FOOD FOR THOUGHT

WRITING THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE

For seventeen days Thomas Jefferson composed and revised his rough draft of the Declaration of Independence. The major portion of the Declaration is taken up with a long series of charges against king George III. However, these were nearly all copied from Jefferson’s drafts of the Virginia Constitution and his Summary View of the Rights of British America. To copy these charges into the Declaration would not have taken him more than a single day. What was he doing the other sixteen days?

It appears that he spent most of the remaining time trying to structure into the first two paragraphs at least eight of the “ancient principles” which he had come to admire. His views on each of these principles are rounded out in other writings, and from these various sources we are able to identify the following fundamental principles in the first two paragraphs of the Declaration of Independence:

 

  1. Sound government should be based on self-evident truths. These truths should be so obvious, so rational, and so morally sound that their authenticity is beyond reasonable dispute.
  2. The equal station of mankind here on earth is a cosmic reality, an obvious and inherent aspect of the law of nature and of nature’s God.
  3. This presupposes (as a self-evident truth) that the Creator made human beings equal in their rights, equal before the bar of justice, and equal in his sight. (Of course, individual attributes and personal circumstances in life vary widely.)
  4. These rights which have been bestowed by the Creator on each individual are unalienable; that is, they cannot be taken away or violated without the offender coming under the judgment and wrath of the Creator. A person may have other rights, such as those which have been created as a “vested” right by stature, but vested rights are not unalienable. They can be altered or eliminated at any time.
  5. Among the most important of the unalienable rights are the right to life, the right to liberty, and the right to pursue whatever course of life a person may desire in such of happiness, so long as it does not invade the inherent rights of others.
  6. The most basic reason for a community or nation to set up a system of government is to assure its inhabitants that the rights of the people shall be protected and preserved.
  7. And because this is so, it follows that no office or agency of government has any right to exist except with the consent of the people or their representatives.
  8. It also follows that if a government either by malfeasance or neglect, fails to protect those rights – or, even worse, if the government itself begins to violate those rights – then it is the right and duty of the people to regain control of their affairs and set up a form of government which will serve the people better.

WAKE UP AMERICA BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE!

“If our country is to survive and prosper, we must summon the courage to condemn and reject the liberal agenda, and we had better do it soon.”
-Walter Williams-

 

“YOU JUST CAN’T MAKE THIS S**T UP” CATEGORY

“What we’ve seen on display for the last several years … GOP is really not a party of ideas any more, it’s not a party of legislation; they can’t agree among themselves so they’ve become a party of investigation and the party of gridlock… even if there is no basis for it, that’s just what they do… The GOP is at war with itself, and the only thing they can agree on these days is to have endless investigations.”

Adam Schiff

 

Since the Democrats took over the majority in the House of Representatives, they have accomplished nothing. At one time, there were four House committees investigating President Trump. The far left radical element has divided the Democratic Party so that they are the party that is at war with itself. Congress is at a gridlock because the moron American hating Democrats are so fixed on getting President Trump out of office. Once again Adam Schiff proved, beyond any reasonable doubt, that you don’t have to have any intelligence to be Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. His statement exactly describes the moron American hating Democrats, not the Republicans.

 

AN OPINION FROM THE DEPLORABLE INFIDEL

Another quote from “Quid Pro Joe”:

“I never had an interest in being a mayor “cause that’s a real job. You have to produce. That’s why I was able to be a senator for 36 years.”

And the moron American hating Democrats want this man for president?

 

A SIMPLE TRUTH FOR TODAY

“Politics, it seems to me, for years, or all too long, has been concerned with right or left instead of right or wrong.”

Today’s True Story of an Angel Encounter

 

Rose Benvenuto swerved to avoid hitting a dog and ended up in a severe accident. “Only my guardian angel could have saved me from such an accident,” she told ABC. The then 58-year-old Rose was lucky to be alive. Upon looking at the mangled wreckage, first responders were shocked to come to the scene and find the driver still alive and with hardly a scratch.

Bewildered by the angel that they saw taken from the wreckage, they took another look. The negatives also showed an image of the same angel. The woman involved in the accident firmly believes that it was indeed her guardian angel watching over her.

We can’t explain everything in life and encounters with guardian angels are one of those things. “For He will command His angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways,” Psalm 91:11 said. God does send His messengers to protect us and to inform.

Pelosi Goes to Church

Image result for pelosi at catholic church

Last Saturday afternoon in Washington, D.C. an aide to Nancy Pelosi visited the Bishop of the Catholic Cathedral in D.C. He told the Cardinal that Nancy Pelosi would be attending the next day’s Mass, and asked if the Cardinal would kindly point out Pelosi to the congregation and say a few words that would include calling Pelosi a saint.

The Cardinal replied, “No. I don’t really like the woman, and there are issues of conflict with the Catholic Church over some of Pelosi’s views.” Pelosi’s aide then said, “Look, I’ll write a check here and now for a donation of $100,000 to you if you’ll just tell the congregation you see Pelosi as a saint.”

The Cardinal thought about it and said, “Well, the Church can use the money, so I’ll work your request into tomorrow’s sermon.” As Pelosi’s aide promised, Nancy Pelosi appeared for the Sunday worship and seated herself prominently at the forward left side of the center aisle. As promised, at the start of his sermon, the Cardinal pointed out that Ms. Pelosi was present.

The Cardinal went on to explain to the congregation, “While Ms. Pelosi’s presence is probably an honor to some, the woman is not numbered among my personal favorite personages. Some of her most egregious views are contrary to tenets of the Church, and she tends to flip-flop on many other issues. Nancy Pelosi is a petty, self-absorbed hypocrite, a thumb sucker, and a nit-wit. Nancy Pelosi is also a serial liar, a cheat, and a thief.” I must say, Nancy Pelosi is the worst example of a Catholic I have ever personally witnessed. She married for money and is using her wealth to lie to the American people. She also has a reputation for shirking her Representative obligations both in Washington and in California The woman is simply not to be trusted.”

The Cardinal concluded. “But, when compared with Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi is a saint.”

Astronomy Picture of the Day

Stars and Dust in Corona Australis
Image Credit & Copyright: CHART32 Team, Processing – Johannes Schedler

Explanation: Cosmic dust clouds and young, energetic stars inhabit this telescopic vista, less than 500 light-years away toward the northern boundary of Corona Australis, the Southern Crown. The dust clouds effectively block light from more distant background stars in the Milky Way. But the striking complex of reflection nebulae cataloged as NGC 6726, 6727, and IC 4812 produce a characteristic blue color as light from the region’s young hot stars is reflected by the cosmic dust. The dust also obscures from view stars still in the process of formation. At the left, smaller yellowish nebula NGC 6729 bends around young variable star R Coronae Australis. Just below it, glowing arcs and loops shocked by outflows from embedded newborn stars are identified as Herbig-Haro objects. On the sky this field of view spans about 1 degree. That corresponds to almost 9 light-years at the estimated distance of the nearby star forming region.
