    • Yes, Jenner; and, it is a symptom of the sort of fuzzy thinking that has gotten us into this mess as a nation. Proper spelling, punctuation, and grammar are all examples of a mind trained to look at details, and think clearly. American citizens have had huge defects in their education for years. Result: a breaking-down of the social order. Well done, those who have been able to overcome their educational handicap and still see the differences between right and wrong.

    Kibitzer3, you are right. Another reason that I hate postings with bad spelling and grammar is that those mistake-ridden postings may be the work of closet Democrat trolls who want to make people think that we conservatives are stupid.

      I've actually often wondered about that myself, PierceArrow. I can't tell you how many such gross errors I have found in conservative threads. And I don't want to waste my time in perusing liberals' sites & threads to see what the story is on that side of the aisle.
      If I see one more it's when they mean its...... :-)

      Kibitzer 3, where have you been? Someone has finally posted a good yet brief argument on the importance of proper spelling and grammar.

    Eric Holder has exactly zero authority to tell states what the "Supremacy Clause" means. Just ask the guy who wrote the Constitution:
    "The states, then, being the parties to the constitutional compact, and in their sovereign capacity, it follows of necessity, that there can be no tribunal above their authority, to decide in the last resort, whether the compact made by them be violated; and, consequently, that, as the parties to it, they must themselves decide, in the last resort, such questions as may be of sufficient magnitude to require their interposition."
    James Madison, Virginia Report of 1799-1800.

    Excellent quote, Sweaty. Thanks for posting it.
    Would that more citizens would so review their nation's founding attitudes and quotes. Yes, the Constitution can be amended; and, there is a legal way to do it, and an illegal way. Unfortunately, the Left has decided to go the illegal route (making words mean what they say they mean, not what they were intended to mean when ratified into the contract) - and have gotten away with it, so many times. Too many times. The Constitution is almost a worthless document.
    Almost. And therein lies our generation's call to action.


    Item No. 2: 
    A beginning-to-wrap-it-up blog of mine, that I call 'Spreading Around The Wealth':

    Today I received in the snail mail a letter from Sen. Marco Rubio asking for, what else, a donation.1  And though I am basically supportive of him,2 this was my response to him.  Or at least, to this request:

    'Dear Senator Rubio,

    'As much as I think that you are doing a good job in general, I'm afraid that we don't agree on the 'illegal alien' issue.*  

    'Illegal is illegal.  To give in to the 'fudge' mindset is to court a total breakdown of the rule of law.

    'I'm sorry that this is the case between us.  But accordingly, I cannot in all good conscience support your request for a financial contribution to your 'Rubio Victory Committee'.  I don't want you winning this battle of the overall war.

    'My sympathies lie more with those who have been patiently waiting their turn to become immigrants to this 'land of opportunity' - like your parents (presumably) did.

    Yours sincerely,

    'Stan' Stanfield

    (If I had it to do over, I would add a
    P.S. You talk in your letter about "the electoral, demographic landscape of America" as a crucial matter to be reckoned with.  The implication is that we must 'appeal' to those demographics in order to be elected.  But you also talk about raising your kids to be "responsible citizens of the United States of America".  An illegal alien is, by definition, not someone who can be presumed to become a 'responsible' citizen.
         Let them wait their turn, like all those other potential "responsible citizens" who wish to come to this country - legally.)   


    * Let's call 'em as they are.  'Undocumented workers' is a euphemism; a copout.  It doesn't do the matter, and situation, justice.  (Just a little clarifying interposition here, for this blog.)  



    1 One of many such missives that I have received since returning to the States, asking me to support their worthy causes.  And they are.  I just don't have the financial wherewithal to 'spread the wealth' (of my meager Social Security pension and savings) around to any great extent.  Would that I could do more, in this regard.  There are a lot of these sorts of causes out there.  I hadn't realized that there were quite so many, until I started getting such request letters from causes that I had never heard of before.  These mailing lists must breed with each other, with a life force of their own, out of sight of us mere mortals, who at the most can have only three or four 'babies' at a time...  

    2 (in the basic words of his Reply letter:)
    'Dear Senator Rubio,
         'You're right.  The GOP's vision for economic independence, upward mobility, and traditional values that respect the family unit should be a popular message for any American - no matter what color or creed or nation of origin.
         'Your life is the embodiment of the American Dream: the son of hardworking immigrants who pinched pennies and worked two jobs to start a life of opportunity in our country.  We must communicate the GOP's message of upward mobility and economic freedom to grow our party and win in 2014 and again in 2016.
         'That's why I'm supporting your efforts today with my most generous contribution of -
         'Wait a minute.  What's your position regarding illegal aliens, again???'... 



    And here I am, still responding to the life situation as it is.  When what I really want to do is to move the scene on; and say to The People:

    "Okay; that's it.  Time to move on from here, folks.  There is to be no more of an issue of 'family values', and of "convincing [the] key demographics [of blacks, Hispanics, and the under-30 'vote'] to increase their support for the GOP" anyway, for example, because we are leaving behind the realm of illusion, the matrix of Karma and Duality, and moving up to a state of Unity; aka full consciousness.

    "The time for play-acting - to learn lessons from the drama; playing, and exchanging, parts over and over - now a prince, now a pauper; now a male, now a female; now of one race or religion or nationality, now of another - is over.  Take your real positions, now, as part of The One."

    It is only in a realm of Duality - of the illusion of separation; that we are separate from each other and from our Creator, when, in truth, We Are All One - that these sorts of questions (of 'family values', and socialism vs. conservatism and such) are meaningful.  As positions to take, to learn lessons from.  

    The Party - or at least the part-playing - is over.

    It's time for the real thing.  

    Time, that is to say, to have first a 'debrief', a sort of wrapping-up Truth & Reconciliation process, to tie up some of the loose ends of the drama we have been engaged in; for a very long time.  And then we move on.

    To say:

    Up.  (In frequency/vibration/dimension. Inheriting our Light bodies.)

    And in perfect timing, it would appear.
