Welcome to the Club

WELCOME TO THE CLUB

When the brightest of light cannot break through the darkness

When you feel like you have bled to death with the tears you have shed

If there becomes no way to ignite your one vital spark

And thoughts of ways to end it keep spinning in your head

When the road you travel seems to be forever under construction

And friends have dwindled away because you are pleasant no more

If you contemplate instead of progress, pure and complete destruction

Then you cringe if someone dares to lay a knock upon your door

You shy away from mail, leaving all the bills sealed tight

Every sound is shrill and hurts your brain

There is something within you that just isn't right

Perhaps you have joined the ranks of the insane

Welcome to the club, we are all in here to invite you

In various stages of insanity we survive

Just looking for some mentor capable to reunite you

With the will we once had to stay alive

Liberty quotes

"The virtue of justice consists in moderation, as regulated by wisdom." Aristotle

"When there comes a time when punishment in the form of justice comes at every turn because of the cries of outrage by extreme factions...and retaliation exceeds moderation, that means that the government is tightening the reins of the free spirit of We the People. Liberty requires the wisdom of our representatives to rule in moderation, within reason, and not regulate the people back into the chains of tyranny." M. Beatty

Imposing One's Fears

"Those who want the government to regulate matters of the mind and spirit are like men who are so afraid of being murdered that they commit suicide to avoid assassination." Harry S. Truman

IMPOSING ONE'S FEARS

As some yards need a fence

Some rivers need a dam

Sometimes life is too intense

With intrusive demands

Some people need a list

And at least a guiding hand

The insecure insist

On an oppressive plan

Some thrive on regulations

For fears they perceive

From the co-population

Who may be killers and thieves

They want as many laws

As it takes to feel safe

And let government claws

Invade everyone's space

As these insecure folks

Impose their insecurity on another

And their inability to cope

Affects their sisters and brothers

Their fear creates chains

That restrains a whole nation

They go to great pains

To impose laws and regulations

Can it be with such fear

They would wish themselves dead

Rather than go another year

Knowing there are pitfalls ahead?

History

Winston Churchill said..."Study history, study history. In history lies all the secrets of statecraft."

"One can choose to wing it,  go through life through trial and error. Yes, making mistakes can be a good education, but knowing your history and learning from another's past mistakes can leave you a much clearer blueprint for life with fewer do-overs and painful lessons."

Marian Beatty

George Santayana said "Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it."

FORWARD PROGRESS

Take a walk through life

Meander if you so choose

Do it without a map

Wrong turns are progress you lose

Perhaps before you begin your journey

And at stops along the way

Review a bit of history

Avoid mistakes that make you pay

Forward progress is most desired

And can be handled appropriately

If you take the time to review

A bit of history

We have a couple lost generations who have no idea of history...even their own national history...so we wonder where national pride went. Where are the patriots? The new patriots that can speak of national pride? America has been engineered socially to the point where the only thinking going on is what information the government provides. Could this have something to do with the high drop out rates in schools? (Just a thought) James Dixon

JFK..."History is a relentless master. It has no present, only the past rushing into the future. To try to hold fast is to be swept aside."

THE SEA OF KNOWLEDGE

The tide comes in with bits of knowledge

Gathered from the deep sea of history

It comes from the hard knocks college

And is an education that is free

Go to that beach and collect

The stonesj and shells of history past

The gems in this sand that you collect

Can put success into your grasp

"They can change what history is in the books, they can hide history from our children by limiting what oppressors wish to negate.

All I can say is talk to your children, teach them all the history you learned before oppressors began to alter it to fit their own agendas. Point out that truth about our history can be found in old books and on the Internet.

Maybe, if we arm ourselves with the truth from the past along with our patriotism and guns,  we can thwart the damage being done by the re-arrival of the tyrants."

Quotes about individuality

"If there comes a time when individuals fail to exist, when all the people think as one...the world as we know it will be done. Every civilization deserves its freethinkers. Every country can only thrive with the presence of rebels."

M. M. Beatty

The Liberals (left wing) are heavy duty in to COLLECTIVISM which takes away individuality so whenever you hear that word, RUN! But they will rarely use the word...it’s subtle.

Sharon Krogman

Free thinking seems to be taboo least we say or do something to offend some fringe group.

"I do think we can keep our souls and values and also our individuality and at the same time play the game at least until the game is so oppressive that revolt becomes necessary."

James Dixon

The Individual Emerges

"Unlike a drop of water which loses its identity when it joins the ocean, man does not lose his being in the society for which he lives. Man's life is independent. He is born not for the development of society alone, but for the development of his self." B.R. Ambedkar

AND THE INDIVIDUAL EMERGES

Born into a world where seeds are sown

Unceremoniously mixed with the soil

Beauty and sustenance are eventually grown

But then also come the weeds to spoil

Raindrops falling into the sea

So seamlessly they merge within the waves

They lose their individuality

Within the depths of Neptune's grave

But people are much different, you see

Like oil in the puddle we stand alone

As we  struggle with our personalities

No matter by whom we are chaperoned

As seeds are continuously spread and sown

And random raindrops miss the sea

The random rain meet seeds wind blown

And join to form flowers of humanity

The individual emerges among

The stately nature in its background

Each of us go one by one

Our own ideas to expound upon

Born To Be Free

"A desire to resist oppression is implanted in the nature of man." Tacitus

BORN TO BE FREE

Inborn is the will to reject it

Chains and shackles, brutal oppression

It is my pride, you should respect it

Free to fly, it's my obsession

No color am I to be tainted

No respect am I to be denied

No creed of mine shall be stained

No vilifying me is justified

I'll twist your boot from upon my neck

Drop you unceremoniously if you try to stone me

You'll rue the day we ever met

If you, a tyrant, attempt to own me
