At the beginning of 1943, he was in severe pain. In the early morning of 1/3, he told the old servant to lift him up to sit up, look out at the East Sea, and close his eyes, peacefully leaving at the age of 80 with no relatives nearby. He left a letter, told to bury him in Nha Trang to be close to the people he loved. The whole village of Dunes that day and days later no one went to the beach. They cried like rain at the death of the benefactor who spent their whole life: ′′ Teacher of the year passed away, from now on, who will help us?". The house presented the altar with his picture in the most solemn place ..Today, every 1/3th of every year, the people of the region come to visit his grave. You are Alexandre Yersin. He was a student of Luis Pasteur who found the vaccine. When he thought he was about to get the next Nobel Prize in Medicine in Bach Ma, he decided to leave. He aboard the ship, became a doctor on the ship, and then loved every time the ship was in Nha Trang. He chose this place as his local residence, healing and spending his holidays on expedition. On 21-3-1893, he found the Lang Biang plateau. In other words, he is the ′′ father ′′ of Da Lat. In 1894, he found out rats are the cause of the plague. He opened the Pasteur Institute in Nha Trang to make vaccine to help Vietnamese fight this disease. He lives simply in a small wooden house, speaks Vietnamese well, anyone who is poor and sick comes to cure it for free. He made simple tools to forecast the weather. When there was going to be a big storm, he hung a very bright light in a high pole right on the roof of the journalist who told the people of Cun but didn't go, He spent his own money to hire plumbing scissors to put water machines in many places for civil use. He spent a large bookcase for the kids to read. He divided the sweets, taught them astronomy and meteorological forecasts. In 1902, he was appointed as the first Principal of the University in Hanoi. The last 25 years of his life, he focuses on studying the migration of temperate plants. Thanks to him, I have more salads, cabbage, carrots, salads, cauliflower... And especially have more coffee and rubber for Vietnam in the past.
I find myself sitting on the bank of a lake, not far from where I grew up. Being in an extremely rural and poor area of Arkansas, we hang on to things quite a bit longer than most, both literally and figuratively.
In the 1960s, there was a thriving vacation destination in my home county, known as the ‘Wildlife Club.’ My great aunt, as well as many other locals, worked at this (what I would consider) forerunner of the Buffalo National Riveresque tourist attraction. People came here to fish the man-made lakes, hunt hogs (imported from elsewhere to tend to the guests), and just relax in the pristine Ozarks atmosphere. They even built a landing strip for those ‘high rollers’ who would fly their personal planes in to get some relaxation and rest here in the hills. The lakes were a huge draw, and were prominently featured on the advertisements and post cards from the ‘Club.’

The Diary of Mrs. Judith Brockenbrough McGuire, 1862-1863 includes the following entry which notes the “dangerously wounded” condition of her nephew, identified only as “Major B.” She devoted herself to “B’s” care until his parents arrived, living on little sleep with pitchers of water, bowls and baskets readied for more wounded coming on the trains. Mrs. McGuire wrote of herself and other ladies caring for the wounded: “We cannot yield to private feelings now; they may surge up and rush through our hearts until they almost burst them, but they must not overwhelm us. We must do our duty to our country, and it can’t be done by nursing our own sorrows.”

The Adults in the Room will ignore this kind of schlop coming from the MSM. They tried something similar in Canada. Canada spent almost a Billion dollars and never completed the registration process. Compliance was spotty even with horrific punishments for non-compliance. Trying this here, even getting a $200/gun tax to offset the expense, would be costly beyond imagination. If they got 40% compliance they would be doing well and they'd only get that level cooperation if they offered registration for free. Just imagine the paperwork involved in doing backround checks of half the gun owners in the USA. The NFA requires those checks be done in every state. 80 million gun owners times 50 states is 4,000,000,000 backround checks. It would take many years, perhaps a decade, to get the job done. That's even if the states submitted to doing those checks and there is no reason to think they wouldn't object to the man hours required to comply with this federal mandate. It didn't work in Canada, New Zealand or Australia, and it won't work here. It's been tried in Connecticut and New York. It was a total failure in both states. The fun part of this is that even if it is somehow pushed into law, it will be ignored by both citizens and much of law enforcement. How many folks went to prison for flash hiders on post ban guns during the assault weapons ban? No, this is just another benchmark showing how clueless people are in the beltway. Proves beyond a shadow of a doubt they can't do math.
If Hawley and Cruz Are Cancelled, Conservatism Is Next: Any conservative worth his salt should defend senators against baseless and dictatorial attacks.
The ruling class has now made it perfectly clear that this kind of behavior will not be tolerated. Questioning elite consensus threatens their power. It runs the risk of exposing their reasoning as flawed, or corrupt, or empty, all of which it often is.
The usual suspects have, once again, cobbled together a show trial for Donald Trump in hopes of finally ousting him as the main competitor to their self-proclaimed monopoly on authority and public opinion. Nothing new, of course: this has been the aim of the ruling class, left and right, for the past few years. But now that Trump’s term has drawn to a close, his enemies have begun to focus their fire more keenly on the (alarmingly few) senators who seem poised to lead the conservative populist movement in the future. Chief among their targets are Senators Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) and Ted Cruz (R-Texas), whom they now proclaim “guilty” for objecting to the counting of electoral votes from certain states.

If Justice Roberts is not presiding over this, then it is not impeachment. This charade will be nothing more than bitter partisanship and political theater.
Sometimes in Washington, the powers that be will embark on a little bit of political theater. You can always spot it, though, if you look closely enough at what's real and what's not.
In the last days of the presidency of Donald Trump, the Democrats and a handful of Never Trumpers banded together to insist he be impeached, again.
The first impeachment of Donald Trump in 2019 was a witch hunt filled with fabricated charges, unsupported evidence and partisan rancor disguised as legal concern.
I worked against this impeachment, but I will grant it one thing — while wrongheaded, the Democrats had every right to do it and at least pursued it as dictated and foreseen by the Constitution.

Biden Proposes $200 Gun Tax and Firearm Buyback Program Along with 13 page Form that Asks for Fingerprints and Photograph
Your fingerprints and a photograph of yourself will be required on the form.
This will be a difficult program to enact for the Biden regime. In 2020 a record number of Americans bought guns. According to the National Shooting Sports Foundation 8.4 million people bought a gun for the first time in 2020.

"You’re forgetting who you are as a journalist if you think there's only one side."
George Stephanopoulos, the former press secretary for Bill Clinton turned ABC host, came out of the chute fast when he sat down with Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul on Sunday’s “This Week” political talk show.
“Senator Paul, let me begin with a threshold question for you. This election was not stolen, do you accept that fact?”
