It is not about the Flag

After she was dismissed from the House floor, Mrs. Pelosi made her way back to her office with staff in tow. She appeared both very excited and livid. Apparently at one point she jabbed a crooked, trembling right finger into the air several times for emphasis while declaring, ‘Just wait – we will hang them by that (Confederate) flag!’ 

Thus Nancy Pelosi was quoted shortly after being shut-down on the House floor.

Her outburst reveals a determination to injure her Republican counterparts.  This is the state of our national politics.  It is mirrored at the state level, local level, and outside of official political circles in our communities.

Below is the text of the ten amendments that constitute the Bill of Rights.  The Bill of Rights articulates acts the US Government may never violate.  Today in 2015, not one clause in one amendment can be claimed to be free of infringement, if not outright violation, by the American Political Class.  Those politicians act at the urging of those who vote for them, so it must be acknowledged that the American People have no significant opposition to those violations and infringements.  While some Americans may complain, none have as yet followed the footsteps of Captain John Parker or Pierre Gustave Toutant-Beauregard.

Bill of Rights:

Amendment I

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Amendment II

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Amendment III

No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.

Amendment IV

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Amendment V

No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

Amendment VI

In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence.

Amendment VII

In Suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury, shall be otherwise re-examined in any Court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law.

Amendment VIII

Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.

Amendment IX

The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

Amendment X

  1. The protections which they have trammeled under foot served their benefit far more than ours. And now that those protections are so thoroughly dispatched, and by their very own hands, I shall not bother to contemplate the loss of them until they be restored, and neither shall I be so constrained as I go about said restoration...

  3. Sooooooon, we'll be walkin the walk, or showing that we lack the intestinal fortitude of a mealyworm.

    Each man must choose, for his household, whom he shall serve. But as for me and my house, we shall serve the Lord.

    We have a Henry the VIII on the throne in the Imperial Capital, Washington DC - his words are a prophesy of despair, his footsteps the hallmark of destruction, and his entourage the very synagogue of Satan.

    Hope you guessed his name...

    WE HAVE BEEN WARNED
