    My sister-in-law snapped this. She says “You want to take another one just to be sure?” I says, “Nah..I’m sure it’s fine.” Well, it’s the thought that counts. Had my eyes closed on that one.

    Here’s another ignoramus at NRO trying to make a name for himself: The Declaration of Independence Is Not Important.

      Now you have some idea of how I felt after reading that WWI article by Ari Davis. Although I will admit, this guy takes even greater interpretive and historical liberties. A couple of things stand out. 1) It’s as if he stopped reading the Declaration after the first paragraph. 2) From the way he frames events, one could be excused for thinking that it was only after the July 2 agreement was signed that the Declaration was written. In fact, Congress had formed a committee to write such a Declaration during the first half of June and the Draft was submitted to Congress during the last week of June.

      The Declaration can rightly be seen as a something of a Bill of Particulars which the United Colonies presented to the world. It was like a prosecutorial document against the King and Britain.

      The problem one encounters with writers such as Strauss is they, too often, appear to be stretching credibility in order to find something “New” in old things. This is the way of academia and the mass media, which includes the News Media as well as Entertainment Media. They take us on such flights of fancy as to confuse even the most level headed person.

      I will go off on a tangent here and use the example of homosexual marriage to make my point. The whole movement as presented to the public has been based on a lie and uses flights of fancy and the credulity of the public which has lost touch with reality due to being propagandized by word smiths who do their best to confuse us.

      Strauss may be writing for a good cause, but I believe he does history, himself and the rest of us a disservice with this piece.

      As I have often mentioned, there really is very little which is original in public life or thought. In the insane pursuit of “originality” too many so-called intelligent people formulate all sorts of inanities and falsehoods.

      One of the jobs of conservatives is to remind people that there really isn’t anything new under the sun, as regards human relations, and to repeat the good old truths which humanity is wont to forget almost as quickly as they are taught.

        Well, Mr. Kung, at least I didn’t have to trudge through another Lord Blowhard article. I know that Conrad Black is all the rage but I never cared for the kind of crappy article he would tend to post this time of year concerning our Day of Independence. I see someone else has picked up the baton. God forbid we honor this day with thoughtful words. You see how deep the rot is.

        Perhaps I understand the general mindset. There are those for whom nothing matters unless, A) It is written in a law or B) It has a price tag. This is truly the reduced man produced by secularism.

        It’s sometimes been pointed out to me the money that could be made off of this website. And for-profit does not automatically taint a cause any more (especially) than the now near meaningless “non-profit” moniker does. But there are things larger than either money or legalisms. But I’m amazed again (unless I’m misreading this) how deeply the secular mindset goes. It just can’t seem to occur to people that the Constitution, for example, is an expression of a pre-existing moral, political, intellectual, legal, religious, and social idea.

        Yes, the details of the Constitution are important. And, yes, the devil is always in the details. But only a (I’m trying to keep my language toned down here) friggin’ idiot would discount the deep and purposeful meaning of the Declaration of Independence. This document declared from the get-go that we weren’t going to be a mob (there were always incidents, of course), which would later be the hallmark of the French Revolution. We were making a statement that we were justified in doing what we were doing, and we spelled it out.

        One can agree or disagree with Jefferson’s grounding of the idea of self-government. But he did lay out a clear rationale for why a Colony was justified in becoming a Country. He laid out and expressed an idea absolutely foreign to the secular/pedantic mind, and that is that our rights predate government (“they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights…”).

        Only a fucktard (okay, I slipped) could miss this major point. This was a major advancement in human (and humane) thinking.

          One should not forget that the Declaration is, to my knowledge, the first major political/legal document based on Natural Law.

          The idea that there is a higher law than that which some sovereign or mob, willy-nilly, decides drives the secular types bananas. It even drove them crazy back then. Think Bentham.

          Well, I understand Black has something of a grudge against our legal system, which I think may be well founded. Once the government decides to come after an individual, that person is pretty well toast. The cost of defending oneself is ruinous and the bureaucrats at the Dept. of Justice have a never ending stream of cash with which to beat one.

          There are other iniquities in our judicial system, but in the spirit of Independence Day, I will forgo mentioning them now.

          • Brad Nelson Brad Nelson says:

            Anyone who makes grievance central to their dogma is on the wrong side of the political spectrum. And if Lord Blowhard wishes to write about the injustices committed against him, he should do so. Somehow I doubt they trace all the way back to the founding of this country.

    I am not sure how you can post a photo here but I will send one to you Brad and maybe you can.

    Happy Independence Day America

    • Brad Nelson Brad Nelson says:

      That will work fine, Pat. Others can use free online storage services and link us to that. Whatever works.

      And I see you’ve upped the ante by including the Declaration of Independence. By the time we’re through I’m sure we’ll have Mr. Kung with the Liberty Bell on his knee, an eagle perched on his shoulder, all while sitting on a scale model of Mount Vernon.

      • Kung Fu Zu Kung Fu Zu says:

        How did you know that? I was also going to include life-sized statues of Washington, Franklin, Jefferson and Adams. Yes I know Washington didn’t have anything to do with the Declaration, but he was the “indispensable man” of the Revolution and Father of Our Country and the Greatest Man Who Ever Lived.

    What are the limits of a malignant republic’s degradation when it surrenders its first principles with hardly a whimper? Do not be unaware: a regime that has the power to equalize both public and private possesses tyrannical power. In the near future, we shall find out intimately just what such power entails. It is a power that no free man can flourish beneath — a concentrated coercive power that our Founders would never have sanctioned. They understood well the conceit and presumption of the human heart and that the first fruits of iron benevolence inevitably turn towards servitude.

    Today, while you are enjoying the pleasure of God’s bounty amidst family and friends, please reflect, even in passing, what we have lost and what yet remains of a once great republic.
