New window for “Hierarchy of Law” has just opened today.  We ask you sign: it will take only a few moments.  We ask you spread the word and encourage others to sign.  That too will take only a few moments.  The initial objective is to get a clear policy statement; nothing more.  Until something along the lines of this proposal is in place, the entirety of the Constitution is at risk, sovereignty is at risk.  Your choice.


Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi is still in prison in Mexico; almost 4 months now.  The petition (apparently initiated by the Sgt.s’ Mom) demanding Obama[?] demand release of Tahmooressi met the threshold for response almost 2 months ago, but despite all the time and other resources going into attending Democratic Party fundraisers, there has been apparently no time or other resources to take care of this; no word from The White House.  We’d like to see that petition get a genuine flood of additional signatures [VFW, having promised to do everything you can to assist: are you listening while in Convention?], perhaps encouraging attention to response.  By the way, there is a statute that requires POTUS to act in situations like this one, so it would seem either POSIC is again demonstrating total disregard for law and duty or, perhaps, Obama[?] doesn’t feel it applies to Him…perhaps being fully aware and demonstrating that He isn’t really POTUS?

Because The White House permits only 30 days for gathering signatures to meet the 100K threshold for a response but apparently thinks that response can come perhaps years later, we have created a new petition to try to change that: we see no reason it should take longer for a response than it takes to get the signatures to meet the threshold [we also want to ensure retribution does not invalidate the potential of this petition access].


All three of these petitions, and a herd of others as well, can be accessed through a single “account” that an individual creates at the WhiteHouse.gov site.  Nobody is exposed to email or much of anything else from here, by creating such an account [from that site, possibly, but we've seen no evidence of abuse since opening our account].  We never have access to any of the information left there to create an account; we require none here.  Please at least consider becoming more involved in making this society what it might best be.



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 to sign: http://wh.gov/lM0o5  [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.

If you are familiar with the place “III”, or “3%” holds in the gun rights realm, then it becomes simple: just 3% of the “likes” for National Association for Gun Rights on Facebook would be sufficient.  A similar proportion of NRA “likes” would get the job done as well.  That doesn’t go directly to questions of sovereignty, either; those who dislike “foreign entanglements”; those opposed to the Law of the Sea Treaty; or any number of other specifics, each of which would be covered by the proposal at issue.  [Gun people tend to not be “joiners”, so the potential pool from such resources could be far greater than indicated by “likes” for NRA or NAGR, so the proportion needed might be significantly less…but every signature counts, as does timeliness; please do whatever research you need to make yourself comfortable with signing ASAP and sign].
The confirmation email for having created a petition includes:

 Until your petition has 150 signatures,  
it will only be available from the following URL and will not be publicly  
viewable on the Open Petitions section of We the People

We need 100,000 signatures by August 21, 2014.



The petition requiring The White House demand release of Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi is still available for signatures.  It met the theoretical threshold number for a response well over a month ago (May 30), but nobody seems to have any idea when that response may come [or how germane it might be].

We request additional support for Tahmooressi as a means to encourage a germane response ASAP.



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.
