We cannot do everything at once, but we can do something at once., Calvin Coolidge
Somewhere I read the story of several people who were invited to take tea at the White House when Calvin Coolidge was president. They were simple people who were not used to formality. They wanted to be sure they didn't make any mistakes, so they decided to watch the president and do whatever he did. When President Coolidge came in, he sat down and took a cup of tea. They did likewise. He put in two tablespoons of sugar. They followed suit. He stirred the mixture. They did the same. Then he took his saucer and poured cream in it. They felt uneasy, but did as he did, but they couldn't figure out what to do with their saucers of cream when he gave his to the cat! Someone might say, "Serves them right for trying to be what they weren't!" They might go on to say, "Isn't that what you're doing when you try to be heterosexual?" To ask that shows that this person has bought into the lie which traps so many in a false identity. Suppose we look at it from another angle. Have you ever been feeling and a ...
Nothing in this world can take 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

Considerations for Thursday September 25, 2014 Thought for the Day: Calvin Coolidge is seldom quoted either now or when he was president. But Coolidge was a true disciple of Christ in his personal life and public life as well. He once wrote, “The antiquary of tradition is the preserver of all that is right and good and true. It is the wisest and most progressive of all human impulses.” Most Christians who sought to reform the Church also wanted to preserve the traditions that made her so rich and meaningful to people. Those men and women sought to weed out the corruptions and distortions that so afflicted the faith in their times. Their goal if honest and wise would always go back to the essential roots of Scripture, prayer, and essential sacramental life centered on Christ. It is that tradition in which all Christians despite diversities can find unity and come together to do the good work Jesus seeks his disciples to do now. Readings from Scripture for Thursday: Ecclesiastes 1: 2-11 Luke 9: 7-9 The ...

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 ...

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. I recently sold this $5 Coolidge Plate Block from my Ebay store REMstamps plan to start adding more "Stamps for Collectors" in my Etsy store in the weeks ahead for those who are collectors of US stamps
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. Eliminate Excessive Taxes - Excessively high taxes are a burden for those exercising their personal liberty to work hard and prosper as afforded by the Constitution. A fiscally responsible government protects the freedom of its citizens to enjoy the fruits of their own labor without interference from a government that has exceeded its necessary size, sco ...

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 ...

"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.

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 ...

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 ...

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?

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 ...
