Yeah, I hope one or more of our elected officials come to their senses in time for the resulting change to do me some good while I'm still young enough to enjoy it.

But if you feel that you need God and the government to solve problems, you're in the wrong country. In America, businessmen hope for profits and change with the market. Suckers pray to God and wait for the government's help.

Once again, hand job, you spin things to your Marxist liking. The vote for the first is a vote against the 0bama government control and destruction of individual freedoms. 0bama may be your god, but I for real freedom.

Hey now!...twisting people's log ins into funny names is MY job!!!

(hand job was good though...I laughed and laughed...)

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

A theocratic dictatorship is far from "real freedom". See Iran.

You missed the point hand job, we are endowed inalienable rights by our creator, and no one can take them away, not even your god, 0bama. Read the constitution.

Exactly where in the US Constitution does it state that we are endowed inalienable rights by our creator?

Answer: Nowhere, because that line is in the Declaration of Independence.

There's a city full of walls you can post complaints at

yeah!...right on!!

The Declaration of Independence is just a piece a paper...right?

Or is it the first official document of the United States of America?

----------------------------------

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

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security. --Such has been the patient sufferance of these colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former systems of government. The history of the present King of Great Britain 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 refused his assent to laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

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 so 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 their public records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

He has dissolved representative houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the legislative powers, incapable of annihilation, have returned to the people at large for their exercise; the state remaining in the meantime exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

He has endeavored to prevent the population of these states; for that purpose obstructing the laws for naturalization of foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migration hither, and raising the conditions of new appropriations of lands.

He has obstructed the administration of justice, by refusing his assent to laws for establishing judiciary powers.

He has made judges dependent on his will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount 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 out their substance.

He has kept among us, in times of peace, standing armies without the consent of our legislature.

He has affected to render the military independent of and superior to civil power.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his assent to their acts of pretended legislation:

For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:

For protecting them, by mock trial, from punishment for any murders which they should commit on the inhabitants of these states:

For cutting off our trade with all parts of the world:

For imposing taxes on us without our consent:

For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of trial by jury:

For transporting us beyond seas to be tried for pretended offenses:

For abolishing the free system of English laws in a neighboring province, establishing therein an arbitrary government, and enlarging its boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule in these colonies:

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 themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

He has abdicated government here, by declaring us out of his protection and waging war against us.

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burned our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

He is at this time transporting large armies of foreign mercenaries to complete the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of cruelty and perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the head of a civilized nation.

He has constrained our fellow citizens taken captive on the high seas to bear arms against their country, to become the executioners of their friends and brethren, or to fall themselves by their hands.

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian savages, whose known rule of warfare, is undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

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 prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have we been wanting in attention to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, enemies in war, in peace friends.

We, therefore, the representatives of the United States of America, in General Congress, assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the name, and by the authority of the good people of these colonies, solemnly publish and declare, that these united colonies are, and of right ought to be free and independent states; that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the state of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as free and independent states, they have full power to levy war, conclude peace, contract alliances, establish commerce, and to do all other acts and things which independent states may of right do. And for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

It's not a system of government.

Since you raving teabaggers claim to "defend the Constitution" yet have no idea what purpose it serves, let me break it down to you in simple terms:

The Declaration of Independence = "Fuck you, King George!"
The Constitution = Blueprints for government

There's a city full of walls you can post complaints at

You must have missed the representatives from each state who signed the "piece of paper" which was written during the first continental congress......

Yes alice...the declaration is the first official document of the United States of America..

It is also a formal declaration of WAR against England.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Declaration_of_Independence

Educate yourself....because clearly...no one else has ...

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

And even if it was, it doesn't provide a framework for government. The Articles of Confederation and later the Constitution provided rules for governance. Did you drop out of high school before you had to take a civics class?

There's a city full of walls you can post complaints at

"The first sentence of the Declaration asserts as a matter of Natural law the ability of a people to assume political independence, and acknowledges that the grounds for such independence must be reasonable, and therefore explicable, and ought to be explained."

"The next section, the famous preamble, includes the ideas and ideals that were principles of the Declaration. It is also an assertion of what is known as the "right of revolution": that is, people have certain rights, and when a government violates these rights, the people have the right to "alter or abolish" that government"

Your notion that the DoI doesnt establish or confirm certain inalienable human rights is laughable...

We had been at war with england for a year without a formal declaration...here is the key paragragh handjob:

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

I know that liberals and progressives like to piss on the founders and such founding documents...but you cannot change reality by calling it something other than what it is...

The first official United States document acknowledging the natural rights of all FREE men...your lame attempts to play word games (rules of governence) notwithstanding.

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

I dont give a shit what he said...I was replying to YOU..

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

From Not Again: ...no one can take them away...

The Federal, State and Local governments have done a fairly good job of severely curtailing our civil rights so far, even in recent history. Consider the right to peacefully assemble, then look at police violence against demonstrators.

While you might argue that our right to peacefully assemble has not been taken away, it has been curtailed to the point where assemblage is not always effective as a tool to further a given cause.

'Suckers pray to God and wait for the government's help". isn't this Obama's slogan for Hope and Change.

From Progress22: Can you provide one example of how Obama's government control has limited your personal freedoms?

Let's see you provide three examples of the Obama regime restoring our civil rights, particularly the right to bear arms. You can't, because there are none. Our Federal government became more oppressive than ever under King George II via the 'Patriot' act which provided all facets of law enforcement the tools they needed to ignore our civil rights as well as giving the moonbats and the stupid party something they both could agree on.

The Anointed One could have restored a portion of our freedom, and should he ever deign to look down his nose and notice the hoi polloi suffering under Himself's Draconian law, just maybe his heart will be kind enough to inspire a change... but I doubt it.

Here are a few examples.

Cap and Trade/Energy Plan
1) Obama promised, electricity rates "will necessarily skyrocket".
2) Electricity "smart grid" - government monitoring of individual energy use and punishment due to "excessive use".

Health Care
3) Freedom to choose what's in your plan
4) Freedom to keep your existing plan
5) Freedom to choose your doctors
6) Possible fines/taxes/imprisonment for not purchasing 0bamacare.
7) Patient confidentiality is likely to be compromised since centralized health information will likely be maintained by the government.
8) Government is likely to pass additional restrictions or increase taxes on smoking, fast food, etc., leading to a further loss of personal freedoms.

Green Energy
9) 0bama’s green jobs agenda masks a "declaration of war against America’s most reliable sources of energy - coal, oil, and natural gas". The recent revelations regarding the evil S0R0S ownership in the Brazilian state oil company Petrobras, and the 10 billion dollar loan by 0bama.
http://sweetness-light.com/archive/obama-helps-soros-drill-oil-in-brazil
10) The green movement is about socialism and the destruction of capitalism.
http://www.breitbart.tv/obama-czars-shock-admission-green-jobs-goal-is-c...

Justice for all
11) There have been signals from the Obama administration that it would seek a new law to loosen the requirement that terrorism suspects be informed of their constitutional rights during interrogation. Remember you Marxists think the Tea Party is full of terrorists.

"Can we solve our own problems in the world?"

Those of us that don't know (MIKEY A) were supposed to know, and that he was just being sarcastic. Talk about hypocrites, I'll have one of my military friends join swamp bubbles and get a response from one of them and (I'll Tell you ONE time....lay off ----------...you are WAY off base.)..no excuses you should have known that so and so was in the military and that he was just being sarcastic.

'the right to self defense'?

I'm threatening you somehow on here?

The fact that we have differing political views, or that I get under your skin with written jabs on here constitutes a 'threat' or a 'challenge' to you?

Here's some A-B-C type information for you. At this point, I think you want to be very, very careful what you say. I don't particularly give a sh*t, but the operator of this site might.

Again, if this give-and-take gets you frothing like this, the issue is completely yours. Go sit out a couple of plays.

I appreciate those of you who believe that I'm psychic and knew that what MIKEY A was being sarcastic in his posting, and that he was in service, and like I said, tell him I thank him for his service and I salute him. I responded to a post, your response and HANDBANA’s response to me was ignorant, and after the fact. This is a blog, people post and people respond, because someone is in the military or in any other profession, or service doesn’t make them exempt. And as for your ( I'll Tell you ONE time....lay off mike...you are WAY off base), dictator comment, get some fucking class about yourself, who the fuck do you think you are, telling me how or who to respond to, you hypocritical asshole.

If that's the case maybe we don't need the war. So by extension MikeyA, for example, is over in Afghanistan right now because we don't really want to catch bin Laden.

Believe what you want, why were we in Vietnam? Do you trust the motives of our government.
