Who Were those Unknown Men, Anyway? Part 3 of 3

There have been a number of people asking “Who the heck are those unknown Presidents?”  Well, before we elected a president with popular vote – back under the Articles of Confederation, and the creation of the Constitution, the fledgling United States had a president.  The President was appointed by Congress.  Here are the last 4 of the really first presidents. John Hancock, most famous for his large signature on the Declaration of Independence, held the position of the president from 1785 to 1786. His life in politics began long before the presidency, and he even helped to fund the American … Continue reading

There have been a number of people asking “Who the heck are those unknown Presidents?”  Well, before we elected a president with popular vote – back under the Articles of Confederation, and the creation of the Constitution, the fledgling United States had a president.  The President was appointed by Congress.

Simple Answer to the Complex Problem of Today’s Football Quandary

Simple Answer to the Complex Problem of Today’s Football Quandary The brouhau churning our nation today is divisive and disruptive. There IS a simpler answer that has escaped everyone’s attention. BRING BACK A FEW MOMENTS OF PRAYER RIGHT AFTER THE ANTHEM. We lost our way when Christians were castigated and fined in the sports leagues and in every aspect of our lives for bowing their heads in prayer NOT a “religious” prayer by any one religious group but a heartfelt prayer of solidarity and belief in values and purpose. If those who attend do not want to participate, oh well. … Continue reading

National Pledge to Boycott the NFL!

  The growing acceptance by the NFL for those who dishonor our national anthem by refusing to stand in the traditional manner is creating a deep uneasiness and a heightened sense of outrage among patriotic Americans. Such disrespect for our nation has got to stop. Please sign the pledge to boycott the NFL, for as long as it takes to restore order on the field and for players to honor the national anthem in the traditional manner. Since the success of the national boycott depends on how many people stop watching the NFL games, I urge you to take the … Continue reading

Governor of Puerto Rico Praised Trump for Hurricane Response Even as Hillary Attempted To Criticize

Governor of Puerto Rico Praised Trump for Hurricane Response Even as Hillary Tweeted What He Should Do As has been the case for quite a while — Hillary playing the blame game card is always a day late and a dollar short.” My advice to you: Let the President handle HIS business Hillary–and you mind your own. Goodness knows it appears you have more on your plate now than you can possibly handle. From what we are hearing, you and Bill did no such service in your rush to Haiti to supposedly help, well except to line your pocketbooks, so … Continue reading

Quote of the Day

“All men are born free and equal, and have certain natural, essential, and unalienable rights; among which may be reckoned the right of enjoying and defending their lives and liberties; that of acquiring, possessing, and protecting property; in fine, that of seeking and obtaining their safety and happiness…” Nathaniel Gorham EIGHTH President of the United States.  He wrote the original lines above, which morphed into “We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal……” I can not locate any quote by Arthur St. Clair of Pennsylvania – the NINTH President, or Cyrus Griffin, the TENTH … Continue reading

Quote of the Day

I am a friend to righteous government, to a government founded upon the principles of reason and justice; but I glory in publicly avowing my eternal enmity to tyranny. Is the present system, which the British administration have adopted for the government of the colonies, a righteous government – or is it tyranny? John Hancock SEVENTH President of the United States And this question can still be asked today, not of the British, but of the current American government, at least as encouraged by the last administration – and carrying on until the swamp is drained.

Why I Am A Proud Culturist

Neal Boortz coined the term “culturist” back during his radio days in Atlanta, in response to critics who labelled him a raaaaaacist.  And the moment I heard his reasoning, I realized that I, too, am a proud culturist. The raging debate about “white privilege” and “white supremacy” conveniently overlooks certain historical facts.  Chief among these is the fact that not all cultures are equal when it comes to protecting the rights of the individual. Not all cultures provide an environment wherein the individual can voluntarily strive to realize as much of that potential as he or she wishes.  Not all … Continue reading

When One Principal Stands Up For Her School And Students

I just came across this from March 2017. I greatly admire this principal for her determination to save her school and promote better results from her students. The sign of a caring, informed, and truly good educator is the depth and lengths they attempt to go to in order to help their charges grow and develop. It is telling in this instance that HALF of her student body skipped school more than 35 times by mid-year when she took over as principal. Good education just like good business management requires a strong leader to set ground rules and maintain momentum. … Continue reading
