The Family Need and the ALL Purpose Drinking Water


Financial Support Appreciated

John R. Houk

© September 5, 2014

 

I’m having a difficult time beginning this post. I am about to embark on a please support this blog because the Editor’s family has a financial need post.

 

So here it goes.

 

Left Wingers, Muslims and atheists are more than welcome to get on board, but I am not going to hold my breath. That group is more likely to ridicule or choke themselves in mocking laughter than supporting a Christian Right Conservative Counterjihad blogger as I definitely am. I blog primarily on three blogs. I consider SlantRight 2.0 my flagship blog. My next most popular blog is NeoConservative Christian Right (NCCR) on WordPress. The third blog is called Ubiquitous8Thoughts on a more obscure blog platform called Over-blog. All three blogs have roughly the same content; however posting on Over-blog tends to a bit more limitations than Blogger and WordPress.

 

Only at SlantRight 2.0 do I have a donate button located near the top right underneath the picture of the Crusader Knight. The link I just placed under “donate button” on this post should also take you to my PayPal account if you are so inclined to express your generosity. The SlantRight 2.0 donate button on the blog will take you to a donate page managed by PayPal. The link I have provided on this post I have had hit and miss success with it working, but either way you do not need a PayPal account to use it. PayPal also utilizes a credit card/debit card format as well.

 

Our Family Need

 

Now that I have gotten the uncomfortable way to offer material support to this blogger allow me to share our family need.

 

Our family actually has many financial obligations to meet; however I wish to emphasize one in particular. My wife and I are Grandparent/Guardians to three of our Grandchildren. My lovely wife and I married in 1990 in which both of us were previously married. Together we established a Brady Bunch situation: I had two kids and she had three. In 1990 those five children ranged from 7 years old at the youngest to 14 years old at the eldest. One of those children had four children of their own. I will not reveal which one of ours had the four for privacy reasons – theirs and ours.

 

Diana and I are raising three of the four and those three are all boys.

 

As Christian Right Conservatives we do not have a lot of confidence in the Public School system to use Christian morality and American patriotism to promote good values into our Grandchildren. We have been using the service of an AWESOME private Christian School called Victory Christian School located in Tulsa, OK. Victory is not one of those ritzy private schools. Victory has a good academic regimen at affordable prices. Plus all three Grandchildren are involved in the Victory football program. The two youngest in 1st and 2nd Grade football and the oldest in 7th Grade football.

 

Now for some of you good Capitalists out there that realize there is no good deal that goes like something for nothing. Diana makes ends meet by selling Kangen Water Machines. The best machine might sound spendy but it really isn’t if you have good credit. The best machine can be financed for roughly $45.00/month. You contact Diana with details on how to set that up. Or after you examine the benefits of Kangen Water (and those benefits are enormously huge), you can go directly to Diana’s website and click the purchase now button to get the easy to install and use machine:

Below is an edited excerpt from the Kangen Water E-book that only gets to the tip of the iceberg for what Kangen Water can do for you and your family. Tomorrow I will share how you can turn a Kangen Water machine purchase into a money making enterprise as a home based business to supplement your income.

 Water: The Fiber of Life

 

YOUR BODY IS WATER

 

Drinking water every day is crucial to maintaining optimal health. Since your body is about 60-70% water, your organs, 60-70% water, your organs blood, and other bodily systems require quality hydration in order to function at their peak performance.

 

“Quality hydration” refers to water that is clean and free of pollutants or contaminants, contains minerals that support proper health, and is at a very positive pH level.

 

Where on this Earth can you find such a high-quality water?

 

Unfortunately, the world’s water is polluted with agricultural run- off, sewage, and other toxic agents that compromise our health. Even some bottled waters are no more than well-marketed tap water. And since their filtering processes eliminate all minerals – even the healthy ones – you will experience no additional benefits.

 

Thankfully, Enagic® Kangen Water® is delicious, healthy water that filters all unwanted contaminants and pollutants found in your ordinary tap water, but the forward-thinking Enagic® technology ensures that the necessary minerals are left intact. Kangen Water® also has the ability to properly hydrate the body while creating a positive alkaline environment.

 

What could be more important? After all, your body is water.

 

Hydration

 

Kangen Water® can provide ultimate hydration for your whole body. The importance of hydration in a healthy body cannot be overstated. You need 8 cups of Kangen Water® a day to keep your body working properly with clean, filtered, alkaline water.

 

Minerals

 

Kangen Water® contains the minerals calcium, sodium, potassium, and magnesium. These minerals provide your body with the healthy boost you need to get through your day, and get optimal performance from your body. Unlike reverse osmosis, which is a water filtering process that strips away even helpful minerals, Enagic® water ionizing machines do NOT filter out these helpful minerals.

 

Alkalinity

 

Kangen Water® is slightly alkaline, with a pH level of 8.5 – 9.5. Enagic’s certified innovative technology uses the process of electrolysis to generate as much alkaline drinking water as you could possibly need (along with 4 other waters). Instead of nourishing your body with acidic and sugary beverages, you should be hydrating with clean, alkaline water every day.

 

Taste

 

In a taste test of 10 Southern US municipal waters, expert judges made clear what most of us already knew: tap water just doesn’t taste good! Cities such as Houston, Atlanta, and Charlotte were criticized for offering tap water that tastes “like a chemistry lab,” “like having a gulp of swimming pool,” and “like a wet Band Aid”1. Bottled water has also been judged harshly for its unfavorable taste. But Kangen Water® drinkers enjoy a mild and pleasant taste, appearance, and smell. This delicious water will help you stay committed to your 8 cups of water a day!

           

Convenience

 

With its attractive and chic design, you can enjoy the convenience of generating any of the 5 healthy types of Enagic® water – including Kangen Water® – from the comforts of your own kitchen. The Enagic® water ionizing machines are easily connected to your kitchen faucet. No more storing pitchers of filtered water in the refrigerator, or buying bottled water every time you go out!

           

Budget-Friendly

 

Kangen Water® is a relief to virtually any budget. A family of four can consume 2 gallons of water daily for just $1.46 a year! Compared to other bottled waters and home delivery water services, you can save around $1000 – $7000 annually! This affordable, healthy water will keep your body and your pocketbook happy year after year.

           

There’s no denying that Kangen Water ® is the right choice for you and your family!

 

America’s Other Drinking Problem

           

Now that you know the perks of drinking alkaline Kangen Water® every day for optimal hydration, let’s take a deeper look at what the popular alternative is in our culture today.

           

Addicted to Sugar

           

The average American consumes about 600 cans of soft drink a year! This number may be shocking at first, but not when you consider the billions of dollars soft drink companies spend every year to make sure their sales stays high1. And while the soft drink giants target many different age groups in their marketing campaigns, they especially target our youth. Boys ages 12-29 consume more soda than any other demographic – about 2 quarts a day! 1

 

Why is this a problem?

           

Unfortunately, soft drinks contain more sugar, calories, and acidity than your body needs (or wants). American Heart Association suggests the maximum amount of daily sugar intake not exceed 25 grams for women, and 37.5 grams for men2. Also, anything lower than 7.0 pH is considered acidic, but most soft drinks are far below this number.

 

Let’s see a breakdown of these popular soft drinks that are fueling our nation:

 

Nutritional Facts of Popular 12-Ounce Soft Drinks  3,4,5

 

Brand Name                         Sugar (grams)  Calories  pH Level

 

7-UP                                       41.46                      145            3.202

 

CHERRY COLA                   44.42                      154             2.522

           

COCA-COLA CLASSIC    40.74                       150             2.525

SPRITE                               40.10                        155               3.298

 

 

Kangen Water ® is Right for You!

 

Why choose a sugary drink, when Kangen Water® contains 0 grams of sugar?

 

Why choose a high caloric drink, when Kangen Water® contains 0 calories?

 

Why choose an acidic drink, when Kangen Water® is balanced with perfect alkalinity?

           

Why choose anything but Kangen Water®?

YOU CAN imagine that being a Christian, an activist and a person that actively is involved in a lay capacity in ministry outreach in Pakistan; is a person that may be arrested for blasphemy, beaten up by a Muslim crowd or even murdered.
 
Here are some examples of threatening situations Shamim lives with as it happens to other Christians living in Pakistan:
 
Forced conversion to Islam of Christian and Hindu girls continues to rise in Pakistan. A recent report launched by the MSP (Movement for Solidarity and Peace) revealed that 1,000 Christian and Hindu girls, aged between 12 and 25, are forced to convert to Islam every year. It is estimated that Christian girls make up 70 per cent of this number, while Hindus make up the remainder.
 
READ THE REST (Girls are being forced to convert to Islam in Pakistan, but because they are Christian nobody cares; By Nasir Saeed, CLAAS UK; Christianity Today; 4/14/14)
 
There is no provision in Pakistan’s blasphemy law to punish a false accuser or a false witness. Since 1990, more than 65 Christians have been killed for “blasphemy;” more than 165 cases are waiting for verdicts.
 
In recent years, the Christians of Pakistan have become one of the most vulnerable religious communities in the world. Most of the time, the Pakistani extremists use two common accusations to persecute the Christians: defamatory remarks toward Mohammed, and burning pages of Quran.
 
Christians in Pakistan, a news site on behalf of the Pakistani Christian community, predicted that the situation is becoming alarming. The site alleges that there are currently many cases being reported of Christians being targeted, but no action to reform or address the problem by any government official.
 
In a recent incident in Badami Bagh near Pakistan’s eastern city of Lahore, Sawan Masih, a Pakistani Christian and two Muslims were quarreling over the drinking of alcohol. Four days later, on March 9, the Muslims accused him of insulting the Prophet Muhammad — in Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Sudan and Iran, under blasphemy laws, an allegation punishable by death.
 
Police quickly arrested Masih, but a massive mob of 3000 Muslims wanted police to hand “the blasphemer” over to them. The mob attacked the Joseph colony, a poor Christian neighborhood, and burned 180 houses. Two churches were vandalized. READ THE REST (Muslim Persecution of Christians Escalating in Pakistan; By Mohshin Habib; Gatestone Institute; 4/9/13 2:00 am)
 
A Pakistani Christian girl Rimsha Masih who was arrested for alleged blasphemy last year and forced into hiding for fear of her life has moved to Canada, an activist said today.
 
Rimsha Masih could have faced life in prison if convicted over allegations that she set fire to pages of the Koran in the poor, run-down neighbourhood where she lived on the edge of Islamabad.
 
 
She was released on bail and the case against her was quashed in November, but she and her family were forced into hiding, living under government protection in fear of their lives.
 
But a Christian activist in Pakistan told AFP today that Rimsha and her close relatives had moved to Canada.

Release partners say that Christians forced to flee from their homes during the Rimsha Masih (also known as Rimsha Misrik) blasphemy row are still homeless – and increasingly desperate.
 
Between 800 and 1,000 families from Mehrabad are still living in tents or makeshift shelters in a forest area near Islamabad, more than a year after fleeing their homes. They lack even basic services such as water and fear officials may soon move them on.
 
Release sources say the Christians still fear retaliatory attacks from Islamist extremists enraged by the blasphemy accusations made against Rimsha, a teenager with learning difficulties, in August 2012.

Two weeks ago today, our sister Asia Bibi was scheduled to finally have the appeal against her conviction for blasphemy and resulting death sentence heard by High Court in Lahore, Pakistan. The hearing didn’t happen. No reason for the delay was announced, and no new hearing date was set.
 
It was the fifth time her appeal has been scheduled to start…and the fifth time there has been a delay. The reasons for the delays have been varied: there have been sick judges and lawyers who couldn’t make it at the appointed hour.
 
The reality is that no judge wants to hear her case. If they uphold the conviction and death sentence, the world will rain down criticism on the injustice of putting to death a Christian wife and mother. But radical Muslims in Pakistan have announced that there will be a price to be paid by any judge who overturns the verdict and allows Asia Bibi to go free. For the judges, it is a no-win situation.
 
 
Each time her case has been announced and then delayed, I’ve pictured Asia Bibi going through these emotional ups and downs. I’ve thought of her daughters going to bed without a hug from their mom on the night they thought they’d bring her home; her husband wondering again if he’ll ever see his wife outside of prison walls.
 
On June 19th, it will have been five years since Asia Bibi’s arrest. There is a legal maxim that justice delayed is justice denied. Justice for Asia Bibi has been delayed, and then delayed again four more times. As of today, no new hearing date has been announced. Who knows when her appeal might go forward?

On August 14, another Christian girl, 12-year-old Muqadas Kainat (which means “Holy Universe”) was ambushed in a field near her home in Sahawil by five Muslim men who “gang raped and murdered” her.  At the time, her father was at a hospital visiting her sick mother.  He and other family members began a frantic search, until a tip led them to the field where his daughter’s body lay.  The postmortem revealed that she had been “gang raped and later strangled to death by five men.”  Police, as usual, did not arrest anyone.  As a Salem News report puts it, “Complicating matters is the fact that several Christian girls in this remote area have been raped and forced to both marry into the Muslim community and abandon their own religion, human rights groups report…. there is a history in this part of Pakistan according to the Christian community, of local authorities failing to investigate cases of rape or other violence against Christians, often for fear of influential Muslims or militants.”
 
 
…Here are ten more anecdotes, chosen at random from the many former documented cases:
 
1.      Nisha, a 9-year-old Christian girl was abducted by Muslims, gang-raped, murdered by repeated blows to her head, and then dumped into a canal (May, 2009).
 
2.      Gulfam, another 9-year-old Christian girl, was raped by a Muslim man.  Though not killed, she was left “in shock and in the throes of a physical and psychological trauma.” During her ordeal, her rapist told her “not to worry because he had done the same service to other young Christian girls” (Dec, 2010).
 
3.      Lubna, a 12-year-old Christian girl was kidnapped, gang-raped, and murdered by a group of Muslims (Oct, 2010).
 
4.      Kidnapped last Christmas Eve, a 12-year-old Christian girl known as “Anna” was gang raped for eight months, forcibly converted and then “married” to her Muslim attacker.  After she escaped, instead of seeing justice done, “the Christian family is in hiding from the rapists and the police” (Oct, 2011).
 
5.      After gang-raping a 13-year-old Christian girl, a band of Muslims came to her house when all male members were away working and “mercilessly” beat her pregnant aunt causing her to lose female twins to miscarriage: “They murdered our children, they raped our daughter. We have nothing left with us,” lamented an older family member.  The police went on to accuse the 13-year-old raped girl of “committing adultery with three men” (Jun, 2012).
 
6.      A Muslim man murdered a teenage Christian girl, Amariah, during an attempted rape: he had “grabbed the girl and, under the threat of a gun, tried to drag her away. The young woman resisted, trying to escape the clutches of her attacker, when the man opened fire and killed her instantly, and later tried to conceal the corpse” (Dec, 2011).
 
7.      Muslims abducted a 14-year-old Christian girl, Mehek, at gunpoint in broad daylight from her parents’ house.  One of her abductors declared he would “purify her” by making her “Muslim and my mistress” (Aug, 2011).
 
8.      Shazia, a 12-year-old Christian girl, was enslaved, raped, and murdered by Chaudhry Naeem, a rich Muslim lawyer, who was acquitted.  His wife and son had participated in abusing the child (Nov, 2010).
 
9.      Nadia, a Christian girl who was abducted in 2001 when she was 15-years-old and forced to marry a Muslim, only recently returned to her Catholic family (Jan, 2012).
 
10.  A powerful Muslim businessman had two Christian sisters kidnapped, forced to convert to Islam, and “married” to him (May, 2011).
 
The above anecdotes represent a mere sampling of the documented atrocities committed against the children of Pakistan’s Christians, who amount for a miniscule 1.5% of the nation’s population. READ ENTIRETY (The Rape and Murder of Pakistan’s Christian Children; By Raymond Ibrahim; RaymondIbrahim.com; 11/18/12)
 
As Raymond Ibrahim said in 2012 this represents “a mere sampling of the documented atrocities committed”. Just think as of writing this blog it is now 2014. If anything atrocities against Pakistani Christians have gotten worse rather than better.
 
AND this is the life Shamim Masih faces on a daily basis in Pakistan as a Christian and an activist. Please support him!
