” Conformity is the jailer of freedom and the enemy of growth. “
Rob Lowe had some unusual words , from a Hollywood dweller anyway , in support of individual responsibility and “broken government” when he appeared on Meet The Press with David Gregory . Give a listen . It doesn’t amount to a sea change from the usual Leftists in Hollywood but it is a small crack in the dike and very much welcome .
The concept of “person responsibility” , remember that ?
” A former Richard Nixon aide and Republican strategist Roger Stone, 61, said last week that he will publish a book in October which gives evidence that former President Lyndon B. Johnson masterminded the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.The Daily Caller reports that the book is being published in time for the 50-year anniversary of JFK’s assassination.”
” In the upcoming book titled “The Man Who Killed Kennedy – the case against LBJ,” Stone, presenting documentary evidence, attempts to link Johnson with a conspiracy to murder President Kennedy.
He claims that Richard Nixon and Lyndon Johnson had a “documented” relationship with Jack Ruby, the man who killed Lee Harvey Oswald. According to Stone, the relationship dates back years before Ruby, whose real name was Jacob Leon Rubenstein, killed Oswald in the basement of Dallas police headquarters in 1963.”—
” Commercial airline flights started backing up and delayed some travelers Monday, a day after air traffic controllers started going on furlough because of government spending cuts.
Information from the FAA and others showed that flying Sunday was largely uneventful, with most flights on time. There were delays in parts of Florida, but those were caused by thunderstorms.
Mark Duell at the flight tracking website FlightAware said that John F. Kennedy and LaGuardia airports in New York indicated delays due to lower staffing starting late Sunday evening. The FAA website said that flights from Philadelphia and Orlando, Fla., into John F. Kennedy, LaGuardia and Westchester County airports were delayed due to staffing issues.”
As you are waiting in line , perhaps as much as 4 hours , you can take solace in the fact that , as bad as the sequestration cuts are , our dear leader is still able to maintain the lifestyle to which he , Michelle and the girls have become accustomed to . Hope & Change in the flesh …
” On January 9, 1913, Richard Milhous Nixon was born inside a bedroom of his family’s modest Yorba Linda, California, house. On the 100th anniversary of the birth of America’s 37th president, explore 10 surprising facts about the only U.S. president to resign from office.
1. Lee Harvey Oswald may have plotted to assassinate Nixon.
In the early morning of November 22, 1963, Richard Nixon rode through Dallas to the airport to fly home after attending a Pepsi-Cola board meeting. Nixon saw the preparations for the motorcade that hours later would carry John F. Kennedy, the man who defeated him for the presidency three years prior, on the streets of the city’s downtown. After Nixon landed in New York, he learned that Kennedy had been gunned down in that motorcade. In a further coincidence, the wife of Lee Harvey Oswald testified to the Warren Commission that in April 1963 the alleged assassin read a local newspaper report, tucked a pistol in his belt, and told her, “Nixon is coming. I want to go and have a look.” After locking him in a bathroom, Oswald’s wife convinced him to turn over his gun. The account was puzzling, since Nixon was not in Dallas in April 1963 and no newspaper mentioned any visit. “
