The “Paniolo” came first… to “Cowboy” up!

To give honor to the legacy of who we are

we will need to be less restricted by view,

this is when perception of any issue turns

into something more some how to ensue

but it is to dishonor our own ways of who

we are as we would focus on yet another,

no more important to us than our own way…

now things laid upon the feet of a Brother,

this is when we see ourselves as nothing

but the stereotype of what we are instead,

the who we are is not affected by condition

and out of place, being unaffected, or read

into… this “feel good” position assumes it

is the “better way” to broaden and embrace

the time and place, the spatial hemispheres

of thought stuck on nervous activity to trace,

this is much more, we are told, than it seems

if we start to believe our own PR on mind,

this is the kicker… the obsession detracts

from who we all are, difference then unkind. 

 

 

 

What do you think of when you think cowboy? Individualism! Hard working! Old Western high-tech! If perception is the basis for being for or against “the image of a Cowboy” is when what we feel, ourselves… if negative, is transferred to another, and if positive will bring no need to assault anyone or be upset by the image.

 

The opposite holds true, enamored with a specific life or lifestyle might have you emulate it to be a part of it- to have it for yourself.

 

This opinion will skirt on the fringes of psychology… the bedrock of reason, and ruminate on “feelings” and emotion- as feelings impact our actions. Under the heading of “Changing thought” (at this link) is found this line of thought.

 

If you can interrupt these useless and often irrational thoughts you will not have to feel the negative emotions associated with those thoughts.

 

This is denial… when he raises his ugly head!

 

So, thoughts can become feelings… and feelings can influence our actions. This becomes the truest reason found to support the claim,”We are what we think we are”. Is this entirely true? When two people get married there are six pairs of shoes, three pairs for the man he was, the one he is and the one she hopes he will become. The same works for the Groom here. This comes back to how we perceive it to be. In reality, difference is all we have in common and then how we react to it (our own behavior caused by something real or imagined).

 

This should help seal the deal!

 

To say one sees a pattern or shape of something in anything is vagueness expounded on at the very least! Does that cloud look like a rabbit to you too… or a horse with long ears?

 

When it comes to “Cowboys” though, historically speaking, I think of Hawaii. The history of America’s first Cowboys, the Paniolo, were trained by Mexican-Spanish vaqueros… already a heritage steeped with colorful influence and tradition. I also think of Parker Ranch… I knew one of the family and worked with him in my “Culinary” years at the Flamingo Hilton, Laughlin, NV.- a Butcher named Sam.

 

Hawaiian Cowboy, Paniolo: 1832

(from a Spanish influence)

Cowboys in the Pacific Northwest: 1846

… and in California and Texas: 1848

It is the same banter,

the canter of a dead horse…

and whining to outcome,

 

when you can just take

the life without respect to

a country’s laws, so dumb,

 

try that in any other…

my Brother, my Sister and

find peace to be gladsome,

 

the enemy supposes to 

offer you a glittered utopia

but pyrite… cost to loathsome,

 

the ideals of our Founding

now hang in the balance…

end rush seen as their endgame.

 

The complaint in the West has essentially become the same as we see predominately in, around and about Israel. This is the “progressive” thought… associated to and from Communist thought- Marxism to be precise!

 

When “Progressive is to Maplethorpe” what “Whipped cream is to strawberry shortcake”… we should re-think why and what it portends/means to be “Progressive”, shouldn’t we?

 

The quote above is meant to be one which questions what we believe to be truthful… or not! How about you, what do you believe? The line below comes from the link above. It is for this reason I’m thankful Hillary did not get the presidency… more of the same policies practiced by Obama- to lead us closer to our demise as a country.

 

During the 1990s, the DSA gave the Clinton administration an overall rating of C-, “less than satisfactory”.

 

I’d guess today the Clintons would score higher… being that Hillary aided a sitting President (Obama) to help pass (aided and abetted) UN Resolution 16/18 (an international political cause), and the DSA calls the actions of Israel comparable to apartheid. Look below for the latest example (first… and through this link). Here is an Editorial/Opinion from Jerusalem addressing the issue (clearly) or this one. Since it is gaining in popularity, to use articles from the Guardian (a UK publication), let’s also provide the flip-side of the coin (the US edition) in this debacle. Also, if the UK is going to be thought of as a favorable source to turn one’s head… then I’ll give you two more quotes to settle down with and digest them thoroughly- found with Margaret Thatcher and Winston Churchill.

 

When you can speak for one group and end up causing deleterious effects on others (any others) is when the words will be used to: denigrate Jews, stand against Israel and oppose the living God. How much chance do you give this or would you see to it as being beneficial?

 

Let’s rob from the rich… and keep it!

 

On talking with God Part I

1 Comment

 

Have you need to doubt… found you

where you’ll worry more than faith

can carry you… find the time to pray,

my knowledge turns to sin if I ever

think my self sufficiency is always

enough… this the failure to take away,

preoccupied with things this life has

instead of the needs of others, as they 

do… the Spirit helps us and does say,

find Jesus is always there… to aid us in

prayer, teach us to talk to you Dear LORD,

from the heart and lead us as you may,

open up to all the troubles we will face,

know we can’t do it without the Spirit

involved… ask Him to cause and sway,

find the peace of renewed commitment and

openness with God you were meant to have…

it has been available to you each new day.

 

 

To God give the glory and honor first, for He desires us to say and feel the truth of it… and God wants to hear it from His own. Then make your petition… to speak of your needs, and make sure to include your confession of anything known to be wrong- to clear the air, your heart and your actions. The fact you could be tempted again means we could all fail (the strength to avoid temptations already comes from God). It is for this very reason we must find the courage to forgive those that might have wronged you (perceived or not) and love, God’s love, is more than sufficient for us to share with everyone- can we not get more?

Just remember how it is… and will continue to be in Iran, as hardliners gain in the power they have, and women dancing in public (even at eight years old) is considered an “immoral” act. Below is a very brief abstract from the link above.

 

In Iran, sharia law dictates that grown women – an age that is set at nine years old – are forbidden to dance in front of anyone but their husbands.

 

According to the UN, only 5 percent of cases involving violence against women actually go to court. See here an article on what is being called “Women’s Rights” or “Domestic Violence” and not “Human Rights” or something more appropriate and less biased to begin with.

 

This is a new high in how low, depravity, we have fallen already. Remember this? Thanks for supporting the human struggle to exist at all!

 

Planned Parenthood calls a human baby a fetus (to be soon aborted/snuffed) or just to be tissue and sounds so de-humanizing. What about the “human Rights” of the unborn… or soon to be born [the Jewish understanding is “Human life” under construction]? So, you can clearly see if life is valued: children would be cherished and not treated as property, defended and not exploited, and lastly… beheld as the blessing they are- gifts of God.

 

So easily exploited are children… without normal protections in place. Then again, it does come down to what is understood as normal here!

 

 

slavery is still alive… and we just had Juneteenth, supporting the end of slavery in Texas, USA.

 

Without God… you will see more and more questionable activity or actions taken against people for their beliefs. The list of people to be persecuted will continue to grow until everyone is forced to submit, and at that point “free will” becomes a thing of the past. The kingdom of God is not subject to: the dictates or beliefs of man, an expiration date… it will not end, and “LOVE” will last throughout eternity.

 

Imagine looking at nine year olds for marriage… this is not what God calls normal behavior.

 

P.S., As a Christian… I’m to love my enemy also- a very high standard to live with and for! This doesn’t mean I have to like the actions someone takes but I do have to love them. This is what God has told us to do… unless you do not have the same God… the same belief… or look at what love means to a Christian believer. If your God is not the God of love then we should be able to tell the differences; which will stand out and be apart from love… to be (separated) for all eternity. The spirit lives on and you will either be with God (forever) or without Him!

The sky is falling… or is it?

Net neutrality is the new “tar-baby” to kick at but it comes down to: how it is perceived, what each individual is advocating and promoting… either for or against, and expectations based on beliefs or experiences of the past. It would be a pretty broad brush to paint one into a corner over if net neutrality is not maintained, and when any change would be seen as something unwelcome or not desired. What I don’t understand is how one party can be for freedom of speech but not be bothered unless it becomes bothersome to its: perspective, ideology and overt manner (the squeaky wheel or noisiest child syndrome). What main-stream liberals (I use the term loosely) need to realize is what they offer with their support and voice to… for a cause that would deny them the right to speak out! Imagine that!

Is this “old hat” or just the same old “duck and dodge” of the past… and seen here?

Even “Wired” did a piece on it back in 2012 and an old one for me too.

The image came from this article here (Fortune.com)… seen below.

 

WASHINGTON, DC – FEBRUARY 04: A sign that reads “Protect Net Neutrality& Reclassify Title II is on display during a news conference on Capitol Hill, February 4. 2015 in Washington, DC. Senate Democrats are calling on the Federal Communications Commission to reclassify the transmission component of broadband Internet access as a telecommunications service under Title II of the Telecommunications Act. to prevent broadband providers from creating Internet fast lanes for those who can pay and enforce open internet protections.

What we really got… a little common sense will go a long way, won’t it?

 

Net neutrality breakdown

Still think neutrality is like transparency too, right?

Spoken to a mind like the Bastille

Closed off, isolated and indifferent to where or how

the epicurean delights ensnare the appetites of now…

thrown caution to the winds of change if they are for

the sake of change itself, no dredging for the scow.

No, this time we need to play openly, American or

Communist… to pray openly, to God or take a knee,

the offensiveness is to call all the same and to think

I see nothing wrong with that, for you as it’s for me!

Did you even consider God in this at all… it will not

be left up to us to decide… in a matter of the Spiritual

realm, something we know nothing about unless it

comes by way of the word- an eternity and survival,

but as hard as the caissons built upon… the fortress

though yet remote and visited, named, data venia,

in Latin… with due respect, used before disagreeing

with someone… with the permanence of using henna,

this is the time to make historic the commonness we

share in the human family to be the warmth of fire

but not to say one should be harmed if they will not

serve the same argument or message, who the Liar?

 

The Bastille, an armory and prison in Paris, was a symbol to the people of France representing years of abuse by the monarchy. The commoners stormed and dismantled the Bastille looking for gunpowder and to free political prisoners – they killed the commander and freed the prisoners. This demonstration of empowerment was a wake-up call to Louis XVI and posed a challenge to the existence of the monarchy. This action became the flashpoint of the Revolution.

 

 

The question begs to be asked,”Can I know contentment and follow Jesus?” The clear answer is Yes!

 [Below is from this source and resourced at the bottom of the page under “Commentary Critical and Explanatory on the Whole Bible.”]

content–The Greek, literally expresses “independent of others, and having sufficiency in one’s self.” But Christianity has raised the term above the haughty self-sufficiency of the heathen Stoic to the contentment of the Christian, whose sufficiency is not in self, but in God ( 2 Corinthians 3:5 , 1 Timothy 6:6 1 Timothy 6:8 , Hebrews 13:5 ; compare Jeremiah 2:36 , 45:5 ).

Latin… 

esse quam videri: to be, rather than to seem 

_______

ex silencio: In general, the claim that the absence of something demonstrates the proof of a proposition. Also an argument based on the assumption that someone’s silence on a matter suggests (“proves” when a logical fallacy) that person’s ignorance of the matter or their inability to counter argue validly.

DISCLAIMER: With reference to henna given in the body of work, please know there can be complications from henna if there is  a Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency. See this through the hyper-link here.

We are drawing nearer the day, finding to include God in our service to God is to find: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness and faithfulness… and our love For Him (for He alone is worthy of our praise) as open as the Book we learn from. From hearers of the word to doers of the word- beyond childish to mature in our belief.

 

 

Isaiah 17:7 KJV

7 At that day shall a man look to his Maker, and his eyes shall have respect to the Holy One of Israel.

 

Philippians 4:11 KJV

11 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.

25 But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons.

The fine grained nature of perception

Schizophrenia was not the intended goal,

the traits of it so unbecoming of any party

if they are all that remain, a residual, when:

whining is preferable or even flaunted hardy,

notion to presuppose tea leaves can and

will indeed tell us the future… efforts dodgy

and so Clinton, where expectation and a given

reality shred, the chasm of morals too stodgy,

as even with DACA when the desired look

was the appearance of concern, conditional

to support given as the rubber yields to the

Street and no skid-marks to change volitional,

the rebellious nature speaks more to ego than

not and to less safety or freedom than we had…

to a space of time nearer the conclusion of the 

mundane or glory of eternity to be thought bad,

this gains us the ground on which to fly the

banners of belief, the childish tantrums to much…

to much to bear and witness, either true of the 

character or no where close to being a mensch.

 

 

schizophrenia… a long-term mental disorder of a type involving a breakdown in the relation between thought, emotion, and behavior, leading to faulty perception, inappropriate actions and feelings, withdrawal from reality and personal relationships into fantasy and delusion, and a sense of mental fragmentation.

(in general use) a mentality or approach characterized by inconsistent or contradictory elements.

[Definition above comes from the Apple Dictionary]

 

Ever heard of… The conceptual constraint? 

[The abstract below is found at the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, the link here and under #2.]

But the conceptual constraint does not depend upon adopting any particular theory of content. Its plausibility stems, rather, from the conjunction of two thoughts.

  1. In specifying what a thinker believes, what a perceiver perceives or what a speaker is saying by uttering a certain sentence in a particular context one has to be as faithful as possible to how that thinker, perceiver or speaker apprehends the world.
  1. How a thinker, perceiver or speaker apprehends the world in having beliefs about it, perceiving it or speaking about it is a function of the concepts he possesses.

When thought, emotion or behavior of mankind are left in tatters, and no relationship exists between them to perceive, but the psychology of their actions is politicized or considered worthy of worship- is when society will lose its perspectival on the meaning of personal choice or to gauge actions of God or of man himself.

This is not the time to be double-minded… split-minded or found wrong- in light of what God has told us in “The Word of God”- God will even save you from yourself. If the reflection in the mirror becomes the only object you choose to satisfy, thus distorting the phenomenon, you have already lost the viewpoint of God being first in everything you’d do.

Here is another public viewpoint on Conceptual constraints, by David Moshman, University of Nebraska- Lincoln, December 2001,”Conceptual constraints on thinking about genocide”.

 

Romans 1:16 KJV

Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

 

Mark 12:17 And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s. And they marvelled at him.

 

Nothing can be stranger than fiction but the truth!

Yes… Vets have feelings too and often beliefs which run deep!

 

When Veterans come out to protest what President Trump said, on Memorial Day, May 28th, 2018… and, rest assured, some will find anything he does worth a protest. Yes, He is full of his accomplishments but I’ve seen him do more to turn this country back around from the way things were done before him. For this… and this Veteran’s heart, my hat goes off to him and all he would like to do to recoup American losses- even the recent atrocities of the last ten years.

Would you want to deprive American families of our legacy… Memorials shut down in DC.

Allies denied our support… just waiting for an American President to side with Israel again.

The Russian-Collusion thing, as the Russian lawyer was allowed in by Loretta Lynches DOJ VISA… and the small players gained ground and flung it.

 

If anything we should honor, respect and acknowledge those that went before us- so we can enjoy the freedom we have in a manner we choose.

 

I’m sure many of these same Vets take as much offense to: a removal of the final words of the oath of fidelity ( “… so help me God”) by the Air Force, an about face… is to place a question on a historic US military practice observed and acted on for many years or to a sentiment only those in the military might fully understand… about being a traitor to what we should stand for, as in the case of Jane Fonda. Jane went Communist, and I look upon the American landscape (today) to see the growing pains of an old enemy resurfacing, don’t you?

 

Another traitor is in the picture… you come to your own conclusion!
