New Preamble to the Constitution

New preamble to the constitutionThis has been attributed to Lewis Napper, a Jackson, Mississippi computer programmer. He didn’t expect his essay — a tart 10-point list of “rights” Americans don’t have — to become an Internet legend. 


‘We the sensible people of the United States, in an attempt to help everyone get along, restore some semblance of justice, avoid more riots, keep our nation safe, promote positive behavior, and secure the blessings of debt-free liberty to ourselves and our great-great-great-grandchildren, hereby try one more time to ordain and establish some common sense guidelines for the terminally whiny, guilt ridden, delusional. We hold these truths to be self-evident: that a whole lot of people are confused by the Bill of Rights and are so dim they require a Bill of NON-Rights.’

ARTICLE I:
You do NOT have the right to a new car, big screen TV, or any other form of wealth. More power to you if you can legally acquire them, but no one is guaranteeing anything.

ARTICLE II:
You do NOT have the right to never be offended. This country is based on freedom, and that means freedom for everyone — not just you! You may leave the room, turn the channel, express a different opinion, etc. but the world is full of dummies, and probably always will be.

ARTICLE III:
You do NOT have the right to be free from harm. If you stick a screwdriver in your eye, learn to be more careful; do not expect the tool manufacturer to make you and all your relatives independently wealthy.

ARTICLE  IV:
You do NOT have the right to free food and housing. Americans are the most charitable people to be found, and will gladly help anyone in need, but we are quickly growing weary of subsidizing generation after generation of professional couch potatoes who achieve nothing more than the creation of another generation of professional couch potatoes.

ARTICLE V:
You do NOT have the right to free health care. That would be nice, but from the looks of public housing, we’re just not interested in public health care.

ARTICLE VI:
You do NOT have the right to physically harm other people. If you kidnap, rape, intentionally maim, or kill someone, don’t be surprised if the rest of us want to see you get the blue juice.

ARTICLE VII:
You do NOT have the right to the possessions of others. If you rob, cheat, or coerce away the goods or services of other citizens, don’t be surprised if the rest of us get together and lock you away in a place where you still won’t have the right to a big screen color TV or a life of leisure.

ARTICLE VIII:
You do NOT have the right to a job. All of us sure want you to have a job, and will gladly help you along in hard times, but we expect you to take advantage of the opportunities of education and vocational training laid before you to make yourself useful.

ARTICLE IX:
You do NOT have the right to happiness. Being an American means that you have the right to PURSUE happiness, which by the way, is a lot easier if you are unencumbered by an overabundance of idiotic laws created by those of you who were confused by the Bill of Rights.

ARTICLE X:
This is an English speaking country. We don’t care where you came from, English is our language. Learn it!

Lastly

ARTICLE  XI:
You do NOT have the right to change our country’s history or heritage. This country was founded on the belief in one true God. And yet, you are given the freedom to believe in any religion, any faith, or no faith at all; with no fear of persecution. The phrase IN GOD WE TRUST is part of our heritage and history, sorry if you are uncomfortable with it.

If you agree, share this with a friend. No, you don’t have to, and nothing tragic will befall you if you don’t. I just think it’s about time common sense is allowed to flourish. Sensible people of the United States must speak out because if you do not, who will?

Loiacono Literary Agency takes on Carl Watson’s mid-grade novel, Moonstones!

Loiacono Literary Agency takes on Carl Watson’s mid-grade novel, Moonstones!

When a carnival arrives in town, thirteen-year-old Pat and Chris, his fourteen-year-old uncle, go check it out. They have their fortunes told, visit a hypnotist, and become involved in a perplexing mystery in which they must save themselves, the carnival, and the town from the domination of an ancient, malevolent spirit.

This story, set in an imaginary town near the mountains of New Mexico, was mildly influenced by Bradbury’s novel, Something Wicked This Way Comes.

A fortune-teller warns the boys of danger because Pat’s birthday, June 21st, is not only occurring on the summer solstice but also a full moon. Chris’ birthday, December 21st, is on winter solstice, which gives them synchronistic powers. Giving them a pair of moonstones, she instructs them not to take them off until after the solstice for protection from the Bjshe, an evil spirit that dominates the carnival.

The boys share their experiences with Chris’s parents/Pat’s grandparents. Chris’s father, Dr. Mac, is a retired history professor. He researches the legends of Mexico and tells them that the Bjshe is described as an ancient spirit that existed to terrorize and dominate humans.

Chris and Pat don’t understand what ability they have that is desired by the Bjshe, but they have the perseverance and determination to confront adversity. With a strong reliance on each other, and with the help of the moonstones, they learn how knowledge can blunt the edge of fear and that a strong bond of friendship, love, and determination can defeat a lonely, evil spirit.

Carl Watson is the author of Kid Clay (W & B Publishers), the young adult, award-winning (Texas Authors Historical Fiction YA 2018) novel of his grandfather’s adventures of running away from home as a teen to become a real cowboy in the late 1800s, and soon-to-be-released Silent Journey (Red Chair Press, 2020), the story of a deaf boy’s dream of a stable home life and happiness after the death of his mother.

Watson is a former regional adviser for the North Texas Chapter of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators where he received the SCBWI Haynes Award. An outstanding educator, having earned his master degree in education administration from Texas Wesleyan University, he received a Fellowship from the Fort Worth National Bank to continue studies in creative writing. He has also organized children’s book writers’ conferences, taught creative writing in public schools, and published articles and stories in juvenile magazines. On top of all that, he’s volunteered on both national and local levels with the Boy Scouts of America and has traveled extensively on their behalf. https://carlwatsontx.com/
