"Never fear your enemy but always respect them." -- John Basilone
And I heard the voice of the Lord saying,
Whom shall I send,
and who will go for us?
And I said,
Here am I; send me..
Background scene for Isaiah 6:8. In the vision, as Isaiah approaches, he sees G-d and an angel.
The angel has 3 pairs of wings, the upper pair covering the angel's face, the
lower pair covering the angel's feet, and using the middle pair to hover in
G-d's midst. Remember that angels have no soul, and have no temptation, and are
somewhat independent extensions of G-d's glory. As Isaiah approaches, he sees G-d, thinking
& speaking somewhat to himself, and then thinking out loud. G-d makes the first statement "Whom shall I send," almost as if
the angel is not present, almost as if the angel is part of G-d, and almost as
if G-d is thinking out loud.
The second statement "and who will go for us?" seems to include the angel and other beings as part of his group, and might even be including mankind as the other element of "us." Isaiah then speaks. Normal, non-humble conversation would have had Isaiah speaking with himself, "I" in the subject position at the first portion of the sentence. The subject position is normally a declaration with what follows as the "new information" in the declaration, positive assertion, etc. of the speaker. This does not occur in Isaiah 6:8. Nor does the objective case "me" occur. "Here am I" maintains "I" as the subject, but the declaration starts with "here" and has the "equals connector " "am" linking the new information "I" at the end of the sentence. It is the only way (In English) to humbly grammatically announce one's presence. One would not address G-d beginning with the word "I." The last line "send me" is also not perfect for humble English as it can be interpreted as a command rather than a humble indication of volunteerism.
See below that the Russian translation has a more proper humble structure. (1) Мне in the verse is almost like a Japanese topic marker "は" "As to me," as in "As to me." The "кого" "of who" and the dictionary case of "to send" shows G-d's thinking "of who, as to me, to send?" The English "shall" is too strong for this first thought. "Who to send" is a better introductory thought. Not so strong as "I will send who?," since the term "as to me" makes a more pensive questioning of who would be right "as to me."
Next, the "who goes for us" is clearly equivalent translation. This sentence is stronger, but relates to "us" and is therefore more inclusive and "group suggestive." It indicates direct strength, but in the way of consensus. The sentence structure has switched from a singular G-d wondering what would be appropriate, to a group importance of "who goes for us." Isaiah then states "And I said" as to relate the vision in the past tense with the conversation having occurred in the past.
In the line related to be said to G-d from Isaiah, the "Here am I" is accomplished in Russian with two words that lack the more arrogant mandated link. The two words are вот "here " and Я "I". "Here I" can be thought of in English as "I, here." The connection is appropriately weak, lacking the more arrogant pronouncement that would be similar to "I say to you that I AM here." So Russian treats the location sentence with more deference due to its simplicity and economy of words. Russian also has a penchant, greater than in English, to place the "new information" at the end of a sentence. The "Here I" is not only humble, it lacks the arrogant connector "am", and places the new information "here in your presence is I" at the end of the sentence.
The last two words "пошли меня" includes the perfective aspect of urging to send, but does NOT translate as a command. Yandex translates "пошли" as "Let's go." It is almost as a suggestion to get going, but less of a robot send and more of an "I propose to act "of/with" you in future." The last word "меня" is accusative/genitive "as to me"/"of me". (accusative/genitive Series меня - тебя - (н)его - (н)её - нас - вас - (н)их) almost similar to the Japanese-like topic marker "は" mentioned above. Putting it together it might be said to translate as "as to me, let(s) send," a verbose, humble, and very non commanding way to emphasize the putative permission being suggested. This is a far better grammatical structure than the English "send me" which is a more harsh "command" without the use of modifying prepositional softening words such as "please" "is it possible to" and "may I be sent", etc.
"The great virtue of a free market system is that it does not care what color people are; it does not care what their religion is; it only cares whether they can produce something you want to buy. It is the most effective system we have discovered to enable people who hate one another to deal with one another and help one another" -- Milton Friedman

"There are persons
who constantly clamor. They complain of oppression, speculation, and pernicious
influence of wealth. They cry out loudly against all banks and corporations, and

institutions. They would choke the fountain of industry and dry all streams".

“And how can man die
better Than facing fearful odds, For the ashes of his fathers, And the temples
of his gods,?”
Thomas Babington Macaulay, Lays of Ancient Rome
This royal throne of kings, this sceptered isle,
This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars,
This other eden, demi-paradise,
This fortress built by nature for herself
Against infection and the hand of war,
This happy breed of men, this little world,
This prescious stone set in the silver sea,
Which serves it in the office of a wall
Or as a moat defensive to a house,
Against the envy of less happier lands,
This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England...

God save our gracious Queen; Long live our noble Queen; God
save the Queen!
Send her victorious; Happy and glorious; Long to reign over us; God save the Queen!
O Lord our God arise; Scatter her enemies; And make them
Confound their politics; Frustrate their knavish tricks; On Thee our hopes we fix; God save us all!
Thy choicest gifts in store; On her be pleased to pour; Long may she reign;
May she defend our laws; And ever give us cause; To sing with heart and voice; God save the Queen!
Not in this land alone; But be God's mercies known; From
shore to shore!
Lord make the nations see; That men should brothers be; And form one family; The wide world over.
From every latent foe; From the assassins blow; God save the Queen!
O'er her thine arm extend; For Britain's sake defend; Our mother, prince, and friend; God save the Queen!
Lord grant that Marshal Wade; May by thy mighty aid; Victory bring;
May he sedition hush; And like a torrent rush; Rebellious Scots to crush; God save the King!
My Rifle: The Creed of a US Marine
by Major General William H. Rupertus (USMC, Ret.)
This is my rifle. There are many like it, but
this one is mine.
My rifle is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life.
My rifle, without me, is useless. Without my rifle, I am useless. I must fire my rifle true. I must shoot straighter than my enemy who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will...
My rifle and myself know that what counts in this war is not the rounds we fire, the noise of our burst, nor the smoke we make. We know that it is the hits that count. We will hit...
My rifle is human, even as I, because it is my life. Thus, I will learn it as a brother. I will learn its weaknesses, its strength, its parts, its accessories, its sights and its barrel. I will ever guard it against the ravages of weather and damage as I will ever guard my legs, my arms, my eyes and my heart against damage. I will keep my rifle clean and ready. We will become part of each other. We will...
Before God, I swear this creed. My rifle and myself are the defenders of my country. We are the masters of our enemy. We are the saviors of my life.
So be it, until victory is America's and there is no enemy, but peace!
“What a man truly wants, he must dream about, think
about, tell about and do"
"I, ..., do hereby swear, before the Great
and Living God, that during my engagement, and while I am an employee of
Russell, Majors, and Waddell, I will, under no circumstances, use profane
language, that I will drink no intoxicating liquors, that I will not quarrel or
fight with any other employee of the firm, and that in every respect I will
conduct myself honestly, be faithful to my duties, and so direct all my acts as
to win the confidence of my employers, so help me God."

Twelve O'Clock High Dialogue:
Gen. Savage - "You liked Keith Davenport, a lot I mean."
Maj. Stovall - "Yes Sir, I thought he was one of the finest men I ever knew."
Gen. Savage - "Same way the boys felt, I'm sure. Loyalty is a fine thing. Well. Thanks for the coffee major."
Maj. Stovall - "General Savage, I'd like to tell you something else, I think. I'm a lawyer by trade. I think I'm a good one. And when a good lawyer takes on a client he does it because he believes in the client's case, and that's all that matters. When I came over to England, I took on my biggest client. That client is the 918th Bomb Group. -- I want to see my client win its case. Does that answer what you had in mind?"
Gen. Savage - "On the button."
Maj. Stovall - "What did you have in mind, exactly?"
Gen. Savage - "I need time, time before those transfers go through."
Maj. Stovall - "Um Hum, How much time?"
Gen. Savage - "As much time as we can get. 10 days anyway."
Maj. Stovall - "Well, it will take those squadron adjutants two days to draw up all those requests; And, lets see; I believe in thorough methodical work, everything in order; I've got a good deal of stuff on my desk here, so, it might be three days before I can get around to them."
Gen. Savage - "Thats five."
Maj. Stovall - "It'll take a couple of days to check them, that makes seven; Then those squadron adjutants are pretty sloppy sometimes, and I certaintly don't want this group criticized for sloppy paper work, do you general?"
Gen. Savage - "couldn't permit it."
Maj. Stovall - "So my guess is that every one of those requests may have to go back to the squadron adjutant to be done over. By the time I re-check them, It will be ten days anyway before they can be ready for signature."
Gen. Savage - "What a way to run an outfit. You red tape adjutants are all alike."
Maj. Stovall - "That's right sir."
"But Harvey, there could be trouble in this."
Maj. Stovall - "I don't think so sir, I've never heard of the jury convicting the lawyer."

It is the Marine, not the reporter, that has given us Freedom of the Press.

Goldwater I sometimes remember, that during the Presidential Campaign in
summer of 1964, as an 11 year old boy living in Macon, GA, I had the opportunity to hear
Goldwater's speech and shake his hand twice. We had just moved to 3300 Placid Place,
within a mile or two walking distance to Westgate Mall. I'd heard that the campaign
was coming to Westgate, and excited at the prospect of seeing my first campaign event, a
hastily ran and walked from my new home (we had just moved to that location during March
1963) to the front of Westgate Mall. I managed to sit about 20 feet from the
speaking stand and listened intently to the speech. As only of the very few very
young people there I caught the eye of Mrs. Goldwater and she smiled back at me several
times. I shook Goldwater's hand once after the speech, and then again in the
motorcade as it passed along Pio Nono Avenue in front of Macon Mall.
President Calvin Coolidge: On October 4, 1924, at the dedication of the Monument to the American Expeditionary Forces in Washington, D.C., President Calvin Coolidge stated: "They did not regard it as a national or personal opportunity for gain or fame or glory, but as a call to sacrifice for the support of humane principles and spiritual ideals... If anyone doubts the depth and sincerity of the attachment of the American people to their institutions and Nation, if anyone doubts the sacrifices which they have been willing to make in behalf of those institutions and for what they believe to be the welfare of other nations, let them gaze upon this monument and other like memorials that have been reared in every quarter of our broad land. Let them look upon the representative gatherings of our VETERANS, and let them remember that America has dedicated itself to the service of God and man. -Calvin Coolidge, Arlington Virginia, 4 October 1924
