Where does the standard for Universal American Healthcare come from? Franklin Roosevelt's Hill-Burton standard. The current "health reform" proposal of President Barack Obama comes no where close to the breakthrough healthcare policy that Roosevelt established in the 1940's, and furthermore, Obama's policy if not defeated will kill more people than the Nazi's did with their "health reform". There are much deeper issues that must be considered in crafting a successful Health Care policy today, issues of mortality, immortality, making decisions based on the future, what is real value versus monetary value and so on. These were the kinds of issues Roosevelt had to confront PERSONALLY, in his near death experience with polio. The discoveries made by Roosevelt in personally overcoming the limitations of his mortality gave him the proper lens through which to situate his identity in the long span of history.

There are seven, compelling reasons NOT to vote for Senator John McCain: 1. McCain was NOT born in the United States. To date, NO US President has ever been elected that was born outside of the United States. History tells us that while there have been candidates, most notably George Romney who was born in Mexico & Barry Goldwater who was born in the Arizona Territory, none have ever been successful in becoming POTUS. John McCain was born in the Panama Canal Zone on Aug 29, 1936 at the Coco Solo Naval Hospital; at the time of McCain's birth it was NOT located within the Canal Zone. (It was later added to the Zone by President Franklin Roosevelt through EXECUTIVE ORDER 8981 on Dec 17, 1941, when McCain was 5 years old.) Therefore John McCain is not a citizen "by birth" or a "natural born Citizen"... 2. McCain's War Hero Status, though highly admired and highly respected by most, is NOT without challenge by Vietnam Veterans... 3. Manchurian Candidate - McCain suffered massive character assassination attacks by Karl Rove and George Bush in South Carolina in 2000. Today, we see a John McCain who is endorsed by none other than George Bush and Karl Rove. In fact, most see McCain as a George Bush "Clone". You could say Senator McCain "has sold his straight-talking, maverick soul" for a shot at becoming the next POTUS... 4. Senator McCain has some skeletons in his closet, accumulated over a 25 year career in the Senate. His most potent skeleton is the "Keating FIVE Scandal" which cost taxpayers over $3 BILLION DOLLARS... (Let Senator Obama try something like that and he would rot in a prison cell) 5. Senator McCain's closest friends make uncomfortable remarks about the zipper on his pants. In McCain's book, he personally refers to some of his escapades in Brazil. The Vicki Iseman episode was quickly brought under control, but one is left to wonder if we will be seeing more "Clintonesque" acts to follow... 6. Taxes and tax breaks: While Senator McCain has been forthcoming with his tax returns, Cindy McCain has been secretive, not going public with her tax returns. What, if anything, could Cindy McCain possibly be hiding? How will the proposed tax cuts for the rich benefit Sen. McCain's wife? Stay tuned for further developments on this one... 7. Religion. Religion. Religion. I said it three times. Once for John Hagee, once for Rod Parsley, and once for Jerry Falwell. This "Holy Trinity" could become his personal Demons... For starters, he's even claiming to be a Baptist instead of an Episcopalian. John McCain grew up Episcopalian. He went to an Episcopalian high school. For at least 15 years, he has been listed as an Episcopalian in authoritative directories such as the Almanac of American Politics and Congressional Quarterly's Politics in America 2008. He told a reporter from McClatchy News Service in June 2007 that he was an Episcopalian. Suddenly, in September 2007, he's campaigning in South Carolina, the heavily Baptist state where George W. Bush barely managed to stop McCain's presidential campaign 8 years ago. And guess what? McCain tells a reporter "By the way, I'm not Episcopalian. I'm Baptist." Reverends Hagee, Parsley and Falwell hold endorsements that McCain coveted, sought and got. Either of these three Pastors alone, but most certainly all three together, makes Reverend Jeremiah Wright seem like a Boy Scout in comparison. The Main Stream Media have closed a blind eye on this one, preferring to "crucify" Senator Obama 24/7 while giving McCain a free ride. Double Standards like this one will be few and far between under the scrutiny of the general election... BONUS TRACK: Age. At age 71, Senator McCain would be the oldest President ever elected for a first term in US History. He has to date declined to make his medical records public. At 71 years of age, this is a legitimate concern of the US public. His infamous temper has been recorded, including a highly celebrated episode of referring to his wife Cindy as a "C*NT"... Imagine such a temper receiving a 3AM phone call on the red phone... (Armageddon) His refusal to release medical records gives fuel to the notion that Senator McCain is hiding something...

The Explorer’s Club is private club that began in Manhattan in 1904. Since its inception members have included everyone from Charles Lindbergh to Neal Armstrong and presidents Teddy Roosevelt, Franklin Roosevelt and Herbert Hoover. The club, which is housed in an old mansion on the Upper East Side, features exotic artifacts from expeditions that have taken place as far away as the moon and a hugely impressive rare book library with over 15,000 volumes on exploration and travel. Members gather at the club a few times a year to swap stories on adventure, plan future expeditions and share presentations of their travels. Since 2009, Lorie Karnath has presided over the club as president. In addition to being a children’s book author and patron of the arts, Lorie has traveled the world extensively in which she has set up a number of programs that help foster creativity, discovery and science. She has led several Explorers Club Flag expeditions, covering some of the Earth’s most remote locations in search of research and answers to some of the world’s most perplexing environmental concerns. Her most recent expedition involved following the migration patterns of white storks, for which she went on to create a German sanctuary. As president of The Explorer’s Club, she’s involved with curating the clubs public events, which are hosted by the likes of astronauts and the world’s most exciting explorers. These events, needless to say, should not be missed by anyone.

Take a tour of Jefferson Memorial in Washington, DC, United States – part of the World’s Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats. The Jefferson Memorial in Washington, D.C. can sometimes be lost among the taller, older monuments in the city. Directly south of the White House on the basin of the Potomac River, this site is dedicated to America's third president, Thomas Jefferson. The memorial was finished around 1943 and dedicated by then-president Franklin Roosevelt. The design took inspiration from the Pantheon and Jefferson's own Rotunda at the University of Virginia. The interior features a bronze statue of Jefferson and quotes from his greatest works, including the Declaration of Independence. The numerous cherry blossom trees around the memorial were dedicated by the Japanese people in 1912. The memorial is open 24 hours a day to the people, who Jefferson lived to serve and save from tyranny.

The 10 most capitalistic countries in the world are Hong Kong, #1, Singapore, #2, New Zealand, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States, tied for #3, Australia and Canada, tied for #7, and Ireland and Luxembourg, tied for #9. The 3 functions of government in a free, capitalistic country are to provide a military force to protect the country from foreign attack, to provide police to protect citizens from assault, arson, fraud, theft, homicide and other common law crimes and to provide courts to administer criminal laws, protect property rights, enforce contracts and settle disputes. A small national sales tax, especially on vices such as liquor, cigarettes and gambling, is used in place of a complex and intrusive income tax. In a free society, all businesses, including schools and post offices, are privately owned. Welfare is handled by churches and private citizens to the maximum extent workable and practical. Capitalism is based on Thomas Jefferson's belief that the government which governs least governs best. Jefferson wrote that the role of government was to "restrain men from injuring one another" and "leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement". Jefferson would have agreed with Ronald Reagan that government is not the solution to the problem, government is the problem. The founding fathers guaranteed political rights to all Americans--the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, the right to own property and to trade freely, the freedoms of religion, speech, press and assembly. Notice that these political rights do not involve the use of force against other members of society. President Franklin Roosevelt in 1941, in his State of the Union address to Congress, introduced what he called a second bill of rights, a so-called economic bill of rights, including--the right to a remunerative job, the right to earn enough to provide adequate food, clothing and recreation, the right to a decent home, the right to adequate medical care, the right to adequate protection from the economic fears of old age, sickness, accident, and unemployment, the right to a good education. Ayn (rhymes with mine) Rand in her book, Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal, explains the fallacy of so-called economic rights and why capitalism is the only just and moral economic system. Education, jobs, homes and health care do not exist in a state of nature. They require human effort and creativity to produce. When someone asserts a right to an education, a job or to health care, the question is: "At whose expense?" Ayn Rand writes: "If some men are entitled by right to the products of the work of others, it means that those others are deprived of rights and condemned to slave labor."..."There can be no such thing as 'the right to enslave'."

Recall that democracy means voting or majority rule. It is a way of selecting leaders, an alternative to hereditary monarchy or military takeover. In a democracy the majority may elect capitalistic leaders such as Thomas Jefferson or Margaret Thatcher, or the majority may elect socialistic leaders such as Adolf Hitler or Serbia's Slobodan Milosevic. Democracy is too often 3 hungry wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for dinner. Unless there are constitutional limits on the power of government which the courts enforce, democracy is often the straightest road to socialism. Democracy has been a primary goal of American foreign policy since World War I. In 1916 President Woodrow Wilson urged America to enter World War I 'to make the world safe for democracy'. In 1940 President Franklin Roosevelt urged America to 'be the great arsenal of democracy'. In 2000, President Clinton mistakenly praised the founding fathers for creating a 'representative democracy'. President Bush has stated that the establishment of democracy in the Middle East is the purpose of the war in Iraq. The founding fathers did not share the opinions of Wilson, Roosevelt, Clinton and Bush about the desirability of democracy. They feared mob rule. They limited the powers of the government and allowed only wealthy landowners who paid taxes to vote. The word 'democracy' does not appear in the Constitution, the Bill of Rights or the Declaration of Independence. The new government was considered a constitutional republic, not a democracy. Samuel Adams, a leader of the American Revolution, wrote: 'Democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts and murders itself. There was never a democracy that did not commit suicide.'" Alexander Hamilton of New York said: 'We are a republican government. Real liberty is never the extremes of democracy....The ancient democracies in which the people themselves deliberated never possessed one good feature of government. Their very character was tyranny.....' James Madison, considered the primary author of the Constitution, wrote in The Federalist: '.....democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security, or the rights of property.....' The founding fathers believed that property rights would not endure if voters could vote themselves benefits from the public treasury. Note the views of leading socialists on the merits of democracy. Karl Marx, author of The Communist Manifesto, wrote: 'Democracy is a form of government that cannot long survive, for as soon as the people learn that they have a voice in the fiscal policies of the government, they will move to vote for themselves all the money in the treasury and bankrupt the nation....The first step in the revolution of the working class is to raise the proletariat to the position of ruling class, to win the battle of democracy.' According to Mao Tse-tung, the 'democratic revolution is the necessary preparation for the socialist revolution, and the socialist revolution is the inevitable sequel to the democratic revolution.' Mikhail Gorbachev, former Soviet leader, wrote in 1987: 'According to Lenin, socialism and democracy are indivisible....We want more socialism and, therefore, more democracy.' Individual rights and limited government are the cause of wealth and prosperity, not democracy or majority rule. It makes no sense for the United States to fight wars around the world for the principle of majority rule. We should advocate liberty and limited government. We should make the United States a shining example of a country that protects individual rights rather than trying to force foreign countries to adopt democracy at the point of a gun. The purpose of our foreign policy should be to protect the United States from attack not to force other countries to adopt democracy, a system that socialists advocate and our founding fathers considered dangerous and tyrannical.

The siege of Malta was between 1940 and 1943 it was one of the most heavily bombed areas during war with a total of 3,000 air raids occurring during the two years of the siege. Killing 1,493 civilians and wounding 3,674. The cost to the military of men aircraft and ships defending and trying to resupply the island were horrendous. One of the Maine reasons for the siege was it was ideally positioned as a base to attack the German and Italian supply lines to north Africa. At one point only one in four supply ships were getting through to Rommel's army significantly contributing to their eventual defeat. On the 15 April 1942 Malta was awarded the George cross by King George V1 the highest civilian award for gallantry in the Commonwealth to honour the brave people of Malta. President Franklin Roosevelt, describing the wartime period, called Malta "one tiny bright flame in the darkness". I have tried to cram as much as I can into this short video but I realise I can't really show all that happened during the siege or really show how badly the civilians and military suffered during this time so I have portrayed the events that stick in my mind such as the air raids, bombing, air battles, the supplying of spitfires by aircraft carriers to the island and the convoys of ships battling their way through to the staving population, and of course the George cross. I was inspired to make this video by talking to ww11 Malta siege veteran leading aircraft man Wilfred Wilson to hear some of his memories go to my web site at *******server.microlite16****/josephs-militaria-and-homefront-collection******/
