When in the Course...


"...of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected then with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to separation.

The history of the present President of the United States is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over these states. To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world.
...He has forbidden his governors to pass laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his assent should be obtained, and when suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them...
...He has refused to pass other laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of representation in the legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only...
...He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of public records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures...
...He has obstructed the administration of justice, by refusing his assent to laws for establishing judiciary powers...
...He has made judges dependant on his will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and payment of their salaries...
...He has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people and eat our sustenance...
...He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our Constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his consent to their acts of pretended legislation...
...For quartering large bodies of foreign troops among us; For protecting them, by a mock trial, from punishment for any murders which they should commit on the inhabitants of these states...
...For imposing taxes upon us without our consent;
...For depriving us, in many cases, of the benefits of trial by jury;
...For taking away our charters, abolishing our most valuable laws, and altering fundamentally the forms of our governments;
...For suspending our own legislatures, and declaring himself invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatever...
...He has abdicated government here by declaring us out of his protection and waging war against us...
...He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us...
...In every stage of these oppressions we have petitioned for redress in the most humble terms; our repeated petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A president whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people."
(From the American Declaration of Independence.)

And once again he has displayed his utter arrogance in abrogating our Constitution and laws in declaring the courts to no longer hear cases concerning immoral homosexual marriages; by invoking and encouraging SEIU thuggery toward citizens legally declaring their desires, not only in Wisconsin, but nation wide.

http://elmtreeforge.blogspot.com/2011/02/rep-michael-capuano-you-are.html (I rest my case.)

Which proves he will act in every way he can to bypass the Legislative and Judicial branches of our government in efforts to create his tyrannical rule of our nation. How long before we have lost every Constitutional right we have? Every one of our Inalienable Rights.

Can you spell 'treason'?

Bless God, God bless.

Prophecy...

"...One of the reasons that we don't have a shooting civil war is that those who would fight are not murderers. Not because they fear jail, but because they know that murder is wrong..."
AmericanMercenary has a few words of wisdom for us tonight. Take a look, think about it.
The way events are unfolding these days, he may well have more to teach us.

Tyranny

When my Honey got me to start this blog, I really wondered why I should, and what would be the result? Really, I didn't think I had anything to say that would interest anyone and sure as hell didn't think I'd be posting as much as I have- and for sure I never thought anyone would read my scribbling. So, I want to thank you readers- you've warmed my heart. (And sometimes made it skip a beat!)
But tonight isn't about me- it's about all of us. Every person who writes a blog, and especially about those who are up-to-date and aware of the stunts being pulled by dotgov against the people of our great nation.
TLDavis writes in a few places, many of you are aware of him and his stance against the incivilities being perpetrated upon Americans today, especially those who support and defend the Constitution.
Today, or recently, he has come under notice of our esteemed dotfed and they've put him under attack. By none other than the IRS. Why? He's unsure of the real reason- the agent (Michael Sandoval, Northern Colorado Bureau) has used a resolved past issue as his reason for investigation. Of course, 'resolved' is a non-issue with the dotgov since they make the rules these days and do whatever the hell they want.
And the point of this is: if they can do this to one of us, they can do it to any or all of us. And don't for a second doubt they won't be coming for more of us. Count on it. The 'war' is just beginning, in the stage where parties involved are just being belligerent toward each other. It won't be long before the shooting starts.
Denninger has an excellent post on this issue tonight- and starts off with a question each of us should have a clear answer to firmly planted in our hearts and minds. Check him out http://market-ticker.org/akcs-www?post=179584
And with that- be safe, keep your powder dry.
Bless God, God bless.

Riddle me this...


... there aren't a tremendous number of people within my 'social circle'. Still, the majority- probably due to the area in which I live- are pretty liberal in their thinking.
By liberal, I mean they vote democrat and belong to and vociferously support unions- and obviously vote the way their union tells them.
So right away, I'm at a disadvantage in most conversations and need apply some really 'off the cuff logic' when talking with them ('talking' usually meaning I'm out-numbered and out-shouted on nearly every topic).
Getting to the riddle me part...
A recent discussion about the rioting going on in Egypt and our American part in it, brought up the topic of oil and how, if the Suez is closed or shut off from transporting oil, then we're going to be suffering some serious price increases in gas prices- of course, everyone was whining about gas already being $3.20 a gallon and hurting their budget. One suggested an answer to the problem would be to send American troops in to protect the area.
Curious about this response, I asked the person what was the difference in our troops fighting for oil in Egypt as opposed to his view of why we fought in Vietnam- which, according to this Conscientious Objector person, was that we shouldn't have been in 'Nam because it was just a war over oil and big business.
Needless to say, his response was to change the subject.
Pushing the issue, I had to ask him to riddle me this: "Why is it the people complaining most about our fighting wars to maintain our oil supply are the ones complaining most about the rising cost of their oil products?"
Now, let me carry this question a bit farther into our daily lives.
"Why is it the ones complaining most about the high cost of food are the environmentalists on the front lines of halting the use of insecticides, fertilizers, and oil-powered machinery, in the production of food?"
Further: "Why is it the unions sympathize with tree huggers to prevent logging and oil production- and thereby employment to Americans- in 'wilderness areas'?"
And, of course, there's the great debate today: "Why is it the tree hugging Goreball Warming weenies who're bitching and pissing most about how cold and snowy it is this year?"
Got to stop now- there's no defending idiots and banging their heads together will only give you a headache.

Bless God, God bless.

Cold...

LOL, got to chuckle about this Goreball warming- though this hasn't been the coldest winter in MN history, it's in the top 50. Still, when you think about it- cold like this...

... is really only relative- especially when you have a warm relative to cuddle with.

Really- just think how much warmer it'll feel in July when the humidity is in the 90 percentile and air temp will be 90 as well. Dad always used to say, "I can always put enough clothing on to be warm, never could take enough off to be cool." I go with that sentiment- though if I could have my druthers, I'druther go nekky all the time. (But I'd have to say the neighbors may get a little disjointed if I did.) Not that they can see me through the trees, but one may decide to stop by and have some coffee.

Speaking of which- coffee and a good book- or some good blogs- to read is a fine way to trash a really cold day. So saying, let me thank all you bloggers who do such a wonderful job keeping me entertained these cold winter days. It's appreciated.

I'm surprised by the weather report tonight- single digits in northern Mexico- that should keep a few illegals from crossing the border, at least. Or freeze their carcasses before they get here, which is just as good as not coming.

Now if I can just get Mayberry to appreciate a good, cold day. (wink wink)

Be safe, stay warm, bless God, God bless.
