Know Your Freedoms Demand Your Liberties

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

Liberty must at all hazards be supported.

We have a right to it, derived from our Maker. But if we had not, our fathers have earned and bought it for us, at the expense of their ease, their estates, their pleasure, and their blood.”

– John Adams, 1765

==========

The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands, whether of one, a few, or many, and whether hereditary, self-appointed, or elective,

may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny.

– James MadisonFederalist 47, 1788

===========

One of the most essential branches of English liberty is the freedom of one’s house. A man’s house is his castle.

– James Otis, on the Writs of Assistance, 1761

Me Too…Only I Did A Hepburn and Davis…

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

Yes, I too have a few stories to tell but- I took matters into my own hands and respectively told the guy to buzz off in no uncertain terms and in the other instance landed my arm between his shoulder blades – the only time I ever hit anyone, it happened in public at The Mardi Gras in New Orleans.

One guy in the crowd said “aw he was just joking.”

another guy said ” Good for you. he deserved it.”

The details are not important except for the fact that I was 19 and 26 respectively at the time –

The question to ask is what would have Bette Davis or Katheran Hepburn don– if asked to watch something —to get a job…

I am not talking about rape or physical assault -I am talking about being somewhere and having to deal with a jerk- What would Susan B. Anthony do?  

I am talking about the fact that men are not more powerful than women– we are equal that is what the feminists of the past, taught me.

 

Peace

They sit next to one another
sparkling in your eye
as you glance into the sky
each night
they beckon
pouring liquid ideas and inspirations
into your heart
look up -and count the constellations
relieve
your daily consternations.

(Jake and Elwood are driving in the new Bluesmobile, a former police car.]

Jake: What’s this?
Elwood: What?
Jake: This car. This stupid car. Where’s the Cadillac?
[He tries the cigarette lighter, finds it doesn’t work, and throws it out the window.]
Jake: The Caddy, where’s the Caddy?
Elwood: The what?
Jake: The Cadillac we used to have. The Bluesmobile.
Elwood: I traded it.
Jake: You traded the Bluesmobile for this?

Elwood: No, for a microphone.
Jake: A microphone? Okay, I can see that. But what the hell is this?
Elwood:This was a bargain. I picked it up at the Mount Prospect City police auction last spring. It’s an old Mount Prospect police car. They were practically giving them away.
Jake: Well, thank you, pal. The day I get out of prison, my own brother picks me up in a police car.
[Fog horn and warning bell sounds.]
Elwood: You don’t like it?
Jake: No, I don’t like it.

[Elwood jumps the car over an opening drawbridge.]

Jake: Car’s got a lot of pickup.

Elwood: It’s got a cop motor, a four hundred and forty cubic inch plant. It’s got cop tires, cop suspensions, cop shocks. It’s a model made before catalytic converters, so it’ll run good on regular gas. What do you say? Is it the new Bluesmobile or what?

[Jake lights a cigarette using his own lighter.]
Jake: Fix the cigarette lighter.
