 IN CONGRESS, JULY 4, 1776

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America

When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

Phoenix

Quote

As my long time readers may notice, I have changed my header. There is a new look to my website, and I wanted to share with you the process of how this all came about.

I met with Nate on 11/11/11 to go over my ideas of the phoenix.  We discussed what current pictures I liked.  The colors I would like to see on the design.  Then in January we meet again, he had six outstanding examples.  I took them home, and took what parts of the design I loved. We meet for a third time and went over all of the ideas.  It was the end of January that I received the final design.

My editor in chief aka future wife was kind enough to work on the header to bring the most out of the design as possible.  I hope you enjoy it.

I want to thank Nate and Laura on an excellent job!!

If you are interested in Nate designing artwork for you send me an email at preparePDX@nullgmail.com Continue reading

Solar:  “A coronal mass ejection (CME) launched from the sun on Feb. 24th appears set to hit both Earth and Mars. According to analysts at the Goddard Space Weather Lab, the cloud should reach Earth today, Feb. 26th around 1330 UT, followed by Mars two days later”    spaceweather.com

Iran:  Tensions are high with Iran. If we get into a war with them, my advice is to fill up your vehicle ASAP.  You might want to stop by the outlet market and stock up on food.  Iran will use all of their means to stop traffic in the Strait of Hormuz, and when that happens 30-40% of oil will stop flowing.  This means gas prices shoot up and food will follow. Let us pray/hope/believe our governments can resolve their issues.  If anyone is interested I have compiled a list of articles of the USA/Iran issue, just shoot me an email at preparePDX@nullgmail.com

Financial:  Greece is close to defaulting. The more government fights that fact, the more the people fight them. There is an interview on the Ellis Martin report with Jim Sinclair a respected metals trader analyst. In it Jim talks about how five of the biggest US banks insured the bonds of Greece and other nations. If Greece defaults then these US Banks are the hook for paying out the insurance. This is one more issue that the US taxpayer might have to pay for.  He goes on to say how the International Monetary Fund is the deciding factor of whether a country will default or not. It is a very powerful interview. We have a global economy, what affects Europe will affect the USA. Continue reading

Oaths of Enlistment and Oaths of Office

Quote

All of the below information comes directly from http://www.history.army.mil/html/faq/oaths.html

 

The wordings of the current oath of enlistment and oath for commissioned officers are as follows:”I, _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.” (Title 10, US Code; Act of 5 May 1960 replacing the wording first adopted in 1789, with amendment effective 5 October 1962).”I, _____ (SSAN), having been appointed an officer in the Army of the United States, as indicated above in the grade of _____ do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office upon which I am about to enter; So help me God.” (DA Form 71, 1 August 1959, for officers.)

During the Revolutionary War, the Continental Congress established different oaths for the enlisted men and officers of the Continental Army:

Enlisted: The first oath, voted on 14 June 1775 as part of the act creating the Continental Army, read: “I _____ have, this day, voluntarily enlisted myself, as a soldier, in the American continental army, for one year, unless sooner discharged: And I do bind myself to conform, in all instances, to such rules and regulations, as are, or shall be, established for the government of the said Army.” The original wording was effectively replaced by Section 3, Article 1, of the Articles of War approved by Congress on 20 September 1776, which specified that the oath of enlistment read: “I _____ swear (or affirm as the case may be) to be trued to the United States of America, and to serve them honestly and faithfully against all their enemies opposers whatsoever; and to observe and obey the orders of the Continental Congress, and the orders of the Generals and officers set over me by them.” Continue reading
