    This^^ During the VA Ratifying Convention Patrick Henry was the most frequent speaker against ratification of the new Constitution. Here, on 4 June, 1788, Mr. Henry first spoke to the delegates and reminded them of Virginia's sovereignty and her membership in a confederation of states. This speech is acted out in my movie "The Spirit of '76 - The Greatest Story Never Told". 4 June, 1788. The Virginia Assembly, Richmond Virginia Mr. HENRY. Mr. Chairman, the public mind, as well as my own, is extremely uneasy at the proposed change of government. Give me leave to form one of the number of those who wish to be thoroughly acquainted with the reasons of this perilous and uneasy situation, and why we are brought hither to decide on this great national question. I consider myself as the servant of the people of this commonwealth, as a sentinel over their rights, liberty, and happiness. I represent their feelings when I say that they are exceedingly uneasy at being brought from that state of full security, which they enjoyed, to the present delusive appearance of things. A year ago, the minds of our citizens were at perfect repose.Before the meeting of the late federal Convention at Philadelphia, a general peace and a universal tranquillity prevailed in this country; but, since that period, they are exceedingly uneasy and disquieted. When I wished for an appointment to this Convention, my mind was extremely agitated for the situation of public affairs. I conceived the republic to be in extreme danger. If our situation be thus uneasy, whence has arisen this fearful jeopardy? It arises from this fatal system; it arises from a proposal to change our government — a proposal that goes to the utter annihilation of the most solemn engagements of the states — a proposal of establishing nine states into a confederacy, to the eventual exclusion of four states. It goes to the annihilation of those solemn treaties we have formed with foreign nations.The present circumstances of France — the good offices rendered us by that kingdom — require our most faithful and most punctual adherence to our treaty with her. We are in alliance with the Spaniards, the Dutch, the Prussians; those treaties bound us as thirteen states confederated together. Yet here is a proposal to sever that confederacy. Is it possible that we shall abandon all our treaties and national engagements? — and for what? I expected to hear the reasons for an event so unexpected to my mind and many others. Was our civil polity, or public justice, endangered or sapped? Was the real existence of the country threatened, or was this preceded by a mournful progression of events? This proposal of altering our federal government is of a most alarming nature! Make the best of this new government — say it is composed by any thing but inspiration — you ought to be extremely cautious, watchful, jealous of your liberty; for, instead of securing your rights, you may lose them forever. If a wrong step be now made, the republic may be lost forever. If this new government will not come up to the expectation of the people, and they shall be disappointed, their liberty will be lost, and tyranny must and will arise. I repeat it again, and I beg gentlemen to consider, that a wrong step, made now, will plunge us into misery, and our republic will be lost. It will be necessary for this Convention to have a faithful historical detail of the facts that preceded the session of the federal Convention, and the reasons that actuated its members in proposing an entire alteration of government, and to demonstrate the dangers that awaited us. If they were of such awful magnitude as to warrant a proposal so extremely perilous as this, I must assert, that this Convention has an absolute right to a thorough discovery of every circumstance relative to this great event. And here I would make this inquiry of those worthy characters who composed a part of...

    Nah, there's also beverages (usually beer, but men are different after all), entertainment (when sex and food and beverage are not sufficient entertainment), and emotional well-being. The last one depends entirely on the person, but all people need some degree of feeling awesome/validation. If that still seems unlikely, consider that a great deal of the stuff being complained about isn't just sexual. It's the nagging, the belittling, the games, the intrusion, etc..

    I am a rebel to the core and I abhor violence. I have never carried a weapon. I can defend myself though and have many times. If real truth really exists then being in truth would be the only defense needed. I kinda think not many people know the truth and how powerful it is. Mainly, because we look to others to tell us what the truth is. Jesus is truth but even most Christians don't comprehend it especially they don't act like they comprehend it. I know that people do not know the truth because if they did there would be no famine, war and disease. In truth there is none of this.

    :eek: http://filmingcops.com/us-cops-kill-more-people-in-a-day-than-norwegian-cops-have-in-a-decade WASHINGTON DC With Americans being killed by police every day, one begins to wonder what the country would be like if cops were trained differently and stopped resorting to lethal force so quickly. One country we can look to is Norway. In Norway, cops have shot only one person to death. That was nearly a decade ago. Since then there have been no other fatal shootings by Norwegian police. Norwegian police are trained to actually de-escalate conflicts and engage with people respectfully, eye-to eye. Contrast that with the United States. In just the first eight months since January 1, 2015, over 600 Americans have been killed by police.

    When I was growing up I always heard "spare the rod and spoil the child" proverbs 13:24 from the bible. My mother beat the crap out of me all the time and I did rebel. I don't regret rebelling but I am sure somebody don't like it. Maybe for that reason spanking is good because I would not be who I am today if I had not rebelled. I did not spank my child and they did not rebel. I wanted my child to not rebel I think. Anyway I abhor all violence toward anyone I don't think it helps children but I don't know. Is being a rebel to be considered good or bad? Are rebels only formed by beatings? Maybe I should ask that question at my anarchist forum and my fake liberal democrat site to see what they say.

    I don't bathe them very often at all only if they are covered in mud or something. My present dogs haven't encountered any skunks thank God. I have had dogs that did and I poured tomato juice on them it helped but they had to sleep out side until I could not smell it any more. I have always allowed my dogs to sleep inside but if they stink from getting into something they may have to stay out until I can get to washing them or the stink wears off. A lot of people bathe their dogs often personally I don't think it all that good for dogs but people feed them commercial dog food and it makes them stink. I sometimes use cedar oil too and I sewed them(the dogs but not my H) some beds that stuffed with cedar shavings. My ole man is a very shaggy dude. I will tell him you gave him a rep. We don't get fleas either but ticks are a problem around my place for both people and animals. BTW I tried to +rep you as well but I have reped you too many times lately so maybe someone will catch me up.

    Therein lies the rub. Even studies that claim spanking works admit that it has to be applied consistently and rationally. There are plenty of studies "proving" correlation between spanking or not spanking to this, that, and the other thing-but all methods only work when applied in a way that works on specific kids. I've known kids that can take a whoopin' and keep on being brats who go on to be horrible adults. Shit happens. ETA: A totally anecdotal example...one of my uncles was a constant sass-talker and brat. My gramma would slap him so hard he fell on the ground, but that never changed him. He's still a smartmouth. And my favorite uncle. :D

    I think this product works best with people who already use natural products. They do recommend that when you bathe your animal that you do use a poison free flea and tick shampoo on them and/or some type of spray on repellent. Most people who use all natural products on their pet already use some type of flea and tick prevention soap or shampoo. I buy eucalyptus oil and mix abut 20 drops with 1/2 pint alcohol and spray my pets with it about once a week it makes them smell better too. I have been doing eucalyptus oil on them for years even when I used the poison. My big male does not like bathing so I need something to help me out. But feeding them a very clean diet keeps them from smelling bad too. we can always smell the store bought food on other people's pets. My dogs smell like new born puppies born to a healthy mother. I am really impressed that my dogs including my old man(he is very dog-like) do not get bitten by mosquitoes and no ticks attached on them. I have pulled 3 ticks off my body in the past 2 days so I am getting one for myself as well. I spend a lot of time out in the woods and I can't stand putting poison on my own body. The company will replace a defective device if sent back to them within 30 days of receiving. They do also provide an app that you can down load to your phone to check the field being emitted by the disk. To me this product is very innovative and in accordance with how I feel health in general. I just don't like pharmaceutical chemicals going in mine or my pets bodies.

    Cool man. Anyone who has such a solid understanding of Math, must have a decent head on their shoulders, even if they are a little nuts. Sometimes I think a few of the people that we regard as "nuts" just understand something that the rest of us don't.

    I have a lot of respect for the sciences. What kind of work do you hope to do with physics, in the future?

    Anyways, I'm nothing too special. Im a 25 year old self-employed businessman. I help businesses get leads and grow their consumer base, mostly with internet marketing strategies.

    To sum up my life, I'm just another evolved ape trying to find his place on this rock hurling through space. :-)

    Once again, sorry for the late response. I have a bad habit of forgetting to respond to wall posts. I think some people on facebook are starting to hate me for it, haha.

    So you are really dedicated to math, eh? I find it fascinating, and wish I paid more attention to it in school. Everything in nature seems to have some sort of mathematical pattern to it.

    So, What is it you do for a living? Are you a physicist or something along those lines?

In all history there is no war which was not hatched by the governments, the governments alone, independent of the interests of the people, to whom war is always pernicious even when successful.

The greater the state, the more wrong and cruel its patriotism, and the greater is the sum of suffering upon which its power is founded.

Truth, like gold, is to be obtained not by its growth, but by washing away from it all that is not gold.
