Department Commander SMM
Started the meeting a 7 PM at 7:11 Held vote with no discussion with the 10 members present. The minutes from the previous month were not reviewed or approved while and I respectfully requested that the minutes be reviewed for the record with corrections. B.J. informed me that she was not going to allow the review and to get out. She also told me to go start a baseball team someplace else not with her post. I asked the each member in the room for the record to look up the word oppression for the record. . When I left the meeting to go to my car Jack lunged out the door after me and stood over me on the walk and kept peering into my car. I am not sure what his intentions were but his actions along with his email to me are very plain that he has been the investigative arm for the post and any and all actions he took will be explained to you from him not me. I don't have a beef with Jack and he is welcomed in my home as well as any other vet. I don't have time in my life for drama. I have a family to support and plan on using what I know to do so. I don't have to explain to you or anybody else in the world how the internet works. If you want to know how to connect end points spend thirty years of your life doing so. Once again. no beef with any post members and I plan on asking each one of the current membership to allow me to continue my service to our country.  This is my appeal to the members of the post to stop the oppression and allow all members to serve the community in which we live. I am not going to make any statements on the media source that are not factual and supported with real time data. I was asked by Bill last night if you have contacted me. I told him to the best of my knowledge no.  I also contacted a few or the sixth district folks to attend and they did not show up and of the members last provided me personal and confidential information that will provided to you at  later date. All in all the meeting went like I thought.  A group of people that came in as the settlers and took away what I pioneered, again.  I call it oppression.  What do you call it?
As of this post nobody from the Ohio District or HQ has contacted me.  I thought the Legion was - supposed to help people not hurt them?

John Zarlino Know as Coach "Z" in the community I serve.  My goal when I secureded this name space was to promulgate content not train other post members how what I do and how I do it. I certainly did nothing to deserve this treatment in public and private meetings.

I have been informed that I will not be able to serve until our district makes a decision in April 2013 from three guys that don't live in our community becuase of someone actions that have nothing to do with anything I wanted to do in the first place.  Start a baseball team in our town. 

I was told last night to go somewhere else and start a baseball team.  Why?  Once again oppression.  I was also told I need permission from the post to use the internet.  Oppression.  All users in the world should vote the internet as a nobel peace prize winner. .

Working Notes White Paper

Oppression - 5th largest site in the word. I read this in 1995 and for the past 12 years I have tried to explain this
process to others and have used it in my personal and business life.  The two are not mutually exclusive.
Usability of Mediawiki
After weeks of spending time to develop some extensions for mediawiki, i came to the conclusion, that wiki not only has
advantages. One big disadvantage is how people use the concept. When i was searching for code i read a lot of pages. A mix
of half todo-lists, half sketchbook and half needful things (3/2).

Another disadvantage is, that you did not realize interwiki changes. This is very nice for a seamless 'look and feel' But
you have to watch the url all the time.

The third disadvantage i noticed is the loss of hierachical structure. After jumping from several pages to another you end
up lost or suddenly cross the initial page again, going round in circle.

At the end i spend a lot of time reading useless stuff.

For normal readers mediawiki offers far more advantages, but as developper it is a pain to grab all the stuff. At the end
mediawiki is revolutionary and will change the world.

Where to write things

As you can see this is written in the talk part of the entry page of mediawiki. I'm sure , that some wizards can tell me
hundreds of places much better to write this down.

 1.create some sort of (internal) weighting links between pages. Google does it perfectly - (except when you are searching
information for a product. Then you get almost only ebay's and other sellers)
 2.publish some rules where to write and where not. (for private wikis as recommendation too)
 3.clear distiction of finished stuff and todos etc

Artificial Intelligence as it relates to | Shoutout (also another oppression
story) Shout out a thumbs up here | St. Nicholas The true story of #SantaClaus begins with #Nicholas , who was born during the third century in the village of Patara. At the time the area was Greek and is now on the southern coast of Turkey. His wealthy parents, who raised him to be a devout Christian, died in an epidemic while Nicholas was still young. Obeying Jesus' words to "sell what you own and give the money to the poor," Nicholas used his whole inheritance to assist the needy, the sick, and the suffering. He dedicated his life to serving God and was made Bishop of Myra while still a young man. Bishop Nicholas became known throughout the land for his generosity to those in need, his love for children, and his concern for sailors and ships. Under the Roman Emperor Diocletian, who ruthlessly persecuted Christians, Bishop Nicholas suffered for his faith, was exiled and imprisoned. The prisons were so full of bishops, priests, and deacons, there was no room for the real criminals—murderers, thieves and robbers. After his release, Nicholas attended the Council of Nicaea in AD 325. He died December 6, AD 343 in Myra and was buried in his cathedral church, where a unique relic, called manna, formed in his grave. This liquid substance, said to have healing powers, fostered the growth of devotion to Nicholas. The anniversary of his death became a day of celebration, St. Nicholas Day, December 6th (December 19 on the Julian Calendar). Through the centuries many stories and legends have been told of St. Nicholas' life and deeds. These accounts help us understand his extraordinary character and why he is so beloved and revered as protector and helper of those in need. St. Nicholas in prison Artist: Elisabeth Jvanovsky St. Nicholas giving dowry gold Artist: Elisabeth Jvanovsky One story tells of a poor man with three daughters. In those days a young woman's father had to offer prospective husbands something of value—a dowry. The larger the dowry, the better the chance that a young woman would find a good husband. Without a dowry, a woman was unlikely to marry. This poor man's daughters, without dowries, were therefore destined to be sold into slavery. Mysteriously, on three different occasions, a bag of gold appeared in their home-providing the needed dowries. The bags of gold, tossed through an open window, are said to have landed in stockings or shoes left before the fire to dry. This led to the custom of children hanging stockings or putting out shoes, eagerly awaiting gifts from Saint Nicholas. Sometimes the story is told with gold balls instead of bags of gold. That is why three gold balls, sometimes represented as oranges, are one of the symbols for St. Nicholas. And so St. Nicholas is a gift-giver. One of the oldest stories showing St. Nicholas as a protector of children takes place long after his death. The townspeople of Myra were celebrating the good saint on the eve of his feast day when a band of Arab pirates from Crete came into the district. They stole treasures from the Church of Saint Nicholas to take away as booty. As they were leaving town, they snatched a young boy, Basilios, to make into a slave. The emir, or ruler, selected Basilios to be his personal cupbearer, as not knowing the language, Basilios would not understand what the king said to those around him. So, for the next year Basilios waited on the king, bringing his wine in a beautiful golden cup. For Basilios' parents, devastated at the loss of their only child, the year passed slowly, filled with grief. As the next St. Nicholas' feast day approached, Basilios' mother would not join in the festivity, as it was now a day of tragedy. However, she was persuaded to have a simple observance at home—with quiet prayers for Basilios' safekeeping. Meanwhile, as Basilios was fulfilling his tasks serving the emir, he was suddenly whisked up and away. St. Nicholas appeared to the terrified boy, blessed him, and set him down at his home back in Myra. Imagine the joy and wonderment when Basilios amazingly appeared before his parents, still holding the king's golden cup. This is the first story told of St. Nicholas protecting children—which became his primary role in the West. St. Nicholas rescuing murdered children Artist: Elisabeth Jvanovsky St. Nicholas' prayer calming seas Artist: Elisabeth Jvanovsky Another story tells of three theological students, traveling on their way to study in Athens. A wicked innkeeper robbed and murdered them, hiding their remains in a large pickling tub. It so happened that Bishop Nicholas, traveling along the same route, stopped at this very inn. In the night he dreamed of the crime, got up, and summoned the innkeeper. As Nicholas prayed earnestly to God the three boys were restored to life and wholeness. In France the story is told of three small children, wandering in their play until lost, lured, and captured by an evil butcher. St. Nicholas appears and appeals to God to return them to life and to their families. And so St. Nicholas is the patron and protector of children. St. Nicholas providing food during famine Artist: Elisabeth Jvanovsky St. Nicholas saving innocents Artist: Elisabeth Jvanovsky Several stories tell of Nicholas and the sea. When he was young, Nicholas sought the holy by making a pilgrimage to the Holy Land. There as he walked where Jesus walked, he sought to more deeply experience Jesus' life, passion, and resurrection. Returning by sea, a mighty storm threatened to wreck the ship. Nicholas calmly prayed. The terrified sailors were amazed when the wind and waves suddenly calmed, sparing them all. And so St. Nicholas is the patron of sailors and voyagers. Other stories tell of Nicholas saving his people from famine, sparing the lives of those innocently accused, and much more. He did many kind and generous deeds in secret, expecting nothing in return. Within a century of his death he was celebrated as a saint. Today he is venerated in the East as wonder, or miracle worker and in the West as patron of a great variety of persons-children, mariners, bankers, pawn-brokers, scholars, orphans, laborers, travelers, merchants, judges, paupers, marriageable maidens, students, children, sailors, victims of judicial mistakes, captives, perfumers, even thieves and murderers! He is known as the friend and protector of all in trouble or need (see list). St. Nicholas blessing ships Artist: Elisabeth Jvanovsky Saint Nicholas Artist: Elisabeth Jvanovsky Sailors, claiming St. Nicholas as patron, carried stories of his favor and protection far and wide. St. Nicholas chapels were built in many seaports. As his popularity spread during the Middle Ages, he became the patron saint of Apulia (Italy), Sicily, Greece, and Lorraine (France), and many cities in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Russia, Belgium, and the Netherlands (see list). Following his baptism, Grand Prince Vladimir I brought St. Nicholas' stories and devotion to St. Nicholas to his homeland where Nicholas became the most beloved saint. Nicholas was so widely revered that thousands of churches were named for him, including three hundred in Belgium, thirty-four in Rome, twenty-three in the Netherlands and more than four hundred in England. St. Nicholas' death Artist: Elisabeth Jvanovsky St. Nicholas bringing gifts Artist: Elisabeth Jvanovsky Nicholas' tomb in Myra became a popular place of pilgrimage. Because of the many wars and attacks in the region, some Christians were concerned that access to the tomb might become difficult. For both the religious and commercial advantages of a major pilgrimage site, the Italian cities of Venice and Bari vied to get the Nicholas relics. In the spring of 1087, sailors from Bari succeeded in spiriting away the bones, bringing them to Bari, a seaport on the southeast coast of Italy. An impressive church was built over St. Nicholas' crypt and many faithful journeyed to honor the saint who had rescued children, prisoners, sailors, famine victims, and many others through his compassion, generosity, and the countless miracles attributed to his intercession. The Nicholas shrine in Bari was one of medieval Europe's great pilgrimage centers and Nicholas became known as "Saint in Bari." To this day pilgrims and tourists visit Bari's great Basilica di San Nicola. Through the centuries St. Nicholas has continued to be venerated by Catholics and Orthodox and honored by Protestants. By his example of generosity to those in need, especially children, St. Nicholas continues to be a model for the compassionate life. Celebrating St. Nicholas Artist: Elisabeth Jvanovsky Celebrating St. Nicholas Artist: Elisabeth Jvanovsky Widely celebrated in Europe, St. Nicholas' feast day, December 6th, kept alive the stories of his goodness and generosity. In Germany and Poland, boys dressed as bishops begged alms for the poor—and sometimes for themselves! In the Netherlands and Belgium, St. Nicholas arrived on a steamship from Spain to ride a white horse on his gift-giving rounds. December 6th is still the main day for gift giving and merrymaking in much of Europe. For example, in the Netherlands St. Nicholas is celebrated on the 5th, the eve of the day, by sharing candies (thrown in the door), chocolate initial letters, small gifts, and riddles. Dutch children leave carrots and hay in their shoes for the saint's horse, hoping St. Nicholas will exchange them for small gifts. Simple gift-giving in early Advent helps preserve a Christmas Day focus on the Christ Child.
