Marianne and Britannia finally end their centuries old language rivalry
The recent action taken by French President François Hollande, that from now on a French President must be fluent in English, has once and for all ended the rivalry of centuries past between France and Great Britain. But this was an overdue issue as English had over time become the Lingua Franca of the world and now more so because both Great Britain and France are members of the European Union and as trading partners could no longer be rivals.

Has America Lost Its Status as the "City Upon a Hill"?
Earth's inhabitants are reeling from a wave of atrocities that are increasing in frequency and intensity and which collectively, are a harbinger of evil on a biblical scale. Muslims can reject the Islamic State; nearly all do. But pretending that it isn't actually a religious, millenarian group, with theology that must be understood to be combatted, has already led the United States to underestimate it and back foolish schemes to counter it.

How to Empower Children to Overcome Sibling Rivalry
Teach them that they are Powerful Creators, and no matter what has happened in the past, they have the power to create something different... as do you. Talk about something they may choose to create. Something as simple as happiness or love. Or introduce a new word to them and explain what it means, like: Connection, Unity, Courage, Trust, Forgiveness, Integrity, Acceptance, Honor (Depending on their age level).

Canadian politicians not afraid to boast about their ILLEGAL ACTIONS?
If Michael Sona a former Conservative worker was charged for making robocalls deliberately guiding voters away from their voting booths in the 2011 federal election, then Scott Reid should be charged. There are so many rackets by political parties that even make professional criminals from the mob look like rank amateurs. The worst racket it seems, is that all government offices are run by political appointees who are put there to stop anyone from finding out all the scandals being perpetrated by party higher ups, and sycophants keep their jobs.

Somebody please shoot the Australian Media
I have to wonder if it is deliberately false newspaper allegations that lead to political turmoil or if it is just party turmoil that leads to media speculation and subsequently a fanning of the flames. Who would know that there was a problem in the party if the media did not fan the flames. Is it true that 'we have a right to know?' or is that just media speak for making money at the risk of destabilizing the country. One must ask: "Who is pulling the strings and what do they have to gain?" Why is there a constant threat to the stability of the "Office of Prime Minister?" Constantly targeting Prime Ministers would be a cost effective way of destabilizing a country - Yes?

Milt Gross Book and Movie Review: "The Virginian" by Owen Wister
I would make the judgement that the book was better reading than the DVD was viewing, but I doubt if you can find a copy of the 1902 original book. Dolores found mine at the town's recycling center. I'm sure glad she found it and brought it home to become a part of my permanent library.....I wonder if the writer ever actually considered these ideas as he wrote. Or were these ideas added by others who read his book. Wister, it seems, was from a wealthy family, had the best education, and did a lot of writing in addition to this worthy western. He was born in Philadelphia in 1860, which must have been a good year as it also the year my grandfather was born, perhaps in Missouri.

Down the Road
Mud season is next
Doing Maine Appalachian Trail Club volunteering I've driven narrow roads near Monson that were either gravel, large stones that made me stop and move them, or some mud. The mud always scared me more, because I didn't know what was down in there where the tires would go or get stuck. On some of those volunteer trips, I've driven with one wheel in the grassy center of the road and the other on the tension-creating edge of the road. I never got stuck doing that, and I never got stuck in the mud that filled the normal place the tires would roll.

Turning Point in my Marriage -- and my Life
For the first time, I was terrified I had made a terrible mistake in marrying him. Perhaps we were a total mismatch after all and our relationship could never work. Like the Ladies Home Journal, we were classic candidates for "Can This Marriage Be Saved?" He was sixteen years older and an African. I was an Ohio farm girl. On top of that, he had been divorced. What had I gotten myself into? A fleeting moment of respite came, I'm still young. I can start over.

Netanyahu's true electoral rival
But unofficially, a far greater electoral drama is unfolding. The choice is not between Netanyahu and Herzog/Livni. It is between Netanyahu and US President Barack Obama...."They will get their state in the end - whether through violence or by turning to international organizations." Indyk made his statements as an unnamed US official. When his identity was exposed, he was forced to resign his position...Today Obama believes that he is in a to-the-death struggle with Netanyahu. If Netanyahu's speech is a success, Obama's foreign policy will be indefensible. If Obama is able to delegitimize Netanyahu ahead of his arrival, and bring about his electoral defeat, then with a compliant Israeli government, he will face no obstacles to his plan to appease Iran and blame Islamic terrorism on the West for the remainder of his tenure in office.

Martha Stevens-David Book Review: "Upson Downes" By Dottie Maley
This book, though small, contained many humorous references and incidents that only folks of the "older" generation can dearly appreciate. The community of Upson Downes is full of quirky characters and shows life can be unexpected at any age. I recommend the book as a great and quick read!

Newly released book provides the framework to end the scourge of Islamic jihad
One could only wish that President Obama and his so-called national security team, especially his National Security Advisor Susan Rice and his chief confidante Valerie Jarrett, would read a newly released book that more than explains not only how policymakers should discuss the enemy in this war against Islamic extremists but also how the United States, as the most powerful and exceptional nation in the world, should wage war against an enemy that is as cunning as it is fanatical.

Winning at Working--Blurred Lines Require New Skills
Instead of an early start, with time to read the news, check key messages, and write uninterruptedly for a pending project, I spent it down a rabbit hole. What I expected was a five or ten minute interruption to answer a client's email, marked with one of those urgent exclamation points, but it took me over an hour. Before I could even send the requested information, I got an email telling me, in essence, "never mind," the direction had changed.

How some people return to an old played out pattern without ever realizing it
When the war ended on May 8, 1945, millions of people had been exterminated in the death camps of Germany, Austria, Czechoslovakia and Poland, but the minorities that had been paying off the Nazis, were spared and alive. Today, when I get attacked by people just like the French Vichy living in Montreal and other parts of Kebek, I know that I am fighting the very same battle as the French Maquis did in France against its Nazi German occupiers.

The Writing of The Soul Comes First
I learned that many "evil" people are simply doing what was done to them, and desperately looking for someone with the strength to show them how to get over it. I learned that people used to being in control find the sensations that come with being loved to be frightening, almost a betrayal by the thirst of their hearts. I learned that many intellectual atheists are "spiritual", and those that are not do not realize how frightening others find the strength of their minds. I realized that Biblical literalists use their dogmatism to hold those minds at bay.

Women with wealth, protect yourselves
By nature, most women are determined, loyal volunteers who want to help mend broken people and won't give up until the man or his problem is fixed. By then Romeo is nowhere to be found because her money is all gone and there is nothing more for him to stick around for, no more supply of money or cars or businesses to steal. Brigitte Knowles is a financial security advisor and former deputy mayor of one of the largest cities in North America; a legislator who led the way for child support reform in Canada. Her knowledge and experience should have protected her, yet she became a victim of Romeo crime and lost nearly everything.

Milt Gross Book Review: "The Fur Person" by May Sarton
I occasionally stared at one of our two cats as I read this. "Is what she wrote true?" I asked the furry critter with sharp claws. May Sarton (1912-1995) was an avid writer, having penned many poetry, novels, nonfiction, and childrens' books. The Fur Person, the cat in the book, was actually Sarton's real cat, Tom Jones. Sarton Copyrighted the book in 1957 and again in 1978, apparently for a publisher. It was first published by W.W. Norton & Company, etc. in 2015.

When The Church Condones Silence: Confronting Sexual Abuse within Leadership and Family
I hope to enlighten other faithful members of the Catholic Church with the truth of how molesters are kept in active ministry, endangering innocent children and families. Being a cradle Catholic, I was encouraged to trust them. But, I was continually troubled because I saw no indication the Church was doing as it had promised. My brother remained in active ministry, being transferred from parish to unsuspecting parish with no warnings to anyone about the danger he presented.

We headed west back through that New Hampshire town to visit friends who lived 20 miles west of there. When we left their house that evening, Route 2 was so awful with snow that we headed south on another road. After all, there was bound to be less snow south than where we were. But south took us over a mountain and down somewhere near Conway. We crossed into Maine and started driving north. Only to encounter a young couple, who were stuck in that snow.

Islamic Caliphate: Satan's Dream or a Fool's Errand?
Throughout history, other heads-of-state have tried to rid the earth of God's chosen people, eventually yielding to Adolph Hitler, the monstrous and most despicable anti-Semitic of all time. This evil leader came closest to succeeding but ironically, the Fuhrer's failure paved the way for the fulfillment of one of the great Biblical prophecies--the rebirth of national Israel (Isaiah 66:8). Hitler's murderous reign initiated the ongoing fulfillment of another set of amazing prophecies, the Aliyah, the immigration of Jews from the diaspora to the land of Israel (Ezekiel 20:34; Isaiah 11:11 -- 12).

Why we should support ISIL
I was checking the local online news today (local as in Australian because I am Australian - not local as in Chinese because I live in China) and came across an article which had some rather surprising information contained within.... If you are a reasonable individual, you probably consider that the issues mentioned above are in fact 'reasonable,' which is why I now quote from a new ISIL directive; the same ISIL that does not tolerate Christianity, even to the extent of murdering Christians it comes across.

The Threat to Freedom: The Southern Poverty Law Center and the Department of Homeland Security
Particular attention should be paid to SPLC's tax exempt status and the amount of money it receives from DHS or any other agency. And there should be an immediate stop to American law enforcement being trained by SPLC's Federal Law Enforcement Training Center. I fear that if private groups with their own political agendas, like the SPLC, are allowed to continue feeding their own brand of hatred into the policies of DHS then such a comparison with China is not too far off. I don't think that is the America each of you pledged to serve.

Granddad's Forecast for America in 2015
Perhaps 2015 will be best remembered as the year we realized that modest growth and slight deflation are most laudable economic goals. Robust growth usually is followed by robust crisis and slight deflation means that each of our dollars goes slightly farther every year. This may be the only way we can moderate the disaster that inevitably follows excessive printing of money. Excessive printing of money, first in the U.S. and now in Japan and Europe increases the specter of inflation, but we will see stable prices and interest rates at least through this year. There will be currency instability and turmoil, because of overactive central banks, and the dollar will continue to be strong. This will be a drag on our exports, but will also be seen by American consumers in lower import prices. The result of this turmoil, probably not in 2015 but the inevitable result, will be a new international currency regimen.

Terrorism and The Reformation of Islam
There are signs that leaders of Islamic countries are coming to realize the threat to their existence from radical Islam. Christianity was once cruel and corrupt. Most Christians were not cruel. The teachings of Christ were not corrupt. The Christian Reformation was a rebellion against the power of The Church. It was only complete when Christian governments recognized they could not have domain over the thoughts and beliefs of their people. The Law of the Realm that once governed our beliefs has evolved to its proper role of governing only our behavior toward each other.
