    Quote of the Day - June

    June 1st

    March went out like a lion
    Awakin' up the water in the bay;
    Then April cried and stepped aside,
    And along came pretty little May!
    May was full of promises
    But she didn't keep 'em quickly enough for some
    And the crowd of doubtin' tonuses
    Was predictin' that the summer'd never come

    But it's comin' by dawn,
    We can feel it come,
    You can feel it in your heart
    You can see it in the ground
    You can see it in the trees
    You can smell it in the breeze
    Look around! Look around! Look around!

    June is bustin' out all over
    All over the meadow and the hill!
    Buds're bustin' outa bushes
    And the rompin' river pushes
    Ev'ry little wheel that wheels beside the mill!

    June is bustin' out all over
    The feelin' is gettin' so intense,
    That the young Virginia creepers
    Hev been huggin' the bejeepers
    Outa all the mornin' glories on the fence!
    Because it's June...
    June, June, June
    Just because it's June, June, June!

    -- Oscar Hammerstein - "Carousel"

    When they discover the center of the universe, a lot of people will be disappointed to discover they are not it.

    It seems to me that perfection of means and confusion of goals seems to characterize our age.

    Though force can protect in emergency, only justice, fairness, consideration and cooperation can finally lead men to the dawn of eternal peace.
    -- Dwight Eisenhower

    We shall not flag or fail. We shall go on to the end. We shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and the oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be. We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender.
    -- Winston Churchill


    June 6, 2005 is the 51st anniversary of "D Day". While great and many celebrations were held to commemorate the 50th anniversary, we must never forget what happened on that Normandy coastline and how it still has an effect on our lives today.

    Without question, the greatest invention in the history of mankind is beer. Oh, I grant you that the wheel was also a fine invention, but the wheel does not go nearly as well with pizza.

    For war, when we confront it truthfully, exposes the darkness within all of us. This darkness shatters the illusions many of us hold not only about the human race but about ourselves. Few of us confront our own capacity for evil, but this is especially true in wartime.

    We know how to speak many falsehoods that resemble real things, but we know, when we will, how to speak true things.
    -- Hesiod

    Point of order!
    Joseph McCarthy

    “Broadcast "gavel to gavel" on the ABC and DuMont networks from 22 April to 17 June 1954, the Army-McCarthy hearings were the first nationally televised congressional inquiry and a landmark in the emergent nexus between television and American politics. Ostensibly, the Army-McCarthy hearings convened to investigate a convoluted series of charges leveled by the junior Republican Senator from Wisconsin, Joseph R. McCarthy, at the U.S. Army and vice versa.”

    “The afternoon of 9 June 1954 brought the emotional climax of the hearings, an exchange replayed in myriad Cold War documentaries."

    “Ignoring a pre-hearing agreement between Welch and Cohn, McCarthy insinuated that one Fred Fischer, a young lawyer at Hale & Dorr, harbored communist sympathies. Welch responded with a righteous outburst that hit all the hot buttons: "Until this moment, senator, I think I never gauged your cruelty or recklessness....Have you no sense of decency, sir, at long last? Have you left no sense of decency?" When McCarthy tried to strike back, Welch cut him off and demanded the chairman "call the next witness." Pausing just a beat, the hushed gallery erupted in applause. The uncomprehending McCarthy, shot dead on live TV, turned to Cohn and stammered, "What happened?"

    June 14th - Flag Day - USA

    You're a Grand Old Flag by George M. Cohan

    You're a grand old flag,
    You're a high flying flag
    And forever in peace may you wave.
    You're the emblem of
    The land I love.
    The home of the free and the brave.
    Ev'ry heart beats true
    'neath the Red, White and Blue,
    Where there's never a boast or brag.
    Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
    Keep your eye on the grand old flag.

    The only sure bulwark of continuing liberty is a government strong enough to protect the interests of the people, and a people strong enough and well enough informed to maintain its sovereign control over the government.
    -- Franklin Delano Roosevelt

    Trivia:
    The Magna Carta was signed this date in 1215 by King John at Runnymede in England.
    What is interesting to note is that our Declaration of Independence and Constitution is supposedly based on this 1215 document but in fact the American documents are based an evolved 18th century document.
    Magna Carta
    British Library site
    Encarta - Magna Carta site

    But there was a charter that predated the “Great Charter” and it is said to be the document on which the Magna Carta is based. No copies of this document exist. (Thomas Costain wrote an interesting novel, “Below the Salt”, dealing with the original Henry I document and the signing of the Magna Carta.)

    “In his coronation charter (1100) Henry promised to remedy the alleged misrule of William II, this document was the first English royal charter of liberties, the ancestor of Magna Carta (1215). The king exploited his resources as feudal suzerain; yet in his reign occurred the beginning of the transformation of feudalism by the commutation of personal to financial service. The creation of the office of justiciar and the royal exchequer also constituted the first appearance of specialization in English government. Royal justice was brought to the local level by itinerant judges, and royal control over the kingdom was strengthened.
    Although many barons objected to the severity of his rule, Henry gave peace, security, and stability to his country”


    The above from http://www.hannahdustin.com/conqueror.htm
    (Scroll down to 2, Henry I "Beauclerc" "King of England" Ruled: Bet. 1100 - 1135)
