Missed a few days? This effort has been going on longer than we care to admit.
Get caught up in "Recent". This page last updated December 7, 2013
"We petition the Obama administration to:
Issue a specific statement regarding preservation of Sovereignty and The Constitution from outside influence.
We require a specific statement from The White House regarding what efforts The White House will take and when, in support of a proposal for a Constitutional Amendment [called "Hierarchy of Law" at www.usann.us/Hierarchy_of_Law.html and further explained on that site], to preserve Sovereignty, and The Constitution as the guiding Law of the Land and by ensuring a specific clarification of a hierarchy within the structures provided within and under that Constitution; or, a statement of why such support is not and will not be provided.
The proposal is largely designed to keep UN and 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.”
This petition is hosted on a White House site, https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/issue-specific-statement-regarding-preservation-sovereignty-and-constitution-outside-influence/QvMJlzjd, which does require a name and an email address to “open an account”, which takes just a couple of minutes; it also hosts a lot of other petitions, accessible through the same account. It might be worth checking out even if you don’t like ours.
While we think this is clear enough for just about anybody to sign without even having to read the material referenced, we invite you to do the reading. We are pretty sure any examination of the material will only further encourage folk to sign. We hope it will also encourage people to recommend to virtually everybody they know, to sign also.
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.
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.
