No, not this un-American, economy destroying, debt-increasing, wealth redistributing, geography-failing, golf-linking, teleprompter-reading, ass-kissing, bowing to kings and appeasing our enemies coward…
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MR. PRESIDENT!!
Pres. Jefferson even has some thoughts on debt as Chairman Zero decided to give his big 2012 budget speech today…
We must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. We must make our election between economy and liberty or profusion and servitude. If we run into such debt, as that we must be taxed in our meat and in our drink, in our necessaries and our comforts, in our labors and our amusements, for our calling and our creeds…[we will] have no time to think, no means of calling our miss-managers to account but be glad to obtain subsistence by hiring ourselves to rivet their chains on the necks of our fellow-sufferers… And this is the tendency of all human governments. A departure from principle in one instance becomes a precedent for[ another]… till the bulk of society is reduced to be mere automatons of misery… And the fore-horse of this frightful team is public debt. Taxation follows that, and in its train wretchedness and oppression.
…and my personal favorite in regards to banking and central economic control:
I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.
Sorry to inform you folks but Thomas Jefferson’s worst fear has come to pass; they own us now…
You SO ROCK. The Jefferson Memorial in DC is AMAZING and awe-inspiring. Love the pic-in-contrast. So very, very sad.
Thanks! I could not let the birthday of my absolute, favorite American pass overshadowed by the lies and political maneuvering of addict who is trying to get re-elected to the White House.
Thomas Jefferson is probably the smartest President we’ve ever had. There is no way anyone could compare him to the current POS stinking up the oval office.
Where did we gone wrong, from the intelligence and honour of the founding fathers to an illiterate street corner hustler who has fabricated his entire life and lied his way into the White house with the help of our congressmen, the MSN, and our senators.
Mr Jefferson, happy birthday from those of us who now dishonour you by allowing the NWO commies and the Muslims to destroy this great republic you helped create.
Over 200 years ago Jefferson warned us that ” We must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. We must make our election between economy and liberty or profusion and servitude.
If we run into such debt, as that we must be taxed in our meat and drink, in our necessaries and comforts, in our labors and our amusements, for our calling, our creeds, we will have no time to think, no means of calling our mis-managers to account, but be able to obtain subsistence by hiring out ourselves to rivet the chains on the necks of our fellow sufferers.
And this is the tendency of all human governments, a departure from principle in one instance becomes a precedent for another until the bulk of society is reduced to mere automatons of misery. And the fore-horse of this frightful team is public debt. Taxation follows that and in it’s train wretchedness, and oppression.
Amen, Mr. Jefferson, Rest in Peace.
Yep, I am firmly convinced that they have stopped spinning altogether now.
Jefferson was a genius and a giant among men, I wonder what he would think of the dope addled, mumbling, spineless, lying, fraudulent, Piece of crap currently occupying the oval office.
If I may, a couple more of my favourite Jefferson quotes:
“Single acts of tyranny may be ascribed to accidental opinion of the day; but a series of oppressions begun at a distinguished period, and pursued unalterably through every change of administrator too plainly proves a deliberate systematic plan of reducing us to slavery”
“What country ever existed for a century and a half without a rebellion? And what country can preserve it’s liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take up arms. The remedy is to set them right as to the facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two?
The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is a natural manure”
Time to listen to Mr, Jefferson and take our country back!
Thomas Jefferson will not stop spinning in his grave until we oust the usurper from Kenya and take our country back. And this usurper is not the only rascal that needs roasting. We have let scoundrels of all stripe rape and ravish our country under the name of political party politics and what they consider best for America. We gripe and belly ache about what is wrong, but other than a modest improvement in one election’s results, what are we doing? Thomas Jefferson was so right. The Tree of Liberty needs feeding again since nothing else seems to work. This Friday, April 13th, Income tax day would be a good time to start the ball rolling and choose a tree to use as a base. I think I’ll see what support I could get here and make a suggestion that others do the same in thier towns.
Thank you Diamond and Leaping Spark. What we needed to counter Oblahblah’s repugnant speech was a good dose of Thomas Jeffersons’ sayings.
Sorry, I meant Friday April 15th – tax day. I was so wrapped up in Jefferson’s birthday date that I mis-typed.
I was just thinking about you today and hoping that you are doing okay…had missed you.
Unfortunately, I believe the tree is going to be watered the old-fashioned way because the ass-clowns in DC are committed to draining every single penny of wealth from the lower classes and then discarding the dollar leaving the truly uninformed to fend for themselves. It’s one big dog and pony show for them.
Well, well, well, another arrogant, lying, boring, teleprompter speech from the street corner hustler from Kenya. Our Communist, Muslim POS always manages to say a lot while saying nothing of value, yet 40% of our population (idiots) still get so excited they pee themselves.
Sorry I digress, let us again enjoy a couple of quotes from the great American President Thomas Jefferson:
“No free man shall be debarred the use of arms. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms, is as a last resort to protect themselves against tyranny in the government.”
“A strong body makes the mind strong, as to the species of exercise. I advise the gun. While it gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise, and independence to the mind. Games played with balls, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walk.”
Mr. Jefferson was well aware of the challenges American was going to face in the future and in his writings he has provided the answers.
Unfortunately he did not foresee that our country would be over run with people who hate America through government approved illegal immigration, and through our children who have been fed a constant diet of political correctness and communism.
As I see it, our country is now 40% haters and communist, 40% people who don’t give a damn, 20% patriots, and 100% evil, corrupt, and lying politicians led by the NWO communist and Muslim, Obutthead.
It will be an up hill battle, do we have the guts for it?
A quote from the book I am reading now:
(and the important one)
The book sounds like some informative reading DT.
Three quotes from Jefferson 200 years ago that apply today with Obutthead and our corrupt leaders.
“I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.”
“An honest man can feel no pleasure in the exercise of power over his fellow citizen,”
“If people let government tell them what foods they can eat and what medicines they can take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny.”
These three are all happening right now under Obama’s NWO Communistic agenda as they are redistributing the wealth, shoving an unconstitutional healthcare bill down our throats against the will of the people, and Moochelle is telling people what they can eat.
WTF, and yet we do nothing but take it.
God bless Thomas Jefferson, I guess I better be mooooving along.
