Lethal Neglect: The Warsaw Ghetto

Warning: graphic footage.

The Warsaw Ghetto was a Nazi experiment in the use of Lethal Neglect as a
means of execution.

Most of the footage was filmed by the Nazis who sought to document the day-to-day decline in the health of residents walled off from the rest of the community.

The idea of lethal selection as a means of execution was an American idea, first described by Paul Popenoe and Roswell Hill Johnson in the 1918 handbook,  Applied Eugenics.

A quote from an early 201th Century Eugenics advocate, Alexis Carrel, who says that the disabled should be executed.
From a December 2010 article in The New Statesman: When America believed in eugenics.

This Memorial Day it’s important to remember the enemy: the enemy is racism, ignorance, intolerance, religious bigotry, lies, persecution, and murder.

The enemy is fascism, in all of its forms, wherever it emerges.

Little Venice to Abbey Road: Sporting and Musical Landmarks

a post from London Wlogger. it’s interesting that a few seconds by the Beatles on a crosswalk infused the spot with so much meaning?

London Wlogger

Welcome one and all 🙂 Last week my walk ended in Italian Gardens, and the theme of Italy continues as this week I start in Venice, well Little Venice! No Italian adventures just yet! I’ll then go along my favourite stretch of water, the Regent’s Canal, before going past The Liberal Jewish Synagogue and St John’s Wood Church. In between that I’ll be passing by Lord’s Cricket Ground and ending at a musical landmark, Abbey Road. So, let’s begin the journey!

mpp Little Venice to Abbey Road

Located near Paddington and Maida Vale, Little Venice is a scenic and very picturesque riverside area. Its history can be traced back to the 1810s when a pool was created where the Regent’s Canal and the Paddington arm of the Grand Junction Canal met. Back then it was known as the Paddington Broadwater.

There are a couple of accounts as to where the name ‘Little Venice’…

There’s a poison in This Court that will Kill us All

GPN-2000-001658

The title of this post comes from “Camelot.”

I was doing research today at the Internet Archives for a project.

I needed a good public domain photo of John Kennedy and ran a search. One of the returns was the 1960 Debate between Kennedy and Nixon.

An estimated 70 million citizens watched the first televised Presidential debate.

I watched the opening and marveled at the complex questions and answers.

Kennedy’s task was to convince his fellow citizens that he understood the separation of church and State and that he would follow the rule of law.

Kennedy stated:

“…because I am a Catholic, and no Catholic has ever been elected President, the real issues in this campaign have been obscured — perhaps deliberately, in some quarters less responsible than this. So it is apparently necessary for me to state once again — not what kind of church I believe in, for that should be important only to me — but what kind of America I believe in.

I believe in an America that is officially neither Catholic, Protestant nor Jewish; where no public official either requests or accept instructions on public policy from the Pope, the National Council of Churches or any other ecclesiastical source; where no religious body seeks to impose its will directly or indirectly upon the general populace or the public acts of its officials, and where religious liberty is so indivisible that an act against one church is treated as an act against all.

I had a moment of cognitive dissonance when I read that Presidential Candidate Ted Cruz paid a visit to a “religious liberty conference” where he was introduced by a pastor who openly calls for the state to execute gays.

Cruz made the following comment: “Cruz: “Any president who doesn’t begin his day on his knees isn’t fit to be commander in chief.”

There’s a poison in our Nation and its killing our Democracy.

Here is a portion of Kennedy’s opening statement in 1960:

“I don’t want the talents of any American to go to waste. I know that there are those who want to turn everything over to the government. I don’t at all. I want the individuals to meet their responsibilities. And I want the states to meet their responsibilities. But I think there is also a national responsibility. The argument has been used against every piece of social legislation in the last twenty-five years. The people of the United States individually could not have developed the Tennessee Valley; collectively they could have. A cotton farmer in Georgia or a peanut farmer or a dairy farmer in Wisconsin and Minnesota, he cannot protect himself against the forces of supply and demand in the market place; but working together in effective governmental programs he can do so. Seventeen million Americans, who live over sixty-five on an average Social Security check of about seventy-eight dollars a month, they’re not able to sustain themselves individually, but they can sustain themselves through the social security system. I don’t believe in big government, but I believe in effective governmental action.” John Kennedy 1960

Listen to all of it.  Hear the sound of reason and intellect.

King Arthur: Proposition. Right or wrong. They have the might. So, right or wrong. They’re always right. That’s wrong. Right?

Right.

“Jesus Christ is the king of the president of the United States, whether he admits it or not!”

Gay death penalty advocate Pastor Kevin Swanson

There is a poison loose in this Nation and the only force that can stop it from killing us is us.
