Interesting statistic: the 85 richest people in the world own more than the 3.5 billion poorest people <em>combined</em>.  Some people will claim that those 85 rich folks worked hard to earn their money while the poor are just lazy.  Some claim that if the poor just worked harder they too could be rich.

Is speaking in some foreign language an insult to our home language?
If you value your life, your family, your future, your grandchildren’s futures, being an American and being able to ‘live the American Dream‘…then please take the time to read what I have to say. Have we long forgotten what the Declaration of Independence states? What it stands for and why it was written? "When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world. *He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good. *He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them. *He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only. *He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures. *He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people. *He has refused for a long time, after such dissolution, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within. *He has endeavored to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands. *He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers. *He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries. *He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance. *He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures. *He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power. *He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their *Acts of pretended Legislation: *For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us: *For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States: *For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world: *For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent: *For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury: *For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences *For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighboring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies: *For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments: *For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever. *He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us. *He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people. *He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to complete the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation. *He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands. *He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions...etc." (http://www.archives.gov/exhibits/charters/declaration_transcript.html) This Independence Day, July 4th, 2014 remember "..it is their (the People's) right, it is their (The People's) duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their (The People's) future security." The People; meaning You, me, all American Citizens!! Let us come together as American Citizens - men & women, rich & poor, Caucasian & African & every beautiful race in between inhabiting this great nation, not as Democrats or Republicans to abolish the current government and institute a new, in touch with society, once again regulated and respected government!! As it is our Right and our Duty to do so!! As Thomas Jefferson once wrote, "...God forbid we should ever be 20. years without such a rebellion. The people can not be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty. We have had 13. states independent 11. years. There has been one rebellion. That comes to one rebellion in a century and a half for each state. What country ever existed 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 arms. The remedy is to set them right as to 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 it's natural manure." -Thomas Jefferson Nov. 13, 1787 (http://www.monticello.org/site/jefferson/tree-liberty-quotation) We are long over do my fellow Americans. We need to get out of this mindset that we can't do anything about what is going on in our nation. Need we be reminded that our government is a government of the people, by the people, for the people? I know I do not need to point out the problems with today’s government, one only has to turn on the news or do a brief internet search if they wish to inform themselves. I know I probably shouldn’t remind you that we, as a nation, are but a joke to the rest of the world now. I am not going to discuss the problems with the POTUS, for he is merely a fraction of the issue. I’m sure you’ve all heard the quote by Mark Twain, “Politicians and diapers must be changed often, and for the same reason.” Pretty accurate as they get quite full of shit. Not to mention they have been in their position so long they can no longer even relate to 99% of the rest of the American population. They have no empathy for how we live, how hard we work, how much time we give up, how much of our lives we waste working to be able to feed, shelter, and clothe ourselves just to live for the next day to do it all over again!! I can’t be the only one who feels like this isn’t what we’re supposed to be doing as humans. Things need to change, and they’re not going to change by themselves. We the people need to address this once and for all, we the people need to come together as a people who are tired of the ignorance & abuse shown by the government. We have so many men and women willing to serve and fight in different countries, why can’t we at home find the balls to finally do something for our country?! We are the citizens, we are the courts, we are the judges, we are the employers, let them be remembered. This Independence Day marks our 238th birthday as an Independent nation. Let us celebrate it by joining together in Washington D.C. for a sit in. Bring food, water, tents, reading material, music, anything that will allow you to be comfortable as we sit and peacefully force ourselves to be heard once and for all. If you are worried about your job, remind your boss and everyone you work with that what you are doing IS THE MOST IMPORTANT, MOST AMERICAN, and MOST PATRIOTIC duty of all American people! This HAS to happen! We can no long rely on their “checks and balances.” So, please share this. Do something for your country. Be a part of something bigger than you. Be a part of the change. Thank you all for taking the time to read this. I sincerely hope you understand how important this is. From one pissed off patriotic American
