The Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “It really boils down to this: that all life is interrelated. We are all caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tired into a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one destiny, affects all indirectly.”
If you caught the Florida State vs. Oregon game yesterday then you were treated to more than just a lopsided football game. What happened after Oregon’s thumping of last year’s college football National Champs says a lot about America’s next generation of leaders.
Do you find this post ” patently offensive to prevailing standards in the adult community with respect to what is suitable material for minors?” Well consider this: if a neighbor was standing in front of his window doing exactly the same thing in from of children, would you have him arrested?
Thousands of lives were touched this past weekend by the generosity of people and in the end, what if it was all a magical plan to make sure five young children would have a Christmas beyond what they could imagine.
Marian Andersen said, “Fear is a disease that eats away at logic and makes man inhuman.” Of course, she was right. Being human is a luxury that is extremely expensive today.
Addams founded Hull House and used it as the epicenter to affect reform in the slums of Chicago. She understood the power that women held and called upon them to be civic housekeepers, empowering them to be more present in their community.
I came across this great article on a day when it was rainy, cold and my computer died. (Did I mention that traffic to work was the worst it had been all year?) I don’t know what you think about Yurts, but I’m thinking about a serious life change. What do you think?
I appreciate the support of the Commander and members of Smyrna American Legion Post 160 in hosting this rally with me. Thank you! Please mark your calendars and make plans to attend if possible. I encourage you to share this information with your family, friends and neighbors. Again, the rally will be Saturday 6 December at 12:00 Noon.
Do you know how unprecendented it is for a paid ad newspaper to hyperlink to two pages of a blogger in a content piece, especially a link as enticing as “you crusty ol’ c–.” This is worth hundreds of thousands in the PR world. For the record, just talking about someone does not require linking back. Something isn’t right. This is a big coup for Schorsch. Wonder who told Smith to do it.
The U.S. Constitution is pretty clear about our Nation’s purpose if you just read the Preamble:
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
If you follow politics, and really who does, you eventually realize that behind every wizard curtain is the same sort of person working the machine. Yes, what I’m saying is that both sides – Democrats and Republican – are exactly the same.
Discounting the value of women continues to be a serious error that plagues much of the world and I still can’t help but remember my friend Ali al-Ahemed’s insightful words, “Terrorists are not raised by free women.”
On October 1st, I received a private email from a Veteran through Me and My 1000 Girlfriend’s, That’s Who! Facebook account. He asked me for my help. His request is for an impartial investigation into employment related issues when he was a U.S. Airman at Ellsworth AFB. He’s not alone. This is my gift to him for sacrificing his life for me and my family. Please join me.
