Treason, in our faces
How utterly ironic and, frankly, sick: John McCain is "guardedly optimistic":
...that we can get the bill to the floor of the Senate just before the fourth of July recess, and pass it through the United States Senate.
How utterly blatant an example of what Fredo Arias King identified as usurpation.
In a mind boggling exercise in governmental overreach, these idiots are attempting to shove down our throats a policy that will undermine our laws and livelihoods, despite massive public opposition - and they are planning to get it done just prior to the anniversary of our independence from the overreach that led to our emergence as a nation.
Ironic? You bet.
Comic? Only if you are on the delivering end rather than the receiving end.
If you are on the delivering end, it is a friggin' hoot what this bill would do to the typical American citizens....
You know, all of us retrogrades who cannot afford to live in gated communities and have to send our kids to the public schools. In other words: all of us chumps.
Bernard Bailyn identified the dominant ideological foundation of the American Revolution in the "radical" movement of 17th and 18th century England:
They insisted, at a time when the government was felt to be less oppressive than it had been for two hundred years, that it was necessarily - by it's very nature - hostile to human liberty and happiness; that, properly, it existed only on the tolerance of the people whose needs it served; and that it could be, and reasonably should be, dismissed - overthrown - if it attempted to exceed its proper jurisdiction.*
Dismissed and overthrown. Has a nice ring to it, does it not?
