The Greatest Disaster in American history!

'
Once again in the turning course of time it is here again---the melancholy anniversary of the most dreadful day in American history, the day that did so much to blight the shining possibilities of this continent. I seek shelter in the shade of cypresses, en deuil et crêpe noir, and weep at the ruin of of so many bright hopes.

How ironic that, as one runs over the absurd slanders against King George and the Home Government which fill The so-called "Declaration of Independence" of the insurrectionary terrorists, one is struck by how much so many of them are in fact true of the present US government and its cat's paws, either at home or in its rampages abroad :

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

He has made Judges dependent....

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent...swarms of Officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.

He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies....

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution....

For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us

For protecting them, by a Mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit....

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent

For depriving...in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury

For transporting...beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences

For abolishing the free System of English Laws

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments

He has plundered...seas, ravaged...Coasts, burnt...towns, and destroyed the lives of...people

He is at this time transporting large Armies of...Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy...of a civilized nation.

From the Toronto Globe & Mail :

FOURTH OF JULY NONSENSE ABOUT GEORGE WASHINGTON AND AMERICA'S FOUNDING

Quote:
When Washington assumed command, he wrote letters describing the patriots as rabble and "scum."

Washington was an extremely arrogant and aristocratic man, known in Virginia and at the continental Congress for his aloofness and coldness....Having no great inheritance, he set himself to making a fortune - he became one of the richest men in the Colonies. He achieved that in two ways :

One was through land speculation, on a grand scale in the very territories, further west, that the British government was trying conscientiously to keep for the native people. He would claim and survey land and then sell parcels to new immigrants. He had a reputation as a sharp trader who left more than a few with a sour feeling over their business.

Two, and most importantly, he married the richest woman in the Colonies, the widow Martha Custis, who had been left a good fortune. Theirs was not a warm and loving relationship, but kind of a cordial business deal....

Washington was a terrible general, losing virtually every battle in which he was engaged....A French aristocrat who came over to take a commission...remarked that there was more enthusiasm for the American revolt in the cafés of Paris than he observed in America.

[Washington's] poor soldiers never even received all their back pay. Eventually they were given script, which many sold at huge discounts to the face value because they could not wait so long for their little bit of money, that canny old Washington [was] one of the dealers in buying it up and eventually profiting handsomely.

The insurrectionary terrorists led by George Washington would never have realized their perverted aims if it had not been for French ships, French troops, French arms, French military advisors and French money.

In the 19th century, it was an article of faith among the crowned heads of Europe that the French nation was cursed because it had dared to shed the innocent blood of an anointed monarch.

I am sure that all the problems of France, and the fact that their king was butchered, was due the sin of that monarch in supporting terrorist traitors in rebellion against their legitimate government.
