"The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." Orwell
"Men are so simple of mind and so dominated by immediate needs that the deceitful man can easily find those ready to be deceived."
Machiavelli"The secret of freedom lies in educating people, whereas the secret of tyranny is in keeping them ignorant" Robespierre
Yay! Fun! I was hoping you'd do something like this.I didn't look for acrostics, should I?Now, one comment from someone (me) who can't write (but I read): in poetry it is NOT the case all lines should end with punctuation. Remove the commas from those lines that run into the next line per the normal rules of literature, and you'll find it reads much better! (if this is for tomorrow The Herald, do it quick!)
Twas the week after Christmas and all through the land, not a poor family was cared for or given a hand.Their stockings hung empty awaiting financial aid, but they soon realized the government check would not be paid.And then on the TV they heard a wonderful word that soon we would be free from the "terrible turd". They all laughed as they cried "lock him up and thank God Joe has arrived".
Only a mere 3 weeks and there will be that satisfying sound at the end of the flush of the largest turd since, well, Krakatoa?I think people will be utterly amazed at how fast the forget the one we fired.But now, for a little while anyway, "Georgia On My Mind".
Dante look out, and Petrarch too, 'cause Dr. "El Sid" Schwab, always knows what to do!
Excellent work Dr. Schwab. Maybe not a second career but I liked it. It included all of the many important criminal and almost criminal things that happened. I love the last line. Happy New Year!
Thanks! I'm not sure everyone made it through to the last line.
"No longer a nation that’s in it together," That's the most costly thing of all.I wonder about these people on the alt right often. I really think about it in an attempt at understanding them.The only thing I am somewhat sure of is why they were not aborted.These people are cruel and self centered period. How can you separate families and cage children??? You have to be sick. A monster. I'm sorry but I am giving no quarter to people like that. None...None. Stay in your "shithole" state and stop taking blue state tax dollars to support your "shithole" state policies.Naw, that'll never happen. They want everything. They want what you got and are willing to take it by force after a couple brew-skis.I have zero tolerance for these people anymore. You give an inch and they want 'merca. They want you to be subservient to them at the end of an AR-15 barrel. You can't reason with people like that. They are unreasonable therefore you are forced to meet them on that set of terms. I know what cops do...They shoot a hale of bullets at a guy holding nothing but car keys and a cell phone. Thank gawd I never carry keys and a cell phone in my hands at the same time...and I am white...Whewwwww! Lucky me.Oh...And tear gassing peaceful protestors...Tear gassing in war is against the Geneva Convention. It's a war crime to use CS gas in war. But if ya got a pesky clump of protestors ruining your tee time? Gas them into submission is always the first response. Clubs and guns soon to follow. And if the cops seem to be idolizing the alt right...Well too bad. They have a tough job so there. Having a tough job allows you to be above the law. Especially if you are in fact the law.We got a lot of stuff to fix and it won't get done with the people we have in charge. I'm tired of these macabre marathons with time where people hang on because the wrong person is POTUS. Being 70 is not the prime of anyone's career. I'm sick of it. Our country deserves better.
Here's the skinny on the alt right and their twisted "beliefs"...and yes...Even on their religious hypocrisy.Eat up!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7SeCESjJjho
