The Declaration of Independence: A Transcription
IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.
He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.
He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.
He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.
He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.
He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.
He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:
For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences
For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.
He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.
He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.
He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.
In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.
Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Brittish brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.
We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.
The 56 signatures on the Declaration appear in the positions indicated:
Thomas Heyward, Jr.
Thomas Lynch, Jr.
Charles Carroll of Carrollton
Richard Henry Lee
Thomas Nelson, Jr.

A part of citizenship is to recognize and respect the flag. Muslims don’t do this, in fact, they want all flag displays banned. Muslims should be the ones banned, as they feel no allegiance to our flag and country. That should be automatic citizenship loss/denial. We need to check names on petitions and complaints from Muslims, in order to charge ALL of them, and not just the ones who show up to protest.
Happy 4th, USA!

Jefferson and Adams were right with their responses to the Muslim problem, one had to fight a war against them, the other observed that we will be fighting them forever.

It’s very suspicious that the explosion in New York City’s Central Park took place right across from the funeral of Holocaust survivor and Nobel winner Eli Wiesel. I suspect it was a terror attack.
Rest in eternal peace with the angels, dear Eli Wiesel, you taught that we should never be silent. But always speak out. Thank you for your great contribution to the world!
Please Merciful God, Save the foot and the leg of the young teenager. Thank You God, Amen.
‘It just demolished his foot’: Holiday horror as tourist, 18, mutilates limb after stepping on homemade bomb hidden in Central Park
WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT
Tourist Connor Golden, 18, had his foot ‘severely mutilated’, a friend said
His friends say he jumped off a rock and landed on the device
Police say it was most likely a firework or explosive made by an enthusiast
They don’t believe it was designed to explode on contact, but was unstable
It was left in an out-of-the-way location where few people go
The device is believed to have been left there for at least a day
Police said they don’t believe Golden or his friends made the device
Golden is in ‘stable condition’ and undergoing surgery to save his foot

…………………The explosion went off near to where the funeral for Holocaust survivor and Nobel winner Eli Wiesel was taking place on Sunday morning.
But there is nothing to suggest the blast was related to the service.
New York Times reporter Sarah Maslin Nir Tweeted at the time: ‘Outside Eli Wiesel’s funeral I heard a huge explosion just now. Running into Central Park and found a young man with his left leg blown off.

The finest Budweiser/Clydesdale team clip only aired one time. It still brings tears to my eyes, so here it is:
The true story behind the 9/11 Budweiser…

SL, that is my all time favorite which I post every 9/11.
July 4, 2016 @ 6:14 pm
It was telecast only one time, don’t know why. Thanks for posting it. Magnificent clip!

They are magnificent animals. I met them in person one time.

America and all BNI. Happy 4th of July!

Only muslim to blame is barak obama!!! The rest of the blame goes to the people of the USA for electing him, not once, but TWICE!!!

America is not nearly as heavily-armed as it should be. Many have become sissy’s because of evil politicians, educators and media. Possession of the tools of freedom has been severely reduced by many infringements of the Second Amendment with the National Firearms Act of 1934 and the Gun Control Act of 1968 being the most sinister.

LONG LIVE AMERICA! LONG LIVE the FREE WORLD!
Happy 4th of July, America!

Islam was America’s enemy since the dawn of the republic. Remember reading about the Barbary Pirates? “To the shores of Tripoli”?
July 4, 2016 @ 1:04 pm
I LOVE YOU AMERICA!

240 years and she is still beautiful ! yes I remember how she was before she was defiled by muslims but she is still the Grandest Lady the world has ever known … Happy Birth Day My Love
July 4, 2016 @ 2:33 pm
Beautiful comment, BLR!
America has always been a Beacon of Freedom Shining her Light to the World!
Freedom! Our Fight for Freedom continues as America and every non-Muslim nation is threatened with the Greatest Threat to Freedom the World has ever known — Islam.

Muslims will be hiding today like their pedophile prophet when it was not molesting children and leading desert pirate raids on trader caravans. I almost ran into an inpromptu rally of 25 Flag and Banner waving Veteran supporters Thursday afternoon on Jackson by Courts Bldg. If they had ran into muslims then mayhem would have ensued.
July 4, 2016 @ 12:19 pm
Did they also complain about Fireworks last year ?
July 4, 2016 @ 12:17 pm
They should have never been allowed to enter this country, not even one of them!!
July 4, 2016 @ 12:49 pm
They shouldn’t be allowed to live!!! None of them!!! Anywhere!!!
