USEmbassyManilaHere is the best way to process a passport for your fiancee in the Philippines?

When a foreigner processes a passport for their finances or wife, it’s wise to do it under their maiden name first. When processing it under the wife’s single name, all you will need is a valid ID and an NBI clearance. At times, a Barangay Clearance might be required to determine residence. If no valid ID is within your possession, under their single name, then you can take their birth certificate to the NBI. Continue reading

Dear Johanna:

Strange, but true: the Big Easy is, on average, eight feet below sea level. Tall levees to the north and south keep the Mississippi River and Lake Pontchartrain from pouring into the center of the city. And an intricate system of pumping stations and canals keep the land dry, even after heavy rainfall.

Without this drainage system, much of the city would be engulfed in water. New Orleans occupies swampland created by millions of years’ worth of silt deposits from the Mississippi River. As a result, the ground is wet and spongy, and prone to flooding from rainfall and hurricanes.

New Orleans KatrinaFloodingIronically, all the pumps, canals, and levees that work so hard to keep New Orleans above water are actually causing the city to sink at a rate of three feet per century. Some scientists predict that by the year 2100, the “City That Care Forgot” will be under water. Does New Orleans have a deep-sea Mardi Gras in its future? Scuba gear or not, it’s interesting to ponder.

FED – How To End the Federal Reserve System | Gary North

FED - Gary NorthFED – How to End The Federal Reserve

Things are not always as complicated as they seem. With respect to the Federal Reserve System, it is a deliberate mystery. It was deliberately designed in 1910 to deceive the public, who were opposed the idea of a central bank. The conspirators who met on Jekyll Island in November 1910 knew this. They did good work from their point of view. They concealed the beast.

The general public today knows little about the FED. Prior to Ron Paul’s Presidential run in 2007-8, far fewer people understood it.

I have been asked: “How could we get rid of the Federal Reserve? What will replace it?” The answer: either the free market or Congress. Continue reading

First President to have a social security number belonging to another man, from a state he has never lived in.

First President to preside over a cut to the credit-rating of the United States. Continue reading
