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."

George Washington’s Farewell Address


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.
[The World Book Encyclopedia]
A USA Silver ten cent coin, bore the imprint of a lily on one side, and the figure of Franklin D. Roosevelt (USA Pres. 1933-1945) on the other side (Dime).

50 Percent of The Revenue Is The Middle Class - The Real Target!

Some of The Remarks flying around.  
Can't believe President Obama said this? 
Yes We Can!

"Just as our economy is really starting to recover and we’re starting to see optimistic signs, and we’ve seen actually some upside statistics from a whole range of areas including housing, now is not the time for more self-inflicted wounds — certainly not those coming from Washington.  And there’s so much more work to be done in this country — on jobs and on incomes, education and energy.  We’re a week away from one of the worst tragedies in memory, so we’ve got work to do on gun safety, a host of other issues.  These are all challenges that we can meet.  They’re all challenges that we have to meet if we want our kids to grow up in an America that’s full of opportunity and possibility, as much opportunity and possibility as the America that our parents and our grandparents left for us.

But we’re only going to be able to do it together.  We’re going to have to find some common ground.  And the challenge that we’ve got right now is that the American people are a lot more sensible and a lot more thoughtful and much more willing to compromise, and give, and sacrifice, and act responsibly than their elected representatives are.  And that’s a problem."

He really referred to gun safety? 
He really said that the American People are much more Willing to Compromise, and Give, and Sacrifice?
Gun Safety? Really? I thought they were making a stink about Gun Control!
These are conflicting signals from these who would try and tell us that they Support the Constitution. And they are going to try and tell us that we have to Compromise, and Give, and Sacrifice!
If the Rich are the 2 percent, and that amount will not fund the Government but for a couple of Months, and the takers are the 47 percent (Which Romney let the Cat out of the Bag), then the 'Real Money' (Revenue) is controlled by the 'Middle Class', about 50 percent, which is the Real Target-yea, they are putting a Bulls-eye on the Middle Class, but telling the uneducated/uninformed that they are taking from the Rich - fuuweee! 

The most powerful weapon known to mankind is the 'Power of Suggestion', and golly-Olly, are they trying to use it ON US!

I am SO glad you wrote on this...I heard him say some of that and was outraged. I can't listen to him much anymore because I've never quite heard any president SO derisive and dismissive of fully half of this country which is Republican.
You see, he's painted the picture for about six years now that the GOP just don't get it, they don't care about people, they only want to be richer than the poor and they hate women and the needy. How the heck did Romney get the huge amount of votes he DID get with that constant negativity and dishonesty from a sitting president ( compliments of his mentor,Axelband)?

He HATES THE RIGHT and he has done a fabulous job of spreading the hate...and dividing our country.
And yes, wouldn't you think he'd focus on the financial problems before he talks GUNS? He has a commission already in place with Biden as the head of it..within 4 days of the tragedy!

Yet, he's in overdrive blaming Republicans that they aren't responsible?

Useless meaningless platitudes is all you get from liberal politicians. It's all they and all their supporters think they understand.

They can't tell you the truth about their agenda so what else is there.

We're on a path man. I'm not going to spend a lot of time agonizing over it, but rather insulate myself from it as much as I can. This is what 'the country' wants. Let em have it in spades.

The repubs are useless, so what's left.

Have a great Christmas ! :)

Frustrating. Obama has planned to go "over the cliff" all along and the fools who voted for him don't know what they're in for.

On a lighter note...wishing you and yours a Blessed Christmas and all the best in 2013.

Have a grand New Year's celebration!

I am not giving up-
the Homeschool movement is growing-thus- producing young people who can 'think'
it only took 56 bold freedom lovers to form and sign the Declaration of Independence!
