Greek Polytonic Keyboard for iPad

I learned that I need to clarify an entry that I had made last September. I failed to mention that use of the Greek polytonic keyboard for the iPad requires an external keyboard. The keyboard I use and highly recommend is the ZAGGfolio with keyboard. Occasionally I do use my iPad strictly as a tablet, but when I want to type a note of any significant length, I invariably use my ZAGGfolio keyboard. With a touch of the World key I change alphabets and begin to type in another language. To return to English, I touch the World key button to toggle back to English.

Oh, I should also mention that since the new iPad has the same dimensions as the iPad 2, the ZAGGfolio also works for it. Find it here.

Sowell on President Obama's Blather about the Supreme Court

Thomas Sowell, brilliant as always, and right.

Political Word Games

One of the highly developed talents of President Barack Obama is the ability to say things that are demonstrably false, and make them sound not only plausible but inspiring.

That talent was displayed just this week when he was asked whether he thought the Supreme Court would uphold ObamaCare as constitutional or strike it down as unconstitutional.

The Inevitable Consequences of Redistribution of Wealth in the Equal Distribution of Misery

This was published in 1949. I checked it out with Snopes. It appears quite authentic.

It makes the point quite effectively that it really takes little mental power to be able to project what will come to pass once a nation sets its foot on...
the path to Welfare Statism. But it hurts many folks' heads too much to give even a modicum of thought to the entirely natural and inevitable unintended consequences of government enforced redistribution of wealth. The inevitable consequences of redistribution of wealth is the equal distribution of misery, of sorrow, and of poverty.

President Obama's Mandate Assaults Freedom of Conscience for All Americans, Not Just for Catholics

Because I am a professor at a private Christian college I have done my own research whether President Obama's mandate concerning birth control and abortifacient pills affects our college and sister colleges (CCCU institutions). Many of my colleagues in the college where I teach and in sister colleges may not be aware that President Obama's birth control and abortifacient mandate affects all Christian colleges, not just Catholic colleges, universities, and social service agencies. Do not accept the media's portrayal of this as a "Catholic thing." It is not so. It affects all Christian colleges, universities, and social service agencies, Catholic or Protestant.

Here is a link that makes this crucial point that President Obama's mandate is not just an anti-"Catholic thing."

 

More than 100 Catholic bishops and institutions across the nation have issued statements denouncing the Obama administration's national requirement to include contraception in employees' health benefits. The Affordable Care Act mandates faith-based employers offer employees’ health coverage that inc...


The Obama administration is facing yet another lawsuit related to the controvers...ial mandate President Barack Obama put in place that requires religious employers to pay for coverage for birth control and drugs that may cause abortions.
