Rudi Giuliani sticks his foot in his mouth again

*** begin quote ***

I have followed Rudi Giuliani’s political career since he and I were students at Manhattan College in New York City in the 1960s. Giuliani was a year ahead of me but he was a big man on campus and our path crossed frequently, both in class and out.

But Rudi Giuliani has a long history of saying stupid things, and Wednesday night he stuck his foot in mouth again and started chewing shoe leather big time.

*** and ***

Giuliani said this at that Republican dinner, “I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the President loves America, doesn’t love you. And he doesn’t love me. He wasn’t brought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up through love of this country.”

Where Giuliani got the idea the President Obama doesn’t love his country is beyond me, and beyond reason.

EDITORIALIZING

I can NOT let this go by.

I became a non-fan of Rudy when he became pro-choice to get elected. Divorces, several. Cheating on spouses, often. And, then taking on Ron Paul about blowback — which sunk Rudy’s political ship — as if he’d never heard of the concept. And, for long long while, he was “the ONLY Manhattan College alumni” you ever heard about. Argh!

That being said, I would point out to him and others that we can never know what is in any man’s heart. I wouldn’t judge any man by anything other than his actions. (“by their fruits, you shall know them”?)

I can understand Rudy’s frustration. It certainly does seem that BHO puts the USA down at every opportunity. And, his sense of “optics” gives the impression that he is a “trivial person”. I think his eight years have been a disaster for the USA, the world, and the black minority population that invested all their hopes in him.

I’m not sure that any politician can / could have / will set the USA back on the correct track. I don’t think the D’s or the R’s understand the terrible “slave collar” we have put on future generations with an 18T$ debt, grazillions in unfunded liabilities, and complete demoralization / debauching / demotivation of the economic engine that was once the USA. 

All that being said, both Rudy and the Author seem to have forgotten some of the key lessons of Alma Mater — intellectual honesty, mutual respect, and charity. 

I’ll leave it at that.

The Malignos of Annadale: And they lived happily ever after the Monster Mash Dance

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — Last week I put out a call for unique love stories — and you delivered. Now, while we’re still in a romantic, Valentine’s Day frame of mind, I’ll start publishing my findings.

Up first: Mr. and Mrs. Maligno of Annadale.

Dr. Vincent Maligno first crossed paths with Amelia Mignone back in 1962 at a Monster Mash Dance staged at Xaverian High School, the Brooklyn all-boys school where he was a student.

You see, Amelia was his sister’s classmate and she attended Fontbonne Hall Academy, an all girls school also in Brooklyn.

*** and ***

Vincent officially proposed marriage to Amelia by placing an ad in the Arnold Air Society Military Journal on Dec. 8, 1967, on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. The couple became engaged before of all Vincent’s Air Force ROTC cadet classmates. It was a total surprise, inasmuch as Amelia thought she was getting a ring as a Christmas gift.

Since the couple became reacquainted on June 23, which is also the day Vincent was baptized in 1946 and graduated high school in 1963, they were married June 23, 1968, while Vincent was a junior in Manhattan College and Amelia a sophomore at St. John’s University.

As Operations Group commander, Coppinger is in charge of the 141st Air Refueling Squadron, the 150th Special Operations Squadron, the 204th Intelligence Squadron and the 108th Operations Support Squadron.

“Every day when we come into work, we have to realize that people are looking to us, looking at how we handle things and they are learning,” said Coppinger.

Coppinger received a bachelor of engineering in electrical engineering from Manhattan College, N.Y. Upon being commissioned as a second lieutenant through the Reserve Officer Training Corps program,Coppinger attended pilot training at Laughlin Air Force Base, Texas.
