I just finished number 5 of 14 for the Samson songs. I have one more on the series with Delilah. This was the second – “Playing With the Gift.” It is the interaction where Delilah is trying to figure out the origin of his strength so she can subdue him and get paid handsomely and Samson who is just trying to enjoy himself and wondering how much of his strength is just himself. I took that tact because it occurred to me that according to the story, he had that strength from the womb. The old question – does a fish know it’s wet? I can see Samson not knowing what it was like to be without strength until the shaving incident. That will be between this and the next song.

27 October, 2011
I was reading an article on natural tendencies and was reminded of an incident in kidinbox’s early life. Kidinbox was in the neighborhood of two years old and I had the habit of trying to sneak in to the daycare and observe the child’s actions that occurred without my presence. Otherwise stated: how do you behave when I’m not around? Anyways, I was looking through the window and observed my angelic (cough) child bite their own right arm just below the elbow, start to cry, and then point at some unsuspecting child who had the misfortune of being in the vicinity. Just the lovely sight a parent needs to see. The blame didn’t work as kidinbox had not planned parental presence. I was left with the mystical feeling of how natural behaving badly is, as no one had trained this child to behave in that fashion. I so agree with the article when stated: “Child rearing is thus the essential program of taming the savage, of socializing and humanizing it, of coaxing it to internalize morality.”
Lack of that taming has produced the results we are seeing in the news.

Comments Off on quick confirmation
I mentioned sending a note to the Secretary of State and wanted to let you know of their quick reply:
Each filing office is the certifier of their candidates. Our office only certifies state and district level independent and write in candidates, and candidates for legislative vacancies resulting from death and resignations.
I sent them a reply thanking them for their quick reply and now know that this office is not responsible for pres 0 being on the ballot. The search continues.

Comments Off on Minor v Happersett, 88 U.S. 162 Case
This case is found here.
Supreme Court case Minor v. Happerset set the standard for who was considered a citizen and eligible to be president. The following is copied from the decision:
“No person except a natural-born citizen or a citizen of the United States at the time of the adoption of the Constitution shall be eligible to the office of President, [Footnote 7]”
and that Congress shall have power “to establish a uniform rule of naturalization.” Thus, new citizens may be born or they may be created by naturalization.
The Constitution does not in words say who shall be natural-born citizens. Resort must be had elsewhere to ascertain that. At common law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were natives or natural-born citizens, as distinguished from aliens or foreigners. Some authorities go further and include as citizens children born within the jurisdiction without reference to the citizenship of their
Page 88 U. S. 168
parents. As to this class there have been doubts, but never as to the first. For the purposes of this case, it is not necessary to solve these doubts. It is sufficient for everything we have now to consider that all children born of citizen parents within the jurisdiction are themselves citizens. The words “all children” are certainly as comprehensive, when used in this connection, as “all persons,” and if females are included in the last, they must be in the first. That they are included in the last is not denied. In fact, the whole argument of the plaintiffs proceeds upon that idea.
Under the power to adopt a uniform system of naturalization, Congress, as early as 1790, provided “that any alien, being a free white person,” might be admitted as a citizen of the United States, and that the children of such persons so naturalized, dwelling within the United States, being under twenty-one years of age at the time of such naturalization, should also be considered citizens of the United States, and that the children of citizens of the United States that might be born beyond the sea, or out of the limits of the United States, should be considered as natural-born citizens. [Footnote 8] These provisions thus enacted have in substance been retained in all the naturalization laws adopted since. In 1855, however, the last provision was somewhat extended, and all persons theretofore born or thereafter to be born out of the limits of the jurisdiction of the United States, whose fathers were or should be at the time of their birth citizens of the United States were declared to be citizens also.
The last sentence clearly defines the requirement resting on the parentage, not the location of birth. For the press, blogs, President 0, and others to keep focused on a bogus birth certificate is to follow the moving hand of the magician. The other hand is hiding the fact that by unanimous decision, the United States Supreme Court has declared Barack Hussein Obama ineligible to be president due to the simple fact that his father was a British citizen. Period. No grey areas here. What remains for us is to get the officials to apply the law where it needs to be applied. I have already written my two senators and congressman. The Texas Secretary of State is also on my list as the individual who certifies the eligibility of the candidates. I have sent an e-mail to confirm I have the correct office, and then will send them the same information once I have confirmed their responsibility.
Note what has been missing through this entire presentation. There was no mention of the individuals who hid this information from the same site where I linked. This was hidden in 2008 and replaced this last year or so. The act of sedition also requires a response. Here is the link to the report that has been posted previously. I would not have known about this action except this report was distributed to me.

Comments Off on Agree with the sentiment
The odds of needing a firearm are low but when you need one, the stakes are incredibly high.
I talked with a guy getting ready to do a trip around the United States on a motorcycle. He told me that to legally carry his pistol, it had to be disassembled and separate from the ammunition. His thought on the subject was if I need it I’ll just have to say, “Stop, or I’ll put it together.”

Comments Off on Today was birthday for mominbox
We went to a local restaurant and we celebrated there including the cake and presents with the staff singing the traditional “happy birthday.” What was most interesting was what happened afterwards. A lady came over to the table and wished mominbox a happy birthday and asked that forbidden question. Mominbox answered the appropriate number of decades (she didn’t give me permission to post the number). The lady mentioned being an additional half a decade past that point and noted one observation of practicing writing her birthdate on checks. She had made it her habit and apparently did so without paying attention to the location of her notation. The clerk mentioned that she used the date 8/8/24* which was predated quite a bit. She had to correct the clerk and note that the date was for 19, not 2024.
*made up date, of course

It’s Halloween time and you count the bones on the skeleton to see if they have used the proper number of vertebrae in the model.
(Just for the record: I have actually placed a plastic skull on my desk… it is anatomically correct…and I have also put the proper names of the bones on papers either side of “George.”)
