Pope Pius IX And The Confederacy

"One of the most overlooked facts of the American Civil War Era is the sympathy the South gained from Europe's most influential monarch - the pope of Rome.

Pope Pius IX never actually signed any kind of alliance or 'statement of support' with the Confederate States of America, but to those who understand the nuance of papal protocol, what he did do was quite astonishing. He acknowledged President Jefferson Davis as the "Honorable President of the Confederate States of America."

From this we can glean three things about Pope Pius IX..."

Solid Democratic States Falls Sharply Since 2008

Can't imagine why........2008, Hussein elected? Naw........
Democrats lose House

"The number of solidly Democratic states has fallen dramatically since 2008 and every state has seen a decline in the number of residents who identify more with the Democratic Party, a new survey has found.

Gallup found that 14 states could be considered solidly Democratic in 2010, down from 30 in 2008. Over that time span, vastly more states also gained the label of competitive -- with 18 states now holding that designation, up from 10 in 2008."

Happy Tyrant, Socialists, Drunk, Whoremonger, & Abject Failures Day
"Today, along with George Washington, we have chosen to honor the other 43 men who have occupied the office of President. Not all these men deserve to be honored.

Today we choose to honor a tyrant, Abraham Lincoln. Lincoln trampled the Constitution under foot ,to do nothing more than to subjugate the Southern states to the Northern states for their own economic benefit. Most all of our present problems concerning a large and out of control government began with Lincoln."

White House/DNC Disavow Involvement With WI Union Protests: Twitter Busts Them

"Administration officials said Sunday that the White House had done nothing to encourage the demonstrations in Wisconsin — nor was it doing so in Ohio, Florida and other states where new Republican governors are trying to make deep cuts to balance their budgets...

...And, officials and union leaders said, reports of the involvement of the Democratic National Committee — specifically Organizing for America, the grass-roots network born of Mr. Obama’s 2008 campaign — were overblown to start with..."

The Coming Collapse: A Polite, Elderly Robber

"I entirely concur in the propriety of resorting to the sense in which the Constitution was accepted and ratified by the nation. In that sense alone it is the legitimate Constitution. And if that is not the guide in expounding it, there may be no security for a consistent and stable, more than for a faithful exercise of its powers. If the meaning of the text be sought in the changeable meaning of the words composing it, it is evident that the shape and attributes of the Government must partake of the changes to which the words and phrases of all living languages are constantly subject. What a metamorphosis would be produced in the code of law if all its ancient phraseology were to be taken in its modern sense. And that the language of our Constitution is already undergoing interpretations unknown to its founder, will I believe appear to all unbiassed Enquirers into the history of its origin and adoption."
--James Madison, letter to Henry Lee, 1824

The Coming Collapse of the United State

"Get ready for a wave of very polite, awkward robberies as people who lived their entire lives thinking that the government was protecting them find out, one by one, that they have been robbed blind for decades and will be desperate to do anything to get food on their tables for themselves and their families.

"Those who live inside the US may think that things aren't getting that much worse because they live within the system and it happens so incrementally that you may not notice the change. But for someone who only visits once or twice per year it is very obvious just how quickly things are declining.

I return, very happily, back to the freest country in North America, Mexico. At least there when you get stopped by the police you just give them 100 Pesos ($8) and have a good smile and a laugh. And when you leave a bar with your drink in Mexico the only thing you are bound to be confronted with is by some pretty young girl asking you if you'd like a plastic cup with some ice for the road!"

The feeding trough of the hard working American "tax payer" is running dry. You bleed me enough where I can no longer put a roof over my head, food in my stomach, gas to get to work, and etc. ... I'll be coming after you sooner than you expected. I'd rather not survive without the "necessities" ... but I can, and I will.

I suggest you tax feeders get your priorities in line. There are more of us ... than there are of you.

As a cop once told me: "There are no guarantees that any of us will come out of this alive." My response: "Yeah, but why push it?"

Your move tax feeders.

I would suggest that you not push it across the line ... and you are close to the line. As an EMPLOYEE of the PEOPLE, you are not ENTITLED to anything that we are not willing to give you. Ok State and Federal Union THUGS? Your Lords giveth and can taketh away.

After all, it is YOU who are establishing precedents for the rules of engagement."
