Governmentally Imposed Shutdown of Commerce and Freedoms of Travel and Assembly for Public-Safety Protection Against the CoVid-d19 Corona Virus:

Federal funding as compensation for private-property costs imposed by governmentally-imposed shutdowns of otherwise lawful and constitutionally protected commerce, freedom to work, freedom to travel and freedom of assembly is NOT even remotely a "bailout."  Rather, it's compensation by the federal government for economic damages imposed upon private rights (of which private property is a species) to protect public safety and national security.  It's akin to the Fifth Amendment constitutional prohibition against the "taking" of private property (which includes prohibition of income from otherwise lawful and constitutionally protected rights to work) for public "use" because prohibition of otherwise lawful and constitutionally protected commerce, freedom to work, freedom to travel and freedom of assembly is the virtual equivalent of confiscation of same for the public "use" of protecting public safety and national security.

Fourth of July Thanks.

When Freedom's at Peace on a Fourth of July

then pure Celebration should blanket our skies.
But now while our soldiers are risking their lives,

and many so bravely for freedom have died,
we owe it to them on this Fourth of July
to show them our thanks for their noblest of lives.

So little they ask for so much that they give
so we may in freedom continue to live,

that more than just "thank you" to them we must give.

The "more" they would want is not "something" to give:

It's what's given best by our lives when we live

in ways to be worthy of all they did give.

The "everyman" Private named "Ryan" perceived

this insight returning to Normandy's beach 

by posing a question whose asking does teach

the answer to what do we owe the deceased--

Asked Ryan, "Please tell me the life I did weave

has honored the gift that from them I received."

Memorial Day -- Freedom's Narrative

PoliticalXray.Com/Memorial_Day.htm

We pause for this Memorial Day 
to join in this refrain 
to those who gave their all to us 
so freedom we'd retain.  

For darkness they confronted 
in preserving freedom's light, 
we owe them more than we can pay 
for giving more than life.  

But lives they gave endure today 
in hearts and souls and minds 
of we who drink from freedom's cup 
the fruits of freedom's vine.  

--Jim Wrenn, Editor 

 

 

IN MEMORY of First Lieutenant Donaldson Preston Tillar, III. A West Point graduate and combat helicopter pilot, Donald died in the Persian Gulf War on one of many, extra combat missions he voluntarily performed. That his heroism enabled others to return safely comforts those of us who knew, loved and admired him. He was a native of Emporia, Virginia. He was survived by his father, Col. Donald P. Tillar, II, (a West Point graduate and Vietnam veteran, who heads Miller School in Charlottesville), his mother, Hazel Tillar, and his two sisters, Cathy and Leilani.
(As written shortly after his death in the Spring of 1991.)

Advocates of Liberty Mourn Andrew Breitbart as Exceptional American Advocate of American Exceptionalism Over Obama's American Acceptionalism.

By Jim Wrenn, Editor, PoliSat.Com , PoliticalXray.Com . 
March 2, 2012--

 

            In the wake of the death Andrew Breitbart, American advocates of liberty mournfully honor him as an exceptional American advocate of American Exceptionalism over Obama's American Acceptionalism.  Andrew Breitbart well understood an anthropological truth reputed to have first been expressed by Bill Wichterman, Policy Advisor to the former Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist:  "Politics is downstream from culture."  Bill Whittle also not only well understood such truth but also created an excellent video explaining it.  Breitbart dedicated his life to attempting to give how-to lessons (for affecting culture) to those of us who not only still understand how American Exceptionalism has advanced  human civilization in general and principles of liberty in particular but who also understand how Obama's "American Acceptionalism" poses an intellectually existential threat to American Exceptionalism.

          I never had the good fortune of meeting Andrew Breitbart, but as did most of us who advocate limited government at home and unapologetic American advocacy and activism abroad, I quickly recognized his leadership potential as well as his knowledge and abilities for communicating such principles to generations far younger than I.  Although the legacy he leaves serves as a form of immortality for his ideas, his uniquely energetic and unapologetic support for, and defense of, such principles will be sorely missed.  That must be a comfort (though surely not enough) for his surviving wife and children, to all of whom we all express our most profound sympathies.

          But Andrew Breitbart would not have wanted (click here to continue)
