    solution to finantial bailout!!!!!

    I got this in an e-mail. It's an interesting plan!!!!

    > I’m against the $700,000,000,000.00 bailout of our
    > financial institutions
    > Instead, I’m in favor of giving $700,000,000,000 to
    > America in
    > a We Deserve It Dividend.
    > To make the math simple, let’s assume there are
    > 200,000,000  bonafide adults in the U.S.
    > Our population is about 301,000,000 +/- counting every man,
    > woman
    > and child. So 200,000,000 might be a fair stab at adults 18
    > and up..
    > So divide 200 million adults 18+ into $700 billon that
    > equals $3,500,000.00.
    > The plan is to give $3,500,000 to every person 18+ as a We Deserve It Dividend.
    > Of course, it would NOT be tax free.
    > So let’s assume a tax rate of 30%.

    > Every individual 18+ has to pay $1,050,000 in taxes.
    > That sends $210,500,000,000 right back to Uncle Sam.
    > But it means that every adult 18+ has $2,450,00.00 in their
    > pocket.
    > A husband and wife has $4,900,000.00.
    > What would you do with $2,450,000 to $4,900,000 in your
    > family?
    > Pay off your mortgage – housing crisis solved.
    > Buy that vacation home you have always dreamed of (or 2 or 3)
    > Repay college loans – what a great boost to new grads
    > Put away money for college – it’ll be there
    > Save in a bank – create money to loan to entrepreneurs.
    > Buy a new car (or 2 or 3) – create jobs
    > Invest in the market – capital drives growth
    > If we’re going to re-distribute wealth let’s really do it...instead of trickling out
     a puny $1000.00 ( “vote buy” ) economic incentive.
    > If we’re going to do an $700 billion bailout, let’s bail out every adult U S Citizen 18+!
    > How do you spell Economic Boom?

    > And remember, this plan only really costs $489.5 Billion
    > because $210.5 Billion is returned
    > instantly in taxes to Uncle Sam.
    > I rest my case!!!!!

    Anglican Priest Cracks Charles Wesley Code

    An Anglican priest has finally cracked the code Methodist co-founder Charles Wesley used when writing about sensitive matters in his diary some 250 years ago.

    Over 1,000 handwritten pages, dating from 1736 to 1756, have been deciphered by the Rev. Professor Kenneth Newport, pro vice-chancellor for research and academic development at Liverpool Hope University.

    The transcribed pages reveal the extent of Charles’ anger with his brother, fellow Methodist founder John Wesley, over John’s plans to marry and disagreements over a split from the Church of England.

    "He was very much opposed to separation, he saw the Methodist Societies as within the established church and anything that smacked of separation was something he took a very strong view of," Newport said, according to The Telegraph.

    "At one point in the journal he is talking to the society at Grimsby and goes into block capitals and says 'I told them I would remain with them as long as they remained with the Church of England but should they ever turn their back on the Church they turn their back on me.'"

    In one section, Charles expressed his disapproval of John’s plans to secretly marry Grace Murray because of her previous engagement to another man.

    He wrote: “He (John) is insensible of both his own folly and danger, and of the divine goodness in so miraculously saving him.”

    Newport has worked on the diary pages for nine years, studying photocopies of the originals which are stored at the John Rylands Library in Manchester.

    His breakthrough in unlocking Wesley’s code of shorthand and abbreviations came when he used the King James Bible to transcribe excerpts from the Gospels.

    The transcribed diary pages will be published together with 9,000 never-before-seen poems and hymns.

    I sure would be interested to see these "new" hymns and poems, wouldn't you?
