Davy Crockett's Primer
"Not Yours To Give"

Originally published in "The Life of Colonel David Crockett," by Edward Sylvester Ellis.
One day in the House of Representatives a bill was taken up appropriating money for the benefit of a widow of a distinguished naval officer. Several beautiful speeches had been made in its support. The Speaker was just about to put the question when Crockett arose:

"Mr. Speaker--I have as much respect for the memory of the deceased, and as much sympathy for the sufferings of the living, if suffering there be, as any man in this House, but we must not permit our respect for the dead or our sympathy for a part of the living to lead us into an act of injustice to the balance of the living. I will not go into an argument to prove that Congress
has not the power to appropriate this money as an act of charity. Every member upon this floor knows it. We have the right, as individuals, to give away as much of our own money as we please in charity; but as members of Congress we have no right so to appropriate a dollar of the public money. Some eloquent appeals have been made to us upon the ground that it is a debt due the deceased. Mr. Speaker, the deceased lived long after the close of the war; he was in office to the day of his death, and I have never heard that the government was in arrears to him.

"Every man in this House knows it is not a debt. We cannot, without the grossest corruption, appropriate this money as the payment of a debt. We have not the semblance of authority to appropriate it as charity. Mr. Speaker, I have said we have the right to give as much money of our own as we please. I am the poorest man on this floor. I cannot vote for this bill, but I will give one week's pay to the object, and if every member of Congress will do the same, it will amount to more than the bill asks."

He took his seat. Nobody replied. The bill was put upon its passage, and, instead of passing unanimously, as was generally supposed, and as, no doubt, it would, but for that speech, it received but few votes, and, of course, was lost.

Later, when asked by a friend why he had opposed the appropriation, Crockett gave this explanation: ... [Great story continued]

Watch the previous one too


The unabomber was .. never mind.

Gummint health care don't
need no stinking patent.

In 1999 I asked my boss, a  physicist by training, about an idea I had for a novel.  The central theme was this.  A chip is developed which government mandates be inserted into all newborns, in the back of their heads.  Ostensibly done to find lost and kidnapped children.  Parents loved  the idea for the peace of mind it offered.  Thing  is, the chips were coded by race.  And contained a small explosive that, when detonated by selective satellite signal, caused instantaneous death.  Would Henry Waxman like that technology, or what?  Anyway, the boss said it wouldn't work for some reason I forgot.  Instead of writing the novel, I did nothing. This story rang that bell. 

A Saudi inventor was recently denied a German patent for what is being described as a "killer chip". What is a killer chip? Cooler Ranch Doritos, hands down.

The basic model would consist of a tiny GPS transceiver placed in a capsule and inserted under a person's skin, so that authorities could track him easily. Model B would have an extra function -- a dose of cyanide to remotely kill the wearer without muss or fuss if authorities deemed he'd become a public threat.

The inventor said the chip could be used to track terrorists, criminals, fugitives, illegal immigrants, political dissidents, domestic servants and foreigners overstaying their visas.

"The invention will probably be found to violate paragraph two of the German Patent Law -- which does not allow inventions that transgress public order or good morals

If the aliens have taught us anything, it's that the key to successful human tracking is NOT LETTING THE HUMANS KNOW. You embed a cyanide chip under my skin and guess what -- I'm cutting it out. With my teeth. Oh I'm sorry, was that too hardcore for you? Yeah, well one time I ate two of my own toes because I hadn't eaten dessert.

On Wealth


                        You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity . . . . What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving . . . . The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else . . . . When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is the beginning of the end of any nation . . . .You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."  -  Adrian Rogers, 1931

Hold yer fire - unless they're dressed in pink


While in conversation with my staff Tuesday night, I was asked whether I thought our military would fire on civilians.  I remembered a study that was done during the Clinton years (funny how these issues gain importance when Democrats have the White House).  As I remembered it, Marines were asked that very question, and the answer seemed to be no.  Later I Googled it up.  This is not exactly what I remembered, but close enough. 

 By Forest Glen Durland

The U. S. military machine is shifting from war at the front lines with enemy solders to non-lethal war with civilians to quell uprisings. This bodes ill for America. An article in U.S. News and World Report entitled "Wonder Weapons" (July 7, 1997) described some of the weapons already developed. The comic book structure of the article displayed soldiers using stun guns on civilians.

PDD 25 (Presidential Decision Directive), signed by Clinton on May 3, 1994, puts America troops under foreign command. You no doubt remember the big question that was asked shortly thereafter. Our Marines were asked if they would fire on Americans. The U. S. military denied asking the question until they had it rammed down their throat. Again we have the secrecy threat. Why? You no doubt remember the unannounced raids in populated cities on empty buildings. Local residents were scared half to death. Many of you would not have heard about it because it was not carried by the main stream media. Again, we have the secrecy cloak. And again I ask, why?

Will America troops fire on Americans? Probably not. But bitter foreign troops will. Your tax dollars are training foreign troops in America. Do they hate Americans?
All this led me to discover Oath Keepers, (for the second time this year) which many of you prolly  knew about  They cover many issues, but it's this, where they ask Americans to subscribe to this oath, that's relevant.
1. We will NOT obey orders to disarm the American people.

2. We will NOT obey orders to conduct warrantless searches of the American people

3. We will NOT obey orders to detain American citizens as “unlawful enemy combatants” or to subject them to military tribunal.

4. We will NOT obey orders to impose martial law or a “state of emergency” on a state.

5. We will NOT obey orders to invade and subjugate any state that asserts its sovereignty.

6. We will NOT obey any order to blockade American cities, thus turning them into giant concentration camps.

7. We will NOT obey any order to force American citizens into any form of detention camps under any pretext.

8. We will NOT obey orders to assist or support the use of any foreign troops on U.S. soil against the American people to “keep the peace” or to “maintain control."

9. We will NOT obey any orders to confiscate the property of the American people, including food and other essential supplies.

10.We will NOT obey any orders which infringe on the right of the people to free speech, to peaceably assemble, and to petition their government for a redress of grievances.

"Mob tactics" Who?

"Mob tactics" Who?

I cobbled together some of the more outrageous Democrat responses to the nationwide grass roots (Pelosi says Astro-turf)  resistance to Obama care.  These people are .. beyond description.  Please don't turn me in to the Obama Snitch Line - I have a wife and kids.

I IDIOT - Paul Krugman

Why Democrats don't like unscripted debate

He's unpantsed in this video, but someone ought call the White House Snitch Line, and report Krugman for trying to peddle Heath Care disinfo.
