    "Each of us must choose which course of action we should take: education, conventional political action, or even peaceful civil disobedience to bring about necessary changes. But let it not be said that we did nothing." - Ron Paul

    "Paul said "the wave of the future" is a coalition of anti-authoritarian progressive Democrats and libertarian Republicans in Congress opposed to domestic surveillance, opposed to starting new wars and in favor of ending the so-called War on Drugs."

    You are still a little kid, then, Danno. I remember the assassination of John Kennedy and watched that funeral atop the desk of a second grader. That teacher had a TV with a coat hanger for an antenna, and my class was invited down to watch.

    And yes, I remember the death of Gerald Ford. I remember when he became president.

    First Ladies might not be such a big deal now, but my mother was a particular fan of FDR, and thus of Eleanor. Then we had Mamie Eisenhower who was a real character and Jackie who was the fashion icon. Plus her kids were about the same age as my brother and me. Lady Bird Johnson and her beautification protjects. Pat Nixon who was almost invisible. Betty Ford who did great work with addiction and recovery.

    It’s just interesting how we hold elections and do this transfer of power every 4 or 8 years, and life goes on. We have had so many leaders compared to other nations.

    Thanks you all for replying to the thread. I’ve been sick for the better part of two weeks. It makes me a little bit more reflective than usual.

    I turned on the Houston memorial to see the Oak Ridge Boys. A little too much Reba after.

    St. Martin’s has a pretty awesome choir. They just finished an arrangement of the Battle Hymn of the Republic that has been around forever. Every high school and college choir has sun this. Say what you want about the son itself, but it has lots of vocal parts and a big sound at the end, lots of fun to hear and sing.

    Bryan, this is not flu, and I was not vaccinated.

    Oyarde, thank you. I’m doing my best.

    I remember watching Kennedy getting shot and the endless coverage..
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    I was 4 months old when JFK was killed.
    * Enforce Border Security – America should be guarding her own borders and enforcing her own laws instead of policing the world and implementing UN mandates.

    * No Amnesty - The Obama Administration’s endorsement of so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, will only encourage more law-breaking.

    * Abolish the Welfare State – Taxpayers cannot continue to pay the high costs to sustain this powerful incentive for illegal immigration. As Milton Friedman famously said, you can’t have open borders and a welfare state.

    * End Birthright Citizenship – As long as illegal immigrants know their children born here will be granted U.S. citizenship, we’ll never be able to control our immigration problem.

    Old enough to be annoyed that my shows weren't on.

    My pets dying has bothered me more than any of them.
