"If we look back into history for the character of present sects in Christianity, we shall find few that have not in their turns been persecutors, and complainers of persecution. The primitive Christians thought persecution extremely wrong in the Pagans, but practised it on one another. The first Protestants of the Church of England, blamed persecution in the Roman church, but practised it against the Puritans: these found it wrong in the Bishops, but fell into the same practice themselves both here and in New England. [Letter to the London Packet, 3 June 1772]" — Benjamin Franklin (The Life and Letters of Benjamin Franklin)

"Done...the SEVENTEENTH DAY of SEPTEMBER, in the year of our LORD one thousand seven hundred and eighty seven." This is the last line of the U.S. Constitution. John Jay, the first Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, stated September 8, 1777: "The Americans are the first people whom Heaven has favored with an opportunity of deliberating upon, and choosing the forms of government under which they should live. All other constitutions have derived their existence from violence or accidental circumstances." James Wilson, who signed the Declaration and Constitution and was appointed to the Supreme Court by George Washington, remarked at Pennsylvania's ratifying convention, November 26, 1787: "Governments, in general, have been the result of force, of fraud, and accident. After a period of 6,000 years has elapsed since the creation, the United States exhibit to the world the first instance...of a nation...assembling voluntarily... and deciding calmly concerning that system of government under which they wou ...

Hereafter, if you should observe an occasion to give your officers and friends a little more praise than is their due, and confess more fault than you can justly be charged with, you only become the sooner for it, a great captain.

president of Legitimus Automotives turns his chair around, facing a copy of the Metamorphosis of Narcissus hanging on the wall behind a row of filing cabs. He moves the painting that hides an immured safe. He founds 309 600 American dollars in piles of hundreds inside the small vault. Ulysses Hercules starts laughing audibly. He is convinced that Benjamin Franklin just winked at him. Suddenly euphoric, he decides to give a 5000 dollars gift to Costa, thinking that a generous bonus will reinforce the Greek's fidelity and respect for him. Awarding a grant is a very unusual gesture for an avaricious man like Ulysses Hercules. That makes him realize that the medicine he took from his wife is much more powerful than ordinary analgesics. He now feels completely doped up; still able to be effective, but definitely intoxicated. Happy and smiling, he puts his clothes back, places two thousand dollars in the left pocket of his pants, two thousand more in his right one and six hundred bucks in his wallet. He loads a ...

Someone sent this to me a long long timeago. I'd like to share it with you: It's the history of a one dollar bill. On the rear of the One Dollar bill, you will see two circles. Together, they comprise the Great Seal of the United States. The First Continental Congress requested that Benjamin Franklin and a group of men come up with Seal. It took those men four years to accomplish this task and another two years to get it approved. If you look at the left-hand circle, you will see a Pyramid. Notice the face is lighted, and the western side is dark. This country was just beginning.. We had not begun to explore the west or decided what we could do for Western Civilization. The Pyramid is uncapped, again signifying that we were not even close to being finished. Inside the Capstone you have the all-seeing eye, an ancient symbol for divinity. It was Franklin 's belief that one man couldn't do it alone, but a group of men, with the help of God, could do anything. 'IN GOD WE TRUST' is on this currency. The Lat .. ...

The United States Constitution was influenced by the concepts and the principles contained in the Iroquois Indian Confederacy form of governance which was founded in indigenous American history. Several different areas must be discussed in order to substantiate this premise that the Native Americans that arrived on the North American continent around 12,000 years ago did indeed influence the very basis of the United States governmental system which is written in the form of the United States Constitution. One of the first concepts which must be explored is the tradition of the Iroquois League, since the basis of the thesis is that the League tradition preceded and influenced the thinking of the Founding Fathers. The next topics must include a discussion of opinions and supporting details that the Iroquoian Confederacy method of governance did influence the development of the U.S. Constitution and specifically how key contributors to the writing of the Constitution, including Benjamin Franklin and Thomas J ...

American printer and publisher, author, inventor and scientist, and diplomat. He become widely known in European scientific circles for his reports of electrical experiments and theories. He invented the lightning rod and a type of stove, still being manufactured, to give more warmth than open fireplaces. The use of bifocal eyeglasses was also his idea. Grasping the fact that by united effort a community may have amenities which only the wealthy few can get for themselves, he helped establish institutions people now take for granted: a fire company (1736), a library (1731), an insurance company (1752), an academy (1751), and a hospital (1751). In some cases these foundations were the first of their kind in North America.

Look at people who discovered a cause that they gave their lives over to, people such as Benjamin Franklin, Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., Mother Teresa, Albert Einstein and Nelson Mandela. They connected with some kind of a crusade that they decided their lives would represent. This engaged their hearts. This made them emotionally charged up about what they were doing. And once we can develop some emotional engagement around a pursuit, rather than simply an intellectual engagement, the excitement flows and the energy explodes.

How have we strayed so far from our roots.. We were warned about what we are doing.. Thomas Jefferson would turn in his grave to see what we did in 1913 with the federal reserve act.. Benjamin Franklin would do the same to see the government funding the people with "freebies" instead of enjoying the profits if thrift and true value.. George Washington would turn to see our opression of christianity in our nation.. the first "White House" whas used for a church.. mass was given.. and god was praised.. weve lost everything that makes us great.. We've sold out to what is easiest.. And for that i am ashamed..
Benjamin Franklin once said "early to bed and early to rise makes man full of turds for the coming day"
DIDACHE Solemnity of the Epiphany of the Lord PLAN FOR SUCCESS “In Bethlehem in Judea, thus it has been written through the prophet.” – Matthew 2:5 On this fourth day of 2015, let me ask you this question: How are you faring with your New Year’s resolutions? Have you been successful so far or have you already ditched them? I read a Time magazine article saying that only eight percent actually succeed in carrying out their resolutions. It also said that making a resolve to change is detrimental because when we fail, we’re prone to frustration and fall even deeper into the vice we want to be free of. We set ourselves up for failure when we make resolutions that aren’t practical. We decide to quit smoking or start a diet or exercise regimen without a workable plan to achieve this. The Bible teaches us to plan carefully so we can succeed in what we have decided. Jesus said, “Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. Won’t you first sit down and estimate the cost to see if you have enough mone ...

I love American history! My favorite historical figure is Ben Franklin. I also love ancient symbols and their meaning. I would enjoy being a mason, just to learn all their knowledge about symbols, they don't allow women to be a mason. Oh, they would say, women can join the Eastern Star. Sorry, I don't want to be in a social club, just learning a few symbols and rituals, isn't enough. They wouldn;t want me anyway. lol I've learned enough on my own, that the Da Vinci Code didn't teach me anything new, and I didn't believe the made up things anyway. So my point! It really makes me mad when some evil heathen takes a great symbol and uses it in their evil ways. For example, the swastika. It was a symbol of eternal life, of good luck, prosperity, the dynamic waterwheel, always turning and giving life to communities. Well Hitler took the symbol for life and reversed it, made it symbol for death & hate, his Nazi party. The last few years, another party has taken a symbol I love and changed it. The tea party an .. ...

Some might find this useful as a consolidation of reasons and cornerstones for our tradition and belief in our Freedoms and further understanding what is Just, Lawful and should be the path of our Nation if we desire to be free, prosperous and exemplary to humanity. The amazing system of governance set forth in the Constitution of these United States of America also greatly influenced by The Declaration of Independence and the Federalist Papers can trace it's roots to the due influence on it's architects by the forward thinking and prosperity building minds which gave rise to The Scottish Enlightenment. Such giants as Francis Hutchenson, David Hume with his brilliant work A Treatise of Human Nature, Adam Smith with similar vision in his Wealth of Nations, Painter and early Abolitionist Allan Ramsay who founded The Select Society from where originated much of the thought that gave influence and inspiration to Champions of Freedom such as James Madison, Alexander Hamilton, Benjamin Franklin, George Washing ...
CareerFusion Absolutely! Benjamin Franklin, one of the Founding Fathers of America said it perfectly. ”Without Continual Growth & Progress such words as Improvement, Achievement & Success have no meaning”. When I returned from my fourth year at CareerFusion held every January in Daytona Beach, I immediately felt new meaning to those words. I felt Empowered like never before! CareerFusion was the brainchild of Beth Thompson, a mentor, a forceful, well spoken, well respected brilliant dental hygienist excelling in the ever-changing dynamics of the Business of Dentistry and Dental Hygiene. Beth started the concept of CareerFusion first named CareerFlow by getting together over a weekend with a few dental hygienists from throughout the country. Beth soon realized that there was a desire and need for us to learn more about the industry, technology and to also have a safe source of camaraderie amongst the profession. Fast forward to 2014 and CareerFusion has moved from a pajama party sleepover weekend in P ...
