    There is NOTHING in the Constitution that limits the SCOTUS to 9 schmucks in black robes.

    The next GOP POTUS must take over the SCOTUS and PACK it with enough conservatives to implement an agenda that PERMANENTLY destroys the American Communists ability to ever control any branch of Government again.

    Nixons party wouldn't support him, so he resigned.

    The domestic communists starting with Clinton have exposed the fatal flaw in the Constitution.

    We've turned a corner and there is no going back.

    The POTUS can be a dictator and as long as his party is on board there isn't a damn thing that can be done about it.

    On the bright side, under those conditions a right wing POTUS/DICTATOR could fundamentally transform America and fix it so the left could never take power again.

    Consider this from the same source:

    "I think it’s great for two people to be together. That is a good number. I think, that to keep it alive though, you can’t spend every day together. It wears out the magic, Love means nothing to me if it’s not fortified with fierce, painful longing, brief explosive instances of furious passion and intimacy and then a sad parting for a time. In that way, you can give your life to it and still have a life of your own.

    I think some couples spend too much time together. They flatten out the potential for experience by constant closeness. Passion builds over time like steam. Let it rage until it’s exhausted and then leave it alone to let it build up again. Why can’t love be insane and distorted? How can it be vital if it has the same threshold as normal day-to-day experience? Why can’t you write burning letters and let your nocturnal self smolder with desire for one who is not there? Why not let the days before you see her be excruciating and ferment in your mind so on the day you go to the airport to pick her up, you’re nearly sick with anticipation? And then when desire shows the first sign of contentment, throw it back it its cage and let it slowly build itself back into a state of starved fury. Then when you are together, it all matters. So that when you look into her eyes, you lose your balance, so that when she touches you, it feels like you have never been touched before.

    When she says your name, you think it was she who named you. When she has gone, you bury your face in the pillow to smell her hair and you lie awake at night remembering your face in her neck, her breathing and the amazing smell of her skin. Your eyes go wet because you want her so bad and miss her so much. Now that is worth the miles and the time. That matches the inferno of life. Otherwise you poison each other with your presence day after day as you drag each other through the inevitable mundane aspects of your lives.

    That is the slow death that I see slapped on faces everywhere I go. It’s part of the world’s sadness that’s more empty than cold, poorly lit rooms in cities of the American night"

    In other words, a slow natural death tagging along after a depressing life is ones personal decision to pursue, in that if you don't have the stones to live life on the edge, then get your happy on and embrace boring.

    Suicides are murderers, sometimes they take only themselves, sometimes they take others.

    Bottom line is that death sucks, it's unpredictable, and when kids are involved it is the ultimate horror.

    It's wise to avoid inflicting horror on kids by all means necessary.

    All muhhamedan animals out of USA!.

    islam is a terrorist death cult and criminal enterprise, the most dangerous faction on the planet, and an existential threat to the American public.

    "Between these two religions, thus contrasted in their characters, a war of twelve hundred years has already raged. That war is yet flagrant; nor can it cease but by the extinction of that imposture, which has been permitted by Providence to prolong the degeneracy of man. While the merciless and dissolute dogmas of the false prophet shall furnish motives to human action, there can never be peace upon earth, and good will towards men.".

    "In the seventh century of the Christian era, a wandering Arab of the lineage of Hagar, the Egyptian, combining the powers of transcendent genius, with the preternatural energy of a fanatic, and the fraudulent spirit of an impostor, proclaimed himself as a messenger from Heaven, and spread desolation and delusion over an extensive portion of the earth.

    Adopting from the sublime conception of the Mosaic law, the doctrine of one omnipotent God; he connected indissolubly with it, the audacious falsehood, that he was himself his prophet and apostle. Adopting from the new Revelation of Jesus, the faith and hope of immortal life, and of future retribution, he humbled it to the dust, by adapting all the rewards and sanctions of his religion to the gratification of the sexual passion. He poisoned the sources of human felicity at the fountain, by degrading the condition of the female sex, and the allowance of polygamy; and he declared undistinguishing and exterminating war, as a part of his religion, against all the rest of mankind.

    THE ESSENCE OF HIS DOCTRINE WAS VIOLENCE AND LUST: TO EXALT THE BRUTAL OVER THE SPIRITUAL PART OF HUMAN NATURE

    Between these two religions, thus contrasted in their characters, a war of twelve hundred years has already raged. That war is yet flagrant; nor can it cease but by the extinction of that imposture, which has been permitted by Providence to prolong the degeneracy of man. While the merciless and dissolute dogmas of the false prophet shall furnish motives to human action, there can never be peace upon earth, and good will towards men.

    The hand of Ishmael will be against every man, and every man’s hand against him. It is, indeed, amongst the mysterious dealings of God, that this delusion should have been suffered for so many ages, and during so many generations of human kind, to prevail over the doctrines of the meek and peaceful and benevolent Jesus" (Blunt, 1830, 29:269, capitals in orig.).

    Rome2000 to Arthur McGowan

    “Full many a cause, my dear sir summoner,”Thus said the summoner, and in meanwhile
    The yeoman just a little began to smile.
    “Brother,” said he, “and will you that I tell?
    I am a fiend, my dwelling is in Hell.
    But here I ride about in hope of gain
    And that some little gift I may obtain.
    My only income is what so is sent.
    I see you ride with much the same intent
    To win some wealth, you never care just how;
    Even so do I, for I would ride, right now,
    Unto the world’s end, all to get my prey.”
    “Ah,” cried he, “ben’cite! What do you say?
    I took you for a yeoman certainly.
    You have a human shape as well as I;
    Have you a figure then determinate
    In Hell, where you are in your proper state?”
    “Nay,” said he, “there of figure we have none;
    But when it pleases us we can take one,
    Or else we make you think we have a shape,
    Sometimes like man, or sometimes like an ape;
    Or like an angel can I seem, you know.
    It is no wondrous thing that this is so;
    A lousy juggler can deceive, you see,
    And by gad, I have yet more craft than he.”
    “Why,” asked the summoner, “ride you then, or go,
    In sundry shapes, and not in one, you know?”
    “Because,” said he, “we will such figures make
    As render likely that our prey we’ll take.”
    “What causes you to have all this labour?”
    “Full many a cause, my dear sir summoner,”
    Replied the fiend, “but each thing has its time.
    The day is short, and it is now past prime,
    And yet have I won not a thing this day.
    I will attend to winning, if I may,
    And not our different notions to declare.
    For, brother mine, your wits are all too bare
    To understand, though I told mine fully.
    But since you ask me why thus labour we-
    Well, sometimes we are God’s own instruments
    And means to do His orders and intents,
    When so He pleases, upon all His creatures,
    In divers ways and shapes, and divers features.
    Without Him we’ve no power, ‘tis certain,
    If He be pleased to stand against our train.
    And sometimes, at our instance, have we leave
    Only the body, not the soul, to grieve;
    As witness job, to whom we gave such woe.
    And sometimes have we power of both, you know,
    That is to say, of soul and body too.
    And sometimes we’re allowed to search and do
    That to a man which gives his soul unrest,
    And not his body, and all is for the best.
    And when one does withstand all our temptation,
    It is the thing that gives his soul salvation;
    Albeit that it was not our intent
    He should be saved; we’d have him impotent.
    And sometimes we are servants unto man,
    As to that old archbishop, Saint Dunstan,
    And to the apostles servant once was I.”
    “Yet tell me,” said the summoner, “faithfully,
    Make you yourselves new bodies thus alway
    Of elements?” The fiend replied thus: “Nay.
    Sometimes we feign them, sometimes we arise
    In bodies that are dead, in sundry wise,
    And speak as reasonably and fair and well
    As to the witch at En-dor Samuel.
    And yet some men maintain it was not he;
    I do not care for your theology.
    But of one thing I warn, nor will I jape,
    You shall in all ways learn our proper shape;
    You shall hereafter come, my brother dear,
    Where you’ll not need to ask of me, as here.
    For you shall, of your own experience,
    In a red chair have much more evidence
    Than Virgil ever did while yet alive,
    Or ever Dante; now let’s swiftly drive.
    For I will hold with you my company
    Till it shall come to pass you part from me.”
    “Nay,” said the other, “that shall not betide;
    “I am a bailiff, known both far and wide;
    My promise will I keep in this one case.
    For though you were the devil Sathanas,
    My troth will I preserve to my dear brother,
    As I have sworn, and each of us to other,
    That we will be true brothers in this case;
    And let us both about our business pace.
    Take your own part, of what men will you give,
    And I will mine; and thus may we both live.
    And if that either of us gets more than other,
    Let him be true and share it with his brother.”
    “Agreed, then,” said the devil, “by my fay.”
    And with that word they rode upon their way.
    As they drew near the town- it happened so-
    To which this summoner had planned to go,
    They saw a cart that loaded was with hay,
    The which a carter drove along the way.
    Deep was the mire; for which the cart now stood.
    The carter whipped and cried as madman would,
    “Hi, Badger, Scot! What care you for the stones?
    The Fiend,” he cried, “take body of you and bones,
    As utterly as ever you were foaled!
    More trouble you’ve caused me than can be told!
    Devil take all, the horses, cart, and hay!”
    This summoner thought, “Here shall be played a play.”
    And near the fiend he drew, as naught were there,
    And unobserved he whispered in his ear:
    “Listen, my brother, listen, by your faith;
    Hear you not what the carter says in wrath?
    Take all, at once, for he has given you
    Both hay and cart, and this three horses too.”
    “Nay,” said the devil, “God knows, never a bit.
    It is not his intention, trust to it.
    Ask him yourself, if you believe not me,
    Or else withhold a while, and you shall see.”
    This carter stroked his nags upon the croup,
    And they began in collars low to stoop.
    “Hi now!” cried he, “May Jesus Christ you bless
    And all His creatures, greater, aye and less!
    That was well pulled, old horse, my own grey boy!
    I pray God save you, and good Saint Eloy!
    Now is my cart out of the slough, by gad!”
    “Lo, brother,” said the fiend, “what said I, lad?
    Here may you see, my very own dear brother,
    The peasant said one thing, but thought another.
    Let us go forth upon our travellers’ way;
    Here win I nothing I can take today.”
    When they had come a little out of town,
    This summoner whispered, to his brother drawn,
    “Brother,” said he, “here lives an ancient crone
    Who’d quite as gladly lose her neck as own
    She must give up a penny, good or bad.
    But I’ll have twelvepence, though it drive her mad
    Or I will summon her to our office;
    And yet God knows I know of her no vice.
    But since you cannot, in this strange country,
    Make your expenses, here take note of me.”
    This summoner knocked on the widow’s gate.
    “Come out,” cried he, “you old she-reprobate!
    I think you’ve got some friar or priest there, eh?”
    “Who knocks then?” said the widow. “Ben’cite!
    God save you, master, what is your sweet will?”
    “I have,” said he, “a summons here, a bill;
    On pain of excommunication be
    Tomorrow morn at the archdeacon’s knee
    To answer to the court for certain things.”
    “Now, lord,” said she, “Christ Jesus, King of kings,
    So truly keep me as I cannot; nay,
    I have been sick, and that for many a day.
    I cannot walk so far,” said she, “nor ride,
    Save I were dead, such aches are in my side.
    Will you not give a writ, sir summoner,
    And let my proctor for me there appear
    To meet this charge, whatever it may be?”
    “Yes,” said this summoner, “pay anon- let’s see-
    Twelvepence to me, and I’ll have you acquitted.
    Small profit there for me, be it admitted;
    My master gets the profit, and not I.
    Come then, and let me ride on, speedily;
    Give me twelvepence, I may no longer tarry.”
    “Twelvepence!” cried she, “Our Lady Holy Mary
    So truly keep me out of care and sin,
    And though thereby I should the wide world win,
    I have not twelvepence in my house all told.
    You know right well that I am poor and old;
    Show mercy unto me, a poor old wretch!”
    “Nay, then,” said he, “the foul Fiend may me fetch
    If I excuse you, though your life be spilt!”
    “Alas!” cried she, “God knows I have no guilt!”
    “Pay me,” he cried, “or by the sweet Saint Anne
    I’ll take away with me your brand-new pan
    For debt that you have owed to me of old,
    When you did make your husband a cuckold;
    I paid at home that fine to save citation.”
    “You lie,” she cried then, “by my own salvation!
    Never was I, till now, widow or wife,
    Summoned unto your court in all my life;
    Nor ever of my body was I untrue!
    Unto the Devil rough and black of hue
    Give I your body and my pan also!”
    And when the devil heard her cursing so
    Upon her knees, he said to her just here:
    “Now, Mabely, my own old mother dear,
    Is this your will, in earnest, that you say?”
    “The Devil,” said she, “take him alive today,
    And pan and all, unless he will repent!”
    “Nay, you old heifer, it’s not my intent,”
    The summoner said, “for pardon now to sue
    Because of aught that I have had from you;
    I would I had your smock and all your clo’es.”
    “Nay, brother,” said the devil, “easy goes;
    Your body and this pan are mine by right.
    And you shall come to Hell with me tonight,
    Where you shall learn more of our privity
    Than any doctor of divinity.”
    And with that word this foul fiend to him bent;
    Body and soul he with the devil went
    Where summoners have their rightful heritage.
    And God, Who made after His own image
    Mankind, now save and guide us, all and some;
    And grant that summoners good men become!
    Masters, I could have told you, said this friar,
    Were I not pestered by this summoner dire,
    After the texts of Christ and Paul and John,
    And of our other doctors, many a one,
    Such torments that your hearts would shake with dread,
    Albeit by no tongue can half be said,
    Although I might a thousand winters tell,
    Of pains in that same cursed house of Hell.
    But all to keep us from that horrid place,
    Watch, and pray Jesus for His holy grace,
    And so reject the tempter Sathanas.
    Hearken this word, be warned by this one case;
    The lion lies in wait by night and day
    To slay the innocent, if he but may.
    Dispose your hearts in grace, that you withstand
    The Fiend, who’d make you thrall among his band.
    He cannot tempt more than beyond your might;
    For Christ will be your champion and knight.
    And pray that all these summoners repent
    Of their misdeeds, before the Fiend torment.

    All muhhamedan animals out of USA!.

    islam is a terrorist death cult and criminal enterprise, the most dangerous faction on the planet, and an existential threat to the American public.

    "While the merciless and dissolute dogmas of the false prophet shall furnish motives to human action, there can never be peace upon earth, and good will towards men".

    "In the seventh century of the Christian era, a wandering Arab of the lineage of Hagar, the Egyptian, combining the powers of transcendent genius, with the preternatural energy of a fanatic, and the fraudulent spirit of an impostor, proclaimed himself as a messenger from Heaven, and spread desolation and delusion over an extensive portion of the earth.

    Adopting from the sublime conception of the Mosaic law, the doctrine of one omnipotent God; he connected indissolubly with it, the audacious falsehood, that he was himself his prophet and apostle. Adopting from the new Revelation of Jesus, the faith and hope of immortal life, and of future retribution, he humbled it to the dust, by adapting all the rewards and sanctions of his religion to the gratification of the sexual passion. He poisoned the sources of human felicity at the fountain, by degrading the condition of the female sex, and the allowance of polygamy; and he declared undistinguishing and exterminating war, as a part of his religion, against all the rest of mankind.

    THE ESSENCE OF HIS DOCTRINE WAS VIOLENCE AND LUST: TO EXALT THE BRUTAL OVER THE SPIRITUAL PART OF HUMAN NATURE

    Between these two religions, thus contrasted in their characters, a war of twelve hundred years has already raged. That war is yet flagrant; nor can it cease but by the extinction of that imposture, which has been permitted by Providence to prolong the degeneracy of man. While the merciless and dissolute dogmas of the false prophet shall furnish motives to human action, there can never be peace upon earth, and good will towards men.

    The hand of Ishmael will be against every man, and every man’s hand against him. It is, indeed, amongst the mysterious dealings of God, that this delusion should have been suffered for so many ages, and during so many generations of human kind, to prevail over the doctrines of the meek and peaceful and benevolent Jesus" (Blunt, 1830, 29:269, capitals in orig.).
