Only checking in, leaving the previous entry in place.

The more things change, the more they are the same.  In Presidential sweepstakes, ignoring eligibility seems to be working  -- again --  for Democrats.

Obama-if-that’s-his-name.  Now, Kamala Harris.

But that should not be a concern for officialdom [both sides of the aisle]: it’s just a part of the Constitution, with practical logic behind it.  And after all, people today have a better understanding of the Constitution than anybody else  -- including those who wrote it --  has ever had [sarcasm].

Just listen to liberal Juan Williams of FOX.  Today he stated that the 25th Amendment is in the Constitution so that’s what The Founders gave us and wanted.  The 25th was ratified in 1967 in the aftermath of the assassination of JFK, so it is unlikely that The Founders had much to do with it.

Perhaps he was confused by ratification of the 27th more than 25 years ago:  proposed arguably earlier than what is commonly known as The Bill of Rights since it is higher on the page [Article 2 of 12, while Articles 3-12 were ratified in 1791 becoming the first 10 Amendments], the 27th was not ratified until 1992.

The 25th: our OEuclidean literally wrote a book about it…and tells us that, as stated in that book, it is likely the worst part of the Constitution and probably cannot stand if ever invoked.  Current interest in the 25th creates a small conflict for us in providing a link.  The book, while a bit “dated”, is believed to continue to hold considerable value in a discussion of the 25th, and is still available.  Despite our standard [for years] of not selling anything on this site, because of our long-standing interest in the Constitution generally and particularly the 25th we do have a notice about the existence of that book on our “Action Items” page, including a link to the Amazon sales page [a piece of it may be available FREE].  That requires an extra click or two of the mouse, but keeps us to our standards of not advertising, for those interested.


Also for those interested, that “Action Items” page provides access to our petitions as well…including our “pet”, #4, that could, through PLAN B, bring about a return to Constitutional government, in as little as perhaps just 3 weeks, for no money down and nothing a month.




We continue to petition to The White House in support for “Hierarchy of Law”, largely designed to keep UN & similar attempts against US sovereignty, as regarding arms and the Law of the Sea Treaty, from ever allowing the UN or others to dictate to the US, while still allowing the US to adopt positions in line with such.  Do you really want the UN telling us what to do about an invasion at our border, for example?


Please help this effort to protect US Sovereignty and The US Constitution.  More, here.  Or, take our word for it and immediately go to The White House site by way of our "Action Items" page to sign
[making use of the WhiteHouse.gov site ensures that nobody need leave any information here, potentially saves us a lot of work, and provides opportunity for visitors to also choose from a variety of other petitions that they may also wish to support...or not].

Let’s get this thing over the 100K signatures-in-30-days threshold for a response…in record time.

We need 100,000 signatures, and would rather have twice that  -- how about a half million?



We've a companion petition also accessible through the "Action Items" page with the objective of maintaining and even improving this petition access as a tool for responsive government [novel concept, huh?].  Signatures also requested for that one.





September 17, 2011, Constitution Day: we begin another effort at blogging.  Previous efforts have ended unceremoniously for a variety of reasons; for the most part we simply have not found it appropriate to pretend that we had something of significance to say publicly each and every day, too easily then neglecting for too long, distracted by daily life rather than making such an effort a part of daily life.

This process may well be subjected to similar problems but should result in a different end: for this blogging has a new intent added to the old, one of being an exercise in and a marking of self discipline [do not expect perfection; we don't, though we will strive for minimal evidence of our imperfections].  A daily entry is a part of our objective: it may be as brief and seemingly dismissive as " Nothing today", "We, too, sometimes need a break: this is one of ours.", or " Have noted news; gathering thoughts", but we are committed to at least checking in each day, and ask readers consider doing likewise.  [Entries may or may not be keyed to or even linked to other parts of the site, but we will endeavor to minimize choppiness.]

Too often, we may go on too long.  We may try to cover too many bases, resulting momentarily in a light treatment of heavy material, but we believe longer treatments will be available elsewhere on or at least through this site.

One of our objectives is to not waste a visitors' time.  We don't mind even offending folk, if it is all honest and above-board; but we would be disappointed if, having visited, somebody left feeling they'd wasted their time [much as we don't mind somebody leaving our table not being uncomfortably full, but would feel badly if they left hungry despite their efforts to become at least reasonably satisfied].


That will have to do for today: life interrupts.


Addendum, October 4, 2011

Any post more than a week old will be subject to being moved from this page and archived. For the immediate future, the Archive will be available on another page on the site.

Addendum, October 6, 2011

We will, from time to time, review and edit for typos et al, so that later readers may not be subjected to them.

Addendum, December 9, 2011

We have reorganized [again] so that the single most recent blog entry is readily available without having to mess with a slide bar much.  Recent entries will go to another page, eventually to archives, though those pages will be as we read, oldest first.  We hope this makes things easier for visitors.


Change is not sufficient; we need improvement.






(general) PLAN

Exercise integrity, and encourage others to do so: Support each other, and encourage others to do so;

Educate ourselves, and encourage others to do so; Use the term Usann, and encourage others to do so;

Resist tyranny, and encourage others to do so; Exercise authority over officials, and encourage others to do so;

And take the country back, one day, one moment, at a time.

Our goal is to follow the above plan in our lives and our business, thus being a part of returning our country, The United States of America, to the Republic it was envisioned and designed to be and The Great Experiment -- the Rule of Law -- brought to the world by the Founding Fathers.

We ask readers -- and others -- consider doing likewise.


Taking no ads, the only revenue to keep this site going is out of our own pockets and should arguably
be going to other things, from the few items sometimes in our store, and whatever
donations might be put in the tip jar on our Comment/Support page.

To the extent that you think reasonable

-- and please think for a moment about how long it would take you to put something like this together,
and what it would cost you, in energy and money, to then make it and keep it available on the web --

we ask you consider contributing to our delinquency.
