While searching I found an interesting article titled "Prophesies and Revelations": German Cabbalists in Early Pennsylvania. Very interesting stuff! And gave me some significant clues about the Christian Cabbala touchpoint with the Zohar of the Jewish Kabbalah. The article was published in The Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography, Vol. 109. No.3 (Jul 1985). Then I spied this footnote that will interest all members of the Kelpius Society. "The manuscript copy of Kelpius's diary and letterbook is in the Historical Society of Pennsylvania. I have checked Sachse's translation against the manuscript and have found several errors, especially transcription errors. I have used Sachse's translation for quotations in English, but where his errors have confused or altered the meaning of a passage, I have inserted my own corrections in brackets. The article is signed by a Elizabeth W. Fisher, Harvard University. Wow! Now here is a manuscript that needs to be 'translated' and republished as the written work of John Kelpius. No one up to now, except for Julius Sachse , has even seen any written work of John Kelpius.
On this day in 1951 President Harry S. Truman relieved General of the Army Douglas MacArthur of overall command in Korea. The arrogant as ever MacArthur was running his mouth and making public statements that contradicted that of the Truman administration.
In the early 1960's this is what Truman said about MacArthur. "I fired him because he wouldn't respect the authority of the President.
In light of today's problems with North Korea, am wondering if maybe Truman was wrong and MacArthur was right militarily about Korea.

A Renegade History of the United States by Thaddeus Russell
Unlike many dissident histories of the United States, which attempt to portray racial minorities, sexual subcultures and subordinate classes as “worthy victims” in terms of the social mores of the white middle class, Thaddeus Russell celebrates the kind of people that your parents may have warned you about: the low-down, no-count, not-respectable people.
At first I thought this a typical Liberal lefty writing with fake 'moral ' outrage is demostrated on the Tea Party, or Sarah Palin but in contradiction here are opinions backed up with political facts and even philosophical connections. So Kudos to Thaddeus Russell.

Fifteen Benefits of the War on Drugs
With American drug use levels essentially the same as — and levels of drug-related violence either the same as or lower than — those in countries like the Netherlands with liberal drug laws, public support for the War on Drugs appears to be faltering. This was most recently evidenced in the victory of major drug decriminalization initiatives in Colorado and Washington.
I think Libertiarians ought to think about how to reduce the Prison population peopled with folk captured in the so-called- War on Drugs. I mean there are drugs and medicines and not all drive the minds of the users into oblivion. Marijuana for example is extremely mild compared to the harsh behaviors of someone high on Cocaine, or hallucinating on Morphine derivitives. And none of these folk ought to be in prison where even Emergency treatments for Over dosing is often not available. Thus there is a benefit to ending this so-called War. Let's do it!
