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

"useful idiots" to set up a communist dictatorship which gained
totalitarian control over some 293 million people across 11 time zones.
naive students that thought communism would redistribute wealth
equally, President Franklin Roosevelt told the American Youth Congress,
February 10, 1940:
"The Soviet Union...is 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,
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..."
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.
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!
