It Has Been A While…

My last post was a little over a year ago. I was not in a great place, in all aspects of my life, but things are better now, I’m glad to report.

I am working again, (in a field I had never considered), and am enjoying immensely! The not only employed but in a field, a company and a role that gives me he fog that had veiled my mind has lifted and things are sunny again, and I have a renewed self-belief and self-confidence.

Actually… “renewed” is probably the wrong word, as I am probably at the highest level of confidence in myself and my abilities, in the workplace, that I have ever been at, and as I have more to learn about the industry I am now part of and the role in which I find myself, I can only grow, professionally and personally.

My personal perspectives have changed some and mostly I haven’t felt the need to “push” a particular ideology. Right now that ideology is anarchy, and by that I mean the freedom and liberty from “leaders”, bureaucracies and layers of government, so that we may all live our own lives, as we see fit, so long as we do not interfere with the right of others to do the same. I also feel that more people are waking up to this kind of way of thinking, as well as becoming more spiritual. I do recognize, though, that it is a painfully slow process of evolution, and one that seems to have more steps backwards than forwards, to get to this point of existence for humanity, but I believe will will get there sometime in the future, (likely long after this physical body has become ancient dust).

I am going to try to get back to blogging and tweeting, but it will be without any regularity and with this more enlightened, (for want of a better word), point of perspective…

Liberty the Loser

Democracy is great, unless its your team is on the wrong side of the results. For those of us independents, or invested in a “3rd party”, (Libertarian, Green, etc.), we feel like Democrats do today – and Republicans did this time two years ago – every election.

In America we vote not only on our various traditional political positions, (President, State Governor, State Treasurer, etc.), but also on positions like City Commissioner, School Board, Common Pleas Judge and Dog Catcher, (okay, that last one is a lie, just for some levity!). We also get to vote on “Issues”, which tend to be either to change/repeal a law, make a change to the State Constitution or for local levies/taxes, which all-in-all is a little like being asked to choose between being stabbed or bludgeoned.

Liberty, of course, is always the loser.

I know An Old Lady Who Sat Idly By

There was an old lady who sat idly by.
I don’t know why she sat idly by – It’s agist to ask her why!

There was an old lady who ignored pleas for help,
The emails and phone calls and memoranda for help;
She ignored the pleas and sat idly by;
I don’t know why she sat idly by – It’s sexist to ask her why!

There was an old lady who helped blame a YouTube video;
How absurd to blame a YouTube video!.
She blamed the video to cover ignoring the pleas;
She ignored the pleas and sat idly by;
I don’t know why she sat idly by – It’s agist to ask her why!

There was an old lady who stood by coffins;
Fancy that to stand by coffins!
She stood by the coffins and blamed a video;
She blamed the video to cover ignoring the pleas;
She ignored the pleas and sat idly by;
I don’t know why she sat idly by – It’s sexist to ask her why!

There was an old lady called to the Senate;
To testify in front of the Senate?
She was called to the Senate beause she stood by coffins;
She stood by the coffins and blamed a video;
She blamed the video to cover ignoring the pleas;
She ignored the pleas and sat idly by;
I don’t know why she sat idly by – It’s agist to ask her why!

There was an old lady who had a fall and a clot.
A coincidental time to find a clot.
They found the clot, just before she was due at the Senate;
She was called to the Senate beause she stood by coffins;
She stood by the coffins and blamed a video;
She blamed the video to cover ignoring the pleas;
She ignored the pleas and sat idly by;
I don’t know why she sat idly by – It’s sexist to ask her why!

For one political party this is “par for the course”…
She’s likely their next POTUS Candidate, of course!

Little Hitlers

Little Hitlers in government,
Little Hitlers made of bureaucracy,
Little Hitlers, Little Hitlers,
Little Hitlers all the same.
There’s a boy one and a girl one
And a black one and a white one,
And they’re all made of bureaucracy
And they all act just the same.

The Little Hitlers in government
All went on the training course,
And became slaves to bureaucracy,
And they all came out the same.
There’s inspectors, D.M.V. clerks,
and Department executives;
And they all become Little Hitlers
And they all act just the same.

The bigwigs play on the golf course.
And drink their martini dry.
And they all have pretty children.
And the children go to school.
And the children go to summer camp,
And then to the university,
And they all get brainwashed
And they come out all the same.

And the boys go into government
And marry and raise a family.
And they all become Little Hitlers
And they all act just the same.
There’s a boy one and a girl one
And a black one and a white one,
And they’re all made of bureaucracy
And they all act just the same.

Oligarchy In The USA

I am an antichrist!
I am an oligarchist!
Yes, I know what I want
And I know how to get it.
I wanna destroy liberty!

‘Cause I wanna be oligarchy.
Make you my dogsbody!

Oligarchy for the USA!
It’s been here some time and maybe
It’ll stay a long time.
Ensure freedom’s decline.
Your future dream
Is a Survivor scene.

‘Cause I love to see oligarchy!
In the D.C.!

So many ways to get what I want.
I use the best.
I use the rest.
I use the N.Y.T.
I use oligarchy!

‘Cause I wanna be oligarchy!
It’s the only way to be.

We love the USDA!
Oh! We love the DOJ!
Oh! We love the NSA!
You thought this was USA?!
No, just another country;
Another socialist tendancy.

I wanna be oligarchy!
Oh! I wanna be oligarchy!
Know what I mean?
Oh! I wanna be oligarchist!
I get pissed!
Destroy!

Abraham Lincoln Speech in Lewiston IL on August 17th 1858

“The Declaration of Independence was formed by the representatives of American liberty from thirteen States of the Confederacy, twelve of which were slaveholding communities. We need not discuss the way or the reason of their becoming slave-holding communities. It is sufficient for our purpose that all of them greatly deplored the evil and that they placed a provision in the Constitution which they supposed would gradually remove the disease by cutting off its source. This was the abolition of the slave trade. So general was the conviction, the public determination, to abolish the African slave trade, that the provision which I have referred to as being placed in the Constitution declared that it should not be abolished prior to the year 1808. A constitutional provision was necessary to prevent the people, through Congress, from putting a stop to the traffic immediately at the close of the war.

Now if slavery had been a good thing, would the Fathers of the Republic have taken a step calculated to diminish its beneficent influences among themselves, and snatch the boon wholly from their posterity? These communities, by their representatives in old Independence Hall, said to the whole world of men: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.’ This was their majestic interpretation of the economy of the Universe. This was their lofty, and wise, and noble understanding of the justice of the Creator to his creatures. Yes, gentlemen, to all his creatures, to the whole great family of man. In their enlightened belief, nothing stamped with the Divine image and likeness was sent into the world to be trodden on and degraded, and imbruted by its fellows.

They grasped not only the whole race of man then living, but they reached forward and seized upon the farthest posterity. They erected a beacon to guide their children, and their children’s children, and the countless myriads who should inhabit the earth in other ages. Wise statesmen as they were, they knew the tendency of prosperity to breed tyrants, and so they established these great self-evident truths, that when in the distant future some man, some faction, some interest, should set up the doctrine that none but rich men, or none but white men, or none but Anglo-Saxon white men, were entitled to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, their posterity might look up again to the Declaration of Independence and take courage to renew the battle which their fathers began, so that truth and justice and mercy and all the humane and Christian virtues might not be extinguished from the land; so that no man would hereafter dare to limit and circumscribe the great principles on which the temple of liberty was being built.

Now, my countrymen, if you have been taught doctrines conflicting with the great landmarks of the Declaration of Independence; if you have listened to suggestions which would take away from its grandeur and mutilate the fair symmetry of its proportions; if you have been inclined to believe that all men are not created equal in those inalienable rights enumerated by our chart of liberty, let me entreat you to come back. Return to the fountain whose waters spring close by the blood of the Revolution.

Think nothing of me — take no thought for the political fate of any man whomsoever — but come back to the truths that are in the Declaration of Independence. You may do anything with me you choose, if you will but heed these sacred principles. You may not only defeat me for the Senate, but you may take me and put me to death. While pretending no indifference to earthly honors, I do claim to be actuated in this contest by something higher than an anxiety for office. I charge you to drop every paltry and insignificant thought for any man’s success. It is nothing; I am nothing; Judge Douglas is nothing. But do not destroy that immortal emblem of Humanity — the Declaration of American Independence.”

Dear America, I Miss You

Amen…

Fuzzy Logic

Dear America,

I look at you sometimes, lately, and I wonder who you are.  Remember when God, family, flag and country mattered to you?  Remember when you were a melting pot, welcoming legal immigrants into your expansive embrace?  Remember when that meant that people who chose, of their own free will, to come here had to assimilate into their chosen adopted country?  When such immigrants were happy, even proud, to adopt the language and customs of their new, chosen home (or at least to encourage their children to do so)?  Remember when your name inspired pride and unity among your own people and, equally importantly, when that same name inspired (albeit sometimes grudging) respect (and, sometimes, deterrent fear) among the peoples of hostile lands?  Remember when your presidents weren’t longing for a “post-American” world?

I do.  I remember it well, and I miss it, I miss you.  I miss sleeping…
