Everyone knows and understands the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, right? Well…for those who may have forgotten, [and there probably aren’t any readers here who have] it reads thusly:
||A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
The original hand-written copy of the Bill of Rights, approved by the House and Senate, was prepared by scribe William Lambert and resides in the National Archives.
Another version is found in the copies distributed to the states, and then ratified by them, which had this capitalization and punctuation:
|A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.
Over the weekend, Federal agencies raided and arrested several members of the Hutaree group in Michigan, while, contrary to CNN figures, 54% of Americans favor repeal of the health care bill which was strong armed by Pelosi and Reid and signed by the Usurper in the White House.
Things continue to heat up on all fronts and we’re meeting, as we always do on Monday nights at 8, to discuss it!

The violence has begun, folks. With 64% of the American people AGAINST the version of health care that Congress has insisted on passing, Americans are finally fighting back in ways that only begin to express the level of rage they feel against those who are derelict in their duty to represent them.
Videos of car blowing horns in protest against this bill in Arizona appeared recently, but that was nothing compared to the violence that has begun to surface as those who betrayed their constituents begin to feel the brunt of the rage by those betrayed.
Bricks have been thrown through Representatives’ office windows, notably that of Upstate New Yorki’s Louise Slaughter, of “Slaughter House Rule” fame.
Gird your loins, folks. Get that extra water and dried rice and beans ready. It has begun. We warned them. Our lawful entreaties fell on deaf ears. They have betrayed us for the last time. The cry of “VOTE THEM ALL OUT” has taken voice, and the bricks have begun to fly.
Nope…I don’t think Duck & Cover’s gonna work on this one. Oh, right…it doesn’t work against nuclear weapons either.

For all who could bear to watch, the death knell for our Constitution, our Country and our People tolled last night. The cravenness of District of Corruption politicians and their shifting allegiances, back door deals and intimidation tactics were never more obvious.
We have been had, folks. Despite 64%–that’s SIXTY-FOUR PERCENT–of the American peoples’ disapproval of Congress, they went ahead and did it anyway.
All we can hope is that they will not have been able to install the corruption clincher’s favorite tool, the electronic voting machines nationwide by November, for our only option now is to vote ALL of those craven, cowardly, despicable creatures OUT.
Remember this? It’s what so many of our servicemen and women have sacrificed their lives for. It is what they take an oath to preserve and protect. And now, Congress has defiled it by passing this insane stealth “health” care bill, which includes FINES FOR THOSE AMERICANS WHO DO NOT WANT OR CANNOT AFFORD TO BUY HEALTH INSURANCE.
Join me tonight to continue the rant. http://blogtalkradio.com/the-dame-truth

So saith the warning to Caesar; but in fact, the Ides were, at the time, simply a word to designate the 15th of any month. According to Borgna Bruner of the website “InfoPlease,”
The soothsayer’s warning to Julius Caesar
, “Beware the Ides of March,” has forever imbued that date with a sense of foreboding. But in Roman times the expression “Ides of March” did not necessarily evoke a dark mood—it was simply the standard way of saying “March 15.” Surely such a fanciful expression must signify something more than merely another day of the year? Not so. Even in Shakespeare’s
time, sixteen centuries later, audiences attending his play Julius Caesar
wouldn’t have blinked twice upon hearing the date called the Ides.
The term Ides comes from the earliest Roman calendar, which is said to have been devised by Romulus, the mythical founder of Rome. Whether it was Romulus or not, the inventor of this calendar had a penchant for complexity. The Roman calendar organized its months around three days, each of which served as a reference point for counting the other days:
- Kalends (1st day of the month)
- Nones (the 7th day in March, May, July, and October; the 5th in the other months)
- Ides (the 15th day in March, May, July, and October; the 13th in the other months)
The remaining, unnamed days of the month were identified by counting backwards from the Kalends, Nones, or the Ides. For example, March 3 would be V Nones—5 days before the Nones (the Roman method of counting days was inclusive; in other words, the Nones would be counted as one of the 5 days).
Lots going on these days–U.S.-Israel relations are the worst in 35 years; the stealth care bill remains a beleaguered battle ground, and the economy continues to plummet despite protestations to the contrary.
The list is endless and our job is cut out for us all. The Dame will even be late tonight, due to The Ides of March, as that is the day that her sister was born, and she celebrates it every year. So join us for a free-for-all potpourri a half hour later, at 8:30 PM EDT–yes, folks, Daylight Savings Time is here once again, to make us tired all day for the first week, but giving us an extra hour of light at the end of those long days!
