    In legatura cu Canada Day, Kate si William au avut o zi superba in Ottawa de 1 Iulie (parada RCMP, vreme superba, multimea behaving absolutely great, nici-un bad event – cum a patit Sarkozy de pilda…). Kate imbracata ca un birthday cake (red & white plus maple leaf in palarie:) ) – cred ca a facut un serviciu imens monarhiei britanice. Poze:

    President Reagan’s Address to the Nation on Independence Day – 7/4/86

  4. IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.

    The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

    When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

  5. @9: Yes! Despre Declaratie si Obambi:

    Independence Day provides all Americans with an opportunity to celebrate the many freedoms that make our country both great and unique. Our Declaration of Independence was breathtaking in scope and written in precise, plain, unequivocal language. When read in townships across the Colonies, crowds listened in hushed silence and then broke out in applause when the reading was complete. Our Founding Fathers felt no need to dilute or cloak their intentions to form a government.
    As you celebrate the 4th, it might be appropriate to contrast the straightforward language of our founders and other great American leaders with the weasel words now emerging from Washington, and all too frequently, from President Obama, who prefers euphemism-laden, convoluted, pixilated flummery”


  6. „A Founding Fathers’ Independence Day Celebration” – by Terry Paulson

    Looking for some engaging guests for your 4th of July celebration? Imagine a few of our Founding Fathers dropping by!
    Host: “What a surprise and an honor to have you visit. Our economy is struggling, people can’t find jobs, and people are losing their homes. Some citizens are wondering if the American Dream is still alive. Do you have any thoughts for us in these tough times?”

    Benjamin Franklin: “Always liberty. In pursuit of liberty we pledged to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor. Liberty was more important to us than material prosperity. Prosperity is a fruit of freedom, not its root.”

    Thomas Jefferson: “So true. A wise and frugal government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government.”

    Host: “I hate to tell you folks, but the country you created is facing a huge debt. The Federal Reserve Bank has been printing money to stimulate the economy, and it’s not working. They’re considering raising the debt ceiling to 16 trillion dollars.”

    Jefferson: “If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless.”

    Host: Did you see this coming?

    Jefferson: “This is the tendency of all human governments. A departure from principle becomes a precedent for a second; that second for a third; and so on, till the bulk of society is reduced to mere automatons of misery, to have no sensibilities left but for sinning and suffering… And the driving force is public debt. Taxation follows that, and in its wake wretchedness and oppression.”

    Franklin: “Beware of little expenses; a small leak will sink a great ship.”

    Host: “They say that they can’t cut entitlement programs—the programs designed to take care of our poor citizens. They point to the ‘general welfare’ clause in the Constitution. Is that what you meant?”

    Jefferson: “Congress has not unlimited powers to provide for the general welfare, but only those specifically enumerated.”
