A Lawyer After God’s Own Heart

During the rebuilding of New Orleans , residents often were challenged

with the task of tracing their home titles back potentially hundreds

of years. With a community rich with history stretching back over two

centuries, houses have been passed along through generations of

family, sometimes making it quite difficult to establish ownership.

This story is about a letter an attorney wrote to the FHA on behalf of

a client.

A New Orleans lawyer sought an FHA loan for a client. He was told the

loan would be granted if he could prove satisfactory title to a parcel

of property being offered as collateral. The title to the property

dated back to 1803, which took the lawyer three months to track down.

After sending the information to the FHA, he received the following

reply:

Actual reply from FHA:

"Upon review of your letter adjoining your client’s loan application,

we note that the request is supported by an Abstract of Title. While

we compliment the able manner in which you have prepared and presented

the application, we must point out that you have only cleared title to

the proposed collateral property back to 1803. Before final approval

can be accorded, it will be necessary to clear the title back to its

origin."

Actual response by the lawyer:

"Your letter regarding title in Case No. (_______) has been received. I

note that you wish to have title extended further than the 206 years

covered by the present application.

I was unaware that any educated person in this country, particularly

those working in the property area, would not know that Louisiana was

purchased by the United States from France in 1803, the year of origin

identified in our application.

For the edification of uninformed FHA bureaucrats, the title to the

land prior to U.S. ownership was obtained from France, which had

acquired it by Right of Conquest from Spain .

The land came into the possession of Spain by Right of Discovery made

in the year 1492 by a sea captain named Christopher Columbus, who had

been granted the privilege of seeking a new route to India by the

Spanish monarch, Queen Isabella.

The good Queen Isabella, being a pious woman and almost as careful

about titles as the FHA, took the precaution of securing the blessing

of the Pope before she sold her jewels to finance Columbus’

expedition.

Now the Pope, as I’m sure you may know, is the emissary of Jesus

Christ, the Son of God, and God, it is commonly accepted, created this

world. Therefore, I believe it is safe to presume that God also made

that part of the world called Louisiana .

God, therefore, would be the owner of origin and His origins date back

to before the beginning of time, the world as we know it, and the FHA.

I hope you find God’s original claim to be satisfactory. Now, may we

have our ____ loan?"

The loan was immediately approved!

First Anniversary on Entire Wellness Protocol – Hope Isn’t a One Time Deal

From Mel Friedman’s website:

melman raft Hiya All,

Welcome as always.

Saturday, August 21st is the second anniversary of the inception of the protocol that has restored my health as outlined on the protocol page of my website. It also marks one full year of my being on the entire Burgstiner Wellness Protocol from Logos Nutritionals.

I have been symptom free since December 2009 and off all Morgellons related medications for for a little more than nine months now.  If someone would have told me two years ago that I would be rafting down the Truckee River twice in a five week period of time, I would have found them difficult to believe.

The fact that I sustained a minor back injury between the two rafting trips makes it a little more difficult for even me to comprehend.  Rafting down the Truckee was something that I had not done in the first nine years that I have lived here in Reno. Now, I have gone down two separate parts of the river… the second even more beautiful than the first, as we started high atop Lake Tahoe at Tahoe city.

As you gently float down the river from Tahoe City to Truckee, you are in awe of winding through the mountains.  The beauty is incomprehensible.  During my five hour trip, many times I found my mind wandering to all of you who are caught up in the nightmare of Morgellons disease, and looking forward to the day when many of you will be joining me on a trip such as this.

As I have often said, never, never give up Hope. My back is a little sore and my knees are a little stiff, but according to my doctor, Shannon Zamboni MD, I am “The Picture of Health”.

Now I would like to thank the folks from A2Z, a very special thanks to my doctor Shannon Zamboni as well as John Burgstiner for enduring along with me my struggle of many years against Morgellons.

God Bless You All.  Never, Never Give up Hope.

Wisdom of Tea Time

green tea Most Americans are far too busy chasing success to take the time for afternoon tea. However, studies have shown that those who do enjoy a regular tea time enjoy substantial benefits to their health. 

Researchers at the US Department of Agriculture have found that tea, when regularly consumed, increases insulin activity more than fifteen fold… great news for millions  who are overweight and prediabetic or who have developed type II diabetes. It appears that the polyphenols in green tea, black tea and oolong tea enhance insulin production and reduce insulin resistance, helping cells to recognize and respond to the hormone.

The most promising reported health benefit of polyphenols may be their ability to protect us from the many hazards of high blood sugar. They do this by binding bad cholesterol (LDL) and reducing glycation end products, two of the body’s most offensive enemies in terms of aging and degenerative disease.

Glycation occurs when simple sugars such as glucose or fructose become attached to proteins or fats without the moderation of an enzyme. Cross linked molecules that are highly disruptive to metabolism are the normal result… unless of course we are enjoying our regular cup of tea!

The good news doesn’t stop there.  Studies have linked many other benefits of regular green tea consumption to catechins and other powerful phytonutrients… demonstrating positive impacts on everything from mental function and weight loss to heart disease and arthritis.

So what are you waiting for? Start a healthy new tradition in your life today…. tea time!

Is Wasp Spray Better Self Defense Than Pepper Spray?

wasp spray According to a popular urban legend, a woman who worked as a church receptionist in  a high risk area was concerned about someone coming into the office on Monday to rob them when they were counting the collection. She asked the local police department about using pepper spray and they recommended to her that she get a can of wasp spray instead.

The wasp spray, they told her, can shoot up to twenty feet away and is a lot more accurate, while with the pepper spray, they have to get too close to you and could overpower you. The wasp spray temporarily blinds an attacker until they get to the hospital for an antidote.

She keeps a can on her desk in the office and it doesn’t attract attention from people like a can of pepper spray would. She also keeps one nearby at home for home protection.

Val Glinka teaches self-defense to students at Sylvania Southview High School . For decades, he’s suggested putting a can of wasp and hornet spray near your door or bed. Glinka says, “This is better than anything I can teach them.”

Glinka considers it inexpensive, easy to find, and more effective than mace or pepper spray. “If someone tries to break into your home”, Glinka says, “spray the culprit in the eyes”. It’s a tip he’s given to students for decades.

It’s also one he wants everyone to hear. If you’re looking for protection, Glinka says look to the spray. “That’s going to give you a chance to call the police; maybe get out.  Maybe even save a life. “

However, some have advised against using wasp spray as an alternative to pepper spray, primarily for two reasons:

  1. The active ingredient in most wasp sprays are pyrethrins, compounds derived from the chrysanthemum plant which penetrate the nervous system of insects and kill them.  Wasp sprays are not formulated to be used directly on humans, and their safety and effectiveness for that purpose has not been tested.  They may inflict far more serious long term harm than pepper spray does.
  2. Many jurisdictions specifically prohibit the use of any self-defense sprays other than pepper spray.  Additionally, most spray insecticide containers include warnings stating that “It is a violation of federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling”.

While pepper spray is far less conspicuous as a potential weapon, it may in fact be much more dangerous to both the attacker and the victim as well as any innocent bystanders.  Given the potential legal liabilities involved with the use of wasp spray, I think I will stick with pepper spray… and a baseball bat.
