"...remember that a constitution which gives to the people so much freedom, and entrusts them with so much power, rests for its permanency, on their knowledge and virtue.  An ignorant people are easily betrayed, and a wicked people can never be ruled by the mild influence of their own laws.  If you would be free -- if you would see your country grow in all that constitutes true greatness --cultivate knowledge -- flee from vice.  The virtuous citizen is the true noble.  He who enlightens his understanding -- controls his passions -- feels for his country's honor -- rejoices in her prosperity -- devotes to her advancement the fruits of his mind, and consecrates to her cause, his time, his property, and his noblest powers, such a man is one of God's nobility; he needs neither riband, nor star; his country knows and remembers his name; nor could any title add to its honor, or to his reward.  We have seen such men among us; we hope to see many more.  And though the glory of giving to their country such a Constitution as this, is what none but they have been so blessed as to enjoy, yet you succeed to a task, but one degree removed from it, that of preserving what they have committed to your virtue, unsullied and unimpaired."

Be this.

Taken from the Conclusion of the Elementary Catechism on the Constitution of the United States for the use of schools by Arthur J. Stansbury. (only $2 on Kindle). :)

I'm putting this little gem of a book on the shelf and am so glad the boys and I worked our way through it.  We have learned so much!  May we be "one of God's nobility."

So, I've found this new "artist" that I feel a little uncomfortable about liking, but he's edgy, non-p.c, and pretty much right on.

"You're almost seeing what happened in the beginning of World War II happening right in front of you.  ...It could very easily be happening again...  A young Jewish guy was telling me - because I did these Obama Hitler flags -  he's like, 'Oh, you can't compare Obama to Hitler.'  And I said, 'Well, see the problem is when you put Hitler on this unreachable pedestal that makes it that much more likely that another Hitler's gonna come in from the back door.'  And he said, 'Well, it offends me because my grandfather escaped from a concentration camp and Obama hasn't done anything near what Hitler has done.'  I said, 'No, he hasn't...yet. And let's hope that he doesn't.  I don't mean to offend your grandfather, but what I'm trying to do is to keep his keep his grandson from suffering the same fate.'"  ~Sabo
Brilliantly said.

See his interview with Glenn Beck here.  He's been "vandalizing" the L.A. area and taking it by storm.

Warning: his images are graphic and offensive to many.

"...the United States is one of only four countries (along with China, North Korea, and Canada) that allow abortion at any time before birth: It came about through the arrogance of judicial power."
~Marvin Olansky.  "Arrogant Power". 

"We don't define a child born with fetal alcohol syndrome as the alcoholic's baby, but when it comes to issues of rape it's easier to dehumanize that child."  (Fewer than 1% of abortions are due to rape or incest.)
~Ryan Bomberger, conceived in rape.

Daily Light. June 2, morning.

Thus you shall eat it: with a belt on your waist.
So you shall eat it in haste.
It is the Lord's Passover.

Arise and depart, for this is not your rest.  Here we have no continuing city but we seek the one to come.  There remains therefore a rest for the people of God.

Let your waist be girded and your lamps burning; and you yourselves be like men who wait for their master, when he will return from the wedding, that when he comes and knocks they may open to him immediately.  Blessed are those servants whom the master, when he comes, will find watching.  Gird of the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.  One thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, …I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.  Therefore let us, as many as are mature, have this mind.
