Ok, here's the deal.  You've been granted the opportunity to go back and witness one historical event.  Doesn't matter what it is, you get to sit back and watch.  However, you don't get to change or alter anything that happened in said event.

So what would you choose and why?

Jesus in High School. Bible doesn't cover that. He goes from a baby to a grown man with a beard. I need to know.

Kennedy assassination. I'm not even going to watch the car coming, I'm just going to be fixed on the grassy knoll.

I'd like to witness all the other maneuvers Heimlich settled on before he went with the one we all use now. You know there was a punch to the stomach, intense shaking, some kind of headlock, maybe trying to scare the person's airway open. Bloodletting? idk, but THAT trial and error must have been hysterical.

I would go back to October 15, 1981. The day i fell 40'and lost my hearing.  I would have stayed home....would have called my girl freind and told her to not take that ride to Texarkana that also took her life in a car wreck the same morning that i fell.  Would have listened to music all day since that is what i miss the most about the loss of my hearing.

I'd like to take a portable generator, a television, dvd player, and a stack of news shows back to the days of the writing of the American Constitution.  I guarantee you that the bill of rights as well as the functions of government would have been far more defined to identify what is meant by the general welfare (the health of the country), and civil liberties.

Humm, judgment is mine saith the Lord.  So who is anyone to judge? If this is what the founding fathers meant with the constitution then they screwed up by saying, All men are created equal with certain unalienable rights, to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.  

  Which kinda makes me mad too  Since that includes, hypocrites, racists, and all the others that feel they are better than others, wouldn't you agree.

I'll give you a couple from the father of our country:

"All possess alike liberty of conscience and immunities of citizenship.  It is now no more that toleration is spoken of, as if it was by the indulgence of one class of people that another enjoyed the exercise of their inherent natural rights.  For happily the government of the United states, which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance, requires only that they who live under it's protection should demean themselves as good Citizens..."

"When he needed to hire a carpenter and a bricklayer at Mount Vernon, he stated that 'if they are good workmen,' they could be 'Mahomentans, Jews, or Christian of any sect, or they may be atheists."
Ref: Chernow, Ron: "Washington--a Life", pg. 132, Penguin Press, New York, 2010

The quote from Cuddles came from a letter to the First brigade of the Mass. Militia.

There are so many pieces of history i'd like to go back and witness it is hard to narrow it down to one, and being an history geek I could spend hour up on hour visiting and witnessing history.

 I like how we all like to pretend that what the Founding Father's said over 200 years ago is still completely applicable today.  Yes, its sometimes worth figuring out what the meant and how they felt about things, but the beauty of the document is that its living, and left open to modern interpretation.

Virtues are never out-dated.  The fact that so many ignore such is the reason this country is in the sad state that it is today.  Unfortunately, a tactic used by people of specific interests is to use a quote taken completely out of context as to their intent in using such a quote.  There's also a difference in what some deem "constitutional intent" and what is personal belief.  I chose to use George Washington quotes as he was a very pious man, but understood that attributed to the historical examples of the relation between church and state in Europe, that the protections of religious freedom must be established principle; even atheism.

Found the quote.  I would like to present the content in it's entirety so the quote can be regarded in better context.  This is his personal belief.....not a constitutional premice.  The irony is that if you take a look at society today and compare it to the words he's written, the greatest offenders are obvious, IMHO.

TO THE OFFICERS OF THE FIRST BRIGADE OF THE THIRD DIVISION OF THE MILITIA OF MASSACHUSETTS.
11 October, 1798

GENTLEMEN,
     I have received from Major-General Hull and Brigadier-General Walker your unanimous address from Lexington, animated with a martial spirit, and expressed with a military dignity becoming your character and the memorable plains on which it was adopted.
     While our country remains untainted with the principles and manners which are now producing desolation in so many parts of the world; while she continues sincere, and incapable of insidious and impious policy, we shall have the strongest reson to rejoice in the local destination assigned us by Providence.  but should the people of America once become capable of that deep simulation towards one another, and towards foriegn nations, which assumes the language of justice and moderation while it is practising iniquity and extravagance, and displays in the most captivating manner the charming pictures of candor, frankness, and sincerity, while it is rioting raping and insolence, this country will be the most miserable habitation in the world; because we have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion.  Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net.  Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people.  It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
     An address from the officers commanding two thousand eight hundred men, consisting of such substantial citizens as are able and willing at their own expense completely to arm and clothe themselves in handsome uniforms, does honor to that division of the militia which has done so much to honor to its country.
     Oaths in this country are as yet universally considered as sacred obligations.  That which you have taken and so solemnly repeated on that venerable spot, is an ample pledge of your sincerity and devotion to your country and its government.
John Adams.

 Virtues and general principles  I think are fine (such as protection of all religious freedom).  However,  I think to try to use random Founding Father quotes to try to decide whether or not they would believe a individual health care mandate is constitutional is ridiculous.  They wouldn't even know what the heck that term means.
#55 | 968 days ago

I have no idea which historical event I would like to witness. I guess being there in person to hear MLK's "I have a dream" speech would top my list. It's always put a lump in my throat. Other than that, maybe just anything that there's a lot of controversy or questions surrounding that haven't been answered...just knowing. That would be cool.

And as a side note, I just have to say - I'm pretty damn glad I don't live in 1692...

 I like the idea of November 22, 1963, because I too want to know the truth about that crazy situation. However my day to witness, the one I'd want to see unfold would be June 6, 1944.

What a truly amazing feat to witness and the awe of the size of the force. Then I'd want to be whisked away to Berlin to see Hitler's face to moment he realized he fortified the wrong coast.

 I really liked grade-school field trips to revolutionary war forts in New England, where they reenacted it all, so seeing the real thing sounds interesting.

 I like the idea of November 22, 1963, because I too want to know the truth about that crazy situation. However my day to witness, the one I'd want to see unfold would be June 6, 1944.

What a truly amazing feat to witness and the awe of the size of the force. Then I'd want to be whisked away to Berlin to see Hitler's face to moment he realized he fortified the wrong coast. 
 Oh my gosh, hi welcome back.

I would like to have witness the destruction of  Hilter, The many people that he killed, Innocent Jews that were killed, just because  they were different. That is one piece of history that I wii  not  be able to grasp .
