This September 17, 2017, We will celebrate the 230th birthday of the signing of, Our Constitution. Whether WE are history buffs or not, most will know the following quotes:

“WE hold these truths…”

excerpt from: The Declaration of Independence July 4th, 1776

&

“WE the People…”

excerpt from: The Constitution of the United States of America, Signed, September 17th, 1787

These two documents represent our founding. The first, declaratory of such things as equality and unalienable rights and etc. Those signing, represented the People of the thirteen colonies which were declaring their god-given right to be free and independent states. Please note, no court in our country recognizes this as a legal document which has no standing and no state, according to, Our supposed-to-be-serving US, judicial branch. But that is WRONG! The same WE that held those “truths” are the same “WE the People” in the Preamble to Our Constitution, and the same “WE the People” of, The United States of America today. But please note again, no court in our country recognizes the Preamble as having any force or effect in legal matters as pertaining to Our Constitution. And again, that is, WRONG, so very, very, WRONG!

There is a familiar expression that those who live under a monarchy either in ceremonial or actual power understand. It was familiar in the times of King James, the namesake of the authorized King James Version of the Bible, in 1611. It was familiar to and in the writings of, a contemporary then, William Shakespeare. And it was familiar to King George of Great Britain in, 1776 and to our founders. The phrase was and may still be used today, “WE the King” (or Queen or other ruling monarch), “of England” (or other kingdom – rule by a monarch). These words are a figure of speech. A figure of speech is a legitimate grammatical usage of words that are truer to truth than the literal statement of fact. This figure of speech empathizes the nearest noun as its antecedent which, in this phrase, would be the word, “king.” The power of the King is emphasized by including every person and even all the property and all resources of the kingdom.

Our founders were rejecting the rule of a monarch and the dominance of any religion in their desire to be free and independent states with each individual having equal and god-given (Laws of nature and Nature’s God), rights. “WE hold these truths” emphasizes the signers of the Declaration that behind them is, all of the people and all the property and all the resources of the thirteen colonies and not just their pledge of their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor, but all of Ours too! “WE hold these truths,” was then and is now, in direct opposition of and in contrast to the words, the meaning and the monarch of, “WE the King!”

“WE hold these truths” in essence is, repeated and made specific in Our Constitution in the opening of its (Our) Preamble, “WE the People!” “WE the People” emphasizes all of the people and the property and all of the resources of the Free and Independent States of 1787 and not just the signers of the Constitution of the United States of America. “WE the People” was then and still are, in direct opposition of and in contrast to the words, “WE the King,” the meaning and the rule of any monarch, even a democracy (rule by majority) or any of the three branches of Our government, THEN and still TODAY!

“WE the People” are, the authors, the writers, the signers, the power and the authority and hold original jurisdiction over all our property and all of Our resources, Our Constitution, and Our Republic. “WE the People,” are, the rule of Law (the Republic), the Law of the Land! Never, Ever forget this!! WE made the government to serve US! We do NOT serve the government!

So, in preparation of the signing of Our Constitution’s 230th Birthday, September 17, 2017, How about baking a cake?! 🙂

Happily Ever After Birthday Constitution— Love, WE the People

“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, 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.”

Preamble to the U.S. Constitution

Please note, it is my purpose and intent to repeat the entire Preamble word for word throughout this series. Perhaps WE all will have it memorized at its conclusion and keep it!

Class Action Lawsuit

July 8, 2016

If pure law was made to protect the law-abiding (and it was) and not the lawless (and it wasn’t), why does it seem that the law-abiding are punished (and they often are) and the lawless get off FREE, (and they often do)? What is the problem? Is it the law or is it the lawyers? You can answer that for yourself.

But whether you intend to break the law (have criminal intent) or just break it because you are ignorant, unknowing or just incompetent, does this mean there should be little or no consequence? And please do not use the Bill Clinton (lawyer) response, “That it depends on what is, is.”

Dotting all the i’s and crossing all the t’s might be useful (but not necessarily, necessary to understand, in writing sentences and reading them, but it appears to be absolutely necessary; a requirement in legal terms, as is punctuation, capital letters or not, certain words, keywords, and all kinds of extraneous and a superfluity of bullshite loopholes. Lawyers make these legal terms or direct them.

I can certainly understand that punishment for ‘intent’ would be greater than the punishment, for just breaking the law, but because ‘intent’ has not been proven beyond a reasonable doubt, does not or should not mean that no charges are filed, there should not be a jury, or a grand jury, or judge only, should NOT hear the case, try the case and judge that consequences of breaking the law applies, convict if proven guilty and mete out a just punishment, swiftly!!!!

“Justice delayed is justice denied”

The quote above is a legal maxim— an established principle or proposition. Just like lawyers, and congress and government in general can’t agree on much of anything, no one seems to agree on where this quote came from either.

‘Respectfully Quoted: A Dictionary of Quotations, attributes it to William Ewart Gladstone, but it CANNOT be verified.

Some believe it was first used by William Penn in the form of, “to delay Justice is Injustice,” according to:

‘Penn, William (1693), ‘Some Fruits of Solitude, Headley, 1905, p. 86.

Mentions of ‘justice delayed and denied’ are found in the Pirkei Avot 5:7, a section of the Mishnah (1st century BCE – 2nd century CE): “Our Rabbis taught: …

“The sword comes into the world, because of justice delayed and justice denied…,”

10 Minutes of Torah. Ethical Teachings Selections’ from Pirkei Avot.
http://tmt.urj.net/archives/4jewishethics/052605.htm

The Magna Carta of 1215, clause 40 reads, “To no one will we sell, to no one will we refuse or delay, right or justice.”

Martin Luther King, Jr., used the phrase in the form, “Justice too long delayed is justice denied,” in his “Letter from Birmingham Jail”, smuggled out of jail in 1963, ascribing it to a “distinguished jurist of yesteryear”.

Chief Justice of the United States, Warren E. Burger noted in an address to the American Bar Association in 1970:

“A sense of confidence in the courts is essential to maintain the fabric of ordered liberty for a free people and three things could destroy that confidence and do incalculable damage to society: that people come to believe that inefficiency and delay will drain even a just judgment of its value; that people who have long been exploited in the smaller transactions of daily life come to believe that courts cannot vindicate their legal rights from fraud and over-reaching; that people come to believe the law – in the larger sense – cannot fulfill its primary function to protect them and their families in their homes, at their work, and on the public streets.

Burger, “What’s Wrong With the Courts: The Chief Justice Speaks Out”, U.S. News & World Report (vol. 69, No. 8, Aug. 24, 1970) 68, 71 (address to ABA meeting, Aug. 10, 1970).

The courts are made up of judges and judges are first, lawyers. Lawyers graduate from law schools. Law schools are supposed to teach law and many of the professors may be lawyers or former lawyers that also, graduated from some law school. Sometimes, presidents are lawyers or have a law background. Congress has many former lawyers. The supreme court judges are all, first and foremost, lawyers. The entire government is riddled with lawyers.

Our biggest problem is not with the law per se, it is with the lawyers or the executives, legislators and the judiciary that make the laws, enforce or not enforce them and are more prone to NOT seek justice, but to win their cases, make their arguments, profit from them, protect themselves and their profession; their intuitions of law, and rather than protecting the innocent, they protect the lawless. Loopholes and interpretations, legislating from the bench and not whether one is guilty or not, but what can be proved is, their training and their focus.

No matter what side you may be on with the latest FBI conclusion that no criminal charges against the former Secretary of State and presumptive Democrat nominee for president of the United States, Hilary Clinton, with her mishandling of classified material and the Justice Department accepting that recommendation and no criminal charges will be filed, it’s not the law which is troubling, but the lawyers that wrote, write, interpret, defend or prosecute them, apparently at their discretion and their benefit.

If this is purely political theater (as was said by those who seek to keep this matter going), the Republican Party response seems to go to yet another law and associate it with what the FBI and the Justice Department views as, a closed case. And what law is that? Did the former secretary lie to congress, but not the FBI? But the FBI did not include that testimony in their “comprehensive” investigation. When asked why not, the Director of the FBI said that Congress had not sent them a formal request. To this the person asking said, “You will have one shortly!” So, if this continues, it could only end in a charge or charges of perjury. But perjury will be difficult to prove. The entire matter is laden with corruption and perversion. If the “careless” mishandling of classified material were not concerning on its own, as it is, the lawyers or lawyer-directed legalese that have corrupted and perverted the intent of the law, the law of the land— which is, to protect US, WE the People, from the lawless and punish  the lawless, to me is even more egregious an a threat to national security!

I will give you an example of this corruption and perversion from my own state of New York and my own personal experience.

About a year ago, I was pulled over on the ramp of an entrance to a highway. It was an obvious traffic stop, looking for drunk drivers or to see if people were wearing their seat-belts, I supposed. This was, seat-belt related. After I stopped, an officer approached me and gave me a ticket, as he was told to do, by his supervisor. His supervisor said, that he saw me NOT wearing a seatbelt and to ticket me. Now of course, I would, as most people charged with anything would say, “I’m innocent.” And it does not matter if I really was or not, as you will shortly understand. But I had two choices. I could pay whatever fine was required by my state and county and etc. or try to fight it in court. I decided to go to court.

On my court date, I was given two more choices. I was to either plead guilty and pay whatever the judge said or I could have a trial. Ooops, and I thought I was at trial and the officer would be there? Nope.

OK, I wasn’t there because I was guilty, but before I said I wasn’t, I asked the judge a question, which he allowed. “If I come to trial and plead innocent and win, will they drop all charges and any costs to me, except for my time wasted in coming to court twice? Well the judge informed me that there are no court costs, but there is an administrative fee, which I would have to pay, one way or another. Sure, label that jar of peas, peanut butter, but it’s still peas! Costs or fees, it’s still monies. That’s legalese and PC (political correctness) all rolled into one lump court cost that’s not?

So, let me see if I have this straight? Plead guilty to something I did not do. Pay whatever fine the judge decides. Points are deducted from my license. Enter a plea of guilty that become public record. My insurance most likely will go up. AND I still have to pay the (about) $100, the administrative fee? Yes. And if I go to trial and lose, I may have to pay a larger fine and the $100 administrative fee? Yes. Oh, and one more thing. The police can give me a ticket, even if they know I’ve done nothing wrong because, one way or another, I’m going to have to pay that $100! Is this messed up or what? Does this sound like extortion, racketeering and collusion to you? Is it the law or the lawyers that wrote it or directed it? Well, my prosecution rests! 🙂

WE the People, should ALL file a class action suit against the law profession?! WE the People should just sue the legal profession, sue the hell out of them! But who would do it for US? Who could WE get to represent US?????

Another maxim—

“He who represents himself has a fool for a client.”

A supposed quote by Abraham Lincoln?

This proverb is based on the opinion, probably first expressed by a lawyer, that self-representation in court is likely to end badly. As with many proverbs, it is difficult to determine a precise origin, but this expression first began appearing in print in the early 19th century. An early example comes in ‘The flowers of Wit’, or a choice collection of bon mots, by Henry Kett, 1814:

…observed the eminent lawyer, “I hesitate not to pronounce, that every man who is his own lawyer, has a fool for a client.

In the play, King Lear, by William Shakespeare, In Act I, Sc. 4, the king’s fool makes a lengthy rhyming speech, containing a great many trite, but useful moral maxims, such as:

Have more than thou showest,
Speak less than thou knowest, &c.,

The king found that testy and flat and tiresome.

Lear. This is nothing, fool.
Fool. Then, ‘tis like the breath of an unfeed lawyer: you gave me nothing for it.

Representing oneself in Latin is, acting pro se, which means, for oneself.

If WE could find among US, a lawyer(s) that could and would represent US, would they be a fool, in representing themselves as well? And their profession might think them a fool, if they dare go against them? Are WE then just shite (old English term, you figure out its current meaning) out of luck? Are WE, without representation? Are WE, without a prayer? Are WE, up a creek without a paddle? NO!

WE the People have two, to represent us— The Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States of America. One these two documents, all the law and all the laws of the United States are supposed to be based on. The legal profession does NOT view them like that!

Regardless of what the courts might rule, the Declaration of Independence is not some past historical writing of its time and just some relic to be archived in a museum. I was then and remains a legal document, an affidavit  of fact and conclusions. In logic, it presents its factual premises (whereas) and its conclusions (therefore). It is the the foundation of Our Republic. It is Our raison d’être (reason to be). It is (WE are), The Apple of Gold in a picture of silver. It is Our Constitution which is the picture of silver, made of , by, and for WE the People, to protect, defend and preserve for ourselves and our  posterity, Our unalienable rights! The picture was made to serve US, WE the Apple of Gold, and NOT US, for the picture of silver!

Regardless of what any court might rule, the preamble to Our Constitution and the entirety of Our Constitution is relevant, essential and inseparable to the Declaration of Independence and to US, WE the People, the Apple of Gold! WE the people do have standing, and state, and original jurisdiction, to bring this case before them! Consider the following excerpts.

                                                                                                              

“The word “Unalienable” appears in one of the greatest phrases of The United States of America’s history.”

“We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men [all-inclusive noun] 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.”

Excerpt from the Declaration of Independence 1776

“The Kansas City Court of Appeals for the State of Missouri quoted verbatim the above language of 1776 with approval in Morrison v. State, 252 S.W.2d 97 (Mo. Ct. App 1952), and then went on to say (also quoting):”

Inalienable is defined as incapable of being surrendered or transferred, at least without one’s consent.”

Webster New International Dictionary, Second Ed. Vol. 2,
Page 1254. 252 S.W.2d at 101.

Unalienable: incapable of being alienated, that is, sold and transferred.”

Black’s Law Dictionary, Sixth Edition, page 1523:

“You can not surrender, sell or transfer unalienable rights, they are a gift from the creator to the individual and can not under any circumstances, be surrendered or taken. All individuals have unalienable rights.”

Inalienable rights: Rights which are not capable of being surrendered or transferred without the consent of the one possessing such rights. Morrison v. State, 252 S.W.2d 97 (Mo. Ct. App. 1952).”

“You can surrender, sell or transfer inalienable rights if you consent either actually or constructively. Inalienable rights are not inherent in man and can be alienated by government. Persons (not individuals) have inalienable rights.”

“Most state constitutions recognize only inalienable rights. Here we have the so-called same defined words of unalienable and
inalienable being separated, not as the same thing, but differently and by an appellate court judge.”

“You and I may think inalienable and unalienable mean the same thing, but apparently, courts and states do not. Therefore, what is unalienable cannot be taken or transferred and relates itself to rights, and what is inalienable, could be surrendered or transferred if by consent and relates itself to privileges. Words have meaning and carry rights and results or privileges and consequences.”

“In U.S. vs. JOHNSON (76 Fed, Supp. 538), Federal District Court Judge James Alger Fee ruled that,”

“The privilege against self-incrimination is neither accorded to the passive resistant, not to the person who is ignorant of his rights, nor to one who is indifferent thereto. It is a fighting clause. Its benefits can be retained only by sustained combat. It cannot be claimed by attorney or solicitor. It is valid only when insisted upon by a belligerent claimant in person.”

McAlister vs. Henkle, 201 U. S. 90, 26 S.Ct. 385, 50 L. Ed. 671; Commonwealth vs. Shaw, 4 Cush. 594, 50 Am. Dec. 813; Orum vs. State, 38 Ohio App. 171, 175 N.E. 876.

Here again we find a federal court judge using both the words “privilege” and “rights.” From the context, this is referring to the 5th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Did you ever think that a judge would make such a ruling?”

“OUR privileges and inalienable rights could be taken or transferred, but if you or I want OUR unalienable rights protected, WE have to fight for them and become “belligerent.” WE out of necessity, to protect OUR rights, must stand in contempt of court. Words have meaning and they carry results or consequences.”

Here in the ruling is, but one example of division, or separation and in essence, an adversarial relationship.”

“If WE the People do not know OUR rights and fight for them, who will?”

Excerpts from: ‘RESET’ (An Un-alien’s Guide to Resetting Our Republic)

Just imagine, just suppose we were able to actually get a court to hear this case. What do you think their decision would be? Yes, for themselves, the defendants! OK, so what if we get it appealed, all the way to the United States Supreme Court? What would be their decision? Would they allow US, WE the People, to RESET our Republic or rule in their favor, to keep their jobs appointed for life? Most likely to keep their job, but for US? Probably— NOT!!!!

Let’s sue the Legal Profession? Let’s bring a class action suit against the legal profession? Let US, WE the People, sue the legal profession, sue the hell out of them? Probably NOT!

Do you know why Lady Justice is blindfolded? Well, I used to believe she could see, but she blindfolded herself on purpose or purposefully, for equality; for equal justice. Now, I’m really starting to think the legal profession poked her eyes out so, she would not know the scales were being tipped (imbalanced) and the whole legal profession rigged the system, for their exclusive benefit!

ClassAction3

There must be a better way? There is! It involves bypassing the legal profession entirely, but it is legal and the legal profession must YIELD, to the authority and power of, WE the People! Another Blog post on another day. Look for, The Thirteen Coming Soon!

No PC just CS

“These are the times that try men’s [and women’s] souls.”

Thomas Paine

NoPC1No PC just CS Here?

The first image, a red circle with a red angled line is a familiar visual word meaning, “not” or simply, “NO.” The letters PC could have different meanings, but here its meaning is, Political Correctness (PC).

I have become weary in bending my ears and having to hear it. My eyes have lost their focus and left them cloudy and bleary and hazy and teary-eyed, to have had to look upon it. My lips have become locked to speak of it ever again. Instead, I will return to CS which is, Common Sense. If you need to know what this is, there is the likelihood that you may not have any or political correctness (PC) has driven it far from memory? If I could teach it I would. I know no other way to define it or to share with others how it could possibly be imparted, than by what was written, well over 200 years ago.

NoPC2

Although this was originally published anonymously and first on January 10, 1776, it is no less relevant today, June 17th, 2016, 241 years later. It is almost prophetic in light or in the darkness of our present situation. It was originally titled ‘The Plain Truth,’ but was changed to ‘Common Sense’ and was written in the simple language understood by anyone and especially common folk. It was first published as just a 48 page pamphlet, but it went through many editions and was probably purchased or gifted and read by nearly 20,000,000 (TWENTY MILLION) people in its day. That is saying a lot, considering that the population in the original 13 colonies was only around, 2,500,000 when it was written. For comparison, multiply these numbers by a factor of 10, then do it again. This would be almost 2 billion copies read in a population of the USA at 250,000,000. But really, we are over 300 million.

What is really significant about this book besides its commonality with our present day, the very words were considered seditious and if the author was discovered (now we know it was Thomas Paine), he would have been hung as a traitor to England. The popularity of his work could have made him a tidy sum in his times, but he donated every penny to George Washington and the cause of Liberty. Just forty-eight pages was in essence, the call to revolution for liberty!

If like me, you feel immersed in, drowning in filth and stuck in diseased and life robbing muck of political correctness that is promoted by over-educated idiots that say-nothing and do-less, that cannot discern the difference between a fact and an opinion, I highly recommend reading, ‘Common Sense.’ If you would just like to know what common sense is, to recall it or just be healed by it, I greatly suggest you saturate yourself inside-out with it by reading, ‘Common Sense.’ I am almost nearly 100% sure that if you just had a printed copy lying unread, but in close proximity to you, you might get healed by absorption or as if by osmosis! I will in conclusion to this post, provide you with links whereby you can read it for yourself and/or download it to be viewed on your computers, laptops and/or other digital devices, at your convenience and OFTEN and to share it OFTEN!

 

My suggestions for reading ‘Common Sense’:

Get a good unabridged dictionary and keep it close by. An unabridged dictionary will show origins of words and perhaps explain words as used in the day of its writing that may be unfamiliar to you. And of course, it will define words you may not know. It is interesting to note from the language that if it was common in that day, many of us might think it above our current level of education? We have certainly dumbed down in many ways since 1776.

Read ‘Common Sense’ as if it were being written today, in the time in which we live. Change words as England with perhaps, the United States. Replace the word ‘king’ with say, the executive, legislative and judicial branches of government locally, state-wide or the federal government. Change names to people living presently.

If you will read ‘Common Sense’ as if it were written in 2016, you will be amazed how it speaks to you, to me, to US, WE the People living now.

 

The Present Truth:

We do not have a king in title ruling us, but political correctness has divided us, government has and is dividing us; the media is; education or the lack thereof is dividing us. Politics divide us. Money out of your pocket into that of others with or without our consent divides us. We are divided from one another, from our friends and even our own families. This is the exact opposite of our founding, our purpose as a republic with a constitution written to preserve and protect our unalienable rights as penned in the Declaration of Independence, in 1776. We revolted against tyranny of the day and secured the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, NOT because we were divided, but because WE the People, were— UNITED!!!

Today, we are ripe for a takeover, not merely from some visible external force, but our enemy comes to us from the outside and are among us. The enemy within and the enemy without, have ideologies which are absolutely contradictory to our Constitution as ours is, to theirs. There are only two choices. They either assimilate with ours or we must assimilate with theirs. There is NO other way for the Republic of, by and for the people to remain. If you do not understand this, you have no common sense and are as Joseph Stalin said, “useful parrots,” to the divided-falls-for-everything!

It was Thomas Paine in ‘Common Sense,’ that wrote, “government is, a necessary evil.” Yes, it is necessary, but do NOT for a moment forget that it is EVIL.” It is NOT our friend, our savior, it is force. In the name of division and political correctness, this force which was purposefully limited has because of its nature of EVIL, divided us and deprived us of our unalienable rights such as: Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. Little by little our freedoms have eroded and continue to erode, amassing the power of WE in the name of some national security or some national crisis into the power and control and redistribution of, by and for the few!

If John Dickinson was the pen of the revolution see: http://wp.me/pGfx1-wy, Mercy Otis the Conscience see: http://wp.me/pGfx1-x0, Thomas Jefferson was the writer declaring our Independence, Thomas Paine with ‘Common Sense’ was the case for liberty. and Patrick Henry was the shout, heard all around the world—

“Give me Liberty or give me death.”

 

Yes, as Paine wrote, “These are the times that try men’s [and women’s] souls.” But for me, I will no longer accept this or political in-correctness. Un-friend me, do not follow me or subscribe to my posts. Divorce me, ban me from your home, kick me out of even my own family if you must. Disavow me and do not allow comments from me, if you deem this necessary. I am weary of dividing and political correctness! If you have no ‘Common Sense’ or refuse to even read ‘Common Sense,’ as linked and provided to you below FREE of Charge, by the way, then depart from me and I will from you! If departing it must be, I would you peace and clarity. I will count you as a brother or a sister. I hold onto hope that one day we could be friends and family. If we are not united, then we are divided, and if we are divided, then I must count you as mine enemy, though it be intentional or not. I am no soldier. I am no eloquent speaker or succinct, clear and popular author. I have no great sphere of influence, no wealth, no sacred honor to pledge, or life that may seem to matter much, but I matter because, I exist. But I can with equal resolve as any and by ‘Common Sense,’ yell to my dying breath just as Henry did, “Give me Liberty or give me death.” I am just me, but I am—

1 of WE,

NOTES:

The original publication of Common Sense consisted of approximately 48 pages

Thomas Paine began work on Common Sense in late 1775 under the working title of Plain Truth. With the help of Benjamin Rush, who suggested the title Common Sense and helped edit and publish, Paine developed his ideas into a forty-eight page pamphlet. Paine published Common Sense anonymously because of its treasonous content.

Printed and sold by R. Bell, Third Street, Philadelphia, it sold as many as 120,000 copies in the first three months, 500,000 in the first year, and went through twenty-five editions in the first year alone. This would be roughly 20,000,000 million copies being sold today on Amazon dot com.

It was first published anonymously on January 10, 1776, during the American Revolution. Common Sense, signed “Written by an Englishman”, became an immediate success.[1]

In relation to the population of the Colonies at that time, it had the largest sale and circulation of any book in American history. Common Sense presented the American colonists with an argument for freedom from British rule at a time when the question of independence was still undecided.

Paine wrote and reasoned in a style that common people understood; forgoing the philosophy and Latin references used by Enlightenment era writers, Paine structured Common Sense like a sermon and relied on Biblical references to make his case to the people.[2]

Historian Gordon S. Wood described Common Sense as, “the most incendiary and popular pamphlet of the entire revolutionary era.” [3]
Paine donated his royalties from Common Sense to George Washington’s Continental Army, saying:

“As my wish was to serve an oppressed people, and assist in a just and good cause, I conceived that the honor of it would be promoted by my declining to make even the usual profits of an author.”

Memorial Day has passed, but neither death nor honor knows any particular time. The living think on and dream of death, a beautiful death. A beautiful death? What is beautiful about death? I suppose it depends on the manner of one’s death? But according to the Bible, death is an enemy. The hardest words to utter in the original language of the Old Testament Bible are:

“Moses my servant is dead!”

God to Joshua, Joshua 1:2a, King James Version (KJV)

The shortest sentence in the Bible, appears in the New Testament. It was in response to Jesus Christ being told his friend Lazarus, had died.

“Jesus wept.”

John 11:35, King James Version (KJV)

“When King Lear dies in Act 5, do you know what Shakespeare has written? He’s written, “He dies. ” That’s all, nothing more. No fanfare, no metaphor, no brilliant final words. The culmination of [one of] the most influential work [s] of dramatic literature is: “He dies. ” It takes Shakespeare, a genius, to come up with, “He dies. ” And yet every time I read those two words, I find myself overwhelmed with dysphoria. And I know it’s only natural to be sad, but not because of the words “He dies,” but because of the life we saw prior to the words. I’ve lived all five of my acts, …and I am not asking you to be happy that I must go. I’m only asking that you turn the page, continue reading…and let the next story begin. And if anyone ever asks what became of me, you relate my life in all its wonder, and end it with a simple and modest, “He died. ” I love you… Your life is an occasion. Rise to it.”

Excerpts from the movie script: ‘Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium’

BeautifulDeath_poem

In passing, to those that care, a beautiful death might be to ease the burden of their passing, to those they love and that they are amply provided for. To others, a beautiful death may be to be surrounded by their loved ones and to quietly close their eyes and take their final breath. A beautiful death, for others could be, to pass from this life to the next, without regret or fear. For myself, I would simply like to be alone with God, turn my face to the wall, peacefully pass away and to wake at, the return of Jesus Christ.

There is no greater example of love, commitment and dedication than a soldier who has died for Freedom or to wounds from defending Freedom, for they gave and will freely give their lives to something far greater, than their own lives!

“Greater love hath no man [or woman] than this, that a man [or woman] lay down his life for his [or their] friends [and family and all others of our nation].”

John 15:13,King James Version (KJV)

To a soldier, a beautiful death may best be described by the words of a presently living veteran.

“…we honor those who gave it all to their country and then some. It amazes me often how men and women find the courage to put on the uniform and wear their patriotism freely and honorably. It also reminds me of what Nathan Hale said one time, “I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country.” The heroes of this country deserve a day to be celebrated and reflected upon, but not mourned. I conclude this post with a great quote from General George S. Patton, “It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men [and women] who died. Rather we should thank God that such men [and women] lived.””

excerpt from the words of a living Army veteran: Chuck Mcmillen

A beautiful death to a soldier is knowing that they and their loved ones would be honored by a military funeral, the draping of their beloved flag over their coffin, an honor guard, a 21 gun salute,the playing of TAPS one last time, the folding of their flag and the presentation of this flag to their chosen loved one.

A United States flag drapes the casket of deceased veterans to honor the memory of their service to America. The flag is placed so that the blue field with stars is at the head and over the left shoulder of the deceased.

After Taps has been played, the flag is carefully folded into the symbolic tri-cornered shape. A properly proportioned flag will fold 13 times on the triangles. Some believe these represents the 13 original colonies, but each fold has a specific meaning. For the meaning of each fold, see: Folds of the Flag

The folded flag is emblematic of the tri-cornered hat worn by the Patriots of the American Revolution. When folded, no red or white stripe is to be evident, leaving only the blue field with stars. When the flag is completely folded, the stars are uppermost, reminding us of our national motto, “In God we Trust.”

The folded flag is then presented as a keepsake to the next of kin or an appropriate family member. Each branch of the Armed Forces uses its own wording for the presentation …

U.S. Air Force: “On behalf of the President of the United States, the Department of the Air Force, and a grateful nation, we offer this flag for the faithful and dedicated service of (Service Member’s rank and name).”

U.S. Army: “This flag is presented on behalf of a grateful nation and the United States Army as a token of appreciation for your loved one’s honorable and faithful service.”

U.S. Coast Guard: “On behalf of the President of the United States, the Commandant of the Coast Guard, and a grateful nation, please accept this flag as a symbol of our appreciation for your loved one’s service to Country and the Coast Guard.”

U.S. Marine Corps: “On behalf of the President of the United States, the Commandant of the Marine Corps, and a grateful nation, please accept this flag as a symbol of our appreciation for your loved one’s service to Country and Corps.”

U.S. Navy: “On behalf of the President of the United States and the Chief of Naval Operations, please accept this flag as a symbol of our appreciation for your loved one’s service to this Country and a grateful Navy.”

If the next of kin has expressed a religious preference or belief, add: “God bless you and this family, and God bless the United States of America.”

The significance of the 21 gun salute is that the numbers are the summation of 1776.

Anyone may request, on behalf of their deceased soldier, a flag flown over our Nation’s Capitol, from either their district’s U.S. Representative or U.S. Senator of the state wherein they reside. An interment flag (a flag used to drape a coffin) is 5’ X 9 1/2‘. Flags are not flown on the following holidays: Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day. You can select a fly date for the flag to be flown, but cannot submit it more than two weeks in advance. The Flag Office will only process Same Day Rush requests for funerals. Personalized dedications are permitted, but limited to 300 characters.

What Really Matters?

Donald Trump on what are the three most important roles of government

by Dahni

© 2016, all rights reserved

In a recent Town Hall Meeting on CNN (3/29/16), hosted by Anderson Cooper, Republican candidate for president, Donald Trump, was asked a question by a member of the audience, a young veteran. The audience applauded the man’s service to our country whereas, Donald Trump did not.

The question asked by the veteran to Mr. Trump was, “In your opinion, what are the top three functions of the United States government?”

Mr Trump’s complete answer:

“Well, the greatest function of all by far is security for our nation. I would also say health care, I would also say education. I mean there are many, many things, but I would say the top three are security, security, security. We have to have security for our country so we can continue to exist as a country.”

His simple answer to much criticism was, “Security, Security, Security!”

A candidate that skipped a presidential debate in support of raising money for veterans and whose every rally, every debate, his website and his every public statement on the matter of the military (whether written or otherwise), has been in support of a strong military and support of our veterans. And because he did NOT applaud a veteran which asked him the question, it is taken to mean that he does not support the military and our veterans? Even worse, since he did not applaud this veteran it is because, Trump has no respect for this man’s service to our country and that he [Trump] does not care? I too have not always applauded every veteran, thanked them, said Happy Birthday to people and have missed feeding my cat on occasion. None of these things mean I do not care about them or do not respect them. It just means, like Donald Trump, we are both human. And like Mr. Trump, I have a pretty good track record (not perfect, but consistent) of demonstrating what and whom I care about!

Donald Trump is criticized for his statement in answering the veteran’s question because, it was not articulate enough for some. For others, it did not include Liberty or freedom or anything other than his simple and repeated answer to the question he was asked. Does this show he did not understand the question or answer it correctly? Let us look to our founding documents, The Declaration of Independence and The Constitution of the United States of America.

Declare

The Declaration

“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”

Excerpt from: The Declaration of Independence

Which “unalienable” right such as, “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness,” could be realized without security? What is the purpose of government, but to— “secure these rights?”

Constit

The Constitution

Preamble to The Constitution of the United States of America

“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, 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.”

How is it possible to “establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility” [and] “provide for the common defense,” without a government to— “secure these rights” of which it was formed to do?

Article II

Section 1.

“The executive Power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America.”

“Before he enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the following Oath or Affirmation:–“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

How could the president of the United States of America, “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States,” without the government, “deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,” to— “secure these rights?”

Which or what freedoms enumerated in the Constitution, would be possible without the government’s ability to— “secure” them?

Section 2.

“The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States;…”

Is this not the responsibility of the president as, “Commander in Chief,” to— “secure these rights”?

Section 8.

“The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;…”

Is this not also, the purpose of Congress, to— “secure these rights”?

And what of the Supreme Court, the judicial branch of government? As a branch of government, as are the executive and legislative branches also branches, are they not purposely limited “from the consent of the governed,” to— “secure these rights”?

What right, liberty, freedom or privilege of WE the people is possible, without the government held by sworn oaths to “preserve, protect and defend” to— “secure these rights”?

“Security, Security, Security,” said Mr. Trump. There is no fault in what he said. The fault lies with those who do not understand what he said or understand that every right, our Liberty, our every freedom and every privilege afforded to every citizen of the United States of America, by WE the People who have given consent, for the government to– “SECURE THESE RIGHTS!”

I am however, grateful that Trump’s answers to the question as to the top three functions of government did not include: global warming (Bernie Sanders), Open Borders (Clinton, Cruz and Kasich) and everything I could possibly ever need or want from the womb to the tomb (democracy/socialism/communism/anarchy/tyranny)!

Maybe you do not like the simple answers given by Mr. Trump? But then again, maybe, just maybe, he understands what most of us don’t seem to understand? Perhaps he understands that our system of government and WE are so overwhelmed to distraction; our attention span so limited, all most of us can understand and remember is, ‘What Really Matters’ to most of us— “SECURITY, SECURITY, SECURITY?

The Declartion is the apple and the Constitution is the picture - "to secure these rights!"

The Declaration is, the apple of gold and the Constitution is, the picture of silver to- “secure these rights” and these are words, “fitly spoken!”

What really matters? That a candidate for the office of president of the United States of America applauds every time, for every veteran, or that he consistently supports them? What really matters? That a candidate for the office of president of the United States of America answers a question with the right tone and articulation; the opinionated and expected words such as rights, liberty, and freedom etc. or that he believes in “security, security, security, to— “secure these rights?” What really matters? Do we know what our rights are and that the government is empowered by US to— “secure these rights?” What really matters? Do WE the People merely mentally ascend to and profess these rights or do WE each and every one of us WE the People, do everything in our power to— “secure these rights?” WE the People are, the government of, by, and for the people to— “secure these rights!”

And if you consider Mr. Trump’s first answer was “security” and his second was “health” followed by “education,” what good is security if people are not healthy or know how to— “secure these rights?” But he ended with, “Security, Security, Security!” I do not know about you, but for me, to— “secure these rights” is,  ‘What Really Matters!’

Why Vote

September 26, 2015

Why vote? In one word—FREEDOM!

VoteFreedom

Yes, that is the simple answer, but WE have a tendency of complicating things and may completely miss the simple. Perhaps the word “freedom,” needs some explaining?

If you have ever met, know someone or may one day meet someone, for which the following applies, then maybe this will help persuade them? If the shoe fits, then maybe the following will help persuade you?

I have heard and know people who didn’t vote or have never voted. There have been a few times that I did not vote, so the following is, for me as well.

Because of freedom, each of us are free to vote and we each have the freedom not to. But before continuing, I would just like to point out some very important facts about freedom.

We are NOT the first republic, but we are the oldest still in existence. Search the history of US and you will discover that what made our meteoric rise possible, as both an economic and a military world power is due to, FREEDOM. It is very simple. Where there is the freedom to think and dream and produce the things we have and have produced, for the world is because, WE the people are free! Therefore, WE have the incentive to produce, innovate and develop technologies, products and services and even produce food, like no other nation on earth! This freedom is NOT free. Men and women have paid for it and are still paying for it, to keep us FREE! If there were no other reasons than for them, each of us should vote! Freedom is NOT FREE. Someone(s) has to pay to protect it and WE should pay by voting to keep it!

I have selected the following videos, for all of us.

Dom Roso, a former U.S. Navy Seal, begins with a very somber wake-up call. Look beyond the sponsor of this video (the NRA – National Rife Association) and focus instead on, the message by someone who knows what he is talking about. He lived it on the front lines!

“Do We Deserve the WWII Generations Sacrifice?”

The next video is also, very sobering. As you watch it, think too of all the wars our soldiers fought before those on the video. Think on the Civil War and all others before it and then where our Country began, during the Revolutionary War, around 1776. FREEDOM has been fought for and paid for, for as long as the heart has cried for FREEDOM!

As many whine about how hard it is to sing or remember the words of our National anthem, listen to this five-year old little girl and behold her enthusiasm singing, The Star Spangled Banner.

As many may now grow up without ever learning and saying the Pledge of Allegiance because, it is thought to be ‘separation of church and state,’ due to just two words, “under God,” think about this next video from 1969.

Red Skelton, 1969 CBS television

To learn and sing our National Anthem, to recite the Pledge of Allegiance and to vote, seems pretty simple and the least WE can do, for those that pledge with their lives, to keep US FREE. What can they fight to protect, if we will not fight to keep our nation FREE?

And for them, what more can we do? If you see a soldier, thank them, help them, drive them to a polling place and ask them about why you should vote! Feed them and support them, where ever they are!

Our big holidays are coming up. Many of our soldiers will be far from home while we be in comfort, during the holidays. Would you like to bring a taste of home to some of those serving, far away from home? Check out and donate to the GI Bar-b-que. see:

http://gibbq.com/about-us/

And finally, we’re almost done here. The Day is Done. Our last videos are familiar to every soldier and to many that have ever heard its powerful and meaningful sounds. As this plays, read the lyrics!

Taps

These many soldiers buried at Arlington National Cemetery and all over the world, were often given a recorded version of their beloved TAPS. These 33 buglers believed, every soldier deserves a ‘LIVE’ playing TAPS over their brow as they rest, having given the ultimate sacrifice for you and I. FREEDOM is NOT FREE! Every soldier believes freedom is worth dying for. Can we not honor them and believe and vote that freedom is, worth living for?

To Secure these Rights

September 7, 2015

There are many things that make me angry and in time, I can usually get-over most of them, but this one really pisses me off. Now in public, I don’t normally use this kind of language, but it sure as hell fits here!

Not too often in the past, have I encountered such ignorance. Either I am starting to run into more of these people or there is a trend and the numbers are growing larger. I hope, I’m just running into them and they are NOT really getting larger!

Have you ever met people who almost proudly proclaim, “I don’t vote,” or “I’ve never voted,” well, I have, too often and too many times!

We are gearing up right now for another presidential election. Here is a summary of what I’ve read:

1. You can’t win the next election without the Latino, Women’s, Evangelical vote and etc.

2. Running third-party just splits the vote?

Are any of those things actually true? Third-parties spilt the vote? NO! Third parties provide an alternative to cast your vote as you believe, who is the best candidate. Win or lose is not the point. The point is exercising your choice and voting, that’s part of it, but there’s MORE! Consider the last presidential election. The ONLY reason the other party lost was because, 4 million registered voters stayed home and did not vote at all!

“If the spirit of the ruler rise up against thee, leave not thy place; for yielding pacifieth great offences.”

The Bible, Eccleasiates 10:4, King James Version (KJV)

To leave or to yield pacifies great offenses. We cannot sit idly by and expect government to protect our rights!  To do nothing gives consent, to the government to greatly offend!

“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,..”

excerpt from: The Declaration of Independence, 1776

Copy of the original Declaration of Independence

Copy of the original Declaration of Independence

Why vote? You are exercising your inalienable rights and giving consent to the powers that be, “to secure these rights!

For myself, IF I cannot or will not explain this to anyone that does not vote, I have no reason to be angry with them about not voting. But IF I do explain this to them and they do not change, I have no reason to associate with them nor do they have a reason for me to NOT, be angry with them!

My most recent experience is with another non-voter which is a citizen (as far as I know), but he came here over 15 years ago from another country. He operates a successful business and I have done business with him for years, that is until recently. In a conversation, he revealed that he has proudly, never voted. And he never voted in his mother country either. I asked him why not, here? He said, “Why should I vote, I do not have children in school, why do I have to pay school tax?” Well, I don’t like school tax either, we do not have any school-age children living with us or that go to any school where we live, but this is not the point. It’s not that I mind contributing to a more educated future, I mind having to, without my FREE choice to do so! And as to the non-voting businessman, wouldn’t a more educated community make better customers, for him? I think and believe most assuredly, YES! Well, he became busy with customers and we did not finish our conversation. It needs to be resolved, before I can with a clear conscience, continue to do business with him. Is this too strong of a response to, his not-voting? Why should I give him one penny more, IF he will not vote, “to secure these rights!” By the way, I like him, he is a nice man; he has a nice family; he has a nice store that I frequent.

Usually, when I meet legal immigrants that either are new citizens here or are in the process of becoming citizens, I find that they know more about our country and form of government than many people I’ve met that were born here and have lived here all their lives! And many of them, have lived here many, many years longer than these new citizens or legal immigrants in route to becoming citizens! So, I was really taken by surprise, by my recent non-voter experience.

To be fair and honest, I need to explain to him and all others I know or may meet that do NOT vote, why they should vote. And IF after that and they still refuse to vote, I need to excuse myself, disassociate myself from them and as it might be, to no longer do business with them! Too strong a response by me?

“I know no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves, And if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to inform their discretion by education. This is the true corrective of abuses of constitutional power.”

Thomas Jefferson, 3rd president of the United States

“An educated citizenry is a vital requisite for our survival as a free people.”

Thomas Jefferson, 3rd president of the United States

Our rights being secured by the government of, by and for the people is, dependent upon all of us being educated and exercising those rights in voting and giving our consent, “to secure these rights!

I have a proposal.

Since WE the People know government wastes a lot of money that neither it or WE do NOT have, why not spend some of it on citizen education and voter registration! Who better to employ in these positions than returning soldiers or any veteran that needs and wants a job! Pay them a living wage so that they can support themselves and their families. Pay for their health care whereby, they can choose any doctor, medical service and hospital of their choice, for themselves and their families. And pay for their continued education and their families! Why? Because they have lived and live and many have died, “to secure these rights!”

Screw the VA Hospitals! Shut them ALL DOWN! Trying to compete with private healthcare supposedly, by controlling costs that actually bulge and inflate the federal government in costs to administer it, while denying coverage, increasing wait times for poor coverage and often which does NOT even give adequate coverage, to those that have served or are serving and to those families of those that have given the ultimate sacrifice, “to secure these rights,” is, dishonest and simply stated, screws OUR veterans!

MilitaryEmblems_sm

The department of Citizen Education and Voter Registration, would perform 4 functions:

1. Support our veterans who have paid, “to secure these rights!”
2. Determine who is and who is not here legally, “to secure these rights!”
2. Educate or re-educate our citizens for an educated “citizenry,” “to secure these rights!”
3. Register voters to continue, “to secure these rights!”

Send them out to every dwelling in the whole United States and every territory and wherever a citizen may be. It could go, something like the following:

Knock Knock – Ring Ring or Buzz Buzz

Hello, I’m      name      from the United States Department of Citizen Education and Voter Registration. I served     dates and places of service       in       branch of military      and I was [injured or served with those that were injured or gave their lives] to, “secure these rights” such as, “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness!” Now you may not agree with the political purposes, for which I and other soldiers were and are deployed or the political reasons our leaders would not allow us to complete the missions, or with the rules of engagement which restricts our service, for which were or are tasked, but I and all who served or serve, freely chose or freely chooses to do so, “to secure our rights!”

I am here to help educate or re-educate and to where necessary, help you to register to vote, that you too, might help to, “secure these rights!” A well-informed citizenry is necessary, to choose our political servants that will make the best possible decisions, “to secure these rights!”

SecureTheseRights

What remains, “to secure these rights,” is NOT which is mightier, then pen or the sword because, both are necessary to those desirous of freedom and, “to secure these rights!” Freedom is NOT FREE! The sword or our military is necessary, “to secure these rights!” The pen or the instrument used to cast our votes is necessary, “to secure these rights!”

Our military use the ‘sword,’ “to secure these rights,” that WE the People, may continue to be FREE to use the ‘pen’ to vote,“to secure these rights,” and that they might NOT have to use the sword, “to secure these rights!”

And should you and I find ourselves in a conversation with a non-voter, if we know a veteran, ask them to help us, to secure these rights!” If we don’t know a veteran, find one and ask them to help us, “to secure these rights,” face to face, by conference or video call, by email or mail or by whatever means available to help us, “to secure these rights!” And after they have helped us AGAIN, “to secure these rights,” for sure, thank them, for their service, “to secure these rights,” but also feed them or give them something they might need for this their service AGAIN, “to secure these rights!” 

Freedom continues to ring, as long as, all are educated and exercise their right to vote and our military continues to exercise their right to serve, “to secure these rights!”  Send this link by an means necessary to all military, all citizens and especially, to all those that are ignorant of the right to vote, “to secure these rights!”
