   Balogreene  Re-watching one of my favorite shows, John Adams, originally on HBO, I watch it on DVD or Amazon Prime. Abigail and John are walking their land, and she says do you realize we've been married 14 years and it's not half that time we've had the joy of being together. Then, they show a scene with the couple in bed. in 1777 Abigail asks where he is going, she knows he is not staying. He is going to Paris. For once Abigail resists before she relents.

On the Main page they were talking about Nancy Pelosi's bizarre comments on women's suffrage. Many Main Page commenters thought women had nothing to do with our battle for independence. John Adams gave his all for this country. Abigail gave more. She is a role model for all Americans, but maybe especially for us women. How to support our nation, no matter the cost to ourselves.

   Belwhatter  Your comments on the John Adams story reminded me of the achievements of the leaders at that time - knowledge of the classics, the Bible and the law, the privations they endured without our so called modern conveniences, the harrowing surgery their daughter underwent for breast cancer, John's sense of duty and Abigail's incredible patience and good counsel. I wonder if we will ever be so blessed again to have men and women of such caliber.

   ScarletPimpernel  I loved this HBO series. Abigail Adams was a gutsy woman. I remember the scene where she had her children vaccinated from smallpox. This was very brave of her, since it was very new. Nancy Pelosi and her ilk do not hold a candle to Abigail.

I also enjoyed the scene in Holland, when John Adams went to the Dutch to ask for a loan to build fleet, I believe. He was coughing and when asked if he was well, he said the weather there was "insalubrious". One of the Dutch officials asked his colleague in Dutch, "Bad weather for a loan"? Adams didn't get the loan…this time. But I loved this scene; it was a contrast to the silliness and frivolity of the French Court.

   Belwhatter  Straitpath - that is heartwarming to hear. The spirit is not dead in many hearts - would that we could start over and toss aside all the unconstitutional legislating that has been foisted on us.

   Uno  I dunno if there's a name for it, but basically I borrow a little here, borrow a little there, add a pinch of salt, a dollop of mustard and pepper it with sarcasm. I think it's an old recipe for serving up snakes and lizards, if ya know whut I mean...

   Safetydude  Well, I finally feel obliged to take issue with Unos' first adjective; he ain't cheap.
The Obama's spend our money, on themselves, like drunken sailor's(apologies to all you Swabbies )on a three day shore leave in Bangkok or Hong Kong.

   Gerty  I think this is curious, Mr. Right and I think it bears looking into.

Only once have I had a comment go away, but then again, it WAS rather objectionable.

Anyway---hope you are enjoying the beginning of another year having a go at the brains of some of our luckier kids!

   Uno  Well "cheap" does not have to necessarily be the price one paid for something. People pay a lot for junk all the time. In the case of the Øbamboozler he's a like a knock-off Rolex. It cost a pretty penny, but it's still just a cheap watch! Reason 1056 why I call him the Øbamboozler!

   Bettijo  Excellent article!

"In 1950, female-headed households were 18 percent of the black population. Today it's close to 70 percent. One study of 19th-century slave families found that in up to three-fourths of the families, all the children lived with the biological mother and father. In 1925 New York City, 85 percent of black households were two-parent households. Herbert Gutman, author of "The Black Family in Slavery and Freedom, 1750-1925," reports, "Five in six children under the age of six lived with both parents." Also, both during slavery and as late as 1920, a teenage girl raising a child without a man present was rare among blacks."
