    Actually,it goes back even farther, to Ancient Babylonia. I have a book which has translations of cuneiform tablets on many different topics.....from personal letters to business stuff,to laws. Still and all, those “youths” were not in their 20s-30s, which many Millennials of today are.

    I know group of Millennials ( at the outer reaches of that cadre, of which 99.8% of whom are hard workers,expect NOTHING to just be handed to them, work very hard, are stable, adults, who were brought up right.
    I blame parents form NOT doing their jobs, for those who aren’t like that.

    Most states already have sales taxes;some more onerous than others!

    Since ILLEGALS will just go on welfare and/or get paid “under the counter”, raising the minimum wage is dumb. And why wouldn’t they move to where the minimum wage/the welfare payments are higher; which are BLUE states?

    I don’t think you really though this through.

    No, the Masons has NEVER been "largely a mutual aid society". They were ALWAYS a fraternal, charitable society.

    Both the Masons and Shriners ( not all Masons are Shriners, but ALL Shriners must be Masons first ) have always run FREE hospitals, with Lodges donating all manner of very expensive medical equipment ( until the Polio vaccine, many of NYC hospitals, of ALL kinds, got most of their iron lungs, as donations, from Masons ), childrens' camps, and help, through scholarships, with going to college.

    OTOH, mutual aid societies,such as THE PETOFI and THE YOUNG PETOFI SOCIETY ( an Hungarian mutual aid AND social society ), which IS what this article is talking about.

    Such societies would have not only dues, but in the case of the Petofi Society, raised money through having balls, picnics, and other such spiffy social gatherings. They provided death benefits to widows and children, unemployment benefits to those who lost their jobs, bought out large sections of graveyards, so as to offer the membership and their families cheaper fees for grave sites, donate to several hospitals, so that their members had better rooms for less of a fee to no fee, and their ladies' auxilliaries would bring Thanksgiving and Christmas baskets to the poor, as well as teaching new immigrants what they needed to know to make it in America.

    Even with the government taking on more and more of such "safety net" things, some of these societies lasted into the mid 1960s.

    Some people just refuse to see the truth and hang onto the very old, moldy lies. And when you consider the fact that it goes back hundreds of years now, been refuted and proved to be a pack of lies, it's amazing that some here still cling, tenaciously to those impugnations!

    I truly hope that all of them/members of their immediate someday need the services of Shriners' hospitals! Maybe after an up close and personal experience, they'll have their eyes opened and a change of heart.

    There's no help for the HOLIER THAN THOU lunatics, but when someone claims that Masons and Jews are behind all the evil in the world/are going to do thus and so/whatever other crazy thing........I jump in and post facts. It's what needs to be done.

    This is part of the second unwanted FRmail letters this poster has written to me and now posted. It wasn't enough for him to debate me on this thread, oh no; he also had to write me two letters, berate me and impugn me, and show off his condescending, insulting handiwork in public.

    And FWIW, he wrote to me, I did NOT "contact" him privately, first; though I do admit to replying, civilly, to his first letter.

    Okay,let me put this all in perspective for you.

    The Boy Scouts is a world wide secular organization.

    It has its own "rites" and rituals.

    They take boys of every race and religion; even those with NO religion, as it began as a way to train boys to be men,in a quasi military type of environment. This has changed somewhat, over the century plus it has been in existence, but I do hope that you're following the jist of this.

    Now you're besmirching Methodists, Episcopalians, and GOD only knows who else? Anyone and everyone with whom you do not share 100% views on what is GODLY/Christian?

    Then WHY are you here on this site, allowing yourself to be contaminated by hundreds, if not thousands of posters who don't share all of your views? And yes, there's a Presbyterian minister here, who is also a Mason!

    The Masons are a secular, fraternal, and charitable organization.

    The Knights of Columbus was formed to give Catholics a fraternal and charitable organization, in lieu of the Masons,because even though the church had forbidden the flock from being Masons, many were still keeping their membership/joining it. I'd give you the exact,factual history of these things; however, I doubt that you would read it, care, and I don't want to waste any more time nor bandwidth on you......you who not only post to me out in the open, but also feel the need to write me private letters about this topic,impugning me and Uriah Heapishly being arrogant and 'umble, all at the same time.

    Wouldn't you be happier posting to FR's religion section?

    It's not a "spiritual system";no matter what you claim.

    I didn't post any "fluff", but I DID post unassailable facts.

    We get it...........you hate and fear the Masons and I do remember you from other ignorant, sophistic, puerile anti-Masonic posts in the past. But for you to believe THIS nonsensical MUSLIM drivel, is just mind boggling!

    There is NOT,by-the-by, "almost solid small-o orthodox Christian unity in repudiating that spiritual system"! Yes, Roman Catholicism now forbids their membership from being Masons ( and started their own version;THE KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS, as a distraction/alternative ) after being talked into it. And it's a long, involved story, but if you want those facts, I will give them to you.

    Methodists, Episcopalians, and Presbyterians aren't against the Masons. If you want proof of that,I'll supply it.

    But YOU have done nothing but post unadulterated codswallop,so you haven't a leg to stand on!

    I hate to burst your bubble,but it was Orthodox Jews who came up with the Kabbalah stuff during the Middle Ages and Christian/Catholics did have esoteric dabblings at that time as well and later on.

    Even today, many sects in Judaism, have their Rabbis learn about/study the Kabbalah.

    European Alchemists were Christians and besides being scientists, of a sort, they were also delving into different pathways.

    Jesus expelled "demons", which is something some might see as kinda "weird", today. Turning water into wine? Raising the dead? And you're claiming that the NT doesn't have esoteric stuff in it it ? What about nuns and lay people having "visions" ? Opus Dei anyone ?

    Secret and/or fraternal/charitable societies have been around from time immemorial. That many have died out/are dieing out now, is mostly due to modern technology and the fact that face to face communication is on the wane. We "socialize" in private now....through the net, Blackberries, etc.!

    Linking Masons and Jews ( not to mention bankers ) to terrible things, goes back to the French Revolution, when a crazy French aristo Roman Catholic Abbe,who had fled to England, wrote a terrible tract about how it was the Jews and Masons who fomented the French Revolution. That POS garbage was expanded upon, more than a century later, when the original THE PROTOCOLS OF THE ELDERS OF ZION was written and made it's way to many different nations. It was this bilge that Hitler and Communists expanded and built on. And WHY Henry Ford, who was a Mason, but also a staunch anti-Semite put in the glove compartment of ALL of his cars,for a long time, until he was stopped, I do not understand.

    What has ALWAYS scared those who have been "scared" of/hate Masons, is the fact that they accept ALL good men......no matter their race or religion, as long as they believe in GOD!

    Freemasonry is NOT and never has been a "religion" !

    It is a "bad" thing, for many reasons.

    First of all, should Cain get the nomination, he has very little experience running a campaign and what little he has, is bad.

    Being an "outsider" is all well and good...........except that means that he has no idea who to pick for a variety of positions;first for his campaign and secondly, should he become president, for all of the positions he will have to fill.

    He is a business man. He has never had to deal with anything even remotely like Congress;let alone foreign dignitaries, heads of state, lobbyists, etc.!

    Advisers to any and every politician are important. So HOW and WHOM does he chose and why?

    From what he has said during the debates, we know that he doesn't like Perry. He supported Romney in the last go round. Does he like Newt? Probably and he also probably knows him better than the others.

    Cain has NO record at all. So it's just his words now and since he has backtracked on some things, thus far, we can't just take him at his word, since there have been some flip flops, talking first and then changing some things later, and so on.

    Is he ready to go up against Obama and the full thrust of the MSM/DEM machine? NO WAY and sadly, he still hasn't shown me that he has done any work to correct that problem.

    He is trying to start at the top, which in times past, was frowned upon and ridiculed.

    And before you try to throw Washington, Jackson, and/or Ike at me, those generals had dealings with Congress ( The Continental Congress for Washington ) prior to running for president.

    There's more, but these really are things to mull over.

    Both the Dems and the GOPers did everything in their power to get Ike to not only run for president, but to do so for their party. Once Ike decided to go it as a GOPer, the full force of the party and pols stepped in to help him.Do you honestly believe that the GOP will do that for Cain and/or that he'll accept the help?

    I've read that he likes to do it all on his own. Perhaps that's true, perhaps it isn't; I don't know and I bet that nobody else here does either.

    I was a Palin supporter. She decided to not run. Now, I am looking for someone to vote for and nobody is given me any reasons to switch my support.
