A QUOTE ON EDUCATION

It has been observed, that “education has a greater influence on manners, than human laws can have.” Human laws excite fears and apprehensions, least crimes committed may be detected and punished: But a virtuous education is calculated to reach and influence the heart, and to prevent crimes. A very judicious writer, has quoted Plato, who in shewing what care for the security of States ought to be taken of the education of youth, speaks of it as almost sufficient to supply the place both of Legislation and Administration. Such an education, which leads the youth beyond mere outside shew, will impress their minds with a profound reverence of the Deity, universal benevolence, and warm attachment and affection towards their country. It will excite in them a just regard to Devine Revelation, which informs them of the original character and dignity of Man; and it will inspire them with a sense of true honor, which consists in conforming as much as possible their principles, habits, and manners to that original character. It will enlarge their powers of mind, and prompt them impartially to search for truth in the considerations of every subject that they may employ their thoughts; and among other branches of knowledge, it will instruct them in the skill of political architecture and jurisprudence; and qualify them to discover any error, if there should be such, in the forms and administration of Governments, and point out the method of correcting them.

Samuel Adams, Address to Massachusetts Legislature as Governor, January 17, 1794.

 

WAKE UP AMERICA BEFORE IT’S LATE!

“If our country is to survive and prosper, we must summon the courage to condemn and reject the liberal agenda, and we had better do it soon.”

-Walter Williams-

 

AN OPINION FROM THE DEPLORABLE INFIDEL

A federal judge in California has ruled the Trump administration must provide mental health services to thousands of migrant parents and children separated at the U.S.-Mexico border. I think the money would be much better spent giving mental health services to the moron American hating Democrats in Congress.

 

A SIMPLE TRUTH FOR TODAY

“The people never give up their liberties but under some delusion.”

Edmund Burke

DON’T FORGET TOMORROW…..

Tomorrow is Veterans Day. As far as I am concerned, it is the most important holiday celebrated in our country.  It celebrates the people who served and are serving our country to make, and continue making, it possible for us to be called Americans. Because of them, we will celebrate Veterans Day  in the most powerful country in the world…AMERICA! WE ARE THE WORLD!

Astronomy Picture of the Day

A Mercury Transit Sequence

Explanation: Tomorrow — Monday — Mercury will cross the face of the Sun, as seen from Earth. Called a transit, the last time this happened was in 2016. Because the plane of Mercury’s orbit is not exactly coincident with the plane of Earth’s orbit, Mercury usually appears to pass over or under the Sun. The featured time-lapse sequence, superimposed on a single frame, was taken from a balcony in Belgium shows the entire transit of 2003 May 7. That solar crossing lasted over five hours, so that the above 23 images were taken roughly 15 minutes apart. The north pole of the Sun, the Earth‘s orbit, and Mercury‘s orbit, although all different, all occur in directions slightly above the left of the image. Near the center and on the far right, sunspots are visible. After Monday, the next transit of Mercury will occur in 2032.
