The push and undue force has begun, in the US, to quell: thoughts of what we were [a land where freedom was well known and respected when our lives were given to its increase], notions of who we are [when any Veteran is turned away from a memorial dedicated to time or place they served] or to the ideals for which we have believed [rendered but a shell and husk of an archetype- a standard of freedom and tolerance being sought today to be surgically removed and ostracized]. When, during the Bush years, we started borrowing from a known enemy (to pay for a war against those who never attacked us-Iraq)… China, and the same practices prevail under another Leader we call our own, how can we not expect their influence or the influence of the world system to attempt and change our way of life? False would be the thought that everything remains the same… false would be the truth nothing has changed and false would be the belief such things like economics or policies affecting our lives could ever be shifted as “We” look on… or back.
Do you remember voting on or for N.A.F.T.A., I don’t. The “History channel/history.com” says Pres. Bill Clinton signed it into law ‘Dec 8th, 1993.’ How can most people buy this when it was Pres. George H. W. Bush, Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney and Mexican Pres. Carlos Salinas on Dec 17th, 1992, in San Antonio, Texas, that first signed it. It then needed to be ratified. Even though Pres. Bush (41) fast-tracked the initial signing of NAFTA the blame was laid on Pres. Clinton, according to the link above… and the short term memory of most Americans. A new day and a new way… worse still is if we go back and practice some of the things recognized in North America [historically] as being less than beneficial and ever more restrictive to what freedoms we have left- and the list is dwindling day by day.
When China can openly say to the world body,”We [the US] need to take fiscal steps to avoid default,” and direct the world to thoughts of its own- concern for what we desire will go out the window. The voice we once had on the world stage sounds tinny and shrill. The sounds of our taking offense to the things “We” have allowed upon ourselves [by not holding the feet of our leaders (past and current) to the fires of indignation] do stall [even momentarily] the time and day “We” will completely lose the ability to say anything against the powers to be. If either side of the aisle thinks the American people [as a whole] will just roll over and not notice “We” are the ones getting kicked and they are contributing to cause and effect- they would be wrong. To make a point of policy against, be it Obamacare or not [something claimed to be: patterned after Romney’s Massachusetts Plan, insurance friendly and affordable but adding abortion issues to be a forced taxation without representation], is to not see it as a football it was- leaving you and I in the lurch. If it is insurance to continued relevance then the toil would have been worth the pain. Pity they don’t ask us before they take such pointed actions and the defeat affects us all. Shame on us for thinking it is just politics as usual… the time and day we are in precludes such ignorance to what is happening as being just as wrong as it was in the past- which led us to where we are today. Here is a free download [by freedom advocates] on what is coming to you very soon [this in pdf format] and either party has endorsed this. Is your town on the ICLEI list of global membership, just check here to find out.
So much for the freedom of choice… just as I see it!

When one thinks of America [the U.S. and not North America], one thinks of the freedom and rights one can have and attain as their own. To think of liberty and justice for all… and yet today, ‘We’ could be so wrong. Let me explain! There are cases in America where Muslim families that came here [seeking freedom from the cruelties of the oppressive qualities exerted by Sharia law] find themselves still afflicted by its control over them- even when it comes in conflict with the legality of our own public policy, court decisions or the Constitutionality of it happening in America. How is this possible? Is it a conspiracy [YEAH, I know… the ‘C’ word] among judges to defer to its usage when question arises to being Muslim first- before being American. I see this as a miscarriage of justice and a travesty to our legal system, where and when our own laws would stop being used by reason of nullification to their relevance. Are “We” putting our children “in harm’s way” to ensure: the continuation of our loss of identity, declaring our legal system unable to be useful or even ineligible to be applied, slighting the understanding of ‘The Great Writ [Habeus Corpus, and this stemming from Judeo-christian beliefs],” even denying the protections afforded others under our legal system as we know it to be? If it is attempting to become ‘separate but equal’ again then we are watching the demise of that which made us a beacon to look up to… and “We” shall see the return of ‘Jim Crow’ in our lifetime.

Imagine serving your country, this one,
and when you go to a memorial, they say,
“Sorry, it’s closed.” This is happening as
the government is shut down [what the hay],
there is no understanding what was given
to be able to have their say, one should pray…
to know nothing of the respect of liberty
which is due is to think you know and bray,
be you elephant or donkey… there should never
be a blockage to liberty’s honor in our way,
disrespect shown our warriors by any of
our own government: black, white or grey
is a slap to our sense of valued consciousness…
and leaves DC to its own nuts in the drey.
Drey: nest of a squirrel
Can there be no understanding so inclusive as one that would include liberty for one over another, spiting those who served [where is dignity and respect here], and yet claim it to be the “flame of liberty it was meant to be for everyone?” It was OK to deny Veterans, in DC, but OK for “Camino Americano” to assemble [on the National Mall], in DC, for an amnesty rally! Shame on you DC… no bastion of liberty are you exemplifying but a den of vipers and thieves [thieves of honor denied our servicemen and women], with prima face evidence for showing the most heinous display of cruelty ever committed against our own this country has ever seen- against the best this country has ever known.
See the news articles for yourself [or commentary] and come to your own conclusions.
I bear no grudge against my Mexican ‘Brothers and Sisters’ here but see DC as trying to make a political football out of both Veterans and any other they might like to try and use- this is everyone of us. I respect Vets and the service they have given us with their lives… in order for us all to gain a voice but when DC would attempt to pit one against another for this same liberty and call it dignified [just like corporate America waving a flag and hiring whomever they will] it makes a mockery of the ideals this country has stood for- void of hope on “An American Road.” Let’s see the game they play on US as We look on this- seeking an ‘Honorable Discharge’ of justice for all.
