Politics And The Law

Thursday, December 19, 2013

Remember, if you like your Constitution you can keep it.  Period.  

That is if you can recognize it through all the lies, deceptions, misrepresentations, promises, political speeches, and back-door political maneuvering and arm-twisting by elected officials to secure those big bucks that guarantee job security for them or their political party for a few more years.  Do not allow them to distort, misquote, and try to sell their revised meanings to you to suit their purposes.  They do not have that power....unless we, as Americans, are willing to turn it loose.

For this special season, give yourself and your family the gift that never fails to keep on giving, just as it has for the last 276 years.  Find that old copy of our Constitution and all of its Amendments, including our Bill of Rights, and together read the facts because that is the only place you will find them.  All of them.  And they cannot be disputed. 

Our Constitution is the Supreme Law of the Land.  Our earliest forefathers fought wars to open a pathway for us to obtain it and we have fought our worst wars to hold onto it.  We must protect it from the influence of foreign powers, and now from those within our own country who seem to consider themselves too wise, too important, and too progressive for the tried-and-true simplicity of the words of our founding fathers and the unyielding power of our Republic.  Do not allow anyone on the face of the Earth (or its satellites) to take it away from us.  It instructs our government in detail on how each branch is to function and to whom it is responsible.  But most importantly, it contains, establishes, and guarantees our freedoms.  All of them in detail.  Every one of us should know them by heart to ensure that they are never forgotten or lost.  They are what we must continue to fight to defend, even among our own people.

City’s Zoning Reform: Fresh Water But Dirty Pipe

It’s taken decades for city government’s outdated zoning scheme to be thrown out, but the day has come.
