    Someone I work with had occasion to be in one of the large Newark, NJ, high schools some years ago. He said they had signs around the building that read "STRIVE FOR 65" !

  • Taking down Confederate flag is not enough

    My comment there has been "pending" for more than half an hour while a dozen or more, more recent comments are just there. So I post it here:
    Sally, Honey, you offend me. I'm a Yankee who has never lived south of Long Island. (That's NY State.) I've been seeing the so-called Confederate Flag for 60+ years now. I never once thought of the things you are NOW thinking of. It's all in YOUR RACIST head. It's a symbol of the South. And you HATE the SOUTH, don't you? Well I don't. You see only slavery. I see honor and independence. You, and people like you, always focus on the WORST of the things you HATE; and then completely IGNORE negative things on people and ideas you support. And maybe that's why I'm growing to LOVE that flag; because I know that enemies of Jefferson, Madison, et al. HATE it.

    I can vote for Bob McRomney or the communist.

    I am given a similar choice every two years. Last year I finally voted for the communist. He didn't really have a chance, but at least he had more of a chance than any of the third party candidates. When you vote for a third party candidate it's only one vote against the RINO. When you vote for the designated communist, it's two votes against the RINO.

    And what could be the worst thing that would happen if you helped to elect the communist? Would he/she really do more damage than the RINO? The good news would be that if your district is like mine, the communist would only be there for two years and might be replaced by someone who understands why the previous Republican was voted out of office after ten consecutive terms.

    As for Levin and all the Levin lovers out there, the great Constitutional scholar refuses to even discuss what he thinks "natural-born citizen" means. He certainly never had any sort of discussion about authenticity of the Obama proffered birth certificates when I used to listen. Instead of picking a target, isolating it, and killing it, like his supposed political opponents, he allows himself to be distracted by a different affront to our Republic every few days.

    The protestors in the demonstration will be demanding that the Ministry of Education fully fund the Christian schools, just like other educational networks

    This sort of implies that all other educational networks are fully funded by the government. I don't believe that such is the case. Reform and Conservative rabbis here in the US regularly whine that their associated schools in Israel do not get government funding. Only Orthodox Jewish institutions are funded by the government.

    Albert must have either July or Aug to know that Bernard doesn't know right off the bat, which he would if the birthday were either May 19 (the only 19) or June 18 (the only 18).

    It cannot be the 14th because Bernard would still have to choose between July 14 and August 14. So Bernard knows it is either July 16, if he was told 16, and similarly he would know it was August 15 or August 16 if he was told 15 or 16.

    But Albert still wouldn't know if he were told August, so he must have been told July. And among the three possibilities that Bernard might know only one is in July; July 16.

    I guess you just have difficulty with the English language.

    No. He wasn't on the train which left Harrisburg, because he abandoned it the night before ("at half past ten or eleven o'clock"). That "special train" was the one that was thought might be attacked.

    Mr. Lincoln left the train Thursday night. Mrs. Lincoln left Harrisburg on Friday morning and arrived in Baltimore midday Friday. She " she felt anxious concerning the fate of her husband," because he wouldn't arrive in Washington until Saturday morning. He was NOT in Washington when Mrs. Lincoln left Harrisburg.

    I guess you also don't think "Honest Abe" stood up Mary Todd on their first appointed wedding date either. Edgar Lee Masters writes in Lincoln, The Man:

    The wedding was finally fixed to take place on January 1, 1841, at the Edwards mansion, and great preparations were made for the event. The rooms were decorated, the cakes baked. By the time the hour arrived Mary Todd was dressed in her bridal gown and veil, with flowers in her hair, waiting for Lincoln. But he did not come. An hour slipped by, and messengers were sent forth into the town to find him. They returned with word that he could not be found. Finally Mary Todd gave up and went weeping to her room. The guests departed. The lights in the mansion were blown out, and all was in darkness.
    They got married on November 4, 1842.

    What a swell guy!

    A "local paper" would be one published in Baltimore. The NYT had their correspondent on the train with Lincoln. They were supportive of and trusted by Lincoln. If the Tribune reported on this incident (which you said never happened!) I am not aware of it.

    Here's the report from the NYT. It's a bit at odds with your characterization and also with the text at your link which cites the report I reproduce below.

    Start reading from "From Our Special Correspondent" in the left column. Be sure not to skip over:

    The three plans, by one of which the conspirators expected to prevent the safe conveyance of Mr. Lincoln to Washington were these: 1) At some point this side of the Maryland, the train conveying the party was to be thrown from the track and precipitated down an embankment. ... 2) In case it was deemed best to allow the first plan to go by default, it was determined, by means of an infernal machine, to blow up the car in which Mr. Lincoln was to ride. ... 3) The favorite, and in all probability the only feasible plan was to surround the carriage in which Mr. Lincoln would ride from depot to depot in the City of Baltimore ...

    Mrs. Lincoln did not seem in the best of spirits, partially because she did not wholly approve of the course taken, of which, indeed, she was not entirely cognisant, and partially because she felt anxious concerning the fate of her husband.

    Mrs. Lincoln and her family reached the Baltimore Depot showed plainly what would have happened had Mr. Lincoln been of the party. ... They shouted -- "Trot him out," "Let's have him," "Come out, old Abe," We'll give you hell," You bloody Black Republicans," -- and other equally polite but more profane ejaculations. Some rude fellows entered the private apartment in which Mrs. Lincoln was sitting ... After a half an hour's experience of this sort of thing, Mrs. Lincoln and her son were taken to a carriage, which they entered without attracting much attention, and were driven to the house of the President of the road.

    "Differentiation" is complete BS.

    The idea of differentiation is that things with greater density will be subjected to greater gravitational attraction. Leaving aside that you could leave a uranium ball the size of the Queen Mary in Central Park and thousands or zillions of years from now, whatever was beneath the uranium ball would still be beneath the uranium ball, there is no gravitational attraction for anything at the center of the earth. (The center of the earth is essentially surrounded by a uniform mass field.) So if differentiation had any validity the heavy/dense stuff would work its way to a tennis ball like shell something like a third (I'm guessing. I didn't do the math.) of the way down from the surface toward the center.

    You people DISGUST me!

    Let me say at the outset that I have no connection to Penn State, save having attended one football game there back in 2002. I initially thought Sandusky was a bad guy from all the media reports, but I didn't see how Paterno did anything wrong.

    I began to smell a rat when Louis Freeh was brought in to "investigate." This is the same guy Bill Clinton brought in to run the FBI after he fired the previous Director the day before Vince Foster was murdered. Freeh "investigated" the Foster murder the same way he investigated Ruby Ridge, Waco, TWA 800, etc., which is to same the same way his masters wanted him to "investigate."

    But I guess you all believe what you read in the Main Stream Media, especially when "The Children" are said to be in danger. The MSM did such a great job in the case of Gerald Amirault.

    As time went on, I listened closely and heard further things that didn't ring true to me. Fortunately I wasn't the only one. John Ziegler, who like me had no connection to Penn State, took up the case. He has appeared multiple times now on the Today Show and talked to whomever would listen. Like myself, he started out thinking that Joe Paterno was being blamed for something he didn't do. But he went on to realize that THE ENTIRE CASE AGAINST SANDUSKY IS BOGUS.

    Ziegler convinced me. He has a website loaded with videos and information. Please look at it before you post on this topic again.

    I break my self-imposed silence to relate what I sent privately to Mr. IbJensen and then the nice reply he sent to me. First my message to him:
    Too bad you post this disinformation. It calls into question EVERYTHING you post.

    Kenya very definitely existed in 1961. Look for images of Kenya Postage Stamps. Some have King George VI’s picture on them. (He died in 1952, and then the Brits switched the royal image on their stamps to that of his daughter, Queen Elizabeth.)

    The name “Kapi’olani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital” appears on the birth certificates of the Nordyke twins born the same week as Obama supposedly was.

    The only reason for posting such information is to discredit honest and correct information concerning Obama’s birth certificate.

    WHY DO YOU DO THIS? Is it out of ignorance. Or are you a paid Obot?

    And here's his reply:
    I certainly wouldn’t want to discredit our illustrious president. Making him look bad is easy. There is nothing honest and correct about this insult to America.

    You’d better crawl back into your White House basement office and continue reading Conservative internet postings.

    While you’re at it you can just go to hell!

    Well what they did was wrong and UNCONSTITUTIONAL. Period..

    Maybe you would quote the part or parts of the Constitution that you feel they violated? (I'm not talking about what some fifth grade teacher told you; I'm talking about the Constitution itself and/or its ratified Amendments.)
