Thomas Jefferson Quotes

God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty.... And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to the facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure.

- Thomas Jefferson

Sometimes it is said that man cannot be trusted with the government of himself. Can he, then, be trusted with the government of others?

- Thomas Jefferson

Of liberty I would say that, in the whole plenitude of its extent, it is unobstructed action according to our will. But rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add “within the limits of the law,” because law is often but the tyrant’s will, and always so when it violates the right of an individual.

- Thomas Jefferson

This Message is for Independents

And, I'm not talkin about the Firefly Brown Coats, but the independent's that voted for Obama and our now bitching about it.

What the f'n hell did you expect, with a past and record like his?

Figure out what you believe and vote accordingly. None of this wishy washy back and forth crap.

No more making decisions in the moment on how you feel. Let's start making them on principles and convictions. This will lead to a better consistency of results.

As the saying goes, "Those that stand for nothing will fall for anything."

This is Genius!!!!

Or, I should say Glenn Becks a genius.

"Declaration of Rights & Responsibilities

Thus, we the people do hereby declare not only our rights, but do now establish this bill of responsibilities.

1. Because I have the right to choose, I recognize that I am accountable to God and have the responsibility to keep the 10 commandments in my own life.

2. Because I have the right to worship as I choose, I have the responsibility to honor the right of others to worship as they see fit.

3. Because I have freedom of speech, I have the responsibility to defend the speech of others, even if I strongly disagree with what they’re saying.

4. Because I have the right to pursue happiness, I have the responsibility to show humility and express gratitude for all the blessings I enjoy and the rights I’ve been given.

5. Because I have the right to honest and good government I will seek out honest and just representatives when possible. If I cannot find one then I accept the responsibility to take that place.

6. Because I have the God given right to liberty, I have the personal responsibility to have the courage to defend others to be secure in their persons, lives and property.

7. Because I have the right to equal justice, I will stand for those who are wrongly accused or unjustly blamed.

8. Because I have the right to knowledge, I will be accountable for myself and my children’s education…to live our lives in such a way that insures the continuation of truth.

9. Because I have the right to pursue my dreams and keep the fruits of my labor, I have the responsibility to feed, protect and shelter my family, the less fortunate, the fatherless, the old and infirm.

10. Because I have a right to the truth, I will not bear false witness nor will not stand idly by as others do.

Unconditionally, while maintaining my responsibility to compassionately yet fiercely stand against those things that decay the natural rights of all men. And for the support of this declaration, and with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence we mutually pledge to each other our lives, fortunes and sacred honor."


Sometimes Glenn Beck just hits one right out of the park.

Go here for the full and complete declaration.

A Response to Buffett and Obama from Harvey Golub.

"Before you 'ask' for more tax money from me and others, raise the $2.2 trillion you already collect each year more fairly and spend it more wisely. Then you'll need less of my money."

- Harvey Golub
Wall Street Journal, 8/22 as discussed on the show The Five, on FOX News.

There are lots people that would love to have your jobs Verizon 'Workers', so quit whining about you needing to take a pay cut and needing to contribute a little more into your pensions.

Dreamy goodness....

If Peter Thiel builds it, I would be their in a heart beat.

If you look over at my side bar under OTHER SITES AND BLOGS OF INTEREST, you will see a link labeled "What if 2?" this will take you to the Seasteading Institute.

I'm more interested though in the single or multi-family level steading than the big island concept, but interesting stuff ether-way.

I would like to think we can save this great country, but "what if?"

Hmmm...,

Dale Fout makes me wonder even if this country can be saved?

Dale Fout you are an inconsiderate ass.

Linked story here.

We are so f'd, Greece move over...

....the big dog wants a seat at the table.

This was the test and we failed it.

I'm not going to be posting much for the foreseeable future. I need to focus on tiding up & insuring my house in order.

John Boehner just had no confidence in the Tea Party or the American public. The Dems are going to tie that bill around his neck and take us all down with it. From what I understand of the bill the trigger that's supposed to keep the Dems on the committee in line is that they're supposed to care about the medical providers losing money in medicare. WTF Boehner! They the Dems already cut 500 billion from them in the stimulus bill. Boehner, What make you think they want hold up the process, or use the threat of the defense spending cuts to raise our taxes?

Boehner you just negotiated away the high ground,just because you feared we would blame you and the GOP instead of Obama.... sigh......

See you all on the other side,
Josh

Man Crush Alert!

fuzzys dad over at his blog Musings of a Vast Right-Winger brought a video of Sen. Rubio to my attention.

The post is here.

I think I have a man crush on Sen. Rubio.

:-)
Josh

P.s. fuzzys dad's got a good blog going there and is well worth a read.

The Art of Compromise as practiced in Congress.

There's a man who thinks he can fly. To prove that he can he plans on jumping off a 50 story building. His friend thinks he's crazy, so he yells up to him, "I'll jump with you if you meet me halfway."

:-)
Josh

P.s. to the last post.

If you made plans requiring this new car without making a back up plan in the event I can't follow though on said car, at worst you're an idiot; at best you were being naive.
