THOUGHTS OF THE DAY — MONDAY 7/14

CONGRATULATIONS TO THE GERMAN SOCCER TEAM FOR THEIR VICTORY IN THE WORLD CUP YESTERDAY!

BATTLE HISTORY OF THE DAY:

THE ALAMO, 1836

The Battle of the Alamo (February 23 – March 6, 1836) was a pivotal event in the Texas Revolution. Following a 13-day siege, Mexican troops under President General Antonio López de Santa Annalaunched an assault on the Alamo Mission near San Antonio de Béxar(modern-day San Antonio, Texas, United States). All of the Texiandefenders were killed. Santa Anna’s cruelty during the battle inspired many Texians—both Texas settlers and adventurers from the United States—to join the Texian Army. Buoyed by a desire for revenge, the Texians defeated the Mexican Army at the Battle of San Jacinto, on April 21, 1836, ending the revolution.

DAYS UNTIL NEXT POTUS ELECTION:

847 DAYS, 1 HOUR, 5 MINUTES, 56 SECONDS 

QUOTE OF THE DAY:

“Remember upon the conduct of each depends the fate of all.”

-Alexander the Great, the greatest military leader of all time

VIDEO OF THE DAY:

ROAD RAGE ILLEGALS GANG UP ON BLACK GUY

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uhmOzhPRxQs

A bunch of ILLEGALS in one car chase down and gang up on guy.  No one does anything to help the guy.  A typical scene she it come to dealing with ILLEGALS and how there are two sets of laws, one for ILLEGALS and the other for tax paying Americans.

THOUGHT OF THE DAY:

KRAV MAGA SELF-DEFENSE FOR WOMEN

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1RwGt9GFGyA

It does not matter what self-defense courses you take only that you start doing something.  It takes but a little kick back to a maggot to make them go somewhere else.  Many times it is simply the confidence you show while walking that makes a maggot do something else.  You will also work on tactics which can mean when, where, and how you move about in the world.  Self-Defense can mean as little as going to the bookstore reading and looking at books on protecting yourself.  The point is, to start simply and continue.

BOOK OF THE DAY:

Todays book is David Ignatius’ THE DIRECTOR.

I love this guys books and have read many of them.  The best being BLOODMONEY and BODY OF LIES.  The Director, I looked forward to reading for some time.  The writing in the book is excellent, the research excellent, the characters are interesting, but the story lacks a lot.  To be blunt, it was not very good.  It doesn’t make sense even from a fictional book standpoint.  Maybe I put too much pressure on the book, and the writer, but when you throw out into the world leaders of our major intelligence agencies, you should have  a great story to go with it.  I found it amusing the hiding of the President in the story like this drama could have transpired without any actions directly by POTUS.  Anyway, there is a reason they make more pens, paper and computers have more power and memory, and one of them is the ability to start over, and write another book.
