POST-GAZETTE, APRIL 12, 2013 JAMES MADISON DATE OF BIRTH: March 16, 1751 DATE OF DEATH: June 28, 1836 PLACE OF BIRTH: Port Conway, Virginia Colony PLACE OF DEATH: Orange, VA WIFE: Dolley PRESIDENT: 1809-1817 From the state of Virginia, here's another contribution, He is known as the father of our Constitution; Kept the most complete record, worked days and nights, He also helped with our great Bill of Rights. This fourth C.E.O, named James Madison, Was Secretary of State under Tom Jefferson; A strict constructionist he served out two terms, It was during his time that D.C. was burned. Young DoUey Paine, a Virginia beauty, Married John Todd as her Quaker duty; It was a good marriage and they really tried, But three years later he just up and died. Supporting a young child at that time was no fun, But she soon caught the eye of James Madison; Once again this fair lady was not known to falter, As Jim led his beauty right up to the altar. She soon blossomed forth in an elegant way, To become one of the best loved ladies of her day; As Jefferson's hostess she mixed with the cream, And then as First Lady she reigned socially supreme. At the Inaugural Ball after Madison was crowned, She wore a plumed satin headdress and was velvety gowned; The White House was furnished with the finest of drapes, And then it was burned by those mad British apes. At the height of the fire she delivered her all, Scooped Washington's picture right off the wall; And then by what must have been supreme intention, She salvaged Jim's notes on the Constitutional Convention. The Octagon was available while they rebuilt "The House," And so it was offered to Dolley and her spouse; Spent her retirement years near Lafayette Park, Needless to say she stayed home after dark.

If Boston makes it to the national televi- sion news that day, it'll be for the Boston Marathon and not the midnight rides of Paul Revere, William Dawes, and Samuel Prescott and the resistance, on the morn- ing of April 19, 1775, of the colonist at Concord and Lex- ington to an over-reaching central government treading on the rights of the people. Or perhaps, some com- mentator -- surely at least Fox News will make the con- nection -- will observe that history is repeating itself. Let's hope someone notes that while the colonists had remonstrated in speeches and in print and had even engaged in destruction of property (the Boston Tea Party) in their quest to end unjust taxation, it was the of Defiance, and Not of redcoats marching on them to seize their guns that forced the Americans to take up those guns against a government that, through oppression of the king's sub- jects, had lost its legitimacy. Let's hope that someone with a national audience points out that "the shot heard round the world" was fired to squash the government's latest gun con- trol initiative. You know the rest. In the books you have read How the British regulars fired and fled, -- How the farmers gave them ball for ball, From behind each fence and farmyard-wall, Chasing the red-coats down the lane, Then crossing the fields to emerge again Under the trees at the turn of the road, And only pausing to fire and load. -- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow While I cannot be in Bos- Fear ton (or Concord or Lexington) for Patriots' Day, I do plan to join 2,000 patriots on the Boston Common, at the Parkman Bandstand, on Sat- urday, April 13 th, from 1:00 to 3:00 pm for the Greater Boston Tea Party Rally. The keynote speaker at this important event will be Grover Norquist, who will be joined by Fox News contribu- tor Dr. Keith Ablow and an impressive list of inspiring speakers. I hope to see you there. A huge turnout on the historic Boston Common will show that the conservative move- ment is not only alive and well, it is ratcheting up its efforts to do whatever is necessary to slash govern- ment spending, reduce the federal debt and "unburden the next generation". At this rally conservative groups throughout the Common- wealth - all the major Tea Parties, gun owners, Liber- tarians, Republicans and Independents -- are joining together to synergistically support and promote a sin- gular project.
