It has come to my attention that we now know who the real perpetrators are of the Veterans are just so much Cannon Fodder Ideology. Below is a listing of all the 20th century's Presidents. In a recent vote The GOP refuse to want to fund the VA system. There is a 5-5 ratio for the wars or conflicts we have been involved in. but WW1 and WW2 were no brainers and had to be waged. So that brings us to 5(GOP) to 3 (DNC). The number preceding the name is the number of their presidency. 26. Theodore Roosevelt, 1901-1909 27.

intresting .Use of Bibles Theodore Roosevelt did not use a Bible when taking the oath in 1901. Barack Obama, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Harry S. Truman, and Richard Nixon (also a Quaker) swore the oath on two Bibles. John Quincy Adams swore on a book of law, with the intention that he was swearing on the constitution. Lyndon B. Johnson was sworn in on a Roman Catholic missal on Air Force One. Washington kissed the Bible afterwards, and subsequent presidents followed suit, up to and including Harry Truman,[ but Dwight D. Eisenhower broke that tradition by saying his own prayer instead of kissing the Bible ANY AMERICAN HEAR ? WHAT IS A DOUBLE BIBLE ?
With all of this talk about the Obama Presidential Library/Museum and some entities in Chicago are politicking for this city to be considered as a site, I did 15 minutes worth of research on the topic. I Googled (10) former presidents' libraries; Jimmy Carter, William Jefferson Clinton, Ronald Reagan, Lyndon B. Johnson, Dwight D. Eisenhower, George Herbert Bush, John F. Kennedy, Gerald Ford, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Harry S. Truman. I discovered two facts I think are important to consider. All of these Libraries/Museums/Centers came to fruition due to the establishment of private FOUNDATIONS. Not public funding. The other fact is, with the exception of the Reagan Library/Museum, they are all closed. Apparently, there really isn't a lot of public interest in these libraries and I believe had Reagan not been an actor before he was a politician, folks wouldn't care about his either. Therefore, my question for Chicago is,aside from some "bragging rights", how would the people benefit from such an expensive . ...
(Description by Thomas Uhrmacher ): The glorious Southernmost House had amazing appeal, beckoning Presidents, royalty, celebrities, and many more. Over the next 40 years, the Ramos family would play host to all of them, including United States Presidents Harry S. Truman, Richard Nixon, John Kennedy, Dwight D. Eisenhower, and Jimmy Carter. Truman, who had a reputation for wandering around the island in the evenings, would often stop in to relax in the parlor and enjoy a cocktail or two with the friendly company of Mr. and Mrs. Ramos. Ernest Hemingway, a Key West fixture and an avid horseback rider, visited The Southernmost House so often that he kept his saddle there. Others came and went and came again as often as they could, including King Juan Carlos of Spain. Concerned about security for the young Prince, the Ramos’s solved the situation by building a helicopter pad on the south side of the property, enabling their cousin to take a direct route from Miami to Key West. The helicopter pad is still on t ...
The Tuskegee syphilis experiment conducted between 1932 and 1972, This was a experiment where the government gave syphilis to 400 black men "without" their knowledge under the promise of free health care. Lets look at who was in charge at that time. Franklin D. Roosevelt elected in 1932 Democrat , Harry S. Truman elected in 1944 Democrat , Dwight D. Eisenhower elected 1952 Republican , John F. Kennedy elected 1960 Democrat , Lyndon B. Johnson elected 1962 Democrat , Richard Nixon elected 1968 Republican. My question is after 40 years and 6 Presidents 4 of witch where Democrats, WHY would blacks every vote for a Democrat? this is just one example of many of how the Democrat party has fooled Blacks into thinking they care about them. REMEMBER the key phrase FREE HEALTHCARE!.Doug

Taft and to crusade . ...

As I sit here tonight, I remember some of the things I have seen in my time on this ball of mud we call home. I saw, though don't really remember, the end of Harry S. Truman's presidency. the first president I can actually remember was Dwight D. Eisenhower, I watched John F. Kennedy being sworn in, and watched in trepidation as the Cuban missile crises played out. My brother went to war in Viet Nam and little did I know I would soon follow. I saw men go to the moon and back. I saw my president murdered on a street in Dallas. I watched the fall of Saigon with misgivings and sadness. I saw a president resign over a cover-up over a break in and another impeached over lying about sex. I saw an actor become a great president. I saw a man who was less well qualified than most second graders in the fifty's, become the president of this once great nation. I have watched as this impostor has tried to destroy our future by lying and cheating in every way he could think of. I see him slowly turning our nation over . ...
On this day in the American presidency, July 8: • 1919, President Woodrow Wilson received a tumultuous welcome in New York City after his return from the Versailles (vehr-SY’) Peace Conference in France. • 1950, President Harry S. Truman named Gen. Douglas Macarthur commander-in-chief of United Nations forces in Korea. (Truman ended up sacking MacArthur for insubordination nine months later.) • 1958, President Dwight D. Eisenhower began a visit to Canada, where he conferred with Prime Minister John Diefenbaker and addressed the Canadian Parliament. • 1972, the Nixon administration announced a deal to sell $750 million in grain to the Soviet Union. (However, the Soviets were also engaged in secretly buying subsidized American grain, resulting in what critics dubbed “The Great Grain Robbery.”) • 1975, President Gerald R. Ford announced he would seek a second term of office. • 2003, In Senegal at the start of a five-nation tour of Africa, President George W. Bush called American slavery one ...
VIETNAM WAR RESEARCH FINDING: Sad to think that countless 'lost' their lives in Vietnam based upon a passage from Herman Melville's "Moby *** "-- "This is a world of chance, free will, and necessity -- all interweavingly working together as one; chance by turn rules either and has the last featuring blow at events." Preliminary evidence showed the war was "unwinnable." Presidential administrations of Harry S. Truman, Dwight D. Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson had all misled the public about the degree of U.S. involvement in Vietnam. (TPP-Office of the Secretary of Defense, January 15, 1969)
Just in case you forget WE ARE ALL EVIL here is a little known fact: Jesse Owens (AFRICAN AMERICAN OLYMPIAN) was allowed to travel with and stay in the same hotels in NAZI Germany as whites, while at the time African Americans in many parts of the United States had to stay in segregated hotels while traveling. After a New York City ticker-tape parade of Fifth Avenue in his honor, Owens had to ride the freight elevator at the Waldorf-Astoria to reach the reception honoring him.[4] Owens said, "Hitler didn't snub me – it was FDR who snubbed me. The president didn't even send me a telegram."[15] Hitler sent Owens a commemorative inscribed cabinet photograph of himself.[16] Jesse Owens was never invited to the White House nor were honors bestowed upon him by President Franklin D. Roosevelt (FDR) or his successor Harry S. Truman during their terms. In 1955, President Dwight D. Eisenhower (himself an athlete of note) honored Owens by naming him an "Ambassador of Sports."
Via Wiki: Raymond L. Telles, Jr. (born September 5, 1915) was the first Mexican-American Mayor of a major American city, El Paso, Texas. REST IN PEACE!! Born in El Paso and educated as an accountant, Telles worked at the United States Department of Justice for eight years. He was drafted into the Army in 1941. Telles then served in the U.S. Army Air Force where he became Chief of the Lend-Lease Program for Central and South America. Telles left the service with the rank of major. Telles received the Peruvian Flying Cross, the Order of the Southern Cross from Brazil, the Mexican Legion of Merit and Colombian wings in recognition of the Lend-Lease Program. Telles served as aide to several Latin American and Mexican presidents visiting the United States, and as military aide to Presidents Harry S. Truman and Dwight D. Eisenhower when visiting Mexico City. Telles was elected county clerk for El Paso County, Texas in 1948. In 1951, Telles was recalled for the Korean War. He served as Executive Officer of the 6 ...
George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and Franklin D. Roosevelt are consistently ranked at the top of the lists. Often ranked just below those Presidents are Thomas Jefferson and Theodore Roosevelt. The remaining places in the top ten are often rounded out by Harry S. Truman, Woodrow Wilson, Dwight D. Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy, and Andrew Jackson. The bottom ten are Warren G. Harding, James Buchanan, Andrew Johnson, Franklin Pierce, Millard Fillmore, Ulysses S. Grant, George W. Bush, Zachary Taylor, William Henry Harrison, and John Tyler. Because Harrison (32 days) and James A. Garfield (200 days, incapacitated after 119 days) both died shortly after taking office, they are sometimes omitted from presidential rankings. Zachary Taylor also died after serving as president for only 16 months, but is usually included. In the case of these three, it is not clear if they received low rankings due to their actions as president, or because each was president for such a limited time that it is not possible to rate ...
To those who believe the GOP is finished & that the USA is going liberal. Something my mother (& schooling) taught me about liberalism versus conservatism is that society tends to have a generation that is progressive or conservative. After a time the next generation emerges & rejects the previous generations stance. An example of this would be flower power, that generation wished to reject the notion of the old fashioned moral code. Then the next generation came along & decided progressiveness was moving too fast & decided to slow progressiveness by electing Reagan. In time, whether or not it takes 4, 8 or 12 years, the USA will likely revert to conservatism to secure tradition. It's even true in Canada if one looks at our voting pattern generation to generation. So, to say the GOP is no more is contrary to human nature. Simply look at the pattern of USA Presidents since World War II. Franklin D. Roosevelt - D Harry S. Truman - D Dwight D. Eisenhower - R John F. Kennedy - D Lyndon B. Johnson - D ...
In any case, it is wrong to characterize Republicans as the party of warmongers and Democrats as the party of peace -- or even to call the latter a left-wing party at all. After all, it was Democratic presidents Harry S. Truman, John F. Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson who started the wars in Korea and Vietnam. Republican presidents Dwight D. Eisenhower and Richard Nixon ended these wars. And Ronald Reagan, who Europeans see as the embodiment of both the evil and absurd aspects of American politics, was a peaceful man compared to the standards we have since become accustomed to. He only ever invaded Grenada. The truth is that we simply no longer understand America. Looking at the country from Germany and Europe, we see a foreign culture. The political system is in the hands of big business and its lobbyists. The checks and balances have failed. And a perverse mix of irresponsibility, greed and religious zealotry dominate public opinion. The downfall of the American empire has begun. It could be that the country ...
My latest Letter to the Editor: After World War II, at the very beginning of the Cold War, President Harry S. Truman allowed OSS intelligence leader Allen Dulles to mold the newly created Central Intelligence Agency – an agency that was formed “to keep the president promptly and fully informed” - but one that became an agency that fought communism, assassinated foreign leaders, worked to change foreign governments, and disrupt economies of nations that were viewed to be “enemies of the USA”. In addition, the CIA was given “plausible deniability” - so the agency would be able to accomplish its assignments without anyone taking the blame if anything went wrong - and so the agency would answer to no one. 12 years later, on January 17, 1961, out-going President Dwight D. Eisenhower gave his farewell address. During the speech, he warned the people of the United States about the dangers that the new “Military-Industrial Complex” presented to us – in that, this new massive military force an ...
An intergalactical meeting held at Washington DC with US president Harry S. Truman and also with president Dwight D. Eisenhower.
"Men make history, and not the other way around. In periods where there is no leadership, society stands still. Progress occurs when courageous, skillful leaders seize the opportunity to change things for the better." --Harry S. Truman "You do not lead by hitting people over the head - that's assault, not leadership." --Dwight D. Eisenhower "You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children's children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done." --Ronald Reagan
As my last status was a lot to read, the correct answer was, "Dwight D. Eisenhower." So to have a little less, which of these presidents did not insist on and propose a universal health care plan? (Only one answer is correct.) A.) Harry S. Truman (Democrat) B.) Dwight D. Eisenhower (Republican) C.) Lyndon B. Johnson (Democrat) D.) Richard M. Nixon (Republican) E.) James E. Carter (Democrat) F.) Ronald W. Reagan (Republican) G.) George H. Bush (Republican) H.) Bill J. Clinton (Democrat) I.) George W. Bush (Republican) J.) Barack H. Obama (Democrat) (If you're wondering why two presidents are missing, John F. Kennedy and Gerald R. Ford served less than a full term, although both insisted on a universal health care plan but did not serve long enough to propose one.)
MEMORABLE QUOTATIONS ~ “Educate and inform the whole mass of the people. They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty.” - Thomas Jefferson ~ “We have nothing to fear but fear itself.” - Franklin D. Roosevelt “I would rather have peace in the world than be President.” - Harry S. Truman “Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country.” - John F. Kennedy ~ “Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired, signifies in the final sense a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.” - Dwight D. Eisenhower ~ “We cannot be both the world's leading champion of peace and the world's leading supplier of the weapons of war.” - Jimmy Carter ~ “Entrepreneurs and their small enterprises are responsible for almost all the economic growth in the United States.” - Ronald Reagan ~ “I did not have sexual relations with that woman - Miss Lewinsky.” - William J.
