- my choice of the word “shamelessly” was mostly facetious. the only semi-serious intent that word might hold was that i had no shame in the pro-America-anti-pelosi-ness of the content.
- if i had intended to truly plagiarize the piece, i would not have provided links to the original.
- harvey of imao has stated that neither he nor frank j is upset about this.
- as my archives can show, my habit is to provide a shorter excerpt with a “read the rest”-style link.
- the spirit of the length of this copied portion was to reinforce the seriousness of the threat that president hussein-o and his cronies are to the foundations of America.
everybody cool now? i think the affected parties are…
update 1: wooohooo, it’s an imaolanch! thanks
Well, Nance, as long as we’re plucking random phrases from the D of I and hotgluing them to Obamacare, here’s a few more choice nuggets from the document you so obviously revere that might be more appropriately attached to this President and his sundry legislations:
- whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it
- a long train of abuses and usurpations
- a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism
- repeated injuries and usurpations
- the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States
- refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
- forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance
- utterly neglected to attend
- the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures
- his invasions on the rights of the people
- exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without
- obstructed the Administration of Justice
- sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance
- subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution
- abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments
- works of death, desolation, and tyranny
- Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation
- excited domestic insurrections amongst us
- Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury
- deaf to the voice of justice
- A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.
