FROM THE STANDS
“Thank you for your editorial in social studies education. I’m not an old lady, so I really don’t know what they teach in schools today. I am shocked by my grandchildren, the ignorance about certain things, I thought that all the students have learned. I’m afraid the vote is done by a lot of people, the popularity and personality and not by policy. I doubt if you ask: ‘is the good of America.'” – Jean Farrell, Fleming Island, Florida.
“For my whole life, presidents have been declaring national emergencies, and paying for it with funds that were allocated elsewhere. I don’t see how someone can suddenly find that these wall-building action suddenly more constitutional than any of the previous measures. To build our tax dollars have gone, the boundary walls in a number of other countries and no one said anything. Now someone has the courage to try to protect the citizens that you were elected to serve, and everyone gets all shocked and upset and cries foul. I see a problem and it starts and ends with time limits, with some construction project!” – Brian J. Steiner, Fargo, N. D.[Ed. Note: I’m not sure how old you are, Mr Steiner, but only twice that I’m aware of that, have an American President re-assigned to congressionally appropriated dollars on domestic projects. Once 9/11 and the other was for the programming of health insurance in the face of the 2009 swine flu outbreak was. In this case, the President asked repeatedly to Fund the Congress in his project, even if both chambers were under his party’s control, and the Congress rejected it and repeated it. The will of the Congress is not ambiguous in any way. It is almost 60 not adopted declarations in total since the law, aimed at reining in presidential encroach on the subject in 1975. The vast majority relate to things such as foreign sanctions, arms supplies, etc. whatever you think can finish this bit of the Imperial, it is at least different than the ones that came before.]
“I have to answer several of the sample citizenship tests, and all 20 questions answered correctly. For a test, I 19 answered correctly. Above average Yes, but what concerns me the most is the one question that I was wrong. The question was Why the colonists fight the British?’ Is one of the correct answers, the British army did not really ‘because in their homes?’ If that was the case, perhaps we would have asked only to leave you! Not ‘taxation without representation’ play a role? Just to say.” – Paul K. Schnier, Shoreham, NY[Ed. Note: It was a very big deal, in fact, Mr. Schnier. I’ll give you the third Amendment: “No soldier shall, quartered, in time of peace are prescribed in any house without the consent of the owner, nor in time of war, but in a way by the law.” The quartering of British soldiers was a great trouble to the colonists. Imagine that you and your family, your home on their farm in Shoreham and British troops marching from Long Island suddenly present themselves at your door. You and your family are forced from their beds and watch helplessly as your house is trashed and the redcoats eat and drink, until all their branches. In the morning, after you Breakfast, stick with a heart on March. You might not be paid back by the country’s main man, maybe you have. You will never forget the degree, in the French and Indian war and the costs, disruptions and frictions, our own revolution created and gave birth to.]
