Sandy Hook / The American character

  1. Jim, I thought this run-down of the Sandy Hook situation was one of your best. I really appreciated it.

    And thanks to the other speaker for his overall thoughts on the other topic, too.

    1. I am going to put the title, since that will help people know what this is and how significant it is. Thank you for the link itself, though, Larry:

      The video, posted today, by "odinrok" is of a news clip and is entitled:

  3. I am odinrok. There was no mention of this interaction in any of the print media. Hopefully one day someone will thank me for sitting through all these incredibly mind numbing town and state meetings to find these little nuggets.

  4. Thank you Odinrok/Larry!! I greatly appreciate you taking the time to do that. I've done a bit myself, but not as much as you I'm sure.

  5. In this program, there are some very important perceptions about the “American character,” as expressed by Dr. Ibrahim Sudi. For example, he discusses the importance of education in providing students with the ability to learn on their own: “If your formal education does not inspire you to do self-education, then the formal education has failed.” Here is a vital point about how basic skills in critical thinking, careful research, and the ability to probe an issue on one’s own have dropped out of our universities.

    As a visitor to America, Dr. Sudi has the unique vantage point of an “outsider,” who may see patterns that are not apparent to those of us conditioned by an habitual experience akin to that of a dysfunctional family. In the 1830s, the French aristocrat Alexis de Tocqueville offered similar observations as an “outsider” in his travels in America, resulting in the influential book “Democracy in America.” Therefore, Dr. Sudi is certainly a voice to be taken seriously.

    1. Education should be about equipping a person with the tools to teach themselves, but sadly, it usually isn't and instead concentrates on learning set facts and figures.

  6. The America we thought we knew, is either gone or never really existed to begin with. Dr. Sudi cuts to the core of the matter when he cites the silence of the extended Kennedy family on the fate of JFK and RFK. Even "the young ones". There is no "going back" to any fantasy America. Better for us to grasp and understand what it always really was.

  7. Good commentary from Los Alamos!

    There is at least one of the Kennedy family members who is interested in the truth about the assassination of JFK. This is Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., who is JFK's nephew. Here is what RFK Jr. writes about James Douglass's book "JFK and the Unspeakable," as it appears on the website of the publisher, Orbis Books:

    "In JFK and the Unspeakable Jim Douglass has distilled all the best available research into a very well-documented and convincing portrait of President Kennedy's transforming turn to peace, at the cost of his life. Personally, it has made a very big impact on me. After reading it in Dallas, I was moved for the first time to visit Dealey Plaza. I urge all Americans to read this book and come to their own conclusions about why he died and why -- after fifty years -- it still matters.” -- Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
