Have we reached the point where we can't fix the USA?

Though I now know the US Constitution has been trounced many times in the past, I'll bet my last dollar it has never seen the soles of more shoes and boots than in the past six years.

I often have a chuckle when I hear people speak of their "Founding Fathers" as if they were "Gods" instead of mortal men trying to find a way out of the East Coast Chaos and make a union of all these different peoples.

A Herculean undertaking at very least, and at best, impossible. First, the Framers of the Constitution themselves had so many differences that one wonders how they managed to come up with anything other than a fist fight. None the less, they persevered and prevailed.

But even at the "launching" of this instrument, there wasn't a smile in the house because everyone of these men well knew it was a sieve with holes punched in it by each and every one of them to accommodate their own wishes, hopes, and desires, as well as family and friends. They could only hope wiser men would prevail as America grew.

This threadbare document has been used countless times by rogues and desperate criminals such as those now occupying the offices of power in the United States illegally. Yet, the words still ring out;

"We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."

Now they are only words. Or as George disrespectfully put it, "a Goddamned piece of Paper!" Hardly the words you'd expect to hear from the "president" of the United States, then disrespected once again by Antonin Scalia.

It's comparable to the Statue of Liberty, which initially the US didn't much care to have. They have been relegated to the closet of no longer needed items, not unlike an old vacuum or bowling ball.

The rogue despotic regime of George Bush has decided it needn't follow any more rules unless it makes them, and then only to the point where their "laws" serve them. Most would refer to this state of being as "chaos."

What happened to promoting the general welfare of the people of America? That includes a home to live in, a bed to sleep in, food to eat, a good education, and hope to share in the prosperity we once had.

What happened to the blessings of liberty for all? Surveillance cameras everywhere, including street corners, stoplights, police cars, bathrooms and such.

I don't know presently if there's someone watching a screen somewhere at the Secret Service to see what I'm writing. I can't use my telephone without the same concern.

There are trillions of documents stored in secret vaults and cabinets with data on all of us. This sounds more like the American version of the Former Soviet Union to me. In fact, exactly like it.

These frightened little fat rich men who well know they stole the government, and intend to keep it, sitting behind locked doors and armed guards.

Trials like that of Zacaria Moussaoui and many other "tribunals," where the prosecution has clearly violated the rules of behavior of a lawyer, and should be disbarred for coaching the jury. This among many other forms of legal malfeasance.

It is not how much you hate the defendant, it is supposed to be your undying respect for the rule of law that counts.

Mr. Bohne is a clockmaker and activist. He HATES the US Government, and without stretching the truth (reality) will do anything to dig up dirt on any of these bastards, as long as it's REAL dirt. "the first man to raise his fists, is the first (more...)
