According to Webster: “for·bid·den,” (in context) n. To deny; prohibit.
While preparing a bagel with cream cheese and a sweeping slather of apricot jam for my repast this morning, it occurred to me that with this being Saturday I’d have to make a trip to the bank before one o’clock or endure the weekend without cash.
Was my moment of panic justified? Of course not, ..albeit it was enlightening as to just how many insignificant thoughts can enter and vacate the human mind in 60 seconds.
Question: How devastating would actually be if I didn’t get to the bank and cash a check?
What would I do without, ..what would I be denied?
At 72 years of age, with all the things I have to worry about in my life, not one of my problems comes close to comparing to what the “collective residence” of this Nation have to worry about with the undaunted and audacious assault that Barack Obama has launched against our Constitution.
The Constitution is not a document that is subject to change at the whim of any given individual or administration, ..nor is it a ticket…
..to a carnival ride.
Without the “Declaration of Independence,” as well as the Constitution, (as written) by our founding fathers,..
Barack Obama, and every black man, woman and child in America would still be picking cotton.
The preamble of the Declaration of Independence (in part) reads; …
Which of course at the time did not include or apply to folks of color, because people of color were not considered to be people, citizens, or equal.
Only by the decency of God-fearing men and women, (not politicians), were people of color adjoined to the body of this nation.
Politics had nothing to do with amending the Constitution to include people of color, that was fought for and provided by abolitionists, fair-minded God-fearing compassionate white men and women who viewed people from their hearts.
The Constitution of the United States is the supreme law of the United States of America. The Constitution, originally comprising seven articles, delineates the national frame of government. Its first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the (bicameral) …
According to Webster: “bi·cam·er·al,” adj. Composed of or based on two legislative chambers or branches.
Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts.
Articles Four, Five and Six…
Entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government.
Establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it.
Since the Constitution was put into effect in 1789, it has been amended twenty-seven times.
The first ten amendments are known collectively as the Bill of Rights.
At seven articles and twenty-seven amendments, it is the shortest written constitution in force.
The Constitution is interpreted, supplemented, and implemented by a large body of constitutional law.
The U.S. Constitution was the first constitution of its kind and has influenced the constitutions of other nations.
Preamble: Authority and purpose…
The Preamble sets out the origin, scope and purpose of the Constitution. Its origin and authority is in “We, the people of the United States”.
This echoes the Declaration of Independence. “One people” dissolved their connection with another, …
..again, please do not mistake the identifier of “One People” in that sentence to include or apply to black people, because again, black people were not considered people, citizens or equal in any venue at the time.
..and assumed among the powers of the earth, a sovereign nation-state. The scope of the Constitution is twofold. First, “to form a more perfect Union” than had previously existed in the “perpetual Union” of the Articles of Confederation.
Second, to “secure the blessings of liberty”, which were to be enjoyed by not only the first generation, but for all who came after, “our posterity”.
According to Webster:“pos·ter·i·ty,” n. Future generations.
This is an itemized social contract of democratic philosophy. It details how the more perfect union was to be carried out between the national government and the people.
The people are to be provided (a) justice, (b) civil peace, (c) common defense, (d) those things of a general welfare that they could not provide themselves, and (e) freedom.
A government of “liberty and union, now and forever”, unfolds when we, “We the People” begin and establish this Constitution. (Source Wikipedia).
In short, without the dreaded and (maligned) white man, Barack Hussein Obama would be herding goats in Kenya, South Africa today instead of enjoying the benefits and comforts of the U.S. Constitution.
According to Webster: “ma·ligned,” (in context) A harmful and untrue statements about someone or something.
“That’s just how white folks will do you. It wasn’t merely the cruelty involved; I was learning that black people could be mean and then some. It was a particular brand of arrogance, an obtuseness in otherwise sane people that brought forth our bitter laughter.
It was as if whites didn’t know they were being cruel in the first place. Or at least thought you deserved of their scorn.”

Question: What has Barack Obama done or provided for the United States of America that has benefited this nation?
He sure as hell hasn’t benefited the private sector in respect to creating opportunities for (entrepreneurial) folks, or for the folks that depend on their employment from “entrepreneurial” folks.
Although government access, and/or, (spying) on American citizens via their email and phone conversations is definitely a violation of the Constitution – however, the lack of securing America’s borders by “deliberately” choosing (not) to enforce America’s federal immigration laws is a hundred times more dangerous to the average American citizen than some creep at the NSA reading their email.
The above is an un-retouched photograph of Barack Obama during his enrollment at Columbia University.
A personal request; If you have an IQ above “sixty” and an imagination, please combine the two to form a hypothesis as to how much effort (you believe) the fellow pictured above applied to his classroom assignments?
A parting thought to ponder…
An excerpt, and/or, quote from Barack Obama’s book; “The Audacity of Hope.”
“For half of the world’s population, roughly three billion people around the world living on less than two dollars a day, an election is at best a means, not an end; …
..a starting point, ..not deliverance. These people are looking less for an “electocracy” …
My apologies to those of you who will undoubtedly write and tell me that the word; “electocracy” ..is indeed not a word, it was gleaned directly from an excerpt from Barack Obama’s book; (The Audacity of Hope), that I copied from; …
Anyone with a need for any further information on this word may contact the site listed above, or contact Barack Obama directly.
..than for the basic elements that for most of us define a decent life, – food, shelter, electricity, basic health care, education for their children, and the ability to make their way through life without having to endure corruption, violence, or arbitrary power.”
Truth forges understanding, I’ll be back…
