According to Webster: def·i·ni·tion (in context) n. The act of making clear and distinct.
Using a simple word like “foot” as an example: …
According to Webster: “foot,” (in context) The lower extremity of the vertebrate leg that is in direct contact with the ground in standing or walking.
Which of course, is indeed and in fact; “clear and distinct.”
Absolutely not, because according to my pearlsofprofundity unabashed and unpublished dictionary, (which of course always takes things another step), …
..a foot can also be a device for finding “Legos” in the dark.
Moving on from Legos to Losers…
According to Webster: “los·er,” n. (In context) People that consistently fail; individuals with poor skills.
Okay so it’s not the best segue I’ve come up with to channel politics, but it’s what you’re getting today. 🙂
It would seem that in the 21st Century everyone that served as President of United States, has “decidedly” (not) believed that they, (both of them), “were, or are,” above the law, they, (both of them), believe that they “were and are” the law.
America needed the (Patriot Act) like I needed my heart attack, “we” (America and I), would’ve both been much better off today without them.
The day after the cowardly bastards that flew the airplanes into the twin towers, America had more than adequate laws on the books to deal with them.
And had we had an adequate leader, we would not have a patriot act.
Prior to Barack Obama’s brain fart; “Obamacare” there was absolutely nothing wrong with American system of providing healthcare to the nation.
In Congress 1986, …
Congress enacted the Emergency Medical Treatment & Labor Act (EMTALA) to ensure public access to emergency services regardless of ability to pay.
Section 1867 of the Social Security Act imposes specific obligations on Medicare-participating hospitals that offer emergency services to provide a medical screening examination (MSE) when a request is made for examination or treatment for an emergency medical condition (EMC), including active labor, regardless of an individual’s ability to pay.
Hospitals are then required to provide stabilizing treatment for patients with EMCs. If a hospital is unable to stabilize a patient within its capability, or if the patient requests, an appropriate transfer should be implemented.
Which of course, (in my traditional conservative opinion), is more than fair, as the U.S. Constitution “as penned” by our founding fathers, provides no promise of free medical care.
The U.S. Constitution, “as penned” by our founding fathers does guarantee some (inalienable) rights; The right to free speech, the right to a free press, the right to assemble and express grievances to the government.
The U.S. Constitution also guarantees (a citizen) the right to “Keep and Bear Arms.”
It guarantees (a citizen), protection against illegal search and seizure.
Cutting to the chase, the Constitution guarantees (a citizen) “opportunity” …
According to Webster: “op·por·tu·ni·ty,” n., An advantageous circumstance.
The Constitution “as penned” by our founding fathers does not guarantee anyone, and I mean “anyone”…
Starting with Barack Obama and running the course back to George Washington, our presidents and our elected officials at any level draw their wages from the taxpayers, thus put as simply as possible, “they” work for the taxpayers, “they” are “our” employees.
According to Webster: “em·ploy·ee,” n. A person who works for another in return for financial or other compensation.
In the real world, it is not within Barack Obama’s purview to do as he pleases, it is (his job) to do what pleases those that he works for, i.e., you and I.
Question: If you are a citizen of the United States and you are gainfully employed, does your employer require you to be honest, responsible, respectful and loyal to him or her?
According to Webster: “hon·es·ty,” n. The quality or condition of being honest; integrity.
According to Webster: “re·spon·si·ble,” adj. Required to give account, as of one’s actions or of the discharge of a duty or trust.
According to Webster: “re·spect·ful,” adj. Showing or marked by proper respect.
According to Webster: “loy·al,” adj. Steadfast in allegiance to a nation, to a person, an ideal, a custom, a cause, or a duty.
