To teach and inspire

"Uninspired teachers breed uninspired minds." M. Beatty

"Try not. Do or do not." -Yoda

"The secret of my influence has always been that it remained secret." -Salvador Dali

"Some look to those who have things worth sharing as being an intruder in their thoughts. It is better to share knowledge secretly, without fanfare with those adverse to learning." Marian  Beatty

"It's often said there's no footprints too small to not make their mark on this world." -Unknown

"At times it was the innocence of a child that caused me to act. It is their well-being that make us become warriors and leaders." M. Beatty


My Mentor

My Mentor

You have been relevant in what you write.

You inspired me to do the same.

Without your valuable years of insight

Life would have just been another game



"Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing."


An idle mind can't be condoned

An Idle pen in a hand of stone

Those of us how know should dare

To pen the words we need to share

An idle life with years of knowing

Lying dormant, uninspired, and rarely glowing

So much to be done with so little will

So many empty promises left to fulfill

Too many children with no one to lead them

Craving hope for which they beg and plead then

So few of those who know will care

While silent minds leave treasures there

Never Too Late To Learn


"An investment in knowledge pays the best interest."


Back in time when I was young and new

Learning seemed to be an afterthought

Too many other things that I wanted to do

Caused me lacking  knowledge I should have let be taught

My bank account of skills were lacking

As were investments in my political knowledge

It was my own initiative lagging

Survival in life doesn't need years in college

Too late in life I craved just knowing

Anything and everything my mind could digest

Had I had this will as I was growing

So many contributions I would have saved to invest

Learning is an ongoing lifetime burden

Better done with young, fresh minds

But before my last act, my final curtain

I found it not too late to enhance my mind

"In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act." -George Orwell

"Obama has made lies such a universal norm that the those who expose the truth become the targets of those deceived" M. Beatty

Run Silent Run Deep

Right now I think the Republicans should make like a submarine and run silent and deep. Once they have their target in clear view, their torpedoes loaded, and all hands present and ready for duty, then fire one, two, three...sink the BSS Obama.



"In our time political speech and writing are largely the defense of the indefensible."

George Orwell


Self serving lies and rhetoric

More cover-ups to condone

Their fairy tales are specific

They are liars to the bone

Agendas with a purpose

To bring our economy down

They are smiling sweetly on the surface

While running our ship aground

Chaos is their cover

Crisis keeps them in control

It is a devious style to govern

But Satan owns their souls
