declaration of independence 7.6x10^99, pelosi 0

update 2: apparently this post caused quite the kerfuffle in imao's comments section! here is my input, with the intent to clarify - i intend no defensiveness.
  • my choice of the word "shamelessly" was mostly facetious. the only semi-serious intent that word might hold was that i had no shame in the pro-America-anti-pelosi-ness of the content.
  • if i had intended to truly plagiarize the piece, i would not have provided links to the original.
  • harvey of imao has stated that neither he nor frank j is upset about this.
  • as my archives can show, my habit is to provide a shorter excerpt with a "read the rest"-style link.
  • the spirit of the length of this copied portion was to reinforce the seriousness of the threat that president hussein-o and his cronies are to the foundations of America. 
everybody cool now? i think the affected parties are...  ;)


update 1: wooohooo, it's an imaolanch! thanks :)

Well, Nance, as long as we’re plucking random phrases from the D of I and hotgluing them to Obamacare, here’s a few more choice nuggets from the document you so obviously revere that might be more appropriately attached to this President and his sundry legislations:
  • whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it
  • a long train of abuses and usurpations
  • a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism
  • repeated injuries and usurpations
  • the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States
  • refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
  • forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance
  • utterly neglected to attend
  • the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures
  • his invasions on the rights of the people
  • exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without
  • obstructed the Administration of Justice
  • sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance
  • subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution
  • abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments
  • works of death, desolation, and tyranny
  • Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation
  • excited domestic insurrections amongst us
  • Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury
  • deaf to the voice of justice
  • A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

As a first time visitor here from IMAO, allow me to correct an error made by the many others from there who came here and left nothing: good post.
