“The object of want… not need”

Leave a comment

The more I see in the media… the more I see why Hillary didn’t win. Comey did us a favor… and the media helped- churning story after story on the same thing… night after night. It  turned out to be more like a bad soap opera,”As our stomach turns.” Samuel Clemens had a saying,”If you don’t read the paper you are uninformed. If you do you are misinformed.”

 

Have we advanced so far… so much
we can no longer discern ‘eternity
in a daffodil1️⃣’… long past, to advanced
for that, turning in to turn to scrutiny…
the congress of unity removed by reversal
of fortune, the pendulum swings in its time,
to swing away from a proper complacency
is seen in the microcosm myopic as a crime…
the crime committed is loss, and the reaction
is an overreaction, Machiavellian in nature,
the scorched earth mentality seen by the
other party when its own fail us to nurture,
the romantics be damned… philosophy left
an ideal by the running heels of feeling,
the pettiness of ‘social justice’ an entitlement,
object of our want… not need, Indiana’s calling!
place no utensils on the table for the
unknown soldier, when the known are behind
and left… entombed for their naked trust
we’ve beggared… this truth we’ve yet to find,
and, renewed, we’d say we see everything
in anything… consumed then by our hate,
deriding by skills spent without concern
to loss but narrows life to a certain fate.

Must we be held captive to ‘rampant paranoia’ as it is seen coming from those with such a loathing hatred for POTUS Trump… they can’t stand it! Yes is the obvious answer… in light of First Amendment rights. Does it mean it is true, NO… or that we believe it- NO applies here also. The ‘Bum Steer’ of politics is not looking at the foibles in your own party but being hyper-critical of the other- to drink the punch intended for someone else! When you’d believe your own propaganda and the truth gets kicked away… we all lose ground!

 

Yes, I’m a Democrat too! I’m not just a ‘box-head’ variety Democrat… I’m a deplorable Veteran- one that handled ‘Classified’ material (hands on).

“When reaction holds the key”

Must we stoop to base emotions when responding (reacting) to what someone has: said, done or implied… even when to believe the perception we’d use is thought to be correct- and (yet) we might be wrong ourselves!

 

Tell unity the flag still waves for freedom…
emblematic of the discourse we face,
though distilled in darker days than these,
we shall overcome with much less disgrace.

Tell hope not to fail, encourage her own
with strength and fortitude of character,
found anew is this humble-pride we can
maintain without risk in troubles chancier.

Tell courage to endure… to hunker down
in the path of gale or storm we’d weather,
remember sure and long a calmer time…
storms passing ensures doubt’s whether.

Tell love to embrace what is good, to then
cling to wisdom over a lukewarm heart…
fickle though they’d be, at times, knowledge
of love and how to react is where to start.

Tell honor virtue is still sought for and will
be defended, not left an unwilling conscript,
when liberty for all (bound by love and goal
together) is strived for without such contempt.

 

If bigot and reactionary can be used interchangeably… it must come down to the bias we exert, the nature of the emphasis… even to who is affected and who gains from it!

 

Eight years of Bush led us to… eight years of Obama led us to… Trump!

 

See the words of the ex-President (unvarnished) about religion. Did you wish you knew this back then… but didn’t think it important?

 

 

 

“When ‘hate’ was driven by kind people”

4 Comments

Have we become more enamored with the ideal of togetherness only to forfeit the substance of what it means… to all of us?

 
When love becomes the carrot dangled in front
of us but not the reason the cart then moves…
no form of commitment to kindness exists, for
what is the burden borne without the naves1️⃣
to ease all thought… to fixate on what we are
told the goal is, by suggestion laid at our feet,
the truth be told… we’d be left ’the suckers’ for
hate was the goal we aid and do complete.

 

nave… noun, the hub of a wheel, root from Sanskrit… nābhis.

 
To finger point at Trump when white racists come out of the wood work (used as an axis or fulcrum) but not see the same thing elsewhere is to miss the point entirely. It becomes less about hate and more to aid one’s own convictions (or viewpoint) and lacks integrity to ‘kindness’ as it should be known or understood. Kindness, stemming from love (or togetherness), is rendered mute but ‘hate’ itself is then intensified- a polemic rises from the dust of indifference to the winds of ignorance. I stress ignorance here but mean it more as an action to ignore something… like the relative connection of ‘hate begetting hate’ and the frequency increasing as more incidents occur.

 
To see one thing (here) but not the same here!

 

To think ‘togetherness’ but not think about the source (organizer).

 

To demand the truth about Flynn but disregard the truth about ex-POTUS Obama and the Hillary connection.

 

 
A comment on Facebook… my own!
If you say you are voting for Hillary, an avowed globalist, you had better ‘hip yourself up’ to what UN Resolution 16/18 is all about. Hillary was instrumental, while working(?) for the US State Department(?), in arguably assisting: an outside organization, put forth efforts to promote an Agenda counter to American values (being based on a Judeo-Christian standard), to aid and abet ‘distinction based on bias’; which could be used to further erode US ‘free speech’ on US soil. UN Resolution 16/18 comes with two flaws… it fails to address violations coming from, and by, the ones it aids, and does not see itself having a bias but assumes to gain a stronger foothold, to clear the way, in seeking supremacy itself.

 

 
In all fairness (in kindness), here is what Snopes has come out with… over the same picture used to generate ‘more hate’ seen coming from: Berkeley, actions and some biased comments used to steer others to directed conclusions. This is as kind as it gets!

I can look on with admiration to accomplishments of friends and family… something I need to focus on myself. I’m going to be taking a course of study… opening a new vista to gain insight from and for ‘an up-grade’ for personal finances. Please know there is plenty to read from here, even to give some of it a historical perspective of veracity to claim(s) and time to ponder. You can look on at either of my three Blogs… found in the menu, under the Blog description, and through ‘About Inkedvocabulary (Russell D. Holder).’ You have a choice of: Contemporary (this one), Christian (the spirit lives eternal… where do you intend on spending it?) and a Renaissance themed Blog (with a modern mind attempting to write in old-English. Try it- it is not as easy as you might imagine it to be). I’ll be back as soon as I have had time to focus on improving my writing skills and gain a few tricks or two. Maybe meriting another Blog geared for skills to offer B2B businesses… and marketing my own as well.

“However… “

democratic-three-stooges

 

Don’t people remember some of our history under George W. Bush, with: ‘free speech zones’ making a comeback, torture being used under a Law Professor from Berkeley… John Yoo, or the 168 Democrats that signed on to H.R. 5122 against American values (then and now)? Even with people like: ex-Pres. George W. Bush (who some ’liberals’ are today lauding [amazingly] and seen below), Susan Nossel or Rep. Nancy Pelosi and her ‘Freudian slip,’ also seen below. I’ll bet they don’t remember Cindy Sheehan either! Journalism is better off when: it does not bend to advocacy journalism, incite a continuation of repeated stories fanning the flames of discontent (like they did in Missouri) or fail to tell all the facts… allowing for an intentional or misrepresentation of facts to a desired end- the train of thought stops here mentality. Either we have ‘free speech’ or we do not… the whole country is supposed to be a free speech zone, is it not? Stick to the facts!

 

 

 

 

When it comes to making claims Trump is wrong on what he is telling us… there is this… where the ‘However’ comes to rest, and quite telling of the bigger picture! Still think Obama is not trying to use his own method of deception or deceit on the American people at large? Guess again! It could be possible Obama might get arrested… see here but be warned [lots of inappropriate images accompany this last article]. Here is to a free press… and public opinion!

 

[As of March 7th, 2017, it was proven to be nothing more than a hoax… the warrant issued for ex-POTUS Obama’s arrest- much to the lament of this writer’s heart. I am under the opinion he did more against this country than anyone (ever) in the office can possibly imagine.]

Forgotten history!

Shall we settle for disagreeing… for this is what incites
and stirs up controversy… instead of taking the high road
to: equality, respect and seeking a moral and honorable
status for the next generation is established by the in-road
of inclusion, this will not be seen if people like Rep. Lewis
continue to maintain Trump is not a ‘legitimate president,’
this view does not give the US its strength to see ahead or
to face obstacles, a step back on the bridge in Selma lent,
what happened to lose sight of the greater goal,”The Dream”
to equality by a Civil Rights Leader to desire segregation
over accepting loss by Party failure, thinking any of us as
Americans first are any more deplorable than discrimination.

 

Words of the POTUS before Jan. 20th, 2017, regarding tweets… but can also be applied to the naivety of disregarding our own history before engaging in biased thoughts of our own time (today)- our own legacy slighted and forgotten.

 

“We are moving into an era where a lot of people get their information through tweets and soundbites and some headline that comes over their phone,” the president said. “There’s a power in that. There’s also a danger — what generates a headline or stirs up a controversy and gets attention isn’t the same as the process required to actually solve the problem.”
He warned people not to “underestimate the guy” and urged congressional Republicans and Trump supporters around the country to be sure “that as we go forward, certain norms, certain institutional traditions don’t get eroded, because there’s a reason they’re in place.”

 

[Please keep in mind one thing about Rep. John Lewis, this is a man that stood up for ‘Civil Rights’, a man of character and strength to face adversaries against equality (in the past). PLEASE NOTE: Nothing was said when a POTUS violated the US Constitution… when POTUS Obama co-hosted a summit meeting at the UN… there was silence! Nothing was said when POTUS Obama misled America and ignored Congress either!

To see a man, a Black man… a Representative of the people, wonder if this country is facing an uncertainty of an ‘ill-legitimate president’ and would base this (on speculative Russian influence vs. the failings of Party or candidate) as his personal reason for not attending a Presidential Inauguration? Is this not the equivalent to taking a knee during the National Anthem? Just a thought, and it is little wonder as to ‘why’ the Democratic Party [my own Party… I did not vote for Hillary] lost the election.

[What is found below the line was added on Jan. 18th, 2017… and in this writer’s mind as pertinent to topic as any might view them to be. For the sake of supposition, it is the theater of the minds being affected by actions of political figures in question- are they as benign as they’d appear to be or left in the hollow interior of contempt… believing only in the concepts of an ideology (in this case Liberalism) but altering the application of it to suit their own views? If this is the case, then what we would have done, in the US… and by vote in a democracy, is to impede the progression of a foisted alternative to Liberalism by libertines- those out for themselves. If, in fact, as it is (or would seem to be) falsely thought ‘the essence of liberalism is tolerance’, then why is there such angst being expressed by the left, and… can one explain why there is more of a prevailing connection with Liberalism and anarchy?]

 
“ … deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.”
US Declaration of Independence

 
Tolerant: open-minded, unprejudiced, understanding, forgiving

 

Tolerate: permit, accept

 

An article at American Thinker on ‘Free Speech’ and those affected by not being big enough to participate, one of those effected was Francine Prose.

 

[Found under Individualism]

 

Liberalism comes in many forms. According to John N. Gray, the essence of liberalism is toleration of different beliefs and of different ideas as to what constitutes a good life.
[Found under Harm principle]

 

Harm can also result from a failure to meet an obligation. Morality generates obligations. Duty may be exacted from a person in the same way as a debt, and it is part of the notion of duty that a person may be rightfully compelled to fulfill it.

There were a couple of reasons I could not vote for Hillary: duplicity by Party, overt lies about American lives lost and what actually happened in Benghazi, aid and assistance offered to an International cause… outside of the concerns (scope) of US policy for American interests (American by nature), and her affront to justice by using (by [possible] influence peddling) an FBI Director… one unwilling to pass the illegal nature of ‘mishandling Classified material’ off to the Justice Dept. for scrutiny of truth by claim.

This is not a leading role… how do you harm US interests, including national security
at the UN when you show none to an ally… by desertion, inferiority and vulnerability,
Is this simply put, another lead from behind… such crap, leaders stand in front to lead…
not behind, as cowards… so timid or afraid, this is an end game play with full speed.

 
See the truth to what was done to Israel, the US and all Americans… as harmful. This even affects the legality and timeframe of Palestinians themselves… to a hoped for gain now a set-back- a passport to failure and (yet) more violence and unstability.

 

Twenty years of politics as usual... far from it!
