History of The One Dollar Bill, Haym Solomon and Number 13

Do your children know this? – Do their teachers? – Do you? Who Was Haym Solomon? Read this fascinating history of the $1 bill all the way to the bottom to know about Haym Solomon. You may be in for quite a surprise!

On the rear of the One Dollar bill, you’ll see two circles. Together, they comprise the Great Seal of the United States. The First Continental Congress requested that Benjamin Franklin and a group of men come up with a Seal. It took them four years to accomplish this task and another two years to get it approved. If you look at the left-hand circle, you’ll see a Pyramid. Notice the face is lighted, and the western side is dark. This country was just beginning. We hadn’t begun to explore the west or decide what we could do for Western Civilization. The Pyramid is uncapped, again signifying that we weren’t even close to being finished. Inside the Capstone you have the all-seeing eye, an ancient symbol for divinity. It was Franklin’s belief that one man couldn’t do it alone, but a group of men, with the help of God, could do anything. “IN GOD WE TRUST” is on this currency. The Latin above the pyramid, ANNUIT COEPTIS, means, “God has favored our undertaking.” The Latin below the pyramid, NOVUS ORDO SECLORUM, means, “a new order has begun.” At the base of the pyramid is the Roman numeral for 1776. (MDCCLXXVI) If you look at the right-hand circle, and check it carefully, you’ll learn that it’s on every National Cemetery in the United States. It’s also on the Parade of Flags Walkway at the Bushnell, Florida National Cemetery, and is the centerpiece of most heroes’ monuments. Slightly modified, it’s the seal of the President of the United States, and it’s always visible whenever he speaks, yet very few people know what the symbols mean. The Bald Eagle was selected as a symbol for victory for two reasons: First, he isn’t afraid of a storm; he’s strong, and he’s smart enough to soar above it. Secondly, he wears no material crown. We had just broken from the King of England. Also, notice the shield is unsupported. This country can now stand on its own. At the top of the shield there’s a white bar signifying congress, a unifying factor. We were coming together as one nation. In the Eagle’s beak you read, “E PLURIBUS UNUM” meaning, “from many – one.” Above the Eagle, we have the thirteen stars, representing the thirteen original colonies, and any clouds of misunderstanding rolling away. Again, we were coming together as one. Notice what the Eagle holds in his talons. He holds an olive branch and arrows. This country wants peace, but we will never be afraid to fight to preserve peace. The Eagle always wants to face the olive branch, but in time of war, his gaze turns toward the arrows. An (untrue) old-fashioned belief says that the number 13 is an unlucky number which is almost a worldwide belief. You’ll almost never see a room numbered 13, or any hotels or motels with a 13th floor. But think about this: America, which relies on God (not a number) to direct and lead, boldly chose: 13 original colonies, 13 signers of the Declaration of Independence , 13 stripes on our flag, 13 steps on the pyramid, 13 letters in “Annuit Coeptis,” 13 letters in “E Pluribus Unum,” 13 stars above the eagle, 13 bars on that shield, 13 leaves on the olive branch, 13 fruits, and if you look closely, 13 arrows. And finally, notice the arrangement of the 13 stars in the right-hand circle. You’ll see that they are arranged as a Star of David. This was ordered by George Washington who, when he asked Haym Solomon, a wealthy Philadelphia Jew, what he would like as a personal reward for his services to the Continental Army. Solomon said he wanted nothing for himself, but he would like something for his people. The Star of David was the result. Few people know it was Solomon who saved the Army through his financial contributions … then died a pauper. Haym Solomon gave $25 million to save the Continental Army, money that was sorely needed to help realize America’s and our freedom and independence from England. Therein lies America’s Judeo-Christian beginning. Most American children do NOT know any of this. They aren’t taught because their history teachers do NOT know this. (They were not taught!) On America’s Freedom: Too many veterans gave up too much to let the meaning fade. Many veterans came home to an America that did not care. Too many veterans never came home at all. They served, they died for you and for me. I hope you will share this page with many so they can learn about the UNITED STATES DOLLAR BILL, and what it stands for. America is at a critical juncture. Let’s do whatever we can to save her while never, ever forgetting: It is God in whom we put our trust!

You live in the mountains, and a mountain lion scares you?

Where do these people in Big Bend come from? Getting all a twitter because there’s a mountain lion in the area! For Fuck’s Sake People, We Live In The Wilderness! As much as you would like to make it a little safe city like place, wildlife happens. These people claim to love the land, hug trees, hate loggers, compost their own shit, hate modern conveniences, hate law enforcement, want to live like the caveman did. But they need to be warned by their computer, i-phone, i-pad or whatever the newest communication device is about a wildlife threat. And you should see the whining and wailing online if the internet gets a bit slow. Some even warned to beware of a llama running loose, that walked calmly through my yard today. I am so looking forward to getting out of here, it’s not the same place we moved to 22 years ago.

Don’t Do It

When you give up 5 years of your life to save the life of another, twice, do not expect anything but hate from that family and “friends”. It truly is No Good Deed Goes Unpunished. And personally, I don’t like my wife being punished for her weakness of helping the helpless.

Burney station to open after 6-year closure

You cannot believe how many panties are in a twist because our area is going to have 24 hour coverage from the Shasta County Sheriff’s Office (SCSO). It doesn’t mean we will get a deputy down here any quicker, as they hate our little town anyway, but just the thought of more law enforcement has driven the lawless into the vapors. The biggest benefit is the station will be open for normal operations to relieve us from the 120 mile round trip to Redding, cuts it in half. The Fleaheads are mostly moving out because the law has changed for their freeloading lifestyle of raping the land, stealing water and anything else not nailed down and growing “Medical Marijuana” for profit by selling it across state lines. The locals are pissed for most of the same reasons because the Fleaheads were easily manipulated, they thought, but they are the ones that ended up catering to them at the expense of their loved ones, all for the illegal dollar that comes from dealing drugs. Many friendships were damaged beyond repair by the lying, cheating, hard drug use and just plain character change. Needless to say, I welcome the idea of a deputy at least being available between the hours of  3 and 7am. But that’s just me, I like the security of being legal and not having to look over my shoulder. With that said, here’s the short article from The Intermountain News.

By Det. KEITH SHARP
Shasta County Sheriff’s Office
Burney Station
I am guessing most everyone has heard about the
Shasta County Board of Supervisors recent approval to
hire additional employees for the Sheriff’s Office.
I have had people ask me what that will actually mean
for the Intermountain area and its citizens. This article
will address the impact that the additional personnel will
have to the Burney Station and to
its eastern Shasta County residents.
First, the Burney Station will
be open once again during regular
business hours, staffed with 2
Public Safety Service Officers.
This means services that were
once available to the citizens prior
to the closing of the office will
be accessible again, no longer
requiring people to go to Redding
for certain assistance.
Although the courtroom will
remain closed until further notice, the re-opening of the
station will give the Intermountain citizens services that
have been dearly missed for 6 years.
Additionally, 2 deputy positions have been granted to
the Burney Station.
After these positions are filled, patrol operations in
the Intermountain area will return to 24-hour coverage.
Due to recent changes in the law, coupled with
criminal’s knowledge that patrol deputies aren’t on
duty between 3 a.m. and 7 a.m., property crimes have
become rampant.
Having 24-hour patrol coverage will help to prevent
these crimes from happening.
After the 2009 budget cuts, deputies were required
to stay closer to the higher call volume areas to reduce
response times.
The additional deputies will help lower response
times and help the outlying areas see regular patrols in
higher frequency.
Although there has yet to be a specific date set for the
re-opening of the station, the Sheriff’s Office has dedicated
resources to the hiring and training of the personnel
required to get these positions filled.
Once the deputy positions are filled, positions such
as a School Resource Officer and/or a Community
Resource Officer will be re-explored.
In response to the Board of Supervisors approval,
Sheriff Tom Bosenko says, “I am very excited about the
advancements we are making to improve our staffing
levels and get additional support to our deputies on the
streets. My staff and I always have your best interests
in mind and are always working to make improvements where we can.”

Now, just to let you see one piece of shit that came for the Pot Growing, to work for a local grower, and ended up involved in murder after a full day and night of smoking meth, I give you “Bubblegum.”

It’s just weather, it’s been here before

It’s just weather, it’s all been done before and will repeat again. Not Global Warming, not Climate Change, just normal weather. Here’s a glimpse of two Februaries, 2015 and 1934.

Are The Good Times Over?

Wow, 22 degrees this morning 74 this afternoon. Looks like this pattern will stick around for awhile with no precip in sight. We’ve been in a historical wet period for the last 500 years and it looks like the good times may be over. We are so screwed.
