And finally, the last video in the series.
So what have you learned? What do you think? Frankly, the scrubbing and silencing of American history makes my blood boil.
Things interesting or useful, inspiring or thought provoking, pictures, poetry, videos, sometimes personal stuff, and the occasional minor rant.

Don’t let your prejudices get in the way. If you are inclined to dismiss these videos just because of the name Glenn Beck, ask yourself why? These videos are entertaining and fascinating, no shouting or rancor, and you will thoroughly enjoy them. Glen and his guest will teach you more about black heroes and others in American history than you have ever known or imagined. If you already know all this I want to shake your hand for you are a truly open-minded, well-educated person and I would be thrilled to know you. Here is more information about black heroes of the American Revolution and in history. Guaranteed you will learn more about this lost aspect of our history that will leave you amazed. Watch one. I DARE YOU.
Then, if you want to know more about the books mentioned in this and the previous video series, they are:
The Colored Patriots of the American Revolution This one can also be downloaded for free as a Google book pdf.
(This is the complete show in one video)

Went to see Monumental (currently http://monumentalmovie.com/) tonight and nearly every seat was full! The movie was not what I expected, it was way more.
I came away with a more profound understanding of the Puritans/Separatists who came to establish a new nation on our shores, and how history formed them in the face of unimaginable oppression and difficulties. I now know that the trite, superficial portrayals of these amazingly strong, courageous and profoundly (and unashamedly) committed Christians is either a product of shamefully abysmal ignorance or of willful, malicious distortion and revisionism.
This was a special 1 night live event, but to get it to a theater here to Rochester, NY (or your own town) you can go to http://www.demandthemovie.com/monumental/ and enter your request.
If you think you know American history, I can tell you that unless you are one of a handful of rare people, you are wrong. Period. Find out where it is showing, request it until it is, then see it and I guarantee that it will open your eyes, unless your mind is so closed that you have chosen blindness over truth.

I got this from a friend and it was so good I’m posting it here.
THE GREEN THING
In the line at the store, the cashier told the older woman that plastic bags weren’t good for the environment. The woman apologized to her and explained, “We didn’t have the green thing back in my day.”
That’s right, they didn’t have the green thing in her day. Back then, they returned their milk bottles, Coke bottles and beer bottles to the store. The store sent them back to the plant to be washed and sterilized and refilled, using the same bottles over and over. So they really were recycled. But they didn’t have the green thing back her day.
In her day, they walked up stairs, because they didn’t have an escalator in every store and office building. They walked to the grocery store and didn’t climb into a 300-horsepower machine every time they had to go two blocks. But she’s right. They didn’t have the green thing in her day.
Back then they washed the baby’s diapers because they didn’t have the throwaway kind. They dried clothes on a line, not in an energy-gobbling machine burning up 220 volts – wind and solar power really did dry the clothes. Kids got hand-me-down clothes from their brothers or sisters, not always brand-new clothing. But that old lady is right. They didn’t have the green thing back in her day.
Back then they had one TV, or radio, in the house – not a TV in every room. And the TV had a small screen the size of a pizza dish, not a screen the size of the state of Montana. In the kitchen, they blended and stirred by hand because they didn’t have electric machines to do everything for you. When they packaged a fragile item to send in the mail, they used wadded up newspaper to cushion it, not Styrofoam or plastic bubble wrap. Back then, they didn’t fire up an engine and burn gasoline just to cut the lawn. They used a push mower that ran on human power. They exercised by working so they didn’t need to go to a health club to run on treadmills that operate on electricity. But she’s right. They didn’t have the green thing back then.
They drank from a fountain when they were thirsty, instead of using a cup or a plastic bottle every time they had a drink of water. They refilled pens with ink, instead of throwing the used one and buying a new pen, and they replaced the razor blades in a razor instead of throwing away the whole razor just because the blade got dull. But they didn’t have the green thing back then.
Back then, people took the streetcar and kids rode their bikes to school or rode the school bus, instead of turning their moms into a 24-hour taxi service. They had one electrical outlet in a room, not an entire bank of sockets to power a dozen appliances. And they didn’t need a computerized gadget to receive a signal beamed from satellites 2,000 miles out in space in order to find the nearest pizza joint. But that old lady is right. They didn’t have the green thing back in her day.
Makes you stop and think what we’ve done to ourselves.
