Next you had skull & Bones GW Bush vs Free mason Al Gore . Then you had Skull and bones Bush vs skull & bones Kerry. Do you all get it now?

Collection of quotes about success and failure : “Success is stumbling from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm.” ― Winston S. Churchill “The person interested in success has to learn to view failure as a healthy, inevitable part of the process of getting to the top."- Dr. Joyce Brothers “A goal without a plan is just a wish.” - Antoine de Saint-Exupéry “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.”- Benjamin Franklin “It is not a daily increase, but a daily decrease. Hack away at the inessentials.”- Bruce Lee “What is not started today is never finished tomorrow.”- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe “Tomorrow is often the busiest day of the week” Spanish Proverb quotes "Opportunities do not come with their values stamped upon them."- Maltbie Babcock "You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself."- Jim Rohn “When you stop blaming others for where you are in life, that is when you can ...

My professor told us that Benjamin Franklin once said" the only way 3 people can keep a secret is if 2 of the people are dead"
president of Legitimus Automotives turns his chair around, facing a copy of the Metamorphosis of Narcissus hanging on the wall behind a row of filing cabs. He moves the painting that hides an immured safe. He founds 309 600 American dollars in piles of hundreds inside the small vault. Ulysses Hercules starts laughing audibly. He is convinced that Benjamin Franklin just winked at him. Suddenly euphoric, he decides to give a 5000 dollars gift to Costa, thinking that a generous bonus will reinforce the Greek's fidelity and respect for him. Awarding a grant is a very unusual gesture for an avaricious man like Ulysses Hercules. That makes him realize that the medicine he took from his wife is much more powerful than ordinary analgesics. He now feels completely doped up; still able to be effective, but definitely intoxicated. Happy and smiling, he puts his clothes back, places two thousand dollars in the left pocket of his pants, two thousand more in his right one and six hundred bucks in his wallet. He loads a ...

Someone sent this to me a long long timeago. I'd like to share it with you: It's the history of a one dollar bill. On the rear of the One Dollar bill, you will see two circles. Together, they comprise the Great Seal of the United States. The First Continental Congress requested that Benjamin Franklin and a group of men come up with Seal. It took those men four years to accomplish this task and another two years to get it approved. If you look at the left-hand circle, you will see a Pyramid. Notice the face is lighted, and the western side is dark. This country was just beginning.. We had not begun to explore the west or decided what we could do for Western Civilization. The Pyramid is uncapped, again signifying that we were not even close to being finished. Inside the Capstone you have the all-seeing eye, an ancient symbol for divinity. It was Franklin 's belief that one man couldn't do it alone, but a group of men, with the help of God, could do anything. 'IN GOD WE TRUST' is on this currency. The Lat .. ...

The United States Constitution was influenced by the concepts and the principles contained in the Iroquois Indian Confederacy form of governance which was founded in indigenous American history. Several different areas must be discussed in order to substantiate this premise that the Native Americans that arrived on the North American continent around 12,000 years ago did indeed influence the very basis of the United States governmental system which is written in the form of the United States Constitution. One of the first concepts which must be explored is the tradition of the Iroquois League, since the basis of the thesis is that the League tradition preceded and influenced the thinking of the Founding Fathers. The next topics must include a discussion of opinions and supporting details that the Iroquoian Confederacy method of governance did influence the development of the U.S. Constitution and specifically how key contributors to the writing of the Constitution, including Benjamin Franklin and Thomas J ...

will feature, this Sunday, famous scientists who were born during the month of January. Benjamin Franklin 17 Jan 1706; died 17 Apr 1790 at age 84. American printer and publisher, author, inventor and scientist, and diplomat. He become widely known in European scientific circles for his reports of electrical experiments and theories. He invented the lightning rod and a type of stove, still being manufactured, to give more warmth than open fireplaces. The use of bifocal eyeglasses was also his idea. Grasping the fact that by united effort a community may have amenities which only the wealthy few can get for themselves, he helped establish institutions people now take for granted: a fire company (1736), a library (1731), an insurance company (1752), an academy (1751), and a hospital (1751). In some cases these foundations were the first of their kind in North America.

Look at people who discovered a cause that they gave their lives over to, people such as Benjamin Franklin, Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., Mother Teresa, Albert Einstein and Nelson Mandela. They connected with some kind of a crusade that they decided their lives would represent. This engaged their hearts. This made them emotionally charged up about what they were doing. And once we can develop some emotional engagement around a pursuit, rather than simply an intellectual engagement, the excitement flows and the energy explodes.

How have we strayed so far from our roots.. We were warned about what we are doing.. Thomas Jefferson would turn in his grave to see what we did in 1913 with the federal reserve act.. Benjamin Franklin would do the same to see the government funding the people with "freebies" instead of enjoying the profits if thrift and true value.. George Washington would turn to see our opression of christianity in our nation.. the first "White House" whas used for a church.. mass was given.. and god was praised.. weve lost everything that makes us great.. We've sold out to what is easiest.. And for that i am ashamed..
Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning.� Benjamin Franklin

DIDACHE Solemnity of the Epiphany of the Lord PLAN FOR SUCCESS “In Bethlehem in Judea, thus it has been written through the prophet.” – Matthew 2:5 On this fourth day of 2015, let me ask you this question: How are you faring with your New Year’s resolutions? Have you been successful so far or have you already ditched them? I read a Time magazine article saying that only eight percent actually succeed in carrying out their resolutions. It also said that making a resolve to change is detrimental because when we fail, we’re prone to frustration and fall even deeper into the vice we want to be free of. We set ourselves up for failure when we make resolutions that aren’t practical. We decide to quit smoking or start a diet or exercise regimen without a workable plan to achieve this. The Bible teaches us to plan carefully so we can succeed in what we have decided. Jesus said, “Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. Won’t you first sit down and estimate the cost to see if you have enough mone ...

I love American history! My favorite historical figure is Ben Franklin. I also love ancient symbols and their meaning. I would enjoy being a mason, just to learn all their knowledge about symbols, they don't allow women to be a mason. Oh, they would say, women can join the Eastern Star. Sorry, I don't want to be in a social club, just learning a few symbols and rituals, isn't enough. They wouldn;t want me anyway. lol I've learned enough on my own, that the Da Vinci Code didn't teach me anything new, and I didn't believe the made up things anyway. So my point! It really makes me mad when some evil heathen takes a great symbol and uses it in their evil ways. For example, the swastika. It was a symbol of eternal life, of good luck, prosperity, the dynamic waterwheel, always turning and giving life to communities. Well Hitler took the symbol for life and reversed it, made it symbol for death & hate, his Nazi party. The last few years, another party has taken a symbol I love and changed it.

CareerFusion Absolutely! Benjamin Franklin, one of the Founding Fathers of America said it perfectly. ”Without Continual Growth & Progress such words as Improvement, Achievement & Success have no meaning”. When I returned from my fourth year at CareerFusion held every January in Daytona Beach, I immediately felt new meaning to those words. I felt Empowered like never before! CareerFusion was the brainchild of Beth Thompson, a mentor, a forceful, well spoken, well respected brilliant dental hygienist excelling in the ever-changing dynamics of the Business of Dentistry and Dental Hygiene. Beth started the concept of CareerFusion first named CareerFlow by getting together over a weekend with a few dental hygienists from throughout the country. Beth soon realized that there was a desire and need for us to learn more about the industry, technology and to also have a safe source of camaraderie amongst the profession. Fast forward to 2014 and CareerFusion has moved from a pajama party sleepover weekend in P ...

Brilliant men telling it like it is. "A free people ought to be armed." - George Washington "Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety." - Benjamin Franklin "No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms." - Thomas Jefferson "I prefer dangerous freedom over peaceful slavery." - Thomas Jefferson "The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man." - Thomas Jefferson (quoting 18th century criminologist Cesare Beccaria) "A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played ...
Page Eleven BANK OF AMERICA International bankers saw that usury-free script would keep America free of their influence, so, by 1781, banker-backed, Alexander Hamilton succeeded in starting the Bank of America. After a few years of "bank money". the prosperity of "Colonial Script" was gone. Benjamin Franklin said, "Conditions were so reversed that the era of prosperity had ended and a depression set in, to such an extent that the streets of the Colonies were filled with the unemployed!" Bank money was like our FED money. It had debt and usury attached. By 1790, Hamilton and his bankers had created a privately, owned, central bank and converted the public debt (usury-free), into usury-bearing bonds, payable to the bankers. When Hamilton's bank charter expired in 1811, the international bankers started the War of 1812. By 1816, another privately-owned U.S. bank was started with $35 million in assets - only $7 million of that was owned by the government. This bank lasted for 20 years. U.S. history shows that ...

How great it is to be home for Christmas this year. Absolutely wonderful. I know I certainly didn't always appreciate it, but after being forced to spend it away last year (as well as Thanksgiving), it's really become special. Spending my final Christmas while living at home, with my family, who I don't always appreciate either. I hope its a good one, it has been so far. The whole second half of the year really stepped it up compared to the first half, and it only looks to get better. 2014 really was my year (if you haven't already heard that wonderful epiphany that I had a while back please inquire) and 2015 will be too, as well as all of them to come (even if they don't add up to G, I'll find some other way to connect it). Here's to spending the rest of my Christmases (is that how you would spell that?) with people I actually want to spend it with, and wearing funny costumes and posting pictures of it online. Because, if I'm not having fun, its probably about a year ago and time machines are now real, i ...

BEER ~ FAMOUS QUOTES Sometimes, after playing golf, I reflect on all the beer I drink, I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and I think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. I think, "It is better to drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver." Babe Ruth "I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day." Winston Churchill "When I read about the evils of drinking after golfing I gave up reading." Paul Horning "24 hours in a day, 24 beers in a case. Coincidence? I think not." H. L. Mencken "When we drink, we get drunk. When we get drunk, we fall asleep. When we fall asleep, we commit no sin. When we commit no sin, we go to heaven. So, let's all get drunk and go to heaven!" George Bernard Shaw "Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy." Benjamin Fra ...

So I will end my little tale with a warning from Benjamin Franklin, who by the way was a good friend of Santa's, just like me: "Those who trade Liberty for Security, deserve neither." So with a wave of my hand and the roar of my engine, I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a great, long, winter's nap, until the morrow; you already have the moral. As always, all was in jest and not written to offend, only to make to laugh and perhaps, think.
Many people take this week off from work and school to spend time with their families. The holidays are a good time to strengthen our connections and renew relationships. So turn off the cell phones, computers and televisions and take time to focus on your family. Here are a few ideas you can try to spend time with your family. - Family game night. Spend at least one night during the holidays with the TV off and the family huddled together to play a favorite game. You may pay cards, bingo or any other family favorite. Consider continuing this practice throughout the year and designate at least one night per week as family game night. - Play outdoors together. You can ride bikes, play ball, or go for a hike. It'll give the entire family some fresh air, exercise and great fun. - Spend some one-on-one time with each child if you have more than one. Spending time alone provides time to bond with the child and helps them gain a sense of belonging and feeling of importance. It also provides an opportunity for t ...

Today in history: 1745: Benjamin Rush is born On this day in 1745, patriot, physician and social reformer Benjamin Rush is born in Byberry Township, Pennsylvania. The two great "Benjamins" of the revolutionary generation, Benjamin Franklin and Benjamin Rush, shared status as Renaissance men and Philadelphians. Despite Franklin's greater fame, Dr. Rush was actually the better-educated, more widely traveled and more broadly experienced of the two. Benjamin Franklin's mystique comes from his status as a self-made man without a formal education. By contrast, Benjamin Rush was educated at the best universities on both sides of the Atlantic. After his father died when he was just six years old, his mother put him in the care of his uncle, Reverend Samuel Finley, who later became president of the College of New Jersey, now Princeton University. Rush received his Bachelor of Arts from the College in 1760 with the intention of becoming a lawyer. Instead, he began studying medicine in Philadelphia before traveling ...

Today in history: 1732: Poor Richard's Almanack is published On this day in 1732, Benjamin Franklin of Philadelphia first published Poor Richard's Almanack. The book, filled with proverbs preaching industry and prudence, was published continuously for 25 years and became one of the most popular publications in colonial America, selling an average of 10,000 copies a year. Franklin was born in Boston in 1706 and was apprenticed to his brother, a printer, at age 12. In 1729, Franklin became the official printer of currency for the colony of Pennsylvania. He began publishing Poor Richard's, as well as the Pennsylvania Gazette, one of the colonies' first and best newspapers. By 1748, Franklin had become more interested in inventions and science than publishing. He spent time in London representing Pennsylvania in its dispute with England and later spent time in France. He returned to America in March 1775, with war on the horizon. He served on the Second Continental Congress and helped draft the Declaration of ...
Harvard educated First Lady Michelle Obama reminded attendees of a naturalization ceremony Wednesday that the Founding Fathers weren't born in America. The ceremony for 50 new U.S. citizens was held at the National Archives in Washington, D.C. She said during her speech, referring to the Declaration of Independence, "It's amazing that just a few feet from here where I'm standing are the signatures of the 56 Founders who put their names on a Declaration that changed the course of history, and like the 50 of you, none of them were born American - they became American." Excuse me? Did she actually mean that those who signed the Declaration of Independence and participated in the drafting of the Constitution were not born in America? Benjamin Franklin was born in Pennsylvania and Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and James Madison were born in Virginia. John Adams was born in Massachusetts. Only eight of the 56 were not born in America. Surely she knew this. But, then again, maybe not. After all, she is a ...
Benjamin Franklin founded the Pennsylvania Hospital in 1751, America's first hospital.
France recognized American independence. (1777) France was the first European nation to formally recognize America as an independent nation rather than a British colony. France's early recognition — some two years after the American Revolutionary war started and about five years before it ended — may largely be due to Benjamin Franklin's diplomatic visits to Paris during the war. The Dutch Republic was the second nation to recognize American independence; it did so in 1782. w Geek. Like I said before, France is the mother of this country. Not England.

To be a good American, we should read the works of the Founding Fathers, and discern their intentions through their words. “I have lived, sir, a long time, and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth-that God governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, is it probable that an empire can rise and fall without His aid?” “History will also afford frequent opportunities of showing the necessity of a public religion and the excellency of the Christian religion above all others, ancient or modern.” Benjamin Franklin "You do well to learn our arts and ways of life, and above all, the religion of Jesus Christ. These will make you a greater and happier people than you are. Congress will do everything they can to assist you in this wise intention."

10 Reasons The U.S. Is No Longer The Land Of The Free Assassination of U.S. citizens President Obama has claimed, as President George W. Bush did before him, the right to order the killing of any citizen considered a terrorist or an abettor of terrorism. Last year, he approved the killing of U.S. citizen Anwar al-Awlaqi and another citizen under this claimed inherent authority. Last month, administration officials affirmed that power, stating that the president can order the assassination of any citizen whom he considers allied with terrorists. (Nations such as Nigeria, Iran and Syria have been routinely criticized for extrajudicial killings of enemies of the state.) Indefinite detention Under the law signed last month, terrorism suspects are to be held by the military; the president also has the authority to indefinitely detain citizens accused of terrorism. While Sen. Carl Levin insisted the bill followed existing law “whatever the law is,” the Senate specifically rejected an amendment that would ex ...

On this day in 1775, the Second Continental Congress, meeting in Philadelphia, establishes a Committee of Secret Correspondence. The committee's goal was to provide European nations with a Patriot interpretation of events in Britain's North American colonies, in the hope of soliciting aid for the American war effort. The committee, consisting of Benjamin Franklin, Benjamin Harrison, John Dickinson, John Hay and Robert Morris, instructed Silas Deane to meet with French Foreign Minister Charles Gravier, Count de Vergennes, to stress America's need for military stores and assure the French that the colonies were moving toward "total separation" from Great Britain. Covert French aid began filtering into the colonies soon after the outbreak of hostilities in 1775. Deane, a Connecticut delegate to the Continental Congress, left for France on the secret mission on March 3, 1776.
Fun Facts about the First Thanksgiving The Plymouth Pilgrims were the first to celebrate the Thanksgiving. The Pilgrims sailed across the Atlantic Ocean to reach North America. They sailed on the ship, which was known by the name of 'Mayflower'. They celebrated the first Thanksgiving Day at Plymouth, Massachusetts. The Wampanoag Indians were the people who taught the Pilgrims how to cultivate the land. The Pilgrim leader, Governor William Bradford, had organized the first Thanksgiving feast in 1621. He invited the neighboring Wampanoag Indians to the feast. The first Thanksgiving celebration lasted three days. Mashed potatoes, pumpkin pies, popcorn, milk, corn on the cob, and cranberries were not foods present on the first Thanksgiving's feast table. Lobster, rabbit, chicken, fish, squashes, beans, chestnuts, hickory nuts, onions, leeks, dried fruits, maple syrup and honey, radishes, cabbage, carrots, eggs, and goat cheese are thought to have made up the first Thanksgiving feast. The pilgrims didn't use f ...

Remains of ten bodies, six of which were children, were found under the home of Benjamin Franklin. This evidence might imply that Benjamin Franklin practiced ritual human sacrifice. This is not surprising considering Franklin’s known Masonic and Hellfire Club associations. WORKMEN have dug up the remains of ten bodies hidden beneath the former London home of Benjamin Franklin, the founding father of American independence. The remains of four adults and six children were discovered during the £1.9 million restoration of Franklin’s home at 36 Craven Street, close to Trafalgar Square. Researchers believe that there could be more bodies buried beneath the basement kitchens. Initial estimates are that the bones are about 200 years old and were buried at the time Franklin was living in the house, which was his home from 1757 to 1762, and from 1764 to 1775. Most of the bones show signs of having been dissected, sawn or cut. One skull has been drilled with several holes. Paul Knapman, the Westminster Coroner ...

The deliberations of the Constitutional Convention of 1787 were held in strict secrecy. Consequently, anxious citizens gathered outside Independence Hall when the proceedings ended in order to learn what had been produced behind closed doors. The answer was provided immediately. A Mrs. Powel of Philadelphia asked Benjamin Franklin, "Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?" With no hesitation whatsoever, Franklin responded, "A republic, if you can keep it."

AMERICAN PHILOSOPHY The term “American Philosophy,” perhaps surprisingly, has been somewhat vague. While it has tended to primarily include philosophical work done by Americans within the geographical confines of the United States, this has not been exclusively the case. For example, Alfred North Whitehead came to the United States relatively late in life. On the other hand, George Santayana spent much of his life outside of the United States. Until only recently, the term was used to refer to philosophers of European descent. Another focus for defining, or at least characterizing, American Philosophy has been on the types of philosophical concerns and problems addressed. While American philosophers have worked on traditional areas of philosophy, such as metaphysics, epistemology, and axiology, this is not unique to American Philosophy. Many scholars have highlighted American philosophers’ focus on the interconnections of theory and practice, on experience and community, though these, too, are not u ...

Native American's contributed more to the building of this nation than people know. In regard's to the Constitution one source, hiding in plain sight, so to speak, is frequently overlooked. This is the contribution of native Americans, particularly the Iroquois, to the mix. The Iroquois constitution, called the Great Law of Peace, or Gayanashagowa, contains many echoes of our Constitution, and in a number of respects, is more advanced in thought than the Constitution that resulted from the Convention of 1787. This is not something I made up. If you read the original documents from the time, from people like Benjamin Franklin and George Washington, you will easily see that they deeply acknowledged their debt to the Iroquois and other native Americans. It's no accident that the protestors at the Boston Tea Party chose to disguise themselves as Indians. They did this out of respect for the democratic and free nature of Indian society - something they were trying to establish in the face of what they co ...

Benjamin Franklin On MONEY “[T]he Riches of a Country are to be valued by the Quantity of Labour its Inhabitants are able to purchase, and not by the Quantity of Silver and Gold they possess.” In 1729, a young Benjamin Franklin published a “Modest Enquiry” to advocate a paper currency to the Pennsylvania assembly. Franklin knew that “hard money” backed by precious metals restricted commerce, as its supply remained static while the needs and powers of labor advanced. His advocacy of a well-regulated system of public credit would influence Alexander Hamilton, the founder of America’s first National Bank. George Washington Against FREE TRADE “The promotion of domestic manufacturers will, in my conception, be among the first consequences which may naturally be expected to flow from an energetic government.” America’s first protective tariff, passed in 1792, charged an average 15.1% duty on imported manufactures. This not only funded 95% of the new government, it gave America’s infant ind ...

Twenty-six years ago, having nothing better to do at the time, I tried my hand at schoolteaching. The license I hold certifies that I am an instructor of English language and English literature, but that isn't what I do at all. I don't teach English, I teach school -- and I win awards doing it. Teaching means different things in different places, but seven lessons are universally taught from Harlem to Hollywood Hills. They constitute a national curriculum you pay for in more ways than you can imagine, so you might as well know what it is.

“"Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn." - Benjamin Franklin”
Napoleon Hill's Thought for the Day Opportunity never sneaks up on those who straddle the fence of indecision. Successful people are decisive people. When opportunities come their way, they evaluate them carefully, make a decision, and take appropriate action. They know that indecision wastes time that could be spent on more productive tasks. They also avoid unnecessary risks by implementing their decisions gradually. They don’t attempt to make every decision at the beginning. Each action is contingent upon the success of the one that preceded it. Benjamin Franklin, one of America’s wisest men, is said to have used a simple method to make difficult decisions. He drew a line down the center of a sheet of paper, and on one side he listed the “pros” of the decision; on the other, he listed the “cons.” In addition to simplifying the decision-making process, the list also served as a graphic illustration of the advantages and disadvantages of any decision, regardless of its complexity. The impact o ...

The fact is, I hear and see Christians saying really stupid things. It’s embarrassing. Here’s the best of the best. Or the worst of the worst. 1.Evolution is just a theory. By that reasoning, belief in a Biblical God is also a theory — at least to non-believers. 2.If you don’t believe in God, you don’t know right from wrong. Ridiculous. Every day, we hear stories about pastors and other religious figures in a scandal of some sort. Infidelity, theft, child molestation, etc…Their belief in God didn’t help them be more moral, did it? 3.You can’t prove God doesn’t exist. Can we prove that he does? Most non-believers say that the burden of proof is on us who are theists. 4.Anything said while speaking in tongues. I grew up in an Assembly of God church. Speaking in tongues was a common practice. The way it works is that one person supposedly gets taken over by the Holy Spirit and begins to chant gibberish. Then after a few minutes, another church member “translates” the message from God.

Which country was the first with health insurance? Germany was the first European country to establish a system for health insurance for its workers in 1888. How much apple pie was served at Yale? By the eighteenth century, apple pie had become so popular a dessert in America that Yale College served it every night at supper, and did so for more than a century. Can insects live without their heads? Some insects, after their head is severed, may live for as much as a year. They react automatically to light, temperature, humidity, chemicals, and other stimuli. Doesn't it hurt the lobster to prepare them that way? Not really, since they actually don't have a central nervous system, which in effect, is the brain. So there is no pain reflex such as humans have. If lobsters felt pain that acutely, they would hardly amputate or spontaneously drop their claws, both of which have been observed by researchers. Who was America's first political cartoonist?

GUN OF THE DAY – Thomas Matson Doglock Musket Rarely do you get the chance to know exactly how old a musket is. But our GOTD makes it very easy. This Thomas Matson doglock musket clocks in at .80 caliber and could have fired a one-ounce round ball or an equal weight of smaller shot. The doglock was one of the first safety systems and utilized a pivoting catch to hold the hammer in the fully cocked position. But to the real point – how old is it? The buttstock’s base reveals the carved date of 1732. What else was going on in that year? Benjamin Franklin started publishing “Poor Richard’s Alamanack” and George Washington was born. Just 281 years ago. Neat guns are everywhere in the NRA National Firearms Museum at Fairfax, VA.
