If You Don't Learn from History, You deserve What You Get

This is not a call to arms,
but only a reminder of things past and our heritage.

Subverting The Constitution is NOT Treason,
But it is a high crime or misdemeanor.

Falsum etiam est verum quod constituit obama

False becomes true when obama decides it is.    Syrus


Treason doth never prosper: what’s the reason?
 Why if it prosper, none dare call it treason.
(later) Sir John Harington  (4 August 1561 – 20 November 1612)


Sermo datur cunctis; animi sapient paucis

Speech is given to many, intelligence (in the case of Obama) to few.


To be, or not to be,  that is the question:
Whether ‘tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
 And by opposing, end them?

William Shakespeare,    Hamlet 3/1


Scots Wha Hae
(Robert Burns)

Scots, wha hae wi’ Wallace bled,
Scots, wham Bruce has aften led;
Welcome to your gory bed,
Or to victory!

Now’s the day, and now’s the hour;
See the front o’ battle lour;
See approach proud Edward’s power-
Chains and slavery!

Wha will be a traitor knave?
Wha can fill a cowards grave?
Wha sae base aa be a slave?
Let him turn and flee!

Wha for Scotland's king and law
Freedom's sword will strongly draw,
Freeman stand, or freeman fa',
 Let him follow me!

By oppression’s woes and pains!
By your sons in servile chains!
We will drain our dearest veins,
But they shall be free!

Lay the proud usurpers low!
Tyrants fall in every foe!
Liberty’s in every blow!-
Let us do or die!
