  • Alexander Hamilton: The Plain of Weehawken and the Loss of a Hero

    Illinois Review ^ | July 11, 2015 A.D. | John F. Di Leo
    Reflections on the anniversary of America’s most tragic duel… Early in the morning of July 11, 1804, the Vice President and the former Secretary of the Treasury stood on the Plain of Weehawken – a wild land in New Jersey, where the laws were different from civilized New York, across the water – and they had their interview, like many a pair had before them, on that “field of honor.” There was a time in American history when every product of our education system (yes - public, private, and homeschooled alike!) knew the participants in our most famous duel.

  • The Ten Dollar Bill - So Much More than a Means of Exchange

    Illinois Review ^ | June 23, 2015 A.D. | John F. Di Leo
    What is a nation’s currency? Ask an economist, and he’ll tell you that a U.S. Dollar bill, or a European Euro note, or a British Pound note, for that matter, is not really objectively worth its denomination. It’s just a piece of cotton paper, with a drop of ink and a magnetic strip. It’s not worth much. But it represents confidence in the nation’s economy, and it serves the economy as a means of exchange – a few pennies worth of decorated cotton serving to enable the purchase of a $1 loaf of bread, or a $10 lunch, or a...
  • Greece, creditors dig in after debt talks founder (EU preparing for 'state of emergency')

    06/15/2015 9:40:38 AM PDT · by Enlightened1 · 20 replies
    Greece and its creditors hardened their stances on Monday after the collapse of talks aimed at preventing a default and possible euro exit, prompting Germany's EU commissioner to say the time had come to prepare for a "state of emergency". Leftist Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras ignored pleas from European leaders to act fast. Instead he blamed creditors for Sunday's breakdown of the cash-for-reform talks, the biggest setback in long-running negotiations to unlock aid for Greece. Athens now has just two weeks to find a way out of the impasse before it faces a 1.6 billion euro repayment due to the...

    April 21, 2013 Earth Day co-founder killed, composted girlfriend Remy Melina Ira Einhorn was on stage hosting the first Earth Day event at the Fairmount Park in Philadelphia on April 22, 1970. Seven years later, police raided his closet and found the "composted" body of his ex-girlfriend inside a trunk. A self-proclaimed environmental activist, Einhorn made a name for himself among ecological groups during the 1960s and '70s by taking on the role of a tie-dye-wearing ecological guru and Philadelphia’s head hippie. With his long beard and gap-toothed smile, Einhorn — who nicknamed himself "Unicorn" because his German-Jewish last name...

    DULUTH, Minn.—Jeno Paulucci, a Minnesota business icon whose restaurant ventures included a company that popularized the finger food known as pizza rolls, has died. He was 93. Paulucci's daughter Cindy Paulucci Selton tells the Duluth News-Tribune he died Thursday morning at his Duluth home. His wife, Lois, had died just four days earlier. In 1944, Paulucci founded Duluth-based Chun King, which sold a line of canned Chinese food. More than two decades later, he sold that company to R.J. Reynolds Food Inc.

    Today is the anniversary of the birth of George Washington. Of all the great men of the revolutionary era to whom we owe our freedom, Washington's greatness was the rarest and the most needed. At this remove in time, it is also the hardest to comprehend. Take, for example, Washington's contribution to the Constitutional Convention of 1787. Washington's mere presence lent the undertaking and its handiwork the legitimacy that resulted in success. The convention's first order of business was the election of a presiding officer. Washington was the delegates' unanimous choice.

    On page A3 of today’s Washington Post: Another liberal movement leader, Daily Kos blog founder Markos Moulitsas, said he “long ago” cut off contact with the White House. “It’s clear that they want to double down on their capitulation strategy,” he said in an e-mail. Those words are written in English, but I cannot seem to get them to make sense in that order. The staff of the leader of the free world, with the world’s most powerful bully pulpit, in service of a president whose persuasive and oratorical abilities are endlessly touted, find themselves needing the assistance of the...

    Following a harsh exchange between MSNBC host Joe Scarborough and Daily Kos founder Markos Moulitsas on Twitter in May, Moulitsas writes today that he has been banned (for now) from appearing on the network. He publishes an email from MSNBC President Phil Griffin explaining the reasoning (a “cheap shot”), but Moulitsas concludes he has “been booted from the network because of a Scarborough temper tantrum.” Moulitsas writes today on Daily Kos about the circumstances in a post “Why I am blacklisted by MSNBC“. “In case you were wondering why you haven’t seen me on MSNBC recently, it seems that Joe...

    American Minute for March 16th: Called the "Chief Architect of the Constitution," he wrote many of the Federalist Papers which helped convince States to ratify the Constitution. He introduced the First Amendment in the first session of Congress. This was James Madison, born MARCH 16, 1751. During the War of 1812, Madison proclaimed two National Days of Prayer, 1812 and 1813. When the British marched on Washington, D.C., citizens evacuated, along with President and Dolly Madison. On August 25, 1814, as the British burned the White House, Capitol and public buildings, dark clouds began to roll in. A tornado sent...
  • Which America Do Americans Want? (There are 2 America's, each with its own Philosophical founder)

    American Thinker ^ | 11/21/2009 | John Morgan
    Philosophically speaking, there are two Americas, each with a founding father. The first man, born 500 years ago last July, was the theologian John Calvin. Should this sound incredible, bear in mind that this has been the contention of more than a few historians in the past. In his book Christianity and the Constitution, John Eidsmoe lists several reasons for agreeing with this estimation. First, at the time when America became a country, about two-thirds of the population had a religious affiliation that was at least partly Calvinistic in doctrine. In fact, it was the persecution of that particular religious...
