Jul 3: Our Feuding Fathers and the origins of “You lie!!!”

They look so nice in their wigs and nifty little outfits, but the verbal combat at the beginning makes things look kind of tame now…

Consider this:

Thomas Paine denounced George Washington in an open letter as “treacherous in private friendship…and a hypocrite in public life.”  He even wondered aloud whether Washington was “an apostate or an imposter; whether you have abandoned good principles, or whether you ever had any.”  Wall Street Journal, June 26/27, 2010

Nice.

We’ll have a walk down memory lane about just how rough things were back then….

Are you stoked that we are still independent???  If you were alive then, would you have:

  • supported the revolution or deferred to authority?
  • been willing to die for it?
  • advocated use of force?
  • put your family at risk for it?

Thomas Jefferson made slip in Declaration, Talking Points Memo

And Don Leka, writer and self-described recovering lawyer, on “Our Independent Judiciary and Other Myths.”
