LOA Today – 10.08.15

We jump into the Wayback Machine to December 2012 when I interviewed Bob Burg, author of The Go Giver. We talked about all the different ways in life that the giving mentality helps people succeed in their lives in a myriad number of ways. For those who want to apply the Law of Attraction to their lives and careers in a way that they also financially benefit, this interview is perfect.

William R. Polk – Why Many Muslims Hate the West

The issue of terrorist attacks on America has been so politically sensitive that most commentators have simply wrapped themselves in the flag and closed their eyes and ears. Yet, even in fairy tales, ostriches were never saved by burying their heads in the sand. It is not a good defensive posture and it wouldn’t be wise for real-life Americans to behave …

US home ownership rate hits lowest level in two decades By Andre Damon

The economic recession that began with the collapse of the housing market in 2007 officially came to an end in June 2009—more than six years ago.

Chaos And Propaganda: Washington’s “Reality-Based Order” – Colin Todhunter

In 2011, Hilary Clinton announced the US was at war. She wasn’t referring to the US’s ongoing invasions, wars and occupations but an ideological war for hearts and minds. Clinton lamented the fact that, since the end of the cold war, US global ideological influence had weakened, especially with the advent of the Internet and TV channels like RT. Of course, Hollywood still manages to propagate the ‘great American …

The Great Middle Class Extinction: “95% of New Homes Built for Rich or Poor”

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times all over again. “Since 2000, 95 percent of new households in King County have been either rich or poor. A mere 5 percent could be considered middle income.” That is a statistic reportedly true of Seattle – the heart of King County in Washington state – but which …
