***Million dollar one person companies?
It can still be done in America. If we don't wake up soon, though, the opportunities are going to be less and less.
For most aspiring entrepreneurs, starting a solo business that generates $1 million or more is a fantasy. But a small but growing number of people bring in sales in that ballpark before they hire a single employee. According to the U.S.Census Bureau, there were 30,174 “nonemployer” firms—those that employ only the owners--that logged $1 million to $2,499,999 in 2013. What’s the secret of these ultra-lean businesses? “Learning as much as you can,” says Rachel Charlupski, founder of The Babysitting Company, a babysitting network in 13 cities with seven figure revenue. Many of the entrepreneurs behind them are avid students of strategies like automation and hiring independent contractors that keep their businesses pared down and are fans of gurus like Tim Ferriss, author of The 4-Hour Workweek.

***U.S. Debt has worsened dramatically. Yet, get into a debate with a liberal, and they'll tell you that the economy is better under Obama. Now THAT'S denial.

***Southern Baptists are standing firm on gay marriage.
Prepare for civil disobedience.
That’s the message one prominent pastor is sending to some 16 million members of the Southern Baptist Convention.
Jack Graham, pastor of Prestonwood Baptist Church in Texas, said American Christians should be prepared for massive fallout if the Supreme Court legalizes same-sex unions.
“We want to stay in the system,” Graham told me in a telephone interview. “We want to work in the system. We want to support our government. We want to obey its laws.”
“But there’s a coming a day, I believe, that many Christians personally and churches corporately will need to practice civil disobedience on this issue.”
