Graduation is an occasion  by the bright and brilliant to share their big ideas about what is important.  This important speech was given at his graduation from the presidency Jan. 17, 1961.

President Dwight D. Eisenhower as he was leaving office  on Jan.17,1961  warned us of the military industrial complex.  We have failed his warning.  But like most things in life there is always opportunity for change. The real threat we face in America is not a military invasion.  The real treat is  effectively educating our young people, providing jobs that pay a real living wage, health care for every citizen, increasing our investment in research for curing or preventing Alzheimer’s.  Our country is threatened from within not from outside.
