Another "Giant" using his talents of wealth and power for ill will soon be cast down:
Jesus Christ received power over all, he employed it, and that presently, to the good of all; by which example he seemed to speak unto us, as well as to his disciples, and say: You that are giants of the earth,and have received great power, strength, health, wealth, wisdom, learning, or any other Talent, from the hands of God, use it not to the wrong, and oppression of the weaker sort, nor any other wickedness or ill example of others, as those giants aforesaid did; you know what happened unto the Princes of the Madianites as aforesaid; I am the same I was then, I say no more but this, Potent men, if they abuse their potency, shall be potently punished, when time is. ~ Fr Thomas Hill 1634

The fountain of youth? Warren Buffett, 85, credits fudge, peanut brittle and Coke for his health and happiness - and claims he get a fourth of his daily calories from the sugary soda
Warren Buffett believes Coke, fudge and peanut brittle have kept him happy for 85 years - and has no intention of switching to a healthier diet. The billionaire investor bragged about his junk food habit during the annual shareholders' meeting of his company, Berkshire Hathaway, on Saturday. He told reporters in Omaha, Nebraska, that he got about a quarter of his calories from Coke every day. Buffett, who is currently worth $68.5 billion, was responding to a question about his company's nine per cent stake in Coca-Cola, which makes it the biggest shareholder.New York Times reporter Andrew Sorkin asked Buffett why Berkshire Hathaway shareholders should be proud to own Coke. Sorkin asked the CEO, who has claimed to drink five cans of Coke a day in the past, not to mention his own soda habit to answer his question, Fortune reported. But Buffett mentioned his own diet regardless, saying he's probably happier because he's consumed so much Coke, fudge and peanut brittle in his life. Daily Mail Read More>>>>>
