The Founders Warned Us About Some One Some Time...Could Be Right About Now.

"The disorders and miseries which result gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual; and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction, more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation on the ruins of public liberty.
It serves always to distract the public councils and feeble the public administration. It agitates the community with ill founded jealousies and false alarms, kindles the animosity of one part against another, foments occasionally riot and insurrection. It opens the door to foreign influence and corruption, which find a facilitated access to the government itself through the channels of party passions.
It is important, likewise, that the habits of thinking in a free country should inspire caution in those entrusted with its administration to confine themselves with in their respective constitutional spheres, avoiding in the exercise of the powers of one department to encroach upon another. The spirit of encroachment tends to consolidate the powers of all departments in one and thus to create, whatever the form of government, a real despotism.
If in the opinion of the people the distribution or modification of the constitutional powers be in any particular wrong, let it be corrected by an amendment in the way which the Constitution designates. But let there be no change by usurpation; for though this, in one instance, may be the instrument of good, it is the customary weapon by which free governments are destroyed."

FLAHR in, the name of a gold coin first made in Florence in the 1200's. The name comes from the Latin word for flower. The florin bore the imprint of a lily on one side, and the figure of Saint John the Baptist on the other side. The first English florin was issued as a six-shilling gold coin in the reign of Edward III (1327-1377). A Silver English florin worth two shillings was first coined in 1849.

Obama Meets With Az. Gov. Brewer

 "My experience is when you talk to a guy like B.P.'s CEO, he's going to say all the right things to me," Obama said. "I'm not interested in words. I'm interested in actions."

Jan Brewer, Arizona governor said Thursday she got few other results from her meeting with the commander-in-chief, including any details about where 1,200 National Guard troops will be deployed along the U.S.-Mexico border. Brewer met with Obama to discuss the state's new law clamping down on illegal immigrants that the White House opposes.

Governor Brewer could have said,  My experience is when you talk to a guy like Pres.Obama, he's going to say all the things he wants to do (Immigration Reform), not necessarily all the right things to me. I'm not interested in words. I'm interested in actions.

The Dems always tell everybody how to act, what to say and such; all the while they are doing the same thing. Amazing how the people do not call them on it.

Libs are all about 'do as I say', From al gore to the king of BS - obama, there is not a one of them that measures up.

Like when he was campaigning he said, the French can speak English and all we can say is Merci Beucoups

If I had been there I'd have shouted out the question 'Do You speak any Spanish or French?' Course not.
Then the obamabots probably would have killed me on the spot.

For Everything they criticized and made up about Bush, obama is all that and much more to the 10th power. They know it but they don't care. They somehow think obama is going to provide the manifestation of all their childish dreams.
