Decoration Day

By Tammy Derouin

As we approach Memorial Day, I wanted to revisit the history of the holiday. What began as a look back, quickly turned into hours of reading. I began to get sidetracked as one date and event led to another. History provides answers and reminds us of the reasons we are free. Had it not been for those who came before us, and those who sacrificed their lives, we would not have the freedom we have today.

Memorial Day was originally known as Decoration Day. It began in the years following the end of Civil War. The Civil War began when the Confederates attacked Fort Sumter, South Carolina on April 12, 1861. It ended when Robert E. Lee surrendered the Confederate army to Ulysses S. Grant at Appomattox Courthouse on April 9, 1865.

A great divide was taking place in the years leading up to the War Between the States. Several issues such as the moral conflict over slavery, the argument of states' rights and the authority of the federal government over the states, as well as the feeling that the South's 'way of life' was being infringed upon, were all coming to a head. Families and friends became enemies as tensions mounted. The great divide would cause brother to stand against brother, neighbor against neighbor and countrymen against countrymen.......

"Employment law expert gives advice on what bosses should do to help workers who observe Ramadan
Ramadan is now underway but how exactly do people in the workplace cope with a month of fasting?
It can't be easy to go without food and drink in offices where staff routinely eat sandwiches at their desks - and bring in cakes and biscuits for birthdays and other occasions.
In 2018, Ramadan started on May 17 and is expected to end on June 14.
...To support employees who are observing Ramadan, Peninsula Employment Law director Alan Price has provided some key tips for employers..."

Global Warming: New Study Says Models Exaggerate Warming By Up To 45%

Global Warming: New Study Says Models Exaggerate Warming By Up To 45%
"Settled Science: A new study published in a peer-reviewed journal finds that climate models exaggerate the global warming from CO2 emissions by as much as 45%. 
If these findings hold true, it's huge news. 
No wonder the mainstream press is ignoring it.

00:00


In the study, authors Nic Lewis and Judith Curry looked at actual temperature records and compared them with climate change computer models. 
What they found is that the planet has shown itself to be far less sensitive to increases in CO2 than the climate models say. 
As a result, they say, the planet will warm less than the models predict, even if we continue pumping CO2 into the atmosphere. 
As Lewis explains: "Our results imply that, for any future emissions scenario, future warming is likely to be substantially lower than the central computer model-simulated level projected by the (United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change), and highly unlikely to exceed that level..."

Dan Gilbert seals $618M tax incentive package for 4 Detroit projects

Dan Gilbert seals $618M tax incentive package for 4 Detroit projects
"The approval by the board of the Michigan Strategic Fund in Lansing on Tuesday was the final bureaucratic hurdle for the tax incentive package. The $618 million amount "is a new height for us," Greg Tedder, an executive vice president of the Michigan Economic Development Corp., said at a press conference Tuesday. The strategic fund is part of the MEDC. By comparison, construction of the $863 million Little Caesars Arena received $329.1 million in tax subsidies earlier this decade.



Quicken officials said that over the 30-year period in which the tax incentive package will be repaid, the incentives will have covered 15 percent of the projects' costs; meaning 15 percent will have come from some form of taxpayer money that would have ordinarily gone to schools, fixing roads and generally supporting state government departments..."

A Russian's Devastating Verdict on Norway | Trending

A Russian's Devastating Verdict on Norway | Trending
"Among the real-life Norwegian phenomena made gentle fun of in the 2012-14 Netflix series Lilyhammer, starring Steven Van Zandt as a New York mobster who has moved to Norway under the Witness Protection Program, were natteravnene -- the “night ravens,” groups of unarmed citizen volunteers, including little old ladies, who patrol the night streets to talk wayward youths out of breaking the law.
Image result for Norway Muslim ProblemThe concept is a quaint one, originating in a time when virtually all crimes committed in the middle of the Norwegian night were petty misdemeanors and when the perpetrators were Norwegian kids who, if confronted on the verge of a transgression by somebody their parents' or grandparents' age, could be expected to hang their heads in shame and go home.
No more: last Saturday night, a gang of “youths” in the Groruddalen area of Oslo, the physical descriptions of whom in the media made it clear that they were not ethnic Norwegians, threw rocks at a group of Natteravner.
The next night, a youth gang roamed around Tøyen, another Muslim neighborhood of Oslo, and threw rocks at passersby.
Minor crimes, perhaps -- but, in the Norwegian context, marks of a sea change...
...Don't believe my reports?
Fine -- listen to what Yuri Snegirev has to say.
Snegirov, a reporter for Rossiyskaya Gazeta, the Russian government's newspaper of record, visited Norway recently and recorded his observations in a three-part series of articles.
...He was appalled by how costly it is to travel by car, given the high tax on imported cars, the hefty tolls (and the extra charge to drive into Oslo), and the staggering price of gas (the world's highest). He highlighted one thing that I've griped about every winter since moving to Norway two decades ago: nobody shovels snow, so that the city sidewalks, except where underlaid with heating pipes, are covered for months at a time with deadly sheets of ice.
But Snegirev's comments on these topics were only prelude to the more serious stuff..."

A Housing Boom, Then a Volcanic Eruption

A Housing Boom, Then a Volcanic Eruption
"Lava flows from the Hawaiian volcano Kilauea have destroyed at least 26 homes and disrupted thousands of lives in the past two weeks. 
Reading this news, you might wonder why some Hawaii residents have chosen to live at the foot of an active volcano. 
The strange truth is that the state government encourages them.
Image result for Hawaiian volcano Kilauea homesKilauea, located on the southeast side of the Big Island, is one of the most active volcanoes in the world. 
In geologic terms, it has been continuously erupting since 1983, when a lava flow destroyed 16 homes in a subdivision called Royal Gardens. 
...The destruction caused in the early 1990s cost private insurers millions of dollars, prompting them to stop insuring property in the most vulnerable areas...
Unfortunately, the Hawaii state government stepped in. 
In 1991 the legislature created the nonprofit Hawaii Property Insurance Association, which provides policies to people who can’t buy them on the market. 
But private insurers are forced to join the HPIA as a condition of doing business in the state. 
They split the HPIA’s expenses, profits and losses in proportion to their market share.
In essence, Hawaii law requires all private insurers to pool their resources to subsidize policies in Lava Zones 1 and 2..."

At least six women have sued the university alleging misconduct.
One civil lawsuit claimed USC ignored complaints that Tyndall allegedly made crude remarks, took inappropriate photographs and groped patients to "satisfy his own prurient desires."

How the FBI, CIA, and NYT Collaborated to Sway the 1996 Election

How the FBI, CIA, and NYT Collaborated to Sway the 1996 Election:
"The idea is floated frequently that the still nameless Russian collusion scandal is "worse than Watergate." 
 It may well be, but that comparison overlooks a more useful parallel.
The gold standard of government conspiracy remains the investigation into the July 1996 crash of TWA Flight 800 off the south coast of Long Island.  
The ensuing cover-up involved many of the same players as in the Russia conspiracy and for the same immediate goal: to secure a presidential election for a Clinton.
As with the Russia scandal, not all the collaborators in the TWA 800 case were equally motivated or equally powerful.  
The White House drove the conspiracy through its Justice Department.  
The CIA executed it without conscience.  
The FBI grudgingly yielded to the CIA.  
And the New York Times dutifully reported what the FBI whispered in its reporters' ears.
As to the National Safety Board, the only agency with statutory authority to investigate a domestic plane crash, the DOJ shoved it aside on day one.  
The U.S. Navy brass, whose "combatants" were responsible for the accidental shoot-down of the 747, kept their heads down and their lips impressively sealed.  
They had nothing to gain by rocking this boat..."

Obama administration was corrupt - Washington Times

Obama administration was corrupt - Washington Times:

Image result for flickr commons images obama"There was so much hope in January 2009 when Barack Obama took office. Here was the first black president of the United States, promising to be a leader for all Americans, to halt the rise of the oceans and to be the most transparent administration ever. Even black Americans were saying the Civil War was finally over.
Unfortunately for America, it didn’t turn out that way. As more and more evidence is revealed daily on the evening news, it is now very clear the Obama administration was the most corrupt presidency in the history of the republic.
As Mr. Obama’s favorite, President Lincoln, warned us, the most dangerous threats can come from domestic enemies."

White South African farmers claiming persecution at home seek refuge in Australia — RT Business News

White South African farmers claiming persecution at home seek refuge in Australia — RT Business News:
"More than 200 farmers from South Africa have applied for humanitarian visas in Australia after allegedly suffering attacks for being white, according to the Australian Home Affairs Ministry.
“The type of criteria they of course have to meet – or the key one – is evidence of persecution, so that's exactly what we will be looking at,”...
News reports emerged earlier this year revealing that white farmers in South Africa had faced persecution after the country's government approved a new law allowing for the confiscation of their lands, which would be transferred to black citizens.
The legislation evoked strong disapproval both in the country and internationally, with a reported upsurge in violence against white farmers. 
Last year, some 82 people were killed in a record 423 farm attacks, and there have been 109 attacks and more than 15 murders in 2018, Afriforum, a South African civil rights group reported in March.

High School Principal Apologizes for Prom Tickets That Say 'Party Like It's 1776' - Hit & Run : Reason.com:
"Dennis Perry, principal of Cherry Hill High School East in New Jersey, has apologized for an insensitive message on the tickets for this year's prom: "party like it's 1776."
That's problematic, since students of color would definitely not have felt like partying if they were alive in 1776, when slavery was still legal.
"It was insensitive and irresponsible not to appreciate that not all communities can celebrate what life was like in 1776," said Perry in a letter to the community.


It's not clear whether any students were actually bothered by the message..."
