America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.

    “Today a young man on acid realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration, that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, there is no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we are the imagination of ourselves.

    My grandmother and my mother knew the ship was sunk in the battle of the Solomon Islands (South Pacific).
    They had no idea if he had survived the sinking. It wasn't until some time later that they were at a movie theater and during the War Time Movie News that a camera did a pan shot of sailors on a rescue ship that they had saw him. That is how they found he he survived.

    Well done Grandpa!!

    I can imagine their feel when they had saw he was rescued.

    So your grandpa has been part of the legendary Pacific war ?
    What he told you about ?

    Being politically correct is a self-inflicted slavery.

    This all came down from my GM and Mom. He passed when I was very young. Fortunately they documented his experiences during WWII as did he with pics and what not.
