14 “Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.”
“Immanuel” is Strong’s Word 6005 and it simply means, “with us (is) God“.
(Source: Economic Collapse Blog) – It isn’t just the price of oil that is collapsing. The last time commodity prices were this low was during the immediate aftermath of the last financial crisis. The Bloomberg Commodity Index fell to 110.4571 on Monday – the lowest that it has been since April 2009. Just like junk bonds, industrial commodities are a very reliable leading indicator.
In other words, prices for industrial commodities usually start to move in a particular direction before the overall economy does. We witnessed this in the summer of 2008 when a crash in commodity prices preceded the financial crisis in the fall by a couple of months. And right now, we are witnessing what may be another major collapse in commodity prices. In recent weeks, the price of copper has declined substantially. So has the price of iron ore. So has the price of nickel. So has the price of aluminum. You get the idea. So this isn’t just about oil. This is a broad-based commodity decline, and if it continues it is really bad news for the U.S. economy.
WEB Notes: This is absolute theft from the working man/woman who took these jobs because they were promised something in return. These men/woman fulfilled their obligation and now the companies and banks want to back out because they cannot fulfill theirs? How is this fair? If the people did not fulfill their obligation they would have been fired. Where is the punishment for the companies and banks and why is the government taking away your money in yet another fashion? We have taxes and fee’s and then the theft of taxes which went to the banks in the form of a bailout. Now they are stealing your retirement something most people said would never happen. Well it’s happening and most people will read this and say, ‘ehh it doesn’t matter because it’s not happening to me’. I would say, ‘not just yet, just wait… Those truckers and construction workers thought the same thing…’

WEB Notes: Sure another man-made chemical to introduce into our diets. How about just serving up clean and healthy food without all of the chemicals in our foods today? Well the profit margin just might not be there then right?
Americans have reached record obesity levels and not because they eat healthy. It is because they consume what the mainstream feeds them, from fast foot chains to frozen this and bagged that. God never intended for us to consume chemicals.
