The Secret!
 -- Marcia, Oak Ridge     
    This is sooo true...it's THE SECRET!!!
     -- Cherie, Honolulu, HI     
    Wake the Hell up and have a good look around...That will change your world too.

    There is much wisdom from the days of the Roman Empire. We forget that it was celebrating 4 or 5 hundred years when Christ was born. It built things like the Pantheon which are still standing a thousand years later even after a pope stole the lead roof covering for St. Peters. There are some actual interior shots in the Angels & Demons flick. It was the biggest dome ever built for centuries. Let's not be flip. The USA is 233 years of age and in danger of fading away due to being bankrupt. China alone holds $2.3 TRILLION of our "markers." Be afraid!

    Yes J.B. and none other than the Ranking Repubican Senator form Utah the glib Mr. Orrin Hatch expained the reason for our kowtowing to China just two days ago. He said, "Back in 2006 when Bush was President we never asked or cared how we were going to pay for things, we just borrowed it." Bush signed a defit busting prescription drug bill with no idea how to pay for it, Obama will sign a deficit reducing Health Care Bill. Bush put in tax cuts in 2001 that have destroyed our national accounts and fought wars without paying for them. Thanks to the vote get Mr. Obama we are getting back onto the right track that Mr. Clinton had left us. Surpluses and debt reduction as far as we can see, but it will take time. Bush gave us eight years of profilgatcy which will be hard to men.
     -- Waffler, Smith     
    It IS so true. The secret being that one is empowered from birth with the right to freely choose what is the best direction in his/her life but unfortunately has been taught he has no choice to the life he undertakes but is molded through indoctrination centers (schools) into the role individuals play in the game of "Life" created for them by the international elite through the control over the economic lives of eveyones life just like the banker in the board game of "Monopoly." The one hitch is the quote itself. Reality is the change of thought, the result being the creation of what one desires. Start thinking freedom and if you're open to the truth of what is self evident the entrance to the road of the big secret becomes evident as well. The road is called truth and following it leads to more truth exposed and the truth will set you free and freedom is what the bith right of every individual is but..., because of false teachers and leaders by the time one is 18 he is an indoctrinated member of the false reality that has been set up around us by those who seek their freedom and wealth through the enslavement of the rest of us through the criminal economics that if practiced by any others in the world would land them in trouble individually or as a group. How long will America believe in this fallacy that is promoted as reality? Time will tell and we can all be sure of that fact.

    To change your thoughts, changing your world would be to quit condemning the Republicans for what the Democrats have accelerated. Both are equally murdering rights, freedom, liberty, individual sovereignty, morality, prosperity while implementing their despotic statist theocracy of choice. To return to the priciples supporting law and justice, as was the creative foundation of the U.S. would be such a thought shift as would change the world.

    Read "Crash Proof 2.0" by Schiff. If it doesn't open your eyes to what both parties are doing to us, nothing will.
     -- J. B. Wulff, Bristol, CT     
    We must get on our knees and pray.We went through two world wars amd have learned nothing.Our BLESSED MOTHER said the only way this planet will not bleed is prayer.At Fatima she said countries will be annilated if we do not pray for peace.
     -- Herman H. Koch, Picayune, MS.     
    This is the reason why most do not change their thoughts ...

    Where was this quote taken from? I have seen it attributed to other people, but not Marcus Aurelius Antoninus.
     -- Average Joe, Boulder     
    How ironic is it that religions use the 10 commandments as a guide when they state nothing about religious beliefs other then false idols?

    It's a good quote, but I also think it's by someone else - Norman Vincent Peale. I had this error on my own website, fixed..
     -- lsi, cyberspace     
    I should add, Marcus did apparently say something similar to the following, which I quite like also: "The universe is change; our life is what our thoughts make of it."
