The End of Dollar Hegemony

Inaugural Address by John F. Kennedy

The first time I learned about this speech was in a high school class called ‘Problems of Democracy’.

Mr. Lasswell’s Pledge of Allegiance as Told by Red Skelton

This somewhat infamous ‘speech’ was given by Red Skelton during his show, the Red Skelton Hour, on January 14, 1969. (The recording was originally posted at Family Guardian) I do find it intriguing that he addresses the words ‘under god’ which has once again become an issue recently in California. While many sit on both […]

The American Nobility

Had any of us been alive during the American Revolution, the following speech would have been considered a common knowledge reminder for many –however, in modern times we have all but forgotten what it means to be free-born with god-given unalienable rights.
