Aside from some, historical curiosity, the Founding Fathers are actually irrelevent
And yet some argument shall arise regarding some politician trying to use a particular religion to deprive someone of their Freedom or Liberty and then immediately someone is saying but the FFs were “Deists” !! with another saying, no, they were Christians !!
The only tangential pertinence any of this, could possibly have, is when someone doesn’t know what a particular term used in the US Constitution, or early statutes, means, and then according to the rules of statutory construction - which predates the colonies, altogether, and only after all else fails, like the usual signification of the words - the original intent is resorted to and thus you review the historical record to assist in finding the meaning of the term, usage, &c
The root of your rights - protected under Federal law - is now found in the 14th Amendment (especially the 1st section):
“Section. 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
Section. 2. Representatives shall be apportioned among the several States according to their respective numbers, counting the whole number of persons in each State, excluding Indians not taxed. But when the right to vote at any election for the choice of electors for President and Vice President of the United States, Representatives in Congress, the Executive and Judicial officers of a State, or the members of the Legislature thereof, is denied to any of the male inhabitants of such State, being twenty-one years of age, and citizens of the United States, or in any way abridged, except for participation in rebellion, or other crime, the basis of representation therein shall be reduced in the proportion which the number of such male citizens shall bear to the whole number of male citizens twenty-one years of age in such State.
Section. 3. No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.
Section. 4. The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned. But neither the United States nor any State shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or any claim for the loss or emancipation of any slave; but all such debts, obligations and claims shall be held illegal and void.
Section. 5. The Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article”.
So if you are born in the USA, then you enjoy all of the rights that anyone else does - e.g., you don’t have to be related to or of the same religion as a Founding Father - if they were alive then they would have the exact same status under the law as you, except if they’re in the Legislature or hold a Judgship then certain immunities apply to them in that capacity only, anything to the contrary notwithstanding
So all of this Deist, Christian bullshit is just that, religion is absolutely irrelevant in regard to rights that inure to you by virtue of the fact that you are born here; and thus another reason why religion is a matter of privacy (“a wall of separation between church and state”) - e.g., the US Const doesn’t say you have to be Baptized, have a Bar Mitzvah, &c So you do your thing I’ll do mine and we needn’t trade rituals, tenets, customs nor habits.
For instance, it’s not my fault if there are less members of your religion now than before, I really don’t give a fuck, don’t fucking have to and in fact the government is altogether prohibited from doing anything to assist you regarding the difficulties you are having or purport to be having with your religion or your lack of followers, their lack of piety or whatever the fuck else your problem is with your religion.
It appears absolutely clear to me by the very words of the 1st Amendment, US Const:
“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”.
And by the fact that the Supreme Law of the Land incorporates the Bill of Rights against the States or at the very least incontrovertibly incorporates the 1st Amendment, against the states, then “No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge …” a Citizen/person’s, protection under the law, from any purported law or the enforcement of an interpretation of law “respecting an establishment of religion”
The establishment clause acts as a limitation on the exercise clause “or prohibiting the free exercise thereof” - e.g., the blood line of Holy Saviour John Wesley is free to rampage on horseback blasting people to the head with his Bible, until the sconce banged, dizzying crowd, falling down, flailing about on the street and thoroughfares, with pain filled expression, become Presbytereans and/or Methodists - run here comes John Wesley, again !! because he is a private person and government is prohibited from stopping him, in the free exercise of his religion, the same as they are prohibited from interfering with the KKK burning crosses in people yards or on public property, as they are likewise prohibited from interfering with Yaqui Indians ingesting peyote or Incas cutting your heart out and stomping on it until you fucking die - or - religion is private, you have a church, a private altar and the government can’t tear you from it, can’t disrupt your ritual, mass, whatever; in fact they can’t even demand you hand over some coin from your collection plate, you miserable miscreant cur. So which one makes more sense?
One of the things that is pertinent is Praemunire . And this used to really piss off Pat Moynihan to no end, because John Jay alludes to it - if memory serves - in Federalist #1 Regarding national security in terms of Quebec lQQk. Aside from the elementary legal principles addressed above - This is the real background to the JFK speech - viz., whom would JFK be loyal to, the Pope or the US Const. In an act of true humility JFK unequivocally reaffirmed his loyalty to the US Const, and this makes Rick Santorum “sick” because it is a Declaration of Religious Privacy by a Roman Catholic President. But this is also pertinent in regard to Section 3 of the 14th A. US Const, quoted above - viz., Rick Santorum is essentially leading an insurrection against the Supreme Law of the Land by Public imposition of his otherwise private religious tenets, precisely what a considerable number of republicans feared about JFK and thus refused to vote for him cf
It really amazes me, what a complete and thorough fucking idiot Rick Santorum really is. I mean this is the sort of dipshit that Universities in the US and bar associations grant degrees to and licenses to, to practice law? Gee I guess it’s no wonder why he also feels that the desire to have a college education is “elitist”. He could only wish ? So the totality of Rick Santorum’s qualifications to be US President are his loyalty to the Pope, the tenets of Roman Catholicism regarding birth control and his Love to monogamously fuck Heterosexually, without protection, to make as many neo white babies as possible which he intends to force all other white people to do as well. And these guys want the Newtster to go home? Wow. I’m sure glad I’m not a republican.
But to finally wrap up this Founding Fathers bosh. If these were necromancized and could see this place now? O death where is they sting. I can’t possibly imagine how they could have foreseen what the population would be like, nor the technologies or where these early States went, expanded, whatever, but I’m quite certain they’d want nothing to do with most of us and find the so called 1% equally as disgusting as contemporary politics, which finally goes to the very heart of all of this GOPstapo bosh - the “Old Money”? It’s long gone Daddy cf. “the Legal Tender Cases (II)”. The Old Money, today, is all Daddy War Bucks and thus not really very old at all. Isn’t it ironic, all money comes from the government - as it always did - and all of the New Old Money (nom) came into being by war spending.
Hey Chris, this “Red Eye Radio” outfit out of Dallas Texas is calling you a Left Wing radical extremist - hehehehehe - they must be the ones that plastered all of those adverts all over your page !! Lol.
I was hoping that the election of Barack Obama would do two things
(1) Annihilate the Divine Right Presidency - O dear by election what am I saying
(2) Annihilate the Idea of Race
To some degree both of these things happened, at least for society, which in terms of evolution is always way the fuck ahead of the Democratic-republican
single party Monolith.
It’s possibly one of the Only things the GOPstapo is finally getting hip to
O but tommy look at all of those crackers down south voting for the establishment of religion the re-enslavement of women, denying Blacks and other
minorities the right to vote. Precisely, it’s because the Monolith allows them to, solely as a means to collect your vote. Otherwise, where’s their
solutions? Aside from the ballot box.
So I was watching my arch nemesis Thom Hartmann on the otherwise absolutely awesome RT. He’s kind of like the KKK, you listen to them for a while and they
have this down home populist message kind of like Ezra Pound, or Father Coughlin, and then comes the punchline - it’s the Jew Merchant Leach Conspiracy to
dupe the Crown of England !! O shit here comes Lyndon Larouche, it was the Queen of England !! She conspired with Oliver North to sell cocaine to, to … the
Actually I usually just plug my ears when Thom goes on about Corporate Personhood - or at least try - but last night really took the cake. Thom is counting
on his fingers and reciting things that the Democratic Party gave to the people and asked - what did the republicans give to the people? Well this doesn’t
surprise me that he’d ask, since he wants to destroy the erm 14th Amendment? because he wrote - in remarkable ignorance - a book about “corporate
And since Robert Reich tapped this vein to draw money for his Move On, corporation, it shouldn’t surprise me that the segments MSNBC airs between
commercials continues to make fun of a brief quip Mitt Romney made saying that “people are corporations”.
Since Mitt’s quip wasn’t altogether mutilated, as to annihilate all remnants of context and meaning, what he was referring to is something Ch J. John
Marshall for the unanimous Court circa 1809 also referred to - i.e., that corporations are comprised of persons and that their acts are the joint actions of
such persons. This was in conjunction with a jurisdictional question that arose regarding the fact and point of law then recognized - that corporations are
persons for particular purposes under the common law, which is, the law of all of the States except Louisiana - e.g., to allow for the joint ownership of
property - e.g., the factors of production; to have joint bank accounts, the right to sue jointly and to be sued jointly.
The thing Hartmann, Reich &c don’t like is that corporations can make films which the US Supreme Court ruled cannot be banned by the US Government !! that’s what the Citizen’s United ruling prevents from happening. Jesus Christ read the gotdammed fucking decision already !!
So if their Amendment actually had a snow ball’s chance in Hell, then corporations could merely call themselves Associations and avoid suit altogether call
Andy Cuomo and US District Judge Tom McAvoy they’ll give you a hand with it, just tell them tommy sent you. Both of them hate the 1st Amendment too, but so what, right?
But tommy seriously wtf does this have to do with race and religion, you vulgar White Russian Nigger sonofabitch you
Most pertinently, this “corporate personhood” bosh was how the Democratic Party drove a wedge between me and OWS and continues to brain rot millions of
otherwise well intentioned people that also blew the chance of inter alia bringing Federal Civil Right suits against every municipal corporation that
violated the rights of OWS (persons) and various people of the Press - Occupy the Courts indeed. So the whole thing makes perfect sense
(A) Hartmann & the Democratics
don’t give a fuck about the 1st Amendment
(B) don’t give a fuck about the 14th Amendment
(C) want to preserve and protect the 11th Amendment - because they’re
all Thomas Jefferson States Rights assholes - viz., while these States are terrorizing the fuck out of women - they don’t mind a bit - business as usual. O
it’s election time get the abortion thing going, one side for, one side against it’s only about women and
(D) They want to make “change” nearly impossible by providing “the ballot
box” as your only purported, road to relief.
Time to come up with some new speech material President Obama
Hartmann is also opposed to allowing the US Supreme Court to have any prerogative writs, any juirsdiction to review the decisions of Executive officers or
overturn administrative decisions and opposed to Court jurisdiction for overturning any legislation whatsoever.
Ladies !! fuck the “and gentlemen”, listen up. The Democratic Party, including the women therein, do not give a fuck about you being free, and they REALLY
don’t give a fuck about the US Constitution, all they want are your votes. Listen to the speech by Reverend Al Click. I mean, sure, by all means, ride that Jumpin Jack Ass for as long as it will carry you, but
seriously, tame the motherfucker first.
Here’s the 2 x 4.
Demand that the 14th Amendment be fixed so that the second section includes women people 18 years of age and older and that it is deployed against the States
-e.g., for issuing the new Poll taxes in the form of photo IDs. Abolish the 11th Amendment, which would also enhance this power by suing the mother fuckers
directly, for cash. Hey you want to fuck with women? You want to deprive people of their vote? Ok dudes we’re going to sue you for cash. Have fun with your
balanced budgets. Why is no one even mentioning this? It ought to be “self evident”.
The Dimocratics want Congress? Put forth candidates willing to do the foregoing, otherwise do a write in
I’ve been making a point that I’m - as far as I know - a White Russian. Which is a bit ironic, like, are regular Russians, not white, too? I never realized
anything about race or ethnicity until I was introduced to partisan politics. I ran away from home and noticed that some of the bars were painted green and I
thought wow this is some kind of a joke right? Wtf. My first gf’s mother worked with the local Board of Elections and we used to go to tent meetings. I
remember this one where they had two tents, one was the Democratics and the other were the republicans. I asked her, those people there: the one’s with the
white hair and the real white faces - because they clearly were outstanding - some of them have the red noses like WC Fields? She thought that was funny and
told me, Irish. When I asked why did they paint their bars green she really thought that was funny.
The only people I ever recognized in regard to
race were Black people. Because the TV was like , look here, these are the White people and those ones they’re rubber hosing and doing the water canons with, they’re the Negro race.
This one family member was a severe racist. All he talked about was ‘the Niggers are taking over the world’ !! and I started to
notice that some people would politely go along with him turn away and roll their eyes and others would get real tired of it after while. Well one of my
cousins seemed sincere in going along with him which kind of disappointed me, but one day we were driving in his car and this Black family had a flat tire on
this real busy part of a highway. People were blowing their horns swerving around them - when clearly they were way off the road - and my cousin seemed very
pissed off made an illegal U turn went back told them to stay in the car and changed the tire for them and they drove off. He was fuming pissed. I didn’t
understand and then after a while he calmed down and explained. Nobody would stop to help them just because they were Black; and I said yeah but why did you
change the tire for them? He said if that guy tried to change it himself somebody would have run him over.
About ten years later another cousin had a rock n
roll band. Their drummer killed himself and they got me cheap - trouble was I was only 16, no problem. We were the 1st R n R band that played in white bars,
here in Binghamton, except for a Black bar over on the South side - Gentleman Joe Taylor’s. So we had a “salt n pepper” crowd as they said then and there
would be fights. One Black guy that used to come to our shows was friends with my cousin they worked together on a road crew. Someone ran him over while he
was working. Hit and run.
And don’t be a smartass, you know which one
Now don’t get me wrong, I hated the 1980s starting in 1978 and they were the worst years of my life. I became an alcoholic only because drugs are
illegal - fucking LSD was awesome - and I hated Ronald Reagan about as much as I ever hated anyone. But never at no time in my life did I ever think of
myself as White, or as a Russian or as anything else, really. I mean I really have to think about man, woman, Gay, bi &c all I know is I’m definitely Not a
Heterosexual but I Love and adore beautiful bare assed women. And never at no time in my life did race and especially ethnicity have any pertinence at all
than when RayGUn was Fuhrer. And then the whole solution was quite clear …
Let’s just end the discrimination and just be people.
Now this is the curious thing, because republicans during this time were saying things like “the Constitution is color blind” and the Democratics didn’t seem
to like that, so what also became increasingly clear to me was that maybe the Constitution is color blind but the Monolith clearly isn’t and clearly wasn’t.
But there is one thing I am compelled to admit:
When President Obama was elected US President, it was/is maybe the 1st time in US history where at least the Democratic faction of the Monolith was ahead of
the social curve; and unfortunately the republicans just “don’t get it” which is why they’re using their States Rights machines to deprive minorities of the
right to vote - viz., they think society did it !! and that’s the real sad part of the story - the republicans are opposed to society and the Democratics,
aren’t doing anything to prevent or stop the republicans from depriving people of the right to vote, and have every tool to do so. They Loved Barack’s speech
way more than Reverend Al’s.
People are less discriminating today than they were before Barack Obama was elected President. ‘It’s a republic Madam, if you can keep it’.
There truly is less distinction between Black and White. So this thing with the Presidency and race really is inseparble. When a White Man GOPstapo is
President, He is Jesus Christ He is God, He is Holy Sacred Divine, we must drop to our knees adore Him, get goose flesh, jack off in our pants - discretely - because He is White and He has a cock instead of one of those dirty filthy pussy things that defile our altars OMG keep her out from behind the Holy Wall
It’s a Russian Orthodox law and hey, they’re anti-communist.
But when he is Black … suddenly republicans cease to be, divine right monarchists, and return to being republicans except when Exxon wants a favor: then
it’s, sure Barack, go ahead, it’s a historic moment for your people, represent !! here, let us take you to the mount, look, it’s America listen to the many
voices of approbation.
What would Jesus Christ have done
An artist ought to paint the Crucifixtion with the little message replaced with Exxon. Replacing the two xx(s) with littlel Swastikas would be a nice touch
too, or maybe for a separate piece (I couldn’t find the Coca Cola labels on the Tomahawk Cruise Missile picture - dedicated reader - please add as a comment)
So it’s really too bad that the GOPstapo is still using race and religion but the fact is, so are the Democratics. I think this is truly the only thing
that’s preventing Mitt from being elected. If he was a Presbyterean they would be lounging about waiting for Obama to get his things together so Mitt and
Bechtel Corporation could move back in. It’s not because a minority of Americans or the society at large is racist but a lot of Society, especially women, that
Love bondage, enslavement, domination because they Love getting money and bling from Men that Love to give, just feel better about being ruled by a big strong handsome White Man, especially if
he’s a member of the majority religion.
Sorry to say it folks, but it’s true, Americans really are, literally, that fucking stupid
But really, how could you expect them to be otherwise? They are indentured servants to business - fuck the Ralph Nader corporate bit - it’s business. So
really I’d much rather be talking about stuff like this - and hopefully I’ll get around to it soon, Hope your Master gives you a chance to watch it
Fetal personhood passed in Thomas “the Big Cheese” Jefferson’s Empire of Virginia. Ironically, he had attempted to make what is now Michigan part of Virginia too.
And as Alyona recently pointed out and in many cases States use Federal money to balance their budgets, rather than what it’s intended for - it’s all about States Rights and their absolute immunity under the 11th Amendment to the US Constitution. This is what the New Republicans’ bitch is all about with Federal “earmarks” and Mandates:
I found out about this when now NYS Governor Andrew Cuomo, then NYS Attorney General, instructed the RayGun/Monynihan Federal District Judge Tom McAvoy to kill my 1st Amendment case against SUNY Binghamton and the College Radio station WHRW. I was an educational broadcaster licensed by the University and under the order of the student/State employee running the station I was removed from an on air broadcast by two State Security guards because I allegedly played a sound recording at 4am containing the word “shit” and am now perpetually banned from station facilities because I refuse to self censor myself and wave my broadcast rights under the FCC v Pacifica “safe harbor zone”.
The gist presented by Cuomo on behalf of the State University was that McAvoy had to kill my case because it could harm the ability of the State to - amongst other things - steal welfare money. At least those were the sorts of cases he continued to site. But how could that be, Billy Bob Clinton already made his new “work or die” welfare benefits into Block Grants, when he abolished Title IV-A of the Social Security Act of 1935 cf lQQk which now lets the States essentially do whatever they want with it, anyway, you know, kind of like RayGun did with Social Security; except for one thing, when the State used to do this with peoples welfare benefits and the people entitled to those benefits as the victims of State theft sued, the US Supreme Court decided to bar recovery of retroactive entitlements - i.e., benefits in the form of payments from the Federal government factually stolen from welfare recipients by the State, under pretence of the States’ absolute immunity under the 11th Amendment.
Isn’t it ironic, Thom Hartmann &c invent this Corporate Personhood bullshit sucking the life out of OWS after leading the entire movement into the Monolith’s corral, and then Bernie Saunders, Robert Reich and others come into feed, too. Consequently, OWS utterly refrained/s from doing any Monell actions against municipalities - which are corporations - which flagrantly and maliciously deprived the Press and other persons of a myriad of Federally protected rights; altogether stomping shitting and pissing on the landmark Civil Rights case of Owens v Independence Missouri, authored by William Brennan; and thus, not only on the path of restoring absolute municipal immunity but gifting to the States Rights KKK crew pretence to get “their” women back in the kitchen bare foot and pregnant “where they belong”.
How ironic it would be the Empire of Virginia of Thomas “the Big Cheese” Jefferson, Thom Hartmann’s absolute idol.
Abolish the 11th Amendment to the US Const. This will allow women - as the victims of these forms of Heterosexual Patriarchal Repression - to sue the State directly - for money. That will stop all this dick dream bullshit ‘right quick’ and also prevent the Democratic side of the hyphen from using Women like they do Blacks and other minorities forging the perpetuation of all of this Patriarchal racist bullshit as a matter of vested political interest.
It is remarkably ignorant that there are all of these people bitching about some corporations, not realizing that Universities, municipalities and even States are corporations too; moreover, the reason that the 11th Amendment was passed in the first place was to protect the States from being sued by creditors - people they owed/owe money to.
You really ought to follow my blogs. I’m not asking you to like me only to be hip to what is actually happening and how you are being used.
