While it can perform many of the functions of a PC or Mac, Apple’s iPad— including the new iPad 2—lacks two of the most common and frequently used features of a traditional computer. It has no standard USB port for connecting a flash drive or external hard disk, so you can’t move files into and out of it from these devices. And it doesn’t have a systemwide, user-accessible file system like those on traditional computers.
The iPad lacks a USB port and can’t accept a flash drive or external hard disk. So how do you get your files on it? Walt Mossberg gives a primer for retreiving Microsoft Office files or Adobe PDFs from a computer or cloud services.
These omissions have led many readers to ask me how you get files—especially Microsoft Office files and PDFs—into and out of iPads. They have bolstered the contention that the popular tablet is really just a “consumption device,” not a productivity tool.
So, here’s a brief primer on how to get such documents into and out of an iPad, and how to view, edit and create them on the tablet. This isn’t an in-depth product review, though I’ve tested every product and method I will mention here. It’s merely a quick, practical guide to how to work with documents on an iPad.

Most of us who believe in the free enterprise system have been taught that business interests normally work to the betterment of America’s overall health, both commercially and politically. While there might have been a time when this was true, it is definitely not true today. Not only has Big Business become unfriendly to the principles of freedom, it has also become freedom’s greatest threat.
To say that Corporate America is America’s greatest threat is a harsh accusation, but one that I believe is warranted. I will even be so bold as to say that freedom has much more to fear from today’s Chambers of Commerce than it does from Al Qaida.
Today’s Americans need to carefully heed the sage counsel of Thomas Jefferson, who said, “Merchants have no country. The mere spot they stand on does not constitute so strong an attachment as that from which they draw their gains.” The truth of that statement aptly explains the serious damage that Big Business is currently inflicting upon our liberties.
Someone rightly observed that one can determine the focus of, and influence upon, societies by analyzing its architecture. For example, from the founding of Jamestown in 1607 through the beginning of the War for Southern Independence, the most notable buildings (in most communities) belonged to churches. From the mid-nineteenth century to the mid-twentieth century, the most prominent buildings belonged to various governments. From the mid-twentieth century to the present, the biggest, most lavish, and most notable buildings belong to Big Business. This is not accidental or coincidental. These buildings are the monuments of men to the ideas that mean the most to them. Accordingly, a vast number of today’s Americans have come to worship at the shrine of Big Business.
However, this idolatry comes at great price. Not the least of which is the way we have allowed Big Business interests to virtually control governmental policy, including our war and defense policies.
For example, I recently obtained a copy of the U.S. Navy’s “Playbook.” This Playbook succinctly summarizes the Department of the Navy‘s policies and guidelines, and is made available to naval officers and to public affairs professionals. Under the section entitled “Vision” it states, “Americans secure at home and abroad; sea and air lanes open and free for the peaceful and productive movement of international commerce; enduring national and international naval relationships that remain strong and true; steadily deepening cooperation among the maritime forces of emerging partner nations . . .”
Notice the emphasis of “international commerce,” “international naval relations,” and “emerging partner nations.”
Two-time No. 1 New York Times bestselling author Jerome Corsi, a Ph.D. in political science from Harvard and a senior staff writer at WND, has written a new book that promises to be a game-changer on the issue of Barack Obama’s eligibility.
It’s called “Where’s the Birth Certificate? The Case that Barack Obama is Not Eligible to Be President.”
The result of more than two years of solid investigative research by Corsi and a team of WND reporters and editors, this book is destined to be a huge bestseller and change the dynamics of the debate over eligibility – IF, of course, the book is not spiked by the hostile establishment media when it is officially released in May.
Advance orders for this book from retailers across the U.S. already suggest it will be Corsi’s third No. 1 New York Times bestseller – probably bigger than the previous two.
“Imagine how that will change the character of the debate on this critical constitutional issue,” says Joseph Farah, editor and chief executive officer of WND and WND Books, the publisher of “Where’s the Birth Certificate?” “Therefore, we have a strategy for promoting this book far and wide – going right over the heads of the hopelessly biased and politically correct press. But we need your help to pull it off.”
A series of television ads are now in production to ensure this book cannot be spiked by the Big Media. WND needs to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars to air these commercials on television networks and stations throughout the country.

Gunny G: HOW DID WE GET HERE????? ~ Alan Stang Makes It All So Clear… « ~ The GUNNY “G” BLOG & E-MAIL ~
Again, how did we get here? We got here because four remarkable things happened in the Nineteenth Century, all designed to disempower God. They are the introduction of Communism by Marx and his disciples; the creation of Charles Darwin’s silly theory of evolution; the destruction of the Union by Lincoln and his Communists, replacing it with a total government in which the states are mere subsidiaries; and the capture of mainstream Christianity by the heretical idea that man is smart enough to overrule God. Satan was the first to believe that.
The basic principle of Communism of course is atheism. The Communists say God doesn’t run things; they do. There is no God. Man is supreme. Man can create a heaven on earth far superior to God’s version (the Kingdom of Heaven). But, guess what? Only God can handle being God!
Everyone else who tries to be God has gone crazy. That is what the record shows. Every one! In Kipling’s story, The Man Who Would Be King couldn’t even handle being king, much more God. In Rome, the emperors went crazy merely pretending to be one of many gods. Look at crazy Caligula. Remember, we are talking history here, not religion.
History shows that being God goes to a man’s head. Because God can do anything for His own pleasure, a man who would be God thinks so can he, and that whatever he does is right because he does it. To make heaven on earth, he mass murders millions. He justifies every excess in the belief that he is “God.”
International Socialists Stalin and Mao did that. National Socialist Hitler did that. But remember that Hitler got his ideas on the subject from the United States, which pioneered the concept of mass eugenicide. Now that competition from Hitler has been eliminated, mini-gods here are arguing again about eliminating huge chunks of the earth’s population. The only thing they argue about is how many people should be killed. No doubt they consider Hitler a pipsqueak.

which shook Marine Corps training from top to bottom. Moreover, an
uninterrupted flood of publicity by the press, radio, and television literally
divided the entire country into two opposing camps, those who condemmed McKeon
for what had happened and those who sympathized with him.
It was in this glare of public gaze that McKeon’s court-martial began at
Parris Island on 16 July 1956. A noted New York trial counsel, Emile Zola
Berman, undertook the sergeant’s defense before the military court. For three
weeks, the battle ebbed and flowed, concerned as much with the propriety of
the rationale and practices of Marine Corps training as with McKeon’s
responsibility for the Ribbon Creek affair. Witnesses came forward to defend
Marine training, others came forth to condemn it.
The defense presentation
culminated in the appearance on the stand of retired Lieutenant General Lewis
B. Puller and the Commandant of the Marine Corps himself.
Finally, on 4 August 1956, the court handed down its decision: McKeon
was acquitted of charges of manslaughter and oppression of troops; he was
found guilty of negligent homicide and drinking on duty. The sentence was a
fine of $270, nine months confinement at hard labor as a private and a
bad-conduct discharge from the Marine Corps. Upon review by the Secretary of
the Navy, the sentence was reduced to three months hard labor and reduction to
the rank of private; the discharge was set aside and the fine remitted.
Having already served part of his term prior to sentencing, McKeon…………………
Bageant Moves On
We don’t last, and there’s no warranty.
March 27, 2011
This will mean little perhaps to those who do not know Joe Bageant, but I write it for those who do. Or want to, which makes sense.
Jocotepec, Mexico–Joe lived awhile down the lake. We would visit him of an afternoon, Vi and I, and find him, a bear of a man, bearded mountain Buddha, writing on the porch of his one-room place in Ajijic. Always he wore his old fishing vest, in which I suspect he was born, and sometimes he carried a small laptop in one of its pockets. Usually we adjourned to the living room, which was also the bedroom, dining room, and salon. He would fetch bottles of local red, or make the jalapeño martinis he invented—there was a bit of mad chemist in him—and we would talk for hours of art, music, the news, politics, and people. Especially people. Sometimes he grabbed one of the guitars from the wall and sang blues, at which he was good.. I guess growing up dirt poor in West Virginia puts that kind of music in you.
Joe could fool you. He talked slow and Southern, lacked pretensions, and you could talk to him for weeks without realizing how very damned smart he was.

At least three White House advisors and officials, including President Obama’s regulatory czar, Cass Sunstein, have ties to an effort funded by billionaire George Soros to push for a new, “progressive” U.S. Constitution.
WND first reported last week that Sunstein’s wife, Samantha Power, has been a champion of a Soros-funded doctrine, entitled “responsibility to protect,” which was used by Obama to justify engaging in an international military alliance to bomb Libya. As the National Security Council special adviser to Obama on human rights, Power reportedly influenced Obama in his decision.
Now it has emerged that Sunstein has maintained extensive ties to Soros’ funding, particularly with regard to a movement that openly seeks to create a “progressive” consensus as to what the U.S. Constitution should provide for by the year 2020.
Also, Attorney General Eric Holder sat on the board of a Soros-funded group pushing the same “progressive” constitution.
Autographed! Get the book that finally exposes Obama and his team of anti-American radicals: Aaron Klein’s “The Manchurian President” at WND’s Superstore
WND has learned that in April 2005, Sunstein opened up a conference at Yale Law School entitled, “The Constitution in 2020,” which sought to change the nature and interpretation of the Constitution by that year.
That event was sponsored by Soros’ Open Society Institute as well as by the Center for American Progress, which is led by John Podesta, who served as co-chair of Obama’s presidential transition team. Podesta’s Center is said to be highly influential in helping to craft White House policy.
The Yale event on the Constitution was also sponsored by the American Constitution Society, or ACS, which has been described as a group meant to counter the work of the Federalist Society, which has been at the forefront of the push for a more conservative judiciary since its launch in 1982.
The ACS is the main organization behind the movement to ensure a more “progressive” constitution, having received more that $2,201,500 from Soros’ Open Society since 2002.
Attorney General Holder served on the ACS board of directors.

However, Trump’s comments, made most recently in an exclusive interview with Newsmax.TV, also garnered support from those who wonder why Obama has not supplied documentation of where he was born.
As for the critics, Brian Lowry of Variety got personal. “More than anything, Trump looks like a buffoon — an egomaniac hopelessly addicted to the spotlight, floating the prospect of a presidential run to a gullible media to boost interest in himself and ‘Celebrity Apprentice,’” Lowry wrote on the magazine’s website.
“Moreover, he seems in complete denial about the fact that his NBC show crested some time ago. Seriously, 8 million viewers or so is ‘through the roof?’ Only if the ceiling is about three inches above your head.”
David Weigel of Slate magazine took up Trump’s challenge to show him a photo of Obama as a child. “I’ve seen 14-year-old,” Trump said. “I’ve seen 13-year-old. I haven’t seen early pictures.” Weigel’s column includes a photo of Obama as a child that appeared on the cover of Time magazine in 2008.
Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie, a friend of Obama’s parents in Hawaii who said he remembers when the future president was born, first vowed to produce an original copy of the president’s birth certificate this year.
But he abandoned those efforts because it is against state law to release private documents, CNN quoted his spokeswoman as saying.

BREAKING: Pacifex 11 Linked to Asian Earthquake
For those who dare not ask for themselves!
By Captain Eric H. May
HOUSTON, 3/27/11 — For the second time in the last four years, the training scenario of an in-progress, high-level U.S. disaster drill has actually occurred in Myanmar, the Indochina rice bowl that has irked international investors with its anti-globalist economic policies.
Three researchers sent me emails yesterday, the sum of which is that the former Burma probably suffered a punitive geowar attack. I render them to my reader with this earnest counsel:
“In the 1970′s the U.S. signed the Environmental Modification Treaty banning the use of tectonic weapons, but how would the public know if it were now being broken? In 2007, when the infamous HR 1955 was floating around Congress, the Simon Wiesenthal Center specified which issues they wanted people to shut their mouths about. These were:
“I pay close attention to ‘conspiracy theories,’ but never heard the one about Sumatra until it was brought up in the HR 1955 hearings. It was a big issue in the Middle East, though, which is spot-on about other issues. Fast forward to the Haiti earthquake, which Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez said the U.S. caused.
“Now we have the earthquake/tsunami in Japan, which has the third strongest economy in the world, followed by its WW II partner, Germany. I would not be surprised to see a misfortune happen in Germany soon as well.”
TWO – Brother Shahid Allah, an eight-year veteran of Ghost Troop, sent me 6.8-Magnitude Quake Strikes NE Myanmar, to which I replied:
‘Salaam, Brother Allah! I strongly suspect that this was tectonic warfare, neatly coinciding with the second day of earthquake/tsunami drill PACIFEX 11, the subject of my article Tsunamis Today, 323, Worry Watchers.
“This isn’t the first strong case for a geowar attack against the country. On May 2, 2008, it was slammed by category-four Cyclone Nargis on the second day of U.S. National Level Exercise 2-08, which was then simulating a category-four storm. I wrote a article about it for the Iconoclast, Storms and Quakes: Weapons of War?:
“Whatever momentous event may happen in the future, you can count on the media to tell it wrong, and to label those who tell it right ‘conspiracy theorists.’ That’s the nature of information in evil times, when you have to move heaven and earth to get the truth out.”
“I watched the following video of nuclear scientist Leuren Moret, who offers invaluable insights on the 3/11/11 earthquake-tsunami-nuclear catastrophe. Here’s an introduction:
‘In 2004 Leuren Moret wrote Japan’s Deadly Game of Nuclear Roulette in the Japan Times, unmasking the lies and distortions by government and industry officials that led to nuclear power plants built in unstable areas. On March 20, in an exclusive 65-minute video interview with Alfred Webre, she declared that the 3/11/11 Japan earthquake and ‘accidents’ at Fukushima’s six nuclear power plant units were in fact deliberate acts of tectonic and nuclear warfare against Japan.
“52 minutes into the video, Moret suggests that Space Shuttle Discovery was a forward observer for a HAARP attack on Japan. I wonder whether she read your False Flag Space Shuttle, posted in February, in which you gave an early warning that the shuttle might target nuclear reactors.

Speaking Del Quentin Wilbur, author, Rawhide, re the assassination attack on Ronald Reagan in March 1981 by the sad-eyed Hinckley, and how lucky it was that Secret Agent Jerry Parr not only shoved POTUS Reagan into the car but also made the judgment call to divert to George Washington Hospital rather than return to the White House. Without that decision, done instinctively by Parr even absent certain evidence that the president had been wounded, the result would have been catastrophe. The book is a moment-by-moment recounting of the details from many points of view, including that of the sorrowful Hinckley. It is surprising to learn how near Reagan was to death. What a dark difference the death of Ronald Reagan would have made to the history of the Cold War and to the success of the United States in the 20th century. The alternative universe is where the Russians win the first round, Red Dawn.
ak 47 Pictures, Images and Photos
“The Fast and the Furious” was a gun-running program that allowed thousands of AK-47‘s to enter Mexico from the United States ostensibly to allow tracking of their movements. At the same time it allows the AK-47′s to go into Mexico, it is the policy of this administration to arm border patrol agents with bean bags as their first line of defense against AK-47′s.
Such policy got border patrol Brian Terry agent killed in December. Terry was killed with one of the assault rifles that this administration sent into Mexico.
As I noted previously, at first this administration denied that it was policy to arm border patrol agents with bean bags to fight AK’s.
That turned out to be false.
Under fire for an operation that allowed smuggling of U.S. weapons across the nation’s border with Mexico, President Obama said in an interview that neither he nor Attorney General Eric Holder authorized the controversial “Operation Fast and Furious.”
This is the same Obama who called John McCain “naive and irresponsible.”
“If they want a debate about protecting the United States of America, that’s a debate I’m ready to win because George Bush and John McCain have a lot to answer for.” He blamed Bush for policies that enhance the strength of terrorist groups such as Hamas and “the fact that al-Qaida’s leadership is stronger than ever because we took our eye off the ball in Afghanistan.”
Obama is always quick to point out the failings of others yet is lightning fast to duck responsibility.
But Eric Holder did know about it.
US Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano denied having previous knowledge of the operations, while Attorney General Eric Holder admitted to knowing of the ATF’s gun-tracking tactics, but called cross-border gun-trafficking “not acceptable”.
It’s “not acceptable” but apparently he did not put an end to it. If such an operation was “not acceptable” why did Holder not find out who authorized it and do so immediately?
None of these denials seem plausible. And here is the million dollar question:
(Excerpt) Read more at floppingaces.net…
In two generations we have gone from General Patton telling his troops to grease their tanks with the enemy’s guts to an extensive purge of Navy command officers over a series of raunchy video skits. Slowly but surely we are turning the greatest armed forces into the world, into the most politically correct disarmed forces the world has ever seen.
The USS Enterprise crackdown, like the firing of General McChrystal and the push to repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell“, completely ignore military realities for political objectives. A political military is also a useless military. Stalin‘s purges of the Russian Army‘s commanders left the Soviet Union completely unprepared for the Nazi attack. And the US military is being shaped along the same lines into a political military overseen by men whose chief credential is that they share the same politics as the politicians whom they serve.
A congressional report now says that the US military has too many white males at the top. Women are being kept out of the highest ranks because they lack combat experience. The report calls on the military leadership to “better reflect the racial, ethnic and gender mix of American society”. Which is code for affirmative action. If we didn’t have enough incompetents at the top, we can look forward to an affirmative action military in which the generals will be there because of the color of their skin or their gender, not because they’re the best at what they do.
A new day is emerging and it’s called America’s Second Revolution where the Constitution is, once again, the law of the land. No more free ride, no more anchor babies, no more collecting welfare without doing something for it (school crossing guard, picking up litter, etc.), no more showing up for a government job to just sit around and talk about pensions, and no more people allowed across our borders whose aim is to implement Sharia Law.
No more foreign aid to countries that do not support us. Not one cent of protection money to any Muslim country. No more training foreign troops in our military just so they can go back home to fight us. And as far as manufacturers of weapons here in the U.S.A., the free ride is over. You will fill out every export form, cross every ’t’ and dot every ‘i’. You will not be selling even one B.B. to any Muslim country.
Mr. Galles also noted that: “One of the most insightful of the Antifederalists was Robert Yates, a New York judge who, as a delegate to the Constitutional Convention, withdrew because the convention was exceeding its instructions. Yates wrote as Brutus in the debates over the Constitution. Given his experience as a judge, his claim that the Supreme Court would become a source of almost unlimited federal over-reaching was particularly insightful.”
As Brutus, he observed that the Supreme Court, as envisioned under the Constitution, would end up becoming a source of growing abuse because they were beyond the control of both legislatures and ordinary citizens and they were in no way subject to being “corrected by any power above them.”
“Brutus argued that when constitutional grounds for making rules were absent, the Court would create grounds ‘by their own decisions.’ He thought that the power it would command would be so irresistible that the judiciary would use it to make law, manipulating the meanings of arguably vague clauses to justify it.” (Galles)
That being the case, the Court could then proceed to interpret the Constitution according to the “spirit” of the law rather than the letter of the law. Looking at some of the “decisions” the Supreme Court has handed down in our lifetime, can anyone seriously doubt the concerns Robert Yates had? In fact, if anything, his concerns would today have to be labeled as “optimistic” because, in his day, he could have had no concept of just how far the Court would go in promoting the agendas of radical, activist judges who would shamelessly promote their version of what they wished the Constitution really said. I can remember Joseph Sobran, writing on this subject years ago when he noted that the Court has found many “enumerated penumbras” in the Constitution that justified abortion. Many will ask “What’s a penumbra?” For want of being able to explain it legally I will note that it is nothing more than a judicial version of “seeing through a glass darkly.” The lawyers see “rights” there that are never spelled out anywhere, except in their own minds. One might almost be led to ask that if these activist judges see such imaginary “rights” in the Constitution in their minds, have they, in fact, become “legends in their own minds?”

I doubt you will see this chart in the mainstream media any time soon… if EVER. This is a chart of the US monetary base. In simple terms, it charts how much money the Fed has pumped into the system (at least that it admits). So it’s a kind of visual of the Fed hitting the PANIC button: when the monetary base explodes higher, the Fed is FREAKING out. You’ll note that during the Financial Crisis the Fed didn’t do much until the autumn of 2008 when it pumped nearly $1 trillion into the system. Think about that, the Fed didn’t go nuts pumping money until the stuff REALLY hit the fan. You’ll also note that there’s only one other time when the monetary base went absolutely vertical: TODAY. Indeed, the Fed has pumped nearly $500 billion into the system since the start of 2011. Don’t even try to tell me this is QE 2. If it was then the monetary base should have spiked in late 2010, NOT in 2011. No, this is the Fed FREAKING OUT about the financial system again. And it’s a freak out on par with 2008. So if you think that all is well “behind the scenes” you’re in for a rude surprise. Something BIG is going down and it’s NOT good. And rest assured, by the time the mainstream media announces what it is, it will already be in full swing. Prepare Now!

What is Building 7?
Building 7 was a 47-story skyscraper that was part of the World Trade Center complex. It would have been the tallest high-rise in 33 states. It collapsed at 5:20 pm on September 11, 2001. It was not hit by an airplane and suffered minimal damage compared to other buildings much closer to the Twin Towers.

Just my opinion, I have never seen anyone question the “points” on the Gung Ho Cap until the last few years. I suppose by “points” you boots are referring to the uppermost sewn-up portion of the headgear.
The old utility cap (called a Gung Ho Cap by my DIs) had no “points,” the first ones (WW II) actually were pretty floppy and had a longer bill (visor).
About 1953, the Corps came out w/the new non-HBT dungarees, and shortly after, the cap w/the sewn top appeared.
<>About that time, there had been a company called Ken Nolan, Inc….based in San Clemente if I recall correctly. (Ken Nolan was said to have been a former Marine S/Sgt–whether retired/discharged, I don’t know).
<>He had a number of items sold in the PX at that time at Pendleton. Most common was the Stripe-Rite Kit–a plastic two-piece box w/stencils cut into it from Pfc to M/Sgt. The sleeve of the dungaree jacket could be fixed within the two pieces and your stripes stenciled w/either a brush-n-ink, or a “stencil-pencil,” an affair that looked like a cross between a tube for toothpaste w/ponted end, and a magic marker.
<>Marines had previously just drawn the stripes onto their dungarees freehand–but most of the jobs really looked like hell. Some of the Bn Supply shops had also made up some stripe stencils same way they had for the names, MSNs stenciled on the backs of dungaree jackets, trousers, mount out gear, etc. The Ken Nolan stencil kit put an end, almost, to the crappy looking chevrons on dungarees.

“the Constitutional Convention of 1787 was in fact an illegal coup d’état” ~ Conspiracy in Philadelphia by Gary North
The book’s thesis is, even for me, controversial. I provide 400+ pages of evidence that the Constitutional Convention of 1787 was in fact an illegal coup d’état. The participants knew this. This is why they took a lifetime oath of secrecy, walked upstairs to the second floor of the State House (so that eavesdroppers could not report what was going on), closed the doors, and hammered out the design for a replacement government. Newspaper reporters were excluded.
These men had been authorized by Congress and by several state legislatures only to revise the Articles of Confederation (1781), but not replace them. Knowing full well that they planned to replace the Articles with a new form of government, the leaders of the Convention nevertheless agreed to the terms laid down by the state legislatures, and then went off to Philadelphia to begin the first stage of a political revolution.
The story of this second American revolution is not told in the public school textbooks or in the “Christian America” seminars that are dear to the hearts of Christian home schoolers.
But what about Verna Hall’s book, A Christian History of the Constitution? Its documentation ends in 1774. It is also worth noting that the book was edited by her colleague, Joseph Montgomery, who was a Christian Scientist. Why did he edit it? Because Miss Hall was a Christian Scientist at the time she began compiling her book. I discuss this little-known background in my book.
In 1787, the states, with one exception (Rhode Island), were explicitly based on faith in God. In most cases, elected state representatives were required to swear their belief in the Trinity. The new Constitution made all such oaths illegal for Federal office (Article VI, Clause III). By means of the 14th Amendment (1868), the U.S. Supreme Court has applied this prohibition to state governments, completing the transformation in the case of Torcasso v. Watkins (1961).
I told this story 15 years ago. In response, the silence has been deafening. The “Christian America” promoters have steadfastly avoided any reference to my 1989 book. So, I decided to create a stand-alone volume, add more documentation, put a title on it that might break through this wall of silence, and give it away.

“Lee did come to understand – too late. He said after the war that had he known at the beginning what he had since found out, he would have fought to the last man” ~ REPUBLICAN PARTY, RED FROM THE START by Alan Stang « ~ The GUNNY “G” BLOG & E-MAIL ~
By that time, these Communists from Europe had thoroughly infiltrated this country, especially the North. Many became high ranking officers in the Union Army and top government officials.
Down through the decades, Americans have wondered about Yankee brutality in that war. Lee invaded the North, but that sublime Christian hero forbade any forays against civilians. Military genius Stonewall Jackson stood like a stone wall and routed the Yankees at Manassas, but when Barbara Frietchie insisted on flying the Yankee flag in Frederick, Maryland, rather than the Stars and Bars, that sublime Christian hero commanded, according to John Greenleaf Whittier, “‘Who touches a hair of yon gray head/Dies like a dog! March on!’ he said.”
But the Yankees, invading the South, were monsters, killing, raping and destroying civilian property. In one Georgia town, some 400 women were penned in the town square in the July heat for almost a week without access to female facilities. It got worse when the Yankee slime got into the liquor. Some two thousand Southern women and children were shipped north to labor as slaves. Didn’t you learn that in school?
Sherman’s scorched earth March to the Sea was a horror the later Nazis could not equal. Why? Because the Yankees hated Negro slavery so much? There can be no doubt that the already strong Communist influence in the North, combined with that of the maniacal abolitionists, was at least one of the main reasons. Slavery was a tardy excuse, an afterthought they introduced to gain propaganda traction.
In retrospect, it appears that because nothing like this had ever happened here, Lee and Jackson did not fully comprehend what they were fighting. Had this really been a “Civil” War, rather than a secession, they would and could easily have seized Washington after Manassas and hanged our first Communist President and the other war criminals. Instead they went home, in the mistaken belief that the defeated Yankees would leave them alone. Lee did come to understand – too late. He said after the war that had he known at the beginning what he had since found out, he would have fought to the last man.
The White House website proudly says ‘President Obama is committed to creating the most open and accessible administration in American history.’ But try telling Vice President Joe Biden’s staff that, after they held a local reporter in a closet for hours after he was invited to cover a Florida political fundraiser because they did not want him talking with the guests.
As the unaware $500-a-head invitees dined on caprese crostini with oven-dried mozzarella and basil, rosemary flatbread with grapes honey and gorgonzola cheese, grilled chicken Caesar and garden vegetable wraps, veteran reporter Scott Powers was locked away.
The Orlando Sentinel reporter was ushered into the closet inside wealthy property developer Alan Ginsburg’s Winter Falls mansion, after being told that Joe Biden and Senator Bill Nelson had not yet arrived. They were due to speak to the audience to raise money for the 2012 elections.

WHO RAISED THAT FLAG ON IWO JIMA?
(The following is from the book, Iwo Jima…, by Marling/Wetenhall) The answer may surprise even long-time Marines who think they know their Marine Corps history…)
“…on February 24 when Schrier was notified, “Request you designate one member group of flag raisers report aboard Eldorado (AGC 11) early morning 25 February.Purpose news broadcast.
Schrier sent his second in command of the original patrol–PltSgt Ernest Ivy “Boots” Thomas.
At 0430 the next morning, Thomas found himself aboard the ship in the presence of Admiral Turner and General Howlin’ Mad” Smith. He was then interviewed by Don Pryor of CBS, who, microphone in hand, introduced him as “a modest but tough 20-year old fighting man from Tallahassee,” leader of the Marine platoon that captured Suribachi, “the first American in history who has ever raised Old Glory over a part of the Japanese Empire.”
A stunned pause. “No, Mr. Pryor,” Thomas interjected, “I don’t want to give that impression. The honor belongs to every man in my platoon. Three of us actually raised the flag–Lieutenant Harold G. Schrier, our company executive officer, Sergeant H.O. Hansen of Boston, and myself. But the rest of the men had just as big a part in it as we did.”
Thomas continued to point out that although he felt “mighty proud,” he did not consider himself a hero, or that he had done anything that the others hadn’t also done.”
