The Far Middle
The Two-Party Cartel

The Far Middle episode 89 is proudly dedicated to perhaps the greatest professional football player that most people never heard of: Gino Marchetti. A player for the ages, Nick looks back on Gino's great career that spanned fighting in the Battle of the Bulge, dominating the gridiron, and growing a restaurant chain to more than 300 locations. Nick begins this episode’s connections by noting that individuals like Gino are rare today, much like the political moderate, whether that’s a moderate Republican or moderate Democrat. Nick proceeds to revisit his recent commentary, “America Needs a Third Party.” A third party would put pressure on the two-party cartel that exists today, resulting in the inevitable moderation of the Democratic and Republican parties. “I’m not a politician and don’t desire to be one, but I do want to be able to choose the very best of options when it comes to selecting our political leaders,” says Nick. “That’s what the founding fathers envisioned, and I think that’s what America deserves.” Evidence that Americans are rejecting extreme positions can be found in domestic population moves this past year. Nick discusses census data showing Americans are rushing to the exists from states like California, New York, Illinois, Massachusetts, and New Jersey. These states, coincidentally led by some of the most Leftist leaders you’ll find, are seeing an exodus as residents look for something more moderate and more normal. Nick moves from extreme ideology in the U.S. to similar ideology in Europe. That ideology, along with climate change policy, has led to skyrocketing electricity prices and situations where the cost of charging an electric vehicle is more expensive than fueling a gasoline-powered vehicle. Meanwhile in Europe a larger problem looms. European governments are in the process of or preparing to flood the market with new bonds and debt issuances, explains Nick. He criticizes these governments for borrowing more to shield consumers, attempting to mask the economic consequences of the policies these governments are responsible for. Nick closes by recounting a recent Bob Dylan interview where Dylan discussed how he spent his time during the lockdown of the pandemic—including restoring his 56 Chevy, painting, reading, and perhaps opium if laying around. While Nick is a Dylan fan, he counters that if we all take the Dylan lockdown approach the world is going to come to a grinding halt. And that government actions that aim to take us there are not the path forward. The sooner that we realize that the better.

A south Georgia woman is charged with stealing three handguns from her boyfriend in Cherokee County after meeting him for the first time in person. Katrina Leanne Minkema of Douglas, was arrested Sunday and charged with one felony count of theft by taking, according to a warrant filed December 7 by the Cherokee Sheriff's Office. Authorities say Minkema allegedly stole a Ruger 9MM, a Smith and Wesson 22 caliber and a CZ P10 handgun, each with an extra magazine, from the property of a man she had an online relationship with. According to the warrant the total value of the stolen guns was between $1,500 and $5,000. The alleged incident took place between 5 a.m. and 1 p.m. October 15 in Woodstock, according to the warrant. According to the sheriff's office, Minkema met her boyfriend for the first time at his home when she visited him at about 5 a.m. October 15. The boyfriend told authorities that that morning, he left the home for work, and when he decided to come home for lunch, Minkema and his three handguns were missing. Minkema was released from the Cherokee County jail Monday on a $4,875 bond, according to Cherokee Sheriff's Office spokesperson Patty Pan. Recruiting for some of Cherokee County's top football players has picked up some steam over the past few weeks. Players from all six schools have seen recognition come their way, with Creekview's Andrew Rosinksi proving to be a valued commodity, and Cherokee's Kyan Simmons picking up his third offer. Rosinski, a 6-foot-6. 282-pound offensive lineman, has offers from Georgia Tech, Duke, Vanderbilt, Mississippi State, North Carolina, Liberty and Charlotte. He visited Duke and Vanderbilt last week and earned two Power Five offers this month alone. Georgia, Georgia Tech and Georgia Southern visited Creekview's campus Thursday. Simmons ' recruiting process started slow, but coming into the 2022 season fully healthy and one of few veterans on the Warriors' defense, he led the team with 103 tackles, 11 sacks and 10 tackles for loss. Simmons has offers from Football Championship Subdivision program Marist and Division II Shorter, as well as Westminster College, a Division III program in Pennsylvania. Sequoyah's Jackson Hancock was offered by Georgia Southern on Thursday and has visited Georgia State. Woodstock's Evan McKeller received his first offer Wednesday from Division III Anna Maria College in Masschusetts. The senior linebacker was third on the Wolverines' tackle chart this season with 67, including four for loss and one sack. Etowah defensive back Frank Mosley committed to Division II West Virginia State on January 21 after finishing fourth on the Eagles' defense with 60 tackles this year. Etowah offensive lineman Tate Nelms is set to visit South Florida this weekend, while fellow lineman Andrew McNair was invited to the Georgia vs. Florida High School Showcase on January 19. Canton resident Frank Capuozzi, the oldest member of the Cherokee County Senior Services Center, celebrated his milestone of a fulfilling 100 years of life at a celebration held on January 27. A large birthday card was made and signed by multiple members of the community. Party attendees enjoyed slices of a cake provided by his daughter, Antoinette Kelly. The celebration began officially at 11:30 a.m. at the center in Canton. From his left pocket, Capuozzi pulled out a gold pocket-watch to show guests around the table. The watch was a gift from one of the party attendees who Capuozzi regularly asked for the time from. He laughed heartily as he showed the engraved cover that reads “100 Years.” He was described as “lively” and “down-to-earth” by those passing his table at his party. Capuozzi is now mostly deaf due to his time serving in World War II as a gunner. He served on three fronts in France, Germany and Belgium, including the Battle of the Bulge. He recounted his time in France with a night he spent at Sacré-Cœur, a basilica in Paris, lighting candles for prayers that he would live to see his 40th year. At 100 years old, he says he wouldn't change a single decision he's made. He's the proud father of three children, a grandfather of three and a great-grandfather to two. Capuozzi spent close to four decades working as a hairdresser before his retirement at 60 years old. He also worked with CBS and NBC studios during that time. He moved to Canton to live with his daughter after the death of his third wife, Leanore Cappuozzi, two years prior. He spent his childhood growing up in Naples, Italy, where he was born. He is the oldest child in his family and had two sisters, Maria Ricciardi and Rita Fitzsimmons, who were twins. Fitzsimmons died at 94 years old but Ricciardi is now 95 years old. An officer with the Woodstock Police Department was recognized this week for helping a driver who was stranded on the road after running out of gas. Seeing the driver in need, Officer B. Keane used his patrol car and then his own body strength to help push the pedestrian's car, the department shared on its Facebook page. The daughter of the driver made a Facebook post thanking the officer and tagging the Woodstock Police Department. The daughter said she brought gas to her mother, but it wasn't enough to get the car started. Officer Keane pushed the vehicle with his patrol car, and then when the car would not make it all the way, he got out and pushed it the rest of the way himself. The Woodstock Police Department was made aware of officer Keane's good deed via this Facebook post. “We were tagged in the post below and just had to share!,” the Facebook post by the Woodstock PD reads. “Thank you, Officer B. Keane, for going above and beyond! We think he's pretty amazing too!” The city of Woodstock and the Georgia Department of Transportation are working together to help alleviate congestion at the intersection of Interstate 575 and Ridgewalk Parkway. The Woodstock City Council approved a cost proposal this week from Arcadis for the design services of a project the city is calling the “I-575 — Ridgewalk Parkway Diverging Diamond Interchange.” A diverging diamond interchange allows non-highway lanes to cross to the opposite side of the highway at each interchange. By doing this, two-way left-turn traffic is allowed on the highway without the need for traffic signals. The cost proposal shows a maximum allowable cost of $934,407.90 for the task order with Arcadis, according to city documents. If the scope of services changes, there will be additional costs. The design phase includes field surveys and survey database, environmental documentation including all required special studies, geotechnical, preliminary construction plans, as well as lighting and right-of-way plans (including revisions) for the improvements at I-575 at the Ridgewalk Parkway interchange, according to city documents. The work will be completed in accordance with GDOT Plan Development Process and GDOT Environmental Procedures Manual, GDOT Plan Presentation Guide, design policies and manuals and current software versions approved by the department's project manager. Plans will be approved by GDOT and the Federal Highway Administration due to I-575 being a federal interstate, said Stacy Brown, marketing and communications manager for the city of Woodstock. Camp Gideon, a Christian-based camp on Lake Allatoona, announced their three finalists for the 2023 Valor and Virtue Mentor Award. The award honors "a young woman who displays a lifestyle of mentoring, exhibits virtues of self-control, kindness and humility while using her influence to positively impact lives within her community," according to the camp's website.  This year's finalists are Caroline Latimer, Bailey Bridges and Sarah Souza. The winner of the award will be announced at the 2023 Annual Ladies Tea fundraising event from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on February 25. It will be held at Victory Church in Acworth. Tickets can be purchased at Camp Gideon dot com.  Proceeds from the fundraiser will go to the Camp Gideon scholarship fund, which pays for a camp experience for children of families in hardships such as single parents, low-income households, those struggling with a job loss or chronic medical conditions. #CherokeeCounty #Georgia #LocalNews           -          -          -          -          -          -          The Cherokee Tribune Ledger Podcast is local news for Woodstock, Canton, and all of Cherokee County. Register Here for your essential digital news.             This podcast was produced and published for the Cherokee Tribune-Ledger and TribuneLedgerNews.com by BG Ad Group     For more information be sure to visit https://www.bgpodcastnetwork.com/    https://cuofga.org/   https://www.drakerealty.com/   https://www.esogrepair.com/     See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

The nations of the earth, he concluded, or at least the enlightened part of them, were moving inevitably toward a condition of social equality that in the world of politics was taking the form of democracy. This new kind of polity was rising on the ruins of the old, hierarchical societies, and the young republic was the clearest example of it. Previous visitors from overseas had concentrated on the minutiae of daily American life, but Tocqueville was after bigger game. He wanted to tease out the broad implications of increasing social equality and democracy rather than focus on the details that were bound to differ from one nation to another. These implications then would have the widest possible relevance to the various societies of the emerging modern world. This new dispensation, Tocqueville realized, was full of both promise and peril, and he devoted himself to transmitting this balanced assessment to his European contemporaries. The book that resulted, Democracy in America, has been called the "greatest work ever written about one country by a citizen of another." Because his conclusions were so general and of such wide application his book appropriately addressed the Americans of his own time, his fellow citizens in France still trying to come to terms with the modern world, and, not least, speaks to our own distracted society today, the uneasy inheritor of the raw republic in whose image he saw the future.

Invention of the movie camera offered a broad and diverse tool for artists to express their own interpretation of nature and life around them. Camera became another tool, a "brush" for artists to create moving images which projected their own aesthetic principles and perceptions. There will be a presentation of early cinema from France, Soviet Union, England and the United States. Early films by the Lumiere Brothers to Andy Warhol and how through ages, cinema has evolved from a vehicle to tell a story or document everyday life, to a tool expressing an individual artist's personal vision. Through the sessions of the lectures there will be an ongoing discussion about the goal for Experimental Films, which is to place the viewer in a more active and more thoughtful relationship to the film, which will be discussed. The 6 sessions will be an opportunity for the participants to understand this particular form of cinema and the various expressions and theorizations from various artists. The sessions will be coordinated with projections of stills from movies and at the end of each session there will be screening of a film, and an open discussion by the participants. During the entire sessions of the courses, informal and open-minded discussions of opinions will be encouraged. SPECIAL NOTE: Donald Sosin who is a well regarded musician and has composed musical scores for may experimental films will be appearing at the Wednesday, January 18th session for the Experimental Cinema. please see details below.

The two plays are often called "festive" comedies because each commemorates a significant day marked by popular license in the Elizabethan calendar. Twelfth Night refers to the last night of the twelve days of Christmas, and in spite of its religious origin it was a thoroughly secular celebration. A Midsummer Night's Dream takes its title from the evening before midsummer day, the summer solstice and the longest day of the year, when the prospect of warmth and lengthening days inspired much misbehavior. If time permits, we'll also read Troilus and Cressida, one of Shakespeare's so-called "problem plays," which contain both tragic and comic elements and thus resist easy placement in the canon.

Christmas has always been an important holiday in the U.S., but it took on a special meaning during World War II (1941-45) because so many families had loved ones serving in the armed forces that they were not able to return home for Christmas. Although the Second World War did not have holidays, Americans both at home and overseas did everything they could to celebrate Christmas. Christmas 1941 was not much different for most Americans than the year before, even though the disaster of Pearl Harbor had occurred just weeks earlierIt is sad to remember when looking back on Christmas 1940, that the holiday was not a joyous one for all Americans. The Christmas season offered the hope that although so many were absent this year, the war might end the following year, and missing family members could come home. The G.I.s, not yet at home at Christmastime in 1940, celebrated anyway, happy to be back on American soil. Ironically, although GIs abroad could not be with their families at that time, their fighting the war ensured they would be free to spend future Christmas holidays with their families. Citizens even volunteered to sacrifice a Christmas spent with family back home in America to bring veterans home for New Year's Eve. So masses of American servicemen--some 250,000 of them, some carrying brand-new discharge papers, others only days or two from separation--found themselves on American soil again on Christmas Day, 1945, but still not entirely at home. The war's end barely meant the 2,000,000 men and women eligible for separation--those who might have been done on active duty--were back at home on the two civilians when America's Christmas came. In the Pacific, the Americans involved in a costly island-hopping tour to the Philippines and Japan were unaware of Christmas. Being separated from family and friends over the holidays made the wars all the more difficult for those serving, but creativity and generosity made Christmas meaningful and memorable. Any widespread Christmas Day truce for 1944 was not possible, because only nine days before Christmas, the Germans launched the largest counteroffensive of the war in the West, which led to the Battle of the Bulge and a ferocious battle for the entire holiday. The first German Christmas of World War II was celebrated in December 1939, when the front was mostly quiet; the western allies and region were at the height of what was called a phony war, in between the time following the invasion of Poland in September 1939 and the invasion of Norway in April 1940. There were few opportunities for similar events during the Second World War since American troops were only in relatively close contact with German forces in North Africa and Italy before the D-Day landings in 1944. While the 1914 Christmas Truce has achieved legendary status in the history of World War I, little has been written about comparable events involving American troops.

[This blog will always be free to read, but it's also how I pay my bills. So, if you like what you read, please consider a paid subscription.]Today, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy met with President Biden at the White House in the afternoon and addressed a joint session of Congress later in the evening at the invitation of Speaker Nancy Pelosi in one of her final acts as the nation's top lawmaker. You may recall the Speaker flew to Kyiv to meet with Pres. Zelenskyy and offer moral support back in May.(I also want to note how proud I felt to see Vice President Harris and Speaker Pelosi standing behind Pres. Zelenskky, as is tradition, perhaps the last time we'll see two women behind the dais for quite a while.)His public remarks at the presser were succinct and compelling, and tonight's speech may be one of the finest oratorical performances of the modern era in global politics, and I don't say that lightly.It was especially impressive given his English proficiency. It was obvious to all that President Zelenskyy's fluency in courage and family easily transcended the language barrier.His communications approach repeatedly goes back to the same theme: family, family, family. Parents and children, over and over. This war is about ensuring parents watch their children grow into happy adults in a free and independent Ukraine. It is a message that is authentic and highly effective.Pres. Zelenskyy walked into a chamber that, for many years, has been full of pettiness and cynicism and childish antics by unserious politicians and—solely through his passion and common sense—appeared to be a moral giant from a distant era. His speech couldn't have gone any better.Some of my favorite lines:Against all odds and doom and gloom, Ukraine didn't fall. Ukraine is alive and kicking.…It gives me good reason to share with you our first joint victory. We defeated Russia in the battle for minds of the world.…Europeans gained this victory, and it's why Europe is stronger than ever. The Russian tyranny lost control over us.…The struggle will define what world our children and our grandchildren live in... this battle cannot be frozen or ignored.…The world is too interconnected and interdependent to allow someone to stay aside and feel safe when such a battle continues. Our nations are allies in this battle, and next year will be a turning point.…I assure you that Ukrainian soldiers can perfectly operate American tanks and planes themselves.…Your money is not charity. It is an investment in the global security that we handle in the most responsible way.…We'll celebrate Christmas, and even if there is no electricity, the light of our faith, in ourselves, will not be put out.He also compared Ukrainian soldiers fighting for their independence to American soldiers fighting in the Battle of the Bulge—both at Christmastime, both against a tyrannical force, 78 years apart. An incredibly effective rhetorical strategy.But despite that, there were some pundits—whom I will not name here—that seemed to be displeased with his attire. These pundits are failing to read the room, but moreover, they're just completely missing the point.His clothes are intentional symbolism. A country and its leader under immediate and existential threats from a tyrannical force have no time for suits and neckties.Notice, too, that he's not wearing a formal uniform.He has no visible rank or medals or nametapes. He has no commander's cap or mirror-shined shoes. He has no epaulets or brass buttons or starched creases. He isn't even wearing patches.He's wearing simple, practical fatigues. He's wearing what women and men who are fighting on the frontlines in Ukraine are wearing.He's wearing what the mothers and fathers of Ukraine are wearing as they've spent weeks and months away from their scared children. He's wearing what the school teachers and plumbers and doctors and janitors of his country are wearing as they defend their right to exist freely. He's wearing the urgency of the moment, and thank god for that.That's the point.Charlotte's Web Thoughts is a reader-supported publication.

Over one million Black men and women served in World War II. Black troops were at Normandy, Iwo Jima, and the Battle of the Bulge, serving in segregated units and performing unheralded but vital support jobs, only to be denied housing and educational opportunities on their return home. Without their crucial contributions to the war effort, the United States could not have won the war. And yet the stories of these Black veterans have long been ignored, cast aside in favor of the myth of the “Good War” fought by the “Greatest Generation.” Half American: The Epic Story of African Americans Fighting World War II at Home and Abroad (Viking, 2022) is American history as you've likely never read it before. In these pages are stories of Black heroes such as Thurgood Marshall, the chief lawyer for the NAACP, who investigated and publicized violence against Black troops and veterans; Benjamin O. Davis, Jr., leader of the Tuskegee Airmen, who was at the forefront of the years-long fight to open the Air Force to Black pilots; Ella Baker, the civil rights leader who advocated on the home front for Black soldiers, veterans, and their families; James Thompson, the 26-year-old whose letter to a newspaper laying bare the hypocrisy of fighting against fascism abroad when racism still reigned at home set in motion the Double Victory campaign; and poet Langston Hughes, who worked as a war correspondent for the Black press. Their bravery and patriotism in the face of unfathomable racism is both inspiring and galvanizing. In a time when the questions World War II raised regarding race and democracy in America remain troublingly relevant and still unanswered, this meticulously researched retelling makes for urgently necessary reading.

COL Douglas C. Dillard describes fighting in WWII as an Army parachute regiment sergeant during the Battle of the Bulge. He also discusses the cold, harsh environment they faced, and how he almost lost both of his legs because of it.  During the interview, Dillard describes an encounter he had with a captured German soldier: “We caught a German there in that field. And we were all really infuriated and I looked at the guy and he had a breast full of ribbons on this tunic. And I don't know why I did it and I still have them today, but I reached up and grabbed those ribbons and just ripped them off his uniform and stuck them in my pocket. And why I did it, I still don't know. But there was never any thought in my mind of shooting him. It's the furthest thought because we weren't raised that way. But in a rage of passion, in a firefight, then you would do it.” Dillard would later serve Korea and Vietnam, and retire in 1977 after earning the Distinguished Flying Cross, Legion of Merit (2 Oak Leaf Clusters), Meritorious Service Medal, Joint Service Commendation Medal, Bronze Star Medal (1 Oak Leaf Cluster), Air Medal (4 Oak Leaf Clusters), and the Army Commendation Medal (2 Oak Leaf Clusters). He was inducted into the Military Intelligence hall of fame in 1990.  He also wrote two books about his experiences, Operation Aviary, and Tiger Hunters.  You can learn more about COL Dillard here.

America is changing, and it looks like the changes aren't creating a prosperous America.

Can America continue down the path of immorality and still be considered good? Can you preserve the Constitution without having morals? Let us remember what made America great as Tim brings us the story of George Washington and the Battle of Trenton, telling how God worked with and helped Washington's army defeat a garrison of Hessian mercenaries. Another great American Christmas story comes from Christmas in 1944 as General George Patton was leading his men during the Battle of the Bulge, taking the Third U.S. Army to the north and counterattacking against the German flank.

Hello Warrior Next Door listeners! This is a unique 1 episode "series" in which we are honored to be hosting the author and former NBS Sports/ESPN Sports Center director Peter Lion. We will get to know Peter and discuss his books written about two very unique true stories from WWII. His first book "The American St. Nick" chronicles the true story of a handful of soldiers from 28th Infantry Division who brought a unique St. Nicholas Day to the war torn children of Wiltz, Luxembourg just 10 days before the Battle of the Bulge broke out. We also discuss his second book "Merg" written about a fallen GI, George Mergenthaler, who was so beloved by the citizens of Eschweiler, Luxembourg, that they dedicated a church to the memory of him. It is the only church in the world that exists in tribute to a single specific WWII GI.
