Question of the day:  What country[ies] sold Palestine out for the Jews?

On November 2, 1917, Foreign Secretary Arthur James Balfour writes an important letter to Britain’s most illustrious Jewish citizen, Baron Lionel Walter Rothschild, expressing the British government’s support for a Jewish homeland in Palestine. The letter would eventually become known as the Balfour Declaration.

Britain’s support for the Zionist movement came from its concerns regarding the direction of the First World War. Aside from a genuine belief in the righteousness of Zionism, held by Lloyd George among others, Britain’s leaders hoped that a statement supporting Zionism would help gain Jewish support for the Allies.

On November 2, Balfour sent his letter to Lord Rothschild, a prominent Zionist and a friend of Chaim Weizmann, stating that: “His Majesty’s Government view with favor the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people.”

The influence of the Balfour Declaration on the course of post-war events was immediate: According to the “mandate” system created by the Versailles Treaty of 1919, Britain was entrusted with the administration of Palestine, with the understanding that it would work on behalf of both its Jewish and Arab inhabitants.

Question of the day: Why hasn't the truth about slavery been taught to American children? Slavery existed on American soil for over 100 years ,before the Declaration of Independence was signed. Slavery didn't begin in the United States of America, but-slavery
ended after the new nation was created.

Our children of the 'melting pot' regardless of the blood running through their veins ,are 100% Americans.

“SLAVERY IS NOT just something that just happened with the people who were white to people who were Black,” said Lisa Kinnemore, a member of Georgia’s state board of education, as it deliberated a resolution on Thursday restricting classroom discussion of racism. “Black people were actually slaves to Black people. It goes all the way to back even to ancient times, slavery in Egypt and Rome and all around the world.”

It's a fact that "the institution of slavery" was imported to the United States of America.

However, slavery in America begin in 1619 [ a year before the arrival of the Mayflower in New England] when the privateer The White Lion brought 20 African slaves ashore in the British colony of Jamestown, Virginia. The crew had seized the Africans from the Portugese slave ship Sao Jao Bautista. https://www.history.com/topics/black-history/slavery

The Captain of the White Lion, John Jope, traded the captured Angolans to the Virginians represented by Governor George Yeardley and his Cape Merchant Abraham Piersey. These were in turn taken into servitude in local homes and plantation.  https://hampton.gov/3584/1619-African-Arrival-Exhibit

Drawing on the latest research, this exhibit tells the story of the Africans' home in Angola, how they came to be enslaved aboard a Spanish slave ship San Juan Bautista, the terrible 10,000 nautical mile voyage that brought them to Virginia, and their lives on the farms and plantations in the new colony.

In late August 1619 the privateer White Lion arrived off Point Comfort near present day Fort Monroe. Aboard was a captive cargo of "..not any thing but 20. and odd Negroes, which the Governor and Cape Marchant bought for victualls…" (John Rolfe, 1619. Letter to Sir Edwin Sandys of the Royal Virginia Company).

These 20 individuals were the first Africans arriving in the new Virginia colony. Their names, given by Portuguese missionaries: Antony, Isabela, William, Angela, Anthony, Frances, Margaret, Anthony, John, Edward, Anthony and others whose names are not yet known.

The Virginia colony's first Africans had lived in the Ndongo Kingdom in Angola in West Central Africa on a lush, green, high plateau 150 miles from the Atlantic. The Portuguese and their mercenary allies, the Imbangala, waged war on the Ndongo kingdom, the most powerful state in the Mbundu region, to gain control of the region and provide slaves for the trade.

The Angolans on the White Lion had been taken from the Spanish slave ship San Juan Bautista. The Captain of the White Lion, John Jope, traded the captured Angolans to the Virginians represented by Governor George Yeardley and his Cape Merchant Abraham Piersey. These were in turn taken into servitude in local homes and plantation.


The exhibit details how the Africans came into the possession of Captain Jope and taken aboard the White Lion, including the politics and piracy that put them in the hands of the Englishmen who had taken them from the Spanish slave trader and diverted them from their original destination of Vera Cruz in Mexico to Virginia.

Contained in the exhibit is a pair of slave shackles from the period, a hoe and axe dating from around 1660 unearthed at the Thomas Jarvis site in Hampton (where the Hampton History Museum now stands), images of period maps of Virginia and West Africa, 17th century artists depictions of encounters in Africa and arrival in Virginia, as well as charts detailing the arduous journey that the Africans were subjected to, a model of the White Lion and other interpretive materials.   https://hampton.gov/3584/1619-African-Arrival-Exhibit

Question of the day:      Which came first the chicken or the egg?

The chicken of course. That's like asking who come first the parents or the baby.

If were going by the Bible, god created the animals, hence god created the chicken. Therefore the chicken came first.

It's a scientific fact that for there to be  a baby chick- there must be the joining of a male sperm and a female egg.  Any way you look at it the parents  had to exist before the baby human or the baby chicken.

Question of the day: Is Jamie Dimon a racist?

I think so....going by JPMorgan's dealings and interest in U.S. Steel Company.

On August 26, 2007, U. S. Steel also entered into a Commitment Letter with JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. (“JPMorgan Chase”), J.P. Morgan Securities, Inc. (“JPMorgan”) and The Bank of Nova Scotia (“Scotia Capital”) pursuant to which (a) JPMorgan and Scotia Capital agreed to structure, arrange and syndicate for U. S. Steel two senior credit facilities in an aggregate amount of $900,000,000 (the “Facilities”); (b) JPMorgan Chase and Scotia Capital committed to provide the full amount of the Facilities; (c) JPMorgan Chase agreed to serve as administrative agent for the Facilities; and (d) Scotia Capital agreed to serve as syndication agent for the Facilities. The Facilities consist of a $400 million one-year term loan and a $500 million three-year term loan, both of which have terms substantially similar to U. S. Steel’s existing five-year $750 million revolving credit facility.
https://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/1163302/000119312507192556/d8k.htm

 United States Steel Corporation is an integrated steel producer with annual raw steelmaking capability of 17.8 million tons.  U. S. Steel is engaged in the  production, sale and transportation of sheet, plate, tin mill and tubular steel
mill products, coke, taconite pellets and coal; the management of mineral resources; real estate development; and engineering and consulting services in the United States; and, through its subsidiary U. S. Steel Kosice, the
production and sale of steel products and coke in Central Europe.      https://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/1163302/0001163302-03-000010.txt


What's more interesting is that while Jamie Dimon (JPMorganChase & Company)plays the role of antislaverist; JPMorgan is/has been a 'book runner"for U.S. Steel:

One such company was United States Steel as Baker served as a director on the company’s financial board alongside J.P. Morgan and a few others since the inception of the company in 1901.[7] Morgan played a leading role in the merging of Andrew Carnegie’s Carnegie Steel Company and William Henry Moore’s National Steel Company to create U.S. Steel, a massive enterprise that eventually became one of the largest producers of steel globally.[8] Morgan chose to involve his close friend, Baker, in the project perhaps seeking Baker’s financial expertise and influence....

According to journalist Douglas Blackmon’s 2008 Pulitzer Prize-winning book Slavery by Another Name: The Re-Enslavement of Black Americans from the Civil War to World War II, U.S. Steel was among the largest users of convict leasing which he calls “slavery by another name.”[9] Blackmon asserts that the “millions of tons of coal brought to the surface…” by convict laborers who were occasionally worked to death was “essential to U.S. Steel’s production of iron.”[10] Through U.S. Steel’s acquisition of the Tennessee Coal, Iron and Railroad Company, it was able to operate seamlessly in the South, accruing millions of dollars in profit off the backs of forced labor.[11] Although Baker is not mentioned by name in Blackmon’s book, Baker figured prominently into U.S. Steel’s leadership group, and as a result, made significant financial and personal investment in the company. It was, therefore, in Baker’s best interest that U.S. Steel reached substantial profit margins.

Question of the day: How many pot-heads know the side effects of marijuana?


My daughter would be the first to tell you that weed has ate up her memory. But because she is addicted to marijuana ...she just makes it a part of her 'normal life style'. At age 40 she was dignosed as having dementra. It breaks my heart to know that any country would make  legalize/or even tolerate those distribing [selling weed]in ANY form to its citizens. Greed don't have feelings and the greedy just don't care.  jt

Marijuana, weed, cannabis, hashish, bud, skunk, ganja, ‘erb and so many other names are used for the naturally occurring substance that has been used for hundreds of years as a relaxant or a mild hallucinogenic. Marijuana is actually a Spanish word and refers to the dried leaves, flowers, stems or seeds of a hemp plant known as Cannabis Sativa.

One of most active ingredients of marijuana is Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, commonly referred to as THC, which has the potential for making humans high.

When THC enters the blood, its mind-altering capabilities come into action pretty quickly. THC and some other compounds can affect the way your body works.

Most types of cannabis are mild, however, strong cannabis (e.g. skunk or purple haze) or too much usage can have stronger effects such as hallucination while some people also report increased anxiety and paranoia. Although it doesn’t augment risk-taking behavior like alcohol does, weed does impair mental functions such as memory, attention, and performance, which makes driving or operating heavy machinery risky.

While many believe marijuana to be extremely dangerous, it’s actually considerably less harmful than other substances in the same class such as barbiturates, amphetamines etc. In fact, occasional use of weed is hardly ever associated with any health issues. Even for serious users, science has yet to prove any solid evidence of major health problems for the users or the society. Especially in individuals who are otherwise healthy, the biggest real harm marijuana can do is impaired control of movements.

When smoked, marijuana can increase your heart rate up to two times from the normal rate. The increased heartbeat rate is often linked to increased chances of heart attack, and that’s why doctors recommend heart patients to stay away from any form of cannabis.

Modern scientific studies confirm that unlike tobacco cigarettes, smoking cannabis isn’t linked to higher chances of getting lung cancer. But it can cause a cough and chest colds, and extended heavy use is also associate with lung irritation.

Some people believe they achieve better concentration and mental stability after smoking weed, but THC in cannabis can have both short-term and long-term effects on the human brain.

For men, frequent heavy use of marijuana can affect sexual health by lowering their testosterone levels and sperm count, which could result in reduced fertility. Likewise, pregnant women, as well as babies in their womb, can be affected by marijuana use. For instance, because of the high levels of carbon monoxide in the smoke, birth weight could be lower than normal of the children whose mother has been smoking weed during pregnancy.
https://vapingdaily.com/marijuana-side-effects/

The study was a meta-review of research looking at sperm counts over the past four decades, and it included 185 studies that encompassed more than 40,000 men. Between 1973 and 2011, the paper's authors concluded, the men's sperm counts fell by more than 50 percent. https://www.discovermagazine.com/health/sperm-counts-are-on-the-decline-is-the-human-race-in-danger

The rising use of these products has raised questions about the impact on the heart. Evidence has shown that recreational use of any of these products is not beneficial for the heart, although specific mechanisms behind these effects are still to be determined. Recent studies have determined specific pulmonary effects, particularly with THC-containing e-liquids causing e-cigarette or vaping product use-associated lung injury  (EVALI).

“Even if the cardiovascular signal turns out not to be as strong as for pulmonary disease, it is not likely that these behaviors and these products are going to be safe overall,” Michael J. Blaha, MD, MPH, director of clinical research and professor of medicine at the Johns Hopkins Ciccarone Center for the Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease and a Cardiology Today Next Gen Innovator, said in an interview.

The American Heart Association published a scientific statement in Circulation, which stated there is no documented benefit of cannabis use for CVD prevention or treatment. Moreover, the statement detailed preliminary evidence that suggests cannabis use may harm the heart and blood vessels.

AHA scientific statement writing group member Jamal S. Rana, MD, PhD, FACC, chief of cardiology at Kaiser Permanente Oakland Medical Center and adjunct researcher in the division of research at Kaiser Permanente in Oakland, California, told Cardiology Today the statement included the latest available data and addressed the clinical, policy and public health implications of the issue.

Question of the day: When is a life not a life?
One cannot kill what is not alive.
http://thespiritwithinpoetry.com/BABYJUSTICE.jpg

Not always do those feeding people the news do justice to their occupation  http://thespiritwithinpoetry.com/baby_justice.htm

I helplessly watched my baby struggle for life, in the palms of my hands. I witnessed my baby's life and death, while I watched. My baby was only 24 weeks old but he was a fully formed tiny baby.   

People who think abortion is a woman's right to choose would change their mind ,if they had witnessed what this woman and mother  had witnessed , holding  a tiny human-being [she wanted so to live] in the palms of her hands.

I  dare any real woman [or any man] to read Baby Justice's story and defend legalized abortion.
