As the British discovered trying the quell the American rebellion, it’s difficult to fight the natives on their own territory, even when many of them are on your side. The US faced the same situation in Vietnam, its difficulty magnified because Americans were of a different racial stock than those they subjugated.
Also unlike the British, the Americans were perceived—even by their ostensible allies—as another in a long line of imperial conquerors that stretched back to Chinese domination during the first millennium. Belying US rhetoric and propaganda, industrial warfare and atrocities destroyed South Vietnam and killed or alienated many of the South Vietnamese whose freedom we were supposedly defending.
To defeat a local population when much of it wages guerrilla war or covertly supports those who do, the invading power has to kill most and terrorize the rest.
The University of North Carolina’s championship-winning men’s basketball team won’t make the customary visit to the White House, a team spokesman said Saturday.
The Tar Heels attributed the decision to scheduling difficulties rather than political animus for President Trump. But the announcement came on the same day that Trump rescinded Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry’s invitation to the White House in response to the NBA star’s reported hesitance to make the trip.
UNC players were ‘fine with going,” according to the team, but coach Roy Williams was non-committal when the topic was raised in April. “[T]he office of the presidency of the United States is the most fantastic place you can be,” Williams said. “But let me think on it.”
If you accept the above premise, consider this by extension:
A nation in debt is composed of enslaved people.
Sentient beings would then ask themselves to whom they are enslaved. Their masters are the political elite who enslaved them with debt. And that was always their goal.
A great question is posed in this video: What are the benefits of multiculturalism?
The purpose of multiculturalism is to divide and conquer. Islam means submission. Submission only means one thing: dying on your knees.
I’m a bottle blonde/jet black haired blue eyed (more red-eyed these days) Trump voting, Christian, Conservative North Carolina native born and raised and proud American.
I’m pro life from the minute of conception to the minute they are born. So NO I do not believe in abortions.
I absolutely believe we need closed borders for now to regain some sort of control in this chaotic country we call home.
I believe in traditional marriage and separate bathrooms and I whole heartedly agree that what happens behind those closed doors is private as long as it stays behind the stall so no I do not need to see your business, know which way you hang or identify yourself…I certainly do not care as long as you don’t push your ideology on me nor should you try to force me to accept your specific gender characterization outside of being a man or woman..THAT IS ALL SHE WROTE ON THAT SUBJECT.
The political elite know that an unconstitutional law has not validity. But if the people do not know this or do not care, they will abuse the law, the people and what is left of our freedom.
Following the decision of the highest court of the Tennessee in Pope v. Phifer, 3 Heiskell 691, and other cases, this Court holds that the Board of Commissioners of Shelby County, organized under the Act of March 9, 1867, had no lawful existence; that it was an unauthorized and illegal body; that its members were usurpers of the functions and powers of the justices of peace of the county; that their action in holding a county court was void, and that their acts in subscribing to the stock of the Mississippi River Railroad Company and issuing bonds in payment therefor were void.
While acts of a de facto incumbent of an office lawfully created by law and existing are often held to be binding from reasons of public policy, the acts of a person assuming to fill and perform the duties of an office which does not exist de jure can have no validity whatever in law.
An unconstitutional act is not a law; it confers no rights; it imposes no duties; it affords no protection; it creates no office; it is in legal contemplation as inoperative as though it had never been passed.
Wage slave or entitled serf? These are not the choices a free country would be offering. If we are not a free country, who is responsible? We have only to look to the masters for the answer.
The government seizes more private property through asset forfeiture than criminals steal. One entity has impunity and the other one can only marvel at the master “thieves” abilities.
History is not always written by the winners.
I, _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.
United States Army Oath of Enlistment
The Vietnam Memorial lists over 58,000 dead. Many more sustained serious, life-altering wounds, physical and psychological. If only we had taken off the kid gloves, goes the refrain, we wouldn’t have lost in Vietnam. We didn’t bring to bear the full weight of American firepower, and our “warriors” were hampered by senseless, politically driven rules of engagement.
In one sense the refrain is true. The US didn’t carpet bomb North and South Vietnam with nuclear weapons. That kid glove stayed on. Other than that, the assertion is complete bunk.

Imagine if our educational system taught our children instead of indoctrinating them. This is Thomas Jefferson’s position on manners:
It is difficult to determine on the standard by which the manners of a nation may be tried, whether catholic, or particular. It is more difficult for a native to bring to that standard the manners of his own nation, familiarized to him by habit. There must doubtless be an unhappy influence on the manners of our people produced by the existence of slavery among us. The whole commerce between master and slave is a perpetual exercise of the most boisterous passions, the most unremitting despotism on the one part, and degrading submissions on the other. Our children see this, and learn to imitate it; for man is an imitative animal. This quality is the germ of all education in him. From his cradle to his grave he is learning to do what he sees others do. If a parent could find no motive either in his philanthropy or his self-love, for restraining the intemperance of passion towards his slave, it should always be a sufficient one that his child is present. But generally it is not sufficient. The parent storms, the child looks on, catches the lineaments of wrath, puts on the same airs in the circle of smaller slaves, gives a loose to his worst of passions, and thus nursed, educated, and daily exercised in tyranny, cannot but be stamped by it with odious peculiarities. The man must be a prodigy who can retain his manners and morals undepraved by such circumstances. And with what execration should the statesman be loaded, who permitting one half the citizens thus to trample on the rights of the other, transforms those into despots, and these into enemies, destroys the morals of the one part, and the amor patriae of the other. For if a slave can have a country in this world, it must be any other in preference to that in which he is born to live and labour for another: in which he must lock up the faculties of his nature, contribute as far as depends on his individual endeavours to the evanishment of the human race, or entail his own miserable condition on the endless generations proceeding from him. With the morals of the people, their industry also is destroyed. For in a warm climate, no man will labour for himself who can make another labour for him. This is so true, that of the proprietors of slaves a very small proportion indeed are ever seen to labour. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are of the gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with his wrath? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just: that his justice cannot sleep for ever: that considering numbers, nature and natural means only, a revolution of the wheel of fortune, an exchange of situation, is among possible events: that it may become probable by supernatural interference! The Almighty has no attribute which can take side with us in such a contest. — But it is impossible to be temperate and to pursue this subject through the various considerations of policy, of morals, of history natural and civil. We must be contented to hope they will force their way into every one’s mind. I think a change already perceptible, since the origin of the present revolution. The spirit of the master is abating, that of the slave rising from the dust, his condition mollifying, the way I hope preparing, under the auspices of heaven, for a total emancipation, and that this is disposed, in the order of events, to be with the consent of the masters, rather than by their extirpation.
This does not fit the media’s narrative of our greatest President concerning slavery. The terms of racist and rapist are the current labels used to diminish President Jefferson. The retraction from Nature concerning their original story stating the he fathered illegitimate children with Sally Hemmings does not fit their narrative. His effort to abolish slavery also does not fit their narrative.
Do you understand President Jefferson’s warning:
“Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just”
In a moral country with a firm reliance on Divine Providence, people would be held accountable for slander.
From what I have read, I would have to side with the people. From what I see on the video, St. Louis has a problem with their police.
