"Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!" American Minute

American Minute with Bill Federer

"Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!" announced President Ronald Reagan at the Berlin Wall, JUNE 12, 1987.

Begun after Lenin's Bolshevik Revolution in 1917, the Soviet Union existed from 1922 to 1991.

With its motto 'Workers of the World, Unite!' the Soviet tactic of conquest was to train agitators and organizers - "agent provocateurs" - to stir up riots so that the public would accept a military enforced marshal law to restore order.

Franklin Roosevelt addressed Delegates of the American Youth Congress, February 10, 1940:

"Some of you are Communists... You have no American right, by act or deed of any kind, to subvert the Government and the Constitution of this Nation."

Instead of setting up a utopian paradise, the workers were simply used as "useful idiots" to set up a communist dictatorship which gained totalitarian control over some 293 million people across 11 time zones.

Addressing naive students that thought communism would redistribute wealth equally, President Franklin Roosevelt told the American Youth Congress, February 10, 1940:

"The Soviet run by a dictatorship as absolute as any other dictatorship in the world."

Under the Soviet dictatorship:

-privacy was nonexistent;
-press was censored;
-free speech disappeared;
-healthcare was rationed;
-economy was regulated;
-private industry was collectivized;
-political dissent was punished;

-media and entertainment was propagandized;
-children's education became indoctrination;
-marriage and families were subject to social engineering;
-religion was suppressed; and
-human life was valued only by its usefulness to the soviet society.

Franklin Roosevelt stated, February 10, 1940:

"I disliked the regimentation under Communism. I abhorred the indiscriminate killings of thousands of innocent victims...

...I heartily deprecated the banishment of religion,

though I knew that some day Russia would return to religion for the simple reason that four or five thousand years of recorded history have proven that mankind has always believed in God in spite of many abortive attempts to exile God..."

Mother's Day Crochet

I've been battling infections, tooth pain, tooth extraction, corn allergy, and now tomorrow it's Mother's Day. And no gift for my mother. I tried to make a bookmark, but it was getting to hard, the meds corn me, even as they heal me. So, I came up with this book mark for her Bible. I hope she likes it... Hope you all enjoy your weekend.

Martin Luther King, Jr.'s Birthday and a Few Good Quotes

American Minute
"We must not allow our creative protest to degenerate into physical violence."-MLK, Jr.

Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., was assassinated APRIL 4, 1968.

Pastor of Atlanta's Ebenezer Baptist Church, he rose to national prominence through the Southern Christian Leadership Conference.

Awarded the Nobel Prize in 1964, Congress set aside his birthday as a National Holiday.

Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., as well as Archbishop Desmond Tutu, were influenced by the German Confessing Church leader Deitrich Bonhoeffer, who resisted Hitler's anti-Christian totalitarianism.

Rev. King was also influenced by the non-violent methods of India's Mahatma Gandhi who resisted Britain's centralized big government.

Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., said August 28, 1963:

"Now is the time to open the doors of opportunity to all of God's children...

In the process of gaining our rightful place we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds.

Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred.

We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline. We must not allow our creative protest to degenerate into physical violence....

Working on a Crochet Mario Brothers Star Blankie

For one of my son's friend, who may Some Day fall in love and Some Day get married, and Some Day even have a baby. He really likes Mario Brothers, so a blankie seems like a good idea for when I'm wanting to do mindless crochet. I'm using Knit Picks Brava™Sport yarn. I sure hope Son's Friend likes it. I am wondering if he might think I'm going to play Matchmaker or something, haha! angel

This is the guideline I'm using, because I'm not using the star blanket pattern she's using. It's just a guide:

I'm just using brighter colors I saw on another site:

Have a good evening.

He Set Out to Buy a Vacuum...

He came home with a new TV stand. 

And a TV, large TV. 

And spent half the night putting everything together, and removing the old stuff. I had to place my delicate sea shells in the dining room hutch. Nothing broke.

He also came home with the Back to the Future triology, "to break in the new TV" and because, "it's the year 2015!!!"

And yes, Eddie bought a vacuum cleaner. A weird vacuum cleaner that travels on its own about the house, vacuuming by itself. Well well well...


We're now watching the Super Bowl. I like watching the commercials and Eddie makes his living mostly from recording audio for commercials. But our local NBC is transmitting local commercials instead of the Super Bowl ones. Boring. Botheration.

Fearless Boss sent a list of 13 patients and needs their prelims. Well, I can't say 'no' or else I'll be looking for another client very very soon. At least Alex came over and fixed the screen settings on the new TV, which Eddie said he needed to watch the Super Bowl.

He looked so angelic I pretended that I believed his pretending. And then he pretended that my pretending wasn't because he was pretending, so I pretended to believe that, too.

It's That Time of Year Again

...when I take out my slipper socks because the temperature has dipped down enough for them. What temp? Yahoo says it's 78ºF here in my town, and I believe it. I've got my socks, long jeans, short sleeves, but with a crocheted shawl over my shoulders, because it's chilly enough for it. And here are the socks!

If you're into celebrating the new year, then Happy 2015!
