238 years

07/04/2014

Two hundred and fucking thirty eight years. Was that all we had in us? One hundred years ago we should have caught the clue. Eighty years ago for damn sure.

I just wanted to share that thought.

    Some peoples will to power and arrogance combined with other peoples apathy and lack appreciation for just how special a place this country was designed to be is proving to be a fatal toxin.

    The fact that this country is not perfect and does not fulfill all peoples wants and needs equally seems to be a fatal flaw in the eye of those with the will to power and arrogance. Material equality of course is a straw man for the willful, arrogant demagogues who promote such nonsense as they have no intentions of ever living under such constraints. They as much as anyone understand such “equality” among human being does not and can not exist.

    The best that can be done is leave people to their own devices under a basic set of rules that discourage mayhem and fraud; encourage christian charity and have as little other interference as possible by over officious busy bodies. Consent not coercion.

    This is exactly what the founders did 238 year and two days ago. They declared such a society into existence unto their creator in that men would be allowed to pursue happiness in any legal i.e un-harmful to others manner they chose without the powers that be coercing and confiscating their hard won property and God given rights.

    Yes the founders were wise but imperfect men and understood there are no perfect or perfectible men and thus(later) put limits on those who would seek to govern us. But because of their tolerance for slavery they tarnished their legacy and handed a cudgel for those who seek to tear down this grand experiment. As if that tolerance some how diminishes the idea of the rights of man. All the while the attackers dismiss the millions killed and billions enslaved by their dystopian philosophy of atheist humanism and faux equality as mere egg breaking.

    Yes the founders system is imperfect as it presumes an educated and moral people. The fact that we have elected a hateful, anti-American, lawless, Marxist, tribalist to the White house twice with no viable way to remove him because of the corruption of one party, the cravenness of the other party and the dishonesty of the institutions that are now infested with the same manner of critter as the one infesting the White house now,

    Yes it is imperfect. It was never designed to be as it was to be administered by fallible human beings

    If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men,  neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary. In framing a 
    government which is to be administered by men over men, the great difficulty lies in this:  You must first enable the government to control the governed; and in the next place, oblige it to control itself. A dependence on the people is no doubt the primary  control  on  the  government;  but  experience  has taught mankind the necessity of auxiliary precautions.

    James Madison, Federalist 51

    No it is not perfect. No human endeavor is. It is just the best possible way to organize a society when compared with all others.

    Happy Independence Day!

    It is not that hard to explain. John Adams got his wish butBe careful of what he wished for. We are, as a People, this lesser children of a great House that collapses under the weight of our neglect.

    Indeed. If the foundation crumbles, the walls collapse.

    We the people were once proud employers and farmers who feed and clothed the lesser among these shores, are now labeled as salve owners by the very government that “We the People” enacted. This same government is now the big daddy of salves black and white among us; safe guarding and guaranteeing their own short existence, hopefully.

    When in a doomed existence a society of “We the People” are controlled by a black and all powerful questionable president; that decrees that “We the People” shall feed, house and tend to the sick, criminal and unskilled of unwanted citizens of foreign countries, this living, walking and spreading cancer is the act of a terrorist, Obama demands among us, with respect.

    This president as king, high priest and imam; has his paid guards and drones do his bidding, as did Cesar, Pharaoh, Pilot, Stalin, Hitler and the endless list of despots who ruled in time, unlike America’s George Washington who fought and froze side by his fellow patriots. Not Obama while he steps on another jet to play golf, lavish vacations and extols money from his sheep of ungodly troops of evil doers in the mass media outlets spread.

    When We the People have our Fourth of July celebrating our victory over the British who burned Washington D.C. and more to the ground as a reminder that King Gorge of England was still our King, Obama is committing no less and a lot more, We the People will never forget him neither.

    A little Edit”

    We the people were once proud employers and farmers who feed and clothed the lesser among these shores, are now labeled as salve owners by the very government and workers that “We the People” enacted and freed. This same government is now the big daddy of salves black and white among us; safe guarding and guaranteeing their own short existence, hopefully.

    When in a doomed existence a society of “We the People” are controlled by a black and all powerful questionable president; that decrees that “We the People” shall feed, house and tend to the sick, criminal and unskilled of unwanted citizens of foreign countries, this living, walking and spreading cancer is the act of a terrorist, Obama the terrorist demands be among us and the African American oxymoron’s agree and demand but are due no respect.

    This president as king, high priest and imam; has his paid guards and drones do his bidding, as did Cesar, Pharaoh, Pilot, Stalin, Hitler and the endless list of despots who ruled in time, unlike America’s George Washington who fought and froze side by side with his fellow patriots. O no, not Obama’s little black finger he points out, while he steps on another jet to play golf, go on lavish vacations and extols money from his sheep of ungodly troops of evil doers from the mass media outlets of zombies.

    We the People have our Fourth of July celebrating our victory over the British who burned Washington D.C. and more to the ground as a reminder that King Gorge of England was still King. Obama is committing no less and a lot more, that We the People will never forget him or forgive him neither.

    The Assassins were an order of Nizari (Nizi Party?) Ismailis Muslimsn but America had John Wilkes Booth, Lee Harvey Oswald and Rome’s Senate had Marcus Julius Brutus.

    Any guess as to who will cook up something first?

    Actually, I’d say things started to go bad just about 100 years ago under Wilson. Progressive, proto-commie, racist, corrupt, and with terrible foreign policy. 20 years after him we had FDR keeping the Great Depression going year after year, when most of the rest of the world recovered in half the time. Again, stupid policies. And the inability to just keep your hands off, to let the problems solve themselves.

    Bingo, Drew. What did I say? 100, then 80. We should have done it THEN!!!!!!!
