the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.
He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their Public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.
Adam, I absolutely love the way you’re rolling out the text of the Declaration today, hour by hour. It’s very powerful. Thank you.
Whoever wrote this must be against Making Amerika Great Again. //

Perfect. An indictment against the entire GOP. The last sentence is quite striking in reference to voting rights.
@Cheryl from Maryland:
I’ve been thinking that it would take very little rewriting to turn the entire document into a point-by-point refutation of Trump and Trumpism. The DoI will be a useful template when it’s time to draw up the articles of impeachment.
Barrington Hall built by the son of the founder of Roswell, the city has an annual picnic which features blue grass music and bbq. Neighbors, son and dil have been attending since they started four years ago. We toured the house, and grounds. Had our lunch under a wonderful old oak tree and came home.
This morning I questioned whether or not I wanted to attend, but as Raven quoted below, these are the times that try ones soul If Barrington Hall can survive the Civil War, we go do this. Roswell’s civil war mansions survived because the Yankees needed a place to stay while preparing for the battle of Atlanta.
@SiubhanDuinne: When NPR tweeted this last year, which they’ve done for many years, the MAGA’s took it as an attack on Trump.
edited because my comment was similar to billinGlendale and he said it better.
Pretty to think so, but unlike the constitution it has no force of law
Someone (Father Drinan?) tried to base an impeachment article on the DI, too.
Most of the other members (all lawyers, I think) wouldn’t go alomg
@JPL: There aren’t many pre-Civil War buildings here in LA.
@?BillinGlendaleCA: lol For different reasons, I presume! Someone who had a campaign event that I attended house overlooks the Chattahoochee River. Using a metal detector, he has found several shells from the days the Yanks came calling.
@?BillinGlendaleCA: >they’re doing it again this year…
@sukabi: can’t edit borked link?

As one would expect, the MAGAt morons are again construing the tweeting of the Declaration of Independence as an attack on their beloved Dotard in Chief.
Fuck them. They are unworthy of this country, they are unworthy of the service that Cole, Ommnes, Raven, and all the other vets who post here rendered.
They’re doing it again this year.
(Trump: “I love the poorly-educated.”)
A reminder of our history — and the despot over there in England. Thank you. May the old F*rt enjoy lots of hamburger today.
