“For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury”

July 4, 2018:

Forced arbitration is depriving us of our day in court.

From Citizen Wells February 20, 2008.

“Ever since I first read the US Declaration of Independence as a child, I have loved the message, wording and spirit of this incredible declaration. I still have a copy that I framed as a child and I still look upon it with reverence. I especially love the paragraph beginning, “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.” We should treasure these words and the entire document, never take it for granted and reread it as often as possible. My ancestor was a signer of the Tryon Resolves, almost a year before the US declaration. That fact makes the US declaration even more special for me. Here is the US Declaration of Independence:

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America

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 dissolutions, 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 endeavoured 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 benefit 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 neighbouring 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 compleat 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 endeavoured 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.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. 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.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these united Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States, that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. — And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.”

    “Those who do not learn from history are bound to repeat it”

    ……..Good morning. With respect to Honest Abe’s famous statement, about perverting our Constitution, we are now seeing many attempts by the left to do just that..It is both sickening and extremely angering to witness. Where it will all end is anybody’s guess……….but things don’t look good.
    HAPPY 4TH !!!

  3. oldsailor86

    ……….while I’m not sure that Abe was right about EVERYTHING, being a believer in Abolition was certainly a doctrine which he eventually paid the supreme price for advocating.

  4. oldsailor86

    ………..Happy Independence Day to all CW people.


  5. oldsailor86

    ………While the Declaration of Independence remains what it is I have a small problem believing that it made any direct or indirect references to mandated arbitration. Yet I wonder if there wasn’t a smidgeon of that notion in the minds of those who signed the document……THE NOTION BEING GET WHAT YOU CAN, AND THEREAFTER MOVE FORWARD IN THE DIRECTION OF SELF GOVERNANCE..

    Dust devil, probably not.
    Regular devils, devil’s advocates, surrounded.

  8. If all men are created equal, that is final. If they are endowed with inalienable rights, that is final. If governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed, that is final. No advance, no progress can be made beyond these propositions.

    Calvin Coolidge
    and lets MAGA and have a Happy Fourth.

    ………….when I read about the dust devil I thought maybe it was a MINI TORNADO, since the air was visibly saturated with weed debris. Many years ago I myself drove up I-5 to Portland Oregon, but my drive was in early November. Given the fact that Oregon is LIBERAL LA LA land anything can happen.

    “20lbs Of Human Waste” – Major Medical Convention Abandons San Francisco Citing Street Safety”

  12. oldsailor86

    …………and when California becomes a sanctuary state the 20 lbs of human excrement will morph into 100,000lbs each day. Lets see how they like the smell of Muslim manure. Lets open the doors wide at the border just like what the liberal halfwits want…….but lets ship all of the illegals to the sanctuary cities. The $HIT smell is probably OK with the leaders of the sanctuary cities. I am sure Mzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. IMPORTANT at Oakland California will love the STINK………..they wallow in EXCREMENT.

  13. Pruit out. The only really effective cabinet secretary on Trumps staff.

    And he’s out because of all the bogus charges made against him by democrats because of the fact that he was so effective. The charges are bogus.

    Just another reason why i’m done supporting Trump. Screw him. He dumped the best guy on his en-tire staff because his traitorous advisors, the ones who constantly leak everything he does, no doubt, told him to get rid of Pruit.

    I only support the conservative agenda. I’ve come to the conclusion that there is no conservative that can ever be supported, only the conservative agenda.

  14. oldsailor86

    ………….you and I share these sympathies. Our once great country is still being controlled by CRIMINAL POLITICIANS who are intent on making their CABAL rich. We no longer have a United States of America…….we now have a Divided States of America……..and our destruction is certain if the pieces of manure at the helm continues to pilot our ship. We are in perilous waters now.

  15. oldsailor86

    ……… is more than disheartening to witness the half witted verbal attacks on everybody …..even those who are only remotely involved with CONSERVATISM, or President Trump. As I see and hear the MORONIC attacks against Trump by LESS than half wits like Mzzzzzzzzzz. Waters. We are now seeing our misguided young people march up and down our streets chanting their moronic expletives, and verbally attacking people at restaurants. Collectively this tells me that the worst is yet to come. LOCK, AND LOAD!

  16. oldsailor86

    ………..I too am feeling some concern about Trumps intentions. I keep seeing him make what I view as one mistake after another. Perhaps what I am seeing has been absent for so long that I have simply forgotten how true leaders behave. In that same thought frame appears the face of Abraham Lincoln, and Teddy Roosevelt. While I hold Lincoln in high esteem, I look upon Roosevelt as a brash, and often errant POTUS. We seem to have another Roosevelt in office.

  17. oldsailor86

    AND A FEW……..
    ………..moments ago I watched Mzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Areu go completely crazy on Hannity tonight. You only needed to look into the CRAZED expression on her face. Her eyeballs looked like they were about to blow out of her head. Atom Sniff has nothing on her!!!! She sounds like Mzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Waters………LUNATIC!!!!

  18. oldsailor86

    AND NOW……..
    ……….the rabid, mentally unbalanced, odorous, foaming at the mouth POS liberal democrats are now trying to pin their idiotic worn out sexual abuse BS against Jim Jordan…….still.more half wit liberals think they can destroy him with filthy allegations against him. In truth their sick perverted accusations are founded in their own personal life conduct. What they accuse him of originates from their own actual personal conduct. Some folks simply call them ANIMALS, This is UNTRUE……..animals are what they are by nature, the LIBERAL BASTARDS are what they are BY CHOICE………..they love the filth they wallow in each day.

    …………..California is again on fire. They must have let some more of their cured PYRO MANIACS out of the insane asylum. More than likely there will be more death and destruction before they are once again rounded up and re incarcerated at their local BOOBY HATCH.

  23. oldsailor86

    …………..hope you have a good running emergency fire pump, and a big lake close by. Somehow I get the feeling that the CRAZIES are going to try to burn California to the ground.!!!!

    …………..a conversation with a wasp. Today I had a very interesting encounter…….of ANOTHER KIND. I was sitting out on my deck sipping my coffee when out of nowhere came a wasp who for some unknown reason landed on the back of my left hand. I watched him for a few seconds and it occurred to me that if he was there to attack me he would have done so immediately. Instead he just seemed to be contented to walk around on the back of my hand. After a while I began to wonder whether he could hear or not… I said Hello to him…..he immediately stopped walking and sort of froze where he stood. I then said to him ” How are you doing today”? He started making his wings hum. I then said “How do you like the weather we are having”? He buzzed his wings once again. After a few more seconds he took off and I haven’t seen him since. I found the whole thing sort of amusing, because he seemed to be trying to answer me by buzzing his wings. In a way I almost felt connected with the wasp. It was possibly the strangest event that I can ever remember. Perhaps it was the odor of the soap which I had used to wash my hands just before I went out on the deck which attracted him…….whatever the case I found it to be an interesting encounter. Sort of MADE MY DAY!
