Quote of the Day
"Outside the Constitution we have no legal authority more than private citizens, and within it we have only so much as that instrument gives us. This broad principle limits all our functions and applies to all subjects." --President Andrew Johnson--
Please let me rant a bit!
Watching the news try to set a narrative that Asian Americans are being targeted and attacked by alt-right groups such as proud boys is just sad! I’ve watched many of these recent attacks and the attackers were non-white, likely not politically attached to any group and far from being a Trump supporter, much less have any sense of humanity to fellow humans! The media reporting is trying to stroke racial division, which will never lead to unity. I’m not sure if the attack rate is up in that category or even if recent rhetoric has risen towards their community, but tying it towards Trump and claiming Republican followers are the cause is just ridiculous. The truth is
“Our faith teaches that there is no safer reliance than upon the God of our fathers who has so singularly favored the American people in every national trial and who will not forsake us so long as we obey His commandments and walk humbly in His footsteps." -President William McKinley
The friendliness and charity of our countrymen can always be relied upon to relieve their fellow citizens in misfortune. This has been repeatedly and quite lately demonstrated.

No one really knows how old he was since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.He selflessly devoted his life to service in schools, hospitals, homes, and factories helping folks get jobs done without fanfare and foolishness. For decades, petty rules, silly laws, and frivolous lawsuits held no power over Common Sense. He was credited with cultivating such valued lessons as to know when to come in and out of the rain, why the early bird gets the worm, and that life isn’t always fa
Here are some of the highlights from today’s video:Michael Beller, PBS principal counsel: “We go for all the Republican voters and Homeland Security will take their children away…we’ll put them into the re-education camps.”Beller: “Enlightenment camps. They’re nice, they have Sesame Street characters in the classrooms, and they watch PBS all day.”Beller: “Americans are so f*cking dumb. You know, most people are dumb. It’s good to live in a place [Washington, D.C.] where people are educated and know stuff. Could you imagine if you lived in one of these other towns or cities where everybody's just stupid?”Beller: “What’s great is that COVID is spiking in all the red states right now. So that’s
