"The God Talking-Point"
Before creating what's become ACRInc, and was to begin with OSCR, a household accident (tripping over the cat, who'd gotten her claws stuck of a sudden in newly plush carpet, which twisted my ankle and undid my walking balance!) had badly shattered my right ankle necessarily refixated surgically in hospital over a week for limited refunction with a pin and plate of five screws.
After a year of self-directed occupational therapy, i could once again manage stairs and drive my Blazer at least as far as town, and walk again down and up hill to my shenandoah wildgrass fields and bamboo-entranced beach. With naiive enthusiasm and honest hardwork i built up a small home-based and widely-popular commercial website business partially supported by banner ads and by clientsite web design and server-housing, and by my own ample investments and savings and credit.
The savage onslaught then of intensely-focused criminal abuse by Virginia government's Democratic Party "law enforcement" cadre took me by total surprise (twice, or thrice). It still confounds me -- but not an omnisciently just and fair and righteously wrathful God, who doesn't care (and neither do i) if those involved treasonously believe truly in divine existence despite vacuous words or specious church attendance.
"The Appalachian Region's economy, once highly dependent on mining, forestry, agriculture, chemical industries, and heavy industry, has become more diversified in recent times, and now includes manufacturing and professional service industries. Appalachia has come a long way in the past four decades: its poverty rate, 33 percent in 1965, was 18 percent in 2008. The number of high-poverty counties in the Region (those with poverty rates more than 1.5 times the U.S. average) declined from 295 in 1965 to 116 in 2000.
"But despite progress, Appalachia still does not enjoy the same economic vitality as the rest of the nation. Central Appalachia in particular still battles economic distress, with concentrated areas of high poverty, unemployment, poor health, and severe educational disparities. And recent economic data show that the Region has fared far worse in the current recession than the rest of the nation." -- ARC
