We Shall Soon Want Bread

"I am for a government rigorously frugal and simple. Were we directed from Washington when to sow, when to reap, we should soon want bread."
~Thomas Jefferson

These are prophesied times.

HR 2749 will give power to Washington to micromanage our food producers, something the Constitution doesn't give them power to do. And we all know how well our Congress does at managing things.

A brief lesson in American civics: the U.S. Constitution all inclusively lists the things Congress may regulate and legislate. Food production is not one of them.

The constitution has become an afterthought.

Yes, and the Communist Manifesto and The Audacity of Hope have been pushed to the front of the line.

It sure is audacious to hope as of now. Y'all are right on the money as usual!

Son3 said...

Thank you, Johann!

Hope has never seemed more audacious, 'cept during the Revolution.

"I wait for the Lord, my soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope." ~Psalm 130:5

"I wait for the Lord, my soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope. It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. The Lord is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him. The Lord is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him. It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the Lord." ~Lamentations 1:21-26
