Veni Sancte Spiritus
Veni, Sancte Spiritus,
et emítte caélitus
lucis tuae rádium.
Veni, pater páuperum,
veni, dator múnerum,
veni, lumen córdium.
dulcis hospes animae.
In labóre réquies,
in aestu tempéries,
in fletu solácium.
O lux beatíssima,
reple cordis íntima
Sine tuo númine,
nihil est in hómine,
nihil est innoxium.
Lava quod est sórdidum,
riga quod est áridum,
sana quod est sáucium.
Flecte quod est rígidum,
fove quod est frigidum,
rege quod est devium.
Da tuis fidélibus,
in te confidéntibus,
Da virtútis méritum
da salútis éxitum,
da perénne gáudium.
- Attributed to Pope Leo III
Come, Holy Spirit
Come, Holy Spirit, come!
And from Thy celestial home
Shed a ray of light divine!
Come Father of the poor!
Come source of all our store!
Come within our bosoms shine!
Thou, of comforters the best;
Thou, the soul's most welcome guest;
Sweet refreshment here below;
In our labor, rest most sweet;
Grateful coolness in the heat,
Solace in the midst of woe.
O most blessed Light divine
Shine within these hearts of Thine.
And our inmost being fill!
Where you are not, man has naught,
Nothing good in deed or thought,
Nothing free from taint of ill.
Heal our wounds, our strength renew;
On our dryness pour Thy dew;
Wash the stains of guilt away:
Bend the stubborn heart and will;
Melt the frozen, warm the chill;
Guide the steps that go astray.
On the faithful who adore
And confess you, evermore
In your sev'nfold gift descend;
Give them virtue's sure reward;
Give them Thy salvation, Lord;
Give them joys that never end.
(Sequence for Penetcost Liturgy, Latin Rite)

Happy 100th Marion Robert Morrison
He also appeared several times on Laugh-In where he showed off his comedic talent (& a willingness to spoof himself). On 1 appearance he did the following poem entitled The Sky:
"The sky is blue, the grass is green.
Get off your ass and join the Marines."
Still, it is his many great movie roles he will be remembered for, too many to list here. My favorite Wayne movie is Howard Hawks' Rio Bravo. In it he plays Sheriff John T. Chance. He co-starred with Dean Martin (1 of his best roles), Ricky Nelson, Walter Brennan & Angie Dickinson. Unfortunately, the trailer isn't available for posting (you can see it here) but here is a video of the song My Rifle, My Pony and Me as sung by Dino & Ricky Nelson:
Winterset, IA has a John Wayne museum in the works & is having a centenial celebration this weekend.
HAPPY 100TH DUKE!

What Defines Excessive Profits?
1st year - 1 item sold - 5 cents profit
2nd year - 2 items sold - 10 cents profit
3rd year - 10 items sold - 50 cents profit
Lets play with the stats.
Year 2 saw a 100% increase, a doubling, in profits, year 3 saw a 500% increase from year 2. Years 2 & 3 saw record profits. Why, increase in sales.

Daniel Myers - A "Fresh" Voice in Politics
Q2: Where are you in school? What sort of activities are you involved in at school?
A2: I am homeschooled
Q3: What about outside of school? Besides you PoliticsOne activies what are you involved in
Q4: How about music, any special types that you like, artists that interest you most, are your favorites?
A4: I really only listen to Christian Music, my favorite artists are Israel Houghton, Hillsong, and Jeremy Camp
Q5: How about books?
A5: My Favorite book would have to be Saddams Secrets by Georges Sada
Q6: How about Movies?
A6: Anything to do with Action, Adventure, and Mystery I'm all for it!
Q7: How about TV?
A7: The shows I love to watch are CSI and Heroes, I also watch a little of American Idol
Q8: What got you interested in poltics in the 1st place?
A8: When my dad made his first run for public office in 2001 I was 10 years old, I learned alot about Politics and how it works. I enjoyed so much and I guess it stuck with me.
Q9: What led you to decide to create your blog, Politics One?
A9: Well for two reasons, 1. I enjoyed Politics and telling people about it, I thought by starting a blog what better way to do so. 2. I heard the cry for a Bi-Partisan Report in Politics, people want to hear the positive, negative, and inside scoop from all the parties and candidates. That's something major news coverages won't do.
Q10: What has been the reaction to it from your readers?
A10: I have had a HUGE Positive Response from thousands of readers. I have only had two negative people so far both upset at me being involved in Politics at such a young age.
Q11: What has been the reaction from Candidates?
A11: Every Candidate I have contacted has contacted me back. It has been an honour to talk to the variety of Candidates. My goal is to get other well known Politicians on the show.
A12: Oh yes!! I have gotten to talk with many other Politicians and Party Leaders and have been able to get the "inside story" on many HOT Topics that most would not have heard. I recently did an article about how a Minor Democrat announced his run for President yet cannot do so because he was born in another country. Its pretty cool actually.
Q13: You also have a talk show on Blog Talk Radio. What led you to decide to do that?
A13: Sometimes It's hard for my viewers and myself to express themselves through writing, its better just to do it in voice conversation. A friend I met through Politics told me about Blog Talk Radio and I got interested right away. Since then I have been featured as a Special Host and am even on the Site's Recomended Shows.
Q14: I know that you are trying to get as many of the candidates from all of the parties that you can. What has been the response so far?
A14: I would say about 95% of the Candidates I contact agree to come on to the Show for an Interview or plug in. Its been a blessing.
Q15: Who is (are) the candiate(s) you haven't heard from that you would most like to get?
A15: I would love to get Candidates like Giuliani, McCain, Clinton, Obama, and Edwards
Q16: Are there any other figures like President Bush, VP Cheney, Nancy Pelosi that you have tried to get on the show?
A16: I am working with 4 well known Politicians to try and get them on the show, they are RNC Chair Martinez, TN US Senator Bob Corker (R), Fmr. US Senator and Presidential Candidate Mike Gravel (D) and US Senator Chris Dodd (D)
Q17: What has been the listener reaction?
A17: Amazing, many call ins and questions. I had 1,800 listeners a couple of weeks ago. It was my best show yet.
Q18: When you finish HS what are your plans, college, job etc?
A18: I plan on getting a degree in Political Science, and if not run for office at least continue in Political Communication.
Q19: What about politics, your blog etc, will you continue them?
A19: Absolutely. I enjoy it to much to quit.
Q20: What do you see as the key issues in the 2008 Presidential election?
A20: Most of my viewers seem to be concerned about our National Security and Imiigration. I would have to agree with them.
Q21: Any predictions?
A21: Yes, don't be surprised if a Democrat or Republican does not win the Presidency in 2008
Q22: Is there anything else you would like to add?
A22: I want to say thanks very much for allowing me to express my answers with you and your viewers. I encourage them to check out my blog at www.politicsone.blogspot.com where they can catch up on the inside stories and also vote on polls. Also add me on myspace and facebook if they'd like www.myspace.com/politicsone http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=593806700 And also catch my shows which air LIVE every Tuesday and Thursday Night at 7:00 PM EST.
