“If we wish to be free — if we mean to preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges for which we have been so long contending — if we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained, we must fight! I repeat it, sir, we must fight! An appeal to arms and to the God of Hosts is all that is left us!
They tell us, sir, that we are weak — unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance, by lying supinely on our backs, and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot?”
Just someting to think about. When is the day? When is enough enough? How many more freedoms and liberties protected by our constitution shall we allow the powers-that-be to erode until they are merely thin shells of what they once were and what made this country great and the destination of freedom loving people from the entire world? How many more restrictions on our freedoms shall we allow? How much more power over our lives shall we give up to the “government”? How many more times shall we disregard the restrictions that the constitution places on “government”?
I know that I am becoming less and less enchanted with our governing officials…..Where is your limit? Mine is approaching.
Re-Read Patrick Henry’s words. Ask yourself how you think he would answer you today???
Now ask yourself what do we do about it?
How do we remove these non-representing represetatives in our government?…Legally, if possible, if not……?
“The way you stop racial discrimination is to stop discriminating by race” – Chief Justice Roberts
Glad to see that the Supreme Court (5 out of nine, anyway) understands that discrimination is discrimination, no matter what the color or race, or gender of the people involved.
If blacks, or whites, or hispanics, or women or whatever cannot cut the mustard, and meet whatever standards are in place, then that’s too bad. Life ain’t fair. Statistically based hirings a discriminatory as any other. TO hire someone who is back or female to met a quota, or not hire someone because they are white, or black or male, yet are qualified because of a quota, is discrimination.
Now if we could only make the other 4, (and potential justice Sotomayor) to understand this, we’d be on a path to get this country back on track.
But I doubt that this will ever happen, all in the interest of “fairness”

Having the moral high ground is good.
Having the moral high ground and a large gun is better.
Anyone who has a Representative who voted for the “carbon cap and trade” boondoggle, please remember their name and actively campaign against their reelection. Once again, we see Partisan politics at work, and we see our reps voting for a bill that they HAVE NOT REVIEWED IN ITS ENTIRETY. How can they vote in YOUR interests if they are unaware as to what a bill contains?
IMNSHO this should be illegal, and those who go along with this sort of thing are violating the contract that they made with their constituents. It is, IMNSHO, treachery that in other times and other days with other values would have resulted in the perpetrator being shot for their actions…… Good thing for them that that is illegal in today’s world.
But in some places in the south, I am led to understand, lynchings are still legal with proper cause…..
Go and laugh…Or not, as ye choose.
I think I need one just for the hell of it.
This is an example of what we can look forward to if the federal government (democrats) gets what they want: socialized medicine.
The bureaucracy is bad enough in private care. But government run healthcare is likely to make the VA look like a well run clinic for aging millionaires…
Let’s not forget the fact that those of us who actually work and pay taxes will be paying for those who do neither….
…government is an entity which stays benign only so long as those who make up its character are so disposed. The very soul, mind, heart and action of any government are a direct expression of the morality, or lack of it, by those who make up the government and those who elect them. “

From my cold dead fingers….
Again we have that frog being boiled slowly.
Go here for an interesting article on how things are gonna go. Ask yourself if he’s wrong.
Then ask yourself, “What am I gonna do to prepare for it? And what am I gonna do to try and stop it?”
Then ask yourself again,…”How am I gonna prepare for it?” Then start.
Think about it….
