PROCEEDING, fellow-citizens, to that qualification which the Constitution requires before my entrance on the charge again conferred on me, it is my duty to express the deep sense I entertain of this new proof of confidence from my fellow-citizens at large, and the zeal with which it inspires me so to conduct myself as may best satisfy their just expectations. 1 On taking this station on a former occasion I declared the principles on which I believed it my duty to administer the affairs of our Commonwealth. My conscience tells me I have on every occasion acted up to that declaration according to its obvious import and to the understanding of every candid mind. 2 In the transaction of your foreign affairs we have endeavored to cultivate the friendship of all nations, and especially of those with which we have the most important relations. We have done them justice on all occasions, favored where favor was lawful, and cherished mutual interests and intercourse on fair and equal terms. We are firmly convinced, and we act on that conviction, that with nations as with individuals our interests soundly calculated will ever be found inseparable from our moral duties, and history bears witness to the fact that a just nation is trusted on its word when recourse is had to armaments and wars to bridle others. 3 At home, fellow-citizens, you best know whether we have done well or ill. The suppression of unnecessary offices, of useless establishments and expenses, enabled us to discontinue our internal taxes. These, covering our land with officers and opening our doors to their intrusions, had already begun that process of domiciliary vexation which once entered is scarcely to be restrained from reaching successively every article of property and produce. If among these taxes some minor ones fell which had not been inconvenient, it was because their amount would not have paid the officers who collected them, and because, if they had any merit, the State authorities might adopt them instead of others less approved. 4 The remaining revenue on the consumption of foreign articles is paid chiefly by those who can afford to add foreign luxuries to domestic comforts, being collected on our seaboard and frontiers only, and incorporated with the transactions of our mercantile citizens, it may be the pleasure and the pride of an American to ask, What farmer, what mechanic, what laborer ever sees a taxgatherer of the United States? These contributions enable us to support the current expenses of the Government, to fulfill contracts with foreign nations, to extinguish the native right of soil within our limits, to extend those limits, and to apply such a surplus to our public debts as places at a short day their final redemption, and that redemption once effected the revenue thereby liberated may, by a just repartition of it among the States and a corresponding amendment of the Constitution, be applied in time of peace to rivers, canals, roads, arts, manufactures, education, and other great objects within each State. In time of war, if injustice by ourselves or others must sometimes produce war, increased as the same revenue will be by increased population and consumption, and aided by other resources reserved for that crisis, it may meet within the year all the expenses of the year without encroaching on the rights of future generations by burthening them with the debts of the past. War will then be but a suspension of useful works, and a return to a state of peace, a return to the progress of improvement. 5 I have said, fellow-citizens, that the income reserved had enabled us to extend our limits, but that extension may possibly pay for itself before we are called on, and in the meantime may keep down the accruing interest; in all events, it will replace the advances we shall have made. I know that the acquisition of Louisiana had been disapproved by some from a candid apprehension that the enlargement of our territory would
The Pie Essay
In the chapter “The Pie” from A Summer Life, by Gary Soto, a little boy steals a pie from a German Market. Gary wonders during his decisions, if God if guiding him through his choices. During this chapter Gary recreates his six-year-old guilty self by repetition of sins, religious diction, and light to dark imagery.
The most notable device used in “The Pie” is the repetition of sins. Gary feels as if he is the perfect child in his eyes, and demonstrates this…
the Spicy Jack Cheese Wedges as an appetizer for $6.99, and the O’Charley’s Famous Chicken Tenders served with fries as an entrée for $9.99. That is a good deal for a great meal. I spend less than $20 if I go to this lovely restaurant alone. When people are looking for a cheap good meal, this would be my first recommendation.
O’Charley’s is so good it doesn’t have a signature menu item besides the fresh hot rolls. Since there are so many delicious options I eat almost everything there. For example…

‘Storytelling’ by Pie Corbett
Storytelling and story-making
The idea of story-making was initially developed with my colleague, Mary Rose, through a
teacher research project based at the International Learning and Research Centre in South
Gloucestershire, funded by what was known as the DFES Innovations unit. We explored the use
of storytelling as a tool for helping children build up a bank of narrative patterns that they could
then call upon when…

Timballo di Capellini, Seven-Layer Pasta Pie. My dad finishes wiping remnants and juices from our oak cutting board before strolling over to address the problem. (Clean as you cook, he always preaches, so the delay does not strike me as a move of exasperation after a long day in the kitchen.) His hands join mine in a sticky blanket of buttered angel-hair pasta and tomato béchamel sauce, massaging and coaxing the last bit of pasta to congregate with the rest of the pie, which will be sheathed in parmesan…
Workers Get Smaller Slice of Bigger Pie
The topic covered in this article is globalization. The article talks about how many workers in Canada are in fear that globalization is a threat to their incomes and jobs. The latest to recognize this fear is the International Monetary Fund. The IMF believes that globalization and technological change have increased the size of the economic pie. This means that without globalization, our economy would not be as big as it is. To…
worked to remove the stump, it symbolized their bond and friendship that they could work together to accomplish anything. Shane is a good friend to Bob and teaches him about becoming a man, encouraging Bob not to let people like Chris nudge him into fighting. Both the book and the movie are consistent to explain that Shane is a hardworking man that is in need of a good home and family to help him feel safe and loved.
Three major differences between the movie and the book that stand out in my mind…
