Our Mockingbird Column this month, while it seems localized to Rhea County, is in reality a truthful precept for the entire nation. Higher learning has had its big day living off the fruits of the "uneducated" population while its forces are now revealed as a perpetual tyranny and combine of busybodies and snoops. On this Independence Day, let us declare ourselves Independent of the judicial system and let the United States Taxpayer cry out to Almighty God, in Jesus' High and Holy Name, for redress of grievances. I urge every reader of this column to read the entire Declaration of Independence and see what these men penned for our learning and posterity.
And I ask my perpetual annual question: Where are 56 rich men who would sign such a document today? The artificial riches of today's wealthy will be held in account in the Great and Terrible Day of the Lord when they face our Lawgiver, our Judge and our King. Isaiah 33:22.

Penny Clarke's excellent letter regarding what she called "Christian Rights," is in reality a demand to return to the Bill of Rights and the Tenn. Declaration of Rights. Our Constitution has been bastardized by leaders shacking up with agencies which have no regard for the Bill of Rights, and whose lawyers have reaped a huge treasury of legal fees from 42 USC 1988, the so-called "Civil Rights Act." This Act sounded so benevolent, but in reality, it cast a dark shadow over the Bill of Rights and like Goliath, ran up and down the valley with their new "equality," using the 1st, 5th and 14th Amendment to cause the God-fearing people of Tennessee to shut up and pay the bills. The effect of this sedition is that the Court wants us to ask for their permission to do those things that Almighty God gave us at the beginning, after we finance their jaded legal system with tax dollars!! No more. The God of David lives.
Only one county in Tennessee voted against the Ten Commandments-Bill of Rights Resolution which I carried to Tennessee County Commissions. Just last year, the entire Legislature passed a law authorizing the posting of our foundational documents, including the Ten Commandments. Its introductory Resolution, HR 107, also passed unanimously, is replete with Tennessee history, including the recognition of the Lord's Day. We are not alone.
The Taxpayer just forked over whopping millions to build a new high school. I observed that we paid for the paint to inscribe humanistic sayings down the halls but I saw no Scripture. This must not be allowed to continue, while we labor under an expensive atheistic tyranny. The common people want God's Law and prayer and Bible reading in all public places. Since we have the Law backing us up, I expect copies of the Americanism documents - the Ten Commandments, the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights - to go up in all our schools. If this is not done, then let those of us who have no vested interest in promoting humanism be granted a 52% property tax deduction when we go to pay our taxes.
The Tennessee Court of Appeals has a copy of the Ten Commandments in the light fixture over their heads. Why should we have to ask permission of any Court for the Right to do what God gave us the liberty to do? It is enough.
For God and Country,
