George Washington’s Thanksgiving Proclamation

November 27, 2008

gwashington

WHERAS it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor; and Whereas both Houses of Congress have, by their joint committee, requested me “to recommend to the people of the United States a DAY OF PUBLICK THANSGIVING and PRAYER, to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness:”

NOW THEREFORE, I do recommend and assign THURSDAY, the TWENTY-SIXTH DAY of NOVEMBER next, to be devoted by the people of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being who is the beneficent author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be; that we may then all unite in rendering unto Him our sincere and humble thanks for His kind care and protection of the people of this country previous to their becoming a nation; for the signal and manifold mercies and the favorable interpositions of His providence in the course and conclusion of the late war; for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty which we have since enjoyed;- for the peaceable and rational manner in which we have been enable to establish Constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national one now lately instituted;- for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed, and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge;- and, in general, for all the great and various favors which He has been pleased to confer upon us.

And also, that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech Him to pardon our national and other transgressions;- to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually; to render our National Government a blessing to all the people by constantly being a Government of wife, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed; to protect and guide all sovereigns and nations (especially such as have shown kindness unto us); and to bless them with good governments, peace, and concord; to promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and us; and, generally to grant unto all mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best.

GIVEN under my hand, at the city of New-York, the third day of October, in the year of our Lord, one thousand seven hundred and eighty-nine.

I don't Recall "W" making up his own podium when he was the President Elect?

I don't Recall "W" making up is own podium and mini seal when he was the President Elect back in 2000

On that day you can get a real podium and the OFFICIAL SEAL OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.  But until then, try to respect the office and the man currently occupying it, and remember this when 01-20-2013 rolls around, It will hit home after 4 years of sitting in the Oval Office.

GM G4 UPDATE-N5116 Pulled from FlightAware

November 25, 2008

Apparently the good folks at GM did not like the fact that so many of you were tracking their flights of fancy…they pulled the tracking off the net. N5116 can no longer be tracked by FlightAware.com.  Today, on their last flight they went this morning from Detroit to Washington DC, to Texas and this afternoon Naples Florida… Poor GM

Apparently they want to fly below the radar...

Change…Good News for the Guy Who Prints Business Cards

November 24, 2008

Depends on What the Definition of Change is...
Depends on What the Definition of Change is…

We were promised Change… Here it is:

Rahm- Your Title changes from Member of Congress to Chief of Staff
Hillary- Your title is changed from Senator to Secretary of State (Keep an eye on Bill Please)
Tom Daschle- Your title will be changed from “Disgraced former Senate Majority Leader” to Secretary of Health & Human Services.
Eric Holder- You will change to Attorney General from “Former Toady for Janet Reno”
Janet Napolitano- Change your title from “Governor of Arizona” to Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, because you have done such a good job keeping invaders from Mexico out of Arizona.
John Kerry- No Change for you, You’re just a tool and your wife is a loose cannon, sorry. But thanks for the endorsement, I couldn’t have won Massachusetts without you. No, That’s a lie, I had it in the bag, I just wanted to jerk you around as payback for doing such a poor job in 2004. Oh, you can have VICE PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN’S old title if that will make you feel better, Peace Out!

 

CHANGE: Yes We Can (Change Titles that is) or Change left in our pockets

Wealth Redistribution 101…Pay $10.00 for $1.00

November 21, 2008

Not even in office yet, PE-BHO (President Elect – Barack H. Obama) has already begun his ecconomic revival. (Please disredard the fact that the Dow was at 9,625 on election day and has dropped to 7,997) that’s 1,628 points or almost 17% in the days since his victory.

But you can celebrate anyway by paying almost $10 for a $1 coin…

What a Bargain!

Supreme court ruling on Obama’s eligibility for presidency
http://origin.www.supremecourtus.gov/docket/08-570.htm

Supreme Court Of The United States (SCOTUS) Justice David Souter has agreed that a review of the federal lawsuit filed by attorney Phil Berg against Barack Hussein Obama II, et al., which was subsequently dismissed for lack of standing is warranted. SCOTUS Docket No. 08-570 contains the details.

A review of that docket and the Rule 10 of the Supreme Court makes abundantly clear that Justice Souter’s granting of a review on the Writ of Certiorari is not a right entitled to citizen Phil Berg, but rather is a matter of judcial discretion based upon a compelling reason. That compelling reason is the Constitutional requirement that “No person except a natural born citizen … shall be eligible to the office of President…”Full Story
