"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 ...

Game 960. It`s a mess. Front row of pawns is the same as in usual ordinary chess, but the backyard is all shuffled.

Like an hour ago when I got my King pinned with enemy`s rook while trying to fork above said rook and also the Quinn. Gameis a very special game. Because you look but do not see.

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. Criticizing and censuring almost everyone you have to do with, will diminish friends, increase enemies, and thereby hurt your affairs. -- Benjamin Franklin: Letter to John Paul Jones, 1780

Money has never made man happy, nor will it, there is nothing in its nature to produce happiness. The more of it one has the more one wants. - Benjamin Franklin This can be said of all that is in nature. No material gain can bring genuine happiness. Nor, in wealth of any means or measure, can we find contentment. Be thankful for all you possess. Exercise contentment while practicing good stewardship. Remember, to whom much is given, much is required.

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 ...

Benjamin Franklin could count by twos and tie his shoes, he could zip zippers and button buttons...
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 ...

will feature, this Sunday, famous scientists who were born during the month of January. Benjamin Franklin 17 Jan 1706; died 17 Apr 1790 at age 84. 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..

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.

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!

Brilliant men telling it like it is. "A free people ought to be armed." - George Washington "Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety." - Benjamin Franklin "No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms." - Thomas Jefferson "I prefer dangerous freedom over peaceful slavery." - Thomas Jefferson "The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man." - Thomas Jefferson (quoting 18th century criminologist Cesare Beccaria) "A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played ...
Page Eleven BANK OF AMERICA International bankers saw that usury-free script would keep America free of their influence, so, by 1781, banker-backed, Alexander Hamilton succeeded in starting the Bank of America. After a few years of "bank money". the prosperity of "Colonial Script" was gone. Benjamin Franklin said, "Conditions were so reversed that the era of prosperity had ended and a depression set in, to such an extent that the streets of the Colonies were filled with the unemployed!" Bank money was like our FED money. It had debt and usury attached. By 1790, Hamilton and his bankers had created a privately, owned, central bank and converted the public debt (usury-free), into usury-bearing bonds, payable to the bankers. When Hamilton's bank charter expired in 1811, the international bankers started the War of 1812. By 1816, another privately-owned U.S. bank was started with $35 million in assets - only $7 million of that was owned by the government. This bank lasted for 20 years. U.S. history shows that ...

How great it is to be home for Christmas this year. Absolutely wonderful. I know I certainly didn't always appreciate it, but after being forced to spend it away last year (as well as Thanksgiving), it's really become special. Spending my final Christmas while living at home, with my family, who I don't always appreciate either. I hope its a good one, it has been so far. The whole second half of the year really stepped it up compared to the first half, and it only looks to get better. 2014 really was my year (if you haven't already heard that wonderful epiphany that I had a while back please inquire) and 2015 will be too, as well as all of them to come (even if they don't add up to G, I'll find some other way to connect it). Here's to spending the rest of my Christmases (is that how you would spell that?) with people I actually want to spend it with, and wearing funny costumes and posting pictures of it online. Because, if I'm not having fun, its probably about a year ago and time machines are now real, i ...

BEER ~ FAMOUS QUOTES Sometimes, after playing golf, I reflect on all the beer I drink, I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and I think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. I think, "It is better to drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver." Babe Ruth "I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day." Winston Churchill "When I read about the evils of drinking after golfing I gave up reading." Paul Horning "24 hours in a day, 24 beers in a case. Coincidence? I think not." H. L. Mencken "When we drink, we get drunk. When we get drunk, we fall asleep. When we fall asleep, we commit no sin. When we commit no sin, we go to heaven. So, let's all get drunk and go to heaven!" George Bernard Shaw "Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy." Benjamin Fra ...

So I will end my little tale with a warning from Benjamin Franklin, who by the way was a good friend of Santa's, just like me: "Those who trade Liberty for Security, deserve neither." So with a wave of my hand and the roar of my engine, I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a great, long, winter's nap, until the morrow; you already have the moral. As always, all was in jest and not written to offend, only to make to laugh and perhaps, think.
Many people take this week off from work and school to spend time with their families. The holidays are a good time to strengthen our connections and renew relationships. So turn off the cell phones, computers and televisions and take time to focus on your family. Here are a few ideas you can try to spend time with your family. - Family game night. Spend at least one night during the holidays with the TV off and the family huddled together to play a favorite game. You may pay cards, bingo or any other family favorite. Consider continuing this practice throughout the year and designate at least one night per week as family game night. - Play outdoors together. You can ride bikes, play ball, or go for a hike. It'll give the entire family some fresh air, exercise and great fun. - Spend some one-on-one time with each child if you have more than one. Spending time alone provides time to bond with the child and helps them gain a sense of belonging and feeling of importance. It also provides an opportunity for t ...

Today in history: 1745: Benjamin Rush is born On this day in 1745, patriot, physician and social reformer Benjamin Rush is born in Byberry Township, Pennsylvania. The two great "Benjamins" of the revolutionary generation, Benjamin Franklin and Benjamin Rush, shared status as Renaissance men and Philadelphians. Despite Franklin's greater fame, Dr. Rush was actually the better-educated, more widely traveled and more broadly experienced of the two. Benjamin Franklin's mystique comes from his status as a self-made man without a formal education. By contrast, Benjamin Rush was educated at the best universities on both sides of the Atlantic. After his father died when he was just six years old, his mother put him in the care of his uncle, Reverend Samuel Finley, who later became president of the College of New Jersey, now Princeton University. Rush received his Bachelor of Arts from the College in 1760 with the intention of becoming a lawyer. Instead, he began studying medicine in Philadelphia before traveling ...

Today in history: 1732: Poor Richard's Almanack is published On this day in 1732, Benjamin Franklin of Philadelphia first published Poor Richard's Almanack. The book, filled with proverbs preaching industry and prudence, was published continuously for 25 years and became one of the most popular publications in colonial America, selling an average of 10,000 copies a year. Franklin was born in Boston in 1706 and was apprenticed to his brother, a printer, at age 12. In 1729, Franklin became the official printer of currency for the colony of Pennsylvania. He began publishing Poor Richard's, as well as the Pennsylvania Gazette, one of the colonies' first and best newspapers. By 1748, Franklin had become more interested in inventions and science than publishing. He spent time in London representing Pennsylvania in its dispute with England and later spent time in France. He returned to America in March 1775, with war on the horizon. He served on the Second Continental Congress and helped draft the Declaration of ...
Benjamin Franklin founded the Pennsylvania Hospital in 1751, America's first hospital.
France recognized American independence. (1777) France was the first European nation to formally recognize America as an independent nation rather than a British colony. France's early recognition — some two years after the American Revolutionary war started and about five years before it ended — may largely be due to Benjamin Franklin's diplomatic visits to Paris during the war. The Dutch Republic was the second nation to recognize American independence; it did so in 1782. w Geek. Like I said before, France is the mother of this country. Not England.

To be a good American, we should read the works of the Founding Fathers, and discern their intentions through their words. “I have lived, sir, a long time, and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth-that God governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, is it probable that an empire can rise and fall without His aid?” “History will also afford frequent opportunities of showing the necessity of a public religion and the excellency of the Christian religion above all others, ancient or modern.” Benjamin Franklin "You do well to learn our arts and ways of life, and above all, the religion of Jesus Christ. These will make you a greater and happier people than you are. Congress will do everything they can to assist you in this wise intention." George Washington I have sometimes thought there could be no stronger testimony in favor of Religion or against temporal Enjoyments even the most rational and manly than for men who occupy ...

10 Reasons The U.S. Is No Longer The Land Of The Free Assassination of U.S. citizens President Obama has claimed, as President George W. Bush did before him, the right to order the killing of any citizen considered a terrorist or an abettor of terrorism. Last year, he approved the killing of U.S. citizen Anwar al-Awlaqi and another citizen under this claimed inherent authority. Last month, administration officials affirmed that power, stating that the president can order the assassination of any citizen whom he considers allied with terrorists. (Nations such as Nigeria, Iran and Syria have been routinely criticized for extrajudicial killings of enemies of the state.) Indefinite detention Under the law signed last month, terrorism suspects are to be held by the military; the president also has the authority to indefinitely detain citizens accused of terrorism. While Sen. Carl Levin insisted the bill followed existing law “whatever the law is,” the Senate specifically rejected an amendment that would ex ...

On this day in 1775, the Second Continental Congress, meeting in Philadelphia, establishes a Committee of Secret Correspondence. The committee's goal was to provide European nations with a Patriot interpretation of events in Britain's North American colonies, in the hope of soliciting aid for the American war effort. The committee, consisting of Benjamin Franklin, Benjamin Harrison, John Dickinson, John Hay and Robert Morris, instructed Silas Deane to meet with French Foreign Minister Charles Gravier, Count de Vergennes, to stress America's need for military stores and assure the French that the colonies were moving toward "total separation" from Great Britain. Covert French aid began filtering into the colonies soon after the outbreak of hostilities in 1775. Deane, a Connecticut delegate to the Continental Congress, left for France on the secret mission on March 3, 1776.
Fun Facts about the First Thanksgiving The Plymouth Pilgrims were the first to celebrate the Thanksgiving. The Pilgrims sailed across the Atlantic Ocean to reach North America. They sailed on the ship, which was known by the name of 'Mayflower'. They celebrated the first Thanksgiving Day at Plymouth, Massachusetts. The Wampanoag Indians were the people who taught the Pilgrims how to cultivate the land. The Pilgrim leader, Governor William Bradford, had organized the first Thanksgiving feast in 1621. He invited the neighboring Wampanoag Indians to the feast. The first Thanksgiving celebration lasted three days. Mashed potatoes, pumpkin pies, popcorn, milk, corn on the cob, and cranberries were not foods present on the first Thanksgiving's feast table. Lobster, rabbit, chicken, fish, squashes, beans, chestnuts, hickory nuts, onions, leeks, dried fruits, maple syrup and honey, radishes, cabbage, carrots, eggs, and goat cheese are thought to have made up the first Thanksgiving feast. The pilgrims didn't use f ...

Remains of ten bodies, six of which were children, were found under the home of Benjamin Franklin. This evidence might imply that Benjamin Franklin practiced ritual human sacrifice. This is not surprising considering Franklin’s known Masonic and Hellfire Club associations. WORKMEN have dug up the remains of ten bodies hidden beneath the former London home of Benjamin Franklin, the founding father of American independence. The remains of four adults and six children were discovered during the £1.9 million restoration of Franklin’s home at 36 Craven Street, close to Trafalgar Square. Researchers believe that there could be more bodies buried beneath the basement kitchens. Initial estimates are that the bones are about 200 years old and were buried at the time Franklin was living in the house, which was his home from 1757 to 1762, and from 1764 to 1775. Most of the bones show signs of having been dissected, sawn or cut. One skull has been drilled with several holes. Paul Knapman, the Westminster Coroner ...

re·pub·lic rəˈpəblik/ noun a state in which supreme power is held by the people and their elected representatives, and which has an elected or nominated president rather than a monarch. The deliberations of the Constitutional Convention of 1787 were held in strict secrecy. Consequently, anxious citizens gathered outside Independence Hall when the proceedings ended in order to learn what had been produced behind closed doors. The answer was provided immediately. A Mrs. Powel of Philadelphia asked Benjamin Franklin, "Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?" With no hesitation whatsoever, Franklin responded, "A republic, if you can keep it."

AMERICAN PHILOSOPHY The term “American Philosophy,” perhaps surprisingly, has been somewhat vague. While it has tended to primarily include philosophical work done by Americans within the geographical confines of the United States, this has not been exclusively the case. For example, Alfred North Whitehead came to the United States relatively late in life. On the other hand, George Santayana spent much of his life outside of the United States. Until only recently, the term was used to refer to philosophers of European descent. Another focus for defining, or at least characterizing, American Philosophy has been on the types of philosophical concerns and problems addressed. While American philosophers have worked on traditional areas of philosophy, such as metaphysics, epistemology, and axiology, this is not unique to American Philosophy. Many scholars have highlighted American philosophers’ focus on the interconnections of theory and practice, on experience and community, though these, too, are not u ...

Native American's contributed more to the building of this nation than people know. In regard's to the Constitution one source, hiding in plain sight, so to speak, is frequently overlooked. This is the contribution of native Americans, particularly the Iroquois, to the mix. The Iroquois constitution, called the Great Law of Peace, or Gayanashagowa, contains many echoes of our Constitution, and in a number of respects, is more advanced in thought than the Constitution that resulted from the Convention of 1787. This is not something I made up. If you read the original documents from the time, from people like Benjamin Franklin and George Washington, you will easily see that they deeply acknowledged their debt to the Iroquois and other native Americans. It's no accident that the protestors at the Boston Tea Party chose to disguise themselves as Indians. They did this out of respect for the democratic and free nature of Indian society - something they were trying to establish in the face of what they co ...
