Reflecting on quotes by Henry Glasow

Henry Glasow.....

"A good leader takes a little more than his share of the blame and a little less than his share of the credit."

HE'S TO BE RESPECTED

The ambitious general leads his men

With his well selected battle plan

Whatever happens in this horrific war

Will affect him to his mighty core

War to him is not a game

Defeat is his, he'll take the blame

And if awesome victory is to be the story

He credits his soldiers with all the glory

"One of the tests of leadership is the ability to recognize a problem before it becomes an emergency."

OBAMA, WHAT HAVE YOU DONE?

Where were you Mr. President

When the guns walked over the border?

Who was there when Benghazi fell?

Who gave the stand down order?

Why didn't you visit that chaotic site

As tens of thousands of children fled

Into our country from South America

What the hell was in your head?

Why is it so hard to call it terror

When violence erupts again and again?

Why do you side with Muslim extremists

And bury your head in the sand?

Who started the war on women?

Why should it even exist?

Why do you like to play the race card?

Is it something you can't resist?

It is to our detriment you apologise

It weakens a once powerful nation

You refuse to quell the spending

As we are ruined by more inflation

Why do you condone dependence

And penalize those who toil?

You chase what's left of our industry

To build on foreign soil

You alienate our allies

And cozy to those who harm us

Indoctrination rots our children's minds

And you are determined to disarm us

Go play another round of golf

Enjoy your expensive vacations

Eight years have been the death of us

A once proud, mighty nation

"Fear is the lengthened shadow of ignorance."

THE SHADOWS

What is hiding in the deep abyss?

There lives the great unknown

What lingers in the shadows?

Or behind that old gravestone?

When we meet head on our enemy

And give evil a mortal face

It becomes possible to overcome

The fear we had embraced

"Happy is the person who knows what to remember of the past, what to enjoy in the present, and what to plan for the future."

THE GOOD LIFE

We frolicked in the sunshine

As children, in the summertime

There are always those memories to replay

When we need to see a good day

We can live life to the fullest

And tomorrow we shall repeat it

There's no need to live with a monster

When sheer happiness can defeat it

And when it's time to go

As angels we will fly

Happy that we're just moving on

And just didn't up and die

Seasona in Life


SEASONS IN LIFE

I so enjoy the autumn air

The colors and peace that linger here

It's a time in life to reflect on things

I've passed the summers and springs

So bittersweet it seems to be

Maturity has captured me

Though this time is meant for relaxation

It leads to mortal contemplation

This season precedes the winter snow

The day will come with bitter cold

The final season snuck up on me

In the transition of life that's meant to be

Before I let the snow blanket my soul

I'll savor the autumn winds that blow

Remembering the spring when I was new

And summers under skies of blue

Lies

"A lie would have no sense unless the truth were felt dangerous." Alfred Adler

LIES

Hi, hi little lie

Hiding facts and treasonous acts

That's how politicians get by

They skirt around the facts

Will honesty appear no more

In a country based on election?

Is it laziness that make the people ignore

Things said that warrant rejection?

Hi, hi bigger lie

To hide mischievous actions

Crooked politicians getting by

Amid co-conspiratorial factions

Hi, hi the biggest lies

Are the ones we tell ourselves

Our downfall should be no surprise

On deception's carousel

The Lie Becomes the Foundation

"When it comes to controlling human beings there is no better instrument than lies. Because you see, humans live by beliefs. And beliefs can be manipulated." Michael Ende

THE LIE BECOMES THE FOUNDATION

Alas, I had been led astray

But it is I who must be blamed

Because I believe in what they say

Using only half my brain

Research is time consuming

Questions are so intrusive

I end up just assuming

Nothing said was inconclusive

I allow the manipulation

And expect all said is true

Without deliberation

That the facts might be askew

Liars become the leaders

What else should we expect?

We have come to accept the cheaters

Because the truth has no respect

The lies became the foundation

In this nation facing a crash

Truth needs consideration

And the lies deserve the trash

SAY IT AIN'T SO BUT SAY IT RIGHT

"Quite frankly, I think political correctness is the worst form of censorship. You are not allowed to speak your mind unless you're black, or unless you're a terrorist, or unless you're an Arab or a minority people. Then you can say what you like. But if you are a lot like us you are not supposed to say certain things." Wilber Smith

SAY IT AIN'T SO BUT SAY IT RIGHT

Don't you dare say Merry Christmas!

How offensive can you be?

Keep God out of our schools

In there you're on your own, you see

Giving the police a good description

After someone robbed you with a gun

Can't mention if he's black or white

He's just another one

We are in a war on women

Allah trumps our God

Race can't be a factor

It's becoming more than odd

No one is to wear a label

Though they still are what they are

Don't call them illegal aliens

Or, by God, you've gone too far

Your every word you must edit

It's getting very hard

For with every action in this world

Is playing some kind of card

But it always seems Caucasians

Are being labeled white

When you know they are really flesh tones

If you really want to get it right

They have included all our children

In this political correctness gloom

In school they do their ones and twos

In the gender neutral room

My quote on common sense.

"With common sense you acquire the appropriate knowledge needed to not only survive, but contribute."

My quotes 10/26/14

"I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary. The evil it does is permanent." -Mahatma Gandhi

So true, this quote. But we can never just stand by and watch the evil do their thing. Violence has become a way of life and sometimes it takes the violence brought on by good people to quell the ever advancing violence of the evil.

"Other things may change us, but we start and end with family." -Anthony Brandt

"We began as a very unique tribe. We went our separate ways, were influenced by separate things, and still have come together with like minds and joined spirit. I love my family!" Marian Beatty

"Happy families are all alike. Every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way." -Leo Tolstoy

"There are reasons that make a family tortured and separate them forever. Somehow those same reasons cement another family together in spite of it all." Marian Beatty 10/26/14
