The Re-Writing of Pearl Harbor History to Demonize the USA

Apparently, it is no longer politically correct for the US Citizens to honor those who died in the Japanese Attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 without mentioning that the US was partly to blame. You see, as the world gets closer together everyone wants us to forget that surprise attack on our nation.

Not long ago, a prolific writer was chastised for even mentioning the attack on Pearl Harbor and how the US finally won the decisive Naval Battles in the South Pacific that followed. The writer was attacked on the grounds that telling the truth about the Japanese attack demonizes Japan. His reply to the criticism was indeed blunt, as he stated:

Please be aware first off that the United States of America is the greatest nation ever created in the history of mankind. If you deny that for any reason, there is no sense in discussing this any further. Demonizing the Japanese, no, I would not do that, but you know they attacked us first. That is the history, no need on re-writing it to serve some move to create a world collective.”

Perhaps, you have been on the tour of the USS Arizona in Hawaii? The Japanese to this day call the Pearl Harbor attack one of the greatest surprise attacks in human history. Many Americans, just do not see it that way. You see, if you were hit over the head by one of your friends with a sludge hammer, would you not consider that unacceptable?
 
Today, Japan is a friend of the US of course, but that does not negate the attack at Pearl Harbor, nor should that prevent us from honoring our fallen heroes of Pearl Harbor on that day. Indeed, we should not have unkind words for the Japanese, but there is nothing wrong with studying or remembering history to prevent being doomed from a repeat. Nor is that anything wrong with asking Americans to never forget that day.
 
It has taken a long time to mend the fence between Japan and the US; up until recently the Japanese businessmen would do whatever they could to stick it to US businessmen in business deals, that is merely the reality, so let’s not forget that either. If you have never run a business or dealt with Japanese business people in negotiation well into the 90s then you wouldn’t know that. And, they’d have owned much of our nation’s real estate had the real estate market not crashed in the early 90s.
 
We should probably also remember the patent issues as Japan grew their economic base, as well as the Deming Years with regards to automobile manufacturing. Apparently, we have forgotten that past also, and will continue to see repeats with China in that regard.
 
“Those who do not study their history are doomed to repeat.”
 
Those who accept a false or re-written history will also pay the price. We should never forget Pearl Harbor Day. It is part of our history and we should not brush it off or pretend it never happened. Because it did happen and US Service Men died.
 
Now, regardless of the fact that Karl von Clausewitz and his philosophy rightfully explain the use of pre-emption, we must never forget we were attacked on December 7, 1941. “A day that will live in Infamy,” or someone once said.

The History of Harley Street

Harley Street is an area in London that is synonymous with the medical profession. The street runs south from just south of Regents Park to just north of Mortimer Street, near Oxford Street. There are hundreds of private medical practises working there.

Back in the 18th century this area consisted of just a small number of houses in the village of Marylebone. As London grew Marylebone became incorporated within London and Harley Street begun to expand. Georgian style housing began to appear in the area and characterised that area of London. In 1911 the streets around the area were passed to Henrietta Cavendish Holles who later married Edward Harley, who the street is named after. Harley had the area developed into a larger residential area between the years of 1715 and 1720.

In the 1800’s doctors began to move into Harley Street and the surrounding area. Over time more and more moved to the area and started practicing from their homes and Harley Street became known as a centre for medical excellence. A central London location and large Georgian buildings made the area attractive. There was a particularly large growth in the mid to late 18th century, when within half a century the number of medical professionals working in the area increased ten fold. In 1873 the Medical Society of London opened in the area, and the Royal Society for medicine followed in 1912. These two organisations moving into the area further established it as the medical centre of Britain. By the mid 1900’s there were around 1,500 medical practices in area, and the number remains at around this number to this day.

Harley Street has the largest concentration of medical expertise in the world. It is sometime referred to as Medical London and is world famous for its medical practices. These days it has a large diversity of medical practices, including dentists, psychiatrists, psychologists, chiropractors, plastic surgeons and masseurs. It is at the forefront of medical science and technology. People travel vast distances to Harley Street to receive medical treatment from some of the world best Doctors.

An Interesting History Quiz

This is a trick question but I hope it is one that will serve to demonstrate the reasoning behind my beliefs.

What is the purpose of the Constitution of the United States of America as defined by the founding fathers?

Is it?

A) A way to mock the English and force them to see the folly of not allowing the US to have its independence without any need for violence or bloodshed.

B) A document which should be considered as “breathing” and “living” and subject to interpretation from any and all government officials who know so much more than we the people.

C) A list of rights guaranteed to the people of the United States of America.

D) An instrument which should be disregarded by politicians of future generations so that they may progress towards a more formal and distinguished form of global government or even evolve into a democracy.

E) A worthless piece of paper for politicians and citizens alike to blow their noses on and wipe their Aaaaa ….. aaaaaaaaa … ACHOO! (Gesundheit … to your health even)

F) A carefully thought out and planned document written in such a manner that it effectively restrained the rights and in many instances actively impeded and prevented the federal government from being the center of control and allocated powers of control and regulations to state governments in order to prevent a federalization of power.

And the answer is … I bet you got it wrong!

Most people are probably going to answer “C” which is in a very limited extent and with a little bit of twisting and interpretation, considered and commonly viewed to be correct … but it is NOT!

Looking at the state of political affairs in the playgrounds around the Beltway, many foreigners and even a good portion of Americans would be almost correct in answering “E” except that the question was what it was intended to be by the founding fathers.

Some of the more progressive people may very well believe that the answer is either “B” or “D” and given the current way of thinking, that would be reasonable to assume but still, the original question was in regards to what the founding fathers wrote about and what they proclaimed it to be.

The correct answer is actually “F” The Constitution was written specifically to limit any federal government. I have more bad news which is going to make other people mad before too long but sadly, facts will not change simply because someone does not accept them as or believe them to be facts. The powers of the federal government really were few and well-defined by the Constitution. Sadly, it is not held to those standards by government officials on any side of the political aisle in the USA anymore.

“The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government.”
— Patrick Henry

… when all government…in little as in great things, shall be drawn to Washington as the centre of all power, it will render powerless the checks provided of one government on another and will become as venal and oppressive as the government from which we separated.”
— Thomas Jefferson, 1821

The History of Gold Coins Issued by USA

The first gold coins in the United States were issued back in 1795. The Unites States Mint set the value of the U.S. Dollar at 24 grains of gold. The value was based in accordance with the world price on the precious metal, which at that time was $ 19.39 per troy ounce.

The U.S. gold coins started to be issued in seven different mints around the country as the Western Frontier of the Unites States began its expansion. The mints were set from Philadelphia to San Francisco. The sizes of coins varied from one dollar gold piece to fifty dollar denomination. It is worth mentioning that at that time the U.S. mints issued coins that were worth their weight in gold.

In 1834 and 1837 U.S. Congress modified the gold specifications by setting the price of gold at a mark of $ 20.67 per ounce. When the Great Depression occurred in 1933, President Roosevelt made gold an illegal asset for the citizens of the United States. During this period, by Roosevelt’s order, all gold coins were returned to U.S. Treasury and the melted into gold bars. After that the value of the U.S. dollar coin was set to $ 35 per ounce. The global outcome was to decrease by 40 percent the buying power of the dollar

When millions of gold coins were melted into gold bars, they became very rare and thus highly sought by various collectors. According to money experts only about one percent of gold coins can be found today. Each gold coin that survived till nowadays is highly valued by collectors and investors.

Every gold coins minted in the United States before 1933, is valued on individual basis according to its date, rarity, appeal among various collectors and its grade.

What is Rare Coin Grading Worth?

Coins that fall under the category “rare” are graded on ANA (American Numismatic Association). The scale ranges from 1 to 70. Coins are certified authentic and then PCGS or NGC, two leaders in providing coin grading services. For example a gold coin graded 1 has a slightly visible date, very wear and its value is a little above its weight in gold or precious metals. Obviously the better the coin is preserved the more a collector or investor in willing to pay for it.

Double Eagles

1933_double_eagle_gold_coin_reverse – Very often a collector starts his Gold Coin Collection of U.S. coins minted before 1933 with a $ 20 Double Eagle. Note that from 1849 to 1907 U.S. Mist issued the Liberty series. The Mint then changed the design of the Double Eagle into Saint-Gaudens. The latter were minted in the period between 1907 and 1933.

Starting a collection of Pre- 1933 U.S. gold coins is advantageous for several reasons:

“Pure Gold Content” – this means that each coin includes almost 1 troy ounce of gold.

“A Double Profit Opportunity” The gold market is continuously changing and $ 20 Double Eagle gold coins already have a history showing the continuously rising value, which goes 2 to 3 times higher in value if compared to the gold bullion alone.

The 1933 Saint-Gaudens Gold Double Eagle Coin

One of the most valuable, if not the most valuable, coin is considered to be the 1933 Saint-Gaudens Gold Double Eagle1933 Saint-Gaudens Gold Double Eagle. It actually was never officially issued. Still it appeared from 1907 until 1932. Although in 1933 there were 445,500 Double Eagle minted, none were released into circulation because of the changes made in currency laws during the Great Depression.

The result of the Great Depression was that president Franklin Roosevelt took America off the gold standard. The gold coins were drawn out of circulation and afterwards were not issued anymore. Besides, people had to return the ones they had

Later, in 1933, the Double Eagle coins were declared illegal. It was prohibited to own any of the gold coins, unless they had a collectible value. The same year Gold Double Eagle coinsGold Double Eagle coins were ordered to be melted by the U.S. Mint. By 1937 billions of gold bars were made out of these unique coins.

A few coins have escaped from being melted down. In1933 two of them were given by the Mint to the U.S. National Numismatic Collection at the Smithsonian Institute. These two Gold Double Eagle coins were known as the only legal specimens to ever become part of a coin collection. Still by 1952, eight additional coins were discovered. These were confiscated by the Secret Service.

Today 19 of the some of most valuable 1933 Gold Double Eagle coins are owned by a Philadelphian jeweler, Israel Switt.

History Of Cycling Jerseys-usa Jersey

Cycling jerseys were originally made of wool, bags made in the chest.
Lana keeps riders warm in cold weather, but it was too hot in warmer conditions.
Professional cycling with the manufacturer of the bicycle has been added to the front of the jerseys of the driver as a sponsor. Later, when the television coverage increased from racing bikes, started the company from outside the bike industry, see the increased value for the sponsors involved and cyclists money and prestige.
The technological development have on the shirts of wool were replaced by polyester, they were much more convenient for cyclists and better experienced to changing climatic conditions in racing.
The bags were transferred to the lower back, making travel easier and safer access. Zippers were introduced into the front of the shirt, designed after the short duration, in coping with the heat, and is often cyclists zipped fully open climb into the mountains in the Alps stages hot.

Cycling jerseys are returned since then to improve more and more resistant to cold, rain, but heavy rains are still all riders who seek the protection of a water-tight.

As in other sports as many replica kits are becoming increasingly popular. Now you can use the T-shirt, shorts, gloves and accessories from one of their favorite team cycling.

If you plan to start biking in the summer are, then it’s probably better to buy a T-shirt with the circulation of the zipper. If it is winter, buy a shirt with some zip, which is often cheaper to buy. Most T-shirts with 3 pockets on the back, away from every shirt that may not like long trips, you have a lot in his pockets.
I recommend a short-sleeved shirt, but also buy gloves. It is more versatile than the weather. A bright color is of course safer on the roads and there are many available fluorescent shirts, jerseys and between the professional team.
