If you don’t know the story, let me sum it up for you: at the end of August, 1943 the country of Denmark was finally fully taken over by Nazi Germany. This meant, among other things, that the Jewish population of Denmark (roughly 8,000) was now in deadly danger: the Danish government had been, up to that point, politely, respectfully, and absolutely inflexibly refusing to allow Nazi Germany to persecute its Jewish citizens. While the story that the King of Denmark himself wore the yellow star is not true, what is true is that no Danish Jew did – and if you think that this is a minor point, well, no, it’s not: things like the star were the tools used to isolate Jews from the larger community, thus making it possible to go on with sequestering them into ghettos, then taking them away to be murdered.
Read the rest here.
While I was reading this, a thought kept going through my head…..would we, in today’s world, be as strong as the Danes were then? Some might, but as a nation, I have my doubts. And I seriously doubt that Obama would stand up against such odds.
I know I’m late on this, but I thought, under the circumstances of this post….
I seriously think that the federal gubmint needs to be featured on the new SoapNet show, Bank of Mom and Dad. It’s obvious they no more know how to live within a budget than a spoiled rotten 3 year old.
Everything this administration, and Congress, does, points more and more in the direction of tyranny. The arrogance of politicians, and the feckless eco-nazis really believe they have any control over this planet, and what it does? Give me a freakin’ break!
Looks like the state of New York is learning the hard way! You shaft the wealthy, they’re going to shaft you right back. Hint: Lower taxes, more business. More business, more in tax revenue. If I figured this out in my teens, you’d think that folks with big time college degrees could figure it out too.
Not all Chicagoans are all hyped up about having the Olympics invade their home town. But that won’t stop the Obamas from heading over to Copenhagen, on the taxpayers dime….naturally, to push to put that city into debt.
Guess some folks don’t believe in freedom of speech, or the press anymore though.
And, hey! Let’s not forget about a so called health care bill that is being shoved down our throats that will put people in jail for NOT buying their BS!
Criminy! How could I have forgotten about this little tidbit about one of Obama’s czars? Just who the hell is in charge? If this is the kind of people he associates with, praises, and puts in a position of power, I’d like to know just how in the world could he have ever been thought good POTUS material?!? Is this the hopey/changey you were expecting?
Ol’ Texas Fred’s family is multiplying by leaps and bounds! Welcome Master Austin Lane, weighing in at 5lbs, 2ozs. I’ve NO doubt the little fellow will become a thorn in the side of liberals in NO time at all! Heh!
