Happy Birthday Theodore Roosevelt

Started by Will Gentile Oct 27, 2012. 0 Replies

In honor of Theodore Roosevelt, born OCTOBER 27, 1858, a man's man, and an unequaled example worthy of imitation I'd like to share a few quotes from him. I am in favor of the strongest military…Continue

Would TR be a Progressive today?

TR the "Trust Buster" was largely responsible for curbing the excesses of the robber barons of the Guilded Age and applying the power of the Federal Government over the economy. That's what people…Continue

Apparently Teddy is the man to beat in an all out knife fight between the presidents. Personally, I'd definitely give him odds.

Teddy Roosevelt, a split second before spitting in the invisible face of death, and pimp slapping it with his tiny neck-hand.

Recently read into more of TR and I find him fascinating. If I could use half the moral power, integrity and character he did I would be a happy man.

Just read the family story by Mr. Herrera.  As an admirer of TR, you should have read The Rough Riders somewhere along the way.  The Rough Riders, formally the 1st US Volunteer Cavalry Regiment, were not a private expeditionary force.  It was an officially constituted regulation component of the US Army, recruited and organized in a manner similar as the state-recruited and numbered volunteer regiments of the American Civil War.  The men were members of the US Army, not "private military contractors", a.k.a. mercenaries.  As serving US Army soldiers, they were subject to full military discipline and paid the same pittance as the Regulars.

An enlistee from Tampa would have been a rarity in that regiment, as it was raised in Arizona and New Mexico Territories, although the regiment did have a fairish sprinkling of Ivy League "gentleman rankers" and some men from the other "west of the Mississippi" states and territories.

Ive got that wallpaper of TR shooting Bigfoot too. Except for the fact that bigfoot doesnt exsist, that machine gun didnt exsist in 1900s, the symbol on his belt isnt right and TR didnt smoke it's perfectly accurate

My great grandfather came from Cuba to Tampa and rolled cigars at a factory there. He was running away from the Spanish provincial government, he was a rebel. Teddy Roosevelt came by the factory one day to recruit for an expeditionary force to invade Cuba. Obviously everyone joined. They became known as the Rough Riders. Similar to the private military contractors we have today like Black Water, etc ... My great aunt has an old picture of my great grandfather and Teddy Roosevelt posing in the Santiago, Cuba area. Its one of our families most treasured heirlooms.

If you have a kindle or a tablet with the kindle or even the kobo app you can download his autobiography free from either one of those stores.  It is a good read.  I just started reading it but I don't want to put it down.

ISIS and male emasculation

I've been keeping up with developments in the Middle East with ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria), the militant terrorist group that has declared itself a caliphate and are terrorizing people in that region.I've been reading that possibly dozens of people from the U.S. and U.K. have left their homes and become operatives of that group, most notably the unknown member who executed journalist Jim Foley on video, and Douglas MacAuthur McCain, the Minnesotan who was killed in Syria fighting…See More
