This entire country is completely full of shit, and always has been, from the Declaration of Independence, to the Constitution, to the Star Spangled Banner, it’s really nothing more than one big steaming pile of red white and blue, all-American bullshit. Because think about how we started. Think of that. This country was founded by a group of slave owners that told us all men are created equal. Aw yeah, all men. Except for Indians and Niggers and women. Always like to use that authentic American language. This was a small group of unelected white male, land holding, slave owners who also suggested their class be the one allowed to vote. Now, that is what’s known as being stunningly and embarrassingly full of shit.

Three US Anti-Gov't Militia Members Sentenced for Plotting Deadly Attacks
Three US anti-government militia members were sentenced for conspiring to use weapons of mass destruction.
By Sputnik

Three anti-government militia members were sentenced in federal court for conspiring to use weapons of mass destruction to attack federal government targets, the US Justice Department (DOJ) said in a press release.

On Friday, Brian Cannon, Terry Peace, and Cory Williamson were sentenced to 12 years in prison each for planning to use homemade explosive devices against government targets in the US state of Georgia. They were also charged with inciting militia groups in other states to rise up in revolution against the government.

“In this case, anti-government ideology and rhetoric morphed into dangerous extremism and led these defendants to arm themselves and travel to a meeting to pick up pipe bombs and other explosives intended for attacks,” US Attorney John Horn said in the statement.

The three defendants participated in online chat forums where they formulated plans to attack government infrastructure using pipe-bombs. They also stated their goal of “forcibly removing" government officials they believe “acted beyond the scope of the US Constitution,” the DOJ said.

Rick Perry Compares Himself To Jesus During Rally That Ignores Bible And Constitution

Some people who classify themselves as “Christians” feel as though, lately, they are being oppressed. They feel as though the nation has “lost sight of God and our founding principles,” or something to that effect. One of those people is former Texas governor and Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry. In South Carolina there was a rally titled “We Stand With God” that took place on the…

August 18th 1920: 19th Amendment ratified

On this day in 1920, the Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution was ratified, thus enshrining women’s right to vote. The suffragette campaign stretched back into the nineteenth century, with the Seneca Falls Convention of 1848 listing male denial of women’s ‘inalienable right’ to vote as a crime against women. The focus on suffrage was promoted by the actions of feminist leaders like Susan B. Anthony, who was arrested in 1872 for voting in a presidential election. After the setback of the Civil War and the division of the feminist movement over issues of race and Reconstruction, feminist groups lobbied Congress for a constitutional amendment, which was first introduced in 1878 and defeated in 1886. The focus then shifted to state governments, with 22 states adopting female suffrage before 1919, and marches and pickets raising awareness of the cause. The suffragette movement was boosted by the involvement of women in the war effort during the First World War, and a proposed amendment was introduced in 1918, with the support of President Woodrow Wilson. This first attempt failed, but another amendment was eventually passed by Congress in June 1919, and narrowly ratified by the required number of states on August 18th 1920. The Southern states firmly opposed the amendment, and, one state short of ratification, it came down to Tennessee. Harry Burn, a 23-year-old state legislator in Tennessee, was convinced by his mother to break the tie and vote for the amendment, thus securing the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment; Burn declared that “a good boy always does what his mother asks him to do.” In the 1920 election, eight million American women voted for the first time.

ladies lookin for some rights at work

the Equal Rights Amendment:

Section 1. Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.

Section 2. The Congress shall have the power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.

Section 3. This amendment shall take effect two years after the date of ratification.

Get Rid of The second Amendment....

…They say but, take this into mind.  Our 2nd amendment is there to protect our rights and our lives from both foreign and DOMESTIC. Our “militia” is funded by the people but, they get deployed more by the government then ordinary soldiers. The national guard are just soldiers NOT here for our interest alone. They are not truely goin to protect our freedom. We have too. This is why gun rights exsist to Protect the rest of our rights, to protect us from a currupt government. 

“the government should be afraid of it’s people.” Not the other way around.

Let’s NOT be victims. And if YOU don’t mind being a victim. I won’t be a victim so don’t try to impose you’re narrow minded views on my life. Both foreign and domestic.

To Freedom.

Why Cops Can Swab Your DNA Without a Warrant
An arrest in St. Louis on Monday highlights the importance of two recent Fourth Amendment rulings.

Maryland’s DNA-collection statute could help solve crimes—but that doesn’t justify violating an arrestee’s Fourth Amendment rights. “No matter the degree of invasiveness, suspicionless searches are never allowed if their principal end is ordinary crimesolving,” he declared. He also nodded to the law’s more sinister implications in the aggregate. “Perhaps the construction of such a genetic panopticon is wise,” Scalia concluded. “But I doubt that the proud men who wrote the charter of our liberties would have been so eager to open their mouths for royal inspection.”

August 19th, 1812 | USS Constitution Defeats HMS Guerriere

1785, and a fledgling America has a bit of a problem: the Barbary corsairs were making a right royal pain in the ass of themselves. Sure, the 17th Century was the height of their pirating-like ways, but even as late as 1785, they were proving to be a nuisance to the rest of the world. Operating out of the ports Salé, Algiers, Tunis, and Tripoli; the Mediterranean was not a safe place to be plowing a merchant vessel through, or – for that matter – a place to live on the coast, lest you find yourself in shackles and sold off as a slave.

Let’s just say that the Mediterranean was not a particularly safe place to strap on some waterwings and take a dip.

Or West Africa’s entire Atlantic seaboard.

Or the North Atlantic.

Or even South America, for that matter.

Basically, if you were a modern, forward-thinking country, and you wanted to sail your rich little cargo over to someone willing to buy it, odds on back then, it might get intercepted by the Barbary corsairs and half-hitched into their floating bags-of-holding. Your lewts, they belongs to them. kthxbye.

And this was a right royal pain in the bank account for America. In 1793 alone, eleven American ships were captured and their crews and stores held for ransom, and that’s not the type of thing that you can balance out in your Excel spreadsheet. This was a serious problem, serious enough to get the big-wigs in Independence Hall all of a do as they considered what the heck they were going to do about it.

They decided on six of these guys:

Now, granted, this may not look like much … your run of the mill frigate with enough firepower to give a Barbary pirate pause for concern … but looks can be ever-so deceiving.

The designer of this fine looks vessel was one Joshua Humphreys, and Humphreys had a bold plan in mind. You see, while the older, more established European countries were floating around in 100-gun vessels such as this:

She has 112 freaking guns of face-ripping hell.

Humphreys’ vision was this:

Long, slim, fast as a little jack rabbit, and yet armed like a rabid American gun-nut riding an eagle.

‘Murica

The design was never intended to go toe-to-toe with a 1st Rate ship of the line – against those she’d escape as fast as the winds could carry her – but against anything of her size, she’d rip them a whole new one.
