Happy 4th of July!

Post image for Happy 4th of July!

by W.F. Price on July 4, 2012

I’ve got the kids, and am taking the boy fishing before going to my uncle’s place for a big fireworks show. Hope everyone’s enjoying themselves.

In the meanwhile, we should remember and reflect upon the founding document of the United States, as it is very relevant to our present situation:

IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.

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 harrass 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 benefits 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 Brittish 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.

With Roberts’s abortion of a ruling, I’m moved to read through Thomas Paine’s The American Crisis.

These are the times that try men’s souls: The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.

‎”By today’s standards King George III was a very mild tyrant indeed. He taxed his American colonists at a rate of only pennies per annum. His actual impact on their personal lives was trivial. He had arbitrary power over them but…it was seldom exercised. If you compare his rule with that of today’s US Government you have to wonder why we even celebrate our independence.”

A happy 4th of July to all you Americans (yes, even the Gender-Raunch guy).

I’m not even American and I know the first part of that document from memory because it not only describes what a government should provide for it’s citizens but also where a government derives it’s legitimacy from. This is something we seldom got to question in Europe because the legitimacy of our governments was either derived from the birth of some inbred sovereign or imposed by some foreign power. Even in a lot of European philosophy the concept of the legitimate state or government isn’t brought into question.

I am instructed by my Lord North as Prime Minister for and on behalf of his late Majesty and as his duly authorised representative in Cyber-space to accept your purported Declaration as an act of treason and tantamount to a Declaration of War, and I am instructed further by His Majesty to advise that Great Britain do do not accept even one item therein to be either accurate or as you so amusingly put it self-evident; as neither do our loyal friends the Iroqous, certain other Native Americans and indeed many of our loyal colonists, for it is clear that you have been foolishly pushed into this reckless course of action which will only end in the horror of Feminism by those turncoats the French who we will deal with at Waterloo. If we don’t win in 1776 we will return in 1812 and if that doesn’t work you’ll just have to miss our glorious and rain-sodden Jubilee in 2012. Be it on your own heads.

At the risk of coming off as a conspiracy nut (which is far preferable to it being the truth), the first article I linked followed the exact same format.

“TWO men who allegedly tried..”
“The men were part of a six-strong gang”
“..the men, all aged between 20 and 36″
“The men were reported to be Uighurs..”

One of the reasons innocent men and boys are being harassed and persecuted by American law enforcement, is because even false allegations of rape and domestic violence mean more billable man hours for american law enforcement.
A false allegation of rape (even the most silliest and absurd) can mean anywhere from 1000 to 20000 dollars in overtime pay for the officers involved, and just bill it to VAWA.

Indeed. Americans appear to have chosen to embrace the Australian method of control and authoritarianism. It began when you took up our stupid seatbelt laws, and the rot finally became officially certified whenyou took up our stupid DUI laws, and you set in train a progression of decay from which there might be no escape. And you missed the most important lesson of all – there is only one thing to learn from Australia… and that is how NOT to be. Welcome to the heart and soul of the penal colony with a smiley face.

Since we’re essentially your younger sibling who tries to ape everything you do.

I disagree. Neither culture really understands the other, and we finish projecting our own cultures in interpreting our experiences.

Americans really haven’t a clue what Australia stands for, and so they come here making ridiculous assumptions depending on which side of the political spectrum they’re from. If they’re liberals, they’ll resonate with the groupthink, but they’ll be drawn to Australia because they’ve misunderstood its populism, its predisposition to collectivism, and its obsession with hedonism – it will never occur to Americans that “easy-going” is simply a means of constraining conversation within “safe” boundaries because it clearly defines the terms of social discourse. If they’re conservatives, they’ll be drawn to Australia because they’ve misunderstood the neocon-flavoured entitlement backgrounds of the Murdochs and the blue-rinse elite, or they’ve misunderstood the symbols associated with police presence and the bogan (redneck) culture. Sometimes you see it written in their faces, that vague, distant look that says, “I’m really not getting this.” And I know that they never will.

Of course something analogous, but quite different, happens to Australians going to America. Coming from Australian culture where getting along with others is the primary directive, American directness (at least that of Old America) has generally tended to unsettle Australians. With a long tradition of populism and egalitarianism, Australians have always been inclined to conflate confidence with arrogance, and the pejorative “up themselves” is the predictable, time-honoured retort.

@ Trollking

Very interesting article you linked. Reading the entire article is very revealing as to who it is written for and why.

From the article:

“Young men have traditionally been an anchor for a car-focused culture. Since World War II, guys have traditionally been identified with their vehicles. The automobile has represented a path to independence, an enhanced peer status and adventurous road trips. Boys dreamed of what model their first car would be and referred to other guys by the types of cars they drove. Social boundaries were defined by who had access to wheels and who rode with them. Think of your favorite James Dean movie or the TV show Happy Days.”

Here we have many of the basic errors feminisism makes in describing males and why they could never predict that men would drive less or that we would raise our children quite well on our own, no female required.

Interestingly, in reading feminist research on males they always assume that males will “increase mating numbers to increase passing on their genes”, an assumption as asssinine as assuming we are all James Dean.

And using James Dean as an example shows that organized femininsm is primarily supported by increasing blue tinged haired old ladies.

The age of baby boomers born in 1945 today is 67 and the average life span of females is about 78 so within 10 years these “constituents” will no longer exist.

But men ensnared by the system they created will continue to represent at least 25% of the population ( to all you professional political advisors reading this).

I couldn’t make out from that article whether it was men who never had a license or men who currently have licenses. Perhaps men just get their licenses revoked more like for not paying child support. It appears that the biggest decline is in the 30-34 age group where it is likely that he is divorced and ordered to pay support. Nevertheless, men in all age groups are more likely to have their license revoked for the same offenses as those committed by females.

My favorite idiocy in Obamacare is that, as I understand it, employers are exempted from providing health insurance for part time workers, anyone working less than 25 hours per week.

Soooooooo…….anyone want to guess what the primary effect of Obamacare will be?

And then there’s the fact that companies with 49 or fewer employees are exempt from Obamacare. The cost of hiring that 50th employee’s going to be a real bitch.

My favorite idiocy in Obamacare is that, as I understand it, employers are exempted from providing health insurance for part time workers, anyone working less than 25 hours per week.

There are so many chinks in it, custom made for disasterous unintended consequences, that I can’t list them all here. The bill was drafted by White House staff (Valerie Jarrett), HHS (Kathryn Sebilus), several Democrat Congressmen/women (Nancy Pelosi) and health insurance industry lobbyists/consultants. Health care providers and actual patients/the consumers were not asked to participate.

The biggest issue with Obamacare is that it’s so complex, contrived and Byzantine, that no one understands the first thing about it, even our own politicians. FORCING everyone to buy health insurance will NOT make health care more AFFORDABLE!

But note as well that it took years of meetings and circulating leaflets before there was a consensus for revolution and the Declaration of Independence. There was an ‘Independence Movement’ first, starting about the time of the end of the French and Indian War (1763).

On not-getting-a-driver’s-license …
MUCH of this is due to the attitude that “somebody will drive me” when they need to do something.
Why pay for gas, taxes on the vehicle, insurance, car payments and repairs? These people have had others carry their books since they were four years old.
They will howl in outrage when SOMEONE doesn’t “do this” for them.
They honestly do not perceive the need. They have not been taught.

Wouldn’t blame it on entitlement so quickly. Burdensome licensing requirements are added every year for teenagers (what good is a license if you can’t take out girls at night, or that will be revoked the first time you hit a speed trap?), and as the government prints money the cost of vehicles becomes unaffordable. Also wonder if parents are less supportive of boys driving since they are “dangerous” while driving themselves is a way for girls to be “safer”

Driving. Having just been through this, my state requires a parent or other licensed driver to spend a minimum of 50 logged hours in the car with the learner driver. 50 hours. Doesn’t sound too bad until you try it.

Then there’s graduated licensing. The new driver pretty much can’t carry passengers until they’re 18.

Last and most importantly, having a car is not the prerequisite for sex that it was 30 years ago. Moral standards are looser, opportunities are broader, fewer teenage girls have fathers around.

Well, then – the mrm is certainly off to a fine start of committee discussions.

On that note, here’s a reminder of what the current occupants of the White House think of our country: “All this for a damn flag.”

She probably spells it VEXillology because she finds it that irritating.

Remember how HER OWN HOMETOWN of Chicago wanted the 2016 Summer Olympics? I think that bitch would have seizures if the 2016 Summer Olympics was scheduled to take place in Chicago, given that during the Opening Ceremonies all the NOCs display their respective flags.

Wow, what a bitch of a First “Lady.”

In the interest of full disclosure, I’ve looked at that video several times and it’s not clear to me that’s what she said. The problem for Michelle is that many people will believe it because that sentiment is consistent with what we know about her attitude towards the USA (e.g. first time proud). This particular video, though, may just be a right-wing smear.

We do know for sure, however, there are no Jeffersonians currently in the White House.

I watched the link and the original news clip: that does seem to be what she’s saying.

It would have been cool if Obama and turned and told her: ‘Then make yourself useful and bring me some lemonade. It’s hot out here.’

Somehow, though, I think if he’d said that, this video clip would have gotten quite a bit more airtime…

We have the internet now and don’t need to ride to secret meetings at roadside taverns on horseback these days. I know it’s less fun, but much more productive and efficient.

@Firepower-

One thing you also have to understand is that every single post HERE, in your vaunted ‘easy communication zones’ is being carefully screened and vetted by a variety of law enforcement ‘professionals’.

If you really believe that this place is anything resembling ‘secret’ the way those original revolutionary counsels were, you are a fool.

Whatever we are doing, we HAVE to do by ourselves, because surveillance has gotten so pervasive that it is impossible to organize and say anything ‘anti government’ without the vast majority winding up in jail and the rest being informants.

Do you REALLY think you are anonymous? I use a convoluted set of ip spoofs to keep myself out of the loop, but I am STILL positive that if I said something too provocative, such as advocating eliminating a certain powerful traitor and his sidekick, either I or the site owner and I would be in jail within a week.

The fact is, the internet of today is the WORST possible way to keep things secret or to keep yourself from being gathered up with other dissidents at guantanamo bay and ‘tortured until organ failure’.

While I personally have NO compunction about dying violently for a cause, I want it to be MEANINGFUL. I am no Thomas Ball, I would have set the courthouse on fire and then took out as many cops as possible while I set myself on fire.

Even the american revolution had powerful foreign support. Our chances of getting any serious changes made in the government are absolutely nil because all the OTHER potential allies are in much the same fix as we are.

There is NO place to have privacy, purposely. even those nutty afghans have caves and shit in the desert. There is literally no place in america, this huge country, where you can go off and grow half a dozen plants for your own personal use without getting caught, let alone secretly organize a successful insurrection.

Tell you what, you come up with a way of organizing people across the united states without wasting them, and I will help you get the red-pill bodies to do some serious activism.

Do you love me enough to come to Salt Lake City and march in speedos, in freezingly cold november weather with a sign that says ‘creepwalk! taking back the word creep and the right to do stupid self-destructive things without fear of the natural results of my stupidity!”?

Heh, I am actually serious about this. And the reason for salt lake is that it’s one of the few cities in the world where people might actually get the joke and understand it’s significance. There’s a reason the slutwalk never materialized there.

Although… maybe november 5th would be too stupid even for me.

If so, and it scares you into inaction, you have already lost.

Plenty of bloggers write words Big Government hates. They thrive. You fear a Gestapo that can’t even keep its gunrunning operations secret, nor its sexcapades hushed during Presidential trips to South America.

If you’re cowed into such fear, take the Blue Pill and be happy forever.
