The 1791 Thinkshop and 87 Ideas Workshop

Front door for the secondhalf of my life using my time while disabled to become a book reviewer, editor, and blogger……. Advocating for Liberty and Veterans who suffer with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Severe Memory Impairment, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumas, and those with Crohn's Disease and Seizure Disorder. Of course too I may muster the courage to begin my Scale Models again but fight tremor so bad that it maybe something best to just hang up and sell off. I've lost nearly every enjoyable skill and struggle with the idea of "doing it at all if I can't do so to the ability I once had". I'm most busy with doctors appointments and maintaining my 120 Year Old House, My Shop, Ranting, Retirement, and More… This blog was begun right before my health, career, and entire life's direction was wildly changed, so though the page is 5+ years old, it is bare boned.


Thoughts Over My Morning Coffee

AFTER FLIGHT 77 hit the Pentagon on 9/11, the following incident occurred:

AFTER FLIGHT 77 hit the Pentagon on 9/11, the following incident occurred:A chaplain, who happened to be assigned to the Pentagon, told of an incident that never made the news. A daycare facility inside the Pentagon had many children, including infants who were in heavy cribs. The daycare supervisor, looking at all the children they needed to evacuate, was in a panic over what they could do. There were many children, mostly toddlers, as well as the infants that would need to be taken out with the cribs.

There was no time to try to bundle them into carriers and strollers. Just then a young Marine came running into the center and asked what they needed. After hearing what the center director was trying to do, he ran back out into the hallway and disappeared. The director thought, “Well, here we are, on our own.”

About 2 minutes later, that Marine returned with 40 other Marines in tow. Each of them grabbed a crib with a child, and the rest started gathering up toddlers. The director and her staff then helped them take all the children out of the center and down toward the park near the Potomac.

Once they got about 3/4 of a mile outside the building, the Marines stopped in the park, and then did a fabulous thing – they formed a circle with the cribs, which were quite sturdy and heavy, like the covered wagons in the Old West. Inside this circle of cribs, they put the toddlers, to keep them from wandering off. Outside this circle were the 40 Marines, forming a perimeter around the children and waiting for instructions. There they remained until the parents could be notified and come get their children.

The chaplain then said, “I don’t think any of us saw nor heard of this on any of the news stories of the day. It was an incredible story of our men there.” There wasn’t a dry eye in the room. The thought of those Marines and what they did and how fast they reacted; could we expect any less from them? It was one of the most touching stories from the Pentagon. It’s the Military, not the politicians that ensures our right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. It’s the Military who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag. If you care to offer the smallest token of recognition and appreciation for the military, please pass this on and pray for our men and women, who have served and are currently serving our country, and pray for those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for freedom.

Morning thoughts over coffee (28 Aug 2014

My thoughts this morning:

Ok, first see the President speaking to the Veterans of Foreign Wars.

The man pauses expecting applause -vs- pausing anticipating applause. He won’t fire anyone, they just disappear like Seals, but I don’t think it’s his speech writers. Valerie Jarrett controls that; and well the POTUS is his narrascistic self. When your running a government that ignores laws it doesn’t like, interjects into state matters, avoids it’s own, and creates regulation or executive orders where the laws they desire do not already exist; it does not matter what the legislature does. Unfortunately the left believes the legislature is the biggest problem here. If the legislature would abandon lawmaking completely and just conduct and prosecute oversight for the remainder of the term, the healing or at least a tourniquet might be placed on the Constitutional Crisis we are wallowing in while still conducting actions on the world and domestic stage. The IRS scandal alone has the potential to call into sterile question the very validity of the reelection and the POTUS’ second term! Now I don’t want an overturning (not the kind that wishes ill on our nation’s fabric; impeachment not withstanding as it’s provided for in the previous)…. I want what’s best to preserve our constitution, but I remain baffled as to why there is not a full blown uprising of at least 5% if our population. I’m not suggesting the use of Liberty Trees or Boston Tea Party’s; but certainly the people and Congress should take an active and tireless action to say the crap stops now and we’ll use every tool of suopeana, arrest, and impeachment of those involved (Low Information Voters: impeachment doesn’t just apply to the POTUS). Absent, the very fabric of our nation is in danger of being ripped from the top as in David’s Temple if not irreparable already. More Americans have probably read Harry Potter or Fifty Shades of Grey than have The Federalist Papers and are sadly cows in the sight of the Alinsky engineered narrative and news cycle. It’s as though there is no self respect.

Ok, off to enjoy my day
