HERE'S TODAY'S RICHMOND REGISTER'S ARTICLE Here are a few interesting "Fourth of July" facts: The Liberty Bell, which was made in England, has not been rung since 1846 for fear of further cracking. It is, however, "tapped" thirteen times each July Fourth in recognition of the thirteen colonies. The American colonies were settled by people of deep religious convictions who crossed the Atlantic to escape religious persecution and to practice their faiths freely. New England, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Maryland were founded for religious reasons. Three of our Presidents died on July Fourth: John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, bitter foes, died within hours of each other in 1826; and James Monroe died in 1831. Calvin Coolidge was born on July 4, 1872. The Revolution called for women to engage in household industries and teaching, gave them increased rights to divorce and maintain custody of children, and allowed them to have freer choice in marriage and in the number of children born. Still they were deni ...

"One afternoon a big wolf waited in a dark forest for a little girl to come along carrying a basket of food to her grandmother. Finally a little girl did come along and she was carrying a basket of food. "Are you carrying that basket to your grandmother?" asked the wolf. The little girl said yes, she was. So the wolf asked her where her grandmother lived and the little girl told him and he disappeared into the wood. When the little girl opened the door of her grandmother's house she saw that there was somebody in bed with a nightcap and nightgown on. She had approached no nearer than twenty-five feet from the bed when she saw that it was not her grandmother but the wolf, for even in a nightcap a wolf does not look any more like your grandmother than the Metro-Goldwyn lion looks like Calvin Coolidge. So the little girl took an automatic out of her basket and shot the wolf dead. (Moral: It is not so easy to fool little girls nowadays as it used to be)" - James Thurber

Harry Micajah Daugherty was an American politician. A key Ohio Republican political insider, Daugherty is best remembered for his service as Attorney General of the United States under Presidents Warren G. Harding and Calvin Coolidge. Despite his status as a key political leader of the Ohio Republican Party from the 1880s through the first decade of the 20th Century, Daugherty was himself only briefly a statewide elected politician, serving just two terms in the Ohio General Assembly, working closely during the last two years with Governor William McKinley. Although he sought national office several times, Daugherty was thwarted in his effort to obtain the nomination of his party and was never elected to office again. Daugherty remained an influential figure behind the election of several Congressmen and U.S. Senators. In 1920 he was the campaign manager for Warren G. Harding for President of the United States at the Republican National Convention. Following Harding's successful election Daugherty was nam ...

the economy took a hard down turn in the 1980s and in 2008, if was because the same economic policies were repeated that caused the Stock Market to crash in 1929. The Great Depression was caused by deregulation and bad tax policies, put in place by three consecutive Republican Presidents. Starting with Warren Harding in 1921, through Calvin Coolidge and then Herbert Hoover, the United States fell into an economic depression. It took President Franklin D. Roosevelt, his New Deal and World War 2 to help get the United States back on track. Roosevelt had to deal with Republican opposition in congress and a new war, but after years in office, was able to get the job done.

Strategy - "Island warfare " not so easy ... The Perils of Island Warfare It’s a lot easier to take an island than it is to hold on to it. By James R. Holmes May 13, 2014 So the Naval Diplomat spent last weekend discussing Asian security with glitterati from our fair Ocean State, the West Coast, and Japan. I hosted them at my cottage off Newport’s Bellevue Avenue and my gracious seaside estate overlooking the Narragansett Bay. Verily, it’s good to number among the Four Hundred. It was a tad jarring, amid such genteel surroundings, that everyone wanted to talk about war in the Pacific. But maybe it shouldn’t be: New Englanders’ fascination with Japan dates to Commodore Matthew Perry’s celebrated voyages to the archipelago in the 1850s. Yep, the good commodore was a Newporter. And of course it was in Newport that naval thinkers gamed out the Pacific War during the 1920s and 1930s. Admiral Chester Nimitz lavished praise on local boys for their foresight. New England may jut into the Atlantic, but ...

The 1927 Lake Lure Inn and Spa... Location: Lake Lure, North Carolina The historic inn has been visited by such celebrities as novelist F. Scott Fitzgerald and presidents Calvin Coolidge and Franklin Roosevelt. In the 1940s it was used as a convalescent home for wounded soldiers. It is now rumored to be the home of many haunts. Staff members report hearing a man’s gravelly voice call their names and seeing a shadowy shape. The apparition of a woman who was murdered in the 1930s in Room 217 has been seen by guests, and a woman’s scream has been recorded there by ghost hunters. An apparition believed to be Dr. Lucius Morse has been seen in the dining room. A photo taken of an ice sculpture at an event showed a ghostly figure of a man standing behind it.

Calvin Coolidge, a president of few words, was so famous for saying so little that a White House dinner guest made a bet that she could get the president to say more than two words. She told the president of her wager. His reply: "You lose."
We need to feel that behind us is intelligence and love. Doubters do not achieve; skeptics do not contribute; cynics do not create. Faith is the great motive power, and no man realizes his full possibilities unless he has the deep conviction that life is eternally important, and that his work, well done, is a part of an unending plan.” ― President Calvin Coolidge
DCH Recognizes Employees During National Hospital Week Each year in the month of May, hospitals across the country celebrate National Hospital Week. This year’s theme is “Compassion, Innovation, Dedication: The Commitment Continues” and is celebrated from May 11-17, 2014. National Hospital Week is all about celebrating our employees. Decatur County Hospital would like to recognize the men and women who, day in and day out, remain committed to improving the health of their community through compassionate care, constant innovation and unwavering dedication. National Hospital Week dates back to 1921 when it was suggested by a magazine editor who hoped a community wide celebration would alleviate public fears about hospitals. The observance is sponsored nationally by the American Hospital Association (AHA). The formal observation of National Hospital Week occurred when Calvin Coolidge issued an official presidential proclamation. Since that time, the AHA and our own Iowa Hospital Association have ca ...

1930 This year, thirty-three years after the first World Zionist Congress was held in Basle, Switzerland, the first Rothschild “World Bank,” the, “Bank for International Settlements (BIS),” is established in the same place, Basle, Switzerland. It is established by Charles G. Dawes (Rothschild agent and Vice President under President Calvin Coolidge from 1925-1929), Owen D. Young (Rothschild agent, founder of RCA and Chairman of General Electric from 1922 until 1939), and Hjalmar Schacht of Germany (President of the Reichsbank). The BIS is referred to by the bankers as the, “Central bank for the central banks.” To put this bank into perspective today, whereas the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank deal with governments, the BIS deals only with other central banks. All its meetings are held in secret and involve the top central bankers from around the world. For example the former head of the Federal Reserve, Alan Greenspan, would go to the BIS headquarters in Basel, Switzerlan ...
Plate block of the $5.00 Calvin Coolidge stamp from the 1938 Presidential Series of stamps. This series of stamps helped me remember the order of the Presidents since the denomination of the the stamp was the same as the number in order of the US Presidents up to the 22c Grover Cleveland stamp who was our 22nd and 24th President. After that I had to remember a little harder.

Ghosts in the White House All the security in the world cannot keep ghosts out of the White House. And I'm not just talking ghosts in the closet but actual apparitions! Though the White House was relatively new for its first reported sighting in the late 1700s, it was surrounded by towns along the Potomac River and as life does everywhere in the world, there were deaths of all kinds and by all means. John Adams, the second United States President, moved in when he won the Presidency in 1797. He and his wife Abigail were tenants there from him taking office to the end of his term in 1801. During their four year tenure there, his wife would often be found doing laundry in the sunny and dry room called the East Room. Here she reported seeing a woman wearing a cap and lace shawl, arms outstretched as if she were welcoming her into a haunting embrace. Ghosts in the White House Another spectre was David Burns, who was a large land owner and sold what the White House and much of Washington sits on now to the gov ...
Ten Core Beliefs of the Modern-Day Tea Party Movement “Be sure you put your feet in the right place, then stand firm.” Abraham Lincoln Preamble: The Tea Party Movement is an all-inclusive American grassroots movement with the belief that everyone is created equal and deserves an equal opportunity to thrive in these United States where they may “pursue life, liberty and happiness” as stated in the Declaration of Independence and guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States. No one is excluded from participation in the Tea Party Movement. Everyone is welcomed to join in seeking to achieve the Tea Party Movement goals, which are as follows: 1.

From "THE BEST OF WILL ROGERS" BY Bryan Sterling. During the presidential campaign of 1928 between Herbert Hoover and Al Smith, the humor magazine 'Life' nominated Will Rogers a candidate on the "Bunkless" ticket. Will entered into the jest by paraphrasing Calvin Coolidge's famous statement, "I chews to run". he waged his campaign solely in the pages of "Life" magazine, his only campaign promise being that if elected he would resign. His campaign was endorsed by Henry Ford, Nicholas Murray Butler, Judge Ben B. Lindsey, Charles Dana Gibson, Reverend Frances J. Duffy, Glenn H. Curtiss, Harold Lloyd, William Allen White, Grantland Rice, Ring Lardner, General Billy Mitchell, Babe Ruth, and many others. On election day , "Life declared Will Rogers winner of the vote by the silent majority and called him "Unofficial President of the United States" The twenties had less than ten weeks to roar when the house of stock certificates collapsed. Will had warned: "You will try to show us we are prosperous, because ...

I'm going to start posting a Calvin Coolidge quote every day. "For six years that man has given me unsolicited advice. All of it bad."
Jared Law POSTED. Not even close to being true, Mark Campbell. Not only do the wealthy pay more in taxes when tax rates are lower, but the economy in the 1980's a booming American economy, much stronger than anything the Democrats have presided over. In face, the three greatest periods of economic expansion in the past century have occurred after large tax (and in two cases, 50% spending) cuts. After WWII, in the late 1940's, government spending was drastically cut, and the economy boomed. The other period of great economic expansion occurred in the 'roaring' 1920's, when Calvin Coolidge & Congress cut government spending in half. This lifting of government tyranny freed America, causing the greatest expansion of individual prosperity, and causing things only the wealthy could afford to become household items and services. For example, before the 'roaring 20's,' only a select few wealthy Americans enjoyed the private use of telephones, electric lights, automobiles, or any of the devices my grandparents t ...

“I want the people of America to be able to work less for the government and more for themselves. I want them to have the rewards of their own industry. This is the chief meaning of freedom. Until we can reestablish a condition under which the earnings of the people can be kept by the people, we are bound to suffer a very severe and distinct curtailment of our liberty.” ― Calvin Coolidge
"Politics is not an end, but a means. It is not a product, but a process. It is the art of government. Like other values it has its counterfeits. So much emphasis has been placed upon the false that the significance of the true has been obscured and politics has come to convey the meaning of crafty and cunning selfishness, instead of candid and sincere service." - Calvin Coolidge

The wise and correct course to follow in taxation and all other economic legislation is not to destroy those who have already secured success but to create conditions under which every one will have a better chance to be successful. Calvin Coolidge

In 1923, Calvin Coolidge simultaneously launched the tradition of the National Christmas Tree and demonstrated the wonders of modern electricity. With one switch, he instantly illuminated the 2,500 red, white, and green bulbs that decorated the 48-foot balsam placed outdoors on the Ellipse.
Republican leaders in Congress are now surrendering on ObamaCare, surrendering on amnesty for illegal aliens, surrendering on *** marriage, surrendering on everything. But this is nothing new. . . and was entirely predictable. This book I've written - TAKEOVER -- explains why this is happening and why this will continue to happen without new leadership. There have been only two small-government conservative Presidents in the last 100 years - Calvin Coolidge and Ronald Reagan. Both were very successful. Their small-government policies led to tremendous economic expansion - in the 1920s under Coolidge and in the 1980s and 1990s because of Reagan's tax cuts and deregulation. Every other Republican President has been comfortable with big government: Hoover, Eisenhower, Nixon, Ford, and the two Bushes. Eisenhower never cut the top income tax rate of 90 percent left over from World War Two - even though Eisenhower also had the benefit of Republican majorities in both houses of Congress. He did nothing about the ...

We identify the flag with almost everything we hold dear on earth, peace, security, liberty, our family, our friends, our home... But when we look at our flag and behold it emblazoned with all our rights we must remember that it is equally a symbol of our duties. Every glory that we associate with it is the result of duty done. Calvin Coolidge

PIECES OF 'WOOD' FROM ARIZONA'S BREATHTAKING PETRIFIED FOREST ARE ENSCONCED INSIDE THE WASHINGTON MONUMENT Senators Ralph Cameron and Henry Fountain Ashurst, Congressman Carl Hayden, and former Governor Thomas Campbell dedicated the Washington Monument’s Arizona stone ninety years ago this month. President Calvin Coolidge also spoke at the event, as did Nina Smith, the state Daughters of the American Revolution regent attending the ceremony as Governor Hunt’s official representative. Fittingly, our stone differs from those of all other states as it consists not of granite, marble, limestone, sandstone, or gneiss, but three slabs of petrified wood. The specimens displayed in the monument to President Washington were collected from the Chalcedony Forest near Holbrook, not far from the stunning and somewhat otherworldly landscapes of Petrified Forest National Park. Each state of the Union boasts a stone of its own in the Washington Monument, as do many cities, organizations, companies, individuals, and f ...

Former President Calvin Coolidge was known as a man of few words. Once, at a White House dinner, a woman approached Coolidge and said, "Mr. President, I have a bet with a friend that I can get you to say at least three words." Coolidge looked at her and said, "You lose."
Since dead people get to vote, I think we should get to vote on dead people for President. If so, then I would vote for Calvin Coolidge. Or, going back way further, Davy Crockett.

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 ...

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 ...

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)

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. ...

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.

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 ...

Was the USA founded on Christian principles?

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."

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 ...

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).

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.

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)

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.
