Happy Birthday Constitution!

We the People. 

Three little words I love to hear.  :)  They begin one of the greatest documents in history. 

Today is the birthday of the United States Constitution.  It is 225 years old today, and means just as much now as it did then.  Age has only added to its beauty.  :) 

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Happy Independence Day!

Awesome article. 🙂

New Pledge

My friend Elizabeth W. sent this to me in an email some time ago.  Thanks hon! 

 

Written BY A 15 year old student in Arizona

New Pledge of Allegiance
Since the Pledge of Allegiance and The Lord’s Prayer are not allowed in most Public schools anymore
because the word ‘God’ is mentioned….
A student in Arizona wrote the attached

NEW School prayer :

Now I sit me down in school
Where praying is against the rule
For this great nation under God
Finds mention of Him very odd

If Scripture now the class recites,
It violates the Bill of Rights.
And anytime my head I bow
Becomes a Federal matter now.

Our hair can be purple, orange or green,
That’s no offense; it’s a freedom scene.
The law is specific, the law is precise.
Prayers spoken aloud are a serious vice.

For praying in a public hall
Might offend someone with no faith at all.
In silence alone we must meditate,
God’s name is prohibited by the state.

We’re allowed to cuss and dress like freaks,
And pierce our noses, tongues and cheeks.
They’ve outlawed guns, but FIRST the Bible.
To quote the Good Book makes me liable.
 
We can elect a pregnant Senior Queen,
And the ‘unwed daddy,’ our Senior King.
It’s ‘inappropriate’ to teach right from wrong,
We’re taught that such ‘judgments’ do not belong.

We can get our condoms and birth controls,
Study witchcraft, vampires and totem poles.
But the Ten Commandments are not allowed,
No word of God must reach this crowd.

It’s scary here I must confess,
When chaos reigns the school’s a mess.
So, Lord, this silent plea I make:
Should I be shot; My soul please take!
Amen

The Law is the Law/So Be It

I saw this over on my blogger friend Mind of a Mom’s site and asked it I could use it for my site here.  There is so much good thought in it, and if you exchange Canadian for United States,  then you can see why I think it makes great sense to post it here.  :)  Right and wrong are right and wrong, across nations, across peoples, around the world.  People want to live with good morals and values, the right ethics.  That’s the bottom line.

So if the Canadian government determines that it is against the law for the words ‘Under God’ to be on our money, then, so be it.

And if that same government decides that the ‘Ten Commandments’ are not to be used in or on a government installation, then, so be it.

I say, ‘so be it,’ because I would like to be a law-abiding Canadian citizen.

I say, ‘so be it,’ because I would like to think that smarter people than I are in positions to make good decisions. I would like to think that those people have the Canadian public’s best interests at heart.

But, you know what else I’d like…

Since we can’t pray to God, can’t trust in God and cannot post His Commandments in Government buildings, I don’t believe that the Government and its employees should participate in the Easter and Christmas celebrations which honour the God that our government is eliminating from many facets of Canadian life.

I’d like my mail delivered on Christmas, Good Friday, Thanksgiving, and Easter.

After all, it’s just another day.

I’d like the Canadian Supreme Court to be in session on Christmas, Good Friday, Thanksgiving, and Easter, as well as Sundays.  After all, it’s just another day.

I’d like the Senate and the House of Commons to not have to worry about getting home for the ‘Christmas Break’. After all, it’s just another day.

I’m thinking that a lot of my taxpayer dollars could be saved, if all government employees would work on Christmas, Good Friday, and Easter.  It shouldn’t cost any overtime since those would be just like any other day of the week to a government that is trying to be ‘politically correct’.

In fact…

I think that our government should work on Sundays, initially set aside for worshipping God.  Because after all, our government says that it should be ‘Just Another Day’.

What do you all think???

If this idea gets to enough people, may be our elected officials will stop giving in to the ‘minority opinions’ and begin, once again, to represent the ‘MAJORITY’ of ALL the Canadian people.

Special Editorial: Repeal

A one-word agenda for Republicans.

BY William Kristol

March 22, 2010 9:00 AM

The editors of National Review sensibly counsel conservatives, in the wake of last night’s victory for Obamacare: “‘Nil desperandum’–never despair.” I agree, though I’m more inclined to the mock-Latin motto of the Harvard band: “Illegitimi non carborundum”–don’t let the bastards get you down.

Why not? Because we can repeal it.

As National Review’s editors explain (and see also the strong Wall Street Journal editorial this morning), this legislation “will increase taxes, increase premiums, and increase debt, while decreasing economic growth, job growth, and the quality of health care.” So it will–if it is allowed to go into effect.

Luckily, key parts of Obamacare–especially the subsidies–don’t go into effect until 2014. So what Republicans have to do is to make the 2010 and the 2012 elections referenda on Obamacare, win those elections, and then repeal Obamacare.  

Of course that can’t be the whole message in 2010 and 2012. Of course there will be other important issues. And even on this issue, the message will have to be not just repeal but also replace–replace Obamacare with sensible reforms. What’s more, working out exactly how to repeal and replace the parts of the legislation that will already be in effect is an important task, one to which I know Paul Ryan has already given some thought.

But the details of the replacing and reforming are secondary. Repeal is the heart of the matter. It should be the heart of the message. Think of it this way: This year Obama has handed Republicans a one-item Contract with America, an item a majority of the public supports–opposition to, and therefore repeal of, Obamacare.

Barack Obama was able to muscle his health care plan through, and therefore avoided a legislative defeat that Sen. Jim DeMint had said would be his Waterloo. But Waterloo was always an imperfect analogy. Leaving aside the injustice to Napoleon of comparing Obama to him, the better analogy is Borodino.
