I recently rewatched The Grapes of Wrath and then reread the book. They are both great pieces of art. And the mild sense of hope at the end of the film really is a more palatable ending. The flood offers nothing but more despair. The adaptation really is perfect as well. I know Steinbeck loved it. Anyway, what do you think happens to Tom Joad? If Tom Joad is alive afterwhat is his future?
Am I the only who sees him becoming a conservative like most of his fellow ex-sharecropper migrants and voting for Goldwater in 64? Steinbeck makes a compelling case for Joad the populist man of the left.
I guess I am skeptical given what we know about post-war California and the rise of conservatism. Maybe Joad returns from the war, gets a job in the defense factories like so many of his family members and comrades from Oklahoma, and those racial attitudes take over.
Steady work and prosperity will do a lot to make someone forget the hard bad times that make them do crazy things. So if we are playing the odds, I think we have to say that Joad votes Goldwater.

John Temple was appointed surveyor-general of Customs in His father Robert was a British army officer and his mother, Mehitabel Nelson, the daughter of a New York merchant; the families of both parents connected Temple to the British aristocracy. To an English-born official such as FB, however, Temple appeared altogether too close to the Americans when in he married the daughter of Boston merchant James Bowdoin.
Inhe returned to America as the British consul—general to the United States and a year later became the eighth baron Temple.

JOHN TEMPLE’S COMPLAINTS, 1764-65
Interim Concord Fire Chief Guy Newbury reported a patient from the home was transported to the hospital twice and someone in. The city announced a few days later that the test results revealed the patient were not infected with COVID and all nine firefighters were cleared to leave home after being quarantined and return to duty. However, the recent scare quickly resulted in a change of department policy even when a patient is not suspected of COVID Testing will take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8am to.
Testing will be for symptomatic patients, by appointment only. To schedule an appointment, please contact the Florida Department of Health in Marion County at First responders are always deemed essential personnel in times of trouble, but the spread of the virus has brought with it added safety precautions.
All meetings and drills are canceled. The door is locked unless there is a call. Apparatus used is cleaned thoroughly, including a bleach spray for the inside of the trucks, and tools are checked to be in working order, used only in an emergency.
New Milford, much like other communities, has taken to social media and its own website to let people know what steps they can take if there is an alarm. Residents are asked to put signs on front doors if someone inside is infected with the virus. Residents are also being asked to inform dispatchers when calling for an emergency. Dispatchers across the area have been instructed to relay virus information, providing a code over the radio to firefighters.
The code, which may vary from town to town, is confidential to the public, so as to not worry other citizens who may be listening to dispatches.
Fire companies have Tyvek suits and goggles that can be worn instead of the usual turnout gear. Standard firefighting gear is swapped out when possible in a situation. Despite regular gear being cleaned often to remove hazards absorbed into the materials, the suits provide a safer alternative to first responders in this situation.Glad I waited.

And we get Nailed for Water Boarding?? Wednesday, December 19, Around the world, armed citizens have grown desperate due to the increase of violent acts performed by criminal organizations.
Armed resistance groups have sprung up in places where formal security forces are absent or inadequate, often with the approval and support of governments. Despite their noble intentions, these armed groups potentially pose a challenge to the authority and legitimacy of the state. In some cases where armed groups have operated without oversight, they have killed wantonly, displaced thousands from their lands, or themselves taken up criminal activities.
Latin America has been bruised by experiences where quasi-military forces proclaim themselves as defenders of society against attacks from criminal organizations and guards of public security. The replacement of power and security responsibilities from the state to armed civilians signals an absence of the state or inconsistence in its actions in combatting criminal organizations.
Currently, many of these Latin American warlords are leaders of criminal groups who are effectively organized as entrepreneurs, producers and illicit traffickers and, in many cases, they lead their illegally armed squads to perform private violence for their own economic goals.
The 20th century history of Latin America was remarkable due to the emergence of socialist insurgent groups. It was during when many governments sought fast and efficient solutions: in other words to eliminate these socialist insurgent groups. All of these quasi-military forces have been portrayed as death squads. They performed a function that the armed forces could not do. These paramilitary groups were frequently comprised of ex-soldiers who acted in the shadow of these governments.
In the 21st century, the insecurity problems not only persist, but have in effect deepened. Also, their armed activities are not politically motivated, but instead motivated by economic goals.
A willingness to defend citizens has become a root cause for the emergence of two different types of armed parties. Thus, security control has been relocated, on one side, to self-defense forces, and, on the other side, to criminal organizations. Interestingly, both illegally armed forces proclaim themselves as protectors of vulnerable community residents against the rival armed group mostly because the state authority is unable to provide security on the streets—a basic assurance that governments are obligated to provide their citizens.
Hidden Power of the Mexican Extralegal Forces. Mexico effectively underwent a process of Balkanization committed by illegally armed groups. On the one hand, drug cartels fought for control over the territory. On the other hand, self-defense groups protected their territory against organized crime. Although the government claims to have control over the insecurity taking place on the streets, the number of murders, extortions, kidnappings and other sophisticated criminal attacks on people and their property has increased exponentially, terrifying people.
As a result, the authority and law of the state has completely disappeared. Therefore, the control of security has shifted from the state authority to the newly emerged illegally armed groups that assure residents that they in fact are the real guardians of order and peace on the streets.
Sinceself-defense forces have been emerging as a response to the anarchy and insecurity. Illegally armed groups proclaim themselves as protectors of residents of localities against organized crime activities. Frequently, these armed groups do not represent a local community government, nor do they receive money for their services. Rather, they are people chosen to conduct violence against the illicit traffickers.
Such armed units are very difficult to sustain due to inadequate resources. Where they are not defeated by the government, they often end up cooperating with other armed groups and getting drawn into conflict. They frequently act under the approbation and support of society.
All of these resources have attracted criminal organizations to occupy these regions and extort their residents and farmers. This group was formed in In this scenario other criminal organizations with a similar social background emerged.The following is a state of the facts relative to the Importations at the Port of Salem under the false Clearances from Anguilla, with M r Cockles and Governor Bernards proceedings in that affair.
By this proceedure of M r Cockles the whole Sum Compounded for amounting to twenty five hundred pounds Sterling will be shared between him Governor Bernard and this Province, and his Majesty, if the Composition is allowed, will lose upwards of five thousand pounds Sterling of his Revenue, besides the Losses which might probably be occasioned by their keeping an Affair of so extraordinary a Nature so long a Secret from Me, and then divulging it in such a manner as to give the alarm publickly and thereby afford an Opportunity for any Vessels under like Circumstances of which there were many in the several ports of my district to Escape before I could give Intelligence to the Cruizers appointed to protect the Trade, to be on their Guard, and take the other necessary measures to prevent it.
Is the before mentioned Composition so Binding that no Steps can now be taken in that case to recover the Duties upon those Goods so Imported, either of the Importers, or Prosecutors who Compounded the affair: and if it is not so Binding, in what manner, and of whom are said Duties to be recovered?
I have taken the Liberty in the course of the foregoing Narration to suggest such thoughts as Occurred to me on the Affair, and which I imagined might deserve Consideration: If I am wrong in my Opinion, I shall have the Pleasure of being corrected and set right by your directions.
The Answer of James Cockle Esq r. The Charge Consists of 4 Articles, 3 of which relate to my prosecution of the Molosses and Sugar imported Under pretended Clearances from Anguilla which I understand to be the Chief occasion of my Suspension; I shall therefore treat of them first, and Reserve the Article which I consider to be Supplimental for the last.
The Charge will then stand thus. To the First Article I shall first give the plain Narrative of the Affair and then make such Observations thereupon as may be thought Necessary: for my Defence.
At First I thought that this Letter was a trap laid for me to engage me in an Unwarrantable prosecution[. I went to Boston on Wednesday and showed the Letter to the Governor expressing my Suspision of its being, an Imposition, he said that it might be easily known wither it was so or no; for if the Letter was true, there must be in the Office both true and false Clearances, And that Certainly some difference would be found between one and the other, whereas if there was no difference between the Clearances, the truth of the Letter would be Suspisious, He therefore directed me to return and fetch all the Clearances from Anguilla in my Office[.
The difficulty of proving the Falsity of the Clearance was next considered It was almost Certain that no Letters directed to the Collector of Anguilla would come to his hands; as they must be sent by Trading ships, and the Subject of them must be known.
The Governor upon that consideration offered to Inclose my Letters to the Collector of Anguilla in Covers to Governor Thomas of Antigua: and to write to Governor Thomas to desire that he would assist the Collector of Anguilla to disprove the false Clearances and Certifie the proofs under the Great Seal and Inclose them in Covers to him: 5 The Governor Added that if this was to be done there was no time to be lost, for that he was to Sail on Monday morning: for the Eastern parts of the Province: therefore if I Proposed to accept of this Offer I must go with him to Castle William that Evening and get the Letters done the next day.
Soon after he ordered me immediately to Salem, and told me if I departed two miles without his written order he would Instantly Suspend me, D Having carried my Narrative as far as is Necessary for the first, article, I will proceed to make some Observations upon it.
I fear the Chief part of the Offence I have given in regard to this, my informing the Governor of this discovery and taking his direction concerning the prosecution of it before I informed the Surveyor General. As the prosecution was upon an Act which gave the Kings third to the Use of the Province, the Governor was doubly concerned in it, both for his own share and for the Right of the Province: The Kings Custom House revenues were not interestd in it: so that the Surveyor General had no Authority over the Forfeiture or any Part of it: I did my Duty to the best of my Knowledge and with the Advice of the Kings Advocate, whom it is my business to consult upon such occasions, If I have failed in any thing it is rather in Ceremonials than in real business: for I am not Charged with prosecuting upon a Wrong Act, unless such Charge is insinuated in the second Article which I will next consider.
The second Article Charges me with entering into a Composition for the Duties of near hogsheads of Molasses. By the 6 of Geo: II when foreign Molosses are Landed before Duties paid, they or the Value thereof become immediatly forfeited, One third part to the King for the Support of the Province, one third part to the Governor, And one third to any Person whatsoever who shall sue for the same. Suppose after the Act of Forfeiture was Committed, the Merchants had paid their Duties, would that have secured them from the forfeiture?
Which Latter it would not be in my power to have prevented, if they would have complied with the former. When the Governor went to the Eastward which was three days after filing the Libells, apprehending whilst he was absent, application would be made for a Composition he left a power with the Advocate General to Consent for him for a Composition provided it was not less than 6d. I was still dissatisfied and altho the Custom House revenues were not interested in the Composition, I was desirous of having the Surveyor Generals approbation of it: He was out of Town; at no great distance but on the other side of the water.
The Business was kept open two days during which time I went and also sent to the Surveyors house to know if he was come home, which he not doing I wrote to him and sent my Servant over with the Letter 8 informing him wrote to him of the proposal and hoped it would meet his approbation my Servant returned with a Verbal answer that it was very well L after which the Business was finally concluded. This is the whole truth.
In short I am Guilty of having conducted a prosecution according to the Advice of the Kings Advocate, with diffidence to my own Opinion, Conformably to Law and against my own Interest.
The third article, is for the Insult offered the Surveyor General in the tender of a Bribe to pass over such my proceedings without punishment. And here I shall have Matter to confess and appologize for, as Well as to vindicate and Defend. I had made an extraordinary discovery of a Kind of Fraud in which a great number of Traders were involved; I immediatly took the most Effectual means to prosecute them with Effect; but in the urgency of the business I was Guilty of an Act of disrespect to the Surveyor General in not informing him of this Discovery so soon as the Governor.
