News radio 930 WBA. And yeah. The fact he has yet floor dead Americans what I'm -- I protest -- -- -- because the guys out for a walk when I decide they don't kill some Americans. What difference at this point does it make. If you've got health -- already. Then you can keep your plan if you're satisfied with a. Our lady and I don't know I mean -- Good. People know and it's live it's local. It's Tom how early. Away at a white women that news radio yeah. Hello. Thank you -- -- this gently -- a few minutes ago and it is. That's that is encouraging that the so many of you are interested in what I've been doing today. Which has been looking at. So the very important events that are taking place in American history. Clustered round the first four days of July. For example July 1 second third 1863 the battle of Gettysburg. I went through what happened on day three of the battle this day 1863. Roughly 3:30 to 4 o'clock if you wanna go back and listen to a dead WB Ian dot com via audio vault you check that out. Am -- the hear of the declaration of independence that's why we have Baltimore the fourth of July. I'm old school I guess I call them Independence Day because that's at all. Independence Day and I have about previously. Go on through the the opening part. Of the declaration of independence. Game you can check what I have said again at WB in dotcom once we get the show up on line. If -- you know people who need to hear this if they were never taught the declaration of independence -- -- today if they would never thought about the battle of Gettysburg. Why it was so important and out without that battle we would not probably have had a country as weak note today or at least as we -- it over the past 100 plus years. And we have reached that point. In the declaration of independence where wanna remind you bet. Every person who signed. This declaration. Of rebellion. Against the king of Great Britain know. Bet he was putting his balls in a vice. Bet if the British caught them. The vice would be squeezed like Joseph Pesci did in your -- note to. -- we'd all books. All right. It was reveal serious what these guys would do. They weren't just all talk. They were action. And it's very important that you recognize that fact. Meet today it would take for granted. They signed the declaration of independence we won the war and we want our freedom. At the time these guys were in uncharted. Territory. These guys were in waters that had not been sailed in before. And they didn't know what the outcome was going to be. Except. That if they lost. Or if they were captured. Bay would be -- they would be shot. Any military execution. They would be hand and it wouldn't be the kind of hanging where they try the long dropped to break the -- It would be the kind of hanging where we take -- twenty minutes just ass out. Okay. Now this is the these are. The charges made our founding fathers against the king of Great Britain this is why they said. The time has come for us to change governments because -- government aid worker -- anymore. And they're talking about the king here the king of Great Britain. Every time they used the word heat they're talking about the king of Great Britain anger ago he has refused. His assent. Two loss. The most wholesome and necessary. For the public good. Translation. We told him what we want out of government in our land that he has told us no. He has forbidden his governors. To pass laws of immediate and pressing importance. Unless suspended in the operation. Till his assent should be -- And when so suspended he has utterly neglected to attempt to that. We think of governors as. Governors that are elected by we the people like Kuerten Cuomo. That's not what a colonial governor once it was a political appointee -- represented at eight delegate of the case. And those governors were basically between a rock and a hard place they were living in the colonies but their master was it like that. And basically what the colonists are saying here news. Any time we need anything for law and order in our country or some kind of fairness. It ain't happening. 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. Are right in festival vaulted 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. A -- like early IRS. So. You have to understand folks today hop on a jet six hours you can be in London. Back then if you caught the right wind it would take you a month. They get from New York or Philadelphia or Boston in two London. In the -- are right it was not like it is today. So if you had. Okay this is the Genesis of taxation without representation. -- it was hard for the colonists. To get to England to have a voice in parliament. That's what they're saying here. He is the result. -- Are sedatives houses repeatedly. For opposing with manly arm -- his invasions on the right of the people. He has refused for a long time. After such -- solutions to cause others to be elected whereby the legislative powers. Incapable of annihilation. Have returned to the people at large for their exercise the state remaining in the meantime exposed to all dangers of invasion from without. And convulsions. Within. What he's saying here -- Thomas Jefferson and all the signers of the declaration of independence is. Eight state of legislative. Chaos existed. Because that's with the king wanted. I guess what might say he wanted to fundamentally. Change the colonies. Moving up. He has endeavor to prevent the population. Of these states. For that purpose obstructing the laws for naturalization of foreigners. Refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither and raising the conditions of new appropriations. Of Lance. -- Believe it or not folks there's a time when we really really really really really needed people to come in to this country. To settle this country according to European as standards of civilization. And McCain did everything he could to keep people from coming to these. Areas the colonies what -- now call states. Because let's face it the more people the more power. He has obstructed the administration of justice by refusing his assent to laws for establishing. Judiciary powers that speaks for itself. He has made judges dependent on his will alone for the tenure of their offices. And the amount and payment of their salaries. Translation. How can you have a fair justice system. When the judge is basically a slave of the king. And serve -- is William and caprice answer yet can't. He has erected a multitude of new offices and sent hither swarms. Of officers to harass our people. And eat out there substance. He has kept among us in times of peace standing armies without the consent of our legislatures. He has affected to render the military. In -- and and and superior. To the civil power. What they're saying here is essentially the king has created an atmosphere of martial law. And that power came from the barrel of a gun. And big gun was held by. Mercenaries of the king. He's the king of Great Britain. Has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution. And other knowledge by our laws giving his assent to their acts of pretended. Legislation. Fourth quarter in large bodies of our troops of congress. They just said the guy guys from the army of the your house and -- -- failure what you got to -- For protecting them by a mock trial. From punishment for any murders which they should commit on the inhabitants. Of these states. That's a bit controversial. For cutting off our trade with all parts of the world. Remember that's how we generated income that's not a colonies. Kept our economy afloat export. Import for imposing taxes on us without our consent. Hey how can the colonies give consent the taxes when they could even get to Great Britain to have a voice in parliament. Because of the distance and time involved. For depriving us in many cases of the benefits of trial by jury. For transporting us beyond c.s to be tried for pretended offenses. For abolishing the free system of English laws. Any neighboring province. Establishing Berrian and arbitrary government and enlarging its boundaries so as to render it. Once an example and fit instrument for introducing these same absolute roll into these colonies. In other words. Making sure that creeping totalitarianism. Spread from other places not the thirteen colonies but from other places into the United States the -- of Great Britain wanted. -- to have a foothold in the Western Hemisphere. Take away our charters abolishing most valuable -- altering fundamentally the forms of our government. Suspending our own legislatures declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases. He has abdicated government here. By declaring us out of his protection and waging war against us he has plundered our. Our seas ravaged our coasts burnt our towns and destroyed the lives of our people. He is at this time. Transporting large armies of foreign mercenaries. To complete the works of death desolation and tyranny. Already begun with circumstances of cruelty and perfidy scarcely. Paralleled in the most barbarous ages and totally. Unworthy the head of a civilized nation. This is a bit of dramatic hyperbole I'm afraid by mr. Jefferson. He is constrained our fellow citizens taken captive on the high seas. To bear arms against their country. To become executioners of their friends and -- Or to fall themselves by their hands in other words you're on the -- you're on a ship. A man of war says hey who's from the colonies I am well you either join us to kill your friends or we kill you. He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us and has endeavored to bring on the evidence of our frontiers. The merciless Indian savages whose known rule of where prayer is as undistinguished destruction of all. Ages sexes and conditions. I think that well given that just won't first let's get the traffic here is Allan Harris. And AccuWeather for a tonight -- expect to -- spots early received widespread rain but -- states spotty shower partly cloudy and cooler tonight theoretical 58. Tomorrow it'll be partly sunny refreshing nice 74 Saturday -- -- a -- sunshine 7873. Degrees at news radio 930 WB the end. Alright gang I'm almost done. -- we're gonna wrap this bad boy up here in just a few minutes but. Basically it would have done so far. Is and explain to you. But our founding fathers did not lightly break off ties with the king of Great Britain are right. What they have made the argument they've they have they've been telling the world here in this document the declaration of independence. How we were being ball and it by the king of Great Britain. And that we had a right and a duty to overthrow the government even though the government had been with us since the very. -- of the colonies the very first and settlements that it was time we needed hope and change. We needed a new government our old. And then the whole list your. Some of the huge issues of the day wherein the founding fathers said look. This guy is out to give us this guy is a -- He's engaging and all kinds of acts we don't have a voice in her own colonies because he is the ultimate authority. We are in Boston Philadelphia were in Savannah he is in London is flatly we can pick up a fault because phones have been invented yet. Now. I've got to wrap this up after the 630 news brake. Body. Explaining to you. How the founding fathers told the people of the world we tried for peace and it didn't work. So don't go anywhere by the way if you wanna comment -- open up the telephone lines. I want you to tell me what Independence Day means to you and why it matters. 8030930. -- -- 3180616. WBE. Now this brings back memories of the -- -- on our part which is like Ringo can answer a total answer Santana concert in the top -- answer all role in the launch. And that so. We're going through the declaration of independence and that by the -- thank you very very much for all the positive feedback on this. Believe me the easiest thing I could do today. Would be the melody and and just do some brain dead topic and give them a lot of years but I didn't wanna do it. So all. Paula do that every -- just the work but. We're talking about the declaration of independence. How important it was. And I'm trying to emphasize the fact that. These guys. Put everything on the line everything on the line. They live identify it they have all topic of Great Britain as a despicable. They have said -- It takes an awful lot for people wanna change governments but you have pushed us we're we have no choice we have to do -- And I read through the list of charges against the case. Now we get to the end. And this news. More -- year. In every stage. Of these impressions. We have petition for redress in the most humble terms. Our repeated petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. Up prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may be which may define a tyrant is unfit. To be the ruler of a free people. And what they're saying here is look. We have -- screw. We have humble way that's the case that this stops trying guests air instead of back at all he's simply piled on even more strong. This guy you took the lead us. Door have we've been wanting in attentions to our British brother. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by bear legislature. To extend and on the warrant to -- jurisdiction. Over house. We have reminded them of the circumstances. Of our immigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity. And we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these -- patients. Which would inevitably. Interrupt our connections and correspondents. -- Two have been depth. To the voice of justice. And of -- and when that we must therefore acquiesce. In the necessity. Which denounces. Our separation. And hold them. As we hold the rest of mankind enemies in war in peace friends. So here is the money each. They did basically said not only is the hit a tyrannical bald head. But. Our cousins our friends our Brothers. The people we know in Britain. Don't -- along with what -- bald headed Kate is doing we keep on telling our British friends over and over hey. Where BM screwed here. The king. Is acting like a tyrant to his here in the colonies. You guys come on we grew up in the same culture we have the same values we have the same ideals what you stand. For us what you speak up for us. And. They found out that even though they had a common culture. And a common language. That. Dear friends in England were just as deaf. To their legitimate complaints. As was the case. And just like any other people. Whether they be Germans Russians -- Japanese. In war will be enemies in peace will be friends. But this too is a remarkable paragraph in the declaration of independence. Because it's one thing to say to the -- -- -- We don't like Richard -- and we won independents. But they -- basically. In this paragraph thrown down the gauntlet. To their relatives in English. They basically said hey we try we want it would list view is our allies you have turned a deaf ear to what we've said so guess what. You are our enemy to. Wow. And the final paragraph. Week they're four. The representatives. Of the United States of America by the way. Important the word united is not capitalized the word states. Use. We therefore the representative of the United States of America. In general congress assembled. Appealing to the supreme judge of the world for the rectitude. Of our intentions. Dual. In the name. And by authority of the good people of these colonies. Solemnly. Publish and a player. That the this is this is their -- Hash tag that we are a separate country now. This was their FaceBook post. We. Solemnly publish and declare that these united colonies are. And of rights ought to be free. And independent states. That -- are absolved. From all allegiance to the British crown. And that all political connection between them and the state of Great Britain. Is it ought to be totally dissolved. And that is free and independent states. Day meeting we. Have full power to Levy war conclude peace. Contract alliances establish commerce and do all other acts and things which independent states may of right do. And -- for the support of this declaration. With eight -- reliance. On the protector of divine Providence. We mutually pledge to each dollar. Now lives. Our fortunes. And our sacred. Honor. Folks. -- Various. Declaration. Of independence. Tuesday masterpiece. Of pros. And a masterpiece by the way of summations. And when they talk about. Their lives. Their fortunes and their honor. I need to get back to something that I mentioned earlier. These men were considered traitors of the worst kind by decaying. And by most of the citizens of Great Britain. When they pledged their lives. They do. Bet if they were apprehended by the British or by agents of the case they would be -- Our fortunes. Folks in the old days. When you were trader. And you were caught not only would they execute you but they would. You know we kind of do the same thing now don't we with property forfeiture. They would take all of you or Monday anything you all they would take it in the name of the crown. In fact those of you who've seen Henry the fifth at Delaware park Shakespeare at Delaware park. Henry the fourth Henry the -- father. That is one of the reasons. The rebellion started against Richard the second his predecessor. Because when John -- ought die John McGraw was Henry reports dad. King Richard will -- and ripped off the -- public. That caused the deposition of Richard the second the ascension of Henry the fourth. And eventually the birth of an ascension to the throne of Henry the -- And our sacred honor their lives their fortunes and our sacred honor. What I say they Benedict Arnold to you work comes to mind. Of course. Trader. So these men all honorable man of great reputation in the colonies do. That if they lost they lost every. They would be killed. Executed. All of their money would be taken their families would be screwed. And they would lose their honor that all of them would be known as Benedict Arnold's against the crown. -- -- -- Those -- you work somewhat familiar with the attempt to blow up parliament Wade Barrett went. So this document was the work of very very Smart and very very courageous man. Now I am dot. -- by comments on the declaration of independence. And I want yours just what what Independence Day means to you. And whether this stuff matters and whether you see any connection. Between our founding fathers saying we're not gonna live under a tyrant. And the direction of this country today. 8030930. Do you think that today's politicians would have this kind of its global. Gigantic to -- -- I don't. I made up a new word here is market Williams fell on WB EM -- mark. I come Tom I've been listening you were mortars like can you remember. There you go a long time old friend of mine well independence. To me means to -- right I don't agree with everything whoever it. But that's immediate independence. You have rights -- everything and it's locked you in total -- and that's what makes this country phenomenal. While the show today. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Well you're a true American mark because I've. You know that's not the way most people think that unfortunately if you disagree with the I must assume that you are. Weigh on the other side unfortunately. Many people who were way on the other side when they hear somebody like me. Or Hannity or savage or rush instead of say well aren't they've got to right this -- they wanna say -- -- I don't like it I'll just change the channel. And all let's make a sponsor's boycott him. You're a truly -- tolerant individual. -- that's terrific course now we shouldn't thank you for the call we we ought to confuse that with freedom of speech. And so many people -- And the freedom of speech argument ladies in -- And give your recent example Donald Sterling. And the Los Angeles Clippers. So many people wrongly said -- doesn't have freedom of speech is at that guaranteed by the constitution. The answer is. Freedom of speech in our constitution means you will not face governmental. Rapper cautions for what use there. But what you are part of the elite group of people. A club if you will the club has the right or sanction you because you wore a member of their club and have agreed to bear bylaws. But club and say you got to sell that and but the government didn't press charges against sterling. Many people do not understand the concept of freedom of speech. Or carry the day today they just they don't get. And I can't explain it any better. That freedom of speech. We talk about means. Big government. It's not supposed to go after you because you make political declarations. That does not mean that people can't independently say. I won't listen to you it does not mean that the NBA. Has no right to say sterling. You have to sell the -- Remember it was the NBA that that it it was not. The government that there is a big difference there. Like I gotta get into The Dixie Chicks argument for a few years ago. All right 803 old I'm thirty Independence Day. -- declaration of independence a despair and power of your time. Going over it trying to explain it as best as I can. So that is my serious stuff. -- I think I'm gonna allow myself the luxury of something brain dead in addition to the serious stuff in the final segment of the show. And that is. Fireworks. Should you be able to legally buy possess and blow them up. Yes -- now. Every year they do the demonstration with something blowing up to show the force of fireworks. Should fireworks be legalized in New York's there. Yes -- now. It is Independence Day eve I'm news radio 930 WB EN. Let me give the phone number which is something you really have the chance to do that much today at 8030930. It's 8030930. Start 930 on the cell phone. 180616. WB yet you -- thrilled at thirty starlet 3180616. WBBM. Is that bad again. I do wonder if an Okinawa they -- TV ads advocating the American -- Some specific apiece from bright -- says about black and Asian violence in Rochester new York and the Asian community wants to know why the police aren't taking it seriously. Trying to post a -- Now my -- said Rochester it doesn't identify which Rochester there's a lot like gestures in the world. Well you met a story was cited in the Democrat and chronicle I would presume we're talking about Rochester New York. If they will be going very tired real soon. And that makes -- sent -- -- thrilled -- thirty let's go to. Jeff is in the or let's go to north buffalo for that tailor your WB amount. It's I'm -- It's on the morning. Due for doing this this is something that I think we've really launched in our society as. People like yourself -- get on the air and do things like that so. Whether I agree with everything you hear about -- job. Like land before it. Second was it what you declaration of independence really means to me is it's the reason that I left the Republican Party and registered by a libertarian. And that candidate. It reminded me of the fact that we can't be tied to Al with its two party system and that they -- there -- -- -- -- -- thought about the other day and a local into a tool on but don't collision with third party out there I think that people just need to go across the world and Reid consultants say you know. It's Democrat -- Republican single ladies. Well I know the answer for myself. The establishment Republican Party I hit it solid broken record but it's dead today. And whether people go with libertarian or whether a conservative or -- party is formed. I think that's the way to go. Because there. I don't know how many years people wanna be suckered into this idea that you did -- -- as a Republican Party from within because -- it what what are we supposed to believe that's actually going to happen. Well he will like you are correct. And it's what our order that later became more -- now do lineup. Well a -- firefighters hate the idea of legalizing fireworks especially during drought periods this is not one of them but -- -- -- thank you very much 8030 -- thirty -- thirty. 180616. WB Jeff in buffalo Jeff wants to about fireworks Jeff. I don't want that day I get the fire workers you because not only argued endangering yourself you're endangering others. So having -- I think the York's state should sell them. Have regulations. And make like a fireworks safety course. You have to have our current map like he just said that there's a drought season you know have rules and restrictions crying that. But still so like -- some of that money come an -- and you know hopefully everything it's gonna be okay. So what would you -- me or what do you buy if you break the law by the -- -- the fireworks thing I think is a great metaphor for the failure of the war on drugs technically we have a war on fireworks right I mean there illegal yet my -- sounds like Beirut. Great. Some of the best fireworks display that I've ever humor personal fireworks display I personally never about fireworks and Tomas. But I'm within the neighborhoods where. I mean a player or two or better than if you went down in the river. Yeah well -- I'm not allowed sharp objects or fireworks. I can't be trusted with the -- I am I'm an emotional player I think you love very much or legalized fireworks here's Mike -- -- -- -- WB and hello. Oh yes. -- -- here. I enjoy do. To education and industry. Constitutional court tomorrow that. No it was the declaration of independence the constitution I'd still be dog that would take a long time. Well as well out there I loved. You -- -- shoes principles of liberty also work a work process should be forward now. But in regards to the fireworks. Their party out. Bogus call back in the early eighties and I thought well Irish are examples -- and I had a some bottle rockets with whispers all it and report. And slow the and then. I got them out. With a bum leg. And had a string grabs a 41 side to the other -- -- And and -- just try to we Warren. You know I'll help or as late early twenties. And he'd just think it's not gonna happen you. Yeah. All right well again thank you very much -- skin graphs on the leg don't solid -- lot of fun personally it wouldn't be worth it to me. I'll all leave it to the professionals like Joseph beamer and John Sherman -- do a great job today folks thank you very much and I do hope that you give some consideration to what our Independence Day really means tomorrow. Two words. No yourself I. It.
