The Constitution and Old Ironsides


It was altogether fitting that among the tea party protests mounted across the country yesterday, one was held at Boston. - Fitting not just because that was the location of the first one many years ago, but also because a United States warship was built there in 1797, a 44-gun frigate christened the US CONSTITUTION, one of the first six warships provided by the Congress. Under full sail, she was a mighty fighting ship to behold.

The CONSTITUTION was well built, well manned and well skippered, such that she spent more time at sea and won more victories than any other US warship of its time. Yet, she came through her many battles with so little damage to her hull that she was nicknamed, "Old Ironsides."

In 1830, the Navy decided to demolish the CONSTITUTION. But, when the American people learned of the Navy plans, they were outraged. And Oliver Wendell Holmes on September 16, 1830 published his poem, "Old Ironsides."

"Ay, tear her tattered ensign down!" he wrote.
"Long has it waved on high,
And many an eye has danced to see
That banner in the sky;"

* * * *
"Her deck, once red with heroes' blood,"

* * * * "

In the context of current counter-piracy operations involving the US Navy, it is significant that the CONSTITUTION was Commodore Preble's flagship in the war with Tripoli; and one of her captains was William Bainbridge, whose name is carried by the US destroyer that responded to the capture of the American commercial cargo ship, MAERSK ALABAMA in April of 2009.

Now, just as it was important to preserve the grand old warship CONSTITUTION in 1830, it is extremely important today that we revoke the unauthorized changes made to our sacred governing Constitution by the Franklin Roosevelt, Lyndon Johnson, George Bush and Barack Obama administrations.

Following are examples of the damaging blows suffered by the Constitution.

Massive contorted use of the commerce clause by FDR.
Annulment of property rights in 2005 by the New London, Connecticut city government.
Mr Obama violating separation of powers by authorizing funding of embrionic stem cell research, and establishing a 250,000-member uniformed national security force.
Mr Bush and Mr Obama nationalizing financial and auto industries.
Mr Obama and Congress requiring the states to accept "stimulus" payments from the federal government.
The Obama executive branch attacking a private citizen, Rush Limbaugh for his expression of political views.
The 111th Congress in early 2009 crafting punitive legislation with a bill of attainder aimed at individual corporate executive officers.
Mr Obama issuing to police chiefs and sheriffs nationwide a Department of Homeland Security intelligence report labelling as potential terrorists returning combat veterans, anti-abortionists and anti-illegal aliens.
Mr Obama asserting his post-national, global views, at the expense of United States sovereignty.

Our precious Constitution: "Tear her tattered ensign [Old Glory] down?" NEVER!!

Rather, let us patch the gaping holes and remove the destabilizing superstructure erected by traitors and greedy politicians.

They are seed eaters and cavity nesters. As such, they depend on trees with fairly large diameters, generally Eucalyptus. Populations in southeastern Australia are threatened by reduction in forest cover and other habitat alterations. Of the black cockatoos, the red-tailed black is the most adaptable to aviculture, although black cockatoos are much rarer and much more expensive outside Australia.

Pairs of the subspecies samueli in the Wheatbelt region of Western Australia may produce two broods,[35] while those of South-eastern subspecies only produce one.[49] Nesting takes place in large vertical tree hollows of tall trees. Isolated trees are generally chosen, so birds can fly to and from them relatively unhindered. The same tree may be used for many years. Hollows can be 1 to 2 metres (3–7 ft) deep and 0.25–0.5 metres (10–20 in) wide, with a base of woodchips. A clutch consists of 1 to 2 white, lustreless eggs, although the second chick is in most cases neglected and perishes in infancy

Other experts raised serious concerns with the management plan; the famed psittacine biologist Joseph Forshaw opposed it on several grounds. He expressed concerns that, given the birds' long lifespan, recruitment problems may be masked for many years, by which time recovery of the cockatoo population may be impossible. He also feared that increasing supply would lower prices and hence lower profitability for those involved.

Following the failed rebellion of his elder brothers between 1173 and 1174, however, John became Henry's favourite child.

The power invested in local authorities is administered by elected councillors, of which there are currently 1,222[118] and are each paid a part-time salary. Elections are conducted by single transferable vote in multi-member wards that elect either three or four councillors. Each council elects a Provost, or Convenor, to chair meetings of the council and to act as a figurehead for the area. Councillors are subject to a code of conduct enforced by the Standards Commission for Scotland.[119] The representative association of Scotland's local authorities is the Convention of Scottish Local Authorities (COSLA).

Successive Vietnamese royal dynasties flourished as the nation expanded geographically and politically into Southeast Asia, until the Indochina Peninsula was colonized by the French in the mid-19th century. The First Indochina War eventually led to the expulsion of the French in 1954, leaving Vietnam divided politically into two countries. Fighting between the two sides continued, with heavy foreign intervention, during the Vietnam War, which ended with a North Vietnamese victory in 1975.

The bronze weapons, tools, and drums of Dong Son sites show a Southeast Asian influence that indicates an indigenous origin for the bronze-casting technology.
