This coin was our first minted coin during colonial times; 1787 to be exact. Do you see what it says? MIND YOUR BUSINESS. The flip side says WE ARE ONE. I wonder how many people actually believe that these days.
Our founders, and our founding documents are absolute brilliance.
The First Amendment declares these rights. It says Congress shall make NO law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people to PEACEABLY assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
The Second Amendment These are probably the 27 most concise words put together to explain our gun rights. “A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a Free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall NOT be infringed.” The founders made sure we have the RIGHT to defend ourselves; not from just people that mean us harm, but most assuredly so that we have the right to defend ourselves from an out of control government.
The Third Amendment No soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.
My point in this is that EVERYONE has the right to their point of view. They have the right to do what they would like to do, as long as it doesn’t interfere with someone else’s rights.
In these days of an innumerable number of “genders,” suddenly those of us that are simply living our lives and trying to be happy in our lives, are suddenly being pushed to use certain words to describe a person. People are now having to define their chosen “pronouns” that they want to be known as. OK … here’s the thing: YOUR rights do NOT have more power, more control than anyone else’s rights. Be happy in your life. Live the way you want. I couldn’t care less what you’re doing or who you’re doing it with. Because you have decided that you want to be known as a Pomeranian, does not mean that I have to call you one.
I think that colonial coin speaks volumes. Live your life. Be grateful that you live in such a great nation. Leave me to live my life. You live yours. Be happy with your decisions. And live.
It was a wise man who said, “Your right to swing your arms stops at the other man’s nose.”
