40th POTUS, Ronald Reagan (1981 – 1988)
Mr. Reagan truly desired or aspired to be the president. He spent years trying to accomplish this objective. Finally. One day. It happened. He got himself elected. He was inaugurated on the very same day I started working for the United States Customs Service, now known as ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement).
He wasn't too keen on funding health, education and welfare or social programs like that. Just because Jesus said “The poor ye have always with you”, that doesn't mean those in poverty should be a priority budget item.
He wanted to privatize functions like the postal service.
He was really enthusiastic about space and defense programs. But when the Iran Contra Affair occurred, he told the American people he didn't know a thing about it. He has since departed this life but - if speaking honestly - I was never fully convinced he didn't know. Too late now to split hairs over it.
All of America is glad - whether we agree with his decisions or not - that he survived an attempt on his life. The shooter wasn't even politically motivated. The idiot guy was just trying to impress a girl. A girl he didn't even know! God spared Mr. Reagan's life. Amen!
That's my recall/wrap-up of MY opinions and views of Reaganomics and his policies.

35th POTUS, John F. Kennedy (1961 – 1963) - What do I recall?
The grown folks around me sure thought he was a good POTUS. Didn't know much but saw no reason to disagree with them. Have always believed that this man would have been one of the best presidents. But we will never know as he was cut down by an assassin's bullet or bullets. To this day, the identity of his murderer or murderers have never been confirmed. But the day he was shot is etched in my memory forever. People – the adults, that is, in my neighborhood were showing a range of emotions: sorrow, shock, despair, anger, dread. My older sister made a scrapbook of newspaper clippings – everything she could find about JFK. Sadly, don't know what happened to it. Wish I had kept it. Its historical value would have been priceless.
Kennedy's assassination completely changed my understanding of this thing called “politics” in America, and in the world. Politics is dangerous! Not only dangerous but confusing. To want to get rid of a bad leader – like a ruthless dictator or a really cruel monarch - that's understandable. Not saying that's the right thing to do. But to kill a good leader? That is so clearly and obviously wrong. WHY?? Does this mean the good really do die young?? (O.o)

But let's just say - for purposes of my posts - the ideal democracy does exist and the real power does rest with the GAP (general American public) and the people do elect their leaders in America. Here's how it works. Leaders are elected. They get to serve for no more than two terms, 4 years each, 8 years top. Then they leave and they can't come back! Most citizens, like me, are OK with this arrangement. Additionally, most citizens, like me, will probably live through about 8 to 10 presidents in their lifetime.
This is my intro to a series of posts that will be published where I take a look back at the presidential DOTS on my timeline. Won't be drawing from what is written about these fearless leaders in the history books. Just going to try to see what can be drawn from my memory.
* * *
Beginning with the 34th POTUS, Dwight D. Eisenhower, who served from 1953 to 1961. You could say my DOT is on his timeline since, my birth occurred during his time of service, close to the end of the year 1955.
Only thing in my memory about this administration was that his daughter got married. No. That's not a political act. It's not politics at all. But &hellip; back in my time, children were taught not to speak when grown folks were talking and only thing I can recall grown folks talking about was the fact that his daughter was getting married.
Guess that's an indicator that times during 1953 to 1961 weren't too too bad. (???)
It's a guess from a person who was between the ages of: Newborn to 6 years. (O.o)
That's it! Not much extracted. Next post? Next POTUS DOT? John F. Kennedy

- Typing accents ? That's impossible!!
Laura Lawless says: “It's just as important to include accents when writing in French as it is to spell words correctly.”
10 August 2016
The words of Lawrence, instantly called to my mind a contrast between words often uttered by Jesus Christ:
“It is written.”

Being illiterate is not a social matter these days. Right? At least, not in the USA. That may be a problem for undeveloped countries. Right?
One would think that in a country like America, literacy would not be an issue. Think again.

Current efforts to address the problem of illiteracy?
This post was inspired by a friend who published a post in another blogging community, Literacy Base, where I am an active member.

- Native Americans ate buffalo for food. But the white man killed the animals for sport, thus depleting the food supply for the Indians.
- When crowds go insane and rush into a stadium or a Walmart, they are referred to as a “herd of stampeding buffaloes”.
- There is an imaginary “purple buffalo” which is an integral part of the story line for The Neverending Story. Great family entertainment. I prefer the movies, but there is also an animated TV series.
FYI. “They are well known for their high level of intelligence and intuition Apparently when a person tries to play dead, the buffalo will urinate into the canal of their ear because it causes intense itching, forcing them to snap out of it and give themselves up!”

It was reported in 2009 that Chinese archaeologists uncovered an 1800-year-old tomb in Xigaoxue , which they believed to be the genuine tomb of a Chinese general Cao Cao . Hundreds of relics were recovered, but some experts were not convinced the bones belonged to the military leader and wanted DNA tests done. Evidently, they had the bones of the general's son which had been discovered in 1951.
The treasures of the Tombs of Southern Song Dynasty emperors were found but they had already been robbed. Perhaps there might still be some hidden tombs that the grave robbers could not locate or access.
Curious seekers wanting to find treasures of ancient China often search for undiscovered tombs, but based on some interesting information uncovered doing research to write another article, it appears that searching for ships lost at sea or shipwrecks, might be just as profitable.
