While growing up on the beautiful shores of Lake Erie in Cleveland, one of our favorite autumn activities was going to old Municipal stadium to see the Cleveland Browns.  Those were the days when the Browns were still an NFL level football team.  There was Brian Sipe and Bernie Kosar who consistently led the Browns into the playoffs with thrilling last minute victories.  I was a little guy when the first Monday Night Football game was televised in Cleveland on September 21st 1970.  At the time it was a quite cool to witness the Browns defeat of Broadway Joe Namath and the New York Jets, 31-21 in front of 80,000 rabid fans including myself.

While growing up on the shores of Lake Erie in Cleveland, one of our favorite autumn pastimes was going to old Municipal Stadium to watch the Cleveland Browns, when they actually won football games.  I’ll never forget witnessing the Cardiac Kids pulling out many last minute victories, just after many of us would think it was all over.  In fact, the first Monday Night Football game was televised from Cleveland 42 years ago on September 21, 1970.  At the time, for a young guy, it was a thrill of a lifetime to witness the Browns defeat of Joe Namath and the New York Jets 31-21 in front of 80,000 rabid fans including myself.  My school grades were very good, so I was allowed a rare evening outing on a school night.

I recently went against my vow to not attend a Hollywood movie because of the unrelenting bias against everything good and decent exhibited by most those who are involved in the movie industry. But being a lover of history, especially when it involves stories of ordinary people that accomplish extraordinary goals in spite what appears to be impossible odds to overcome.

The curiosity bug got the best of me. So as the old saying goes, never say never. So I gave in and agreed to go see the movie" Hidden Figures" along with my wife who had been enthusiastically looking forward to viewing the feature film. I must admit that my interest in the movie was aroused over the true story nature content.

For decades, the Little Sisters Of The Poor have been doing the honorable work of taking care of the elderly poor in America. Recently the Obama administration once again exhibited the willingness to persecute groups in the name of contraceptives. This time it was the Little Sisters of the Poor in the bigoted crosshairs of the Obama regime that tried to force them to violate their Catholic faith. Not once, but twice did Obama and company go after the helpful Catholic organization to try and force them to provide contraceptives for their employees.


The Little Sisters of the Poor have been petitioning the republic’s highest court to ensure they do not have to comply with Obamacare draconian abortion mandate. The unconstitutional mandate compels religious groups to pay for the birth control and drugs that may cause the killing of unborn babies. Without relief from such madness, the Little Sisters of the Poor and other worthy groups that hope to overcome such brutal government edicts would face massive fines.

The Smithsonian Institute is a perfect example of the real face of racism in America. I have said for decades that when it comes to racism, one not need to look any further than the Democrat Party. Also, there are numerous progressive groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center where members, just like those in the Democrat party pretend to love black people. In reality the feelings of Democrats and others like Southern Poverty Law Center members are fully exhibited in the horrendous policies they continue to either foist upon or promote for black Americans. The Black American community has been decimated by the effort of racist white progressives from Margaret Sanger to Lyndon Johnson to con blacks into accepting a lifestyle that is destructive through welfare and deadly via abortion.

When I was a little boy growing up in Cleveland my Dad would often tell me about the great people of America. Yes, he taught me about the obvious luminaries such as Dr. Benjamin Rush or Crispas Attucks. But he often talked about the unsung heroes who are just as important to society as any historical figure. Dad let me know that amongst the ranks of “We the People” resides the true backbone of our republic.

Needless to say, as we approach yet another time of Christmas I am more prone to take the time to fondly remember great individuals I’ve come to know. Many have been great friends and others just fantastic people met along the blessed path of life I have traveled. So often we may take for granted those we have known for a long time or have been friends with for years. Sometimes we can be guilty of overlooking or not paying to the crowning achievements of those we are familiar with.
