This 4th of July, The American Catholic has put into words, ever so eloquently, the true meaning of the day.  http://the-american-catholic.com/2010/07/04/time-god-and-the-declaration-of-independence/  A happy 4th of July to all.

“We are destined for Eternity but in this life we live in Time, which consists of the temporal trinity of past, present and future.   The present consists of an often confusing series of disparate events, while the future is a deep mystery to us all.  When we recall the past we try to make sense of it all, giving order in our mind and our recollections to what has happened to us individually and collectively.

When we look back at the events leading up to the Declaration of Independence from our vantage point of 234 years in the future, everything seems neat and orderly, an old story that we recall from school, books, television and films.  Perhaps to some of us it seems a bit trite and boring.  Such was not the way it all appeared to the Founding Fathers.  For them it was their present, and a chaotic present it must have seemed.  On July 3, 1776 the day before the Declaration was adopted by the Continental Congress, a huge British army of some 30,000 men, all regular troops and superbly equipped, began landing on Staten Island.  To oppose them, Washington could only gather together an army of 10,000, many of them untrained militia.  In the ensuing campaign, Washington’s army would be beaten time and again, often coming close to destruction.  The British would seize New York City, holding it until the end of the war in 1783.  So it went throughout the Revolution, with the patriots fighting an uphill battle against the mightiest empire since the fall of Rome.  At the end of the war, Washington made this observation:

“A contemplation of the compleat attainment (at a period earlier than could have been expected) of the object for which we contended against so formidable a power cannot but inspire us with astonishment and gratitude. The disadvantageous circumstances on our part, under which the war was undertaken, can never be forgotten. The singular interpositions of Providence in our feeble condition were such, as could scarcely escape the attention of the most unobserving; while the unparalleled perseverance of the Armies of the U States, through almost every possible suffering and discouragement for the space of eight long years, was little short of a standing miracle.”

Such statements as that made by Washington, that the Americans relied upon God in their hour of peril, were not rare in the Revolution.  This was symbolized in the “An Appeal to Heaven” flags frequently used by Americans during the Revolution:

One of the reasons we study the past is to help guide our footsteps as we proceed into that unknown land, the future.  The Revolution of course is a prime example that the future is always a product of what we do in the present.  The Declaration is a brilliant statement of why the Americans were fighting.  It would have just been another forgotten piece of paper, however, without the endless efforts of the patriots who fought a lopsided war to make the Independence proclaimed in the Declaration a reality.  The patriots realized however that if they depended only upon their own efforts, they labored in vain.  During the war petitions to God were unceasing, including a Proclamation of the Continental Congress in 1777 which called for a national day of prayer on December 18th:

It is therefore recommended to the legislative or executive powers of these United States, to set apart Thursday, the 18th day of December next, for solemn thanksgiving and praise; that with one heart and one voice the good people may express the grateful feelings of their hearts, and consecrate themselves to the service of their divine benefactor; and that together with their sincere acknowledgments and offerings, they may join the penitent confession of their manifold sins, whereby they had forfeited every favor, and their humble and earnest supplication that it may please God, through the merits of Jesus Christ, mercifully to forgive and blot them out of remembrance; that it may please him graciously to afford his blessings on the governments of these states respectively, and prosper the public council of the whole; to inspire our commanders both by land and sea, and all under them, with that wisdom and fortitude which may render them fit instruments, under the providence of Almighty God, to secure for these United States the greatest of all blessings, independence and peace; that it may please him to prosper the trade and manufactures of the people and the labor of the husbandman, that our land may yield its increase; to take schools and seminaries of education, so necessary for cultivating the principles of true liberty, virtue and piety, under his nurturing hand, and to prosper the means of religion for the promotion and enlargement of that kingdom which consisteth in righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost.

Men who are struggling in the present to build a future, do well always to seek the assistance of God who reigns for Eternity.  John Adams saw it that way when he wrote to his wife Abigail after the resolution declaring America independent was passed by the Continental Congress on July 2, 1776:

But the Day is past. The Second Day of July 1776, will be the most memorable Epocha, in the History of America.

 I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated, by succeeding Generations, as the great anniversary Festival. It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance by solemn Acts of Devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more.”

God Bless America.

Voter turnout for election was far greater than what was projected.  Clearly the words and opinions of Glen Beck, Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity have been heard.  The path of destruction under democratic party leadership has been derailed, as Republicans are on the rebound with victory  in key states.

As an election judge at our local polls, turnout was better than 50% in our precinct.  Previously a poll observer, this was the first time I have worked as an official.  I have to tell you, props go to ACORN for finding ways to deceive and influence an election because the sanctity of the voting process in our state is as tight as a flea’s ass.   Double and triple checking of id’s, addresses, etc., pissed of one out of thousands of voters.  The machines worked, the ballots were in English and all was fine.

Dropping off the votes was almost like pulling into a FEMA camp with tight security.  Do not exit your vehicle, hand over the master record of the votes, open your trunk for an officer to remove the voting materials, sign here that you verify everything is on the up and up.  Rather an intimidating and successful means of participating in the democracy that makes this nation great.

Congratulations to the winners.  More importantly congratulations to the voters for taking the time to speak out loud and clear in the voting booth against the gross injustices that the democrats have procured upon the United States of America.

Getting a bit personal in advance of election day.  I recall an uncle complaining he had jury duty when I was a teenager.  I got in his face and said it is what you need to do as an American, even though he had already served in the military.  He got out of it somehow.  He is now dead, but the story sticks in my craw.  I have had jury duty twice now and while it is no fun, it is my duty.  In the end, God will  judge us all. 

Tomorrow being election day it is not only my duty to vote,  but my privilege for the first time  to work the election polls as an Associate Judge.  I will swear to uphold the integrity of everyone’s vote.  Our state  pays me to do this, which I personally find abominable, and will probably end up donating the roughly $100.

I would work the polls for for free.  I am blessed to live in the land of the free and the home of the brave.  It is the least I can do for my country, state and neighbors.  Republican, Democrat , Independent, Christian, Jew, Muslim or whatever- on election day, and what should be every day, we are Americans.  

BTW, our ballots are all in the English language! 

While our soldiers fight for democracy in Iraq and Afghanistan to protect what the Obama Administration calls “The Homeland,” I still call it The United States of America.  For all the U.S.A. stands for, this election day I will serve my country by sitting in a hard metal chair for more than 13 hours to ensure the integrity and privilege  the public to vote.  I will then escort the sealed ballots to their destination for counting, go home, greet my family to explain to the little ones why I wasn’t home for dinner and watch the election returns on Fox. 

The least you can do is VOTE.

999nasty

Nine hundred and ninety-nine is the natural number following following nine hundred ninety-eight and preceding one thousand. It is also a  Kaprekar number. For example, 999 is a Kaprekar number for base 10, because 999² = 998001, which can be split into 998 and 001, and 998 + 001 = 999.  It is also the largest 3 digit whole number in base 10. The Year 999 (CMXCIX) was a common year of the Julian Calendar. 

Seeing as the Devil is a sneaky deceiver, will 999,  September 9, 2009 be a day of prophecy?  999 upside down is 666. 
 
Someone in the Netherlands has come up with World Interconnectedness Day on 999, saying, http://www.interconnectedness090909.org/  “090909 in every country at 9 AM in every time zone (starting in New Zealand), all people who are aware of interconnectedness and who are committed to translate that awareness into action are invited to practice interconnectedness as much as possible throughout that day.”

“At 9AM (local time) churches, mosques, synagogues all around the world proclaim for 9 minutes to remind every human being, that we all share this planet and time,-that we all need to care for each other and reach out to each other,-no matter what culture, religion, age, gender, colour, tribe, political party, economic status we have. We all need each other.”

http://999itstime.org/ offers more liberal crap saying “we are in a state of emergency- socially, economically and ecologically” so please put aside 9 minutes of your time on 999 Day to join us in taking the following three actions, which should take approximately 3 minutes each. 1. Switch to green energyhttp://www.realpeoplepower.org/ . 2. Cut your emissions 10% and join up with 10:10 movement http://www.1010uk.org/ . 3.  Plant a tree. http://www.tree-nation.com/

Gag me. I don’t want to be connected, and I am tired of  America being relied upon to save the world.  How many zillions of dollars and manpower have been spent in other nations- including Muslim ones, only to have shoes thrown at our President and public displays of America’s Flag burning?  How many nations relied upon the blood of American Soldiers in history?  In this New World Order we keep hearing about, President Obama better wake up to the fact that we need to make America, America’s priority. 

Even under a State of Public Emergency,  thanks to the H1N1 Novel Swine Flu Pandemic- America’s borders remain open.  Ellis Island and The Statue of Liberty have welcomed millions through the department of immigration while others cross an invisible border to scourge America’s resources illegally.  The War on Drugs, The War on Terror- mostly due to the failure of America to protect itself. 

NAFTA, Free Trade, Free access to loot America.  Put your little pinky toe over the border illegally, and it should get shot off with out spending my tax dollars.  No free rides to take you to the best hospitals in the world either.

From Prison Planet – “The deaths we inflict and the pain and suffering we bring to others are merely collateral damage on the bloody path to American hegemony.” http://www.prisonplanet.com/us-hypocrisy-astonishes-the-world.html Fukc you too.  Don’t like being in the greatest country on earth?  Get the fukc out and go live in Afghanistan for awhile. 

People of all nations immigrate to the greatest land in the world because they are free.  The assault of 911, when bastards hijacked airplanes and tried to hijack American values still did not assail the fortitude of the American people.  How many people are opting to disavow US Citizenship? Good riddance to those who do- like the President of American Greetings who just moved to Israel.  Here’s an American Greeting for ya, don’t let the door hit you in the ass.

While 911 is the emergency dialing code in the U.S., and the date intentionally chosen to murder thousands of people,  999 is the emergency phone number in the U.K. One must have some concern for the possibility of another attack from Al Qaeda or some other whacko terrorist group.

With chaos raining and an order grounding all flight travel in the U.S after 911, “With the help of the FBI, the Saudis and the bin Laden family chartered an aircraft to pick up family members in Los Angeles, Orlando, and Washington, D.C. The bin Laden plane then flew the relatives to Boston, where — one week after the attacks — the group left Logan Airport bound for Jeddah.http://www.nationalreview.com/york/york091102.asp

Rest assured that there are members of the  bin Laden family who would not hesitate take advantage of 999.  The National Review at the time went on to note, “That family had been looked at very, very carefully in the two-year period leading up to September 11,” after the al Qaeda bombings of American embassies in East Africa, said retired CIA official Vince Cannistraro.”

Whether 999 is an auspicious omen or not, remains to be seen.  Rather than succumbing to the the bullshit indoctrination of  “Think Globally act Locally” you can visit an old fashioned sideshow on tour featuring several live human oddities at http://www.999eyes.com/

The band 999 http://www.nineninenine.net/ has some interesting sounds. Photo props to them from a cd cover. 

“Number nine. Number nine. Number nine.”The repetitive refrain from one of The Beatles’ most mind-bending journeys into psychedelia “Revolution 9,” the audio pastiche from “The White Album” is now serving as the backbeat of a big day for the biggest band in rock ‘n’ roll history http://showbiz.peacefmonline.com/news/200909/26174.php

For a thrill, there is the 999 probably the best streetbike Ducati has ever produced. http://www.motorcycle-usa.com/101/398/Motorcycle-Article/2003-Ducati-999.aspx

Zed Power again reminds us that “At 9:00 AM on September 9th, 2009 is the day of interconnectedness. A day for steeping yourself in world energies. Tilt the world axis. Put a little peace into the planetary awareness.”At 9:00 AM on September 9th, 2009 is the day of interconnectedness. A day for steeping yourself in world energies. Tilt the world axis. Put a little peace into the planetary awareness.” http://www.zedpower.net/090909/

From http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread330653/pg1 forum on 999- “as long as we are alive and kicking on this planet there will be an infinite amount of numerical and date related scenarios for one to ponder.”

There is always the 2012 doomsday conspiracy, when the long count calendar of the Ancient Mayans ends on December 21, 2012.

As summer dwindles down with the last of picnics this Labor Day weekend, unemployment numbers continue to rise.  Whatever President Barack Hussein Obama’s stimulus package was supposed to stimulate, it obviously did not occurr in the jobs sector and led us to a recession.  

The Labor Department reported that productivity grew at a 6.6% annual rate in the second quarter http://www.bls.gov/news.release/prod2.nr0.htm.  People are working hard in America as they have always done, even with the government’s debt projections well into the trillions. 

The latest means of government raising revenue to fund socialism, US congressman Peter DeFazio has introduced is HR 1068 which would tax financial transactions on Wall Street to repay TARP funds.  This Act may be cited as the `Let Wall Street Pay for Wall Street’s Bailout Act of 2009′. http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/z?c111:H.R.1068.  with text in its entirety here at http://frwebgate.access.gpo.gov/cgi-bin/getdoc.cgi?dbname=111_cong_bills&docid=f:h1068ih.txt.pdf.

Author Les Leopold and the AFL-CIO think this is a great idea saying, “this is the best moment since the 1930s to do something about our obscene mal-distribution of wealth and our ruinous, bloated financial sector.” http://www.huffingtonpost.com/les-leopold/labor-day-special-reward_b_277094.html 

The mal-distribution of wealth?  Whoa there Robin Hood!  It is American companies and the backbone of the American worker who supported the world economies for years.  Had bureaucrats and politicians done their job to inhibit and regulate blatant failures in the oversight of Frannie and Freddie Mac, AIG, and Madoff to name a few, the American economy would not have hit this bump on the road of democracy.  Don’t even put the blame on deregulation.  There are plenty of laws and taxes on the books that need enforcement, not layer upon layer of more regulation that allowed this scam of our tax dollars to occur. 

HR 1068 is an insult to American Capitalism. A fabulous example if you are into the whole lettering writing campaign to send to you representative against this tax can be found at http://alphaguy.blogspot.com/2009/02/my-letter-to-steny-hoyer-about-hr-1068.html.

On the one hand, the government recommends you invest on Wall Street with a 401k, IRA’s, stocks and bonds for your retirement to avoid the burdened social security program and then, wants to place an additional tax upon the transaction!  Who is the thief? 

“When an American says that he loves his country, he means not only that he loves the New England hills, the prairies glistening in the sun, the wide and rising plains, the great mountains, and the sea.  He means that he loves an inner air, an inner light in which freedom lives and in which a man can draw the breath of self-respect.” wrote, Adlai Stevenson.

Recently, President Obama was asked if he believed in American Exceptionalism.  The President of the United States of America replied: “I believe in American Exceptionalism, just as I suspect the Brits believe in British Exceptionalism and the Greeks believe in Greek Exceptionalism.”

The question wasn’t about patriotism, it was about exceptionalism!  Perhaps President Obama should have been more clear by saying something like, “In the new world order, everyone and every country will be exceptional.  My socialistic, Marxist policies will make individualism and the desire to create exceptionalism cease, along with America’s global economic, military, scientific and cultural dominance.”

“Afterburner with Bill Whittle” from Pajamas TV has created this fabulous video explaining to Bill Maher and President Obama the difference between patriotism and exceptionalism.  If you click no other videos today, make this be the one. 

http://www.pjtv.com/video/Afterburner_with_Bill_Whittle/_Bill_Maher,_Barack_Obama_and_the_Truth_About_American_Exceptionalism/2378/8861/

God Bless America this Labor Day and all the days.
