WELCOME TO 8th GRADE US HISTORY AND CIVICS… BECOME A DANGEROUS CITIZEN!!

 

WELCOME TO “ALANA’S ANTFARM”!!

HOW DOES THE GUY WHO DRIVES THE SNOWPLOW GET TO WORK IN THE MORNING??


TEST ON THURSDAY:
Student writing:
• What do you think is the hardest thing about being a teenager today? Why? How can you overcome that?
• You are graduating this year. What scares or concerns you most about high school? Why? What have you heard from others or your siblings?



This is important to understand:
“At what point shall we expect the approach of danger?
By what means shall we fortify against it?
Shall we expect some transatlantic military giant, to step the Ocean, and crush us at a blow?
Never! All the armies of Europe, Asia and Africa combined, with all the treasure of the earth(our own excepted) in their military chest; with a Buonaparte for a commander,could not by force, take a drink from the Ohio, or make a track on the Blue Ridge,in a trial of a thousand years.
At what point, then, is the approach of danger to be expected?
I answer, if it ever reach us it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad.

——>If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher.As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide.”<------- ~Abraham Lincoln, [Address Before the Young Men's Lyceum of Springfield, Illinois (January 27, 1838)].

YOU HAVE A TEST ON THE AMENDMENTS, WASHINGTON’S PRESIDENCY, AND ADAMS’ PRESIDENCY ON 28 MARCH. DON’T WAIT TIL WEDNESDAY NIGHT TO LOOK OVER THE MATERIAL. IT WILL BE TOO LATE.

Understanding the Bill of Rights is essential to understanding your freedoms. If you don’t know your rights, you won’t know when you lose them.

It is essential that we know what we don’t know so we can ask the right questions. Remember, no one has all the answers, not even Google.



THIS CLASS is a place to ponder; a place to learn; a place to figure out why people do all the wacky things they do!

Defend the Republic!


“Of every one hundred men they send me, ten shouldn’t even be here. Eighty of them are nothing but targets, nine of them are real fighters – we are lucky to have them, they make the battle. Ahhhh but the one. One of them is a warrior and he will bring the others home.” Heraclitus, 500 BC. GO BIG OR GO HOME!!!

THINGS TO THINK ABOUT:

You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
You cannot build character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and independence
You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves.
~Abraham Lincoln

So, what have we learned in 2073 years? (Apparently not
much!)”The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be
refilled, public debt should be reduced,the arrogance of
officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the
assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest
Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work,
instead of living on public assistance.”

Cicero – 55 BC
WOWSERS

As Yogi Berra said: “No one goes there anymore; it’s too crowded”.
