If I had a nickle for every time some one has predicted the Apocalypse
through out history, I'd own Manhattan island. If I had a dollar for every
time someone has predicted Obama bringing the Apocalypse about, I'd have a
nice loft in Soho.

Stop feeding the beast withdraw from the system. The 14th amendment created
a corporate citizen from a state citizen. States need to drop their
corporate ties to Washington D.C. Our Union not longer exists, states are
corporate franchises of the federal corporation. Watch season of Treason.

Today is the 800th birthday of the Magna Carta. Happy Magna Carta Day. It
is the original blueprint of modern democracy.
Why the Magna Carta matters (and why it doesn’t)
By Ishaan Tharoor June 15
The Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, Prime Minister David Cameron,
Britain's Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip attend an event marking the
800th anniversary of Magna Carta in Runymede on June 15, 2015.
Britain marked the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta, or "great
charter," on Monday with pomp and solemnity. The British royals attended
the ceremony, which celebrated the medieval document many consider to be
the progenitor of modern republican principles. British Prime Minister
David Cameron hailed the charter, a pact forged in 1215 between England's
much-loathed King John and a clutch of rebellious barons, as forever
shifting "the balance of power between the governed and the government."
The Magna Carta, which was originally known as the Articles of the Barons,
has multiple versions, and its legacy has morphed over time. It's seen both
as a foundational text of the English nation, and as a template for
contemporary conventions governing international rights.
Cameron said the Magna Carta is still celebrated now because people "see
how the great charter shaped the world, for the best part of a millennium,
helping to promote arguments for justice and for freedom."
Why the Magna Carta is so significant:
1. The most important clauses in the Magna Carta are the ones that follow,
excerpted from the British Library's English translation of the charter,
which was written in Latin by England's largely French-speaking nobles.
+ (39) No free man shall be seized or imprisoned, or stripped of his rights
or possessions, or outlawed or exiled, or deprived of his standing in any
way, nor will we proceed with force against him, or send others to do so,
except by the lawful judgment of his equals or by the law of the land.
+ (40) To no one will we sell, to no one deny or delay right or justice.
The barons wanted to curtail the ruling monarch's ability to act
tyrannically against their interests -- from levying cruel taxes to seizing
the property of dissenting nobles. In so doing, they made one of the
Western world's first articulation of due process and the right to a fair
2. The charter was more a peace settlement than a medieval proto-Bill of
Rights. King John was compelled to find agreement with the rebellious
barons, who had earlier laid siege to London, because his reign, and almost
certainly his life, was in danger. Here was a reigning monarch, backed by
supposedly divine mandate, being forced to negotiate and settle on actual
terms with his own putative subjects. It was an unprecedented moment, at
least in British history.
3. The story of the Magna Carta has particularly strong resonance across
the pond. As Harvard historian Jill Lepore recounts in a recent article in
the New Yorker, "the myth of Magna Carta as a single, stable, unchanged
document contributed to the veneration of the Constitution" in the United
Numerous American states have incorporated either the full text of the
document or parts of it in their statute books. The image of King John
affixing his seal to the document is depicted in a mural in the U.S.
Supreme Court, and the document has been invoked in the arguments of
Supreme Court justices up to the present day.
A 1941 memorandum by the British Foreign Office mused over the special
resonance the Magna Carta had in the U.S. "America was created in 1776 by a
document; the most precious national relic they possess. That document is
an affirmation of personal and national liberty, and it is, in American
thinking, an 18th Century child of Magna Carta," it read.
What shouldn't be celebrated:
1. Not long after King John agreed to the Magna Carta, he sent it to the
Pope in Rome with the hope that it would be nullified. The Vatican, which
was probably as appalled at this subversion of sovereign authority as the
weak British monarch was, duly obliged, annulling it by papal bull in
August of 1215. The great contract between ruler and subjects, at least in
its original form, lasted a matter of weeks before hostilities resumed once
more. King John would die of dysentery the following year.
Moreover, the charter's principles were hardly novel. As Lepore notes, the
"Magna Carta borrows from many earlier agreements; most of its ideas,
including many of its particular provisions, are centuries old." Well
before 1215, monarchs had been bound to just governance by ceremonial
oaths, and the terms of their rule spelled out in writing. Myriad ancient
cultures had their own particular traditions of law-giving and liberty.
2. Sure, it was written eight centuries ago, but it's hard to read the
Magna Carta as some sort of early blueprint of modern democracy -- as many
now consider it. Nowhere in its original text do words relating to
democracy or a parliament appear. The charter refers to the rights of "free
men," but the vast mass of the realm's inhabitants at the time did not
belong to that category. Instead, far from the rights of all men, the Magna
Carta reflected the interests of a tiny coterie of powerful men, who were
mostly interested in consolidating and protecting their power.
3. Another feature of its time: The Magna Carta is conspicuously anti-women
and anti-Semitic. One clause prohibits a woman from accusing a man of
murder or manslaughter, while two others sought to place limits on the
money owed specifically to Jewish moneylenders.
