Sam Adams, more than beer

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquillity of servitude than the animating contest of freedom, — go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen”
Samuel Adams

Lincoln on power

"We must prevent these things being done, by either congresses or courts — The people — the people — are the rightful masters of both Congresses, and courts — not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow the men who pervert it —" Abraham Lincoln

Finally Home

Naomi is out of the hospital and is resting comfortably on the couch. Before we left they showed me how to care for her drain and change the dressing. 4 weeks and she goes to see the Doctor and possibly get the drain out. I guess that is when they will schedule her surgery. It's sure nice to have her home.


The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America

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, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their Public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected, whereby the Legislative Powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.

He has obstructed the Administration of Justice by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers.

He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.

He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil Power.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:

For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:

For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences:

For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these united Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States, that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. — And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.

John Carlson: Nixon would be in awe of Obama

“When the president does it, that means that it’s not illegal.

— President Richard Nixon

John Carlson had a good article in the Register Saturday comparing Watergate to Fast and Furious. He brings up a lot of good points. The similarities between the two criminal operations as to what the Presidents said about executive privilege.

Nixon’s people called their lies “inoperative” statements. Obama’s Justice Department insisted in writing there was no policy to send machine guns to Mexican drug cartels, when of course there was. The blatant lie was discovered and “withdrawn as inaccurate.” No harm, no foul, unless you’re a dead border control agent.

Then there is the fact that Besides Brian Terry, Jamie Zapata, a ICE agent was murdered along with upwards of 300 innocent Mexican citizens. Nobody dies at the Watergate. That alone makes it a hard comparison. Of course the lies are basically the same.

Quoting Nixon again;
“Politics would be a hell of a good business if it weren’t for the goddamned people.”
That’s Nixon again, and Obama might end up agreeing with the 37th president on that one. The voters will be Obama’s judge.

The people that I find amusing are the apologists for Obama and his criminal administration. Most of them are still trying to blame Bush. Operation wide receiver, under Bush, was a joint operation with the Mexican government to try and slow gun trafficking. The weapons were tracked and even had RFID chips in them to aid in the tracking. The Mexicans were told when and where the guns were to cross the border. They lost them right after they crossed and the operation was ended because of the risk of losing guns.

Fast and Furious was conducted without the knowledge of the Mexican government. Since ATF agents can't do anything on the other side of the border, their claim that they were tracking the guns to "higher ups" is a blatant lie.

US attorney Dennis Burke was in charge of the whole operation. This is the Dennis Burke that back in the 90's was one of the actual writers of the failed Clinton assault weapons ban. A ban that h ad absolutely nothing to do with crime reduction. It did make bayonet lugs illegal though. Burke then worked for Janet Napolitano while she was governor of Arizona. He also worked for the Obama campaign and was on Obama's transition team.

Who better to run a operation involving guns than a known gun hater? What could possibly go wrong? There was even a e-mail looking for statistics so they would have "evidence" to force tighter restrictions on gun owners and dealers.

The Obamabots were crying about how Carlson's article was unfair and full of lies. Anyone according to them investigating F&F is conducting a witch hunt and is just trying to smear "The One".

Obama said he didn’t know anything about any of this, then claims executive privilege in withholding Justice Department documents. Executive privilege is primarily used to protect presidential communications. Obama said he didn’t know, so what or who is being protected?

Other than Holder, who is Obama protecting? Maybe he's just covering his own ass. But then you have the deniers crying about how they did nothing wrong and Agent Terry would have been killed any way. That's one hell of a view to have. And it is possible that the events in Peck Canyon could have turned out the same. After all, criminals will get guns one way or another. But the fact is, 2 F&F guns were found and no one has ever explained where the 3rd gun went. The FBI "lost" the 3rd gun so it could not be tested. Maybe because it was carried by one of their paid informants.

IN the good old days of Watergate, the press dogged the story, the truth came out and it ended the Nixon administration. Where is the press now? They have their collective noses buried up Obama's ass and refuse to see anything that might be wrong. Rep. Boehner, if he had any balls, should commission the Sargent at Arms to go get Holder, put him in cuffs and lock him up in the house jail cell until he hands over the documents. Yes, there is a jail cell in the basement of the House.

Hospital update 4

The Doctor was in yesterday and gave us the good news, (insert eye roll here). It seems that after 2 full course of IV antibiotics, the abscess has gotten bigger. Today they are going to install a drain They are talking like she will be discharged Wednesday. Today is day 8 it sure seems longer than that.


Well, I left at 1 to get some lunch. They were3 taking her down to put these drains in. We thought they might try to do this early. Supposedly she gets out tomorrow. At least tonight for dinner she gets real food.

Here's a little hospital humor while we wait.

Two little kids are in a hospital, lying on stretchers next to each other outside the operating room, the first surgeries of the day. The first kid leans over and asks, "What are you in here for?"

The second kid says, "I'm getting my tonsils out, and I'm afraid."

The first kid says, "You've got nothing to worry about. I had that done when I was four.

They put you to sleep, and when you wake up they give you lots of Jell-O and ice cream. It's a breeze."

The second kid then asks, "What are you here for?"

The first kid says, "Circumcision."

"Whoa!" the second kid replies, "Good luck, buddy. I had that done when I was born.

Couldn't walk for a year."

Hospital update 3 Oh hell

We thought that today would be going home day. The Doctor has decided that she will be there 1 or 2 more days. Another CAT scan this afternoon and more antibiotics. Hopefully she'll get sprung tomorrow.

Idiots who voted for Obama

Here is why this country is headed down the toilet. I couldn't believe these people.

I like Jon Voight. He makes more sense than any 10 liberal Hollywood types.
