Again let me state I am not trying to ruffle feathers - I just appreciate when people speak thier mind - And When I Happen To Agree - I spread it.   This article speak VOLUMES aobut mankind and what we are allowing our country to become....and somewhat ties into the blogs we’ve had the last few days about our society full of spoiled children...

As a note here - re: religion, I do beleive our nation was founded on a basis of such, and should remain so - the whole point is we have the freedom to believe and practice as we see fit - Regardless of what form your “God” takes on - it is the reality of a higher power, the acceptance that there is MORE than “us“. - anyhow - love ya all - here’s some FOOD FOR THOUGHT!! happy  

 Summary of eRumor
This email is a strong statement of carrying responsibility for one’s own life and attributed to Representative Mitchell Kay of the George state legislature.  

 The Truth
How Representative Kaye’s name got attached to this, nobody knows, but it was actually written by Libertarian writer and former U.S. Senate candidate Lewis Napper.

 NEW PREAMBLE TO THE CONSTITUTION  

This is probably the best e-mail I’ve seen in a long, long time. The following has been attributed to State Representative Mitchell Kaye from GA. This guy should run for President one day...  

  

‘We the sensible people of the United States, in an attempt to help everyone get along, restore some semblance of justice, avoid more riots, keep our nation safe, promote positive behavior, and secure the blessings of debt-free liberty to ourselves and our great-great-great-grandchildren, hereby try one more time to ordain and establish some common sense guidelines for the terminally whiny, guilt ridden, delusional. We hold these truths to be self evident: that a whole lot of people are confused by the Bill of Rights and are so dim they require a Bill of NON-Rights.’  

ARTICLE I:  

You do not have the right to a new car, big screen TV, or any other form of wealth. More power to you if you can legally acquire them, but no one is guaranteeing anything.  

ARTICLE II:  

You do not have the right to never be offended. This country is based on freedom, and that means freedom for everyone—not just you! You may leave the room, turn the channel, express a different opinion, etc.; but the world is full of idiots, and probably always will be.  

ARTICLE III:  

You do not have the right to be free from harm. If you stick a screwdriver in your eye, learn to be more careful; do not expect the tool manufacturer to make you and all your relatives independently wealthy.  

ARTICLE IV:  

You do not have the right to free food and housing. Americans are the most charitable people to be found, and will gladly help anyone in need, but we are quickly growing weary of subsidizing generation after generation of professional couch potatoes who achieve nothing more than the creation of another generation of professional couch potatoes.  

ARTICLE V:  

You do not have the right to free health care. That would be nice, but from the looks of public housing, we‘re just not interested in public health care.  

ARTICLE VI:  

You do not have the right to physically harm other people. If you kidnap, rape, intentionally maim, or kill someone, don’t be surprised if the rest of us want to see you fry in the electric chair.  

ARTICLE VII:  

You do not have the right to the possessions of others. If you rob, cheat, or coerce away the goods or services of other citizens, don’t be surprised if the rest of us get together and lock you away in a place where you still won’t have the right to a big screen color TV or a life of leisure.  

ARTICLE VIII:  

You do not have the right to a job. All of us sure want you to have a job, and will gladly help you along in hard times, but we expect you to take advantage of the opportunities of education and vocational training laid before you to make yourself useful.    Amen and Amen  

ARTICLE IX:  

You do not have the right to happiness. Being an American means that you have the right to PURSUE happiness, which by the way, is a lot easier if you are unencumbered by an over abundance of idiotic laws created by those of you who were confused by the Bill of Rights.  

ARTICLE X:  

This is an English speaking country.  We don’t care where you are from, English  is our language. Learn it or go back to wherever you came from!  

Lastly  

ARTICLE XI:  

You do not have the right to change our country’s history or heritage. This country was founded on the belief in one true God. And yet, you are given the freedom to believe in any religion, any faith, or no faith at all; with no fear of persecution.The phrase IN GOD WE TRUST is part of our heritage and history, and if you are uncomfortable with it, TOUGH!

      With in the sects I love  the fact that there are multiple languages and while I am crappy at learning them myself, have tried french, spanish & german,it seems that pigion english (in Hawaii) was all I could manage to wrap my little brain around!  I just believe that there has to be a base language for a nation to function semi smoothly.

      the slave labor in our country (amoung other things) disgust me (& THERE ARE MANY) however, I have watched the fat a—“couch pototoes” in my community that milk the welfare systems - and THERE are jobs.  Not the ones they want, not the pay that is needed (I understand that) BUT there are jobs - there are.  No, I doubt I could walk straight back into full time & the $40k I left 9 years ago...but if I HAD to - I would flip burgers at McD’s......

      PS  as stated - LOVE to hear opinions  XO

      I’m not sure about specific immigration/citizenship laws; but there should be no question that anyone wanting to become a citizen should have to at least learn the common language. That’s saying, “If you don’t try to learn our language, you can’t come IN!“. Anyone who truly wants to belong to our great country (obviously many want to, but want to take the advantages without the responsibilities) would do WHATEVER IT TAKES in order to do so.
      Then we have our children who were born here. Confusion about the Bill of Rights, about ALL civics is the fault of every parent, every school board member, every administrator and every teacher. Those who DO try to teach what’s important can’t be held responsible if a child refuses to learn. Still, we need to keep on trying. It’s also really true that most of what we learn is “caught” by someone’s EXAMPLE, NOT taught.
      As far as home schooling is concerned, there is a call to a large Christian population to remove their children from public schools.
      I know this is long, but one more thing, please estatic...I have also thought for a long time that we need to return to apprenticeship for teenagers.
