Helen Keller, even though she was unable to hear or see, was famous from the age of 8 until her death in 1968. Her wide range of political, cultural, and intellectual interests and activities ensured that she knew people in all spheres of life. She counted leading personalities of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries among her friends and acquaintances. These included Eleanor Roosevelt, Will Rogers, Albert Einstein, Emma Goldman, Eugene Debs, Charlie Chaplin, John F. Kennedy, Andrew Carnegie, Henry Ford, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Katharine Cornell, and Jo Davidson to name but a few. Helen Adams Keller was born on June 27, 1880 in Tuscumbia, Alabama. She was the first of two daughters born to Arthur H. Keller and Katherine Adams Keller. She also had two older stepbrothers. Keller’s father had proudly served as an officer in the Confederate Army du ...
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.

What's on my mind? I assume right at this minute. The unsettling fact that Obama has sent now some 300 so-called military advisers back into Iraq! About fifty years ago, the late Prtesident John F. Kennedy sent some 1000 so called military advisers into South Vietnam, as it was called way back then!! He was killed before he could call them ALL BACK OUT by the end of 1965, realizing his BIG mistake. The late President Lyndon B. Johnson, in 1964 then escalated the war (really a police action) and sent thousands of military soldiers into combat in Vietnam! Now we are seeing the same old lies, and tricks using the lame excuse that we now need 'Advisers' on the ground in Iraq!!! Soon, it will be 'escalated' into a call for thousand of more military soldiers of ALL Branches!! Am I right?? I pray to God above, NO WAY! But only time will tell. Time will tell . . .for the 'Military / Industrial Complex' that the late President Dwight D. Eisenhower warned Kennedy and 'we the people' about loves to spend o ...
(CNN) -- East versus West, capitalism versus communism: the Cold War lasted from the end of World War II until the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991. Yet this war was at its height in the 1960s. That's the decade the Cuban Missile Crisis played out, the United States entered the Vietnam War to fight communist forces there, and President John F. Kennedy sent a team of Cuban exiles into Cuba's Bay of Pigs to try to overthrow leader Fidel Castro. Here are five other momentous events of the 1960s Cold War that you might not know: 1. The Soviets shot down an American plane and captured the pilot Why Russians are always the TV bad guys See inside a secret Cold War bunker From Sputnik to the Cuban Missile Crisis 1952: Eisenhower threatens nuclear action The United States had been flying U2 spy planes over the Soviet Union for some time to see if the Soviets were aiming missiles at America and to snap photos of local newspaper headlines. The CIA told President Dwight D. Eisenhower that its sophisticated aircraft, ...
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 . ...
Master Chief Boatswain’s Mate (BMCM) Sherman Byrd was the first African American Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technician. He graduated from NAVSCOLEOD in Indian Head, Maryland with Class 04B-58 in 1958. BMCM Byrd was well liked and respected in the community. He was a model Navy EOD Technician. BMCM Byrd routinely worked with the United States Secret Service helping to protect four Presidents of the United States, President Dwight D. Eisenhower, President John F. Kennedy, President Lyndon B. Johnson and President Richard Nixon. On September 25, 2009, the Navy dedicated the Explosive Ordnance Disposal Training Evaluation Unit Two facility at Fort Story, Virginia Beach, Virginia, in his honor. BMCM Sherman joined the Navy the age of seventeen. He completed Boot Camp in San Diego, CA and then served on four ships, advancing from Seaman Recruit to Boatswain’s Mate Second Class. BM2 Byrd graduated from Deep Sea Diving School at the Washington Navy Yard in April, 1955 and was assigned to the USS Petrel (ASR ...
TOP AMERICANS OF ALL TIME NAMED -- African Americans Make List of 100 Greatest Americans -- Nationwide (BlackNews.com) – African Americans, from celebrities to politicians and Civil Rights activists, were recently voted onto a list of the top 100 Americans of all time. More than 1,000 people from across the country were asked to vote on a list of the greatest Americans. Civil Rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. came in at number five. Rosa Parks, the “mother of the freedom movement” was voted in 10th place, followed by former TV talk show host and media mogul Oprah Winfrey at number 24 and comedian Bill Cosby at number 29. But by far, the most votes went to ex-presidents. Abraham Lincoln tops the list at number one, followed by Thomas Jefferson and John F. Kennedy. Number four is Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon. Former presidents Dwight D. Eisenhower and Harry Truman were voted in at number 16 and 19. President Obama is number 32, just two behind former president Bill Clinton. Of ...
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
Fidel Castro had been a concern to U.S. policymakers since he seized power in Cuba with a revolution in January 1959. Castro's attacks on U.S. companies and interests in Cuba, his inflammatory anti-American rhetoric, and Cuba's movement toward a closer relationship with the Soviet Union led U.S. officials to conclude that the Cuban leader was a threat to U.S. interests in the Western Hemisphere. In March 1960, President Dwight D. Eisenhower ordered the CIA to train and arm a force of Cuban exiles for an armed attack on Cuba. John F. Kennedy inherited this program when he became president in 1961. Though many of his military advisors indicated that an amphibious assault on Cuba by a group of lightly armed exiles had little chance for success, Kennedy gave the go-ahead for the attack. On April 17, 1961, around 1,200 exiles, armed with American weapons and using American landing craft, waded ashore at the Bay of Pigs in Cuba. The hope was that the exile force would serve as a rallying point for the Cuban ...
General Maxwell Davenport Taylor, the son of John Earle Maxwell and Pearle Davenport Taylor and the 4th great-grandson of Rev. Joel Johns of Lunenburg County, Virginia, was born 26 August 1901 in Keytesville, Missouri.  He was a United States Army Four Star General and diplomat, who served as the fifth Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff after having been appointed by President John F. Kennedy in 1962. Gen. Taylor grew up in Missouri and Oklahoma and graduated from the United States Military Academy in 1922. His rise to the highest echelons of U.S. government began under the tutelage of General Matthew B. Ridgway in the US Army's 82nd Airborne Division when Ridgway commanded the division in the early part of World War II. In 1943, Taylor's diplomatic and language skills resulted in his secret mission to Rome to coordinate an 82nd air drop with Italian forces. General Dwight D. Eisenhower would later say that "the risks he ran were greater than I asked any other agent or emissary to take during the w .. ...
On April 9 in Baseball History... 1913 - With league approval, the Dodgers play the first regular-season game at Ebbets Field a day ahead of the rest of the league. Cold weather keeps the Opening Day crowd down to about 12,000 as the Phils' Tom Seaton beats Nap Rucker 1-0. 1947 - Commissioner Happy Chandler suspends manager Leo Durocher of the Brooklyn Dodgers for the entire season for consorting with gamblers. 1959 - In the fifth inning against Washington, the Orioles become the first team in history to turn a triple play on Opening Day.

Ouotes from some of our Presidents. What they belived in. Theodore Roosevelt: Speak softly and carry a big stick. John F. Kennedy: It is an unfortunate fact that we can secure peace only by preparing for war. George W. Bush: Every nation in every region now has a decision to make: either you are with us or you are with the terrorists. Dwight D. Eisenhower: I have only one yardstick by which I test every major problem -- and that yardstick is: Is it good for America? Unlike presidential administrations, problems rarely have terminal dates. Gerald R. Ford: Our constitution works. Our great republic is a government of laws, not of men. Truth is the glue that holds government together. Ulysses S. Grant: Leave the matter of religion to the family altar, the church, and the private school, supported entirely by private contributions. Keep the church and the state forever separate. Abraham Lincoln: You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the peop ...

Speaking of Lewis Black, here's a good Lewis Black quote for life-partners Martin Burwash and Charles Freericks: "In my lifetime, we've gone from Dwight D. Eisenhower to George W. Bush. We've gone from John F. Kennedy to Al Gore. If this is evolution, I believe that in twelve years, we'll be voting for plants." (Of course, in Washington, we already have.)
he Apollo program, also known as Project Apollo, was the third human spaceflight program carried out by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) the United States' civilian space agency. The program was responsible for the landing of the first humans on Earth's Moon in 1969. First conceived during the Presidency of Dwight D. Eisenhower as a three-man spacecraft to follow the one-man Project Mercury which put the first Americans in space, Apollo was later dedicated to President John F. Kennedy's national goal of "landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to the Earth" by the end of the 1960s, which he proposed in a May 25, 1961, address to Congress. Project Mercury was followed by the two-man Project Gemini (1962–66). The first manned flight of Apollo was in 1968. Kennedy's goal was accomplished on the Apollo 11 mission when astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed their Lunar Module (LM) on the Moon on July 20, 1969, and walked on its surface while Michael Collins remain ...

Birthday - Richard M. Nixon (1913-1994) the 37th U.S. President, was born in Yorba Linda, California. He served as Vice President under Dwight D. Eisenhower from 1953-61, then made an unsuccessful run for the presidency, narrowly losing to John F. Kennedy. Nixon ran for governor of California in 1962 and lost. He then told reporters he was leaving politics. However, he re-emerged in 1968 and ran a successful presidential campaign against Hubert Humphrey. He won re-election by a landslide in 1972, but resigned two years later amid impeachment proceedings resulting from the Watergate scandal.
THOUGHT FOR TODAY."PLANES, TRAINS, AND AUTOMOBILES".I got to see them all, yesterday, and all in one gigantic museum."The Henry Ford." This is adjacent to the World famous "Greenfield Village," in Dearborn, Michigan. When you first walk through the entrance, you look up and there suspended from the ceiling, is the Wright Brothers' plane from Kitty Hawk. A little further in, they have a suspended DC3. These are not reproductions, but the "real deal." They have early helicopters, Admiral Byrd's research plane used in Antarctica. They have dozens of the finest cars ever produced, along with trucks, moving vans, fuel trucks, taxi's, early farming equipment, and the car that broke the Land Speed Record. Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Dwight D. Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy,and Ronald Reagan, all have their original Presidential cars permanently displayed. And talk about trains, they have real steam engines, cars and cabooses. They even have Canadian train snowplow, used for clearing the tra ...

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 . ...
Ever since Democrat Adlai Stevenson challenged Republican Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1952 and 1956, the odds have significantly favored those with membership in the elite groups. In 1960, both John F. Kennedy and Richard M. Nixon were members. In 1964, President Lyndon B. Johnson was not a member. Neither was his opponent, Barry Goldwater. But Johnson had already staffed his administration with plenty of insiders. In 1968, it was Nixon versus club member Hubert H. Humphrey. In 1972, it was Nixon again against Democratic Party CFR member George Mcgovern. In 1976, it was CFR Republican Gerald Ford losing to CFR Democrat Jimmy Carter. In 1980, Ronald Reagan was not a member, but his running mate, George H.W. Bush, was. So were both of his opponents – Carter and independent John Anderson. Assuming office, however, Reagan quickly named 313 CFR members to his team. In 1984, another CFR member, Walter Mondale, was nominated by the Democratic Party to challenge Reagan. In 1988, CFR member Bush took on CFR member M ...
This day in U.S. military history, October 22nd: 1862: The Civil War Battle of Old Fort Wayne took place in eastern Oklahoma, then known as the Indian Territory. Native Americans were present in both the Union and Confederate forces, though in smaller numbers on the Union side. The Union force, which was made up mostly of troops from Kansas, included "Indian Home Guard" units of Cherokees. The Confederate force was largely made up of Mounted Regiments of Cherokees, Creeks, and Chickasaws. The Confederates suffered about 150 casualties and were routed. There were only about 14 Union casualties. 1954: President Dwight D. Eisenhower authorized U.S. military forces to train the South Vietnamese. 1962: President John F. Kennedy announced the presence of Soviet missiles in Cuba, and that he was ordering a "Quarantine" of the island by the U.S. Navy to ensure no further Soviet military equipment was delivered. 1972: Operation Linebacker I, the bombing of North Vietnam using Air Force B-52 bombers and Naval airc ...
History The football dates back to Dwight D. Eisenhower, but its current usage came about in the aftermath of the Cuban Missile Crisis, when John F. Kennedy was concerned that a Soviet commander in Cuba might launch missiles without authorization from Moscow.[5] It has been stated in an Associated Press article that the nickname "football" was derived from an attack plan codenamed "Dropkick".[3] The nickname has led to some confusion as to the nature—and even the shape—of the device; in the graphic novel series Watchmen, Richard Nixon, fictionally depicted as still being President in 1985, was depicted with a literal "nuclear football"—a metal device shaped like a football— handcuffed to his wrist in an emergency. While it is never explicitly stated what it is, it is implied that the device either contains the same materials as the real-life nuclear football, or is an electronic activation source for the nuclear option. During their presidencies, both Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan preferred to ke ...
On this day in 1829 the first public appearance by London's re-organized police force was met with jeers from political opponents. The force became known as Scotland Yard, in 1943 U.S. Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower and Italian Marchal Pietro Badoglio signed an armistice aboard the British ship Nelson, in 1962 U.S. President John F. Kennedy nationalized the Mississippi National guard in response to city officials defying federal court orders. The orders had been to enroll James Meredith at the University of Mississippi, in 1984 Irish officials announced that they had intercepted the Marita Anne carrying seven tons of U.S.-purchased weapons. The weapons were intended for the Irish Republican Army, in 1988 the space shuttle Discovery took off from Cape Canaveral in Florida. It was the first manned space flight since the Challenger disaster, and in 1998 Hasbro announced plans to introduce an action figure of retired U.S. General Colin Powell.

  This article was published just before President Ronald Reagan's funeral. If it had been used the bugle would have stayed at the Reagan Library. Thank Goodness it wasn't...   Taps' bugle has a history By KNUT ROYCE, NEWSDAY JUNE 2004   WASHINGTON -- When the Army's top bugler performs the 24 serene notes of taps at Ronald Reagan's burial ceremony in California Friday, Long Island attorney John Vincent Bach will be watching "maybe a little misty-eyed, but proud," he says. The bugle will be a Bach bugle, perhaps the one designed by his late grand-uncle Vincent Bach in 1962 that bade farewell to John F. Kennedy the following year. Or maybe it will be a more evolved model built by the company that bought out Vincent Bach's musical instrument factory in Mount Vernon, N.Y. John Bach and some Reagan family associates said they hope it's the Kennedy bugle, which later sounded taps at the funerals of Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1969, Harry S Truman in 1972, and Lyndon B. Johnson in 1973. A close Reagan family fri ...
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 ...
EXPOSING LEFTIST LIES A filibuster occurs during debate when a Senator refuses to yield the floor and prevents a roll call vote from happening, often killing a bill. Filibusters give a minority of Senators, or even a single Senator, a chance to be heard. Democrats used filibusters to stop Civil Rights legislation in the 1950s and 1960s from being passed, until the Republican Party finally had enough votes in the House and Senate to make sure the Civil Rights and Voting Rights Acts were passed in 1964 and 1965, respectively. Sen. Lyndon B. Johnson filibustered the Civil Rights Bill under Pres. Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1957. Sen. John F. Kennedy voted against the same Bill. However, Democrats today say that the Republican Party has always been racist and "anti-Black". Moreover, they say that so called "liberals" or "leftists" championed Civil Rights Bills. They are absolute deceivers, for history overwhelmingly proves that the Democrat Party has always been opposed to individual liberty, especially for Blac ...
I wrote this headline to get your attention. The truth is that President Barack Obama is nothing like President John F. Kennedy. He isn’t even like President Bill Clinton, who pretended to be Kennedy by chasing young interns around the Oval Office instead of sleeping with Hollywood starlets or mob bosses’ girlfriends. Instead, Obama has a much more complex relationship with women who put the Nation in greater jeopardy than any women who were friends of Kennedy or Clinton. (Fair warning: If you are a women’s rights activist, please stop reading. Otherwise, I will have to wade through all your hate email.) Obama is no cad; he is, as Arnold Schwarzenegger might say, “a girly man.” He is not strong enough to take a leadership role as President, but instead lets two women run his life and the country. In this way, the President is a weakling reminiscent of King Edward VIII, the man who doted on Wallis Simpson’s every wish. He is not like President Dwight D. Eisenhower, who had a dalliance with his ...

Ya Wanna KNOW Why? Here It Is! By Don twobears - I cannot begin to tell you, how many tragedies this great nation has suffered since 1950, but it has been a lot! By the end of World War II, the United States was THE PREMIER nation in the entire world, soon to become the most powerful nation to have ever been in the history of mankind. As President Eisenhower worked in the White House, the vast majority of people were enjoying some sort of newfound prosperity. The future looked bright and every one was fairly happy and content, people were seeing a change from the years of the Great Depression and had seen the war years come to a close. Not only here in the USA were we proud, but most of Europe as well. Change came a little slower there than here, but they had to rebuild after the War. John F. Kennedy became President after Dwight D. Eisenhower and was then assassinated in 1963. At that time, we had many visions of “space age” kitchens and homes, how we would not only get to work, but a new work enviro ...

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 ...

The Riderless Horse One of the oldest and most evocative of military traditions in a full honor funeral is that of the riderless, caparisoned horse. The horse is led behind the caisson wearing an empty saddle with the riders boots reversed in the stirrups. This indicates the warrior will never ride again. Tradition allows a caparisoned horse to follow the casket at any Army or Marine Corps commissioned officer in the rank colonel or above. Presidents of our nation, as Commander in Chief, are accorded the same honor. Over the years millions have witnessed caissons bearing the flag draped caskets of Franklin D. Roosevelt, Herbert Hoover, Douglas Macarthur, John F. Kennedy, Dwight D. Eisenhower, and Lyndon B. Johnson.. In each ceremony the caisson was followed by the caparisoned horse involved in the internment of each Unknown Soldier as well

Election of 1960 John F. Kennedy vs. Richard M. Nixon In 1960 the Democratic Party nominated John F. Kennedy, a senator from Massachusetts, for president. Senator Lyndon B. Johnson of Texas was his running mate. The Republicans nominated Vice President Richard M. Nixon to succeed Dwight D. Eisenhower, who was prohibited from running for a third term by the recently adopted Twenty-second Amendment. The Republican nominee for Vice President was Senator Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr., of Massachusetts. Although much of the campaign centered on style rather than substance, Kennedy stressed what he claimed was a "missile gap" between the United States and the Soviet Union. Kennedy was Catholic, and though religion was not a major issue, it had considerable influence on many voters. Kennedy won the presidency by a popular margin of less than 120,000, receiving 34,227,096 votes to Nixon's 34,107,646. The race was not as close in the electoral college where Kennedy got 303 votes to Nixon's 219. Kennedy was the first Cath ...
"Since 1973, the Lovenstein Institute has published its research on each new president, which includes the famous "IQ" report among others. According to statements in the report, there have been twelve presidents over the past 50 years, from F. D. Roosevelt to G. W. Bush who were all rated based on scholarly achievements, writings that they alone produced without aid of staff, their ability to speak with clarity, and several other psychological factors which were then scored in the Swanson/Crain system of intelligence ranking. " The study determined the following IQs of each president as accurate to within five percentage points: 147 Franklin D. Roosevelt (D) 132 Harry Truman (D) 122 Dwight D. Eisenhower (R) 174 John F. Kennedy (D) 126 Lyndon B. Johnson (D) 155 Richard M. Nixon (R) 121 Gerald Ford (R) 175 James E. Carter (D) 105 Ronald Reagan (R) 98 George H. Bush (R) 182 William J. Clinton (D) 91 George W. Bush (R) The six Republican presidents of the past 50 years had an average IQ of 115.5, with Presi ...
Just a little Presidential History from my limited view. Since I was born there have been 11 Presidents. Dwight D. Eisenhower was President when I was born. I was too young to know much about him and my thoughts are that he was an American Hero in World War II and was responsible for the invasion of Europe at Normandy. I also noticed that he is give credit for the Interstate Highway System. Did you know that the Interstate Highway System was part of a plan to mobilize the military from coast to coast should the need arise? John F. Kennedy. I do remember him and remember exactly where and what I was doing when I heard that he had been killed. I was in Third grade and coming home on the school bus when the news reached me. I along with the entire nation went numb for a while. I know he did many things that made this country strong. He stood up the Russians and made them remove the missiles from Cuba. I know this because my dad was in the Army and his unit at the time was stationed at Ft. Lewis Washington. W ...

The following people won their party's nomination by write-in votes: 1928-Herbert C. Hoover 1940-Franklin D. Roosevelt 1952-Dwight D. Eisenhower 1960-John F. Kennedy Write-ins can be an effective way of showing the government that we are tire of being ignored. The only wasted vote is when you vote for someone/something that you don't believe in 100%. A vote for yourself is never a wasted vote.
He may be the patron saint of limited government, but Ronald Reagan started out as a registered Democrat and New Deal supporter. An F.D.R. fan, the Gipper campaigned for Helen Gahagan Douglas in her fruitless 1950 Senate race against Richard Nixon and encouraged Dwight D. Eisenhower to run for President as a Democrat in 1952. While he was working as a spokesman for General Electric, however, his views shifted right. "Under the tousled boyish haircut," he wrote Vice President Nixon of John F. Kennedy in 1960, "is still old Karl Marx." By the time it actually happened in 1962, Reagan's decision to cross over to the GOP didn't come as much of a surprise. "I didn't leave the Democratic Party," he famously said. "The party left me."
"Let not your heart be troubled" by the actions of those that do not deserve to have the job slots they have. All this was predicted in "The Holy Bible". Just do not do what they do and vote wisely next time. Be sure the one you vote for has the faith and beliefs that guided George Washington, John Adams, Thmas Jefferson, and James Madison as well as Dwight D. Eisenhower and even John F. Kennedy was a 'Jeffersonian'. No wonder they murdered him. Thank you.

The New Yorker What would Obama do if reëlected? Ryan Lizza June 18, 2012 -- In November, 1984, President Ronald Reagan was reëlected in a landslide victory over Walter Mondale, taking forty-nine states and fifty-nine per cent of the popular vote. The Reagan revolution was powerfully reaffirmed. Soon after, Donald Regan, the new chief of staff, sent word to a small group of trusted friends and Administration officials seeking advice on how Reagan should approach his last four years in office. It was an unusual moment in the history of the Presidency, and the experience of recent incumbents offered no guidance. No President since Dwight D. Eisenhower had served two full terms. John F. Kennedy was assassinated. Lyndon Johnson, overwhelmed by the war in Vietnam, had declined to run for reëlection in 1968. Richard Nixon resigned less than seventeen months into his second term. Gerald Ford (who was never elected) and Jimmy Carter were defeated. By the nineteen-eighties, it had become popular to talk about t ...
