In 2006, seventy-seven million baby boomerspeople who worked hard all their liveswill begin to turn sixty. They have a right to expect the best of everything, but if the nursing home industry doesnt change dramatically and soon, they can only expect the worst. Today, nearly two million people are institutionalized in nursing homes, and millions more will face the possibility of one day joining the ranks of system victims.Every American has a personal, vested interest in shifting the paradigm of a struggling industry that is on the verge of collapse and that ends patients lives prematurely.

The eighth wonder is the topic of the first poem and the theme for my first poetry book. I reveal in that poem what the eighth wonder is and its value to each person on earth. I dont want it revealed until they read that first poem, and hopefully, they will use that eighth wonder to find the other wonders of the world then read the rest of The Eleventh Wonder of the World, exercising their eighth wonder. Poetry is so personal it is hard to convince readers to take the time to feel the words, not just read them. The eighth wonder of the world presents something we all possess and dont realize its value. So for this third book to resonate with the buyer/reader, a love of poetry will initially be the reason it sells. After that, it will be the value to each reader as they capitalize on the eighth wonder we all possess.

Poetry is so personal. It is hard to convince readers to take the time to feel the words, not just read them. The Eighth Wonder of the World presents something we all possess and dont realize its value. So for this fifth book, The Twelfth Wonder of the World, to resonate with the buyer/reader, a love of poetry will initially be the reason it sells. After that, it will be the value to each reader as they capitalize on the wonders we all possess. The series of Wonders of the World poems are to relate all humans on Earth to a common denominator. The mind (eight wonder) and the soul (ninth wonder) are our human metaphysical commonalties, whereas the heart (tenth wonder) and the brain (the eleventh wonder) are physical commonalities to all of us as individuals. And finally, the spirit (twelfth wonder), our infinite energy, is what each of us are metaphysically, for the infinite trip from here to there, the final wonder.

The people of the United States of America, take back their sovereignty, and reclaim their right to have a say in the policies and conduct of the government.The Author offers a third party alternative for those enterprising Americans who pay for the public sector and do not currently have fair representation or input to the system that has caused many fiscal, social, and foreign-relation problems that face this nation of 313 million citizens.It is not entitlement reform that we need, but rather, government reform. Any tax reform should eliminate taxes on adjusted taxable income and replace it with a flat 5 percent annual capital assessment on individual and corporate net worth.The new entitlements are eroding the American work ethic and need to be replaced with real, private-sector jobs that create a true return on our gross national product. The American Dream is built on work ethic. The will to work in a free market is inherited from their forefathers but sustained by each of them.While our country is on the verge of bankruptcy Congress and State Legislatures enacted over 40,000 new laws in 2010 costing $250 billion borrowed dollars we dont have plus $700 billion in stimulus, $1.2 trillion for Obama Care and turned on the Federal Reserve printing presses for another $1 trillion for enforcement, unfunded public service pensions, salary raises for themselves and the bureaucrats. To make things worse the Federal and State Governments understate their deficits by using the cash basis of accounting. For example the Federal deficit is $123 trillion after factoring in accounts payable and pension debt. These pension systems are extraordinarily diverse in design, investment policy, and governance, and they face substantial challenges as the government-sector workforce ages and governments are asked to take on new and different tasks.The new entitlements need a major overhaul. To avoid depriving enterprise of much-needed capital to create jobs, we need to reduce American workers dependency on unemployment benefits, minimum wage, workers compensation, food stamps, welfare, and Obama Care. (Obama Care will use enforcement agencies for collecting taxes, and waste depleted tax revenues treating illness not pursuing wellness).

Dr. Venice Bloodworth in her book The Key to Yourself states that an affirmation of I am happy, healthy and prosperous isnt just words, its the retraining of the subconscious to be positive, which is a principle of universal law that puts aside the negative as being a result of not following self-help universal law. Self-health is an extension of that law. Religiously, using this law will enable readers at any age to lower their biological age below their chronological age, thus, altering their lifestyle and health and assuming a higher felling of self-worth and happiness. This self-health book reinforces the need to move your thinking in a different path so the future does a mental house cleaning and a new thought conditioning called I am happy, healthy, and prosperous, affirmation enough to replace the subconscious feelings for negativity programmed into all of us by parents, media, and lifes problems and challenges. You then are what you think you are without concern for aging too fast and being too fat, too stressed, or too old. You then have attained what the author and his family have, Lifestyles of the Healthy, Happy, and Prosperous.
