September 1, 2014



Just over 9 weeks to a date that may  -- will --  determine the future of this country for years to come.  One way or another, the election scheduled for November 4 will be a turning point for the nation.  Good and bad, that date is signal.

We believe that Barack the First may find an excuse  -- particularly with the Ferguson trial balloon having been floated --  to, as we suggested long ago, with expression of great regret, suspend the Constitution and “delay” the election for some nebulous period of time.  It isn’t likely…but far too strong a possibility; so many dots, so many ways to connect them.

If that comes about, we suspect things will be very messy for perhaps a very long time.  It could take generations before much of a semblance of what was once known as The United States of America will be seen again.

If the election is allowed to go forward on schedule and without tampering, there still are hurdles to get over.

First, Democrats elected/re-elected must be of a mindset that will, if they remain in the majority, remove Harry Reid from Leadership.  We think it best if Conservatives gain control in The Senate, but imperative that Reid no longer control that body.

Second, The House must continue to have a Conservative majority; it would be best if a stronger Speaker too the helm there, but should the majority wind up in the hands of liberals/Democrats, there is no telling what damage may come about in the following two years; exactly what form and how fast is beyond our ken, but that there will be such is all but guaranteed.

Third, the guy now generally accepted as President has to be removed from office through expeditious exercise of Section 4 of the 25th Amendment.

Dovetailed into this we hope will be a true groundswell of interest in adopting Jeffersons’ advice about chaining men to The Constitution, in this instance to performance contracts signed by candidates  -- all the candidates, if possible --  to assure the proposal on this site for Fiscal Responsibility, becomes a ratified amendment as soon as possible.  The proposal for “Hierarchy of Law” is likewise a needed amendment, most particularly while a loose cannon is running The White House.

We figure to be very busy for the next couple of months.



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/lSPls  [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 September 22, 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.
