In ruling against President Obama’s “recess appointments” that contradicts 150 years of practice by Republican and Democratic Administrations; Federal Circuit Court Judges; David B. Sentelle, Karen LeCraft Henderson and Thomas B. Griffith must have missed;

 

Abraham Lincoln’s 13th Amendment to the Constitution!

 

But why should we be surprised?

 

Frederick Douglass gave us the answer on September 25 1883, as to why Republican Legislators would be so unrelenting on President Obama!

    

“Though the colored man is no longer subject to barter and sale, he is surrounded by an adverse settlement which fetters all his movements. In his downward course he meets with no resistance, but his course upward is resented and resisted at every step of his progress.

             

If he comes in ignorance, rags and wretchedness he conforms to the popular belief of his character, and in that character he is welcome; but if he shall come as a gentleman, a scholar and a statesman, he is hailed as a contradiction to the national faith concerning his race, and his coming is resented as impudence.” [Frederick Douglass, September 25 1883]

Dedicated To The Families Of The

Sandy Hook Tragedy

 

 

In the clutch of pains that will follow you

From your head down to your sole,

You’ll wonder what life holds’ for you?

In the darkness of your world

 

Despite the pangs do not complain

Even when you pine,

And though at times you’ll feel disdain

Know, you’re wholly Thine

 

For, beyond this world of wrath and tears

Looms, but the Heavens’ above,

With freedom from pains or fears

And the bounty of your Father’s love

 

So, in the midst of your circumstance

In the blessed evening shade,

Live by faith and not by chance

Strong in heart and unafraid!

It is not what happens to us in life that defines who we are, but how well we rise, after we fall!
