Reviewing Renewals and What They Represent

It seems always every week there is something in our lives giving notice that a renewal is due from the entertainment factors to insurance. I just got a renewal notice from AMAC. https://amac.us/ What is AMAC? Association of Mature American Citizens which is a match in benefits and information with AARP – American Association of Retired Citizens. Both claim to be nonpartisan but AARP supports a lot of things of which we might not like to be a part of by way of our renewal payments.

We joined AMAC – Association of Mature American Citizens five years ago and enjoy their magazine and their outlook on the world and politics. Of course, there are the people who stand by whatever AARP represents but since AARP doesn’t take everyone’s view into consideration, you might check out AMAC. The membership fees are very reasonable and they offer scores of discounts and other insurance possibilities. AND, your membership fees will never be put towards political or moral standards that are not in line with your own.

Few Words But Lots of Pictures – Think About It

Citizenship and Circumstances

Morality is the very soul of good citizenship.
Arcb. Ireland: American Citizenship (1895)

No better citizen is there, whether in time of peace or war, then the Christian who is midful of his duty; but such a one should be ready to suffer all things, even death itself, rather than abandon the cause of God or of the Church.
Pope Leo XIII: Satientiae Christinae (1890)

Circumstances are but the subject-matter, and not the rule of our conduct, not in any sense the cause of it.
Cardinal Newman: Oxford University Sermons (19th centurY

Theodore Roosevelt Says . . .

Theodore Roosevelt’s ideas on Immigrants and being an AMERICAN in 1907. 
‘In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American…There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag… We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language.. And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.’ 
Theodore Roosevelt 1907

Guarding the Borders

Donald Trump made a statement that, if he were president, he would restrict any person or group of people he felt were a threat to the United States. Arguments aside on the reasons for his idea, the media is having a Trump bashing day with even the White House   coming out and saying   Trump should bow out of the race as his views on the subject make him unfit for running and, possibly, being elected president. It has been said that this idea by Trump was unconstitutional.

Seems the people who are coming at Trump for his words might consider a bit of research on the topic before throwing the proverbial stones.
