So, this year I have been busy as usual having fun with PhotoShop. One of my favorite topics of the year seems to be the Presidential debate. Who would have thought that, right? Most of these images were posted to places like Facebook, and you wouldn’t believe the responses some of them would get. Some of them, people actually thought they were real (ie, “I thought North Korea endorsed Trump….”). More proof that people will believe almost anything they read online (victims of my forever on-going study of the human psyche).

Anyway, I wanted to share a small collection of these images right (continue reading…)

Thomas Jefferson knew because he-himself studied the previous failed
attempts at government. He understood actual history, the nature of “God”, his laws and the nature of man. That happens to be way more than what most understand today. Jefferson really knew his stuff. A voice from the past to lead us in the future:

John F. Kennedy held a dinner in the white House for a group of the
brightest minds in the nation at that time. He made this statement:”This is
perhaps the assembly of the most intelligence ever to gather at one time in the White House with the exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined alone.”

When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe, we
shall become as corrupt as Europe .
Thomas Jefferson

The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.
Thomas Jefferson

It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes. A
principle which if acted on would save one-half the wars of the world.
Thomas Jefferson

I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the
government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of
taking care of them.
Thomas Jefferson

My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.
Thomas Jefferson

No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.
Thomas Jefferson

The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in
government.
Thomas Jefferson

The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood
of patriots and tyrants.
Thomas Jefferson

To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas
which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.
Thomas Jefferson

Thomas Jefferson said in 1802:
“I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties
than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to
control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation,
the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive
the people of all property – until their children wake-up homeless on the
continent their fathers conquered.”;

I wish we could get this out to everyone.
