George Washington, Profit or hopeless romantic?

By on Sep 23, 2017

In 1789 as George Washington reluctantly became our first President he wrote a 70 page inaugural address which was never used. In it Washington expresses his faith in the American people and their ability to judge good leaders: “until the people of America shall have lost all virtue; until they shall have become totally insensible to the difference between freedom & slavery; until they shall have been reduced to such poverty of spirit–as to be willing to sell that preeminent blessing, the birthright of Freemen, for a mess of pottage; in short, until they shall have been found incapable of governing themselves and ripe for a master those consequences, I think, can never arrive…” George was nothing if not wise. The prescience shown by the string of “untils” demonstrates his knowledge of the character of man. Now, a pessimist would argue those...

At the funeral for Dick Gregory, maxine waters, I would say made a fool of herself but, she was just being herself so I really can’t say that. Much more disturbing, however, than the ranting of someone who should really seek professional help is the behavior of the crowd. All I can ask is, WHAT IS WRONG WITH THESE PEOPLE? The video is more than amazing. Why don’t they get her some help? While we should pray for maxine let us take some solace though. Maxine has become very popular and is now, at 79 (why are all democrat “leaders” older than dirt? Very telling in itself.), a very prominent face and a prominent spokesperson for the democrat party so, on one hand we should hope she gets the help she needs but, on the other hand,  we should encourage her to keep it up. The destruction these fossils who came of age in the 60’s are doing to the democrat party...

Accidental Truth.

This is quite unexpected, a real piece of journalism from Time magazine though I am quite certain the author does not know what he is actually communicating just as I am quite sure the dems quoted don’t realize what they are actually saying. The entire article linked above is worth reading but here are just a few of the examples proving neither the author or the dems know what they are doing. The author first cites these stats, “when Clinton seemed to be coasting toward the White House and demographic change fueled dreams of a permanent national majority… eight months into the Trump presidency, the party looks to face its toughest odds since Ronald Reagan won 49 states in 1984. The Democrats are in their deepest congressional rut since the class of 1946 was elected, and hold the fewest governors’ mansions–15–since 1922. Of the 98 partisan...

Ask yourself this, WHY

is the US constitution the longest lasting constitution, the longest lasting agreement of government of all time.? Simple, it is the only governmental document that is an AGREEMENT. It is the only document ever created that adheres to it’s first three words, WE THE PEOPLE. Did you know that? On this 225th anniversary of the second greatest document ever written isn’t it time you LEARNED what it says? Of course, you would do even better learning what the first greatest document ever written says. To be continued.

Stupid cannot be fixed by stupider.

Here is the big picture in this story – 8 year olds do not their ass from a hole in the ground and if the coach and the parents don’t know that they should all be relieved of their duty. BELLEVILLE, Ill. – Every player on the Cahokia Quarterback Club football team (8 and under) took a knee during the national anthem ahead of Sunday’s game at Little Devil’s Field in Belleville. “One of the kids asked me if I saw (people) protesting and rioting in St. Louis. I said yes; I said, ‘Do you know why they are doing it?’” said Coach Orlando Gooden. Coach Gooden said his player responded, “Because black people are getting killed and nobody’s going to jail.” Gooden, who played football at Mizzou, said the kids knew about the Jason Stockley decision. “I felt like it was a good teaching moment for me to circle the team and have a meeting,” he said. The coach said he...
