. Then Bell and the CRTC sat back and let the world pass us by, while the Conservatives lacked the will, vision to notice, admit  this was even a problem.  Harper’s Conservatives, DO NOTHING! http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/07/07/crtc-farcical-hearings-on-internet-speed-control/ 
 
Please do see also, and do pass it on…
Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty is the best overall approach for all still do..
 
Former Quebec lieutenant-governor Lise Thibault will face six criminal charges in connection with her expense accounts. Not surprised at all… they should audit every single expense claim by people in such positions. Most civil and public servants do it but some do it on a larger scale. TYPICAL!! Politicians all think they have a right to the taxpayers money!!! Criminals is what they are.!!! Throw the book at this BI@#$!!! and put her in jail. The law should provide for double criminal penalties for anyone in elected office and quadruple criminal penalties for anyone in appointed office. To that, of course, seizure of assets to compensate not only the malfeasance, but offset the cost of prosecution and incarceration.   http://www.cbc.ca/canada/montreal/story/2009/09/25/thibault-charges.html
 
What 40 percent of persons do not trust cops? My opinion of cops went much lower when I myself had actually tried to use their services in reality. Many people also undeniably now  blame the cops for the existence of the much too many crooked white collared crimes, business persons, and bad stockbrokers, bad civil and public servants  in reality.  50 percent of persons do not trust the clergy? OR  Funeral directors or accountants 
 
PM Stephen Harper is being predicted as looking for an excuse to call a new federal election, to stay longer in power, by getting a majority next.
 
He Harper has already found unsuccessful election platforms such as Transparency, Accountability, Honesty, Integrity  which he did not deliver upon, or Abolishing or revising the Senate… cutting back on federal Powers..
 
And so why does he want another term in office when he said originally elect us and we will show you what we can do?
 
For  we all next saw Harper rather  become another dirty, corrupted, immoral, polluted politician who lied, broke his promises, hired his friends into offices as well and he really was no different!
 
So why do you want a majority now, to even make things worse? or falsely try to kick Quebec out of Canada?
 
    
Mr. Harper now  what about rightfully getting elected by doing good work looking after all the Canadian good welfare and not trying to steal the votes by being another dirty politician? 
  
Look when the Conservative first got elected I specially wrote that no party will next get a majority until they actually stop playing dirty politics and really started to look after the good welfare of all Canadians Canada wide and so to date we have not seen this, so we are continually in a minority government.   
 
But we continue to be no often asked the Questions It’s time to pull the plug on the federal government? “It is not  time to pull the plug?”   It is the burning Federal election question of the day spinned by all the political spin doctors of all parties  when they  have backup support for a win from their paid lying  pollsters: Both sides then do want an election when they do think they can win.  But do Canadians need an election?  and can any Party  realy now next win a majority? No.
  
The first main question is rather Can any party demonstrate that it cares and is now working really for the god welfare of all Canadians and not just themselves mainly?  We all now the answers, NO, for they are all ttend to be selfish, self centered only.
 
So the  Politicians have been now often told that Canadians don’t want and don’t need another election, Canadians and  are fed up with the constant shenanigans of all of the unproductive and divisive parties, all of them. Conservatives especially.
 
A majority government next will undeniably to not make any difference, for undeniably too they the main party will just steal more for themselves and their supporters next as well all seem to know now too.  Actions speak louder than their mere words here too.
 
Three minority governments have confirmed that the Canadian democracy  works. Stop stealing , wasting taxpayers money and go back to work looking after all Canadians in reality and not mainly the selected few. How more simple can it be said now? 
 
Canadians  have already often exercised their democratic rights over the political process and their parliamentary institutions, and have next elected a minority government cause no party is ample presently to serve the citizens effectively in reality.
 
The  Republican-lite  Harper Conservative party  while it says it pines for a much reduced role of the state, yet hypocritically has been spending more money over the past Liberal government.
 
Also the critics would say that supposedly the Harper government is in the process of reconstructing by stealth the nature and scope of the Canadian federal system by decentralizing programs and undermining Ottawa’s future power to tax and spend. Reality the next government will no be able to spend because of the huge undeniable deficit presently being caused .
 
But  there is the continuing duplicity of our Conservative politicians and their spin doctors who once had claimed they will   operate on sound, moral principles but then quickly  violate them  often, even at the mere smell of a partisan political advantage. Prime Minister Stephen Harper had loudly denounces a hypothetical Liberal/NDP coalition, one backed by the dreaded separatists, and pleaded for a majority to head it off. But when he sees the Liberals may next win win  he next pleads with the NDP and the Bloc to support his government or else the economy and the unemployed will suffer. And he accepts their support. aid.. Who would rightfully even want to give this hypocrite a majority even too?
 
Yes all the Parties are still looking mainly, firstly, selfishly after themselves and not all Canadians and this will allays be unacceptable. That is why an election is not wanted  now by most Canadians.
 
My 87 years old father  says that you all in the governments are mere parasites. Wizen up Ottawa and start looking after all Canadians, for we do not trust any  of you presently to do so, to look after us all  too. We are all not that stupid we can see what is really now happening too.

Stephen Harper’s Conservative minority government proposed to redistribute the federal elections ridings last year as well. But the bill was never passed into law, partly due to complaints from Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty who had felt the province wouldn’t receive enough additional parliamentary seats under the proposed changes.  And Quebec and the Bloc Quebecois is expected to oppose redrawing the electoral map. The Bloc has come to hold about two-thirds of Quebec’s 75 ridings in recent elections.  Adding seats elsewhere would erode the Bloc’s political clout. The Conservative Stephen Harper federal government is reportedly still working on legislation to create as many as 32 new electoral ridings across suburban areas of B.C., Alberta and Ontario so hopefully next time they can get a majority government. Changing the electoral map in such a way will play in the Conservatives’ favour because the party thinks it stands a good chance of picking up additional seats in suburban Alberta and B.C., and potentially Ontario as well. ” For Harper  this is the route not only to getting rid of minority governments, and a a route to a Tory majority, creating  a dynasty. The proposed changes  could be presented to Parliament as early as this fall or early 2010, and would increase the number of MPs in the House of Commons to 340 from 308. The new ridings would in all probability go to suburban areas around the major cities of Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary and Toronto, communities. As a result Quebec and BQ would lose some ridings. Which will not go over in Quebec, and will be forcibly opposed, causing another federal election likely.. which is what Harper wants anyway?

 

ACTUALLY IF YOU NEXT DO SPEND ONE DAY WORKING DIRECTLY WITH A CLERGY  YOUR OPINION MIGHT SIGNIFICANTLY WORSEN, FOR  I KNOW MINE ALWAYS HAS.

 – Majority of persons do not trust : Journalists,  Labour union leaders ,  Provincial government officials,   Building contractors ,  Lawyers ,  Bankers ,  Real estate agents,   MPP’s/MLA’s ,  Car salespeople ,  Business executives , Stockbrokers.  Politicians known to be as bad as the used car  salesmen

THERE ARE NO SURPRISES HERE FOR WE SEEM TO ALSO THINK MOST OF THESE PEOPLE CAN BE EASILY BOUGHT OR WILL SELL THEMSELVES FOR MONEY.

And with all the latest recession, Ponzi scandals it is not surprising that the Business executives and  Stockbrokers are not trustworthy .

And most PEOPLE STILL DO THINK THAT ALL CEOs ARE SIGNIFICANTLY OVERPAID.. and even the University administrators

The essential needed way to save our taxpayer’s money is still to look at how all of these public services are delivered – and no one  can  tell me that there are no cost-cutting savings to be achieved. Compare  say a city like Montreal or Toronto where exorbitant rates too now are also paid  for useless civil and public servants with their rather unskilled services – sadly this same phenomena can be seen in many federal ministries.  Calgary isn’t exactly squeaky clean as well nor Toronto nor Montreal..   Let’s just agree the whole system is bloody corrupt, eh? For a start all Ministers supervising better all of their expenditures, and bringing all of the subordinates  salaries and wages in line with the private sector would enable us firstly  to continue delivering public services at the same level, or more! It is the still the too often abusive civil and public servants spending that now also determines the still abusive personal taxes.

If there really is a God, people wonder, why..

flwrs10  (2)
 
If there really is a God, people wonder, why there is Sin now on earth and why also God he has He allowed so much suffering in the world?

Many Christians honestly struggle with that same question. Only by turning to the Bible can we begin to understand the problem of suffering in this life. There originally was no sin in this world, none at all, Man, Adam and Eve sinned and the negative consequences of sin next now became an undeniable  permanent part of this earth, world.. God now had allowed man to use his free will, for man is not a puppet or a slave of God..

(Rom 3:23 KJV)  For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

(Rom 5:12 KJV)  Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:

(Deu 4:39 KJV)  Know therefore this day, and consider it in thine heart, that the LORD he is God in heaven above, and upon the earth beneath: there is none else.

(1 Sam 2:2 KJV)  There is none holy as the LORD: for there is none beside thee: neither is there any rock like our God.

(Psa 14:1 KJV)   The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.

(Psa 14:3 KJV)  They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

(Psa 73:25 KJV)  Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee.

(Psa 86:8 KJV)  Among the gods there is none like unto thee, O Lord; neither are there any works like unto thy works.

(Isa 41:17 KJV)  When the poor and needy seek water, and there is none, and their tongue faileth for thirst, I the LORD will hear them, I the God of Israel will not forsake them.

(Isa 45:5 KJV)  I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:

(Isa 45:6 KJV)  That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the LORD, and there is none else.

(Isa 45:18 KJV)  For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is none else.

(Isa 45:22 KJV)  Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.

(Micah 7:2 KJV)  The good man is perished out of the earth: and there is none upright among men: they all lie in wait for blood; they hunt every man his brother with a net.

(Hag 1:6 KJV)  Ye have sown much, and bring in little; ye eat, but ye have not enough; ye drink, but ye are not filled with drink; ye clothe you, but there is none warm; and he that earneth wages earneth wages to put it into a bag with holes.

(Rom 3:10 KJV)  As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:

(Rom 3:11 KJV)  There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.

(Rom 3:12 KJV)  They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

“Basically, there are four types of suffering.

The first type is that which comes as the result of natural disasters, such as an earthquake or a hurricane. The suffering that results from these disasters happens to both the righteous and unrighteous (Matthew 5:45).

A second type of suffering can be called man’s inhumanity to man. War would be classified under this type of suffering. Because of humanity’s greed and pride, people try to hurt other people (James 4:1-2).

A third type of suffering is best seen in the life of Job in the Old Testament; it came as a result of Satan’s attack on him. After receiving permission from God, Satan moved in and caused incredible suffering to Job and his family.

A fourth type of suffering is that which comes as a result of our own erroneous actions. For example, if I walk off the roof of my office and fall to the ground, breaking my leg, I am suffering because I broke God’s law of gravity. We also suffer when we break God’s moral laws.

Now if Adam and Even our grandparents had firstly not disobeyed God, tall this sins and suffering would not have existed in this world

Much suffering can be traced to the evil choices we make. Some, but not all, suffering is allowed by God as a punishment for sin. Often God simply forces us to live with the consequences of our actions (Galatians 6:7-8).

Whenever people break God’s laws, others are bound to suffer as well. I refer you to the story of Achan in Joshua 7. When he coveted and took some of the spoil from the battle of Jericho, Achan cost the lives of thirty-six men in battle against Ai. It is inevitable that others will suffer in the wake of an individual’s disobedience.

How we respond to suffering–whether or not we brought it on ourselves–is going to make us or break us as Christian pilgrims. Circumstances often do more to reveal our character than to shape it. But by properly responding to trials, we can develop patience and proven character (Romans 5:3-4).

Problems, stress, calamity, or the death of a loved one often cause us to search ourselves for any sin in our lives (see 1 Kings 17:18). Pain plants the flag of truth in a heavy heart. But we must be cautious not to let Satan overwhelm us with excessive and false guilt or grief (2 Corinthians 2:7). Job’s wife told him to curse God and die. He refused to give up and remained faithful to the Lord. Notice that in the end God gave him all he had before and even more (Job 42:10-17).

Instead of looking at our circumstances, we need to keep our eyes on Jesus Christ, the source of life. He will bring us through whatever situation we face, and as a result we will be stronger Christians, better able to serve Him because of our trials.

In a day of pessimism and suffering we can say with the psalmist, “The Lord is with me; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?” (Psalm 118:6). The Lord Himself, as the great Sufferer, is our comfort and hope in troubled times.

Before you so readily sin, do your thing, do think about what possible negatives consequences now it will also have on others, beside yourself.. (Gal 6:7 KJV)  Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

(Gal 6:8 KJV)  For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

Safe computer basics

Good Tips on Keeping that New PC Clean and Pure, Safe, working… 
” Here is what you need to do before you do anything else.
First check your actual ISP speed http://www.acanac.ca/speedtest/
 

1: CHECK YOUR FIREWALL SETTINGS Do this before you even connect your computer to the Internet. Firewalls prevent certain unwanted traffic from reaching your computer, including worms that spread through network connections. New laptops and desktops with Windows Vista (and, come Oct. 22, the next version of the operating system, Windows 7) and netbooks using Windows XP SP2 or higher have a firewall that is built in and turned on by default. You can make sure all is well by going to the Windows Security Center, clicking Start, then Control Panel, then Security Center and Windows Firewall.

2: CONTINUALLY  UPDATE YOUR SOFTWARE Even though you have a new machine, chances are that security fixes have been issued since the manufacturer loaded the software, so you will want to download those as soon as you get online.

Your new PC may prompt you to check for updates from Microsoft, but, if not, open Windows Update by clicking the Start button, then All Programs and then Windows Update. On the left pane, click “check for updates.” (For more information about Windows Security, see microsoft.com/protect.)

3: ADD SECURITY SOFTWARE Firewalls won’t help fend off viruses or Trojan horses that can come through e-mail messages, Web sites and pop-up ads. Given the frightening number of malicious programs that aim for Windows PCs, owners of these machines really need to use some security software. There are several free antivirus programs, like AVG 8.5 Free, Avast Antivirus and the forthcoming Microsoft Security Essentials, so even penniless students have no excuse to go without. Note that Vista comes with Windows Defender, which blocks spyware and pop-up ads, and that program can be downloaded free by Windows XP SP2 machines.

Since a lot of malicious programs now come through Web sites, you will also want to use one of the many free tools available to help you avoid malicious sites. Microsoft’s newest browser, Internet Explorer 8, will warn you if you try to visit sites it deems unsafe, deceptive or carriers of a common Web attack type called “cross-site scripting” attacks. Other browsers, including Chrome, Firefox and Safari, also warn users about potentially unsafe sites, using a blacklist kept by Google. There is also McAfee’s SiteAdvisor, a free add-on for the Internet Explorer and Firefox browsers (the latter works on both Windows and Mac), that shows site reputation information within search results pages, including warnings about potentially dangerous sites.

4: AUTOMATIC UPDATES everything, download Secunia PSI, a free tool that will help you make sure that all the programs on your PC get security patches.

5 BE CAREFUL Speaking of that, always be careful about which software you install from the Internet, OR FROM OTHERS, whether you have a PC or a Mac. These programs can contain vulnerabilities, and pirated programs and random add-ons may be outright malicious. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/09/03/technology/personaltech/03basics.html?_r=1&em

6: BACK UP YOUR HARD DRIVE. External hard drives are cheap these days, about 100 dollars, so back up all, all of your computer on an external flash drive periodically… admit it or not, the chance of getting at least one had drive crash is a definite possibility for whatever reasons now too, and you will be glad you had your computer backed up.
