The New Priorities

"Whenever justice is uncertain and police spying and terror are at work, human beings fall into isolation, which of course, is the aim and purpose of the dictator state since it is based on the greatest possible accumulation of depotentiated units." Carl G. Jung (1875-1961) from the book THE UNDISCOVERED SELF (1957)

THE NEW PRIORITIES

Peek around the corner

Hide behind the curtain

Say nothing they can use against you

It's the NSA, I'm certain

Turn your pockets inside out

Report every cent as you earn it

Just so the IRS can pass it on

And the government can burn it

And then while they are at it

Target conservative groups

Deny them their deductions

How low can government stoop?

The land is vast and barren

Being put to very good use

By cattleman who feed us well

With the cattle they produce

Making sure to get their dollars

The B.L.M. endeavors to collect

Sending dozens of armed feds swarming

Is there an agenda to suspect?

Allow illegal immigration to continue

Border crossings raise our fears

Who is too busy commandeering

An American rancher's steers?

Water is at a premium

The California farmers felt

But the E.P.A. denies them

They must protect the smelt

And use our hard earned dollars

For environmentalist groups to funnel

Putting shrimp on treadmills

Giving Florida turtles a brand new tunnel

They see our ire growing

And it's only just begun

No wonder they are adamant

To confiscate our guns

Don't they work for We the People

As promised in our constitution?

Is the administration the pimp

In all this government prostitution?

Quote about government priorities.

"It concerns me, the battles our government has been choosing these days. More and more they seem against We the People instead of those we should fear."

M. Beatty

Range War

"To test for whether one is living in a police state is that those who are charged with enforcing the law are allowed to break the laws with impunity." Jim Roland Founder of the constitutional society

RANGE WAR

In they came, armed for battle

From a fellow American they take his cattle

Though his family's livestock grazed this land forever

The government was compelled to this endeavor

Day by day lawbreakers surge

Over the border into welfare they merge

Yet what battle does our government choose?

With an American cattleman, now I'm confused!

He works, pays taxes, and helps feed this nation

Has employs more cowboys each generation

Asks not for welfare to feed his own

He's doing well with all he has ever known

What brought this government wrath thrown down

Snipers perched, armed feds  all around

Where his cattle has grazed for decades here

Is it really for the tortoise the government fears?

I suspect a hidden agenda within

This battle against these American men

Is this a preview of what's to come?

Government agents converging, brandishing guns?

What should be handled within a court

Turned into a brief range war

It may be, and I hope I'm misguided

Just the beginning our civilization divided

A Quote on Tolerance

"Be tolerant of matters of the heart. Question boldly what matters in your mind. Be extremely intolerant of mindless acts that affect your life negatively." Marian Beatty 4/15/14

Time For Some Intolerance

"Tolerance is a very dull virtue. It is boring. Unlike love, it has always been bad press. It is negative. It merely means putting up with people, being able to stand things." E.M.

TIME FOR SOME INTOLERANCE

Since when is every wrong acceptable?

Why are sins and anti-social deeds ok.?

Too many folks are un- respectable

Let it be said whatever they say

It is about so much incivility

That has become tolerable today

Condoning irresponsibility

What's been said, whatever they say

Protesting crowds are a distraction

When property is damaged in the wake

We tolerate more lawless infractions

As we have put so much at stake

Why do criminals have more rights

Than the soldiers in the field?

Is our future looking bright

As legalized drugs are being revealed?

Why will we tolerate

That oversized soda laws are passed

While states are lining up to embrace

The lawfulness of smoking grass?

Worst of all we have our government

Riddled with ineptitude and scandal

It's time to stand and be intolerant

Of what put our country into shambles

Intolerance

Gilbert K. Chesterson had the right idea..."Tolerance is the virtue of the man without conviction."

INTOLERANCE

Go with the flow

Say you don't know

Chillin' with your time

'Cause nothin's on your mind

Don't want to rock the boat

Just believing hope will float

Although shocked at things that people do

You just trust it won't affect you

Your intolerance is so overdue

A buried head is not a virtue

Extreme Measures

"Global sustainability requires the deliberate quest of poverty, reduced resource consumption, and set levels of mortality control" Maurice King

EXTREME MEASURES

It's an excuse, I say

Though based on a bit of fact

As human inhabitation puts

Our world on a negative track

Just as climate changes are gradual

Science can continue to explore

While human consumption of energy ebbs

Not the drastic measures put at our door

Changes that will put us in poverty

As costs continue to rise

Regulated surcharges for energy

Manipulation in disguise

Our consumption will be limited

To what they feel is for our own good

Sources of energy from fossil fuels

Will be banned in our neighborhood

But the most shocking cures hidden in their books

Will be that of population control

With abortions being mandated

And the death panels sitting in charge of old souls

When extreme measures overtake good sense

And make life a burden to bear

When with failure to trust science we focus on calamity

Is life worth living scared?
