QUO VADIS, COUSIN SAM?

this page updated 5 January, A.U.C. 2769  [A.D. 2016]


Route 132, Candiac, Quebec, Canada
     The initial focus of this blog is the area of Eastern Washington encompassing the northern parts of the Big Bend Country and Northern Washington; and the people who have lived in the area; and particularly the ascendants and descendants of Thomas Brownfield Seaton (1843-1920),  Louis Joliet (1645-1700), Thomas-Jacques Taschereau (1680-1749), Maria Jane Beamish (1819-1889), Eleonore de Grandmaison (1620-1692), Andreas Peterson Longacre (1657-1718), and Col. George Eskridge (1660-1735), and many other direct ancestors; and James Alexander (1749-1835), Samuel C. Rinker (1844-1912), and Jasper Burton Norman (1892-1956), who are related, and many others to whom I am connected, and who explored and settled a continent and helped to build two great nations.  My extended family tree includes the Lee family of Virginia and all 44 presidents.  As this work progresses other parts of the United States and Canada will come into focus, including Cass County, Missouri; Pembina, North Dakota; Northern Virginia; and Quebec, to name a few.  I will also be following some lines of history back into Europe, including one line to 4th century Saxony.

      "People will not look forward to posterity who never look backward to their ancestors." - Edmund Burke in Reflections on the Revolution in France, 1793.

      "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." - George Santayana in Reason in Common Sense, 1905.

      "Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it." - Attributed to George Santayana (1863-1952)


      This post is set to remain at the top of the blog as a home page, with a general table of contents and other information.  (Quo Vadis means "where are you going.")

COUSIN SAM'S LIBRARY
On July 12, 2011, I opened this blog as a reference library for much of the source material related to research for my other blogs, as well as other material, such as collections of quotations, web links, Archive links, and such, so that I can keep the  focus of this blog on family and place.

COUSIN SAM'S FAITH
On July 13, 2011, I opened this blog on religion, politics, and opinion, which are matters of faith, with faith being understood as not merely believing, but what we believe and why.  These subjects are not well suited for inclusion in my other blogs, which are concerned with who, what, when, and where. This blog is about the fifth "w", why.

Retired bishop of Caledonia leaves Anglican Church of Canada for breakaway group
William Anderson, who retired as bishop of Caledonia at the end of 2016, has confirmed that he recently left the Anglican Church of Canada to join the Anglican Network in Canada (ANiC), a breakaway grouping of theologically conservative churches. “Last week, I transferred,” Anderson said Wednesday, November 22, adding that he had had “ongoing concerns for a long time about the direction things have been going in the Anglican Church of Canada,” but that the overturning of the Rev. Jacob Worley’s election as bishop last May, followed by his firing this November, together served as “the final straw.”

Former Secret Service Agent Threatens To Reveal Details About Bill Clinton And Epstein's "Lolita Express"
In a furious twitter exchange with a Clinton aide on Friday, former secret service agent Dan Bongino threatened to reveal new details about Bill Clinton’s 26 documented trips aboard notorious pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s private jet, nicknamed the “Lolita Express." Bongino and former Hillary Clinton aide Nick Merrill started feuding after Merrill challenged Bongino’s claim that Clinton was the most “manipulative political person in a position of power [he had] ever met in my entire life,” as Paul Watson pointed out.

Protecting Consumers from Fraud and Abuse
Following Richard Cordray’s resignation as director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), the smart money is betting that President Trump will appoint Mick Mulvaney, head of the Office of Management and Budget, as acting director until a permanent replacement can be found. This would be a good move, as Director Mulvaney is known for his no-nonsense approach — and there is a lot of nonsense to be sorted out at the CFPB.

New sanctions are about to bite, and Russia’s elite are spooked
The personal sanctions against regime cronies are especially tough. LAST January, shortly after Donald Trump was sworn in as America’s president, telephones started to ring in several Senate offices. The White House, staffers learned, was drafting an executive order to lift some of the sanctions imposed on Russia in response to its war against Ukraine in 2014. “We were horrified. Everyone was calling each other and we soon realised that all heard the same thing,” one recalls. ... The result was the Counter America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA, which also includes measures against Iran and North Korea), the only piece of legislation to be almost unanimously supported by both parties in Congress. Passed by 419-3 in the House and 98-2 in the Senate, it left Mr Trump with no choice but to sign or have his veto overridden.

From inboxing to thought showers: how business bullshit took over
Vacuous management-speak is easily laughed off – but is there a real cost to talking rubbish? If we hope to improve organisational life – and the wider impact that organisations have on our society – then a good place to start is by reducing the amount of bullshit our organisations produce. Business bullshit allows us to blather on without saying anything. It empties out language and makes us less able to think clearly and soberly about the real issues. As we find our words become increasingly meaningless, we begin to feel a sense of powerlessness. We start to feel there is little we can do apart from play along, benefit from the game and have the occasional laugh.

British choirs aren't the best – but they could be with better support
Foreign ensembles benefit from more funding and public interest – and the proof is in their singing. Until we treat choirs as well as we treat orchestras, we’ll suffer on the international stage, says conductor Peter Phillips.

Bulldozing Peaceful Valley to save the Spokane River
Even in the swing of Expo ’74, with its international visitors and complete transformation of downtown Spokane, with the removal of the rails and unmasking of the Spokane River, even then planners had bold new ideas for old parts of town. But how do you follow a World’s Fair? One idea was to completely bulldoze a neighborhood of poor old people to make way for “harmonious clusters of apartments.”

Archbishop of Canterbury and Patriarch of Moscow appeal for Middle East Christians
Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby and Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia have spoken out in support of Christians in the Middle East. Welby was in Moscow for a three-day visit, during which he formally presented and introduced the new chaplain to St Andrew’s Anglican Church in Moscow, the Rev. Malcolm Rogers, to the Patriarch as the Archbishop’s Apokrisiarios, or representative. In a joint statement, issued after their meeting, the Archbishop and Patriarch appealed to the international community to “render speedy help to support the Christian and other populations of the Middle East.”

Did you hear the one about private jets getting a special break in the Senate tax package? This one has it all: rich folks, privilege, a Republican bill, a Senate Democrat who once pushed the measure and a Republican who may get it over the finish line -- both of them from Ohio. There's outrage on the left and the right. There's just one problem. Much of what you may have heard about the jet provision is wrong.

Dare to DREAM? Congress Shouldn’t Let Dreamers Shut Down Budget
It happens so often, it almost seems normal. Once more, per Politico, we may find ourselves on the brink of a government shut down. Various issues have triggered this fanfare in the past. This time, the wedge issue is DREAMers. House conservatives have warned Speaker Paul Ryan against lumping a fix for undocumented immigrants who came to the country as minors into a year-end spending deal. Conservatives aren’t the only ones holding up proceedings, however. Many liberals have also pledged not to support a bill that doesn’t address the DREAMer issue. While no one wants to take the blame for a shut down, no one wants to upset their grassroots base, either.

Nothing is really Caesar’s
In our local newspaper there was a recent article about the health-insurance debate — who must cover certain things and who can opt out. One remark stuck out to me. Someone complained that by not paying for certain services, employers would be “imposing their religious beliefs” on their employees. Now that may be true, and it may be problematic, but what bothers me about the statement is its complete lack of self-awareness. Religion, for this person, is something that only other people do. Those people. It doesn’t occur to her that her beliefs might be considered religious, or that she might be imposing her beliefs on someone else. Calling something religious is a way to separate oneself from other people, a way to excuse oneself form the responsibility of conversation.

Are Women Really Victims? Four Women Weigh In
Women can be victims. In this world, there are violent, exploitative people willing to use and abuse their fellow human beings. Sometimes those human beings are women and sometimes they are abused and sexually exploited by powerful men because they are women. But women are not a class of victims.

Explore Seattle’s romantic — and vanishing — historic moviehouses
All of us go to the movies to feel something: to laugh, to cry, to be frightened, to be thrilled, to lose ourselves in a story. And that experience might feel just the littlest bit richer in a place with a story of its own, a place that holds some history.
