Don't Let Your Ambition Be Minimum

You can't and shouldn't live on minimum wage. It's minimum.

If you stop there, you will eventually starve.

If you stop there, then you should starve as it will motivate you to NOT stop there, but rather do whatever you must to move up and or out.

If we make the minimum too comfortable, then too many people will stay right there and block others from having the entry level start that they are holding.

Take Care of Me

Alexis De Tocqueville warned that we would know the end of our unique system by the growth of soft tyranny where we transition to a new system, the nanny state. Here we are just over 2 centuries later with people cheering for the government to take care of all their needs and release them of all worry.  

In exchange, you need only vote for the party of individuals that are promoting those programs.  Not seeing that quality of service will always go down in a race with the level that expense goes up.  

How soon before they take our paychecks and give us an allowance?

The Operating System for Life

DNA is the most advanced code every written. It can be looked at by strand, but it can also be built into dimensional structure of code. It is light years past our present understanding, though we learn more every day.

Information does not happen spontaneously. You also need the means to translate, act upon and maintain.  You could have a DVD, but without the code written on it, the drive that reads it and the machine that does the operation, you have nothing.

We need to start with programming. Our programming is what tells our cells how to grow. The genetic programs RNA and DNA contain these instructions. That information needs protection so their genome doesn't degrade in whatever the environment. That would be the lipid membrane.

They also need the machinery to transform chemical energy into metabolic energy so they can replicate. Pre-existing proteins are needed to catalyze the reactions of metabolism and replication of the machinery. The synthesis of proteins depends on  different pre-existing proteins and the ribosome which is like a small factory.

Take away any of these components and life doesn't exist. All this complexity is required at the same time and place for the simplest single-celled life.

It doesn't stop there. The DNA information must be decoded. The ribosome is what does it, but the instructions to build ribosomes are on the DNA. The decoding also requires energy from ATP, built by ATP-synthase motors, built from instructions in the DNA decoded by ribosomes. This interdependence rules out chance.

Functional information has never been observed to arise by physical interaction alone. Matter cannot think and cannot produce information.

Dr. Michael Denton(a microbiologist) wrote: "The complexity of the simplest known type of cell is so great that it is impossible to accept that such an object could have been thrown together suddenly by some kind of freakish, vastly improbable event. Such an occurrence would be indistinguishable from a miracle"

In a recent Journal in Frontiers in Genetics, part of the US Library of Medicine, new findings on dual-gene codes are showing more complexity than previously imagined. What was once thought to be redundant information is now being recognized as secondary coding for another protein. Another cellular language that the ribosome interprets that tells it to pause and regulate the rate of protein production, allowing it to fold the protein into a 3 dimensional shape. So one layer of info tells it what kind and the other gives various shapes for the protein structure, but both sets of info are in the same section of DNA. The authors of the journal entry are not creationists, but state their findings in the context of complex intelligent design.

Mutations do not add information to this complex process. When you look at the human genome, the number of mutations is increasing form each generation. The DNA copying process has its own repair system, but the random single-character misspellings, deletions, insertions, duplication, trans-locations and inversions happen frequently. When matched with a mate that has the same mutation, you may have more serious problems like genetic diseases or birth defects. We can trace family lineage and generation by these mutations. The farther you go back, the less you find. This can be verified in a 2009 article in Nature, Human Mutation Rate Revealed. Elie Dolgin states, “Every time human DNA is passed from one generation to the next it accumulates 100–200 new mutations, according to a DNA-sequencing analysis of the Y chromosome.” 

“Mutations are word-processing errors in the cell’s instruction manual. Mutations systematically destroy genetic information—even as word processing errors destroy written information. While there are some rare beneficial mutations (even as there are rare beneficial misspellings), bad mutations outnumber them—perhaps by a million to one. So even allowing for beneficial mutations, the net effect of mutation is overwhelmingly deleterious. The more the mutations, the less the information. This is fundamental to the mutation process.” –Dr. John Sanford, Geneticist.

Babel On

Have you ever thought about how regions and groups of people were named?

Noah’s 1st mentioned grandson, Gomer, moved to what is now Turkey. His descendants were known as Gomerites and later Gauls and Galatians. They later spread into France and Spain. For centuries France was called Gaul and North-west Spain is called Galicia to this day. According to Welsh historians, some of went to Wales. J. Davis, says they ‘landed on the Isle of Britain from France, about three hundred years after the flood’ and the Welsh language is called Gomeraeg (after their ancestor Gomer).

We can trace the lineages of every major group by DNA back to the cradle of civilization just as their ancestors profess. The Encyclopedia Britannica says that the Armenians traditionally claim to be descended from Togarmah and Ashkenaz, which is the Hebrew word for Germany.  They were 2 of the 3 sons of Gomer.

As people spread out across the globe, they lost certain traits that were once shared in the original DNA.  Once no one in that area carried that trait, it was lost and many characteristics became more defined and distinct.  

Now we have come back together in this great country, those lost traits may be once again introduced into your lineage.   Our melting pot has more than the ability to blend.  It has the ability to give us what we were missing on so many levels.

Promoting Failure

Democrat compassion means making failure more palatable.  Higher wages for an entry level position, rather than encouraging them to get the experience and move up or out to a better job.

To those that find themselves making less than a "livable wage" - Don't just work, be an excellent employee.  Do just do your job well, be willing to help others.  Exude leadership.  Take classes and/or ask many questions of those that have been raised up.  You must realize that YOU are your own boss and that you need to make yourself valuable before you negotiate for higher compensation.

Redefining America

The Left has taken a remarkable tact in dominating how we think.    If we take the etymology of liberty:

And compare it with the etymology of liberal:

We find that they have changed the definition to the polar opposite of  its roots in freedom to one that gives up freedom or liberty to the State and makes us the wards whether wanted or not.

Now, they have a new Ruler that continues this method to the extremes.

Obama's plan for peace is to bomb people we don't know that are trying to escape totalitarian Islamic regimes, send money and arms to Radical Muslims that believe they can issue in their Mahdi by starting World War III.

Obama's jobs plan has put more people OUT of work than can find it.

And NOW, in his latest en devour, Obama has created a healthcare system that has taken health coverage AWAY from people and made it nearly impossible to replace.   If they are among the few successful, they can look forward to higher rates, higher deductibles, and lower quality as Doctors will be forced to take less patients while being reimbursed less.   If we use Medicare as the example, many Doctors can't afford to provide the services as they will lose money on their time.

So, what has REALLY been redefined is failure:
