Why Trump Followers are So Devoted to Their Leader: He is Not Toasted

March 18, 2019  By Jack Jodell (in association with gifted writer BURR DEMING  – the creator of, and primary author over at the brilliant blogsite FAIR AND UNBALANCED.COM – see my blogroll at the lower right side of this page).    

COUNTDOWN: We will not see clean, honest government from the White House return until the criminal Trump Family Crime Syndicate has left the Oval Office – in another 662 more days…

“Hypocrisy is a tribute vice pays to virtue.”
– Francois de La Rochefoucauld –

Happy Monday, everyone! Many are incredulous that president Trump can lie repeatedly and seemingly get away with it. Trump has evidently mastered the big lie in a way we have not seen since Josef Goebbels did in World War II or the Kremlin did daily in the old Soviet Union. Recent examples of practioners using the lie, as shown here in Burr Demong’s masterful piece, include Republican strategists Frank Luntz and the late Lee Atwater, who, like Trump, used one euphemism after another euphemism to avoid telling the real truth. The problem for truth-seekers is that there is little, if any, of  value to be learned from such deliberate liars…

Burr states, The most devoted Trump support comes from those impatient with the traditional code words and dog whistles offered by Republicans for the last half century.

A fictional advertising executive explains what they want instead.”

A SOLID REASON TO VOTE DEMOCRATIC IN THE 2020 ELECTION!

March 14, 2019  By Jack Jodell, American Dissident, N.M.P.  

COUNTDOWN: The end of the abominable Trump Family Crime Syndicate’s misadministration is slowly drawing to a close, and we now only have to wait 665 more days until it will thankfully be finally over!

To say that our current administration is the most corrupt in all of our history  is as obvious and truthful to the overwhelming majority of people as is the statement that the sun is warm – it is undeniable to nearly all, except for the blindly fearful and overly-partisan few who naively believe that our self-absorbed president actually is concerned about their well-being.  With the far-too-easy sentence of convicted tax cheat and former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort  by arch-conservative federal judge T. S. Ellis last week, it has become apparent that as many CON-servative Republicans as possible MUST be ousted from Congress, and President Trump as well, in the next election!  We can only hope that Manafort’s next sentencing date will prove to be more just, and that his sentence will grow much longer!    

The measly 47 month sentence given  by Judge Ellis is a mockery of justice – period. It reinforces the fact that there is a separate, more lenient, form of justice for the wealthy and a more stringent one for those who are poor, workers, or are minorities. “Arch-conservative” is a term for Ellis that is not being bandied about care-lessly by this blogger alone: none other than the conservative Forbes magazine has referred to this most un-just judge as such.  

Republicans have long decried the supposed evils of  what they term as “activist” (LIBERAL) judges,  who have sided against monied, conservative interests in favor of the poor, or minorities, or everyday workers who are not business-owners or professionals. For many decades, they have insisted on the appointment of judges at all levels who fit their more conservative, “strict constructionist” pattern of legal interpretation. Since the presidency of the criminal Richard Nixon, they have made certain to appoint only those who profess to be “conservatives” as judges – and the horrible consequences of this pattern emerged with the undeniably light sentence given Paul Manafort.

The disgusting Republican penchant for exaggeration and hyperbole has reached a new detestable height since Trump has entered the scene.  Those who oppose his ridiculous call for erecting a costly and unneeded border wall  at our southern border to stop the flow of immigrants into our country are irresponsibly labeled as “soft on border security” and other false terms. We must stop the attempt by Republicans to subvert our judicial system by transforming it into a paranoid bastion of ultra-conservatism – and the best and only way to do this is to prevent them from being in the position to appoint any more judges. It is IMPERATIVE for us to do all we can to defeat this underhanded GOP effort to cast our courts in their own image and biased, narrow-minded and thoroughly INCORRECT likeness!


The ONLY way to do this is to keep them out of power in government, and that means voting Democratic in the 2020 elections – for President, Congress, and in state governorships and state legislatures! To permit Republicans to present the facade that they are working for the benefit of most Americans (when they are truly only attempting to foster the values of the wealthy) is criminal, and they must be held accountable for perpetrating this deceitful charade!

Vladimir Putin’s Magic Eyes

March 11, 2019  By Jack Jodell, American Dissident, N.M.P. (in association with the gifted writer BURR DEMING, creator of the fabulous blog site FAIR AND UNBALANCED.COM, and who still posts there – see my Blogroll in the lower right hand column of this page).

COUNTDOWN: This God-forsaken dalliance with the Trump Crime Syndicate’s  ineptitude and mediocrity will gratefully come to a close in just 668 more days…

Happy Monday, everybody! Many of us have seen the fascination Donald Trump has shown with antidemocratic tyrants and dictators. We have also seen Trump’s love of having his ass kissed by anyone who will stoop so low. His susceptibility to this has been evidenced numerous times, from the naive trust and admiration he has placed in the sly and murderous Vladimir Putin to his wacko “falling in love” with North Korea’s brutal strongman Kim Jong Un. Trump’s naivete and willful, selective ignorance of world history and foreign affairs is more than appalling – it is downright dangerous! Yet, his wretched CON-servative Republican Party chooses to meekly go along with him. In today’s very relevant piece, podcaster magnifique Burr Deming  illustrates this current GOP weakness.

Burr tells us, “In the last quarter century, the Republican approach to America’s adversaries has gone from ‘Trust But Verify’ to ‘Trust With No Limit.'”

THE OLD AND PAMPERED vs. THE NEW: A CONTRAST IN STYLES AND VALUES!

March 7, 2019  By Jack Jodell, American Dissident, N.M.P.  

COUNTDOWN: Determination, everyone – we WILL outlast this trashy  presidency! There are now just 672 days remaining in the Trump Crime Syndicate’s  misadministration…

Good day, everybody. The election of a record number of progressive-minded women, minorities, and first-time office seekers in last fall’s congressional races  has fueled an incredible number of similar aspirants for the 2020 elections – including a sizable amount of women Democratic presidential contenders! In this blogger’s viewpoint, it is a VERY healthy sign that voters will reject Donald Trump and even more of his backward-thinking Republican supporters than they did in 2018.

In today’s post, I have decided to concentrate on the marked contrasts between the old, pampered, and comfortable – and the new, forward-thinking, and struggling contenders whom I believe represent a bright future for our nation.  

Let us begin with the old – Donald Trump and his CON-servative staff and allies. The new House Judiciary, Intelligence, and Ways and Means Committees are about to begin some much-needed investigations of the president’s business practices and abuses of power. Gone will be the old Trump method of doing whatever he damn well pleases whenever and however, and that is GOOD! His longtime lawyer Michael Cohen will soon begin to serve a 3 year prison term and testified against his former client before beginning his sentence. His testimony was damaging to Trump, as he produced a copy of one of the reimbbursement checks, signed by Trump himself, which had been sent to him to pay him back for the hush money payments Cohen had made to one of Trump’s extramarital sexual partners. He also revealed how Trump deliberately ignored advice from his then chief of staff and attorneys, among others, and had demanded that his son -in-law, the wimpy, pampered, and completely inexperienced Jared Kushner, be given clearance for top secret intelligence briefings. This was done so that Kushner could be sent overseas to craft a Mideast peace agreement (which still has yet to happen)  – talk about the blind and incompetent  leading the blind! In reality, however, Kushner has been trying to lay the groundwork for a future fortune he hopes to make for himself as well as for his father-in-law.

Trump had previously made both Kushner and his wife, Trump’s daughter Ivanka, members of his top staff – NONE of whom had any experience whatsoever in government. Her only apparent qualification was that she is his daughter and had previously displayed her marketing and exploitative “abilities” by having traveled to China to purchase some clothing made by lowly-paid Chinese textile workers to sell to American consumers at an enormous profit. She, just like her father and husband, had each been given enormous wealth by their respective daddies, and had used it to line their own pockets. Namby-pamby husband Jared had met early-on with the Saudi royal family to foster future business with that oppressive kingdom. These are typical moves for each of them, as they are all spoiled rotten and have deliberately chosen to ignore or exploit those below them on the economic scale.

(I heard a lot of Trump’s 122 minute way too long speech at this year’s CPAC [Crazy People At Conference] gathering this past weekend. Naturally, he was grandstanding as he always does, strutting around like a proud peacock, and, of course, he had nothing new to offer except more nausea for us sane and regular persons. Let’s face it: Trump is a very, very, very, VERY BAD MAN!)

These wealthy Trumps have a disgusting number of loyal supporters (many of whom were at CPAC), and apologists in Congress, notably Republicans Mark Meadows from NC and Jim Jordan of CA in the House, both of whom defend anything the Trump clan says or does with a vengeance. They will reliably attack any Democratic politician or position in their mean-spiritrd midst…

Over in the Senate, we find the most contemptible consti-pated turtle known as Senate Majority Leader Mitch Mc Connell. This Trump puppet is so spineless and fearful of the president that Trump can usually always count on him to do his bidding. These creeps are all bought-off and represent the old, comfortable face of the wretched Republican Party, and let us hope they will ALL be replaced in our next general election with newer, progressive-leaning leaders who will govern with the benefit of the entire country, rather than just the wealthy and privileged in mind!

Our former and tragically assassinated president, Democrat  John F. Kennedy,  had also been raised in tremendous wealth – yet he had the common sense, vision, and fairness to realize that government had the duty and moral responsibility to aid workers, the disadvantaged, and the poor and needy, so he embarked on a strongly pro-labor policy. His successor, Lyndon Johnson, furthered his aim by implementing a whole new series of federal anti-poverty programs which were called the Great Society. After that, the scandalous Republican Richard Nixon was successful in nearly eliminating or drastically changing most of them. UNLIKE what we are cursed withnow, none of these former presidents nor any of their closest staff members (with the glaring exception of Nixon’s corrupt VP Spiro Agnew) ever  attempted to use their office to further enrich themselves at taxpayer expense…

Now, we are very lucky in that we have newer strong voices on the horizon which have arisen to offer us great hope. One of these is freshman representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, whose rise I chronicled in my July 4, 2018 post. Predictably, the progressive Ms. Cortez has immediately become a lightning rod for criticism from the far-right, uncaring CON-servative Republicans, who are disparaging her with terms like “socialist” and are using her as bait to raise funds for Republican hopefuls. Yet another far-right target has been Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who says if she is elected President she will immediately implement a long-deserved tax INCREASE on the tremendously wealthy and their money-laden corporations. I find little to argue with her on that account, as years of tax cuts by Republicans (ESPECIALLY those by Donald Trump and George W. Bush) have saddled our country with a HUGE amount of unneeded debt and have prevented us from being able to expand sore;ly-needed increases in monthly benefits for Social Security recipients as well as the underprivileged and needy. Sen. Warren came fromn modest, lower middle class roots, so she is well aware that these Republican tax decreases for the rich are as stupid and wasteful as would be filling an altready full swimming pool with even more water, and all they accomplish is making the already wealthy even richer! Are we, as a nation, that foolish and unjust? I don’t think so – and we can prove it by throwing Trump and his CON-servative Republican followers OUT OF OFFICE in 2020! Let us continue the fight to replace these Republicans with forward-thinking and fairer-minded  Democrats in what I hope will be a pivotal, binding election whose conse-quences will be felt for many decades to come! Let’s teach these greedy, self-centered, and enabling fools a longterm lesson they will NEVER forget!!!!!!!!

Electoral College: The Original Intent Might Not Be What You Think

March 4, 2019  By Jack Jodell, American Dissident, N.M.P. (in association with the gifted writer BURR DEMING, creator of the fabulous blog site FAIR AND UNBALANCED.COM, and who still posts there – see my Blogroll in the lower right hand column of this page).

COUNTDOWN: While at times it may seem endless, this pitiful excuse for a presidential administration of the Trump Crime Syndicate will thankfully come to an end in another 675 days…

Happy first Monday of March to all of you! The ONLY reason we have been saddled with the horribly corrupt and criminal presidency of Donald Trump is that he was able to eke out a slim majority of votes in several key states, which gave him an electoral college victory (even though Hillary Clinton defeated him handily, by more than 3 MILLION votes in the popular vote). That in itself is grounds in the minds of many to do away with the Electoral College altogether!

In today’s excellent submission, our master podcaster BURR DEMING  brilliantly talks about the true intent Founding Father James Madison had envisioned for our form of government, and how many conservatives have misinterpreted that intent over time. 

Burr says: If you’re going to defend this terrible holdover, defend it for the monstrous reason some delegates demanded it and others acquiesced.

It is available, documented in the original words of the founders, as recorded by those who were there.”

TRUMP – IN ADJECTIVES AND DESCRIPTIVE PHRASES!

February 28, 2019  By Jack Jodell, American Dissident, N.M.P.  

COUNTDOWN: Try not to grimace too much as I remind you there are still perhaps 685 days to go in this Trump Crime Syndicate’s  misadministration…

Happy last day of the month, everybody! There are literally thousands of words in our language which would describe our current president. He seems to have such simple thought processes, yet his behavior and actions show him to be an extremely complex and conflicted individual. I tried to confine myself one day to put some descriptive words about him down on paper – but for every word or descriptive phrase I came up with, MANY others kept popping into my mind.  In fact, I came up with well over 300 adjectives and descriptive phrases!

Jessie Smollet Brings Back Morton Downey, Jr.

Feb. 25, 2019  By Jack Jodell, American Dissident, N.M.P. (in association with the gifted writer BURR DEMING, creator of the fabulous blog site FAIR AND UNBALANCED.COM, and who still posts there – see my Blogroll in the lower right hand column of this page).

COUNTDOWN: Hope springs eternal! Only 688 days are left until we will finally divest ourselves of this horribly inferior Trump misadministration…      

Happy start of another week! Before Rush Limbaugh came to national prominence, there was an equally offensive loudmouth whose show appeared on both radio and TV by the name of Morton Downey, Jr. In today’s post, our resident podcaster BURR DEMING recalls that phony blowhard and likens his story of a feigned physical attack into the tale of today’s phony, Jessie Smollet, who attempted to fake his own racial-hatred “beating” to in a bid to gain renewed popularity.

Burr states,“A famous actor files a false report of a brutal attack right wing by rignt wing fanatics.

Nobody can quite understand why.

Why would Morton Downey Jr., vicious enemy of liberals, do such a thing?”

AMERICA’S MANY “SOCIALIST” VALUES!

February 21, 2019  By Jack Jodell, American Dissident, N.M.P.  

COUNTDOWN: There remain 692 more days to go in this utterly awful and totally corrupt Trump misadministration…          

During his overly-long and meaningless State of the Disunion address a few weeks back, Donald Trump made a telling statement about how he and his CON-servative Republican Party may attempt to run his 2020 re-election campaign. Trump said “America will never be a socialist country!” That may be true – but only if one considers “socialist” to be the same as what we have previously seen implemented in the old Soviet Union, Cuba, North Korea, China, or other such dictatorships – and that would be certainly UNtrue for OUR democratic nation! Trump and his allies will undoubtedly try to portray his Democratic opponents as being far-left  and will claim that voting Democratic will result in higher taxes for everybody and the loss of freedom and liberty here at home. Republicans have been doing this for years – there is nothing original about it; W and DICK Cheney used it rather successfully in the first decade of this century. If today’s group  tries this, it will just be one more in an ever-growing list of Trump and CON-servative Republican LIES! 

The TRUTH of the matter is that the United States has already adopted many of the ideas which were once considered “socialist,” The 8 hour work day is now accepted as normal and desirable, but, when it was first proposed in 1901, was considered “socialist.” So too was Social Security, and the legalization of labor unions, which came into being way back in 1935, and Medicare and Medicaid, both of which were put into effect in the mid-1960s. ALL of these are now valued and accepted nationwide. In fact, numerous polls have consistently shown that a significant majority of us LIKE the “sociallistic” practices we employ at present, and are not at all willing to give them up.

Consider this: “socialism” means that the people, rather than powerful monied corporations, own and control the ways that goods or services are produced and used. Thus, it would seem that neighborhood, apartment, or condo associations practice socialism – and nobody squawks against those. The entire country has a public school system which sets standards for education and guarantees that everyone -rich, poor, or middle class – plus young as well as old – has equal access to learn science, mathematics, reading, writing, history, civics, language, foreign languages, philosophy, trades, art, music, or whatever else suits their individual fancy. Private, parochial schools allow for the teaching of specific religions and flourish alongside these public schools, and adopt all of the same standards as do their public school counterparts. This, too, is “socialism,” as some sort of democratically- elected group (usually, school boards) sets those important standards and follows up to see they are properly instilled.

The water we drink and the quality of air we breathe in our communities is regulated by our government to ensure it is pure and healthy. Sewage plants carry away our harmful waste and protect us from disease, and all of this is publicly-owned: yet one more form of common “socialism.” While overall our health care system is privately-owned and operated, a huge government-run health care group known as the Department of Veterans Affairs has been providing health care for our veterans for many years – and most veterans are damn glad to have it! That could also be considered “socialistic.”

Throughout numerous areas of our country, socialistic groups like the federally-operated U. S. Bureau of Reclamation provide a lot of the electricity and water used in desert meccas like Los Angeles, Denver, Salt Lake City, Reno, Las Vegas, and Tucson – among many others. We are protected by our government-run and funded military; all of our highways, roads, and bridges, plus our public parking ramps and almost all of our airports and public transit systems are government-run; as are our Secret Service, FBI, our beautiful National Park system; plus, on the local level, our police, fire, and other first responders (a group Trump has praised effusively many times).

In Appalachia, the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) has supplied power and agricultural opportunity to that once-depressed area since the New Deal days of the 1930s – and nobody denigrates it as being “socialistic.”

The Food and Drug Administration regulates drugs and inspects food to ensure what we are consuming is safe and uniform. While some claim that its regulations are a bit stringent, it has kept spoiled meat and worthless elixirs from reaching us, and public utilities commissions prevent energy producers from grossly overcharging us.

NOBODY in their right minds would ever dare denounce them as being “socialistic”!

For those who say they would never vote for any socialist, keep in mind that we have had socialists on our ballots many times throughout the years, and the leftward push they provided has greatly benefitted the nation! Eugene Debs, an avowed socialist, got an astounding 6% of the popular vote in the presidential election of 1912, and Frances Perkins, FDR’s Labor Secretary, made possible the implementation of Social Security during the Great Depression – something that saved millions of seniors from starvation in those horrible years where our privatized capitalistic system failed us miserably!

Last, and far from least, is our U.S. Postal System. It delivers to every single address in our entire country; something no privately-owned c0mpany like UPS or FedEx doesn’t even do! Years ago, I had left my eyeglasses behind in a relatively flat small country I was visiting. I contacted the spot where I had left them, and they put them in their mail system that very same day. It took 5 full days for me to get them back  at the new address I was at – which was less than 300 miles away! At home here, regular mail service to anywhere in the nation rarely takes more than 4 days. Hats off to our postal system – government owned and operated as it is! “Socialistic” or not – it is undoubtedly the BEST in the world!

These are but a few of many examples of publicly-owned, so-called “socialist” systems which function beautifully all the time in our country. They protect us from the excesses of capitalism (which are often many) and from greedy, self-centered profiteers like our president! The cold-hearted and uncaring Trump can piss and moan all he wants about “socialism”, but even he, too, has availed himself of the many socialist values our country has integrated into its network of programs, and they are serving us magnificently each day of the year!

So don’t let lying blowhards like Trump and his minions scare you into voting for tired old Republican  dinosaurs with their lies and deceit – NO “democratic socialist” will EVER try to imprison you in some kind of macabre American gulag!  All these greedy liars are trying  to do is protect the already wealthy profiteers who want to keep selling us short and ripping us off! 🙁

The Lies Professor Dunning Taught Northam, Clinton, and Me

February 18, 2019   By Jack Jodell, American Dissident, N.M.P. (in association with the gifted writer BURR DEMING, creator of the fabulous blog site FAIR AND UNBALANCED.COM, and who still posts there – see my Blogroll in the lower right hand column of this page).

COUNTDOWN: Brace yourselves, my friends – this madcap Trump misadministration will not end for  another 695 more days…

Greetings to everyone! Those of us who studied  civics, politics, and history beyond our elementary, middle school, and high school years learned how some of what we were taught in earlier grades was either incomplete and/or incorrect, and that as we delved into topics on a deeper level or managed to look into a broader range of sources, we actually began to see a new truth emerge; one which was more complete and accurate.  In today’s very insightful and thoughtful example, our master podcaster Burr Deming recalls the teachings of a prior errant professor and how they had a devastating influence on our race relations.                                              

Burr relates,  “We hope for our best judgment when it is necessary to judge the ignorant, the flawed, and those who have done wrong.

Not all ignorance is willful.

Not all evil is done by evil people.”

PLEASE DO THIS FOR THE AFFLICTED CHILDREN!

February 14, 2019  By Jack Jodell, American Dissident, N.M.P. 

COUNTDOWN: There are now 699 days remaining in the charlatan Donald Trump’s presidency…

“No child should die in the dawn of life.”
– Danny Thomas –

Happy Valentine’s Day, everybody! In celebration of the patron saint of love, I present a tale of one who embodied love in his life: radio, stage, movie, and TV star Danny Thomas. For many years, this entertainer was a hugely successful TV star with his Make Room for Daddy and The Danny Thomas Show TV programs. Prior to that, he had made movie appearances, and even before that, was active in radio, using the name Amos Jacobs. Yet Mr. Thomas was not always a successful Hollywood icon. He was actually born into a poor Lebanese Mennon-ite Catholic immigrant family, as one of  10 children born of those parents. He struggled for a time as a stand-up comic before making it in radio. His early career had many ups and downs, yet Mr. Thomas persevered without losing hope. During one psrticularly low point in the early mid-1950s, he went into a Catholic church and knelt down to pray. He made a vow to St. Jude Thaddeus, the patron saint of lost causes, saying “show me my way in life and I will make you a shrine.” He left that church and before long began to discuss his idea with the then-Archbishop (later Cardinal) of Chicago, Fr. Samuel Stritch. Stritch suggested that a children’s hospital for the needy might be a better tribute, snd Thomas listened. He initially wanted the hospital to be in Chicago, where he got his start in show business, but, since Chicago already had an established children’s hospital, the Archbishop suggested a city where there would be greater need. He offered Memphis, TN. as an example.

Invigorated with a newfound zeal and sense of purpose, Mr. Thomas began to furiously raise money to build and staff it. Thomas started up the American  Lebanese Syrian Associated Charities (ALSAC) whose sole purpose was to fund and maintain the hospital. He was relentless and eventually achieved success with both his vow and in his career. 

In 1962, St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital opened its doors to help children in need, through research and to provide medical care. Dr. Donald Pinkel, the hospital’s first director, started a “Total Therapy”  study series which proved that a good number of youngsters  stricken with ALL (Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia) could be permanently cured. This remarkable man had previously overcome a crippling bout with polio, in which he had to re-learn how to walk again, so he was no stranger to medical miracles. He visited the facility in 1961, while it was still under construction, and decided immediately to become involved with it.

After an initially cool reception, Memphis civic leaders and research scientists were drawn to this worthy project.  Early on, the decision was made to battle all childhood cancers rather than just leukemia. A large number of fundraising appeals were undertaken as well as numerous research studies, each of which helped to reverse the death toll childhood cancer had been taking. Whereas, before this hospital had been built, the death rate  from childhood cancer was at 80%, today it has been reduced to only 20% – an incredible achievement over the past 57 years! This institution has grown exponentially in scientific stature in that time, and has become internationally known for its many successes! With current daily operating costs of nearly $2.5 MILLION, the ALSAC charity has become the largest healthcare related charity in this country, and is making hope possible for so many families.

A diagnosis of cancer at any age is a frightful thing. Invariably, it proves to be horribly costly as well, considering the steep price of hospitalization, chemotherapy, surgery (if required), and convalesence time. Costs can be a crippling blow to young parents just starting out. The beauty of St. Jude’s is that, the families of children who are accepted there are given free lodging and meals while their child is staying there! The idea is for all concerned to focus on the trestment and hopefully the cure of the stricken child, without having to worry about financial matters. This is possible due to continual fundraising in support of the hospital, and it has proven time and again to be a real boon to the families involved!

Danny Thomas died in 1991, and is buried, as he wished, on the grounds of the facility. Before he passed, he stated, “St Jude was my greatest accomplishment in life.” Thousands of those who were successfully cured there, as well as their parents and a large group of physicians, scientists, and researchers who have served there over the years would all heartily agree.  

Today, his daughter Marlo (of 1960s TV “That Girl” fame) is continuing his crusade to keep this institution stable, growing, and financially healthy. She has been visible in a number of TV ads fundraising for St. Jude’s. Now, as we celebrate the patron saint of love, wouldn’t it be beautiful and appropri-ate to give a donati0n to this magnificent research hospital that has saved and given hope to so many over the years?
