His own family and Darwin himself married into the same family of Wedgewood for generations and Charles himself would hardly be called a perfect example of health and happiness as he was plagued by many illnesses. Illnesses which in all likelihood came from too many generations of in breeding.
So the high spokesman for evolution and natural selection lived in a world almost the opposite of that world he claimed to have seen and observed around him.
Another fine article, Jim. I always enjoy your stuff.

Do you think the Federal budget can be balanced? It can't and here is why:

Bravo, Bravo, old Buddy.
I take solace in these words and stand humbled in the presence of such a cloud of Patriots who's simple desire is the pursuit of LIFE, LIBERTY and the quest for HAPPINESS. Your words of truth should burn in the hearts of Men and Women who seek this end. May God lead us as a Nation to find these truths to be self evident without bloodshed. Millions of us are prepared for either outcome, and will not rest until this Republic is restored to the place our FOREFATHERS intended. So help us God.

Jim, Fantastic Article--Thanks. So true; "It is well to keep in mind that Progressivism is not progressive at all. It is a retrogressive ideology that guarantees that “we the people” will return to being chattel under the boot-heel of a tyrannical government. That is not hyperbole, but simply the truth of it—and we are not just headed that way; we are there. The question is not whether “we the people” will steadily lose our liberty, but whether we can ever regain it again."
Rush Limbaugh too indicated that we are retro and referred to the FDR Era.
I pray we shall overcome!

What do we say?
What to our Founding Fathers do we say
knowing we just slept our freedoms away
Would those in Gettysburg roll in disgust
Knowing the price they paid for us
Or the million plus that in uniform died
Seeing WE THE PEOPLE just run and hide
Or Americans standing in a reservoir frozen
and those in the jungles when their number was chosen
To volunteers all in Baghdad street fights
Or fighting in mountains all day into night
What do we say to those whom have borne the brunt
The Airmen, sailors, soldiers and grunts
What do we say while they’re standing far off and alone
While those that sent them from a House and a Dome
Ignore the OATH that they stand for even through fear
And WE THE PEOPLE allow it like we just don’t care
What do we say to our own daughters and sons
Willing to fight, as they say; “To the very last one”
to those in GOD’s heaven that paid the ultimate price
While those in the House and Dome care but for party and their price
do we SUPPORT AND DEFEND and fire those in the House and the Dome
or do we listen to marketing schemes and just sit at home
sitting idly by while those that do get enraged
Like an ARMY doctor that we let them put in a cage
What do we say to those that divide us by color and creed
To feed their never ending need for power and greed
Will we stand UNITED for hard fought liberty won
Relieving ourselves of those that have un-become
PATRIOTS draw a line in this nation full of Hallowed ground
In your Patriots heart I pray you again hear the sound
Battle Hymn of the REPUBLIC sounding our plight
Last chance House and Dome because next, we come to fight

The current administration operates more like a crime syndicate than Governance of a Free Republic. Every flavor under the Communist umbrella is well represented under the guise of Democrat controlled WH, Senate, and the minority, for now, in the House. It has come to light there are also Progressives in the Republican Party... The majority of people currently posing as US Gov't. are the antithesis of our Founding Fathers. They are a self serving lot and under the current administration, most of the laws being implemented are not even Constitutional, yet there is no body with the authority to do so, impeding their transformational agenda for America to become a Red State and participate in the New World Order UN Centralized Government. I'm not sure those who wrote and signed the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution ever imagined such impotence in all 3 branches of Government would allow the demise of the most wonderful country God ever saw created, with His blessing, as what is currently being orchestrated and set into motion.
As many talking heads and pundits continue to recite the politically correct critique of Obama's policies and actions, saying he doesn't understand this or that....it's time to stop with the nonsense and start playing hardball with these weasels in office; those running for President under the Republican Brand should take off the gloves and take a cue from Congressman Allen West who is not ashamed to call the bunch currently holding the keys to the country exactly what they are and intend for America. Every Communist body in the country is coming out proudly support Barack Hussein Obama and his policies. Russia, Gorby, support Obama.
O'Neill, you've given plenty of information in your writing and even more with the links you provided for anyone who doesn't understand why we need to return to Constitutional Law & what's at stake here, and a bit of education on why we've gone so far off the rails as a country. Good stuff, fine Patriot! I'm praying for Divine Intervention!

“...When a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government... You can bet 90% of Americans don't know that is part of the Declaration of Independence. They also wouldn't think that it may refer to Washington, D.C. Americans had better wake up and read the NDAA & NDRP orders. Our Bill of Rights have just been nullified.
As for the 'Progressives'..that title is as much a lie as everything else they are doing to us. Lying, amoral, socialist hypocrites.
Their mantra is probably, "Lie to the people for their own good".
We either get back to our forefather's heritage or we will perish as a free nation. Can anybody(in their right mind) look at the gang in D.C. and say they can be trusted with our freedom & security?

"God given Right" is what it boils down to. Why do atheists get involved with government and the ACLU file "selective lawsuits"?
The ACLU does not want you to have something they do not have and that is "Faith in God". They do not want anyone to have faith, faith in their government, faith in their lives, and faith in their well beings!
Damn.........why do people want to be atheists then? Can someone answer this question? Why?

“The sacred rights of mankind are not to be rummaged for among old parchments or musty records. They are written, as with a sunbeam, in the whole volume of human nature, by the hand of the divinity itself; and can never be erased or obscured by mortal power.”—Alexander Hamilton (circa 1755-1804)More...
