ON MY QUOTEBOX….I heard that

 

Now Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has been accused of plagiarizing a part of his acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention. Several Canadians are calling foul during the broadcast of Biden’s speech Thursday night, accusing Biden of lifting the words of departed liberal Canadian politician Jack Layton, who passed away in 2011.

 

“One thing is for sure. If you ever miss a Joe Biden speech….You won’t miss anything that you haven’t heard before!”

A Real Teacher

Teacher of the Year – The Armijo Signal
I ASSUME THIS POST IS
WRITTEN BY:  MISS SCHAAL

 

When I was a HS sophomore – decades ago! – my World History teacher was Mrs. Holloway, but we all called her Granny Holloway. She was a slight woman, scarcely 5 feet tall, seemingly fragile, but full of vim and vinegar….you know the type. She could speak for hours about the Fall of the Roman Empire, the Inquisition, the Industrial Revolution, and the World Wars. She never sat while she lectured, never stood at a lectern, but moved around the room making eye contact with all of her students. She was demanding too, and I can’t remember how many papers were sent back to me because she would note “you can do better than this, Miss Schaal.”

One day during class, an office aid interrupted her lecture to hand her a note. She read it silently, apologized, and said she needed to leave the room. We knew it had to be important because Granny Holloway stopped lectures for no one.

We sat in the room talking to one another when the door opened, and in walked Mrs. Abels, another teacher in our HS. She explained to us that Granny had been faced with an emergency, a serious one, and it was questionable if she would even be returning to finish out the semester. We were stunned. Would we get a chance to tell her goodbye? Would we get updates, so we would know she was ok? Mrs. Abels assured us that we need not worry, that Granny was safe but needed time away, and that the best thing we could do for her, and the best way we could show our devotion to her, was to be cooperative with her replacement. Mrs. Abels confirmed that she had been asked and had agreed to step in as Granny’s replacement.

Cheer up, she told us, this could be a good thing. Other teachers still believed in endless homework and projects with deadlines and hard work. She would not bring that into our class. She believed in clean slates. If there were grades that we did not like, she could give us a chance to bring them up. She asked us what suggestions we had to make the semester a better learning experience. Someone mentioned that lectures were boring and we wanted more films. Done, she said. Someone else mentioned that a free day now and then would help us if we needed to catch up on work in other classes. She didn’t see a problem with that. She asked us how we felt about an end-of-semester party. Um, yeah, sounded very good to us. And on and on. Mrs. Abels listened intently and agreed to all of our suggestions, continually emphasizing that her concern was that we have a good learning experience and enjoy the semester. She also reminded us that we were lucky to not be sent out to other classes where we would be working to catch up, and that of course this was all for Granny.

Near the end of the period, shortly before the bell rang, the door opened and Granny sauntered in with her usual Granny Holloway attitude. “How did they do?,” she asked. “Marvelous,” said Mrs. Abels. “They were completely in my hands.”

Granny then faced us and said “And that, my students, is how a dictator takes over a nation. Not with guns or tanks or laws or mandates. They do it using a poster child and promises and gifts and protection from an enemy.”

I can’t remember a lesson all through 12 years of public school that made such an impression on me, and has stayed with me.

The Question Editor:  Is it proper for Trump’s campaign ads to point out Joe Biden’s apparent mental condition, LL ?

Answer Cat:  It isn’t easy to watch, but is Trump supposed to ignore his apparent mental decline like the MSM ?  The dems shouldn’t nominate anyone who can’t function in normal situations.  They probably are hoping for a sympathy vote.

This candidate needs some support.  She looks better in stilettos than Pigelosi.

No, No.

The dems sure can increase the cost of everything.  They get a kickback.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT—THE REAL JOHN LEWIS


From: Hank Ashmore
The Deplorable Infidel

 

 

THE REAL JOHN LEWIS

What all the tributes to John Lewis, when he died, leave out are the inconvenient truths about him. This is a man who led a front group for the Communist Party in the United States and who lauded a known Communist – Paul Robeson who happened to be a big fan of Stalin, who killed more people than Hitler. Lewis handed off leadership of that Communist front to someone equally radical – Stokely Carmichael. He was a co-sponsor of another Communist front group “ACall” that grew out of the movement to free Angels Davis.

This is a man that despite his 24 arrests, fractured skull, and “warm wounds” in the civil rights struggle of the 1960s has been openly endorsed by the Democratic Socialist of America and who published articles in Communist Party papers. In 1989, Congress condemned the Nicaraguan Communist Sandinistas by a 379-29 vote. Guess who was among the 29? He is a handful of Congresscritters who have praised Fidel Castro and Cuba. To gain an understanding of this ‘saint’s” mindset, John Lewis said this on the House floor in 1995:

“They (Republicans) came first for the Communist, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist. Then they came for the Jews… trade unions… Catholics… Protestants… They are coming for the children. They are coming for the poor. They are coming for the sick, the elderly, and the Disabled.”

Lewis is not afraid of invoking the name of Martin Luther King, Jr. if it suits his political agenda. In fact, he often does in many contexts. With immigration, he said this:

“…if Dr. King were here today, he would be traveling and preaching all across America (to promote) comprehensive immigration reform to legalize millions, on grounds that there is no such thing as a illegal human being.”

Regardless of what Dr. King would have said, at the end of the day John Lewis is nothing but a race baiter who parlayed his name into a House seat. He is no different than Al Sharpton or Rhymin’ Jesse Jackson – race hustlers who see a racial bogyman behind every tree. John Lewis was no more a saint than George Floyd. At best, he was a Socialist; at worst, a Communist dupe. Give him praise for enduring a fractured skull and defiantly walking over a bridge, but that is all John Lewis accomplished in his life. He was a man who lived and breathed through a racial prism who saw racism everywhere while none existed. He is the one who still was still living in the days of Jim Crow.

And this man was allowed to lie in state in the rotunda of the United States Capitol.

“YOU JUST CAN’T MAKE THIS S**T UP” Category

The moron America hating Democrats chose Andrew Cuomo to speak concerning the coronavirus and John Kerry to speak concerning foreign affairs at their convention. Cuomo signed the order that sent Covid-19 affected people into nursing homes and Kerry was instrumental in implementing the Iran nuclear deal.

 

AN OPINION FROM THE DEPLORABLE INFIDEL

Watching the video of the man being beaten senseless in Portland, Ore by BLM reminded me of the films showing the brown shirts in NAZI Germany beating the hell out of the Jews.

Astronomy Picture of the Day

Yogi And Friends In 3D

Explanation: From July of 1997, a ramp from the Pathfinder lander, the Sojourner robot rover, airbags, a couch, Barnacle Bill and Yogi Rock appear together in this 3D stereo view of the surface of Mars. Barnacle Bill is the rock just left of the solar-paneled Sojourner. Yogi is the big friendly-looking boulder at top right. The “couch” is the angular rock shape visible near center on the horizon. Look at the image with red/blue glasses (or just hold a piece of clear red plastic over your left eye and blue or green over your right) to get the dramatic 3D perspective. The stereo view was recorded by the remarkable Imager for Mars Pathfinder (IMP) camera. The IMP had two optical paths for stereo imaging and ranging and was equipped with an array of color filters for spectral analysis. Operating as the first astronomical observatory on Mars, the IMP also recorded images of the Sun and Deimos, the smallest of Mars’ two tiny moons. This July saw the launch of NASA’s Mars Perseverance Rover on a mission to the Red Planet.
