Is Anyone Paying Attention?

The language of our Declaration of Independence sounds afresh in news casts, and social networks.

“The history of the present King of Great Britain…” echoes the behavior of the POTUS.

“He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good…” The POTUS insists that making it easier for our population to vote will open flood gates of fraud, although there is no evidence for such an assertion.

“He has endeavored to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for the Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither…” The POTUS’ obsession with preventing access to our borders has just such an effect.

“He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to Civil Power…” Conference calls to Governors of States, Rose Garden rants and Bible-waving photo-ops by the POTUS do threaten Martial Law.

Great Britain’s King was held responsible for “cutting Trade with all parts of the world.” Today’s newspaper reports that China will cease imports of US pork and soy beans in its trade war with the POTUS, thus threatening US agriculture.

“He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us…” In every State, in cities large and small the voices of the unheard have irrupted from demonstrations to destruction and the POTUS can only demand tougher responses.

“When, in the Course of human events… such has been the patient sufferance…it is their right, it is their duty…” to oust such loathsome administration.

    • Skip,
      Your response is much appreciated. Little chance though that anything I write will be heard beyond a very limited audience. I just cannot let obvious connections go without comment. I feel better having called attention to what should be quite easy to discern. In short, I like to punch, sneakily or otherwise. I gotta tell you though that when someone like you notices, I grin with real satisfaction.

  6. Sadly, the Dumpsters can’t see this. They will always blame Dems, libs, socialists, et al for the actions of their lord and savior Dump.

    • Yep, there are but 40 or so subscribers to this blog and I’m certain none are Dumpsters. There is no convincing His Ochre’s following in any event. There’s not only no cure for senselessness you can’t communicate through it either.

  7. Glad someone is listening, RH! Give your HOUSEmate our hugs!
