Where the Founders went wrong....

with the US Constitution.

They allowed the US Constitution to be defined out side of itself.

They should of been implicit and clear within the document as to what was intended.

Leaving it up to an outside court or the Federalist Papers to inform us, the people, what was intended.... mmmmmm not such a goog idea.

All that was needed to destroy The Constitusion was to change in the publics eye and in the courts what it means.

My 2 cents,

Warning!!!!!

I keep hearing, "That if we don't kick Obama out of office The Republic is dead."

This is crap. Not that he isn't doing a lot of damage, but let's look at it this way, "Who would of been president if he would had of lost the first time?"

Answer, John McCain.

We (the country and Tea Party) would still be a sleep; No Tea Party, No public debate on *the debt* or returning to founding principles and limited government. Just some of us still bitching at big spending RINO Republicans and getting shit on by our own party.

If Mit or Perry do win, are they going to talk a good game while still growing government to further political ambitions? Just slowing the bus down on it's trip over the cliff.

Are we going to go back to sleep thinking we have won?

I would rather have Obama in office than some RINO Populist.

I would rather control the Senate & House than the Presidency.

Bureaucracy Defined

If insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting different results, then...

A bureaucracy is defined as where you fix multi-dysfunctional systems by adding another overarching layer.

Government Insanity.

Sigh...,

FEMA a study in what not to do.

Does this make any sense?

"Now here's where the bureaucratic red tape comes in. Under FEMA regulations, the tornado shelters are considered "temporary" -- only necessary while the schools are being repaired and the students are in the trailers. When the schools are rebuilt or repaired, FEMA rules state that the federal government has to get rid of the shelters.

That can happen three ways:

1) The schools can buy the shelter from FEMA (about $375,000);

2) The schools can find a buyer;

3) If neither 1) nor 2) is feasible, FEMA will give the schools more taxpayer money to demolish the shelter and haul away the debris."

Evangelistic Atheist Piss Me Off.

As one atheist to another, shut the f*** up. I really hate when someone tries to push their beliefs onto others.

This pisses me off.

It would be something if 'they' made it mandatory that you had to stop and prey in front of it, now that would be something.

Why or what makes Dave Silverman think he has any moral authority to even have an opinion as to what goes on at or into the 9/11 memorial. Is he part of the 9/11 families or one of the 9/11 emergency workers? If not, shut the f*** up.

I really wish people would go and look at what Thomas Jefferson actualy said about a wall between church and state.

Atheist like to quote what is called "The Establishment Clause" - "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion..." But, they conveniently forget the next part of the First Anendment, "...or prohibiting the free exercise thereof..."

Dave are you saying that religious people can't apply for government grants? Should we then take out all religious references in the Smithsonian? Are you trying to censor what happened after 9/11? Just because you don't agree with what some religious people did after 9/11 doesn't give you the right to negate what they did. As soon as you limit, because of government involvement, when and where someone can prey or practice their religion you are using the government to prohibit the free exercising thereof. Just as the government has no business tell you when to practice or not practice religion, neither is it any of yours.

Sigh...,

My take on Personal Responsibility again.

Note: This is a repost of one of my first posts. I have edited it and placed somethings in bold.

     What is Personal Responsibility? To me these words mean taking ownership of ones own actions. I will not expect nor is it anyone else’s duty to take care of me! I will not whine or blame others if things do not go as I plan.

The first responsibility of the individual is to oneself, now this might sound selfish to some, but if you think about it; it’s really not. If you take care of yourself first you’re not a burden on your family, society or anyone else, and you can help others in times of need. Now this doesn’t mean putting yourself first at the expense of others.

Let me give you an order of importance to the responsibilities in your life. Your first responsibility is to your self then family, friends, acquaintances, local community and the world at large.

Now you might be asking why family isn’t first. Let’s say you put your family first and give everything to the family. Say a family member needs some money, so you just go into debt to get the money, because you’re not worried about yourself. Now you get so far in debt that you can’t pay your own bills. You are now a burden to your family.

If you had kept your responsibility to yourself in minded, and said, “How can I help this family member support himself, so we can both prosper?” You would be keeping this principle in mind.

So, if the individual is strong then our families, friends, acquaintances, the local community and the world at large will be strong.

Now there are things that happen that are out of our control. Let’s say, a natural disaster comes along and destroys my house. It’s not everyone responsibility to insure that I get my life back exactly like it was before. It is my responsibility to plan for the future and part of that future is uncertainty and Mother-Nature. It’s my responsibility to ask myself, “What could happen and what should I do if it does?” and plan accordantly.

We can band together to help each other start over, but it’s not mandatory. I do believe in teamwork. You wouldn’t ask a teammate to do something and then stand around doing nothing with your handout? Teams work together to accomplish something for the benefit of the group. If, you do have to accept someone’s help don’t fall into the trap of always relying on others. You should try to do things yourself first and if you really can’t do something then ask for help; while still doing what you can yourself. You will be surprised at what you can accomplish on your own. No freeloading, after you recover from what ever you needed help with pay those who helped you back in full; plus a little extra. There should be no free rides.

If you do rely on the government and others to take care of you, you are weakening are society, because you will put-off doing things waiting for someone else to take care of them.

So, if something bad happens pick your self up, dust yourself off and start building your life over.
There are no guaranties in life, so plan accordingly.
