In Moot Member Blogs Why My Ancestors Came Entry Tools Rating: 5 Stars!
  #216 New May 13th, 2020 10:05 PM
I spend about 6 months working with my Grandfather delivering propane gas to trailer courts and some houses in northwestern Indiana. We spend quite a bit of time talking in the truck as we drove about and also when we stopped for lunch. We had a regular route, and generally by the time we had the truck parked and were walking in the door, our booth and coffee were waiting for us. My Grandfather was born 3 months after my great-grandparents arrived in the United States from the Netherlands. ...More Read More

When the lockdown started, I told my friends that I thought that people would obey up to a point, and then they would start to rebel and say "enough is enough". I figured that would start occurring around May 1st. Some states started opening up around then, some did not. Now I think that things are starting to hit the snapping point. Businesses are starting to open in defiance of stay-at-home orders, a case in point being Tesla. If Tesla is not shut down, it will be very hard for the State ...More Read More

  #214 New May 9th, 2020 10:25 PM
Tomorrow, on Mother's Day, it will be the 35th anniversary of my making the decision to terminate life support measures for our first son. Hopefully, that will not cast a pall on getting together with my daughter and her husband to celebrate it. We will see, but the weather is not going to be helping, based on the rain mixed with snow forecast. I hate lousy weather on Mother's Day.

I guess some people could argue that after 35 years, it should not trouble me, but then, they have never bee ...More Read More

The following is the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

Quote:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Based on the current plan to reopen Illinois, until some extremely stiff conditions are met, no church larger than 10 to 50 people will be allowed to open fo ...More Read More

I talked with my wife tonight about moving to Indiana. The governor appears to be far more rational than the overfed billionaire we have in Illinois. The state has released a nicely detailed opening plan, including acknowledging that three counties are not ready to reopen yet, with the vast majority of the can reopen. For anyone interested, you can find the plan at the state of Indiana website. It is very well thought out, and has just about everything re-opening by May 23, the three proble ...More Read More

The mayor of New York, who at one time actually was running for the Democratic nomination for President is showing more and more his anti-Semitic leanings. I keep wondering what happens if he actually goes ahead and has several hundred Hasidic Jews arrested and tossed into jail. If that happens, I will be curious to see if the city practices its catch-and-release policy or decides to keep them locked up to punish them for disobeying the mayor. I suspect that they will stayed locked up for as ...More Read More

In Moot Member Blogs Armenian Genocide Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #210 New April 26th, 2020 08:30 PM
A couple of days ago was the commemorative day for the Armenian Genocide attempted by the Turks during World War One. While the Turks fiercely deny that anything took place, the evidence is overwhelming that it did. Just put Armenia into the search of Project Gutenberg, and look at the results. Then do the same at archive.org. There are quite a few people of Armenian descent in my area, including the orthodontist that worked with my two children.

The thing that struck me in going through ...More Read More

Well, I will have to see if either of my two posts to the Pit survive. In one, I dared to mention religion, in the other, I dared to criticize the actions of my state governor. I do not think that he has missed a meal in a decade or two or three. It will be interesting to see how the lawsuit regarding the length of emergency powers plays out. The law does not allow for a whole lot of wiggle room.

Next, why is it that the mayor of Chicago can break stay-at-home orders and get her hair dow ...More Read More

I actually have been thinking about other things besides the country-that-shall-not-be-named virus. I have kept working through the history of the Reformation and the history of the Dark Ages, and added some reading in the history of the Inquisition. The Inquisition history is interesting as it goes into, to start with, the condition of the Medieval and Pre-Reformation Church, giving plenty of sources. The sources are pretty much all Church authors of various rank, protesting against the vic ...More Read More

By virus, I refer to the Chinese Virus, bot did not wish to use it in the title for fear of moderator editing. I also debating adding "Not Traveller Virus", but decided that might get the moderators upset as well. I guess you would say that those thoughts are included in my Odds and Ends.
