Volume 45 - No. 37

Whimsy is a funny thing. Every so often I get a wee bit whimsical and come up with ideas that are a bit out of the ordinary.
Like headlines and sub heads and story lines I’d like to see. For example:

The News Headlines That Weren’t
September 10, 2015
Escondido Mayor Sam Abed Cries “Foul!” Encinitas Mayor Kristin Gaspar is Cuter Then He Is
Political insiders tell The Paper that Abed is fuming. He has spent years acquiring and displaying his wardrobe and is generally regarded as the “Beau Brummel” of Escondido, yet here he is, being upstaged by a beautiful blonde. Worse, he says even incumbent, Supervisor Dave Roberts is cuter than him.
Confidential and sometimes reliable sources confirmed that Hillary has already made contact with Mary’s Wigs, well known Washington, D. C., wiggery and inquired as to patterns and costs for wigs that would cover her bald pate postshaving and post election. If she is not elected, presumably she will retain her hair. And head.
Al Sharpton to Run for President
Al Sharpton, allegedly a pastor of some unknown church, says he has decided, after much prayer, to offer himself up as a candidate for the President.
“I am known as a peacemaker,” he says. “I have been able to adjudicate difference of opinion between poor black folks and the honkie police officers and other honkie city officials over the years.” No word yet from which party he will seek the nomination. Or, for that matter, which The Paper - 760.747.7119
One political wag suggested Sharpton would have a much better chance if he first settled the multi-million dollar debt he owes to the IRS (and for which he has yet to be prosecuted.)

The Paper Donates Archives to the Escondido Humane Society
The Paper has donated some 15,000 tons of old issues to the Escondido Humane Society so that they might employ safe and sanitary and sustainable materials for clean-up duties and puppy training.
The issues, dating from March 11, 1999 to the current date had simply been taking up space and the editor and publisher felt they should be put to good use.
A tearful spokesman for the Society, Lurlean LaFouche, said, “we get so frustrated. Our staffers enjoy the back issues of The Paper so much and read the articles, chuckles, and columns . . . well, the puppies just wind up peeing on the floor.”
Pope Francis Offers Special Deal on Sainthood
Wants to Celebrate Unity with Mexico - Proposed Color Scheme - Yellow and Purple
In his continuing effort to act as “The People’s Pope,” his Excellency, Pope Francis, has arranged for Sainthoods to be readily available for a simple donation of $10,000 to the Mother Church. Posthumous Sainthoods are also available for $20,000.
In what is described by political insiders as a masterful diplomatic stroke, President Barack Obama has signed an Executive Order providing for the immediate repainting of the White House with the colors of Yellow and Purple. He says this will surely enhance close working relationships with Mexico and her people.
Outstanding Catholics, elevated to the rank of saint, are chosen due to goodness, love of fellows and loyalty to the Vatican. And the ability to pay $10,000.

ICE announces Immigration Checkpoints to Slow Canadian Emigration South to US
In what is considered a major blow to those trafficking in unsuspecting Canadians who seek refuge in the United States of America, the White House today announced a series of checkpoints designed to stem the influx of disgruntled Canadians who are fleeing for a better life down here in the lower 48. ICE agents have been trained to detect speech patterns and certain phrases Canadians typically use, such as, “the weather, she sure is hot (or cold) eh?”
Congress has appropriated $1 Billion dollars as seed money for this project. Thos are US dollars, not those funny looking Canadian dollars.
Give Us This Day Our Daily Chuckle This week, a compendium of wit, wisdom and neat stuff you can tell at parties. Enjoy! Airline Announcements?
An airline pilot wrote that on this particular flight he had hammered his ship into the runway really hard. The airline had a policy which required the first officer to stand at the door while the passengers exited, smile, and give them a 'Thanks for flying our airline.'
He said that, in light of his bad landing, he had a hard time looking the passengers in the eye, thinking that someone would have a smart comment. Finally everyone had gotten off except for a little old lady walking with a cane. She said, 'Sir, do you mind if I ask you a question?'
'Why, no, Ma'am,' said the pilot. 'What is it?'
World Profanity Trials Set for September
North County residents are practicing their most strident forms of profanity as they prepare for the World Profanity Trials to be held on Saturday, September 26 at the Dew Drop Inn in San Marcos, CA.
Tommy Tutwiler, one of the chief contenders, gave a statement to The Paper but it was so profane that we cannot print it for fear of offending the tender eyes and ears of our readers. Grand Prize is a keg of beer and a check for $500.
US to Bomb Own Infrastructure
In a move that is being hailed by both houses of Congress the US has announced plans to bomb its own infrastructure, to include roads, bridges, and buildings that are obsolete and in need of major renovations. “We decided that rather than fly all the way to Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria and all those other places where the mileage and fuel consumption are large, and where people talk funny, that it would make more sense and save lots of money to bomb our own infrastructure, thereby saving bilThe little old lady said, 'Did we land, or were we shot down?' ••••• Another flight attendant's comment on a less than perfect landing: 'We ask you to please remain seated as Captain Kangaroo bounces us to the terminal.' ••••• Overheard on an American Airlines flight into Amarillo, Texas, on a particularly windy and bumpy day: During the final approach, the Captain was really having to fight it. After an extremely hard landing, the Flight Attendant said, 'Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to Amarillo . Please remain in your seats with your seat belts fastened while the Captain taxis what's left of our airplane to the gate!' ••••• 'Your seat cushions can be used for flotation; and, in the event of an emergency water landing, please paddle to shore and take them with our compliments.' ••••• 'As you exit the plane, make sure to gather all of your belongings. Anything left behind will be distributed evenly among the flight attendants. Please do not leave children or spouses......except for that gentleman over there.' ••••• Heard on Southwest Airlines just after a very hard landing in Salt Lake City ..

Dixon Lake in Escondido to Serve as Biological Test Site for Great White Sharks
This fall marks the beginning of the Bjorn Flatgaard Biological Laboratories testing of the abillity of Great White Sharks to adapt to fresh water.
Thirteen Great White Sharks will be released in the fresh water Dixon Lake in Escondido, six mature males, six mature females, and one juvenile, gender undetermined.
Each shark will be fitted with a radio transmitter and other electronic measuring devices as well as a GoPro camera affixed above their forehead.

Crash and the Crew have brought the aircraft to a screeching halt against the gate. And, once the tire smoke has cleared and the warning bells are silenced, we'll open the door and you can pick your way through the wreckage to the terminal.' ••••• Part of a flight attendant's arrival announcement: 'We'd like to thank you folks for flying with us today. And, the next time you get the insane urge to go blasting through the skies in a pressurized metal tube, we hope you'll think of US Airways.' ••••• Heard on a Southwest Airline flight - 'Ladies and gentlemen, if you wish to smoke, the smoking section on this airplane is on the wing and if you can light 'em, you can smoke 'em.' ••••• An elderly married couple was at home watching TV. The husband had the remote and was switching back and forth between a fishing channel and the porn channel.
The wife became more and more annoyed and finally said: "For god's sake! Leave it on the porn channel. You already know how to fish!"
Videotape and an electronic map will be reviewed to see how deep the shark swim, when they sleep, what they feed on, what time of day they
feed, and other biologically important information. If the sharks survive in good shape it is planned to let them remain in Dixon Lake with the hopes of developing a regular shark fishery.
San Marcos Mayor Jim Desmond was overheard to say, “I think that’s a really good idea, planting Great White Sharks in Dixon Lake. Our little lake in San Marcos just would not be large enough to accommodate the sharks, let alone the huge crowds of tourists the experiment is sure to draw.”

On Thursday, September 3rd, at 4:05 PM Escondido Police and Fire departments were dispatched to the intersection of Escondido Blvd. and Lincoln Ave. regarding a collision involving a vehicle and two pedestrians. Upon arrival, officers found that a silver Cadillac CTS had struck two adult female pedestrians. Both pedestrians were on the sidewalk and sustained serious injuries. They were treated by Escondido Fire Paramedics and both were subsequently transported by air ambulance to a local hospital for treatment.
The driver of the Cadillac ran from the collision scene. He was located by an Escondido Police Detective two blocks from the location. The driver was taken into custody after a brief foot chase and is currently being processed at the Escondido Police Department. The driver was identified as Joshua Villavicencio, 21 year old resident of Escondido. The cause of the collision is under investigation. Alcohol is believed to be a factor. Any witnesses to the collision are asked to call Officer Steve Braucht of the Traffic Division at the (760) 839-4482 .

Escondido Bank Branch Robbed
A bold bank robber handed a note to a teller at the US Bank inside Albertson’s Grocery Store on East Valley Parkway last Friday, according to Escondido police.
The note said he had a gun but no weapon was seen. The robbery occurred about 3:30pm. The robber was described as Latino, in his 30s, about 5 feet 2 inches tall with a round face. He wore a dark hat, a dark sweater and long black shorts. He was last seen walking east from bank. Escondido Town Hall Meeting

Once football season starts . . . much less gets done. ••••• Sad to see one of my favorite dining spots shuttered. China Bistro, on East Valley Parkway, has closed its doors. The owner had told me that most of the shopping center had been given eviction notices so that the center could be razed and a new complex be built, but that his eviction notice didn’t take effect till December 31st. He chose to close earlier, no doubt due to the rising prices of food that has hit all restaurants hard.
Meat has gone through the roof, 15 to 30% increase; the drought has impacted fruits and vegetables (lemons, for example, once bought for around $26 a case now run around $50 a case; eggs used to be $13 a case, now $50 a case.)
Restaurants, being a competitive business, are reluctant to raise the prices on their menu items. Instead, they have to absorb the costs and get a reduced profit margin. Sometimes their profit margin shrinks by as much as 1520%. ••••• Speaking of food, we enjoyed dining with Tony Abbott and his

It’s been two years since the DMV left Escondido to seek larger and more hospitable quarters. A lease dispute led to the departure. The new office will be more than twice the size of the old Escondido office and is scheduled to open September 28.
Located on Rancheros Drive, near the San Marcos Sheriff’s Station, the building is nearly 30,000 square feet. The city of San Marcos is the landlord and will lease the building to the DMV for $14.7 million over 10 years with 60 percent going to the city and 40 percent to Lusardi Construction as a result of a joint venture agreement. San Marcos expects the money it spent on the project to be recouped within the first five years.

Becky, the former Becky O’Friedman, is a true Irish princess. She lived in America while a young lady and she and Tony met while both were attending the same high scchool. Tony, a successful attorney in San Marcos, and a former Judge ProTem for about seven years, has a fascinating background and he and Becky had many a tale to tell about their young married years when Tony was going to law school and Becky gave up a nursing career (as well as her castle and title as Irish Princess) to enable him to become an attorney. She later got involved as well, serving as the most efficient paralegal, legal secretary, and office boss Tony ever had. She has some health issues now so had to retire from the law office but she and Tony still have many fond memories of working together to build a successful law practice.

Hi....love reading THE PAPER! However, I need to make a little correction. As a former resident of ORANGE COUNTY I must correct your thought of Santa Ana, Anaheim, Irvine being LA suburbs! We have been trying for, what seems a million years to have us not be part of LA.
Santa Ana is an old city that is the county seat ... since ? When the Anaheim Angels became the LA Angels ... we cried but did not have the power to stop it. Please do not say that Orange County is part of LA! It hurts to see in print.

Later, I asked Charlie if he and his wife spoke Serbo-Croation in the home, or English. “I speak English in the home,” he said. “Whenever I cuss it comes out easier in English.” Again, Evelyn and I collapsed.

An Oceanside pet store under siege by activists who claim it sells puppies bred at commercial facilities they call “puppy mills” was cited by a code enforcement officer for not being in compliance with the law. The city’s new ordinance prohibits the sale of commercially bred dogs and cats.
Businessman David Salinas opened his Oceanside Puppy store on Oceanside Boulevard in 2014. At the time, the store was selling dogs and cats obtained from Missouri-based Hunte Corp., which animal rights activists have called a commercial “puppy mill.”

Highway Funding is on the Table
Californians pay some of the highest fuel taxes in the U.S., but our highways are among the nation’s worst. We are now about two months into a transportation special session called by Governor Brown. As expected, calls for increased taxes are echoing loudly in Sacramento. In response, I have introduced AB X1 14 which would prioritize transportation spending as a formal part of the budgeting process. My bill would mandate $1 billion toward transportation infrastructure funding annually without raising taxes or fees, including $500 million for highway upgrades and $500 million for local streets and roads. By making our highway needs a budget priority, transportation will no longer provide an excuse for raising taxes. In fact, the Legislative Analyst's office has shown that there is sufficient funding in the budget, even after Prop. 98 monies are allocated to schools. AB X1 14 is part of a new, detailed 9-point Republican proposal to provide the funds

necessary to fix our crumbling highways, without raising taxes. Our plan would increase transportation funding by $6.6 billion annually and generate 90,000 jobs. The proposals also include redirecting vehicle weight fees back to transportation projects, as originally intended, elimination of redundant Caltrans jobs and simplification of regulations governing highway building and maintenance.
Many of these realistic proposals were recommended by the nonpartisan Legislative Analyst’s Office, and have generated wide bi-partisan support in the past. With current estimates placing California’s deferred highway maintenance costs at about $59 billion, on top of billions more needed for local road repairs, transportation should be a priority, not a budget afterthought. During the special session, I will be looking for cost-effective proposals to maintain and improve state highways, without adding to the excessive tax burden already imposed on California’s long-suffering drivers.

Complete Treatment Planning to Meet Patient's Needs
Treatment planning in today's environment can be confusing to the patient with a myriad of problems, some obvious and others not so. Tooth decay, periodontal disease, endodontic issues, gingival recession, tooth wear, mobility, esthetic issues, muscle soreness and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) problems are just a few of the potential issues facing our patients. It's the responsibility of the dentist to create a treatment plan to address the patient's needs and communicate that plan to the patient. The starting point of the process is a complete examination identifying any and all problems orally - bacterial,
functional and esthetic. It is important to connect with the patient's wants and concerns during the examination process. In co-diagnosing, the doctor relates signs and symptoms of dental disease and formulates treatment options the patient has to resolve the issues.
During the initial stage bacterial, functional and esthetic issues are identified along with possible solutions. TMJ stability is verified and functional and esthetic corrections are presented. A smile analysis is done and all restorations whether they be fillings or crowns, should be done with the teeth's "natural appearance" in mind. If the patient wants their smile enhanced, that too should be incorporated into the treatment plan whether it be a shade improvement or arch development to a more balanced and functional smile correcting tooth position and alignment along the way. Only when the treatment plan is created can the dentist begin to formulate a staged plan for sequenced care. Sometimes the
Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
When ‘Father’ was in Washington, D.C.
During most of the ‘50s, Dwight David Eisenhower was President and because of his historic guidance that won the war in Europe, many looked upon “Ike” as a father-figure.
Born Oct. 4, 1890, and raised in Abilene, Kan., Eisenhower was the typical “all-American” boy. He excelled at the U.S. Military Academy (West Point), graduating in a class that would be tagged, “The class the stars fell upon.” No less than a dozen classmates of Ike’s went on to play significant roles as generals in World War II. Ike would end up as Supreme Allied Commander in

Europe, leading the Allied forces to victory over Germany and Italy.
While he appeared to be a mild-mannered soldier, Ike was anything but … He began being noticed during the ‘30s when he served as Gen. Douglas MacArthur’s chief of staff in Washington, and later in the Philippines. Ike was assigned to Army headquarters in Washington by Gen. George Marshall, Army chief of staff. After the attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941, Marshall elevated him in rank over more senior officers.
In 1942, Ike was put in command of Operation Torch, where American troops joined British forces to oust Germany from North Africa. He soon was elevated to the war-time rank of five-star general and was made Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces in Europe. Ike was responsible for planning and supervising the June 6, 1944, invasion (D-Day), which was the largest military assault in modern history. Because of it, on May 8, 1945, Germany surrendered. After the Japanese surrendered three months later, on August 1945, President

It’s not often that new churches are born in Carlsbad, so this is an opportunity for residents to get in on the ground floor of what promises to be a thriving, family-oriented, multi-generational church.
I was approached last winter about helping revitalize the Pacific Breeze congregation. Together we agreed that it would be best to have Pacific Breeze dissolve and its members join with a fresh group of New Songers in founding a completely new church. With three locations now in Oceanside and one in Fallbrook, New Song will now be one church in five locations. Each location has a campus pastor who preaches live. (They’re all incredible communicators.) I get the privilege of helping them develop churches that are biblically-accurate, relevant to the culture, friendly, and lots of fun to attend.

When the city passed the ordinance officials gave Salinas’ store — the only one affected by the law — a six-month grace period that expired last Tuesday.
Code enforcement officers visited the store Wednesday and found it wasn’t complying with a requirement to display the source of the animals.
The owner was given an administrative warning for violation of the ordinance which requires the store to display a certificate of source indicating the dog was obtained from an animal rescue organization, humane society or noncommercial breeder as defined in the code.
Salinas said his store will comply with all the requirements and that he now obtains all its animals from noncommercial breeders. Local animal rights activists have approached several other cities around the county asking them to adopt anti-puppy mill

The San Diego County Civil Service Commission has upheld a misconduct finding against a sheriff’s deputy who sped without activating his lights and siren and killed a pedestrian.
The accident occurred three years ago this month on San Marcos Boulevard, where Deputy Frank Stalzer was on patrol to catch drunk drivers in an area known as “Restaurant Row.” Stalzer was attempting to catch up to a suspected drunken driver in a white vehicle, according to the commission.
"Employee deliberately failed to use his lights and siren because he feared that the driver might flee," the commission found. Stalzer’s attorney did not respond to a request for comment. Stalzer remains employed by the department.

I told you to turn right onto Charlie taxiway! You turned right on Delta! Stop right there. I know it's difficult for you to tell the difference between C and D, but get it right!"
Continuing her rage to the embarrassed crew, she was now shouting hysterically: "God! Now you've screwed everything up! It'll take forever to sort this out! You stay right there and don't move till I tell you to! You can expect progressive taxi instructions in about half an hour and I want you to go exactly where I tell you, when I tell you, and how I tell you! You got that, US Air 2771?" "Yes, ma'am," the humbled crew responded.
Naturally, the ground control communications frequency fell
terribly silent after the verbal bashing of US Air 2771. Nobody wanted to chance engaging the irate ground controller in her current state of mind.
Tension in every cockpit out around Gatwick was definitely running high. Just then an unknown pilot broke the silence and keyed his microphone, asking, "Wasn't I married to you once?" The morality of dishonesty.

Fourteen years ago our lives were changed forever as a result of the terrorist attacks against the United States. Patriot’s Day is a time to pause and pay tribute to the individuals who lost their lives that tragic day. We remember those they left behind and continue to keep them in our thoughts. As a nation we honor the memories of those who lost their lives or were injured that day, as well as those who responded to the call of duty. We deeply appreciate the brave men and women who serve our country overseas
and here in the United States defending our liberty and combatting terrorism. We are grateful to these brave troops for the great sacrifices they make for us each day.

Since Apple represents only 7% of the PC market compared to Windows 93% it really doesn’t make sense to lump them in with real “Computer Stores.” We asked UT to consider reassigning Apple to a more appropriate category next year. Perhaps they could be folded in with “Art Supplies” or “Pet Toys.”
Paul & Nome Van Middlesworth, The Computer Factory
Who are the “Big Three” in San Diego County?
Each year The San Diego Union Tribune asks readers to select “The Best in San Diego.” These 174 categories are very comprehensive and cover pretty much every aspect of San Diego County lifestyle. For example San Diego’s favorite gay and lesbian bar is “Urban Mo’s Bar and Grill.” San Diego County Credit Union is our favorite CU. We go to Costco for eyewear. Our favorite Museum is the Midway. Our favorite local radio celebs are “Jeff & Jer,” and our favorite local TV personality is Dagmar Midcap? Of course our own Stone Brewing Company is San Diego’s favorite brewer. In the Shopping and Services section there is a category for the “Best Computer Store.” The “Big Three” were Fry’s, Best Buy and The Computer Factory. The Apple Store actually finished in second
We weren’t surprised that Fry’s and Best Buy finished ahead of The Computer Factory. They have multiple locations and hundreds of employees and were rumored to have set up cell phone voting parties on company time. We only allowed our employees to vote once and I’m still not sure that Nome even voted for us. While we are honored to place so high and grateful to the customers who voted for us, it is important to note that there are significant differences between the way “Big Box” stores and The Computer Factory operate.
So what does that really mean to us? It tells us that the disc itself does have a God-given ability to heal and repair if provided the proper mechanisms for self-healing. There is a specific mechanism inherent in each of the spinal discs called the “pump mechanism of disc nutri-tion” (see Fig 1). When this mechanism is not working properly, the spinal discs will begin to die causing bulges, herniations, and eventually spinal stenosis.
The spinal disc is one of the very few tissues in the body that does not have a direct blood supply for circulation. The only way that the disc gets the circulation of water, oxygen and nutrients for self-repair is via this specific disc pump mechanism. What happens when you decrease cir-culation in any type of tissue, whether it be animal tissue, plant tissue or human tissue? Exactly, it begins to become weak and begins to degenerate.
Symptoms Are NOT The Problem
Now the symptoms of pain, numbness,
Here’s the difference. Solving customer’s problems is what we do, regardless of where they originally bought it. That’s how we make a living. Big Box service departments focus is on supporting in store merchandising and processing returns. They are not interested in fixing customer problems unless it can result in a merchandise sale. That is why you don’t take out-of-warranty computer problems to the Geek Squad at Best Buy or the service department at Fry’s. It’s not that they are bad people. It’s just that they
do not have a problem solving focus.
We build, upgrade and repair PCs. That’s all we do. Our primary focus is on our relationship with our customers. When they come to the Computer Factory they see the same faces year after year. Sometimes a customer is unhappy with us. If we can’t make that customer happy we feel bad. When customers are happy with the work we’ve done for them we all feel good. Most of the time we feel pretty darn good. So thank you so much for making us the “The Best” (single location, genuine) “Computer Store” in San Diego. We’re still wondering about Dagmar Midcap.
Big Box stores derive over 90% of their revenue and 100% of their profit from merchandise sales. Only a fraction of that from computer sales. Customer Service departments generate less than 10% of their revenue and none of the profit. For “Big Box” stores, service departments are “cost centers” whose primary function is to support merchandise sales. At the Computer Factory things are quite different. Merchandise sales account for only 50% of our gross revenues and is 100% com-
Escondido, CA—In a 2002 issue of Neurosurgical Focus, a peerreviewed article was published by a Dr. Michael D.

brown leaves are the plant’s problem? Of course not, the leaves turning brown is just a condition that is telling you that there is something wrong with the plant. The plant is unhealthy and needs water and nutrients. You could spray paint the leaves green but it just covers up the condition. The underlying problem still exists and will continue to produce brown leaves until you fix the actual problem. and tingling that most experience with bulging, herniated or degenerative discs are NOT the problem. The definition of a symptom: “something that indicates the existence of something else.” It is just like the dashboard of your car telling you that something is wrong (brake lights out, engine needs checked, overheating, etc.) Those lights that appear in your car dash are NOT the problem. You can remove the lights surgically or put a piece of duct tape over the lights but the problem will NOT be fixed...the problem is still present.
Let’s take a look at a plant for example...if the leaves on a plant begin to turn brown, would you say that the
extent of your disc damage for only $70. This examination will consist of a detailed neurological evaluation, extensive orthopedic testing, and a detailed analysis of the findings of your evaluation. He will sit down with you and go over your condition with you in complete detail. You will know exactly what is causing all your pain (or other symptoms).
In your spine, when the pump mechanism of disc nutrition fails, the disc will begin to de-generate and become weak. This weakness in the disc is what produces the bulging, herniated, and degenerative discs.
The treatment that is provided at Dr. Heilman’s Spine and Neuropathy Care Center in Escondido is revolutionary and is specifically designed to artificially re-create the pump mechanism in the discs which allows the spinal discs to heal and repair. The best part of the treatment is that it uses no drugs, no injections, and no surgery. Plus it’s painless and many patients relax and fall asleep while undergoing the treatment. The amount of treatment needed to allow the discs to heal and repair varies from person to person and can only be determined after a detailed neurological and orthopedic evaluation. We do NOT accept everyone for treatment and will let you know if we can accept your case for treatment. Dr. Stephen Heilman, DC at the Spine and Neuropathy Care Center in Escondido, CA will do a spinal disc severity examination to determine the

‘Tom Morrow’ Cont. from Page 6
Truman appointed Ike as Army Chief of Staff and later as the first Supreme Commander of the newlyformed North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).
In 1952, both the Democrats and Republicans wooed Ike to run for President, but no one was sure which party he favored. Ike won election in a landslide as a Republican. President Eisenhower's main goals were to keep pressure on the Soviet Union and reduce federal deficits. Ike was not a good speaker, but there was no doubt as to who was in charge. He was the epitome of a world leader. In the first year of his presidency, Ike threatened the use of nuclear weapons in order to conclude the Korean War. His policy of nuclear deterrence prioritized inexpensive nuclear weapons. In 1954, Eisenhower

rejected sending U.S. military force to help the French retain their colony of Vietnam.
In 1957, after the Soviet Union launched the world's first artificial satellite, Ike authorized the establishment of National Aeronautics & Space Agency (NASA), which ignited the space race. During the Suez Crisis of 1956, Eisenhower condemned the Israel, British and French invasion of Egypt, and forced them to withdraw. Taking a lesson from Germany’s modern autobahn, Ike launched the Interstate Highway System. Interestingly enough, he started the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (which led to the Internet). Also he established a strong science education program and encouraged the peaceful use of nuclear power. In 1956, Ike ordered the federal court to desegregate public schools. He also signed civil rights legislation in 1957 and 1960 to protect the right to vote. During his tenure, Ike made five appointments to the U.S. Supreme Court.
In his farewell address to the nation, Eisenhower expressed his concerns about the dangers of corporate control of Congress and massive military spending, particularly deficit spending and government contracts to private military manufacturers, and coined the term "Military-IndustrialCongressional Complex.” Future presidents wouldn’t heed the warning. Voted Gallup's most admired man 12 times, Ike achieved widespread popular esteem both in and out of office. His two terms saw economic prosperity across the nation. Since the late 20th century, consensus among Western scholars has consistently held Eisenhower to be one of our greatest Presidents.

est robber (who had barely finished elementary school): "Hey, maybe we should count how much we stole?"
The older man replied: "Don’t be stupid. It's a lot of money so let's wait for the news on TV to find out how much money was taken from the bank." This is an example of how life experience is more important than a degree.
After the robbery, the manager of the bank said to his accountant: "Let's call the cops and tell them how much has been stolen."
"Wait”, said the Accountant, "before we do that, let's add the $800,000 we took for ourselves a few months ago and just say that it was stolen as part of today’s robbery." This is an example of taking advantage of an opportunity.
