I thought this Inspirational Quote about youth was worth sharing!
“The young do not know enough to
be prudent, and therefore they attempt
the impossible — and achieve it,
generation after generation.”
- Pearl S. Buck
I’m worried about America!
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid,
“17 angry old white men”
buying the country.
“Perhaps Republicans want to shield a handful of billionaires willing to contribute nine figures to sway a close presidential election. … If this flood of outside money continues, the day after the election 17 angry old white men will wake up and realize they just bought the country. That’s a sad commentary.
“About 60 percent, or more, of these outside dollars are coming from these 17 people…”
“Government for the rich by the rich”
It was just over 100 years ago, when Helen Keller said:
“The few own the many because they possess the means of livelihood of all … The country is governed for the richest, for the corporations, the bankers, the land speculators, and for the exploiters of labor. The majority of mankind are working people. So long as their fair demands – the ownership and control of their livelihoods – are set at naught, we can have neither men’s rights nor women’s rights. The majority of mankind is ground down by industrial oppression in order that the small remnant may live in ease.”
We should learn from history.
We used too!
Unfortunately, today we learn what the rich want us to learn!

NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament
The Big Dance
March Madness 2013 begins on
Tuesday, March 19
and ends on
Monday, April 8
Everyone is rooting for the Florida Gulf Coast Eagles in this year’s March Madness NCAA Basketball Tournament. They defeated Georgetown in their first-ever NCAA tournament game and then went on to destry San Diego State. They are the first-ever No. 15 seed to win two games in the tournament and advance to the Sweet 16 Round.
So far, the Florida Gulf Coast Eagles
are certainly this year’s Cinderella Story
To me the Florida Gulf Coast Eagles are best described by this quote:
“The secret is to have eight great players and four others who will cheer like crazy.” ~ Jerry Tarkanian
It also helps to have a few players like Sherwood Brown and Brett Comer playing like super stars!
Can the FGCE continue their magic Cinderella Run?
Next Game for the Florida Gulf Coast Eagles will be on Friday against Florida Gators ~ should be a great game!
|Fri, Mar 29||@||Florida||9:57 PM (ET)|
The best part for me about the Florida Eagles is that they are feeling no pressure. That means they are having a really, really good time.
Love their celebratory chicken dances on the sidelines?

2013 March Madness Predictions Free
Here are some loose and general as well as specific 2013 March Madness picks.
- Huskies - There is a good chance the Huskies are going to fight to be able to be in the basketball tournament, but many are predicting they are not going to be successful with their appeals, meaning they will NOT take part in 2013 March Madness.
- UCLA - There are quick a few predictions that UCLA will make it back to the 2013 NCAA tournament after not making it for the 2011-2012 season. This remains to be seen, of course, but if you know the team you know it is possible.
- Missouri - They had a great 2011-2012 season, so there are many that are predicting they make it all the way to March Madness in 2013. This may or may not be the case, but they have managed to put together quite a good team.
- Wisconsin - Many are predicting that Wisconsin will remain strong in 2012-2013 and will make it all the way to March Madness 2013 – if not win it completely or at least making it into the Final Four match-up.
- Texas - The Longhorns have a good fighting chance of making the Big 12 or maybe even the Final Four. If all goes to plan, this young but talented team may take it all the way and win March Madness 2013.
- Texas A&M - Additionally, Texas A&M has a very good chance of making it into the 2013 NCAA tournament. While they perhaps disappointed many people in the 2011-2012 season, they are definitely a team to watch in 2013.
In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, you may want to choose
The Fighting Irish.
But don’t count on winning the pot of gold with this pick!
Whatever you do, don’t let Harold Camping help you
with your predictions for March Madness.
He has enough of his own madness to deal with.

Easter and March Madness Predictions
Three friends, who were fanatical basketball fans, died together in a car wreck.
They found themselves standing in front of the pearly gates with St. Peter.
He told them that before they could enter heaven, they had to tell him what Easter was about.
The first fan said, “Easter is a big holiday where we give thanks, have a big feast and eat turkey.”
“Nooooo,” said St. Peter. “You don’t get in.”
The second fan said, “Easter is the holiday that we celebrate Jesus’ being born of the virgin and give gifts to each other.”
“Nooooo,” said St. Peter. “You don’t get in, either.”
The third fan said, “Well, I know what Easter is all about. Easter is a Christian holiday which coincides with the Jewish Passover. After Jesus celebrated Passover with His disciples, He was betrayed by Judas and turned over to the Romans. They crucified Him on a cross. After He died, they buried him in a tomb and put a huge boulder in front of it.”
“Very good!” said St. Peter.
The fan continued. “Now, every year, the Kentucky fans roll the stone away and Jesus comes out. If He sees his shadow, we have 6 more weeks of basketball.

Mark Twain gets birthday tribute from Google
Tom Sawyer graces search engine on the
author’s 176th birthday
It’s the classic scene of boyhood one-upmanship, when Tom Sawyer tricks his friends into whitewashing a fence for him.
Mark Twain, born Samuel Clemens in 1835, published The Adventures of Tom Sawyer in 1876 and its sequel The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn in 1884. Ernest Hemingway said in the 1930s that “all modern American literature comes from one book by Mark Twain called Huckleberry Finn”, and the novels are still hugely popular today.
Twain died in 1910 and remains one of America’s best-loved authors. His autobiography was finally released last year: Twain had specified that it remain unpublished until a century after his death, so that he might feel free to speak his “whole frank mind” as he would be “dead, and unaware, and indifferent”.
In 1909, Twain is quoted as saying:
I came in with Halley’s Comet in 1835. It is coming again next year, and I expect to go out with it. It will be the greatest disappointment of my life if I don’t go out with Halley’s Comet. The Almighty has said, no doubt: ‘Now here are these two unaccountable freaks; they came in together, they must go out together.’
Mark Twain on Religion:
There is one notable thing about our Christianity: bad, bloody, merciless, money-grabbing, and predatory. The invention of hell measured by our Christianity of today, bad as it is, hypocritical as it is, empty and hollow as it is, neither the deity nor his son is a Christian, nor qualified for that moderately high place. Ours is a terrible religion. The fleets of the world could swim in spacious comfort in the innocent blood it has spilled.
Mark Twain is known for his great quotations, too.
Read through some of his quotes below and you’ll soon understand the wit and wisdom that he possessed, and why his quotations are so famous. Many of Mark Twain’s quotes could apply to present day GOP Candidates!
Mark Twain’s Famous Quotes:
Total abstinence is so excellent a thing that it cannot be carried to too great an extent. In my passion for it I even carry it so far as to totally abstain from total abstinence itself.
Life would be infinitely happier if we could only be born at the age of eighty and gradually approach eighteen.
The average American may not know who his grandfather was. But the American was, however, one degree better off than the average Frenchman who, as a rule, was in considerable doubt as to who his father was.
Concerning the difference between man and the jackass: some observers hold that there isn’t any. But this wrongs the jackass.
There has been only one Christian. They caught him and crucified him–early.
A banker is a fellow who lends you his umbrella when the sun is shining, but wants it back the minute it begins to rain.
A man cannot be comfortable without his own approval.
A man is never more truthful than when he acknowledges himself a liar.
There are many humorous things in the world; among them, the white man’s notion that he less savage than the other savages.
Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence in society.
The gentle reader will never, never know what a consummate ass he can become until he goes abroad. I speak now, of course, in the supposition that the gentle reader has not been abroad, and therefore is not already a consummate ass.
The report of my illness grew out of his (James Clemens) illness. The report of my death was an exaggeration.

I am quite sure now that often, very often, in matters concerning religion and politics a man’s reasoning powers are not above the monkey’s.
I would rather have my ignorance than another man’s knowledge, because I have so much more of it.
person with a new idea is a crank until the idea succeeds.
A round man cannot be expected to fit in a square hole right away. He must have time to modify his shape.
Action speaks louder than words but not nearly as often.
Against the assault of laughter nothing can stand.
Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.
All generalizations are false, including this one.
In the first place God made idiots. This was for practice. Then He made school boards.
Let us endeavor so to live that when we come to die even the undertaker will be sorry.
Patriot: the person who can holler the loudest without knowing what he is hollering about.
To be good is noble; but to show others how to be good is nobler and no trouble.
It is by the goodness of God that in our country we have those three unspeakably precious things: freedom of speech, freedom of conscience, and the prudence never to practice either.
All you need is ignorance and confidence and the success is sure.
Always do right. This will gratify some people and astonish the rest.
Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured.
Any emotion, if it is sincere, is involuntary.

As an example to others, and not that I care for moderation myself, it has always been my rule never to smoke when asleep, and never to refrain from smoking when awake.

Be careless in your dress if you will, but keep a tidy soul.
