Roosevelt's parents, who were sixth cousins,  both came from wealthy old New York families, the Roosevelts and the Delanosrespectively. Roosevelt's patrilineal ancestor migrated to New Amsterdam in the 17th century, and the Roosevelts flourished as merchants and landowners. His father, James Roosevelt I, graduated from Harvard Law School inbut chose not to practice law after receiving an inheritance from his grandfather, James Roosevelt. At age nine he attended public school in Germany.
I write off-the-wall fictionand Righteous Seduction concerns next-generation game. My blog concerns "deplorable" politics, game, and my writing projects. Franklin Delano Roosevelt How the world remembers: All the New Deal programs were struck down as unconstitutional, except Social Security. He got the Supreme Court to back off by threatening to pack the Court with more members with views to his liking.
General Patton wanted to press forward at full speed to keep as much territory as possible away from Soviet tyranny, but politics hampered him every step of the way until he got rubbed out.
Later, Joseph McCarthy barely scratched the surface trying to get rid of them. Walter Cronkite How the world remembers: He was a long-time CBS anchorman, reporting many triumphs and tragedies.
Although a decent fellow in person, Cronkite was the archetypal big-name liberal journalistspinning the news for decades. Sometimes it was rather subliminal, including his signature subtle sneer.
There once were only three American corporate TV networks.
Baby Boomer liberals might get a bit misty-eyed remembering those days. The Viet Cong launched a desperate all-out assault, suffered very heavy losses, mostly it was over within a day, and ultimately the VC gained no territory.
Public opinion promptly turned against the war. Many forget that the Paris Accords brought peace. Allen Ginsberg How the world remembers: He was a pioneer of the beatniks, much beloved by the hippies who followed, and lauded with several literary prizes.
Some even credit him with basically starting the s counterculture singlehandedly. Back when poetry meant Keats and Kipling, it rhymed and had meter. He was a noted critic of the USA, for example: He abandoned his ancestral faith for Buddhism and had a Hare Krishna phase. What people believe is up to them, of course, but adding these two things up—along with his wretched poetry—reveals a tortured soul.
Still, what were those who promoted his crapulous drivel smoking? Were the literary gatekeepers pushing cultural Marxism running out of talented writers?
As I get older, having very specialised sexual tastes, it gets harder to make out… I like young boys. Ted Kennedy Best friends forever, east and west How the world remembers: His lack of character sank way deeper, though; all the way underwater. After a night of partying on Chappaquiddick Island, Ted Kennedy drove off a bridge.
He escaped, but failed to help his passenger, Mary Jo Kopechne. He got a two month suspended sentence, barely a slap on the wrist for vehicular manslaughter.
The judge basically said poor Teddy had suffered enough. What about how Miss Kopechne suffered? The suckers kept reelecting him, though a Presidential bid was now beyond reach. As for his many legislative actions, the Immigration and Nationality Act of was the most notorious.
He promised the public: First, our cities will not be flooded with a million immigrants annually.
In the final analysis, the ethnic pattern of immigration under the proposed measure is not expected to change as sharply as the critics seem to think… The bill will not flood our cities with immigrants.
It will not upset the ethnic mix of our society. It will not relax the standards of admission. It will not cause American workers to lose their jobs. Still, the suckers kept reelecting him. Conservatives often suspect liberals are soft on Communism; little did they know how cozy Ted Kennedy was in bed with Comrade Andropov.
John Lennon How the world remembers: He was a talented musician, arguably the most prominent of the Beatles.Login to access the Upswing Virtual Learning Center for Houston Community College.

And on that dread day, the Ineffable One will summon the artificers and makers of graven images, and He will command them to give life to their creations, and failing, they and their creations will be dedicated to the flames. Stalin’s Secret Agents: The Subversion of Roosevelt’s Government.
