The Drifters were set to record

'Under The Boardwalk' on May 21, 1964.

But the bands lead singer, Rudy Lewis, died the night before from a suspected drug overdose.

They took a vote and decided to go ahead with the recording, even though they were devastated by Lewis' death. Johnny Moore took the lead.

The Recording rose quickly to number one on the charts...and is widely recognized as one of the greatest songs of all time.

If you listen closely, you can hear the sorrow in their voices.

One of the bittersweet things about growing old is realizing how mistaken you were when you were young.

As a young Political leftist, I saw the left as the voice of the common man.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

Thomas Sowell

Our entire educational system

From the elementary schools to the universities, is increasingly turning out people who have never heard enough conflicting arguments..

To develop the skills and discipline required to produce a coherent analysis...

Based on logic and evidence.

Thomas Sowell

The difference between a welfare state and a totalitarian state..

Is a matter of time.

Ayn Rand.

Sonora Louise Smart Dodd, who was the daughter of Civil War Veteran William Jackson Smart.

Is the one most responsible for the celebration of Fathers Day.

She came up with the idea listening to a Sunday Mothers Day sermon in 1909 with her father.

Fathers Day is now celebrated in 30 countries around the world.

The first American City to recognize Fathers Day was her hometown Spokane, Wash. in 1910.

President Woodrow Wilson
made Fathers Day Official in 1916.

Quite a woman.

If one listens to Sidney is struck with how brilliant she is.

She is the Dragonslayer.

Before a tyranny, comes the silencing of discussion.

Before a tyranny comes a
policing of human rights.

Before a tyranny, comes a gaslighting of the weak in mind!

Before a tyranny, comes independent thought being deemed a crime!

Before a tyranny, comes a society drunk on complacency and comfort.

Before a tyranny, the masses are told they can buy freedom with their liberties.

Join us in welcoming @usairforce Chief Master Sgt. Michelle Jackson to Team NRO as the agency's Command Senior Enlisted Leader, which is the highest level of enlisted leadership at the NRO.

the good NRO 😀

So two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman, one carrying Japanese goods, are attacked just as the Japanese Prime Minister Abe is in Iran trying to talk up peace with the Mullahs..

The Iranian leadership is so stupid... it defies understanding.

Perhaps the Germans and the rest of the EU will now wake up.

This smacks so much of desperation.

That wheezing sound you hear out of Tehran is the unmistakable death rattle of a dying regime.

Hope that the Iranian people will soon be free.

Recall how they tormented Eric Trump over his St. Jude Foundation work? Not a peep on Clinton’s tainted blood which spread Hepatitis and AIDS around the world? See the evil?

I just had a guy tell me that I deserve death threats because I wasn't smart enough to use a pen name.

Isn't that special?

It shows how degraded public discourse has become.

When the writer is blamed for the death threats, it means the society is no longer civilized.

Those who cry out that the Government should do something

Never even ask for data for what has actually happened when the Government did something,

Compared to what actually happened when the Government did nothing.

Thomas Sowell.

President Trump had the fortitude to launch a trial balloon despite intense opposition, regarding tariffs, and that balloon is soaring.

At this point, I don't think that Potus cares whether the Chinese make an agreement regarding trade, or not.

If they refuse, as they may in order to save face now, they will be hit with even more tariffs, and the tariffs will stay in effect for a very long time..

It will just lead to increased manufacturing in the US.

Which is the President's ultimate goal.

John Dean on the witness stand getting grilled by Matt Gaetz.

Gaetz: 'Mr. Dean, How much money did you make from book sales."

Dean: " I don't know exactly."

Gaetz: "How much you being paid by CNN, you're on there a lot."

Dean: "I don't know."

Gaetz: "Mr. Dean, I have just received this memo...handed to me by a clerk, and it is addressed to you."

Dean: "What does it say."

Gaetz: "It'says, Greetings from the Internal Revenue Service."

Justin Amash stated he decided to step down from the Freedom Caucus..

That is just a polite way to say that the other Republicans shoved his ass down and elevator shaft....

"As a Surgeon, I have operated on infants pre born.

I can assure you, they are very much alive.."

Dr. Ben Carson.

Bill Gates is hanging out with the Chairman of General Motors...and Gates is bragging profusely, that if Automobile technology had kept up with Computer technology advances over the years...

Cars today could go with V32 engines that traveled 10,000 miles an hour...Cars would weigh 100 pounds and get 1,000 miles per gallon...

In response to all the gloating from Gates...the GM Chairman responded...

"That's all true Bill, but would you want to drive a car that crashes four times a day?"

If A Straight Pride Parade Is Stupid, So Is A Gay Pride Parade

"Personally, I agree with the people who say that the upcoming 'straight pride parade' in Boston is a silly stunt. It's not something that I would have any interest in attending, though I do appreciate the intentional irony of Milo Yiannopolous being named the parade's grand marshal."

So, if I understand correctly... Iranian backed Terrorists were caught stashing THREE TONS....YES THREE TONS... of explosives in London in 2015,

And yet it is only exposed NOW in 2019...

After Potus visit to the UK....

This was supposedly kept secret from the British public and Parliament as well.

And this was after the disastrous Iranian Nuclear Deal was signed.
