I Pledge Allegiance

h/t Holger Awakens

Remember when?


Remember when? ...back before we noticed government destroying businesses and farms, courts and financial stability, and now whole industries.
“It is the responsibility of the patriot to protect his country from its government.”
- Thomas Paine
The current form of government has made itself a leech, a cancer, sucking the life out of the country. As it fattens, it is killing the host.

I also remember a time and place where the government provided stability and consistency, and where robust individuals were able to reap the rewards for their innovation and hard work. No, really. Maybe it was a local/regional phenomenon, but I remember it. It's what the founders intended. And I want that back.

That's the attraction in the videos: The nostalgic notion that people are free to do things without begging the government; that 'we the people' are anything other than Eloi to serve the Morlocks.
"--That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of 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."
- Jefferson, et al
Imagine that: A government constituted with the specific task of ensuring my Safety and Happiness.

Awesome: Day by Day 'Civil War Blog'

American Interest is blogging the Civil War!
The blog has daily "updates" from the archives of newspapers as they were originally published 150 years ago, day by day.
So on December 20th 2010, the blog feature articles and editorials that were originally published on December 20th 1860. etc.

December 20th 1860 has President Buchannan dealing with the secession of several states.
Buckle up!

Prepare for interesting times.


Warning: 'American Interest' editorials and essays are frequently pro-Obama pro-Statism-Lenninism, and against traditional American ideals and against many of the traditional 'Liberal' philosophies of Western Civilization as embraced by our founders. The civil war is interesting, even when Marxists and RINOs write about it.

Or at least I hope so.
It would be a shame if marxists try to re-write history, no?

Fed.Gov at War with Christians

from Drudge: Feds force bank to pull 'Merry Christmas' buttons ... [read the whole thing and watch the video]
A small-town bank in Oklahoma said the Federal Reserve won’t let it keep religious signs and symbols on display.

[...] deemed a Bible verse of the day, crosses on the teller’s counter and buttons that say "Merry Christmas, God With Us." were inappropriate. The Bible verse of the day on the bank's Internet site also had to be taken down.
The bank was told that failure to comply would result in referral of the matter to the Department of Justice for further enforcement actions.
Fed.Gov conducts religious war against the people, driving religion out of our society through force.
Stalin behaved similarly.

One of these days, we will constitute a government that is specifically tasked with protecting our religious freedoms. And people who violate their oaths of office will be prosecuted.

"Merry Christmas" to the Fed and to all the fed.petty dictators.
Expect FCC 'net neutrality' coersion of religion soon enough.


Update: After begging, the bank was granted limited "rights" by their overlords (who deem to have it in their power to grant such requests, when the begging suffices).

Who is being prosecuted for tyranny? Which director of which region is also liable for allowing it?
What are the names of the individual Fed employees involved?
Tyrants deem themselves above the law, and try to avoid responsibility. 'Above the law' also means 'without the rule of law'. Long prison sentences are the 'easy way' to reign in these 'god-like' creatures who have taken over our government.

Without consequences, the long train of abuses continues and gets worse.
Start the prosecuting. Please.

Start gathering powder and shot in Concord and Lexington.

Do nothing, since your life isn't worth the trouble.

"He who does not punish evil commands it to be done"
-Leonardo da Vinci
