TUESDAY TRIVIA (REAL THIS TIME): What unusual distinction is shared by all these world leaders, past and present? Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Clement Attlee, Jacques Chirac, Georges Clemenceau, Grover Cleveland, Calvin Coolidge, Tayyip Erdogan, Ehud Olmert, Matteo Renzi, Nicolas Sarcozy. Okay! Ken Jennings did an April Fools Joke with the ALL My Little Pony questions. Here is the REAL question. (Note! I fell for it! Didn't realize till the real questions just came over. THIS is the REAL question.)
Do I Know You All? Hi guys! I enjoyed writing, producing, and performing American Presidents. It was a fun challenge to research and rhyme this list of leaders (or puppets) (check out these American Presidents research blogs: It was a great intellectual discovery. Everybody is familiar with (or should be familiar with) the commonly highlighted names of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Abraham Lincoln, but very few people recognize the obscure names of James K. Polk, Franklin Pierce, and Calvin Coolidge. Admittingly, I did not even know about some of these American Presidents until I wrote the song. Oops! This is the hardest song for me to perform on the album. After Musical Poetry: Semester One was published, I started attending open-mic sessions in nightclubs in my city and state of Richmond, Virginia. For the most part, I performed my songs eloquently. But American Presidents gave me trouble the first two times that I performed it. At Addis Ethiopian Restaurant, I messed up the song. After I ...
Calvin Coolidge was the worst president ever. He did NOTHING and was the ultimate precedence of the Great Depression.
Calvin Coolidge (1924-1928) used to buzz in his bodyguards and hide under his oval office desk as they frantically searched for him.

Persistence "Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent." -Calvin Coolidge "Energy and persistence conquer all things." -Benjamin Franklin "As long as we are persistence in our pursuit of our deepest destiny, we will continue to grow. We cannot choose the day or time when we will fully bloom. It happens in its own time." -Denis Waitley "Success is almost totally dependent upon drive and persistence. The extra energy required to make another effort or try another approach is the secret of winning." -Denis Waitley "Never let your persistence and passion turn into stubbornness and ignorance." -Anthony J.

A friend put a former Number 1 song by Stonewall Jackson up a bit ago and it reminded me of story that Stonewall used to tell. He and Red Sovine were on tour driving town to town doing shows.In between towns they were pulled over by a Bernie Fyfe[a deputy] and when asked for his name he stated it as Stonewall Jackson which the deputy recognized as a Civil War general so he thought his leg was being yanked. So he said oh sure and who is in the back Calvin Coolidge? No,that's Woodrow Wilson which was Red Sovine's given names.Woodrow Wilson Sovine.Afterr seeing a driver's license and some posters they had advertising shows they were let off with a laugh and a back slap.
T.W.'s Tuesday Tidbit: It's popular nowadays for Presidents to own dogs, but presidential pets used to be far more interesting. Jefferson had bear cubs, JQ Adams had an alligator, Buchanan owned an elephant and Teddy Roosevelt & Calvin Coolidge basically owned zoos with collections that included badgers, a coyote, a lion, a hyena, a zebra, a bear, an antelope, a wallaby, a pygmy hippo and some lion cubs, just to name a few. Some of these animals were even seen wandering around the White House during their owners presidencies.

Democrats, the party of raising tax rates. When was the last time Democrats lowered tax rates? Here is the answer. Recalling the Days When Democrats Cut Taxes Hurrah for the 50th anniversary of the tax cut championed by JFK. By Lawrence Kudlow and Brian Domitrovic* Fifty years ago last week, on Feb. 26, 1964, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed into law the sweeping tax cuts that had been championed by his predecessor, John F. Kennedy. The law brought the top marginal income-tax rate down to 70% from 91% and the bottom marginal rate down to 14% from 20%. The 22 rates in between also were cut. The tax legislation of 1964 was one of three major across-the-board income-tax cuts in the 20th century. The others took place in the 1920s, during the Warren Harding and Calvin Coolidge administrations, and in 1981 and 1986 during the Ronald Reagan administration. After the Tax Reform Act of 1986, the top marginal rate was all of 28%. Today it is 39.6%. .
"Now when Chuck Hagel was nominated to be Secretary of Defense I strongly objected based on his record as a Senator and some of his comments about our allies in the Middle East that absolutely scared the living daylights out of me. My fears they were not unfounded as this week Hagel proudly announced his proposal to further gut the military readiness of our nation by drastic troop reductions and cuts to our military families with housing, food, and family health care. For the past 100 years Presidents and our nation's top warriors have warned of putting our guard down. Both Democrat and Republican presidents from Calvin Coolidge, to Franklin Roosevelt, to Harry Truman, to Eisenhower, to Reagan reminded us that in a dangerous world readiness to fight is the foundation of our freedom. The best military minds in our nation's history from MacArthur, to Omar Bradley, to David Petraeus warned of lowing ourselves into this stupid stupor of thinking that the world would be safer and more peaceful if we just holst ...
every time I see a Calvin Coolidge quote I think of Floyd the Barber from The Andy Griffith Show “Calvin Coolidge said that…”

All of the most recent Presidents in the last 100 years post slavery where not just racist they hated black, latino and asian people it is well known and well documented. Calvin Coolidge racist and KKK Member, Woodrow Wilson racist who screened Birth of a Nation in the Whitehouse and called it a great movie. Lyndon B. Johnson developed the welfare system to counter act the civil rights movement a known racist. Teddy Roosevelt a confederate sympathizer, leading the charge for Empire of subjugating Caribbean and Latin American countries. Franklin D.

It seems JFK may have gotten inspiration for one of his most iconic speeches from a speech given by a Republican Vice President to veterans decades prior: "Your glory lies in what you have given and may give to your country not in what your country has or may given to you." --Calvin Coolidge (source: Coolidge, by Amity Shlaes, pg. 234)

On Presidents Day, why do we always see ads that feature George Washington or Abraham Lincoln, singing the blues for a car dealer or selling mattresses? Why not Herbert Hoover, William McKinley or "Silent" Calvin Coolidge? Or at least Teddy Roosevelt or Ulysses S. Grant whose faces may be more familiar? Not to mention any president since Truman.

In "The President Who Said 'No,'" author and columnist Amity Shlaes will explore the life and political career of Calvin Coolidge, the thirtieth president of the United States.
William Henry Lewis 1868 – 1949 athlete, coach, author, lawyer, legislator, the first African-American college football player, the first to be named an All-American, the first to be appointed as an Assistant United States Attorney, the first to become a member of the American Bar Association, and the first to serve as United States Assistant Attorney General. The son of former slaves his father rose to become a respected minister. William began his college education at Virginia State at age 15 but transferred to Amherst a year later, graduating in 1891 in the same class with Calvin Coolidge. Lewis was chosen senior class orator, and he won the Hardy Prize debate and Hyde Prize exhibition in oratory. The next year he enrolled at Harvard Law School. At 5-11 and just 175 pounds, he played center on Harvard’s football team, becoming a two-time All-American and one of the best center's to ever play at Harvard. In 1893 he was elected Harvard's first African-American team captain. After graduation, his “ ...
Attention all Downton AND Calvin Coolidge fans - we know you're out there! With Downton Abbey's fourth season taking place during the "Roaring Twenties," there was bound to be some connections between Merry Ol' England and those Yanks across the pond. Tea Pot Dome Scandal anyone? This infamous incident during the Harding Administration has played a salient role in the last few episodes. (Coolidge buffs will know it was Calvin Coolidge who cleaned up the scandal after he became president.) Will Lady Grantham's brother remain unscathed from his connection to Secretary of Interior Albert Fall? Will that affect the Grantham fortune? Only time will tell!
Calvin Coolidge may be not be my all-time favorite, but man, was he a stone cold fox in his youth.
So, on this snowy president's day, where a cartoon Abe Lincoln is selling cars and Groupon is celebrating non president Alexander Hamilton, I'd like to make a little point. The president is tasked with upholding the law of this country and has sworn an oath to protect the constitution. So, in my way of thinking, we should celebrate the presidents that didn't push party or personal agendas, and instead maintained peace and prosperity, and allowed the people to live their lives as they saw fit. That rules out, but a handful of presidents that we should count as worthy of celebration. Today, I choose to honor Thomas Jefferson, Andrew Jackson, William Henry Harrison, and Calvin Coolidge.
In honor of Presidents Day, do me a favor and like GO Campaign. We're trying to get to 10,000 likes. If you won't do it for ol' Tony, do it for Chester Arthur, Grover Cleveland, or Millard Fillmore. (After you click like, write on their wall and say which President you "liked" in honor of, we'll see which historical figure gets the most mentions. I'm thinking Grover didn't do much exercise, so personally I'm rooting for someone more fit like... Calvin Coolidge?)
In honor of President’s Day . . . . If you don't have something nice to say, don't say it at all ... unless you're a president with an amazing ability to hide an insult in eloquent language. When Lincoln got mad, he didn't stoop so low as to actually call someone a 'butthead.' Instead, he said, 'The trouble with [General Joseph] Hooker is that he's got his headquarters where his hindquarters ought to be.' (Ouch!) Referring to a lawyer, Lincoln said, 'He can compress the most into the smallest ideas better than any man I have ever met.' Ulysses S. Grant got a little fresh when he said that James A. Garfield 'is not possessed of the backbone of an angleworm.' (No offense to angleworms.) When talking about Alexander Hamilton, John Adams got pretty heated ... and a little dirty. 'His ambition, his restlessness, and all his grandiose schemes come, I'm convinced, from a superabundance of secretions, which he couldn't find enough *** to absorb.' (How do you really feel, John?) Calvin Coolidge, usually kn ...
Presidents' Day is Monday and a lot of people always say things about what our more well known Presidents have done. George Washington, Abe Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson , FDR, JFK, and even Teddy Roosevelt. What about out lesser known presidents? Guys like Benjamin Harrison (Life long bachelor dude), Franklin Pierce (Raging Alcoholic), Calvin Coolidge *** , John Tyler (Rapist), and Millard Fillmore (Stupid name). What about them? I guess history is pretty selective on who it chooses to remember.
My "Mount Rushmore" of American Presidents would be: George Washington, Abe Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson and, uh... Calvin Coolidge?
Valentine's Day for groan-ups and presidential punditry Other than celebrating love, it’s also time for a Hail to the Chief or two. To celebrate President's Day, why not study the humorous things, which they said or were said about them. Remember, there is not much fun in medicine, but there is a lot of medicine in fun! •Franklin D. Roosevelt said, "Boy, do I have a deal for you!" •When asked what made him jump out of his boat and save others, JFK replied, "Somebody sank my darn boat!" •Ulysses S. Grant: In 1860, Grant gave philanthropist Horace Norton a cigar. He decided not to smoke it and keep it as a memento of their meeting. On his death, the cigar was passed on to his son and then again to his son. At a reunion in 1932, the son was giving a speech and took out the cigar, lit it in tribute to his Granddad the president and it went bang. It exploded. Seventy years later, the joke was on Grant. •Calvin Coolidge was a person of a few words. Most of the time he answered questions in two words. ...
Need to get back to work but I am loving the time that I am getting to read. Did you know that the richest man ever was Mansa Musa a African Emperior. Did you know that there were at least 7 black Presidents before Obama. They were: John Hanson, Thomas Jefferson,Andrew Jackson, Abraham Lincoln,Warren Harding, Calvin Coolidge & Dwight D Eisenhower
For BBC Caribbean in New York "U.S. HAD PREVIOUS BLACK PRESIDENTS” Barack Obama may not be, after all, the first black president of the United States. According to research by several US historians and a Jamaican scholar, Mr. Obama is actually the seventh black person to become president of the US. US presidents Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Andrew Jackson, Warren Harding, Calvin Coolidge and Dwight Eisenhower all had black ancestry, according to recent articles published in several US newspapers and on the Internet website Diversity Inc. According to these reports, which are based on books by late Jamaican historian J A Rogers, by African-American Leroy Vaughn and others, Thomas Jefferson’s mother was part black as was his father. Mr. Jefferson was described once by a political rival as the “son of a half breed Indian squaw and a Virginia mulatto father.” To hide his black past, the third president had all portraits of his mother, Jane, destroyed after her death, according to author Samuel S ...
My Concession For The Procession Of Imbeciles 13 Votes That’s right, folks… I lost. I will not be president of the United States. I will not be president for one and only one reason this term: –≈– “The presidential candidate with the most royal genes and chromosomes has, up to now, always won the White House…” –Burke’s Peerage researchers –≈– “[Bush] is closely related to every European Monarch both on and off the throne… Not one member of his family was working class, middle class, or even middle, middle class…” –Harold Brooks-Baker, Burke’s Peerage publishing director– it or not, Mitt Romney and George W. Bush are cousins — 10th cousins, twice removed, that is.” “Romney is actually related to six past presidents — more than any other 2012 GOP contestant. Franklin D. Roosevelt is his eighth cousin, twice removed, and both Calvin Coolidge and Herbert Hoover are his 10th cousins. Then there is his sixth cousin (four times removed) Franklin Pierce, and both 10 ...

Done some searching about depressions/recessions that has hit the USA from its inception. There are 4 major ones in my opinion although several other economic hardships dating as far back as 1819. Lets keep in mind that when a president takes office the first two years are inherited from the previous administration. First major depression in my opinion was BLACK FRIDAY September 24th 1869 when Ulysees S. Grant was president. The Great Depression hit due to stock market crash on 9-4-1929. Herbert Hoover had taken office of presidency March of that year previously held by Calvin Coolidge for four years previous. All these men were Republicans. Next major downfall was after Vietnam war when Gerald Ford, another Republican, inherited office fromk an impeached Republican president in Richard Nixon. Jimmy Carter, a Democrat inherited this major recession. Last but not least is the recent bank collapse of 2007 of the mortgage crisis. Another Republican president of George Busch. is anyone else seeing a trend her ...

THE WASHINGTON POST ON TERM LIMITS Term limits are a check against an American cult of personality By Thomas E. Cronin, Thomas E. Cronin is a professor of American institutions and leadership at Colorado College. He is co-author of “The Paradoxes of the American Presidency” and “Leadership Matters.” In 1944, Republican presidential nominee Thomas E. Dewey said that “four terms, or 16 years, is the most dangerous threat to our freedom ever proposed” and announced his support for a constitutional amendment limiting future presidents to two terms. Dewey, of course, went on to lose to Franklin Roosevelt, who died a few months into his fourth term. Some critics — including a history professor writing in The Post recently [“Let’s end term limits,” Washington Forum, Nov. 29] — contend that presidential term limits eat away at voter rights and weaken presidents in their second terms. Americans want their presidents to be decisive and effective, but they also, understandably, fear the potenti ...
Until in 1924 Daugherty was forced to resign his post as Attorney General by Harding's Presidential successor, Calvin Coolidge
"It is difficult for men in high office to avoid the malady of self-delusion. They are always surrounded by worshipers. They are constantly, and for the most part sincerely, assured of their greatness. They live in an artificial atmosphere of adulation and exaltation which sooner or later impairs their judgment. They are in grave danger of becoming careless and arrogant." (President Calvin Coolidge)
Marcus Garvey Marcus Garvey Marcus Garvey was born in St. Ann's Bay, Jamaica, on 17th August, 1887. After seven years of schooling he worked as a printer. He became an active trade unionist and in 1907 was elected Vice President of compositors' branch of the printers' union. He helped lead a printer's strike (1908-09) and after it collapsed the union disintegrated. In 1911 Garvey moved to England and briefly studied at Birbeck College where he met other blacks who were involved in the struggle to obtain independence from the British Empire. Inspired by what he heard he returned to Jamaica and established the Universal *** Improvement Association (UNIA) and published the pamphlet, The *** Race and Its Problems. Garvey was influenced by the ideas of Booker T. Washington and made plans to develop a trade school for the poor similar to the Tuskegee Institute in Alabama. Garvey arrived in the United States on 23rd March 1916 and immediately launched a year-long tour of the country. He organized the first b ...
One of the rights which the freeman has always guarded with most jealous care is that of enjoying the rewards of his own industry. Realizing that the power to tax is the power to destroy and that the power to take a certain amount of property or of income is only another way of saying that for a certain proportion of his time a citizen must work for the Government, the authority to impose a tax on the people has been most carefully guarded. Our own Constitution requires that revenue bills should originate in the House, because that body is supposed to be more representative of the people. These precautions have been taken because of the full realization that any oppression laid upon the people by excessive taxation, any disregard of their right to hold and enjoy the property which they have rightfully acquired, would be fatal to freedom. A government which lays taxes on the people not required by urgent public necessity and sound public policy is not a protector of liberty, but an instrument of tyranny. I ...

Was the USA founded on Christian principles? OUR REAL ROOTS In case we've forgotten where we came from in this country take a look at some of our founding fathers. then think about how this country grew and prospered and even won wars though attacks came from both sides. And then lets look at where we are now and what's happening to us.. Did you know that 52 of the 55 signers of The Declaration of Independence were orthodox, deeply committed Christians? The other three all believed in the Bible as the divine truth, the God of scripture, and His personal intervention. It is the same congress that formed the American Bible Society. Immediately after creating the Declaration of Independence, the Continental Congress voted to purchase and import 20,000 copies of scripture for the people of this nation. Patrick Henry, who is called the firebrand of the American Revolution, is still remembered for his words, "Give me liberty or give me death." But in current textbooks the context of these words is deleted. Here ...

Did you know that Barack Obama is not the first Black President? The Seven Black Presidents Before Barack Obama Were 1. John Hanson (a Moor) was actually the 1st President of the United States, he served from 1781 – 1782 and he was black. The new country was actually formed on March 1, 1781 with the adoption of The Articles of Confederation. This document was actually proposed on June 11, 1776, but not agreed upon by Congress until November 15, 1777. Maryland refused to sign this document until Virginia and New York ceded their western lands (Maryland was afraid that these states would gain too much power in the new government from such large amounts of land). Once the signing took place in 1781, a President was needed to run the country. John Hanson was chosen unanimously by Congress (which included George Washington). In fact, all the other potential candidates refused to run against him, as he was a major player in the revolution and an extremely influential member of Congress. As President, Hanson o ...

Feb. 8, 1910, the Boys Scouts of America was incorporated. Sir Robert Baden-Powell began the movement in England two years prior. The Boy Scouts are now the largest voluntary youth movement in the world, with membership over 25 million. In the pamphlet Scouting & Christianity, 1927, he wrote: "Scouting is nothing less than applied Christianity." The Scout Oath states: "On my honor, I will do my best: To do my duty to God and my country, and to obey the Scout Law, To help other people at all times. To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight." In 1924, President Calvin Coolidge addressed a gathering of Boy Scouts in New York: "The three fundamentals of scouthood are reverence for nature ... reverence for law ... and reverence for God.

Who was the first U.S. President to throw out a ceremonial first pitch? a) William Howard Taft b) Woodrow Wilson c) Calvin Coolidge
Tonight... where President Obama ranks from 1900-present. Worst to best. WORST Worst - Warren Harding - Did nothing. Not inspirational. Died leaving us with scandals and worst yet, Calvin Coolidge. F. Calvin Coolidge - Also did nothing. Said nothing. Let Hoover do all of the work. Created bubble leading to depression. Silent Cal was not much more effective than a potted plant. Taft - Pale imitations of the great T Rex. Hated Presidency. Remember anything great that he did? That's because he didn't do anything. Hoover - Icy, cold. Great career pre-president. Had no ability to lead in times of trouble. Failed his greatest test. At least he's from Iowa. NEAR WORST LBJ - Ok many of you know that I am obsessed with LBJ through reading Caro bio's. Classifying LBJ's hard. He did many great things (civil rights, medicare, NPR, highway beautification), but he has blood on his hands. He must take responsibility for Vietnam. It's mostly his fault. (and if had been in power in Cuban Missile Crisis, w ...
The world is full of myths – 1) FDR got us out of Hoover’s depression. 2) Reagan was the greatest president of the 20th century. 3) Clinton brought us prosperity. 4) Hillary is a moderate. 5) Obama is the first mixed race president (50% Caucasian, 43.67% Arab, 6.33% sub-Saharan Black). 6) America exploited slavery in Africa worse than other nations. Some answers: 1) The depression was greatly easing by the time Hoover left office. Government boondoggles sank us into the pit as they have now and only the WWII ended the depression. 2) Using Johnson, Nixon, Ford, and Carter or the Bushes or Obama as comparables, he sure was. His policies helped end the cold war. But if you look at the meteoric ascendency of the USA in the 1920’s, Calvin Coolidge dwarfed Reagan’s economic achievements. 3) The economy tanked under the first two years of Clinton. Only the Republican Revolution in 1994 forced Clinton’s hand and he profited from letting policies come to be that he had bitterly bought against. Bush ex .. ...
Part 3... Granted the relationships are sometimes distant 10th or 15th cousins, but in a country with hundreds of millions to choose from, this simply cannot be chance or coincidence. Gary Boyd Roberts, a genealogist at the New England Historic Genealogical Society thoroughly traced these connections in his book “Ancestors of American Presidents.” George W. Bush himself is directly related to 16 former U.S. presidents including George Washington, Millard Fillmore, Franklin Pierce, Abraham Lincoln, Ulysses Grant, Rutherford B. Hayes, James Garfield, Grover Cleveland, Teddy Roosevelt, William H. Taft, Calvin Coolidge, Herbert Hoover, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Richard Nixon, and Gerald Ford. Bush is closely related to the king of Albania and has kinship with every member of the British royal family and the House of Windsor. He is related to 20 British Dukes, the 13th cousin of Britain’s Queen Mother, and of her daughter Queen Elizabeth. He is 13th cousin once removed from Prince Charles and has direct des ...
"[T]he accumulation of wealth cannot be justified as the chief end of existence ... So long as wealth is made the means and not the end, we need not greatly fear it."-- Calvin Coolidge, January, 1925 Cited in a strong speech given at the Union League Club in New York by Congressman Kevin Brady:
"Cal’s Corral,” hosted by car dealer Calvin Coolidge "Cal" Worthington on KTLA from 1959 to 1972. The three-hour concert/advertisement ran on Sunday afternoons. Not only did it help ol’ Cal move product, the program was also a primo showcase for country and western acts in the era before “Hee-Haw,” but at a time when country folk dominated network TV via “The Beverly Hillbillies,” “Andy Griffith,” “Gomer Pyle” and “Green Acres.” (Other singers/musicians who performed for Cal included Buck Owens, Glen Campbell, Johnny Cash, Roger Miller, The West Coast Playboys and Larry Carlton. A lot of the musicians jumped from club to club in the San Gabriel Valley, the South Bay and Hollywood).
my top 10 US Presidents. Just because it's halftime and I'm waiting for the game to resume.10. John Tyler - He annexed TX. 9. Dwight Eisenhower - He ushered in prosperity after WW2. 8. James Monroe - most brilliant in foreign affairs. 7. Calvin Coolidge - he is the inspiration for small government conservatives. 6. Ronald Reagan - ended the cold war. 5. Grover Cleveland - He vetoed proposed Federal subsidies 4. William McKinley - He won a war and maintained the gold standard 3. Thomas Jefferson - he was the anti John Adams 2. Abraham Lincoln - the one with the guts in his era to end slavery. 1. George Washington - he set the standard. Ok...game's back on.
The homepage of my Internet provider mentioned that today marks the 94th anniversary of former President Theodore Roosevelt's passing. Roosevelt, who's life race ended at 60, was a great President. He became President when William McKinley was assassinated in 1901 and remained so until 1909. But I submit to you that another President, who passed away yesterday, also at age 60, at least deserved to have the 81st anniversary of his passing mentioned. That President is Calvin Coolidge, a stern New Englander, who was President from 1923 to 1929. Like Roosevelt, he became President when another President passed away, in this case Warren Harding, who died of a heart attack. Ironically, both Harding and McKinley were from Ohio... Among other things, President Coolidge was the first President to appear on a sound film. In 1924, when he campaigned for re-election and, in a sound experiment, a guy named Lee DeForest filmed him giving a speech. President Coolidge, who sounded a bit like comedian Wally Cox when he ta ...

Just spotted my old friend Amity Shlaes on C-Span talking about Calvin Coolidge. Never knew that Coolidge was a MA state senator and president of the state senate, one from Northampton no less.
Some words from Joan Chittister's "The Art of Life" on this last day of 2013 and the the 7th day of Christmas: "Christmas isn't a holiday. Christmas is a way of being alive." Calvin Coolidge (30th president of the United States) said that Christmas is not a time or a season, but a state of mind. "To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy is to have the real spirit of Christmas," he said. Merry Christmas to you all - every day of the coming year.
Barbara Walters Beats Ezra Klein in Race to Bottom: Amity Shlaes talks to Michael Schaus about the conservative legacy of Calvin Coolidge. MSNBC had a truly bizarre discussion about...
A brief note on our 30th president, JOHN Calvin Coolidge... "Coolidge served for 67 months, finishing out Harding's term after Harding died in early August 1923 and remaining until early March 1929. Under Coolidge, the federal debt fell. Under Coolidge, the top income tax rate came down by half, to 25 percent. Under Coolidge, the federal budget was always in surplus. Under Coolidge, unemployment was 5 percent or even 3 percent. Under Coolidge, Americans wired their homes for electricity and bought their first cars or household appliances on credit. Under Coolidge, the economy grew strongly, even as the federal government shrank. Under Coolidge, the rates of patent applications and patents granted increased dramatically. Under Coolidge, there came no federal antilynching law, but lynchings themselves became less frequent and Ku Klux Klan membership dropped by millions. Under Coolidge, a man from a town without a railroad station, Americans moved from the road to the air." Amity Shlaes.
NY Times: "In President Obama’s first 1,788 days in office, the Dow Jones industrial average has gained 15 percent, annualized. That’s the fourth best for an equivalent period among all American Presidents since 1900, behind Bill Clinton, a Democrat; with 19.8 percent; Franklin D. Roosevelt, a Democrat, with 19.4 percent; and Calvin Coolidge, a Republican, with 18.6 percent. What’s more, under Democrats, the market has gained 7.1 percent, annualized; under Republicans, only 3 percent." (Data from Bespoke)
Here is a photo of Parker's Fish Market. Every year, Wellington Parker packed up and sent to the President of the USA, the first salmon caught in the Penobscot River until President Clinton, I think, who sent it back. This salmon is going to Calvin Coolidge. Photo by Dan Maher.
Warren Harding was the most perfect textbook example of how NOT to be president. DON'T be elected just because you look and sound presidential, DON'T be an atrocious speech writer, DON'T bring all your corrupt friends from the Ohio political machine, DON'T appoint all of said friends to cabinet positions and let them run wild, and DON'T allow the Tea Pot Dome scandal unfold under your nose. In fact, the only thing that Warren Harding did that you SHOULD do is die of a heart attack so Calvin Coolidge can be president instead.You monster.
John Hanson, Thomas Jefferson, Andrew Jackson, Abraham Linclon, Calvin Coolidge, Warren Harding, Dwight Eisenhower, Barack Obama All black presidents Not one but 8 black presidents...guess they didn't want us to know that..
Did you know that in 1923 Warren G. Harding was President and Calvin Coolidge was VP. President Harding fell ill while returning from a trip to Alaska and died on Aug 2. Calvin Coolidge was sworn in. The Time Magazine made its debut and Rin Tin Tin becomes film's first canine star. Actors born in 1923 were Charlton Heston, Peter Lawford, James Arness, Anne Baxter, Bob Barker, Ted Knight and Rose Marie. The Whooping Cough vaccine was developed and Harry Steenbock discovered that radiating food with ultraviolet light adds vitamin D. The most important thing was my mom was born. The picture is of me reading these notes to some of the guests at the Birthday Party for my mom. Thank you everyone for this a special day for my mom.
Appropriate statement from the man, Calvin Coolidge, who succeeded Ohio's last president, Warren Harding.

I met with my surgeon this morning to discuss my surgery scheduled for December 5, after which I will be laid up for a couple of weeks or so.

Black pioneers of Colorado helped build state - Joseph H.P. Westbrook was a light-skinned black man who could pass for white. And he did. Westbrook infiltrated the Denver Ku Klux Klan in the early 1900s and alerted blacks to the groups plans. Westbrook also was a physician, drugstore owner, a civic leader 6and a delegate to the Republican National Convention that nominated Calvin Coolidge for president. Despite his many accomplishments, you wont find Westbrook in many Colorado history books. "There is a hole in our historical connections of the whole community," said Terry Nelson, volunteer services manager for the Denver Public Library. "We have tons of researchers coming to the library asking for information about African-Americans in the West. We have little information." After the Civil War, black people from the South headed west to escape oppression and racism -- and to look for gold, as many did. Pioneering blacks were trappers, miners, cattle rustlers, millionaires, fugitives, laborers, doctors an ...

Fortuitously, earlier today I ran into an old, but excellent review of one of my favorite economic histories – Amity Shlaes 's history of the Great Depression “The Forgotten Man” If you have not done so, I highly recommend reading the book. I also highly recommend C.J. Maloney's excellent, but apparently largely ignored, book review: “Amity Shlaes: The Forgotten Man” And take a look at Mr. Maloney's even more ignored essay,which is part of the same theme: “The Peculiar History of Arthurdale” (based on his book “Back to the Land: Arthurdale, FDR's New Deal, and the Costs of Economic Planning” --which is now high on my reading list). Sheldon Richman furthered my thought process by highlighting the great Joseph Stromberg's review of Amity Shlaes's most recent book “Coolidge” (which I confess I have not yet read). Mr. Stromberg's review is titled “Slightly Limited Government's Nearly Last Hurrah” Read it!: “Like the hedgehog, [Calvin Coolidge] had one trick. His was economiz ...

In all Stubby served 18 months all along the Front, fighting in 17 different battles and four major campaigns. He survived shrapnel wounds and carried messages under fire. General John J.

In 1926 Stubby died in Conroy’s arms. He was so loved that The New York Times ran an obituary 3 columns wide and half a page long. On t ...

I am 87 years of age, probably older than most of you reading this. Through the evolution of time, I have seen many changes in this Country and around the World in its many aspects and on many levels. We've experienced the good, the bad and the ugly, yet we survived and thrived.till now. I was born when Calvin Coolidge was President and survived 14 more to present. I was never politically minded or religious minded as I knew nothing about either one of them. I still don't. But what I do know however is "right from wrong". Of the 15 Presidents I grew up with, Harry S. Truman was my favorite. There was no BS about him. He came out of nowhere to become President taking FDR's place following his demise. President Truman had an enormous task on his hands. He was a plain simple down to earth person but knew how to make "command decisions" which he did and brought WWII to an end. I liked the slogan I saw on his desk, "The buck stops here". Unlike today, there wasn't a shred of greed in this man. He ...
Smoke Detector Vital for Successful Escape From House Fire Clay County Fire Rescue officials credit a working smoke detector in alerting two residents to a home fire early Monday morning. The fire, at 1621 Elsie St. in Green Cove Springs, was reported via 911 at 3:31 a.m., and apparently started as a result of a lit candle left in the living room. Two adult occupants exited the home safely after being awakened by the smoke detector. A third resident was not at home at the time of the fire. A small dog escaped out a door and was reunited with the family a short time after firefighters knocked down the fire. Units responded from Stations 20, 15, 17, 22 and St. Johns County, with firefighters arriving less than 4 minutes after the call was placed. Initial crews reported heavy fire conditions with approximately 50% of the home engulfed in flames. No firefighters were injured during the extinguishment of the blaze, which took just over 20 minutes to knock down. The home sustained approximately $75,000 in damag ...

"If the people lose control of the arteries of trade and the natural sources of mechanical power, the nationalization of all industry should soon be expected.

America Not Discovered by Columbus by Rasmus B. Anderson was published in 1874. This book helped popularize the now familiar idea that Vikings were the first Europeans in the New World. During his appearance at the Norse-American Centennial in 1925, President Calvin Coolidge gave recognition to Leif Erikson as the Discoverer of America due to research by Norwegian-American scholars such as Knut Gjerset and Ludvig Hektoen. In 1930, Wisconsin became the first U.S. state to officially adopt Leif Erikson Day as a state holiday, thanks in large part to efforts by Rasmus Anderson. A year later, the state of Minnesota followed suit. By 1956, Leif Erikson Day had been made an official observance in seven states (Wisconsin, Minnesota, South Dakota, Illinois, Colorado, Washington, and California) and one Canadian province (Saskatchewan). In 2012 the day was also made official in Las Vegas, Nevada. In 1963, the U.S. Representative from Duluth, John Blatnik, introduced a bill to observe Leif Erikson Day nati ...

Good morning! It's Wednesday the 9th of October - and today is all about staying safe. It's Fire Prevention Day! The Fire Marshals Association of North American created this holiday back in 1911 on the 40th anniversary of the great Chicago fire. In 1925, President Calvin Coolidge created National Fire Prevention Week, which starts on the Sunday of the week that includes October 9th. Today would be a great day to check those smoke detectors and make sure your home is fire-safe. "LIKE" & "SHARE" to remind your friends to prepare themselves in case of a fire. Go make it a great day, Kansas!

is ineligible to contest in 2015 – Dr. Ardo Dr. Umar Ardo, an academic, politician and a gubernatorial aspirant in Adamawa state under the platform of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, in this interview with our Correspondent in Abuja at the weekend, analyzes sundry issues pertaining President Goodluck Jonathan’s candidacy in 2015, including Supreme Court judgment, the president’s campaign promises and governing policies, precedents from the USA and, the state of the nation. He concludes that President Jonathan is ineligible to contest the 2015 presidential election even as he disagrees with those calling on the president to contest. He therefore counsels him to subordinate his personal ambition to the higher interest of the country by declining to contest the presidency in 2015 so as to set a positive precedence for Nigeria in her democratization process. Excerpts. You were opposed to the imposition of Emergency rule on your state of Adamawa by the President, describing it as unconstitutional. D ...

Today's Verse «[Wisdom] cannot be valued with the gold of Ophir, with the precious onyx, or the sapphire. The gold and the crystal cannot equal it: and the exchange of it shall not be for jewels of fine gold. No mention shall be made of coral, or of pearls: for the price of wisdom is above rubies.» Job 28:16-18 Today's Quote «Knowledge comes, but wisdom lingers. It may not be difficult to store up in the mind a vast quantity of facts, but the ability to form judgments requires the severe discipline of hard work and the tempering heat of experience and maturity.» Calvin Coolidge (1872-1933) Today's Quip - Wisdom opens the eyes both to the glories of heaven and to the hollowness of earth.
Not open since Calvin Coolidge cut the average American's tax rate from 15% to 4%, drastically cut the size and scope of federal government ending a deeper depression than the 1929 crash started in a few MONTHS not decades. But since that time neither Republican nor Democrat Party has followed his model, we've been going in "reverse liberty" and forward " big government mode" ever since.

Why, in the World Not? Come back with me to my classroom. Average American high school. Classes have finished for the day. I’m just tidying up, shuffling papers, chipping bubblegum off the desks – teacher stuff, when one of my students comes flying through door, breathless and distraught. “Somebody just told me that you’re a conservative!” Her eyes bugged out in disbelief, hoping I would deny the accusation and set her world right again. I mean, I taught honors English and modern dance. She was used to me pouring tea and reciting poetry, perfecting her plies. It was a public school. How could I be conservative?!? A couple of years later one of my students wrote her college application essay about me, and my being a conservative and how disturbing that was. I was nice, smart, well read – not at all what she had expected from a right-wing nut job. She didn’t put it that way – the essay was really quite complementary, but that’s where it came from – complete amazement. And then this week ...
Learn something every day... Historical Tidbits..by..me. National Fire Prevention Week - Why October? Well, we have to start at 9:40pm on Sunday, Oct. 8th, 1871. A months-long drought, windy conditions and wooden structures contributed to the destruction of 34 blocks of Chicago, Il., between the 8th and 10th. Numerous stories have been told of how it started, the most popular being Cathrine O'Leary's cow and a lantern; Peg Leg Sullivan and a cigar; meteor showers and finally embers from a forest fire in Wisconsin. In fact, on the 8th, several towns and hundreds of thousands of acres of wilderness burned in Michigan and Wisconsin. At any rate, O'Leary and her cow were officially pardoned from the cause in 1893, when a Chicago Tribune reporter admitted he made up the theory for better press. On Oct. 8, 1911, the 40th Anniversary of the Great Chicago Fire, the Fire Marshals Association of North America held the first Fire Prevention Day. President Calvin Coolidge proclaimed the first National Fire Prevention ...
There's been many speculations of Abraham Lincoln being a mulatto, still black. The US constitution states the "one drop rule" if anyone has a drop of black blood that person is considered to be of African descent. Yet when you pay attention to his feature he does look as if he had black in him. African people can see it in their own no matter how light the skin may appear. In history there are stories stating that his mother was also half black, yet she still passed for white. I watched the movie Hidden colors 1 & 2 and saw how they the proved this. Just look at some key things here. Why is Abe on the penny and facing the opposite way than any other president that is on a coin? Abe freed slaves??? People slavery never left. It was an "false" Emancipation Proclamation. He used that to lure the black man with a false hope of freedom. It is still going on now but is hidden through debt as economic slavery. Truth is Abe did not want to free any slaves he was caught in the middle between the north and the so ...

Fire Prevention Week 2013 The reason we have Fire Prevention Week is because on October 9, 1871, Mrs. Catherine O’Leary was milking her cow when the animal kicked over a lamp, that cause a large fire in Mrs. O’Leary’s barn which started the fiery of fires, because of high winds and a record dry fall this help lead to the Great city of Chicago fire. After this fire was finally put out (extinguished) it burnt down over 3.3 square miles of the city. In the United States, President Calvin Coolidge wrote a proclamation of Fire Prevention Week was made in 1925, It was told this week October 6-13 will always be used to teach and talk to students and adults in the community about the importance of fire safety.
What's the best way to determine how much of the $16 trillion U.S. debt is attributable to each President? The most popular way is to look at the debt level when each President took office. Sometimes it's easier to look at a graph showing the percent of the debt accumulated under each President. It's also important to compare the debt as a percent of economic output. However, these aren't the most accurate ways to measure the debt contributed by each President. Why? The President doesn't really have much control over debt accumulation during his first year. That's because the budget for that fiscal year was already set by the previous President. The new President pretty much has to live with that budget's tax rates and spending levels for the first nine months of his inaugural calendar year in office. You really can't hold him accountable for the debt incurred by the previous President's budget. In rare cases, a President can add an amendment to that budget, but must first get Congressional approval. For ...

The United States has no more reason to default on its debt after October 17 than its had to shut down access to the Nations outside Memorial sites because of the budget stalemate! Our current budget finances all the U.S.’s current obligation and Obama’s rhetoric to induce panic is unfounded! Even with the ‘shut down’ 83% of the government is working and spending but Obama has chosen to close our nation’s popular landmarks not to save money but to inflict pain on Americans in hopes they will blame The House of Representatives and he will get his way without negotiating! Bill Clinton reached across the isle in 1995 and negotiated welfare reform with Newt Gingrich and it never entered his mind to install barricades and preventing access to our outdoor memorial and be vindictive as Barack Obama has done! As to the National Debt, which is now almost 500% higher than the Treasuries total annual revenues of about 4 trillion, sufficient funds are still being collect to pay the interest on our loans ...

"The time is arriving when we can have further tax reduction, when, unless we wish to hamper the people in their right to earn a living, we must have tax reform. The method of raising revenue ought not to impede the transaction of business; it ought to encourage it. I am opposed to extremely high rates, because they produce little or no revenue, because they are bad for the country, and, finally, because they are wrong. We can not finance the country, we can not improve social conditions, through any system of injustice, even if we attempt to inflict it upon the rich." Calvin Coolidge If only our government had heeded President Coolidge's advice...
My thoughts for the day. The federal government is all about Control. It does not matter what party you belong to or support. Why would you support this giant government with control or your health care. This bogus shut down is just that. What is happening now is that Washington D.C. has way to much power. It does not matter what party wields power. When your health care gets to be controlled by the government what we see now will become normal. The current president and administration is harming Americans period. If another president and another party gets into power and does this they will be harming Americans. Obama care is a train wreck and it is starting to come unraveled. The illusion of a government taking care of people is a false hope. No society on earth has been able to take care of its people. Only the people can protect themselves. We have to stand with people who understand liberty. Our Constitution was created so that the government was created to have negative liberties placed on it to pro ...

President Reagan once said about President Calvin Coolidge: "I don’t know if this country has ever had a higher level of prosperity as it did under Coolidge. And he actually reduced the national debt, he cut taxes several times across the board. And maybe the criticism was in both cases that they weren’t activist enough. Well, maybe there’s a lesson in that. Maybe we’ve had instances of government being too active, intervening, interfering. You have here a couple of cases of men who were abiding by the rule that if it ain’t broke,don’t fix it."
Today in Baseball History -- Oct. 4 -- from Mary Landers ... 1906 -- Setting a major league mark, the Cubs win their 116th game completing the season with an astounding .763 winning percentage. 1924 -- At Griffith Stadium, Calvin Coolidge becomes the first U.S. President to attend a World Series opener. The Giants edge the hometown Senators in 12 innings, 4-3. 1925 -- For the first time in the 50-year history of the franchise, the Cubs end the season in last place. The team, managed by Bill Killefer (33-42), Rabbit Maranville (23-30), and George Gibson (12-14), compiles a 68-86 record and finishes 27.5 games behind the first-place Pirates. 1925 -- On the final day of the season at Sportman's Park, Tiger outfielder Ty Cobb and Browns first baseman George Sisler, the player-managers of their respective teams, face one another as mound opponents making it the first time in which both teams use a position player to pitch in relief in the same game, an oddity that will not occur again until 2012.

CHILD LABOR IS NOT A LEGAL AMENDMENT, NEVER RATIFIED BY ALL STATES.Child Labor Amendment Calvin Coolidge seated at desk, with congressman Israel Moore Foster, who proposed the Child Labor Amendment The Child Labor Amendment, approved by Congress in 1924, would give Congress authority to enact child labor regulations that had previously been rejected by the Supreme Court. Although only 6 states had ratified the amendment by the beginning of 1933, the total rose to 28 by the end of 1937, leaving the amendment still eight states short of the number then required. In 1941, the Supreme Court overturned its earlier rejection of federal child labor regulation in United States v. Darby Lumber Co. This decision has been described as making the Child Labor Amendment unnecessary. The amendment has been ratified by 28 states: 1.Arkansas (1924) 2.Arizona (1925) 3.California (1925) 4.Wisconsin (1925) 5.Montana (1927) 6.Colorado (1931) 7.Illinois (1933) 8.Iowa (1933) 9.Maine (1933) 10.Michigan (1933) 11.Minn ...

What Ted Cruz understands is exactly what this battle over defunding Obamacare represents. Obamacare is but the latest leftward turn that every Democratic administration since Woodrow Wilson has been engineering in a bid to dramatically remake America in the progressive image. Unfortunately, of the eight Republicans that have been elected president since Wilson’s departure in 1920 (and we leave out Warren Harding who died two years into his term), only two — Calvin Coolidge and Ronald Reagan — have had the political courage to firmly grasp the wheel and take the country forward to its original ideas of a nation based on individual liberty and freedom. All the others — Hoover, Eisenhower, Nixon, Ford and the two Bushes — took Wilson’s progressive vision and either added to it or simply refused to change course. Jack Kemp
Last night, I forced myself to watch an interview with an individual who, in my judgment, has been one of the most destructive political figures in the history of the United States. There are many reasons for his destructiveness, some of which are sympathetic. He never knew his father. His mother was frequently unavailable during his childhood because of her educational and employment needs. But in my view, no figure altered the tectonic balance between the private and the public sectors more than William Jefferson Clinton. Not William McKinley. Not Calvin Coolidge. Not anybody. We are just now beginning to see the depth of his damage. And remember: although the broadest, largely temporary extremism exists at the poles of the ideological spectrum, the deepest and most long lasting extremism exists at the center of the spectrum. It is the false quest for an automatic, self-regulating calculus of disparate variables that locks a political system into a spiral of non-innovative redundancy, and decline. The n ...

"No method of procedure has ever been devised by which liberty could be divorced from local self-government. No plan of centralization has ever been adopted which did not result in bureaucracy, tyranny, inflexibility, reaction, and decline. Of all forms of government, those administered by bureaus are about the least satisfactory to an enlightened and progressive people. Being irresponsible they become autocratic, and being autocratic they resist all development. Unless bureaucracy is constantly resisted it breaks down representative government and overwhelms democracy. It is the one element in our institutions that sets up the pretense of having authority over everybody and being responsible to nobody."Calvin Coolidge
"It is necessary to watch people in Washington all the time to keep them from unnecessary expenditure of money.

According to AP, the Congressional agenda for the coming week is immigration reform, the farm bill, and student loans. Do you notice what's missing? Cutting spending and addressing our rising national debt. Indeed, the likely legislative "solutions" to all three items will likely worsen, not improve, our debt problem. If we don't fix the rising debt problem, nothing else will matter. Thanks largely to growth and job killing policies from this Administration, we cannot count on growing our way out of debt. And unless we fix Medicare, Medicare, Obamacare, and Social Security, we won't be able to reduce our borrowing very much, either.
Fun fact - U.S. President Calvin Coolidge liked to eat breakfast while having his head rubbed with vaseline
“We are obliged to conclude that the Declaration of Independence represented the movement of a people. It was not, of course, a movement from the top. Revolutions do not come from that direction... The American Revolution represented the informed and mature convictions of a great mass of independent, liberty-loving, God-fearing people who knew their rights, and possessed the courage to dare to maintain them.” – Calvin Coolidge, born July 4, 1872

Back when a president was allowed to own up to his wealth and social standing without having to pretend to be a regular guy, presidents had insane pets. Herbert Hoover had two crocodiles. Teddy Roosevelt had a pet badger named Josiah. Benjamin Harrison had two opossums, perhaps the ugliest mid-sized North American mammal, and named them Mr. Reciprocity and Mr. Protection. Calvin Coolidge, if he tried to maintain his collection today, would be thrown in jail about twelve times over--dude had a wallaby, a duiker, a black bear, two lion cubs, a pygmy hippo, and a bobcat.

100 years ago, the existing president, Woodrow Wilson who was a horrible Progressive not a whole lot different than the one we have today, presided over huge tax increase and huge spending increases. Those actions lead our nation into the 1st, read it, the FIRST depression of 1921-22. Most people do not know about a first depression. Enter Warren G. Harding, as president who started the ball rolling to lower taxes drastically and reduce government spending drastically. Unfortunately, he died in office before his leadership could have much effect. Fortunately, his vice President Calvin Coolidge continued his leadership and got congress to lower taxation and reduce spending so drastically and effectively, that the depression ended within a year of it getting started, and the result was the Roaring 20's, one of the most prosperous periods in US history. The point is this... our economy is not rebounding and now that SS taxes have gone up drastically it is not getting any better. In some states, there ha ...

"We live in an age of science and of abounding accumulation of material things. These did not create our Declaration. Our Declaration created them. The things of the spirit come first." - Calvin Coolidge in 1926
Calvin Coolidge on the radio, marking the 150th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence. That is final.
Memorable quotes from the ghetto-fabulous ladies sitting behind us in the Hall of Presidents: "Woodrow Wilson? What kind of name is Woodrow?!" "Calvin Coolidge! What the *** ?" "Ooh, John F. Kennedy is sexy!" Magical.
"The most difficult part of getting to the top of ladder is getting through the crowd at the bottom." I thought this bit of history is quite interesting. SGT . STUBBY W AR DOG HERO ! Meet America 's first war dog, a stray Pit Bull/Terrier mix, named Stubby. He became Sgt. Stubby, was the most decorated war dog of World War I and the only dog to be promoted to sergeant through combat. One day he appeared at Yale Field in New Haven, Connecticut; while a group of soldiers were training, stopping to make friends with soldiers as they drilled. One soldier, Corporal Robert Conroy, developed a fondness for the dog. He named him Stubby because of his short legs. When it became time for the outfit to ship out, Conroy hid Stubby on board the troop ship. To keep the dog, the private taught him to salute his commanding officers warming their hearts to him Stubby served with the 102nd Infantry, 26th (Yankee) Division in the trenches in France for 18 months and participated in four offensives and some 18 battles.

My friend has always accused me of going to Glendale Gardens Cafe because some days it's like a freak show. You never know what or who you might see. I've always insisted that this is not true. Well, today at lunch an older gentleman walks in with a cane, starched collar, straw hat, etc., an entire outfit from the early 20th century. My first thought is maybe he's a reenactor, portraying Calvin Coolidge or Woodrow Wilson. I asked the waitress what she thought. Without too much encouragement, she went and asked him. He was perturbed by her interrogation, but she asked if he was Coolidge or Wilson. No, he was neither president. His wife said that he just likes to wear those clothes. If you dress like that, don't you assume that someone's going to ask you about it? Where were his manners? Shouldn't he have removed his hat when he came into the building? Yes, I left the waitress a big tip, of course!
"Our laws and institutions must necessarily be based on the teachings of the Redeemer of mankind, it is impossible that it should be otherwise; and in this sense and to this extent our civilization and our institutions are emphatically Christian" President Calvin Coolidge addressing the Supreme Court in 1892 Does our present president hold this same sense of loyalty to our Christian heritage, our constitution and our rights as Americans? If I remember correctly, Obama said something to the effect, "America is no longer a Christian nation, but a Muslim nation." Also note a Quote by President Lincoln "America will never be destroyed from the outside, if we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because destroyed ourselves" JUST SOME THOUGHTS TO PONDER!
“I’ve never been hurt by anything I didn’t say.” ~Calvin Coolidge. (Compare with Proverbs 10:19: "In the multitude of words sin is not lacking, but he who restrains his lips is wise.")
I would like to wish my sweet sister a Happy 90th birthday today you would never know she was that age Love You so much ,Hope it is a great day for you sister
