Nobody Knows: The Moon, The Queen, and The First Charter of Virginia

Nobody Knows: There are some things in life that never change; politicians, sports, the fact that most things ALWAYS break down on the weekend, and the proper description of property values in legal documents.

This can be VERY important.

Just ask Queen Elizabeth II. I wonder what she was thinking while she was being escorted through the historical remains of Jamestown? Was she thinking--looks like England? Why in the world did they dig THIS up? Or how much longer is this day going to be? Or--- will I dirty my gloves? Did my maid bring the extra pair?

Or...his pants are too short.

If I had been her, I would have been thinking, “What a shame. I could have been Queen of all this too, if not for that stupid King George.”

But it was really James, “By the Grace of God, King of England, Scotland, France, and Ireland” in 1606, that made a big mistake, while drawing up the First Charter of Virginia.

You see, he put something in the First Charter of Virginia that set the precedent which actually lead up to the American Revolution, a proclamation which gave John Adams (and the Boston colonists) all the ammunition they needed: the ending.

“Also We do, for Us, Our Heirs, and Successors, declare, by these presents, (basically the eastern half of the United States, which was not even theirs to give, but no matter here.) that all and every of the persons being Our subjects, which shall dwell and inhabit within every or any of the said several colonies and plantations, and every of their children, which shall happen to be born within any of the limits and precincts of the said several colonies and plantations, shall have and enjoy all liberties, franchises, and immunities, within any of our other dominions, to all intents and purposes, as if they had been abiding and born, within this Our Realm of England, or any of Our said dominions.”

You gotta love the English language.

Yes, that said all Americans get the same equal rights as their British comrades overseas. We all know that didn’t happen. Back then, the people got mad at being overtaxed without representation.

Now, we just get mad at things like the fact that Barry Bonds is going to beat Hank Aaron’s record, but with steroids.

What’s really fun about reading the First Charter of Virginia is the description of the land…they left nothing out; “They shall have all the lands, woods, soils, grounds, havens, ports, rivers, mines, minerals, marshes, waters, fishings, commodities, and herediataments, (they left out the sun somehow) …etc…” and then they added:

yielding therefore to Us, Our Heirs, and Successors, the fifth part only of all the same gold and silver, and the fifteenth part of all the same copper, so to be gotten or had…”

Well, there’s the workings of state capitalism at its best.

I don’t know why it struck me so funny…King James giving land away that he didn’t actually own. I mean--- where was HIS land deed?

I happen to think it’s funny that they can sell land on the moon. Lots of rich people have already forked out millions. Is there some kind of “First Charter of the Lunar” in our National Archives that we don’t know about? Is THAT why we are not hooking up with the Russians to go to the Moon...because we have already sold property there…so there would be a lot of pissed off rich people if the Russians have sold the same lots?

Makes you wonder.

I didn’t think it was so funny, when a lawyer I had once hired to make up some quick claim deeds for me, for some property that I had in Florida, made the mistake of leaving out two whole plots.

In Florida, that’s a lot.

I didn’t catch it, because the descriptions of the other plots were so long and meticulous, I just ASSUMED they were all there.

That’s what you get when you hire a lawyer from another state who wants to know when you will be moving to be next to him, because he thinks he’s James Bond. And when you go to strangle him, he disappears into Las Vegas.

For all I know, he was the guy blown up in the Parking lot last week next to the Elexsor.

So, what’s the main theme of this little rant you might ask?

Nobody Knows,
but I’ll take a stab.

Don’t go putting any “rights of man” into property deeds; nations should get out of the habit of just moving in and claiming property when they don’t own it in the first place:

And do not get cheap lawyers off the internet, you would have better luck buying property on the moon.

Nobody’s Perfect; Après Moi le Déluge

Nobody’s Perfect: Ahhhhhh…Vive le France! Who would have thought, after all these years of actually hating the Americans with the help of Jacques Chirac and the global socialists, that the French people would elect a “conservative” President over a good-looking socialist woman, whose “partner,” (she was not married to him) just happened to be the head of the French Socialist party?

This means, the man who really wanted to be in control---ran his mistress.

Hillary has got to be scared with this news. Since it seems more and more that Bill Clinton is running his wife---some people might see a connection here.

The good news this weekend was that France elected Nicolas Sarkozy, a man who actually did NOT call the United States a bête noire, (beht NWAHR) which means; a person or thing that arouses hatred or fear.

There might be hope for them yet.

It seems the French people have had enough of “socialism” when they started going out to the curb in the morning only to find their nifty little golf-cart cars burned up by Muslims “scums” the night before.

That’s what Nicolas Sarkozy called them--- “scums.” Evidently, they forgot to pass hate-speech crimes in France.

Wow…can you see our President calling a Muslim a “scum” here? Nancy Pelosi would probably have him impeached. No, he uses the word terrorist, and that's when he's feeling spunky.

Not too long ago I distinctly remember being actually shocked when I heard the news that France voted down NOT getting into the European Union. This was because the EU wants Turkey to join and that would mean more massive Muslims immigrants flooding into Europe.

Sounds like the French don’t like their country being taken over any more than we do.

After hearing that delightful news, I went back to buying my favorite L’Oreal mascara.

Bill O’Reilly’s could actually take some credit for Nicolas’s great voter turnout, because Bill asked Americans to boycott French products. I bet I was just one of the many that did.

Somewhere there's an Eiffel tower elevator operator saying, “I meeeiss the Americans. Dey were soooo dissseeesgusting, but they always bought dos cheap Eiffel Tower statues, and teeepped well.”

Let's face it, Chirac was hard to like. He was like a Castro’s step-brother…you know, if you lived to be 115, he would still be there. Some secret French Madame was keeping him alive.

I did not pay much attention to him UNTILL he started saying nice things about Saddam (remember his big oil deals with him) and Hezbollah, and calling us Americans dirty names every chance he could get.

Nobody puts down OUR boys in Iraq. Talk about a “scumbag.” It didn’t matter how haute couture (oht koo-TUR--high fashion) he thought he was, Jacques Chirac was the epitome of hauteur. (oh-teur--arrogance)

Most Americans were still mad at the French for seeming to be so ungrateful for our fathers and grandfathers saving their, to put it nicely, delicate French asses from Germany in WWII.

After all, we did get their country back for them in WWII. We even let Chirac stay in England during all the fighting, and then let him parade himself around the Champs Elysees in a victory parade, as if HE had gotten rid of Hitler all by himself.

But, nobody’s perfect, not even Sarkozy. It seems he is an Al Gore clone, and thinks the United States should “take the lead in battle” against global warming. For that he wants to tax goods from countries that do not cap greenhouse gas emissions.

Of course that hurts our products into France’s market. Unlike our politicians, Sarkozy is going to protect his manufacturing base. He wasn’t budget minister for nothing.

He also means to get rid of the mandated 35-hour work week, which means the French people might actually have to stop taking all those vacations and start working more hours like the Americans. They have to compete with China too.

Sarkozy supports affirmative action, which is not exactly a neo-conservative issue. (a name he has been called.)

But, most importantly, he wants to get the French into the EU. He plans on doing this by convincing the people that the EU should have an elected President.

This nobody thinks that means he is another globalist. The globalists have their goals--- The European Union, the North American “Union” and the Asian Nations…well…that’s the first steps they say. Soon they’ll add the MOON Union.

I guess they figured they had to run a conservative if the EU was ever going to happen.

Despite all the imperfections, it sure is good to my nobody ears to hear a French President say a few nice words about America, even if it’s only that they like Madonna, burgers, and Miami Vice.

Any improvement is a good sign.

It wouldn’t even hurt the American people to take a little lesson from the French in our own upcoming 2008 elections, and get our own Après Moi le Déluge (ah-pray MWAH leu day-LUZH) which means…a coming revolution.

If they keep this up, we might send them a statue of Liberty.
