April 19th events from history:
First day of the Revolution — April 19, 1775 — Battle of Lexington and Concord
April 19, 1993 — fire at Branch Davidian home and church
On April 19, 1995 — at 9:02 a.m., a truck bomb exploded in front of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City
But let’s put this into perspective…
The fire at the Branch Davidian home and church was a decision made by the leader of that religious cult.
The OKC bombing happened because a man made the decision to show the government what brute force looked like.
The first day of the Revolution was to make our country independent and free.
The other two events were because some men thought they were above the law and did damage to our country.
And God help us if we intermix how our country was formed to be independent and free and the ability for Americans to decide when to show our country what brute force looks like and bring nothing but destruction.
I’m afraid that is what is happening today in the angry mobs of the Tea Party. They are intermixing the wrong motive with the right motive.
Well, ya know, some people are better than other people. And, it seems evil liberals are the worst kind of people! They aren’t deserving of even being treated with dignity, let alone being loved! Did you hear those evil liberals are in the majority in Congress and have one of their own in the White House!?
The surest way to lose a Right, a Freedom or a Liberty is to abuse them.
Give reason to those who wish to abolish any of the three.
With all three comes responsibility and reasonability less those Rights, Freedoms and Liberties become a reason to lose them.
This is not a good time of the year:
04-20 – Hitler’s birthday
04-20 – Columbine murders take place…
My experience is that today and tomorrow are important days to take off, if you do emergency service type of work.
Certain days and during full moons. I’ve worked in hospitals and I swear, there is something to that old myth about the full moon making humans act strange.
Know what I think?
I think that every person in this country should be forced to carry a pistol. We should wear them in open holsters, like in the Wild, Wild, West.
Also, I believe that we should make the Southern Baptist* religion the official and mandatory religion of the entire nation. Anyone not participating will suffer a 10% surtax on income.
You want guns? You want religion? I say, make ’em mandatory. Then we’ll see who really believes in this stuff.
*selected because of (fairly) recent convention at which they decided that women, indeed, should submit to their husbands.
I like that idea! Those who are pushing for everyone to have a gun and for religion to play a bigger role in our government, our lives, our schools… would be the first to complain!
I definitely think there should be more guns in church.
Paula – there was a church in Kentucky (I think) where the preacher did have a ‘bring your gun to church’ day.
I remember reading about that and shaking my head to think that their church sure did have a preacher that espoused all the teachings of Jesus – NOT.
I am an advocate of even irresponsible speech, but I think Bachmann’s tirade was “directing and/or inciting imminent lawless action” (the Brandenburg test).
Bachmann was telling her supporters to not send in their census form.
Isn’t the census a mandatory thing established by our Founding Fathers?
And don’t all U.S. Representatives have to take an oath to uphold our laws when they are sworn in?
So, why isn’t anyone questioning Bachmann’s loyalty to our country? Why isn’t anyone holding her feet to the fire about not upholding her oath to follow our laws?
Why isn’t anyone on the Republican side bothered by the fact that Bachmann seems to think our Founding Fathers are not to be emulated?
I also believe in free speech but there is a line that has been crossed numeous times. And it started in the 2008 campaign after McCain picked Ms Northern Lights as his sidekick.
