Mayonnaise Draped

like so much snow.
nape of neck seared,
toes victim of wintry sting,
mayonnaise on everything.

This is why we have a "standing army" of course.

if we did not fear the Canadians and the Mexicans, why would we need one?

Standing army does not mean

Standing army does not mean just having military men laying around doing nothing.

A standing army has orders - like frisk all Canadians coming across the border. Military men in barracks with no orders, just training, is not a "standing army" within the meaning of the Constitution.

If you are a real stickler, all the military we have should be under the navy's command, which is allowed to be provided for and maintained, and that navy is not a "standing army". Because there are no orders to do anything. Standing armies are doing something.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

did any of that make sense to you?

you postulate that..
"having military men laying around doing nothing" is not a standing army? but only if they have nothing to do. except training....
right.
a standing navy makes good sense. I agree, they would have something to do.

I didn't postulate anything.

I didn't postulate anything. I know what "standing army" means as opposed to just an army.

It does not say "there will be no armies in times of peace". It says "there will be no standing armies" in times of peace.

You need to know what standing means. I do.

When you research that more and figure it out, I said - you could put them under command of the navy, and it would fit the constitution better and be the same.

Also - there was probably an attempt at just that at one point - so airships are air ships.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

does standing mean ready, willing and able?

complicated technical stuff like that really gets my head to spinning.
but what do I know? I am just a dumb Refrigeration guy.

Sorry, I wasn't trying to

Sorry, I wasn't trying to sound mean. Point of fact, I skipped over the words "standing army" as opposed to just "army" for a long time too, and never questioned what the qualifer meant.

I found the site below, and it started me on a trail to clearer insight into that.

FYI - although you can find this elsewhere online, I like this site:

A standing army is an active army. It has standing orders. It does something.

A navy with ships, even in times of peace, is still not an active navy - it isn't doing anything, it has no orders. It may exist, but it isn't invading people's boats, or searching cargo - because it has no orders.

Key difference between "army" and a "standing" army. A standing army is active. It has standing orders. The orders come from on high, not the citizens. It's the definition of a police state - same thing that happened to the founders, because the British was using the army to invade people's homes, etc.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

Canadian Whiskey & Literature. Twain in Montreal, Canada,1881.


"It makes one hope and believe that a day will come when, in the eye of the law, literary property will be as sacred as whiskey, or any other of the necessaries of life. In this age of ours, if you steal another man's label to advertise your own brand of whiskey with, you will he heavily fined and otherwise punished for violating that trademark; if you steal the whiskey without the trademark, you go to jail; but if you could prove that the whiskey was literature, you can steal them both, and the law wouldn't say a word. It grieves me to think how far more profound and reverent a respect the law would have for literature if a body could only get drunk on it."

All I did was write a new title.

It's called 'tweeking'.....
