Magna Carta: Eight Centuries of Liberty.

Eight hundred years ago next month, on a reedy stretch of riverbank in southern England, the most important bargain in the history of the human race was struck.

Obama: I’ve Restored the US as the ‘Most Respected Country in the World’

Too bad it was at the point of a sword . . . sortof makes the "agreement" null and void by all standards of contract. And which version do we want them to go by nowadays, the one from 1297? And prithee, tell me, who amongst the rabble surrounding us are our "peers"? The term referred to the noblemen who actually signed it, not the commoners who were NOT parties to the agreement - same as the signers of the Constitution and THEIR posterity. WE are not parties to THAT corporation's agreement, either, though we are (supposedly) protected from the members' usurpations and abuse of our rights by it.

Maybe it's time we got straight in our heads our true relationship to these documents and the people who are bound by their agreements to them. They have no effect on us. They only have an effect on the original signers, or those who agree, BY CONTRACT, to also be bound by the terms and conditions of those contracts.

THAT is why our rights are paramount to the privileges defined in their statutes. We are men and women. We are above the corporate rules, regulations, statutes, codes, etc. That is THEIR law, not ours.

When we all stop acting like members of the corporations and start acting like men and women with rights, then maybe they'll get the idea and we'll be left alone. Obviously that's going to take a little 're-education'. Especially with regard to historical documents, their meaning and effects - and to whom their terms and conditions apply.

My suggestion is we use this anniversary of Magna Carta as a stepping off stone to renew our slighted and savaged freedoms, and very pointedly to remove the offending bureaucrats and govt. officials who massage their own interests at the expense of our own. Put plainly, what this country needs is an enema.

Obama Admin Seeks to Repeal Second Amendment Apart from Congress Via Executive Order

Let's get one thing straight. I don't care how many people are calling on the federal government to regulate guns, they have never been given authority to do so. Furthermore, since Congress is the legislative body, not the Executive Branch, then neither the President nor the Justice Department has any authority to write the law as they see fit.

If you recall, following the Sandy Hook shooting Barack Obama came out in classic taqiyyah-style and claimed to be able to "respect the Second Amendment" while at the same time ignoring and undermining it.

"We can respect the Second Amendment while keeping an irresponsible law-breaking few from inflicting harm on a massive scale," he said.

No, Obama, you cannot. As soon as you write and enforce executive orders on a subject which you have not been given authority over, you are not respecting the Second Amendment. You are breaking the law, and as such, you should be impeached, then charges should be brought against you for breaking the law and a just punishment rendered.

Now if we can only convince the U.S. Executive branch of government to do the same.

"Now if we can only convince the U.S. Executive branch of government to do the same."

Unfortunately, none of the three branches of our Federal Government feel they need to pay any attention to what We the People want except at election time. In part because that's what We the People have taught them to believe. The misfeasance, malfeasance and nonfeasance started first with us. Occasionally one of them gets caught with their hand so far in the cookie jar or down some under age constituent's pants that their own peers force them out. Those are exceptions to the rule of 97% elective retention of incumbants. Since the founding of the Republic, impeachment has been used effectively so infrequently that it has become a "dog bites man" story.

What did Franklin say about impeachment as preferable to assassination?

What was it that Chairman Mao said about the origins of political power?

What the *&%^ are We the People going to do about it?

Short of some documented proof that Obummer molested his daughters, or fucked his mother..what do you suggest? oh...wait..yeah. Armed insurrection. right. Call me when you've assembled 2-3 million armed citizens ready to surround WDC and drag these scumbag psychopaths from the granite palaces and burn them alive in the streets. Otherwise, I suggest you do a little research on what a legal imperialism really is. Then.. go back to sleep and wake up thanking your lucky stars you still have the Second Amendment...personally.
