    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...

    :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.

    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

    in this thread TheGrinchWhoStoleDC gave me a -rep just for satirizing IP fascists in general as if I was attacking him personally. It seems they take it very personally now. They're on teh defensive! (his full -rep message is: "seriously, fuck off if you're going to call peopel fascists for having a different viewpoint. I've been nothing but polite, despite the fact that your view flat-out sickens me. show some respect.")
