 "A metaphysician is one who, when you remark that twice two makes four, demands to know what you mean by twice, what by two, what by makes, and what by four. For asking such questions metaphysicians are supported in oriental luxury in the universities, and respected as educated and intelligent men."

How To Get Back The Google Cache Function

How to get back the Google Cache function.  I've seen some other ways described, such as a "preview" function that I don't see and arrows that aren't there...suffice it to say, the one below does work.


(Per Google's Guide)

You can also retrieve Google’s cached version of a page via the cache: search operator. For example, [ will show Google’s cached version of Flight Diary in which Hamish Reid documents what’s involved in learning how to fly.

On the cached version of a page, Google will highlight terms in your query that appear after the cache: search operator. For example, in the snapshot of the page, Google highlights the terms “fly” and “diary” in response to the query [ fly diary ].

Use the Wayback Machine when you want to visit a version of a web page that is older than Google’s cached version.

Security VII

"... By calling attention to a well-regulated militia for the security of the Nation, and the right of each citizen to keep and bear arms, our founding fathers recognized the essentially civilian nature of our economy. Although it is extremely unlikely that the fear of governmental tyranny, which gave rise to the 2nd amendment, will ever be a major danger to our Nation, the amendment still remains an important declaration of our basic military-civilian relationship, in which every citizen must be ready to participate in the defense of his country. For that reason I believe the 2nd Amendment will always be important."

Habitual II

"As one reads history, not in the expurgated editions written for schoolboys and passmen, but in the original authorities of each time, one is absolutely sickened, not by the crimes that the wicked have committed, but by the punishments that the good have inflicted; and a community is infinitely more brutalised by the habitual employment of punishment than it is by the occasional occurrence of crime."

Nullification II

"The jury possesses a general veto power and may acquit when it has no sympathy for the Government’s case, no matter how overwhelming the evidence of guilt.

"It [government] covers the surface of society with a network of small complicated rules, minute and uniform, through which the most original minds and the most energetic characters cannot penetrate, to rise above the crowd. The will of man is not shattered, but softened, bent, guided; men are seldom forced by it to act, but they are constantly restrained from acting: such a power does not destroy, but it prevents existence; it does not tyrannize, but it compresses, extinguishes, and stupefies a people, till each nation is reduced to be nothing better than a flock of timid and industrious animals, of which the government is the shepherd."

Death Squads At Work

North Carolina man charged with 50 counts of animal cruelty

Yesterday, Burke County Animal Control seized 105 dogs from the house of Larry Steverson Buff, 58, of Morganton, N.C.

According to the Hickory Daily Record, today Buff was charged with 50 misdemeanor counts of animal cruelty.

According to investigators, some of the dogs were suffering from medical conditions which warrants them to be humanely euthanized.

Full article, Examiner, May 8, 2012.

Once again government, instead of sending in kids who have gotten into trouble and need to do some community service, instead of rallying the community to get in there and fix the place up, instead of encouraging a fundraiser so there would be funds for veterinary care...instead of doing the right thing, instead of doing something *constructive*, the iron jackboot of government comes down after letting things reach a crisis level, then takes those innocent dogs to concentration camps where most will receive The Needle Of Death.

Where there is government...there is violence and tragedy.

From the first days of their lives they will be under the healthy influence of Communist children's nurseries and schools. There they will grow up to be real Communists."

The drafters of the Constitution clearly intended [the right of trial by jury] to protect the accused from oppression by the Government. Singer v. United States, 380 U.S. 24, 31, 85 S. Ct. 783, 788, 13 L. Ed. 2d 630 (1965). ... Part of this protection is embodied in the concept of jury nullification: “In criminal cases, a jury is entitled to acquit the defendant because it has no sympathy for the government’s position.” United States v. Wilson, 629 F.2d 439, 443 (6th Cir. 1980). The Founding Fathers knew that, absent jury nullification, judicial tyranny not only was a possibility, but was a reality in the colonial experience. Although we may view ourselves as living in more civilized times, there is obviously no reason to believe the need for this protection has been eliminated. Judicial and prosecutorial excesses still occur, and Congress is not yet an infallible body incapable of making tyrannical laws.
