Think Freely Media presents Common Sense with Paul Jacob


Ireland, Canada, United Kingdom, United States and other nations celebrate Halloween on October 31.

The word Halloween or Hallowe’en dates to about 1745 and is of Christian origin, meaning “hallowed evening” or “holy evening.” It comes from a Scottish term for All Hallows’ Eve (the evening before All Hallows’ Day). In Scots, the word “eve” is “even,” and this is contracted to “e’en” or “een.” Over time, (All) Hallow(s) E(v)en shortened into Halloween.

It is one of those darker-themed celebrations, often conjuring up images of death and horror. As if in keeping with this theme, Josef Stalin’s body was removed from Lenin’s Tomb on October 31, 1961.

To acknowledge a horrifying possibility, Common Sense marks the occasion with images of the two major-party candidates for the presidency, both seeking votes in early November. One of these will (likely) become president!

    No reason now to be so pessimistic. Everyday smart people are awakening to two he the astounding idea there are more than two deeply flawed and incompetent people the R’s and D’s put forth. Best of the others is the very good choice of Johnson and Weld. Successful no scandal baggage, .two term Governors with . intelligence and HONESTY.
    We must get out of the R or D Box. There is absolutely no reason now they cannot win. It is a only a fear of 9actually a small) change and courage to think for ones self. The mantra of “they cannot win” that needs countering.
