Were something akin to the Athens, Tn incident to occur today the governor would send the National Guard, the FBI anti-terrorism task force would arrive and both state and federal Departments of homeland Security would dispatch SWAT type units and an army of investigators. The persons who confronted the corrupt politicians would be indicted probably in both state and federal courts and be described as terrorists in all the news media. The Sec. of Homeland Security would use the event to underline how dangerous combat veterans are and demand general civilian disarmament which the President would emphatically support. Times change and not for the better.
What is happening now is money and power to destroy America. Its intentional, in your face, and and so far successful.
I recently posted a challenge on facebook. I asked if any high school students or recent college grads could answer the following questions:
1) Can you quote Nathan Hale?
2)Give the location and signifance of the Old North Church.
3) Give the location and signifance of Lexington and Concord.
I was not even surprised at the number of people that could not answer these simple questions about our history. Even my 50 year old daughter with a masters degree and a CPA and my 22 year old granddaughter with 2 degrees and is a conservative could not answer those questions.
A seventh grade teacher from Arizona replied that she could answer the questions but she is required by the state to teach U.S. history beginning with the civil war and ending with the great depression. I don't know if every state has the same requirements.
It finally dawned on me why they teach U.S. history that way.
The evil white slaveowners were defeated and the evil white capitalists caused the great depression. Therefore the thing that is bad about America is the evil white man.
The reason that patriots are losing the war against Obama and the liberals is the following imo. As much as patriots complain that Obama and Congress are blatantly ignoring the federal government’s constitutionally limited powers, there is ample evidence that many patriots don’t have a clue about the Founding States’ division of fedral and state powers enumerated in the Constituton. And If Constitution-savvy patriots were to force Obama guard dog Fx News to put the Constituton’s Section 8 of Article I, Article V and the 10th Amendment on the public agenda, then the unconstitutionally big federal government could arguably be forced back into its Section 8-limited power cage overnight.
Correct usage of “than” vs. “then”:
