TODAY DEC. 7, IS PEARL HARBOR DAY!!!
I wonder how many residents and citizens of this great Nation know what that is. Sad to think that there won’t be many that will pause on this day to remember.
I was under ten at that time, but I remember distinctly President Roosevelt’s voice as he made the announcement of the unprovoked attack on our soil by the Japanese nation; and I remember the words and tone of my Mother and Father as they reacted. I didn’t know at that time, of course, just exactly what it all meant, but I knew it was bad.
Whether you were in this World or not, you should have read and heard about it in your History classes. Sadly I am aware that many of you won’t. Not too long ago I was quite surprised of how many did not even know the name of our first President.
I blame this on the Education Department, our open borders, and the requirements for citizenship, or lack there-of!
IT’S THAT WONDERFUL TIME OF YEAR AGAIN!!
It's that time of year when all the requests for donations come in. I wish I could give to all of them. But it is of course an impossibility. Either way I will not give to those that send their request as "NOTICE PAYMENT DUE", or a "PAYMENT OVERDUE", or even the one that says "DID YOU FORGET". A despicable use of fraudulent words.
Then of course we have the repeat requests that come quarterly.
This brings to mind my recent comments about Capitalism. We are all aware that our system of Capitalism is to encourage Entrepreneur-ships; but, everyone being Human, of course we are never satisfied until we build something bigger and better.
We must, therefore, discipline ourselves to show restraint. I do not suggest that no-one reaches for the clouds, but merely do not do any unsavory actions to get there. Lies, fraud, thievery, or misguidance should never be considered to improve your status. Earn what you attain, share your good fortune when possible, and try to help those less fortunate!
HEADLINE OF THE WEEK!!! From THE DAILY CONSERVATIVE.
BREAKING: SUPREME COURT SHOCKER – HE’S DEAD
LEE HALL, ON DEATH ROW FOR YEARS FOR BEING CONVICTED OF KILLING HIS THEN GIRLFRIEND BY LIGHTING HER CAR ON FIRE IN 1991 WAS EXECUTED THIS WEEK.
Are the Media “ning-nuts” serious about their work? This is just a tip of the iceberg in relation to what they consider “breaking headline news” as opposed to other stories. They must take a large portion of the blame for dividing our Country.
And further it is time to stop the acceptance of “ANONYMOUS” as a reputable testimonial “witness” as evidence in our courts. The lack of trust in the Media leads me to consider that ANONYMOUS is used just to get a story started, and no-one has to prove where it came from. Kinda leaves us wide open doesn’t it?
When are we, as an intelligent Society, going to realize the damage this latest rage has caused to our well-being.
We are like little kids passing notes in study hall and the Library. It would be great if used for convenience, i.e. passing important information, sharing good news, warnings and such; but it has become the “local gossip column”, and the vehicle to exchange words that we dare not say in person.
We are “washing our dirty laundry in public”! It is one thing to ‘speak and clear your mind’, and yet another to ‘clean out your gut’! (vulgar?? yes!! but I cannot think of a more direct way to say I am of the opinion that Social Media promotes paranoia and bullying). It is a pathway for those who have to hide behind a shield to speak their mind, or remain anonymous.
And the cell phone???? That to me is like “the bottle” to an infant. Parents think by having the connection they are constantly watching over their kids. In my opinion the cell phone and all its technology is like having a tracking chip under your skin!
OUR LEGISLATIVE REPRESENTATIVES
Now there is something to laugh about. Can we not dock them their pay for insubordination? Or maybe take away their “happy hour” stop at the end of the day? Maybe we should send them to bed without their dinner. Oh no, come to think of it, that’s where they are most of the time anyway. So what happens now? We are footing the bill for their immature childish antics, and nothing is getting done.
All we do is complain. Not good enough folks; and elections are too far apart. Maybe Hong Kong and Iran and Venezuela have the right idea ~~~~ Public protests certainly get attention.
But they also tend to become violent, and that is not the American way. Perhaps smaller groups in strategic places would do the trick. We have to do something!!!
GOD BLESS and enjoy your holidays – whatever the Religion. (respect mine and I will respect yours).
