Loss of sleep can create some serious consequential effects on a person's health and even a noticeable change in personality. This is especially evident when a person starts losing precious hours of sleep regularly. Much of the time, the source of the problem is not an aliment but can be traced to a bad bed, or more specifically a bad mattress. If that is the case in your bedroom, then the solution is, go get a good mattress. Organic latex mattresses are highly recommended by satisfied customers. They have become quite popular nowadays because they are natural and one of the current innovative mattresses in the market.
A natural latex mattress is generally created by using at least 2 layers of all natural latex, covered in organic cotton with organic wool batting, which is a natural fire-retardant. Havea Brasiliensis is the scientific name of the rubber tree where latex comes from. The sap of these trees, which is the main ingredient of natural latex mattresses, are collected and processed and manufactured with holes and cores inside to produce the softness of the mattress.
This method of organic manufacturing provides soft and gentle pressure points for your body and in addition are resistant to molds and dust mites. They are also anti-microbial and hypoallergenic.
Organic latex mattresses also provide the most important thing in regards to your health--they are natural. They not made with synthetic materials which give out chemical odors that could be detrimental to your heath over time.
Natural, organic latex mattresses are somewhat harder to find than the ones mocking them that are synthetic latex. But with research on the internet you will be able to find reputable dealers of organic natural latex mattresses. Remember that the natural mattresses will be more expensive than the synthetic copies, but when your health is at stake, the price difference becomes less important. This is especially true when you have children or a mother in pregnancy. A good place to start your search for quality organic mattresses is http://www.nestorganics.com

The IRS has been ridiculed, feared and despised by virtually everyone for over a half century of its existence and for good reason; the code is illogical, inconsistent and incomprehensible to practically everyone including our own Secretary of the Treasury, Tim Geithner.
Geithner testified to the Senate confirmation hearings, that he used TurboTax to prepare his own return and that the tax errors are his own responsibility. The problem with TurboTax seems to stem from self employment issues of the tax code. The Washington Post quoted a tax expert who said that TurboTax has not been programmed to handle self-employment taxes when the user identifies himself as being employed.
Over nine of Obama’s top appointees had tax problems ranging from speaking fees, self employment issues and illegal house employees. But the problem for Obama and the IRS is becoming much bigger.
For one, is there even a law that requires taxpayers to file and pay taxes. It appears that there is no such law. Sure, the IRS as volumes of codes and regulations, but is there a law that requires US citizens to pay taxes on their income? No.
Recently the government has lost critical cases on tax law with Whitey Harrell and Tom Cryer winning their right to not file or pay taxes at all. Further, former IRS agents Joe Banister and Sherry Peel Jackson resigned after not being able to find a law that requires citizens to pay taxes.
Most of the tax controversies arise over the fact that the US government is lying to its citizens about the war in Iraq and Afghanistan and organized torture and illegal detaining of so called terrorists. Currently over 54% of all taxes paid by US citizens are going to the war, military efforts and mostly to corporations that are benefiting from the war by creating ridiculously expensive tools, contractors, and equipment for the military.
These government lies result in a “Taxation without Representation” issue as even our corrupt lawmakers are lied to about the reasons to go to war and the cover-up of torture techniques used in secret and non-secret prison facilities around the world. No reasonable American citizen or their representatives would have voted to use tax dollars to buy water boards and professional torturers to create false confessions from detainees in secret prisons.
There is a remedy. Don’t pay taxes this year. If enough people refuse to pay for the illegal programs by our Federal Government, these programs will fail. Tax dollars should be used for the infrastructure of our highways, education initiatives, science and space explorations and other programs that are beyond the reach of individuals and state governments.

About GB Warehouse:
ustomers are the most important people in any business. That's the lesson Gary Houser learned when he began his shoe career working for 'International Shoe Corporation' while going to college in Charlotte, NC. He worked part time in stock and sales. He soon worked his way up to assistant manager.
Eventually, he was offered the manager position at 'Phillip Shoes' in the Charlotte Town Mall - Charlotte, NC. Gary was relocated several times to manage stores: Once to Asheville, NC and then to Charleston, WV. After paying his dues, he was transferred back to Charlotte, NC as district manager of International Shoe Company.
An opportunity came about in 1973 where Gary and a few partners could buy into a 3 store lease operation. The department store was called Bon Marche, located in Asheville, NC. After having success in those three locations, Gary decided to venture out on his own.
The first 'Houser Shoes' opened in Gastonia, NC in 1976. Houser Shoes is a 11 store operation, being one of the southeast’s largest independent retailers, and is still owned and operated by Gary Houser.
In 2000, Gary and his daughter, Beth, opened "GB Shoe Warehouse" - one of the southeast's largest shoe stores. This 35,000 square foot concept store, consists of all brand names at prices up to 75% off regular department store prices. Gary and Beth offer a huge selection all under one roof.
Currently, there are approximately 150 people employed with Houser Shoes. Houser is a small company that believes in making our people feel special.
