STAND UP, SIT DOWN, BACK UP, BACK OFF, BARK OR BITE ON YOUR TURF, NOT MINE (Issue 1113)

I have related more than once, the story of how I became a blogger. It was about seven years ago, when my son called and said, “Mom, if you will just write, I’ll furnish you a team to help you.” When he said it would be a “blog” and named, “Octogenariansblog.com” I did not know what a Blog nor Octogenarian meant.

When anyone asks me how long I’ve been writing, I always respond, “..before I enrolled in first grade.” I have always loved writing, and while still in high school, wrote a weekly column for a local newspaper, about goings on among high school students, titled, Eavesdropping in High School.

FREEDOM & COMMUNISM – ROOSEVELT – YALTA – ALGER HISS – WHITAKER CHAMBERS – NOW & THEN (Issue 407)

PART THREE OF THIS SERIES

A PERSIAN PROVERB: “He who knows not, and knows not that he knows not, is a fool – shun him. He who knows not, and knows that he knows not, is a child, teach him. He who knows and knows not that he knows – is asleep, wake him. He who knows and knows that he knows is wise, follow him.”

One of my favorite quotations, and I’m reflecting upon that quotation while writing these articles from the book “Witness” by Whitaker Chambers, who was a communist and defected, and testified in the congressional hearings, exposing the communists in seats of government. I suggest reading the book, because he knew – listen to him.

FREEDOM & COMMUNISM – ROOSEVELT – YALTA – ALGER HISS – WHITAKER CHAMBERS – NOW & THEN (Issue 406)

PART TWO

From Leaves of Gold: “Sow a thought, reap an act, sow an act, reap a habit, sow a habit, reap a character, sew a character, reap a destiny.”

Back in the early part of the twentieth century, we were still a relatively young nation, some living in cities but most living on farms. A country of citizens living their lives enjoying Freedom in this country. But there have always been those who wanted power to rule over others. We were told from the beginning of this nation, Freedom requires eternal viligance. Slack in that vigilance began manifesting itself as a progressive movement of power seekers began their erosion of Individual Freedom.

FREEDOM OR COMMUNISM, ROOSEVELT, YALTA, ALGER HISS, WHITAKER CHAMBERS, NOW & THEN (Issue 405)

PART ONE

Here we are in the middle of the year 2010 in the middle of a mid-term election, middle of a very hot summer. In the middle of a news cycle about who is going to sit in Helen Thomas’ former seat at White House press conferences, and why President Obama was not invited to the wedding of Chelsea Clinton’s million dollar wedding, over the weekend.

Lots of other news items touched upon, like the lavish parties the Department of Justice enjoy, plus the expensive travel and expensive parties thrown by Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi. Or the long-time lifestyle of reported tax evasions by Charlie Rangel.
