Visa Americana

Here are some inspiring quotes which were inscribed in the pages of my new U.S. Passport book:

"Whatever America hopes to bring to pass in the world must first come to pass in the heart of America."  --Dwight D. Eisenhower

"The cause of freedom is not the cause of a race or sect, a party or a class-- it is the cause of humankind, the very birthright of humanity."  -- Anna Julia Cooper

I'll Pass.....

I don't "do" deification of anyone... I don't care WHO they are!!!

Claims to be Russian Orthodox [Christian],
but seems to worship at altar of self


This "cat", Herod Agrippa, shows what can happen when someone gives the impression they're taking the place of God.  Acts 12 talks about how he sat on his throne and spoke to his people.  The Jewish historian Josephus records that he wore a shiny silver cloak that threw of sunlight, increasing the impression of deity. The people cried out that Herod spoke as a "god and not a man."  Herod didn't bother to stop them;  he let them go on thinking he was divine. Herod immediately got some sort of nasty illness that the Bible describes as being eaten by worms.  Josephus says he did 5 days later.

I'd just rather not....

Welsh Wisdom

"Living well is the best revenge."

"One good mother is worth a hundred schoolmasters."

"He that is not handsome at 20, not strong at 30, nor rich at 40, nor wise at 50, will never be handsome, strong, rich or wise."

      ---George Herbert, Welsh; Anglican Priest (1593-1633)

Food for Thought

Italians have "antipasto" and they have "pesto."  But they don't seem to have "anti-pesto."  I wonder if they're overrun?!?!     --Marie Byars

Confuse a White Supremecist: learn German & speak it properly.  (And read Tacitus's account of the pre-civilized Germans... I'd like to see them wrap their minds around tribal, pre-Christian Germanic times!)
