    Historic Factors In The Valuation Of The American Dollar. I have been asked to place a value of a friend's Confederate dollar, a Feb. 18, 1864 one dollar bill. In the process I made a disturbing discovery. We have all been taught that America won the Civil War and the Confederacy lost - but did they really? What is victory? What is defeat? As we are now in a financial crisis of considerable magnitude, there is the tendency to look at history for clues. Perhaps one such clue to present monetary issues may be found in re-examining past and present...

    I am of the opinion that the following is one of the most succinct summations of the Social Security debacle available, and is an excellent education tool.

    THAT TURKEY IS MARXIST. EvergladesInstitute.org ^ | November 23, 2005 | Jan Michael Jacobson Posted on Wednesday, November 23, 2005 8:46:38 PM by GladesGuru THAT TURKEY IS MARXIST. The first Thanksgiving was not at all what most Americans have been taught. The Indians didn’t make the difference between starvation and plenty for the Pilgrims in what they called ‘Ye Plimouth Colonie’. What really made the critical difference between that first year, which Governor Bradford called “The Starving Winter”, and the year of the first Thanksgiving? This critical factor lies at the heart of the American experiment in government. Yet virtually...
  • Opus of an old time Democrat.

    Email to Glades Guru from educator/friend/recovering Democrat
    Opus of an old time Democrat. The following email came from a friend who is unarguably one of the most talented secondary school teachers in America in the last few decades. He is from an old Tennessee mountain family, where all were (and nearly all still are) Democrats. My friend’s devotion to the Founding Documents would make him a welcome dinner companion (assuming a time machine were available) at most any table in most any of the homes of those who signed those documents. Yeah, he is a history teacher, as you surely guessed by now. This email is an...

    McCain's comments came after a town hall event at a golf course in Le Mars, a town in northwest Iowa. Speaking to an audience of about 150 people, McCain spoke about Iraq, government spending and healthcare, among other topics, but immigration talk dominated the discussion. McCain went back and forth with one audience member, who said he was upset that the immigration proposal before Congress is not tough enough. The man told McCain that there were already adequate laws on the books — they just aren't being enforced. McCain said that was a misnomer. ``The old rules are not workable...

    The Sun Times newspaper. ^ | January 4, 2007 | Lori Rackel
    The president of the school's faculty association said 65 teachers and 190 other SIU employees are being scolded by state investigators for their performance on an online ethics training course required for all state workers. The problem wasn't their scores on the 10-question, multiple choice test. It was that they spent too little time reviewing the subject matter before taking the quiz, according to the Illinois Executive Inspector General's Office. "It's not humanly possible" that they read and comprehended the information in such a short amount of time, said Deputy Inspector General Gilbert Jimenez. He added that "we're wondering" if...

    An off-duty Palm Beach County sheriff's sergeant initially told police he shot a 21-year-old man for stealing his badge and nearly running him over. But an investigation into the 2 a.m. encounter concluded the two men were in a dispute over $40 because Ira Joe Stuckey did not complete the sex act he was paid to perform on the sergeant. On April 21, Stuckey, 6-foot-2, 230 pounds and wearing a wig, ended up with a bullet wound in his left arm. On Friday, Sgt. James Seigfreid, 48, ended up in jail. He was booked into Palm Beach County Jail on...

    THAT TURKEY IS MARXIST. The first Thanksgiving was not at all what most Americans have been taught.

What really made the critical difference between that first year, which Governor Bradford called “The Starving Winter”, and the year of the first Thanksgiving? This critical factor lies at the heart of the American experiment in government. Yet virtually none of the present American population knows about the real reason behind the first Thanksgiving.

    Harsher punishment for crimes needed By KEVIN CONNOR, TORONTO SUN The rash of murders on Toronto streets this summer shows that Ottawa's gun registry program does nothing to keep neighbourhoods safe, industry experts said yesterday. "How can paperwork solve anything. It just puts responsible gun owners who abide by the law through the hoops," said Frank Hiemstra, manager of Shooters Choice gun shop in Waterloo. "No gun law is going to stop the murders. There is a law that says you can't kill someone. Criminals don't follow the law. If you took every gun off the street, these criminals would...

    Because I wrote about the panther problem, and numerous articles appeared as a result, the Agencies got together with an animal rights group and caused a compliant judge and prosecutor to investigate me. The charge - conspiracy to commit animal cruelty. If that charge sounds like something out of Alice In Wonderland to you, you are right. I'll get to the legal circus, after I bring you up to date on the activities of the PantherPersons here in the Swamp of Socialism, and the event that triggered the whole thing. My neighbor, down Dill Road, is retired, and has Parkinson's...
