A Bit of Wisdom from Eisenhower on Farming from a Distance

Bloomberg can teach you how to farm, he said he could teach anyone in 5 mins. Get a kernel of corn, put it in a hole, water it and poof, you have corn.
You Dems sure got really big brains you do.😂

    Bloomberg isn't a Democrat. He pays to play one on tv.

      1. War is Peace. Freedom is Slavery. Ignorance is Strength.

      2. The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power – pure power.

      3. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship.

      4. . The past was erased, the erasure was forgotten, the lie became the truth.

      5. The choice for mankind lies between freedom and happiness and for the great bulk of mankind, happiness is better.

      6. Until they became conscious they will never rebel, and until after they have rebelled they cannot become conscious.

      7. Doublethink means the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one’s mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them.

      8. BigBrother is watching you.

    Trump is saving America, from the corrupted democraps.
    When Trump said he wanted to drain the swamp, the dumpacraps became scared that they would be put in prison.
    And you 73 Percentiles know it's true. Your party is the most corrupt party in this Nation.
    Look how great our country has become, and all the Democrats have done is fight against all of this winning. Dumpacraps have done nothing NOTHING TO HELP WITH RECORD BREAKING STOCK MARKET, RECORD LOW UNEMPLOYMENT, CONSUMER CONFIDENCE AT TWENTY YEAR HIGHS, AMERICAN MANUFACTURING TWENTY EIGHT PERCENT INCREASE, WIN, WIN AND WINNING, WHILE DEMOCRAYS CRY, WHINE AND LIE!!!
    THANK YOU MR PRESIDENT FOR TAKING CARE OF AMERICANS, WHILE THE DEMOCRATS ONLY CATE ABOUT THEIR GREED.

He was from the times of decent republicans - not the republicans of today's times who seem to be rotten and greedy - anyone who supports the corrupt one in charge falls into this horrid category.

    Gone are the days and they were good days in the fifties. Parents really knew how to raise their kids properly and would pay more attention to them. There weren't too many permissive parents and there weren't any laws created by these liberals that benefited the kids like they do now! And yes there are STILL A LOT of good republicans out there including our own POTUS! Some of you folks need to get a life!

      Then you have the Democrats. Look at our jails and prisons. The majority of our prisoners ARE DEMOCRATS and it's a PROVEN FACT. There's no denying it, in all of our states, the MAJORITY OF CONVICTED FELONS ARE DEMOCRATS.
      These are the same people who will VOTE AS A SOCIALIST MEMBER. HOW UN-AMERICAN THE DEMS ARE TODAY. Truly disgusting, women and men who have served in our military, do you think they still will for the socialist party of America? What's next socialist, communism? You all who would vote for a socialist should be put in front of a firing squad for treason, you're not Americans, you don't deserve that honor.

          Wow, look at the grammar, they’re totally infiltrating this small site.

          So Igor plays the Bernie socialist BS media plot.

          And Pavel plays the conservative Republican.

          But, in both roles they cannot fray from their beloved uttering ‘ communist ‘ socialist ‘ duelist technique.

          And the two smile at each other from encrypted devices, typing the stereotypical word Communism constantly in their awful rhetoric- doing their best to fuel each person.

          Polarizing and gas -lighting the other side to help continue their feuding. It’s neighborhood against neighborhood out here in the sticks.

One significant omission of the President was his lack of enforcement of the court ruling Brown vs. Board of Education of Topeka, Kansas, 1954. As the head of the executive branch, it is his and his cabinet's duty to ensure the enforcement of federal laws and Supreme Court rulings.

He can be quoted as saying that the states would take care of this matter, but as late as 1960, virtually all of the South's public schools had remained completely segregated. His indifference allowed the horrible occurrence at Little Rock, Arkansas in 1957.

It is likely that there were many repeated incidents of this denial of equal educational opportunities around the nation that were not reported. In today's language, one might say that the President did not take action because it was not "politically correct" at the time.

Keep in mind that prejudice and racism had not only existed in society, but it was allowed by law. Only with the 1960's civil rights movement was there the beginning of a move to equality and integration.
