There some things that just make ya sick. I am for an historic place to stay in good shape for history sake. There some thing eerie to me about this.
Keeping ‘Debsian’ Ideals Alive: The Eugene V. Debs Foundation celebrates 50th anniversary by Mark Bennett, The Tribune-Star
TERRE HAUTE — The concept of starting a foundation honoring American history’s most famous radical didn’t exactly warm every heart in his Midwestern hometown.
After all, 1962 “was almost the height of the Cold War,” said Charles King, a retired Indiana State University sociology professor.
The Eugene V. Debs Foundation formed anyway, behind “an alliance of Indiana State University faculty members, organized labor representatives, and a mixed group of men and women who shared ‘Debsian’ ideals,” according to a historical account by Robert Constantine, one of the co-founders, reprinted in the organization’s 2012 newsletter.
A half-century later, the home Debs and his wife, Kate, occupied on North Eighth Street in Terre Haute remains a National Historic Landmark and museum, detailing the life of a native son who became a pioneer of labor unionism, social justice crusader and five-time candidate for president atop the Socialist Party ticket. The Debs Foundation, created in 1962, has grown to 830 members “from everywhere,” said King, the organization’s secretary for the past 27 years.
Don’t let anybody tell you patriotism has died. When our fallen come home there are people to welcome them with flags waving and showing respect as they watch for our fallen come home to be buried. It is a show that brings tears to the eyes.
Community show patriotism at its finest by Mike Fletcher, Kokomo Tribune
The overwhelming support from the community for fallen soldier Sgt. Bradley Atwell continued Saturday during the funeral service and procession.
“I think it’s very respectful,” said Sherry Brinson, a member of the Chapel Hill Christian Church, where the services were held.
“We need to honor our fallen soldiers and pay a lot of respect to the men and women now serving,” she said as she took pictures of the Indiana Patriot Guard Riders motorcycles.
The Patriot Guard, along with the Marine Corps Honor Guard, gathered in the parking lot of the church to assemble prior to the services. The members with flags in hand lined the entrance to the church to greet Atwell’s family and friends and to show their unwavering support.
“It’s too bad we can’t show this kind of honor for people serving now,” Brinson said. “I had a brother who died in the Army and it meant a lot to our family when they came and showed us that respect.”
Herman Combs and his wife, Debbie, also stepped out of the church to check out the more than 200 Patriot Guard members’ motorcycles. The couple are volunteering in the kitchen at the church to provide food for the family and friends of Atwell.

What is the first thought that comes to your head when you see a title like this in your local newspaper. Rabbi Gedalyah Engel dies at age 93, remembered as champion of social justice
My thoughts weren’t on that this poor Rabbi Gedalyah Engel dying at which it should of been. My thought were on the latter part of the title. He was remember for championing social justice. To me social justice is of Socialism, Communism, and Nazism. I know it was terrible of me to think of this Gentleman as like George Soros. Nothing else I read in the article made me think bad of him except the social justice part about him. I am sorry I thought bad about him in that respect.
Of course, I did wonder was my local newspaper was showing their colors in even mentioning social justice.
What is your take about this?
Starting today, I will be putting my Bible Read and other Christian stuff at Christian Moments.
Also, the stuff I do on Indiana will be put up at In An Indiana Minute.
I did this because I thought I needed to spread things out. I thought it was getting cluttered here at My Daily Musing.

Local Marine recovering from injuries by By Lindsey Ziliak, Kokomo Tribune
On July 5, 20-year-old Lance Cpl. Zach Nelson was searching for improvised explosive devices in Afghanistan when the mine detection vehicle he was in hit a boulder in the road and flipped “violently.”
“They had been down this path many, many times,” his mother, Melinda Nelson of Kokomo said on a recent afternoon. “There were never any boulders there before.”
Family friend Jim Irwin said insurgents had put the rock there. It was flanked by IEDs on either side.
The vehicle’s driver had no choice but to go over the boulder.
Irwin said Lance Cpl. Nelson was in the most vulnerable spot in the vehicle. He was the gunner. He was standing up outside the vehicle and facing backward.
“He couldn’t even see it coming,” Irwin said.
When the vehicle started to roll, Nelson’s fellow Marines tried to pull him inside to protect him, but he still took the brunt of the impact, his mother said.
Kokomo — Marine Sgt. Bradley Atwell's body has arrived at Grissom Air Reserve Base. The procession to Kokomo will begin soon.
The official route of the funeral procession was released earlier today. It is as follows: It will leave Grissom Air Reserve Base between 10:30 and 10:45 a.m. and head south on U.S. 31. It will proceed to Center Road, where it will head east to Taylor High School, where it will take a brief pause. It will then head south on 400 East to Ind. 26, where it will then head west to Dixon Road. From there, it will turn onto Alto Road and end at Chapel Hill Church.

31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’
32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them.
33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
1 One day as Jesus was teaching the people in the temple courts and proclaiming the good news, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, together with the elders, came up to him.
2 “Tell us by what authority you are doing these things,” they said. “Who gave you this authority?”
3 He replied, “I will also ask you a question. Tell me:
4 John’s baptism—was it from heaven, or of human origin?”
5 They discussed it among themselves and said, “If we say, ‘From heaven,’ he will ask, ‘Why didn’t you believe him?’
6 But if we say, ‘Of human origin,’ all the people will stone us, because they are persuaded that John was a prophet.”
7 So they answered, “We don’t know where it was from.”
8 Jesus said, “Neither will I tell you by what authority I am doing these things.”
9 He went on to tell the people this parable: “A man planted a vineyard, rented it to some farmers and went away for a long time.
10 At harvest time he sent a servant to the tenants so they would give him some of the fruit of the vineyard. But the tenants beat him and sent him away empty-handed.
11 He sent another servant, but that one also they beat and treated shamefully and sent away empty-handed.
12 He sent still a third, and they wounded him and threw him out.
13 “Then the owner of the vineyard said, ‘What shall I do? I will send my son, whom I love; perhaps they will respect him.’
14 “But when the tenants saw him, they talked the matter over. ‘This is the heir,’ they said. ‘Let’s kill him, and the inheritance will be ours.’
15 So they threw him out of the vineyard and killed him. “What then will the owner of the vineyard do to them?
16 He will come and kill those tenants and give the vineyard to others.” When the people heard this, they said, “God forbid!”
17 Jesus looked directly at them and asked, “Then what is the meaning of that which is written: “‘The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone’?
18 Everyone who falls on that stone will be broken to pieces; anyone on whom it falls will be crushed.”
19 The teachers of the law and the chief priests looked for a way to arrest him immediately, because they knew he had spoken this parable against them. But they were afraid of the people.
20 Keeping a close watch on him, they sent spies, who pretended to be sincere. They hoped to catch Jesus in something he said, so that they might hand him over to the power and authority of the governor.
21 So the spies questioned him: “Teacher, we know that you speak and teach what is right, and that you do not show partiality but teach the way of God in accordance with the truth.
22 Is it right for us to pay taxes to Caesar or not?”
23 He saw through their duplicity and said to them,
24 “Show me a denarius. Whose image and inscription are on it?” “Caesar’s,” they replied.
25 He said to them, “Then give back to Caesar what is Caesar’s, and to God what is God’s.”
26 They were unable to trap him in what he had said there in public. And astonished by his answer, they became silent.
27 Some of the Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, came to Jesus with a question.
28 “Teacher,” they said, “Moses wrote for us that if a man’s brother dies and leaves a wife but no children, the man must marry the widow and raise up offspring for his brother.
29 Now there were seven brothers. The first one married a woman and died childless.
30 The second
31 and then the third married her, and in the same way the seven died, leaving no children.
32 Finally, the woman died too.
33 Now then, at the resurrection whose wife will she be, since the seven were married to her?”
34 Jesus replied, “The people of this age marry and are given in marriage.
35 But those who are considered worthy of taking part in the age to come and in the resurrection from the dead will neither marry nor be given in marriage,
36 and they can no longer die; for they are like the angels. They are God’s children, since they are children of the resurrection.
37 But in the account of the burning bush, even Moses showed that the dead rise, for he calls the Lord ‘the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.’
38 He is not the God of the dead, but of the living, for to him all are alive.”
39 Some of the teachers of the law responded, “Well said, teacher!”
40 And no one dared to ask him any more questions.
41 Then Jesus said to them, “Why is it said that the Messiah is the son of David?
42 David himself declares in the Book of Psalms: “‘The Lord said to my Lord: “Sit at my right hand
43 until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet.”’
44 David calls him ‘Lord.’ How then can he be his son?”
45 While all the people were listening, Jesus said to his disciples,
46 “Beware of the teachers of the law. They like to walk around in flowing robes and love to be greeted with respect in the marketplaces and have the most important seats in the synagogues and the places of honor at banquets.
47 They devour widows’ houses and for a show make lengthy prayers. These men will be punished most severely.”
1 Then the word of the Lord came to me:
2 “You must not marry and have sons or daughters in this place.”
3 For this is what the Lord says about the sons and daughters born in this land and about the women who are their mothers and the men who are their fathers:
4 “They will die of deadly diseases. They will not be mourned or buried but will be like dung lying on the ground. They will perish by sword and famine, and their dead bodies will become food for the birds and the wild animals.”
5 For this is what the Lord says: “Do not enter a house where there is a funeral meal; do not go to mourn or show sympathy, because I have withdrawn my blessing, my love and my pity from this people,” declares the Lord.
6 “Both high and low will die in this land. They will not be buried or mourned, and no one will cut themselves or shave their head for the dead.
7 No one will offer food to comfort those who mourn for the dead—not even for a father or a mother—nor will anyone give them a drink to console them.
8 “And do not enter a house where there is feasting and sit down to eat and drink.
9 For this is what the Lord Almighty, the God of Israel, says: Before your eyes and in your days I will bring an end to the sounds of joy and gladness and to the voices of bride and bridegroom in this place.
10 “When you tell these people all this and they ask you, ‘Why has the Lord decreed such a great disaster against us? What wrong have we done? What sin have we committed against the Lord our God?’
11 then say to them, ‘It is because your ancestors forsook me,’ declares the Lord, ‘and followed other gods and served and worshiped them. They forsook me and did not keep my law.
12 But you have behaved more wickedly than your ancestors. See how all of you are following the stubbornness of your evil hearts instead of obeying me.
13 So I will throw you out of this land into a land neither you nor your ancestors have known, and there you will serve other gods day and night, for I will show you no favor.’
14 “However, the days are coming,” declares the Lord, “when it will no longer be said, ‘As surely as the Lord lives, who brought the Israelites up out of Egypt,’
15 but it will be said, ‘As surely as the Lord lives, who brought the Israelites up out of the land of the north and out of all the countries where he had banished them.’ For I will restore them to the land I gave their ancestors.
16 “But now I will send for many fishermen,” declares the Lord, “and they will catch them. After that I will send for many hunters, and they will hunt them down on every mountain and hill and from the crevices of the rocks.
17 My eyes are on all their ways; they are not hidden from me, nor is their sin concealed from my eyes.
18 I will repay them double for their wickedness and their sin, because they have defiled my land with the lifeless forms of their vile images and have filled my inheritance with their detestable idols.”
19 Lord, my strength and my fortress, my refuge in time of distress, to you the nations will come from the ends of the earth and say, “Our ancestors possessed nothing but false gods, worthless idols that did them no good.
20 Do people make their own gods? Yes, but they are not gods!”
21 “Therefore I will teach them— this time I will teach them my power and might. Then they will know that my name is the Lord.
1 A prophecy against the Desert by the Sea: Like whirlwinds sweeping through the southland, an invader comes from the desert, from a land of terror.
2 A dire vision has been shown to me: The traitor betrays, the looter takes loot. Elam, attack! Media, lay siege! I will bring to an end all the groaning she caused.
3 At this my body is racked with pain, pangs seize me, like those of a woman in labor; I am staggered by what I hear, I am bewildered by what I see.
4 My heart falters, fear makes me tremble; the twilight I longed for has become a horror to me.
5 They set the tables, they spread the rugs, they eat, they drink! Get up, you officers, oil the shields!
6 This is what the Lord says to me: “Go, post a lookout
and have him report what he sees.
7 When he sees chariots with teams of horses, riders on donkeys or riders on camels, let him be alert, fully alert.”
8 And the lookout shouted, “Day after day, my lord, I stand on the watchtower; every night I stay at my post.
9 Look, here comes a man in a chariot with a team of horses. And he gives back the answer: ‘Babylon has fallen, has fallen! All the images of its gods lie shattered on the ground!’”
10 My people who are crushed on the threshing floor, I tell you what I have heard from the Lord Almighty, from the God of Israel.
11 A prophecy against Dumah: Someone calls to me from Seir, “Watchman, what is left of the night? Watchman, what is left of the night?”
12 The watchman replies, Morning is coming, but also the night. If you would ask, then ask; and come back yet again.”
13 A prophecy against Arabia: You caravans of Dedanites, who camp in the thickets of Arabia,
14 bring water for the thirsty; you who live in Tema,
bring food for the fugitives.
15 They flee from the sword, from the drawn sword,
from the bent bow and from the heat of battle.
16 This is what the Lord says to me: “Within one year, as a servant bound by contract would count it, all the splendor of Kedar will come to an end.
17 The survivors of the archers, the warriors of Kedar, will be few.” The Lord, the God of Israel, has spoken.
This article makes one wonder what Obama is trying to pull something on the American people.
Who Is White House Visitor Hisham Altalib? by Michelle Malkin, GOPUSA
On Friday, March 30, 2012, Hisham Y. Altalib visited the White House. According to visitor logs, Altalib was received by Joshua DuBois, the director of President Obama's Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. Four days later, White House officials welcomed a foreign delegation of the radical Sharia-enforcing Muslim Brotherhood from Egypt.
The White House meeting with overseas Muslim Brotherhood leaders was reported in April by a few mainstream journalists and questioned loudly by conservative media. But the White House confab in March with U.S.-based Altalib -- which appears to be a prep session with the global Muslim Brotherhood's American advance team -- has received no attention until now.
So, who is Hisham Yahya Altalib? What is his agenda?
And why exactly did the Obama administration conduct domestic "faith-based" outreach with this Muslim Brotherhood figure in Virginia, who just happens to be 1) tied to bloody jihad and 2) a major contributor to the left-wing Center for Constitutional Rights, the group of jihadi-sympathizing lawyers who helped spring suspected Benghazi terror plotter Abu Sufian bin Qumu from Gitmo?
Altalib is an Iraqi-born Muslim identified by the FBI as a Muslim Brotherhood operative before he moved to America in the 1970s to earn an advanced electrical engineering degree from Purdue University in Indiana. By his own account, Altalib "soon became active in Islamic work in North America, which continues to this day."
He was the "first full-time director of the Leadership Training Department of the Muslim Students Association of the United States and Canada (MSA)" -- a longtime Muslim Brotherhood front group whose explicit goal is to "conquer" America through Islamic propagandizing.
Altalib is also a founding member of the SAAR Foundation and the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT). Last year, his online biography proudly notes, he was "awarded the ISNA (Islamic Society of North America) Community Service Award." The Saudi-subsidized ISNA is regarded as the primary U.S. umbrella group for Muslim Brotherhood fronts and was named specifically by the global MB godfathers as a key player in their "Grand Jihad" strategy of infiltration from within.
SAAR was founded in Herndon, Va., in 1983 as part of a radical Islamic charity front for Saudi financiers called the SAFA Group. The feds raided SAAR's offices in 2002 as part of Operation Green Quest. Investigators confiscated 500 boxes and seven trucks' worth of documents illuminating the network's terror ties to the Al Taqwa Bank (a Swiss-based Muslim bank suspected of funding the 9/11 plot) and the Muslim Brotherhood.
Mourdock campaign launches GOP slogan, Donnelly criticisms by Brian Francisco, Journal Gazette
The Indiana Republican Party’s “Right Track Tour” was thrown off schedule Wednesday by a wreck on Interstate 69 and Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign.
Senate candidate Richard Mourdock and Sen. Dan Coats, R-Ind., were a half-hour late for a rally at Allen County Republican Party Headquarters. They said their vehicle got stuck in traffic backed up by a crash along northbound I-69 between Indianapolis and Fort Wayne.
Mourdock and Coats were to have been joined by GOP Sens. Rob Portman of Ohio and John Cornyn of Texas. But party officials said Portman stayed in Ohio to campaign for Romney. Cornyn, who had traveled with Mourdock and Coats, went straight to a private fundraising reception for Mourdock at a Fort Wayne home. Portman was expected to attend the fundraiser at some point.
State Treasurer Mourdock, Coats and state Republican Chairman Eric Holcomb launched the “Right Track Tour” with the slogan “More Jobs, Less Debt, Lower Taxes” printed on a mock interstate highway sign. Holcomb said the slogan will be used by Republican candidates for the last 40 days of the campaign.
As usual, Mourdock criticized his Democratic opponent, 2nd District Rep. Joe Donnelly, for supporting President Obama’s health care law and economic stimulus spending. Mourdock mentioned that Donnelly describes himself as a moderate but had confirmed in a published report Wednesday that he plans to vote for Obama.
Farrakhan, the president of Iran would love to have you. I heard Iran has beautiful scenery. You would love it there. You wouldn’t have to put up with us, evil Americans. See ya.
Oh, wait, you might like Egypt better. Their having a party of rioting “I hate evil America” kind of thing. You would enjoy that. They have those pretty pyramids to look at. The gorgeous desert sands of the Sahara. I heard the Sahara was good place to get lost in.
Farrakhan, here is a song for you.
The thunder of motorcycles signaled the arrival of the hearse carrying U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Kyle Osborn.
The 26-year old native of Stockwell died Sept. 13 as the result of injuries in Muqer, Afghanistan, while serving with the 1st Battalion, 503rd Infantry Regiment.
“I’ll be honored if I get to see him go by,” Brooke Wamsley said. “It’s the least we can do for someone who died for us.”
Osborn’s remains arrived by plane at Purdue Airport about 9:40 a.m. Thursday.
Under cool, gray skies, community members stood along the hearse’s route from the airport to Hippensteel Funeral Home at 822 N. Ninth St. in Lafayette.
People who never met Osborn took time to stop and show their gratitude.
