A complete history of presidential visits at National Jamborees (from a scouting blog)

Visits from the president are a Jamboree tradition.

Seven of 11 sitting U.S. presidents who were in office at the time of a National Jamboree showed up in person to address giant crowds of Scouts.

Itís a tradition that dates back to the very first Jamboree. President Franklin D. Roosevelt visited the 1937 National Jamboree in grand style. He posed for photographs, awarded an Eagle badge and had his touring car swarmed by well-wishing Scouts.

Since then, many sitting presidents have stopped by the National Jamboree, arriving by car, train or helicopter to meet Scouts and share their thoughts about Scouting.

Here are those stories.

The first woman to start a bank a black woman finally gets her due in the Confederacys capital

Maggie L. Walker started a newspaper. She was the first countryís first woman to found a bank. She was a humanitarian, a teacher, an icon of her community in 1920s Richmond.

She was also the daughter of a former slave.

Walkerís accomplishments in the face of racial oppression and segregation have never been honored in her hometown in the same way as the Confederate leaders whose statues are the focal point of downtown Richmond.

But on Saturday, 153 years to the day she was born in the former capital of the Confederacy, Walker will get her own monument, a towering statue of her as she lived ó her glasses pinned to her lapel, a checkbook in hand.

As Maddow and Lawrence report on the use of Russian Propoganda on websites, I remember

here on DU how much Sputnik News and RT was promoted. Here's some examples of what the Russians were doing:

(Note to members of the Frequent Alerter Association: This isn't a call out since the propaganda promoter was banned and it isn't re-fighting the primaries since no candidate is mentioned.)

Time to put Trumpy's ugly mug on some milk cartons, he's

Been missing in action since his disastrous G20 trip.

Heard a public service announcement on the radio this morning, and it featured Pres Obama talking

about parenting or fatherhood, but the kicker is: It was sponsored by HHS.

Trumpys going to have conniptions!

If you are in SC or GA, GOTV. Ignore the naysayers prediciting GOP wins, our party will win when

everyone votes.

GOTV

Voted at 6:45 this morning in No. VA. No one else was there, was voter 42.

Voted for Northam and Fairfax.

Gille$pie and the Braddock Democrats both had reps outside.

So, how do we make the deplorables realize the US is now 197

Thanks to Trumpy's ignorant actions?
I'll put us before Syria.

Hey it's green party celebration day! They got their wish

Burn it all down, that'll show everyone..



Take a bow green party shitheads.

Treason! Impeach them all.
