Between the rising sun and hardheartedness

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!

Having whispered words of injustice

Leave a comment

 

 

Can thee not believeth thine own manner 

to perceive men as but fools to virtue?

’Tis folly born new to remove free will to 

caste and subjugation sooner to be true!

Betrayal to flag and country as high as the

corruption will go… to be led by the highest

in Office, all below are expected to follow the 

lead of indifference or failest thou the test. 

As this speaks more to whispered words of

injustice than be “Justice” to soon achieved,

infiltration was the penetration of the veils of 

freedoms designed and grown to be relieved.

Naught but propaganda acted on… the surety 

of lies to be told as truth by (the) suggestion,

the suggestion hinted at the thoughts of “old”

ideals, morals regulated, an on vine elation

over freedom spoken of so loosely lest

not applauded when religion pitted against

one another is tossed aside or denied as it

takes bias and pretends to be virtuous, resist,

for if we are not fools for virtue then vice…

as if no one individual could tell one other

they must do it this way or die… what then?

Is this not folly to think one right rather than

God’s own way, to tell us how He wants us

to be… or believe our own propaganda’s play,

if you do not remain until the movie is over

there’ll be no credit but our own to claim or say?

 

 

The pot just called the kettle black! From an article in USA TODAY (found here but in an abstract below)… where Chelsea Clinton derides the President.

 

Chelsea Clinton told The Guardian the Trump administration “not only mainstreamed hate, but mainlined it.” And she blamed a rise in school bullying, as cited by the by the Southern Poverty Law Center, on an atmosphere created and encouraged by Trump.

 

This was one day before Memorial Day, 2018… in the US- a time to remember and value those that allowed the Right to Free Speech to continue- with hopes for a continuation of country and manner of good will for our fellow man. You see, we can only express “free speech”, as it was meant to be, if we do not: build up hate as a barrier, act in a fashion to deprive another their “Right” to do the same, or exert one’s influence… to have people act on it- even pay for it! To think “hate” will simply lower its head and leave us whimpering all the while is childish. To think one party can help resolve it when it takes: both hands to clap, to eyes to get a clear understanding of what we think we see, or two feet moving in the same direction they’ve agreed on… and we are striving to get over the past by moving forward.

 

Hate crimes statistics most would not share, are down!

 

Jews are the hardest hit by Hate Crimes.

 

What is known about the creation of the word,”Islamophobia” and a view from the right and one of my own.

 

What will we look for and call it truth if not truth itself?

 

This is what “Memorial Day” is to me… pleased to look on your own will- if you are half-inclined to do so!

 

To Vets everywhere… a new outlook! The old one didn’t work!

 

Really… and this is helping here?

 

No more of this under our noses or thought acceptable for your kids too! #RUReady?

The child walks amid heaps of illusions

Leave a comment

Attended by aid to cause of delusion and wry

glory of life, momentarily spared, but not saved,

this is when the psycho-babble of sycophants is

declared to sustain this life but it is to the paved

road so wide as to lure any and all concerned so…

with life at all, not even considering one’s soul,

this is where the path… the way to God then by-

passed en mass, Jesus the Hebrew God, no foal

for a war horse… not to deceive the masses as

some would be the god of all I see, to perceive…

and tell more lies in the end than in the garden

with one, the fall, no faith came for one to believe,

this then is the relief of belief without measure, to

perceive man as a fool for virtue or vice, so wrong,

this is to think there is a field beyond this life… one

we can meet to discuss each mortal idea so long.

 

 

Some very noteworthy Ralph Waldo Emerson quotes… listed below and sourced.

 

“I remarked especially the mimetic habit with Nature, on new instruments, hums her old tunes, making night to mimic day, and chemistry to ape vegetation.”

“The senses interfere everywhere and mix their own structure with all they report of.”

“We fancy that our civilization has got on far, but we still come back to our primers.”

“We live by our imaginations, by our admirations, by our sentiments, the child walks amid heaps of illusions, which he does not like to have disturbed.”

“The intellect is stimulated by the statement of truth in a trope, and the will by clothing the laws of life in illusions.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson, “The Works of Ralph Waldo Emerson”, 568 pages Published 1920 by Black’s Readers Service Company (first published in 1840), New York, N.Y., quotes from abstracts of: Essays, Illusions, p.416- 422 respectively.

 

Something about old books, isn’t there?

 

P.S. This embodiment is dedicated to the memory of Philip Roth (March 19, 1933- May 22, 2018), an American novelist, and the passion for writing… inspired by notables of literature such as he was. Realizing Roth to receive the 2001 Franz Kafka Prize… most noteworthy by itself. May your own inkwell never dry!

“Those that give up some freedom for some

security deserve neither.”

Ben Franklin

 

How hard is it to conceive one party

could be used, to think they were superior

to the other, and made to believe they 

were, in fact and deed, the only one right…

and led to such conclusion… to add to the

confusion, behind their backs… those that

led them followed a different path than

the followers saw within the other

party too, as both were told one thing

but the leaders did plan for the undoing

of party lines… both seen as the same,

simply the people, as a whole, to manipulate…

complete disregard for the stated ideals,

answering to no one and dragging them

down… terror is the nature of the game,

still… one party will be used, after their

man lost, as the agitators… the pent up

resentment is then the tool to hone, to

sharpen and be used as the seething hate

can be directed… the party will then be

subjected to the irrational directives

given them, still thinking they are right…

to be used as the reason to seal our fate.

 

 

Deuteronomy 12:8 Ye shall not do after all the things that we do here this day, every man whatsoever is right in his own eyes.

 

Judges 17:6 In those days there was no king in Israel, but every man did that which was right in his own eyes.

 

1 Corinthians 2:12 What we have received is not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may understand what God has freely given us.

 

A Sermon, Sermon XXIX, The Importance Of The Inquiry, How Shall Man Be Just With God?

 

[Below comes by an abstract, taken from this source.]

There can be no real prosperity or progress in a nation, a home, or a soul, unless there be peace. Jesus Christ came to restore peace on earth, and peace in the soul, by restoring righteousness. Because He is Melchizedek, King of Righteousness, He reigns as King of Salem, King of Peace (Heb 7:2). He so fulfills the promise the prophets held out: “A King shall reign in righteousness; and the work of righteousness shall be peace, and the effect of righteousness, quietness and assurance forever” (Isa 32:1, 17).

 

Joshua 9:25 And now, behold, we are in thine hand: as it seemeth good and right unto thee to do unto us, do.

 

Is it better to err with God or to err without God?

The “vig” story sails away from Nevada alone

If there has been something stolen from Nevada… the stay of execution for example, and it seems we’re not out of Kansas anymore. What will be next, gambling in Texas? In Arizona, under the azcentral.com banner is this, and how the interest in it is building. See what others might say on “the interest” in it here. One thing you can count on… Indian Casinos in Arizona will likely push to bargain such an anticipated event will be favorable for all. Sorry Nevada, here is to the days of Art Manteris… and the Superbook, at the Las Vegas Hilton. I happen to have worked for him 1993 through 1995, at the Race and Sports Book at the Flamingo Hilton, in Laughlin, NV.- quite a memory as two of those years were as a dual rate… Supervisor/Ticket Writer. The largest tip I ever received (split among all employees in the Book) was $2,500.00… a twin Q (Quinella)… and only two winning tickets out of five books. One was for the bettor and one for “the boys and girls” in the Book. How cool was that?

 

Ready or not Arizona, make way for… the rush to make Sports bets, legally, in Arizona has come!

 

From a “Vegas styled Book” to…

Mother’s Day, 2018

As this is Mother’s Day, 2018, I implore you to lavish some “LOVE” on your Mom… while you can. This is not something you would ever want to regret… that you didn’t take the time for her as she did for you. Just a thought! I do not have that luxury any more… but I was with her at her passing.

 

Calls of glory

 

Shallow breath turns life past response…

clinging to what is left before repose,

resplendent are the gates eternal calling…

the boundaries bridged we do suppose,

 

relief of Earthen cares to wane are falling…

the portals sight ahead and steady hymn,

angels sing for such calls of glory found…

as mere mortals hear sweet requiem.

 

Poem above is from here.

Master the media and it’s own medium
on the chords to impact your play…
throw in the lights of distraction, as they
appeal, then be mindful of what you say,
this is the expected norm of normality…
the attraction Du jour, the comfortable way,
for though the road has many lanes, in
America, views affect the effects of sway,
so sail with your sails full of the winds of
ages past, or the tempest of this our day,
strike no wrong against another so deemed
different when belief the same too we’d pray,
the bounty one has given us leaves no room
to think it proper to deny or cause disarray,
let there be no drama, surety of sharing is
felt when listening to each other’s dismay!

 

Do they sound like millennials here… and know they have an audience in China already. This is FYKE, an American band, socially and culturally inspired.

 

 

When it comes to displeasure is when something has been taken personally… even if it was never intended to be a source of confusion, aimed at anyone (a generalized statement), or there is something seen to bother one’s heart to point of hurt! Modern society would say,”It wasn’t directed at you but if you want to own it… then lace them boots up and wear’em, and don’t think twice about the outcome.”

 

This one is called: Favorite Mistake.

 

 

When silence is given by one to another there is the assumption one is right… but when it is offered as an explanation… the assumption dries up like autumn leaves.
