(My two cents worth of opinion for this week.)

"Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before!
What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store.
What if Christmas . . . perhaps . . . means a little bit more!"

-- "How the Grinch Stole Christmas!" by "Dr. Seuss" Geisel.

. Dot "High School Teacher Fired for Refusing to Use Transgender Student's Preferred Pronoun." Who is running the insane asylum?

. Dot "1st Amendment Invalid on 9 of 10 College Campuses." Freedom is on decline.
. Dot "Lawsuit: Students at Major College Can Get in Trouble for 'Ridicule,' 'Insults' -- Even 'Rude,' 'Uncivil' Emails." And thus, freedom of speech dies a rapid death at the University of Texas at Austin. Have you noticed that a lot of what liberals do hurts our country?
. Dot "Uneducated: Why American Education Is Fundamentally Flawed." The short answer: the Left did it.
. Dot "University: Our Nondiscrimination Policy Trumps Constitution." If leftists don't like what the Constitution says, they ignore it. Of course, this heralds the end of our system of government.
. Dot "College Places Menstrual Products in Men's Restrooms in the Name of Inclusivity for Transgender Students." Idiots!

Global-Warming Deception and the Leftist Environmental Movement

Government Run Amuck

. Dot "6 'Deep Staters' Tried to Infiltrate Trump Camp in 2016." This is an inexcusable corruption of our government. We all should be outraged. But few of us seem to be.
. Dot "California Democrats Plan to Extend Medicaid to Illegal Immigrants." Well, that should encourage another few million illegal immigrants to enter the U.S. And guess what: legal citizens get to pay for them.
. Dot "Rand Paul: Deep State Is Rising." The Left has corrupted our government.
. Dot "California Officially Becomes First in Nation Mandating Solar Power for New Homes." What if you don't want solar panels? What happened to freedom of choice?

Quotes of Note
Dot "I'll have them nigg--s voting Democratic for two hundred years." -- Lyndon B. Johnson. (Source.)
. . . . . Said about the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Apparently, the Act had nothing to do with the civil rights of blacks and everything to do with rounding up votes for Democrats. And it has been undeniably successful toward that end.

Dot "Statesmen may plan and speculate for liberty, but it is religion and morality alone, which can establish the principles upon which freedom can securely stand. The only foundation of a free Constitution is pure virtue, and if this cannot be inspired into our people in a greater measure than they have it now, they may change their rulers and the forms of Government, but they will not obtain a lasting liberty." -- John Adams. (Source.)
. . . . . This is worrisome.

Dot "Take away the heritage of a people and they are easily destroyed." -- Karl Marx. (Source.)
. . . . . When you take down statues, you take away heritage.

Dot "When an opponent declares, 'I will not come over to your side,' I calmly say, 'Your child belongs to us already. What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community.'" -- Adolph Hitler. (Source.)
. . . . . Your child belongs to the government education system.

Dot "If they can get control of children . . . they can change the whole culture in one generation. . . . Do you understand that children are the stem cells for the culture?" -- Dr. James Dobson. (Source.)
. . . . . They already have control of the children.

Dot "We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members." -- Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood. (Source.)
. . . . . Margaret Sanger's objective continues to be a rather well-kept secret.

Dot "If a nation is strong or weak, it thrives or perishes upon what it believes to be true. If our youth are rightly instructed in the faith of our fathers . . . then our power will be stronger." -- Herbert Hoover, at a reception for his 80th birthday in West Branch, Iowa, Aug. 10, 1954. (Source.)
. . . . . Our youth are being fed a non-stop stream of propaganda about socialism and communism. They are not being instructed in the faith of our fathers.

Mary Babnick Brown

Mary Babnick Brown was an American woman who donated her long blond hair to be used as crosshairs in Norden bombsights in WW II.

Brown was a Coloradan; the child of Slovenian immigrants. She left elementary school at the age of 12, to help support her family as a servant for $5/week. When she was 13, she lied about her age so that she could work at National Broom Factory for 75 cents a day, a job she held for 42 years. Her younger siblings pitched in by picking up chunks of coal that had fallen onto the railroad tracks. Brown's lone prized possession was her knee-length fine blonde hair.

In 1943, Brown saw an advertisement in a newspaper, searching for women with blonde hair of at least 22" length, that had never been treated with chemicals or hot irons. The military was offering to purchase such hair, to be used for meteorological instruments in the war effort.

The "meteorological instruments" were actually crosshairs for Norden bombsights. The Army Air Forces (the predecessor to today's US Air Force) had tried various materials for the Norden bombsight, including black widow spider webbing, but nothing could withstand the temperature variations like fine blonde human hair that had never been treated with chemicals or heat.

Brown sent off a sample of her 34" blonde hair to the government for analysis. After analyzing her hair, the government agreed to purchase it, offering to pay her in war savings stamps. But Brown wouldn't accept payment for her hair. She saw it as her patriotic duty to help the war effort. She later recalled that she cried for months after cutting her hair.

It was decades before Brown learned the true use of her hair, and the effect of her sacrifice. In 1987, on her 80th birthday, she received a personal thank-you letter from President Ronald Reagan.

Brown's hometown of Pueblo, Colorado declared an official Mary Babnik Brown day, and she also received an award from the Colorado Aviation Historical Society.

Said Brown: "Here I am, an old lady of 83, and I'm still flying high".

Kid's Perspective
A woman was trying hard to get ketchup out of the jar, with no success. During her struggle, the phone rang and she asked her four-year-old daughter to answer it. The minister was calling. "Mommy can't come to the phone to talk to you right now," the four-year-old said. "She's hitting the bottle."
