I strictly recommend not to wait until you get big sum of money to buy different goods! You should get the credit loans or small business loan and feel fine

Here's a link and some excerpts from a recent article about why Ted Kennedy can thank Neal Armstrong and NASA for their timing.

"...This week we may hear a little about the 35th anniversary of Neil Armstrong's moonwalk, but there is another anniversary that has already gone unnoticed. On July 18, 1969, a couple of nights before Armstrong took that "giant step for mankind," Ted Kennedy took a turn onto a narrow bridge in Chappaquiddick....

...But the whole incident was overshadowed by the worldwide coverage of the moonwalk....

Next week Ted Kennedy will be center stage at the Democratic convention in Boston. ...And last year Boston Globe reporter Charles Pierce commented, "If she had lived, Mary Jo Kopechne would be 62 years old. Through his tireless work as a legislator, Edward Kennedy would have brought comfort to her in her old age."

It would be funny — if it wasn't so sad."

Okay, that's it for me on this.

Academians quit teaching and emphasizing "Western Civilization" in schools long ago and replaced it with "World History." They teach their political agenda, cover alternative cultures (that waste our time), and make everyone feel good about his heritage; i.e., those who reject their American heritage. Naturally, this carried forward to libraries and other information sources. Thankfully, we have the internet so that people who don't accept brainwashing can do more extensive studies.

One more thing: Originally I was going to point out in this post that the Moon Landing happened 25 years to the day after the bomb plot against Hitler, but this other stuff turned out to be more interesting. But that's the reason for "hitler" being in the url for this post.

Yes, I think you're right. My daughter didn't know who Jefferson Davis and General Custer were, but she is soooo sick of hearing about Rosa Parks.

Looking at the events choosen for a few different days, it appears like the Library of Congress may have an "agenda" (yes, in quotes)

Pretty sad that they miss an important event like the moon landing in the process.

I understand the history books in public schools are slanting this way more and more as well...

Any mention of Ted Kennedy driving off the bridge on Chappaquiddick Island and killing Mary Jo Kopechne at this time?
